Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Observations on Recent Events

I spent most of today trying to catch up on what has been happening in the news since Election Day.  I haven’t watched the news because I have been vacationing and I had custody of my daughter for most of the last week.  Below is my synopsis of some recent events:

  • Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana for recreational use –  I support this and on the surface this is good news.  There is bad news and I will explain that later.
  • Petraeusgate – Former CIA Director David Petraeus resigned following a much-publicized sex scandal.  My campaign could use publicity like that.  I am not below admitting that I can use the sex.
  • Israel vs. Hamas and the Palestinians – I have received heat for what I am about to say in the past, but it bears repeating.  The United States should not get involved in the conflict until the Canadian dilemma is settled.  Canadian spies like William Shatner, Celine Dion, and Justin Bieber infiltrating and sabotaging the Great American Entertainment Industry must be deported and American entertainment must be restored to its greatness.
  • Hostess Closing Down – This is bad news on many levels.  I blame the marketing team for the folding of the company.  While it is easy to blame the management for being overpaid or the unions for wanting too much, I blame the marketing team for undervaluing their products.  I would have sold Twinkees at 40% higher than the suggested retail price.  They were at least that much better than Little Debbie’s.  Legalizing marijuana just isn’t the same withoout munching on Twinkees or Ho-Ho’s.

Tonight is my last night in Virginia Beach.  I head to my parents’ home in Washington, DC tomorrow for Thanksgiving week and head home Friday afternoon.

No Time for Politics

I would like to thank President Obama and Mitt Romney for taking the high road and taking the politics out of the tragedy in Aurora today.   I have also cancelled political events for today.  (Though I would have canceled them anyway, as it had rained pretty heavily here all day.)

I will resume my campaign activities tomorrow with an appearance at ArtsWalk in Port Jervis, NY.  In addition to campaigning, I will be trying to unload some stick-figure drawings I made during a meeting a couple weeks ago.   I will also bring Patricia’s coloring book now that she has learned to stay within the lines when coloring.  She really enjoyed the “Family Guy” coloring book I bought her.  Her colorings of Brian looks more like Brian than the Brian on TV.

May God comfort the family and friends of those affected by the shootings in Aurora.

Deciphering The Election Results

There are two races that have yet to be called that will tell my chances of winning as a write-in candidate in 2012.  One race is the Colorado Governor race.  It’s not so much who will win (Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper will be the next governor) as it will be if the Republican Party will be on one of the top two lines on ballots in 2012.  Former Congressman Tom Tancredo ran as a American Constitution candidate.  He shared conservative votes with Republican candidate Dan Maes, who finished a distant third.

The Colorado Senate race is still too close to call.  The Republican Ken Buck needs to win since the Republican in the governor’e race finished a distant third.  He is currently a couple thousand voted behind Democratic Senator Michael Bennet.

The race I am really keeping an eye on is Alaska.  The good news is that “write-ins” have a lead.  The presumption is that those write-ins are for Lisa Murkowski.  But since Alaska has yet to release the names of the write-in notes, it is conceivable that Alaskans wrote my name in.  They tend to do things differently up there.

NBC news is reporting that 85% of tea party candidates won their elections.  I will try to attend tea parties, but I was met with indifference with the tea party my daughter had the last time she came to visit.  I was not able to convince her stuffed bear or her dolls to vote for me.  While Patrica is enthusiastically supportive of my campaign, she will only be 9 years old in 2012.

The Republicans will control the House and the Democrats will control the Senate.  This bodes well for independents like myself.  There will be two more years of gridlock as well as six more weeks of winter.  Independents will be the key to getting the country back in the right direction.  While independents are a plurality of voters, they are most likely to cross party lines and vote for someone who is not an independent.  If independents don’t stick to their base and vote for fellow independents, gridlock can last a lot longer (or worse, we could have Republicans or Democrats running the country.)

The best news is that now that Election Day is over, there won’t be political ads for a couple months.  Sit back and enjoy.

The Tweeting Project

If you have a Twitter account like I do, you like to write small notes and read notes of others. I like to log on twice a day:  First thing in the morning and just before or after dinner.  Sometimes I’ll log on and tweet just to let people know I am still alive.

Below is a post I tweeted around 8PM Mountain Time last night:

Ground Zero mosque critics don’t understand what it means to be American: http://tinyurl.com/29cwpe8

The Tweeting Project is simple.  All you have to do is copy what I am posting below and tweet it on your account.

