Another Day Of The Undead

August 24, 2010 by  

Another Day Of The Undead

I’m no aficionado of the vampire craze. Not that I don’t get the allure of watching oversexed attractive people chase each other around; but vampires are (were) bad. Anything which can fit into a category of “undead” is not good news, no matter how impressive its abs might be.

So imagine my horror Friday when I was greeted by the visage of one of recent history’s most vile grotesqueries. Like a teenager in one of those psycho-zombie-in-a-hockey-mask movies, I thought we’d driven a stake through the heart of this creature, doused it in gasoline and set it on fire. And yet, still it returned — the lumbering bulk, the ominous drone, the gaping maw.

Al Gore is back.

While the rest of us were browsing in the non-fiction section, Gore resurfaced like the “Creature from the Green Lagoon.” According to The Hill, Gore noted on his blog (hey, good thing he invented the Internet) that Americans need to take to the streets to protest the industrialized world’s failure to act on “the climate crisis.”

How does the most famous loser in Presidential history keep returning from beyond the political grave? Shouldn’t Gore be hanging out with Walter Mondale; watching Captain Planet reruns at the Old Vice President’s Home?

At the very least, shouldn’t he be at one of his multimillion dollar mansions, getting a *ahem* massage? I mean, didn’t we push this loon out of the Prius and speed off in a cloud of carbon neutral exhaust and ecologically low-impact recycled tire dust?

To make “The Revenge of the Gore-Zilla” more terrifying, he’s brought backup. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, remarking on Sunday about floods in Pakistan and forest fires in Russia, said “there is a linkage,” between those disasters and global warming. America’s termagant-to-the-world made some further gloom-and-doom comments, but the message was clear: Not only is global warming theoretically bad, but it’s literally coming to get us.

But there’s a theoretical hitch in their literal fear mongering. Global warming scares liberals the same way Freddy Krueger scares 7-year-olds; although liberals don’t have dad to come home and check the closet. Global warming is the phrenology of the modern age. It’s a scam, wrapped in a racket, shrouded in a swindle. It’s warmer now than it was then (“then,” in the climate change lexicon meaning “winter”); and that increase in temperature coincides with societal development (a climate-change phrase meaning “summer”), therefore — it’s our fault.

What was once junk science reserved for late-night talk show appearances by coke-addled Hollywood stars and burned out academics who escaped the ’60s with acid flashbacks and tenure has become the cause célèbre of the Luddite Left. Global warming is a theory which has been “proven” by touting the molehill of anecdotal evidence (it’s warmer in some places, there’s less ice in some areas, hurricanes are bad), while ignoring the mountain of evidence to the contrary (it’s colder in some places, there’s more ice in some areas, hurricanes have always been bad.)

The danger isn’t just endless griping from Woodstock-surplus types who are so ecologically sensitive they’ve stopped bathing (thereby making the rest of us more sensitive, albeit less ecologically so). It’s the shadowy specter which lurks just behind the façade of saving the planet: greed. Gore may babble about “An Inconvenient Slide Show,” but he lives like a king and has a carbon footprint the size of one of those Paleolithic rhinos which went extinct the last time the Earth got too warm. (Or was it too cold? Was anyone checking the Indricotherium’s exhaust?) And Clinton may talk about our impact on the planet, but I’m betting she and Bubba have no plans to downsize their Chappaqua palace.

Global warming = power. The real danger isn’t just floods, fires and hurricanes; it’s Kyoto Accords, Cap and Trade and Al Gore’s Silliest Home Videos. It’s the Democrat party convincing chowder head college students that only by voting for them can they save the planet.

For that matter, it’s the Democrat party convincing said chowder heads that the planet requires saving. When the bunko artists running the global warming industry got caught fabricating data, the response was: “But, we have a consensus!” Sure you do. And there used to be consensus that the Earth is flat.

As long as we allow the wingnuts to keep opening global warming’s scientific coffin, Gore will keep coming at us. Freddy Krueger will only go away if people stop going to the theatre to see what’s happening on Elm Street. And Al Gore and his climatological claptrap will only disappear when we stop feeding him the one thing he needs to survive:

    Uh-OH!!! After buying those two multi-million dollar water front homes, Gore must be hard up for money. He only made 300 million dollars in the first eight years after leaving office. All off his Gorebull warming BS!!!!

    • James

      All of which proves there really is a devil.

  • Claire

    What a disapointment!! I should have known better. I thought this article was going to be about scary movies. I love scary movies!! Now you had to drag in Gore and ruin it all.

    • libertytrain

      Claire – He always gave me the creeps – that is scary.

      • Claire

        libertytrain–I know. He was/is a weirdo. No personality whatsoever. Plus the fact he was more or less useless.

  • s c

    Gore is scary, that is true. Those who line up to idolize him are even scarier. How do you make people who are supposedly adults realize that someone who never had an ounce of ‘gravitas’ is dependent upon herds of head-up-rumpers? As long as they follow, The Gore will go through the motions of ‘leading’ his lemmings.
    Take away The Gore’s followers, and what you have is just another incompetent, career politician whose elevator never went to the top. The lights may be turned on, but nobody’s home.
    Ask Tipper about The Gore. It took her a long time, but she’s finally had enough of him. She has my
    sympathy. When it comes to The Gore, I wouldn’t walk across the street to bet him that he can’t spell ‘gravitas’ or define it.

      Just remember how Mother Theresa said things to him in Washington on national TV. Why haven’t we woke up yet?

  • viktor leben

    Actually a slightly higher carbon dioxide level would increase the amount of oxygen too. Plants would grow bigger.

    But let’s get practical ! Al Gore should be more worried about possible oxygen depletion ! Especially when we have massive oil spills in the oceans, or the cutting down of the rain forest.

    We should GRADUALLY shift to greener energy producing technologies. We should give the technology time to develop, so the implementation cost go down $$$$ . Let laizzez-faire capitalism solve it. Someday we’ll have devloped better energy producing technologies other than fossil fuels ..

    No carbon taxes, Mr. Gore ! How is that going to solve the problem ?
    How about tax breaks for businesses/homeowner who use green technology ? “Carbon credits” is just a scam ….

    • Jim H.

      The guy that think “carbon credits” work must also have tried “calorie credits”. Your still fat,Al.

    • 45caliber

      Cap and trade is simply a money scam. They want to sell something that already exists that doesn’t even belong to them. In fact, Bawny Franks has come up with a way to sell carbon credits that officially belong to YOU. His idea is that Fanny and Freddie own the mortgages on thousands (millions?) of homes, each of which are worth carbon credits. So Fannie and Freddie can sell those instead of you, the home owner. And since it was his idea, which he “patented”, he is to get about 25% of that money for simply thinking up this fiasco.

  • crabjack

    It’s a good thing to see so many people not accept the fact that our (human) uncontrolled human excesses are affecting the global condition. The less we do about it, the sooner earth will rid itself of our race and get on with the job of cleaning itself up.

    • Al Sieber

      crabass, how do you know what facts we accept? you need to go first then.

      • Dan Burke

        Let me see. I think you are both right. We impacting the global environment. We are not causing global warming. However, Al, you don’t say a whole lot so I am guessing that you might believe like me.

        1. Those who say that global warming is a hoax are right. It is a hoax intended for the profits and power gains of a select elite. Have you considered what object poverty the rest of us would live in a “green” economy? Computers use electricity too…. In other words, we would be subject to all their whims because we would not have the information, will, or ability to wage an effort to free ourselves. Our cars would only go about 40-100 miles anyways so we couldn’t possibly congregate on Washington DC, let alone our own state capitals when we do object….

