I think it’s healthy to want to be the best at something, to someone, for just a time in life--being it’s so short. Especially if it means betterment of a person’s ability to love, grow, & prosper in a community or team effort, etc, as others have somewhat stated.
And Ess, you are the best study & néodfréond of Old English I’ve read or been acquainted with in words...most interested parties of OE “met the firedrake” eons ago, so it’s nice to have a living person to exchange interests with on occasion.
Obama can have an opinion, but he has yet to top Gore as the International Man About the Global Warm-up.
“My fellow Americans, 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 exception of the will to act. That's a renewable resource. Let's renew it.”(Gore-wiki)
Ok, THAT statement above is annoying and arrogant. “We need to solve the climate crisis.” Can we make the earth rotate in the opposite direction, too? ok, and still live
Gore is HOT! He’s the BEST episodic broadcaster since Orson Welles!!
Shame on him for being such a sizzler in the spotlight. Glaciers are not safe while he’s on the planet.
Gore’s movement helped earn him the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize…"for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change’ (which is code for: Being able to lay perfect bricks of steaming bull hockey,) which ok, Obama received the NPP in 2009 "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." (which is code for: being really good at employing college students to plastermaster Facebook. But Obama hasn’t moved anyone to want to save the planet from “man-made” global combustion, he’s just made a few people hot under the collar. (all quotes on Wiki)
But Gore won numerous awards, and his film?
“[An Inconvenient Truth] also earned $49 million at the box office worldwide, becoming the fifth-highest-grossing documentary film to date in the United States.” That boy’s sure his shoes so shiny the whole globe wears shades when he tap dances.
I’d say his film is the BEST most grossly misguided documentary film in history, despite its placement as 5th at the box office. Who even remembers those other “top” titles?? And who wants another one to top Gore’s?
Not everyone can be the Greatest Show on Earth, but Obama’s gotta ringmaster something.
Just like the oil & railroad tycoons did way back then, and it’s going to take more than Obama to knock them off their rockers. And this is laughable: “There's no reason Europe or China should have the fastest trains, or the new factories that manufacture clean energy products.”
Oh really? No reason at all? I think: We’re second because of Who’s on First. What’s on third will never have a clue and I Don’t Know is voting (and making documentary films.)
Word to my homeboy Al: I had to shovel about a foot of snow off my walk and unbury my car to get church on Sunday. Would you please get yer head outta the polar bear?
