984th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!
HUMP DAY!  
Bakersfield, CA, 08-01-2013 Thursday: Welcome to the place where we cover the hot topics of the day and then some!  This is the Hump Day edition of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, the place where we do the unique by doing it in an unusual manner, we are the number one blog related to foodservice politics and that means that everyone who comes here participates in a joyous experience.  Last week, it was becoming clearer and clearer that our administration would truly love to get involved in Syria’s civil war.  I rather recall a time when President George W. Bush sought approval to invade the nation of Iraq as far back as late 2002 and then in 2003, after the Turks denied us the northern border for the second part of our invasion, he invaded them anyway.  Man, did the Democrats in the Senate wail and moan, screaming about the lack of legality, the lack of forethought, and oh, woe with the Bush Administration.  When they did not turn up a single weapon of mass destruction, aka ‘WMDs,’ the Dems went wild.  From that moment onward, it was ‘Bush this’ and ‘Bush that,’ and nuts as diverse as the loser Cindy Sheehan, Rachel Maddow, and others pounded the impeachment drum twenty-four hours a day.  Yet, Mr. Bush went forward with his Iraqi War, one I did not and still to this day do not agree with, the only reason I bring it up now is because of the lack of any media attention to Mr. Obama’s ideas regarding the Syrian regime.         
The Syrian Flag  
I recall something more that I think means a great deal when it comes to talk of invading Syria or at least, putting a no-fly zone overhead (something that would hundreds of aircraft costing approximately a billion dollars per month), I wonder what in hell is wrong with the President?  Does he truly believe that sacrificing American flyers over Syria is something we need to do when it’s clear that their allies, the Iranians, Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Russians are keeping them afloat.  They have a sophisticated anti-aircraft system in much the same way the North Vietnamese did during the Vietnam War, I foresee our brave aviators being shot down, transferred to Iran or worse, to China, the place where many of our MIAs reportedly vanished during the Vietnam conflict.  They took the flyers with technical knowledge of our modern aircraft and we have never seen them again, something that could happen once again.  Moreover when CBS News reported that any involvement in Syria would cost the United States at least a billion dollars a month, how in God’s name can we even consider doing something as crazy as this when it led directly to Mr. Obama coming to office?  What if the man who followed him is worse than he is thanks to an ever worse American economy.  There is an even worse possibility that our nation could truly collapse and if this is not the attempt at squeezing out another term (or two) ala Franklin Delano Roosevelt, than what is it?     
President Barack Obama
Granted, Mr. Obama could not run for another term unless he did one or two things.  He would either have to push for a new constitutional convention in which, to either overturn the 22nd Amendment or he would have to issue an executive order or worse, a fiat, in which, he uses his power to nullify the amendment.  I do believe that the American people would not accept that and would at some point, take to the streets to put an end to an event such as this.  However, on the other hand—if he convinces the Republicans that legalizing 12-30 million illegal aliens is good for them, too—then with those numbers and the constitutional convention, he could overturn the term limit amendment.   This is how power is seized and liberty lost, this is how a nation loses its moral fiber, its liberties, and its God-given inalienable rights.  This is how a constitution is overturned and dictators come to power, we have seen it before, we will see it again, and the worse thing is that not even the United States is free from issues such as this.  The very fact that the president won the last election should tell us all something because had not the Internal Revenue Service messed with the Tea Party groups, I do not believe that he would have won reelection, he would have gone down in ignominy to Governor Romney.  There, I said it, sue me, I don’t give a damn, the facts are the facts and yet, what do we have when we should be discussing that issue?  We have the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman issue, we have Paula Deen, we have a whole bunch of other crap but no Benghazi, no IRS scandal, nothing. 
Paula Deen—Punching Bag for the Far Left
The blog I have chosen for today is one that Vicky Mazarotti and Charles Smithenstein wrote together back on June 22, 2009 and which appeared in the original blog at Choseit.com.  It has to do with the Middle East, seemingly America’s number one problematic area.  The fact that the Obama Administration is going to revive the Middle East Peace Negotiations is yet another attempt to accomplish the impossible. 
