Elections Have Consequences

Michelle Malkin has a post about some comments Barbara Boxer made to James Inhofe during the Goracle testimony today. I saw a clip of the exchange on one of the networks, but did not catch the CNN reaction to it. Here is the transcript of Boxer's comments. Michelle has CNN's reaction (the anchor cheered) and video.

(After Boxer squabbles about the length of Inhofe's questions to Gore...)

Inhofe: Why don't we do this? At the end, you can have as much time as you want to answer all of the questions...

Boxer: No, that isn't the rule. You're not making the rules. You used to when you had this (holding up the gavel). You don't do this anymore. Elections have consequences. (Audience cheers).

Followed the link from Malkin to Gore explaining that he's not changing the way he lives, he's "carbon neutral."

I wish I could afford to be carbon neutral.

I realize that there are people with whom this will play well, like he and his buds are actually doing something other than playing musical chairs because they can afford to play musical chairs.

All I can say is it must be nice not to have to cut back or conserve or actually make changes in your lifestyle and still get the street creds.

Mac Lorry:

Well it's true elections do have consequences. While the science of climate change is looking to do a 180 in the next year or too, it may be too late to stop the political and economic consequences of the environmental extremist movement for which Gore is just a useful fool.

If Algore went to the closest farm and ate horse shit you idiot democrats would be sharing it. Talk about sheep following the leader off a cliff. Wake up, he's not even a leader, just a nut. 17,000 climate experts say so.

Allen:

If Gore wasn't so heavy invested in two company's that have "global warming" products for people to buy, and if he was completely quiet, I just might think people was causing global warming.

What does it take for people to realize that this planet earth goes through warm and cold cycles? In the mean time, send the warming my way, I hate playing golf when it's cold out.

If there is three demo's and three repugs in a room and someone farts, you have 6 different opinions on who did it. Christ, get a life people.

And yes, elections do have consequences, and the repugs can't handle that they lost. Well, in two years that may be reversed. But I always thought, (how naive)that our elected employees were to work for the American people, not the fucking party lines that has happened for the last 6 years.

Mitchell:

Instead of buying carbon offsets, can I meet with Father Gore, and have my confession instead?

Will I still receive absolution from His Eminence?

Albert thinks Jesus would purchase carbon credits if he were here today, rushing from carpentry jobs in his large, polluting utlity van, too rushed to minister to the sick, since he has to pay his high taxes, but with enough money left over to buy credits from Mr. Gore, so, he is a religious man after all.

Boxer will lose when she next stands for election. Rumer has it the Austrian Oak wants her job. Want to bet algore is made to look the fool that he is before the year is out? Real science says he is full of shit. Under Gores system, some are just more equal than others. Why don't you fucking idiot liberals go try to convert some Muslims? Cowards.

Scrapiron:

When you listen to the Algore-arbge just think back or research to the 1994-95 time frame when he was spilling garbage across the country in support of an organization called 'WorldCom'. People got suckered by Algore-arbge and lost their entire life savings and retirement accounts. I remember him flinging his arms in the air and screaming 'we're in the information age'. Yep, he kept the information that everyone involved in WorldCom was a criminal. They (including Algor-arbge) got rich and lots of working class Americans got bankrupt. I know they spent the next four years destroying records of their crimes but they couldn't have got them all. Research and you'll come up with some film that will water your eyes.

Anyone that buys into his garbage today will end up worse than bankrupt. What is the first thing the communist did when the democrats accomplished the 'cut and run' in Vietnam? Rounded up and shot the educated of the country, put millions in prison and re-education camps where millions just happpened to die. All in all three to five million souls lost their lives at the hands of the democrats. That's a lot of guilt, maybe that's why most of them are insane or working on it.

Most of those who read here at this site more than likely think you are little more than an obnoxious asshole with nothing of substance to offer. If you have ever had a word of knowledge in you, it is still your best kept secret.

The level of respect afforded Lorie by the people here far exceeds your own. Which is so very easy as there is no respect for you here at all.

You Kos rejects need to find a new home. We're tired of seeing you take your public dumps here.

langtry:

"Carbon Neutral" is a canard designed to allow rich environmentalists like Al Gore and Laurie David to continue to live their lives in a way that is in complete opposition to their politics. So the rich can buy their way out of having to abide by stringent environmental codes, while the rest of us have to give up?

Al Gore and his ilk are asses!

Scrapiron,

The economy of the US ultimately depends on the resources of the planet

It is the earth that makes an economy possible. If our planet isn't healthy, we lose many of those materials on which our economy depends. And if the services provided by the planet become degraded, our health and economy suffer as well.

You "30 Percenters" may continue to deny reality but the rest of us have already started accepting responsibility for our actions

You holy grail of money is suffering because of your ignorance but you don't get it do you?

This is why Republicans in Congress disgust me. Inhofe should have grabbed that gavel from Boxer and jammed it down her filthy throat. How dare that jumped up bitch stand on her hind legs and bray about "consequences" when her morally bankrupt party has gotten away with lie after lie after lie for years. A real man would have backhanded Boxer into next week. The GOP is nothing but a bunch of girlie men.

And CB, for all your ignorant whining about "it is the earth that makes an ecomony possible," I'm willing to bet that the prosperity of whatever worthless hellhole you come from is being bankrolled by the USA, whether from shouldering your defense burden or providing you with products and services. So take your global warming cultist crap and STFU.

I got one Taltos... human labor.

It's a natural resource of the first order.

Global Warming impacts it in a huge way because the "fixes" depend on inhibiting economic development that inhibits efficient labor. Stuff like "we only buy carbon neutral gold mined by happy primitive peoples in idylic natural settings using a pie tin to wash the gravel from a stream. They can hardly get enough to feed themselves this way but that's okay because their illiterate wife and underfed baby are breathing the smoke from the twigs and rubbish she collected to cook their meals. It's all very quaint and primative."
