Results of a program using Aspen’s Canary Initiative to sell carbon offset credits to Democratic National Convention attendees are a little underwhelming.

The program, set up by the DNC Host Committee through the Denver Convention and Visitors Bureau and rolled out about a week before the convention started, raised a total of $18.34 worth of Canary Tags...

“Looks like the DUmmies are not worried about man made global warming.”

Or maybe they just secretly admitted to themselves that trading “carbon credits” has about as much effect on overall “pollution” by that EVIL carbon dioxide as selling plots of land on the Moon does to the availability of real estate on Earth.

Wearing “Green” is mostly a fashion statement, and all good Dummies want to be in style!

Democrats are all talk and no walk when it comes to using their money for what they are pushing.

Just look at Bin Biden’s miserly donations to charity the past 10 years:

Joe Biden and American Charity—What his tax returns mean.
National Review ^ | 9-15-08 | Byron York

Posted on Monday, September 15, 2008 5:31:42 AM by SJackson

It has become a common practice, when a presidential candidate releases his or her tax returns, for reporters and pundits to examine how much the candidate gave to charity. In September 1992, for example, when the Washington Post reported that Al Gore, then the Democratic candidate for vice president, had released his tax returns, the second paragraph in the story noted that out of income of $183,558, Gore “donated $1,727 — less than 1 percent — to charity.” Other stories about other candidates routinely included figures on charitable giving.

Last Friday, Sen. Joseph Biden, the Democratic candidate for vice president, released his tax returns for the years 1998 to 2007. The returns revealed that in one year, 1998, Biden and his wife Jill gave $120 to charity out of an adjusted gross income of $210,979. In 2005, out of an adjusted gross income of $321,379, the Bidens gave $380. In nine out of the ten years for which tax returns were released, the Bidens gave less than $400 to charity; in the tenth year, 2007, when Biden was running for president, they gave $995 out of an adjusted gross income of $319,853.

Here is a chart of the Bidens’ giving for the years covered by the tax returns: Adjusted Gross Income Charity

1998 $215,432 $195

1999 $210,797 $120

2000 $219,953 $360

2001 $220,712 $360

2002 $227,811 $260

2003 $231,375 $260

2004 $234,271 $380

2005 $321,379 $380

2006 $248,459 $380

2007 $319,853 $995

Total $2,450,042 $3,690

I would like to see a paper trail on this money. For what was it actually used?

Biden contributes, by making everyone contribute. These leftists are pure evil.

“Biden contributes, by making everyone contribute. These leftists are pure evil.”

Yes, they are from the zip code level, to city level, to county level, to state level and national level.

Out here in California, their concept of being charitable is working for some phoney non profit and getting a paycheck for collecting donations and maybe delivering 1-5% to the actual charity.

Biden is very cheap with his own money.

Liberals love to spend our money on their causes.

“You need more targeted marketing than a general press release,” Burnap said.

As if they couldn't have put up signs all over the convention site. Made general announcements. Thrown in a plug in a speech or two. It just shows how dumb these "canaries" think we are.

What happened, was Al Gore not given his cut, and is interfering behind the scenes? Thanks geo.
