Perdue Joins Tyson to Ape Beyond Meat


Beyond Meat’s stock after its IPO has gone off like a rocket
Putting millions in early stage investors’ and those IPO purchasers’ pockets
No earnings only losses but for a brief moment the only game in town
The big boys seeing the hype are coming in to take Beyond Meat down
First Tyson the number one processor of chicken
Entered plant based meat to give Beyond Brands a licken
Followed by Perdue at number four realizing this is a market hard to ignore
Watch for suitors of Beyond Brand to come knocking at the door
Far more efficient to make directly from plants foods with a true chicken like taste
Without the cruelty to the chickens and the cost of handling chicken waste
No good idea goes unnoticed in the world of business
Ape others’ success is the secret of competitive wiseness
We are witnessing a race from the chicken coop
Who among the top ten will be the plant food winner and not fail to around competitors loop?

June 15, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Wind Dayd


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 15, 2019 To the predictable howls of the ACLU and the pro illegal alien lobbies, Governor De Santes of Florida signed a law banning cities from becoming sanctuary cities and failing to cooperate with ICR (finally some sanity on this lawless sanctuary city issue); after the jury tacked on $33 million of punitive damages against Oberlin College in the defamation case brought against by a bakery, Bill Maher lashed out against the political correctness that has infected the progressive movement (the decision might lead the left to think twice or three times before tossing the race card out on the slightest pretext with little prior investigation of the facts and that will be a positive thing); a Fort Worth, Texas deputy sheriff with 19 years on the force was found mortally wounded in his personal car parked in the sheriff’s parking lot across the street from the sheriff’s office; Memphis had a mini-riot on its hands following a shooting incident involving a suspect with felony warrants who allegedly stepped out of his car with a gun and was shot and killed by police; Don Lemon the biased pseudo journalist is at it again slamming Trump for allegedly being behind the move to block Tubman’s replacement of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill; Sarah Sanders the target 24/7 by the MSM who is leaving as press secretary this month is be slammed by the very same media for not make the president more accessible to the press which is a total fabrication of the truth; a three judge panel has ruled it is not illegal to possess pot in prison but it is still illegal to smoke it (having inmates stoned all the time would probably greatly reduce prison violence and deaths); on the medical front people with infections of Clostrodium difficile, a drug resistant bacteria that claimed 25,000 lives in 2015, are experimentally being treated by the transfer of fecal material from an uninfected person to an infected one but such experiment claimed two victims where the transplanted material was infected with e coli; we all know that eagles soar through the but we now have video that they also are graceful swimmers, swimming with a butterfly stroke through the water: https://watchtvnow.co/?adprovider=AppFocus1&source=d&device=c&creative=344075116530&keyword=&matchtype=&adposision=none&placement=www.dailymail.co.uk&target=&gw=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuNWntNzr4gIVh4VpCh327wphEAEYASAAEgI0g_D_BwE                                              ; through June 13, 2019 1094 people  have been shot in Chicago of whom 205 have died (what makes the Smollett case so frustrating is that it forced the city of Chicago to allocate scarce detective resources when in only 9% of the shootings resulting in murder have a suspect being charged this year).
1. World Wind Day—created by the European Wind Energy Association in 2007 to promote the use of wind energy as an alternative to fossil fuels and the reduction of carbon emissions.                                      
 2. National Beer Day (United Kingdom)—created in 2015 by Jane Payton to promote to consumption of beer which the English make in great and varied quantities and celebrated on this date because it represents the date the Magna Carta was signed which in clause 35 mentions there shall be only one measure for beer, the London quarter. 
 3. 1946 Number One Song—the number one song on this day in 1946 for 10 weeks in that position was “The Gypsy” by The Ink Spots. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vG6g5CkyWAo. The group was very popular in the 40’s and 50’s until in disbanded in 1954 but had the unusual distinction since they never protected the name of having some 100 groups subsequent to disbandment use the name.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day as we move from words beginning with “o” to words beginning with “p” is “perduellion” which Brennan idiotically has a tendency to claim Trump is guilty of.
5. Wailing into Stardom and Hall of Fame—celebrating the birth on this day of 1937 of Waylon Jennings, noted country and western singer who battled and beat cocaine addiction in 1984 and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001 before his death from complications of diabetes on February 13, 2002.

Reflections on alternative energy sources not fossil fuels: “We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy - sun, wind and tide. ... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.” Thomas A. Edison very astute observation into the future by a brilliant inventor.