        2. Mankind IS polluting the earth. Now I am skeptic. Not that we are polluting, but about the methods and means of cleanup. I want government OUT of the picture. Let us, the people, learn to clean it up. I am dirt poor, but if I had millions of bucks I would gladly wager that a free market will clean up better than a controlled economy. At first, it might be messier, but in the end a free market can find the most economical method while a controlled economy will go with whatever method can be “sold” to the controlling class as the right method–and if it “sells” to the masses the need for the controlling class then it is easier to “sell” to the controlling class–they have their egos to fill and need to know that the masses need a controlling class too…. By the way, in the past year I have learned a lot about the earth’s own ability to clean up our waste. Bacteria to eat oil. Bacteria that might be consuming plastic in the ocean. Even our steel ships sank to the ocean floor can be literally consumed. Some places the junk sits there forever it seems, and other places the very life of the earth is eating away at the evidence that we are here.

        • Hugh Jordin

          I am hardly a Gore fan, but most REPUTABLE scientists recognize that global warming is indeed a profound problem and NOT a hoax as some would like to believe. Satellite photos, melting glaciers and ice sheets, etc. provide more than enough evidence to to convince a rational person that this is a problem. There is also clear evidence that human activity is hastening the process.

          Just because you don’t like the messenger, Gore, does not mean that the message is false.

          The same forces that deny global warming and would have you believe it is a hoax are the ones that preached that cigarette smoking is harmless, prescription medicine have no side effects, working in coal mines does not cause black lung disease, invent holidays to sell greeting cards, it’s okay to kill all the buffalo, it’s okay to cut down all the old growth forests, strip mining does not harm the environment, factories dumping poison in rivers is okay for people downstream, and Sarah Palin is intelligent and a worthy spokesperson for the conservative cause.

          When there is money to be made there is a flood of “experts” that can rationalize any position. Remember all those tobacco company scientists and doctors that provided evidence that smoking is harmless?

          If you are TRULY conservative, there is nothing more worth conserving than our precious planet. As far as we know, it is the only one humans can live on, and the only one within any reasonable distance that contains intelligent life.

          • ChuckL

            Hugh, you have a problem. Global Warming may or may not be true, but there is no reliable evidence that human beings have any effect on the global average temperature. The relationship between undersea volcanoes and the average temperature of the earth has never been publicized. Nor has the surface temperature of the sun, which until recently was believed to be a constant, but has now been found to vary considerably been accounted for.

            perhaps you should accept that “Sensationalism is a clue to Fraud.”

          • Gary

            First see here
            en.wikipedia.org./wiki/List_of_scientists_opposing_the_mainstream_scientific_
            assessment_of_global_warming

            http://bit.ly/DmacJ
            …or google any other list of the 1000′s of high level scientists against AGW

            The problem is that you’re not looking correctly at this.
            No one doubts there was a warming period.

            What is contended is the cause. Anthropogenic means caused by humans.
            The short period of warming that occurred mostly during the 80s and 90s and a little bit since is not challenged as being anthropogenic (caused by human activity).

            What is our primary source of heat?

            The star we orbit – wow, big surprise for AGW fanatics it seems.
            Solar activity and various other smaller factors such as less cloud coverage (itself due to increases in solar ejections) are considered to be the only viable and indeed the only possible cause.

            How else do you explain that Mars also warmed?
            The 2007 HadCrut data displayed a global temp. drop of nearly .5 degrees C! Enough to cause the record cold of the following years!

            During the middle ages the world warmed much more than it did during our time and that historical FACT has been conveniently left out of or skewered and minimized in all the IPCC AGW fanatics (conspirators) data slide shows and reports!

            The world did not end and humanity survived it then.

            One of the fathers of climatology stated that if wee compare earth to an 8 story building and piled up all of the possible CO2 emissions man has contributed we would still have only covered less than an inch above the first floor’s rug!

            All this hype over globull warming is political plotting by the UN under the Agenda 21 initiative that was designed as a means of creating a scare that would push the world into accepting a one world government to save the planet – the AGW is indeed a scandal, not just a hoax.

            Scare people enough and they will beg you to save the planet no matter how many liberties they are told they must give up (patriot act mean anything to ya?) or how much it will cost them – and enrich the Gore’s, Obama’s and UN IPCC chief etc. of this world who are all getting dirty rotten stinking filthy rich due to the lies they push.

            Do your homework and get it right.

          • libertytrain

            Gary – the answer is obvious to your question – Wasn’t George W president -
            ‘How else do you explain that Mars also warmed?

            Hugh jordin,
            The only way he would be misinformed is if he was studying the data the global warming scientists were “fixing” to fit their scheme!!!

          • Hugh Jordin

            Sorry, Joe, too many reputable scientists with no political agendas from countries all over the world disagree with you.

            But you will believe what you wish.

          • Al Sieber

            Hugh, what about the 30,000 scientists that disagree? is it because they don’t count? and Al Gore had them silenced?. you don’t know “JACK” about the environment, and you can’t face facts, you and the rest of the MARXISTS that don’t do research

        • Al Sieber

          Dan Burke, I agree with you. I also believe we have a serious pollution problem also. but I don’t believe in Global Warming. the earth goes through cycles, besides Al Gore is a politician, and who believes them?

    • DaveH

      Yeah, sure. Here we are in the middle of a Great Recession, with less man-made CO2 being created, and Gore is blaming the Russian Fires on man-made warming. I guess we need to produce more CO2.
      By the way, Methane is a more important Greenhouse Gas than CO2, so the Greens should be happy that all those methane-producing trees have burnt down:
      http://www.csmonitor.com/2006/0119/p13s01-sten.html

      What a web they weave.

      • eddie47d

        Dave H.: Mr half truth? We all know that trees breath in carbon dioxide so your response was decisive. You are the one weaving the ugly web! Keppler in you article said,”he “speculates that because the methane emissions are so SMALL,they wouldn’t have been detected in the field studies”. Which takes us back to the “rice pipeline” theory. (most methane comes from the muck that the plants or trees grow in). Little probably comes directly from the plants. I encourage all to read the Christian Science Monitor article and form your own conclusion.

        • DaveH

          Eddie,
          Keep grasping at straws, Eddie. I wouldn’t expect any less from an ignorant Liberal.
          What is the major Greenhouse Gas, Eddie? I doubt you even know being the ignorant unread Liberal you are.

        • eddie47d

          Dave: Are you going to pull up anymore websites that make you look foolish. Is it just smoke and mirrors for you to waste other peoples time? You use to be rational and now you are grasping at straws.

          • JeffH

            Brilliant, totaly brilliant…and creative too! Wow!

        • Granny Mae

          eddie47d,

          I just saw a program today on History channel and they were showing and talking about the trees and forests and the decomposing of leafs and twigs and other material on the forest floor, gives off a lot of methane gas. Just imagine back in the dinosaur’s days and all the vegetation then and all those big piles of dino dung ! Lots of methane ! Then would you believe, they showed a land fill and because they cover the land fills with plastic, they don’t decompose like they should so they have to take measures to cause them to decompose. We really do need to be less poluting for our own sake but there are a lot of things going on other than the doings of man that cause all the problems that we are experiencing. Most of which we can do nothing about! We talk about going to solar energy but at this time solar is too expensive for most people to afford and even if you can then you have the polution problem of disposing of batteries later. We tout neuclear power but then we have the problem of disposing of the waste and if we have an accident with it, it would be a disaster beyond the gulf oil spill many times over! I think at this point in time our best bet is too be a whole lot more conservative with what we have and wait till a little more research is done . As for Al Gore, I don’t have much use for him and I never have. He will pat you on the back with one hand and pick your pocket with the other !

      • kate8

        DaveH, I’ve yet to hear a single lib comment about Gore’s own excesses. His monumental hypocracy.

        They sure have a way of just closing their eyes to inconvenient truths, don’t they?

