Gore on Green Investments: "I Put my Money Where my Mouth Is"
ABC News ^ | November 3, 2009 | By KATE McCARTHY and POLSON KANNETH

Posted on 11/03/2009 7:00:51 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

Al Gore has been advocating for climate change for 30 years and the former vice president says he is more than willing to put his "money where his mouth is" and invest in green companies.

In an interview on "Good Morning America" this morning the climate change guru commented on a quote from a story in Tuesday's New York Times which referred to Gore as the first "carbon billionaire," and said he was profiting from policies he supports.

Gore said the comment was from a "denier" and "certainly not true."

"I am proud to put my money where my mouth is for the past 30 years," Gore told Diane Sawyer.

He’s not putting HIS money out there.
He’s putting OUR money out there.

Nearly every one of these ventures relies upon taxpayer dollars. They’re not private ventures by any measure.

What a fascist prick. Does he want us "deniers" to all wear yellow "D"s on our clothes, so people can spit on us on the street?

He puts his mouth where his money is, to lie, steal and obfuscate his way into taxing the planet with made-up science to make himself wealthy. He is nothing more than a Madoff-style grifter.

He’s essentially running a scan. He “invests” then uses his political influence to pass legislation that will make his investments pay off. He’s crooked as the day is long — but just a regular politician.

What about his house that uses 12 times the amount of energy that an “average” house uses,

and this figure doesn’t count his “off-grid” generated power from his solar panels.

" . . . to put his "money where his mouth is"

Gore's daddy already did that for Al when his dad was a senator during the depression. He bought Occidental Oil stock of which Algore still owns.

Algore invented the internet and global warming.

He and his lovely wife were the characters that the book “Love Story” was based on.

Algore knew nothing about the Whitehouse sleepovers, but even if he had, they were not illegal — there was no “controlling authority.”

Algore demanded a fair recount in Florida in 2000. He demanded that the Miami and Palm Beach votes be retallied, but not the votes from the Panhandle or the absentee military votes, because that would be unfair.

Algore demanded a fair recount in Florida in 2000.

I still wonder how Gore "knew" there was voter fraud before the polls closed in Florida, and why his campaign contacted a public relations firm in Texarkana to call Floridians to tell them their votes didn't count (also before polls closed). Could it be that his flunkie operatives were "wiring" the ballots wrong. The way you wire a ballot is run a straightened paper clip through a small stack of ballots (so I'm told). The wire goes through your candidate's punch. That way there's a invalid double vote for the other guys. My guess is they pushed the wire through the wrong punch and called Al to let him know they screwed up. I would also guess that you'd get a bunch of hanging chads by trying to wire too many ballots at the same time. Just a thought...

This nut “burned” records and trashed careers to get on the public stage with a Senate subcommittee hearing into “rock music”. He ran for president in 1988 after that grandstanding and then successfully got the VP nod in 1992 and again in 1996 and presidential nomination in 2000.

He is a lying a&&hole who doesn’t care WHO he has to crush to get ahead in life.

And Frank Zappa’s kids were dumb enough to endorse him. Daddy had to be spinning in his grave over that one.

The only way to dimple that many ballots is by stacking them and poking “new” votes.

The whole idea is to do a stack at a time. These are cards that have already been punched (actual votes). The result of a large stack can be hanging chads on some ballots in the middle of the stack and dimples on the bottom of the stack. Dimples to a DemocRAT means voter intent.

By pushing the wire through your guys punch one of 3 things happen.

1) If there are no votes for any candidate it becomes a vote for your guy.
2) A vote for your guy is unchanged as the wire passes throught the hole.
3) It invalidates a ballot for any other candidate for the office because it becomes a double punch.

The only way to fix this punch card tampering is to use electronic voting machines that use software that allows only a set number of votes for each office (President and Congress is 1). You shouldn’t have any double punch issues.

Didn’t he just get half a billion dollars of stimulus money for his car company to build green cars?

“’Comrades!’ he cried. ‘You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples....

...Milk and apples contain substance absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brain works. The whole management and organization of this farm depended on us. Day and night we are watching over our well fare. It is for your sake that we drink the milk and eat these apples. “
