Gore hates seniors? In 1993, Clinton/Gore targeted seniors for a special tax increase. Clinton/Gore raised taxes on all seniors who receive social security benefits and then they did nothing to protect social security. Gore has nothing to offer but, fear itself.

Fishing industries have been forced to slow down production We have become more dependent on foreign oil. Many ranchers have been run off their land. Farmers are being regulated out of business. The economy isn't so great when it takes both father and mother to make ends meet. Prices are much higher and our dollar has shrunk considerably.



Education of children is shameful in a country as rich as ours. We have a military stripped of preparedness and pride. Morality has been on the decline. Our Second Amendment Rights are threatened with extinction. Our right to own property is being threatened.



Our health care system is in shambles by threats of socialized medical care. We have seen a total lack of respect for our legal system. Our national pride is diminished. So when you go to the polls to vote, consider what the conditions are and who has caused this to happen.

BY SUSAN LEE

Monday, September 11, 2000 12:01 a.m. EDT



Last week I found myself trying to understand Al Gore's Social Security reform. (I know, it's an exciting life.) The plan comes in two parts. One does absolutely nothing about the impending boomer crunch except to make it worse, but the other made my hair frizz.



The scary part is called Retirement Savings Plus (although the money can also be used to pay for college or buy a house). It provides for individual savings accounts but--oh, mama--listen to how Mr. Gore wants to fund them.



As I read it, everybody and anybody who earns less than $100,000 a year could set aside some of their own money and then have government step in with a big fat subsidy to total $2,000 a year a person. Lower-income people could contribute up to $500 a year and have government match every dollar with $3. Middle-income people could set aside $1,000 and have government match every dollar with another dollar. And upper income people could plop down $1,500 and get 33 cents for every dollar.



Since this sounded like one gargantuan giveaway, I wondered-- as you probably are--how much this would cost. Well, I phoned John Cogan, an economist at the Hoover Institution and the fastest numbers man in theWest. Mr. Cogan is also advising the Bush campaign, so I figured he would have the figures. He was ready for me.



Using Internal Revenue Service data, Mr. Cogan estimates that more than 100 million people would be eligible and, if they all maxed out on government money (which of course is money that originally belonged to you and me), the total tab would come to $160 billion. That's correct--$160 billion for one year, or roughly 16% of current federal tax revenue.



I started making shrieking-type noises, but Mr. Cogan--who is fair and calm--pointed out that not every eligible person would participate. So, assuming the same rate as the rate for people who elect to participate in private pensions (about 75%), Mr. Cogan tap-tapped on his calculator for a new number. And it wasn't all that comforting, either--$120 billion, or 12% of federal tax revenue.



Is Mr. Gore out of his mind? Maybe. At the very least, he must be mathematically challenged. He has estimated the cost of his program at $35 billion. So I asked Mr. Cogan what the deal was. Again, in his typically fair and calm fashion, he speculated that Mr. Gore, quite possibly, has not fully disclosed his restrictions on eligibility. A Gore aide did mention last week that people earning less than $5,000 a year, full-time students and retired people would be excluded. But, as Mr. Cogan noted, those exclusions aren't sufficient to even come close to $35 billion.



Instead, Mr. Cogan offered a scenario that the Gore camp may have in mind, given the fact that lower income people would have difficulty in ponying up $500 a year. Mr. Gore's $35 billion would be consistent with a plan in which only 5% of lower-income households and 50% of middle- and upper-income households participate. Simply put, no matter how one slices and dices the numbers, the only way to get the numbers down to Mr. Gore's estimate is to exclude those who really need the boost.



But there's more. Remember the other part of Mr. Gore's Social Security reform? The one that just leaves the system unreformed? This part calls for government to use the Social Security surplus to pay down the debt, thereby saving on interest costs. These savings would be used to "buy" government bonds that would be put in a "lock box" until the boomers start to retire and the system faces bankruptcy. So how much are we talking about? Mr. Cogan's lowest estimate is $34 trillion.



More shrieking from me. But, as Mr. Cogan pointed out, the exact figure really doesn't matter. This scheme is just pie-in-the-sky, since no assets are created ;(printing up bonds is just a paper transaction). So what happens when the bill for Social Security becomes due? Mr. Cogan, still remarkably fair and calm, said that there were three choices: Either taxes would have to be raised by 25%, or benefits would have to be cut by 25%, or the bonds would have to be rolled over for another generation of taxpayers to redeem by--you guessed it--paying more taxes or enjoying less benefits.



In other words--and I was really squeaking here-- Mr. Gore's retirement plan will generate a total tax increase of 37% to 41%? "Call it 40%," said Mr. Cogan.



I was speechless at this point, so Mr. Cogan added that he thought the whole thing was a liberal fantasy, and there was no way that Mr. Gore could enact such an enormous entitlement program. Well, I think Mr.Cogan is being just a little too fair and a little too calm. The "creator" of the Internet has had one fantasy too many for my taste.

About intelligence between the two candidates



-Like George W. Bush, Gore has a degree from Harvard... but, Al Gore flunked out of Religion School and flunked out of Law School.

-By comparison... George W. Bush has a degree from both Yale and a MBA degree from Harvard!

-Al Gore's Harvard undergraduate transcript is riddled with C's, including a C- in introductory economics, a D in one science course and a C+ in another: F

-In his sophomore year Gore's grades were lower than on ANY semester recorded on GWB's Yale transcript.

-In 1971 Gore enrolled at Vanderbilt Divinity School as a graduate student and received 5 F's out of 8 courses during 3 semesters. by the way, Gore did not receive a degree from the school.

-Al Gore did not graduate from Vanderbilt Law School where he enrolled for a brief time and again received his fairshare of C's. (Yet when introduced by PBS news anchor Gwen Ifill as a "graduate of Vanderbilt Law School" Mr. Gore failed to point this out.

-Of course with such sterling qualifications one can excuse Mr. Gore for not wanting to inject a little honesty into his campaign. And all across America if you listen carefully you'll hear the lowing of a lot of duped sheep. Wake up America-Nov 7th will impact all of us in a very bad way if we don't!

Some Al Gore tall tales



-In February of 1988 the Washington Post quoted Al Gore that he been shot at in Vietnam. It wasn't true. That claim was shot down by Newsweek in December of 1999.

-In April 1988 Al Gore told a League of Women Voters gathering that he had written the law of Superfund. Recently he changed his story because the real author of the Superfund law was James Florio.

-On October 30, 1992, Gore denied that there was a dump on his father's farm, but national television showed the pictures.

-On January 24, 1997, regarding the Buddhist Temple event, Al Gore said on the Today Show that "I did not know it was a fundraiser."

-On December 15, 1997, Time magazine reported that Al Gore claimed that he and Tipper had served as role models for the Eric Segal novel, Love Story. That wasn't true.

