we can't get along with each other....what makes you think we will fare any better with someone from another Galaxy? Especially if they look like something out of Men In Black....

I predict that thousands of alien ships will arrive soon, they will land and demand that we surrender. But they will be as small as hamsters with cute little spaceships and sporting wee little fazors, our cats will save us.

The alien invasion is called, "The Wear and Tear of our Infrastructure and Our Cohesiveness as a People Determined to Fix it."

Hmmm, wonder what they know that they aren't saying? There has been talk about an alien invasion happening during the olympics in London as well. I guess wait and see is the order of the day for this.

We could put a lot of people to work building our United States Southern border, to prevent aliens from taking over our Nation.

I beleive it was Krushev that said the Soviets would not have to fire a shot to conquer The US they would simply buy it. Something the Chinese took seriously.

In the end no one is going to own anyone. There will be an economic collapse like you can't ever imagine... too many people... too few ways of making money.... a losing postion..

People, The United states goverment along with most of the other world goverments have already worked out a plan with the Benevolent Extra-terestrial species whom have been looking after humanities best interest from the moment we succeeded in spliting the atom. Its 2012 and it is my contention that after the planetary "SHIFT" all goverments of the world will implement total Debt forgiveness (I understand its already in the works) Then there is to be a redistribution of global wealth along with the implementation of certain alien technologies ( Free-Energy) that up until now was being kept secret by Dark govt strongholds whom were controlled by the Mega rich and the Super petro-Conglomerates. This New World Order will give rise to an unpresidented age of Technology, Prosperity, and Spirituality.

And we'll call it, 'The Age of Aquarius'. Don't forget I'm the one who thought of the name.

I have hated that song since the day it came out! Topped only by my hate of "In the Year 2525"!

I like Stanton Friedman's idea the best. Cut the military budget and use the savings to help Americans get back on their financial feet. Now THAT'S an idea that would actually do some good.
11:18 AM on 06/22/2012
Ah yes, the austerity model. Remember, when you cut the defense budget a lot of people will become newly unemployed and need benefits. Probably a new round of foreclosures could follow. Cutting DOD is easy to say, but hard to do without serious unitended consequences.

what would really fix the economy would be a united effort, American's systematically boycotting all the fat companines, then taking those companies over and restructuring them so they benefit the Americans' themselves.

blame it on Hollywood there are plenty willing but instead of spending any of the billions they reap from American movie goers they are hoarding the cash and wait for the UK and everybody else to make the first move. In other word like Corporate America they take but don't give back!

Well this is obviously an intentionally absurd, extrapolated metaphor for the economic boost provided by wars, but I have to agree with Mr. Shostak, who has the realistic view (ironically - since he works with SETI). I have to laugh every time I see something about crop circles or cattle mutilation - like an intelligence that could travel here would waste their time designing pretty circles in cornfields.
There is an hilarious episode of The Simpsons where Homer gets kidnapped by aliens. Having seen so much of this nonsense, he says, "Well, I guess you'll want to probe me. Might as well get it over with" and pulls down his pants. The alien replies (repulsed), "Pull your pants up, Earthling . . . we've reached the limits of what rectal probing can teach us."
