How Democrats Celebrate America’s Birthday

Filed under: Breaking News,Democratic Idiocy,Drugs,Family,Weirdos and Hippies — Sisyphus @ 2:38 pm

Looks like Al Gore’s son takes after the rest of the Democrat Party.

Al Gore’s son was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of possessing marijuana and prescription drugs after deputies pulled him over for speeding, authorities said.

Al Gore III, 24, was driving a blue Toyota Prius about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway when he was pulled over at about 2:15 a.m., Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino said.

The deputies said they smelled marijuana and searched the car, Amormino said. They found less than an ounce of marijuana along with Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, he said.

Like father, like son. Meanwhile, America celebrates her birthday, and the Democrats decide to “honor” that by defiling their bodies and endangering the lives of other motorists. I think incidents like this highlight which party is run by the adults around here, and which is run by man-children heathens intent on their own sinful pleasure no matter the cost to society.

  3. “A Prius can do 100mph!?!?!”

    Depends on what fuel you use. Apparently, they run very well on drugs.

  5. If cars ran well on drugs we would prolly look into that fuel source, lol. Let’s see–judge an entire group of people by this one man? Hmmm, anyone care to show off a “Republican” or “conservative” here? The point is–people from every group, society, and social class do stupid things. Get it?

  8. While I do not condone drug use outside of a doctors office, or with a med student, I feel sorry for the young lad.

    Obviously being forced to drive a Prius because you father’s fat bloated-ass farts are causing some sort of climate change, more likely a general stinky smell all over the world rather than global warming, has, in the end, driven him to hide his shame in drugs rather than face the truth of his big fat electricity using, jet fuel burning lying sack of slag father is the real cause of destruction in this world.

    I will pray for him.

  9. There the children go again. When will liberals learn. The way a True American respects and pays homage to America is by respecting the rule of law and the jury system. Our Fearless Leader, George Bush (still a mere mortal compared to soon to be President Brownback) knows how to respect the law while still making sure he shows his respect to loyal friends. That’s how it’s done libs. Of course if drugs are your loyal friends then maybe you should re-evaluate your lifestyle and perhaps your citizenship.

    Bush, too, is not without sin. The difference is that he learned from his mistakes, embracing Christianity and America. Anyone want to argue that Gore’s son, or any other liberal, will do the same?

  12. One who is Liberal is as much human as Bush and have the ability to learn from their mistakes. People do that. It’s one of the great things with the human mind. No, not everyone is going to learn, but some will. And those that do learn will be Conservative, Liberal, Democrat, Republican, black, white, Christian, Atheist, tall, short, etc, etc…….. Get it?

  14. Well, Ronny and Nancy were stone alcoholics. Nancy used to cry herself to sleep, sometimes in her own vomit. Laura sold pot in her college days and of course ran over and killed someone while in a drugfiend rush to get somewhere. There are photos of the twins partying at discos, but I say as long as they maintain their abstinence pledges, a little wild drinking and driving never hurt anyone (except whomever it was their mother killed.)

    Chelsea Clinton, on the other had, is so dried up that nothing ever happens to her. She is not a model child; she only acts like one. All the Demon-o-crats are immoral anyway, that’s why they believe in godless socialized medicine and social security pay-outs.

    That’s why Gore’s kid did what he did; he’s a commie. I think the reason for all this is because Republicans are family people and church people and they bring up their kids to live right and go to church and run corporations, where there are a lot of stresses, hence the drinking and driving and killing.

  15. Wait–Gore did drugs because he’s a “commie?” What kind of sense does that make? Also, being Democrat does not make you an immoral person…druggie included. Do you know the characteristics of a Liberal, Conservative, Democrat, and Republican? Tell me….do you agree with the general economics the Republicans go by? Curiosity….I’ll go find my nifty list that I made and post it here for ya.

  16. “One who is Liberal is as much human as Bush and have the ability to learn from their mistakes.”

    If they learned from their mistakes, they wouldn’t be a liberal anymore. If “stupid” is the answer, “liberal” is the question.

    “Wait–Gore did drugs because he’s a “commie?” What kind of sense does that make?”

    Communism, like drug abuse, devalues the individual and punishes Christian values.

    “Tell me….do you agree with the general economics the Republicans go by?”

    Yes.

  17. “If they learned from their mistakes, they wouldn’t be a liberal anymore. If “stupid” is the answer, “liberal” is the question.”

