    Al Gore has continued to call for reduced energy consumption. Perhaps he should start with his own home. Physician, heal thyself.

    Well, it looks like the elite want to save the energy for themselves. Do as I say, not do.

    You must have been listening to that right-wing god Rush Limbauge. This is exactly what he talked about during his second hour today.

    You don't need Limbaugh to see that Gore is a hypocrite.

    I disagree that Gore is a hypocrite. And, even if he is, it doesn't mean his message is wrong.

    "The comparison proves nothing about Gore..."

    Except that like most liberals, he doesn't follow his own advice.:BangHead:

    I disagree with your disageerance. This MSM article isn't even three months old:

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/editorials/2006-08-09-gore-green_x.htm

    And he responded by increasing his personal consumption. Either Gore himself doesn't believe in his "theories" or he expects everybody else to be like Paramount Classics and offset his carbons for him.

    You ought to see his buddy John Edward's crib. He even clear-cut forest land to build it, and it's enormous.

    You gotta love these long driveways these "men of the people" have. I guess he needs to keep that "other America" at bay, eh ?

    They're BOTH hypocrites. It's just a plot to further a socialized transportation & housing grab.

    I struggle to believe it is necessary to spell this out but when these folks make an attempt to further their agenda on high moral grounds but fail to live by thost moral grounds themselves, then they have no moral ground on which to stand, and should remain silent.

    That does not determine the validity of their argument but it does bring into question just how much of what they say do they really believe. For if they really believed what they say with as much passion then they would live it. How can someone critcize the character of someone who drives big SUV's and supports logging but clear out anough forestry to build a 28000 sq ft home which is unnecessary and simply a luxery even by conservatives standards.

    They have now lost any room to criticize others publically and openly. Actualy it does call into the question of the validity of the arguments because those who are making them do not appear to believe them also.
