Basic common sense, updated as needed, regarding world news, local issues, and just general thoughts. Some may call these comments, (rants), CONSERVATIVE. I guess that means Conservatives HAVE common sense. But more importantly, these are MY thoughts. Not the lock-step rants of "my handlers". Basically this: AMERICAN. Patriotic. Conservative. Republican. Catholic. White. Not ashamed of any of it. No excuses. How do ya like them apples?

AL-i GORE-ba and the Forty Lies

OPEN W-I-D-E...insert foot.
I was going to start by commenting that the picture is rumoured to be Al's "headshot" so-to-speak, for his recent audition to enter the ***DISPARAGING REMARK EDITED by author*** industry.
But...once they discovered that he has no ***DISPARAGING REMARK EDITED by author***, it didn't matter how wide he could open up!
Why do I ridicule a past Vice-President of the United States? Because he, like Jimmy Carter have joined the enemy...plain and simple. Shame on them both.
They both deserve our utter contempt and I'll be darned if that's not a bandwagon that I'd be glad to Captain!
We'll leave Jimmy alone...'till next time he opens his useless mouth and concentrate at this point on ol' Al.
Al Gore,
former Vice-POTUS,
former candidate (loser), of his party for the highest office in the land,
former Senator,
former tobacco farmer,
former American,
former holder of more than 17 brain cells,
former oak tree.
We'll just call him Al.

Al recently made a speech in Saudi Arabia. That's ok. Lots of well known people travel to other lands and make speeches...even Michael Moore does it...as long as there's a buffet.
Well Al decided to accept an invitation from, now get this straight folks...
, to speak in front of a bunch of Arabs.
Ol' Al could have chosen the path of a statesman. Ol' Al could have done his best to put a good face on America. He could have sung the praises of his home country and moved America forward. Ol' Al could have used this venue to HELP America.
Ol' Al chose NOT to.
Al Gore, former everything, decided to bash America, bash our troops, bash our President, bash American foreign policy, and generally do his best to "play to the audience", by blowing on the embers of an underlying flame of hatred and suspicion...don't forget where 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers came from folks!
Good job Al-i.
I'm quite sure that THE BIN LADEN GROUP got their moneys worth.
The Bin Laden Group...does that name ring a bell anywhere?
How much did you get Al? Thirty pieces of silver used to be the going rate!
If I were in charge, this dispicable creature would be immediately arrested upon his return to the country he so despises.
He is a traitor.
He is a subversive.
He is a disgrace.
He is an embarrassment.
He qualifies, especially in the midst of a WAR, as all of the above...and then some.

Al?...go back for another screen test will ya?
There's got to be a group out there that produces "Neuter Films"
...maybe the French?

Well, I may as well beat all of the lefties to the punch: Yer an F'n ahole idyiet.

Now that we have that out of the way, isn't it amazing what some scum suckers will do for money. Now I know that the Bin Laden Group has publicly disassociated themselves with Ohmama, would you happily go tricky trotting off to their company picnic to give a speech?
Maybe someone should meet Mr. "I invented the Internet" at the airport and take away his US passport. I know I know, freedom of speech and all that great stuff, but do you really think the founders had him in mind when they wrote that part of the Bill of Rights? If they could have seen into the future, there might be a big black spot where they tried to erase that part.

Al Gore is a prime example of what can happen if a person attempts a Do-It-Yourself Lobotomy. He's so full of...uh...himself, that he turned over a couple centuries of precedence and had to whine about a presidential recount, over and over. I'm not afraid to state that the historical record shows him to be a liar and a hypocrite. Too bad video exists, Al! If such as he are our so-called leaders, this country is in BIG trouble.

Yo, doofus, I mean, Al. If you feel so empathetic toward the middle east, move there! I don't believe your pathetic "act" would be tolerated there for long.

Wow folks!
It appears I've "hit a nerve" with this one.
If what I've gotten in emails continues, I'll have to do a "Hate Mail" post! Stay tuned!

I was pretty sure that Saudi Arabia and the Arabs there were "friends" of the US...which basically means they have money and oil. Moreover, I'm also sure that the Bush administration, and Bush family no less, has business ties with the Bin Laden Group (related, but not affiliated with, Osama).

Now, with that said, it seems to me that speaking to these people is hardly different than to speaking to, say, a group of Halliburton execs.

