Waiting For the Other Shoe


What do you suppose the Weenie-in-chief is up to now?

He sends Chainy around the world to hasten his departure from the planet, almost made it too.
Suicide bomber sent him scurrying to a bunker in Afghanistan, up to 24 were killed or injured in the blast, maybe he needs to go bird hunting.

More misery worldwide as the disastrous regime of GWB continues unabated. The only hope left is the Libby trial jury findings. Maybe the VP can get his comupence then and end this miserable stinking sewage pile of an Administration before it decides to start killing even more in the name of the almighty oil dollar. Their audacity and deliberate, willful misconduct is unprecedented in American history. The founding fathers never thought that this degree of crook could inhabit the highest office in the land and there are not many provisions in the Constitution to handle this type of crisis.

I'm waiting for the hero to ride up and save us from their despicable, psychological torture program intended to fatten their wallets with ill-gotten gains. I will be waiting a loooooooong time I think, but there is always hope and faith and I am not ready to give up just yet.

"We're going to get [Bin Laden] Dead or alive, it doesn't matter to me." 12/14/2001 Bush's words elsewhere was that he is "determined" to capture Bin Laden dead or alive, and is confident about succeeding.


"..Terror is bigger than one person..So I don't know where [Bin Laden] is..You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you. ...I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him." -- March 13, 2002 Press Conference at the The James S. Brady Briefing Room

Al Gore’s Personal Energy Use Is His Own “Inconvenient Truth”
Gore’s home uses more than 20 times the national average

Nicole Williams
Tennessee Center for Policy Research
Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.

Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).

In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.

Maybe this is not true?

DEN said...

I just hope my hope is not misplaced.

Dream the impossible dream!

DEN said...

I don't give a rip if he consumes forty kajillion megawatts at this point, the message is Global warming is a reality and that was brought to the forefront through the release of his movie, he pays his bills and he can afford it.

To make people understand they are choking the planet with crap burning fossil fuels is the point.

The message, not the messenger.

Saladin said...

DEN, that is a very strange thing to say. He can afford it? That makes it OK? He can burn all the carbon he wants as long as he can pay for it? But all us peons must give up even the least of our luxuries to stop global warming? WOW, I give up. With friends of the environment like him, who needs a devil? Blind leading the blind, now we're ALL in a ditch.

DEN said...

Figured you'd like that one, they use TVA in Tennesee, no carbon needed, water system power generation.

Alan said...

There just are some people (my ex-wife was one of 'em) that aren't happy unless they can bitch and gripe about something. Okay chronic complainer, how big is "the average household" in those stats? The $1300 monthly bill certainly isn't 20-times my electric bill!
quit yer bitchin' and smile every once-in-a-while, you'll fell lots bettahhh!

What nonsense! Digging into Al Gore's utility bills to prove a rightwing point is A REAL WASTE OF ENERGY!!!!

Too bad, the snoops don't point out that his home is about 70 years old and is undergoing renovations to add solar panels, add other energy-saving features, including the energy-efficient windows that have already been installed; that they use energy-saving light bulbs, drive a hybrid, have a large family, have frequent overnight guests, have two home offices (for Al and Tipper), and that Al has donated profits from his two companies to global warming educational efforts.

Gerald said...

Because we do not believe in the God of peace and nonviolence, because we do not climb the mountain of God, because we have not listened to God's instructions, we do not do the works of peace. We do not practice nonviolence because we do not believe in the God of nonviolence. We do not live in peace because we do not worship the God of peace. We think incorrectly that God supports violence, vengeance, retribution, and war, that God must be just like us, that God is mean and deadly. We think that because we are violent and warlike, God must be too. But we have never met the God of the mountain. Our faith, hope and trust is not placed in the living God of peace, but in the false gods of weapons, the idols of death which we have manufactured to kill our enemies and maintain our unjust global hegemony.

If we dare follow Isaiah's vision, and make that journey up and down the mountain of God, one day we will learn to live in peace with one another and discover the meaning of life.

Putz: For hypocrisy before he was against it!

Al Gore is a big fat hypocrite because he talks about global warming and lives in a big house.

So says Putz.

Moralists are especially vulnerable to charges of hypocrisy -- ask any backsliding fundamentalist preacher. If Gore were less moralistic in his approach -- as he gains weight, he's even starting to look a bit like a younger Jerry Falwell -- the charges of hypocrisy would have less bite. But is this the kind of defense he wants?

But Putz had a totally different attitude about hypocrisy and moralizing when he gave a glowing review to a book defending the likes of Bill Bennett from hypocrisy charges.

Gushed Putz:

IN THE MAIL: Jeremy Lott's new book, In Defense of Hypocrisy : Picking Sides in the War on Virtue.

I blurbed his book quite favorably, but the blurb doesn't really do it justice as it doesn't account for my delight in the excellent writing, which produces laugh-out-loud zingers on almost every page. I found it a really enjoyable book.

Apparently so.

