Original Beverly Carrick Artworks, Beverly Carrick—World Famous Artist, Ray Manzarek, The Doors, Steve Hackett, Genesis, Keith Richard, Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithful, President Abraham Lincoln, Joe Schermie, Three Dog Night, Pablo Cruise, Cory Lerios, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh,

[i] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012. We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[ii] 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.”

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019. This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins. Please, look for them.

[iv] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected. We certainly will one day. Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030. We hope you will remain vigilant.

[vii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members’ solo projects. We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces. Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too. Perhaps one day we will.

[viii] Present the music of Adele one day? If we are still around in 15-20 years, we just might.

[ix] God created the neutron bomb for wiping out maggots like these scum. President Trump: LIGHT THEM UP!

[x] Does anyone ever question WHY Germany has become Russia’s bitch?

[xi] Climate change is a hoax, the way the Democrats and liberals around the world present it. The climate is always changing but the solar activity- abundance or lack of sunspots and solar flares- is the driving force and it changes the climate on every planet in our Solar System.

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#TT001.1c Cellophane #3 12-25-2019 (400)

The Troggs returned with No. 3, “Cellophane,” on March 08, 1967, once again, another powerful rocker to be sure. The band featured Reg Presley (vocals), Chris Britton (guitars/backing vocals), Pete Staples (bass/backing vocals), and Ronnie Bond (drums). This band was red hot in its day and the cover tunes mixed with some originals were absolutely amazing. One of the great unsung bands of its time when one considers the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Hollies, Them, and the Zombies, the Troggs should be right up there with them in that pantheon of rock music greats. Please, use the link and visit Amazon.com so you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

JTF: We Democrats must keep our eyes on the prize which means we could lose in 2020 but win BIG in 2022 and accomplish what we desire most, the ouster of #45 and into federal prison

If you wound him but don’t destroy him, he will win re-election because his braindead cult followers- my companions at this blog the only exceptions- will storm out to the polls and vote not just once but twice, thrice, or more and we will be stuck with him for at least two more years and possibly four if we fail to add to the House and win the Senate with enough members for us to win a two-thirds majority to remove the bum.

BLOG POST #3,325 AT THE AICP-END

 

333 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

Democrats can win in 2020- 2022 for sure- but we have to be smart and get our anger under control…

Arvin, CA 93203, 12-08-2019 Sunday:  Folks, today is IT, the final day of the year for me and then we get down to business next year.  Do you know that Reddit’s bots wouldn’t permit me to share my Thursday post, the one in which I swore that IF Nancy Pelosi and her two buds, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler, botched the 2020 Presidential Election that I would NEVER vote Democrat again, my wife, too?  Reddit said it was SPAM which is bull crap because we have been posting at Reddit for as long as the blog has been alive and from its earliest incarnation at Choseit.com and this is the FIRST time in 10 years that they stopped a post from appearing.  What the hell is wrong with Reddit?  I am a frigging Democrat and have the right to call balls and strikes the way I see them and if they don’t like my comments, they can go F**K themselves in the ass!

As you know, I slept overnight on my comments on Thursday only to come back and say that there might be a way out for Democrats such as Nadia and me to continue voting Democrat, only if we use the ensuing anger from a Senate acquittal under “Cocaine Mitch” to either win big in the 2020 Senate races or for sure in 2022.

You see, one way or the other, we are going to get #45, we are going to shut the book on the Cult of 45 by eliminating Cult 45 what with us taking over the Senate, making Chuck Schumer, D-NY, the Senate Majority Leader and making the Republicans the minutest minority in the history of American politics.

Let us imagine that we fail to do this NEXT year and #45 wins a second term.  I think it will allow us to ‘clean House’ by booting out the aged and crumbling speaker who- in MY opinion has become a mortification – along with Steny Hoyer, James Clyburn, and the other fossils in the House leadership because if we should lose the House a second time in what, four elections, ALL of them must go and new leadership must take their places like Marsha Fudge.

In so doing, we will be able to install a younger, more vibrant, much more exciting and devoid of the blank eyes, the slurring words, the stumbling about like the dinosaurs they are with a younger group, perhaps people like Seth Moulton and Tim Ryan and Tulsi Gabbard (f**k this ‘Russian bulls**t,’ the woman is a winner) and in so doing, we can reconfigure.  By 2022, we could add numbers to the House and win enough seats in the U.S. Senate so that when we do impeach this criminal a second time, the charges will stick, he will go, and the nation will be restored.

