Ahmnodt Heare for President

Campaigning Schedule Postponed

Due to the excessive heat expected in the Northeastern United States this weekend, the campaign stops I had scheduled for this week is postponed until next weekend.  Temperatures in Philadelphia are supposed to reach near 100 degrees with the heat index approaching 110 degrees.  The weather is expected to be sunny with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s.

I will be heading to Rhode Island on Monday.  It appears that the oil spill will not being affecting Rhode Island after all, which means I am going to have to retrieve the boom I had lowered when I was there in early June.

Bad news:  The recession is now galaxy wide.  Darth Vader robbed a bank in Long Island.  He probably did it for his son, who is marrying a princess.  Weddings involving princesses are not cheap.  I will not chew more than I can carry.  While solving the economic woes throughout the galaxy is important, my main concern is solving the economic woes of the free world.  This will make it easier for aliens like Darth to find a job in the United States. (Providing that Darth is in the United States legally.)

“Oil-in-Water”-Gate

In a perfect world, I wouldn’t be writing about the BP oil spill any more.  There wouldn’t have been an explosion on April 20 because the rig workers would have been doing something more constructive.

Since there was an explosion (and hence the perpetual oil disaster), BP would have promptly started containing and cleaning up the oil before the oil reached the Gulf coast.  The federal government would have stepped in as soon as it appeared that BP wasn’t able to contain the oil.  Both BP and the government would have listened to suggestions that others had.

An accident has turned into a disaster.  BP and the federal government’s poor response has lead to “Oil-in-Water-Gate”  Globs of oil have polluted the shorelines.  Plumes under the gulf seem to be getting larger.  Not only do Americans know what  the word “plume” is, we’re using the word in everyday conversation.  This needs to stop.

BP’s cleanup seems to be limited to the oil they are siphoning near the leak and only because they are able to refine that oil and sell it.  Most of the people cleaning up the spills are local people who just happen to like clean coastlines where they live.  There is a minimal presence from BP and the government when it comes to cleanup.

I will be back in Rhode Island in two weeks and lay down the rest of the boom.  I would do it sooner, but it will take that long to get 40 miles (minus 300 feet), a ship large enough to carry the boom, and enough volunteers.  My biggest concern is that the oil might be in Rhode Island’s coast by then because not enough is being done now.

Here is a video on how the oil spill started:

BP, Where Are You?

The oil spill is everywhere in the news.  It’s on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, Cartoon Network, and the local news shows.  They show miles of empty beached drizzled with tar balls.  There are few beach goers and even fewer people picking up the tar balls.  Most of the tar balls seem to be picked up by sun worshipers who accidentally step on them and it gets stuck to the flip-flops.

There are tens of thousands who are unemployed along the Gulf coast.  BP should hire those people to clean up the beaches and the Gulf.  The first people I would hire would be the fishermen and the other people who have lost jobs as a result of the oil spill.  It would be cheaper for BP to clean the mess than for them to have the government clean the spill and bill BP.  They could pay the workers less because they’re not union employees.  And because they’re not union employees, they will get the job done in a more timely manner.

We are all tried of hearing about the oil spill, but the people most tired are those whose livelihood has been affected.  BP should try not to be like the Obama administration.  They should listen to me.  President Obama hasn’t listened to me and unemployment is now at almost 10%.  The price of movies keeps increasing, and more Canadian spies are infiltrating the American entertainment industry.  It would be in America’s best interest for BP to heed my advice.

Lowering the Boom

It took me a while to find volunteers to help me lower the boom.  That was the least of the problems.  I was able to get a boat, but it was much smaller than I thought I would have liked.

Jared the boat operator navigated out of Providence Harbor towards Block Island.  The boom was supposed to be at the dock for us to pick up.  When we arrived at the dock, there was no boom, but a middle-aged man who told us we had to get the boom in the office.

The building where the office did not seem that big.  There was no way there was 30 miles of boom.  I shouldn’t be complaining though because there is no way we could fit it in the boat.  We soon got in the office and saw the boom.  It wasn’t 30 miles or even 1 mile.  It was 300 feet.  It was all they could get on short notice.

300 feet suddenly seemed like a lot of boom when it came time to take it out to the boat.  Boom is heavy.   We were able to get it from the building to the boat.  The hard part was finding a way to get the boom in the boat.  Jared got on the boat and made room for the boom.  The rest of us hoisted the boom up to Jared.  Foot by foot by agonizing foot, the boom was hoisted and placed until the entire boom was on the boat.

The boom was loaded and we were ready to head out.  Jared suggested we go a half mile south of Block Island.  There will be critics that will say that 300 feet of boom will not do a thing.  Every little bit helps.  There is still time before the oil from the Gulf of Mexico reaches Rhode Island.  The 300 feet will be a starting point for the boom to be placed in the weeks to come.  Preparing now and not waiting until the last minute will save Rhode Island from having tar balls on its beaches and waterway.

A Weekend in Rhode Island

I am back in full campaign mode and I am starting off in the state of Rhode Island.  This is a last-minute decision and I don’t have a plan yet.  The plan is contingent on events happening through the state, which I will look at soon.

One of the things I will be doing this weekend (probably tomorrow) is heading to the coast and set up boom from the Connecticut border to the Massachusetts border.  All I need is a ship, 40 miles of boom, and some volunteers.  The boom will be used to block oil from entering Rhode Island.  Though the oil is still 1,000 miles away, now is the time to act.  Other states have dilly-dallied and are now paying the price.

This weekend will not be limited to setting up the boom.  There are other issues that I will be addressing.  As soon as I set a schedule, I will post them on my Twitter account.
