Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm assuming everyone hasn't floated away. Good grief.
  • While you were sleeping, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to President Barack Obama. After nine months in office, he leads George W. 1-0, in that category.
  • And did you know he gets $1.4 million for winning that?
  • Nebraska and Missouri played last night in the monsoon that would eventually blow through here. I went to bed after seeing Nebraska not being able to score through three quarters. I woke up this morning to see they won 27-12. What happened?
  • I saw where Gov. Perry appointed the first Hispanic to the Texas Supreme Court yesterday. I'm sure race played no role in his decision.
  • And she's hawt. Here's a picture of her right before she started making out with Perry. (Trust me, click on that.)
  • What does the Governor do all day? That'd be a good gig.
  • Ever present TV car salesman Clay Cooley reminds me of Rick Perry.
  • We can launch a couple of missiles into the moon this morning, but we can't keep 114 from flooding near Texas Stadium?
  • I wonder if Jarhead and AnObiter are still blogging since they shut out the unwashed masses and made their blogs a protected gated community?
  • Nancy Grace vs. That Jon Guy, Round 2. If I had been Jon, I'd jump out of my chair and launch myself at her like a spider monkey.
  • I haven't been to a Friday night high school football game in forever, but tonight is the perfect weather for it.
  • Does The Home Depot have a new policy where every employee must say "hi" to you? I was almost greeted to death yesterday.
  • And they had Christmas trees up.
  • I haven't heard an update on Kendall Hill who was hurt in the plane crash this week.

Obama got over a million for talking peace during the UN security counsel meeting! Wow. But he also got elected president because he taled a good story and by being a community organizer.

Hopefully he will earn the money and bring lasting peace, but in the meantime I'm going to Cosco's to buy my survival food.

I have heard that the nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize close on a date that fell about 2 weeks after O's presidency began. Did he accomplish numerous and sweeping note worthy peace initiatives in that 2 weeks? The prize and it's selection committee has now thrown any credibility it had out the window in exchange for O's "change".

Saturday night live Jack Squat skit was wrong or the prize was awarded for doing nothing. Perhaps doing nothing brings peace to the world. Is this weird or has the world just gone really nuts?

Today's update has an update on Kendall Hill.

Yeah, I don't think the Nobel Peace Prize should be given out to someone who will HOPEFULLY accomplish something, but instead, to someone who HAS accomplished something. A little premature, don't you think?

Now if Nancy Grace wins a Nobel Peace Prize........that would be a story.

Obama must have the same body of work as past winners Henry Kissinger, Lech Walesa, UNICEF, Desmond Tutu, The Dalai Lama and Mikhail Gorbacbachev. Jeez. I even understood the Jimmy Carter award based upon his work after his failed presidency.

The NPP became a running cartoon these past few years. I blame the Michael Moore mentality. I believe the NPP's intent is to use their brand and capital (just like Moore) to prop-up a cause. No better than a Rush Limbaugh. And, I do not think peace is their main cause anymore.

Nobel Peace Price = on-line college degree.

Why doesn't Obama move to Norway where his politics are the norm?

From Wikipedia: "Norway's economy remains an essentially mixed one, with economic policies and, particularly, income distribution patterns strongly influenced by government intervention. There is still a very significant state ownership component in petroleum, telecommunications, and commercial banking. The state extensively subsidizes agriculture, fishing, some large manufacturing companies, and remote northern and mountainous regions with scarce resources. An extensive government welfare system redistributing incomes through taxes remains at the core of the Norwegian economic model."

The Norwegian parliament appoints the Nobel Committee. Surprised with their selection? Surprised that they hate Bush?

I wish I had a Republican taser to shut all the negative no-gooders up! It's gonna be a long next 7 years for all of you haters! Maybe yall should seek counseling and try and see what your deep rooted insecurities are actually caused from. It certainly isn't because of a black president who has only been in office for almost 10 months.

For all you haters that believe he doesn't deserve it, just maybe he received the award because they got sick and tired the dumbass president we had prior to this year...ya know, the rootin' tootin' yes man cowboy politician who believed that solving international problems involved ignoring the other countries...YEEHAW!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations President Obama on your very distinguished Nobel Peace Prize. You make our country proud.

The criteria for winning the Nobel Peace prize is liberal democrat or environmental nutjob. It is a joke. If Alfred Nobel knew that they were going to use this prize to reward partisan political hacks, he would have used his invention to blow up Denmark. There is no prestiege in winning this award...just money. Not accomplishments needed.

Anonymous said...

Not sure why I feel compelled to identify myself as liberal right before bashing a democrat, but here goes...
While in office, Jimmy Carter brokered a lasting peace agreement between Israel and Egypt (The Camp David agreement). He earned his Nobel Prize. Obama pledged to end the war in Iraq, to close Gitmo, and to stop practices like indefinite detention. Not only has he not done those things, but he has escalated the war in Afghanistan. I had tremendously high hopes for Obama and the democratic leadership in congress. To this point, both have failed to live up to their promises.

BTW Barry, republicans don't care about these kind of awards. The party of Bush and Palin considers intelligence as arrogance, science as religious heresy, and international awards as proof of elitism. They prefer awe-shucks ranchers like Bush or down-home soccer moms like Palin.

BTW II: anyone notice how fast Bush dropped the rancher disguise and moved to the most elite, arrogant part of Dallas once his term was over?

