Frequent computer crashes happen because people press the W key too much. That key had been removed from all White House keyboards on my orders! Every time you press a W key, Bush knows what you're thinking... Also don't listen to static in your phone - you never know who may be playing with your brain. Some folks did that and wound up voting for W.

Ask Al Gore A Question On Technology

Brother Wachowsky
Dear Al,
My computer is loaded with spyware, what can I do?

-------------------------------------------------------------

Image
You have come to the right place, Comrade, as it was I that actually invented spyware, one weekend while I was tinkering in the garage with my telescope.

Yours, Al

 

 

Dazzled and confused
Comrade Al,

I am trying to network together several computers running different operating systems and hardware. A Mac running X, a PC running Linux, A windows 98 computer, an OS/2 machine, my palm pilot, and one running MSDOS 3.1. Should I use Samba to tie them all together?

-------------------------------------------------------------
Image
As you know, Comrade, you have come to the right place, as it was I that actually invented the Internet, and the Internet is just one big network. As for your question about using Samba to tie them altogether, NO. I just don't see how a dance is going to help here. What I would suggest, and I hope I am not getting too highly technical here, is that you go down to Radio Shack, and buy either some wire, or one of them wireless things.

Yours, Al

P.S. Make sure you plug it into one of these things.

Steve Jobs
[html]Al,
do you think the Microsoft and Billy Gates are evil?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Of course not. B. Gates and Microsoft are a fine company, which is allowed to make a profit, as that is the American Way. Now, that being said, Gates is one of the richest men in the world. His company has employed unfair practices against others. It is up to us as Democrats, to make sure that all the profits of MS are eventually siphoned off, in extra taxes and court judgments. After all, the filthily rich must be made to pay their share of taxes.[/html]

 

 

Billy Gates
[html]Hi, I am Bill Gates. Here at Microsoft we strive to deliver Good Software, at fair and reasonable value. Al, with your vast experience as inventor of the Internet, I was wondering if you would accept the multi million dollar post of Vice President in charge of Tax reduction, here at Microsoft?

----------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Hi Bill, or should I call you boss? I accept your offer, as I know that I bring the talents that you require for this position. Yes, taxes are way too high for a company that works on such a narrow profit margin as Microsoft.[/html]

 

 

[html]Dear Al,

Is it true that you and the Brady Campaign are developing a secret satellite system to identify gun owners and terminate their existence? Is fellow Comrad John Kerry assisting you?

Commie Carl

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Yes, the new top secret satellite will be gathering intelligence of huge importance to the Party. Termination will come shortly after the Revolution. This new satellite is powered by solar only as we don't want to pollute outer space, and is painted with green lead-free biodegradable latex paint. However, the new 6-ton People's Computer that I invented to pilot the satellite into orbit has stopped working after the technicians painted the motherboard with the remainder of that same green paint. The paint manufacturer is currently being sued by a team of dedicated trial lawyers. In the meantime we have deemed it wise to narrow our search for experienced pilot, one without fear in the face of death, with doglike loyalty in hopeless conditions. Our first choice for this one way mission is Space Cadet Laika. I know he or she will do the right thing for the Revolution, and be volunteered for this mission.

As far as your question about John Kerry - who is John Kerry? Never heard of him.

Yours, Al

[html]Should we perhaps start a chat room on this site?

Comrade Betty

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Yes, we should use more of my inventions on this site. A chat room is something I invented while visiting a men’s bathhouse with my good friend Jim McGreevy.

I may not be a Homosexual-American like Governor McGreevy, or a Metrosexual-American like Senator John Kerry, or an Alpha-Male-American like Bill Clinton, but I’m proud to be who I am nonetheless - an Unbiased-Beta-Male-American. In that capacity I accompanied Governor McGreevy to the men’s bathhouse for the purpose of cleaning myself with soap and some of them fancy sponges, and in the process to meet some common homosexual folks in their natural habitat and hear what they had to say about global warming. What does that have to do with chat rooms, you ask? That’s what I thought too. Inside the steam room, however, as I was listening to some warm chatter while seeing nothing due to the dense fog, it occurred to me that the place felt exactly like the perfect society that we Democrats always talk about – you know - filled with warmth, love, mutual understanding, and common purpose. It’s the world as it ought to be! It’s the world as it might have been if Bush hadn’t stolen the election and betrayed this country! If we could only find a way to make all American citizens and undocumented aliens alike chat as warmly among themselves, naked but not seeing each other, or maybe wearing some pajamas and whatnot, it could be a world filled with love, mutual understanding, and common purpose. The Internet I had already invented; all I needed was to add an equivalent of steam room to it.

So I say let’s set up a chat room and full steam ahead!

- Al Gore

By Accounting

Not a chance. A 24/7 functioning chat room would require a team of Party-approved, ACLU-trained censors to analyze discussions in real time for political correctness. We can't waste people’s money on such wanton projects! Our North Korean comrades don’t use chat rooms, and we should be more like them. If you want the feeling of common purpose, go to the bathhouse.

Any computer that is made by degenerate capitalist warmongers like Apple or Dell or any of the other expropriators of workers labor should never have been in the possession of a Party member in the first place. Throw these computers out with rest of garbage at once.
I advise you to put in your requisition forms for latest CommuProl 3 TableTop computer.

