One of the first things we expect to happen when Joe Biden becomes president is the return of the ACA- this could prove disastrous

Combine that with the economic and societal damage caused by COVID-19 and we have the prospect of economic destruction on a scale heretofore unimagined in the history of this country for working-class folks like you and I, even worse than the Great Depression was for our country.

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,725 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS SIXTY-NINE

When Joe Biden enters the White House, expect the economy to worsen, not improve…

Wasco, CA 93280, 01-11-2021 Monday:  As I said last July, Tibe and me were among the 74 million people (as we later discovered) who were going to vote for President Trump on November 03.  Members of our family did so as well, all of us lifelong Democrats seeing as how we are who we are.  As a family, we discussed how we should vote, the consequences of our actions, and what we hoped to accomplish by going against our political party. 

As I said six months ago, while not fans necessarily of ‘Trump the man,’ we were fans of what he was accomplishing economically.  The economy was booming, everyone who desired to make money was making money, new mortgages as well as re-finances were on the rise as were auto loans, business improvements, everything was sailing along smoothly and then the Chinese virus arrives on scene and everything goes to perdition in the proverbial handbasket.[i]   

Earl Tiberias and I get it, the ongoing battles between Trump and his ever-plentiful enemies were tiresome, fatiguing, wearing, you name it, they matched all those descriptions and more.  However, all one needed to do was to shut off the TV, turn the radio from ‘talk’ to ‘Oldies’ and one could appreciate all the wonderful things occurring without having to participate in the daily barrages of incoming and outgoing fire.

Now that the election is over and it failed to go the way everyone anticipated it would, we now must accept the consequences, consequences that threaten to return our nation to the dire economic times between 2010 and 2017.  No, I’m not bad-mouthing Barack, we love Barack; however, what we didn’t love about Barack is that Obamacare was a bill of goods sold to the American people, one that messed up the economy of working-class folks like you and me.

If you return to some social media comments I wrote back in 2015- before various social media platforms blocked our blogs and social content, before Google began censoring us and/or putting us behind interstitial walls- I was pro-Obamacare, it seemed like an answer to ills that had plagued us for decades, affordable health care, health care available to and for everyone. 

Well, all those guarantees about ‘keeping our doctor and our health care plans if we liked them’ were the bill of goods they sold us as well as pledges as to how much money we were going to save from the new plans- thousands at the end of each year. 

As employers, we were on the frontlines of the PPACA- the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- because we were mandated to provide health care coverage at our expense if we had above a certain number of employees and if we had less, then the employees themselves had to provide their own coverage or contend with the IRS.[ii] 

The other crucial factor of the PPACA was how many hours hourly employees worked if we, the employer, had to cover the costs of their coverage. 

IF the employee worked 40 hours or more per week we had to provide the coverage, coverage that was not cheap but was costly.  Thus, employers like my family and I were faced with a diabolical conundrum, we’d go bankrupt if we were forced to provide health care coverage to our full-time hourly employees which meant if we wanted to remain in business, we would have to pick who and who would not continue as a full-time worker.

Restaurants, grocery stores, department stores, big box stores, the line between the BLACK and the RED- especially for foodservice operations and minimarts and the like- is extremely thin, the razor’s edge if you will, as my colleagues have iterated before me. 

Obamacare put all of us into a nosedive because the relationship between employer and employee changed irrevocably at least until President Donald J. Trump stripped the mandate from the PPACA via executive order.  Coupled with a reduction in excessive regulations and rules is when the economy exploded.  

Joe Biden will soon be our next president.  There is not much point bemoaning what seems to have occurred in the hours, days, and weeks following the Election, we’ll leave that for other writers and for other times.  No, we must look at what’s going to occur because Joe will soon be our president and one of the negative things we expect to happen is a return of the Obamacare mandate.   

Combine that with the economic and societal damage caused by COVID-19 and we have the prospect of economic destruction on a scale heretofore unimagined in the history of this country for working-class folks like you and I, even worse than the Great Depression was for our country.   

We will discuss what most likely is going to happen when ‘President-elect Joe Biden’ becomes ‘President Joe Biden’ on January 20.

The band’s sixth album, “Quicksilver,” hit record store shelves in 1971 and found the band back in Frisco and with only Dino Valenti, Gary Duncan, Greg Elmore, and David Freiberg still aboard and with Mark Naftalin on keyboards.  This is an overlooked album, but it is one that every serious collector of the times needs to own so please seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.  In five days, we begin promoting the Jefferson Airplane’s discography; you do NOT want to miss that.

ENDNOTES:


[i] One of my other post published last July was one in which, I laid out further reasons as WHY ET and I were going to vote for Trump: the out-of-control violence that was trashing our country.  I am sorry, we didn’t see the Democratic Party out there trying to do anything to stop it but were in fact spurring it on to the point that the American people could not take it any longer.  Trump promised law and order and we voted for law and order.