-On March 9, 1999, Al Gore told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that "I took the initiative in creating the Internet." It wasn't true. The Department of Defense got the Internet underway in 1969. Al Gore was 21 in 1969.

-On April 25, 1999, Al Gore told the Detroit chapter of the NAACP that his father was a fighter for civil rights, but he didn't tell them that his father had voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

-On June 1, 1999, at a Women for Gore event, Al Gore said he'd always been pro- choice, but that wasn't true. As a Congressman he had voted pro-life on many occasions.

-On October 14, 1999, Al Gore's website proclaimed that he'd worked for the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty for 20 years, but that claim wasn't true. As late as 1992 Al Gore had opposed that Treaty on the Senate floor.

-On November 1, 1999, Time magazine reported that Al Gore had claimed to have authored the Earned Income Tax Credit. That wasn't true. The Earned Income Tax Credit was passed into law in 1975 and Al Gore didn't even enter Congress until 1977.

-On November 24, 1999, The New York Times reported that Al Gore claimed to have been a co-sponsor of the McCain Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Bill. But Al Gore never served in the Senate with Senator Feingold. It wasn't true.

-On December 23, 1999, ABC News reported that Al Gore flatly declared that "I live on a farm today." Al Gore lived then and he lives now at the Naval Observatory on Massachusetts Avenue in the District of Columbia. The Observatory is not a farm. Al Gore's statement wasn't true.

-On February 4, 2000, The New York Times reported that Al Gore claimed to have spoken to a crowd of 3,000 people, but the room at which he spoke at had a maximum capacity of 1,200. It wasn't true.

-On February 15, 2000, Al Gore asserted that he had never grown tobacco on the farm that he owned in Tennessee, but the Wall Street Journal in 1995 and Cox News Service in 1999 reported that tobacco had indeed been grown on that farm.

-On April 11, 2000, Al Gore was reported by the Boston Globe to be trumpeting that he had his own meeting with Gorbachev, but the Globe reported that 26 other members of Congress had been present at that mass meeting. It just wasn't true.

-In June of 2000 Al Gore said "I introduced the very first free t.v. legislation in the Senate in 1988," but more than 150 bills on that subject had been previously introduced in previous Congresses. It just wasn't true.

-In his acceptance speech at the August Democratic Convention, Al Gore said that the Bush tax cut would benefit the middle class by only $.62 per week. But that wasn't true.

-On August 28th Al Gore told a gathering of Florida seniors that his dog, Shilo, and his mother-in-law took the same arthritis drug, but that his mother-in-law paid three times as much as the dog did and that wasn't true. Al Gore won't even answer questions about whether his mother-in-law pays anything for her drugs.

-On September 22nd Al Gore told the Associated Press that he'd been part of a discussions on strategic petroleum reserve since the days it was first established. But that reserve was established in 1975 and Al Gore did not enter Congress until 1977.

-In the weekend before the first presidential debate, Al Gore complained that he had never been invited to appear on a PBS documentary about presidential debates. But PBS officials said they had indeed invited Al Gore and Al Gore's staff confirmed that he had rejected the invitation.

-At the presidential debate on October 3, 2000, Al Gore claimed that a girl had to stand in the classroom of Sarasota High School and was still standing, but it wasn't true. The principal of the high school went on national television to say so.

-In the same debate, Al Gore said that he had worked with former President Ronald Reagan on defense issues, but that wasn't true. Al Gore had opposed Ronald Reagan on defense issues.

-In the same debate, Al Gore was asked what had meant when he attacked Governor Bush as lacking the experience to be President. Al Gore told moderator Jim Lehrer he had never said such a thing, but he had. And so had his staff on many occasions. It wasn't true.

-In the same debate, Al Gore said he took a risk in asking the former Prime Minister of Russia Chernomyrdin to become involved in negotiating an end of the conflict in Kosovo. The New York Times reported that the Russian President Yeltsin had designated Mr. Chernomyrdin as special envoy to the Balkans and had done so two weeks before Chernomyrdin had met with Mr. Gore. Mr. Gore's claim simply wasn't true.

-In the same debate, Mr. Gore said that he had accompanied Jamie Lee Witt, the head of the federal government's emergency response team, to catastrophic fires in Texas, but that wasn't true. He didn't accompany Mr. Witt and he didn't go to those fires. He made it up. It wasn't true.

-The New York Times quotes a professor of psychology in saying that Al Gore's record is "like the false memory syndrome where people end up believing that they were abducted by aliens."

-The head of the California Democratic Party says that he cannot explain Al Gore's behavior because he is not a "psychiatrist."

-The Washington Post quotes a veteran democrat as saying that Al Gore's record is "dangerous because it reinforces a dangerous perception that Gore is just another arrogant politician and we have 8 more years of lies ahead of us."

-Former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley asked Al Gore at a New Hampshire debate "Why should we believe you will tell the truth as President if you don't tell the truth as a candidate?" Why indeed? In matters large and matters small, in matters three decades old and three days old, Al Gore has not told the truth as Senator, as a Vice President, as a nominee for President. Al Gore has not told the truth.

-In front of 50 million Americans in the first presidential debate on at least six separate matters, Al Gore did not tell the truth. If there is one thing certain about Campaign 2000 it's that you cannot trust Al Gore. You simply cannot trust Al Gore.

Vice President Gore will be advertising a veritable candy store of tax-relief goodies when he releases his long-awaited budget plan today. But after reading the fine print, you'd almost expect someone like Mark Green to be calling for Gore's arrest on a bait-and-switch rap. And this is from a guy who's already carrying too much credibility baggage.



The veep will be promising federal breaks on everything from college tuition to the marriage penalty to retirement plans to pre-school programs to the time parents spend at home with their kids. Trouble is, even with a $2.2 trillion budget surplus expected over the next 10 years, the Democratic standard-bearer couldn't possibly pay for all these goodies with the expected revenues.



Even he knows that. Which is why each of his promises comes with an asterisk attached. Follow the footnotes and you find:

-Gore's promise of relief for the marriage tax penalty excludes marginal income for families who own their own homes.

-And it excludes those who make more than $60,000. (A veteran New York City teacher, for example.

-When Gore calls for "universal" pre-school programs, he defines "universal" to exclude 3-year-olds - a healthy chunk of the pre-K population.

-His college-tuition credit is limited to $10,000 in expenses per family.

-His tax bonbon for stay-at-home parents applies only those with babies under a year old.



But the disclaimers on Gore's savings plan, Retirement Savings Plus, take the cake. As illustrated in The Wall Street Journal, the plan offers tax exemptions for savings up to $2,000. Gore's federal candy store kicks in matching funds, based on family income. Now, ready for the catches? To qualify:



-You can't make more than $50,000 a year. (There's that teacher again.)

-You can't be retired.

