“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

I need to visit the Czech Republic

Now this is a dude after my own heart. Not only has he turned the Czech Republic into a business haven by instituting a version of the flat tax, there's also this story which warms my heart...

Prague (dpa) - Czech President Vaclav Klaus, a rare vocal global- warming sceptic among heads of state, is "somewhat surprised" that former US vice president Al Gore received the Nobel Peace Prize, the president's spokesman Petr Hajek said in a statement.

"The relationship between his activities and world peace is unclear and indistinct," the statement said. "It rather seems that Gore's doubting of basic cornerstones of the current civilization does not contribute to peace."

Klaus said in a recent speech that environmentalists' efforts to halt global warming "fatally endanger our freedom and prosperity."

He also said that rising temperatures may not matter enough for governments to throw funds at halting the process.

In a newspaper interview earlier this year, Klaus said that only Al Gore, and not a sane person, would say that mankind is ruining the planet.

I don't know who I like more John Howard of Australia or Vaclav Klaus. He's the only world leader willing to state publically what everybody knows, Gore is an grand-standing idiot, hell-bent on destroying the US economy, not to mention amassing a considerable personal fortune, to save the world from a farcical, imaginary menace...man-made global warming.

I thought we already disproved Global Warming? Why is Al Gore receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for one of the most outrageous hoaxes of our time? Al Gore doesn't care about our economy nor the environment. If he did care about the environment, he wouldn't be living in California, nor would he be driving a car. I don't care if it is less harmful to the environment, its still harmful. Al Gore is a hypocrite and a scam artist. He needs to be sent to jail, not given an award. I swear some people these days, I am just not sure about. Ed I like this Czech guy, if the Czech Republic weren't in Eastern Europe, and had a nice beach, I'd consider going there.

He needs to be sent to jail? Good grief. How old are you?

I am 20. Do you support someone who is a part of one of the most elaborate hoaxes of our time, scaring people into thinking they are destroying the earth, and that dooms day is around the corner, not to mention conning people out of millions of dollars in the process? Al Gore is more of a terrorist than he is a peace maker.

So are you going to actually support your belief, or simply attack me as an idiot for wanting to put con artists behind bars where they belong?