[ii] The employer requirement says that businesses with 50 or more full-time workers must provide health care coverage up to 95% of their employees and their families up to age 26.  Otherwise, if we fail to provide healthcare coverage, we must pay a fee of $2,000 per employee (excluding the first 30 full-time employees) which as you can see for a restaurant would be devastating.   The mandate, however, does not apply to employers with 49 or fewer full-time employees although most restaurants have between 50 and 75 employees so we find ourselves on the firing line. Employers with less than 25 FTE (full-time employees) can qualify for ‘help’ from the federal government but note- nothing is ever ‘free’ or helpful from government.  There is always a catch.

Just because one has ‘health care’ does not mean it’s accessible, low cost, or any good, especially when Dems promise to provide it FREE (among other things) to illegal aliens

I tell them ‘No worry’ because President Trump- from the very beginning of his time in office- has said that ‘he and the Republicans will protect people with pre-existing conditions.’ The fact that he defends the American people and is unlike the Democrats bellowing ‘we are going to give FREE healthcare to illegal aliens,’ I hope reassures them because Medicare and Medicaid, and other low cost forms of insurance will dry up quicker than if things continue the way they have been for the past 3.75 years.

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,650 AT THE AICP-END

SIX DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

Hawaii is a state overloaded with ‘pre-existing conditions’

Kula, HI 96790, 10-28-2020 Wednesday:  Six days now to Election Day and the polls are tightening, even here in Hawaii.  No one believes the polls; we certainly do not believe the big news networks nor do we believe in Fox News[i] anymore.  If anything, we seek out news from a variety of sources journeying far and wide on the Internet to see news from a variety of other sites such as One America News, the Blaze, Breitbart, and of course, Newsmax.  Up until recently, no one I know, either here in Hawaii or on the mainland, understood just how stilted the news was until views we commonly hold appear nowhere in the daily reporting of the day’s events.  This should tell everyone that whatever polls say about HOW BIG the margin the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket has, it’s all smoke and mirrors, all bogus reporting, even here in my home state.    

One of the important things my friends and family ask me almost always has to do with the issue of health care.  They want to know IF Donald Trump is going to strip away their health care, if he is going to rip away coverage for pre-existing conditions which here in Hawaii is a BIG THING due to the numbers of people here with diabetes, high blood pressure, lung issues, liver disease, weight problems, and other debilitating, expensive maladies due to nutritional imbalances. 

It is not that Hawaii is not paradise but native peoples are like native peoples elsewhere, many typically fall into poor health habits such as smoking too much, drinking too much, eating way too much, eating salty or fatty or sugary foods, and, of course, toking on the old pakalolo[ii].  It is what it is. 

Our families being as large as they are, someone is always having a birthday, an anniversary, a celebration of some kind that demands all the grandparents, uncles and the aunts, all the cousins, the nieces, the nephews, the kids to come to luau where if no one brings something to the party, they are seen as being losers. 

Thus, we have all kinds of food, especially seafoods like opihis[iii], lots of poke[iv], sashimi, all kinds of salt-seeds, you name it, we eat lots of pupus, drink lots of beer- especially local-made beer- eat poi, you name it, we eat it along with way too much salt.

People hear these horror stories that President Trump wants to rip away their healthcare, wants to force people with pre-existing conditions off insurance plans so they can fend for themselves.  This means 90-percent or more of Hawaii’s population would find themselves devoid of health care coverage which would mean, the sick would become even sicker. 

I tell them ‘No worry’ because President Trump- from the very beginning of his time in office- has said that ‘he and the Republicans will protect people with pre-existing conditions.’  The fact that he defends the American people and is unlike the Democrats bellowing ‘we are going to give FREE healthcare to illegal aliens,’ I hope reassures them because Medicare and Medicaid, and other low cost forms of insurance will dry up quicker than if things continue the way they have been for the past 3.75 years. 

If anything, President Trump reassuring the American people that America’s benefits are for the benefit of the American people should reassure all of them.  If anyone wants to dilute the money in Medicare, Social Security, and other programs designed to care for the people of this country, it’s the Democrats who seek to dilute what’s left in the tank by giving the benefits to people undeserving of them because they don’t belong here.

President Trump is correct when he points out that for Venezuela to be in the condition it now is took less than 20 years to accomplish, what do people think is going to happen when the Democrats give everyone Medicare for All by expanding Obamacare to include illegal aliens?  The programs are going to implode, tens of millions will be left on the outside while the left’s newest identity politics group- illegal aliens- receive benefits that should be going to us.

Remember this: just because you ‘have health care’ does not mean you ‘have health care.’  No, it means that if you do have health care, it’s of poor quality, it’s rationed, and that if you do finally get in to see a doctor for the pancreatic carcinoma or the emphysema with which you are struggling, it’s going to be way too late to cure it or to prolong your life.  

