The ordinance reminds me of the story puppet show where people come to the alien to ask questions and not necessarily welcome them but to see why they're there and make sure they're not there to harm us. I think they should have passed the ordinance because it would be useful if aliens do land in Colorado, since its in the middle of the country and one of the biggest delta hubs in the USA.
The ordinance reminded me of the movie Men in Black when they where talking about"a little unfunded agency with the sole purpose of contacting extraterrestrials". From the stories i would say Puppet show and how they met with an average everyday person that just happened to know somebody in the military.
Unfortunatley, I see no resemblence in the Ordinance with our short stories. Personally I found that the ordinance was a bit ridiculous. I mean, using the tax payers money to fund a program with no viable proof of alien life is ludicrus. If we happened to discover alien life, then it would be a different. Maybe then the money would go to use.
This Ordinance makes me think of the story Puppet Show, like we would need a policy to figure how we should act if extraterrestrials land in denver
I think that this would be a bad idea to organize a commision who would talk to aliens if there was ever contact with them. For the most part because it would be a waste of tax payer's money. Since there has never been a recorded alien encounter where there was an exchange of communication between an E.T. and human and is extremely unlikely of happening soon, I think it would be a complete waste.
First of all, I would like to point out that this does not use taxpayer dollars. This establishes an almost independent commission founded by, "and fund such commission from grants, gifts and donations?” In my opinion, if they really don't get any taxpayer dollars, and can back up and succeed in all of their claims, including "2. Evidence of extraterrestrial beings has been known by United States presidents since President Franklin Roosevelt, including President Ronald Reagan as disclosed in his presentation to the United Nations regarding extraterrestrial matters;" then Then, and only then, should such a commission be allowed to form. I don't think that aliens are something only crazy people believe in, and, given the chance they exist, and it doesn't cost us anything, then I see no reason why not.
this Ordinance makes me think of the story Puppet show, like we should need a policy to figure how we should act if extraterrestrials land in denver.
The ordinance would have been helpful in the movie "Planet of the apes" so then they would have a greeting group, so then the human would feel welcome, as opposed to freaking out.
Hmm random sample reminds me of the situations that you hear about when people get taken and expieremented on by aliens so so they say.
In mt opion there are better ways to throw away your money than voteing to protect Denver culture from aliens. I mean what are the chances that aliens will land on earth much less Denver? Instead tax payer money should be going twaord schools.
Co-writers: Kelley Comstock and Anna-Marie BrbiescaWe thought of "puppet show" and "random sample" if we had first contact with aliens. If we were prepared for the first contact with aliens than "random sample" would not happen and we wouldn't have had the ignorance like the Colonel in "puppet show".
This doesn't make me think of any of the short stories. This just makes me think that it would be a good idea, but nobody would want to spend extra money on taxes just for this to happen.
I think this is one of the most rediculous thing I have ever heard of. I feel like if there was a encounter with extraterrestrials that directly impacts us, we would know about it. But I dont think that we need a committee to explain every little sighting of possible encounter. This would be the biggest waste of tax payer money ever devised.
Oddly enough this vote reminds me of the short story random sample. If in the unlikely event extraterestrails come to Colorado of all places, there should be welcomeing laws in effect. In the story the chilidrens reaction to the aleins, results in the earth being destroyed. All Humans are not the same, and how would aleins know that? If I went to a different planet I would not have a clue what was going on, soa commity would be helpful. However since there is no evidence of aleins from space, this idea would be a waste of time, and money. And people wonder where Americas money goes. dBrevig
The ordinance is relatively bizarre, but at the same time it's a valid point that we should know how to react if we encounter an extraterrestrial. In the Puppet Show, the aliens were testing our reaction to them. I bet the government does not want us to have a poor reaction and then something like random sample could happen, and the aliens could destroy our planet based on one person that was just uneducated about extraterrestrial life. I don't think that a program like that needs to be funded by tax payer dollars though. I'm sure the government is doing tons of top secret research using much of our budget already.
