The Nobel committee continues to show its political and ideological biases. This morning I truly did, "laugh out loud" when I heard it awarded the Peace Prize to Obama. I thought, "for what ?" Then I heard the committee head speak on Blabberg and he said, in essence, for talking, for saying "words" that all want to hear. Europe loves Obama's smooching them and saying they he respects them now ... and will in the morning.
The Nobel committee is just being ridiculous and looks foolish; giving a purportedly prestigious prize for talking, not doing; ignoring people actually working and doing something for peace; and giving prizes for worthless talk. Lol - laughing out loud - yup, that's me.
Oh well, maybe they felt they had to make up for the Olympic committee's decision to brush aside Obama's lobbying for the Games in 2016. By the way, the track record of that prize committee is pretty bad as a predictor of future performance; it's really contrarian. I suppose that's bad news for true peace.
Je ne fais rien ... ich machte nichts ... nic nie robię ... estoy haciendo nada ... non faccio nulla ... nihil facio ... I am doing nothing.
Oddly enough, while reading the news I felt the tone of the news was changing this morning from that endless crisis blather to a more normal, general tone.