CLASSIC BLOGPOST OF THE DAY FROM THE ‘ORIGINAL’ ELEMENTAL NEWS OF THE DAY:
Elemental News of the Day Commentary for Monday, June 22, 2009 by V. Vicky Mazarotti and the Charles Smithenstein
“Peace in the Middle East and the Hard Work of the Bush Administration”
How is it that two Semitic peoples that have perhaps one of the longest historical interactions be so at odds with one another? Why is it that Jews and Muslims cannot get along? Both are monotheistic and both are rooted in common law. Shared codes of morality, ethics, and scruples influence both. Although the two faiths differ in their place and time, many of the greatest individuals-Noah, Abraham, and Moses-are recognized as important personages. [i]
The Jews await the Messiah, the Christians have Jesus, and Muhammad is the final and foremost prophet to come (for the Muslims). Of the three religions that were given birth to in the "Cradle of Civilization,"[ii] only one is in conflict with the other two. This paper deals with the relations between the first and the last of these three major faiths and leaves us with but one question to ask: Why is it that the Hebrews and the Muslims are intertwined in a dance of death much like the mongoose and king cobra?
What are the obstacles to peace? Other than an interaction based upon retaliation for every real or imagined offense, there has been little or no opportunity for Israelis and Palestinians to come together. There are a host of minor hurdles such as the lack of historical perspective, an attitude of "have and have-nots," and feelings of degradation. The major impediment to peace has been human in form and that man was none other than Yasser Arafat. My thesis is this: Arafat has been the major obstacle to Mid-East peace and now more than ever the two sides have a golden opportunity to stop the bombings, shootings, and demolition that has long characterized the region.
The Arabs have tried to oust the Jews from modern-day Israel since 1948. Three fierce but bloody wars have led to a loss of territory each time and still the Arabs would try to beat the Israelis if they could.[iii] Whatever claim was once held by the Islamists to Palestine has long since been invalidated. Likewise, the Jews deserve one hundred percent of America's support because America has always been associated with the underdog in a fight that is at once both moral and just. Yet, the Americans have made ample headway in trying to hammer out a peace that is as good for the Arabs as it is for the Jews. Every president since Harry S. Truman (with the recent exception of President George W. Bush) has made the attempt to treat Arafat as a head of state.[iv]
President Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon have refused to recognize Arafat as a head of state; in fact, he has been viewed as having been nothing more than a stateless terrorist at best and an unmitigated murderer at the worst. Now that he is dead, many European leaders as well as old State Department hands feel that the United States should rush in and lobby for change. Nevertheless, Bush and Sharon want to wait and see what changes the post-Arafat Palestinian State will encompass. Will Mahmoud Abbas make an attempt at peace or will it be the continued suppuration of the intifada? Peace in the region depends upon exigencies but one thing is certain-were Arafat still alive, it would be "business as usual" (McGeary 11-22-2004:44-9).
One argument held by Arafat and the Arabs is that the Jews have no right to the land upon which, Israel exists. In order to validate this statement, one has first to look at the historical perspective before formulating a conclusion. When the Second World War finally ground to a conclusion in August 1945, the British government could easily have stripped the Arabs of any claim of "birthright" but did not. Instead, they were offered a "partition plan" that in theory would have been fair to all. Conversely, the Arabs could not find it in themselves to accept this magnanimous offer, but NO! For them, it was all or nothing, which more or less is what they received. Whatever faults may be heaped at the doorstep of the Western Powers-Imperialism, Colonialism, Racism, Christian Theism-the British made an attempt to implement what would have been a fair and equitable plan (Dershowitz 2003:32-8).
President Woodrow Wilson
The Balfour Declaration of 1917 was a powerful document in that its goals were far-reaching. Unfortunately, in order for the document to have had a bite worse than its bark, it required the successful establishment of a strong League of Nations. Sadly, with the failure of President Wilson to get the League past his senate enemies and his subsequent collapse placed incertitude upon a noble idea but had it met with success, a strong possibility existed that the Jews might have achieved their homeland much sooner. Furthermore, as utopian as it might seem, was it possible that a homogenous world could have brought peace to a chronically volatile part of the world? Hence, without the participation of the United States, the League was nothing more than a toothless paper tiger that pretty much rubber-stamped the Second World War into existence twenty some-odd years later (Roark et al 2002:796-800).
