  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

  55. 2010 Sunday: Somali pirates take to the high seas once again and capture a German oil tanker plying the waters off East Africa.  Seems like it’s getting about time to go in there and crucify these scumbags the way Caesar did pirates in the Mediterranean when he was a young man.  How about the modern equivalent?  Let’s use neutron bombs on these bastards.
  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.

  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?  
  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

  26. 1918 Thursday: The Germans are launching all-out assaults on the Western Front along the Somme and Avre Rivers, the goal once again to knock the Allies out before all is lost.  The Imperial German forces have been able to bring most of their troops from Eastern Europe for one last push although they have to make sure the Russians stick to the agreement, they hammered out with Berlin in exchange for not having substantial portions of their western territories like the Ukraine kept as war booty.
  27. 1919 Friday: Allied troops continue fighting with White Russian forces to subdue the cancer of communism that is engulfing Russia, Eastern Europe, and even popping up in parts of eastern Germany where the authorities have their hands full.  The Germans are in dire straits, being blamed for the entire war when they were not the ones who started it; no, they came to the aid of their Austro-Hungarian allies and the rest is history as they say.

  31. 1940 Thursday: Acting on intelligence, French law enforcement scoops up almost 40 communists attempting to reform the outlawed communist party.  Most of them would get five years in prison while others would be let go.  Tensions are growing and with threat of a HOT WAR only weeks away, the French want to eliminate internal problems.
  32. 1941 Friday: The Afrika Korps conquers the Fascist Italian, North African port of Benghazi, Libya, driving the British into headlong retreat.  German and Italian motorized columns roll through the streets and jubilant civilians celebrate their arrival.   Elsewhere, as Germans move towards Yugoslavia, Adolf Hitler also approves a plan for the Nazis to aid their fumbling Italian allies and knock Greece out of the fight.
  33. 1942 Saturday: The Luftwaffe launches a major attack on the Soviet naval base at Kronstadt.  Although the German warplanes inflicted damage on 13 vessels, they were unable to sink any of the fleet.
  34. 1944 Tuesday: French General Charles de Gaulle forms a new government with communists among it, preparing to return to Paris when the Allies land on the Continent.  On the Eastern Front, the Germans are launching localized counterattacks with the Fourth Panzer Army which capture the western Ukrainian city of Kovel and throw back the Soviet defenders.
  35. 1945 Wednesday: The Red Army liberates Hungary from the Nazis.  Meanwhile, U.S. forces liberated the Nazi death camp Ohrdruf in Germany.  All roads lead to Berlin right now as the Allies continue forging ahead, wiping out resistance wherever they find it.

  58. 2005 Monday: Palestinians in the West Bank are going berserk today when word has it that Israel is going to begin dumping 10,000 tons of garbage in landfills in the area.  Of course, the Palestinians claim it’s going to foul their water supply and that it’s a breach of international treaties and the like.  We say, ‘shut up, when you stop treating your citizens like garbage, urging them to commit acts of jihad, maybe the Israelis won’t treat YOU like garbage.’  (Note- Moses Scharbug III is responsible for this opinion).  Elsewhere, insurgents in Iraq launch an attack on Abu Ghraib prison to free their jihadist brethren injuring American and Iraqi troops and jailers.  The guards are able to fight the scumbags off.

  62. 2009 Saturday: Costa Rica, Malaysia, and the Philippines find themselves in trouble today.  You ask why?  Well, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development blacklists them for being tax havens where the wealthy can hide their money.  What is wrong with that:  We all want to be able to do that… elsewhere, in North Waziristan, Pakistan, a U.S. drone strike whacks 13 jihadists convening with one another.  Yikes.
  63. 2010 Sunday: In the mine rescue in Shanxi, China, rescuers pull out 114 miners after pulling out the other 39 or so the previous day.  These poor souls have been trapped down there for more than a week, so God bless them for rescuing these poor workers.  Elsewhere, the war in Iraq continues to rage as Islamist thugs set off simultaneous car bombs outside the German, Iranian, and Egyptian embassies.  Many people on the street are killed or injured.
  64. 2011 Monday: Reports claim that China has successfully modified cows to produce ‘human milk’.  People- does this not scare the living f**k out of you?  What the hell is this communist hellhole doing?  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the Israelis have their hands full with the Arab Spring as the Palestinians are causing havoc along the border with Gaza and their country.  Israeli warplanes are crisscrossing Palestinian airspace letting them know that if they step out of line, they are going to light them up.

