BLOG POST #3,215 AT THE AICP-END



442 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



Although Trump irritates one, we can’t argue with all the positives he’s doing for the country
Honolulu, HI 96790, 08-20-2019 Tuesday:  Yesterday, I was reacting to the frustrations that I as a business-owning-and-operating Democrat has in this life.  At times I feel like talking stink about the political landscape and at other times, I feel like being somewhat quiet and peaceful.  I feel I have a need to explain why I seem to jump back and forth between saying positive things about this president and at other times, calling him names or launching barbed harpoons at him.    
Mr. Trump is doing amazing things for the country by building up our economy, something his predecessor, Hawaii-born local boy, Barack Obama, seemingly could not do.  I love the dropping unemployment numbers just as it is high time wages began increasing for far too many people who have seen their wages stagnate or decrease since the mid-to-late 1990s. 
I also approve of his strengthening the border on the Mainland and his sending ICE out into the community to begin rounding up criminal illegal aliens.  God knows we have far too many visa overstays and other illegals in the Islands who sneak in via one-way tickets from the South Pacific, Asia, Europe, and the Mainland. 
It would be great if many of these people found themselves in the ICE dragnet and sent back to their home countries because how many drunken driving arrests and fatalities do we need before we awaken to what must be done?  Deport them.
Where I find myself upset with the president is when he tweets out obnoxious or racist things, celebrates Southern crackers and Proud Boy thugs.  I also find his incessant wars with everyone from the Squad members to members of Congress to Hollywood and whoever else launches barbs at him that seem to go on endlessly.  It is almost as if watching the news at night when I get home after a long day gets the bile going, the dander up, and the anger flowing.  Do we really need the day-in, day-out insults? 
Here is something I pointed out in my post of September 02, 2018, that I hope will explain my outlook and how it continues evolving:
“One does not have to like or approve of Donald Trump to want him to be successful.  We loved Barack Obama but let’s be clear about the mess he left us: a dying economy, a world aflame, disappearing jobs, taxes, rules, and regulations choking the life out of us, and a return to racism.  The choice is clear.”  (La Tigre, 02-September-2018)
The choice is clear, very, very clear.  And even though many of my fellow Democrats including friends and family blasted me and called me out on my views, we must face the facts: President Trump is DOING the things that President Obama told us were impossible to continue doing.  Even worse, he told us this is the way it’s going to be and that he and his administration would manage the decline.  Who wants that?
Here is something else I said in that very same post:
“Those three things {referring back to the previous quote} are WHY it is important that we hold our noses and vote for those who will aid the President in continuing to fix the economy, continuing to lower taxes, and who will give our nation hope again.  It is neither a red or blue thing, it is an American thing and if the economy continues going along as it is, voting for socialists is akin to jumping into a tank full of hungry, great whites.” (La Tigre, 02-September-2018)
This is where we stand: as I discussed yesterday, there are very few Democrats in the race for the White House who actually can do what they swear they will- make America ‘America again.’  Most of them talk a good story, which is fine, but we also want results.
I like Joe Biden, I think he is a respectable choice.  I think he has the ability to return civility to the country, to get people to stop tearing away at one another’s throats, and to give the country moral direction with which, we can make our country respected around the globe.
It seems that every time President Trump is on course to fix a problem such as China, he then turns around and behaves in a wishy-washy manner.  Instead of making things mo bettah, he ends up setting things back to where they started and the entire process must begin all over again.  Same thing with North Korea.
Once President Trump walked into North Korea with the murderous moke by his side, who didn’t see that the katonk with the crazy hairdo was not going to start misbehaving?  I mean, that is Kim Jong Un’s modus operandi, the yobo scores big on the international stage and then begins sending off missiles like it was the NOKO Fourth of July.    Besides- we already lived through one false alarm here on Oah’u.
I like many of the things President Trump has done because I guess at heart, I am somewhat conservative in my progressivism but that is part of being a business owner.  When one is responsible for not only the wellbeing of one’s own family but also of that of their employees, one must exercise caution in all things.  Crazy talk by politicians can cause people like Lalo and me to cross the lines and vote for the other side. 
We do what we must do.  As should all of you.  This next election will be pocket book issues and the other stuff, the FREE stuff, will be a losing ticket for whoever wins the nomination because it is not the job of my family or our business to give away everything free to those who don’t want to work.
Aloha kakahiaka!  Love all of you.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs. 
That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born.  I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. 
Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu.  My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the food service industry.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:








Steve Hackett (guitars/bass/harmonica/vocals) brought in a large assortment of incredibly talented musicians and recorded his next album, a live effort featuring 2 CDs and a DVD recording of the show, “Genesis Revisited- Live at the Royal Albert Hall,” which came out on August 15, 2014.  There are 36 tunes the artist revisits that he performed with Genesis during his tenure there, from 1971-1977.  If you want to hear new takes on some of the band’s earlier works- before their massive breakout time- this is the way in which, you can do it so please, seek the album out and add it to your ever-growing collection of fine music that the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day/AICP-END Blog promotes.  We promote nothing but the absolute best.




SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Tuesday, November 27, 2012 Blog Post:






BLUE CHEER released their third album, “New! Improved!” on April 21, 1969 and the power trio had now evolved into a quartet with other players brought in to augment an ever-changing hard rock, power blitz that was blowing out ear drums as well as minds.  The band now featured Dickie Peterson (bass/vocals), Paul Whaley (drums), Bruce Stevens and/or Randy Holden (guitars) and Ralph Burns Kellogg (keyboards).  As always, most of the tunes are originals as well as a cover or two of contemporary artists of the time.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your collection of amazing rock and roll.

Posted @ the Tuesday, August 12, 2014 Blog Post B:






Robert Plant followed up the success of his sophomore effort with his third effort, “Shaken and Stirred,” which came out on May 20, 1985 and was another big seller.  It also delivered him his next hit, “Little by Little,” which is worth the price of admission alone.  Once again, the artist had a solid band around him which included Robbie Blunt (guitars), Gerald Woodroffe (keyboards), Paul Martinez (bass), and Richie Hayward (of Little Feat fame) on the drums, and some vocalists to round out the overall sound.   As fans of Led Zeppelin, although it was difficult to move on from one of the greatest bands of all time, we were now beginning to embark upon and embrace the journey with the phenomenal artist.  Please, seek this one out and continue adding it to your collection.