Friends do not believe any of this crap the Democrats are spewing.  It’s all crap, pure unadulterated crap, I urge you to disbelieve any of the bull crap the Dems are filling the airwaves with around the clock[v].  Trump will fight for US, he will protect pre-existing conditions, and he will deny noncitizens benefits enjoyed by the American people.  Count on it.

Aloha.  We will pick back up tomorrow.  I will see you then, keep your chins up and prepare yourselves for Election Day.  It could be ugly…

In 1995, thanks to the fine folks at the BBC, Fleetwood Mac released their “Live at the BBC,” a stellar collection on two discs featuring a total of 36 tracks from the band’s earliest incarnations.  We hope you will use the convenient link above and buy through us at Amazon.com!  It is a shame that the United States lacks such a sterling entity as the BBC because it shorts music fans of opportunity to hear their favorite bands performing live on the radio.  We know you will love this 2-CD set, one that comes in around $50 so it is an investment of sorts but a worthwhile investment.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] For many of us who began watching Fox News when it became available to us, it has been difficult for the past several years as they have added more and more left-wing, liberal voices to their network while eradicating older conservative folks we enjoyed watching.  Chris Wallace has turned so many people off- me included- with his unfair ganging up on President Trump in the first debate.  I know some of my colleagues say watching Neil Cavuto and Martha McCallum, and some of the ‘talking heads’ the network trots out for the ‘leftist view’ have turned them off, too.  I know how they feel.  I guess the thing about Donald Trump being our president is that it has driven many relatively grounded people to go insane.  How horrible to have that much power (LOL).

[ii] The wild weed, people, ganga, you know, Maui Wowie, perhaps the best weed in the world (used to smoke da kine but no mo’).

[iii] Opihis are tiny, little shellfish that cling to rocks off the shoreline of Hawaii that brave swimmers must go out and remove from the rocks with sharp knives.  The wahines then scoop them out of their shells, add seaweed (limu), lots of salt, and other seasonings and we eat them like poke.  It is common for people harvesting them to sometimes lose their lives when big waves crash into them knocking them off their precarious perches and then carrying them out to sea so only the strongest local people go and retrieve them.  Still, they are so ono that people will continue harvesting them for important celebrations.  No, we like kaukau.

[iv] Poke is like a raw seafood ‘salad’ of sorts in which we use squid, octopus, and other shellfish and the like in dishes combined with limu and other flavorful ingredients like red onions, watercress, and tomatoes.  Good stuff.  As we say, “Some good, bra, some good.”

[v] I think the Dems are outspending the GOP but that does not mean anything.  We are going to win…

Should Democrats win on Nov. 3, the road ahead will immediately become dark, dreary, and dangerous as the populace will become dependent solely upon government for any and all largesse

The only way to quickly force a population into accepting a dictatorship is through removing their ability to have hope, hope that steady employment and three squares a day provides one and one’s family. Imagine that with an immediate ban on fossil fuels and a massive increase in the price of a gallon of gas or of heating oil and the mobility the American people enjoy will diminish in the blink of an eye.

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,645 AT THE AICP-END

11 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

Like it or not, IF Democrats win BIG on November 3, the changes will be almost instantaneous…

Bakersfield, CA 93304, 10-23-2020 Friday:  We have been discussing what the likely actions the Democrats will commence taking should the nation be so unfortunate as to lose the election on November 3, all of which are depressing.  We know the Dems envy the power dictators around the world possess- especially the Chi-Coms and, believe it or not, the Russians, their perennial favorite for bashing when it comes to President Donald J. Trump. 

Before Russia ‘became Russia again,’ they were the Soviet Union, an evil entity with which, the Democrats were deeply in love.  Whenever we had a Republican president such as Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush, the devious Dems dealt with them under the table in their attempt to undermine Republican-steered foreign policy.[i]  Now, the Russians are their bogeyman but that is a story for another day.     

Many Americans have done very well under President Donald J. Trump.  Things we were led to believe were behind us in the rearview mirror such as rising wages, better benefits, careers instead of jobs, rising home ownership rates, new car purchases, vacations, and increased consumer spending within three years came roaring back. 

Our standard of living increased and everything looked great when it came to the future, that is, before the Chi-Coms launched the Chi-Vi around the world with the express purpose of damaging the growing American economy.  Everyone else around the world was…wait for it…collateral damage- so much for participating in the Belts and Roads BS.[ii]

Much of what happened that returned America to the American people was because (1) President Donald J. Trump ended the Obamacare mandate, perhaps one of the biggest full-time employment killing political creations of all time.[iii] 

Add to that (2) the president demanded the end of two regulations for every new one enacted and suddenly, struggling industries such as domestic oil, natural gas, and coal production and refining returned with a vengeance, something libs used to tell us ‘if we begin drilling again, it will take 10 years or more before we are able to enjoy it’ occurred within TWO years.[iv] 

Next, (3) the president going after the other perennial friend of the Democratic Party- the Chi-Coms on trade, intellectual property theft, out-of-control spying in the U.S. and their sending us tons of fentanyl killing our less stable population members and one could easily see that what the last presidential administration told us was ‘impossible’ and you can easily determine for yourself how life under President Trump was improving for the better on a scale heretofore unimagined.[v]

Let us now imagine that “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, win the election on November 3.  Let us imagine they are able to resoundingly defeat President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.  Let us imagine that various anti-Trumper entities within the Deep State move to displace Trump sooner than Inauguration Day, that they charge him with all manner of crimes and take him into custody before he can leave the United States for friendlier climes.

