Why Is Inauguration…

Why is the Presidential Inauguration in January?  I’ve been watching some of the folks that came out to support President-elect Obama and they, for the most part, looked pretty chilled by the weather.  One must reflect on the Inauguration of William Henry Harrison, 9th President of the United States, who served a mere 30 days due to, in effect, catching a cold at his finest moment, (did he quote from Keats, or am I mixing my scarfless ones?) and dying a month subsequently; the reflection is this: Why, as an educated nation which leads the world in wealth and power, do we cling to such ill advised observances of respect as to have a presidential inauguration take place at the coldest time of the year–particularly when, and ironically so, we observe our nation’s ceremonial independence on one of the most temperate days of the year.  We go to the beach and cook hot dogs and hamburgers as our salute to the flag.  Wouldn’t it, I mean (almost forgot) wouldn’t it make more sense to sacrifice a picnic and inaugurate (swear in–?) a president?

Friends, this is something I will change if I am elected in the near future.

I Ain’t No Republican

But I Promise, as an Independent American, to keep our current President HONEST!

Loyal Opposition means that the task falls upon the Kimball Campaign to challenge my good friend, President Obama, at every turn.  There are times when we will differ and times when we will break bread, and, God willing and the creeks don’t rise, at the end of the day, we will leave America better than we found it.  I call for every American to both support our current administration in serving the current needs of the American people in the urgent areas of defense, economic growth, healthcare reform, and education, as well as demand accountablility from this admnistration to propose and execute a logical, acceptable plan for the future well-being of our nation.  We have placed a great deal of trust and wealth in the hands of a few.  I am an optimist, and I am sure things will work out for the best.  I am also running for President in 2012.

Kimball’s the name, Hank Kimball

I Feel Like A Slurpee

I felt like a Slurpee, so we stopped at a 7-Eleven.  It was three o’clock in the morning and they were open.  I asked the clerk, who wore a Clark University sweatshirt, why they called it 7-Eleven if it was open 24-Seven?  He told me it used to be open 7am-11pm, but then the convenience world changed in 1962.  I asked if it had anything to do with the Cuban Missle Crisis?  He just gave me a look. 

 Leaning forward, he softly remarked, “As you drink your Slurpee under the umbrella of freedom, just remember one thing: it is never improper to tip.”

“Have you heard of Hank Kimball,” I asked him?

Today’s Thought

 
Are “whiteboards” more “green” than “blackboards?”

The Campaign Bus Blew a Tire

These things happen. I am hoping we make it to Hope Valley Rhode Island by Saturday for the Economic Crisis Conference. Sometimes tires blow out and the only choices you have are to call AAA or change the tire yourself.  If you believe in AAA, you might as well put that loose molar under your pillow too.
