The Problems with Al Gore

The Problems with Al Gore

From the LA Times: "Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito(CA)-area property to their real estate holdings. The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms(see pictures above, and view more here)."

AlGore's demagoguery is plain for all thinking people to see. His masterful piece of fiction, An Inconvenient Truth, won an Academy Award as a documentary in a Hollywood filled with vacuous minds that were still upset that their choice had lost to George W. Bush. I suppose that the Oscar was their way of compensating the one they believed should have been president. Be that as it may, we know now that his film should have been entitled A Very Convenient Lie as is amply demonstrated by his recent purchase of a $9 million mansion the Pacific Ocean's edge. You know, one of the oceans that he told us would be rising and flooding all coastal areas around the world and making Manhattan a modern Venice. His goal was to ignite the unthinking base of the left into supporting Cap & Trade, a program falsely described as a way to save the world but in actuality a program to make AlGore and his allies in the ruling liberal elite the über rich ruling liberal elite. After all, what is the use of going into politics if not to make money, right?

AlGore's arrogant refusal to debate the issue of Anthropogenic Global Warming/Climate Change (AGW/CC) is proof enough that the theory is a fraud. President Obama, looking the nation in the eye with his chin and nose in the air also arrogantly declared that AGW/CC to be fact and closed to further debate; but that declaration was from a man who is a proven liar and cannot be trusted to tell the people the truth about anything. (Could it be that the major carbon trading company in the United States is located in Chicago have anything to do with his statement? I wonder?) Unfortunately for both AlGore and Obama, Mother Nature has also weighed in on the debate and proven them both to be fools and liars as if to underscore the fraud that was uncovered at East Anglia in the way they were manipulating the data to show that non-existant AGW/CC was real. Real scientists know that the failure to empirically question results through open debate and proven methods means that the results are not science but science fiction and that's what we are dealing with now.

Thanks to the heavy-handed liberal-progressive-socialist Democrats in power the EPA has declared that carbon dioxide is a poisonous gas which must be controlled. That means, I suppose, that there will be limits on how much each person can exhale and the only bright side to the EPA's asinine overextension of their power would be if it served to shut-up the politicians in Washington. Of course, that's too much to hope for because they will surely exempt themselves from the law. But the actual effect of the EPA's action will be to add taxes to the production of energy which will, of course, be passed on to We the People. I know this is hard for many on the left to understand because it is pretty advanced economics that is only taught at the high school level but when you tax a corporation that tax is passed on to the consumer because it is a cost of doing business. So Cap & Trade, which is basically taxation by another name (a more accurate name might be Cap & Theft) will raise the energy costs to all of We the People.

Fine, you say? You're willing to pay more to heat and light your house and drive your car? Well, ok. You can take that approach if you want but you should think it through. If you're paying more for energy, so are the corporations who produce the other things that you use. Things like food, water, clothing, medicine (yes, I know that bill goes to the Government but where will the Government get the money?) and everything else that we must use on a daily basis. It won't be just your power and gas bill that goes up. All your bills will go up. Way, way up. About the only people who won't feel the effects of such a law are the Amish and those few in Appalachia who live off their own farms and through trading and still don't have electricity or running water and to whom a vehicle driving by is a major event. The rest of We the People will see our lives reduced to a level of poverty that hasn't been seen in modern America because modern America has never been this much under the thumb of radical socialists before. The ruling elite won't suffer, however, because they will control the carbon credits and the profits will go to them.

Remember, it's never really been about the climate.  It's really about money (yours and mine) and political power (theirs).  That's why this coming November is so important.
