Do you realize how hard it is to be an SS agent? Those guys paid there dues.
Actually, I wouldn't be so certain about that. SS was the first agency to grab me after taking my federal exams. I didn't want to work for them and the whole trick with my interview was convincing them not to take me without turning them down and hurting my eligibility to work for another agency. It's true that my offer wasn't for presidential bodyguard duty and the actual functions I would be performing was not fully disclosed to me at the time. There was a reason I was in-demand but I was certainly nobody special nor highly educated or credentialed.
That cost me some time after the Secret Service claimed me and took me off the hiring register but on the next go-around I got to where I wanted to go, sort of. The next trick was to keep from being made into some sort of federal cop for one agency or another. I had no desire to be any kind of authority figure. Eventually I found a really nice fit.
Dr. Paul and I seem to see eye-to-eye on a number of levels. Too bad we never met. He has my vote though.
