Alien Encounter

Dr. Ben Carson says the pyramids in Egypt are not tombs of the pharaohs.  They’re grain silos built by Joseph… or perhaps by visitors from another world.

In the course of his explanation, Carson said “And when you look at the way that the pyramids are made, with many chambers that are hermetically sealed, they’d have to be that way for various reasons. And various of scientists have said, ‘well, you know there were alien beings that came down and they have special knowledge and that’s how-’ you know, it doesn’t require an alien being when God is with you.” (emphasis added).

Do we really want a president who gets his daily briefing from the National Enquirer?

8 barks and woofs on “Alien Encounter

  1. I would love to see a democratic candidate propose one of his thoughts. The rightwing would be all over the loon who did.

    • This is an interesting point. If a lib did this, it’d be mocked as some kind of New Age, save the whales ridiculousness.

  2. This from Robert Reich’s facebook page: (I wish he’d reveal the name of his friend. It loses credibility with the anonymous source.)

    The other night I phoned a former Republican member of Congress with whom I’d worked in the 1990s on various pieces of legislation. I consider him a friend. I wanted his take on the Republican candidates because I felt I needed a reality check. Was I becoming excessively crotchety and partisan, or are these people really as weird as they seem? We got right into it:

    Me: “So what do really you think of these candidates?”

    Him: “You want my unvarnished opinion?’

    Me: “Please. That’s why I called.”

    Him: “They’re all nuts.”

    Me: “Seriously. What do you really think of them?”

    Him: “I just told you. They’re bonkers. Bizarre. They’re like a Star Wars bar room.”

    Me: “How did it happen? How did your party manage to come up with this collection?”

    Him: “We didn’t. They came up with themselves. There’s no party any more. It’s chaos. Anybody can just decide they want to be the Republican nominee, and make a run for it. Carson? Trump? They’re in the lead, and they’re both out of their f*cking minds.”

    Me: “That’s not reassuring.”

    Him: “It’s a disaster. I’m telling you, if either of them is elected, this country is going to hell. The rest of them aren’t much better. I mean, Carly Fiorina? Really? Rubio? Please. Ted Cruz? Oh my god. And the people we thought had it sewn up, who are halfway sane — Bush and Christie — they’re sounding almost as batty as the rest.”

    Me: “Who’s to blame for this mess?”

    Him: “Roger Ailes, David and Charles Koch, Rupert Murdoch, Rush Limbaugh. I could go on. They’ve poisoned the American mind and destroyed the Republican Party.

    Me: “Nice talking with you.”

    Him: “Sleep well.”