"With verve, gusto, and just the right amount of humility, Jeremy Lott argues that hypocrisy isn't as bad as advertised, and that the critics of hypocrisy are often hypocritical themselves. A perfect read and a necessary corrective for this political season." --Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit.com

The lesson here, for those keeping score at home, is when Bill O'Reilly is accused of sexual harassment, or it comes out that Bill Bennett is a degenerate gambler, or that Rush Limbaugh is a doper -- these examples of hypocrisy aren't "as bad as advertised" and those accusing them of hypocrisy are hypocrites themselves.

But a phony story about Gore --- the kind of hypocrisy that's completely made up --- that's worthy of extensive condemnation and deliberation.

Unbelievable.

Chalmers Johnson

I heard Mr. Johnson on NPR and he recently wrote his book on NEMESIS. He is very fearful, like me, that we are no more a Constitutional Democracy. We are basically in the last stages to being a total Nazi state.

Nazi America is an EVIL EMPIRE!!!!!!!!!!

No empire in the history of the Universe is more evil than Nazi America!!!!!!!!!!

Gerald said...

micki, I meant it as a compliment!

We need millions of Americans to speak out against our failing democracy.

Chalmers Johnson talks of America's serious problems. We are facing a crisis in our country of epic proportions.

There are nights that I awake in a cold sweat from my nightmares of our true destiny. Our manifest destiny is to be completely enslaved by our Nazi rulers.

A Far Too Convenient $mear: Part One - Updated - Rush Update

Co-written with (mostly written by) James Boyce

Did you honestly think that the Right Wing $mear machine was going to let Al Gore stand up with the terrific team who created and direct the movie and receive an Oscar for "An Inconvenient Truth?"

Did you really believe they would stand by and watch a Democratic leader validated for his life's work?

No chance in hell. As we have said here before, They destroy our leaders. Note to Senator Obama: spare us the hope and bi-partisanship talk and help us fight back.

Here's what we know, what we think, what we're trying to find out and how you can help.

Last night, Al Gore got very favorable national press and worldwide television exposure.

This afternoon, a group calling itself "The Tennessee Center For Policy Research" sent out a press release denouncing Vice President Gore for the size of his household electrical bills.

Let's start right there. How did they get the utility bills? They also didn't have the courtesy to ask Vice President Gore about them (despite their hollow claim of being non-partisan.) And why would a "think tank" possibly care about what Al Gore spends on gas?

More here

Right wing smear machine at work.
Don't do anything to help, just drag leftys into the dirt with them.

Gerald said...

We are only seeing the tip of the iceberg that awaits Americans' pain and suffering from Nazi America's evil policies and practices.

The Demise of the United States of America

This is my third doctrine in sharing with you. I share this third doctrine with a heavy heart. I will be discussing the demise of my country. There are probably hundreds of reasons for our death but I will give some of my reasons.

Through the centuries civilizations and empires have risen and fallen. I will be discussing the death of Nazi America. History does repeat itself. Historians often look to the Roman Empire and I will be no different.

The Roman Empire fell for a variety reasons, such as lead poisoning through their use of lead pots and pans, the possible rise of Christianity, the hiring of mercenaries to fight their endless wars, and the slaves to do the domestic work.

Let us look closely at the demise of the United States of America. Our death is similar and yet very complex because our death occurs in the twenty-first century. The twenty-first century was supposedly more advanced and yet it was probably less advanced in terms of humanitarian reasons.

We can look at our deregulations of the environment that is killing off life from animal to human life. It was Nazi America’s fall from Christianity that also aided in our demise. We turned our backs on Jesus Christ and accepted bushianity. Bushianity is a religion that has eight pillars for its strength. These eight pillars are hatred, murders, torture, war crimes, corruption, decadence, greed, and lies. These eight pillars gradually destroyed the mind, body, and souls of our citizens and our nation as a whole. We also hired mercenaries to fight our endless wars because the Nazis have systematically killed off our children. We have also destroyed our middle class and hired people at slave wages. American corporations have also been instrumentally involved with our Nazi government by destroying the middle class with outsourcing and the hiring foreigners for less money. Nazi American lives have diminished steadily for decades.

Nazi Americans have developed a sense of hopelessness from our children to our adults. Our citizens and politicians have preferred screwing around and not parenting. Our teenagers are a great resource for us because they are into fairness and idealism.

Fairness is not just for themselves but also for their friends and other people. They are also idealistic because they believe in a better world. Our country cannot be a role model for
other countries because we have demoralized our people to the point that hopelessness and fear are rampant in our nation and among our people. We are already at the bottom of the abyss into hell.

Nazi Americans have a unique way of behavior toward people whom we consider different. We are great at stigmatizing people by bias, distrust, stereotyping, fear, embarrassment, anger, and/or avoidance.

Our evil and immoral ways have brought to us what we deserve our demise as a nation. People usually get what they deserve and Nazi America deserves death.

Honeybees "Inexplicably" Disappear In 24 States

The New York Times | ALEXEI BARRIONUEVO | Posted February 26, 2007 10:02 PM

David Bradshaw has endured countless stings during his life as a beekeeper, but he got the shock of his career when he opened his boxes last month and found half of his 100 million bees missing.

