ROFLMFAO!....Al Gore!....What a loser.

Al says sea levels are gonna rise 20 feet,...and people actually believe this idiocy.

Al still hasn't budged an inch from his prediction.

He still says Florida will be underwater during this century!

ROFLMFAO!

Al is still very bitter from having his ass handed to him (in Florida) in the 2000 presidential election.

And to think he got the Nobel Prize for this lunacy.

They'll give it to anybody these days.

Thug Zimmerman cannot even give his loser autograph away at a Florida gun show, of all places.

What does that tell the NRA racists here?

You are all in the small hated minority in the USA. Face it.

Do you think the common person like you or me would reap any benefits or even know what the government was able to get out of it! The president at the time was an oil man just like his daddy. And they are eating a lot bigger steaks than we are and laughing their asses off at the American people.

I guess for the average Kurd living in Iraq,...the benefits would be not waking up dead from a massive gas attack.....But I guess the Kurds don't count in your world view.

Nor do the millions of Iraqi's who were forced to live in fear under Saddam for decades.

Nor do the millions of Middle Easterners in the region surrounding Iraq who Saddam had waged war on during his long reign of terror.

For the "common person".... the benefit would be,... the continued flow of oil into the worlds markets in order to keep the worlds economic engine running smoothly and to keep the world economy from collapsing like domino's.

But I guess idiots like you who survive off of the government teat don't really care or understand where your benefits come from.

Your ignorance and stupidity is remarkable,...it rivals only your anger and hatred.

Funny! Even the Washington Post continues today to point out the obvious about Thug Zimmerman.

Washington Post Title:

"George Zimmerman’s bloody autograph"

"We have long known that George Zimmerman is a craven attention-seeker. From traffic stops to domestic violence calls, the killer of Trayvon Martin has been in the news with irritating regularity since he was acquitted of second-degree murder in July 2013. But what Zimmerman did over the weekend was, well, just beyond." [Signing autographs at a Florida gun show. Very few people showed]

"Last month, Zimmerman granted interviews to CNN, Univision and Fusion Univision to bemoan his life of bulletproof vests and fear that someone will harm him or his family. Throw in his lament about unemployment and homelessness and the pity-party orchestra’s violin section is in full crescendo."

George Zimmerman fails to make 'a killing' at gun show

March 10, 2014

There's no question that George Zimmerman is a killer: He has admitted to killing Trayvon Martin, after all. Now, though, the Floridian, deprived of any chance at a big celebrity boxing payday, is hoping to make a killing doing autographs. Zimmerman did a meet-and-greet at a Florida gun show on Saturday, Thinkprogress reported.

He failed to make a killing, though. Fearing backlash, the organizers of the New Orlando Gun Show had to move the gun show to a less traveled venue. To get his signature, folks had to find him in a rear office of The Arms Room gun store in Orlando, Fla. The event was moved to The Arms Room after the original venue for the gun show backed out because of the controversy surrounding Zimmerman.

Over the course of six hours, less than 20 people at the gun show asked for his signature -- which was free -- or for a photo with Trayvon Martin’s killer.

The signed photograph shows George ZImmerman and his dog, but the image is of a much slimmer Zimmerman than current meets the public eye.

Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager, fatally on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla. On July 13, 2013, a jury acquitted him of second-degree murder and of manslaughter charges.

Although the verdict was met with public outcry, some legal scholars were unsurprised by it. They said the prosecution had erred when it charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder which, Wikipedia given Florida's laws on self-defense, made it almost impossible for the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt with the evidence at their disposal.

Laurie Levenson, a criminal law professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles said:

"Although the facts are tragic, I don't think they should have brought this as a murder case. It would have been more plausible to argue that Zimmerman was grossly negligent and that he brought on the confrontation."

Since the trial, Zimmerman has remained in the headlines -- negatively. He has seen two dropped charges of domestic violence and the aforementioned charity boxing match.
