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?

It feels as if this is already happening.

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."

As for Arafat may I remind you he won the prize WITH Yitzhak Rabin FOR trying to bring an end the middle east conflict. A desired and admirable goal.
Arafats' deeds were alot louder than his words. Some people talk about doing, while others actually do. Arafat was one who would say to the world "I want peace with the Jews" and while addresses his own people say, "death to the Jews". What a peice of human feces he was. A good terriorist is a dead one.

Then how can you support that?

Oh really, well that maybe true, but why do so many people want to come here for a better life? No other country in the world can claim that. And I too have lived in other countries around this world, and this is the best place to be bare none.

I'm not defending Arafat but despite all the rhetoric you hear he did take a crack at peace. In any case, I don't understand why Arafat gets all blamed for the failure of peace. There were two parties there and no one wanted to compromise.

Nice, they feel the same about Americans. As the president has said "bring them on."

I'm not entirely sure if the original intent of the prize covered environmentalists but I don't see why it shouldn't. Gore won it along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for peace between mankind and the planet/environment.

*let's keep this civil. no need for namecalling or hyperbole. There's plenty of that on TV.
How could any "republican" vote for gore, the guy is a kook.

Most democrats aren't that stupid either. Go ahead Gore, run for President, hurt your own party with such a dumb move. I'm all for it.

Well, I would agree with you. But why get a peace prize now, if it wasn't the intent of the prize? That's like an Kevin Garnett winning the NFL MVP. Sure he plays great for the NBA, but the NFL MVP is supposed to be given to an NFL player.

I personally can't stand the guy, but I do respect his work in regards to the environment, regardless of how self serving it is.
