I do believe I have been swarmed by a pack of rabid rightwingers.

Obama's Is Actually the Fourth Anti-Bush Nobel Peace Prize

The Nobel Peace Prize was a nice consolation for President Obama not getting the Olympics for his adopted hometown, but that doesn't explain the decision by the Norwegian inscrutables they apparently voted before the I.O.C. chose Rio over Chicago for the 2016 Olympic Games. One plausible motivation is that the Europeans really, really wanted to vote for Obama in the 2008 election, but, well, they can't vote in U.S. elections. But they could certainly vote against George W. Bush.

So the Nobel committee was telling us how they felt about our guy, as if we didn't know already. Or, perhaps it was a preemptive strike: If they give it to Obama, they don't have to give it to Bill Clinton, who has been openly coveting the peace prize for the better part of two decades.

The real reason, of course, was no mystery: European liberals just can't tell us enough times how dumb they think we were for sending Bush to the White House.(Twice!) Nor is this the first anti-Bush, anti-Republican Party Nobel. By my count, it's the fourth. The first was Jimmy Carter, who did not win, as he should have, for a lifetime of working for Habitat for Humanity or for spending his retirement traveling to the least desirable tourist destinations on the globe to monitor elections.

No, they gave it to Carter, by their own admission, because of his consistently churlish, partisan and un-presidential sniping at Bush over the looming U.S. invasion of Iraq: "It should be interpreted," a Norwegian functionary named Gunnar Berge said of Carter's prize, "as a kick in the leg." Bush's leg, that is.

Okay, but the Oslo orgy was just getting going. In 2007, Al Gore shared a peace prize for his work on global warming. That issue is hardly about the promotion of "fraternity between nations" or "the reduction of standing armies" (the stated Nobel criteria), but they couldn't resist: Here was yet another area in which the elites in the "world community" found Bush wanting. After all, wasn't Gore the guy Bush stole the election from?

A year later, Paul Krugman won a Nobel Prize in economics, supposedly for his work on showing that the tide of global trade really was lifting all boats, yachts and dugout canoes. But was there still a serious debate about that in 2008?(Oh, yes, but only in the Democratic Party, where Obama ran as a protectionist against free-traders like Hillary Clinton.) Ironic, but irrelevant,'cause Krugman's real claim to fame was the relentlessly anti-Bush invective he dispensed weekly during the Bush era in his New York Times column. Oslo loves that, by its own admission.

I watch nothing without adequate nudity any more, even sports. I have disciplined myself to ONLY watch nude women's beach volleyball in the Olympics. Who really cares about Taekwondo? Or anything Korean for that matter.

Only watched a few episodes myself. The reenactment of the Jews being conquered and taken to Babylon as slaves was good and how Daniel ended up being able to return them back to their homeland.

And I know Jesus is often depicted as Caucasian, blue-eyed, mild-mannered and a cool kind of guy.

But that bothers me, so I only saw a few clips of the New Testament part of the series.

It'd be like depicting MLK as Hispanic. There's no reason to do that. Same with not depicting Jesus as a Jew.

I said as I chose because I am an individual, meaning I do what I want regardless of the consequences. My parents were great parents, but a beating, grounding, or confiscating my toys couldn't make me do or not do anything. Infact often makes things worse. You all are confusing disappointment & respect with fear. All 3 have their own meanings & like I said,"there is no room for fear in a heart full of love!
Well that explains why you're a liberal who only cares about what you want.

Hope you didn't resort to calling your poor parents names when they tried to instill some common sense into your "it's all about me" mentality too.
