That phenomenon does truly interest me. The rapid decline that people seem to go through in just 4-8 years as POTUS. It might just be an anomaly based
upon the fact that we tend to elect guys in their forties to the office and nature is just kicking their butts at the appropriate point in their
And I'd imagine the stresses a POTUS faces are unreal. We stress ourselves out here
just speculating about things - imagine really, truly,
getting a daily briefing with the actual reality of it all? That has to be an enormous stressor.
And since we're in skunkworks... even though it's not one of my pet subjects. Imagine if there really were aliens at Roswell, or any of the myriad of
other things we speculate about... and you got a job where they said "Yup, sure is real. In fact you've got a meeting with an ambassador from their
planet next week. Oh, and by the way, you can never tell a soul about it and if you do they'll wipe our entire planet out in less and ten seconds...."
Or something along those lines...
Imagine knowing the truths of things and NOT being able to tell them to anyone! I'm not a gossip by nature. But, seriously, if I found out the answer
to a highly controversial and long standing question... it would KILL me to have to keep it to myself.
And intrigues? Imagine taking office and finding out something like "Oh, Putin? Naw, that dude was born in Maine and we planted him in the USSR way
back in the day. He's our insider in Russia" or something. Just having paradigms, predispositions, and beliefs shattered, even if you can keep a
secret, can push a person into full on PTSD mode.
It boggles the mind to just sit and imagine what might be locked in these guys heads, eating away at their minds and souls.