  67. 2014 Friday:  The 16,480-foot Tungurahua volcano erupts twice; the volcano is located about 90 miles south of Quito in Ecuador.  Elsewhere, in a smart move, the South Korean military test fires some ballistic missiles that they hope with some improvements will be able to hit any target in the territory of their northern neighbor, North Korea.  Meanwhile, in West Africa, the rampaging Ebola epidemic has killed at least 90 people in Guinea and Liberia and now the first case has appeared in Mali.
  68. 2015 Saturday: Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees continue to flood across the Mediterranean with the Italian navy rescuing 1,500 over the past 24 hours.  The only way to halt this insanity is for the Europeans to begin sinking the refugee vessels.  Meanwhile, the United States Army in the Obama era (it would have to be) is probing allegations that its members committed sexual assaults while deployed there between 2003-2007.  Ah, the Bush-Cheney years, that’s Barack Hussein Obama for you.
  69. 2016 Monday: Vietnam says, ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to Chi-Com intrusions into their fishing waters with their ‘fishing fleets’ which in reality, are military operations.  Vietnamese naval and marine assets board this ship and then take it under tow back to one of their ports.  Of course, Beijing starts making all manner of threats.  In the 78th NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship, Villanova defeats North Carolina by a final score of 77-74. 
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Syrian government forces launch a chemical weapons attack on Khan Shaykhun resulting in at least 80 civilian deaths and countless others injured.  President Barack Obama had warned Bashar al-Assad that ‘if he crossed the red line and used chemical weapons, there would be hell to pay.’  No hell to pay until Donald J. Trump became president.  Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Chinese retail giant Alibaba becomes the world’s largest retailer.  You go, China, you go. 
  71. 2018 Wednesday: Since the U.S. Congress won’t act to do something on the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump grasps the bull by the balls and sends the U.S. National Guard to aid struggling Customs and Border Patrol officers attempting to deal with one wave after another of illegal alien invaders.  Of course, the 45th president suffers all manner of criticism for attempting to halt Democrats AND RINO Republicans’ beloved illegal aliens.  Democrats want voters and RINOs like cheap labor.  We say, “Militarize the southern border with minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, anti-boat obstacles, a massive wall, artillery positions, and even seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups.  When the latter grow up, they will patrol the river…
  72. 2019 Thursday: The Church of Latter-Day Saints- aka the Mormon Church- promises to roll back anti-LGBTQIA+ policies which include not baptizing the children of gay parents.  Bowed to pressure, did you?  What a shame.  Meanwhile, the governor of Guam- Lourdes “Lou” Leon Guerrero, Democrat, signs a bill permitting for the recreational use of marijuana.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacres, both New Zealand and Australia pass laws prohibiting the posting of violent content online.  If such content is posted, it must be removed immediately, or the service providers must face the consequences.
  73. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus- straight out of Wuhan, China- continues claiming lives around the world and ruining much of the global economy.  Although Beijing continues to claim that things are ‘looking really great in China,’ everyone knows this is little more than propaganda put forth by their state-run media.  Shame on them.  Current figures for today are more than one million confirmed cases what with more than 64,000 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 312,076 confirmed U.S. cases and 8,496 confirmed deaths.  When this crisis ends, the world will hold the communist government of China accountable and as Chef Goldie McNamara has said, President Donald J. Trump should demand a return to the Two-China Policy of recognizing the equality of Nationalist aka Free China as a separate entity from the People’s Republic of (Communist China).
  74. 2021 Sunday: WOKE NEWS– first, permit us to say this- it is time that people stand up and slap the WOKE pansies in the mouth and say, “Hell, no, we are not going to permit a bunch of wimpified losers such as yourselves to tell us what we can and cannot say.  Furthermore, IF you want to know where WOKE stupidity came from, it emanates from 1-2 generations of young people NEVER being told ‘NO,’ or given ‘participation trophies’ or even more importantly, a belt across their sniveling, cringing asses when they were growing up.  If ever one needed an example of what happens when you spare the rod and spoil the child, this is precisely what timidity in parenting gets one.’  Okay, top GOP lawmakers say that Major League Baseball should lose its antitrust exemption over pulling the MLB All-Star Game and MLB Draft out of Georgia[vii] over the recent enactment of new voting laws.  READ the law first before you run with the WOKE HERD.  Speaking of ‘WOKE,’ President Donald J. Trump says that all Americans should boycott any business or industry pushing this ignorant WOKE agenda.  God bless you, sir.  In other WOKE news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, condemns Coca-Cola’s® opposition to the new election laws in the Peach State.  NO MORE Coca-Cola® for us, folks.  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he wishes ‘everyone an incredibly happy Easter, including all the left-wing crazies’ out there running amok.
