What Are They Smoking In Oslo?
The Wall Street Journal ^ | 10-09-09 | JOHN FUND

Posted on 10/09/2009 8:46:05 PM PDT by GOP_Lady

A prize for not being George W. Bush.

This year's awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama can only hasten the decline in prestige of an award that has already gone to people like Yasser Arafat, UN General Secretary Kofi Annan (who presided over the Iraqi oil-for-food scam) and the fabulist Guatemalan activist Rigoberta Menchu. For this year's Nobel, the deadline was February 1, barely ten days after Mr. Obama had assumed the presidency. Though the Nobel committee of five Norwegian politicians presumably considered the evidence over the summer, it's fair to say their award represents little more than wishful thinking that Mr. Obama's diplomatic efforts will ultimately bear fruit.

Something more fun than these Camel lights, that’s for sure.

I believe the technical term is “good s**t”.

. . .

. . . . . . smoking?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . why . . . .

OThuga slug poo . . . of course . . . and commenting on the . . . aroma . . .

essence of evil
essence of destruction
essence of arrogance
essence of death
essence of bloody hands.

Those globalists love that stuff.

Just another sharp stick in the eye of God-fearing, freedom-loving Americans. That’s all this is. This is how the commies get their thrills. Like the Bozos of Oslo, Obama hates this country so that provides them all with twice the tingle.

Obama is an instant immunity against being called a racist for the next 20 years, or so many of his followers believe. Show overt support for Obama, either by putting a bumper sticker on your car, a sign on your lawn, or by giving him a Nobel prize, and you can't be accused of racism. It's a deal that's just too good to pass up. The "legitimate" Nobel prizes for chemistry, medicine, physics, whatever, are almost exclusively awarded to caucasians and light-skinned asians. This puts the Nobel organization in jeopardy, long-term. They give Obama a throwaway BS peace prize, also awarded to mass-murderer and mass-destroyer Yasir Arafat, and they are off the hook for a long, long time.

Or so they think.

When Obama hits the fan, his support will vanish in a flash. He'll no longer be black. He'll be half-black, at best. He'll probably "become white" as far as the media's concerned. All these gestures will go up in smoke with him.

Imagine a dozen academic elites...who rarely travel outside of Norway except to frequent with elite circles in other upscale countries...and they sit there over the entire summer discussing how the President should win but there’s no foundation for accomplishment. Day after day...you debate against your associate...describing how you admire the President in what he says, but you can’t lay out accomplishments?

At some point, you meet and all vote. You toss out the guys who have spent decades working for peace, or putting their lives at risk for peace, or actually accomplishing factual things. This is the best you can do. So you vote and go home...smiling.

These guys are losers....pure and simple.

What are they smoking in Oslo? Obviously, crack. Or The Chosen One’s pole. Or both.

I can't believe that they didn't consider that giving him this award would make him a laughing stock.

He is truly a joke(r).

Five (5), actually. Politicians for the most part, of the liberal Norsk persuasion.

1 guy (the Chair), 4 chicks.

The Green Car of the Year is far more prestigious than the Nobel Peace Prize.

I’m pretty sure that bringing together of dark and light with a yellow beer was the deciding factor in voting.

“What Are They Smoking In Olso?”

Some really good strain of plant-like substance, that, when dried thoroughly, and lit, turns into floating clouds of psychological well-being.

IMHO

I think the Committee and whole organization has been a globalist cabal from the beginning. It’s all been to further globalist goals from Nobel’s days.

It appears to be correct . . . if anyone becomes much of a success at anything . . . he’s either co-opted into the elites with total submission and accoutraments there-to.

Or, he’s bought out.

There are no other options.

I would like to think that some of God’s business people stand up to them here and there. I can’t, however, point to any, for certain.

What "decline"? It's hit bottom, with nary so much as a dead-cat bounce. It's a joke, nothing more. A sick one, at that.

Dis Yust in from: FROM THE NORVEGIAN NEWS SERVICE:

The Norvegian Royal Family and the Nobel Prize Committee have been diagnosed with

Severe Cerebral Lutefiskitis Poisoning

Usuvally duh lutefisk poison strikes Norvay and Minniesoda around St. Olaf's Day, but the if duh dainty dish ain't prepared yust right, it can make vone mighty sick fershoor. Usually this is confined to severe gastric distress rekviring many outhouse visits, but if deese bacteria develop yust right, it can make vone also real crazy in the head. The disease, known as

"Cerebral Lutefiskitis"

strikes Fjordland every once and a while in the Fall and is characterized by bizarre, inexplicable, and truly nutty behavior.

Like taking the Bergen trolley ven you live in Oslo, or giving duh Nobel money to randomly selected guys like Al Gore or Chicago street hustlers. But it could be worse. Dey could have given Obama the prize money for the Literature.
