Gore Enlists Fascist for Live Earth Concert!

Al Gore, the silly former US Vice President who is currently making a living as a rather large Chicken Little has enlisted Yusef Islam for his pathetic "rock concert to save the world" idea. Islam will play in Hamburg where they have not had decent ticket sales, in fact cover bands playing Chicago can get the gate that Gore's Hamburg concert currently has. Yusef Islam is the former British pop star Cat Stevens. The Catster is the man who once wrote and sang the song Peace Train and he has spent the past several decades calling for the death of Salmon Rushdie due to the fact that Mr. Rushdie once wrote a book that the Cat's handlers don't like.

I once saw Mr. Islam when he was Cat and he was alright I guess; I went with a date who loved his music but I have never had the urge to see him again. I did however notice Mr. Islam during the summer of 2001 when the Financial Times had a short piece on the Catster's demand that Rushdie be killed for insulting islam in one of the many books that Mr. Rushdie has written. The FT piece cracked me up; let me put it this way, if you are a member of a religion that allows washed up pop stars to issue religious death edicts then you may want to rethink the whole religion thing. Hello Al? Islam is calling.

So Al Gore has now enlisted the help of a washed up former top-40 pop star who has turned to threatening other artists, all in order for Al to make more money. Al, how much is enough? Mr. Gore is now so hard up for cash and attention that he is outwardly tied to hateful islamic jihad. Nice going Al. Mr. Gore's wife Tipper is a noted rock fan who once played drums in a band and has long been friendly with Mickey Hart, the drummer for the former Grateful Dead. Before a show at RFK ('94?) the Gores hosted the members of the Grateful Dead at the Vice-President's residence and Tipper took a wild, secret service free motorcycle ride to the concert on the back of Mickey's bike.

I had to add that antidote to point out that the Gore family is not a geek-fest when it comes to rock and roll. Al must know that the Catster is a scumbag jihadist; what the hell does Tipper think of this? Is the entire Gore family in on this anti-western jihad nonsense? Does Al Gore III even know what's going on? On the subject of Al III I will leave the drug bust to others but I must say that anybody who drives a Prius at 100 mph on public roads should be in prison.

Prison? Did you say Prison? Are you thinking Paris? As in Hilton? What, another clever Gore career move? And did distributions from family trusts (I am assuming there must have been one or more, thanks to Al Gore, Sr.) play any role in wealth building? Yes, I will be considering buying his next book, 0-100 Million in 7.5 Years.

That's great, 0-100 million in 7.5 years! The Jefferson Airplane had a song named 3/5 of a Mile in Ten Seconds and one of my cars will do a 1/4 mile in 14 seconds all day long (a convertible cannot go under 14 seconds on an NHRA track without the driver holding a drag racer's license) but 0-100 million, that Gore guy is fast! As to Al III, I really feel sorry for the guy, he likely has issues beyond his family but drug addiction is a serious problem in too many households in this nation; but still, 100 mph in a Toyota Pious, er, I mean Prious, is dangerous while sober.
