“I’ve spent the last 40 years traveling around the world. I’ve held about 150 different jobs. I am an international photo journalist and author; I’ve written two books.

I later on went and soldiered all over the world as a civilian. Some people say I’m a mercenary; I’d rather be termed a soldier of fortune.”

“John Barrasso, for one, is a corporate puppet. He’s gotten a lot of money from corporations, and I don’t plan to get, I don’t plan to ask for nor accept corporate funding.”
