FALL SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,337 AT THE AICP-END



321 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



As things now stand, MY vote is going to Trump but let me give the Democrats a tad bit of advice…
Century City, CA 90067, 12-20-2019 Friday:  Well, last night, the Democrats had their debate.  However, I, your beloved host, did not bother watching the crap because I could give a flying f**k what they say.  Sure, some of the interactions are fun to watch and I saw the highlights on Fox News while drinking a beer at the end of the day and that is enough.  What I can tell you is this: I feel sorry for DNC boss man Tom Perez because even though the field- at least those on the debate stage- is narrowing, he still has far too many outriders outside the fray who are leeching off resources, cash contributions, and support.  How sad is that?   
Let’s see, they had “Smoking” Joe Biden, phony redskin Liz Warren, they had Sheldon Cooper, I mean Pete Buttigieg, they had their only person of color (and for color conscious Democrats, I don’t think Asians count) Andrew Yang, ‘Green Jeans’ Tom Steyer, Amy “The Nose” Klobuchar, and “Blazing” Bernie Sanders.  Woo-hoo. 
Now, loads of other Dems failed to qualify.  I suspect Kamala Harris might have been able to but apparently, she was so cash-strapped that she had to bail out two weeks before the next debate.  Couldn’t even make it to the 19th which might have given her a new lease on life had she made a good showing.  Too bad for her. 
Now, let’s see who is outside looking in.  First, we have Michael Bloomberg, former New York City  mayor, the man President Trump calls “Little Mike.”  He meets none of the three standards- (1) required number of unique donors; (2) state polls with six percent or more; and (3) state or national polls with four percent or more.  Yet, “Little Mike” is in the running as an outrider because the man is as wealthy as Daddy Warbucks. 
Yet, Bloomberg is upsetting the proverbial applecart as the man has money, vast reserves of money.  Makes me wish I had started a newswire when I was a youngster, perhaps I could be there like he is.  Still, millions of Democrats are appalled at this man elbowing his way in because he is spilling cash all over the place like a teenager in a whore house.  In essence, he is out-Tom-Steyer-ing Tom Steyer and most of the Democrats I know detest Green Jeans. 
Then, there is the sad case of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, wailing and moaning about lack of diversity on the debate stage.  Ain’t that always the truth- the Dems bellow about identity politics and then they have white folks and one Asian dude in the mix.  Poor Cory, find a way to qualify for the NEXT matchup and get your butt on the stage.
Then, you have the “Tex-Mex” Julian Castro, he who tried to demonstrate that “Smoking Joe” ain’t all there in the mind and like Kamala Harris who, before Julian attacked Joe on his history of supporting bussing, plummeted to the bottom,  No matter what you think of Kamala or Julian, the case is there that IF you attack “Smoking Joe,” your stock is going to drop- precipitously.  Avoid doing that until YOU HAVE TO DO IT.
Then, there is poor old Tulsi Gabbard.  While she comes close to meeting some of the requirements, the fact that her enemies are tying her to Vladimir Putin and Russia does not bode well for her.  In fact, Tulsi should NOT have declined to seek another term in the House because after 2020, she will be on the way out.  Sucks to be her.
Then, we have Michael Bennett, John Delaney, Marianne Williamson, and Deval Patrick and I thought…Joe Sestak but I am unable to find him so let’s say, “HE’S OUT.”
Bennett, Delaney, and Patrick might be credible challengers for the nomination but they are far too sensible and far too strait laced to garner any interest.  Oh, I know if they took a bold step and had their supporters drop to their knees and then spray a canned of whipped cream down their throats until they choked, perhaps they could get their required numbers up and have a chance. 
Then again, candidate Yang is also running on a platform to ban circumcision so perhaps that is what is keeping the man in the running as he has the penis worshippers’ votes.  All them thar gays running amok around the nation have long sought a ban to the practice that most of us underwent as infants just as they managed to criminalize gay conversion therapy (who would not want to undergo that if they were limp-wristed and walking on the wild side?  I know I sure as hell would- personal choice, people, personal choice). 
IF Yang becomes president, besides getting our thousand bucks a month in our bank accounts every month, all future male infants will not have to undergo the BIG SNIP.  God, what a thing to run on, will we get whipped cream shot down our throats, too, or can we beg off that one?  I sure the f**k hope so.
Then, we hear Hillary chomping at the bit out there, looking for the right invitation to enter the fray and show the other losers how it’s done.  We also hear former President Barack Obama talking about how ‘women make the best leaders’ which can only mean one thing: Michelle is getting ready to give us another Obama term.
Look, I know the Democrats love the guy, I loved him, too, but I heard my colleagues say they could not go Bush-Clinton-Bush-then-Obama-and-then the choice between another Bush or Clinton.  What?  We only have three families from which to choose our presidents.  You must be kidding, which is why we voted for Donald Trump.
Friends, we have no clue as to where we are going to end up in this election or any other.  While I feel for some of the Democrats seeking the nomination who are inhabiting the bottom, all I can say is IF you care about your party and want a future in politics, drop the hell out now and get behind one of the ones who has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. 
If you don’t, YOU and ONLY YOU will be responsible for giving the American people another four years of what you claim not to want: Trump.  Believe me, I know where my vote is going but the sooner you fail to get out of the way and allow Smoking Joe to win the nomination, you guys are going to be the ruination of your party.
Join me tomorrow for the weekend edition.  Thank you and God bless.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:









Colin Blunstone (vocals/guitars) released his next solo album, the illustrious “The Ghost of You and Me,” on March 02, 2009.  From start to finish, this album required more than a decade to complete as the artist put much time into creating it as well as the fact that a revamped Zombies was taking up more of his time.  The music here is very un-Zombie like what with lush arrangements and his amazingly talented voice soaring over and through every track.  If you wish to be transported to another realm, we encourage everyone to see this album out and add it to your collection.  The best place to visit for the absolute best deal is, of course, Amazon.com, where you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you.  We thank you for your patronage.





SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted at the Friday, March 29, 2013 Blog Post:






Today’s album is Frank Zappa’s forty-fifth solo album, “Son of Cheap Thrills,” which came out in 1999 and was the eleventh in an extensive line of posthumous albums.  Like all the rest of Mr. Zappa’s lengthy catalog, this is a fine album and one that shows the amazing versatility possessed by this extremely talented musician.  Take the convenient link posted above, go to Amazon.com and buy it now.—you will be glad you did.

Posted @ the Monday, October 13, 2014 Blog Post A:






Led Zeppelin released a string of bootleg albums in 2014 which many times are unavailable to the fan.  “Destroyer: Live in Cleveland 04-27-1977” came out on October 26, 2014 and you can generally find this one by going to Amazon.com and picking it up there.  Please use the link you find on this page but there are other places you can visit such as RZ Record.  Check them out for an ample collection of hard-to-find music; you will be glad you did.
