Stop bitching, you're watching history unfold
    #11219879 - 10/10/09 11:33 AM (8 years, 9 days ago)

People in other countries are wondering why we're not drinking beer and kissing in the streets. Whether you like it or not, our elected president was just awarded the Nobel Prize. It's a decent negotiation tool at the very least.

Being all opinionated and upset that someone was awarded the Nobel is like hating on your neighbor's kid for winning the spelling bee. Love the guy, hate the guy, but at least be a good sport and raise a beer in congratulations.

No, this country was founded on the basic ideal that its citizens can and should criticize the government. Obama was given an award that he had not yet earned, and he deserves to be criticized for accepting it.


--------------------
The story goes, or the way that I was told
There was a king that always felt too high and then he fell too low
And so he called all the wise men to the hall
And begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls
But here’s the thing, they came back with a ring
It was simple and was plainly unbefitting of a king
Engraved in black, it had no front or back
But there were words around the band that said
Just know: This Too Shall Pass

even he knows he doesn't deserve that prize. He hasn't made any major difference in the U.S. or the world.:crankey:

No thanks, but I'll drink a beer and then piss on his leg.

Besides, many in the world are wondering how the fuck he won.  Ask Lech Walesa for instance.


Now, go back to sucking his cock.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

So many other people deserved the award more than Obama. Many people around the world think the same thing.

There's even a Time article saying he doesn't deserve it.

Yea give the man a peace prize for moving killers into Iran. A state office getting a nobel, wow. What was the reason? For just to make people feel good? I thought you had to do THE GREAT WORK in-order to be a candidate Like peace or sacrificing ones self. Obama has not sacrificed anything. Obama has only gained for him self financially and getting special privileges  from being in office. As far as what it takes to be a Nobel winner and judging from all the past winners who were great like Gandhi ect, Obama doesnt even come close at all. Hes not my president I am my own president and I wont raise a beer to him unless I am happy about how good of a puppet he is.

I'm not saying he deserved it, no one is... not even Obama himself.
But that vast majority of people are just taking this opportunity to rag on Obama again and not rag on the retards that gave him that award (the people responsible, duh?). And by rag on I don't mean criticize because that is never what birthers/tea-baggers (*cough*Glenn Beck*cough*) do.

Quote:

The word critic comes from the Greek κριτικός (kritikós), "able to discern"[1], which in turn derives from the word κριτής (krités), meaning a person who offers reasoned judgment or analysis, value judgment, interpretation, or observation[2].

He sure didn't do a whole lot to stop it... he could have done something back when he was nominated for the prize... its not like they surprised him with it, he knew it was coming.... you cant tell me the president of the united states cant get his name removed from a list of contenders.

From what I understand, his administration didn't know he was going to win it.  In fact, almost none of the predictions of who would win included him.  I read that we was called very early in the morning to be informed that he had won.

I'd like to know how echoesSG knows he knew... not that it really has any relevance, he clearly states that he accepted it only on behalf of the country/politicians who came before him.

You dont understand Prisoner? That right Obama a puppet for a corporate war machine does not deserve a peace prize. Sense hes a president of a foreign corporation which I am not a member of I dont consider him my president. If calling it a president I am my own. If you want to give a peace prize to some one to make them feel good , give it to the kids who have to stay cool when everything around then that thy love is blown up and destroyed. Obama you actually believe he the president cuz you voted for him and hes a good guy? Try to imagine what kind of people Obamas hooked up with. All the shit your against about government, Obama represents. Obama doesnt represent America thats impossible. Obama represents an evil artificial corporation (slave Law, citizen Law, commercial Law, that fake ass Law that you hate for taking people away with out a victim) No matter how much the press distifle decent and I represent the natural god given law so I wont rase a beer to Obama. Whats this our president?

Listen to how prez Kennedy tried to worn all the zombies before he got shot. You want to know about Obama and who he works for listen to kennedy cuz none of our parents did he will tell you who Obama is.  http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D_WSGwnz7XpY&ei=J5zSStagE4acsgPRjZHwCw&sa=X&oi=video_result&resnum=2&ct=thumbnail&ved=0CBAQuAIwAQ&usg=AFQjCNGED3yIrJwzqP3DKD1jcytN4M_4ow