  75. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Pakistan is struggling to stop its citizens from smuggling in oil from Iran.  Every now and then, someone makes a mistake and blows everyone sky high from tapping into pipelines or tanker trucks.  Next, the crown prince of Jordan is reportedly in home detention following the plotting of a coup against his half-brother King Abdullah.  Moving on, the final ships trapped in the Suez Canal are on their way to the high seas and freedom.   Finally, Indonesia is suffering from some serious natural disasters what with landslides after heavy rains carrying away homes, businesses, and even people.  Reportedly, at least 44 citizens are dead, numerous others missing, and thousands evacuated.  We’re with you!  Finally, recent Russian polls claim that ‘Vladimir Putin is the sexiest Russian male alive.’  Congrats, Comrade Vlad!
  76. 2021 Sunday B: POLITICAL NEWS NATIONAL– Report- at least three Democrats refuse to take campaign donations from dingdong ultra-leftist lunatic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, and some who have accepted money from her campaign coffers returned them.[viii]  This dingbat’s star is already waning.  Meanwhile, frontrunner in the race to replace dimwit New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- Andrew Yang- has left the hospital after being treated for kidney stones.
  77. 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE / JOE BIDEN NEWS– Border Democrats are looking to feeble old Joe Biden to do something quick about the border.  Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says, ‘not only is the border crisis a humanitarian crisis, it’s also a national security crisis because we have no clue who is coming across it.’  Something must be done and soon to stop the tidal wave of diseased, low-skilled, low-IQ illegals swamping across it.   Meanwhile, government officials in the Lone Star State float the idea of using Joe Biden’s PORKULUS money to continue construction on the southern border wall.  Like Hadrian’s Wall in Roman Britain, the wall is the only thing between civilization and 1,000 years of darkness.  Speaking of Texas, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that ‘if the Biden administration would pull back on welfare given to illegal aliens who have no business being in our country, which would stop many of them from coming (just as would a few thousand dollars spent on lead- Stinkbug).
  78. 2021 Sunday D: 2020 STOLEN/FRAUDULENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION– as if we needed more proof that the 2020 Presidential Election was corrupt and stolen on behalf of drooling, enfeebled Joe Biden, Maricopa County officials in the Copper State WILL NOT permit Arizona investigators to recount the 2.1 million ballots by hand, a job estimated to take up to two months at 18 hours per day.  IF everything was on the up and up as Democrats claim it was, then help the investigators instead of trying to thwart them and cover up your tracks.
  79. 2021 Sunday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– After more than two months in office, doddering old slobbering old Joe Biden finally picks up the phone and calls (his partner in crime) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Good for you, Joe, good for you, Joe.  Next Climate Czar, the hypocritical John F. Kerry is focusing on efforts to bring the United States and the Chi-Coms together on environmental issues.  This we would love to see…Next, after one of their own- Nation of Islam’s Noah Green- crashed into a barricade outside the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue and killed one officer and injured another before being shot dead himself, Democrats on Capitol Hill are back to finding ways to secure Fort Pelosi.  Isn’t it amazing how stuff just ‘seems to occur’ that allows the Dems to rob the American people of their rights?  Elsewhere, Native Americans in Minnesota are on the warpath as they try to stop a Canadian energy project running through their state.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– GOP lawmakers in Kansas within hours of Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, slapping a mask mandate on the people of her state, they knocked it down and out so the people of Kansas can go about their lives in a normal manner.  Excellent!  Elsewhere, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, declares a state of emergency in three counties near Tampa due to possible flooding.  Meanwhile, Seattle activists propose a new initiative which would end homelessness and homeless encampments of which, they are the national capital, and would fund housing for those affected by the new proposal.   Moving on, Congressman Madison Cawthorn, R-NC 11th congressional district, calls out demands for increased gun control as well as the politization of the U.S. military and says that Dems’ cries for ‘common sense gun laws’ means the disarmament of the American people.  God bless you, son.  
  81. 2021 Sunday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com multi-billionaire is looking to buy the NFL franchise Los Angeles Chargers, valued at $2.6 billion due to massive amounts of debt.  Jeff- send them back to San Diego.  Next, Tesla is doing battle with labor unions and recent Labor Board rulings.  Good luck.  Moving on, the U.S. hits a milestone dishing out 3 million Chi-Vi vaccines per day.  This follows on the news of large numbers of the unusable Johnson & Johnson vaccines going bad.  What is up with that company?  Meanwhile, in New York City, Broadway is finally set to reopen.  About time.   Elsewhere, signs of life returning to normal continue to arise as the TSA announces that in a single day, it screened 1.5 million airline passengers.  Finally, NFL great Tom Brady’s rookie card sold for $2.25 million.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Robbie Robertson was a ‘best of’ compilation for his most ardent fans, “Classic Masters,” an album that came out on August 13, 2002.  The album featured a collection of tunes culled from his first two solo albums upon leaving the Band, the group that gave him fame and fortune, the group that he would leave behind and move on from due to it rapidly spiraling out of control.  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