-You can't be a full-time student.

-You can't take full advantage of the program until 2009 (when Gore assuredly would be gone from office).

-The kicker: To stay within budget, only half of those eligible can participate to the maximum extent possible.



At the end of the day, we figure there are about seven people in Idaho who might get something out of Gore's plans. Certainly few New York teachers. Gore backers, to be sure to accuse Gov. George W. Bush of similar budgetary ploys. And on some points, they might be right. But Gore, not Bush, is the candidate who emphasizes repeatedly that his is the fiscally "responsible" plan. Gore won't bust the budget and "wreck the economy" with imprudent tax cuts. Or so he says.



And Gore is the one who must prove his honesty. Remember when he told investigators that he could remember only one of 23 fund-raising coffee klatches he attended at the White House? Remember his memory loss on whether he knew that that Buddhist temple event was a fund-raiser?



Most of all, remember the one thing for which the Clinton-Gore administration will forever be known: scandals. Now, Americans want to know if Gore, free from the grip of President Clinton, will finally tell the truth. Doesn't look like it.

THE HERALD-NEWS, DAYTON, TENNESSEE, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2000, P. A-4 (reprinted by permission)



Tennessee hasn't had a native son in the White House in more than a century. Certainly most Tennesseans would agree it would be good to have one of our own as president. The question is whether Al Gore is still a Tennessean and whether we can afford for him to be president.



Al Gore is not the man Tennesseans sent to Washington as vice president in 1992. He's certainly not the same man Fourth District voters made the youngest Congressman in decades at the tender age of 28, nor is he the same man Tennessee sent to the U.S. Senate by huge margins in 1984 and 1990. He has abandoned the conservative, Southern values for which we once elected him.



Let's look at some of the changes:



Al Gore once told The Herald-News he was"personally opposed" to abortion. He also said he was against federal funding of abortions. Now Gore has positioned himself as the great champion of abortion rights and even defends the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortions. America's youngest and most defenseless citizens would receive no protection under a Gore presidency.



Ten years ago when Gore last ran for the Senate, The Herald-News supported him, in part because he portrayed himself as a defender of the Second Amendment. Gore was a friend to hunters and sportsmen and considered himself one.



Since then he has changed directions 180 degrees. He now supports national registration and licensure of all guns and all gun owners. He is solidly in the gun control camp that wants to eliminate all private ownership of handguns, semiautomatic rifles and pump shotguns. Of course, the private security forces for the elite would still have easy access to these weapons. Oh, and of course, so would the criminals.



On environmental issues Gore was once essentially mainstream. He believed in common sense EPA regulations and continued private use of public lands by permit. Now when it comes to environmental issues, Gore is on the fringe. He is more closely aligned with Katuah Earth First!, that radical environmentalist, tree-worshiping group that chained themselves to concreted barrels to block access to Watts Bar Nuclear Plat three years ago, than with the average Tennessean.



Gore writes in his book "Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit," "We must make the rescue of the environment the central organizing principle for civilization." Surely we face greater issues than protecting the environment, such as making sure all high school graduates can atleast read


Once Gore told The Herald-News he believed it was an admirable thing for committed parents to educate their children at home for religious or personal reasons. Now Gore supports a National Education Association policy that would make it illegal for most families to home school. It calls for all teachers, regardless of the type of school they teach in--public, private, religious or home--to be licensed by the federal government and to only teach"state-approved"? curriculum.

Tennesseans have historically valued their independence very highly, perhaps it is a remnant of the pioneer spirit that built this great state. Unfortunately, Gore now supports increasing control by the federal government in most areas of our lives.


The bottom line is, Gore doesn't hold to the same conservative Southern values that led Tennesseans to elect him six times to Congress. During his time in Washington, D.C., he has forgotten his roots.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO TRUTH IN CAMPAIGNING?:

Is it just me, or does anybody else care that Al Gore appears willing to say anything - even at the habitual risk of getting caught - to win the presidential election? Mr. Gore, who I might add was to receive the endorsement of the Internet adult entertainment industry this weekend, recently launched into yet another campaign falsehood - called an "indignant tale," by the Washington Times - when he said a prescription drug cost more for his mother-in-law than for his dog. The Times reported, "Mr. Gore, who told the anecdote in Florida to illustrate the need for his $253 billion drug plan for seniors, fabricated the cost of the drug itself, the comparative doses for his pet and for Tipper's mom, and his family's bills for them."

Mr. Gore said he pays $37.80 per month for Shiloh, his Labrador retriever, to take Etogesic, an animal version of Lodine. He said his mother-in-law's monthly bill is $108. "That's pretty bad when you have got to pretend to be a dog or a cat to get a price break," he said. Mr. Gore's aides have now acknowledged that those figures are not the actual costs for Mr. Gore's family. They were borrowed instead from a House Democratic study on rising drug prices. What's more, Mr. Gore conveniently ignored the fact that human drugs undergo many more strenuous tests and trials than animal medications, which leads to obviously higher prices. This is just the latest in a long series of missteps, exaggerations and downright fabrications on the part of Mr. Gore in this campaign - and in his long political service, for that matter.

Jano Cabrera, a spokesman for Republican presidential nominee GeorgeW. Bush, said the episode was only the latest example of Mr. Gore's "troubling pattern of embellishing and exaggerating his plans and personal experiences." "This certainly underscores the fact that the vice president will say anything to get elected," added Bush spokesman Karen Hughes. Mrs. Hughes said Mr. Gore's mistake went beyond the simple mispronunciations by Mr. Bush that Mr. Gore's campaign has routinely reported to the media. "This case is a direct misstatement of fact, which I think is far more serious," she accurately said.

______________________________________________________________________________________

A HISTORY OF WHOPPERS: Mr. Gore has had a long history of dishonesty - even before he joined forces with Bill Clinton - that is truly disconcerning. In fact, Mr. Gore's own campaign manager once told the vice-president his image "may continue to suffer if you continue to go out on a limb with remarks that may be impossible to back up." In addition, his communication director later chimed in by saying, "Your main pitfall is exaggeration." His two most famous lies were: (1) claiming that Harvard professor and author Erich Segal used him and wife Tipper as models for his best-selling book, "Love Story, and (2) claiming that, as a congressman, he "took the initiative in creating the Internet." The Internet, of course, was created years before Mr. Gore even entered Congress, and Mr. Segal has reported that he has no idea why Al Gore makes the outrageous claim to be the inspiration for his book.