In 24 states throughout the country, beekeepers have gone through similar shocks as their bees have been disappearing inexplicably at an alarming rate, threatening not only their livelihoods but also the production of numerous crops, including California almonds, one of the nation's most profitable.

This is NOT good. I have noticed the reduction in my yard.

Gerald said...

If Al Gore is converting his home to solar energy, then he is practicing what he is preaching.

Our empire must be on guard against the swiftboaters who fail with regard to the Eighth Commandment - You shall not lie (Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor).

Our empire is wallowing in the abyss of hell from all our lies, hatred, murders, war crimes, corruption, decadence, greed, and torture of human beings.

Why do we have to remain and promote evil in our empire and in our world???

Sorry about your dental work. So much fun, isn't it. The pain is more intense in that wallet of yours, huh?

The only hope in the Libby verdict will be to add to the mountains of evidence against Cheney. Nothing more will come out of it now. That's how historical events work and it's so maddening. Then again, we didn't really hold out much hope for this trial.

It's certainly been difficult to remain with your head above the sea of angst engulfing us, hasn't it?

Micki,

So right about Cheney. He does what he wants when he wants. He is the president.

I've not had time to catch up yet. I'll get to it. I wanted to make sure all of you read Seymour Hersh. I'm sure somebody's already posted the link, but I'll post it again to make sure, so important Sy Hersh's commentaries are.

Bush is Funding al-Qaeda, Making Him an Unlawful Combatant
by Dave Lindorff | Feb 27 2007 - 9:13am | permalink
article tools: email | print | read more Dave Lindorff

It was always clear that the $21 billion in Iraq reconstruction funds, most of which disappeared into Iraq (much of it was in the form of bales of $100 bills), didn't just vanish.

Given the number of veterans of the Iran-Contra scandal operating in the Bush White House and Pentagon--many of them convicted felons or unindicted co-conspirators in that baroque criminal scandal from the Reagan presidency--it seemed obvious that such easy cash would end up being funnelled into secret wars and secret military projects, as well as other nefarious activities.

Now we learn from ace investigative reporter Sy Hersh, speaking on CNN, that Bush and his criminal crew have been using this illicit, stolen cash to fund covert attacks on Iranian targets, and that much of the money has been going--get this--to Sunni jihadists linked to Al-Qaeda--the very people we're fighting in Iraq!

This is surely taking that old saw, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," to the extreme! First we let Osama Bin Laden escape from Tora Bora, and now we're funding him and his allies, supposedly to attack our new enemy, Iran. It's enough to make you queasy. Osama must be laughing all the way to the bank. First we set him up, when we wanted him to attack the Soviets in Afghanistan. Then he turned on us and attacked us. And now we're back to supporting him again.

No wonder when Congress passed a bill creating an office of inspector general to check on all that vanishing Iraq cash, Bush furtively issued one of his "signing statements" saying that the new inspector would be barred from examining any funds that involved the Pentagon--effectively nullifying the law!

Now, it should be pointed out that under anti-terrorism legislation submitted by the administration and passed into law by the Congress, providing aid to Al-Qaeda or to organizations in any way linked to terrorism is a federal crime and classifies the perpetrator as an abettor of terrorism and even as an "unlawful combatant," subject to loss of citizenship rights, and suitable for rendition to Guantanamo or some other secret torture hell-hole.

I suppose the proper thing at this point would be for some patriotic prosecutor or some general to march into the White House and haul the president off to be waterboarded until he lays out all the details of his treasonous actions. (Sure he is the president and is immune from prosecution, but if he's an "unlawful combatant," none of that applies. The president has declared this to be so.)

For make no mistake: secretly providing money to terrorist organizations that are daily attacking Americans in Iraq, in order to ignite a new war against Iran, especially at a time that the US military is stretched beyond the limit in Iraq, is nothing short of treason. Even viewed in a more minimalist way, absconding with public funds and diverting them to illegal purposes is criminal fraud.

If Congress does not jump on this immediately, its members will have betrayed their oaths and the nation.

These are dangerous times. We are being led by bloodthirsty men drunk with power and the people who are supposed to be standing up to them are afraid to lift a finger.

The time is fast approaching when the only way America's beleagured and abused troops will be able to defend themselves will be by laying down their arms--or perhaps turning them on their demented leaders.

I know this is late in the day -- and you're on to other complaints, no doubt -- but I don't recall any responsible person suggesting that we "give up the least of our luxuries." What has been suggested is that we look for ways to change some of our habits, that irresponsibly contribute to the climate change crisis.

First half was about his personal story (sad, heart-tugging) and the second half was him visiting soldiers with similiar wounds, interviews he did with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (fairly newly appointed by bush), with more of his story woven in. He jumped that guys shyt too. One thing he confronted the guy with... Dept. of Defense records of 23,000 wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, BUT, Veterans Affairs records of 205,000 soldiers being treated. His reporting should put alotta heat on the administration and I'm hoping it raised awareness in some bubble dwellers.
