REALLY STUPID! Did Gore make his money from bankrupting companies like Dade International and destroying workers lives like Romney did? No.
You're an idiot Carol!
No, he made his money fudging scientific evidence to prove liberals will believe anything - especially his malarkey about carbon footprints while leaving his own everywhere he went - and then made a mint selling his low-rated news channel to Al Jazeera, a network where anti-Semitism is woven into its fabric of reporting.

More businesses are successful because of Romney taking the risks than the few that would have gone bankrupt anyway.

More people have jobs because of Romney taking the risks than the ones who would have found themselves jobless anyway.

What does Al Gore have to show for his Romney-like prosperity?

You are correct. I am a conservative. I will admit I am a hypocrite. Let us see;
- I could care less what consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms, but I am anti gay/lesbian marriage
- I am against abortion/murder but I understand it in the case of rape incest or if the the mother's health is in danger
- I respect the presidency but I have no respect for our current president nobama and/or his policies
- I respect our military even thou I know there are some bad apples serving, same with the police
- A persons color/race are of no importance, it is what the person does, work, pay taxes, take care of his obligations

No wonder you voted for Obama twice. You really are a brainwashed useful idiot.
Someone had to tell Susan Rice to go on five television shows and blame a video. Obama and Hillary then continued to blamed it on a video.
But EVERYONE - and I mean EVERYONE - except you and other brainwashed useful idiots - knows that Obama and Hillary knew it was a terrorist attack the same night it happened.
So someone made the decision to remove any link to terrorists or terrorism in the talking points from the CIA reports which have long since been publicized and well-documented. Try and figure out who would have been the most obvious person to make that kind of decision - and why.
Heaven help us if there are too many more like you. Seriously.
It's complacent and blind loyalists like yourself who present the biggest danger - not those who you elected.
One more time Carol, stop flogging that dead horse! No one ever denied it was a terrorist attack. The motivation behind it is irrelevant. Why are you such a goddamned liar?

Carol, you're the last person in the world to be commenting on someone's intelligence as this post proves beyond all doubt that you are one of the most abysmally stupid people on this thread. George W Bush was warned during the first of his 77 visits to his faux ranch that an attack on US soil was imminent and what did he do? NOTHING! He stayed there another week. He could have gone back to Washington and set fire under some asses and found out that there were FBI reports of suspicious students at flight schools around the nation and prevented the attacks. Did he do that? NO! Because there was more brush to cut.
You're a complete idiot Carol!
Shut the hell up, you dumb cluck.

Bill Clinton built that wall between the FBI and the CIA to save his ass from being caught taking donations from the Chinese.

Why the hell didn't Bill Clinton know what George Bush was supposed to know when the plot was underway for five years - the entire second term of Clinton's watch - and Bush was only 8 months into the job??

Now zip it. You're being a pest.

Swearing gives a bad impression about you PDUPONT.

It makes you unpleasant to be with or around, reflects ignorance, a tool for you whiners and complainers with a bad attitude who don't have control...

Swearing turns your discussions into arguments, a sign of deranged hostility and leads to violence PDUPONT...

You do lack imagination and education PDUPONT, using your lazy language you can't communicate clearly and it discloses your lack of character...

Al Gore buys his carbon off-sets credits from himself--the Generation Investment Management LLP, "an independent, private, owner-managed partnership established in 2004 with offices in London and Washington, D.C." of which he is both chairman and founding partner you idiot.

I told you to zip it.

They lied through their collective teeth about that stupid video for days and even weeks. Obama was the last one after Hillary and Panetta to finally admit it was a terrorist attack. It was two weeks later and after he stood in front of the UN still blaming that stupid video.

Now shut the hell up. Go light some incense on your Obama altar and chant or something.

At least Bush's Ranch is greener then Al Gore's Mansion. The Pasminco Zinc Mine, is situated on Gore's plantation...

The "Pasminco Zinc Mine" owned by the Gore family and is situated in the middle of Al Gore's plantation...

