But my proposed, I actually have a serious proposal which is that we have to get a bunch of scientists to tell us that we're facing a threatened alien invasion, and in order to be prepared for that alien invasion we have to do things like build high-speed rail. And the, once we've recovered, we can say, “Look, there were no aliens.”
Sounds like a loony idea to me, but it might explain a lot.

Jim Oberg, I can't figure you out. Why did you post this? To get in ahead of the 'sightings' so you can refer back to this thread?
Why would a 'fake' invasion even interest you?
