    Conflicts of interest, influence peddling, bribery, fraud, racketeering, market rigging, price-fixing, collusion, misrepresentation and hypocrisy have become normalized and embedded in normal practice. In many cases, the perpetrators actually believe they are doing nothing wrong. In reality, these people contribute nothing to society, they are parasitical, or even outright destructive. This should be treated as a type of mental illness. I am no expert in psychology, but the word sociopathic comes to mind.

  2. Bruce says:

    Politicians in the US can legally insider-trade. Not to mention use the taxpayer purse virtually unrestricted.

    Likely similar around the world.

    This is where their ‘fun’ starts. Everything after that is a bonus.

    I still can’t get over the fact that the democrats still don’t hate the democratic party

    I thought Bush supporters were dumb, but democrats are on par if not worse.

    I’ll never support another democrat again, and anyone in the democratic party that hasn’t walk out by now, you really suck!

  5. Marc Authier says:

    Big fat parasitic pig bought by arab money. The classical traitor. The funniest part is that its ultimately money coming from Middle Eastern countries polluting a lot with their oil production. This guy is a total whore like about all US and european politicians. Stinking imperialist pseudo ecological american pig.

    Watch to the end.

    I guess it’s finally time to take your autographed picture, above the fire place, of Al Gore down?

  8. Peter Jennings says:

    Everybody, apart from the uneducated and stupid, know that Gore is and always was, a loser. Ever since he “lost” his presidencial bid he has been riding this gravy train for as long as possible because he would rather do that than work for a living.
    He is a pathetic wanker, and was pulled from the same rancid sack as all the rest of pathetic wankers currently wrecking america and its people. Not only is he a onanist but also a coward, a liar and a cheating snake oil salesman of old. Scaremongering amidst the grannies and the very young and those who through inexperience or/and ignorance are an easy target for shyster inbreeds such as Al Gore.
    El Gall is more fitting. Now we know where and from whom Al gets his pound of flesh and to give this idiot 100million for a worthless piece of junk is just asking for trouble.