        • eddie47d

          Okay! Al Gore is just another greedy American entrepreneur,Happy now? Most Americans can’t afford one simple home let alone all the mega mansions I’ve seen over the years. Most wealthy folks are arrogant and self centered. Yes,Al probably falls into that category. We ought to tax the hell out of all the greedy “Rockefeller’s”. They all try and influence world policies with all their money but leave the average folks crying for some common sense. As long as I see the average worker or homeowner struggling to maintain themselves in life;then I give little credence to our monetary system. The wealthy get wealthier in the blink of an eye so I don’t see them earning a darn thing. They TAKE much more than they give back. “Now that is an inconvienent truth”.

    • 45caliber

      You want to make a difference in CO2, which Al insists is the very worst pollutant (since he has expensive equipment to remove it.)?

      Go plant something. A tree is very good since it can last a lifetime and remove far more CO2 than even you can produce. But basically anything that is a plant removes CO2 from the air – and they grow better when they can get it. They then use the carbon (C) and release the O2 (oxygen) back to the atmosphere so you can breathe it.

      Actually the forests in the NW USA can handle all the CO2 presently produced in the US. Amazon or Siberia forests can each handle more CO2 than the entire world can put out. So I don’t see a big problem – except that poor Al can’t make billions off his equipment no one wants.

      • Vicki

        CO2 suppression is plant oppression. :)

      • DaveH

        45,
        Read the above article. Methane is a more potent heat-trapper than carbon dioxide. And now scientists have found that trees give off methane.
        Oh, what are we to do? The sky is falling!

        • 45caliber

          DaveH:
          The answer is obvious: You have to put diapers on all the trees! That’s what they want to do to cows, you know. Or is it some sort of methane collector? I can’t keep up with all their advances any more.

          • eddie47d

            We need to put a diaper on all the phooney bull that keeps pouring out of this site. I hope it isn’t contagious.

          What, oh what, are we to do?

          It must be our sacred duty to stop breathing! It’s for the sake of our planet!

      crabby padie
      Let me get this strait they would have you belive that co2 is killing the planet so stop breathing and do your part.then there the green issue we all need to be on solar and wind so how many pannels would it take to outfit chicken littles house so he can live the life he is now?
      probably more than it would take to light up 10 houses of the average joe and the cost would be in the millions.why I know this is I have been off the grid for 16 yrs and knows what it takes.I dont see myself as green just smart to know that one day all of you will be with out power for a vary long time.I also know to turn this country into a green nation they couldnt print enough funny money fast enough even if they printed every day untill the next century. trillions will seem like pennies.Im not saying that they shouldnt start converting but the technology isnt there yet and the prices are way out of reach.why do you think that all the solar pannel makers sold out to the oil companies because the cost was prohibitive.

      • Granny Mae

        dan az,

        You speak the truth ! The hubby and I wanted to get off grid years ago but just couldn’t afford it with so many other things going on in our lives,

  • Scott

    The best reason to find sustainable alternative energy sources has nothing to with Gore’s crusade. We need to sever our dependence on Islamic nations who are committed to destroying us. It would be a major step in the right direction to cease giving them billions of dollars every year.

    • blv54

      where does the idea come from that the islamic nations are destroying us? were the ones murdering them in Iraq and pakistan we need to keep our troops at home and get rid of our corrupt government that keeps saying yes to all these unnessasary wars, we need to secure our borders and take to the streets not for stupid globel warming but for all our rights they’ve taken from us, body scanners, treated like criminals in the airports, pushed and shoved around,our courts allow the cops to beat us to death and there’s no justice, and now were hearing they want to put cameras in our homes, I would rather be dead than live in the world their creating.

      • 45caliber

        blv54:
        It is apparent that you have no wish to support our troops and wouldn’t defend the country yourself if you thought there was the slightest chance of being killed. Go away.

    • DaveH

      There is another side to that story. If we use up their oil first, then who wins?
      Mind you, I’m not for Government controlled energy. I would much rather have Free Markets and let the consumer decide which energy to use at what price.
      Vote Libertarian.

    • 45caliber

      Scott:
      Actually, the only country we really get oil from over there is Iran. Iraq’s oil and Saudi oil goes almost entirely to China or Europe. We get almost a third of our oil from Iran.

      The rest of the oil (outside the US which produces about 1/3 of what we need) comes from Canada, Mexico, and Venezualia.

      Besides, there isn’t too much to worry about the Mid-East oil much longer. They are all down to about the last 10% or so of the oil they started with. That’s why they are so interested in investing as much money somewhere else or building monuments to futility like Dubai.

    • ChuckL

      Scott, I will make the presumption that you are talking about oil. The Islamic nations did not put us into this crisis. our own environ=mentalists die it. They are the ones who stopped us from building nuclear power plants and who caused power prices to increase by eliminating inexpensive sources of power.

      We have had very little danger from coal, we have scrubbers to clean the exhaust stacks of pollutants. WE have oil skimmers and were offered much more efficient ones by the Dutch when the the leak in the Gulf occurred. Our president declined this offer on the basis of the Jones law which prohibits the transport of goods between U. S. ports in non U. S. ships. He prevented outside assistance for over 10 weeks. No one has yet explained how skimming oil from the surface of the ocean is transporting goods between U. S. ports.

      WE have at least a 50 year supply of oil available in Montana and the Dakotas. Environmentalists prevent us from using this.

      We must change the environmental laws to place humans first.

    Thats who’s running this country a bunch of blood sucking vampires, only instead of sucking blood, they’re sucking our rights away from us, and everything else they can steal from us.

    • crabjack

      Rights ALWAYS come with responsibilities.

      • Al Sieber

        crabjack, what’s that suppose to mean?

        • crabjack

          A native american saying, paraphrased, says that the trees don’t belong to us, we are only taking care of them for our children. That is responsibility. Rights is not doing whatever we like just because it pleases us or because we profit from us. The child complains that the world is not fair when he doesn’t get his way, and he throws a tantrum. I am seeing a lot of tantrums being thrown here.

          • Al Sieber

            crab, I’m talking about constitutional rights, which are from God and Nature. instead of throwing a tantrum, maybe we should throw a revolution.

          • crabjack

            Our constitutional rights come from our constitution, and the men who wrote it. I do agree somewhat we should have ‘thrown’ a revolution – about 8 years ago.

          • DaveH

            Taking care of them for our children? Like your President is taking care of our Children with his $2.7 Trillion addition to the National Debt in just 19 months? Your focus needs redirection, Crabjack.

            crabjack says:
            “Our constitutional rights come from our constitution, and the men who wrote it.”

            So you believe if we were to remove the Constitution and write one that says all rights belong to ME that you would have to come to me for any “rights” I might choose to give you?

          • kate8

            crab, Is your point that you think the trees belong to the elites, and that said elites have the right to control how we use them?

            Are you meaning that we are only here for a short time and should be good stewards of all that is here with us so our children and their children can also have the use of this earth and all that is on it? If so I agree. Native Americns have always made use of everything here for their livng but they only took what they needed and never stripped the land clean of everything. This is a good example to follow.

        Joseph C Moore, thank you for service to America. As for ‘Ramon,’ he sounds like a community college space cadet who thinks he’s attending MIT.
        A delusioned idiot is simply another term for a progressive. If ‘Ramon’ lives long enough, he might be able to keep focused on the main topic, which is Al “duh” Gore. Some people (including Ramon)have very low standards for their ‘gods.’
        Ramon is a classic example of what happens when people confuse potential with results. If The Gore is really concerned about Mama Earth or “global warming/cooling,” all he needs to do is stop his continuous oral flatulence. And Ramon needs to get a life.

I mean other than strip club visits??
          You support a party that hates you, they wish you would die. They try to deny you health care and refer to you as an ‘animal’. You voting for a party that will not support you.

