I wasn’t sure we were going to win on Election Day but win we did- especially in the subsequent weeks as we fended off one attempt by Trump after another to steal it for himself

How the Republicans gained seats in the House and with some pretty controversial characters no less while the top of their ticket went down to defeat is beyond me. Still he did and the proof of the matter is that for the past three months there has been nothing but shrill cries of ‘ELECTION THEFT! ELECTION FRAUD! ELECTION TAMPERING!’

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 645

November 3 was an amazing victory not just for the country but for the entire world…

Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-01-2021 Monday:  Happy days are here again- or are they?  Lalo is not here right now; he’s gone to Florida to reconnoiter what it will take for us to open a fast-food Hawaiian-Polynesian restaurant in Tampa Bay or wherever else seems suitable for family-saving idea.  We have concluded that our home state is dying and there won’t be much left when it does begin returning to life.  It’s not like one can flip a wall switch and everything just suddenly reboots.

However, we hope to make something selling the home and business- even though the market for both is depressed- which will cover the costs of moving to Florida, finding a suitable drive-in, getting our food, beer, and wine licenses, and giving it a go there.  Here in the 50th state, the COVID-19 crisis has destroyed our beautiful, beloved state to the point our family arrived at the conclusion- we going to become ‘haole mainlanders’ although we’re not light-skinned enough to pass for ones.  LOL.    

Well, we weren’t sure what was going to occur on November 3 but it seems to have worked out in the nation’s favor.  Joe Biden beat Donald Trump and in so doing pulled in more votes than any president in U.S. history even though he won fewer counties and failed to win either Florida or Ohio.  It was a stunning triumph to be sure and the Aloha State celebrated the glorious victory to the best of our ability thanks to coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions.  IF only we still had Primo beer.

I must admit, we were surprised that we were able to gain control of the U.S. Senate but gain control we did, even if by a slim majority.  Chuck Schumer is now the boss in the upper chamber and Nancy Pelosi reigns supreme in the lower chamber even though she has a far slimmer majority than anyone thought she would.  We honestly thought we were going to increase the size of the majority so we would hold onto power for decades to come.

How the Republicans gained seats in the House and with some pretty controversial characters no less while the top of their ticket went down to defeat is beyond me.  Still he did and the proof of the matter is that for the past three months there has been nothing but shrill cries of ‘ELECTION THEFT!  ELECTION FRAUD!  ELECTION TAMPERING!’  That is all we heard and I must say, it was horribly embarrassing for our country to have a president who would not submit to the will of the American people. 

Likewise, it was embarrassing that he would welcome neither then-President-elect Joseph R. and incoming First Lady Dr. Jill Biden to the White House.  That has been tradition from the earliest days of our country.   The outgoing regime welcomes the incoming president and his wife.  Yet, this lug didn’t.  It shows what a loser he was.   

I do not believe we have ever had such a scenario in the history of the country, a potential renegade president clinging to the draperies in the East Wing, refusing to be evicted along with every member of his grubby family. 

Moreover, they never saw what hit them, they never saw that the American people had had enough of the ‘First Family of Reality TV,’ driving the country- and the world- insane with all the shenanigans, all the wrongdoings, all the mishandling of the wonderful country handed to him and his fellow losers in January 2017.  We had had more than enough.  

That is not to say that the 45th president didn’t do a few good things.  After all, he was tough on the border which is a good thing- even here in Hawaii- although he didn’t have to act like a racist about it.  Yes, we have our noncitizens here, too, although mostly visa overstays and the like seeing as how the pine and cane are long gone  No need for armies of agricultural workers. 

Still, drunken drivers around the islands cause their share of problems so we don’t lament it when they are scooped up and sent back to where they came which typically is Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, and Japan. 

He also did things that were good for the economy, things we hope President Biden will continue although it does not look that way, for whatever reason.  I get it, #45 truly messed up the pandemic which nullified all the economic gains so if we have to slow down until we can get things back up to speed, I guess Joe and Kamala know what they’re doing.

Still, if we relocate to sunny Florida which in many ways bears some resemblance to our beloved islands, at least the economy is booming there and we might be able to resurrect what we had here over there.  Perhaps someday, we can return to the islands and pick up the pieces but Governor Ige has caused so much hardship here that it’s impossible to believe.   Who knows?  Maybe Tulsi will run for the governorship?  That would be great.

Aloha my friends, we will continue tomorrow.  Thanks for joining me today and for all those blocking our blog from search results, look, you have a liberal, albeit God-fearing Democrat, so please, give me some room to run.  We are not all right-wing conservatives you know.  Oh- as for the Today in History segments, although my name is on them, I don’t necessarily write them.  Usually, Smitty or Alvin or Mo do them so give me a pass there, too.

See you tomorrow.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs. 

That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born.  I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. 

Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu.  My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.

We continue offering CDs today by the greatest San Francisco band of all time, the Jefferson Airplane.  The band’s sixteenth album, “Jefferson Airplane,” hit record store shelves on August 22, 1989 and found the lineup everybody considers the “original” one reunited—excepting drummer Spencer Dryden.  Due to bad blood between him and founding member, Paul Kantner, the latter was able to keep him out bringing in drummer Prairie Prince to replace him.  Still, we had Grace Slick, Jorma Kaukonen, Marty Balin, and Jack Casady here, which is reason enough to seek this CD out at Amazon.com.   As the band had not played together for more than a decade, it was surprisingly good but lacked the sound of the early days.  Still, we urge you to visit the Amazon.com website, so you can pick it up and teleport yourself back to the good old days when everything was about love, ending the war in Vietnam, dropping acid (and other psychedelics) and smoking weed, which now anyone can get with a flipping medical card.
