Interested in the truth

Hi, found this forum while researching something political. I'm a writer/artist/activist from California. The name Alipes was an epithet of the god Hermes. It was his nickname when seen in flight delivering messages from the gods. No, I don't see myself as messenger, it was just an interesting name I found right around the time I was getting ready to publish a book. I liked it and named my publishing company Alipes Press. I was going to use my real name for this forum, but it looked like monikers were the norm, thus Alipes (pronounced A-LEAP-ease).

I began as a poet, at the age of ten, and have always been fierce to find and know and tell the truth.

I've found a lot of forums to be littered with operatives of one sort or another, hope there are lots of independent Americans here too.
Thanks from webguy4

Welcome to the forum. I've written a number of poems myself, but not for a few years now.

What do you consider to be the characteristics of an "operative"? I take it that the meaning is some sort of flip side to "independent." Would any member of a political party be an "operative"?

Hi Bookworm

My definition of operative would be someone who gets paid to say/type things. We're all operatives for our subjective tastes, but not everyone is paid to say things meant to keep the status quo in place.

Poetry is an art form like any other, you can't always rely on inspiration to show up at the door, sometimes you have to go out, find it, and bring it home

I wrote one poem and used a pseudonym because the last stanza I borrowed from another poet but changed a few words. My poem was sent Fleet wide. Recalling from memory in 1972 the last stanza was:

But when we get to Heaven
St. Peter will surely yell,
Fall out you men of Somers
You have served your time in Hell.

Hello welcome Alipe

You say you're a writer, I'm happy.
The friend does not want to write a book with this title (fragments of the life of a Portuguese » Retalhos da vida de um português )
I tell you my past to friend writes a book with the title that I gave the profits of the sold books, we share the socks, you are the writer but the story is mine.
A big hug welcome friend do not get me wrong was a little humor.

Hi Alvis

Thanks for the hugged welcome. I don't wear socks, so maybe we can renegotiate the percentage of profits?

Sorry to say 50 to 50 profits in Portuguese if it says socks, but it has nothing to do with the feet has to do with the business.

( MEIAS 50 - 50 Half 100 - 50 for me 50 for you)
45 percent for me 55 percent for you
Will spend ink and paper to write the book, title in Portuguese -

RETALHOS DA VIDA DE UM PORTUGÊS - book livro

English flips of the life of a Portuguese.
The friend has to write the book in two languages in English and Portuguese knows that Brazil is the largest market of the Portuguese language, friend I hope that we both will make a lot of money. I give real history the friend makes the books.
I'm kidding, but you never know, my friend, I embrace everything good for you and your family.
Act money health and love and wine - haja dinheiro saúde e amor e vinho.
