    Area 51

    Apparently there's a plan* to raid Area 51 in September and figure out, once and for all, what's really being hidden there.

    However, I find the following argument genuinely compelling:

    1. If there were aliens in Area 51, Donald Trump would have tweeted about it.
    2. Donald Trump has not tweeted about aliens in Area 51.
    3. Therefore, there are no aliens in Area 51.



    *clearly, a big joke...right? right?
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

    I had a CPA friend who supposedly worked at Area 51 "back in the day". He claimed he worked for "the company", yet preceded his stories with "I may or may not be telling the truth".

    It is a joke. The people making the joke understand how impossible it would be to try to get in.

    Kinda reminds me, however, of a day in my Junior High days when we had a substitute teacher, and some of the kids wanted to stage a walk-out.

    Before you know it, there were chants of "you can't stop us ALL - you can't stop us ALL -you can't stop us ALL -" and the class was empty, except for me and the substitute teacher*.




    *he was also my Pastor, and a good friend of my parents.

    It may turn into something ugly, though....

    A pinned post on the page attempts to cover its bases, reading "Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet." But as the event has gained traction -- inspiring dozens of memes and jokes -- the profile of the situation has risen, so much so that the US Air Force has been made aware of the potential impending raid.

    And they're not as lighthearted about the situation as folks on the internet are.

    Lazar was somewhat of a hero to my CPA friend.

    I don't know whether to believe him or not? I mean my son, step son and I saw craft on Christmas even 1990 that didn't act like any aircraft I had ever seen. But who knows.

    Having been to Roswell I can tell you people on those bases are serious about keeping folks out.
