Peace peace when there is no peace….update

nobel teleprompterI found it quite humorous to hear that President Obama won the Nobel peace prize yesterday.  For me it raises the question of what peace means?  How has the President brought about greater peace?  Has he healed divisions? Has he ended worldly conflict somewhere? 

Maybe he should have been awarded with the Nobel Prize for Literature for inventing the unique and remarkable slogan "Yes, we can" and “hope and change”?

Or maybe he should have been awarded the Prize for Medicine for inventing a miraculous Healthcare Reform plan that claims to save money while around the world, the same system is losing money and going under–with completely inferior care?

Or how about the Prize for Physics working to stop this world destroying itself due to global warming, when all the current scientific evidence is pointing in the opposite direction?  Just how short-sighted are we?

And why should he be overlooked for the Prize for Economics for spending almost $800 billion dollars to create a negative number of jobs in America, throwing away much of that money in government waste and graft?

You would be hard-pressed to find any person on Earth or in history, who has achieved so much in such a short time.

  1. Adel,
    I’m glad you found it humorous, I was just baffled. I know that the US has lost a lot of respect around the world in the last 8 years. George Bush’s cowboy image hasn’t played well in the rest of the world. ALL of my foreign friends were thrilled when we elected Obama. Because we’re “Big Oil”, most of our American friends thought it was the end of life as we know it.

    While I think hope is a great thing, it’s what makes us get up in the morning and face life, but, what exactly is the purpose of the Nobel Prize? Is it based on campaign promises and potential? Politicians can promise us the world to get elected, unless we see results, it’s just lips moving. Let’s see some results. Blind adoration is dangerous.

  2. I found it quite humorous considering the worthlessness of the bovine excrement that is the Nobel peace prize. Ever since it was awarded to PLO leader Yasser Arafat, the award was revealed for what it truly is.

  3. Adel,

    I would not be at ALL shocked to see him win the prizes for Medicine, Literature, Economics and Physics. His contributions to each of those fields is at least as large as his contribution to peace!

    “Yes, we can”! – I guess you CAN to anything when you have no shame!
