    Re: Is the nobel peace prize a joke?

    All Nobel prizes are presumptuously manipulative. Its a biased ideological politicalized group (retired members of Norwegian parliament) trying to dictate cultural behavior world wide. In fact the Norwegian Nobel Committee maintains an proportional political party representation as a rule. So in fact the Nobel peace prize is a single country acting as a judge on all world affairs. Which I find a bit arrogant.

    That being said though the Nobel peace prize is a complete failure since two world wars were fought after the foundation was setup. Then there was the cold war. ETC....

    You keep proving the point people have made. Can you name 10 other Nobel Peace Prize winners off the top of your head without looking it up? I'll be dollars to dirt that you can't. Tell me how the voting process changed in ANY discernible way in 2008? Better yet, can you tell us what changed between the person who received it in 2008 and 2007? Were new people brought in to vote?

    Yasser Arafat, Barack Obama, Al Gore. I mean come on. Of course it is a joke. But any time a bunch of liberals get together and give other liberals prizes for being liberals, it's a joke. And it doesn't just have to be the peace prize. Krugman won a Nobel Prize for economics, and he has to be the worst economist in existence.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    ...he says without a clue. What on earth would compel you to say such a ridiculous thing?

    I'd bet you a crisp new hundred dollar bill you don't even know what Krugman worked on to get his Nobel Prize.

    What point am I proving, Hat?

    Wasn't it foreign trade?

    Krugman's problem is that he is a slave to tired economic formulas that have very little to do with reality.

And, sure, maybe Yassar Arafat wasn't a great choice, either (don't harp on me about Arafat; I don't know much about Palestine/Israel).

    But looking through all the winners since 1901, I can't help overlook a few miscalculations and see the bigger picture. The Nobel prize is a pretty good thing, I'd say.

    I'm expecting some pretty bitter comments regarding this issue...
    Overall, I might have to agree with you, but certainly not lately.

    To OP, NO!!!!

    Conservative's will agree and just say something along the lines of liberal bias. Just look up and notice the trends guys/gals...
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).