This is the communal home computer of the future:

Proud Party member Comrade Otis with his new tabletop CommuProl 3.

The CommuProl 3 is only computer with Party Compliant fire-wall. This fire-wall will keep out all capitalist exploitation thus allowing you to remain free. Plus it comes fully equipped with new updated version of ICU2 spyware created by comrade scientist Gore and already indelibly burned into the ROM for your added protection.

 

 

[html]Yes Comrade Otis is correct about turning in the computers to the Government. At first I was uneasy giving up my non compliant operating system but now I have found the joys of the Goverment issues (and monitored) systems. No more junk e-mail, just e-mails from my friends saying how great this country is!!! Boy do I love living under this great Communist system. Long live the UN Chip used for compliance, this is really the way to live!

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">And to make this concept more agreeable with the voters we'll equip all government-issue computers with beer taps yielding an unlimited supply of beer. Of course to make it unlimited it has to be the Al Gore Energy-Saving Renewable Light Beer, which is easily accomplished by connecting a flexible hose to local urinals. The secret is in the special organic composition of the urinal cake, which is a trade secret involving processed hemp.

Linus Torvalds, the man who invented Linux, is a great inventor, only next to the likes of myself and Edison of course.

Also, it is Un-American to give something away for free. Let's just say that they know what their product is worth. I call upon the W administration to do something about this threat know as Linux. There must be something done for people who have been tricked into putting this junk on their computers, and now regret it. Linus Torvalds is a know computer hacker and probable terrorist who should stand trial for this act of vandalism known as Linux. And worst, he comes from Finland - what kind of a country is Finland? For all I know it's right next to Russia! And speaking of Tax Reduction, could you perhaps write the check to my wife's name?

Komrad Smirnoff
[html]Comrade Gore? What is to be done about the new Fascist Bourgeois power structure? Spellcheckers are their latest, and most worrying system of control. By defining what words are, or are not acceptable, the designers exercise control over our intellectual discourse.

The great Foucault charted the transition from a top-down form of social control in the form of physical coercion meted out by the sovereign to a more diffuse and insidious form of social surveillance and process of 'normalisation'. The latter, is encapsulated by the spellchecker. It has became the metaphor for the processes whereby disciplinary 'technologies', together with the emergence of a normative social science, 'police' both the mind and body of the modern individual.

As we all know, Spellcheckers were designed by the Military/Industrial/Microsoft Complex, with the aquiescence of the Raegan administration, in an effort to the keep the populace stupid and controllable. A classic example of Bravermans 'deskilling' thesis.

If you have a spellchecker then you will never really need to learn how to spell, just type whatever and the computer will fix it. You stay stupid, the corporations can control you easier because of that stupidity, and a new fascist state is born with unlearned dolts as the Sonderkommando!


-------------------------------------------------------------

A thought-provoking analysis of how the capitalist elite deploys pernicious technologies of control to keep subordinate classes in a state of subjugation through the process of deskilling!

For decades, postmodernist philosophers have been hard at work deconstructing the modernist fallacies of metaphysical realism and epistemological objectivism. As members of the cognoscenti, we realize that spelling and grammar, as well as the "standards" associated with them, are merely part of a hegemonic order of manipulation designed by the ruling class for the purpose of reinforcing traditional power structures and limiting the size of the discursive playing field.

However, as Gramsci brilliantly observed, cultural hegemony can only be achieved with the consent of subordinate groups. So, by adhering to the linguistic standards of the bourgeoisis, we are complicit in our own marginalization. Consequently, we have to continue to use all of the resources at our disposal to poke holes in the grand capitalist meta-narrative that has so insidiously and detrimentally shaped the worldview of the working class, causing the dispossessed to remain apathetic in the face of fascist encroachments.

For instance, the logic of Global Warming dictates that energy-guzzling capitalist economies should be dismantled by next Tuesday. That means no more computers. Who will then need software I ask you? So why patent something that will soon wither away along with statehood, family, and private property?

But don't fret! For that occasion I have invented an energy-neutral hand-held processor. I admit, the idea has been around for a while, but it truly takes a visionary like me to patent it just one week before it becomes the only device of this kind available to the consumer.

[html]Mr. Gore, I am writing a script for my job, and I don't understand why it is not working, it is in perl:
I replicated the code below:

Code: Select all

!#usr/bin/perl;

print STDERR "Welcome Komrade!  We would ask you if you want to start a revolution, but the decision has already been made for you!";

$revolution=1;

pause;

if ($revolution==1){

	   system "rm George W. Bush";
}

print STDERR "Congratulations komrade!  You have removed the evil nazi George W. Bush, and you have therefore freed thousands of Americans from the tyanny of making profit!!  Arabs will celebrate in the streets as they are now allowed to commit their freedom loving bombing runs against the US.  LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION!";

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">I can see a few things here that may pose problems.

1. It's a very fine script reflecting both the logic and the syntax of our struggle. But the grammar and the punctuation you may really want to look at. You must ALWAYS put the exclamation mark in the end of sentence, not in the beginning - unless you write in Spanish where exclamation and question marks, as well as commas, periods, colons, semicolons, and hyphens are all spelled upside down and backwards.

