Grey Matter


The Kucinich Code

Imagine how great it was for my edition of Grey Matters last week to come out earlier on the same day that Dennis Kucinich admitted to having seen the UFO at Shirley MacLaine's crib.

First off, I was very happy that my faith in Kucinich wasn't misplaced. He is the man I hoped he was. Call me a hippy if you wish, but I like individuals, people who are willing to be different and say what feel. I even go so far as to admire this quality in people I don't agree with. To me, that quality is what makes America great.

On with the UFO stuff. Here is what went down:

"Now,'' Kucininch was asked, "did you see a UFO?'''

"I did,'' Kucinich said.

"And the rest of the account -- I didn't -- I -- it was unidentified flying object, okay. It's like -- it's unidentified. I saw something.

"Now, to answer your question,'' Kucinich said, "'I am moving my -- and I'm also going to move my campaign office to Roswell, New Mexico and another one, in Exeter, New Hampshire, okay... And also, you have to keep in mind that more -- that Jimmy Carter saw a UFO, and also that more people in this country have seen UFOs than, I think, approve of George Bush's presidency.''

Questioner Tim Russert replied: "14 percent of Americans say they have seen UFOs.''

It was not nearly as grand as Shirley MacLaine had reported, but I can't blame him for that. Even if the Shirley MacLaine book is accurate as to what happened, I am sure he had dozens of advisers begging him not to admit it, for good reason. There will be enough scoffing and jokes, that it would detract from the rest of his campaign and more importantly, since he won't be nominated, from his over all message.

Already I have seen at least one article questioning Kucinich's mental health. Even though he claimed nothing more than seeing something in the sky, not claiming it was of alien origin.

On a bit of a side note, the reason I love the primaries is that I can normally vote for someone I actually like, instead of the general election where I am normally stuck voting for who I hate the least. I will not do that again, I will not vote if I don't like either candidate, even if I hate one of them more.

Back to the Kucinich debate statement. Less than I had hoped for? Maybe, but not really less that I expected, actually even more than I had expected.

I believe, as I said on TDF blog that night, that Kucinich sent those of us, who believe the UFO mumbo jumbo a message. That message was conveyed by the fact that he mentioned Exeter, NH. While everyone on earth pretty much knows about Roswell, it is mostly only UFO buffs and probably a few people in NH that know about Exeter.

It was near Exeter that the Betty and Barney Hill abductions took place in 1961, but also in 1965 there was a series of strange sightings, one witnessed by a Policeman. I do not believe that most people, other than those of us that are UFO obsessed know that Exeter plays such a role in the history of Ufology.

Certain people will probably say that he mentioned Exeter in hopes of doing better in the NH primaries. We know that isn't true, as would his advisers. Mentioning Exeter in reference to UFOs is unlikely to attracted more than a few hardcore ufology people.

I believe he did it for a different reason.

Yes, I know I am a bit odd, but I actually believe it was a message to those of us that are somewhat knowledgeable about UFOs. The message is, I haven't forgot you and I believe you, even though I can't really say a lot about the subject right now. The message is also -- that in the unlikely event that I am elected, I will try my best to bring the subject of UFOs into the light of day, by finding out and releasing information.

So will the Kucinich confession actually do any good for the UFO community? Probably not, or at least not in a mainstream way of Ufology being taken more seriously. It was big news, but not really in a serious way, more as a funny side note to the debate. Still every time a known politician or celeb of some sort comes forward and admits such things there is some poor guy or gal who saw something really strange that feels a lot better about it. Maybe that person after 10 or 20 years finally feels they can talk about their strange event because if Dennis Kucinich could do it in front of millions of people, maybe they shouldn't be so afraid or feel so alone. So in that way I think it is truly helpful.

Now for something completely different -- As I have said from the beginning the Cuero Chupacabra is just a coyote. The DNA results came back last week and proved me right. Let me go out on another limb and say that the juvenile Bigfoot, which a hunter's camera caught in PA and that Linda Moulton Howe was on c2c talking about, is a bear cub with mange. Most Cryptozoologists agree with that opinion, including Loren Coleman. Think about it, there are actually bear cubs in the photos. Really, momma bear is just going to let her kids hang out with some strange little creature that could be dinner? I doubt it.

Personally I think if we ever have the body of a dead chupa, or photos of a baby Bigfoot, we will instantly know it. There won't be any doubt.