    • ladymorgi

      Uh, you seem to have not picked up on some things, first off… the KLAN was a southern institution, created to stop Black men from raping white women, which the carpetbaggers told them they had a right to do after the War of Northern Aggression.

      Arizona’s law is the same as the federal laws regarding immigration, however, Arizona intends to enforce it, unlike the Federales.

      Perhaps you should do some research before you start throwing names around.

      • J.Michael

        You over-simplify the the reason the KKK was created. Perhaps you should take your own advice and do some research, instead of looking like a retard.

          J. Michael,
          Perhaps instead of name-calling people, you could enlighten us about the real reasons the KKK was created?

          By the way, I thought the topic was about The Gore
          (aka The Duh, Chunky, progressivism’s answer to intelligence, Mr. ‘I was robbed,’ living proof that Darwin was wrong, the high priest of global warming and global cooling and all things unscientific but extremely PROFITABLE – the list goes on and on).

        http://www.helium.com/items/505652-the-ku-klux-klan-in-american-history

        • vicki

          “The first Klan was founded in 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee by veterans of the Confederate Army. Although it never had an organizational structure above the local level, similar groups across the South adopted the name and methods. Klan groups spread throughout the South as an insurgent movement after the war. As a secret vigilante group, the Klan reacted against Radical Republican control of Reconstruction by attempting to restore white supremacy by threats and violence, including murder, against black and white Republicans. In 1870 and 1871 the federal government passed the Force Acts, which were used to prosecute Klan crimes. Prosecution of Klan crimes and enforcement of the Force Acts suppressed Klan activity. In 1874 and later, however, newly organized and openly active paramilitary organizations, such as the White League and the Red Shirts, started a fresh round of violence aimed at suppressing Republican voting and running Republicans out of office. These contributed to white conservative Democrats’ regaining political power in all the Southern states by 1877.”

          “Historian Eric Foner observed:

          In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired restoration of white supremacy. Its purposes were political, but political in the broadest sense, for it sought to affect power relations, both public and private, throughout Southern society. It aimed to reverse the interlocking changes sweeping over the South during Reconstruction: to destroy the Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

      I don’t really think you know what hate is. Hate is an all-consuming desire to destroy whatever you hate. We conservatives (not Republicans, thank you) don’t hate you or even what you want to do. We think it and you are stupid for wanting to steal money from someone willing and desiring to work to reward those, like you, who feel that work is beneath them. We feel that such people should either support themselves or starve. That isn’t hate, it is just contempt. Big difference.

      • DaveH

        The Liberal posters have shown time and again that they are the Haters, with all their name-calling, ridicule, and condescension. They simple are attempting to lower us to their level.

        • DaveH

          simply

        • 45caliber

          The one real problem is that the liberals actually BELIEVE all their own comments. After all, they are elites and we aren’t. Therefore anything that they might say obviously is correct and anyone who disagrees is wrong. They believe we hate them because they can face and even be proud of being hated; but contempt is something they just can’t face.

          • DaveH

            They have been making that “Hate” accusation ever since I can remember. But as anybody who reads their comments can see, they are the haters. What vile creatures they are. That probably explains a lot about their anger towards Corporate America. I mean, who in their right mind would want to employ such disrespectful useless human beings?

          • 45caliber

            DaveH:

          What? Put down that bottle, Miner.

    • eddie47d

      You could be correct Santi the end could be very near if we keep plundering the earth and don’t put back. Most farmers in the USA are responsible and replenish the earth but it wasn’t always that way. Certainly not in all countries either. Some people are trying to save the oceans but more are taking out than can be sustained. Most fish species are on the “critical” list. We certainly can’t rely on farm raised fish because of health issues. (I do eat farmed fish if wild is not available).

      • DaveH

        Most fish species are on the critical list? Do you have any references to back that up? Or is it just more Liberal fabricated fact?

        • DaveH

          According to this website, there are over 15,300 species of fish on the list and it is still growing:
          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2003/10/031024064333.htm

          • DaveH

            That list is of the “Known” species of fish, not the endangered list.
            And can anybody in their right mind even attempt to believe that they know which are endangered in the vast unexplored oceans of the world?
            I said “in their right mind”, Eddie. That leaves you out.

          • eddie47d

            “If a liberal says something it is fabricated” Oh Yes, Conservatives always think they control the truth. Far from it! Finding new species in the ocean doesn’t mean they will survive.As a matter of fact the more we find out about these new species the closer they come to extinction. There are very few new animal species being found and when they are discovered we have to make sure they stay isolated.Once their territories are open to human
            encroachment the species dwindles. The same with plants;for there are new ones found every so often.Their rarity and isolation immediately puts them in danger with human contact. Why would it be any different with fish in our oceans. Think about how Native Americans and others around the world dwindled once in contact with other humans (diseases).Fishermen go farther out to get their catches. Larger amounts are taken from the oceans because of depletions near shore. (bigger boats and bigger nets).Sandbar sharks and smooth hammerhead sharks have lost 99% of their breed. European Grey Whales are now extinct and Japan wants to lift the moratorium of all whale hunting.90% of all Cod has been fished out in last 100 years.With a growing world wide population what do you think that means? There is a high market for sharks(Fins) with up to 73 million taken each year. Sharks are a necessity for the health of the oceans so their demise would not be a good thing. Most new species found are small and rare and of little food value to humans,(like clown fish,Nemo).There breeding grounds are being disturbed by humans. Which usually means less fish. The larger fish that feed on them will then be next.Now that is a domino effect.

        • DaveH

          They can’t even get it right on land, and Eddie thinks they can accurately count the fish population in the ocean and determine if they are endangered?
          http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1594/is_6_10/ai_57800738/

          Something to think about. Who is counting these dwindling fish populations across the vast oceans, and how could they possibly make accurate counts? And how much are we paying these people to attempt to make these counts? That sounds like a good area for budget cuts to me.

          • eddie47d

            Dave H.; How would you count any species to assure the survival of mankind? Scientists go out in the field. The facts don’t just magically appear in books. Someone has to do the ground work. Apparently even in those sites you bring up.

        • JeffH

  • Stephen

    Maybe Al doesn’t have it just right but in all seriousness who can deny our climate is changing? Is there something humans can do about it? Some who want to profit from the status quo say; No, lets do business as usual. Which is put as many people at a disadvantage and dependent on them (big oil, big pharm, big agriculture, big government, big banking)as possible. They are all blood suckers of the worst kind.
    Maybe quantum science is getting close to getting it right. Maybe all in existence is all one and the illusion is we are separate from Nature, the planet, other species, God, the cosmos. At one time we thought the Aspen forest was made up of separate trees. Now we know they have the same root. After all the power and energy and conciseness are infinite between the molecular particles of everything. It is apparent our beliefs are what separate us from everything that is. When you consider our subconscious handles information hundreds of thousands if not millions of times faster the our than our conscious mind and it does not evaluate its’ beliefs. We are all susceptible to manipulation.
    The most obvious example can be seen in the TV advertisements for the top 2 soft drink company’s. They show us pictures of what we hold dear, family love, fun, people coming together around the feelings of joy and connectedness. Their product has no life advancing qualities. Some would say and probable prove it is a slow poison contributing to the deaths and medical conditions of untold numbers of people. No where in the conscious part of the ad does it say it is good for you. The subconscious will believe the way to have the joy of connectedness is in the consumption of the product.
    We all have the responsibility to uncover the subconscious beliefs that are contributing to the downward spiral of humanity. We need to cultivate the ability to distinguish the true intentions and motivations of the propaganda we are bombarded with. I am pretty sure demonizing Al Gore in not going to bring us closer to living in a homeostatic world.
    Those of you who are content to move in the direction of destruction for the joy of the second coming. Are you sure you aren’t who you have been waiting for?