However, those lies were the tip of a glaring iceberg of careless political misrepresentations that Al Gore has made through the years. They include the following: Mr. Gore told the Des Moines Register that his tenure as an investigative reporter at the Nashville Tennessean "got a bunch of people indicted and sent to jail." The paper later verified that nobody went to jail as a result of any Gore stories. But the claim sounded good ... while it lasted. Mr. Gore also has continually spoken of the danger he faced in Vietnam. In fact, it was recently reported that he actually had bodyguards assigned to protect him there and fellow soldiers have revealed that he was given priority treatment to keep him out of harms' way. He claimed to have been a co-sponsor of the McCain-Feingold campaign-finance reform bill when Mr. Feingold was not even in the Senate during Mr. Gore's tenure there. And he told a tall tale about discovering "a little place in upstate New York called Love Canal." He added fuel to that lie by declaring he "had the first hearing on that issue ... that started it all." President Carter had actually declared the Love Canal a disaster area months before Mr. Gore's hearing.

Mr. Gore has stooped to his most amazing lows by lying about his tobacco connection in the wake of his sister's 1984 smoking-related death. During his 1996 speech at the Democratic National Convention, Mr.Gore said, "That is why until I draw my last breath I will pour my heart and soul into the cause of protecting our children from the dangers of smoking." The truth: Mr. Gore and his family grew tobacco on the family farm for years after his sister's death. In 1988, four years after her tragic death, he even bragged to North Carolina tobacco growers that he relished growing and fostering tobacco.

And, as again reported in the Washington Times, "The man who introduced 'no controlling legal authority,' into the political lexicon has not shied away from lying about his role in the 1996 campaign-finance scandal." In that scandal, as most conservatives know (and most liberals ignore), Mr. Gore, despite White House memos and a Secret Service memo to the contrary, claimed he did not know that his appearance at the Hsi Lai temple was a Democratic fund-raising event. Videotape of the event shows Mr. Gore cavorting with Democratic fundraiser Maria Hsia, who delivered illegal "conduit" payments from "straw donors" (namely impoverished Buddhist nuns) to the DNC. Maria Hsia was later convicted of five felony counts for illegal actions in the 1996 campaign-finance scandal. Despite the blatant fund-raising corruption in the Clinton White House, Mr. Gore has continually called for campaign finance reform, as if his connection to the Hsia conviction is nonexistent. (Making matters worse, U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno has refused to investigate Mr. Gore's connection to this scandal.)

Lynne Cheney, wife of Republican vice presidential candidate Richard Cheney, recently spoke of the duality of Mr. Gore's values-speak. She said that Mr. Gore talks "values" by day, only to attend an evening "party with the entertainment industry, raise millions of dollars, listen to scatological jokes about people who are concerned about the entertainment industry marketing adult products to our children; sit there and listen to jokes so - how shall I say this politely - X-rated, that I can't think of anyone I could tell them to."

This is typical of Mr. Gore - saying one thing, and doing another.But his Hollywood buddies, blind apologists and loyalist Democratic voters appear content to vote for a man who may or may not tell them the truth at any given moment. This cold-blooded willingness to manufacture stories and fabricate lies has even led Mr. Gore to relinquish his one-time pro-life views in an attempt to garner votes. As hard as it may be to believe today, Mr. Gore once eloquently wrote to a Tennessee constituent about his pro-life views and maintained a solid pro-life voting record.

Recently, you will recall, he falsely stated that he has always been pro-choice. (There he goes again.) Al Gore's pro-life stance was apparently only as good as his word. Today, after years and years of Clintonizing the facts, Mr. Gore apparently cannot tell fact from fiction as he callously strives to win the ultimate political prize. Maybe this pattern of political concoctions is what it takes to win the presidency at the dawn of this new century. If it is, I truly fear for our nation as truth falls by the wayside and we, the people, become the ultimate victims of this parade of purposeful misrepresentations, blatant half-truths and categorical lies.

Stoned Al Gore Fantasized About Being President, Friend Says

While working as a reporter by day and attending divinity school at night, future presidential candidate Al Gore would get stoned on high-grade opium-laced marijuana with his Tennessee buddies and fantasize about running for the White House, a friend says.

"We'd get stoned and talk about what we'd do if we were president," his drug supplier John Warnecke told Newsweek's Bill Turque in 1999, in an account the magazine sat on for nearly a year.

"It would allow him to get into the fantasy world of being an elected official," Warnecke added.

arnecke went public on his own last year, telling an online journal that he and Gore used marijuana regularly together right up untill veep's 1976 run for Congress.

On Monday Warnecke told WLAC-Nashville talk radio host Phil Valentine that two trusted friends have since confided that they continued to supply Gore with drugs right up to his 1992 run for the vice presidency.

"As Warnecke tells it, he and Gore - often joined by (his wife) Nancy and Tipper - would gather to talk politics late into the night, fueled by (Grateful) Dead albums, cognac, and high-grade opium-laced marijuana Warnecke imported from the West Coast," reported Turque in his little-noticed biography "Inventing Al Gore."

"They picked apart everything from civil rights to funding for the B-1 bomber to, not surprisingly, the liberalization of drug laws." Warnecke told Turque that Gore "smoked as much as anybody I knew (in Nashville) and loved it." Once Gore even toked up while cruising the police beat as a reporter for the Nashville Tennessean.

Though Warnecke is the only Gore friend to go on the record about the veep's once heavy marijuana use, Turque says he spoke to others who back key parts of his story. Some even described Gore's behavior while under the influence.

"Al Gore stoned was a mix of expansiveness and paranoia, friends recall. He could be ironically humorous and self aware about his lot as heir apparent in a political family. But he was also worried about his bright future literally going up in smoke."

Warnecke told Turque that Gore was "paranoid about being busted."

Other Gore friends refused to go into detail but suggested that he has much to hide about this period of his life.

"I think this is one of these areas that could be damaging for Al, so I think I'm going to have to keep my comments private," Eve Ziebart said.

"That's one area that no friend of Al would ever discuss, because it's so inflammatory," Gore's Harvard roommate Bob Somerby told the Newsweek reporter.

The New York Torah Court - Beth Din announced Monday that, after careful deliberation, it has excommunicated Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential hopeful on Al Gore's ticket.

The court stated that Senator Lieberman caused grave scandal for the Jewish religion "by the fact that, while claiming to be an observant Jew, Lieberman has been misrepresenting and falsifying to the American people the teachings of the Torah against partial birth infanticide, against special privileges and preferential treatment for flaunting homosexuals, and against religious intermarriage of Jews."

Rabbi Joseph Friedman, a spokesman for the rabbinical court, said that Lieberman also has "flagrantly violated our sacred Torah by his Senate votes upholding partial birth infanticide and legitimizing homosexuality, which abnormal and unhealthy behavior the Torah strongly condemns as sinful and immoral.

"Mr. Lieberman, moreover, has, in violation of the Torah, supported harmful gender integration in the US Armed Forces - in the barracks, on naval warships, and in combat training - all of which weakens and demoralizes our Armed Forces," he added.

Rabbi Friedman also declared that, "under excommunication...the person being excommunicated still remains a Jew. We hope that the senator repents and asks (God's) forgiveness so that the excommunication may be lifted."

