Al Gore was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today.
The Nobel Peace Prize committee follows these standards in choosing a Winner: “the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity among nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
So, I am waiting a beat and then saying with a huge mixture of disgust and disbelief: “AL GORE???” I mean, are you kidding??? AL GORE? Make that disgust, disbelief and disappointment. Although the Nobel Peace Prize has become somewhat of a joke – Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin, Kofi Annan, The International Atomic Energy Agency – it also heralds some of the most influential Humanitarians – Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, the Dalai Lama, Shirin Ibadi, Theodore Roosevelt and more. I would even acknowledge the efforts of Jimmy Carter who makes a much better peacemaker than politician but the whole Al Gore Propaganda of Hysteria is just ridiculous. And now we promote peace through propaganda and promotion of worldwide hysteria based on half ass facts that he does not even understand? He is not exactly a great poster child for minimizing carbon footprints on the planet with his monthly electrical bills that exceed a normal American family’s bills for an entire year. How ’bout some windmills and solar panels, Al?
