Big Al needs a big carbon footprint cause he is a BIG GUY!
However he does own some big a$$ forests and carbon credits for him to go a lil wild. What you idiots forget, we are still working in the capitalist world, if the rich guy can buy enough carbon credits to offset his footprint so be it. It's all about reducing the footprint and if you can some poor guys share then that's how the capitalist system works. He uses it to perfection! There is lots of money to be made from green in the future.
that idiot truly believes "green" energy has no impact on the environment. Very few are that brainwashed.

I often wondered why people with money would vote for a Socialist/Democrat politician.

But if you think about it, it makes sense in some cases.

Hollywood billionaires like Oprah grew up poor, made a lot of money relatively quickly. They appeal to the low information, TV-addicted crowd for their fan base. So they carry on the entitlement mentality of the poor they grew up with, and cash the checks from their fan base of ignorant people.

The SMART billionaires like Soros manipulate currency markets for their millions. So how better to rig the game than to have inside information from your purchased politicians? That's how Princess Pelosi has accumulated tens of millions of dollars while being paid less than $200K/year as a representative.

Corporate leaders that seem leftist are doing so out of self-defense. If a leftist is in charge of the gubbermint, and the gubbermint can destroy your business at will, you do whatever you can to appeal to the leftist in charge of the gubbermint.

The leftist politicians use both angles-- they buy the votes from the ignorant leftist voters with gubbermint handouts, then extort money from corporations and harvest all the kickbacks and inside deals that come with it.

Liberal fantasy-land

Liberal fantasy-land
By Lisa Fabrizio
Spurred by plunging approval numbers and his failure to produce for the American people, the president's term will come to an early and untimely end on May 14th. It seems the public has had its fill of liberal fantasy-land President Josiah Bartlet.
"The West Wing," cancelled after seven seasons on NBC, has been a safe haven for those who can't bear the reality that somewhere, out there, large groups of Americans have elected and re-elected George W. Bush. Some say the show actually mirrored real life in DC and they may be correct. After all, sometimes it's easier to accept that Alan Alda is a Republican senator than say, Arlen Specter.
But Josiah Bartlet isn't the only fantasy president cooked up by liberals. There is apparently, another Commander in Chief, and I don't mean Geena Davis. This president, far from acting in the nation's best interests, is alternately portrayed as a Constitution-hating dictator, an exploitive warmonger, a greedy capitalist, a scheming theocrat and Adolph Hitler.
These views are understandable coming from those who dwell in the lands of chocolate New Orleans and Hillary Clinton's illusory plantation but they are surely at odds with much of the country. Yet when it comes to President Bush, the fantasies of his imminent demise persist.
To that end, the latest liberal talking points suggest that we are not only losing our precious civil liberties due to the sinister machinations of 'the shrub,' but the War on Terror itself. One would think this is foolish considering that the WOT is regarded as the president's strongest suit, but they are not deterred.
Liberals have long had trouble understanding the terms 'winning' and 'losing' when it comes to war — see Walter Cronkite and the Tet Offensive — so their thinking becomes even more convoluted when discussing it. And when confronted with the question of why there have been no further terrorist incidents here at home, it resembles the proverbial pretzel.
One such riff goes like this: "There haven't been any attacks here yet because the terrorists are busy in Iraq and Afghanistan." When it's suggested that maybe that was the whole idea, they begin searching for the third eye on your forehead and move on to their next anti-Bushism.
The latest impeachable offense is the so-called illegal wiretapping issue. Liberals love polls, especially those that are manipulated to reflect their views while they tend to dismiss those that do not. But one they've particularly ignored suggests that the majority of the American people are in favor of the president's use of warrant-less wiretapping to identify domestic ties to international terrorists.
Not only that, half of those polled feel that those who blew the NSA's cover are traitors rather than whistle-blowers; those selfless heroes who are so revered by the left, unless their name is Linda Tripp. Americans may be receptive to liberal propaganda on many fronts but fortunately, national security is not one of them.
Undaunted by their failure to win that battle in their war on Bush, the Democrats' latest strategy to retake the country is to focus on congressional ethics. But while trying to morph the dirty-doings of a few crooked Republicans into a "culture of corruption," they are painting with a brush that might be too wide for their own good.
Their self-righteous claim that they received no direct money from Jack Abramoff is akin to Al Gore's famous remark after collecting sacks of money from Buddhist monks: "I did not know that it was a fund-raiser." That there are crooks up on Capitol Hill is not breaking news to the American people.
Yet they are sure that GOP corruption goes straight to the top. Their proof? Photos of President Bush with the dastardly Abramoff. Imagine that; a man photographed thousands of times a year poses with a big party donor. Wonder what they would think if he was snapped with sleazy drug dealers, Red Chinese bag men or lascivious interns?