      Stephen, WHERE HAVE ALL THE DINOSAURS GONE,did king gore dispatch them to greener pasture

    • 45caliber

      Stephen:
      You asked if there was anything humans could do about our climate. The answer is NO. We can’t change it for better … or for worse. To the world, the human race are simply ants running around on the surface with delusions of grandure.

      Consider the temperature differences between summer and winter, for instance. In the US the difference can be as much as 50 degrees or more. And the ONLY difference between them is that the world has a slight tilt. In summer you are perhaps 500 miles closer to the sun than in the winter.

      If the surface of the sun warms or cools even slightly, the temp of the world will go up or down. And the surface of the sun is now starting to get more solar flares than the last fifty years or so – which places us even closer to that heat.

      Actually, according to an old climatologist that I read about, we are entering the STANDARD earth’s weather pattern – not being able to tell the weather from one year to the next. He stated that until about 1950 or so, we NEVER knew what the weather would be a year from now. But at the present the world is experiencing a weird weather pattern that allows us to presently do it. We are returning to the NORMAL climate but many of us alive today weren’t alive to experience the fluxuating weather before. So we think it is turning bad when it is actually only returning to its normal pattern.

      The real problem is that too many people consider mankind (and themselves) the most important thing in the universe instead of scurrying ants that doesn’t bother the world or the universe at all.

        Good comment, 45.

      • Hugh Jordin

        In one way we are utterly unimportant to the universe, but in another we are . If it was not for our species PERCEIVING the the cosmos it’s existence would not mater unless there are other sentient beings out there.

        In a way, the Buddhists are right in saying that all is illusion. As we project our own meaning onto whatever we perceive, we project our own human limitations, the result of our upbringing and cultural mores, and our own denials of what to others may seem reality. That is why self delusion is a trap that every individual falls into. Even those of us who write for and post on this site.

        Consider any time beyond the immediate moment and your immediate surroundings. As you are not there to experience directly, you must rely on the collective experience of our species to understand the greater “reality”. If our species did not exist, the reality of the universe would not matter… at least to us.

        So please value our species, and our planet, because as far as we are concerned, there is only reality because we perceive it.

          Hugh:
          I’m certain that there is other intelligent life out there.

          One astronomer some years ago made the following statement, if I can get it right:

          “If only one of a million stars have planets, and if only one of a million stars with planets have life, and if only one of a million stars with planest with life has intelligent life, there are over a million stars in our galaxy alone with intelligent life.”

          That does not count other galaxies, please note. And our astronomers have been able to verify planets (no one really knows what kind) in every system they have been able to check so far as I know.

          • Hugh Jordin

            Very good points… It is more than likely that there is other intelligent life, I just meant as far as we know.

            Excellent point.According to Drake’s equation there is five livable planets for every man,woman and child that ever lived on earth.Einstein’s theories may have been seriously flawed.Einstein stated nothing can traveled faster than the speed of light,which has proven to be be wrong.Gravity waves are 10,000 times faster than the speed of light and tacyons are 100 million times faster than gravity waves. In next one hundred years we may do like the trekies,not beam me up Scotty,but beam me to another planet,Scotty.We may be able to break down our atomic structures and hitch a ride with the tachyons to our designated planets and reassembled on that home planet.

      • kate8

        Good grief, the Earth is forever changing. For millions (billions?) of years the Earth has been through drastic changes.

        The Sahara was once a land that was fertile, lush and green. Sea fossils are found in the Mojave. Ice has covered continents at times, and then things heat up. Seas dry up. Rivers change course. Mountains rise and fall.

        We have only kept climate records for the past 100 years, and we consider that a standard. Give me a break.

        Any sensible person can see that this is nothing but a scam. Who cares how may “scientists” affirm this conclusion. They are but blips on the screen of history, and know nothing in the vast realm of knowledge to be had. Of all there is to know about our Universe, our knowledge is that of a newborn babe.

        Let’s get some perspective here.

        • coal miner

          Granny,

          A smart remark,
          A top physcist said that.Here is what he said; “Many thought that Tachyons were theorectical particles and these elusive particles belong in the realm of science fiction,two months ago scientist discovered they do exist.Proof, the atom smasher”.John Stewart mills was right,most conservatives are stupid. They are stuck in the past.If you got any more silly remarks let me know.

            It wasn’t intended to be a smart ass remark! My thinking is if in the future we can disassemble and reassemble molicules then maybe there is a possibility that a human body that has a deformation from one cause or another could be reassembled in the right order and fix the problem ! I know about the colider and all the new things they are discovering from it. I’m not stupid and I never will be. Maybe a little dense at times but aren’t we all ? Thanks for your dense remark !

        Id like to add that the sun reverses polls about every 11yrs and the increase of solar radiation also increases perporsionitaly and the earth also does the same except that it took some couple of thousand years to reverse its polls which are happening now no one knows for sure if it is admeaditly or prolonged but I guess will find out shortly.

    • Ceddy Bear

      Steve do your research. “They” said the same thing way back in the 70′s. But then it was global cooling. New day same ole crap. It’s true there is nothing new under the sun. Use the brain that you were blessed with and do realistic research and stop believing so called experts with no credentials who don’t even believe the crap that they are flinging in your direction. But as long as you believe it their pockets stay full

      • 45caliber

        You got that right! The whole “global warming” and “global cooling” thing was designed to get someone (preferably a government since they have more money) to finance “research” and give them big pay checks. And as long as that money keeps coming in they will continue to find reasons to get it.

        • dan az

          45
          thats exactly right I watched an interview once with this scientist that wrote a book that said we where going into a mini ice age when asked why he changed his mind to warming he said the research grants was the only reason it kept him in the monie.

    • eddie47d

      Good comment Stephan

  • Staci.Jeep Girl

    LOL…I too didn’t expect this article to be about that loser AL GORE!

  • 45caliber

    There are two reasons Big Al keeps popping up.

    1) He is singlehandedly responsible for the largest tax hike (not counting Oblama’s healthcare program) in the history of the US – and he got it through without having anyone vote on it so the Congressmen can all look clean. (For those of you who don’t know, he added about $20 a month to all the telephone bills. It appears that the telephone company is charging you because they didn’t want people to know just how much tax you were paying on it. The telephone company agreed because they get to keep 10% or so of it.) Congress feels that they owe him, just as they owed him the Presidency.

    2) He owns huge shares of the companies that can make the equipment to remove CO2 from the exhaust of stacks. If he can get the government to require it, he stands to make more money than Bill Gates. So he’s not going to keep quiet as long as he has even a slight chance of getting the money. (On the other hand, if you REALLY want to get rid of CO2, plant a few trees. It works far better, restores O2, which we breathe, to the air, and is FAR cheaper!)

      Secretary Clinton’s Climate Con
      IBD Editorials | August 23, 2010 | Investors Business Daily
      In an interview with Anwar Iqbal of Pakistan’s Dawn TV posted on the State Department’s Web site, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while discussing the Pakistani floods and American relief efforts, gratuitously said “having gone through Katrina and seeing what’s happening around the world with the increase in the number of natural disasters and the extent of the damage that they’re causing … some people believe (they are) linked to global climate change.”

      When asked if this was her belief, Mrs. Clinton responded: “I think that there is a linkage. You can’t point to any particular disaster and say, ‘It was caused by … .’ But we are changing the climate of the world; we’ve seen that with the Russian forest fires … .”

      Pressed as to whether she thought there was a link between the Russian fires and the flood in Pakistan, Clinton, channeling Al Gore, said: “Not a direct link. But when you have the changes in climate that affect weather that we’re now seeing, I think the predictions of more natural disasters are unfortunately being played out.”

        The reporter went to a section where the flooding was still evident. He said only the roads were above the flood waters. People were on the roads so he stopped to interview some of them.