You know these people want to do this, that has been their goal from the very beginning, ever since humongous crowds chanted “LOCK HER UP” when they heard the name Hillary Clinton.  They have had it out for this guy since 2015 when he mentioned that SOME of the illegal aliens swamping our country were ‘rapists, thugs, and criminals.’  Oh, they hate that sort of speech because they love them some illegal aliens.  Always have and always will.

Alas, poor old Joe drops dead ahead of Inauguration Day (or shortly thereafter which will allow Commie Kamala to run for two terms atop of the term she will do for #46 and almost immediately, taxes will go up by $3-4 trillion, the Trump tax cuts and child credits will vanish, and the mandate to Obamacare will be slapped back onto health care policies.

The latter will slash hours back to 28 hours or less per week so employers do not have to provide health care to their employees because of it being costly once more.  Imagine how devastating that would be to our economy, almost overnight, when combined with the COVID-19 lockdowns they will reinstitute.  If government proclaims you must provide health care coverage to all employees no matter the number of hours worked and businesses will close for good.

The only way to quickly force a population into accepting a dictatorship is through removing their ability to have hope, hope that steady employment and three squares a day provides one and one’s family.  Imagine that with an immediate ban on fossil fuels and a massive increase in the price of a gallon of gas or of heating oil and the mobility the American people enjoy will diminish in the blink of an eye.   

Add to that increased restrictions due to the Chinese Virus and you will have an entire populace dependent upon government for everything, much like the population of North Korea is on whatever their government provides.  Lose the love of the government and you, sir, and you, madam, will become personas non grata, nothing, zip, zero, nada, zilch, you, and your loved ones.[vi] 

All of this will occur in the blink of an eye because this time, the Democrats and the Democratic-Socialists are NEVER going to cede power again.[vii] 

Please, rejoin me tomorrow and we will continue our discussion of what’s to come should the Democrats win on November 3.

The next album by Fleetwood Mac, “Tango in the Night,” (04-13-1987) commenced as a Lindsey Buckingham solo effort but morphed into a full-band release.  This album was the group’s second biggest seller, following the astounding global success of “Rumours,” but the pressure it placed atop the band’s guitarist caused him to throw in the towel and abandon the group shortly thereafter.  The album generated four massive hits and is an album worthy of ownership by YOU and EVERYONE you know.  We tend to favor Amazon.com but there are countless other venues where you can get music at phenomenal prices so go wither thou go…

FOOTNOTES:

[i] No one ever accused Democrats of violating the Logan Act but if you want textbook examples of what a violation of the act would be, look at how Teddy Kennedy, senator from Massachusetts, actively dealt with the Soviet Union as he tried to undermine the Reagan administration’s goal of taking down the Soviet Union.  Likewise, we had all manner of left-wing Democrats conspiring with the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, in Cuba with the Castro boys, and elsewhere around the world.  All of them should have been hit with violations of the Logan Act, tried, convicted, driven out of government and imprisoned. 

[ii] Anyone who believes that the Wuhan Virus is somehow an aberration is crazy; no, the Chi-Coms allowed this bug to escape their Wuhan laboratories where it was engineered, expressly for this purpose, of destroying the world economy so the Chi-Coms would not be alone in their economic struggles, being on the losing end of the U.S.-Sino Trade War.  They had to even the playing field.

[iii] The removal of the Obamacare mandate immediately saw jobs and wages explode across the country as the biggest job-killer in recent times was the mandate.  Had John McCain not behaved like an envious prick- his service respected- and done the right thing to vote Obamacare into the dustbin of history, this thing would indeed be in the rearview mirror now.  McCain showed that he was little more than a prick.

[iv] This was the stock answer whenever someone on the right declared that we should return to drilling our own oil.  They would say, “if you start drilling oil NOW, it will take 10 years before you enjoy the fruits of increased production” which President Trump demonstrated was a load of crap.  We were energy independent within 2.5 years.  Two-and-a-half-years, people!

[v] I’m sorry, based on the export of fentanyl to our country, we should be in war with these slimy c**ksuckers because to me, this is an act of war.  As my colleagues have pointed out, what the Chi-Coms are doing to us is akin to what the Brits used to do to the Chinese, waging Opium Wars in which, the Chinese would lose and foreign powers would gobble up more of their territory.

