- 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature. The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less. Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape. Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law. California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
- 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’ What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On April 15, 1977, Electric Light Orchestra released one of their biggest albums to date: “Out of the Blue.” This album sold an amazing 10 million records hitting gold and platinum status all over the place. It produced some amazing singles such as “Turn to Stone,” “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Sweet Talkin’ Woman,” “Wild West Hero,” and “It’s Over.” Many of these tunes were on the radio for what seemed like years which only increased the album’s sales as well as others from their discography. It also made them one of the biggest concert performers of the time which kept them going for more than a decade. The lineup once again featured the lineup of Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Kelly Groucutt (bass, backing vocals), Melvyn Gale (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), and Hugh McDowell (cello), with some help from some of their musical friends.
