Given that it's owned by Qatar, chances are, much of its funding has come from oil. Oil money, probably from American companies, which again, I don't agree with. I would much rather see domestic oil production employing Americans and keeping our money here.
Al Gore won an Oscar for a documentary that perpetuated the myth of manmade global warming. Global warming is allegedly caused by American factories and American vehicles (not the pollutants from any of these things in other countries) which use petroleum for many purposes. Use of the fossil fuel, petroleum (oil) is killing our planet, according to Gore.
If so, then why did you accept money that came from the ravishing of Mother Earth, Mr. Gore?
I can answer my own question. He feels he's entitled. He's better than the rest of us, because he's rich and has been a fixture in Washington all of his life.
Gore grew up a Senator's son. He went to Harvard, served during the Vietnam War (I do thank him for his service in this regard.) and must have spent about five minutes as an investigative reporter in Tennessee before his own House of Representatives run in 1976. Once he got back to Washington in an elected office, he stayed there, all the way through the end of his term as Vice President in 2001.
He would have only left Washington, as an elected official, in 2009, if he had his way, due to Presidential term limits. That would have given him 32 years as an elected official in Washington, D.C.
That's a lifetime. It is far too long for anyone to be away from his/her district or state to be able to consider himself a representative of the people who still live there.
I know some of you are asking me about Chuck Grassley right now. I like Chuck Grassley. He's responsive, but no, I don't think his time in the Senate alone should total 36 years. No one's should. I think we are fortunate that Grassley at least visits every county every year and that his ego is not as inflated as Gore's.
