Keep being confident, Madam Speaker, going to be fun seeing what you have to say on November 4. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has NO campaign events today after President Donald J. Trump blasted the old bigot for using a teleprompter to answer scripted questions. Ai-yi-yi! Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he appeared before a massive crowd in Michigan today Stunning!

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day. We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”
[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years. We hope you will still be with us.
[iii] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Aerosmith but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Talking Heads shared as well. Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs.
[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014. We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.
[v] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014. This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.
[vi] We look forward to doing the music of Willie Dixon along with other great bluesmen of the era like Muddy Waters, and all the rest of the great voices of America that made the music of our country what it is.
[vii] When we return to promoting American bands, Cheap Trick will be towards the top so please stay alert. You won’t want to miss them.
[viii] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.
[ix] The French are under numerous terrorist threats and yet, they won’t discuss them out of fear of offending the massive Muslim population the dimwits have allowed to overrun their country. Round them up and deport them back to whence they came.
[x] Any college geography class will drive this point home.