What has Obama done to deserve a prize?: He won the presidential race and has signed an ineffective stimulus package. I guess that qualifies him.

Jimmy Carter won the prize because he brokered a lasting peace between Israel and Egypt. I guess the requirements have changed.

When it comes to the economy you blame Obama even though he's only been in office for 9 months.

When it comes to the Nobel Peace Prize you say he doesn't deserve it because he's only been in office 9 months.

You can't have it both ways.

9:18, you may be jumping the gun a bit on the "It's gonna be a long next 7 years for all of you haters". We have an election in 3 years, and I'm sure people will see Obama for what he really is-all talk and no action by then if they haven't already.

For real, what has he accomplished since taking office except a lot of trips and dates with his wife at our expense!

All the press on the Peace prize while the senate bill will have $400 Billion cuts in Medicare including cuts to hospitals and nursing homes and cuts for precription drugs.

And $424 million increases in taxes.

Does Obama have to pay taxes on the million plus paid for the prize. Since he didn't earn it, perhaps it should be a gift.

Anonymous said...

LL Looney, I, too, am waiting for the action to match the rhetoric. Of course, the president can have all the right motives but, in this country, you must also get the cooperation of the congress. With the right wing obstructionist together with the weak-kneed Democrats, this is a tough road.

Yeah, I also noticed how much "brush cutting" W.'s been doing in Highland Park.

They can just keep blowing their hot air up their own arses, cause nobody else is listening any more.

Pretty easy to see that no matter what President Obama does, it will be chastised and degraded. The majority of Americans realize this with all the whining that has been given from the right and continues from the right...I wouldn't even consider their whining "news" any more - more like "predictable"!!!

1043 - We blame Obama for what he's done to the economy after having been in office only nine months. (Quadruple Bush's worst deficit, anyone?) Get your blame straight. And he was nominated for the Nobel after having been in office only two weeks. Prearranged, nu?

1039 Pshaw. I'm not upset, because I recognize the Nobel Peace Prize for what it is - a paean to UN-type governmental control. They gave it to Gore because of his efforts in promoting global warming alarmism. 'nuff sed.

956 - A step in logic, not a leap. It takes a strong attachment to one's political beliefs not to admit my point. A majority of Europeans hate America (also here) and therefore hate a strong America.

Obama received the Nobel Prize because nobody would be talking about it if some brilliant scientist who discovered a cure for cancer received it. Shameless self-promotion by the Nobel committee.

Nobody gives a rat's a$$ about the Nobel Prize. Really, how many people can name the last 5 recipients of the award?

Anonymous said...

Although it has nothing to do with the Nobel, let me point out that one year ago the financial structure of the world was seriously in question and the stock market in a 2 year dive. Since January the financial situation has stabilized (at least for now) and the stock markets are up some 20%. Not everything is rosy but it appears to me that nationally and internationally we're in better shape than the last administration left us. I'm just sayin'....

11:44 - do you truly believed that we are in better shape. Obama simply prolonged the imminent collapse by pumping BORROWED money into the economy. I remember reading that approx. 25-30% of the GNP is BORROWED tax money.

Simple analogy - I can't pay my bills so I write a bunch of those credit card checks to all my debtors. Great...my family is happy, no nasty phone calls from debtors. But is the family better off?

In 5 years, Obama will be a punchline.

Hey Wordkyle, I'm 9:56 (also known as LLL). Thank you for posting the links.

I looked through both articles. The first discussed reasons why people in other countries hate America; reasons given are primarily based on US government and business policies. I found it interesting that you would link to this article because the author is very critical of the US. See below...

"In conclusion, people still hate America and will hate America. Americans imposes American values on others, does many immoral things against other countries, maintain its monopoly status, and are the most self seeking and arrogant. These can explain why 9/11 event happened. There will be more and more this kind of event if America does not change its behavior."

Do you think this author's reasons for anti-American sentiment are valid? Back to the original point: I didn't see anything that referenced statistics confirming that the majority of Europeans hate Americans.

An interesting conclusion in the second link was that America's image eroded during the Bush years, but has improved during Obama's term. See below...
"Looking just at the countries that have been polled in each of the last four years, positive views of the US eroded from 2005 (38% on average), to 2006 (32%), and to 2007 (28%); recovering for the first time this year to 32 per cent."

I'm thinking that your statements about Europeans and the UN shows more about your negative attitude toward them than any perceived European negative attitude toward us.

Cuts to nursing homes will close doors because that is what happens when funds are cut. Better get ready to keep Grandma in the back bedroom like in the old days before medicare/medicaid.

$424 Billion over ten years in new taxes plus the cuts to medicare will only be a part of how much the plan will really cost at a time when unemployment is near 10%.

1244/956/LLL - My opinion of the validity of the conclusions of the article is not important. What is important is that other countries see those as valid reasons to have a negative opinion of the US. A circular but credible argument I could use is that your statistics prove my original point; i.e., Europeans love a weak America (aka "Obama's America,") hate a strong America ("Bush's America.") (Read Pg. 6 of the BBC poll for specifics. Other polls have shown similar results; I just happened to cite that one.) As I said earlier, no major leaps in logic required to draw the conclusions I did. Obama's "Apologize for America" world tour won him the Nobel.