        Right away he was challenged, “What are YOU doing to help us?”

        One comment I thought interesting was, “The US is giving billions to build up Iraq and Afghanistan but we aren’t getting any of that money. We should stop supporting them if they won’t give us money to rebuild here.”

        The only difference is, that he is trying to force us to buy his product by getting government regulations in place via his friends. If he had to depend upon the market (as he is now) he won’t sell the stuff and won’t make any money. When he bought in, he expected that to happen without any difficulty but then some things like the Russian hack of emails screwed him up.

  • J.Michael

    Screw Al Gore, but if you don’t think we effect our climate, your wrong! We just don’t know by how much. There isn’t enough data. Besides, Earth’s climate has changed over history, how do we know the climate isn’t going through another change on it’s own? We should take care of our planet before it takes care of us, because the Earth doesn’t care what lives on it. All this crap is just polititcal BS scare tactics from one side and total denile on the other. Also, we see and know from the past and present that Big Business will destroy the environment and walk away, less so now than in the past,in some countries even more so than America today, but the “small people” have to live in it. The “big people” just laugh and move away and leave the rest to die.

    • 45caliber

      See my note to Stephen above.

    • Ceddy Bear

      Do you have true evidence based, factual data from credible sources to back your claim. Sounds like gloom and doom to me. People really believe in the monsters that they make up in their own minds.

    • Stephen

      I think some other people here should pay better attention to their facts. All the planets in our system are warming. So it is safe to say there is a big change happening. That does not mean we don’t effect our environment or our rape and pillage mentality isn’t contributing to the destruction.
      I understand your need to believe we are powerless ants detached from the unfolding cosmos 45. Don’t have to take any responsibility for your thoughts or action. After all, if nature is part of the divine presence then we couldn’t act like this whether we affected the climate or not.

      • 45caliber

        I believe we should clean up after ourselves. The problem is that many don’t believe in it. But the richer people are more willing to do it because they don’t want to live in it. Visit some affluent middle class neighborhood and then drive through some slum area. Those people didn’t move to the slum area because it was dirty.

        But clean or not, we are still ants to the world and the universe.

        P.S.

        If you REALLY want to see pollution check out places like Yugoslavia, Russia, some places in Africa. You’ll be amazed.

        • vicki

          • 45caliber

        • Claire

          Bluntly speaking, a person can be poor as hell but they can be clean. A person can still keep their bodies, clothes, and mind clean. And they can clean up the place even if they live in a slum. All it takes is hard work if a person wants to do it. As a kid, my family was extremely poor. My stepdad was a tenant farmer. The house we lived in was a 4-room house. We raised everything we ate, canned everything imaginable. Canned goods were all over the house, under the beds, in the closets, and in the cellar. They used to “explode” sometimes with a bang. Our garden was darn near the size of a football field. My two sisters and I took care of the garden. We had apricot, peach and apple trees. We ate wild strawberries, gooseberries, etc. We had an outhouse, no electricity and a cistern for our drinking water. We never heard of e-coli. My Mother made our underwear from flour sacks. She made all our clothes. We went barefoot all summer and only had shoes when school started. We had to walk 2 miles to a country school every morning and two miles back home after school. We went to church and Sunday school every week. We did the washing every Saturday. Hung clothes out to dry even in winter, they would be like boards when we brought them in. I know what it is like to be hungry. I know what it is like to have nothing. We were on ADC back then–Aid for Dependent Children. And the other kids used to torment the heck out of us for being on aid. My Mother taught us girls to speak the truth, not to swear, never to lie and if we got into trouble, we got spanked. I had a lot of respect for my Mother. She did her best for us. She taught us right from wrong, respect, manners and to carry ourselves with dignity even though we were so poor. If I cried because we were poor or when other kids picked on me, she would say–”Claire Jean, hold your head up! You have nothing to be ashamed of.” She taught me to have pride. She was a strong woman. She got a job and went to work when I was around 11 years old. I remember all this very clearly because she took me to a beauty shop for a permanent. My gosh, I know I had the very FIRST AFRO!! It was horrible. Hair sticking out all over like a banshee. I sure cried over this. I thought I was “ruined” for life. When I was in 7th grade, we got electricity, and running water. A bathroom was added on, and we got a telephone. Boy, I gave that phone heck! When I was sophomore in high school we got our first TV. Gads, I thought we were rich! Sorry for the rambling, I have a tendency to do that– I guess my point is that if a person is poor and lives in a slum or whatever, they can still make the “best” out of what appears to be a hopeless situation.

            Claire,

            It sounds as though we had similar childhoods. I too grew up poor. The difference was I didn’t know we were poor because everyone around us was poor too! I think I realized how poor we were when I woke up one Christmas morning and found my old doll sitting under the tree with new cloths on it.! I loved that little doll ! I too had the permanent experience. My aunt was a beautition and took me to her house for two weeks one summer! I came home with hair so curly that you couldn’t get a comb through it! My father was furious ! My grandmother lived with us and she use to sew contrasting pieces on to the bottom of my dresses and skirts so they would fit me in length and I could get some more wear out of them. Daddy use to cut the toes out of my shoes in the summer so I could continue wearing them. He didn’t want me to go bare footed because I was always stepping on bee’s ! We too were brought up to be god fearing people and sharring people. There were times when we had nothing in the house to eat so the neighbor would ask us over to their house for a dinner of creamed eggs on toast ! I loved that ! I went to church every sunday and to this day I don’t remember how I got up in time to go to church because mom and dad weren’t much for going to church. They were believers but just didn’t go to church. That changed later down the road. Anyway I got up every Sunday morning and got dressed and got my little brother dressed and we walked about six blocks to church. I always sat right in the front row and little brother use to ask to sing the song Jeasus Loves Me and I always want to sing The wise man built his house upon the rock ! Those were hard times but for some reason I look back on them with such fond memories ! Mom passed in the 80′s and daddy passed 2003. He was 93 years young. My brother and I both said the same thing at the funeral, we always remembered daddy’s hands and my youngest sister chose that very song to be sung at the service unbeknownst to the rest of us. I asked her why she chose that song and she said because she always thought of daddy’s hands. They were big, strong gentle and comforting to all of us. I wonder if my children will remember their daddys hands the same way? Oh yes they could sure dish out a unforgetable spanking when necessary ! Now I’m an old woman but I still have all the pleasant memories.

        Exactly! All of the planets are warming. Are the people of earth raising the temperature on Saturn or Mars??? The only polution that effects life here is the polution that effects the life here directly like water or soil polution. We have no control on the temperature of the planet. The temperature on earth has cycled since its creation! Now is no different!

    • eddie47d

      So true Michael; We have at least 125 superfund sites in the USA and only a few have recovered.The owners (corporations) are long gone and we pay dearly financially and in health.

      • 45caliber

        Many have not recovered or been cleaned up due to government demands. There is one site in this general area. Upon searching it, the government found one sack with some inert material with Monsanto’s name on it. The material was totally harmless. They tried to get Monsanto to clean up the entire thing at their expense – $350 million dollars worth. Monsanto objected since the only thing found there was inert and harmless. They were willing to pay some but not all.

        The government then informed Monsanto that the law gives the government the right to charge 5 times what the actual cost of cleanup is to a company. Therefore at present, the government has spent close to $50 million without moving a teaspoon of material. They intend to keep doing this. The company that was tagged to clean up the mess is not allowed in to do it. I suspect you’ll find other sites are the same in some areas.

        • eddie47d

          You can be very correct also on that issue. I do not trust Monsanto on their use of GMO’s. In 1972 they owned 6% of all farms that used GMO seeds now it is 90%. They forced farmers to buy their seed or be run out of business. They did this by hiring inspectors (75 at this time)to go on farm land they did not control. If these inspectors found any GMO seed crops that blew in from their fields they would take that farmer to court. They always won because of the court costs and you can’t stop the wind from blowing anything into someone elses field. They won by playing dirty.

