A Gathering of Eagles

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 27, 2007

I’ve been remiss in not getting the word out on a marxist group planning to march in DC from the Vietnam Memorial Wall to the Pentagon on St Paddy’s Day to protest the war, and engage in a little vandalism.

There are efforts afoot to protect the Wall from desecration, and The Gray Dog has details about that, You can find details of the planned march here, [Warning, anti-American Propaganda contained in the link, Enter with Caution.]

A Gathering of Eagles website, and Forum

We cannot rest in our defense of Liberty, and we cannot allow a Memorial to our fallen brothers and sisters to be desecrated.

Al Gore’s Carbon Footprint

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 27, 2007

A big Hat Tip goes to The Drudge Report for this gem of a story!!!

Green Boy has been exposed as just another hypocrite!

I wonder how large his carbon offsets will have to be to cover this? [Snapshot]

In the previous post, I said that I would work to increase my carbon footprint, and old Al has dwarfed any effort I had in mind. I need to dig up a photo of the Gore Mansion. I’ve heard rumors it looks just like the White House.

My power bill only runs between $60 and $80 a month since I’ve boosted the insulation.

I guess for the Democrats, it’s do as I say, not do as I do.

I will laugh myself to sleep tonight!

Here is the end of the article I wish to preserve on my blog…

In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.
The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.
Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.
Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.
Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.
“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk to walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.
In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.
