My tagline fits.
Look can someone please answer this for me... i guess I am retarded
I know about cap and gown for graduation
I have heard about cap ON trade

Hold onto your wallet.
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
Gore’s a tool
it’s more like CRAP AND TRADE because this idea/legislation is all CRAP.
Well the term “Cash Cow” fits him perfectly...He’s a freaking Cow with a lot of cash! It would be funny, but it’s our cash he’s hoarding!
Manikins always freaked me out....
Al has NO Oscar. No Academy Award.
The award went to the producer/director of the film - not the actor IN the film.
Al's ATM, you deposit he takes out
If obese people are the latest lie being sold in the global warming money pig, then he better go on a diet.
From Yahoo news....this is good...lots of people will see this.
In that photo he looks like the “Bad Doctor” from “The Fugitive” that framed Harrison Ford.
Gore is an EVIL man...he really is!