The main reason I have a deep-seated mistrust, not hatred, towards this president is because I knew this country could never be blessed if our leader had such a disregard towards the sanctity of human life that he could callously deny a born alive botched abortion baby medical care. Not voting to allow medical care is the same as voting no to allowing medical care.
The other reasons should be obvious...his lack of real-world life experiences, a lack of real-world leadership experiences, the total disconnect to understanding what makes this country tick, and shady and corrupt affiliations had a lot to do with it.
The fact he was voted by a nonpartisan organization to be the most radical left liberal in Congress didn't give me much hope he would have my best interests at heart either.
My concerns and mistrust have been proven justified.
Crazy talk. The Shrub administration did exactly nothing for the pro life crowd, nor did his daddy or RR__like Obama they understood that it's toxic subject surrounded by lunatics and best left to the states to waste time and money on.

Do you recall who started those drone attacks?

Where was your outrage when Bush was killing American citizens?!!

"On November 5, 2002, a US Predator Drone fired a hellfire missile at a car traveling through the Mar’ib province of Yemen, destroying it and killing the six people inside. One of the dead was a US citizen. One of the dead was the country’s most senior level al Qaeda operative, wanted for the October 12, 2000 bombing of the USS Cole that killed 17 sailors."

Why don't you read the bill Bush vetoed for Pete's sake! There was absolutely no way in hell Bush was going to allow any reports to be issued on the illegal enhanced interrogation practices under his watch.

Sec. 206 (c)12 for example:

"The Director of National Intelligence shall, in consultation with the head of the element of the intelligence community concerned, prepare an annual personnel level assessment for such element of the intelligence community.....

(12) A list of all contractors that have been the subject of an investigation completed by the Inspector General of any element of the intelligence community during the preceding fiscal year, or are or have been the subject of an investigation by such an Inspector General during the current fiscal year.

Sec. 307 (b1):

The Director of National Intelligence shall submit to the congressional intelligence committees a report describing the personal services activities performed by contractors across the intelligence community....

J) an analysis of procedures in use in the intelligence community for conducting oversight of contractors to ensure identification and prosecution of criminal violations... or other abuses committed by contractors or contract personnel.

(2) ACTIVITIES- Activities described in this paragraph are the following:
(A) Intelligence collection.
(B) Intelligence analysis.
(C) Covert actions, including rendition, detention, and interrogation activities.

Don't forget the IRS sending tax return monies overseas.
The Internal Revenue Service issued $4 billion in fraudulent tax refunds last year to people using stolen identities, with some of the money going to addresses in Bulgaria, Lithuania and Ireland, according to a Treasury report released Thursday.
The IRS sent a total of 655 tax refunds to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 refunds went to a lone address in Shanghai.

Can you ever follow a train of thought?

You were the one bemoaning bombs during wars causing deaths of citizens. I asked if the Obama drones used outside of war was okay with you.

So, your answer is drones used when we are not at war with a country is okay, but bombs during a war is bad?

Duck Dynasty-endorsed Republican wins La. House seat

By PAUL BEDARD | NOVEMBER 17, 2013 AT 1:03 PM

An unknown political novice who has never visited Washington, D.C., won a special election for Louisiana's 5th District seat Saturday on the endorsement of the “Duck Dynasty” family and a promise to fix Obamacare.

Vance McAllister beat establishment candidate Neil Riser, a state senator, in Saturday's runoff election created when former Rep. Rodney Alexander resigned on September 26 to become secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs under Republican Governor Bobby Jindal.

He told local KNOE TV that “Washington may not be ready for me.”

In the race, McAllister, a businessman in the Monroe, La., area, self-funded most of his campaign. He is a friend of the patriarch of TV’s “Duck Dynasty,” Phil Robertson, who endorsed his congressional bid.

A handful of Washington GOP operatives tried to get one of the members of the Duck Dynasty family to run for the seat, but failed.

But the race showed just how powerful the Duck Dynasty trademark is in the area, said an election observer.