Rabbi Friedman stated that there are historical precedents for rabbinical excommunication of public figures as well as private individuals. However, those precedents have been few and far between. In 1945, Rabbi Mordecai M Kaplan was excommunicated for grave violations of the Torah. That excommunication was reported in the New York Times and other newspapers and publications.

The Gore-Lieberman 2000 Campaign Headquarters' press office in Nashville had no immediate response to the excommunication.

The economy isn't so great when it takes both father and mother to make ends meet. Prices are much higher and our dollar has shrunk considerably.



Education of children is shameful in a country as rich as ours. We have a military stripped of preparedness and pride. Morality has been on the decline. Our Second Amendment Rights are threatened with extinction. Our right to own property is being threatened.



Our health care system is in shambles by threats of socialized medical care. We have seen a total lack of respect for our legal system. Our national pride is diminished. So when you go to the polls to vote, consider what the conditions are and who has caused this to happen.

BY SUSAN LEE

Monday, September 11, 2000 12:01 a.m. EDT



Last week I found myself trying to understand Al Gore's Social Security reform. (I know, it's an exciting life.) The plan comes in two parts. One does absolutely nothing about the impending boomer crunch except to make it worse, but the other made my hair frizz.



The scary part is called Retirement Savings Plus (although the money can also be used to pay for college or buy a house). It provides for individual savings accounts but--oh, mama--listen to how Mr. Gore wants to fund them.



As I read it, everybody and anybody who earns less than $100,000 a year could set aside some of their own money and then have government step in with a big fat subsidy to total $2,000 a year a person. Lower-income people could contribute up to $500 a year and have government match every dollar with $3. Middle-income people could set aside $1,000 and have government match every dollar with another dollar. And upper income people could plop down $1,500 and get 33 cents for every dollar.



Since this sounded like one gargantuan giveaway, I wondered-- as you probably are--how much this would cost. Well, I phoned John Cogan, an economist at the Hoover Institution and the fastest numbers man in theWest. Mr. Cogan is also advising the Bush campaign, so I figured he would have the figures. He was ready for me.



Using Internal Revenue Service data, Mr. Cogan estimates that more than 100 million people would be eligible and, if they all maxed out on government money (which of course is money that originally belonged to you and me), the total tab would come to $160 billion. That's correct--$160 billion for one year, or roughly 16% of current federal tax revenue.



I started making shrieking-type noises, but Mr. Cogan--who is fair and calm--pointed out that not every eligible person would participate. So, assuming the same rate as the rate for people who elect to participate in private pensions (about 75%), Mr. Cogan tap-tapped on his calculator for a new number. And it wasn't all that comforting, either--$120 billion, or 12% of federal tax revenue.



Is Mr. Gore out of his mind? Maybe. At the very least, he must be mathematically challenged. He has estimated the cost of his program at $35 billion. So I asked Mr. Cogan what the deal was. Again, in his typically fair and calm fashion, he speculated that Mr. Gore, quite possibly, has not fully disclosed his restrictions on eligibility. A Gore aide did mention last week that people earning less than $5,000 a year, full-time students and retired people would be excluded. But, as Mr. Cogan noted, those exclusions aren't sufficient to even come close to $35 billion.



Instead, Mr. Cogan offered a scenario that the Gore camp may have in mind, given the fact that lower income people would have difficulty in ponying up $500 a year. Mr. Gore's $35 billion would be consistent with a plan in which only 5% of lower-income households and 50% of middle- and upper-income households participate. Simply put, no matter how one slices and dices the numbers, the only way to get the numbers down to Mr. Gore's estimate is to exclude those who really need the boost.



But there's more. Remember the other part of Mr. Gore's Social Security reform? The one that just leaves the system unreformed? This part calls for government to use the Social Security surplus to pay down the debt, thereby saving on interest costs. These savings would be used to "buy" government bonds that would be put in a "lock box" until the boomers start to retire and the system faces bankruptcy. So how much are we talking about? Mr. Cogan's lowest estimate is $34 trillion.



More shrieking from me. But, as Mr. Cogan pointed out, the exact figure really doesn't matter. This scheme is just pie-in-the-sky, since no assets are created ;(printing up bonds is just a paper transaction). So what happens when the bill for Social Security becomes due? Mr. Cogan, still remarkably fair and calm, said that there were three choices: Either taxes would have to be raised by 25%, or benefits would have to be cut by 25%, or the bonds would have to be rolled over for another generation of taxpayers to redeem by--you guessed it--paying more taxes or enjoying less benefits.



In other words--and I was really squeaking here-- Mr. Gore's retirement plan will generate a total tax increase of 37% to 41%? "Call it 40%," said Mr. Cogan.



I was speechless at this point, so Mr. Cogan added that he thought the whole thing was a liberal fantasy, and there was no way that Mr. Gore could enact such an enormous entitlement program. Well, I think Mr.Cogan is being just a little too fair and a little too calm. The "creator" of the Internet has had one fantasy too many for my taste.

-Like George W. Bush, Gore has a degree from Harvard... but, Al Gore flunked out of Religion School and flunked out of Law School.

-By comparison... George W. Bush has a degree from both Yale and a MBA degree from Harvard!

-Al Gore's Harvard undergraduate transcript is riddled with C's, including a C- in introductory economics, a D in one science course and a C+ in another: F

-In his sophomore year Gore's grades were lower than on ANY semester recorded on GWB's Yale transcript.

-In 1971 Gore enrolled at Vanderbilt Divinity School as a graduate student and received 5 F's out of 8 courses during 3 semesters. by the way, Gore did not receive a degree from the school.

-Al Gore did not graduate from Vanderbilt Law School where he enrolled for a brief time and again received his fairshare of C's. (Yet when introduced by PBS news anchor Gwen Ifill as a "graduate of Vanderbilt Law School" Mr. Gore failed to point this out.

-Of course with such sterling qualifications one can excuse Mr. Gore for not wanting to inject a little honesty into his campaign. And all across America if you listen carefully you'll hear the lowing of a lot of duped sheep. Wake up America-Nov 7th will impact all of us in a very bad way if we don't!

-On October 14, 1999, Al Gore's website proclaimed that he'd worked for the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty for 20 years, but that claim wasn't true. As late as 1992 Al Gore had opposed that Treaty on the Senate floor.

-On November 1, 1999, Time magazine reported that Al Gore had claimed to have authored the Earned Income Tax Credit. That wasn't true. The Earned Income Tax Credit was passed into law in 1975 and Al Gore didn't even enter Congress until 1977.

-On April 11, 2000, Al Gore was reported by the Boston Globe to be trumpeting that he had his own meeting with Gorbachev, but the Globe reported that 26 other members of Congress had been present at that mass meeting. It just wasn't true.

