The Goracle Demonstrates How to Get Rich Without Being Useful


Do you think there's something wrong with being active in business in this country?

isn't The Goracle's only defense against observations that he's been profiteering mightily from the global warming hoax. There is also his claim that all the loot goes into a nonprofit, as if that doesn't mean it goes on from there to finance his jet-set lifestyle. Pro Patria reports:

So just what has Al Gore gained from his Big Green escapades? According to public disclosure information, Gore was worth somewhere between $1 million and $2 million in 2000. Not quite eight years later, Gore is estimated to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million. While I ordinarily would applaud such financial gains from such a short period of time, I can't help but to question just how it happened. When you look out at what Al Gore has done, it's evident that he figured out on a way to capitalize on the creation of Big Green while becoming the official doomsday prophet that has helped to build Big Green into the monetary powerhouse that it has become.

Imagine how rich he'll be after his Kleiner Perkins outfit cashes in from the global warming legislation he has been pushing on Capitol Hill. Unfortunately, unlike the capitalist exploiters of yesteryear, who gave us railroads and steel and automobiles, crony capitalist Al Gore produces nothing of any value whatsoever.

In other environmental news, Gore has declared that our new national healthcare system will be used to provide all Americans with specialized genetic therapy, developed with money invested by Kleiner Perkins, that will allow us to adapt to the allegedly warmer climate. To show he's sincere, Prince Albert underwent the treatment himself:

Cool pick of the Goracle. How the media managed to make this guy appear intelligent is a super-human feat.

Bu..liberals are allowed to earn a profit. After all, they are better people and deserve it.

Also... paying taxes is the job of lesser people - like evil conservatives. That is why Democrats don't pay them.

Because Democrats don't pay their taxes is a huge reason why most Treasury and DHS appointed positions are unfilled at this time. Obama can't find any Democrats who have paid their taxes.

The liberal bootlicking news media would show him as aknight in shinning armor going forth to slay the dragon of global warming we see him as what he realy is A RABBER BARON MAKING HIS MILLIONS OFF THE BANK ACCOUNTS OF PATHETIC LIBERAL FOOLS

Speaking of DHS its a disaster waiting to happen. Seeing Crappy Nappy trying to reassure all of us they on top of the Swine Flu epidemic sent chills down my spine. I would be like putting Al Gore in as Secretary of Defense. All I could think is if this is 1918 all over again, the body bag factories need to crank up production 1,000%.

So, the Prophet puts his profits into a non-profit. Or would that be a 'non-prophet'? And since the Prophet is putting his profits into a 'non-prophet', and the Prophet is raking in the cash, is he trying to tell us that he's the 'non-profit' 'non-prophet' prophet?

I feel like Dr. Seuss.

I work with people who use words like "brilliant" and "genius" to describe AlGore (and they're actually serious). Some of them have also said the economy is going to be alright as soon as Obama starts sending out the stimulus checks.

Getting rich without being useful?

Sounds like 2/3 of wall street and the so called "financial industry" (otherwise known as wealth extraction industry), health insurance companies and at least 1/2 of our military industrial complex... yes the one Eisenhower, a conservative, mentioned. Oh yes, the Fox News and talk raidio batch of rabble rousers... the ones VanHelsing aspires to be like...they are payed very, VERY well to have "fair and balanced opinions" or to be "truth detectors"... and as one can see from the typical comments on this site... the rabble is indeed roused...

Did you guys hear something? A screech owl maybe? I don't know but it was high pitched and sounded kind of hollow.

You suffer from a form of "the longing for the mud". Go dig a ditch, or use a bucket for a toilet and you will soon get over it.

Wait a minute! According to the liberal religion, if a person becomes rich then another person or persons must become poor. Al Gore made some people poor in this country. Well, I don't know about you, but that just doesn't seem fair!

Al Gore motto BEG,BARROW or STEAL and Gore would rather steal all he has earned the dishonest way

Yes, you are SO versed in what it means to be a liberal, bald eagle (are you really bald? so sorry)

You must know a lot about using a toilet as a bucket KHarn, I guess it must have helped you get over something if this is your advice.