2021 Thursday A: The hits continue coming for flailing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.

  63. 2018 Sunday: The government of Communist China- the National Peoples’ Congress- declares an end to term limits thus making dictator Xi Jinping ‘president for life.’  He is the new Mao Zedong.  This will put the dictator on a path to defy the West and terrorize the world.  In two years, a pandemic from one of his biowarfare labs will be terrorizing the world.
  64. 2019 Monday: Israeli President Reuven Rivlin- a thorn in the side to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refutes the PM’s claim that “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people- and only it.”   Meanwhile, the Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, age 82, changes his mind on seeking a fifth term and postpones the upcoming elections after citizens of his country go berserk in the streets.   Elsewhere, the blackout in Venezuela continues into yet another day.  The Maduro regime continues blaming the U.S. and Juan Guiado instead of acknowledging the blame rests entirely upon the regime’s ineptitude and its criminality.   Democratic-Socialists in the United States would love for the United States to resemble that once-prosperous and now-collapsing South American country.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Fallout from the spread of the COVID-19 aka Coronavirus around the globe causes the NBA to suspend the rest of the season including the playoffs and all sorts of entertainment and sporting events to shutter their doors.  President Donald J. Trump goes before the American people and gives a stately Oval Office address in which, he reassures the citizens of the country that the government at all levels is doing everything possible to protect them.  He suspends all flights from Continental Europe for 30 days as the United States continues finding ways to minimize our exposure.  Many believe it is time the Chinese stand up and admit what everyone knows them to have done and that is- following the U.S.-China trade deal- the release of the coronavirus around the world.  Sadly, Tom Hanks and his wife admit that while filming a movie on Elvis Presley in Australia- in Australia!- the pair caught the coronavirus.  Wow.  Finally, when many thought that Bernie Sanders was going to throw in the towel on his campaign, he goes before the mics and proclaims he is going to fight all the way to Milwaukee.  Double wow.
  66. 2021 Thursday: Day 51 of the Biden Regime, how much more can the United States take of this senile president and his unseen handlers?  We expect they are in league with the Chi-Coms and as such are actively selling out the country. Tonight, is the night, folks: “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is going to deliver a 20-minute address to the American people.  The ‘president’ is going to level with us, tell us what we must continue doing if we are going to lick this virus.  We are curious if he will be able to deliver a 20-minute address.  We don’t believe he can so here’s what we think: we believe if we watch closely, the speech is going to feature various takes spliced together to give the IMPRESSION he is delivering an address.  It’s also possible it could be a DEEP FAKE.  We will be watching this ‘address’ closely to see just how fake it is.  We know Democrats will be wetting their underwear in anticipation of “Pro-China Joe.”   Anyhow, Joe is going to promote ‘vigilance’ and ‘hope.’  What a guy!
  67. 2021 Thursday A: The hits continue coming for flailing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.[v]  You know you’re a scumbag when a reprobate such as New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says, ‘Cuomo can no longer serve.’  He joins the massive chorus demanding the mortally wounded Empire State governor to step down and go home in shame.  It appears citizens of the state are more upset with Cuomo groping women than they are the 20,000 or so deaths HIS policies caused in nursing homes what with seeding COVID-19 patients among the elderly and disabled.  Still, ‘how sweet it is,’ said Jackie Gleason’s character on “The Honeymooners.”  Vamanos, Governor Cuomo!   Speaking of Bill Di Blasio, Andrew Yang is leading the polls in the mayoral race.  Billy Di Blasio may be joining Governor “Killer Cuomo” in exile. 
  68. 2021 Thursday B: The Senate is having a challenging time moving along the nomination of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to become the next head of Health and Human Services.  The only medical experience AG Becerra has is that he never saw an abortion he did not like nor an excuse to deliver taxpayer dollars to the Pro-Death Movement, aka Planned Parenthood.  Speaking of Planned Parenthood, the international ‘baby chop shop,’ (don’t take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, folks), a judge ruled that Texas can remove Margaret Sanger’s organization from its list of Medicaid providers.  Excellent.  UPDATE- despite opposition, the Senate voted to move the nomination to the floor late this afternoon.  S**t!
  69. 2021 Thursday C: The House Democrats have passed two sweeping gun control measures, bills that require extended background checks and longer waiting periods before one can purchase a firearm, ammunition, and accessories.  Neither of these bills do anything to halt criminals and thugs from obtaining firearms but as far as legal owners go, the Democrats want to take our guns.  As we have said here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM on multiple occasions, we are recommending the stashing of firearms or their transfer to family members and theirs back to you so when the cops come pounding on the door with a leering moron like Beto O’Rourke outside demanding you hand them over, you can tell them, “MY GUNS WERE STOLEN.  I WAS JUST GETTING READY TO REPORT IT.”  Imagine if millions of gun owners do this; it’s the same concept of EVERYONE across the country reopening their businesses at the same time on the same day.  If everyone supports everyone else, government cannot crush us, nor can they take away our business licenses.   It is time for the American people to remind government at all levels who exactly is in charge…it ain’t them!
  70. 2021 Thursday D: Meanwhile, California Senator Dianne Feinstein and Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline, 1st congressional district, introduced a bill today that will allow government to strip away ownership of AR-15 rifles and similar weapons.  Gun-grabbing Democrats never rest which is why the National Rifle Association and various state pistol and rifle associations never rest either.   We urge everyone to obtain a lifetime membership with the NRA, a lifetime membership with the California Rifle and Pistol Association,  the same with the Hawaii Rifle Association, likewise with the Washington State Rifle and Pistol Association, and the same in every other state in the union.  We must defend our God-given rights of gun ownership. 
  71. 2021 Thursday E: As California Governor Gavin “Silver Spoon” Newsom continues floundering like his opposite in New York, things are suddenly beginning to reopen including state attractions such as Alcatraz Island and its penitentiary.  Flailing governors will do anything to save their souls.  Sadly, for Governor Newsom, the effort to recall him has 1.8 verified signatures, well over the 1.5 million to get him on a recall ballot.  We hope to boot this sissified POS out of office as quickly as possible. 
  72. 2021 Thursday F: The federal government reports 712,000 new claims for jobless benefits which is lower than anticipated.  However, 4.5 million of our fellow Americans are still drawing benefits.  In other business news, Rolls Royce- no longer a manufacturer of fine automobiles but of aircraft engines- announces a loss in 2020 of $5.6 billion.   Meanwhile, Parler has been denied yet again a return to the Apple store of apps.  What is up with that? 
  73. 2021 Thursday G: The ‘Biden EPA’ is going to reconsider Trump era rules on lead in drinking water.  In other ‘Biden administration’ news, reports are that there are 3,200 illegal alien minors and brats stuffed into the same kinds of animal pens as they were during the Obama-Biden administration, the very same hellholes of rape, murder, and torture they tried to pass off onto Donald J. Trump.  We think it’s more humane to load them aboard trains, buses, semi-trucks, even sidelined aircraft and send them back to ONE point and ONE point ONLY: to Honduras.  Seeing as how this is where the caravans commence forming, we should send them back and dump them out.  At the same time, we must continue securing the borders, laying in minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicle obstacles and pits, foo gas pits, and everything else we can to stop the tidal wave of humanity that will never assimilate.  Of course, if the ‘Biden administration’ wants to give us $5,000 per month to take in an illegal alien brat and to pay for their keep, many Americans will be glad to do that, especially members of NAMBLA.  It is what it is…[vi]