-On August 28th Al Gore told a gathering of Florida seniors that his dog, Shilo, and his mother-in-law took the same arthritis drug, but that his mother-in-law paid three times as much as the dog did and that wasn't true. Al Gore won't even answer questions about whether his mother-in-law pays anything for her drugs.

-On September 22nd Al Gore told the Associated Press that he'd been part of a discussions on strategic petroleum reserve since the days it was first established. But that reserve was established in 1975 and Al Gore did not enter Congress until 1977.

-At the presidential debate on October 3, 2000, Al Gore claimed that a girl had to stand in the classroom of Sarasota High School and was still standing, but it wasn't true. The principal of the high school went on national television to say so.

-In the same debate, Al Gore said that he had worked with former President Ronald Reagan on defense issues, but that wasn't true. Al Gore had opposed Ronald Reagan on defense issues.

-In the same debate, Al Gore was asked what had meant when he attacked Governor Bush as lacking the experience to be President. Al Gore told moderator Jim Lehrer he had never said such a thing, but he had. And so had his staff on many occasions. It wasn't true.

-In the same debate, Al Gore said he took a risk in asking the former Prime Minister of Russia Chernomyrdin to become involved in negotiating an end of the conflict in Kosovo. The New York Times reported that the Russian President Yeltsin had designated Mr. Chernomyrdin as special envoy to the Balkans and had done so two weeks before Chernomyrdin had met with Mr. Gore. Mr. Gore's claim simply wasn't true.

-In the same debate, Mr. Gore said that he had accompanied Jamie Lee Witt, the head of the federal government's emergency response team, to catastrophic fires in Texas, but that wasn't true. He didn't accompany Mr. Witt and he didn't go to those fires. He made it up. It wasn't true.

Reaction to some of Gore's lies



-Television commentator Morton Kondracke says Al Gore suffers from a Forrest Gump complex.

-The New York Times quotes a professor of psychology in saying that Al Gore's record is "like the false memory syndrome where people end up believing that they were abducted by aliens."

-The head of the California Democratic Party says that he cannot explain Al Gore's behavior because he is not a "psychiatrist."

-The Washington Post quotes a veteran democrat as saying that Al Gore's record is "dangerous because it reinforces a dangerous perception that Gore is just another arrogant politician and we have 8 more years of lies ahead of us."

-Former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley asked Al Gore at a New Hampshire debate "Why should we believe you will tell the truth as President if you don't tell the truth as a candidate?" Why indeed? In matters large and matters small, in matters three decades old and three days old, Al Gore has not told the truth as Senator, as a Vice President, as a nominee for President. Al Gore has not told the truth.

-In front of 50 million Americans in the first presidential debate on at least six separate matters, Al Gore did not tell the truth. If there is one thing certain about Campaign 2000 it's that you cannot trust Al Gore. You simply cannot trust Al Gore.

New York Post

9/06/00

Vice President Gore will be advertising a veritable candy store of tax-relief goodies when he releases his long-awaited budget plan today. But after reading the fine print, you'd almost expect someone like Mark Green to be calling for Gore's arrest on a bait-and-switch rap. And this is from a guy who's already carrying too much credibility baggage.



The veep will be promising federal breaks on everything from college tuition to the marriage penalty to retirement plans to pre-school programs to the time parents spend at home with their kids. Trouble is, even with a $2.2 trillion budget surplus expected over the next 10 years, the Democratic standard-bearer couldn't possibly pay for all these goodies with the expected revenues.



Even he knows that. Which is why each of his promises comes with an asterisk attached. Follow the footnotes and you find:

-Gore's promise of relief for the marriage tax penalty excludes marginal income for families who own their own homes.

-And it excludes those who make more than $60,000. (A veteran New York City teacher, for example.

-When Gore calls for "universal" pre-school programs, he defines "universal" to exclude 3-year-olds - a healthy chunk of the pre-K population.

-His college-tuition credit is limited to $10,000 in expenses per family.

-His tax bonbon for stay-at-home parents applies only those with babies under a year old.



But the disclaimers on Gore's savings plan, Retirement Savings Plus, take the cake. As illustrated in The Wall Street Journal, the plan offers tax exemptions for savings up to $2,000. Gore's federal candy store kicks in matching funds, based on family income. Now, ready for the catches? To qualify:



-You can't make more than $50,000 a year. (There's that teacher again.)

-You can't be retired.

-You can't be a full-time student.

-You can't take full advantage of the program until 2009 (when Gore assuredly would be gone from office).

-The kicker: To stay within budget, only half of those eligible can participate to the maximum extent possible.



At the end of the day, we figure there are about seven people in Idaho who might get something out of Gore's plans. Certainly few New York teachers. Gore backers, to be sure to accuse Gov. George W. Bush of similar budgetary ploys. And on some points, they might be right. But Gore, not Bush, is the candidate who emphasizes repeatedly that his is the fiscally "responsible" plan. Gore won't bust the budget and "wreck the economy" with imprudent tax cuts. Or so he says.



And Gore is the one who must prove his honesty. Remember when he told investigators that he could remember only one of 23 fund-raising coffee klatches he attended at the White House? Remember his memory loss on whether he knew that that Buddhist temple event was a fund-raiser?



Most of all, remember the one thing for which the Clinton-Gore administration will forever be known: scandals. Now, Americans want to know if Gore, free from the grip of President Clinton, will finally tell the truth. Doesn't look like it.

THE HERALD-NEWS, DAYTON, TENNESSEE, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2000, P. A-4 (reprinted by permission)



Tennessee hasn't had a native son in the White House in more than a century. Certainly most Tennesseans would agree it would be good to have one of our own as president. The question is whether Al Gore is still a Tennessean and whether we can afford for him to be president.



Al Gore is not the man Tennesseans sent to Washington as vice president in 1992. He's certainly not the same man Fourth District voters made the youngest Congressman in decades at the tender age of 28, nor is he the same man Tennessee sent to the U.S. Senate by huge margins in 1984 and 1990. He has abandoned the conservative, Southern values for which we once elected him.



Let's look at some of the changes:



Al Gore once told The Herald-News he was"personally opposed" to abortion. He also said he was against federal funding of abortions. Now Gore has positioned himself as the great champion of abortion rights and even defends the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortions. America's youngest and most defenseless citizens would receive no protection under a Gore presidency.



Ten years ago when Gore last ran for the Senate, The Herald-News supported him, in part because he portrayed himself as a defender of the Second Amendment. Gore was a friend to hunters and sportsmen and considered himself one.



Since then he has changed directions 180 degrees. He now supports national registration and licensure of all guns and all gun owners. He is solidly in the gun control camp that wants to eliminate all private ownership of handguns, semiautomatic rifles and pump shotguns. Of course, the private security forces for the elite would still have easy access to these weapons. Oh, and of course, so would the criminals.



