**WARNING** This blog post WILL contain a rant about Barack Obama and professors at my school. If this bothers you, go read something else, because I don't really care.
So, a couple of things have really irked me today. And by irked I mean they might have made me say the F-word a few times. It's just been one of those weeks.
Firstly, I have been dealing with a really annoying situation involving a lot of money at school. I have made EVERY attempt to deal with it both professionally and responsibly, while maintaining a polite air.
Unfortunately, the very same teachers that PREACH constant professionalism to me are apparently UNWILLING to extend me the same courtesies. In my attempts to rectify this situation, the 3 different professors have DELIBERATELY and PURPOSEFULLY ignored my emails, phone calls and messages, AND attempts at a face to face meeting.
How in the world can a group of PROFESSIONAL ADULTS handle a situation so POORLY. It's ridiculous and disgraceful, and honestly, I have lost all of my respect for all of them. I received a response email to one I sent Monday afternoon REQUESTING IMMEDIATE ACTION because I am leaving campus for 2 months for a clinical rotation. It was sent at 1:30pm, which sent me into a tizzy trying to get BACK to campus and deal with what I had to before 5pm. It's pissed me off and those teachers are pretty much dead to me. Thanks a lot for all your help and quick feedback! NOT!!! BITCHES.
Anywhoo, moving on... I'm sure you've all heard that President Obama has ridiculously been named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for......oh right, NOTHING.
I am completely ashamed that he would accept an award that is so OBVIOUSLY UNDESERVED and ridiculous. The committee chose him for this award Feb. 1, 2009, which was 11 FREAKING DAYS after he took office on Jan. 20, 2009. What could this moron have done in 11 days to deserve one of the (previously) most prestigious awards in the world. ABSO-FRICKING-LUTELY NOTHING.
(Obviously I am very heated up about this, so I apologize.)
Summing up my opinion nicely is FoxNews:
And Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican Party, said Obama won the prize because of his "star power," rather than meaningful accomplishments. "The real question Americans are asking is, What has President Obama actually accomplished?" Steele said in a statement. Steele, who took over the reins of the GOP earlier this year, said he thought it was "unfortunate that the president's 'star power' has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights." He said he doesn't think Obama will be "receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action."
In his 1895 will, Alfred Nobel stipulated that the peace prize should go "to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations and the abolition or reduction of standing armies and the formation and spreading of peace congresses."
And if you think that Barack Obama (America's biggest mistake) is the person to fit that bill, then you are FULL OF SHIT.
