Those looking for a serious answer from the White House “We The People” petitions have now been joined by another disgruntled group of answered petitioners – those looking for verification of government knowledge of extra-terrestrials.
Of course, the government denied any knowledge, and I’m not a real follower of this topic, so can’t address whether or not the government’s response was outrageously and clearly wrong like it is on marijuana.
And maybe it’s my closeness to the subject, but doesn’t it seem like the government actually gave a more serious and respectful answer to the question of ET than that of MJ?
Does the government find UFO’s less worthy of derision than pot?
Sure seems that way.
My new favorite petition at the White House:
Since these petitions are ignored apart from an occasional patronizing and inane political statement amounting to nothing more than a condescending pat on the head, we the signers would enjoy having the illusion of success. Since no other outcome to this process seems possible, we demand that the White House immediately assign a junior staffer to compose a tame and vapid response to this petition, and never attempt to take any meaningful action on this or any other issue. We would also like a cookie.
