Putin Peace Prize


Apart from tranqing tigers, riding horses and sharks, scuba diving, hunting, playing concert piano and flying jets, Vladimir Putin also has his own religious cult and is hailed as an emissary from God.


According to Vladislav Surkov, the Kremlin's first deputy chief of staff, Putin "is a person sent to Russia by fate and by the Lord at a difficult time for Russia... preordained by fate to serve our peoples."


No wonder then that China has nominated the Russian leader for the coveted Confucius Peace Prize. That's not all, in July, a Berlin nonprofit announced plans to give the outdoors loving Russian Prime Minister the sought after Quadriga Award for being a "role model for enlightenment, dedication and the public good." The Award was later withdrawn, prompting Russian President Dimitry Medvedev to blast the Germans for "cowardice and inconsistency." 

American President Barak Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Make of that what you will.

What in the heck is our world coming to? I never knew that Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, my question is for what?

Have a good week in spite of it all LSP! I'll keep my nose to the grindstone and one day maybe I'll be able to make a wee bit of difference in a world that makes no sense anymore to some of us.

I'll try to Darlin.

The Nobel Peace Prize was curious -- I don't get it at all, but perhaps I'm missing something?

God bless.

Putin Peace Prize

The Psychic Pastor(™) has a decidedly national Episcopal Church typhonicism but it is a great angle for a book!

Psychic Pastor? Like it...

I'm crafting a literary legal disclaimer with a currente calamo:

The Psychic Pastor(™)is not based on any Texan/Brit living or dead, including any 2nd Amendment loving, pistol plinking priest, who also rides horses, but covets motorcycles, and eats doves.

I think I should be in the clear
