Obama Better Prepared To Handle Alien Invasion, Poll Finds

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The two presidential candidates may be neck and neck in most (un)popularity polls, and according to some metaphorical sources are even the same person just with different Wall Street backers, but when it comes to the critical topic of resisting an alien invasion, Obama is far better prepared, according to two thirds of the population.

From Politico:

Americans may be split on which presidential candidate can fix the economy, but President Barack Obama trounces Mitt Romney in one out-of-this-world scenario — an alien invasion. The majority of Americans, nearly 65 percent, say Obama is better suited than Romney to handle an alien invasion, according to a new National Geographic Channel poll, USA Today reports.

 

The survey, conducted to promote “Chasing UFOs,” a TV series premiering Friday, also found that almost eight in 10 people, 79 percent, believe the government has kept information about UFOs a secret from the public. In addition, 55 percent believe agents similar to those played by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the film “Men in Black” — their mission is to hide information about extraterrestrial beings — actually exist.

 

Meanwhile, more than a third of Americans, 36 percent, believe UFOs exist.

Now there is a discoonect here: as most readers know very well, Keynesian Plan Z for America is to fold like a lawn chair when ET starts shooting, and to have the planet literally leveled and all "windows broken", with the resulting surge in GDP leading the world to a new Golden Age. Sadly for the high priest of Keynsianomics, Paul Krugman, this plan would require a president who is willing to immediately wave the white flag when faced with a UFO invasion.

If Obama indeed is capable of repelling an armada of little green men, then the world truly is doomed.

Then again, there really is no need to worry.

So lemme get this straight.  A mulatto is better prepared than a white man (or woman, I hope as it would otherwise be discriminatory) to stop an alien invasion of greens, grey or multicolored aliens but not the brown or yellow ones that don't have green cards even though the green ones won't have any cards so better not be stopped in Arizona which would require Indian red stop signs assuming that's the intergalactic color for stop, when in fact a silvery white or blue is most often associated with absolute zero when everything stops unless its within the mahogany colored halls of our multi-colored diverse congress where all things serious have stopped dead for years, often best portrayed by an opossum lying on its side,  them generally being colored of white black and brown therefore the perfect national symbol of our increasingly paralyzed multicultural society except it once again limits the celebration of multicultural colors, leaving out yellow and red as well as green and gray.

Look, here's the deal.
The whole thesis upon which the west's ever expanding government is based has to do with the necessity to coordinate ever increasing scarce input factors, land labor and capital under the aegis of governmental control... for which there is a need for an enemy or threat.

Swine flu
Any flu
Climate change
Water scarcity
Air pollution
Food security
Energy independence
Wars on drugs
War on poverty
War on turror

 

Keep on thinkin'

war against alien invasions, asteroid strikes, etc, etc, etc.
Why you think that the Un appointed some bimbo from Sri Lanka or wherethefuckever as the Planet's Ambassador and Contact Person for Alien Intervention?
True.
Remember?

Consolidation of land labor and capital me bucko, out of your pocket and into the politicians and their financial enablers.

Go figure.

Simple as pie...that you get to bake and they eat.

Wernher von Braun, the Nazi godfather of the rocket engine, was concerned about Western powers using a staged alien invasion as the ultimate external threat.  After the US brought him into the country under project paper-clip, von Braun integrated himself deeply within the Military Industrial Complex.  He understood the whole construct and use of an external threat as a tool for societal mobolizing and justification for military spending.   He warned against this ultimate false flag plan should it ever be taken off the shelf and implemented. 

The documentation for this is found within the very credible "Disclosure Project," run by Dr. Steven Greer.  Sounds crazy, I know...  But this is indeed documented history and our "leaders" think of all sorts of things to keep the sheeple inline.  So, even if you don't believe in little green men, it shouldn't be much of a stretch for all here to understand contingency planning like this actually isn't that unconventional.

I had not realised than any American believed there was intelligent life beyond the borders of the US. But, as an aside, which part of "Illegal alien" is it that Obama doesn't understand? If he just wants to open the borders to let anyone enter, can be please advise the INS to stop fucking genuine visitors around over Visas. It seems the easiest way to enter the US is either to walk from Mexico or drive from Canada. Eh?

A study was recently concluded which proved that most people who believe in UFOs are also prone to believing in religious fairy tales.

Given that most UFO sightings are in Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania and these three states are densely populated with conservative redneck hillbillies who cling to guns and bibles, I think the correlation seems accurate. 

Related to that, did you know the number of churches in Texas and Florida far outweighs the number of dentists?  Like 10:1. Whereas in NY, there are far more dentists than churches.

Sorry Sir, but your numbers are just full of shit.

The participation rate in Oklahoma was 5%.  The participation rate in NY was 85%.  

This means that only 5% of students in Oklahoma even THOUGHT about going to college.  Do you think this might skew the numbers?

Well, today a Quinnipiac phone poll showed that 53% of Martians would vote for Obama, while only 44% would vote for Romney. Interestingly, Venusians whose brain hemispheres are capable of independent thought, responded 64% positive for Obama and 58% positive for Romney. Calls to the Jovian sattellites were not answered due to the 14 Earth-year-long Jupiter Independence celebration.

But I digress. Why there are people still believing in UFOs? If faster-than-light-speed travel was possible, aliens would be already here saving our economy with their tourism money.

Of course, it is possible that the Mogambo Guru is for real, and they are not coming here because of our fiat money.

I'm not so close-minded as not to believe in aliens(and if they were anything like earthlings they'd def be hostile) but there's a 99.999999999999999999999999%..... chance that the biggest threat to humanity are the fuckheads running the country and their idiot friends like the ones that made this survey.

Any of you sitting here arguing about an alien invasion need to pull your heads out of your fucking asses this is a complete slap in the face of how stupid the people around you are.

Well, according to former SS Major Werner von Braun shortly before he died from cancer, the final card which TPTB will play for a world fascist lock down will be a false flag alien invasion.  Krugman is just sending up a trial balloon.

What is this "National Geographic Channel" that you write about?  Where is it found?  Who watches such?  We also have the concept of "shit" and "brains".  However, we never mingle the two, since our Creator separated the two by at least 1/2 of our body length and protect the "brains" from direct contact with the unfortunate environment.

not planets but celestial levels, sort of like the degrees of Heaven and Hell in Buddhism or Hinduism. I believe this concept existed in the original versions of the bible but was purged, with the notable exception of Satan being cast out of heaven to other realms. If I remember my comparative religion class well.

No, not of the 'Bible', but of early Christian texts. That's the influence of Neoplatonism. Many other instances of its influence were not purged from what became Catholicism.

Who’s ever heard of this polling group, anyway? And it’s on Politico!  ZH put this on as a joke; instead of Friday humor, we have Wednesday humor.

The problem is, when the alien arrives and says, Take me to your leader, the response will be:"We have no leader."

If the aliens are more advanced than human beings, they will realize that each individual is sovereign.

The sovereignty issue reminds me of the Opus cartoon when as an immigrant he was headed for Bloom County to be questioned in a giant auditorium filled with clerks at their desks.  Across an entire wall of the room ran a narrow little sign that read: “Welcome immigrants.” Underneath ran a huge sign in bold 10-foot letters in red that gave the real welcome: NO SMOKING!
