    State Of The Union Pawns

    If you were contacted to go to the State Of The Union Address to be used as a pawn by the President, would you go?

    And to think this is a "worthy thread on this forum".


    Absolutely terrifying.

    I thought this thread was titled, "State of the Union Pwns".

    I'm disappointed.

    I would. I'd love to sit in the gallery and get the VIP treatment at such an event, regardless of who is POTUS. I'm a pomp and circumstance girl.

    If I had done something particularly worthy of being there sure.

    Having wrote a letter saying my life sucked until your highness pushed certain laws, however, does not qualify.

    nope.
    it doesn't matter who El Presidente is, there's nothing that could get me to DC to sit in on any of their little political circus games.

    in an alternate universe, where these addresses actually meant something.. maybe.... but these current campaigns speeches disguised as SoTU addresses are simple political games, nothing more, nothing less.

    pomp and circumstance is kinda cool...( I'm a big fan of military pomp and circumstance)... it's the idea of being near all those sharks, cutthroats, assholes, and generally bad people that drives me nuts....the "privileged elite" bug me

    i'd never go to some conference of CEOs either.. for much the same reason.... (although, I could say what i want to the CEO's without fear of men with guns hauling my ass away and tossing me in a cell for embarrassing the elite )

    i'd rather go to a biker rally or a flea market... or a somewhere that I can find the real people.

    I'd go but I'd never be invited again afterwards.
