Paul Hellyer, embarassment to Canada

Paul Hellyer, a former Minister of Defence (from 1963 to 1967), has obviously taken leave of his senses.

In a speech at the University of Toronto (who probably haven't had any senses for a long time either) in September, Mr Hellyer said that "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."

Weighing on his mind are the possibilities of "intergalactic war" which he feels that he needs to speak out about. But he's not only gone around the bend over ET, he also combines it with a dose of anti-Americanism and, since he's a Liberal, Bush Derangement Syndrome.

"The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning." And "the Bush administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them, if they so decide."

A spokesperson for an NGO which goes along with this lunacy says that “our Canadian government needs to openly address these important issues of the possible deployment of weapons in outer war plans against ethical ET societies.”

Er, hell no! This is not what I'm paying ridiculous amounts of taxes for! If foil-hatted conspiracy retards (including former government ministers) want to rant about weapons in space and extra terrestrials, they can damn well do it on their own dollars.

Besides, how do they know that these "ET societies" are all going to be "ethical" (which in their minds no doubt means good little extra terrestrisocialists)? What if they're a bunch of warmongering capitalists, hey Mr Hellyer? What if they even voted for Bush? Gasp!
