Al Gore as Harold Hill

In case you haven't heard, Al Gore won the Nobel in the second most effective snowjob in the history of the planet. Top of the list in my book is the doozy being pulled over in North Korea.

In a move similar to what we see in The Music Man (If you are unfamiliar with this musical [and if you are here to support Gore that is highly likely] the basis is this. A shyster travels from town to town selling the townfolk musical instruments [to be shipped later] and music lessons [sans instruments] for their children), Al has crafted a web of deceipt (with much help from media) that has convinced the majority of the world it seems. While that musical ended on an up beat (pun intended), with parents thrilled to hear their children make a horrid screeching noise on their instuments, it's clear to the audience that the kids can't play their instruments worth a damn.

If you, as a believer of the Gore lie, are shaking your head in disgust, you are one of them. Hate to break that to you, and you won't believe me anyway. I'm the people in the audience watching you, the small town nobody, who so desparetely want to believe in something, that you'll bite on whatever is presented to you with the most pomp.

Have you ever seen one of these shows where an interviewer stops "random" peole on the street and asks them stupid-easy (TM) questions that they can't answer? I'm starting to think they aren't choosing the dumbest people they can find. I think they might actually represent the majority of people.

The process has to be conscious, or it would not be carried out with sufficient precision, but it also has to be unconscious, or it would bring with it a feeling of falsity and hence of guilt.... To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies--all this is indispensably necessary.
--George Orwell, 1984

When you tell one lie, it leads to another
So you tell two lies to cover each other
Then you tell three lies and, Oh Brother,
You're in trouble up to your ears!

So you tell four lies to try to protect you
Then you tell five lies so folks won't suspect you
Then you tell six lies and you'll collect
A life filled with worries and fears

'Cause you can't remember how many lies you've told
And half the things you say aren't true
And sometime you'll slip up, you'll trip up and then
Whatever will become of you?

So you lie and lie without even trying
And each lie you tell will keep multiplying
'Till the whole wide world will know you're lying
Then you'll be
And you should!
When you lie, you're closing the door
On everything good

I definitely agree with you. I think there are more of us out here than you think. (I hope!) I blame a lot of it on the media, and the people who unquestioningly trust them. I do think, though, that the truth will come out here in the next few years as more and more scientists step forward to disprove his "truth."

Also, I host a free giveaway every week on my site. They're for products that are made in the USA. I make no money off of this - I just want to see more attention given to these products. (and more jobs stay in America!) Come check it out!

Thank you!

Thanks for the comments Patriot. I'm a cynic, so I'll hold that people like us a a minority :D

Pretty cool idea you have at that blog of yours. Even though you don't make any money off of it, I hope that the prizes are at least donated by the companies. We'd be better off if more people were active about the things that are important to them, like you are being.

Have you read "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton? Somewhere in the author's notes (I have the book on audio so I can't look it up that easily) along the lines of his original idea was to write a Global Warming disaster novel but the more research he did, the more things didn't line up so he went away and wrote Prey instead. Then he came back and wrote "State of Fear" with the whole presence reversed.

Over on his web site he has a collection of some of his essays and speeches. My favorite is Aliens Cause Global Warming but be sure to read The Case for Skepticism on Global Warming and Testimony before the United States Senate.
