Meanwhile, opening statements took place in Sanford, Florida, trial of George Zimmerman, the trigger-happy neighborhood watchman accused of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

At the time of publication, we have not yet heard whether this political activist judge will do what was asked of him or whether he will continue trying to go after Flynn.

  69. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday B: Sadly, there was a bad day on Wall Street.  Here are the numbers for the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,445.94, DOWN 710.16 points (2.73%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 9,907.17, DOWN 222.20 points (2.19%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,050.33, DOWN 80.96 points (2.59%).  Finally, President Donald J. Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.3n Octopus #67 05-30-2020 (400)

 

Like Roky Erickson of the 13th Floor Elevators, there is a certain mystique about fallen ‘acid warriors,’ people whose minds have crossed to the other side and failed to make the transition back.  People are curious and want to hear any unreleased material and “Opel” by Syd Barret, an album of outtakes and alternates and some unreleased tunes from his 1968-69 sessions came out on October 17, 1988.  This is a fascinating album to be sure and it sure is a shame that Barrett went whacko but like Erickson, even whacko, he could produce some phenomenal music.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will enjoy it.

On March 27, 2000, Pink Floyd released a two-disc set, “Is There Anyone Out There? The Wall Live 1980-1981.” When the album, “The Wall” came out at the turn of the decade back in 1980, the band went out on the wrote on a lengthy tour that spanned the globe. The album featured the four Pink Floyd members plus additional musicians to enable the group to reproduce the sound of the classic studio album. We know you will find this album to be one of the greatest by any band, British or American, which is why we encourage all our readers to speed on over to their favorite site for rock music and to get it.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013. We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections. You will be glad you did.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade. At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014. We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

Just the Facts: Democrats seem more concerned about giving away the ‘national store’ to illegal aliens while showing no concern for American citizens- not a winning strategy

San Luis Obispo, CA, 05-28-2019 Tuesday:  Currently, we have a field of 23 Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald J. Trump and almost none of them- other than the old geezer, Joe Biden, or the socialist, Bernie Sanders, is anywhere close to having an unassailable lead over their fellows.  Some have surged up the charts only to fall back down into the mosh pit while others like Groping Joe manage to maintain a head of steam because the others are, uh, so…nauseating.

526 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

The Democratic Party’s 2020 sweepstakes is getting crazier by the day…

San Luis Obispo, CA, 05-28-2019 Tuesday:  Currently, we have a field of 23 Democrats seeking to challenge President Donald J. Trump and almost none of them- other than the old geezer, Joe Biden, or the socialist, Bernie Sanders, is anywhere close to having an unassailable lead over their fellows.  Some have surged up the charts only to fall back down into the mosh pit while others like Groping Joe manage to maintain a head of steam because the others are, uh, so…nauseating.

I suspect before all is over and done, there will be another entry or two because if the bulk of the pack is in low single digits, why not take a chance, throw one’s hat into the ring and give it a chance?  I know if I wanted to be president and I saw that most of the losers seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party stood little to no chance at winning, why would I not give it a shot?
