Al Gore… Meet the Protesters

Posted by courage On November - 15 - 2009

Earth

During a speech based on his wildly factious movie, Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore finds protesters outside who are not “all square” with his pseudoscience on climate change.

As one protester points out in the interview, “following the money.”  Indeed follow the money, Gore has become a multi-millionaire through his efforts to sound an alarm over “climate change.”  Oh wait those words have been scrubbed since it can definitely be said that the climate does change, Orwellian speak is now “environmental justice.”  For additional information on this bad science see links on toolbar for Cap and Trade.

Now back to the money..

From Newsbusters:

In fact, just two months ago, ABC News.com estimated soon-to-be-Nobel Laureate Al Gore’s net worth at $100 million, which isn’t bad considering that he was supposedly worth about $1 million when he watched George W. Bush get sworn in as president in January 2001.

Talk about your get-rich-quick schemes, how’d you like to increase your net worth 10,000 percent in less than seven years?

Fortunately for the world’s foremost warm-monger -….

Yes and even more recently, from The Wall Street Journal:

WASHINGTON — A tiny car company backed by former Vice President Al Gore has just gotten a $529 million U.S. government loan to help build a hybrid sports car in Finland that will sell for about $89,000. (emphasis mine)

I’m still trying to figure out why we are lending money to a foreign car company when we already own two.

Clip of the protest can be found here on this link at BreitBar TV.

At the end the reporter makes what sounds as though it is an altruistic motion by Gore and the funds raised by the event.  She told everyone that the money raised from the event goes to the “Non-profit Alliance for Climate Protection fund.”  Now doesn’t that make you feel all warm and cozy, knowing our former VP is donating all this money he raised?  Curious as I am, I checked out the Alliance for Climate .  Surprise, surprise… when I went to the site I was met by a humongous picture of a pale Al Gore.  Digging further on the organization I found this:

The Alliance for Climate Protection is an organization founded in the United States in 2006 aiming to “persuade people of the importance, urgency and feasibility of adopting and implementing effective and comprehensive solutions for the climate crisis”.[1] The founder and current chairman of the alliance is former US Vice President Al Gore.[1]

And what does his organization promote… the very tenets that make up the Cap and Trade legislation which passed the House.  Just saying as founder and chairman I somehow think that old Al gets a hunk of that money in way of salary, transportation on private green flying machine he travels in and from all appearance gets his meals paid for also.


What’s On Your Mind.. Open Thread Sunday

Posted by courage On November - 15 - 2009

question mark Over the last ten months, I have been continually   amazed by the actions of the Administration.  Calls to address “crisis” after crisis have been met with swift legislation that our elected officials do not even bother to read, let alone consider the implications their actions have on citizens of this country.  There are numerous concerns regarding the constitutionality of the Federal Government taking over industries.  Some would call this Socialism, I prefer calling it Fascism, where the government controls corporations in the background while offering the appearance of a free market.

We have a President who has either NO understanding of diplomatic protocol as he continually bows to leaders from other countries or wishes to place the United States in a subservient position to the world.

Yesterday Obama  announced that the terrorist mastermind of September 11th, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will be sent to New York City for a criminal trial in a civilian court.

In that trial, the terrorist will get all the rights afforded an American citizen in a criminal trial, including the right to a fair trial, the right to a taxpayer funded attorney, the right to review all the evidence against him, potentially including classified intelligence matters, the right to exclude evidence against him including, potentially, any confession obtained through enhanced interrogation techniques, etc.

Jihad Virus Continues to Strike the United States

Posted by courage On November - 9 - 2009

With disbelief most Americans were stunned on Thursday as news of the Fort Hood massacre was reported.  We sat individually on our couches and drove alone our car as slowly the horrendous tale began to unfold.  Alone we may have been in our existence but the psyche and sadness we each experienced was the shared psychic energy of Americans who understood that terrorists were amongst us.  Fox news reported with hours of this disaster that an FBI spokesman said, “This is not a terrorist attack.”  My mind immediately asked the question, “How can you know that?”

The Financial Meltdown

Posted by courage On November - 9 - 2009

I am  tired and I am sure as are some of the readers of this blog, of the misinformation individual’s spout regarding the cause of the current meltdown.  The crisis started in the housing market, which was weakened beyond comprehension by our inept and foolish Congress.  From now on whenever someone starts to deny or misstate the problem send them here.. let them get some education and then get back to you with knowledge instead of lame, weak Democratic talking points.  Without further ado…

G.W. and Laura Bush Visit Fort Hood

Posted by courage On November - 7 - 2009

No camera’s, no teleprompters, no throngs of tingly legged journalists kneeling in admiration, just a former President doing what he felt was right.

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) ― Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, visited wounded soldiers and their families near the site of the worst mass shooting on an Army post in the United States.

The Bushes made their private visit to Fort Hood’s Darnall Army Medical Center on Friday night. Bush spokesman David Sherzer said in an e-mail that the couple thanked Fort Hood’s military leaders and hospital staff for the “amazing care they are providing.”