Oh and the solar system is getting warmer along with our planet I guess that’s because all those people on the other planets are polluting their atmospheres too!!!! What a crock!

    • 45caliber

      What is the difference between Big Business that says, “all you have to do it buy our product to be happy”, and Big Government that says, “all you have to do is let us tell you what to do to be happy?”

      The main difference is that you have the right to be happy any way you wish with Big Business around including not buying anything from them. But with Big Government you lose ALL your freedoms.

      The real problem is that the liberals can’t see that.

      The way they look at it is that if someone (big government) tells everyone what to do and how to do it, everyone will be happy and equal. Everyone will have everything they want because “Big Brother” will see to it. Except Big Brother is run by someone – and they intend to be the “someone” running everything. They even think it is best they run it because they have this big dream. And since they are taking up the job, they are worth MORE than anyone else and therefore should have more than anyone else – which ruins their entire dream right there of equality.

      • eddie47d

        The “liberals” see plenty and both big government and big business can be an albatross to contend with. That’s the way it has been throughout history. An example: Go back 200 years or so and try and cross a river. Do you travel 300 miles out of your way to get around or pay this business a small fortune to take you to the other side.(both bad choices). Businesses like this deserve a profit but have been gouging folks forever. Remember there was little government if any around to interfere with this unscrupulous business. My point is that people and businesses screw others all the time without government being involved. Governments and business shouldn’t have free rein on anything because they both will shaft you every chance they can get.

        • 45caliber

          Not totally true. Back about 1900 the belief in business was that the workers could be replaced easily. Work them until they are injured or killed and then get someone else. That’s what created the unions. By about 1960, the management belief was that the worker was the most important resource they had – and they were cautious to keep the worker happy which included keeping their costs down. Further, competition was able to keep costs down too. In your example, you have little choice but today there are many choices. If you don’t like to pay the cost for a new car, you can buy someone else’s car. Or make your own. So business has to compete by keeping the prices down or go out of business.

          But today many of the 30-something people moving into management are trying to go back to cheating their workers again. After all, why pay an American $15 an hour to safely make a toy car when you can pay a Mexican or Chinaman $3 an hour and if he gets hurt, kick him out and hire someone else? The reason they can do it is because there isn’t as much competition.

          Why not? If you start a business today, you MUST hire a safety expert and a pollution expert before you can move a spade of dirt. By the time you meet all government requirements, you can no longer compete with the big coops that make stuff in other countries. And you will find that the coops are the ones who encourage a lot of these government regs to prevent competition.

          • eddie47d

            If you have enough money to do so. Most early pioneers or travelers didn’t have the time,money or business savvy to just drop everything and build a barge or whatever. They had a home to build and crops to plant or a very short time to get to where they were going.Their life depended on it and those barge operators knew they could be taken advantage of. It may be allot easier today to pull something off and “get back” at a bad business and show them up.Then again a lawyer from the opposing business can stop a new upstart business before the the first nail goes in. Also, not everyone has the ability to run a business of any size but they can sure see a crook ( sometimes not until after the fact).

        • Granny Mae

          eddie47d,

          Most of the barge owners were in the business of moving people and goods up and down a river. If they took advantage of people it soon became knowledge and they were’t in business very long. My grand father came up the Saginaw river in Michigan on a barge when he first came here from Holland. He and his family made a long trip up river to settle in Bay City. They settled there and used that barg system for many years. So not all people were out to take advantage of everyone.

      • 45caliber

        jim:
        Have you ever seen a weather chamber? They create weather there to see what happens.

        If you take a sealed terrarium (where everything is balanced) and suject it to a little more heat, guess what happens? The water inside evaporates and then condenses, creating a cloud affect that blocks the heat. Any induced heat is absorbed in the system. For instance, a 10 x 10 feet section of grass is equivalent in cooling to a 1 ton AC unit. Add heat and the grass in the terrarium grows to absorb it.

        Take the Gulf oil spill. Bad news, huh? Despite the millions of gallons of oil, it is basically the equivalent of one small drop of oil in a bathtub full of water. On a world-wide scale, that isn’t much.

        • Claire

          I think we should take care of the earth and its resources. If a stinking mess is made, clean it up like it should be cleaned up. And I refer to this uncalled-for oil spill. If and when we drill again, I hope the people involved use their damn brains. That is all it takes–brains and common sense, and quit being so damn greedy about money. A person sure can’t take it with them when they die. Take the time and effort to do a job correctly.
          I will tell you what sickens me–when I go to the mall, pull into the parking lot and see filthy diapers on the ground. Now I ask this–are people so gosh damn lazy that they cannot put these diapers in a garbage can? These people have other kids that see what they are doing. The dirty people that toss the refuse in the street after they have been to Hardys, McDonalds, etc. The lazy people that don’t put up a shopping cart at the grocery store and these carts hit parked cars. The dirty people that leave garbage all over the public parks. This is what I think–I think some people have become so damn lazy and they sure as heck don’t care about the environment. I wonder what their homes look like. I have 8 dogs and I bust my ass keeping everything clean. I have them in 2 bedrooms at night-these rooms look like day care. I pick up the doodoo 4-5 times a day. I wash their bedding every 2 days. I bathe all of them on a monthly basis. I keep their nails trimmed and their ears and teeth clean. Whoops, sorry, I had better stop patting myself on the back. But geez, it doesn’t take that much effort to pick up after yourself. Don’t they care about anything?

          • kate8

            I hear ya, Claire. The dirty diaper thing – I’ve seen it in the parking lots, too. Yuch. Some people just don’t care.

            Yes, we should always be good stewards of the Earth. We should be responsible. It goes to striving for excellence in all things. Like putting things back where they belong, being courteous of our neighbors, keeping our space clean and loved.

            I just don’t get the “don’t give a cr*p” attitude, either. You know, the Golden Rule and all. Does anyone even know what that is anymore, I wonder.

          • Claire

            Boy did you ever hit the nail on the head this time. I have experienced the same thing and it is the worst thing I can think of ! When My kids were little I traveled from the east coast to the west coast and back again and one of my babies was in diapers and never one time would I dream of doing such a thing. There is no call for that and it is disgusting !

          • Claire

            Granny Mae–What bothers me is the attitude of these mothers that throw these dirty diapers on the street. What has this world become? What are they thinking? Don’t they have any respect for anything? What are these mothers teaching their kids? No wonder some kids are the way they are. Granted, not all kids are bad, but there sure is a bumper crop of them out there right now that leave a lot to be desired. Can you imagine them running the country 20 years from now?

  • Joe R.

    I thought that Al (it is getting too hot and I invented the internet0 Gore was gone and forgotten. Global warming is so much BS and that jerko knows it. Does he not know that his “carbon footprint” equals that of a large town. He lives in a glass house and he is throwing stones.

    • 45caliber

      He bought all that stock in the companies that can make equipment to absorb CO2. Now he can’t sell it for any profit unless he can convince people the equipment in needed. And if he does that he stands to make billions. I’m not surprised he is still pushing it!

  • David J. Sanchez

    Gore goes around the world making money on this man-caused global warming crisis, and for all we know this could be incipient stages of the next ice age which is due every 10,000 years. If the people cannot see through this scam with all the information we have on hand by now—I give up!! He lost the election years ago and found a great way of scaring people by making a movie and now he reaps the profits hand over fist, and doesn’t care if the economy will go completely out of wack, impoverishing millions of hardworking Americans in the process. He is a most callous individual and deserves to be “prosecuted” for being an uncaring self-centered,selfish slob. Hopefully with an educated electorate we can begin to right the state of the “American-ship” this Fall 2010. Sincerely, Dave S.

