Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize
Posted 09 October 2009 - 12:57 PM
Here is my nomination for next years award = Off-color remark caught by House mic = "Yet another member of Congress has been tripped up by an open microphone, suggesting on the House floor where a colleague who disagreed with him should "stick" his viewpoint."
BTW; I might not be around here for a few days because I am going to Detroit tomorrow and claim that I am a homeless person who has been a resident of the city for 6 months, although there are no records of that, since I have been living under a bridge, and get my $3,500.00 share of Obama's stash that they are passing out.
Note: Someone who will NOT get next year's peace award = } Man arrested after allegedly throwing girlfriend's possessions in riverhttp://www.johnsonci...le.php?ID=71620 = "When a deputy responded to a domestic violence call at the residence, he found Sheila Bowers to be very upset, crying and with her clothes soaking wet. She said Hoss had taken her clothes, toiletries, sheets and linens, all pots and pans, dishes and silverware, all of her personal photographs – including those of her children – and other personal items from her drawers, boxed them up and threw them in the river, which runs right behind their residence. Among those items were her diplomas from nursing school and her certification license.".

But... but... he hasn't done anything!
sudden left turn
Fun discussion at the Volokh Conspiracy about the constitutionality of the Obama accepting the prize.
Obama seems to have angered the gods of obscure constitutional provisions. First there was the possible Emoluments Clause violation and now a possible Title of Nobility Clause violation. How many non-lawyers even know that those clauses exist?

Don't forget your bridge card....
Federal prosecutors filed fraud charges this week against three people who worked at Jefferson's Liquor Palace.
The alleged scheme worked this way: Food stamp recipients would get cash from the store in exchange for swiping larger amounts off their electronic cards. The store would then be reimbursed by the U.S. Agriculture Department.
And in some transactions, the government says the store provided informants Viagra, liquor and porn in exchange for swiping about $2,000 off food stamp cards.
The government says fraud at the store topped $130,000 over 2 1/2 years. The store is closed.

On the other hand, he's managed to offend the leaders of Afghanistan, France, and half of Eastern Europe. ISTR that Merkel sounded a bit unhappy toward the end of the G-20 too.
Edit: And Honduras. Oh God, Honduras....

It's also a slap in the face to dubya bush. bush is much more eligible for the prize. After all he DIDN'T bomb Iran, Mexico, or Massachusetts! That took a lot of restraint. Just think how good it would have been for Halliburtan and the economy if he did! We could have had five wars going on now. People wouldn't be so preoccupied with health care reform, global warming, and the biggest depression since 1929 if they had more important things to worry about. Like total annihilation.
