Re: Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize

The politicians are a reflection of the people. When you have people like Hilary and Rudy talking about each other in their respective party debates instead of the merits of why they should be elected you have to wonder about the public. People don't vote their conscious anymore, they vote for whose they think is the lesser of two evils.

Re: Gore's potential policies putting a stranglehold on American corporations

American Corporations are putting a stranglehold on Americans. Special interests and lobbyists are the new policy makers, not the average citizen. If Gore wanted to put much more strict rules on, say, automakers, I'm all for it. Or if he were to force manufacturing firms to cut down on pollutants by appreciable margins. OR say improving health care so that we have a system the most advanced nation in the world deserves. Would such changes be extremely difficult? YES. Would maintaining this status quo on the road to hell be easier in the short term? Possibly. Is everything going to cost more? YES, it will regardless of policy, make no mistake. Are jobs going to be outsourced? YES. Unless there is policy written to counteract that. Say what you want but keeping american jobs in america was supposed to be a bed rock principle of this administration. Tell me that's happened.

I take it you would be for a national health care system then? Cause that's one huge factor that's killing American corporations (except for Pharmaceuticals and HMOs of course).

Re: Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize

Is anyone else sick of hearing about terrorism? I mean, let's be honest. I know we were attacked 6 years ago and it was a horrible event. (I was in the Navy before and during the attack, I chose to serve my country before any Sept 11 upswell in patriotism, so don't question my loyalty here) But that attack was probably the most beneficial thing that could have happened to all of the Neo-Conservative Defense Contractors and the people (i.e. politicians) they employ. How many shady policy decisions have been made under the guise of defending freedom and stopping terrorism? I don't want to hear that word in the next election. We have the strongest, most highly trained, most well equipped military in the world and it's not going to shit no matter who's in power, no matter what FOX News tells you. We've spent 6 years focused on nothing but national defense. Let's take care of some other pressing needs. Examples would be Healthcare, Social Security Reform, Drug Policy, Education Reform, etc...

But he doesn't want discussion. Or not really a discussion in the traditional sense. He and the rest of the global warming doomsayers want nothing to do with a rational discussion. They have either already made up their minds and commited extensive resources and/or personal credibility or they are part of a growing sect of science that has picked the side which guarnatees them the most money/success regardless of truth or science. There is a counter group too by the way funded by big oil types. Neither of these groups wants a true discussion of the science here. They want to force one point of view down everyone's throat when neither point of view has much in real hard science to support it unconditionally.

The three were granted the prestigious prize, prematurely as it turned out, for their roles in the historic Oslo Accords signed the previous year and their committment to the Peace Process envisioned by the Accords. After generations of warfare and terrorism, it seemed peace was at hand.

There has been much negative press suggesting Gore's lifestyle does not support his.......Green acclaims. Gigantic inefficient house's, private jets, HUGE carbon footprints trampling all he claims to be protecting, etc.

BTW, if you are considering Gore as your guy, the National Repulican commitee has asked me to notify you, that your Republican license to practice in this hemishere has been revoked.....forever.
Congrats, you are now a Dem
I do not care who wins the nobel peace prize, mainly because of Arafat winning it years ago...but it seems to be more a joke than anything.

I have read about that lifestyle that Gore leads as well, and considering the massive amount of "truth stretching" he did in his first campaign (or flat out dumb comments like "I invented the internet") it leads me to believe that he is full of shit. He craves attention. (just look at the manbearpig fiasco...lol, jk) He'd be an absolutely horrible choice, and there are plenty of Dems I'd vote for over him...then again, if I EVER vote for a dem, just shoot me on the spot!

That's funny...I didn't see your post, but obviously we are on the same wave length cause I just made a comment about manbearpig too. LOL.

I wouldn't take the "award" seriously. There have been several questionable winners. Gore is just the latest. And while I agree with his climate issues, why would you get a "peace" prize for it. It has nothing to do with peace, it has to do with our environment.

Arafat is probably the worst award winner ever, but there are other "not so good" picks too.

ElBaradei won a few years back for his efforts to prevent nuclear ability in the military (like he did anything significant), and yet he's a nuclear energy advocate. So it's OK to have it, just not use it for military reasons. OK...that's like saying, hey, here's a condom and a willing beautiful woman, but you can't have sex with her.

Back about 20 years ago, some group called Physicians for the prevention of nuclear war won...no one really knows why either, other than, it's a cool "peaceful sounding" name.

El Sadat in the late 70's.

Sakharov in 75, he was a russian nuclear physicist for pete's sake. He gave Russia a lot of information that could have killed hundreds of thousands, and he wins a peace prize?

Don't remember any that won before that other than Kissinger won, and MLK won one.

There are some that did deserve it, but the idiots that won kind of make the "award" a joke.

Re: Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize

I love how people are worried about their taxes. Take a look at the debt bill from the millions we're spending in Iraq per week. Yeah, you're not getting taxed for it, we're borrowing it, and China is buying up our debt left and right. Expect China to have major pull over the decisions in the US. I read a while back that if China were to call in all their debt right now we would be completely screwed. Granted, no country would ever do that, but still.

What's worse, paying more taxes or having another country own our interests?

Re: Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize

What the peace prize is for:

Quote:
When Alfred Nobel died on December 10, 1896, it was discovered that he had left a will, dated November 27, 1895, according to which most of his vast wealth was to be used for five prizes, including one for peace. The prize for peace was to be awarded to the person who "shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding of peace congresses." The prize was to be awarded "by a committee of five persons to be elected by the Norwegian Storting."
