Happy Black Ops Friday!

top secretGood morning, Modern Philosophers!

Hope you are all recovering from your Thanksgiving food comas, and are now ready to get on with your lives.

I have a feeling that some of you have been up for hours already to take advantage of today’s holiday.

As you know, today is Black Ops Friday, the day when we recognize the accomplishments of those who work in a clandestine manner to keep our country safe.

Spies, field agents, handlers, CIA employees…they do so much for us, but they can never receive the acknowledgment they deserve.  There will never be a ticker tape parade held in their honor.  He can never walk up to a beautiful woman at a bar and earn her affection simply by impressing her with stories from “the office”.  She can never tell her kids that when she’s not shuttling them to soccer practice, she’s out saving the world.

Black Ops agents are more important than ever given what’s going on in our world.  They really do deserve this holiday.

So, go up to a complete stranger today, give that person a hug and thank him for his service to your country.  Tell her how much you appreciate that she has risked her life to make sure that America remains the land of the free and the home of the brave.

ciaSure, you might get some dirty looks in return, or have the police called on you, but you never know who could be a Black Ops agent.  That stranger you thank very well could have made sure the uranium didn’t fall into the wrong hands, or took out the terrorist cell that wanted to poison your drinking water.

There are also some great sales going on today, and 20% of all money spent at participating stores will go into a special retirement fund for Black Op Agents.

Happy Black Ops Friday!  Remember those who we don’t know to remember!

Keep in mind that if you don’t celebrate, they will know because they monitor everything…

    Reblogged this on The Return of the Modern Philosopher and commented:

    The Top Secret Black Friday post I wrote last year. I am granting you temporary clearance to read this now, but it will self destruct in 5, 4, 3…

  6. II don’t remember reading this last year. I was probably out saving the world…..

  7. A big bear hug to those in Black Ops. Also, I would like to give a symbolic hug to those in WPP (witness protection). It took tremendous courage to stand up to some very nasty criminal masterminds. Public hugging would be contraindicated for obvious reasons. I’m a nobody–you didn’t hear it from me.

  8. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:

  9. I”m confused….but then, what else is new? Am I allowed to only hug the pretty ones?

  10. I’m fairly certain that I would be picked up by the CIA if I actually did randomly hug a Black Ops agent.

    Maybe this should become a new holiday. Random Hug Day. If you hug a Black Ops agent in the process, all the better! 🙂

    I salute your Mercantile Patriotism, Sir !!!

    As my lovely wife, (name excised) once observed, “If they really WERE Black Ops, they wouldn’t TELL you they were Black Ops. That’s how you know they WEREN’T Black Ops.”

    Happy Holiday, honey, wherever you are!…

    Or we could just post an e-mail to a high school friend and mention how much we appreciate the Black Ops people. I’m sure they are reading the e-mails anyway.