If you're complaining about what Al said, thats fine. I would disagree with your portrayal of it, but I can accept that you have different opinions. But to criticize who he spoke to, in this situation, is a bit disingenuous.

AND, one final point. When the administratio says that we're in a war that will last for a VERY long time (the war on terror), conservatives are not allowed to use said war to make actions "wrong". (as you use it, "especially in the midst of a WAR").

"Gore told the largely Saudi audience, many of them educated at U.S. universities, that Arabs in the United States had been "indiscriminately rounded up, often on minor charges of overstaying a visa or not having a green card in proper order"

Uh yea, and when are we supposed to take them into custody?

OK my brother, there is a point we do have to give the former VP. He did make a reasonable plea for more middle-east support against Iran's nuclear program. Of course, it's the only bit of sense that came out of his mouth, but at least it was something.

I think the point of Gore's comment here was not to complaint that Arabs were being deported due to expired green cards, but that they were being deported due to expired green cards and no other nationalities were.

You can argue that ALL foreigners should be deported for having expired visas/green cards...but, to do so, you must argue that this is applied equally and broadly. The problem in the US is that we regularly let this offense slide, but recently, we choose to enforce it more strictly against Arabs merely because of their race.

Yea, a race that formed the core of the terror attacks against the United States. Let the next attacks come from outer Bulgarians and we'll see a publicized crackdown on illegal Bulgarian residents. Try to keep a focus on the reasons these things happen. How many Hindu terrorist cells do you think exist in America.

But that wasn't the base of the previous argument...the base was that they were breaking the law, not that they were a particular race.

If you want to argue that we should kick them out for being Arabic (you know, just to be safe) then argue that. If you want to argue that we should strictly enforce the law, then argue that. But please, don't be so ignorant as to argue that we should strictly enforce the law ONLY against a particular race. That's just being silly.

Hey "j walker".
Get a freakin' life will ya?
If you've got sooo much time to waste arguing with people you'll never know and never meet, why don't you spend the energy on your own blog!
Geez...are you just completely bored and in need of conversation?
Go to a Rest Home and help some older folks...they LOVE to chat it up, and you might actually get someone who gives a rats ass what you think!!

OK J. just to keep the fun going,
I didn't argue anything originally. I just asked "if you don't pick someone up you know has violated the law, when do you pick them up?" Failure to enforce this law allowed the 911 hijacker to remain in this country and carry out the plan.

Would you rather there be another round of general detention for all people of a particular race? Not me, I happen to like my neighbors, who by the way I attended their oath of citizenship.

My next response simply presented the rational for the stricter enforcement toward a single part of a society. Just because you don't seem to be able to keep up is no reason to start calling someone ignorant.

By the way, from the bus loads of illegals I get to see being deported, I don't think there is a particular bias, I think it is just more visible to people that have had blinders on.

Hey anonymous...how about saying something that contributes to the conversation. I have a life...and my own blog for that matter. If you don't care what I think, don't read it and don't comment about it.

"I didn't argue anything originally."
-Fair enough.

"Failure to enforce this law allowed the 911 hijacker to remain in this country and carry out the plan."

-I dont think the hijackers had expired visas, but I'd be willing to admit I'm wrong about this if someone shows otherwise.

"My next response simply presented the rational for the stricter enforcement toward a single part of a society. Just because you don't seem to be able to keep up is no reason to start calling someone ignorant."

- I DID understand your point, I just thought that it was a silly point to make. I don't think there is a good rationale for enforcing a law more strictly toward a single part of society. Enforce it strictly for everyone. I also never said that there is a bias against those being deported - I just said that such a bias, if it existed, would be wrong.

Well J, there ya go, a two way misunderstanding. Now back to the real point. Because of the media and increased awareness, it looks as though we are focusing on Arabs and Muslems more closely than ever. The truth is, before 911 we didn't have the money to invest in enforcement of the "minor" offences of expired visas or greencard disorders. Now we have the money to chase down Bulgarian janitors and put them into camps all over the country, but we don't have the manpower to do it quickly. The only time there is any objective media coverage is when there is a disturbance at a processing facility. Usually it is only local coverage at that. Do some research on the Castaic processing facility.

So, aside from my original flip comments, our politicians have a way of knocking down the work they have told us to do and Mr. Gore's comments in a foreign country are a prime example.
