The Nobel Peace Prize
Well apparently anyone can win it, even if his or her so called “accomplishments” are represented only in a phrase and not by action. “Yes we can” and “change” are not copyrighted phrases but they seem to serve as constant motivation for an administration that gets nothing done.
According to the Nobel Prize website, the award was given to President Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”
Well considering that efforts don’t count as much as actions, I find this a poor, premature decision on prize committee’s part. Although I am of no authority to judge who is deserving and who is not, as an American with common sense it is impossible for me not to notice the current administration’s lack of progress when it comes down to dealing with important issues. With a stimulus bill that caused nothing more than economic waste and the possibility of a socialized healthcare plan, our government is merely postponing its responsibilities and not acting on the benefit of the nation.
But the prize committee awarded him on the basis of “international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” so for now he can be excused from his inability to govern successfully. President Obama can frequently be seen on television and within other categories of the media. His charismatic nature and good public speaking skills are undoubtedly ways in which he promotes his agenda as well as his image to the public. As far as his international diplomacy, he successfully shakes hands with important foreign leaders like all other presidents do in their terms, so I suppose we can give him that one…
What do you think?
Keep your kids out of school. And if you are a kid, keep yourself far away from the classroom. Not only just on Tuesday, when king commie fascist progressive Nazi-cuddling Empire-loving Khan-supporting butter-side-down-eating President Obama will be addressing schools that decide to broadcast his subversive message.
And what message is that? Well, it’s actually to work hard, stay in school and all of the typical stuff that my generation learned from Captain Planet and Darkwing Duck. But since no one has actually heard the speech, no one can actually accurately gauge it’s content, unless you’re anybody in the media, in which case you don’t have to wait until Monday, when the White House will release a transcript of Obama’s speech.
Or you could tell your kid to join up with P.A.S.S. Day (Parentally-approved-skip-school-day), a group formed by folks who also, presumably, will also dropkick teachers who even mention that Obama is the current president.
Or you could raise your arms in uproar over Obama’s “indoctrination and grabbing of your kids.” (As called by Glenn Beck) Or you could look at Arnie Duncan, the Education Secretary, and his letter sent to principals encouraging them to show Obama’s video (how dare they! the gall of people in Obama’s cabinet to support Obama!).
Or, and here’s the big one…you could wait until the transcript comes out! Maybe he doesn’t say anything about the kids going out and smashing their capitalist parents beneath ACORN-purchased tanks. Maybe he won’t use hypno-beams to turn all of your kids into homosexual illegal immigrants. Maybe he’ll just tell them to go to class, believe in themselves, strive themselves and drink their milk. But then, even if he did that, someone would find a cow with a spot that looked vaguely like Lenin, and accuse Obama of using communist dairy propaganda.
Though I did hear from a decent source that he just might use those hypno beams...
