A Post Apocalyptic: A Tale of Two Totally Different Types- from Blasted Reality


Photo: Al Gore, our 45th Veep and legal President of the United States, 2000 election.

Most of us are familiar with Gore's work on Global Warming and his documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth". We also are quite familiar with his 2000 presidential win that was stolen from him, the American voters got shafted, and our nation plunged into war, trillions in debt and shamed before the world.

"He was the Democratic nominee for President in the 2000 election — one of the most controversial and highly contested presidential elections in U.S. history. Despite the fact that he won a plurality of the popular vote, with over half a million more votes than the Republican candidate George W. Bush, Gore ultimately lost the electoral college. A month of ballot recounts and court challenges in the state of Florida led the U. S. Supreme Court to end the highly disputed contest with its final ruling of Bush v. Gore, handing the electoral college victory, and consequently the presidency, to Bush.[1]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Gore

We are also familiar with the New Orleans/Gulf Coast Katrina disaster and subsequent debacle that continues today. And familiar to the point of nausea with our president's silly photo ops and lying, ridiculous statements, including those during the New Orleans catastrophe.

Being a resident of the Gulf Coast and deeply concerned about the tragedy unfolding there during and after the hurricane, I kept abreast of all the news articles I could find in the media and on the internet. One news tidbit I did NOT see during that time and with which I was NOT familiar was the personal involvement of Al Gore in the midst of that tragedy.

UNTIL I was surfing Reverend X's blog, Blasted Reality, and read the following post about Al Gore. While Bush was posturing, armed mercenaries independent of local law enforcement agencies were patrolling the streets of an American city, FEMA was turning away rescue and aid groups and trucks loaded with water and supplies, people were stranded, the dead were floating in the streets, patients were dying in hospitals and nursing homes, GORE took action at his own expense and declined interviews so his actions would not be politicized.

Question #1: Does this photo op give you a melting case of the warm fuzzies?
Question #2: Where did they get the big US flag to use as a backdrop for the photo op, carefully flood stained?
Question #3: After Bush re-boarded Air Force One, how long did it take him to hit the shower and wash off the sweat and touch of the hoi polloi from his elite body?

Comparing Bush and Gore is like comparing a donkey's arse with the Mona Lisa. There is no comparison!

Cheers!

I've always thought that Al Gore was a rare bird when it came to being a politician (or even a human being for that matter). He's honestly genuine. I don't think the man could spin a line of B.S. if his life depended on it.

Peace,
Fiona
