It is a choice whether to follow truth or falsehood.
I never bought into the Film “An Inconvenient Truth. “ Lets get that straight between us. I could make a long list of reasons for this as a businessman, film maker, Journalist, ex manufacturer, Science fan, Environmentalist, and someone who participated in the formation of some of the rules written by CARB. But my principal reason, was that I choose what I will embrace based upon the character of the person communicating it, and the tone of their message.
In my work in business and retail for 20 years, I ran across all manner of Con (sort for confidence) based criminals. I learned a lot about their modus, as my company had to work alongside the Santa Barbara DA’s office in prosecuting them.
Their methods are typically based on leveraging limited credibility to a perceived promised positive outcome. But in reality, the victim is always just that, a target where by the Con man achieves his goal. Those goals can range from an illegitimate grasp of power-authority, right on down the laundry list of assets the Con man would like to have handed to him. Cars, products, cash, real estate and in Mr. Gore’s case: latitude and credibility to acquire power, influence of a movement, and ultimately: money.
So when Al Gore, a man whose business has been Politics, was put up as a poster boy for a theory that appeared to be fear based, I saw it immediately for what it was. A confidence game.
I refused to follow him. I chose Truth instead.
This post is not really about Evil. It is about Truth. Jesus said this: I am the way, the Truth, and the Life (Light). He also said: I am the light of the world. The one who follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
So I looked at Al Gore: lot of darkness there. Not where I ever wanted to go personally. And this IS personal. This is all about personal choice and correct path.
So you can believe what Al preaches if you want to. But you may want to have a look at the latest mess to see who you followed, if you really do not want to take the longer path of educating yourself on Physical Science, and the tenets of environmental control.
In this report the victim reveals everything about Al Gore’s character. I believe her. Not because I want to. I would rather he was not what he appears to be. But in any event, I will not put myself in that sort of darkness.
That is the real and very inconvenient truth. Al probably believes his own lies. As most Law Enforcement personnel will tell you, most good Con men do. How else would they convert people into being true believers?
More truths from a Senate Subcommittee.
These folk’s view is ahead of ours in the timeline of eco based legislature. They come from a European POV. They made a film about it too.
So on this Fourth of July, do yourself and your country a favor. We are at war. Our men and women in the military, live and die for the tenets of this country. But behind the lines of our own borders, we have other enemies, and their strength is based on keeping the public in the dark, about who and what they really are about.
So make the tenets you select be Truth based. This is VERY personal. It is about choice, and yours matters. It will determine what happens to this country and it’s future generations.
I like these guys. The Shoemaker Brothers live their choices out loud. This song is based on Samuel Shoemaker’s own experiences as a US Serviceman. It is called Dancing Girl.
As an example of a man I would follow, there is Harold Estes.
Have a real Independence Day. Choose Truth. Walk in the light.
