Whoa, Nelly! Maybe you would make a good politician after all.
You are very skillful at evading answering the core questions
and introducing diversionary tactics. You are yet to dissociate
yourself from Greer, and in fact you lend him support, so if you
aren't a believer in "Space Brothers" why do you do so? He sure
as hell is!

Nefarious activities?: (a) Supporting Greer and his ilk' (b)
Trying to convert people's hurt and pain into a personal
political advantage; (c) Making a ludicrous run for Congress on
the "UFO/abduction ticket." Want more?

This "bitter old man" as you characterize me may be around to
urinate on your grave. I come from very sturdy stock, and from
principled people who don't take kindly to opportunists, or to
con-men like Greer.

I have equally chastised MUFON Leaders for not disowning con-men
and cranks, so don't feel personally put upon. I am an "equal
opportunity" critic of nefarious activities in the UFO field.
