President Obama Receives the Nobel Peace Prize

Posted by AB on December 10, 2009

Earlier today, in Oslo, Norway, President Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize.  Despite being the leader of a nation involved in two wars, he was awarded the honor less than a year into his presidency.  And to make things even more uncomfortable, the President recently ordered 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. 

It seemed to be an untenable position for a man to receive an award for peace while he, at the same time, commands a military at war on two fronts.  To be honest, I wasn’t sure that there was anything that could be said to reconcile that paradox, but it seems that he has pulled it off, brilliantly.  He spoke about the unfortunate reality that is the necessity of war.  He expressed that there are evils in this world, and that the purveyors of these evils cannot be persuaded without military intervention. 

Amazingly, the assessments of the speech–from the right and left–have been positive.  It is a rare occasion for President Obama to receive praise from the right side of the political spectrum, and recently from the left, but some are saying that this could have been his best speech ever.  I don’t know if I agree with that opinion, but today’s speech might have been the most real, honest and grown-up speech given by an American president in years.

And with that speech, along with other bits of evidence in his first year in office, I have come to realize what Barack Obama really is–a grown-up.  He is a father-figure in a land of juvenile delinquents, and it is comforting to me.  But then again, maybe I’m just a kid, searching for the good in this world.

Whew! No Brainwashing. We Dodged A Bullet!

Posted by AB on September 8, 2009

The President of the United States gave a speech to the nation’s school-children and, thankfully, he refrained from the planned brainwashing and socialist indoctrination to send a message of self-responsibilty, patriotism, and perseverance.  Whew, we dodged a bullet.  I was sure that he would open his speech with the recitation of the “Pledge to Obama.”  Then he would pull his pocket-watch from his coat, wave it front of all of the children until hypnotised, and force the youngsters to become his loyal civilian military force.  That’s right, the Obama Youth.

Wait a minute…I’m not Glenn Beck, or Michelle Malkin, or Sean Hannity, or Rush Limbaugh.  Hell, I don’t even work a Fox News.  So, with my sanity in tact, along with the ability to process information, I actually watched the speech.  I could have read a transcript of the speech last night.  But again, I have my sanity and the ability to process information.  Those who would try to scare you to death are counting upon people who cannot process information, or people who have actually lost their sanity.

Sorry to break it to you crazies, but the speech was excellent.  Maybe if Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, or Bill Clinton had given such an inspirational speech to my classroom, I might have done even better in school.  The speech contained nothing about politics, nothing about socialism, nothing about the economy, nothing about health care, and nothing about the joys of supporting terrorists.  I was inspired to be a better person, and I have been out of school for a while, now.  

For those who kept their children away from school out of fear of having their children come home brainwashed by the evil, black socialist, here is the speech.  You should watch it.  Maybe you will gain the confidence to think for yourself.
