- 2020 Saturday A: Protests continue around the nation over the death of George Floyd this past Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The night before, extremely violent protests left many cities little more than moonscapes with stores burnt down, the husks of cars littering the streets. As day progressed, more and more protesters and rioters returned to the streets and began going at it again. There can be NO question that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party via funding and resources because the level of coordination for the conflagrations around the country is beyond most liberal losers to pull off on their own. We believe that President Trump must rebuff Beijing every day and tell them, “YOU aren’t getting away with this!” Free Hong Kong! Free Taiwan! Free Macau! Free Tibet! Now, for the Wuhan Bat Flu statistics. Here we go:
- 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned. Many aren’t wearing masks. Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths. Excellent. Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers. In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries. Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS. In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good. Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics. Shame on him! Shame on Gov. Newsom! Recall BOTH of them.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The record company of Pink Floyd- EMI and Capitol- delivered a stunning BEST OF compilation on November 05, 2001, the acclaimed “Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd.” This effort was close to comprehensive although it did not contain music from “More,” “Ummagumma,” “Atom Heart Mother,” and “Obscured by Clouds,” which no one is sure as to why, especially the second and third albums mentioned. Those two have some wonderful music on them and deserve to have entries in a slick effort such as this album. Still, IF you have as yet NOT introduced the music of this phenomenal band to your hungry ears, you can rectify that mistake by doing so NOW. Visit Amazon.com or whatever else site you do for the best in music. We thank you.

Original Beverly Carrick Artworks, Beverly Carrick—World Famous Artist, The Clash, Topper Headon, Carl Radle, Eric Clapton, Derek and the Dominos, Peter Keys, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Beatles, “The White Album”, Associate Justice John Catron, Just the Facts, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jim Murray, Pink Floyd, Olaf Bologolo, Mike Tyson v. Pinklon Thomas,
[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions. The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011. The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013. We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.
[ii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash. They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.
[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade. At least by 2029.
[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys. The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016. Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.
[v] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014. Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates. You will be glad you did. Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them. We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.
