Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Hang in There

If I learned one lesson this week thus far, is. “Don’t give up.”  Things might look bleak today, but the bleakness could be a setup for something good.  I learned other lessons, but had since forgotten what I learned.

For those who are my friend on Facebook, you have probably caught one of my many rants about how poorly I was doing in my NCAA Tournament Bracket.  My record following the first round was 23-9.  It’s not very good for a first round.  (My first round last year was 25-7 and 27-5 in 2010.  This was also the first time that one of the teams I picked to play in the Final Four lost in the first round.  (Damn you, Missouri!).  My second round was horrific as I had a worst-ever 6-10 record in the second round.  I also lost another Final Four pick as Florida State lost to Cincinnati.   I was in the 17th percentile in all of Yahoo.  Most of the people who were behind me were either people who entered but didn’t pick or people who went with totally random entries with a Harvard – Davidson championship game.

Things started turning around the following weekend.  Most of the teams that I had winning in the third round that were still around won.  I was 4-4 (Most of the 4 losses came from games played when I picked both teams who would be in that round wrong).  The best I could get for the Final Four was 2-2.  Two of the teams I picked correctly played each other and I picked the correct winner.  Another game involved a team that I predicted to lose in the fourth round and did.  The other two picks were Kansas and Kentucky.  I had moved up to the 43rd percentile.  Kentucky won their semifinal and Kansas won their semifinal.  I had correctly picked both of those (but against different opponents.)  I had predicted Kentucky would beat Kansas 78-73 (The score was only needed in tiebreaker situations and my tie was broken long before then).  Kentucky won 67-59.  I ended up in the 89th percentile.  Looking back at my bracket, I knew where I was going, but I didn’t know how to get there.  Past brackets were more like I had no idea where I was going but I knew how to get there.

Here is today’s life lesson:  Things might look bleak for you. “Bleak” is a relative term.  Chances are things are more bleak for the people around you.  If they’re better off today, it could be that they have maxed out while you can easily surpass them though you are far behind right now.

If this lesson does not apply to you, tough noogies!  This is the lesson I chose to have learned.  Chances are the lesson you need to learn is one of those I had learned only to later forget.  It couldn’t be that important a lesson so it isn’t that big of a problem.  Smile and move along.

What I Have Learned From Tim Tebow

Jets fans take heart. If you ignore the mechanics and look at the results, Tebow did lead a 1-4 team to the playoffs and did throw for 316 yards in a playoff game against a stingy defense.

Ahmnodt Heare for President

My father always says, “Whether you can or you can’t, you have to do it, so do it!”  the premise behind that thinking is that if you don’t dwell on thinking that something can’t be done, you will spend time thinking on how to get it done.  I see a lot of that in Tim Tebow.  He is hardly accurate throwing the ball and people question his ability to compete in the NFL.  He runs a lot for a quarterback, but he’s not very fast.  Despite these glaring shortcomings, he keeps winning.  But how?

I have been looking through Denver Broncos highlights and I watched the last couple games.  Here is what I have learned:

  • He doesn’t give up – He is a firm believer of “It’s not over until it’s over,”  “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” and countless other cliches that coaches tell their players.

What I Have Learned From Tim Tebow

My father always says, “Whether you can or you can’t, you have to do it, so do it!”  the premise behind that thinking is that if you don’t dwell on thinking that something can’t be done, you will spend time thinking on how to get it done.  I see a lot of that in Tim Tebow.  He is hardly accurate throwing the ball and people question his ability to compete in the NFL.  He runs a lot for a quarterback, but he’s not very fast.  Despite these glaring shortcomings, he keeps winning.  But how?

I have been looking through Denver Broncos highlights and I watched the last couple games.  Here is what I have learned:

  • He doesn’t give up – He is a firm believer of “It’s not over until it’s over,”  “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” and countless other cliches that coaches tell their players.
  • He has his team believing they can win (even with him at quarterback) and people tend to do more when they know their objective can be reached.
  • He stays out of trouble (on and off the field) – He doesn’t do drugs, drink, or hang out at the mall or the library.  On the field, he doesn’t fumble, throw the ball to the bad guys, or do stupid things that hurt the team.

