i was thinking along the lines that the 'prize' is awarded less to a person and moreso to a purpose. of course many people have their own ideas about what constitutes purposefulness. it would be interesting to know how the committee reached its conclusions, but they didn't ask me to be on it. i guess i wasn't good enough. LOL

You are good enough to be nominated, though. Anybody may nominate anyone - seriously.

You could even use it to make yourself sound important, like if you write an article or something. "Sans Logos, a 2009 Nobel peace prize nominee, had this to say on the matter..."

hahahaa true....

i guess i meet the lowest common denominator qualification, which, since i am a person qualifies me according to my own criteria above......there is however that pesky qualifier of 'purpose', which i have yet to discover.

hmmmmm, melliferal, you got me thinking..... and that could be dangerous. if i'm not careful i may rather end up on the opposite list over at interpol. and if i do, it would be purely by occident. laugh

all the best,

ron

This is about as valid as him having a birth certificate to show that he's even eligible to be the president, which is what I'd say is one of the most basic signs as to why everything is under question for a reason. This award makes sense as much as his apoligizing for everything America's done since slavery(exagerating), I wish I was there to pull him from the podium that day to apolygize for him and tell everyone that when he's intoxicated he feels guilty and talks too much.

He hasn't done anything but talk in ways to try and not offend anyone who supports him, he's a people pleaser. I'm black, not republican and HAVE MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE here in my room(and the search for his continues, maybe Indiana Jones will find it in the next movie). I find it offensive that he keeps being looked at as some grand representation for blacks in America to be encouraged.

As some comedian put it: "we didn't need Barack Obama to believe all things are possible, we found that out when Heidi Klum married Seal!"

His talk about war strategy makes even less sense but it's applauded. It's great that people want peace but it's not great how they don't see the reality of things, it's not a path of roses, it's a lot of work that won't get anywhere by trying to "tolerate" differences and holding hands. We ain't the ones strapping bombs to ourselves.... war is war, kids die, women die, innocent die, war is not pretty. Maybe real war should return to our shores to give America a reality check, our country does not get the full impact of war. Fine don't add more troops in Afghanistan, what happens when you try to do any job without the tools to complete it? Either support or pull out completely and let that country/region do it's part to destroy the world, make the choice and follow through... it ain't that hard. Don't leave our troops to die while you twiddle your thumbs, two choices... pick one mr prez. If things are left as is without reenforcement it just makes it a suicide mission. Obama gets his 3 day weekend, my friends over there don't. Do people really believe that if you leave those people to their own devices that world peace magically comes about? How? I don't know how many people see the holes in how the world is, I feel that most people are plain sheep, kind of still in the "Matrix". The civilian world only knows as much as the media can tell them. Maybe it's because public can't handle the truth of things, they don't accept what's right infront of their faces so why give them more to deny? I have friends who have physical proof of "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq unreleased to the public 10min from my hands but the blind like being blind. There are plenty of things the civilian world does not know or understand, I feel more at peace to know the truth.

Nobel Peace Prize, another thing that's lost it's integrity.
I don't see how he could accept such a thing when he knows that he don't deserve it and that there are others who really do, I'm not George Bush either, along with the rest of the planet but there ain't nobody notifying me.

I don't.

And the most the State of Texas will give me, no matter how much I pester or pay them, is a stamped piece of paper that says "Yes, we have a birth certificate on file for this person with this SSN and these parents". Thankfully, most of the employers I've given it have accepted it as a birth cert, even though it isn't. I'd hate to see what happens if I ever run for president, though.

"..HAVE MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE"

I have my birth certificate too, and I was born in another country. It just happens to be G.I.

I have to add my two cents to this topic. I was dumbfounded by the news that Obama won a Nobel Prize. My original understanding of this award was to recognize an individual who has made a significant contribution to our world, still puzzled why Al Gore won this award, that's another topic.

I honestly don't feel that Obama has contributed much to the contribution of the human race or something significant in his life.

I hope this award isn't becoming this common trend to just give a gold star to everyone cause we are all so special.

hi buddy,

i think what muddles it up, is the fact that the nominations had to be in in february, just after the inauguration itself, and it was kind of a 'bum's rush' type of situation. and my personal intuition wants to report that the committee was riding high on the enamorization that obama had actually been hired as CEO of the U-Sofa, and felt that from a world view perspective, he was deserving of the award because his inauguration was seen by the globe as such a 'new day' moment. as i said earlier, the award was given to a purpose rather than a persona. this is a celebration of moment in time when [from the european perspective] a bridge to the past has been burned, once and for all.

all the best,

ron
