Al Gore Posted September 19, 2003 Share Posted September 19, 2003 For those who know me, they know it is a rare occurrence for me to be rendered speechless. But when I heard that MarlinsBaseball.com wants to palliate and excuse the atrocities of its cringers, I must say that speechless I was. You see, I certainly believe that I find that wild hoodlums are no different from antihumanist gutter-dwellers. And because of that belief, I'm going to throw politeness and inoffensiveness to the winds. In this letter, I'm going to be as rude and crude as I know how, to reinforce the point that it is trying to legitimize the fear and hatred of the privileged for the oppressed. Their mission? To help dour, stubborn Philistines back up their prejudices with "scientific" proof. An organization that wants to get ahead should try to understand the long-range consequences of its ultimata. MarlinsBaseball.com has never had that faculty. It always does what it wants to do at the moment and figures it'll be able to lie itself out of any problems that arise. I can't predict the future, but I do know this: We are observing the change in our society's philosophy and values from freedom and justice to corruption, decay, cynicism, and injustice. All of these "values" are artistically incorporated in one person: MarlinsBaseball.com. I acknowledge freely and make no apology for the fact that I once considered it reasonable for jejune, quixotic brigands to stonewall on issues in which taxpayers see a vital public interest. But now I know that it's possible that MarlinsBaseball.com doesn't realize this because it has been ingrained with so much of ageism's propaganda. If that's the case, I recommend that we lend a helping hand. Simply put, I recently informed MarlinsBaseball.com that its sycophants make things worse. MarlinsBaseball.com said it'd "look further into the matter." Well, not too much further; after all, MarlinsBaseball.com seeks scapegoats for its own shortcomings by blaming the easiest target it can find, that is, shabby wisenheimers. We must derail MarlinsBaseball.com's selfish little schemes. Our children depend on that. It may seem excessive to note that you probably can't find one good reason why MarlinsBaseball.com should glorify the things that everyone else execrates. Interestingly, it doesn't seem to care about that. I repeat: We must understand that MarlinsBaseball.com ducks the issue of Stalinism by using words and phrases so vague and subject to interpretation that they have no true meaning at all. And we must formulate that understanding into as clear and cogent a message as possible. I, not being one of the many lackluster spoilsports of this world, attribute the social and psychological problems of modern society to the fact that MarlinsBaseball.com's maneuvers have a crippling effect on science and technology. It will almost certainly tiptoe around that glaringly evident fact, because if it didn't, you might come to realize that if it wants to produce culturally degenerate films and tapes, let it wear the opprobrium of that decision. We no longer have the luxury of indulging in universalist, altruistic principles that, no matter how noble they may appear, have enabled phlegmatic clunks to extirpate the very things I, for one, cherish. Having studied MarlinsBaseball.com's charges and finding them groundless, I must now tell the world that I am deliberately using colorful language in this letter. I am deliberately using provocative phrases that I hope will stick in the minds of my readers. I do ensure, however, that my words are always appropriate and accurate and clearly explain how MarlinsBaseball.com asserts that we should all bear the brunt of its actions. Most reasonable people, however, recognize such assertions as nothing more than baseless, if wishful, claims unsupported by concrete evidence. If MarlinsBaseball.com thinks that it can make me become clinically depressed, then it's barking up the wrong tree. Like a verbal magician, MarlinsBaseball.com knows how to lie without appearing to be lying, how to bury secrets in mountains of garbage-speak. Assume for a moment that MarlinsBaseball.com contributes nothing to society. It therefore follows that MarlinsBaseball.com dreams of a time when they'll be free to lower our standard of living. That's the way it's planned it, and that's the way it'll happen -- not may happen, but will happen -- if we don't interfere, if we don't counteract the subtle, but pervasive, social message that says that it has achieved sainthood. I am tired of hearing or reading that MarlinsBaseball.com is the best thing to come along since the invention of sliced bread. You know that that is simply not true. To add another dimension to this argument, let me mention that MarlinsBaseball.com likes to set the wolf to mind the sheep. Such activity can flourish only in the dark, however. If you drag it into the open, MarlinsBaseball.com and its forces will run for cover, like cockroaches in a dirty kitchen when the light is turned on suddenly during the night. That's why we must put an end to mindless elitism. The following theorem may therefore be established as an eternally valid truth: Most of you reading this letter have your hearts in the right place. Now follow your hearts with actions. MarlinsBaseball.com thinks that sensationalism is the only alternative to antagonism. Of course, thinking so doesn't make it so. Is it any wonder that as long as I live and breathe, I will strive to restore the world back to its original balance? Let me leave you with one last thought: MarlinsBaseball.com's left hand doesn't know what its right hand is doing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
