You Can't Beat A System You Can't Understand
Why the space guys don't officially land
By Sam Bari

Everybody seems to think that columnists are allowed to write
whatever we want even if our material does not contain so much
as a grain of truth. In other words, people feel that we just
sit at our computers and lie for a living. A 9-year-old girl
once said to me at a family gathering, "You have no credibility;
you're a columnist." I, of course, defended myself and told her
I was a Libertarian, but that didn't appear to sway her opinion.

I'll have you know that many great fiction writers began as
columnists, honing their craft in daily and weekly creations
until they were able to string several hundred columns together
so that publishers could bind them into one book and call it a
novel. You see, "novelists," for some reason that is beyond the
comprehension of most columnists, are credible. Writers of
fiction are respected in the literary trade. I suppose it's
because they are capable of telling longer lies than writers of
columns. I don't really know, but it sounds like as good an
excuse as any.

Today, I am going to turn the tide by making a profound
statement that will enlighten mankind and give columnists around
the globe the respect they so justly deserve. Last week, while
sitting in my living room reading old Dave Barry and Russell
Baker columns, looking for something to steal, it dawned on me
why the space guys have never landed.

The truth is, they just haven't announced their arrival. Believe
me, they are already here, and I have proof.

A few weeks ago, on March 20, to be exact, Leslie Kean, a highly
respected investigative reporter and journalist wrote an article
about UFOs. According to Kean, ten years after an Arizona UFO
incident known as the "Phoenix Lights," former Arizona
Republican Governor Fife Symington III, said that he himself was
a witness to the strange unidentified flying objects, even
though he originally denied seeing them along despite the fact
that thousands of others did. Apparently his excuse was, "that
the state of Arizona was on the brink of hysteria," about the
UFO sighting and he didn't want the masses to panic.

Several accounts of the incident in different newspapers claimed
that thousands of people saw multiple triangular and V-shaped
craft gliding slowly and silently across the Arizona sky near
Phoenix for half an hour beginning at approximately 8:15 p.m.
Awestruck witnesses throughout the state estimated that the
eerie, lighted vehicles were bigger than many football fields,
up to a mile long.

Symington admitted that the craft were well defined, and that
the lights could not have been flares, but were part of giant
flying objects. Of the thousands of people who witnessed the
event, Phoenix city councilwoman Frances Barwood was the only
elected official to launch a public investigation, but she
received no information from any level of government. Barwood
spoke with over seven hundred witnesses, including police,
pilots and former military personnel, who provided very similar
descriptions. "The government never interviewed even one
witness," she said.

Symington also attempted to find an explanation. He called the
commander at Luke Air Force Base, the General in charge of the
National Guard, and the head of the Department of Public Safety
in 1997. None of these officials had answers, and they were
"perplexed," he said. The consensus from the government on every
level was that they were not aware of any aircraft in the area
at the time other than normal traffic, and that they had no
comment on the matter.

To this day, government officials continue to keep the lid on
the Phoenix Lights and other welldocumented sightings of
mysterious giant triangles and other unexplainable craft.

The reason that the space guys didn't land and make themselves
known, and why the government had no comment on the matter or
any other UFO matter is because the government is run by the
space guys. They've taken over. The government is being run by
aliens. They just haven't let us know about it. They use their
space-age technology to manipulate us, and I have proof.

If we weren't being manipulated, why else would we do so many
goofy things? For instance, we're upset because the cost of
gasoline has climbed to $2.79 a gallon, yet we pay a dollar for
12-ounces of brand name bottled water that is manufactured under
the same rules as water that comes out of the tap, that costs
pennies per gallon. Let's just say that we can buy bottled water
in a fancy plastic bottle for a dollar a quart. That's still $4
a gallon, and we pay for it every day without complaint. That's
beyond goofy, it's idiotic.

That's just one thing. There are many others. The space guys
have made sure of it. If there weren't, I couldn't write a
weekly column about living in this system that we can't
understand. And that's no lie.