    We’ve been over this before. Liberal does not equal stupid. Liberal is a school of thought–a list of principals if you will. To agree with some points of liberal thought does not make you stupid…in fact, you would be stupid by that logic.🙂 Hold on–I’ll show you.

    “Communism, like drug abuse, devalues the individual and punishes Christian values.”

    While neither Communism or drug abuse is a good thing, they are unrelated. If one abuses drugs that does not make them a communist and if one is a commie that does not make them a druggie.

    “Yes.”

    Republicans follow “liberal” economics.🙂 Do you like that? I posted a list of characteristics of Liberals, Conservatives, Republicans, and Democrats. Liberal and Conservative are “schools of thought” if you will and the other two are political parties. Here’s the list for you because your ignorance bothers me…..

    “Ok, here’s your crash course in American Government and Politics.
    Lesson 1: Politcal Parties, schools of thought, and their characteristics.

    Liberal: Political Ideology

    -Believe in affirmative action. (I don’t but they do…)
    -Rights of unions to organize. (Sure, why not?)
    -Politics of compassion/care for the weak. (Can you say welfare and social security?)
    -Reduction of the inequalities of wealth.
    -Individual rights (Very much liking the Constitution)
    -Laissez Faire economic views with some government control to protect the people. (Also called, Liberal economics.)

    Conservative: Political Ideology

    -Faith in the private sector (Oh, like with NO one religion over the other in government? Yea, that one.)
    -Pro-business, oppose higher taxes on business (Doesn’t say anything about on the people.)
    -A minimal approach to welfare and social equality issues (In other words, the government wants your money and minimum responsibility to/for you. THat’s a conservative view!)
    -The market, not government should distribute goods (Basic econimics can tell you that the government needs to have SOME regulation when it comes to the market.
    -Prayer in school (I’m for it.)
    -No abortion (Not a problem with me.)
    -No to gay-marriage (I agree with that too.)
    -Yes to the death penalty (Not to be confused with your mass murdering of undesirables Crockett)

    Democrat:
    -Believe in Liberal economics (free trade and mixed economy)
    -Wish to keep taxes for big business (oil companies for example) in place
    -Favor increased minimum wage.
    -Like to provide for college education in the form of grants and scholarships for all the kiddies today in America.
    -Insert Liberal thought here [generally]. Aside from the moral issues (abortion, gay marriage, etc.) and the race stuff (affirmative action), there is the government role. Government should provide welfare, social security, housing (when needed…like after Katrina…and the government wasn’t ready), protection of rights without bias to race, gender, or social class. More equal representation in government. Medical care. (It goes on, but I’ll be brief with all these.)
    -The Democratic party is split three ways when it comes to same-sex marriage. 1) For legalized marriage 2) For civil unions 3) AGAINST it!
    -They are also split on abortion. 1) For it 2) AGAINST it!
    -Against torture. (Duh.)

    Republican:
    -Believe in Liberal economics (No, I’m not even kidding. In general, Republicans are for liberal economics. Just as in general, Democrats are for Liberal Economics.) Also, supply-side economics is a fan of Regan’s. (Something of Fiscal Policy)
    -Take “conservative” and insert. Remember that Conservatives wish governmetn to have little responsibility for those under that government. Conservatives are friends of big business–not the people. Less rights are a conservative deal. In other words, less representation in government is what it comes out to.
    -Protect gun rights. (yea, it’s the liberals/Democrats that are more for that gun control/restriction)
    -Against abortion and gay-marriage (in general)
    -For adult stem cell research. (Very much so I am. Adult and Embryonic are two WAY different things)
    -Heavy military/strong national defense.
    -Split party with illegal immigration. 1) Throw them back 2) Make them citizens.

