SUMMER SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,239 AT THE AICP-END



418 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



Democrats were saying the same thing about recent special election outcomes this past Tuesday back in 2017
Shafter, CA 93263, 09-13-2019 FridayAmigos, escucho muchos grillos en este momento.  What I am saying is that I am hearing a mess of crickets out there right now, doing what they do best, making loads of noise but saying NOTHING.  This past Tuesday in two special elections that MY party was saying were going to be slam-dunks went the other way and no wonder.  No flipping wonder, mis amigos, because the party has (1) loads of losers seeking the 2020 nomination who will say anything to get elected and (2) a crazy platform that no one wants- especially older Democrats like yours truly.    
The Democratic Party has long been working at regaining the Old South, once our exclusive domain but then lost to the Republicans as Democrats- MY PARTY- lost the battle to preserve SEGREGATION.  As segregation fell, so, too, did the Democratic Party, from Texas to Florida and from Mississippi and Alabama to Arkansas, Tennessee, and elsewhere while at the same time, sprouting up across the North, especially in the Border States of Maryland and Delaware. 
As a Latino, I am opposed to segregation and always have been and think it is a detestable portion of our nation’s history.  The Democratic Party in the South deserved to go down in flames because it stood for the Ku Klux Klan, for ‘separate but equal,’ and for Jim Crow. 
As the South modernized and caught up with the rest of the country, it moved from progressive politics to becoming more conservative in its outlook, which led to new prosperity and a brighter outlook.  Now, the Democrats controlling the coasts and scattered enclaves across the northern tier and along the southern border are seeking to make a comeback using whatever means necessary to accomplish them. 
Back to the present, Republican state Senator Dan Bishop won North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, despite the fact that the progressive left poured a boatload of money in capturing the seat, one they said would be a definite bellwether on Trump’s re-election chances in November 2020.  They lost the seat fairly big despite militant homosexuals working at defeating Mr. Bishop because of his strong stance against transsexuals being able to use whatever bathrooms they like.  Boo hoo for them.
In North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District, Greg Murphy decisively won the battle for an open seat which the Democrats hoped they could win if they poured in enough money but oh, no, that victory was a giant one, leaving the Democrats with tears running down their faces and their mouths agape. 
It is not as if the Democrats haven’t been here before.  Chef Pedro wrote a fascinating post back on June 22, 2017 in which, he said the following:
If I was still a Kool-Aid guzzling Democrat nut, I would see the ‘writing on the wall’ with the results from a variety of special elections.  When Hollywood can dump via 7,000 or more donations in the unheard amount of $23 million to a young whippersnapper punk, a carpetbagger who does not even live in the district and STILL cannot win, wow, I would conclude it is all over.”  (Muñoz, 22-June-2017)
This is what else my colleague and friend said on the subject of Democrat failure:
“This is what happened in the Georgia 6th Congressional District race, a contest between Republican Karen Handel and millennial ‘puddy cat’ Jon Ossoff.  In a race where there were 140,000 early votes, a sign of ‘good things to come’ according to the Democrats, Ms. Handel won by 9,700 more votes than her competition beating him by 4-points and doing it with dignity.”  (Muñoz, 22-June-2017)
I remember the race between Handel and Ossoff, the latter was supposed to trounce the former because he was the bright, shiny object coming up in the world, the quintessential pajama boy, and represented the new breed of young Democrats, people who were going to sweep the Trump Revolution into the waste bin of history and to remake America in their image. 
As soon as the Democrats lose one of these races in which, they chest-thump themselves into orgasmic ecstasy over how they are going to win and win BIG, they revert to carping at the winner because he or she did not win by a large enough margin.  Remember, these are special elections and one side or the other fails to turn out which demonstrates where true momentum lies. 
Here is the final note made by Chef Pedro that I would like to share with you:
“The seasoned eye can determine that things are not going well for the Democrats and that unless they attempt to stop the ongoing decline, they could very well become a fringe party way out on the fringes.  I mean, if I was still a Democrat, I would be calling the DNC every single day of the week demanding they stop with going after the sexual deviate vote and initiate listening to the people who gave them power in the first place.”  (Muñoz, 22-June-2017)
Here is what I think: I think that unless something so life-altering to the nation occurs, the victory that Donald Trump is going to enjoy in 2020 is going to dwarf anything Ronald Reagan won in either 1980 or 1984. 
Furthermore, the president’s coattails are going to carry many more like-minded Republicans into office, too, thanks to all the cowards vacating their seats by early retirements.  I would hope some of them might reconsider; then again, let them go.  We will get better candidates into their seats, people who will work with Mr. Trump in keeping America great again.
Nos vemos, mis amigos, we will pick up tomorrow where we left off today.  Adios.

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog.  I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse.  I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career.  I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own.  I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska.  From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:









Phil Collins released his next album, “The Essential Going Back,” on July 28, 2019.  As it sounds, this is a ‘best of’ compilation featuring the crème de la crème of old Motown tunes much like Rod Stewart did an album, “Soulbook.”  The English love the old Motown greats as well as the rhythm and blues artists, hence this is where he ‘came from’ musically so he is ‘going back.’  This expanded edition is indeed a highly enjoyable album which is why we wholeheartedly recommend it to our readership.  We hope you will seek this exceptional effort out by visiting the absolute best site for music in the world- your nearest record shop.




SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Friday, December 21, 2012 Blog Post:






WestBruce, and Laing released their third and final effort (after they disbanded), “Live ‘n’ Kickin’,” on April 12, 1974.  As mentioned a few days ago, the powerhouse trio was in the throes of drug and alcohol abuse but the music still resonated and fans continued to turn out to hear the amazing performances that few other bands were able to deliver at the time.  In fact, this album features FOUR tunes that did not appear on their first two efforts which is amazing being as unique as they are.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection just as we have.  We love it as will you.

Posted @ the Sunday, August 24, 2014 Blog Post B:






Legendary vocalist, Paul Rodgers, teamed up with a number of top musicians to do a live show in lovely Montreux, “Paul Rodgers and Friends Live at Montreux,” (October 21, 1994).  Joining the singer were Brian May (Queen), Neil Schon (Journey), among others as well as Jason Bonham (drums), John Smithson (bass), Charlie Nobs (harmonica), to create a wonderful album.  The tunes run the gamut from Free and Bad Company to his solo career.  We hope you will all seek this album out as it is a fan favorite, one we know you will enjoy.  We thank you for your support in presenting nothing but the finest in rock music.