Following the First World War, British Foreign Minister Lord Arthur Balfour drew up a plan that guaranteed the Israelis a homeland and what's more, they earned it by fighting for the victorious side in both world wars. Moreover, whatever territory Israel has gained since its inception in 1947 has been at the forfeiture of its enemies who have attacked it. By the same token, the Arabs actively supported the Axis Powers in World War II, which negated for obvious reasons any claim they may have once possessed (Dershowitz 2003:32-5). The Arab nations achieved their independence but were confronted with the cold facts of life:
"Although the tiny new state of Israel, surrounded by an implacable Arab enemy, acutely felt its vulnerability, the Arabs realized in the loss of Palestine that independence did not equal power" (Mackey 2002:85).
In addition, had the Arabs and the Axis been successful, the Final Solution would have been franchised to the Middle East just as if it was a McDonald's franchise but rather then flipping burgers, they would have been flipping the switches of gas chambers. Dore Gold writes in his book, Hatred's Kingdom the following:
"For many Arab radicals, hatred of Israel stems from its being perceived as a western outpost" (Gold 2003:10).
Dore Gold
Israel is not the blame for what transpires in the Middle East on any given day. The territory that they were given has not been of any major consequence. If anything, Jews began to settle in Palestine pre-World War I and brought progress to an otherwise loosely populated and bucolic region. They rented land from absentee property owners and through hard work and sweat-achieved headway. In fact, the Jews worked with the Arabs of the area and the benefits were shared by all (Dershowitz 2003:39-44).
Yasser Arafat as head of the Palestine Liberation Organization has been one of the chief architects charged with the destruction of the Jewish State. No matter his public persona, there has never been a time in which, he has not actively lusted over the Jewish corpse. Yet, I reiterate, Arafat was feted as a head of state particularly in the capitals of Europe. One can only wonder why a man with so much, innocent blood on his hands has been seen as one imbued with culture and class? Apparently, murder is an acceptable tool of state but what I ponder then is why grand larceny gets a pass? The condition of the Palestinian people has been simply dreadful yet, never have I heard a critical word in regard to the lifestyle of the Chairman of the PLO.[v]
Yasser Arafat—Dead PLO Chairman
Arafat has lived what I would conclude to have been very hedonistic. His popularity expanded and declined in an almost cyclical manner in the rest of the world but NEVER at home among his people. He may have said that he would put dampers on the violence but in the end, it was only so much doublespeak. While Israel, the United States, and Europe ebbed and flowed in their assessment of the chairperson, he never had neglected his irregular thugs as they fought the intifada on the streets of Israeli cities. His money, power, and prestige in the Middle East never waned and it is difficult for non-Arabic peoples to understand his allure. In addition, because of him, it is estimated that 3,500 or more Palestinians and at least 1,000 plus Israelis have died because of him (Derfner and Toameh 11-15-04:72).
Yasser Arafat—Middle East’s Number One Terrorist
In 2000, Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia served as the mediator between Arafat, Israel, and President Bill Clinton. Since the formation of the Jewish State, the main hindrance to a comprehensive peace has been the "right of return." Theoretically, this is the guaranteed right of ALL refugees to be able to return to their land of origin. In reality, there are no Jews who have a wish to return to lands outside of Israel where they would exist in "Dhemmi" or second-class citizenship but there is a great number of Palestinians who would love to return to Israel (Palestine). This has been one of the major points of contention because if tens of thousands of people who claim citizenship in Israel (Palestine) and were allowed to return "home," the democratic nation would be swamped with refugees. The Jews would find themselves a minority in their own nation. President George W. Bush had this to say:
President George W. Bush
"A Palestinian state and a secure Israel could be reached only by one path: the path of democracy, reform, and the rule of law,' Bush said" (Richter and Vieth 11-13-04:1). Alan Dershowitz estimates in his book, A Case for Israel that there are several million people who claim descent in the land occupies and that it is extremely unrealistic for these people who have these aspirations. In fact, Mr. Dershowitz has the following to say about this critical issue:
A Case for Israel—Awesome Book
"As a resolution passed by the refugee conference at Homs, Syria, made clear in 1952 [that] 'Any discussion aimed at a solution of the Palestinian problem which will not be based on ensuring the refugees' right to annihilate Israel will be regarded as a desecration of the Arab people and [therefore] an act of treason'" (Dershowitz 2003:238-9).