    Third Parties: This is where you ignorant people fall.
    These are your extremists and various small groups that will never hold the presidency, Congress majority, or American majority.
    Here’s some examples:
    American Centrist Party
    America First Party
    American Fascist Party
    American Heritage Party
    American Independent Party
    American Nazi Party
    American Party
    American Patriot Party
    American Reform Party
    Centrist Party (United States)
    Christian Freedom Party
    Christian Falangist Party of America
    Citizens For Reform Party
    Commonwealth Party
    Communist Party USA
    Freedom Road Socialist Organization
    Independent American Party
    Jefferson Republican Party
    Ku Klux Klan
    Labor Party
    Marijuana Party
    National Nihilist Party
    National Socialist Movement
    New American Independent Party
    New Union Party
    Peace and Freedom Party
    Pacifist Party of America
    Personal Choice Party
    Populist Party of America
    United Fascist Union
    Prohibition Party
    Reform Party of the United States of America
    Socialist Action
    Socialist Alternative
    Socialist Equality Party
    Socialist Labor Party
    Socialist Party USA
    Socialist Workers Party
    United Citizens Party
    Workers Party, USA
    Workers World Party
    Working Families Party
    World Socialist Party of the United States

    Now, to qualify for any group you do not have to observe all characteristics listed. That means that you can be against liberal moral thought, but for their government sturcture, and not be a Democrat. A Democrat does not equal Liberal….just as a Republican does not equal Conservative. In general, if you are an “extreme” anything, you are in a Third Pary whether you know it or not. Get it?”

  19. Well done, Sisy. I think my favorite part of your post was the part that said: “Meanwhile, America celebrates her birthday, and the Democrats decide to ‘honor’ that by defiling their bodies and endangering the lives of other motorists.” At first I thought you meant Gore III was drunk, which, indeed, would have been a threat to fellow-drivers. But actually there wasn’t any alcohol in his bloodstream. I’m not sure if he was smoking pot, but marijuana is not scientifically shown to alter motor function significantly, anyway. Actually, besides alcohol, road rage kills more drivers a year than any drug. So you’re probably more dangerous when you see a “Pro Life” bumper stickers

    It’s probably good that you clarify on your front page that you are not affiliated with the Brownback campaign, because something tells me he’d be less than thrilled about getting stuck with an uninformed (yet vocal) radical on his side. If you followed politics, instead of just asking your priest which guy hates gay people the most, you’d know that lately politicians have avoided taking the cheap shots you’re taking at Al Gore, because everyone knows that eventually their own kids will mess up, too. If we did go tit for tat, we’d find that someone’s views on tax policy and immigration will not make him any more or less likely to break the law. Our own Republican President (Rep) and Vice President (Rep) have three D.U.I.s between them. (You say Bush learned from his mistake, but why did Cheney have to make his TWICE?) Ted Kennedy (Dem) got drunk and drove his car off a bridge. Bill Clinton (Dem) smoked pot in college. Both of Bush’s daughters have been arrested for alcohol-related irresponsibility, and his niece (Jeb’s daughter) was sent to rehab after her botched attempt to forge a prescription at the pharmacy to feed her addiction. Etc., etc.

    Do you read any other books, too, or just the one?

  20. Lol, that wasn’t long…it was a list. Long vertical but nothing much on the horizontal. That format kept it organized. If it was one of your buddies you wouldn’t care; therefore, leave it be. Also, my screen name is La Mona. I don’t mess with your name–do me the same favor. And “crappy” isn’t the right word either. I’m sorry that I’m poking at your ignorance…get over it. Perhaps you should open up to education in the areas of Government, Politics, and Economics…you would look so much better in debate when these things come up. Do so, and you will have more than name calling to fill your “rebuttal” with. A grasp of those concepts are always more appealing than your chickened and ignorant name calling. And if it was up to me, your ignorance would be a crime. But that’s not up to me, and me being here is not up to you. Now, have you learned anything yet?

  24. “Republicans follow “liberal” economics.”

    Nonsense!

    “Actually, besides alcohol, road rage kills more drivers a year than any drug.”

    Cellphones are also dangerous. Onanites use them to call prostitutes while they’re driving; the rest of us die for their sins.

    “Do you read any other books, too, or just the one?”

    I like a good St. Augustine essay as much as the next man.

    I’m working my way down there.

    All too lacking, thanks to years of leftist court-packing. Luckily, Brownback will continue Bush’s great work, and change all that.

    The topic of the post is Al Gore III’s behavior on the 4th of July but you felt this was a good place to expound on your views of the political landscape: “Lesson 1: Politcal Parties, schools of thought, and their characteristics.”
    And your more specific views of individual issues from affirmative action to stem cell research.
    I think you must be joking because otherwise the self centeredness of thinking people reading a post ending with “I think incidents like this highlight which party is run by the adults around here, and which is run by man-children heathens intent on their own sinful pleasure no matter the cost to society.”
    would be interested in your extensive views beyond the subject at hand.

