OK, so I'm Canadian and don't know all that much about him, but even I was shocked to hear it. I realize this is slightly off topic but was just wondering what your thoughts are??

Free speech is what makes this country great. If they sound like a preschooler to you or not doesn't matter, it's the fact they can voice their opinion that counts. While I do not agree with what you say per-say I also realize an orgainic producer from California and a row crop farmer from the midwest aren't going to see eye to eye either.

This is for whoever

My beef with the subsidies isn't necessarily the subsidies themselves but the hypocrisy of those who get them. People cry about the new president turning our country communist, they beat their chest about feeding a hungry troubled world, how they are all about free markets and against handouts but when it comes down to it, they have their hand out just like anybody else. I'm not saying they don't work their asses off and I'm not saying they shouldn't make a living from doing something that is extremely valuable but we should not be dependent on handouts. The system is broke. Falling into an us and them game is a joke and isn't going to fix it.

Wishing for an Oswald or John Wilkes Booth?, that's just crazy talk. Whether people like it or not, this is what we get for the next three, at least. Some of the shit people end up posting sounds worse then a bunch of preschoolers. Most of the bailouts were already in the works during Bush and I'm not so sure the wars were better or worse with him at the helm, either.

It just gets lame people parroting the retards on tv.

this is for Adam Gaska. What is your fixation with government payments for these guys? It's not like they are sitting on their a$$es and doing nothing. They get these payments so that the American people have a cheap and ample suppy of food. Organics are great, but they can't feed the country at a reasonable price. Is there a data base with how much money you've made selling organic produce at the farmer's market that the USDA provided funding for or their grants for promotion of organics and farmer's markets? Whats the difference between a government check for low grain prices and helping make a market for organic produce? The biggest difference I see is that you are a price setter and grain farmers are price takers.

You call Iran and Venezuela our allies?....he has not shown any respect to our real allies yet....He has not prevented anything yet, he is delaying everything, even helping the troops...? You call that leadership? God help us!

I am an Obama supporter and I agree that he really didn't deserve the award. However we are on the brink of WW3 with the "Axis of Evil". So far he has prevented going to war with Iran and North Korea. I think we have to look on the bright side of things and if a war breaks out at least our president has mended relationships with our allies.

A lot of my family voted for him and they even thought it was rediculous. Since when have political promises been credited information.

In response to the original post, it was probably a little premature to give Obama the Nobel peace prize. If anything, he got it more for not being George Bush rather then for anything he's accomplished.

In response to Eric, it sounds a little hypocritical to criticize "everyone looking for an easy life paid for by the government", when you yourself have taken $80,436

The reason no one likes it on here is because we have work ethic. We wouldn't be doing what we are if we didn't. When someone like him blows sunshine up or A$$ like he has the american public to get where he is we don't believe him. But everyone looking for an easy life paid for by the government does believe him. He won because the working people are out numbered. Rome fell because the people learned to vote people in to the government to get an easier life and what did happen to Rome?

your kidding right....? You will have no country left if everyone had that sentiment of "waiting" until they've screwed up everything they can....you don't care?....that's obvious!