[vi] Step out of line in North Korea and you are f**ked.  Even staying in line, one can still be f**ked.  Not good, folks, not good, and that is precisely what the Democrats would do to us should they win everything on November 3.

[vii] Who would ever have believed that the future of our democracy would be so at risk as it now is?  Civil War might be the only way by which, we can eliminate the communists seeking to devour us.

For the good of our country and its citizens, changes must be made, uniformity created, and criminals and fraudsters must be punished for their transgressions against the American people including all politicians caught trying to steal or damage elections. We have no other choice. Please, let me know what YOU think- the future of our country is at stake. We also must defend the Electoral College from being toppled.

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,636 AT THE AICP-END

20 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

Without free and fair elections, we have no country…

Santa Barbara, CA 93102, 10-14-2020 Wednesday:  Yesterday, we began talking about amendments I would like to see enacted following the MASSIVE ELECTORAL VICTORY coming on November 3, amendments that would correct some major areas of concern in our federal system.  I would like to backtrack to the proposed XXVIII Amendment I mentioned in yesterday’s post because I left some issues untended.  As you should recall, yesterday’s amendment suggestion was about fixing the voter system across the country, a system in which, each state and territory makes it own election laws which is great but inadequate in this age of Democrats blatantly trying to steal elections.  Hence, I believe some uniform standards must be added to all of the various systems which would provide for the federal government to have overall say in what states can and cannot have in their systems, especially in this time of FOREIGN ENTITIES[i] trying to interfere in U.S. elections.    

One of the things that blows the mind of your average, ordinary citizen is the fact that the Democrats could care flipping less that the public fully sees them in the act of trying to steal this election.[ii] 

I mean, mailing out mail-in ballots to all adults living in a state, to all ‘registered voters,’ uh, proclaiming that ‘signatures on mail-in ballots do not have to match,’ that ‘ballots can come in SANS postmarks, or can continue coming in a week, two, or three after Election Day,’ moves such as this are absolutely insane.  Moreover, they also demonstrate- beyond the shadow of a doubt– that the Democrats- and their Beijing masters- will stoop to any low in STEALING elections.[iii]

Friends, due to the criminality the Democrats continue demonstrating in the run-up to Election Day tells me and millions of other Americans that the federal government is going to have to assume some control over the process and that the only way to prevent future Democrats from corrupting U.S. elections is via the amendment process to the U.S. Constitution.

Here are the overall necessary changes to each state’s voting system, same kind of FEDERAL changes the Obama administration mandated all healthcare insurance providers had to offer in the three tiers of plans.  I mean, if Obama could take over the nation’s health insurance and healthcare programs to force some sort of uniformity to the system, then so, too, can the feds do something about the elections system which is in dire need of protecting.[iv]

The XXVIII Amendment I propose should require the following points: first, ALL states must require authentic VOTER PHOTO ID and that if someone does not vote in four election cycles- sans special elections- they will have to renew their status.  Next, NO mail-in ballots.  However, if voters want to vote absentee, they must apply to do so and send in the request no later than 31 days out from the election.  There also can be no ‘same-day voter registration.’  That is bulls**t.  

Third- signatures on absentee and in-person voting MUST MATCH.  This is common sense.  Sure, if there is a slight variation over election cycles, this is generally what happens, people’s signatures do vary over the decades.  However, if you get signatures that clearly are not the same, the ballots must be tossed because they’re invalid. 

Furthermore, as a further security measure, every voter should affix their thumbprint to their ballot with indelible ink that won’t come off for 5-7 days and should they not have thumbs with which to do so due to injury or birth defect, they must have a notary public notarize their ballot at no expense to them.  Thus, notary publics should be available at all polling places.  Once they vote, they will receive a tracking receipt so they can make sure their ballots arrived when and where they should and that they were counted or tossed.

Fourth- there must be a set date- two days after Election Day- for ballots to be counted unless they are absentee from outside the country or U.S. military votes- they have one week from Election Day to arrive and undergo counting.  However, we can have none of the crap the Democrats are demanding, which is ballots can continue being counted for two, three, or four weeks past Election Day.  This is both ludicrous and insane.   Democrats will always find boxes of ballots wherever they need to while disappearing those they don’t want.

NONCITIZENS cannot vote, illegal aliens will be deported (along with their families, legal or illegal) IF they are caught voting or scamming the system, NO questions asked.  Enablers of illegal alien, felon, or otherwise ineligible voters must serve a 20-year stretch in a federal prison if busted committing election fraud.[v] 

Voting systems in all 57 states and territories must be uniform.  NO state can use mail-in voting exclusively as if you look at all states that have gone down this path, it’s rather ‘coincidental’ to see that most of them moved from RED to BLUE.  Coincidence?  I rather doubt it…

Anyone caught tampering with elections systems, with ballot transports, with counting of ballots, ballot harvesting, or anything else must face a 20-year stretch in prison.  We also must do one other thing and that via the XXVIII Amendment is to raise the voting age to 21 with no lowering of the voting age. 

