Doug From Upland's siting Arianna Huggington and Al Gore exiting large vehicles at a conference on the environment in San Francisco has set the blogs afire. But there are legitimate uses for large vehicles. Really there are. The I just don't think one person driving the LA freeways in one because the want to win a collision contest at the expense of the unfortunate person they might collide with isn't one. Neither is having bigger, always spinning wheels than your neighbor. Neither is because you get a tax writeoff for a vehicle you use only for commuting and driving to the convenience store for ciggaretts and Cheesy Puffs.
The Sierra Club is an organization that uses large passenger vehicles wisely, it's the nation's number one outdoor activity organization - the Sierra Club. They use their large vehicles to take people hiking, rafting, etc. When they go afield fill the vehicles with people and gear rather efficiently, using much less gas than if they all drove individual vehicles in groups of 2 or 3. The Suburban they picked Arianna in may well have been the Sierra Club's designated airport vehicle - with features for handicapped (something the Sierra Club is known for) and perhaps airport parking sticker.
As for Gore driving an Escalade. Is that the Escalade that coverts from open-bed truck to enclosed bed (SUV?). And isnt Gore from an Agricultural state. In fact, if I recall hes a farm boy; probably lives on a working farm. Sorry city boy but low-ground clearance, two-wheel drive freeway flyers just get stuck in that Iowa mud down on the farm. Once again, if you nail Gore for driving an SUV, the BS you smell emanating as he exits his vehicle may be real and I for one am not about to tell farmers and ranchers, or people that have to drive on farm or ranch roads, they cant have a truck or other large, high wheelbase vehicle.
It's amazing the hunger for fresh liberal blood. But just like the Swiftboat Vets before him. By the time the undamming truth of DFU's charges comes out, the little weasel will have moved on to the next unsustinable smear campaign.
Is this some kind of a joke?
Gore and the Huff'nPuff want to be transported in big cars and private jets to galas where they can get large fees for whining about.... other people driving big cars and using jets. DFU call 'em on it and correctly so.
Are you calling DFU a "phony freakin neocon gihadist"?
Freeper courtesy dictates that you ping the person you're trashing.
What a surprise that y'all feel that way.
Dude... Proof read and spell check... Your third grade writing level REALLY weakens your argument...
You have absolutely no clue as to what you're talking about..
Did you hijack this identity?
Tell your story walkin'.
Come one over. Have some fun!
Another one bites the DUst.
Lurking troll opii zotted ping.
He can't answer, he is a smoking hole, in addition to the other kind of hole.
Al Gore is a farm boy! Bah, hah, hahhhhhhh....
Tell us another one!!
"And isnt Gore from an Agricultural state. In fact, if I recall hes a farm boy; probably lives on a working farm."
Farmer Al spends about as much time in the fields as John Kerry spends "crawling on his belly stalking deer". Once again proving that if they're going to lie, they should pick a subject they know something about.
But peons like myself who drive Expeditions or other such vehicles are doing the environment harm, right?
What a wasted zot.
It is pretty cute to use the name larry elders, a spinoff of Larry Elder. This really has disturbed the nitwit. Admin Moderator, please allow this to remain.
Damn it. You people are so fricking stupid, it's shocking.
Your argument is as full of holes as Saddam's boys. I'm sure the Sierra club's vehicles are all CNG, right? DFU does some great work. You, on the other hand, suck.
The dictionary is our fiend...I mean friend
You're entitled to your opinion.
I, however, am equally entitled to ignore your opinion.
You leftists are all alike: one rule for yourselves, and another for us peons. I'll give my life defeating you before I ever bow to your ridiculous dictates.
