SPRING SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,135 AT THE AICP-END



522 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



Today, I share with you the 2020 Democratic Party’s primary debate schedule and the candidates…
San Luis Obispo, CA, 06-01-2019 Saturday:  Welcome to the first day of June, I cannot believe how swiftly this year is flowing by.  Before we know it, the Democratic Primary Debates will be upon us and Elizondo and I will be watching them, along with our employees as we have televisions in the kitchen and in various other work-stations.  They should be a whole lotta fun, because for the first time, we will see them going at one another because at some point, like fighting cocks, they will have to go for the jugulars of their various opponents.  Here is the schedule of Democratic Party 2020 Primary Debates:
1.      The NBC News Democratic Primary Debate, Miami Beach, Florida.  Here are the candidates for the inaugural 2020 debate:
a.      Former Vice President and Senator Joe Biden, Delaware,
b.      Senator Cory Booker, New Jersey
c.      Governor Stephen Clark Bullock, Montana  
d.      Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Indiana
e.      Former Mayor and HUD Secretary (under Barack Obama) Julian Castro, Texas
f.       Former Congressman John Delaney, Maryland
g.      Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, Hawaii
h.      Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, New York
i.        Senator Kamala Harris, California
j.        Former Governor John Hickenlooper, Colorado
k.      Governor Jay Inslee, Washington
l.        Senator Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota
m.   Former Congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, Texas
n.      Congressman Tim Ryan, Ohio
o.      Senator Bernie Sanders, Vermont
p.      Congressman Eric Swalwell, California
q.      Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts
r.       Marianne Williamson, Texas
s.       Andrew Yang, California
t.        Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York
Now these are the people whom I believe qualify to be in the first debate.  The fact that it covers two days, I do not know if they are going to put all of the ones who supposedly have made it into the first debate on one stage or they are going to divide them between the two days. 
To qualify for the debates, candidate must have one-percent or higher in each of three polls (the first three primary states): Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina and/or Nevada. 
The second criteria is that each candidate must have 65,000 unique donors across the United States or a minimum of 200 in each of 20 states.  I guess each of the ones listed so far has met this threshold but one must wonder about some of them such as Congressman Ryan, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, and Governors Hickenlooper and Jay Inslee. 
The other candidates still thrashing around are Miramar, Florida, Mayor Wayne Messam, former Alaskan Senator Mike Gravel (did not even know he was running until today), Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, and Colorado Senator Michael Bennett. 
My assumption is that if all of them somehow make it into the fray, the first night of the debates will feature the top draws who have both the one-percent of the polls as well as the necessary number of required donors while the others will compete on the second night.  It will be interesting to say the least.
Although DNC Chairman Tom Perez celebrates the number of candidates, he has to feel like the ringmaster at a three-ring circus.  It is going to be ugly as the requirements for the successive debates will continue growing tighter and tighter.  The amount of political bloodshed will be astounding, to say the least. 
As of now, the second debate is scheduled for July 30 and 31 on CNN from Detroit, Michigan; the third is set to take place on ABC, to be determined; number four will occur in October; number five in November; the sixth sometime in December and then we arrive at the New Year. 
The seventh debate is set for January 2020; the eighth sometime in late January/early February; the ninth and tenth sometime in the same month; the eleventh in March 2020; and the twelfth and final one sometime in April 2020. 
It is going to be fun to watch and we do not yet know if we know who all the candidates will be.  Some speculate that failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams might yet toss her hat into the race as others still think that Michelle or Hillary might leap in.  I guess we shall see.  I can make NO predictions on who will continue until we watch the first debate. 
I will say this, however: WHOEVER makes it through ALL twelve debates will be a formidable debater to say the least; President Trump should prepare accordingly.
Thank you and see you tomorrow- I will go over each of the candidates as I see them.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:








Peter Gabriel released his next effort, his second ‘best of’ compilation entitled “Peter Gabriel Revisited,” which came out on November 10, 1992.  Other than the soundtracks, this effort contains music culled from his first two solo albums.  If you have yet to get in on the ground floor of this influential artist, this is how you do so.  Please, seek the album out by visiting whatever site you do for the absolute best in music.  You will be glad you did so seek it out now and give it a good listen- you will enjoy it.


SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Sunday, September 09, 2012 Blog Post:






The follow-up to the highly successful “Amigos” by the Santana band, hit record store shelves on January 10, 1977, “Festival.”  It contained a tune that received a great deal of airplay, “Try a Little Harder.”  Awesome tune, to be sure.  Joining the namesake of the band were Leon Pattillo (vocals/keyboards), Tom Coster (keyboards), Paul Jackson (bass), Gaylord Birch (drums), Raul Rekow and Jose “Chepito” Areas (assorted percussion), and several others.  This is a delightful album, we hope you will investigate for the sake of your own ears as it is a superlative addition to any growing album collection.  One thing can be said about Mr. Santana is that he NEVER fails to please his fans.

Posted @ the Thursday, July 03, 2014 Blog Post B:




The next album by the Yardbirds - “Roger the Engineer” aka “Over Under Sideways Down,” came out on July 18, 1966.  This album is the only one to feature Jeff Beck (lead guitar/vocals), exclusively along with Keith Relf (vocals, harmonica and percussion), Chris Dreja (rhythm guitar), Paul Samwell-Smith (bass/backing vocals), and Jim McCarty (drums/backing vocals).  It is amazing that none of the group’s albums were BIG SELLERS because when it came to musicianship and guitar, there were no bands that could compare.  For the first time, all five band members wrote all the tunes in conjunction with one another and “Over Under Sideways Down” and “Jeff’s Boogie” rank among the top all-time greatest rock-and-roll songs.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting whatever site you choose for nothing but the best in rock music.  You can thank us later.
