- 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad. The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere. Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
- 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries but they won’t. They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country. We must thwart them.
- 2020 Memorial Day Monday B: In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 94,558 confirmed cases, 3,785 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which demonstrates the scumbag Gov. Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders. In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty. Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism! Free California! Free Washington! Free Tibet! Free Hong Kong! Free Macau! Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)! Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On June 05, 1995, Pink Floyd released a new live album, this one a two-CD effort that featured more of the band’s tunes from its career. It is a fabulous album and a film also exists that demonstrates how powerful this group was and why they are so important in the annals of music history. We love this album and know you will, too, which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and to add it to your collection. We know you will love it as much as we do and it’s a shame that Roger Waters could not have been enticed to return to the fold.

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.
