Sugo, Yugo, and Gore


Oscar... Check
Nobel Peace Prize.... Coming in the Fall 07
President of the United States..... Hopefully coming in the Fall of 08

Gore's global warming doc wins Oscar:
"LOS ANGELES - 'An Inconvenient Truth,' the documentary that turned former vice president Al Gore's power-point presentation on global warming into an engaging and entertaining film, won the Oscar Sunday night."
......

"My fellow Americans," Gore said to laughter from the crowd. "People all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It's not a political issue, it's a moral issue. We have everything we need to get started with the possible will to act. That's a renewable resource. Let's renew it."
and

Al Gore, Rock Star:
"'He is more popular now than he ever was in office, and he knows it,' says Laurie David, one of the producers of 'Inconvenient Truth' and a Hollywood environmental activist (and wife of 'Seinfeld' co-creator Larry David) who has traveled around the world promoting the film with Gore. 'He's a superhero now.'"


Oh, and to those that say this whole 'Global Warming' thing is made up by socialist who want to crush capitalism.... NOT, you dumb fucks. There's tons of money to be had and 'bidness' schools are way ahead of you:

It's not easy being green:
Earlier this month, the highly-rated Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the U.S. launched its response to the problem, the Laboratory for Sustainable Business.

Interactive computer-based simulations will let students to play the role of entrepreneurs seeking to maximize their profits investing in companies that do not harm the environment."

I love when intertubes articles validate my opines. I've been saying this every since I entered the work force:

Meetings make us dumber, study shows:
"People have a harder time coming up with alternative solutions to a problem when they are part of a group, new research suggests."

More work related news. NO MORE ASSHOLES!!!:

Crusade against the jerk at work / Some companies seek to filter out toxic employees

"I am disgusted with the norm in business and sports that if you are a really big winner, you can get away with being a creep," Sutton said. "My dream is that leaders of all organizations will eventually treat acting like an -- hole as a sign of bad performance rather than an excuse for good performance."

Wheeeeeeeeeeee

My Little Tricycle Can Go 110 Mph / Meet the Spyder, a wicked 3-wheeled motorcycle/car mutant to make your id -- and your crotch -- tingle:
"Have you seen this thing? It's new. It's a giant, powerful, gas-powered trike. It's a three-wheeler, a Y-framer with two wheels up front, one giant one in back, ridden like a motorcycle but which apparently has comfort and stability approaching a car while still giving you (they say) the wind-in-your-face thrill of a bike but is roughly 50 times more stable and safe and easy to ride and you are therefore much less likely to accidentally lay it down while taking a sharp 40 mph turn in the city and lose your kneecap."

How big would the lemon need to be?

Tire-sized calamari rings? Half-ton squid reeled in:
"WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A fishing crew has caught a colossal squid that could weigh a half-ton and prove to be the biggest specimen ever landed, a fisheries official said Thursday.

If calamari rings were made from the squid they would be the size of tractor tires, one expert said."

...And what goes good with calamari?

"In our collective culinary imagination, there is a mythical Italian grandmother perpetually simmering a pot of ragu"

Of course Gore's more popular now than when he was in office. People who are in office have to make decisions, with which some people inevitably disagree. Today, Gore can fly around, give speeches, and make the case for his sainthood, while the loving media tags along. Since he isn't a "partisan politician" anymore, they don't even feel an obligation to provide balance.

"obligation to provide balance."

So I see you are of the 'fair and balanced' FAUX News crowd. *Sigh* (Here's where I try to reason with such types, but we all know how well that works).

Before I get started I want to provide a balance by saying that that is one racist P.O.S. website you've got going there, Nick. Black and Brown people frighten you don't they, Nick? 'Cause FAUX news told you so, aye, Nick?

The 'ol liberal media, huh, Nick? You guys love that myth don't you. It is only liberal when it is fact based, Nick. Ever since you ReThugs discovered that a free press was the greatest hurdle to your special type of facism you've been beating that liberal media drum ad nauseum.

Well, Mr. 30 percent Nick, You may have totally corrupted the TV and print media, but we've got your ass here on the intertubes.

The news media should be 'fair' but why the fuck do you think it needs balance? If we are discussing slavery do we need a counter point of someone who is pro-slavery? (I bet I know your answer on that one)

Your hate for Gore (and thus all liberals) is because somebody told you to hate Gore. The reasons given to you are complete B.S. but you are too damn scared to think for yourself. Oh, if you only had the sensitivity of the cave men in the Insurance commercials.... but you don't...

See you're the fringe, Nick. If you were to be honest about what you really thought about things you know damn well that the vast, VAST majority of America would reject your ideals thus relegating you null and void.

Turn off O'Really and Sean and the rest on the propaganda channel. Try some reason, instead of hate.

See, 'hate' is the only thing my truck wants to drag.

Fuck off, you racist piece of shit.