The reason for this is that unless you are an emancipated minor or serving in the military, most young people do not mature until they are in their forties so WHY would we want 18-year-olds, much less 17-year-olds, 16-year-olds, or younger voting?  They are too immature and too ill-educated to participate in our democracy no matter what crackpots such as Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats continue claiming[vi].

For the good of our country and its citizens, changes must be made, uniformity created, and criminals and fraudsters must be punished for their transgressions against the American people including all politicians caught trying to steal or damage elections.  We have no other choice.  Please, let me know what YOU think- the future of our country is at stake.  We also must defend the Electoral College from being toppled.  

See you tomorrow.

We continue offering albums by one of Britain’s greatest bands, Fleetwood Mac, a band with a long history and a much-longer list of musicians going through its ranks.  Their thirteenth album, “Penguin,” came out in March 1973 and saw a new line-up of sorts.  Bob Welch was now clearly running the band, along with Mick Fleetwood, and Christine and John McVie, all three long-term members, but he was the undisputed musical guiding light.  Dave Walker, late of Savoy Brown, had joined the band along with second guitarist, Bob Weston, both brought in to augment the band’s sound.  This is a worthwhile album to purchase so we hope you will investigate it at whatever site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did- undoubtedly.

FOOTNOTES:

[i] I thought Democrats did not want FOREIGN governments trying to interfere in U.S. elections, yet there they are, conspiring with the Chi-Coms and with one another and their shock troops on the ground to do everything they can to steal this election.  I mean, we may have to strap when we go vote because there is no telling what we are going to face on Election Day.  We might have to fight our way through throngs of Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs, and mobs of illegal aliens.  Yeah, I think all of us had better strap.

[ii] Everywhere one looks, one sees the Democrats actively doing everything they can to steal the upcoming elections and what’s worse, they don’t care.  This is WHY tens of millions of Americans are going to flood the polls, voting another term for Trump and for every Republican on the ballot in partisan races or not.  The only way we are going to save our country is by fighting for it and like my friend and colleague, Chef James “JT” Tobiason said last week, “America, love it or leave it!”  Amen.

[iii] It is not much of a stretch to see that the Chi-Coms and their numerous ‘tools’ in the United States are actively colluding with the Democratic Party.  For “Pro-China Joe” Biden to win on November 3 would be like a wet dream coming true for Xi Jinping and his CCP henchmen-and-women.  However, I don’t think they will be successful and that when they wake up, the sheets will be stuck to their bodies…

[iv] IF Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats could take over the U.S. healthcare system and force it to become subservient to Obamacare sans an amendment to the Constitution, why can’t we via the amendments process do something to solidify and to protect America’s elections system?  Back when the Framers of the Constitution created the document, they hadn’t a clue as to what the future might bring such as technological improvements and advancements, things unscrupulous scumbags can twist, distort, or corrupt, so it is up to us to amend the Constitution and to protect the country for future generations.

[v] Unless one is a permanent resident with a green card, NO illegal aliens, felons, or underage people- with the exception of emancipation or U.S. military service- should ever be able to vote and anyone enabling them to do so must go to prison for a substantial amount of years so that others won’t attempt the same crimes.

[vi] I hate to insult my grandchildren but folks, most of them are still children, even in their twenties and thirties so why in God’s name would we permit 16-year-olds to vote?  They will either vote as their teachers tell them in classrooms or their parents do at home.  Have you talked to a 16-year-old lately?

When Donald Trump wins re-election, how about in the second term, he fulfills the promise of erasing the ‘lines’ around the states so every health care insurer could compete and offer a vast variety of plans, affordable to all?

The big argument during the push for Obamacare was that everyone would pay for just about everything in their ACA plans which supposedly was to balance out the costs for every person. Sadly, it failed in this goal as the Affordable Care Act became an albatross around the necks of both employers and consumers because the average costs of plans was much more than they originally were. Ai caramba, mis amigos, que la chingada!