The ordinace reminds me of the story the puppet show where they are asking the little girl questions about the aliens. But I agree with Baily smith I dont think we should waist our times with things that havent even been proven yet.
The Ordinance did not remind me of any of the short stories we have or are currently reading. In my opinion the ordinance is a little ridiculous. What are the chances that aliens are going to land in the the Denver area, or in the United States for that matter. This whole thing to me is a big waste of time and money.
i think that the ordinance is a strange way to be ready for e.t. you have to take into acount the fact that they might notg be friendly and i think if its going to happen were just as prepared for it now as we would be with a team of experts. there was a large connection to the story with the burrow. it seems that what ever we do we will never be fully prepared for something like that.
This ordinance reminded me of the story, Puppet Show, because it relates to the unfamiliarity of humans and aliens interacting with each other. I think the law should have not been passed because there is not enough proof to invest in taking time to find out if aliens come to earth or not. As far as we know, they don't exist so we shouldn't waste the money on it.
The ordinance reminded me of many stories and movies like Men in Black and the Newest Indiana Jones. I don’t believe that this should have been passed because there isn’t enough information on aliens, it’s all hype. If we every do encounter aliens I don’t believe it will be like a meeting with understanding. The rest of the world would think that Colorado is crazy.
I think its pretty crazy that people truly believe that extraterrestrials will come to harm us, and its nescessary for the government to step in. It also seems silly to do all this, despite true, hard evidence that aliens really exist beyond the pages of science fiction books. It reminded me of the short story in which the alien came to visit the states to see what humans were all about, kind of like the ordinance.
After reading the proposal and everything it encompassed, I cannot believe it was actually put to a vote. In my mind this was just to see how far a group of Star Wars super fans could push into the legal system. Or a random test to see if any of the voters are actually reading the voting ballot. One way or the other it was a bad idea, and I am very happy that it did not get enough votes to pass.
The ordinance reminds me of the story puppet show because in a way it shows the confusion of an extraterrestrial when these foundations don't exist. If this were to exist in the story then meeting the alien would of been much more organized and less problems and confusion would arise. None the less though I don't believe we need any organizations like this because I don't believe in aliens.
It reminds me a bit of random sample because its kind of about the aliens randomly showing up, but also like Puppet Show because they are just to observe and connect. I think it would be cool to pass a policy like that, but it may be a waste or lead to our doom.
After reading Denver Ordiance 300, it reminded me of "Puppet Show". When the alien landed on Earth and all the humans started asking him questions. I think that its a huge waste of money to pass something like this. If aliens come to Earth, they come to Earth. Passing an ordinance for if/when extraterrestrials come to Earth, isnt going to change how people react when/if they come.
It reminds me of Muse because the older generation is not accepting and frankly quite frustrating! If this is what our government is doing on their spare time then this is embarrassing and frustrating. We are concerned of something that is not even remotely close to a threat yet. We are spending tax payer's dollars on things like this! The older generation needs to become more intelligent and more accepting. If something happens, let it happen, do not spend more money on something as useless as this. Relax and accept the modern day lack of xenophobia
I feel like this sounds like a scam. I agree with the comenter Brian Morin on that this should be debated by both science and science fiction parties. This debate should be publicized for the voters to study. This idea does not sound reasonable to me, more like a person trying to get the money of tax payers.
The Ordinance reminds me of "The Puppet Show". It reminds me of this story because they both deal with the fact of aliens. When the tall blue alien landed on Earth everyone was very interested in him. Adding this form on the ballet, to me, is a waste of money. I do not think that it is worth our money to fund something like this.
I feel that it would be a great idea to try and talk to aliens because they might have a lot of unanswered questions we have about life, as well as useful technology. I would personally do be, I am fascinated by the idea of aliens.
The Ordinance reminds me of how the indians greeted Columbus on the Mayflower. Their job and instinct was to welcome them even though no one had ever came to their land similar to the British people. I however, do not believe that this law and ordinance should ever be passed because even though I enjoy learning about outcomes of the future and stories in science fiction class, I do not believe in aliens and I think it would be a waste of time, and of tax payers money to support and pay for this ordinance.