Ariel Sharon—Greatest Israeli Leader
At Camp David II and at Taba, Egypt in 2000, President Clinton had Prime Minister Ehud Barak ready to "give up the farm," so-to-speak. Unfortunately, I view Barak as having been a "Clinton-dupe," because never before had Israel put in play upon the table ninety percent of what Arafat and the PLO stipulated must be there before peace between the two world bodies could be realized.[vi] What other requirements existed besides the vaunted "right of return?" (Dershowitz 2003:117-22).
Yasser Arafat—NO Friend of the Jews
The option in place of the Palestinian "right of return" is compensation for the loss of land. What's more, the Israelis offered to give up almost all of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Furthermore, the Israelis offered territory to Egypt, Jordan, and even the Golan Heights to Syria if that nation would only agree to peace. U.N. Resolution 242 has demanded this and it be offered. Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia encouraged Arafat to take the offer as it was the best deal that Israel could ever offer without transferring its sovereignty to the Arabs and Arafat turned it down (Dershowitz 2003:204-6).
The Saudi Arabian Flag
Therefore, the chair exposed his soul when after having been urged by the ninth American president with whom he had dealt; the princes of Saudi Arabia and other interested third parties and launched the second intifada. A master manipulator, within a short period of time, Arafat blamed his refusal upon the Israelis and the world bought it. Once again, the nightly news on world television depicted the "David and Goliath" struggle of bloodied and dying Palestinians hurtling rocks at Israeli armored vehicles. The world was treated to the grief-stricken relatives crying in the street as the "fascist" Israeli bulldozers brought the houses crumbling down of the suicide bombers families. When the Israeli victims lay in the streets dying, no one cared-after all; the Israelis were the "aggressors" in this conflict.
Ariel Sharon—Gifted Statesman
Finally, the collapse of the peace process at both Camp David and Taba can be attributed directly to Mr. Arafat, the "would-be Hitler." His actions in refusing the comprehensive plan were to prolong the violence that was killing Palestinians at the rate of at least 3:1. What was it that he gained from this bloodshed? What was it that he achieved? Surely, his life cannot have been enjoyable; especially during his "imprisonment" at his Ramallah headquarters in the last two years of his life-particularly with the barrels of Israeli tanks pointing down his throat. Was it wealth? Perhaps so (Beyer 11-22-2004:50-4).
Mahmoud Abbas—New Palestinian Leader
Whether or not one is a Bush fan does not matter-one has only to recognize that in 2001, a "new sheriff was in town." He unveiled his "Road map for Peace." To follow it, however, neither Bush nor Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon would deal with Yasser Arafat. For the first time in his long life, Arafat was confronted with a new tactic-he was being treated as the unmitigated terrorist that he was. In effect, he was locked out of the house!
The Israeli Flag
Arafat was a man of many things-at least to himself if not to others. He was definitely a hero to the Palestinian people-but what does that say about them? The Israelis have of course done things that need to be curtailed. They cause a certain amount of their own problems by the ultraconservative wing that is determined to continue the establishment of settlements at breakneck pace where they are forbidden to do so. A common charge placed at the feet of the Jews is ironic and despicable but it is possible to understand the subtext; that the Jews are the new "Fascists, the NAZIS" which is deplorable. However, from one minuscule point, based upon the actions of this one small group and the number of dead Palestinians then one can understand the reasoning behind the charge.[vii]

The Nazi Flag
Yet, the Israelis are not NAZIS, if anything; the nation has always acted in self-defense. Most Israelis desire peace. Evidence of this is seen in the willingness of the peace process in 2000-I reiterate, Ehud Barak was ready to give just about EVERYTHING. What might have happened had Arafat accepted? What was it that Arafat desired-was it martyrdom?[viii] What drives the Palestinian people to so willingly proffer their lives so? I believe that desperation, built upon crushing poverty, of Third World status, and of no hope for the children, am intrinsic. Why has this situation been allowed to continue, especially when the Israelis are ready to pay enormous sums of money too not only recompense the Palestinians for their losses but to provide economic assistance as well for their future? Why do they remain impoverished?
