- 2017 Monday: In a speech to a national Boy Scout gathering in West Virginia, President Donald J. Trump railed against his enemies and promoted his political agenda, bringing an angry reaction from some parents and former Scouts from both parties. Oh, boo f**king hoo.

- 2018 Tuesday: Near Athens, Greece, swift-moving wildfires, blamed on out of control global warming, continue wreaking havoc across the region killing 91, injuring 104, and causing another 600 to flee into the water being rescued by boats.

- 2020 Friday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,628,936 confirmed cases, UP by 310,939 cases, 636,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,410 deaths, and 8.917,141 confirmed recoveries, UP by 195,726 recoveries.

(The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
- 2020 Friday A: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 435,334 confirmed cases, UP 7,718, 8,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 159, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,490 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,125 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 50,009 confirmed cases, 1,482 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.
- 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,469.89, DOWN 182.44 points (-0.68%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,363.18, DOWN 98.24 points (-0.94%).

- 2020 Friday C: President Donald J. Trump signed four executive orders designed to lower drug prices for all Americans. As things have stood for decades, Americans are screwed on health care costs because allied and other nations enjoy cheaper, more reasonable costs for their prescription drugs. The first order would permit importation of medications from countries where the costs are more reasonable and realistic. A nation such as Canada would be among the prime countries of export. Another executive order removes the huge profits wholesalers enjoy- so-called middlemen- by slashing them to much more reasonable amounts. The third order would cut the costs of insulin while the fourth would force the federal government to buy drugs for Medicare at the lower costs they are in other countries. Now, how about allowing ALL health care providers to compete in every state as well as to offer a wider variety of plans addressing all needs of all Americans? That would be amazing. MR. PRESIDENT- PLEASE DO NOT BUY OUR DRUGS FROM COMMUNIST FLIPPING CHINA!
- 2020 Friday D: Communist China orders the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu as retaliation for the U.S. order to them to close their spy hub in Houston. The Chin swear they are not going to leave the Houston, Texas, consulate but they need to get their s**t and get the hell out of the country. All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roger Hodgson released his second album, “Hai-Hai,” on September 27, 1987. Unfortunately, this album was not as well received as his debut album but what the heck- it is what it is. Joining the artist were Jeff Porcaro and several others (drums), Dan Huff (guitars), Nathan East and Leland Sklar (bass), Larry Williams- among others- (saxophone), and loads of other supporting musicians. We have always liked Hodgson as his lyrics and music are a joy to behold which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out and consider making it a part of your collection.

[i] It would appear the Department of War would become the first victim of political correctness.
[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014. We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.
[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015. We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.
[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.
[v] We hope to share the music of Little Richard one day. Not sure as to when, however.
[vi] Not sure when we will do the music of Judas Priest- if ever.
[vii] Not sure as to when we will do the music of America but please stay tuned.
[viii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land. At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.
[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless the blog site is still here in 50 years.
