Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.
The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms. ARTICLE SOURCE
…this law that just passed in Arizona — which I think is a poorly conceived law –you can try to make it really tough on people who look like they, “might be illegal immigrants.” One of the things that the law says is local officials are allowed to ask somebody who they have a suspicion might be an illegal immigrant for their papers. But you can imagine, if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona — your great-grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state.
Then today Barack Obama went off the TelePrompter in his speech to a Quincy, Illinois audience about Wall Street reform. After saying that Democrats dont begrudge success thats “fairly earned,” Obama then ad-libs and reveals more about himself than he probably wanted:
Were not, were not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success thats fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point youve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if youre providing a good product or providing good service. We dont want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy. Source
Check it out yourself if you do not believe me: Illinois Speech
According to our President, illegal immigrants have as much right to be here as those who actually took the time to become legal citizens, and Arizona passed a poorly conceived law, which only enforces Federal law but according to Obama enforcing any law is poorly conceived because if you remember he said the same thing about the Cambridge police when they arrested Professor Gates:
So I think I have this whole remake America thing figured out. Let’s get back to Al Gore’s new home. Apparently Al and Tipper, according to Obama, have more than enough money already therefore I think it only proper that we spread the wealth around a bit (another position of our historic President). This is what I propose:
We need to truck in 8 families of illegal immigrants, along with ladders to scale the walls, to Al and Tipper Gore’s new mansion. Since they have the right to share in America’s wealth then they should be allowed to take up residence in Al and Tipper’s many bedrooms. With 5 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms this has to be more wealth than any two people need. The Montecito Police will not be allowed to arrest these folks because they were here first according to Obama and it is because of them America exists. We might as well throw in a few native American’s as well to fill up this mansion nicely since they were here before Al Gore was and that land has to belong to one of their great great great grandfathers.
There apparently are many who share this philosophy that gate crashers and squatters have as much right to be here as the legal occupants do. So what do you say Al? Mi amigo, Su Casa Mi Casa. Si senor?
