(National Report) – President Barack Hussein Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize under false and misleading circumstances according to a growing petition urging the Norwegian prize committee to strip the US President of the 2009 prize award.
The petition initiated a few days ago, is listed with Roots Action dot org, an internet action web page where citizens of the world can have their voices heard, grievances aired, and sleep well knowing that others agree with them. They seem fairly legitimate and truly collect signatures.
If the Nobel Committee honors the request, it will mark the first time in earth’s 6,000 year history Norwegians did something not Norwegian. It would also be the first time anyone has been stripped of a Nobel world prize.
The reasons and considerations for stripping President Obama of the prize, along with signatures, are many. Everything from “I didn’t vote for him”, “my hate burns for him like the rays of a thousand suns”, “he looks like Satan on the History channel”, to more poignant reflections on the use of unmanned drones and his Kenyan citizenship.
The petition itself has the feel of an electronic democracy where each voice is heard and a pollster gets paid a penny every time someone shares their two cents. Pollsters are diabolical, bottom-feeding carneys that use emotionally controversial topics to drive more opinion and web-traffic income as a matter of course – Kind of like internet political-cultural satirists, only more oily and morally twisted.
The Nobel prize committee is a financially autonomous organization. They do not care for internet opinion. Other voices, even American voices, do not count. The Nobel organization is not crowd, country or taxpayer funded. The US democracy is more or less, taxpayer funded. Conservative or liberal, letting a congressional representative know your opinion does have an impact.
The petition seeks to gain 250,000 signatures, about the same number of provisional votes cast in Ohio during the November 6, 2012 election where President Obama was elected by the popular and Electoral College vote to a second term.
The irony of 250,000 signatures isn’t very funny and shouldn’t be. The only way the Nobel Prize committee will strip Obama of his 2009 peace prize is if a conservative is in the White House, and majority in the senate and house exists. Then We The People can vote within the republic to send unmanned drones straight up their Norwegian fjords to take away Obama’s Peace Prize.
Because that is how peace is done, with votes not empty emotional hissy fits disguised as petitions.
