My frustration mirrors yours in that I can never get a straight answer, though I can't be sure because the answers are so obscure that I'm unsure if
my questions are addressed or not. It's all this big game where someone who pretends to know something hints that if I just look around the corner
over there (jerks head with an enigmatic smile) then, if I'm only SMART enough, I may learn something. And I don't like being categorized any more
than anyone else does here. You're not the only intelligent guy in the universe.
Long time ago I thought the joke was funny. When I held a classified job I'd tell my daughter, "Sweetie, I could tell you what I do, but then I'd
have to kill you." Ha ha. Funny. Then my kid grew up and got a job classified more highly than I ever had and she'd tell me, "Dad, I could tell you
what I do, but then I'd have to kill you." Ha ha. Funny. OK, we all had our laugh. Well, the joke is over. It's no longer funny.
My objection stands. I can well understand the need to keep secrets. I really don't have a problem with that per se. We want to ferret out the truth
because we think it might be relevant to our lives. Indeed, we paid for it. And if our Black Ops guys really are sitting on technology that could help
the citizens of this planet, such as transportation, 'extended' travel, and energy sources, and they are not releasing it, then they will be
condemned. If they are keeping these sorts of things secret, that is contemptible. THAT'S the criminal nature of this. They're using OUR treasure to
build toys they won't share.
I don't remember who said it, but the phrase goes something like this: "Civilization is a race between technology and catastrophe." Well, we could
use a dose of technology. Now. Meanwhile, without it, we're making idiotic decisions based on false science, such as this global warming fiasco which
has the capability of absolutely killing our civilization based on false science.
There is certainly a place for theoretical research that 'might' lead somewhere, but you and I both know this is beyond theoretical It's practical
techniology that is working, field-tested, and functional. If you can't turn this knowledge into a fleet that can give us a significant edge, you're
wasting our time. (I mean the plural you. You, personally, and I have nothing to say about it. It angers me that we may have the cvapability of making
significant changes that could benefit all of us, but 'we' are too obsessed with secrecy to make it happen.