  32. And the focus shifted. I posted that because once more because….most you people don’t know what a liberal, conservative, Republican, or Democrat really is. You keep making blind assumptions and name-calling to something you don’t know. I was just helping out. I figure if the information is provided to you then you have no excuse to be ignorant. You don’t have to agree with what each group or whatever does, but at least then you can form a decent rebuttal.
    And my list is still related. You think that because Gore is liberal he acted that way and that only a liberal would do things like that…which isn’t true. You’re attacking stereotypes.
    And Sisypus, I don’t care if you don’t believe it or not, but they do. I’m saying that some things are related and you shouldn’t close out a group because of a few things you don’t agree with that they (in general) follow. Economics is a common ground. (By the way, this is a recurring issue…..almost always related.)

    I freely admit I have less love for Our President, George Bush, than others here may have but it is only because I feel he has gotten lost in his mission to bring God back into the public square and the courthouses and legislative buildings around this Great Nation. Senator Brownback will not fail where President Bush has.
    One thing President Brownback won’t forget is that God is All. I was six when I saw that everything was God…My sister was only a very tiny child then, and she was drinking her milk, and all of a sudden I saw that she was God and the milk was God. I mean, all she was doing was pouring God into God.
    All of the Haliburton’s, old friends, oil companies, hippies, liberals and not snitching in the world will dissuade President Brownback. Of that I am sure.

I think that you should educate yourself in the areas of Government, Politics, and Economics. I think that people here are blinded by stereotypes, and have given in to what I call “political racism.” I think that many here act like five-year-olds. But, I never said what you claim there.

  45. OH…why didn’t you just say that in the first place? Knowing about Government, Politics, and Economics is not a distraction. It’s a benefit. Considering this is a blog that revolves around politics (or it’s suppose to, but it looks like name-calling to me) it would be something useful for you to know. If you knew anything of the matter you would know that what you wish for politically is impossible. The founding fathers set up government so that people like you couldn’t do the sorts of things that some mention here (examples later-I’m keepin’ it short) It’s not like the Bible is against education/learning different things. Jesus was a carpenter. That takes a lot of Math. He did that for the first thirty years of his life. Also, would you not want people in political positions to know of Government politics, and Economics? Otherwise they are not capable of their job. You could say that such knowledge is evil but then that leaves incompetence in government. Do you see the problem here? Knowing things is good. It benefits you. Understand? What I call for is not distraction but a call for you to leave ignorance… The Bible is against ignorance by the way.

  46. God provides and through his benevolence has made me materially rich (if you are into such things. I think it a sin to dwell on though). God has also provided for His child, Senator Brownback, to be in a position to be the next Great President of the United States.
    The Founding Fathers disagreed and came up with a compromise. The Islamic radicals have shown us that the time for compromising is over.

  47. See…this is why knowing politics and government would help you. Brownback has no chance at being the next president. I could also care less if one is materially rich or not. It means nothing to me. They didn’t compromise on that…if you knew History you would gather that much as well. The founding fathers compomised when it came to representation (the reason we have the Senate AND the House of Reps). When it came to extremists that would take over government and try to impose it on everyone else, they were all for protecting America from. (See the Bill of Rights Amendment One Freedom of Religion). They just fought a war to get away from oppressors of the sort…why would they start a country up with the same crap? No, they learned from past experience.

    Those Islamic radicals are a perfect example of government run by religion.

  51. China has the fastest growing Christian church…and it’s illegal over there.
    Look how long this country has been in existence and how long others have. This country is very young in comparison. Also, other countries value Christianity. I don’t know how to put that any other way. In this country as time goes by the morals go farther and farther down the drain. ….anything else?

    And what “soft” problem?

  52. See, you’re beginning to open your eyes to God’s American Way after all. Why you’re afraid to admit it is not God’s Way. Get on the Right Path before someone stones you.

  53. “Puritanical values have been tested, survived and thrived. Time to admit it and move on.”

    Islamic values have been tested, survived and thrived. And there are waaay more of them than you.

    “Get on the Right Path before someone stones you.”

    Nobody will be stoning anyone on this continent, because nobody would ever allow maniacs like you to be in a position of power. You’re even more nuts than Brownback, and he still has zero chance of the presidency. Wait till next year, but you’ll remember my “I told you so!”

