After reading Denver Ordinance 300, I kept on thinking about the short film X-Files about the great Mutata because there was a federal bureau that went and looked and explored aliens. I think that this really relates to the article but the article explored how if this bill passed there would be people (just like X-Files) would make sure the safety of Denver from Aliens would be high and successful.
All the story reminds me of is the Men In Black movies because they are an alien response team
After looking at the petition, it made me think of the X-Files because in the X-Files film, the government was sent to investigate some sort of extraterrestrial activity. In the ballad they have it mentioned that there would be someone in place to protect Denver from extraterrestrials, which is like what the FBI was doing in the X-Files clip.
It makes me think about how there might be some things that we don't understand and are hidden from us but i think there are reasons why they are hidden from us. if the state feels it necesary to spend money on something that might not even happen then that is their choice but i don't think this should be invested in. You can be prepared for what might happen but this is going too far with the amount of preperation. Spend the money that would be more useful to the state such as schools, public roads, public buildings, a new library! something that would benefit the entire community instead of wasting it on an event that might not ever happen.
This Denver Ordinance made me think about the story Puppet show it has a lot of similarities. The alien came down to the planet and came with lots of information, this thing we would have set up would be a step in the right direction for our safety and our understanding of extraterrestrials.
The article reminds me of the short story we read, puppet show. How there are government agency's and the procedures they'd do.
This ordinance reminds me vaguely of "Puppet Show" and the way they dealt with their extraterrestrial guest with a sense of apprehension and horrorstruck curiosity. Towards the end of the short story, government officials come in and assist with the handling and interrogation of the alien, which sounds to me like something the government would be required to do should such an ordinance pass and extraterrestrial life visit Earth.
I think the idea is some what valid but it doesn't seem like it is really of importance because there has yet to be a reason to have this plan of action. Until an alien comes to our planet wanting something, there is no real threat or need for this.
After reading The article I connected the article to the science fiction short story, puppet show. In the short story puppet show, a alien came from a federation of other planets. And, wanted to invite the earth to the federation. This connects because the The people that met with the alien could be what the Denver Ordinance 300 wanted to create.
These remind me of all those theories that the government is hiding things from us. I think it would be really cool if the FBI were involved, however, most people see it as a waste of tax payer money.
While reading the Ordinance, all I could think about was the 'X-Files', the show itself. Gathering people that are trained to deal with extraterrestrials and their affairs. Which, I think, would be pretty awesome. Knowing that if and when a mysterious spaceship lands, those commissioned can just make everything a 'doozie'.
After reading Denver Ordinance 300 it reminded me of the short story we read in class "Puppet Show" where in the end the burro (the one they ignored) ended up being the extraterrestrial.
The Denver Ordinance 300 reminds me a lot of the xenophobia unit. Unless people had some sort of fear and reason to create such an ordinance or vote to have the commission made, it would have not even been a ballot issue. It also links to the fear that all the townspeople have in the Great Mutato, and how they are just looking for the reason as to why so many strange things start happening. This is also similar to the Nightmare on Elm street when all of the neighbors were frightened by the prospect of an extraterrestrial infiltrating their power source. Life outside of earth has always intrigued people and it seems only natural that people would want to be prepared for its arrival.
In my opinion, this bill is just a bit weird. It seems like the idea of this being needed is such a waste of time compared to what other things are needed. It seems like it might connect to "The Great Mutato," in the sense that government involvement dealing with the supernatural/extraterrestrial. I can't even believe the petition for something so outrageous got all the signatures it needed to make it as far as it did. The only other story this could have connected to would have been "Puppet Master," where the humans met the extraterrestrial for the first time and handled it reasonably and made the information possible for all humans.
I think that the Denver Ordinance 300 relates in a lot of ways to the film the x-files that we are watching in class. The fear that everyone has is represented in both of the storys.
As of now this idea seems rather irrational because there is no actual threat or evidence that there are aliens coming to earth. It seems like it would just be unnecessary spending.
The Denver Ordinance 300 connects to the X-Files: The Great Mutata because the FBI searched for an "alien" with full intent to disprove every claim of sighting of the Great Mutata. This doubt by the FBI is exactly how most of the people of Denver responded to the ballot. As shown by the failure to pass this commission, most of the people of Denver did not want to spend their money and time on something that might not ever be used. Those who voted for the commission to be passed connect to the town folk who fully believed in the Great Mutata and who turned out to be right. Then there were those who had no opinion of whether this commision should be passed or not. The main detective in the X-Files responded similar to the way that these people did: he had no opinion either way.
This article reminds of the short story that we read with the little girl and her brother that bully the aliens that come down to Earth and later destroy the world because of the little girls behavior towards them. It was hidden from the public that the aliens came in the story but in the Denver Ordinance 300 if something like this happened the public would know and could do something about it.
I think that the Denver Ordinance 300 represents the fears that humans have of extraterrestrials. The story I thought of first while reading the Ordinance was Random Sample. In the story the little girl was being interviewed by what I assume was a government worker. If the ordinance was put in place, someone who was appointed to their position because of the ordinance would interview.
After briefly reading through "The Denver Ordinance" one story that came to mind was "Puppet Show." Puppet show depicts what the ordinance is leading to. If any ufo sighting took place, how should we communicate, and happens? What happens if any outside creature comes and communicates with us? What actions should take place. That is what happened in puppet show, and that why I thought about that.
The Denver Ordinance 300, reminded me of the X-Files because just like in the show, the government is planning and investigating extraterrestrial beings.
After reading Denver Ordinance 300, it reminds me about this alien TV show that I watched over evidence that has been found over the years, but the government took away most of their research and findings because they don't want the world to be any more curious than we already are.
This is a great step in man E.T relations! I made the connection to "Puppet Show" because of how the ordinance approached contact with an extra terrestrial. The proposal is almost like that of a foreign policy the ordinance sound like it would treat aliens as equal beings. I am very interested to know that Coloradans are open too extra terrestrial contact
After reading the ordinance i begin to relate the petition to the story "puppet show" because it defines the connection with outside life forms.The ordinance would allow us to expand our external touch with other worlds. But the government does normally take away our information on extraterrestrial contact and makes it a highly classified territory.
The article reminds me of the short story we read, puppet show. How there are government agency's and what they do.