Ehud Barak
I will tell you why-the final charge leveled at Yasser Arafat is that he was a rapacious thief, guilty of BILKING his own people of perhaps BILLIONS of dollars, much of it American. An article in the 11-22-2004 edition of Time states that the "financial empire" over which, Arafat ruled to have been as much as three billion dollars, which at the time of his death last year was estimated to be a sum of at least one billion dollars. I can only ask one question: why was this money not put to the good of the Palestinian people rather than having had them live in the squalor of refugee camps? It seems that money easily came to his hands:
The Norwegian Flag
"The Oslo peace process provided a brief windfall for the Palestinians, bringing Arafat $4 billion in donations from the U.S., the European Union, Japan and sales tax that was gathered by Israel that was passed on to him. However, much of that was wasted or skimmed by corrupt Arafat associates. When a Palestinian Authority audit exposed the corruption in 1997, Arafat ordered future audits to be kept secret" (Rees 11-22-2004:46-7).
The Japanese Flag
His policy was to retain militants as opposed to building hospitals for the people. This sums it up in a nutshell: "Arafat only cared for the people he brought with him [in 1994] from Tunisia. They came here with nothing, and all they wanted was to build their villas and get rich." So said Palestinian butcher, Mohammed Hussein, a 60 year old man living in the city of Jelzoun when queried for his view of the PLO hierarchy (Derfner and Toameh 11-15-2004:73-4).
The Palestinian Flag
A final point in favor of Israel which although it may seem humorous but is not-is the fact that whatever the Israelis do to protect their borders-namely the construction of the wall is criticized much more loudly. The Arabs can slaughter Israelis everyday but let the Jews respond automatically leads to chastisement if not outright condemnation by the WORLD! The legitimacy of this statement can be seen in the picture essay, "Walling off the Peace" in the 12-22-2003 edition of Time magazine. It depicts the anguish endured by the Palestinians daily. For instance one picture of a Palestinian lad (with his pet bird in a cage) crying before the wall. Worse, yet, is the ally of the Israelis, President Bush saying: [last month having warned Israel] "not to 'prejudice' peace talks by building 'walls and fences'" (Rees 12-22-2003:37-41). Moments such as these are what Arafat lived for!
Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas
In conclusion, the process of Middle East peace has a new and perhaps a final chance at coalescing in the hands of the new Prime Minister, Mahmoud Abbas in conjunction with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. What can we expect? Is Abbas at the age of 69 strong enough to control the more radical elements of his potential nation? The structure of the organization to which, he was elected is rotten to the core but with the right help from the two men who seem to genuinely want to work with him-Bush and Sharon-a glimmer of hope might still exist.
Unfortunately, one recent bombing and one recent shooting have marred the picture and have removed whatever gossamer existed. Are these the dying throes of an old, evil beast or is business going to continue unabated and as usual? The world can only wonder. I believe that with the removal of the number one anathema to peace, Yasser Arafat that a chance for success still remains. I cannot believe that Mahmoud Abbas can desire this fratricide to continue. I hope that without the old "dervish" that maybe the world can sidestep Armageddon. Then again-maybe not. Is that not what we are supposed to face? Gainsaid, perhaps with the removal of one of the principal "angels of darkness,” humankind may still have a chance if the lamb and the lion can lie down together in two states lying side-by-side in Israel and Palestine.

Notes:

[i] Jesus is a prophet held in high esteem by the Islamic faith. The Koran holds six prophets-Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad-to be the epitome of the vast multitude dispatched by Allah to serve his purposes. Jesus is the fifth of the six but only Muhammad, the sixth and final has more precedence. For Muslims, however, Jesus is NOT the Messiah nor is he the "Son of God." Furthermore, the Christians have so debased their faith that they do Jesus a disservice by their heresy and impure ways. (Source: Understanding the Koran 2004 by Mateen Elass). ISBN 0-310-24812-4.
