FALL SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,278 AT THE AICP-END



380 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



We were off in 2018 but thanks to the power situation in California, the world of hurt coming the way of the Golden State Democrats in 2020 and 2022 is going to dwarf my earlier predictions…
Santa Barbara, CA 93102, 10-22-2019 Tuesday:  Back when I was young and hip, I swallowed the leftist claptrap hook, line, and sinker, like an open-mouthed bass in an agricultural canal behind our neighborhood.  However, when I was young and hip, we were not worrying about the planet overheating, the air steaming off, the skies becoming even more toxic than they were at the time, we were all about conserving resources and keeping everything clean starting with ending the flow of sewage across numerous California county beaches into the Pacific Ocean.  So, we did, we cleaned those beaches, we brought, rivers, lakes and streams back to life, got many of the pollutants out of the air so we could breathe without wheezing and coughing and we only worried about the coming Ice Age[i].  That’s right, the Ice Age.    
In the intervening years and as I grew from being young and immature to a seasoned adult, I began questioning things.  I was curious as to why people were telling us one thing while doing another like why can’t we enjoy our gas-powered cars while Hollywood actors have big limousines and flashy sports cars[ii].  Fast forward to now and I must say, I am glad I have seen the light and want to share my somewhat newfound views with the entire readership because the younger members must know the truth.
Look at California.  We have, I mean HAD the greatest state in the Union.  Things started to tank under the last governor (although at times, he did the right thing) and under the present one, Gavin Newsom, aka the “Smiler[iii],” things have gotten far worse.  Environmentalism has trashed what once was great and has led to some of the worst disasters in the history of the West. 
We all know the horrible fires that destroyed parts of our state and continue occurring more often and with ever increasing intensity and the leftists tell us that these fiery holocausts are happening because Climate Change is making things worse.  Making things worse.  To which, I say, “Bulls**t.  Environmentalists[iv] are making things worse, they are destroying the state and making us the laughing stock of the rest of the country and here is why:
When lumber companies and firewood cutters could take out the dead trees, especially the ones infested with bark beetles and other forest-destroying insects, they removed the fuels that transformed our forests into tinderboxes, awaiting lightning strikes, pyromaniacs, and the careless cigarette (or pot farmer) causing conflagrations that burn wildly out of control, drive up the costs of virtually everything, as well as cripple our main power company, Pacific Gas and Electric, aka PG&E.
Currently, PG&E is under assault by the stooges running Sacramento and destroying our state.  PG&E did not choose to have faulty equipment and to obliterate once picturesque towns such as Paradise and Chico, Napa Valley, and wherever else we have seen life-altering fires.  No, if lumber companies and firewood cutters could clear-cut the dead underbrush and the diseased trees, the transmission lines crisscrossing the state would not be at risk should an accident or an act of God occur. 
The environmentalists and Hollywood losers control the politicians in Sacramento, especially the Democrats.  I know this because I, as a former liberal, understand it fully.  We don’t live in the towns and forested areas that catch fire, burn down acres the likes of which, liberals on the eastern coast of the country cannot fully comprehend.  They wag their fingers at us for not being the ‘stewards of the environment’ they feel we should be and do little to nothing to actually evaluate the problem and then do something to fix it.
Nuclear energy, the absolute BEST alternative form to fossil fuels is going away because the liberals don’t like it.  They want to give us solar and wind, encourage us to put solar atop our rooves.  We do so.  Then, when the power goes out, unless we have a costly solar battery attached to the house, woops, there goes the juice and blackouts ensue. 
Wind power kills birds, which I hear is a ‘coincidence’ what with one-third of the world’s birds suddenly having disappeared.  Hmmm, how did that happen?  The same way when our feathered friends overfly a solar farm get turned into cinders as they attempt to navigate the air above these hellholes. 
That is bad, that ain’t right yet the environmentalists go silent on this in the same way that liberals pursuing their new flavor of the day[v]- trannys and cross-dressers- threw women and children under the bus when they said that anyone can use any restroom with which they identify on any given day.  Poor women.  Poor children.  Now, the predators can get even closer. 
We see how things rate.  Women and children mean LESS than mixed-up men who think they are women and befuddled women who want to be men with the big swinging ten.  Likewise, in pursuit of solar and wind, if birds and other animals die, it is what it is, so long as we get rid of the evil oil and natural gas and damned sure that horrible fracking which brings in a great deal of wealth for our state (like agriculture).   
Be back here tomorrow for more of the same as we will continue down this line, especially how the blackouts PG&E has resorted to causing so forests and towns near them won’t catch fire have caused problems of their own.  If we only put on our thinking caps and did the sensible thing, we would be suffering NONE of these problems.
See you in 24 hours, folks.

