SomethingToDo: Hey guys, has anyone pointed out the irony of this statement yet?


It's only ironic if you are not standing in the Party Line.

Snowden will be Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Orly? And what is your cunning plan?

ZoeNekros: This whole idea the Obama should not have won the prize simply because he had just started his presidency is stupid. People do not win the Nobel Prize for presidenting. They get them for being vocal and influential voices for noble causes (often by just giving speeches or writing essays). He was that before he was elected. What he does as president is beside the point. You might think that since he's done things that should disqualify him from being awarded the prize, but nominations don't take future actions into account. If you think they should, take it up with the committee, and give them access to your time machine.


Ill bite, what did he do to deserve it

So words rather than deeds?


Words and/or deeds. Either is sufficient.

/and I'm only saying that deeds after the award are irrelevant

Indeed, but he's being punished for letting the American populace know about it. You can bet our enemies already knew they were being spied on.

Got elected, ending Republican control of the U.S. government. This might come as a surprise to you, but after 8 years of Bush most of the world easily considered that worth a Nobel.

Snowden, the Hero? I'd vote for him.
Obama? No, I don't feel he deserved getting one, and proved it (to me by being Bush). And Snowden solidified the feeling.

I'm pretty sure Snowden actually deserves it but since these are so political I don't imagine they'll let Snowden within a million feet of one

Just asking questions.

I've found Jaeger works quite well.

HA! That's a funny. The NSA already knows those thoughts. Their thought-stealin' machine collected 'em weeks ago. And the Thought Implantor has secretly put treasonous ideas in your head so when they need a token Terror Suspect® they can come by and pick up you. Threat Level: Double Fear Xenon Strobe!

If he'd come up with a Power Point presentation he would have been a shoe in for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Either that or killed some people with drone strikes.  The Norwegians seem to love people who do that.

Would dismantling the NSA... and the  CIA, FBI... military industrial all that...  Advance world peace?

Would weakening the USA advance world peace, or harm it?

They don't award it posthumously, and I'm not surprised a bunch of Europeans in the late 1940s weren't too keen on giving the award to someone who thought India shouldn't be involved in WWII, however good his reasons were.

I've alway been one that a government worker had got to face the music when they do these things. You took an oath.

Snowmden did contacting job falls under that.

That being said, these programs need to be looked at hard and long about abilities and accountability.

Eh.  Not many people know who gets the Peace Prize award.

Ghandi got the Ghandi award.  It is instantly recognizable, and allows you to cut to the front of the line at downtown clubs.

I really don't like the idea of the NSA being able to spy on whoever the fark they want to in this country.  As far as I'm concerned, Snowden is a farking hero, like many whistle blowers.

Yeah, but they were American Quakers.

There is this, however: "In 1948, following Gandhi's death, the Nobel Committee declined to award a prize on the ground that "there was no suitable living candidate" that year."