Now, I know MANY Democrats will say my words are ‘harsh’ but so what?  We have given Nancy Pelosi chance after chance after chance and the woman continues blowing them.  We have listened to Adam Schiff promise us, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that he had the goods.  Where are the goods, Adam?  We are still waiting, you moron.

We have even been patient with Jerrold Nadler, giving him a second chance to do what he couldn’t in his first.  What did we get for our money?  Bang for our buck?  No, we got three legal beagles who clearly hate #45 and another one who made sense but who the cancel culture lunatics in our ranks want to destroy.  It sure as hell was not exciting TV!

Now, we know that tomorrow, some sort of hearing is going to occur in the House but if it’s another bust as the last ones were, not too many Democrats are going to be applauding when they launch this haphazard impeachment.  You see, I stand with the crowd that says ‘if you want to do it right, take your time.  If you want to bollocks it all up, continue doing what you are doing and demoralize the party for an election, or two, or possibly more?

A chef knows that when he sets out to make sourdough bread from scratch starting with the white, rye, or malt starter, that he or she must do it right which means taking one’s time.  There is no way to slam-bam, thank you, ma’am, making sourdough bread so the same principles apply to impeaching and removing the piece of crap living large in the White House.

If you wound him but don’t destroy him, he will win re-election because his braindead cult followers- my companions at this blog the only exceptions- will storm out to the polls and vote not just once but twice, thrice, or more and we will be stuck with him for at least two more years and possibly four if we fail to add to the House and win the Senate with enough members for us to win a two-thirds majority to remove the bum.

As I have said throughout the week, people on our side are angry, hostile, we can’t sleep at night, we cannot ascertain how in God’s Most Holy and Beautiful Name how we find ourselves in the position that we have.  How have we found ourselves with a speaker of the House whose dentures continue slipping around inside her mouth, how her eyes go blank, how she bumbles about looking for the proper words?

When James Rosen asked her if she HATED #45 this past Thursday, she finally woke up, became livid, angry, and hostile and then brays about ‘being a Catholic.’  I’m a Catholic and I am not ashamed to say that I am pro-life because that is what Catholics are.  Yes, I believe that women have a right to control their own bodies but I also believe that women and men must exercise some caution and discretion not to bring unwanted children into the world.

That aside, ALL of us are full of hate, Pelosi included, which is why we are going full bore ahead to get this bogus president out of the White House and into a prison cell.  Please, be honest about it, we are angry, chomping at the bit, suffering from insomnia, drinking too much and smoking far too many cigarettes in a day than is good for us all because we cannot get our act together and do things the right way.

You’ll be glad to know I will be visiting my internist soon to undergo a full check-up.  Yes, I understand that feeling the way I do is not a recipe for a healthy and long, productive life.  We must find ways to maintain our civility and to not allow this ogre of a president to drive all of us into the loony bin.  I hope that next year, we can make things better for all and recover from the belligerency of the past three years.

Have a wonderful Hanukkah, a very merry Christmas, a delightful Kwanzaa, and a wonderful New Year’s.  God bless, good luck, and let’s roll up our sleeves and get down to business. See you in 2020!

Many Democrats are already surrendering to the idea that Michael Bloomberg might be ‘it’ which should tell you everything you need to know about what they think about the rest of their ‘lineup’

Now, we all recall how Congressman Nadler blew it with Robert S. Mueller III and his ‘Russian-collusion hoax.’ As I recall, Nadler took first crack in the morning session and then the doddering old goat (Mueller) stumbled over to Schiff’s committee for- as I recall- closed door hearings which was probably for the best because I bet Schiff did not do much better. At least the embarrassment was not public.

BLOG POST #3,318 AT THE AICP-END

 

340 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

Even if Trump is not on the ticket, Pence will win the landslide in his place, hence why the Dems are going after everyone in the administration…

San Diego, CA 92122, 12-01-2019 SundayBuenos días amigos, welcome to what will be my final post of the year and then like everyone else, we will meet again sometime come May 2020 or so.  It is always rather fascinating to look ahead six months as we write approximately twice a year because when you are as old as I am, you never know if you will wake up the next day, LOL.  Although a joke, to be a good joke, it must have a kernel of truth locked away in it for it to be humorous and to elicit laughs.

