    I waited all night for the call from Oslo telling me that I had won the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead, it went to a Chinese dissident.

    And now we see that the Conservatives and the Communist regime in China have yet another thing in common. Besides wanting to lower the standard of living for the working class and wanting desperately to get as many American jobs to China, the Communist regime and the American Conservative movement are pissed off about the Nobel laureate.

    Don't feel bad Nosmo, you're still in the running for "Worst USMB Poster".

    It's too bad that the NPP means not much of anything at this point. This Chinese dissident really deserves it, but now that the NPP has been so marginalized, fewer will really take the time to care about Liu.

    You may notice that in the Flame Zone, I'm never mentioned. I take pride in that.

    I tend to believe that, if scientific polling asked the question: "Is the Nobel Peace Prize a noteworthy, significant award?" only American Conservatives would answer in the negative.

    I suppose you can guess to the results of hypothetical studies. Or you can get up and do one.

    Dont worry about not winning the award. You haven't missed out on much.