  74. 2021 Thursday H: In the joke of the day, shock jock newsman Geraldo Rivera says he is considering a run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Ohio Senator Rob Portman next year.  Wow.  Go for it ‘Mustache!’  Next, Britney Spears’ dad’s team blasts Congressmen Matt Gaetz, R-FL, and Jim Jordan, R-OH, blasting them on their crazy conservatorship of the popular pop icon.  They pointed out yesterday that conservatorships such as the one Britney’s dad has her detained under is wrong and must be stopped.  It’s unfair to those who are capable of running their own lives.  We tend to agree.  Let Britney go!   In other interesting news, the governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves, signs a bill into law today that defends girls’ and women’s sports from Trannys.  We believe there should be a THIRD league of scholastic and collegiate sports (and perhaps even at the Olympics level) of tranny sports.  Let the Trannys play sports with one another, let boys and men compete against one another and the same for girls and women.  Enough is enough, stop coddling people with mental issues.  Help them instead. 
  75. 2021 Thursday I: Texas Governor Greg Abbot is sending 500 Texas National Guardsmen to the southern border to help defend it from the tidal wave of illegal aliens a feeble Joe Biden invited to come here.  Again, we say, “Defend the border using whatever tools and weapons of war necessary.”  No other nation would ever permit outrageous behavior such as this to continue unimpeded.  In other distressing news, the head of the Indo-Pacific command of the U.S. military laments the fact that the Chi-Coms are cleaning our clocks in the size of our militaries.  We have problems, folks, the Chi-Coms NEVER fight foreign wars while the U.S.- except under President Donald J. Trump- fights wars all over the place and is again.  This is among the quickest ways to reduce the effectiveness of our military.  Just ask the Roman Empire.
  76. 2021 Thursday J: President Donald J. Trump says former NFL great Hershel Walker would make a great U.S. senator from Georgia.  Watch out, Reverend Raphael Warnock (how can a man of the cloth serve both God and Karl Marx at the same time?).  We think Walker would make a GREAT senator!  Meanwhile, retired NFL player Jack Brewer tells Newsmax that ‘the City of San Francisco spends roughly $61,000 per year on each tent on public property within the fecal-rich city by the bay.’  This is frigging crazy!  You could buy every homeless person a tiny house and pay their utilities. 
  77. 2021 Thursday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 118,119,333 confirmed cases, +354,714, 2,621,944, confirmed deaths, +8,197, and 66,926,960 confirmed recoveries, +189,463.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,465,761 confirmed cases, up 62,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 534,746 confirmed deaths, UP 1,627, and 115,014,297 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 206,269 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  78. 2021 Thursday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,611,884 confirmed cases, 54,961 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,892 confirmed cases, 448 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 349,900 confirmed cases, 5,159 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- South Dakota, aka the Mt. Rushmore State: currently, they have 114,163 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 812,823 confirmed cases, 5,955 confirmed deaths, and 768,713 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Ukraine, the place where Vladimir Putin is waging a war of re-conquest: 1,425,522 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 27,685 confirmed deaths, and 1,210,246 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 67,729,348 confirmed cases, 3,598,303 confirmed deaths, and 65,738,140 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  
  79. 2021 Thursday M: Norway and Denmark have stopped inoculating their citizens with the AstraZeneca vaccine seeing as how 22 cases of blood clots turned up in their citizens.  They are launching a two-week investigation of what the heck is up.  Meanwhile, a young mother in Utah dies four days following the second injection of the Bat Virus vaccine.  Medical authorities are investigating that death.  Across the country and around the world, stories of mysterious illnesses and deaths related to the vaccines are popping up, here and there.  We are in a wait and see mode, not having any desire to rush out and get vaccinated for this crap disease.  We believe the gulf between DYING OF THE ‘VID or WITH THE ‘VID is wide.  If government wasn’t using the Chi-Com Virus as a club with which to beat us, we might actually know the truth but until honest leaders step up and share the truth with us, we will remain suspicious of the whole charade.   In other China Virus-related news, 8-in-10 American parents want schools reopened for in-person classes- so says a recent poll by Gallup.   The AP reports that Joe Biden is ‘in the wrong place on vaccinations.’  Likewise, an AP-NORC poll says that ‘1-in-5 Americans lost someone to the Chi-Com bat flu. 
  80. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 Relief Bill’, aka the PORKULUS into law.  As soon as he did, he scurried out of view of reporters.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,485.59, UP 188.57 points (+0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,398.67, UP 329.841 points (+2.52%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,939.34, UP 40.53 points (+1.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,720.10 per troy oz., -2.50 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $26.17 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,200.00 per troy oz, -2.30 (-0.19%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (+0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,341.60 per troy oz, +48.40 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.97 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.08%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.59.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Algerian Dinar, one greenback equals 132.71.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.783 per gallon, $3.534 in Hawaii, and $3.219 in Washington state.  That’s Old Joe destroying our oil and petroleum industries.  Scumbag.  Meanwhile, with Old Joe signing the bill, we have committed more than $5 trillion in ‘relief’ funds in ONE year.  Sounds like Cloward and Piven strategy is going to destroy the United States.   Time to move to Russia. 
  81. 2021 Thursday O: Vice President Kamala Harris administered the oath of office to new U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland.   This guy is a loser.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Attorney General Monty Wilkinson stepped down on this date.  (Wilkinson served from January 20, 2021, until today).  Elsewhere, sources say that Sackler has boosted its opioid settlement up to $4.3 billion.   Next, Trump adviser Jason Miller say ‘woe to anyone in the RNC who goes against Trump-endorsed candidates.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Congressman Madison Cawthorn, R-NC 11th congressional district, says a ‘weaponized Department of Justice and FBI could block all firearm sales.’  Time for patriots to answer the clarion call.   Elsewhere, Politico reports that within the $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 Relief Bill,’ there’s a $60 billion tax hike for all U.S. citizens.  Finally, for the U.S. to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, we must slash emissions by 57-percent.  Hell, it might be time to move to Chi-Com China.  They don’t worry about this crap.
  82. 2021 Thursday P: CNN and MSNBC’s ratings are in the crapper.  Fox still ranks high with Newsmax and One America News not far behind.  This, of course, is among Republican viewers but still, Fox is thrashing about trying to discover some way by which it can reclaim millions of lost viewers but folks, other than Tucker Carlson and Mark Levin, many people say, “F**k them.”  They made their own bed, let them lie in it.   In other news, Mexico is legalizing recreational marijuana.  Good for them…
  83. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its second ‘best of’ compilation, “Anthology,” on March 21, 1978.  The group had split due to inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having had massive success and then a subsequent decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said, ‘it’s time to release another compilation,’ this one a double-header, so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY MARCH 11, 2022, BLOG POST #4,482

