Isn't Such A
NutJob After All!
The mainstream media has been having a blast kicking U.S. presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich all over the turf for a comment he made about seeing a unidentified flying object (UFO) on at least one occasion. He seems to always be the media punching bag with the MILF wife, a tofu-eating whack job who sees little green men.
Well, a recent Reuters report that was widely distributed around the world seems to suggest that the media might want to start listening to Kucinich, because he is not so far out there after all:
An international panel of two dozen former pilots and government officials from seven countries called on the U.S. government last week to reopen its generation-old UFO investigation as a matter of safety and security given continuing reports about flying discs, glowing spheres and other strange sightings. The panelists, including former senior military officers, said they had each seen a UFO or conducted an official investigation into UFO phenomena.Reuters tells us that Kucinich might have just been channeling a couple of former U.S. presidents too:
The subject of UFOs grabbed the spotlight in the U.S. presidential race last month when Kucinich, a member of Congress from Ohio, said during a televised debate with other Democratic candidates that he had seen one. Former presidents Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter are both reported to have claimed UFO sightings.The panel, organized by a group dedicated to winning credibility for the study of UFOs, urged Washington to resume UFO investigations through the U.S. Air Force or NASA. And their logic does make some sense:
"Especially after the attacks of 9/11, it is no longer satisfactory to ignore radar returns ... which cannot be associated with performances of existing aircraft and helicopters," they said in a statement released at a news conference. While most turn out to be misidentified aircraft, satellites or meteors. A panelist who once worked for Britain's Ministry of Defense said 5 percent of incidents cannot be explained.The story says that from 1947 to 1969, the U.S. Air Force investigated 12,618 UFO reports in what was known as Project Blue Book. Investigators concluded that the incidents posed no threat and there was no evidence of space aliens in operation. But there are others, reports Reuters, that is not buying the theory that this planet is the only one in this universe or any other that is inhabited with little men of any color:
"It's a question of who you going to believe: your lying eyes or the government?" remarked John Callahan, a former Federal Aviation Administration investigator, who said the CIA in 1987 tried to hush up the sighting of a huge lighted ball four times the size of a jumbo jet in Alaska. Callahan joins former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington, who said he was among hundreds who saw a delta-shaped craft with enormous lights silently traverse the sky near Phoenix in 1997.In my travels – which included many long nights in my former life behind the wheel pounding down the interstate in an 18-wheeler – I have seen too many unexplainable lights in the sky to not be a believer. Of course there are space craft from other planets, there just HAS to be. Think about it: Earth is but one speck of a rock in our universe, which is one speck of a universe that joins an infinite number of other specks in what we commonly call "space".
I have often pondered that if "space" is not infinite, then what lies on the other side at the point where our 'space" ends? But if it IS infinite, the universe as we know it would be duplicated an infinite number of times, creating lots of tiny specks of rock out there for some sort of beings like us to throw together a craft capable of coming here and toying with our atmosphere. To say Earth is the only planet to possibly have intelligent life is simply ridiculous.
Now if we could just get all those little green men registered as Democrats, Kucinich might stand a chance against the Top Tier candidates that the mainstream media is shoving down our throats as they try to decide the next presidential election for us.
