It did become meaningless. Now we have a chance to make it matter again.

The Great Triggering has begun!!!

Mark your calendars, folks! A new Age is upon us. All year references henceforth will be referenced to the "GT", as in 'BT' (Before Triggering) and 'AT' (After Triggering).

Awesomeness!

ETA...all you Wikipedia editors, get your fingers warmed up! It's spelled "T.H.E. (space) G.R.E.A.T. (space) T.R.I.G.G.E.R.I.N.G"

LOL!

By all accounts he's not in the running this year. The Nobel Prize Committee accepts nominations between September and February. Apparently Trump did get nominated this year, but it turns out it was a fake nomination.

But you are right. There probably will be a Great Triggering when October comes and Trump is not announced as the Nobel Peace Prize recipient.

Oh dear, ATS counting their chickens before they've hatched... It's a kind of shell game, let's revisit this issue in 2023.

If he actually wins it......imagine the reactions.....just like the election reactions, and because of that I want him to win it.

The reactions will be oh so worth it.

Good point.

Obama?

I thought the inconvenient truth about the Nobel Peace Prize being forever sullied was when it was awarded to the narrator of a documentary chock full of bad science that if its edicts were followed would make living conditions harsher for all people worldwide regardless of their position on the economic scale...conditions that make war, famine, crime and just plain old strife inevitable...in other words the antithesis of peace.

Obama ruined it? Who knew?

Look you don't like everything that the US has it's hands in, that's fine. Go checkout any disaster in the world and see who responded first and with most resources. Have an issue with the US, go look at pretty much every piece of tech you own and ask yourself what it would look like without the US being involved. All you and a lot of other people do is complain about how the US is everywhere, doing everything, but what I don't see is those people going through all their stuff and get rid of everything that was made possible because of the US.

My point is before you start to complain about the US, go look at everything the US has given you because of the culture that we foster here, or carry on and only look at the bad stuff. Just remember though without the US think about how bad those little issues that the world has would be?


Lol hmmmm well my phone was made in Korea, my computer was made in Japan, the majority of things I own were.made in China or india. Where does the us come into this?

Oh right you guys just killed net neutrality in your country. You just made website owners responsible for content hosted on their website. Currently the USA is not leading the world in scientific research, technological advancement or industry. Just what am I suppose to be thankful to the USA for? That oil from my country is sent across the border only to turn around, cross back and I have to pay an extra dollar more for 'imported gas' despite all said gas being produced and refined in my country because 'free trade'. That American companies are trying to force a pipeline through my province so they can profit while my home is polluted and destroyed? That you put tariffs on our lumber while forcing your NAFTA bull# on us? That I have to pay more for electricity because we ship 'excess' power across the border?

Seriously # you and # your country.



It all makes sense now. You are one of those morons from BC. Lower Mainland I would guess.

Most useless people in the country behind Quebecers. You don't like the pipeline but I guarantee you've done nothing to eliminate oil products from your life. Get rid of your phone, car, computer, don't eat anything that has to be shipped by plane/train or boat.

Everybody needs to ignore this far left extremist. Seriously these types are the same as America's far left idiots that think the world can run on rainbows and lollipops.


Hmmm....actually we should stop shipping oil down to america. If we didn't do this we wouldn't need an American pipelline. I love all the assumptions made in your post. Im not against oil. Im against a pipeline no one needs or wants. There's more oil in Canada then America why the # do we need to import it? It's some bull#. That # is going literally past my home and will go to the ocean I fish from, swim in and live nearby. Would you be stoked.if some foreign company was going to do this to your home?

It's not that I hate oil....I do kind of hate being charged $1.60/L of gas when oil is 60¢ a barrel. The only reason this is happening is because of this pipeline.

Why when I live next to a province that produces enough oil for the entire country am I paying to ship said oil from Alberta to America then paying for a pipeline to ship it through British Columbia to the ocean l? How does not wanting such an idiotic thing make me an extreme leftist? Why should I want my country's oil exports to be the same as it's imports? When those imports are the exact same product we exported?

Im not an extremist Lefty at all. I just don't like having to buy the resources of my own country back from America...it's not beneficial to Canada.
We don't make money off this. We don't benefit from this. American companies do. But I guess cause im not pro American business making money off of my country I must be a Lefty extremist?

Glad you know me so well

Well, there's that too.

Yeah, the Nobel "Peace" prize is pretty much just a hollow trophy anymore. It's all about politics, and nothing about 'peace'.

Too bad, it casts shade on the whole Nobel Prize process, frankly, and that's wrong.

As happy as I am about this happening, I still believe he should turn it down. Obama being given the award for nothing completely kills its legitimacy altogether.

Obama ruined it.... what possibly bad reason can anybody come up with as to why he would deserve one? I'll be dead honest here, I dont believe anybody in politics deserves a gosh darn Nobel Peace Prize and I sure as heck dont think somebody deserves it just because their skin color happens to be different than the last crappy President. I'm still unsure as to why Trumps getting nominated so soon... But if he keeps doing what hes doing I'll stay on board. Have a good day friend

Boy, wouldn't that be a class move!!!

He'd freaking walk on water if he did that, and say turned it down in favor of someone who truly espouses nothing but true peace (i.e. NOT a politician).

Candidly, a sitting president or other senior political figure should never be eligible for a Nobel Peace Prize. It's a complete dichotomy when you think about it. No country is completely peaceful, and leaders of countries have to do some pretty unsavory things, hence none of them are truly eligible.

What did Obama do to justify a Nobel peace prize?


Married a chic that so arrogant she thinks shes the first lady forever.



No joke.


She's vile. Obama and that manly looking thing have done nothing but disrespect the code of office ever since they left. Disgusting things.

If you re--read your post, it sure sounds like you live in a screwed up place with some awful leadership. You should move to the USA where we don't have issues like that. Or, you could stay where you are, and bitch.

I don’t know. If you consider the whole thing started because a French newspaper confused Alfred for his brother Ludvig (who had died) in their obituary by stating that the Merchant of Death had died; puts the whole thing in perspective.

It is after all just one man’s inspiration to not look like a total chump for forever changing conventional warfare by inventing smokeless gunpowder, cordite, dynamite and other explosive ordnance. Family still kept the huge fortune his inventions gained though.

I still think that the prize was diminished greatly in its meaning the day they gave it to Obama for essentially nothing.

Anyway - more winning...........