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

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…


Friday, March 11, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of New York City’s very own Vanilla Fudge, beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  You definitely will want to check them out so please, do so now.  At the time, we overlooked the music of Cactus which we hope to promote one of these days.  Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the Nice at some point soon.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.  Thank you.

[v] Here’s a fascinating aside that no one is discussing: all of Cuomo’s accusers are WHITE.  Does this say something about Cuomo also being a RACIST besides being a GROPER?  It’s not like women of color are nonexistent in New York or in New York government so why is no one lambasting Cuomo for not groping women of color like say, Leticia James?  We wonder how that would have gone…

[vi] Just joking about NAMBLA so stop wetting your drawers.   However, we don’t see how it’s HUMANE to have women and children marching to our borders where they are being raped, beaten, mistreated, and most likely scarred for life.  This is NOT humane and it’s clear to everyone Democrats possess ZERO humanity as if they did, they would stop this outrageous activity along our border.  President Trump, come back, please!

ELECTION DAY IS COMING AND IT’S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

  71. 2017 Tuesday: Following a devastating storm in the Mediterranean, Malta’s famous landmark, the Azure Window, topples into the sea, much to the horror of the island’s citizens.  Elsewhere, as the migrant crisis in Europe continues to worsen, the National Assembly of Hungary votes to intern ALL migrants entering their country.

  74. 2020 Saturday: The Chi-Com Bat Flu continues spreading around the world, affecting nations in the Mediterranean, in Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, across the Middle East, into Western Europe and Latin America.  In Japan, the authorities are arresting people for breaking their quarantines while in South America, the disease is popping up there.  The World Health Organization is slow to react because they are covering up for their masters in Beijing.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Members of the Biden administration visit the southern border to view (we believe to welcome in) illegal aliens swarming the border like a scene from the movie “World War Z,” (2013) a scene in which zombies are swarming up a wall in Israel. 
  76. 2021 Sunday A: As the ‘Biden administration’ continues bringing the U.S. into a Middle Eastern war, B-52s are flying across the Persian Gulf to strike fear into the hearts of Iranians.  Why we are flying B-52s is beyond us as far too many were shot down in the Vietnam War.  Here we are a half-century later flying the same aircraft, designed in the 1950s, while air defenses of all weaponry have become ‘smart.’  If the B-52s were to go into action over Iran, they would be easy pickings.   Joe- don’t get the U.S. into a war to defend gay rights and women’s rights in nations that will never respect them.   Speaking of the military, the Pentagon is reviewing a request to keep National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., for another TWO months.
  77. 2021 Sunday B: President Donald J. Trump announces he is going to go to Alaska so he can campaign against RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski.  We would love to see former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin primary Senator Murkowski.[x]   Speaking of President Trump, he lambastes various RINO Republican entities for misusing his brand in fund-raising efforts, especially when they continue supporting RINOs who voted for his impeachment.  He demands they cease and desist.  That means the Republican House and Senate Committees and we believe the Republican National Committee, too.  Until the GOP comes to grips with its RINO problems, no one is going to send another dime to any GOP PAC or Super Pac.  F**k them.
  78. 2021 Sunday C: In the U.S. Senate, the Republicans tried to block COVID-19 relief checks going to illegal aliens and other foreign citizens- as well as to people doing time in the hoosegow- but the Democrats blocked the GOP.   With the absence of Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, Republican, away on family business, the Dems passed the COVID-19 ‘Relief Bill’ by a vote of 50-49.  We learn that at least 17 million Americans are ineligible to receive benefits while river-swimming illegals and the incarcerated will receive checks.  F**k them.   RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says Joe Biden should concentrate on reopening schools rather than sending checks to people who don’t deserve them.
  79. 2021 Sunday D: In New York, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s woes continue to worsen what with two more women coming out and pointing the fingers of doom at this POS who thinks his fecal matter doesn’t stink.  The Albany Times says NOT only should “Killer Cuomo” go but the enablers who helped him get away with incalculable #MeToo crimes.[xi]   Speaking of Cuomo, the New York legislature has stripped the bum of his emergency rights.  NO more acting like a dictator.  We hope to see his brother, Chris the Pris, face his own #MeToo troubles what with his exceptionally close relationship with fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon, both of whom are reputed gropers.   Speaking of the Empire State, Donald Trump is planning his first visit to the Big Apple since leaving office.
  80. 2021 Sunday E:  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says the ‘Democratic agenda is the reshaping of America.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, a massive global hack breaches Microsoft business accounts.   Speaking of hacks, pressure applied by President Donald J. Trump and the U.S. has caused Huawei to lose loads of money outside the People’s Republic of China.  In other news, a Michigan state judge reinstates voting fraud cases with the state’s borders following a forensic probe of the corrupt Dominion Voting Systems equipment used in the state’s 2020 Presidential Election.  Ample evidence exists of the machines flipping votes for Donald Trump to Methuselah Biden.   Finally, the Tennessee legislature is proposing a bill that will allow the state to crack down on violent highway protesters, people who blocks roads and highways as well as stiffening the rights of citizens to defend their lives and property. 
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Governor Greg Abbot and the state of Texas is launching Operation Lone Star with which to fund, employ National Guard troops, and law enforcement officers in land, sea, and air operations to halt the tidal wave of illegal aliens trying to force their way into the country.  All power to Texas!  Let’s revive Operation Wetback and begin rounding up and removing illegal aliens everywhere we find them.  Meanwhile, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz blasts the Biden administration for holding NO press conferences and notes that it appears as though we are moving towards a “Harris administration.”  Amen.  Speaking of the Republican Party, it’s speaking out against the cancelation of news media outlets on the right by the left and Cancel Culture.
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,600,908 confirmed cases, +431,789, 2,589,638, confirmed deaths, +7,563, and 65,920,692 confirmed recoveries, +225,672.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,258,941 confirmed cases, up 65,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 529,527 confirmed deaths, UP 1,610, and 112,291,045 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 201,050 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   Note- that stupid bi**h Jen “Circle Back” Psaki won’t credit President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,596,488 confirmed cases, 54,124 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 444 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,301 confirmed cases, 5,107 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Idaho: currently, they have 173,011 confirmed cases, 1,882 confirmed deaths, and 96,017 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 799,727 confirmed cases, 5,856 confirmed deaths, and 753,081 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Com lab-engineered biowarfare, anti-Trump Xi Jinping Bat Virus, AstraZeneca says that it’s planning to deliver roughly 50 million doses of the Chi-Vi Vax to Americans within the next two months.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Switzerland votes to ban face coverings in public.  Meanwhile, authorities report that the Russians have launched a disinformation campaign on the efficacy and safety of U.S. Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  F**k the Russians.  Elsewhere, a Uighur Muslim human rights group demands the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics be stripped from the Chi-Com regional power over their persecution of Uighurs and other minorities in the western portion of that backward country.  Finally, the U.S. and South Korea are preparing to hold limited military exercises beginning tomorrow and which will run for nine days.  North Korea promises to closely monitor them.  How about we END the Korean War?  What a novel idea!
  85. 2021 Sunday J: Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, blasts the Biden PORKULUS Relief Bill as nothing more than a ‘liberal wish list.’  Meanwhile, Representative Mike Gallagher, R-WI, is demanding that Joe Biden reconsider shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline.  It’s time to open that sucker back up so Americans can enjoy cheap energy prices.  In other news, economist Stephen Moore says a good jobs report can get the U.S. economy going up like a rocket ship.  Next, Trump era student loan debt czar Mark A. Brown hands his resignation letter over to the Biden administration.    Finally, Newsmax asks an important question: is “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell planning to exit the world’s greatest deliberative body?  Probably going to relocate to the PRC so he can help his father-in-law run his shipping company.
  86. 2022 Monday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its first ‘best of’ compilation, “The Best of the Band,” on July 15, 1976.  The group was having inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having massive success and then a decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said ‘it’s time to release a compilation’ so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands. 

