    The Nobel Peace Prize is the biggest joke of all the yearly awards. It should be renamed the Nobel Global Government Prize, or the Nobel United Nations Prize.

    Hussein got the Nobel Peace Prize; so he did the most for peace. If that’s not a knee-slapper nothing is.

    Al Gore got a Nobel although I still have not figured out exactly what it is that a global warming hustler did for peace. Ronald Reagan did more than anyone else did to end the Cold War peacefully, yet he never won a Nobel. Gorbachev, a brutal Communist dictator who is now the darling of environmental fruitcakes got a Nobel. Had RR tied his efforts to environmental claptrap he might have shared the Peace Prize with Gorby.

    The second biggest joke in the world of prizes & awards is a tossup between the Pulitzer and Time Magazine’s Man of the Year.

    Don’t get me wrong here. Organizations are entitled to advance their political philosophy as they see fit. My complaint is that Socialists have successfully convinced everyone that their awards are the final word in every category. I’d like to see a little competition:


    Instead of Man of the Year how about Men of the Year. Liberals pick their guy and conservatives pick their guy. Anybody who cares about such things can go with the one they like best.

    And leave us not forget the ladies. Liberals even made a movie about that very subject:

    Politics aside, it’s time for every red-blooded American male to man the barricades in defense of the only awards that mean anything; Miss Universe, Miss America, and all of the Miss This and Miss That awards. The beauty in swimsuit awards (pun intended) is that bow-wows can’t fool anybody. Either the lady’s got it or the lady don’t got it.

    Time and the Oslo crowd have completely diminished the prestige that once accompanied their awards. Now they're simply vehicles to bring attention to themselves. Not a big deal as they're free to do what they want, including ignoring the reactions of rational people everywhere to their idiocy.
