Al Gore is….stupid, let’s throw shoes at him.

So, I see an article about Al Gore running his fat mouth about Global Warming Climate Change and in it Mr. Gore had this to say:

“We’re very close to that political tipping point,” Gore said at the Society of Environmental Journalists annual conference at the Madison Concourse Hotel. “Never before in human history has a single generation been asked to make such difficult and consequential decisions.”

Really? No single generation has been asked to make such difficult and consequential decisions? Really? Well, what about this generation:

The American Revolution

Or this one:

The Battan Death March

You don’t think that perhaps these men may have had a teeny bit more trouble with their decisions?

I’m not saying that recycling and trying to reduce our footprint on the planet is a bad thing, and it for sure can’t hurt. But to turn it into some immediate crisis and demand that people do things that you yourself are not willing to do (fly commercial lately? How much was your electric bill last month) is just plain offensive. So, Mr. Gore, could you please just Shut. The. Hell. Up.? That one act could cut the carbon emissions of the United States by 50%. This obsession of yours is not making you more relevant (which I know was the goal) it’s just making you look sad and lonely.

This Really Isn’t Funny Anymore

Well, my fellow American Patriots, it appears that our country has gone from this:

“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President or any other public office save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

To this:

obama-flag

When I saw this at Gateway Pundit and at Fire Andrea Mitchell I nearly lost my breakfast. I wondered if I had woken up in China or N. Korea.

People, please wake up. While, for good or ill, Mr. Obama is the elected representative of the United States, he is NOT the United States. I would dare say he is not even representative of the United States. I do not understand what all the fuss is about anyway. On Friday, when Dear Leader was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize *gigglesnort*, he said himself:

“Let me be clear: I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations,” he said at the White House. “To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who’ve been honored by this prize.”

Now this is only the second time Mr. Obama has said something I agree with. (The first was Kanye West is a jackass). Mr. Obama has done nothing since 2004 but campaign. He got the job, and he’s still campaigning. It’s all he seems to know how to do. He has yet to accomplish one single thing. Well, okay, maybe that’s a bit harsh. He has managed to be the first sitting U.S. President to bow to a foreign leader. He has managed to blame the U.S. for everything from Global Warming to Islamic Terrorism. And I believe he is also the first sitting U.S. President to so totally FUBAR a situation that he was forced to invite folks to the White House for a beer. Oh, and he’s not George W. Bush. But other than that, can’t think of a thing he’s accomplished.

But before the charges of hater and racist start flying around…Let me be clear: Ronald Reagan was and is my favorite president. He was a kind and thoughtful man who took the disaster he inherited (sorry, couldn’t resist) from Jimmy Carter and turned it around. Not by expanding government, but letting the free market principles and the ingenuity of the American People do their thing. He ended the Cold War without military intervention, he got the monstrosity that was the Berlin Wall to disappear. And for all that…I would be just as outraged and a little sick to my stomach to see his face on the American Flag, or to hear children sings songs in ode to him in school. Because you see, the United States isn’t about any one person. The United States is an ideal, an experiment in self-government. We do not have a king, nor do we want one. I mean it has been 26 years since I graduated from high school, but I seem to remember being taught that we fought a war to rid ourselves of a king.

I thought the Obama flip flops were funny, tacky, but funny. The condoms and the thongs…well ewwww. But this, this is just not funny. It’s dangerous. (Uh oh, I think that might make Nancy Pelosi cry). We must be vigilant and not let this Cult of Personality delude us into misplaced loyalty. Our loyalty should be to America, not to any representative of America..I fear the results if that changes.
