No Little Green Men?

The Obama administration has dutifully responded to citizens’ petitions, msnbc.com reported Nov. 7, asking if the government is covering up contacts with extraterrestrial beings. Perhaps little green men, some may think, knowing of Obama’s craze for green.
“The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial has contacted or engaged any member of the human race,” assured a serious Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. “In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public eye.”
How could there be even a smidgen of doubt in the public’s mind that the White House would withhold any important findings? The public knows full well that Obama promised full transparency. And every citizen of either political party knows that when Barack Obama makes a promise, it is locked in stone.
But with the administration’s devotion to a “green” American planet, it just seems to many folks so natural to expect some little green men from Mars to participate in this monumental green effort.
The citizen petition asking the White House to disclose all knowledge of and communication with extraterrestrial beings was signed by 5,387 curious people. Furthermore, 12,078 concerned citizens signed the request for a formal acknowledgement from the government whether extraterrestrials have been engaging the human race.
“Hundreds of military and government agency witnesses” have testified convincingly of this extraterrestrial presence, the second petition said with a tone of authority. “Opinion polls now indicate that 50 percent of American people believe there is an extraterrestrial presence and more than 80 percent believe the government is not telling the truth about this phenomenon. The people have a right to know. The people can handle the truth,” the petition said.
The notion that the American people have a right to know all that the White House may know probably seems far-out craziness to the Obama people. Just who do these citizens think they are, anyway?
The Obama administration invented the petition idea, dramatically calling it “We the People.” That has a nice democratic ring to it. The White House initially announced that White House staffers would jump on any issue that received at least 5,000 online signatures within a 30-day period. But apparently that became a bit bothersome. So to cut down on the petitions, the White House raised the number to a required 25,000 signatures.
We all know that aliens are invading the country. But most of them are illegal aliens from Mexico. As for those from outer space, Science Adviser Larson stressed that there is no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. Some Republicans still believe that Joe Biden’s origin is a mystery and possibly of extraterrestrial nature, which remains to be clarified once and for all.
Larson acknowledged that many are convinced that people from outer space exist. Scientists have concluded that the odds of life elsewhere in the universe are fairly high, he admitted. But he said the chance that any of them are making contact with humans is extremely small, given the distances involved. “However,” he added, “that doesn’t mean the subject of life outside our planet isn’t being discussed or explored.”
In fact, Larson mentioned that a scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence is keeping an “ear” out, though nothing has been found so far. He also said the Kepler spacecraft (Kepler is a NASA spacecraft) searching for Earth-like planets will launch this month “to assess what Martian environment was like in the past to see if it could harbor life.”
Another, more down-to-earth project of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy early this month was a free health text messaging service for under served pregnant women and moms. It is called Text4baby. The White House said it is “reaching its target audience of and achieving a number of its health education goals.” The program is the first free mobile health service in the United States “and is an important example of leveraging widely used technology—in this case cell phones—in new ways to improve the lives of Americans.
“Pregnant and new moms who sign up…receive three text messages per week containing health tips and resources.”
Sounds like a sidebar to ObamaCare. You just never know what the White House Office of Science and Technology will get into next.