[vi] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[vii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[ix] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] One of the reasons (among many) President Trump wants to end the service of Senator Murkowski is her support for Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the Department of the Interior, a person who will cripple the 49th state’s energy and mineral production.  It’s time for Murkowski to go.

[xi] The amazing thing is NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio smells chum in the water and is planning on launching a primary campaign to strip “Killer Cuomo” of the governorship and winning it for himself.  That is pretty bad when a loser like Di Blasio is in better shape than a boner like Cuomo.  Going to be fun to watch.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: Things continue going from bad to worse for the decrepit old House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as Burgess Owens, Republican, wins a U.S. House seat in Utah’s 4th District, flipping it from BLUE to RED with his victory over incumbent Congressman Ben McAdams, a Democrat.   As GOP victories continue to pile up, it is becoming extremely clear that whatever ‘majority’ the Democrats enjoy in the House will be impotent, powerless, and pathetic.  The blame rests entirely on the sagging shoulders of Speaker Pelosi.  Democrats colluding with Canada and communist China did not bring them the expected victories they guaranteed.   Speaking of the 2020 Elections, things are beginning to go against the Democrats in Nevada as judges step in and additional votes show strong support for President Donald J. Trump and the GOP.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: NATO warns the organization that withdrawal from Afghanistan could pose heightened dangers for the West.  Leaving troops there another 10 years is not going to make things any better.  President Trump is trying to speed up the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the crap-hole country.  Meanwhile, late last night, the SpaceX Dragon crew capsule docked with the International Space Station- congratulations, SpaceX!  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate grills Mutt and Jeff- Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey- over their ongoing attempts to censor things they don’t like including President Donald J. 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, but it is also 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.
  59. 2020 Tuesday B: Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1608 with a $135 million jackpot on the line- stay tuned for the numbers.  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.
  60. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 55,333,374 confirmed cases, UP by 655,215 cases, 1,332,390 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,987 deaths, and 35,613,120 confirmed recoveries, UP by 514,614 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,395,550 confirmed cases, UP by 195,059 new cases, 251,551 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,548 new deaths, and 6,040,795 confirmed recoveries, UP by 83,160 new recoveries.
  61. 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.
  62. 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.
  63. 2021 Wednesday: Stick around and join us for whatever is occurring today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention is a ‘blast from the past,’ “Heyday,’ a live album of sorts culled from the archives and released on April 17, 1987.  The album features a collection of tunes recorded a decade-and-a-half or so ago for the John Peel’s Top Gear Show.  The band consists of Ashley Hutchings (bass), Simon Nichol (guitars), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals), Sandy Denny (vocals), Martin Lamble and Dave Mattacks (drums), Dave Swarbrick and Ric Grech (violins), and one or two others to round out the sound.  As you haven’t added enough music to your nonstop, never-ending growing collection, there’s always one more addition which is why we encourage everyone to visit their favorite haunt for the absolute best in music and pick it up- you will be so glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this legendary singer-songwriter.  Gordon Lightfoot will remain one of the all-time greatest songwriters of all time.

[ii] Please see: Shaw, John (and the Editors of Time-Life Books).  “Red Army Resurgent.”  1979.  Time-Life Books, Chicago, Illinois, p. 177.

[iii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iv] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of this long-lived band but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[v] We are somewhat surprised in 2020 that this wimpy POS did not pull an “Arlen Specter,” a Republican senator who flipped from the GOP to Democrat during the first term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  Pig. Sadly, Specter became an outcast like General Benedict Arnold, and no one had any respect for him.

[vi] See previous.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, GIVE JOE A CHANCE!

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…

Rand Paul, R-KY, Florida Lt.Gov. Jeanette Nunez, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, anti-abortion advocate Abby Johnson, Maine Lobsterman Jason Joyce, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, Mary Ann Mendoza, a mother who lost her son to an illegal drunken driver, Nicolas Sandman, the kid vilified by the press for supposedly being ‘disrespectful to a Native American elder who turned out to be a fraud, as well as other surprise guests.  Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics says “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads President Donald J.

