Al Bore is most famous for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the 2000 pres. election. Then being too dignified to question the obvious cheating which installed shrub "as leader of the free world"
I was and still am proud to have voted for Nader in 2000. I'd rather support the bush dynasty than have Joe Lieberman one heartbeat away from "the button". News flash here to democrats, had nader not been on the ballot I might just filled in the circle next to george w bush.
WHAT THE @$%&*! Al bore chose leiberman, the senator from tel-aviv, as his running mate and now he's getting a peace prize??? dick cheney may occasionally clobber a hunting buddy and rumor has it he eats a baby once in a while but if you cross lieberman he wouldnt hesitate to drive an IDF modified d-9 cat up your butt. Us 'Mericans are pretty ignorant of mideast polotics but the nobel prize is from norway- isnt that some where in Europe where they ought to know better???
I will admit that al bore is a brilliant man. He invented the internet and he knows whats best for you. His spelling and punctuation are probably a lot better than mine.
The extreme arrogance bothers me, I belive as human beings we need to look past our selves and consider the entire 5 billion strong human race as one. So it's not just my crappy (lack of) "self esteem" that I dont capitialize my name all the time.
The other thing is the glaring hypocrisy in Al's lifestyle.
It reminds me of the early 1990's, I was studying Forestry and lived and worked among loggers and millworkers, I remember this "environmentalist" movie narrated by meryl streep where she was sitting on a huge deck in a custom house in the woods. the loggers and millworkers I knew lived in modest homes literaly built from the leftover scraps of such places. People who practiced what they preached like my roomate who insisted on living small were cast aside by these sierra-clubbers as crazy radicals.
Put the VCR on fast-forward and scan thru "inconveinent truth" you'll see Al in a town car, Al in an airplane, Al in a helicopter. Google up his famous $30000 power bill. Anyone who uses 20 times the average amount of power in his house should have thier service cut off and forced to go to conservation class with Jimmy Carter and Energy Ant.
The nobel peace prize ought to go to someone working directly for peace.
