Is it really going to be this simple to figure out? About all that's left to make it any more obvious that we're being taken for a nasty ride is for the guys on the UN Security Council to put on those funny flat topped hats and grow toothbrush mustaches. Maybe the guys on the Nobel Committee could speak with thick Germanic accents and award the Peace Prize to closet Marxists.
The world is rapidly turning into one of those little cartoon books about the end of the world that some fundamentalist churches hand out to frighten people into being baptized. The overblown dialogue, the improbable situations, the harshly lined faces of "evil" world leaders being blindly worshipped as superheroes by the ignorant masses; the two dimensional villains lurking in the background.
And that's just the nightly newscasts.
"In a related story, Super Obama today dispatched Air Force One to fly over Jerusalem and Tehran to take pictures for the cover of his new book, "Doing it to the Jews One More Time".
Come on, people! The Nobel Peace Prize? This has got to be the first time the Nobel's been awarded for "Participation". It took almost a whole decade before people like Watson, Crick and Wilkins were recognized for their transformative work on DNA. And Rosalind Franklin was left out entirely, though she deserved as much recognition as the rest of the team. Why? Because they took so long that she died of cancer 4 years earlier and you can't get one after your dead.
Mahatma Ghandi never got a Nobel Peace Prize. He got passed over 4 times and was assassinated before they could give him one. Jonas Salk never won a Nobel. Ronald Reagan was the architect of the end of the Cold War, the removal of the Berlin Wall, the destruction of thousands of nuclear missiles and the collapse of the Soviet Union and freeing of its vassal states. He certainly never got a Nobel!
But two weeks after taking office as President of the United States, Barak Hussein Obama is nominated for the Nobel. And today, they announced that he won it. The canned speeches have been pouring out all day as though they were spontaneous shouts of worldwide jubilation and not carefully choreographed elements of the propaganda campaign they really are.
They drive up to this little grocery store up north of Malvern and go in. They handed the bogus $25 bill to the clerk with the two teeth and asked for change.
He said, "Sure, mister," and handed the Aggie two 4's and a 17.
I think the Marxist strategists have overplayed their hand this time. I think they expected Obama to have passed health care and gun control and ended all war by this time and figured the Nobel would be a nice icing on the cake - like in movies like "Dave" and "The American President" where presidents just wave their magical policy wands and solve all the worlds problems.
Missing the timing like they have, is a huge mistake. The folks who planned this colossal screwup managed to make the Nobel Peace Prize look like some bizarre international version of a second grade play about preventing tooth decay. Obama is the one dressed up as the big toothbrush.
I've been worried that we were on the edge of the Apocolypse, but we may be getting some breathing room here. Surely people can't be so easily lead by simple-minded propoganda as this. Surely they see how artificial and false all of this is. Surely, we won't be manipulated so easily.
