Buzz Aldrin = Cocky
I was watching the Colbert Report the other night and he had a sit down with good ol(d)e Buzzy. Now, he was not outright cocky but he had that cocky swagger, that over inflated bravado. Kinda like Bush. Does he deserve to be like that? Maybe at one time. The man did walk on the moon (with all due respect to the soundstage believers). But now, he is just pushing a little animated moon movie. No room for ego anymore my friend. Your a liar. And we know it. Edgar knows it. Gordo knew it. Story Musgrave alluded to it.
Im just tired of his old fart a$$ being the poster boy for an all but dead government project and standing by some illusion of duty to his government/country.
Saw it and had to quickly rant. Thanks for reading.

Re: Buzz Aldrin = Cocky
Did you ever hear about the story of Buzz giving a lecture and being asked a specific question about the Moon trip and he immediately got violently ill and had to leave the stage?

Can't remember who recounted that, but it's out there.

He's been brainwashed/reprogrammed whatever. There are some very interesting anecdotes about him and his wife that beg explanation.

I also believe he was one of the few moon astronauts that went into a severe depression for years after his return.

Wonder why.

Re: Buzz Aldrin = Cocky
Not sure if this is the same incident you're referring to, but when a journalist confronted him at some signing or something and said that he never walked on the moon, Aldrin punched him.

Do you ever wonder if people on the inside of special projects are forced to consume something to keep them in the club, sort of like kosher food but more exclusive, maybe something created by a pharmaceutical company. This kind of scenario would ensure they were tight lipped and that all their public appearances were a kind of theater.

You mean the time that a stalker confronted him while he was i a public place with his family, and started yelling obscenities at him while pushing him back against a wall? You mean that time?

Yep, that's a classic vid. An incredibly authentic and passionate one at that - passionate for both parties.


He's bombastic and semi-charismatic. But after all, he did 'go to the moon' - or so we are all told. He's just a man after all - culpable in so many ways.


Some respond to the reprogramming in extra-special ways - I think Buzz is one of them.


Buzz Lightyear didn't come out of thin air, after all = overconfident extra-special future spaceman action figure from Toy Story.

I wouldn't expect these military guys to spill any secrets. They either talk or they don't - in either case for reasons only known to themselves or their commanders.

Because they stand on a wall and are taught to believe that 'we can't handle the truth'

I have often thought about this myself. With specific attention to Ronald Reagan. My personal belief, and its a total assumption, is that TPTB were afraid he would spill the beans. Iran Contra/UFO's etc.. Alzheimers is a devastating disease and I feel so much for Nancy. Let me just say that it had better have been natural or Im'a gonna get em' in the next life!

Some of them, as they get older and are confronted by the younger ones in their clique to 'keep the faith' and 'keep quiet' ...
well, some of them choose to make a deal to get better...