[ii] See Cradle & Crucible: History and Faith in the Middle East. National Geographic Books-2002. Collection of essays. ISBN 0-7922-6597-1.
[iii] The War of Israeli Independence was fought shortly after Israel's declaration of independence in 1948. The Six-Day War happened in 1967 and the Yom Kippur War was fought in 1973. See Alan Dershowitz' book, A Case for Israel (ISBN 0-471-46502-x) for general information on all three or Six Days of War by Michael B. Oren (ISBN 0-345-46192-4 for specific information on the war that has defined much of the modern Middle East.
[iv] According to James L. Roark et al. Writing in the History 17 B textbook, The American Promise Volume II: From 1865 (ISBN 0-312-39418-7) tells us that U.S. Presidential Middle East policy has differed as each man who has held our highest office (989-90). That is the one drawback that has characterized our form of government-long term friends and allies as well as enemies never can never truly coordinate plans longer than each four-year presidential term.
[v] The article in the November 22nd, 2004 issue of Time that the monthly salary of the chairperson was $200,000 a month, which, he dutifully sent to his now widowed wife, Suha. Furthermore, the article by Matt Rees tells us that Arafat was, "guilty of skimming $2 million a month from the gasoline trade in the territories."(Rees 2004:46-7).
[vi] Barak under the auspices of President Clinton was ready to: 1) give the Palestinian people "between 94 and 96 percent of the West Bank;" 2) "all of the Gaza Strip;" 3) Israel would give up "1-to-3 percent of its land in exchange for 4-to-6 percent that it would retain for a security buffer;" and 4) Israel would satisfy the U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 through the return of "territories but not all territories." Barak was ready to give up still more in exchange for peace: 5) "Arab Jerusalem would be the capital of the Palestinian State as well as: 6) "control over all of East Jerusalem, the Arab Quarter of the Old City;" and 7) control over the ENTIRE TEMPLE MOUNT." (Source: Dershowitz 2003:109-110).
[vii] Do not misunderstand-the charge that the Jews are the new "fascists" or "Nazis" is nothing with which, I agree. What I am trying to do is to follow the reasoning behind the charge. The excesses of the ultraconservative Jews in their determination to forge ahead sans all criticisms is not only foolish, it is intransigent. When a group lends itself so admirably to the propaganda of the enemy, it has to be brought under control.
[viii] Martyrdom is as much of the Islamic faith as it was at its inception. Although Arafat was Sunni, he was no more religious than Saddam Hussein. Both were very secular and used religion as a prop. If anything, Arafat desired wealth and was willing to SACRIFICE himself in its pursuit.

CANNED HEAT
CANNED HEAT were one of the great blues-boogie bands to burst out of Los Angeles, California, in the mid-1960’s and featured a great lineup of musicians such as Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson (guitar, slide guitar, harp, & vocals), Bob “the Bear” Hite (vocals and harp), and Henry “Sunflower” Vestine (lead guitar and vocals).  Added to that was Larry “the Mole” Taylor on bass and Fito de la Parra on the drums.  In addition to a hardcore attack on the blues and boogie numbers, they also squeezed in some psychedelic sounds and their greatest moment was performing live at the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival at Yasgur’s Farm in Upstate New York.

XXVI. Thursday, 06-30-2011: “King Biscuit Flour Hour—Live with Canned Heat and Hollywood Fats 1979”:  this CD came out in 1995 and featured a great show from 1979, one in which, the band was still smoking.  I love the King Biscuit Flour Hour series of albums because their concerts are always the best!   

XXVII. Friday, 07-01-2011: “Live at Woodstock 10th Anniversary 1979”:  this CD finally came out in 1996 and features the 10th anniversary appearance by Canned Heat back on Yasgur’s Farm doing what they do best: boogie!  Use the link of the preceding blogpost so you can go directly to Amazon.com and buy it; you’ll be so glad you did!    