On environmental issues Gore was once essentially mainstream. He believed in common sense EPA regulations and continued private use of public lands by permit. Now when it comes to environmental issues, Gore is on the fringe. He is more closely aligned with Katuah Earth First!, that radical environmentalist, tree-worshiping group that chained themselves to concreted barrels to block access to Watts Bar Nuclear Plat three years ago, than with the average Tennessean.



Gore writes in his book "Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit," "We must make the rescue of the environment the central organizing principle for civilization." Surely we face greater issues than protecting the environment, such as making sure all high school graduates can atleast read


Once Gore told The Herald-News he believed it was an admirable thing for committed parents to educate their children at home for religious or personal reasons. Now Gore supports a National Education Association policy that would make it illegal for most families to home school. It calls for all teachers, regardless of the type of school they teach in--public, private, religious or home--to be licensed by the federal government and to only teach"state-approved"? curriculum.

Tennesseans have historically valued their independence very highly, perhaps it is a remnant of the pioneer spirit that built this great state. Unfortunately, Gore now supports increasing control by the federal government in most areas of our lives.


The bottom line is, Gore doesn't hold to the same conservative Southern values that led Tennesseans to elect him six times to Congress. During his time in Washington, D.C., he has forgotten his roots.

Is it just me, or does anybody else care that Al Gore appears willing to say anything - even at the habitual risk of getting caught - to win the presidential election? Mr. Gore, who I might add was to receive the endorsement of the Internet adult entertainment industry this weekend, recently launched into yet another campaign falsehood - called an "indignant tale," by the Washington Times - when he said a prescription drug cost more for his mother-in-law than for his dog. The Times reported, "Mr. Gore, who told the anecdote in Florida to illustrate the need for his $253 billion drug plan for seniors, fabricated the cost of the drug itself, the comparative doses for his pet and for Tipper's mom, and his family's bills for them."

Mr. Gore said he pays $37.80 per month for Shiloh, his Labrador retriever, to take Etogesic, an animal version of Lodine. He said his mother-in-law's monthly bill is $108. "That's pretty bad when you have got to pretend to be a dog or a cat to get a price break," he said. Mr. Gore's aides have now acknowledged that those figures are not the actual costs for Mr. Gore's family. They were borrowed instead from a House Democratic study on rising drug prices. What's more, Mr. Gore conveniently ignored the fact that human drugs undergo many more strenuous tests and trials than animal medications, which leads to obviously higher prices. This is just the latest in a long series of missteps, exaggerations and downright fabrications on the part of Mr. Gore in this campaign - and in his long political service, for that matter.

Jano Cabrera, a spokesman for Republican presidential nominee GeorgeW. Bush, said the episode was only the latest example of Mr. Gore's "troubling pattern of embellishing and exaggerating his plans and personal experiences." "This certainly underscores the fact that the vice president will say anything to get elected," added Bush spokesman Karen Hughes. Mrs. Hughes said Mr. Gore's mistake went beyond the simple mispronunciations by Mr. Bush that Mr. Gore's campaign has routinely reported to the media. "This case is a direct misstatement of fact, which I think is far more serious," she accurately said.

A HISTORY OF WHOPPERS: Mr. Gore has had a long history of dishonesty - even before he joined forces with Bill Clinton - that is truly disconcerning. In fact, Mr. Gore's own campaign manager once told the vice-president his image "may continue to suffer if you continue to go out on a limb with remarks that may be impossible to back up." In addition, his communication director later chimed in by saying, "Your main pitfall is exaggeration." His two most famous lies were: (1) claiming that Harvard professor and author Erich Segal used him and wife Tipper as models for his best-selling book, "Love Story, and (2) claiming that, as a congressman, he "took the initiative in creating the Internet." The Internet, of course, was created years before Mr. Gore even entered Congress, and Mr. Segal has reported that he has no idea why Al Gore makes the outrageous claim to be the inspiration for his book.

However, those lies were the tip of a glaring iceberg of careless political misrepresentations that Al Gore has made through the years. They include the following: Mr. Gore told the Des Moines Register that his tenure as an investigative reporter at the Nashville Tennessean "got a bunch of people indicted and sent to jail." The paper later verified that nobody went to jail as a result of any Gore stories. But the claim sounded good ... while it lasted. Mr. Gore also has continually spoken of the danger he faced in Vietnam. In fact, it was recently reported that he actually had bodyguards assigned to protect him there and fellow soldiers have revealed that he was given priority treatment to keep him out of harms' way. He claimed to have been a co-sponsor of the McCain-Feingold campaign-finance reform bill when Mr. Feingold was not even in the Senate during Mr. Gore's tenure there. And he told a tall tale about discovering "a little place in upstate New York called Love Canal." He added fuel to that lie by declaring he "had the first hearing on that issue ... that started it all." President Carter had actually declared the Love Canal a disaster area months before Mr. Gore's hearing.

Mr. Gore has stooped to his most amazing lows by lying about his tobacco connection in the wake of his sister's 1984 smoking-related death. During his 1996 speech at the Democratic National Convention, Mr.Gore said, "That is why until I draw my last breath I will pour my heart and soul into the cause of protecting our children from the dangers of smoking." The truth: Mr. Gore and his family grew tobacco on the family farm for years after his sister's death. In 1988, four years after her tragic death, he even bragged to North Carolina tobacco growers that he relished growing and fostering tobacco.

And, as again reported in the Washington Times, "The man who introduced 'no controlling legal authority,' into the political lexicon has not shied away from lying about his role in the 1996 campaign-finance scandal." In that scandal, as most conservatives know (and most liberals ignore), Mr. Gore, despite White House memos and a Secret Service memo to the contrary, claimed he did not know that his appearance at the Hsi Lai temple was a Democratic fund-raising event. Videotape of the event shows Mr. Gore cavorting with Democratic fundraiser Maria Hsia, who delivered illegal "conduit" payments from "straw donors" (namely impoverished Buddhist nuns) to the DNC. Maria Hsia was later convicted of five felony counts for illegal actions in the 1996 campaign-finance scandal. Despite the blatant fund-raising corruption in the Clinton White House, Mr. Gore has continually called for campaign finance reform, as if his connection to the Hsia conviction is nonexistent. (Making matters worse, U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno has refused to investigate Mr. Gore's connection to this scandal.)

Lynne Cheney, wife of Republican vice presidential candidate Richard Cheney, recently spoke of the duality of Mr. Gore's values-speak. She said that Mr. Gore talks "values" by day, only to attend an evening "party with the entertainment industry, raise millions of dollars, listen to scatological jokes about people who are concerned about the entertainment industry marketing adult products to our children; sit there and listen to jokes so - how shall I say this politely - X-rated, that I can't think of anyone I could tell them to."

