  60. 2020 Friday: Global health authorities now say there are 100,000 cases of the coronavirus worldwide.  China remains the epicenter but getting the truth out of the communist nation is more difficult than pulling the teeth from a living dragon.  Liberals hopes for November take another nosedive what with February jobs numbers hitting 273,000 with a drop in the unemployment numbers to 3.5%.  Meanwhile wages across the nation are up by 3-percent.  Hence the Democrats continue trying to connect President Donald Trump to the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, the president stops in tornado-ravaged Nashville while on the way to the CDC in Atlanta.  He spends time on the ground consoling the victims of the hellacious storms. 
  61. 2021 Saturday: Today is Day 46 of the Biden Regime, socialism and communism never sleeps nor does beating the rug looking for all the white supremacists the LEFT claims are lurking all over the place.  They must have their radicals mixed up- it’s the Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter bobbing up and down in the liberal crapper, the one the Chi-Coms never seem to wish to flush…late in the evening/early in the morning, Chuck Schumer’s Senate passes the massive $1.9 trillion Joe Biden PORKULUS bill with which supposedly to relieve COVID-19 suffering.  Joe, you still have a trillion languishing from the previous Chi-Vi relief bill that has not yet been spent so what the f**k?

  64. 2021 Saturday C: As if things cannot get any worse for the embattled Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Empire State’s soon-to-be-ex-governor, two of his senior female aides have thrown in the towel and left him in the lurch.  “Killer Cuomo,” just f**king resign.   Elsewhere, as illegal aliens continue swarming across the border and people become shocked by what’s going on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in any pack- says, ‘we don’t take advice from Donald J. Trump.’  You would be wise if you did.   Speaking of President Trump, he endorses South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster for another run in 2022 just as he endorses Lt. Gov. Griffin on Arkansas as that state’s next attorney-general.   West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says the people must act to stop the power grab the Biden administration is carrying out against the country.    Finally, eight Senate Democrats balk at the $15 per hour minimum wage sought by the Biden administration.

On November 01, 1975, the Band managed to shelve their differences and get back to work.  The subsequent album, “Northern Lights, Southern Cross,” featured not one, not two, but three glorious songs that make it worth owning by every fan new and old.  “Ophelia” is about a woman every man has known at one time or another while “It Makes No Difference” is a lamentable tune that defines the end of a relationship that could either be one between lovers of between band members.  “Acadian Driftwood,’ the third tune, also is one that evokes an emotional response which makes this album superb.  The band features the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Saturday, March 06, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:


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…

Sunday, March 06, 2022:


[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of Pink Floyd within the next two years.  The offering will include the solo efforts of the individual members, too, like David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Syd Barrett, Nicky Mason, and Rick Wright. 

[iii] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iv] Vladimir Putin stole the Crimea from the Ukraine during the second term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  From 2017 on, Democrats and anti-Trumper garbage claim that President Donald J. Trump is in bed with Moscow, when in fact, it was Obama who was the bed buddy of Comrade Putin.  Shame.
