Re: OT - Big Al: Fact or Fiction?


This is a completely off topic post, designed to inflame and antagonize readers.
It is unsubstantiated and undocumented.
It is a compilation of exaggeration, disinformation, misinformation and outright lies.

To reply to the post, or it's author, would give them attention they simply do not deserve.

Feel free to copy this post and attach it to any applicable posts....
Let's try to cut down on the explosion of off topic inflammatory posts on this SWB-BSS forum.

Re: OT - Big Al: Fact or Fiction?

Oh dear. I struck a nerve. I do apologize. I did say it was off topic and only posted such a note based on very similar, very off topic items such as that imaginative conspiracy theory. I shall limit my information activity. I did title it so there would be no misleading the reader how OT this was.

However, for the record, each item is verifiable in several books, the Washington Times, various periodicals and documents of public record. I don't doubt G.W. has some interesting history items as well. I do not intend to use this forum as a distribution center and will not encourage others.

This site is however partly political in nature as a defender of off-road vehicle use, land use issues and other related off-topic matters outside a strictly technical site. I just thought (incorrectly) that a number of you feared the Vice President's position on your Jeep enjoyment and offered a couple more reasons to be careful of his possible presidency.

I would have posted this retraction sooner but I have been taken over by current events in Norfolk, VA. and am somewhat involved in helping situations dealing with the care of matters concerning family members of the USS Cole and activities of base security. I would ask only if anyone else reads this, to please pray for the lost shipmates and their families. "Sailor, rest your oar."

Re: OT - Big Al: Fact or Fiction?

How can you Bush supporters keep on pushing the myth that agore wants to get rid of our autos and close our trails?
I believe in some obsure interview he gave earlier this year, that he in response to the question, "would you close Jeep trails?", he replied "why would I, do something like that?", "I did after all, invent the Jeep".
So you see,.. nothing to worry about.

Re: OT - Big Al: Fact or Fiction?

He invented the jeep? I'd heard he was conceived in a jeep, and I know he claims to have invented the trail, but this jeep thing is news to me.

Re: OT - Big Al: Fact or Fiction?

Seriously? I think simply his exagerations come from his difficulty to admit he's human. We all make mistakes but some are under pressure to be just so perfect that they tend to over do their role to prove a point. I'm not trying to defend him, but that is one angle.

BTW - If he invented conception then we can put the birth control and abortion issues to rest. He can certainly control his invention.