How about covering the Empire State Building with solar panels, with virtually no impact to the environment/

Win-win

Of course, Galt sees an immediate problem with urban solar problems...difficult for the sunshine to penetrate the graffiti.

But, yes, NIMBY, that's why you people want to destroy the desert instead of your urban paradises.

Remember the wind power facilities off Hyannisport killed by the Kennedys?

http://cironline.org/reports/license-plate-re...

When the city of San Leandro, Calif., purchased a license-plate reader for its police department in 2008, computer security consultant Michael Katz-Lacabe asked the city for a record of every time the scanners had photographed his car.

The results shocked him.

The paperback-size device, installed on the outside of police cars, can log thousands of license plates in an eight-hour patrol shift. Katz-Lacabe said it had photographed his two cars on 112 occasions, including one image from 2009 that shows him and his daughters stepping out of his Toyota Prius in their driveway.

That photograph, Katz-Lacabe said, made him “frightened and concerned about the magnitude of police surveillance and data collection.” The single patrol car in San Leandro equipped with a plate reader had logged his car once a week on average, photographing his license plate and documenting the time and location.

At a rapid pace, and mostly hidden from the public, police agencies throughout California have been collecting millions of records on drivers and feeding them to intelligence fusion centers operated by local, state and federal law enforcement.

With heightened concern over secret intelligence operations at the National Security Agency, the localized effort to track drivers highlights the extent to which the government has committed to collecting large amounts of data on people who have done nothing wrong.

A year ago, the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center – one of dozens of law enforcement intelligence-sharing centers set up after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 – signed a $340,000 agreement with the Silicon Valley firm Palantir to construct a database of license-plate records flowing in from police using the devices across 14 counties, documents and interviews show.

The extent of the center’s data collection has never been revealed. Neither has the involvement of Palantir, a Silicon Valley firm with extensive ties to the Pentagon and intelligence agencies. The CIA’s venture capital fund, In-Q-Tel, has invested $2 million in the firm.

The jurisdictions supplying license-plate data to the intelligence center stretch from Monterey County to the Oregon border. According to contract documents, the database will be capable of handling at least 100 million records and be accessible to local and state law enforcement across the region.

Law enforcement agencies throughout Northern California will be able to access the data, as will state and federal authorities.

In the Bay Area, at least 32 government agencies use license-plate readers. The city of Piedmont decided to install them along the border with Oakland, and the Marin County enclave of Tiburon placed plate scanners and cameras on two roads leading into and out of town.

Law enforcement agencies throughout the region also have adopted the technology. Police in Daly City, Milpitas and San Francisco have signed agreements to provide data from plate readers to the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center. A Piedmont document indicates that city is also participating, along with Oakland, Walnut Creek, Alameda and the California Highway Patrol.

Katz-Lacabe, who was featured in a Wall Street Journal story last year, said he believes the records of his movements are too revealing for someone who has done nothing wrong. With the technology, he said,“you can tell who your friends are, who you hang out with, where you go to church, whether you’ve been to a political meeting.”

Lt. Randall Brandt of the San Leandro police said,“It’s new technology, we’re learning as we go, but it works 100 times better than driving around looking for license plates with our eyes.”

The intelligence center database will store license-plate records for up to two years, regardless of data retention limits set by local police departments.

Senator Barry Goldwater (R-Arizona), running for the Republican Party nomination in the upcoming presidential election, gives an interview in which he discusses the use of low-yield atomic bombs in North Vietnam to defoliate forests and destroy bridges, roads, and railroad lines bringing supplies from communist China. During the storm of criticism that followed, Goldwater tried to back away from these drastic actions, claiming that he did not mean to advocate the use of atomic bombs but was "repeating a suggestion made by competent military people." Democrats painted Goldwater as a warmonger who was overly eager to use nuclear weapons in Vietnam. Though he won his party's nomination, Goldwater was never able to shake his image as an extremist in Vietnam policies. This image was a key factor in his crushing defeat by opponent Lyndon B. Johnson, who took about 61 percent of the vote to Goldwater's 39 percent.