  54. No one is going to stone me….and my views of America and my views on God have not changed the entire time I’ve been here. I don’t remember saying anything up there that says I support your views. From what I’ve seen here I don’t. I still think you are ignorant. Extremely ignorant…and I’m becoming more and more convinced that you read with your eyes closed and have automated responses for these blogs.

  55. La Mona, they use God as their excuse to ignorance. They think that if they deny the use of God’s gifts to us, that God loves them more. Do you think God is happy that he took the time to give you an inquisitive mind that you fail to use yourself? Is that how you value God’s gifts: you let them rot, and go in the complete opposite direction?? You are the ones spitting in God’s face.

  56. I’ve told them that before too.🙂 I missed you, lol. It was very lonely. Carsick isn’t a great conversation buddy. I know God gave me my brain, my curiosity, etc, etc, and I love it.

  57. Heh, yeah I bet it gets lonely having a conversation with a brick.

    My philosophy is this: wanna honour god? Use the gifts he gave us. He created us with such a powerful and inquisitive mind. Look at all our accomplishments. We’ve extended our dominion beyong the planet! We’re unlocking the secrets of nature itself. We have done this all by ourselves, with the things given to us by our creator. Why would we insult him by purposely shutting off our brains and living our entire existence by a book that was meant to be just a template for good living?

  58. adamnelson,
    You said, “Islamic values have been tested, survived and thrived. And there are waaay more of them than you.”
    But God gave us bigger bombs and the ability to deliver them.

  59. Nooo, the Manhattan Project gave you bigger bombs and Werner von Braun and the rest of the Third Reich gave you the ability to deliver them. And America is in the process of disarming its nuclear arsenal, mostly because they’re a money pit and have only been used twice.

  60. Wow, Carsick, remember the part about U.S. History? Please read it. The Bible is a History book….think of American History in the same light (as a source for History) and learn it! (go back and soak up some of the Bible while you’re at it.)
    And America isn’t about to bomb anyone over there….imagine the political side-effects…oh wait, learn politics THEN ponder the side-effects.
    And adamnelson…you’re right, bricks suck. They never say anything good back.

  61. “My philosophy is this: wanna honour god? Use the gifts he gave us.”

    There’s an excellent play by Arthur Miller on that subject that deals with God and Lucifer debate this subject. God made Lucifer the one angel who could see reason and science, and Lucifer got tired of worshiping God and left. As a result, God is reluctant to allow Adam and Eve the same knowledge, but Lucifer says that if they can look at a flower and not just see that it is beautiful, but a hugely complex chain of atoms and etc, they will appreciate creation even more. So he has the serpent tempt Eve, and creates science, sin, and sex on earth. It’s a shaky play, being Miller’s first comedy, but it’s thought-provoking.

  62. “I freely admit I have less love for Our President, George Bush, than others here may have but it is only because I feel he has gotten lost in his mission to bring God back into the public square and the courthouses and legislative buildings around this Great Nation.”

    Do you believe this was ever his mission? Or do you think he USED the religious right to get elected? I’d offer books that prove the latter, but I gather you’d find them irrelevant since they were published after 33 A.D.

  63. Voorhees, you’d have to stretch your date a little longer than that, since the accepted Gospels were written long after 33 AD, suspiciously long after Jesus’ death.

    Salmo, that’s an interesting play. I looked it up. Here’s a real noodle-scratcher: why do we assume God is the good one? What if the deal with Satan and bloody hellfire is all propaganda, and Satan is in fact the one we should be worshipping? They’re on opposite ends of the spectrum, but they must both think that they’re right. Nobody fights or believes because they think they’re wrong.

  64. Adam, I know that and you know that, but I’m doubting these folks know anything about Constantine’s political motives or King James’ nostalgia.

  65. “why do we assume God is the good one? What if the deal with Satan and bloody hellfire is all propaganda, and Satan is in fact the one we should be worshipping?”

    Yes, what did Satan ever do to us?
    In the entire Bible Satan does not kill one person…

  66. […] WaPo Is on the Pot Filed under: Weirdos and Hippies, Idiocy — Psycheout @ 10:16 pm Sisyphus has already addressed the arrest of scofflaw and son of Goracle, Al Gore III (as if one al-Gore wasn’t enough).

  67. Is satan mentioned in the old testament at all? I know that he wasn’t in the garden of eden–that was a snake. It says so in the original hebrew.