  62. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,248.44, DOWN 60.02 points (-0.21%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,466.47, UP 86.75 points (+0.76%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,443.62, UP 12.34 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,935.00 per troy oz., +11.90 (+0.62%) while the price of SILVER is $26.55 per troy ounce, +0.277 (+1.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $937.40 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $2.94 per pound, +0.006 (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $43.43 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.18%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.91 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.

  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.
  54. 2009 Saturday: In Chad, Chadian forces defeat a large column of advancing rebel forces.  Meanwhile, Pakistani troops in Swat have a good day killing terrorists by notching up a total of 55 dead and numerous others injured and driven into retreat.
  55. 2010 Sunday: Somali pirates take to the high seas once again and capture a German oil tanker plying the waters off East Africa.  Seems like it’s getting about time to go in there and crucify these scumbags the way Caesar did pirates in the Mediterranean when he was a young man.  How about the modern equivalent?  Let’s use neutron bombs on these bastards.
  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.
  57. 2012 Wednesday: After reaching a political compromise that ends her hunger strike, prison officials move Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Timoshenko to a hospital for monitoring.  Elsewhere, President Barack Hussein Obama[v] officially states his support for same-sex marriage—he ‘evolved.’
  58. 2013 Thursday: A report reveals that hackers using fraudulent ATM cards in February 2013 stole $45 million from across the globe.  Elsewhere, on the Indonesian island of Java, law enforcement thwarts a plot in which terrorists were planning on blowing up the Sri Lankan embassy killing at least seven of the scumbags.
  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.
  60. 2015 Saturday: After a period of 42 days with NO new Ebola cases, which is twice the normal quarantine rate, the UN Health Organization declares the outbreak of the dreaded virus in the African nation of Liberia to be at an end.  During the outbreak, about 4,700 people died from the horrendous disease.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans claim to have successfully test-fired a missile from a submarine.
  61. 2016 Monday: London Mayor Boris Johnson resigns from office and Muslim Sadiq Khan takes his place, becoming the first Muslim mayor of a major Western city.   Elsewhere, in Baquba, Iraq, a ISIS car bombing claims the lives of 50 poor souls while injuring another 54 or so.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Animals. 
  62. 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.
  63. 2018 Wednesday: According to On This Day, the Supreme Court of India has some major criticism for the government department responsible for archaeological preservation because they did little to nothing to prevent the discoloration of the iconic Taj Mahal- the only ‘wonder’ left of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’- as well as the build-up of green slime in the historic site.  Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Iranian people go ballistic after President Trump declares the U.S. is pulling out of the multinational nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration.  Screw ‘em!
  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Badfinger was “Wish You Were Here,” which came out on November 15, 1974 and is considered by many to be among the band’s best works.  The lineup featured the same quartet- Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals)- and had there not been troubles between Warner Bros. and the band’s publishing company, it might have had an opportunity to shine.  However, after several weeks on the shelves of record stores, the legal squabbles caused the management at Warner Bros. to yank it from sale.  Lucky people would be able to find it and then years later, expanded versions would become available and would become extremely popular with fans.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good shot at becoming a regular portion of your song lists.  Check it out.

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.

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.

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this legendary singer-songwriter.  Gordon Lightfoot will remain one of the all-time greatest songwriters of all time.

[ii] Please see: Shaw, John (and the Editors of Time-Life Books).  “Red Army Resurgent.”  1979.  Time-Life Books, Chicago, Illinois, p. 177.

[iii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iv] We are somewhat surprised in 2020 that this wimpy POS did not pull an “Arlen Specter,” a Republican senator who flipped from the GOP to Democrat during the first term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  Pig. Sadly, Specter became an outcast like General Benedict Arnold and no one had any respect for him.

Rand Paul, R-KY, Florida Lt.Gov. Jeanette Nunez, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, anti-abortion advocate Abby Johnson, Maine Lobsterman Jason Joyce, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, Mary Ann Mendoza, a mother who lost her son to an illegal drunken driver, Nicolas Sandman, the kid vilified by the press for supposedly being ‘disrespectful to a Native American elder who turned out to be a fraud, as well as other surprise guests.  Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics says “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads President Donald J. Trump by 52-percent to 42.4-percent.  Uh, okay.
  61. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,694,646 confirmed cases, UP by 269,802 cases, 814,354 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,638 deaths, and 15,381,104 confirmed recoveries, UP by 230,337 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,850,278 confirmed cases, UP by 56,817 new cases, 180,375 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,046 new deaths, and 2,980,604 confirmed recoveries, UP by 33,332 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
  62. 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 673,095 confirmed cases, 12,257 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,769 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,172 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,456 confirmed cases, 1,872 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, the Empire State: 430,774 confirmed number of cases, 32,864 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you putrid piece of culvert muck, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  63. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,248.44, DOWN 60.02 points (-0.21%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,466.47, UP 86.75 points (+0.76%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,443.62, UP 12.34 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,935.00 per troy oz., +11.90 (+0.62%) while the price of SILVER is $26.55 per troy ounce, +0.277 (+1.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $937.40 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $2.94 per pound, +0.006 (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $43.43 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.18%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.91 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Electric Light Orchestra released their fourth, albeit a limited live release, “The Night the Light went on in Long Beach,” on May 10, 1974.   Back in the day, the Light was one of the best live bands on the face of the earth.  They could cook, they could rock, and wild they were, much like their predecessor band, the Move.  The band featured  Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Mike du Albuquerque (bass, backing vocals), Mike Edwards (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), Ted Blight and Hugh McDowell (cello).  This album features some of the best material and eventually would be re-released several decades later.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will enjoy it.  The only sad thing here is that the version of “Roll Over Beethoven” is not all that long.  Sad.