“When Donald Trump wins re-election, how about in the second term, he fulfills the promise of erasing the ‘lines’ around the states so every health care insurer could compete and offer a vast variety of plans, affordable to all?” by Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto, CEC-ACF

SUMMER SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,596 AT THE AICP-END

60 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

Mr. President, one promise you have failed to keep is the removal of the ‘lines’ around every state so every health care insurer could compete

Shater, CA 93263, 09-04-2020 Friday:  For many disgruntled Americans, it is easy to blame President Donald J. Trump for all our ills, when in fact, he has done a mind-blowing job at trying to resurrect America from the ashes of the Chi-Com Virus.  I, like others among my colleagues, have heaped high praise atop the shoulders of Mr. Trump because through everything, he has steamed on like a locomotive, going over all manner of obstacles and always plowing ahead.  Our economy was spectacular, the Obamacare mandate was mandated to the dumps, and had the Republican-controlled House and Senate back in early 2017 not been so hung up on the fact that ‘Trump might have colluded with the Russians,’ we might have seen the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act thrown into the garbage along with the very unpopular mandate.[i]    

Most sane people do not want socialized medicine.[ii]  People typically only want it when they have nothing else to use so whatever the politicians are promoting- especially when they say someone else is going to cover the costs, aka FREE- it looks and sounds rather good.   Who wouldn’t jump at FREE?

However, ask anyone on the lowest rung of government-provided health care if they like being on Medicaid and they will tell you, “Hell, no,” because to do so means you are more or less condemning yourself to permanent government management of your entire life from that point forward.  The application asks for all manner of information, do you have a house, a car, a bank account, whatever, and when you die, the managers of Medicaid will basically seize whatever it was you had by way of financial resources to cover whatever bills you had for which, they paid.

All this talk of FREE HEALTH CARE is a red herring as a politician would say, ‘just because you have ‘health care’ does not mean you can either obtain it when you need it or that if you do, it’s worth having.[iii]  Look at the horror stories that come out of the European Union, Canada, or Massachusetts, many times life-saving tests and treatments do not become available until one is well-past the point of saving meaning YOU are going to DIE, most likely in a fair amount of pain.  Is this right?  You tell me!

It would seem that President Trump and the Republicans have worked hard at fixing portions of the health care system such as creating the “Right to Try” act (or whatever it was) so that terminally ill people could throw caution to the winds and take a chance on receiving an experimental drug or treatment in the hope that it would either cure them or prolong their lives.  This is something marvelous for any person suffering from an incurable or possibly curable disease which in addition to they serve as test subjects for those who might follow in their footsteps. 

What I would love to see President Trump do is something he promised back in 2015 and 2016, removing the ‘lines’ surrounding various states.  When they talk about ‘lines,’ what they are saying is that every state has but several medical insurance providers within their borders.  This, many believe, was done to limit competition, thus driving prices UP for the consumer and profits for the vendors.

The big argument during the push for Obamacare was that everyone would pay for just about everything in their ACA plans which supposedly was to balance out the costs for every person.  Sadly, it failed in this goal as the Affordable Care Act became an albatross around the necks of both employers and consumers because the average costs of plans was much more than they originally were.  Ai caramba, mis amigos, que la chingada!

If Congress would remove the ‘lines’ around the states, every health insurer could compete in every state and offer a vast variety of plans.  Instead of young people having to buy a big plan that covers everything including stuff they may never use like health care for opposite sex issues, they could buy a catastrophic health care plan that would kick in should they get injured in a major accident or come down with cancer of the appendix.  Otherwise, they would pay far-lower costs and roll the dice with their health but it would be THEIR choice. 

We will discuss this more so please, join me again tomorrow.

In 1993, the Flamin’ Groovies released a delightful album with only two musicians listed: Cyril Jordan (guitars/keyboards/vocals) and George Alexander (bass, harmonica, and vocals).  We have no clue if they performed all the instruments or had guests come in and join them.  Say what you will about this garage band extraordinaire, “Rock Juice,” is a wonderful album to behold and to listen to as always, the duo remains true to the heart, spirit, and soul of the rock music of the 1960s. The fact that this band went deep into the 1990s should tell everyone just how great they were, they could rock with the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, Humble Pie, and loads and loads of others and on a good night, blow all of them away which is why we love them so much.  Check them out NOW!

FOOTNOTES:


[i] It is sad that this had to been one of the all-time great moments in time, when the American people could free themselves from the onerous restrictions of Obamacare, a ‘thing’ that was never intended to deliver health care to the American people but to restrict still more and to remove money from the middle classes and then redistribute it to the never-do-wells and illegal aliens.  NO ONE I KNOW was ever for giving health care to noncitizens.

[ii] Socialized medicine is what happens when a government crushes capitalism.  IF we allowed every government-approved health care insurer to compete in all 57 states and territories, prices would drop, availability and plans would increase, and the American people would be much better off than they currently are.

[iii] This is the eternal RUB: Just because ‘you have healthcare’ does not mean it’s any good or that it’s available to you . Look at all the crap-hole countries with socialized medicine- North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Communist China, and other European countries where people have to go on medical safaris to get treated for their problems and at reasonable rates.  NO one in their right mind wants government-provided health care unless it’s senior or military health care and then, there’s always room for improvement.

“NO one should ever vote for another Democrat candidate until they regain their sanity and return to what made them a great party: fighting for the little guy and gal and not for a hodgepodge of lunatic ideas” by Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto, CEC-ACF

SUMMER SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,594 AT THE AICP-END

62 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

Until the Democratic Party regains its sanity, we should never vote for another Democrat- ever!