2. Consider replacing all those dollar signs with rubles.

3. Try running this script on the people's data calculating appliance (the Sovietnet standard GOST 1917-10) equipped with a 400X300 resolution Progress 1 monochrome monitor from the Pyongyang TV factory named after Comrade Alger Hiss and see what happens.

4. It actually might work within the Sovietnet and the Democratic sector of the internet. Non-socialist networks are too backward for it. Bourgeois computers have not been sufficiently conditioned for such progressive logic. We must give rise to the New Computer capable of processing progressive concepts, but the Bush Administration and the Republican Congress have eliminated programs that used to fund such research. The New Computer cannot be created under capitalism, just like new fuel cell automobiles that I had promised to my constituents cannot be created within the oil-consuming industries. It's a vicious circle that can and should be broken by the Revolution!

Just out of curiosity - why did you break all those lines right in the middle? Did you mean it as a white verse poem in the manner of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, Bill's and mine favorite book? I do appreciate the sentiment but let's keep it under wraps and hope Hillary doesn't find out.

I have been following the thread here in your column about operating systems with great interest. Could you tell me what in your opinion is the greatest operating system?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">I am glad that you ask me this question. There are so many good operating systems out there. My favorite of course is the Karnivoure Operating System. Invented for me, by me, in a few hours, one weekend, for a surplus government (Clay) junk computer, that I somehow inherited during my tenure as VP. This operating system, is used to retrieve data on all political opponents, and other subversives. Another good one is of course Windows 99, the rare Chinese version, which I have on my laptop. This machine was a gift of the Red Chinese Government, hand delivered to me by a Buddhist Monk. I was able to master the Chinese written language in about an hour of free time. Had I had more free time, I could have re-invented the Chinese language, as I know it. I also have a 3rd computer, given to me by my good friend Bill C., the most moral man in America. He asked me to take it home and get rid of the pesky emails that were on it.[/html]

What this BS about Karnivoure OS??? As VP of Tax Reduction at MicroFlab, a multi-million dollar a year job, I expect you to earn your keep. And promote the product, no matter how bug ridden it is.

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Sorry Boss, err, I meant that Karnivoure is just a temporary OS for the Clay system, until MS ports to it. However, Windows has come up with a new product that will be used by the Demokratic Party. Some of you will remember this as Windows 99, that was only released behind the iron curtain, for obvious reasons.

Al! My house is on fire! As I can't instruct the computer to do "Stop-Drop-N-Roll" what should I do to save it?

Well, if you're a revolutionary, you should hug your computer and jump out the window with it while shouting "Long live the Revolution!" The computer will save you in the fall, and you will save your computer in the process. Get Al's invention "Save-O-Matic" to enable this feature on your computer.

If you are a conservative, just push your computer out the window. In the long run, who cares? The internet is more important anyways.

If you're a weak liberal, you're scared to jump out the window, and you're scared the computer will break if you throw it out the window. And the computer won't save you either. So, pretty much you need to burn with the house.

Now, if you are a hard-core revolutionary, get your revolutionary pencil, which is much more valuable than your computer anyways, play the Soviet National Anthem sung by the Black Sea Choir, stand at attention, and sing along while the flames take you away to the land of the Revolution!

An Innocent Query
[html]Dear Al,

In San Francisco at an "assembly of international mayors," the Washington Post quotes you as saying:

"We are witnessing a collision between our civilization and the earth, a transformation of the relationship between our species and the planet," Gore warned. "Is it only terrorists that we're worried about? Is that the only threat to the future that is worth organizing to respond to?"

I have studied all your writings, and consider you a true genius. When you say our civilization and Earth are going to collide, does that mean that our civilization is not on Earth? I do not understand the time-space continuum and global warming the way you do. Do these two things create a parallel civilization when juxtaposed? If our civilization is indeed hurtling toward us from outer space, how can we stop it? Is it ethical to send Bruce Willis into space to blow up our own parallel civilization?

Also, I must address the terrorist issue. Are the terrorists a threat? I wonder because clearly though they might kill a few thousand, they do so where I don't live, so who cares? I worry more about millions of years from now when the weather might get nasty and affect my progeny. By the way, is there any chance that by the time global warming takes effect, our collective progeny will have evolved to require heat? If that is true, are we killing our children by <i>preventing</i> global warming? Can you travel into the future for me and find out?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Comrade Query!

If terrorism were a real threat I would've done something about it while in office, now wouldn't I? The fact that I did nothing about it proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the terrorist issue is a non-issue. It's a hoax set up by this administration to distract you from the real and present danger of climate change within a million years. Asteroids, flying civilizations, alien UFOs, and global warming is what we should worry about right now. The fact that this administration is hush-hush about it only proves that this is all very real.

As for your time-travel question, we can't waste earth's non-renewable resources for every such inquiry. If I say we must close all industries, eliminate division of labor, and return to sustenance farming, it must be sufficient proof for you that this is our only way to salvation.

