Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

The Women’s World Cup

I spent my afternoon watching the women’s World Cup Final between the United States and Japan.  And although the United States didn’t win, our women have nothing to be ashamed of.  There’s something to be said about motivation.  The Japanese team was motivated from the Fukushima earthquake and nuclear reactor.  A similar thing happened in 1980 when the US hockey team was motivated by the failure of the Jimmy Carter presidency.

There were two things about the World Cup that bothered me.  The first thing is that overtime wasn’t sudden death.  The US scored the first goal in overtime.  In most other sports, the first team that scores wins.  There isn’t much scoring in soccer, so the first goal is that much more important.  The second thing that disturbed me was the game ending on penalty kicks.  Spending two hours playing soccer only to have a game end on penalty kicks is wrong (especially in a final game of a tournament.)

The NHL has a shootout to end tie games in the regular season.  But even they realize that a shootout is no way to determine who gets to hoist the Stanley Cup.  If Game 7 of the World Series was to be tied after nine innings, they would go to extra innings.  They wouldn’t resort to a home run derby to determine a championship.

Soccer would be more popular in the United States if it had a sudden-death format with whomever scoring first would win.  It would also help if they kept playing until somebody scored.

Another Look at my Energy Plan

One of my first radio shows on BlogTalk Radio dealt with alternative energy.  It was back in 2008 when gas was $4.00 per gallon.  I was the first presidential candidate to suggest using multiple alternative energy sources.  (Why just windmills?  Why just hydro-power?  Why just cow farts?)  I suggested using it all.  John McCain later offered a watered-down version of my plan, but it was too late.

Fast forward to March 11, 2011.  A devastating earthquake hits northern Japan.  The earthquake caused an explosion at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.  A scenario like this can happen in the United States.  There are at least two nuclear power plants in the Unites States that are built on fault lines.  They say that safeguards are in place; but in the end, nature always beats man.

I am not against nuclear power plants.  I am against nuclear power plants on fault lines.  It’s like having a Weight Watcher’s meeting at McDonald’s.  It just doesn’t work.  Never did and never will.

If you can’t beat them, join them.  I know we can’t beat nature.  We can use what nature is willing to give us for energy.  This isn’t just for the windmills, hydro-power, and cow farts I mentioned earlier.  This also include other ways to merge nature and science.  Cloning hamsters and running them in a wheel to generate electricty is an option.  The cloning will assure we don;t run out of hamsters and make hamsters cost prohibitive.

My thoughts and prayers are with the people in Japan.  Hopefully we can learn from this and better ourselves without risking lives.
