I'm sorry, I thought this was the organized gang blog from On Faith.

My bad...

I got tired of looking at the College Diploma's hanging on the office walls from the educated.

I framed unit and training patches and placed them on the wall.

You'd be surprized at the effect it had.

Left them there for a few months,to shut them up... then got rid of all of them with the exception of unit patch.

Humans can not predict the future. It's amazing to me how many people waste time on such speculation.

Does he deserve it? I don't know; who among us is qualified to decide what we deserve? "Judge not, that you not be judged." I'm very pleased with the change in our nation's foreign policy since he took office, and apparently so are the people who award the Nobel Peace Prize.

Some deserve awards although I can't think of any. However, I can think of plenty that deserve jail for what they've done to the American people, the United States and the rest of the world.

Would this question be asked if Obama looked like previous Presidents?

a politician getting an award is like getting a holiday card where someone donates money to a charity, in their name of course, not yours...

More often than not leaders accept awards on behalf of their organizations and employees. That recognition is invaluable.

Do Awards Help Leaders? Maybe input and feedback is needed more than awards. But then again, the awards might just be that!

How about "It depends on the leaders"? Most corporate leaders are generously recognized with obscenely high salaries for their work and giving them awards overlooks that they aren't the ones doing the heavy lifting. In government and the non-profit sector, where leaders aren't so well remunerated, giving them public recognition often does accelerate their work.