[html]To: An Innocent Query

You are on the right track when you write "I worry more about millions of years from now when the weather might get nasty and affect my progeny." but the official Party line is that the weather has already changed and is already nasty. As a case in point: statistically the overall world temperature has increased by about .5 degree Fahrenheit over last hundred years. The Party line is that this has caused terrible hurricanes, drought and even (though only a .5 degree temperature change) has so warmed the atmosphere that it is causing it to snow in Antarctica where it used to be too cold to snow most of the year. Never mind other places in the world where it has been too cold to snow and never mind that we're in an interglacial period and the overall world temperature has been rising (and sea levels too) for the last 15,000 years. That doesn't matter. The issue isn't the issue - the revolution is the issue. We have to destroy capitalism and a good way to do it is to tax and regulate it into the dirt. So please to keep to Party line: Global warming is happening now! Save the planet! Please to act hysterical.

[html]Dear Algore,

Have you ever thought of inventing a new voting machine? Everyone knows that the Republicans have been stealing elections with the use of Diebold republican built voting machines. Can you build a better one for our side?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Comrade Otis,

Let us not be trapped into the Republican way of doing things. Their diabolical mechanical voting boxes are not the answer. Think outside the box and look for answers in nature!

Bees don't have elections. They are perfectly happy toiling in their collective hive, feeding their beloved queen bee, and not questioning the authority of the drones.

Another way to do it is for all of us to learn transcendental meditation from Buddhist monks and communicate our collective will to the proper people's representatives, such as, ACLU, who will then announce to us who the president should be, and appoint cabinet members.

Since our American democracy has miserably failed, we should be looking up to other countries and see how they do it. Take Iran, for instance. Their Governing Council of mullas is like our electoral college, only it selects the candidates not after, but BEFORE the elections. That's what I call putting the horse before the cart! We have been doing it backwards for over 200 years and will keep doing it wrong if we keep electing presidents who are uneducated and uncurious.

Yours, Al

[html]I've been thinking about the new voting machine. If you invent one I think its specifications should include the ability of the machine to use current socioeconomic factors and proportional analysis to tabulate the votes. The voting machine of the future won't even require voters! Can you invent that?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Excellent point! I will forward your inquiry to my dear friend Rep. Charles Rangel, who is an expert in proportional representation, so he may come up with some workable specs.

Mr. Warm Globes
[html]Dear Al,

Yesterday was very hot, well above what it is normally this time of year. Obviously, this is global warming at its finest. Sometimes I wonder if it is too late. I would like to build a "global warming shelter," but I don't know how. Can you help?

Also, I have been in need of a "global warming guide" to keep me safe in this hot and dangerous time. I have been using a "disaster guide" from the 1950's and have found it helpful. While "duck and cover" manoevers have provided little benifit, "stop, drop and roll" manoevers have provided quite a cooling effect. Perhaps in the fture humans will roll around to stay cool?

I may have some advice for you, even though I'm not the person you were asking. There is a "global warming guide" out now (although it may be hard to find) called the "Green Hoax Effect" by Peter Sawyer. It will inform you on what you need to know.

[html]Great idea, global warming shelters. Like old bomb shelters. If you build one underground in your backyard and make it out of concrete it should keep you very cool. You could even have a little pool down there with a wet bar. Building these "global warming shelters" could become a whole new industry. Just goes to show that climate change and global warming can create jobs and make people money. Thanks for the idea!

[html]Dearest Albert,

I really think you should be spending more time on these technically enhanced voting machines. You know, the ones with the paper reciept for each and every voter. This is a must do. Just think. We can forge paper reciepts all day and night, and show up and protest every election from now until the cows come home, or decades, whichever is longer. Once we get Democrats back in power where they belong, the forged paper reciept will be our ticket to nulify every future election. Democrats will reign forever, Socialism will take hold in every household, and the privledges will be limited to the few of us who truly deserve it. Think about it, before the Pigs do. Now then, would you like me to bake you some cookies?

Yours Truly
Silence D.

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Dear D,

Paper is made of trees. It's easy to get lost in the trees. The trees don't let you see the forest. We must be able to see the forest. Let's get rid of the trees so we can see the forest. There's a lot one can learn from Buddhist monks. Like, what's the sound of one man voting? Buddhist monks meditate collectively. That's why they are smarter than us. Buddhist monks don't vote. A million years from now we won't either.

As for your other query, I have set up my system to block all cookies for safety reasons. I suggest you also delete yours.

I hope this helps,

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Dear Ted,

My Current Channel is a progressive mix of MTV and news bits broken down into attractively packaged morsels, eazy for the young people to swallow.

The motto of Current TV is - "SO LTTLE TO SAY, SO MUCH TIME!"

Regardless, it brings money by virtue of being bundled with other news channels and sold to customers whether they want it or not. I only had to call it "news channel" and put my personal weight behind it. Even if its only programming was reruns of the same slideshow of me and Tipper vacationing in North Korea, with zero viewers, the channel would still generate profit.

Instilling guilt into corporate executives always pays! BIG TIME!!! Hahahaha! The best investment you can make is one that manipulates people's minds. It gives you power. But enough preaching to the choir, Ted. Gotta run and invest Current profits into my new business that sells carbon offsets.

Steve Jobs wrote:Al,
do you think the Microsoft and Billy Gates are evil?

Of course not. B. Gates and Microsoft are a fine company, which is allowed to make a profit, as that is the American Way.

That is the Amerikan way? Surely Komrade Gorovich, you are not serious. If this is some kind of joke, I need not remind you that the Comintern does not have a sense of humor about party doctrine.

