The Nobel "Peace" Prize Has Lost All Meaning
... which is why they should go ahead and give one to Trump -- if for no reason other than that his nuclear button is bigger than Kim Jong-Un's.

The "Peace" Prize is a huge farce, and anybody who accepts it should be at least a little bit embarrassed. All that's required is that your cronies and hangers-on put in a few glowing words for you.
Same goes with the Order of Canada. The recipients are politicians, journalists, writers, movie makers; quite a few of whom most Canadians can barely recall for all the lasting, beneficial effect they had on the life of the average Canadian. But at least it isn't handed out until after the recipient has actually accomplished something.
Take Obama, for instance -- the so-called man of peace who oversaw "at least seven" horrendously nasty assaults on countries not his own. And his way of reducing the number of American soldiers coming home in body bags was not to stop the assaults but:
Making death and destruction impersonal, and lucrative for the military/industrial complex that Eisenhower named and warned about. Was George Soros, "close friend" of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, instrumental in Obama's "Peace" Prize? Can you blame me for wondering?

Do you wonder who's behind the move to Nobel the Queen of England? Me too. She's the Queen, for pete's sake. What higher honour could be bestowed on her?
Okay, I've decided she deserves the Nobel because it's become just as redundant as the monarchy itself.
The medal for courage awarded to the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz - now that's appropriate, and deeply meaningful to all of us!
