What many fail to grasp is minimum wage jobs are subsidized by the government in the form of food stamps etc. No one could survive on minimum wage alonne.

Minimum wage. Anyone guess the original concept?
Never meant to be a living wage. It was meant to be an entry level job where you could acquire a skill, start to earn and save, you know...those 'old white guy' ideas.
Now thanks to liberal Democrats, we're supposed to feel good when people's highest aspirations culminate in their 40 years of service as a McDonald's drive-through employee.
I miss the days of the 'old white guys' and their silly ideas of hard work, skill and success.
This country and this President are a joke. Obama can tell absolute lies and everyone still calls him the smartest guy in the room. I guess compared to the rest of the people who voted for him, that's at least accurate.

If Al Gore had won, for starters: Had Gore been briefed by intelligence officers as Bush was in August 2001 about terrorist planes attacking buildings, Gore would have put our services on red alert and might well have prevented 9/11.

Even if 9/11 had happened: Gore would never have made the blunder of invading Iraq. Those American lives of troops KIA would have been saved. He would have focused on Afghanistan, which would have been won for keeps most likely by 2003. Many American lives of troops KIA in Afghanistan would also have been saved and our Afghan mission would have ended successfully long ago.

Gore would never have done the Bush tax cuts. Therefore, many trillions of dollars would have been saved from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and from not doing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
A C-5 full of $100 bills on pallets disappeared in Iraq.
Nothing signifies my legacy better than that.
I have no doubt that my aim when I appointed myself Prime Minister was to steal somewhere between an eighth and a quarter trillion dollars. Just steal it. Pulling trailer trucks pulling up at the loading docks of the NSA or CIA HQs and pulling billions of cash out for distribution to me and my cronies.

Had I been able to steal the election in 2000, this country would have experienced Obama before Obama. As far as security, all the groundwork for 9-11 was laid under the administration I served. My boss bombed an aspirin factory. We were constantly attacked overseas at our embassies. My boss had Bin Laden and let him go. I could go on and on. Thankfully you were spared 4 years of hell from me until Obama has come in to finish the work we started. I hate America just as much as Obama, and wish it were me getting credit for all the damage.

Who’s Worse — Al Gore or Bernie Madoff?

January 10th, 2013 - 12:00 am

Forgotten or semi-forgotten in the hullabaloo over Al Gore netting a cool hundred million from the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera is that back in 2009 the ex-veep was on his way to being the first carbon billionaire off global warming.

It’s unclear how close he came to accomplishing that goal, but it’s a safe bet he didn’t do badly, considering his lifestyle.(Well, this house apparently went to Tipper in the breakup.)

Whatever else he is, Gore is arguably a business genius when it comes to generating massive amounts of income from dubious enterprises and, unlike Bernie Madoff, getting away with it.

Okay, Current TV wasn’t completely a scam. It was just a boring television network that hardly anybody wanted to watch. Nevertheless, when Gore and his partners sold it to Al Jazeera for 500 million they were selling the network (and its U.S. bandwidth) to a company owned by the state of Qatar, a country that derives fifty percent of its income from the one thing Al Gore supposedly most reviles — fossil fuels. Not only that, Al Jazeera, especially in its Arabic broadcasts, excuses al-Qaeda and consistently supports Sharia law and its consequent extreme misogyny and homophobia. And, of course, opposes the separation of church and state. How very “progressive”!

If, in the words of La Rochefoucauld,“Hypocrisy is the homage that vice pays to virtue,” then Gore is one of the greatest “homageurs” or all time.

But does he deserve to be compared to the felonious Madoff? Well, consider this: Bernie Madoff undoubtedly did not set out to bilk a number of rich people, not to mention several not so rich and also some charities, out of their savings. He probably thought his great financial expertise was going to make them all a lot of money. It is only when his expertise deserted him, that he went down the road to perdition, failing to notify his clients of impending economic disaster, robbing Peter to pay Paul, while pretending all was well.

Gore is oddly similar. Years ago, he undoubtedly believed anthropogenic global warming was taking us to planetary armageddon.(Ironically, he had much less right to his conclusions than Madoff, because Gore was less of an expert in his field by considerable degrees. In fact, he was a failure in science as an undergraduate and had to rely entirely on the opinions of others, scientists who had everything to gain from the subvention of the global warming industry.)

When revelations like the Climategate emails appeared, Gore ignored or derided them. After all, by that point, he was deeply involved in setting up carbon exchanges in Europe and the USA. Billions of dollars were involved and international policies at play that would cost billions, even trillions, more while dominating and distorting the global economy. These numbers made Madoff seem trivial.

The recent dispute over the latest warming figures from the British MET office make the commitment of sums of this titanic size seem like a form of mega-theft from global (largely American, one assumes) taxpayers.

And yet that is what Al Gore wanted.

He has been on the wrong side of everything — first making AGW into a phony catastrophe and now introducing the mouthpiece of Sharia into American homes, while personally gaining hundreds of millions in the process.

What a guy.

Gore always wrapped his insatiable desire for vast wealth in this climate scam, claiming that he was only doing it to save the planet. The mere fact that he was making about a billion dollars in the process was beside the point. He was due this money because he was unselfishly “saving the planet,” don’t ch’ya know.

Worse, he was pushing a political climate control carbon tax agenda that would impoverish large nations to give money to smaller nations, the ultimate act of redistribution of wealth being forced on people (which is ironic coming from a rabid capitalist like Gore). It is socialism on a global scale, since the money would be forcibly obtained from larger countries through onerous global carbon taxes. Taxes, by the way, Gore stood to make a fortune off of since his group of “investors” controlled a lot of the carbon credits that were being offered for sale at the time. Gore stood to make a fortune, all under the guise of “saving the planet.”

Gore is a hideous man and it seems incredible that he came so close to being president. Seems only right that the same political party that gave you this lowlife also gave us moral midgets like John Edwards, Bill Clinton, and Obama. Republicans should make much more out of this corruption, just like Obama’s “green initiatives” that give millions of dollars to corrupt companies like Solyndra and Fisker. The Democrats really should be held accountable for this.

Here’s another thing most people don’t know about good ol’ Al: He’s filthy rich from oil money because of his father. Armand Hammer (much beloved of Stalin, incidentally) of Occidental used to brag that he had Sen. Gore Senior “in his pocket,” and the quid of that pro quo was big oil money for the Gore family. Gore Senior died as vice chairman of Oxy Petro with a major holding in the stock, and Al and family got a lot of oil money from his will — just as the Gores always got money from the industry for extraction. Google “Gore and Occidental” to get the details. I’ve sent these links to my “green” friends, and they just close their eyes and put their hands over their ears. No fair fighting hot air with facts! If there were a Nobel for hypocrisy, Gore would be a shoo-in.