The so-called Amerikan way is the greatest evil know to the workers. It exploits the surplus value of the workers' very sweat and blood to turn it to profit for the bosses, such as the arch Kapitalist, Gates. Please clarify or see your local political officer for immediate re-education.


Komrade Ralph,

I would like to thank you for reporting this thoughtcrime. Do not worry, the one known as Steve Jobs has already been apprehended by the ALCU. While the one known as Steve Jobs provided an artsy product for vast sums of money, the fact remains that he is a capitalist pig, no better than Gates. The party has also taken over the Apple factories. Expect a C-Pod in the mail within the week. It will be of course, red.

[html]Dear Worthless Al-Gore,

You give TPC a bad name. Where are you? You have not answered a question in almost a year. That's quite embarrassing. Why do you even have a technology Q&A forum? At first I thought, "This is a good way to break people in to the world of socialism and communism. Teach them patience, even if they are only waiting for more misery."

Then another thought occurred to me. When you're not around to answer questions, people start to achieve on their own, thereby skipping the middleman so to speak. Is this what you hope to achieve? An technologically independent populace??

At least get a ghost writer. You are a hack, and you're an embarrassment to the internet. Won't be long or the readers of this once fine publication will be lost. You're a lazy, fat, incompetent boob.

<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">My dearest friend and fellow traveler Union Boss,

Why don't you get your own column at the People's Cube? Then try to fly around the world promoting Global Warming (GW), making movies about GW, running a TV channel that advertises GW, and setting up scam corporations that capitalize on people's scares and guilt about GW? All that is only a side dish to my main course - since my true calling is inventions!

I had to restrain my creativity. My inventions have become more pragmatic. I needed to answer those critics who accuse me of burning too much jet fuel. They call me a hypocrite only because I'm asking them to sacrifice while I myself operate a jet-fueled barbecue grill on my property.

Image

There's no point explaining that I need a jet barbecue grill to feed the multitudes of visiting elite donors whose contributions will be used to fight Global Warming by releasing more advertisements asking you to sacrifice - and when more people begin to sacrifice, this will offset my barbecue emissions in less than ten years!

My answer to them was my invention of a new jet that uses one engine instead of two!

[html]Al,

Thanks for finally finding a computer connected to the World Wide Web. I see you did not challenge my assertation that you are a fat, lazy, incompetent boob. Wise, since the worlds scientists have come to the consensus that you are just that. You know all too well, you cannot debate a consensus of scientists.

That being agreed upon, onto more pressing matters. Union Card Checks. As you know, the smartest labor leaders of our great Peoples State have found a possible loophole when organizing union votes among the un-represented masses. Instead of getting everyone together to cast a secret ballot on whether or not to unionize, we (the great union leaders) have suggested to law makers to allow us to use card checks.... (when not authorized by Employers) Simple signed cards collected by union minions by force, err, voluntarily forwarded by the unprotected, underpaid, overworked masses. This would take a considerable amount of time and effort. How can the unions of Amerika collect these card checks, without sending union enforcers out to households? Is there some technology that can help us forward the collective intentions of the un-represented slaves to the National Labor Relations Board, without a vote, without a card check? Some sort of Union Controlled Mind Machine that can auto calculate the percentage of employees who wish to be represented?

I think such an invention would be a huge catalyst in regaining control over this country. Either such a machine, or some overhaul of NRLB regulations. Maybe that would be simpler. Come to think of it, such a machine could be used in all democratic elections. No more wait lines! No more Voter intimidation! (oh wait,.. we need that one)

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Dear Union Boss!
Of all people you should know that one man's scientific consensus is another man's political manipulation. It's not who does the science that matters, it's who distributes the grants, tenures, funding, promotions, and publication opportunities. It's done wonders with this little Global Warming project I'm tinkling with. So thanks for letting me know about the consensus. Measures shall be taken. The scientific consensus shall be corrected as noted.

As for sending union enforcers out to households to exert compliance, this will not sound so frightening to some if you present them as mere door-to-door salespeople. The concept is old and familiar, only the products they'll be selling will be new. Here, I invented something just for that recently. It was originally meant for Ted Kennedy, but you two are not too far apart, are you?

Allow me to introduce The Enforcer: a fine line of Brain Care Products that help to keep your brain free of harmful build-up. Includes a 3-Gallon jar of Brain Opener, Brain Build-up Remover for kids (approved by Teachers Union), and a Union BrainBlaster™ baseball bat. (Should only be used according to the DNC specifications).

The Union BrainBlaster™ can also function as a Union-Controlled Mind Machine that can auto calculate the percentage of employees who wish to be represented. For better results can be used in combination with a plunger or Makarov pressurized brain opener.

[html]Comrade Al:

I was wondering - how would technology impact your desires for universal healthcare? I mean, how would the gubmint make sure that everyone is seeking out and receiving all the preventative care that they are supposed to get? Would an RFID chip forcibly installed on their foreheads be most effective, or should a whole new agency of unionized gubmint gumshoes be employed to hand-write reminder postcards? You know, a kind of workfare for the 21st century? We know how easily email reminders can be deleted, so I think paper post cards would be the answer.

What say you, Comrade Al?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">It is a challenge, comrade. Not only that, but the army of unionized government employees working such a humongous computer system will require so many Post-it notes to memorize all the commands, directories, and addresses that we'll be left with no trees in this country in about two weeks of orientation. Just look at my work room.

