ran 0.0 miles
Still sitting on the sideline with an injury. The timing of this really sucks as we are reaching the culminating point of these past four unfortunate years. I feel like running faster and further with only four weeks to go until the election but fate, human stupidity, or maybe both, have detoured the path I thought I was on. I accept the temporary defeat and hope to be back on the road by Monday.

In world news, the Nobel Peace Prize was recently awarded to...the European Union. You can't make this sort of stuff up. I wonder how they divvied up the million dollar award among this economically torn collective. The euro is in utter jeopardy, Greece has been rioting for over two years, Spain has recently been in the news for similar riots---I don't follow too much news about Europe because we have plenty to worry about here in America, but even I know the union is fraying at every border and the currency is melting in every pocket. 

This announcement from Oslo is possibly, it is very close, but possibly, as ridiculous as Barack Hussein Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Between the two of these recipients, one a single man and the other a conglomeration of nations on a continent, I think it is safe to say that the Nobel Peace Prize has officially lost every fiber of what it once represented.

Barack Obama is arguably the worst president in modern American history, maybe ever, and Europe is currently suffering the worst recession its had in eighty years. It's as though the judges of this award seek out failures and reward their good intentions. 

Here is a list of all the winners. As I scanned over it I immediately saw that Al Gore won it in 2007 and Jimmy Carter won it in 2002. A lot of questionable individuals and entities have claimed this prize, but the further you go back the more noble the Nobel Peace Prize winners are.

As an afterthought, these guys gave this thing to Obama just for his "Hope and Change" rhetoric. He had done nothing to deserve it. They rewarded his words and his intentions, not his actions. Four years later, he's strutting around spiking the Bin Laden football and he has the Middle East burning more American flags and effigies than the second Bush did.
