I grew up during a time when, if you thought you had an alien encounter, you were just thought to be two bricks short of a load. The butter had melted off your cob. Your lights were on, but nobody was home. Well…you get the point. Not much was ever said about alien encounters in the sixties. But then a weird thing occurred. During one of our classes, the teacher asked if anyone ever thought they had observed anything associated with the ‘unexplained.’ In other words, an alien encounter. Over half the class, had said they had, (including me!) and this lead to some really, really interesting stories. But, unfortunately, that is not the subject of this blog.
The original purpose of writing this blog, which began in 2012, was to apply common sense ideas and solutions to current problems. So today, these common sense ideas are going to be applied to the fact that we can cease looking for life from other planets, get rid of your telescopes, defund any planetariums, because; they are already here!
We are all painfully aware of the destruction, shootings, violent crime, civil disobedience that has recently occurred as a result of the death of George Floyd. All of the 50 major cities in the U.S. have seen higher incidences of theft, homicide, car jackings, rape….you name the crime category, and it has increased significantly in all of these cities. To say that solutions are being debated at all levels of government from local to federal would be an understatement. But, leave it up to our wisely chosen elected federal officials to come up with the best solutions. Enter: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), U.S. representative from the great state of New York. The very verbal AOC said this in May of this year, “To reduce violent crime, America needs to stop building more jails.” Say what? Now what person from planet Earth, would think this was a viable solution? Less jails=less crimes? If I didn’t know she was serious, I would think this was a Saturday Night Live skit, and I would be laughing my donkey off! (Remember: I have young, impressionable grandkids, so I can’t say laughing my ass off!)
But I would like to point out one more statement by the ever popular representative who has never met a television camera she didn’t love. During a House Commission on illegal aliens in March of 2019, Representative Ocasio-Cortez said that, “illegal aliens are my constituents.” Now that presents two points of view. When she mentioned ‘illegal aliens,’ was she talking about people from Central America, or, people from Alpha Centauri? You be the judge. I could max out the memory on my computer by quoting other AOC comments, but one can only pick so much low-hanging fruit before your basket is full. Suffice it to say that her other comments are, ‘ out of this world,’ too. (Cue the Twilight Zone theme song.)
It is obvious to me that aliens are not only here singularly, but have managed to reproduce and congregate.
Do you remember a few years ago, when all statues that were associated with the Civil War had to be removed? Why? Well it was stated that these men who fought for the South, were found to be offensive by large segments of our population. I am not sure what percentage of the population found them offensive, but the statues had to go. Enter: the City of Newark, New Jersey. In light of all that has happened this past year, they erected a 700 pound bronze statue of George Floyd outside the Newark city hall. Who from this planet would honor a convict and thug? And….quite honestly, I find a statue of George Floyd to be offensive, so I want it down and it can be stored with the Civil war statues! (Why not a statue of a soldier, fireman, or policeman? Why not Buddy Valastro from Carlo’s Bakery for all the charity work he has done in the Newark area? Just sayin”.) George Floyd would not be dead if he had not passed a counterfeit bill. Floyd would probably not be dead if he wasn’t full of illegal drugs. Floyd would probably not be dead if he did not resist arrest. So tell me Earthlings, why does someone with 6 years of prison time and a long rap sheet deserve public monies to be spent on a statue? His death is a tragedy, but his life sure as hell is not noteworthy of praise. The decision by the City of Newark is another decision that is ‘out of this world.)
But just like the paid infomercials on television: “But wait…there is more!”
There is only one group of aliens that can show their true colors better than AOC or the City of Newark. (Would that color be green? ) That group would be the group that is squarely located at ground zero of the George Floyd incident, and that would be the City of Minneapolis city council. As you are aware, over 500 businesses were destroyed and looted following the George Floyd incident. This damage was horrible and horrendous to such a point that the Minneapolis police abandoned one of their precinct buildings. The destruction and rioting lasted for days. The governor of Minnesota and the Mayor of Minneapolis (aliens to be sure!) did nothing before calling out the National Guard after 4 days of nothingness. So what is the City of Minneapolis city council solution for alleviating these occurrences? Well…… they want, and did, partially defunded the police! This solution is not only ‘out of this world’, but is light years away from any common sense solution. These people have obviously come from a place much further than Alpha Centauri!.
To further explain, the City of Minneapolis had 817 officers before the George Floyd incident. Now they have 638 officers. Many fine, experienced officers retired, left the profession or moved because of the lack of support for the police during the Derek Chauvin trial. Last summer, the city council took several steps toward the defunding, including approving an amendment to remove $1 million from the police department and divert it toward the health department to hire “violence interrupters” – essentially social workers with the mission of de-escalating violent situations. In December, they diverted another $8 million from the police budget to other city services.
These fiscal moves, and the lack of city support for the police after the George Floyd incident has now….shall we say, ‘ allowed the chickens to roost.’ Minneapolis has seen an uptick in crimes that include daylight car jackings, robberies, assaults, shooting and street racing. Early 2021 crime statistics show a 250% increase in gunshot victims compared to the year-ago statistics. Rape is up 22% and robbery is up 59% compared to the previous year. Not too surprising, the 911 response times have increased, but rest assured, those “violence interrupters” will be faster than a speeding spaceship.
How could responsible Earthlings come up with these ‘out of this world ideas?’ The City of Minneapolis city council has got to be aliens from another planet, because slashing police department funds is not the solution for reducing crimes. And…reducing the number of jails will not reduce crime, either. The city council combative approach to the police, is only going to get you a lower class of policeman. Who, in their right mind, would want to be a policeman in Minneapolis? Who would want to be a “violence interrupter” in a domestic dispute, when that is the police call that the police hate and fear the most. I don’t know if the ‘violence interrupters’ have become a reality, but if they have, they will last until the first is shot or beaten…something that could easily occur in many domestic situations.
So dear readers, I have presented my case that we have been visited and infiltrated by aliens from other planets. Additionally, they must possess a form of ‘Vulcan mind meld’ that forces stupid voters into voting them into power! If that were not the case, why would these stupid, ‘out of this world’ decisions be made by the likes of AOC, the City of Newark, and the City Council of Minneapolis? But more importantly, how long are we going to tolerate their presence before we send them back to their home planets?
