    Well, not part of the OP but if someone starts a thread asking whether or not Cheney has profited from the war my answer would be YES.

    That's another bad analogy, why would you listen to someone who has no credibility?

    Also, the EPA should be enjoined from enforcing any carbon-related regulations until granted specific authority to do so by law. That's independent of global warming. Only a crazy society would give unelected bureaucrats the authority to seize control of major elements of industrialized society without specific authority from the elected representatives.

    And that permission from the politicians should await the resolution of the global warming hoax.


    If he deliberately lied yes he should be prosecuted.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Al Gore presenting and narrating this movie was certain to politicize the cause. No?

    Anybody could see that coming! So clearly that all involved should be ashamed of themselves.

    Absolutely not. That's not the sort of thing the Senate should be bothering with and wasting our tax payers money on, regardless if its right or left.

    So you're saying that people should lie to the Senate whenever they want and face no consequences?

    If you prosecuted every politician for lying there would be none left, it isn't just Al Gore.

    Works for me.

    The Messiah should be impeached because he repeated, at least eight times, that the health debacle....er debate would be on C-SPAN. He didn't make it happen.

    You would be so partisan that you want the President impeached because the health care debate wasn't on C-SPAN; you're such a joke.

    True, that is a bit far-fetched, and I doubt anywhere near impeachment worthy.

    But thing is, he didn't have the power to make that decision, so he shouldn't have made out like he did.

    Was disingenuous of him, at the least.
