“Just the Facts: this Easter, let us set aside our differences but let’s remember, too, that Democrats are fighting to FIX our problems while the GOP fights to protect the status quo and its own wealth” by Chef Itzi Nakamura
SPRING SESSION 2019
BLOG POST #3,094 AT THE AICP-END
563 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
EASTER SUNDAY 2019
We can fix the problems dogging us if we do it together
Kihei, HI, 04-21-2019 Sunday: Friends, welcome to the Easter Sunday 2019 Edition of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day. Welcome, welcome, and welcome. We went to church early this morning and let me tell you, there is nothing like going to a Catholic Church on Maui for Easter, especially in Kahului. Oh, sure, if you have ever visited Manila, you know the Filipino people go all out for all Christian-Catholic holidays. Christmas there is unlike anywhere else in the world (although I am partial to the celebrations we have here at home).
We love decorating Easter eggs, we love setting the restaurant up with all the holiday trimmings and decorations. I wish we could have Easter with us all year-round as then, perhaps, we could set aside the political anger that seems to devour each of us.
I recognize that Donald J. Goober is a horrible president. However, he still is a human being as are members of his family. I do not believe that any of them are inherently evil, that they would do people on our side any harm. Like the old Dave Mason song from the 1970s, “We Just Disagree.” Wasn’t that a splendid tune?
For far too long, the two political parties have been at war with each another. Republicans made every single day of Barack Obama’s two terms in office a living hell. I mean, none of them would work with him except on very rare occasions.
I remember when the Democrats were striving to solve the health care problem, the one that causes many Americans sleepless nights. When someone has no clue how they are going to pay for life-saving medicines, tests, and treatments, their entire world turns upside down, especially if the afflicted is a child or an infant.
Republicans were content with the status quo. I guess many of them are doctors, high-paid physicians, hospitalists, medical technicians, so why would they want to surrender the gravy train that pours boatloads of cash into their coffers?
Oh, sure, they can accuse Democrats of receiving cash from unions but unions are in decline while the fastest-growing industry in the United States has been the health care-medical-medical technology industries. The costs of medications are higher here than anywhere else around the world and some people will forego food so they can buy the necessary medicines keeping them alive.
Now, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was not the perfect fix. However, it was a ‘fix.’ At the time, something needed to be done and the then-president reached out across the aisle, seeking some brave Republicans to join with him in fixing the health care system that was stuck like a sputtering German tank in the Russian mud outside Moscow.
As I recall, there were NO takers, no Republican possessed the big pair of swinging balls to cross the aisle to work with him. Heck, even some of the Democrats were afraid of going against what their voters back home demanded, fearing that if they voted YES on what opponents of the president blasted as “SOCIALISM” they would lose their seats, which sadly, many of them did.
It requires bravery to do the right thing, especially when there are numerous enemies just waiting an opportunity to take one down. President Obama saw the loss of the House in 2010 and then the Senate in 2012 and 2014 and still he fought to do the right thing.
Oh, I know the Republicans thought they had him but when the ACA finally became law and the American people survived the opening hiccups when the online exchanges suffered problems but then finally recovered, they came to like what they had. Finally, many uninsured Americans, many with pre-existing conditions were able to buy affordable health care insurance and in so doing improve their lives.
I do not know what is going to happen in the future. What I do know is that Democrats possess the necessary bravery to tackle the things that must be done, not cringe in the corner slinging insults at the ones trying to fix the nation’s problems.
I do not know who will end up being our standard-bearer; what I do know is that no matter who it is, President Donald J. Goober will be in for the fight of his life. Our people may have some issues, may not come across well on the television screen as the polished buffoon does but they are all of good heart, possess the prerequisite smarts to do the job, and will not give up on trying to help ALL the American people.
We can solve the problems irking us such as health care, the cost of living, costs of higher education, being able to find and buy starter homes so one does not have to abandon the community in which they and their families have lived for decades and even longer and relocate to somewhere else on the other side of the country.
What’s more, we can solve the border crisis without losing our humanity or destroying that of those seeking refuge here. We can and will do these things. You can count on it.
Until next time, live in the aloha spirit, love one another, and happy Easter. Until next time, thank you and God bless you, I hope He enriches your lives as he has mine.

I must say I am amazed that the AICP-END Blog would send up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the amazing Simone to Maui to do some photographic portraits of me. We have moved in this direction since politics have turned millions of people against one another and it is important for us as employers and as private people with families to protect, that we begin covering our actual identities from those seeking to cause us problems. I must say, Simone has done a fine job and this is a caricature of me that meets with my approval. My husband and I live and own a restaurant in Kihei, Hawaii, and have also worked in institutional cooking at Maui’s premier hospital up in Wailuku.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:
On March 28, 1980, Genesis released its next album “Duke.” There is no describing what a monster-seller this album was at the time with not one but two massive radio hits: “Misunderstanding” and “Turn It On Again.” Still a three piece, the band consisted of Mike Rutherford (bass/guitars), and Phil Collins (lead vocals/drums), and Tony Banks (keyboards/guitars) and there was no looking back. This album opened the door to the 1980s, for all the albums that would follow, making this group one of the all-time big sellers. We urge everyone to seek this album out and add it to their growing collection; we know you will love it so buy it now- wherever you shop for music.
SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:
Posted @ the Monday, July 30, 2012 Blog Post:
The estate of Randy California released his next album in concert with his step-father, drummer/percussionist Ed Cassidy, the remastered and expanded version of a classic on May 26, 2006: “The Original Potato Land.” A long-sought classic, rather like the Beach Boys’ “Smile,” the album was recorded in the early 1970s and features a psychedelic, heady, go-with-the-flow-style music. John Locke of Spirit fame joins on keyboards as do other guest musicians. If you want to hear a phenomenal album from the times, this is one everyone must add to their ever-growing collection of fine music. Please, seek it out and add it to your collection; you will be so glad you did.
Posted @ the Monday, June 16, 2014 Blog Post C:
Rod Stewart released his next solo effort on October 18, 2005, “Thanks for the Memories: the Great American Songbook IV.” Unlike Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart began to accept the fact that he was no longer a young rocker and since he did covers of a vast number of other people’s songs, there was no reason not to continue onward in the easy-listening genre of music. As always, he has a sterling cast of musicians joining him and the album sold very well, becoming the fourth installment of a five-album series. Please, seek it out wherever you seek out the best in rock-and-roll music- you will be glad you did.
