College Football Playoff Act of 2009

capitolSaw this last night on the news, it was the opening story.

When did our priorities get so screwed up? Our soldiers are dieing in 2 wars, we are in an economic crisis like never before. Joblessness at at 30 year high, Dependency on fossil fuels. The REAL problems go on and on and on. And yet Congressional representatives from Utah and Texas (No surprises here) see fit to spend their time on College sports.

I am not saying there isn’t real issues in how the BCS runs their games. But I am saying they are GAMES. and we have serious problems that require the undivided attention of our leadership.

President Barack Obama, Nobel Peace Prize Winner


The Norwegian Nobel Committee

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2009

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.

Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.

For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama’s appeal that “Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.”
