Did you see what Samuel L Jackson said?! He said he voted for Obama purely because he is Black..... Not for his policies etc... I can't help but think a lot of people did the same.

It was all a sham anyway, Obama was elected by the media and those in true power long before the elections. Well alongside Romney, so people think they actually where voting. lol They where both financially backed by the same people, posted links the other day proving it...

Did you hear about Irena Sendlerowa, who was a runner up to Al Gore?!


This is what she did: http://en.wikipedia....i/Irena_Sendler


It's disgrace to humanity that Al Gore got the Nobel Peace price instead of her.

Oh dear lord that makes this much worse.  The woman was damn near a saint yet they give it to a man who is nothing more than a con artist.  It is truly a worthless reward.

For you. pretty much everything is a leftist conspiracy.

However, in this case, it does seem that Obama did not deserve the award. Before or after.

Why does anyone care who they give (or don't give) this award to?  It's meaningless to us in our daily lives.

If it's that troubling, feel free to create your own commission and have your own award ceremony.

I put as much stock on the 'Nobel Peace Prize' as I do the Westboro Baptist Churches funeral picketing schedule.  Both have their own agenda that is looking for press coverage.  Ignore it, they'll go away.

Are you saying the Nobel committee is not left wing to the extreme?  Yasser Arafat?  Al Gore? Obama?  Make your case.  LMAO

well speaking as an Absurd Leftist, even I find something objectionable ovwr Obama being awarded a Peace prize. it may have somethingbto do with him having literally done nothing to promotecpeace prior to the awarding of it, and sod all afterwars.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

From a lot of what i have seen of your posts hats you do not exactly fit the description of an absurd liberal leftist.That said i have not always agreed with your stances,i am neither right or left,but from everything i have seen from your and a few other self proclaimed leftist or libs from other countries the ideas are very different than the current meaning of those desciptions used about those in the states.

On topic....Always wondered what in the hell he did that was so damned special that he deserved this award.None can explain it not a Liberal...Democrat....Republican....No one

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Sir, you may swing slightly left but you aren't the type I am referring to.  You are reasonable and balanced and bring up good points that I have accepted several times. We differ but can argue reasonably and agree on many things and you have changed my opinion on occasion.  You are a JFK liberal and JFK would be considered a right winger by today's left, unfortunately.  FWIW.

as i understand it, the award was more in expectation of what he would do. Probably not their finest hour.

So that's why Al Gore won over Irena Sendler.... :rolleyes:
