Trump and the GOP.

Trump’s words.  We learn of a program called Centra that allows the ‘social media twerps’ to follow their users across a variety of social media spectrums compiling dossiers on every user of their sites.  Not only is this dangerous, it is outright EVIL as none of these little closet fairies has any right to censor anyone, much less track anyone across the World Wide Web.  Senators, do your duty and break them up as well as Google and deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh or wherever the hell the scumbag emanates.
  57. 2020 Tuesday B: Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1608 with a $135 million jackpot on the line- here are the numbers- 08, 13, 35, 46, 68, and Mega 16.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,515 apiece.

  59. 2020 Tuesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,051,642 confirmed cases, 18,317 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,711 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and today, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- that’s unusual.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 139,275 confirmed cases, 2,664 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Louisiana: 207,685 confirmed number of cases, 6,156  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s Governor John Bel Edwards for you.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 325,537 confirmed cases, 2,736 confirmed deaths, and 313,643 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,783.35, DOWN 167.09 points (-0.56%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,899.34, DOWN 24.79 points (-0.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,609.53, DOWN 17.38 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,880.40 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.25%) while the price of SILVER is $24.56 per troy ounce, -0.091 (-0.37%).  The price of PLATINUM is $933.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, +0.007 (+0.22%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,326.50 per troy oz., -18.60 (-0.79%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.22 per barrel, -0.21 (-0.51%).  Today, COCOA is $2,435.00 per metric ton, -0.82 (-3.26).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.56 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Seeing as how Foreigner was going through some ‘unprofitable changes,’ the band’s record company stepped in and released the group’s first live album, “Classic Hits Live/Best of Live” on November 16, 1993.  The album contained classic live tunes culled from performances between 1977 and 1985 so you have the following lineup of personnel: Mick Jones (guitars), Ian McDonald (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Al Greenwood (keyboards), Ed Gagliardi (bass, vocals), Dennis Elliot (drums), Lou Gramm (vocals), and Rick Wills (bass).  Every song is smoking hot so for fans of the band, this was a godsend whereas for others, they gave it passing note in the same way they did the Bad Company of the 1990s.  We like it so you understand what that means, seek it out, give it a listen, and determine if it’s right for you- you won’t find much better.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PF001.3h Soldier’s Tale #60 05-30-2020 (400)

 

Roger Waters returned with his next studio album, a classic to be sure- “Igor Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale,” on October 26, 2019. This is a fitting effort for him in that he has orchestral backing and voices all the characters of the famed story. If you love classical music, if you love narrations, this is something worth adding to your collection because it is unique and enjoyable. We hope you will seek it out, give it a listen, and then add it to your collection in the condition, format, and price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[ii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014. Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates. You will be glad you did. Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them. We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[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.