Image

Instead, I think our healthcare should be based on the North Korean model of "self-reliance," a.k.a. the Juche Idea. The North Korean patients love their government so much that they hate to overburden it with some silly health problems, and would rather rely on their own resourcefulness. It works - and it's absolutely free!

Books ARE power, my friend! I love to curl up with a good book. The best book is that which matches your bookcase. Oak, maple, mahogany, the works. Then there are those new shiny things. One time I had to replace all my books because Tipper wanted to change our furniture from walnut to sycamore. The old ones made for great kindling in our six fireplaces, because we strongly believe in recycling. Then there's also the size to consider, the texture, the grain, and stuff.

I know a lot about books. But what's a power book? A combination of a book with electric blanket? That actually gives me an idea. No wasteful electricity this time. An old-fashioned hot water bottle will do. In combination with a good book you would want to curl up with. Upgrade to this!

[html]Dear Al

Greetings from down under, Saviour Al. Firstly, I must explain some "down under" terminology to avoid confusion for you Amerikkans. In 'Stray-ya, "Liberal" is the fascist bourgeois kapitalist-loving environment destroying Kristian Right. When you say "Liberals" however you are referring to us, the good guys of the progressive revolution. Down under we are referred to derogatorily as "Bleeding heart Lefties" a term which of course I do not use. Or sometimes "Politically Correct Left" or "Labor-voting, tree-hugging, queue-jumping Asian perverts". When will the bourgeois ever learn flattery will get them nowhere!

Messiah Al you may remember when you flew down here in your lentil-powered jet to frighten us into saving ourselves from overheating into a gooey mess of failed kapitalist policies, bronze suntanned bodies and massively endangered ecosystems, you were interviewed by the Publikk BRoadcasting Authority, the ABCDEFG. I just want to encourage you by saying that even my conservative mother (sigh, if only I could change her) admired your "elegant articulation, when compared to that yokel cowboy GW Bush". Sadly, she broke her hip and was unable to get to the hospital because she sold her car from fear of greenhouse gas emissions. She will die knowing she helped the planet. And in lots of pain.

The only shameful thing about our welcoming you was the increase occurance of people using your name as a cuss word. Many times I heard people banging their finger with a hammer and saying "OW....Gawww!!", instead of the preferred 'Stray-yun curse using the name of Jesus (the first Palestinian Suicide Bomber). What has happened to our proudly secular nation who once ridiculed Kristianity as a national hobby? What happened to celebrating secularity by marginalising Kristians whilst kissing the bums of our revolutionary friends from the progressive Religion of Peace? Well, that's what you get for becoming a prophet of such high standing.

You, I mean. Not Jesus.

Thank you for your help on bio-diversity projects. You will be pleased to know that this week we prevented the building of a private surgery to save an endangered ecosystem of little brown frogs.

Where was I? Oh yes...I realise this has nothing to do with technology, although I would mention I used a computer to write this. I just wanted to talk to you. You had me at hello.

I missed my home a lot in Australia too, so every night before going to bed I would stand on my head for a couple of hours and it helped me mentally to stay in touch with my constituents Up Over Here in the United States.

And yes, I heard Ow....Gawww a lot while there. I knew they were greeting me because before the trip I had ordered reruns of "How to speak Australian" video tutorials on my Current TV channel just so I could brush up on it. and it helped.

I'm glad Australian people know how to use computers despite them living so far away and such. I hope that after typing this post you immediately unplugged your monitor so that the glare wouldn't attract into your room endangered Australian species such as Koala and those little brown frogs.

Yesterday, the conservative/Christian/fascist radio talk show host Michael SSavage was boasting yesterday that Marxists in France were claiming to have scientific proof that global warming is not real, saying you were exploiting your movie for personal gain. My problem is that as an open minded socialist Demokrat, I am unable to think for myself. Who do I believe? You, the legitimate president of the U.S.S.A., inventor of more gadgets than Thomas Edison (did you invent Edison too?), or our comrades in France, the leader in the fight against U.S. imperialism and democracy. Or is it possible that these "Marxists" denying you are a capitalist/RepugliKKKan invention to discredit you? Please help me!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Now, now! It's not as bad as you think. Like I said at the Oscars, Global Warming is no longer a scientific issue but a moral issue. And moral in Marxism is everything that advances Progress™. It's similar to Global Warming - if it's hot it's Global Warming, and if it's cold it's also Global Warming. If you see a cloud in the sky it's Global Warming. Even if it's not true but it helps to raise awareness, it's moral to keep saying it.

So if the French Marxists decided that it's beneficial for Progress™ to denounce Global Warming in that particular place on that particular Tuesday, this probably helps them better to advances Marxism. I'm sure they will embrace Global Warming again when it becomes beneficial for Marxism in France, or by next Wednesday - whichever comes first. Because, comrade, the issue is not the issue - the Revolution is the issue.

Moral relativity, comrade, is the best invention since sliced bread and lobotomy.

[html]Dear Goracle,

I write you in dismay over these anti-warming degenerates who continue to push their political cause celebre by denying the absolute truth -- that global warming is due to humans and will cause the oceans to rise in anger thus drowning us all.

