Al Gore lives his beliefs

Don't your DARE do this to me!

Don’t your DARE do this to me!

You’d think that as the world’s expert on global warming the man would cheer on those who want to shut down the world’s economy and stop further production of CO2, so it is at first blush confusing that he’s so angry about it instead. Here he is just a few days ago:

“Why does partisanship have anything to do with such a despicable and dishonorable threat to the integrity of the United States of America?  It cannot be allowed. But it can only be stopped if people in both parties independents as well say, ‘look, I might not agree with everything that’s in the Affordable Care Act, but it did pass, it was upheld by the Supreme Court, it is the law of the land. You didn’t succeed in the constitutional process by which this was considered, and now you want to threaten to not only shut down our government, but blow up the world economy?….How dare you! How dare you!”

But no, his anger is really just proof that he truly believes what he’s been saying since 2006, when he promised that the world would cross an irreversible barrier in 2016 if we didn’t stop our wicked ways. Irreversible means it can’t be undone, and now, eight years on from his science is settled pronouncement, it’s obvious that nothing has been done or can be done in the next 24 months to avoid terminal catastrophe. It’s over, baby.

So no wonder the guy’s pissed: he wants to spend the declining days of the earth in the luxury to which he’s become accustomed to since discovering the profitability of Cassandraism, and anything that threatens his 110′ houseboats, his private jets and his 15,000 sq.ft. mansions on both coasts is really, really inconvenient. Shut down the world’s economy just as he’s clawed, kicked and bitten his way to the top? As he says, “how dare you!”

The man’s put his mouth where his money is, and you have to admire a politician like that.

    Just because an Act becomes a Law does not mean all are obliged to cease resistence to it. When the Kansas-Nebraksa Act allowing for the extention of slavery became law in 1854, Lincoln voiced his opposition to the law, and campaigned to repeal it. He ran for the Senate twice on a Repeal Platform, and lost both times, but it kept at it. Although not as crucial, opposition to Obamacare is no less principled. Gore is a fool.

    Ironic that the current occupant of the OO has deemed fit to just ignore laws that don’t fit his ideology, to wit the change in the work requirements for welfare that were explicitly set out in 1990’s legislation signed by Clinton; the federal implementation of parts of the Dream Act that had not made it through both house of Congress; ignoring the recent SCOTUS opinion n the Voting Rights Act; creating an exemption in the ACA for government workers so that they are not required to get health care from the exchanges that are good enough for the on-political class even though it was expressly in the ACA bill; recess appointments slapped down by the courts in particular the NLRB which has completely ignored the courts ruling and is still bringing enforcement actions….

    I could continue but it would take up a lot of space…..

    I still think that image looks like he’s trying to squeeze out a watermelon sized turd. And he is, it’s called AGW.

      Gee, thanks for the mental picture that conjured up. (Accurate, but gross.) Guess the kale isn’t working…

    AG is seriously mentally ill. Few families in American history have profited as much from government as the Gore family to the detriment of the nation.

    From saying that he was Oliver in Love Story to the lie that his father was defeated because he championed civil rights to inventing the internet and pushing ethanol. Now he spends his time apparently fomenting hate and exposing himself.

    Gore sat on a panel with Bill Clinton last week at the Clinton Global Initiative ‘summit’. It was more difficult to watch these two men squirm in each other’s presence than seeing a Miss America contestant drop a twirling baton. Gore was uncomfortable, even to the point of making an inappropriate remark when they all went to sit down. Clinton wondered who the hell sent Gore an invite.

    Clinton is equally ill, maybe not a pathological liar like Gore, but ill in the narcissistic sense. He can’t pass up any opportunity to be on screen and tell the world what he thinks is right.

    • i saw the video with Bill and Al yesterday and it was yet another example where it doesn’t appear that Bill is all there. he can’t seem to finish a sentence and is only helped out by later editing of the interview:

    • EOS-
      quick question: since we should embrace Twitter, how do you embed a single tweet in the comments here? i tried yesterday and couldn’t figure out the http//: address of the tweet and just used the embed code and it looked lame. Thx! in advance.

      • EOSredux

        Hmmmm. I just do a regular cut and paste and it works. Here’s one of my Tweets from today, a funny one actually.

        In line to pay Property Tax bill; man in front of me said “just what IS this bill I’m paying”? #hardtobelieve

        There is an embed code option for each Tweet but I sprung from the world of DOS so I think more old school, Copy C. Paste V. If the Tweet has a photo, I copy the twitpic link and post. Like this: It should appear in the comment, just like a YT video does.
