I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it is because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it we are going back from whence we came. JFK September, 1962

How does what Obama accomplished in February warrant the award based on Alfred Nobel's own stipulation?
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."

He is not lowering the tax rate for middle class workers. He is expanding the welfare program to low income workers and non workers. He is increasing the tax rates on the top two tax brackets but is only promising to leave the middle class rate the same. Read his tax policies on his site. When he compares his tax rates to the 1990's he is comparing them to Clinton tax rates. His policies will not be lower than Bush.8 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago

Under the Bush tax cuts a single person making 36k receives $396 making 50k receives $819 on average. Obama plan would cut taxes for 95% of workers and their families with a tax cut of $500 for workers or $1,000 for working couples
Repealing a portion of the Bush tax cuts for families over $250,000 while continuing to leave their tax
rates at or below where they were in the 1990s:
Ordinary Income: The top two income tax brackets would return to their 1990’s levels of 36% and
39.6%. All other tax brackets WOULD REMAIN as they are today. Obama would also restore the 1990’s
levels for the personal exemption and itemized deduction phaseouts (known as PEP and Pease).
Obama would work with the Treasury Department to adjust the thresholds of these rates slightly to
ensure that no married couple making less than $250,000 (or single making less than $200,000) was
affected by these changes.
Capital Gains: Families with incomes below $250,000 will continue to pay the capital gains rates
THAT THEY PAY TODAY. For those in the top two income tax brackets – likewise adjusted to affect only
families over $250,000 – Obama will create a new top capital gains rate of 20 percent.
