Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 32,253 confirmed cases, 1,320 confirmed deaths, and like other mostly BLUE locales, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. It is interesting to note that the United States is NOW the main country with the Kung Flu, which we believe is by design. The communist Chinese via colluding with the Democratic Party have made sure we have the most numbers. George Floyd died for nothing. NOTHING. The protests and now the violent mobs spreading COVID-19 far and wide are doing this by design, all to thwart President Donald J. Trump.

- 2021 Wednesday: Friends, please stick around but note, we may be toning things down a bit what with increased pressure from the outside. Joe Biden is GREAT, communist China WONDERFUL, illegal aliens DELIGHTFUL. Nancy Pelosi is a GENIUS, AOC a MENSA graduate, and BIG GOVERNMENT preferable to freedom and liberty. Yes, we are using Newspeak Dictionary 2021.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on January 11, 1993, just in time for the wintertime blues, “Nightcap- the Unreleased Masters 1973-1991.” This effort contains amazing music on two big discs most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs. If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong. We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure. We think you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY JUNE 30, 2021 #4,009
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Wednesday, June 30, 2021:
[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands. Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.
[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022. Please stay tuned.
[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote. If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago. What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote. Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote. You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.
[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president. The guy was a whoosie.
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