Next week, Congressman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, takes another whack at the apple, hosting the impeachment hearings in the House Judiciary Committee where they should have been held from the very start although I think House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to go with Congressman Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee over Nadler’s.  She did this because of the two veteran lawmakers, I think she convinced herself that Schiff was better equipped mentally to give it the old school try.  He and thus she failed.

Now, we all recall how Congressman Nadler blew it with Robert S. Mueller III and his ‘Russian-collusion hoax.’  As I recall, Nadler took first crack in the morning session and then the doddering old goat (Mueller) stumbled over to Schiff’s committee for- as I recall- closed door hearings which was probably for the best because I bet Schiff did not do much better.  At least the embarrassment was not public.

This upcoming week, we are going to witness the doldrums of Democratic hopes as Jerry Nadler is going to attempt to come up with coherent articles of impeachment- if Schiff has not already written them up and is going to pass them off to his old buddy- so he can resurrect his part in the ongoing fiasco and attempt to rehabilitate whatever shred of credibility remaining to him from his previous disaster.

I think if Speaker Pelosi was ‘on the ball’ instead of the incoherent, searching-for-words-loser that she is, she might smell the coffee and determine which way the wind is blowing and other than for a small overly-vocal mini-minority, it is not blowing in the direction that she hopes.  It is rather like a wind blowing over the county dump and all one can smell is the stench of refuse, crap, and garbage.

Those of us who live in California truly wish our politicians would come home and do the work of the people of our state rather than to take us for granted as the entire Democratic Party takes us minorities.  We need someone to do something about the hobos defecating on the sidewalks and to remove the homeless encampments that seem to sprout like toxic toadstools all over the place.

No one wants to walk around piles of festering fecal matter all over the place much less skid off the sidewalks and into the gutters because of slimy, wet, patches of urine.  No one wants aggressive panhandlers pursuing one for 3-4 blocks demanding spare change, and no one wants to see addicts collapsed in doorways or alleyways, drool running down their chins and into their laps, it is not the way the world should be nor should it ever be- not if we are supposed to be the eighth largest economy in the world.

One day, the people of the dying cities of California are going to rise up and there is only going to be one direction for them to go.  They are going to storm the mansions of scum such as Maxine Waters, they are going to leap over the walls of the Pelosi estate, they are going to storm into the gaudy, gilded mansions of the Democratic elites and are going to carry them out, toss them about, and then string them upside-down from the lampposts.

I do not wish this outcome for anyone; however, when you neglect people the way the California Democrats do, it is the inevitable outcome and I must say, a much deserved and just one.

Now, I only have my gut to go on but I believe 2020 is going to be one of those elections where the people of our country are going to make their feelings clear, extremely clear, to the ruling class neglecting them and their concerns.

The Dems have only themselves to blame for they are the ones who worked long and hard to create an unhinged base that no longer will accept any rational explanations about anything.  Hence why people like Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren (and others of their ilk) are doing so well.  Hence why people like Michael Bennett, Steve Bullock, John Delaney, and other more reasonable, moderate ones cannot get a moment’s notice anywhere.

Some Democrats seem okay with Michael Bloomberg entering the race, it’s almost as if they can ‘accept him’ because the other ones are absolutamente loco and will only destroy the party.  I saw that poor sap, Robert De Niro accepting the idea Bloomberg might be ‘it’ because compared with the others, they think (pray) he will be able to beat President Trump and to bring about normalcy once again.

Personally, I think Bloomberg’s strategy of going after Super Tuesday instead of trying to compete in ALL primary states is as bonkers as was Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Florida strategy’ back in 2008.  Bloomberg stands as much chance as Tom Steyer at winning the nomination and Steyer has ZERO chance at becoming vice president much less president.

Amigos, the Democrats are going to fail.  The question is, HOW MUCH are they going to fail?  We will meet again in mid-2020 and will reassess our odds but I am banking on a 48-49 state landslide victory NOT in their favor.  Unless something changes so completely that Trump is not on the ticket, I cannot foresee what that might be; however, if something did happen to Trump, Pence would win the landslide because unless the Dems go with a sane candidate, their chances of winning are ZIP.

Have a wonderful Christmas, a delightful New Year’s Eve, and we will be back in action before you know it- good Lord looking out for me.  Remain positive as that is all we have- siendo positivo ya que es todo lo que tenemos.