This is what I have learned:

  • I gave up once, but I took back down and am preparing for the pitfalls I expect in the 2012 campaign.  I’m not going to win by doing things the traditional way.  This is why my campaign is unconventional – I am campaigning to my strengths.
  • While I am not sure how many people think I can win, I do know many Americans think I am a better candidate than either Obama or any of the Republican candidates.
  • I stay out of trouble (on and off the campaign trail) – I don’t take campaign money from big business (or from anybody else as is evident by the lack of a “PayPal” button on this website.)  And I only patronize legitimate nudie bars recognized by the law.

I wish Tim Tebow luck for the rest of this season as well as in his career.  I have already learned much from him and look forward to learning more.

How to One-Up Them

Most people hate talking about politics.  The few who like talking about politics are the people who like to rub your nose in it when they tell you they know a mayor or a councilperson.  Getting back at them is easy and it starts with these four words:

“I Know Ahmnodt Heare!”

Their jaws will drop when you say that with unabashed pride.  They may ask for some proof.  That’s OK.  Just point out one of the issues that I stand for.  Some of my ideals come from people like you.  The ideas that don’t come from you are inspired by you and people like you.  You are a major influence in a presidential candidate.  I think that trumps knowing a mayor.

Inspired By My Supporters

I have been a bit sluggish the last few weeks (more mentally than physically) due to dealing with stuff I shouldn’t have to deal with.  Yesterday was the last straw.  I am no longer putting up with stuff I shouldn’t.

I have set up some guidelines for myself because I want to be assertive when I have to be, but I don’t want to come off looking like a prick.  Here are the guidelines:

1)Know what can de done and what can’t:  I can’t prevent it from snowing, but I can pay somebody to clear my driveway and shovel out my car.  Sometimes the roads are too bad for the help to come immediately.  Being “green” and removing snow by “letting the sun melt it” is not an acceptable excuse.

2)Find if the person you are dealing with is having a bad day or if he or she is just an incompetent twit.  This can usually be done by observation.  If the person’s eyes are red and glazed, it’s usually the latter.

I was so inspired by the comments people were giving me for yesterday’s posting, that it has inspired me to make a poster.  Feel free to print out the poster and hang it up in your bedroom, cubicle, locker, or jail cell.

Done! Now!

A Little Motivation

Once in a while I will post something to help you with motivation.  Today, I present the motivational poster for the 2012 Presidential campaign.

Motivation is the thing that gets you to do the things you don’t want to do.  For example, I did not want to blog today.  The feeling changed when I saw the picture above.  Now I feel motivated.  The motivation will not stop here.  There are other things for me to do!

  • Pimp myself to get on television and radio shows (besides my show)
  • My 2003 and 2004 income taxes
  • Go through Grandma Oudda’s recipe book with a “Romanian-to-English” dictionary.
  • Mow the carpet and vacuum the yard.

Now that I feel motivated, I am going to head out and get things done.  If the poster has motivated you, feel free to share how in the comments section.  LET’S GET MOTIVATED!!!

Anyone Can Stand Up For Principle

You’re at home or at work reading this.  You are as sick and tired of the nothingness of the two major parties as I am.  You are tired of having the Cinemafia saying what is socially acceptable behavior.  You don’t know where to turn…

As you know, I am an independent with alternative ideas to get things done.  Together we can get things done and change America.  There are things that will have to wait until I become President to accomplish.  Other things can be done now.

You can stand up to your principles and fight the Cinemafia.  Faylene Frampton has, and she’s only 11 years old.  Faylene was a cheerleader in a Nebraska elementary school.  She was kicked off the cheerleading squad because she refused to “shake her booty.”  The cheerleading coach sees nothing wrong with girls (some of whom are in the second grade) with shaking their booties and neither does the Cinemafia.

Elementary school girls are not sex objects.  Faylene knows this and stood up to corruption in the minds of children even though she is a child herself.  Being a cheerleader and rooting for your team or school is one thing.  Shaking booties and trying to arouse middle-aged balding men who live with their parents is another.

Stand up for what you believe in.  Don’t be afraid of what can happen if you do.  Be afraid of what can happen if you don’t.  Faylene Frampton stood up.  You can too.