    Interesting comments, I agree Gore is motivated by greed as is a lot of his supporters most of whom will profit from tax credit trades (along with Al.). As to climate change unless man figures out how to change the laws of physics climate change will continue to be cyclic. The next several thousands of years will probably be quite radical if you can believe indications from the past and man’s survival will probably depend more on his ability to adapt than to changing his carbon footprint.

  • Wild-Turkey

    Al Gore did not invent the internet, however, he did make up global warming.

  • alpha-lemming

    Just some facts to keep things interesting.

    Human activity IS affecting the climate….. insignificantly. The progs favorite claim that the global temperature will rise 30 degrees over the next century?? Just for yucks, we’ll stipulate they’re right. If all human life were extinguished on the planet today… global temperature would STILL go up 29.7 degrees over the next century. So cap and trade efficiency can actually be measured…. as trillions of dollars per tenth of a degree. Doesn’t sound like a good investment to me, but… maybe I’ll learn to love the planet more some day.

    The global climate has been UNUSUALLY stable for about 10,000 years (yeah… I know… Bush did it). Contrary to popular belief, they think it’s due to the “deep-ocean conveyor belt” and NOT SUVs. I think it still might be SUVs but I’m willing to hear them out.

    The most prevalent green-house gas on the planet (no…. not progressives) is “hydrogen oxide”. It swamps all other contributers combined. Couple that with the fact that accidental spills of this toxin is responsible for millions of deaths. On particularly nasty hydrogen oxide chemical spill in Indonesia (10-15 years ago) was responsible for almost 500,000 deaths!! As good stewards of the planet, you MUST control or ELIMINATE this scourge and stop “fiddling around the edges” with minor players like fossile fuels and CO2. Hydrogen oxide WILL be the death of the Earth unless Al Gore starts giving it the attention it deserves and can rid us of our un-healthy addiction to this poison. AL!!!!!!! DO SOMETHING!!!!!! SAVE US FROM OURSELVES!!!!!!

    • 45caliber

      You are certainly correct about the dangers of hydrogen oxide. Further, it has very strange chemical properties. It is a fantastic heat absorber. It corrodes almost everything it touches. It has a very narrow range of the liquid phase. And the solid form is actually lighter than the liquid form! I believe several hundred thousand Pakistanis are dead now due to a spill of it there recently. And even in the US it isn’t uncommon to have several thousand people a year die due to exposure to it.

    • vicki

      Gentlemen, Please. The correct name is DiHydrogen Monoxide. It is one of the most dangerous greenhouse gases known.

          Foreign countries are far more reckless with chemicals than we are. Indonesia uses Zeolite (silicic acid,aluminum oxide,ironoxide) on all their golf courses.They even drain the lakes on these courses and coat it with this product. Asthma is way up with anyone working or living near these courses. DiHydrogen Oxide is also widely used.Zeolite is used to harden the surface so the rain drains off but so much drains off that other water sources are effected.

      • alpha-lemming

        Not to beat this horse more than’s already been done, but I believe “hydrogen oxide” is perfectly acceptable nomenclature. Differentiated from “hydroxide” (alkalai radical… electron reciever) or “dioxides” and “peroxides” (mutiple oxygens)…. tells you everything you need to know about the elemental make-up/configuration.

        • Vicki

          As someone else said I was being picky. Hydrogen oxide is an acceptable common name for it. Mostly it is used as a solvent. It readily mixes with many other compounds. It is sometimes used as a hydrolic(sp) fluid especially in nature. As I remember its specific gravity is 1.00 and a ph of 7.00

    You Fright Wingers are so stupid you cannot tell the difference between “climate” and “weather”—-and your children and grandchildren will hate you for being so greedy and myopic.

    Look at it this way: You do not feel well, so you go to your doctor. Your doctor tells you that you have a terrible illness and that the only treatment, though expensive and time-consuming, is the only thing that can save your life. Not wanting to take the only cure available, you search out a second opinion. The second doctor tells you the same thing the first did and wonders what you are waiting for. You decide to seek a third opinion. Same diagnosis.

    You try a fourth opinion, then a fifth, sixth, seventh……all the way to the ONE HUNDREDTH doctor you speak to, and she tells you that it is nothing, not to worry, it will pass. So that opinion, the most pleasant to your ears, is the one you go with. And then you die.

    You people ignore the overwhelming evidence that the burning of fossil fuels is destroying the climate that protects us, and latch onto the moronic one per cent of scientists who believe your hogwash. Idiots!

    • DaveH

      What evidence, Alex? You mean the computer models that they have to add fudge factors to in order to bring them in line with the actual temperature readings each year? You mean the hockey stick graph that conveniently leaves out the bands of error, and ignores the fact that Russia neglected most of their Siberian temperature stations in the mid-80s so the data from some of the coldest areas in the world was not reported? This was due to their economic collapse which ignorant Liberals want to repeat here.
      The “Science” of Homogenic Global Warming was never really Science, rather it was a political football which Alternative energy investors hoped would enable them to get rich. And the Liberals saw it as a way to force their uneconomic Alternative energies on an unwilling populace. Why does everything Liberals advocate need to be forced on the Citizens? If they were indeed valid ideas, the people would accept them willingly.
      Apparently, Alex, you missed the train. Even the rabid Democrats couldn’t convince the citizens that Homogenic Global Warming was the real deal:

      Al Sieber,

    There is no such thing as global warming..which is really just about giving more control over your lives to these corrupt sob’s in office.There is however global warning…God speaks through His creation…He is not happy with mankind turning away from Him as we rebuild the tower of babble on a global scale..immorality,abuse of nature and the laws of nature(unnatural science)etc..maybe Gore should put down his green magazine and try reading scripture and see that whats happening to the planet has been prophesied,it’s really just a matter of history repeating itself in biblical proportions.the godless refuse to look ,learn and listen..they don’t believe so they can not see or hear…we are being led by the blind.

    • eddie47d

      Who are you to say which science is unnatural? We wouldn’t be this far advanced as humans if it weren’t for the advancement of science. Who’s to say that abuse of nature you mentioned isn’t coming to us in the form of global warming. No matter what, God will be pissed!

    Any moron that buys into global warming,either lives in a controlled enviorment or lives under the ground or up Forrest Gore’s rear vent. Cap and trade being promoted by the marxist democrats and globalist UN is a good reason to never give over our soveriegnity to the blue helmets and their idoit Sec. of the UN. It is a farce and any pee brain thinking that man kind can change the weather is really past being stupid. The media beleif of a static pattern of weather, it
    never happens and never will. Check out Time magazines in 1978 when we would all live like eskimos, and in under the ice sheets,according to the overeducated theorists from the eleit colleges and brain works groups. How did they f–k up? They go to schools and college non stop and never do a damn thing constructie or productive in life. Just like the marxist muslim overeducate moronic idoit in the WH.

    As the economy continues to speedily assume room temperature under the assault of Obamnomics, economic algermortis has already set in. Al Gore mortis cannot be far behind with Cap-n-Tax leading the eco-totalitarian scheme to destroy the American economy. I keep thinking we should test greens by parachuting them into the Amazon Basin with nothing but a loin cloth and a sharp piece of flint so they can prove up the benefits of becoming “one” with nature. The truth is, these people do not really believe all the green nonsense. No, Green Power (with the emphasis on “Power”) is their ticket to living like oriental despots at the expense of We the People. Remember this truth about the Left:

    The issues are never the issue, the ISSUE is always POWER.

    Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, and Obama MUST go! Not to mention a long list of others as well. Do they really think Americans are this dumb? Talk about beating a dead horse. We ALL know Global Warming is a crock of s***! Remember what your parents told you… birds of a feather flock together. Hope these two crows find some “tainted” meat to eat.
