Tory fuck-ups

DAVID Cameron is heading for defeat at the general election after a devastating poll showed his lead slashed to just two points.

This is unbelievable.

Gorgon Brownie is one of worst leaders ever seen and he’s heading up a government that has done everything wrong. Add in all the scandals and the financial calamities and a mongo ant should be able to beat Labour in general elections.

But Tories seem to mess this up.

Can it have something to do with how the Cameronites are pretending to be slightly better Labour that the original perhaps?

The alien story

Is there little grey sado-interested ‘people’ running around on our planet abducting folk for obscene tests? Do we have reptilian beings living beneath the surface of our world, infecting and impacting on our lives? Have we been visited by tall spooky looking glowy entities? Is there a planet-X roaming around soon to be back with a vengeance?

Popular stories about alien beings visiting us or in different ways affecting us are a big part of modern day mythology. Shows like the X-files and Stargate SG1 as well as movies like The Abyss and countless of books and conspiracists have created a situation whereas even normal people have started to believe.

Is it unthinkable that aliens have or are visiting us? No, not really, but what would they do here? Check out our progress? Dissect us and do experiments? Doesn’t seem likely now does it?

Alien abductions are as plausible as socialism is a good idea.

If Alien has the technology to travel the vast distances of space, shouldn’t they know all there’s to know about us already? Certainly know more than we do in any case.

Reading about the Dagon tribe or early Sumerian writings you cannot help wondering a little. But really?

The only thing I can think of that makes any sense, if one is to buy into this crap, is that Aliens are watching us and placing bets. Which country will attack who, what will that plague do to humans, how mankind will react to earthquakes. Things of that nature would come with odds that the beings can play on. That I could sort of understand. Like a big board with pieces getting moved around. And maybe, just maybe, some of these Aliens like to cheat, fiddle with the odds in their favor and so they sometimes intervene on our planet to get us to do stuff, just to win a bet.

Anyway, looking around online I get very fed-up with all the alien conspiracies that often come up in connection to financial problems, wars and secret societies. Sadly such notions are often mentioned by individuals that I share much politics with.

One more anal-probing, gyro-pyro, levitating-ecoplasm, alien-antimatter story and I might pick up a gun and go postal.

Don’t get me wrong, I would love the existence of Aliens. I would even welcome an invasion; they cannot possibly fuck up things to the same extent as we have. I’m also a science and sci-fi fan and if I got one dying wish granted it would most likely be to travel the stars. However, I don’t let either my imagination or any futile hopes of Alien rescues cloud my judgment or rational thinking.

If there’s an invasion of artificially intelligent, dung-eating robotic probes or we get attacked by little grey ass-investigators I will start to believe, but other than that I don’t see how anyone can take anything conspiracists says for the truth. It is too far out there.