Back in the day, I was working at a hotel in Bakersfield, California, down on Union Avenue where I met Stinkbug.  It was still nice at the time, and the area was still the original "restaurant row" of the city.  Now, I am over 70 years old and work over in Santa Barbara, CA, as a food and beverage director for a fine-dining country club.  The pictures you see here of me are facsimiles created by up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the famed Simone.  Clever work, dude, clever work.

[i] There is a great story from a Time magazine article from 1977 that depicted a penguin on the cover with the caption as to how we could survive the coming Ice Age.  Although Snopes seeks to poo-poo this story, at the time it was the rage and everyone was fearful of the coming Ice Age and how our planet was going to free.  Some three decades later, the planet is going to overheat and we are all going to die.  Bulls**t.
[ii] I always find it absolutely amazing how large the hypocrisy is when it comes to ‘limousine liberals’ who can tell everyone else how to live their lives while they go about their business in the manner they choose without giving a hoot.  We need to stop this sort of behavior.  Liberals, show us how to do it by you doing it first.  Otherwise, STFU already.
[iii] Everyone can tell this guy is a phony.  Anyone who grins with a Joker-like smile and all the time like this guy does should tell you that he is as hateful as they come and should be driven from office.  I hope they recall him and soon.
[iv] When environmentalists stood for protecting the environment, for ending pollution and protecting people to becoming fascists, they lost the respect of many Americans.  This is the problem with success and power; unless one or a group possesses the necessary scruples, they tend to become dictators which is what the environmentalist movement has now become.  We need to drive them out of wherever we find them so we can fix the country and move ahead with prosperity.
[v] It is amazing how when a NEW group comes down the pike the liberals can toss out previous groups who thought they would always have their support.  Wait until the Democrats discover that many CHOMOS possess loads of money, let’s see them normalize pedophilia.  Scumbags.
[vi] Said to be Frank Zappa’s favorite snack. 

































































































FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:





The refurbished The Climax Blues Band released an EP featuring four tunes that would appear on their brand-new studio recording released seven months later.  This one, the EP, came out on May 14, 2018 and is entitled, “Tempus Fugit.”  The band consists of Graham Dee (vocals), Les Hunt (guitars/vocals), Chris Aldridge (saxophones/vocals), Neil Simpson (bass guitar/keyboards/vocals), George Glover (bass/keyboards/vocals), Roy Adams (drums), which is why the serious lover of the blues as reinterpreted by English musicians needs to own.  Buy it wherever you shop for the best in music.  You can thank us later but please, make sure you check it out- it’s awesome.


SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Tuesday, January 29, 2013 Blog Post:







Today’s Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention album is their eighth album, “Burnt Weeny Sandwich[vi],” which appeared on record store shelves on February 09, 1970.  Once again, the Mothers of Invention led by their zany leader, Frank Zappa, delivered the goods as they almost always do.  The lineup featured Frank Zappa (guitars/vocals/keyboards/arranger), Jimmy Carl Black and Billy Mundi (drums/vocals/percussion), Ray Collins (percussion/vocals), Roy Estrada (bass/vocals), Jim Sherwood (guitars), and Don Preston  and Ian Underwood (keyboards) along with some other phenomenal musicians to provide a unique sound.  We recommend this album to you and yours and hope that you find it to be as good as we are telling you it is.  Buy it now by seeking it out at your favorite haunt for the best in rock music.


Posted @ the Saturday, September 13, 2014 Blog Post A:






Led Zeppelin released a superb archival live release, “How the West Was Won” on May 27, 2003.  This three-disc effort is superb and features the band live in action doing the tunes that made them a legend around the world.  The band toured long and hard no matter what the critics said about their music.  Fans paid NO attention to music critics, bought the albums in droves, and continue playing them to this day.  This is a welcome addition to the band’s growing collection and we sure as heck wished it came out in the 1980s instead of two decades later as when the band broke up due to John Bonham’s death, we were left with NOTHING.  Please, seek this one out and add it as we urge you to do to your collection of fine rock-and-roll music.  You will be so glad you did.