I have seen one particular clan of skeptocrats (passing themselves off as members of the brotherhood of climate workers no less) claiming that the SUN is warming us all rather than our corrupt polluting capitalist entities! How silly and absurd -- even the young comrades in my people's housing and detention complex can tell you the sun is hundreds of thousands of miles away! Would a space heater work from outer space? Pshaw!

I DEMAND an inquiry -- even SPORTS ILLUSTRATED has seen the truth in Global Warming. The brilliant and willowy Cameron Diaz has lectured extensively with you on the topic. Will men like Halliburton never learn?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">But you gotta love the SI cover, Doctor! The message is nice and simple: You stupid beer-soaked baseball fans, you don't care about the penguins, you don't care about the polar bears and Kilimanjaro? So we'll flood your stupid redneck baseball field with water, how about that? Will you listen to us now? We're changing the rules! Time to pay attention. The vengeful God of Global Warming will flood every single sports arena and smite the nonbelievers! Mwahahahahaha!!! Something like that.

Image

But I still like May 2006 Vanity Fair cover better. Al Gore with Julia Roberts, George Clooney, and RFK Jr. "A threat graver than terrorism: Global Warming" You can't beat that.

Image

Don't worry about the skeptocrats. I just finished a new book hat deals with them. You can pre-order it on Amazon as hardcover, softcover, audiotape, CD-Rom, DVD, and in combination with a hot water bottle.

I'm accusing the skeptocrats of exactly what I'm doing to them. Works every time. Just click on the cover!

[html]HillaryCare, which you supported, would have created a vast new monstrosity of gubmint bureaucrats who would direct and control all health care expenditures, procedures, etc., which presumes that every American (and illegal alien) has a "right" to Cadillac-quality medical services from cradle to grave.

Does this not conflict with your advocacy of Juche?

And is this not one more contradiction of yours - re your scolding of Americans to trim back their use of energy, while you remain one of the largest consumers of energy (along with fatty foods)?

Eagerly awaiting your clarification -

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">There isn't a problem in the world that can't be solved by alternative fuels. Example. Students of Progress™ know that every single problem in the world comes from capitalism. Capitalism is fueled by selfishness. Therefore, if we find an alternative fuel to selfishness, we can fix all world's problems. I have invented such alternative fuel - and it's self-sacrifice. But since most people may agree to self-sacrifice only occasionally - instead of the required 24/7 all year round - they'll always be looking for ways to slack off. A World Socialist Government must be established to catch those slackers and sacrifice them for the Common Good™. International research has shown that self-sacrifice and compassion work best when they are mandated and enforced by the government, in combination with planned economy and a strict but fair rule by a beloved supreme leader. Thus the most humane government is that which enforces a total and far-reaching human sacrifice.

So here's your alternative fuel to capitalist greed and selfishness. Problem solved.

Now, speaking about free Cadillac-quality medical services from cradle to grave, this baby runs best on ethanol as proven by our Russian comrades whose extensive research into cheap alcohol-based solutions is well-known. It also shortens the distance between cradle and grave, which saves the government a lot resources. With this in mind we invented a new alternative product that is now quickly replacing Kool-Aid® as preferred mind-altering substance of progressive elites:

Corn ethanol based
GLOBAL WARMING VODKA!

Not only is it a cheap alternative solution to life's problems. It also
• Raises awareness
• Promotes social bonding
• Improves determination to fight social causes
• Advances dependency on government agencies
• Creates a realistic illusion of melting icecaps
• Replaces the need for tedious scientific research
• Appropriate for all ages

May contain mind-control agents

[html]Ummm.... OK, Al.

But you completely avoided my questions about your consumption of energy, and fatty foods.

As you're intent on promoting your leftarded vodka, OK, I'll take the bait. If the general population all become alcoholics, won't that severely impact the availability of healthy livers to transplant into party leaders, such as yourself? I mean, wouldn't you have to mandate that a minimum number of clones be created just to provide for a safe, ready supply of organs such as livers, for harvesting and transplant into enlightened supreme leaders such as yourself?

Also, I think your promoting alcholoism in the masses is a real gubmint jobs-killer. After all, even with all the paperwork necessary for registration to get the vodka, account for how much you drink, when you develop symptoms of alcoholism and eventually die from it, there will be much less economic activity, hence much less taxes generated, hence much fewer gubmint beancounters, and so on.

I don't know what the solution is, Comrade Al, but I have full faith that you, Tipper and the rest of the loonbat brigade will do your best to solve these and other pernicious problems!

Your pal,
JonQuixote

[html]Dear Al,

Since seeing your movie recently, I decided to do my part to reverse the effects of capitalist caused global warming by leaving the refrigerator door open. Then I had the thought that a doorless refrigerator would be a great invention. What do you think, Comrade?

And what advice do you have for me that I might also be a People's Inventor?

Yours in Progress,
Jonovich

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Indeed, the doorless refrigerator is the future! The same revolutionary principle is already fueling the production of hybrid vehicles. It turns out that building a Toyota Prius causes more environmental damage than a Hummer that is on the road for three times longer than a Prius. Overall energy costs of hybrid vehicles also exceed those of non-hybrids.

But that is not why we drive them, right? We drive them to REPRESENT! Raise awareness! Heighten sensitivity! Because global warming is not the issue - the Revolution is the issue!

