Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

President Obama + 2009 Nobel Peace Prize = Joke!

President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.

The reaction around the world is mixed. From everything I've read, most people are confused (unless of course you're a Democrat or liberal). Consider this: Obama was in office just two months when nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize were closed. TWO MONTHS. What in God's name has the President accomplished in those first two months that would make him any more qualified for the prize

Consider these past recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize going back to 1962:

JOHN HUME and DAVID TRIMBLE for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland.

JIMMY CARTER JR., former President of the United States of America,
for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development

YASSER ARAFAT, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the PLO, President of the Palestinian National Authority, SHIMON PERES, Foreign Minister of Israel, YITZHAK RABIN, Prime Minister of Israel. for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East.
NELSON MANDELA, Leader of the ANC.
MIKHAIL SERGEYEVICH GORBACHEV, President of the USSR, helped to bring the Cold War to an end.

THE 14TH DALAI LAMA (TENZIN GYATSO), Religious and political leader of the Tibetan people.

ELIE WIESEL, Chairman of 'The President's Commission on the Holocaust'. Author, humanitarian.

LECH WALESA, Poland. Founder of Solidarity, campaigner for human rights.

MOTHER TERESA, India, Leader of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity.

MOHAMED ANWAR AL-SADAT, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt and MENACHEM BEGIN, Prime Minister of Israel. for jointly negotiating peace between Egypt and Israel.

HENRY A. KISSINGER, Secretary of State, State Department, Washington.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., leader of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, campaigner for civil rights.

LINUS CARL PAULING, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA. Campaigner especially for an end to nuclear weapons tests.

President Obama is on THIS list? Best thing he could do is respectively turn down the award and say, though he's promoting world peace, he hasn't done anything yet.
