Hmmmm...the nomination deadline for the Nobel Peace Prize was Feb 1st, ten days after BHO took office.

Interesting message being sent by the Nobel Peace Prize committee. Sounds more like an excercise in hopefulness than an award for real accomplishiment.

Iconic Hummer brand sold to Chinese manufacturer!
By TOM KRISHER, AP Auto Writer Tom Krisher, Ap Auto Writer 16 mins ago
DETROIT Hummer, the off-road vehicle that once epitomized America's love for hulking trucks, is now in the hands of a Chinese heavy equipment maker.
General Motors Co. and Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Corp. finally signed the much-anticipated deal to sell the brand on Friday.
Tengzhong will get an 80 percent stake in the company, while Hong Kong investor Suolang Duoji, who indirectly owns a big stake in Tengzhong through an investment company called Sichuan Huatong Investment Holding Co., will get 20 percent. The investors will also get Hummer's nationwide dealer network.
Financial terms were not disclosed, although a person briefed on the deal said the sale price was around $150 million. The person did not want to be identified because the terms were being kept private. GM's bankruptcy filing last summer said that the iconic brand with military roots could bring in $500 million or more.
Suolang Duoji also is the controlling shareholder and chairman of Lumena Resources Corp., a Hong Kong listed mining company.
GM and Tengzhong said in a statement that the transaction still must be approved by the U.S. and Chinese governments, although and Chinese regulators initially expressed reservations about Tengzhong's ability to run such an enterprise.
Hummer's current management team will stay with the new company, which will be headquartered either in Detroit or suburban Auburn Hills, Mich.
James Taylor, the GM executive who has run Hummer recently, will remain as its chief executive officer.
"We are fortunate to have a partner who understands and recognizes the importance of continuing investment in Hummer's heritage as a U.S.-based and branded company with a view toward capitalizing on global opportunities," Taylor said in a statement.
Hummer, whose smallest model gets 16 miles per gallon (14.7 liters per 100 kilometers) in combined city and highway driving, sold well until the middle part of this decade when fuel prices began to rise. Sales peaked at 71,524 in 2006.
But only 8,193 Hummers have been sold in the U.S. through the first nine months of the year. That's down 64 percent from a year earlier. And only 426 Hummers were sold nationwide last month, according to Autodata Corp.
GM, which spent 40 days in bankruptcy protection during the summer and has received about $50 billion in U.S. government aid, also plans to sell its Saab brand and scrap Pontiac and Saturn as it tries to streamline its operations.
The company wants to focus on four core brands: Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC.
With backing from a well-capitalized company, Hummer will now focus on improved efficiency and performance and include alternative fuels, more efficient gas engines, six-speed transmissions and diesel engines.
GM said its assembly plant at Shreveport, La. would continue to assemble the commercial Hummer H3 and H3T pickup trucks on a contract basis until June 2011, with a one-year option until June 2012. The military H2 version will continue to be assembled by AM General in Mishawaka, Ind. under the same terms.
South Bend, Ind.-based AM General retains ownership of the military versions of the vehicles, which have been used frequently in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Shreveport GM plant is currently slated to close by June 2012. For the time being, the plant also is assembling the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks.
The plant once employed about 3,000 workers, but layoff and buyouts have reduced that number to just over 700.

ALL I CAN SAY IS W.T.F.OVER!


It's bad enough I live in Communist Chicago AKA Land of Daley. Now the Nation is turning into the same place. Once this pompous *** was bought and paid for by the Daley machine it was all over. Trust me Chicago is running the White House right into the ground. Our city is done and they are taking what they do here to the National level. Oh, and the gangbangers fight all the time so lets build them a new school......... Wait they are still fighting and killing each other lets give them another 500k. Did anyone hear what legislation they want to pass because of this every day beating that was caught on tape that pretty much happens at any school dismissal in the heart of the city? They want criminal records and the information pertaining to students who are also victims to be accessible to teachers and principles. WHA WHA WHA WHAT! This coming from the city that ignores the Supreme Court and the Constitution regarding gun laws.

Nobel Prize. MAKES ME SICK!

BTW THANKS TO CHALKIE 2016

Here's the kicker: guess where the car is going to be made? not here in the USA it will be made in Norway.....what country decides the Nobel peace prize? Norway... who approved the money B.OB

You'll have to send Pelosi, Feinstein, Franken, Dodd, Barney (genus 'gobblenobbicus), Sharpton, Nagin, Baucus and several others up there before I would be satisfied. It would be a good start, though.

I used to be offended when people would compare Iraq and/or Afghanistan with Vietnam. Now when I see the nations top military leaders being forced to fight under severe restrictions from the politicians, my offense turns to disdain. We are doing it again!

While Hussain gets the peace prize, my brethren are dying because they cannot use close air support, they cannot engage in built up areas, and they don't have enough boys on the ground to do what must be done.

What's next, hippies in California spitting on soldiers?

If you have friends or relatives in the military right now, they need your prayers and in 2010 they need you to vote all of Hussain's enablers out of the government.

OK SINCE I SEE I AM AMONG FRIENDS HERE GOES THE NEWS:
The defense spending bill that was just signed today by BHO has some very "f"ed up issues:
1. there is a hate crime bill in it which means that "we" can be categorized as hate group for expressing our discontent because of his color even though we do give a shiznit about his color and more disgusted with his policies. It includes standardized penalties...i.e. life in prison etc.
2. the worse part of the defense bill: money is going to be paid to talibans who claim they want to stop fighting, to help them be socialized and re introduced into society... can you f'nin believe our tax dollars going to be paid to terrorists who claim they are tired of fighting.... I keep thinking this is a nightmare and i am going to wake up and it keeps getting worse. We all have to get all the incumbents out of office in 2010 spread the word who cares if Dem or Rep or independent just get the old guard out and get some new real people in there .
