Just to clarify, he did not invent the internet. It was Tim Berners-Lee. TBL, born 1955, is currently a senior researcher and holder of the 3Com Founders Chair at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). He is also a Knight Commander (second-highest rank in the Order of the British Empire). Wiki him. While you're at it, look up Philo T. Farnsworth. He invented the television. These are good guys to know about.
Al Gore probably made that claim because he, like most people, does not know who actually invented the Internet. And continues to make sure it stays royalty-free. We (should) all owe him a lot. But he chose not to profit from it. Thanks Tim!
The man who single handedly killed Manbearpig.
Al Gore killed Manbearpig? Are you cereal?
Vice President under Clinton. Ran for President in 2000, he won the popular vote, but lost by 500 votes in Florida because the election was fixed by Jeb Bush and Catherine Harris.
If Al Gore was president in 2001, 9/11 would not have happened.
Former Vice President (45th Vice President), Global Warming/Environmental Activist, Author, Businessman, Academy Award Winner, Prime Time Emmy Award Winner, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, and winner of other various awards including a Grammy. Won the 2000 Presidential race but was forced to concede to incompetent, racist, homophobic, gold digging shit for brains Bush due to unfair and idiotic Supreme Court decision. He has his own website and more respect and admiration than Bush will ever get.
It's a shame that Al Gore wasn't allowed to be the President of the United States, instead we got stuck with that retarded shit for brains bible thumping cowboy Bush.
Al Gore NEVER said he "invented" the internet, this was pinned on him by the conservative media after he said he "helped to create the internet". Senator Al Gore was instrumental in getting congress to fund ARPANET, the pre-curser to the internet. He was only doing what all politicians do, taking credit for a pet project that he believed in and worked hard to fund.
It's exactly like saying Bush attacked Iraq, he didn't actually do it, but he was the main government figure that made it happen.
In his own words, Al Gore "helped to create the internet", which is true.
Vice President under Clinton. He Ran for President in 2000 and won the popular vote, but lost by 500 votes in Florida because the election was fixed by Jeb Bush and Catherine Harris.
If Al Gore would have fought harder in 2004, the American Taliban wouldn't have been able to steel the election again in 2004.
Almost president. Damn near president... *sigh*
I remember the 2000 US presidential election... that damn Dubya
. Damn Floridians; die, Jeb Bush!
Al Gore, you could have been the US prez instead of this moron Bush.
A decent hardworking guy who would've been a good president. Given the CIA warnings in August 2001, he would have worked his tail off trying to prevent 9/11
. I think he might have succeeded.
Would Al Gore have prevented 9/11? Seems possible!