My carbon offset program is the same as the doorless refrigerator, so to speak. Except it has the potential of making me a billionaire, financing my bid for presidency over planet Earth. You must understand, comrade, that Global Warming calls for the creation of a controlling world government, and who of all people is a better candidate to sit at the wheel? That's right.

Think big! Think different! Doorless microwave ovens will soon heat your apartments in the winter, and doorless bathrooms will reduce everyone's time spent on a toilet, thus increasing overall productivity, encouraging people to keep more of their greenhouse gases inside, and allowing for a greater control by watchful family members over your use of toilet paper and the number of flushes.

Join us in the doorless world!
<br>You are a true People's Inventor, comrade Jonovich - even though the idea of the doorless world originally belongs to Yoko Ono. But Yoko Ono is too a true People's Inventor who has taught his wife John Lennon a few progressive tricks.

[html]President Gore, it has been unusually cold today for April. Was that white stuff I saw falling from the sky today snow?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Friend, the last time I checked, I work with technology...I'm not a meteorologist...plus, you've got to be mistaken. The earth is warming up, not cooling down. You must be imagining things.

Here's my advice...Take out your gas-guzzling SUV and drive through as many city streets as possible. This will warm up your area very quickly, creating very inefficient gas mileage while putting out "harmful greenhouse gases", and you won't see any more snow.

Al,

Something has been nagging at me for weeks and I have finally decided to ask. I am planning on a Union outing for the brotherhood at a local municipal park, and was thinking about borrowing your jet- fueled BBQ. It then occurred to me, that you appear to be using a V-8 engine. Or are you referring to the Fuel Injectors as the Jets? Very confused. Is the fuel some sort of a hybrid mix? I mean, where is the air intake for the jet? Where is the compression chamber and the turbine easily identified on a jet engine? So I concluded, since that is not a JET engine BBQ, and only a Jet Fueled BBQ as stated in your picture, that I need to ask where I should pick up the correct fuel composition necessary for such a contraption. Any plans for an actual jet-fueled JET BBQ?

I hope my questions don't dissuade you from lending me this contraption for the annual. My minions and enforcers look forward to utilizing your BBQ. Stop by for a cold one if your in the area.

Your good friend and Hard-Core Socialist

UB

P.s. Your BBQ grill looks incredibly similar to the Hemi powered V-8 BBQ grill constructed by Chrysler Group. I thought that YOU were the contest winner who submitted the idea, but why call it a jet when its a V8. Something fishy going on but my lips are sealed. https://www.gizmag.com/go/4397/

Dear Comrade al-Gore I'minthemoodforjihad,

As you know the polar Ice caps on Mars are Melting. Is that caused by SUVs and factories too? Is there some kind of Martian Oil Products that I don't know about? Is there an OPEM (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Martians), or is Halliburton responsible for this too? At what point are we going to begin our battle against capitalism on Mars or intergalactically?

[html]Comrade Gore,

I am concerned about electricity, especially since my local public utility keeps expecting me to pay for electricity. And they call themselves "public"--how mean-spirited can they get, demanding payment for a public and common good?

Anyway, I went out to check my mail on this cold winter day. When I touched the mailbox, I received two nasty shocks: one, from static electricity; the other, the termination notice for my electricity. Later back inside while shuffling about my carpeted floor with my woolens on, I received a couple more static shocks. And that's when the light came on (well, mine, as in, my head's, since my home's lights are now semi-permanently off):

Why not power my house by collecting the static electricity created by rubbing woolens and balloons against my hair and skin?

Comrade Gore, have I not found the true People's Power that will end forever the greed and oppression of Big Electricity by giving them a jolt of the Revolution?

-------------------------------------------------------------
<img align="left" hspace="6" src="/images/Gore_100.gif">Here's my answer. I came up with it during one of my Leer Jet trips to Asia. The place was crawling with useless, carbon-breathing babies. The babies are the ultimate mindless consumers. They don't contribute anything to society except waste, gas, noise, and general disturbance.They are perpetually moving obstacles that can trip you up and literally impede your progress towards a brighter, enlightened future.

So I thought, if babies are crawling around aimlessly anyway, why not slip them into static-generating pads connected to the community power grid? Let them earn their keep, sweep the floor, and protect the planet by generating renewable energy at the same time. I call it the TriplePlay™ formula.

Comrade Gore,

In testimony to my crimson gratitude, I have donated all my carbon credits, including a few that were arranged in the blackmarket down in Nodong, a two-hour mule-trek from utopian Pyongyang, to the Common Good. Unfortunately, translation into Korean is sometimes inaccurate due to scheming capitalist pigs, so it seems my donation actually went to a Nigerian doing business in carbon credit trading from the security of the Common Market.

I am at a loss and have turned off my thermostat as self-punishment. Yet do not fear for me, Comrade Gore, for I warm myself in the passion of "An Inconvenient Truth." Well, I actually get my warming at my female comrade's digs, since my electricity is still cut off. But, being omnipotent as you are, you already knew that.

In solidarity,

Comrade Tovarich

 

 

Dear Comrade Al,
In the glorious OS, Windows NT, you started using a Control Alt Delete combination to log on.

What made you decide on this odd combination?

Does it have an environmental meaning or political?

I understand that Control Alt W, would not NEVER work.
