      This promises to be like the climate change bandwagon, or the covid bandwagon. Congress will hold many hearings about this “grave national security threat.” Experts will appear on TV. Books will be sold. Programs will be funded. Careers will be made. Everyone with a degree will become a “renowned scientist.” The interesting thing about UFOs is that we already know what to do about them. Nothing. Even if we somehow manage to figure out who or what they are and where they’re from, we can’t stop them. But it opens up a whole new arena for elected representatives who are too stupid or too bored to occupy themselves with working for the people. After all, how can we think about universal Healthcare when the universe may be swarming with little green men in spaceships?

      "Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM

      In this case, it’s to make people think congress is doing something.  In fact, they are doing nothing that will actually benefit the country or address any real problems.  What is happening while we are distracted by UFO stuff?  Congress may end up allocating money to contractors to do something about UFOs, and some will come back as campaign contributions.  Win-win for them, but us regular people lose.

      Burn Down Congress!

        I worked 5 years for TSA and some of it is security theater and some is real. What they accomplish is making it difficult for terrorists to get weapons and explosives onto passenger planes, so they look for other targets. On the plus side, we regularly took away weapons from people who should not have had them. On the negative side, it’s more security than the public wants.

          I’ve seen a few articles over the years about people bringing knives or other things onto planes just to show how bad the actual security is, as well as about the people operating the scanners.  Yeah, I certainly lack a lot of info.

          However, I stand my the point that the UFO hearing is a distraction.