#AhmnodtHeare for America.  Ahmnodt Heare for You.  Ahmnodt Heare for President. http://tinyurl.com/ahmnodt

If you feel like tweeting about the campaign or about me, Just replace “Ahmnodt Heare” with “#AhmnodtHeare” in your tweet.  The “#AhmnodtHeare” allows those who are looking for more information about me to have all the information on one page.  I will dedicate a blog entry to the best #AhmnodtHeare tweets when I get back from vacation next weekend.

I am getting ready for the big hike today in the San Luis mountain range in Colorado followed by an afternoon of Bluegrass music.  It is nice to be able to hike without broken bones this year.

Vacation Ends Today

I head home today after a week of must needed time away from the job and my campaign.  I will leave here at 7:30 for a ride to Colorado Springs.  At 11:00, I will be taking a bus to Denver.  The plane leaves at 2:00PM and I shoujld be back at my home by 8PM.

I spent most of yesterday alone relaxing.  I did watch some of the Rockies game against the New York Mets at a bar.  I came back to the bar in time to watch “Wheel of Fortune.”  It was then that I found out why my campaign was so popular here.  Saguache is a hotbed for Vanna White supremacists.   There was an altercation as a few people came in wanting to watch the Denver Broncos’ game against the Arizona Cardinals.  But the Broncos fans were outnumbered by the Vanna White supremacists.

We were about to watch the Broncos game after “Wheel of Fortune” when there was a sudden showering of boos.  I saw the television and it was Wiliam Shatner doing a Priceline commercial.  An elderly woman shouted, “Way to ruin our entertainment, you Canuck spy!”

The irony is although I am heading home today, I will never feel as home as I have this past week.

Busy Busy Busy

It’s odd that I would find myself busier during vacation than I am usually during the year.  It started early yesterday morning when I went to a local doctor to get a walking boot for the cast on my ankle.  I no longer have to use crutches, but I am still getting around slower than I would like.  I am currently looking for an inline skate I can use on the boot.

I went to the local restaurant for breakfast.  Word got around town that I am here for vacation.  In most parts of the country, I could get around relatively anonyomusly.  In Saguache County, I am as popular as rock star Ajay Bhatt.  The owner of the restaurant showed me the new lunch and dinner menus they have been using the last week.  On the lower left hand corner of the menu is Grandma Oudda’s recipes.

After breakfast, a couple of locals took me on a tour of Saguache County.  The first stop was the town of Center.  The middle of town was a movie theather that closed last year when the citizens of Center decided to fight the Cinemafia by boycotting the theater.  The touching moment came when I found out that people were in the process of buying the theather and making it into the Ahmnodt Heare Community Center.

We were soon off to Crestone.  One of the things you notice immediately about Crestone is that many religions have house of worship here.  There are almost as many religions here as residents of Crestone.  We made a quick stop to Moffat.  there isn’t much to Moffat now, but the town almost became the state capital of Colorado.  (It lost a close election to Denver.)

The final stop was a small ghost-town like village of Bonanza.  Fourteen people live here, but I didn’t get to meet any of them.  The people I was with told me I was probably better off not meeting them because most of them voted for McCain.  I told them that that didn’t matter to me and that I forgive them for their error in judgement.

We headed back to Saguache.  I was having a hard time breathing.  I don’t know if it was because of the elevation (most of the county is over 14,000 feet above sea level) or if it was from the smoke in the air.  I understand that the smoke came from the Los Angeles area, but not because Manny Ramirez is hot.

The day ended with dinner at the restaurant.  I got to try their Strawberry Stroganoff.  It was very good.  It was the first time I had Strawberry Stroganoff  that wasn’t made by a member of my family.

A Minor Problem

I am currently in Fort Garland, Colorado.  I have no place to stay tonight.  The hotels here are booked and Saguache is 78 miles away.  Renting a car is not in my budget, but I might rent one just so I have a place to sleep tonight.

UPDATE:  I couldn’t find a place to sleep, so I tried to find a place in the woods to set up a tent.  I didn’t have a tent, but if there was an area, it would have been a good spot to lay down my stuff.  I found an area, but slipped down a hill and hurt my ankle.

I limped back into town looking for a hospital.  The limp was more noticable as I wascarrying my stuff through Fort Garland.  I was given a ride to the hospital.  I spent the night in the hospital as it was discovered I had a fractured ankle and a concussion.  I won’t be able to go on the hike, but I am hoping to be released in time for the Chuck Wagon Dinner.
