UFO, You Say?

What's up with all this UFO propaganda? Last night, Larry King had a whole show about a UFO sighting in Stephenville, Texas. I'm just not buyin' it. CNN is airing the show again Sunday night, at 8:00 central time.

Larry's people seemed believable, but I'll be darned if I can imagine a giant freaking airship that fills the whole sky and makes no noise and takes off at a 45-degree angle in the blink of an eye and travels 1900 miles per hour. No. Just no. And here's the freaky thing about Larry's show...these people were from Texas, and said that the UFO was headed in the direction of Georgie Bush's ranch. No. Just no. Georgie is a lot of things, but an alien is not at the top of my list. And I don't think he's such a prime specimen that aliens would want to study him. I don't exactly consider him to be the leader of the Earth. On the contrary, if UFOs are military secrets, then perhaps the pilot wanted to do a fly-over of the Crawford ranch, just to show off for his Commander in Chief.

This one eye-witness on Larry's show said he was hunting in his woods, and got tangled up in some briars. When he got loose and looked up, there was this giant gray thingy that covered the whole sky. Then it took off. If he would have blinked, he would have missed it. I don't know how they found out, because I switched channels for a while, but apparently some high-ranking military people interviewed him and told him to keep quiet about it. He demanded that they stop flying over his airspace, and a general or some high-ranker told him, "No, it's MY air space." Since they never stopped flying over in their helicopters, the guy decided to talk.

Larry also had some radar experts with a chart showing sightings. The FAA said there were no planes in the area in question during that time. Opposers said that of course there were many aircraft in flight, and that's what people saw. The radar experts declared that there couldn't be that many aircraft flying without beacons. I kind of lost interest here. But the date was January 8. They never said where Georgie Bush was on that night, but the local reporter said she did not think he was at the ranch.

This led me on a wild internet UFO chase, and I found a site that proclaimed that not only were the Apollo Moon Landings NOT FAKE, but that the astronauts were threatened by aliens who live on the dark side of the moon, and that's why we have never been back. Of course, it didn't explain why we went back all those times (allegedly), because I believe the first moon walkers were the ones who had the alien space ship watching them from a ridge, and NASA edited it out, and that Neil Armstrong was afraid for his life when he first stepped out onto the moon. Oh, and the aliens have a mining operation going on the dark side of the moon, and use that area as a base for Earth exploration missions. Also, right after 9/11, Bush and Cheney were taken to the dark side of the moon to be safe, and that's why nobody knew exactly where they were.

Then there was some show like MonsterQuest that said there are flying humaniod UFOs who attack people and try to kill them in some Spanish-speaking country. I didn't follow it too closely, because the 'footage' of these flying people looked like parachutists, or people with jet-packs. I found this about as believable as those stories of 'flying rods', which are just big ol' bugs caught flitting by the camera.

I am not a UFO believer. But I sure am glad that Al Gore invented the internet.

I'd like a conspiracy theorist to answer this question: If the government is secretly behind (or aware of) these UFO sightings and doesn't want the public to know, wouldn't they at least be able to get the FAA to lie and say there WERE flights going through an area in question? I mean, it's the government, right? But every time you hear about sightings, the FAA is always quoted as saying there were no flights in the area at the time.

Miss Ann,
Or maybe the government wants the FAA to lie and say there AREN'T any planes in the air, so the witnesses can be made less credible. They were clearly hallucinating. Hundreds of witnesses. At the same time.
