2005 Saturday: Following the filing against him of war crimes charges resulting from U.S. actions in the Iraq War, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cancels an appearance in Germany, the country where the charges were filed. This also follows a report from the Washington Post regarding a clandestine organization within the Pentagon that allows the U.S. military to skirt cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency, and which is under direct control of Secretary Rumsfeld. Known as the Strategic Support Branch, it allows military intelligence to do whatever they have to do to ‘question’ jihadist suspects. In some circles, we call this “TORTURE.”

  62. 2013 Tuesday: Chinese researchers discover an ancient human fossil in a cave near Beijing; the 40,000-year-old leg bone shows that it was related to present-day Asians and Native Americans, thus the Chi-Coms would have us believe that they have a claim to North America.  Let’s nuke these SOBs.

  71. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  72. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.

  74. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”

Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous vote puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret., as the new 28th secretary of Defense.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense David Norquist stepped down on this date.  He served from January 20 until today.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?

  80. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.

  82. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs.  Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece.  UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information.  FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.
  83. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)

On September 16, 2007, Sandy Denny’s label released a concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out three days earlier, also called “Live at the BBC.”  This one contained the unreleased tracks augmented with some others so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Friday, January 22, 2021, Today in History:  

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

Saturday, January 22, 2022:


[i] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Billy Preston one day.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[v] 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.

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.
