Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump confirms he is seeking a $2 billion arms deal including the main U.S. battle tank- the M1A1- as well as a restock on all other offensive weapons. Beijing goes ballistic and expresses their immense displeasure that the American running dogs would do such a horrible thing as to sell weapons to a free and independent country. (Note- a year later, it would appear they paid us back with COVID-19…well, later this year. Coincidence? Don’t count on it).

  52. 2021 Saturday: Ah, it’s the weekend, let’s hope it’s a slow news day…oh, wait!  President Donald J. Trump is speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention in Greenville this evening.  That is going to send a shiver of cold fear down the backs of the Bidenistas and the Chi-Coms…

Jethro Tull heard their critics loud and clear- stop with the lengthy pieces and avoid going down the pop road.  Thus, the next album the band released- “A Minstrel in the Gallery”- came out on September 05, 1975.  The lineup featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums) and the album more resembled the band’s first four studio albums than it did any of its immediate predecessors.  We enjoy this album and know that you will, too, so we encourage everyone to seek this one out at your favorite site for nothing but the absolute BEST in music and then adding it to your ever-growing collection.  We began offering the best music back in the early days of 2009 and have continued that effort to the present day.  Please, check it out, give it a good listen, and enjoy.

[i] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States.  Pay no attention to these scumbags.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Badfinger at the AICPENDBLOG.COM beginning Monday, May 03, 2021 to Sunday, May 23, 2021.
