How soon they forget - do they not remember Independence Day, when the White House was completely destroyed ... and obviously having to rebuild it, in order to make such false statements.

Not according to the documentary I saw on TV earlier this year. I think it was called "The Event".

Re: 'No evidence' for extraterrestrials, says White House

Realistically, even if we did get contact from a planet one light year away, we wouldn't be able to visit it. (without gravity our bodies deteriorate)

Space exploration yes, but please, only after we have solved the major problems on earth.

Dont quite know about that, if you have ever seen and contemplated "the pale blue dot and read Carl Sagen s essay you may see things in a life changing way.
All religious nonsense aside under our feet there is something that sustains us and gives us life, some thing tangible and real.
Google yourself the picture of the pale blue dot and spend a half hour looking at it, I promise you will never, ever see your life or you role in the scheme of things in the same way again.
Humans went into space and found planet earth.


From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
—Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space


Humbling, the pale blue dot changed my life forever, I can not see the picture and read Carls lines without tears.

Didn't the White House also say unemployment would be down and the US economy back on track by now?