This is typical of Mr. Gore - saying one thing, and doing another.But his Hollywood buddies, blind apologists and loyalist Democratic voters appear content to vote for a man who may or may not tell them the truth at any given moment. This cold-blooded willingness to manufacture stories and fabricate lies has even led Mr. Gore to relinquish his one-time pro-life views in an attempt to garner votes. As hard as it may be to believe today, Mr. Gore once eloquently wrote to a Tennessee constituent about his pro-life views and maintained a solid pro-life voting record.

Recently, you will recall, he falsely stated that he has always been pro-choice. (There he goes again.) Al Gore's pro-life stance was apparently only as good as his word. Today, after years and years of Clintonizing the facts, Mr. Gore apparently cannot tell fact from fiction as he callously strives to win the ultimate political prize. Maybe this pattern of political concoctions is what it takes to win the presidency at the dawn of this new century. If it is, I truly fear for our nation as truth falls by the wayside and we, the people, become the ultimate victims of this parade of purposeful misrepresentations, blatant half-truths and categorical lies.

Stoned Al Gore Fantasized About Being President, Friend Says

While working as a reporter by day and attending divinity school at night, future presidential candidate Al Gore would get stoned on high-grade opium-laced marijuana with his Tennessee buddies and fantasize about running for the White House, a friend says.

"We'd get stoned and talk about what we'd do if we were president," his drug supplier John Warnecke told Newsweek's Bill Turque in 1999, in an account the magazine sat on for nearly a year.

"It would allow him to get into the fantasy world of being an elected official," Warnecke added.

arnecke went public on his own last year, telling an online journal that he and Gore used marijuana regularly together right up untill veep's 1976 run for Congress.

On Monday Warnecke told WLAC-Nashville talk radio host Phil Valentine that two trusted friends have since confided that they continued to supply Gore with drugs right up to his 1992 run for the vice presidency.

"As Warnecke tells it, he and Gore - often joined by (his wife) Nancy and Tipper - would gather to talk politics late into the night, fueled by (Grateful) Dead albums, cognac, and high-grade opium-laced marijuana Warnecke imported from the West Coast," reported Turque in his little-noticed biography "Inventing Al Gore."

"They picked apart everything from civil rights to funding for the B-1 bomber to, not surprisingly, the liberalization of drug laws." Warnecke told Turque that Gore "smoked as much as anybody I knew (in Nashville) and loved it." Once Gore even toked up while cruising the police beat as a reporter for the Nashville Tennessean.

Though Warnecke is the only Gore friend to go on the record about the veep's once heavy marijuana use, Turque says he spoke to others who back key parts of his story. Some even described Gore's behavior while under the influence.

"Al Gore stoned was a mix of expansiveness and paranoia, friends recall. He could be ironically humorous and self aware about his lot as heir apparent in a political family. But he was also worried about his bright future literally going up in smoke."

Warnecke told Turque that Gore was "paranoid about being busted."

Other Gore friends refused to go into detail but suggested that he has much to hide about this period of his life.

"I think this is one of these areas that could be damaging for Al, so I think I'm going to have to keep my comments private," Eve Ziebart said.

"That's one area that no friend of Al would ever discuss, because it's so inflammatory," Gore's Harvard roommate Bob Somerby told the Newsweek reporter.

The New York Torah Court - Beth Din announced Monday that, after careful deliberation, it has excommunicated Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, the Democratic vice presidential hopeful on Al Gore's ticket.

The court stated that Senator Lieberman caused grave scandal for the Jewish religion "by the fact that, while claiming to be an observant Jew, Lieberman has been misrepresenting and falsifying to the American people the teachings of the Torah against partial birth infanticide, against special privileges and preferential treatment for flaunting homosexuals, and against religious intermarriage of Jews."

Rabbi Joseph Friedman, a spokesman for the rabbinical court, said that Lieberman also has "flagrantly violated our sacred Torah by his Senate votes upholding partial birth infanticide and legitimizing homosexuality, which abnormal and unhealthy behavior the Torah strongly condemns as sinful and immoral.

"Mr. Lieberman, moreover, has, in violation of the Torah, supported harmful gender integration in the US Armed Forces - in the barracks, on naval warships, and in combat training - all of which weakens and demoralizes our Armed Forces," he added.

Rabbi Friedman also declared that, "under excommunication...the person being excommunicated still remains a Jew. We hope that the senator repents and asks (God's) forgiveness so that the excommunication may be lifted."

Rabbi Friedman stated that there are historical precedents for rabbinical excommunication of public figures as well as private individuals. However, those precedents have been few and far between. In 1945, Rabbi Mordecai M Kaplan was excommunicated for grave violations of the Torah. That excommunication was reported in the New York Times and other newspapers and publications.

The Gore-Lieberman 2000 Campaign Headquarters' press office in Nashville had no immediate response to the excommunication.

tl;dr
 
The OP was a grand slam home run and everyone in here knows it.
Think how much better life would be if there were no leftists in the government or media, and if we had a Catholic nation and the leaders and media were practicing Catholics. Here's what would happen: We'd spend very little, just enough. People wouldn't be pitted against one another. There would be no need for ambulance chasing lawyers. People would put others first. There would be no agenda to tear down America or weaken its families. No abortions, no IVF's plenty of adoptions, lots more churches, parishes, and priests. Far more people would be conservative Christians. There is no one who can honestly deny everything would be a lot better.

He invented the internet as well.
 
He invented the internet as well.
He never said that exactly but others twisted it to suit their needs to have a good laugh

When asked to describe what distinguished him from his challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey, Gore replied (in part): "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.

So he never said he invented it , Since it had been around for about 15 years already but as a congressman he proposed and supported various congress initiatives to expand it for everyday use by anyone

Gore supported initiatives to build new “wide area networks” (WAN). To speed this process, in 1986 Gore authored the Supercomputer Network Act, which funded research to expand connections between universities and research facilities using high-capacity fiber-optic cables.

So he just supported and initiated things to make the internet into what it is today by proposing legislation and getting it passed in congress

seriously I was on the internet when it was hooked up to phone lines. Not to many people had computer so it was rather lonely

Al Gore is an environmental hypocrite and he has been wrong at every turn with his predictions. He wanted carbon credits so he could get even more wealthier off of the American taxpayer. Did he pay carbon taxes on his own footprint?

He has been been an environmental supporter for over 20 years
He has spoken on the topic continually and headed some committees on the subject
He has participated or lead numerous committees on the subject
Yeah he is egotistical but what politician isn't
So stop lying , if you don't agree with his views just say so

he has an alleged conflict of interest from his role as both an investor in green-technology companies and as an advocate of taxpayer-funded green-technology subsidies


When trump cut corporate taxes was that a conflict of interest
lowered income tax rates, especially for higher-income Americans
lowered the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%