Shater, CA 93263, 09-02-2020 Wednesday:  Amigos, I want to talk to you about my allegiance to the Democratic Party today, an allegiance that as we speak is vanishing before our eyes.  Born in 1942 in Los Angeles, California, I was old enough to participate in many of the movements of the 1960s and back in those days, the cry of battle was about ‘free speech rights,’ that all voices must be heard, even those with which, we disagreed.  We had the Free Speech Movement, an organization that came kicking and screaming into life in Berkeley, California, a nationwide bastion of liberalism, free speech, and filled with visionaries of a united future.  All around us were the Brown Berets[i], the Black Power Movement, AIM[ii], and numerous other groups all seeking to bring the beauty of America to every man, woman, and child of whatever skin color, whatever ethnicity, and whatever religious beliefs- or lack thereof- to all.    

As I have said over preceding days, I worked hard to promote the Democratic Party.  My parents told me I had no choice other than to be a Democrat, and mis gente would tell me that every election, I had to go out and participate in politics so I would work for this candidate and that one in L.A.,[iii] even though my folks desperately needed me to work in the family restaurant.  Sin embargo, todavía me enviaron a trabajar por lo que era correcto– it’s what we did.

Things began changing under Barack Obama.  While many viewed him as some ‘sort of savior,’ the man did little to fix the underlying problems of the country, problems to which, Vice President Joe Biden promises to return us, should he win in November.  There is the constant braying that everything is racist, that racism is systemic in the country, that the brown man, the black man, and the red man cannot get ahead nor will ever get ahead due to the white man keeping his boot atop our necks.

My family is successful as are many other brown families we know and with whom we associate.  There are many successful Latinx families across the entire state of California as there are black ones, Asian ones, you name it, hard work, determination, and a desire to get ahead propels all of us to achieve enormous things, to become successes in life, and to achieve a state of being better than what our parents or grandparents had and to pass it onto our kids and their kids.

Yet, current Democratic leadership tells us that we are little better than serfs, that we are peons, that we are no better than our ancestors and that unless we pour out of our barrios or our slums or the inner cities and vote for faltering old Joe Biden, we are race traitors, that we deserve to have the boots atop our necks, and that if we are brown, black, red or yellow and DON’T vote the straight Democratic ticket on November 03, well, we aren’t whatever we are.  En otras palabras, estamos fuera de la plantación.

No, if we don’t vote the way party leadership tells us to vote, we are traitors to our race and deserve to live in eternal damnation, shunned forever by other minorities who have bought into the ‘systemic racism’ BS with which they try to fill our heads. 

I am sorry, mis amigos, I simply do not buy into that.  Over the past four years, the economy was going like hot tamales, we were increasing volume, hiring more workers, paying higher wages, and offering better benefits until the Chi-Com virus arrived in full and shutdown mode ensued.  People must wonder if this was ‘coincidence’ or by some sort of ‘design,’ and I am telling you, every day, the latter seems much more likely than the former and it should concern the hell out of all of us, you, me, your family, and mine.

How my party can now advocate EVERYTHING FREE- especially to noncitizens;- is beyond me.  Do you understand that until the Kung Flu arrived on our shores, the economy was better than it’s ever been.  We no longer had to contend with Obamacare- one of the hugest drags on the entire economy- nor did we have to deal with the massive pile of increased rules and regulations that broke the backs of the nation’s employers like my family and me. 

And yet, Mr. Biden says he is going to make the Obamacare mandate law once again, that he wants to provide FREE healthcare to illegal aliens, that he wants to provide them with FREE education and FREE housing and FREE healthy food and a whole laundry list of crazy, crackpot, and loony tunes freebies that will break the backs of America’s employers. 

We are already hurting due to being shut down for varying periods across the state and the country and a return to this insanity is only going to throw us back deeper into the economic doldrums we’ve been free and clear of for the past four years. 

I am sorry, mis amigos, there is no way that anyone who loves the country should ever vote for another Democrat until the party achieves a great re-awakening of sorts and sees that it has strayed from what it once was: the defender of the little guy and gal, the American working class and not illegal aliens who have NO business being here.  

Let me know what you think.  Muchas gracias, mis amigos, nos vemos a la manana.

In 1987, the Flamin’ Groovies returned with a superlative live show recorded in the post Roy Loney years.  The album, “One Night Stand,” features the lineup of Cyril Jordan (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Chris Wilson (guitars/lead vocals/keyboards), George Alexander (bass, harmonica, and vocals), David Wilhelm (guitar, harmonica, and vocals), and David Wright (drums).  The band roars through a smoking set of classic covers along with a few of their own.  We hope you will throw out your Arianna Grande records along with Maroon Five and the rest of the phony crap you hear on the radio.  These guys were the seminal band of the era.
