RR. 1993 Saturday: The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled that people who commit so-called ‘hate crimes’ ‘could be sentenced to extra punishment.’ The Court also ruled in favor of nutty religious groups saying that ‘they indeed had a constitutional right to sacrifice animals during worship services.’ The question is, if the nuts want to sacrifice human beings—who technically are animals, too, is that okay?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 07, 1977, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released their second official ‘best of package,’ “Repeat the Best of Jethro Tull, Volume II” which featured slim pickings of 10 tracks not included on their first ‘best of’ package including an unreleased track with which to sweeten the deal for the fans.   If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull,” and “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL

  55. 2018 Saturday: Justify, ridden by Mike Smith and trained by Bob Baffert, won the Belmont Stakes to become horse racing’s 13th Triple Crown winner and the second in the past four years.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In Hong Kong, one of the largest anti-Beijing protests breaks out as more than 1 million people take to the streets to protest the new extradition law demanded by the communist government by which, people accused of crimes in the former British colony once arrested would be sent to the mainland for trial.  God bless them!  Meanwhile, in the capital of Sudan- Khartoum- anti-government protests against the ruling military junta breakout as hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets in that Islamist country.
  57. 2020 Tuesday: The Xi Jinping Bat Flu Virus continues racking up numbers as it plows along, methodically causing trouble everywhere it goes.  Here are the stats for the world at large: 7,185,573 confirmed cases, 408.854 confirmed deaths, and 3,352,665 confirmed recoveries which dwarfs the number of deaths.  Next, here are the numbers for the United States: 2,016,859 confirmed cases, 113,505 confirmed deaths, and 540,763 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where the world famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 113,489 confirmed cases, 4,697 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which tells you all you need to know, that it’s about politics and nothing more.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 679 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 618 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 24,354 confirmed cases, 1,176 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: Besides numerous California cities talking about defunding or closing down altogether the police, now Democrat losers are talking about defunding state prisons and transferring the money to social services.  NO wonder gun sales are going through the roof.  Virtually everyone who writes for the AICPENDBLOG.COM already has firearms and are adding more as we speak.  If this is going to become the new Deadwood, so be it.  We are ready.  Note: to all cities appalled at the talk of defunding the police, there is a simple answer: vote every last flipping Democrat out of office ASAP.   Elsewhere, famed guitarist with UFO, Paul Chapman, died at age 66, in London, England, on this date.  He took over from Michael Schenker when he left to go solo and then played with Schenker as well as other UFO band mates such as Pete Way and even Phil Mogg.
  59. 2021 Wednesday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around and uncover the truth with us as we discover it, too.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Paris released their sophomore effort, “Big Towne 2061” on August 13, 1976, and folks, even though this album did not chart higher than their debut album, this record is phenomenal, from start to finish.  It features the Bob Welch of Fleetwood Mac fame from the “Heroes are Hard to Find” era with the lofty tunes and the sci-fi-influenced themes.  Glenn Cornick is here once again on bass, keyboards, vocals, and harmonicas while Soupy Sale’s son, Hunter Sales is on the drums.  Every song here is a pleasure to behold which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out at your favorite site for music, give it a lengthy listen, and then adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