XXVIII.    Saturday: 07-02-2011:”Live at the Turku Rock Festival 1971” in 1996, this CD came out featuring a show in which, Bob the Bear, Henry Vestine, and Fito de la Parra appeared with Joel Scott Hill in Finland.  A great CD, I highly recommend this one as I do believe that you will fall in love with the riotous sounds of the group!  

XXIX.   Sunday: 07-03-2011: “the Heat Brothers 1984” this 1996 release is yet another new studio-recording, one I highly recommend.  The transition from the earlier days is still evident as the band improves with each release. I think that true fans of this band will fall in love with this particular album, just as I have!

XXX.      Monday: 07-04-2011: “Canned Heat Blues Band”:” in 1996, yet another awesome album came out, this one featuring the history of the band for all to not only see, but to hear as well  Canned Heat is amazing in that with the major musical members of the band dead and gone, the band still continues dishing out the goods with each release.  Come on, join the band, let’s get rocking and digging the Heat!  

Canned Heat
When we complete doing Canned Heat, I think we will begin doing some of the albums by Big Brother and the Holding Company, the band in which, Janis Joplin first met the world.  They were one of the BIG FIVE San Francisco bands of the 1960’s and early 1970’s, until she abandoned them to go solo.  Then, they rapidly lost their stature but managed to regroup at some point in the 1990’s.   I think that you will enjoy all of their music as they were indeed one of the best bands of all time!

We have touted the AARC Technology Company here in Bakersfield, CA, and must add the Nerds on Call.com folks.  Without them keeping our blog up-and-running, there is no telling where we would be now.  We have a great many problematic issues here at the AICP-END because even with the best security systems in the world, malware and other terrible fecal materials manage to penetrate the blogsite.  Do yourself a favor, hire the best, and note, you can have online help via a remote button on your desktop for just $25 per month!  Get in contact with the Nerds now!  Here’s another note: do NOT do business with Galkos Construction, Inc., those people are nothing but crooks as if you lease your system, you will never pay it off, plus you have to pay them for excess energy produced by your system, the electric company does not buy all of it nor do they!  AVOID GCI AT ALL COSTS; DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE CROOKS!
BALL
          We are selling recipes all the time and you can order things you would like copies of simply by mailing us your name, address, the recipe you would like and a check for $1.00.  You can buy an entire week’s worth of recipes when we do a series simply by sending us a check or money order (no cash please!) for $20 and we will have it out to you in the next day’s mail.  Please become a part of the AICP-END by sending us your names, addresses, and information and we will welcome all of you with open arms!
LIVE
          To buy paintings, recipes, or full article series, please send us your information by mailing us at P.O. Box #20669, Bakersfield, CA, 93309-0669.  You can call about paintings at 661-834-5185; we will take all calls and provide to you as much information as is available.  It is time that we begin taking the next step and to immortalize Beverly Carrick for eternity and begin moving towards the establishment of a website of our own! God bless each single one of you amongst our fan base!
METAMORPHOSIS
          That is going to do it for the Hump Day edition of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, I always love this day and since I have been here for more than a month, the light at the end of the tunnel is appearing brighter all of the time.  I hope that you have enjoyed all of the good things we have discussed lately as music, politics, and what’s good for the nation are all of the highest import.  We need to save our nation or we need to watch it slip beneath the waves in the same sense that the British Empire is no more.   Who in their right mind would ever want to see that other than our enemies?  Well, we have three more days in which, to discuss these heated topics and more.  See you tomorrow!                                                                          
EVOLUTION—THE BEST OF IRON BUTTERFLY
Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower. What's more, why not spend some money and purchase an album by Country Joe and the Fish or Iron Butterfly, and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise!  Amazon.com is one of the greatest—if not the ultimate greatest!—online department stores in which, one can find almost everything on the planet.  We love them and they love us and we want all of you to visit them daily, take advantage of their deals on everything from kitchen equipment to cookbooks, CDs, DVDs, and everything else a person could want.  Everything you buy from them puts money into our pockets, which allows us to keep this fine blog up-and-running 24/7/365!  God bless America and God bless Amazon.com!
Thank you!