Special Place In Hell For Swalwell


Madame Albright in the 2016 said it so very  well
“Women who did not vote for Hillary deserved a special place in Hell”
She was later forced to recant and eat crow
As the Trump supporters’ anger began to quickly grow
Eric Swalwell must be searching for his own fiery place
He’s beating the drums for impeachment to Trump replace
Eric Swalwell merits a special place in Hell
Foe his quest to on impeachment of Trump dwell
Blues cannot in the House investigate and legislate at the same time
When will the lights go on to end the MIA and realize there is no Trump crime?
Anyone who would contribute to a candidacy that will not even get out of the primary gate
Is a man whose wallet sanity on Swalwell given a rating of not more that 9nt rate should be making an exit date
What a waste of time to on a stage detract even if only a slim hope how issues the Blues would attack
Total mystery why he should stay in as a stone cold loser who in the race will remain unheard and way back.

Chaos In Our Cities From Illegals


It is a tale of two cities both without pity but with crushing grief
Humans on the edge of starvation desperate for relief
The first can be found in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala in disease ridden slums
Where desperate poverty stricken people want by any means to the U.S. come
If they dodge the heat, the cartels, the robberies, human trafficking and rape
Claim asylum and into detention centers with a room over their head
Sheltered from cartel violence and three meals to be fed
Then released into the interior never for a hearing to return
Yet the see no crisis, hear no crisis, feel no crisis Blues have no concern
The other cities are found across this nation sprouting up on sidewalks and parks
                                                   
                             
Along bike paths, levees, under bridges,  in subways or any place to stay dry and  warm when it rains or gets dark
A sea of tents, fields of litter and trash and used needles to mark the boundaries of these cities
 Abandoned by the ruling elite to a life full of despair and most gritty, a life most shitty
In L.A, these cites population grows by leaps and bounds
In the suburbs, the NIMBIES rail to have no homeless around
While the Blues make the homeless problem worse
Holding out free health care for illegals a magnet attraction curse
No matter how quickly we build shelters they will overflow
As long as illegals believe that can stay here they will in huge numbers go
No more aid, no more benefits, no more food stamps or housing aid
No asylum unless heard in home country time to stop this illegal parade
Or kiss your standard of living and values down a deep drain
While we at it,  end the chain migration of illiterates and low skilled brains
On illegal immigration Blues remain MIAS
So the chaos on the border gets worse every day

June 14, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Blood DaylBkue


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 14, 2019 US Navy video shows an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded mine from one of the damaged tankers which calls into question Iran’s pathetic denial of any responsibility for the damage to two tankers (the main question is what appropriate military response will the U.S. implement as a result of this rogue nation’s aggression against world commerce?); China already ready to take advantage of a situation adverse to the U.S. in meeting with the Supreme Leader of Iran vowed to closer ties with that rogue nation; Newton, Massachusetts District Court Judge Shelley Richmond who has been charged with obstruction of justice for spiriting illegals out the back door of her courtroom to avoid apprehension by ICE has racked up over $127,000 in taxpayer funded legal fees to defend her (total disgrace to the judiciary who should have resigned and if founded guilty be disbarred); Juan de Castro in a town hall on Fox slammed Trump for failing to solve the border crisis ignoring the fact that his party has denied proper funding for the border patrol and border security (so typical of the hypocrisy that plagues him and other Blue wanna-bes wanting to be president); the House is going to study the impact of slavery on blacks today as it moves toward a consideration of reparations (at least when we righted the wrong inflected on interning Japanese-Americans during World War II to those actually interned which is not possible here as all slaves and their grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren are all most like dead); Warren who has introduced legislation that will put her in first place in the give-away the most race as she has pulled away from Sanders in the California primary; 20 out of the 23 Blue candidates made the cut for the first debate. including to everyone’s surprise Bill De Blasio who is polling 0 % in Iowa and who has no business running given his record in NYC; Governor Cuomo signed a bill elimination exemptions for religious beliefs to prevent vaccinations; through June 12, 2019 1086 people  have been shot in Chicago of whom 204 have died (what makes the Smollett case so frustrating is that it forced the city of Chicago to allocate scarce detective resources when in only 9% of the shootings resulting in murder have a suspect being charged this year).

1. World Blood Day—created by the World Health Organization in 2004 to promote awareness of the need to donate blood and means to insure the safety of donated blood.                                      
 2. Flag Day—commemorating the adoption on this day by the Continental Congress of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States and authorized by President Wilson’s presidential proclamation in 1916. 
 3. 1945 Number One Song—the number one song on this day in 1945 for 9 weeks in that position was “Sentimental Journey” by Les Brown and his Orchestra with Doris Day on vocals. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5cUU3vA6R8 Les Brown’s journey ended on January 4, 2001 with lung cancer and Doris Day’s sentimental journey ended on May 13, 2019 at 97. 
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day as we move from words beginning with “o” to words beginning with “p” is “percoct” which well-done or overcooked which describes a way to ruin a good steak.
5. Headwinds and Fake News Central—celebrating the birth on this day of 1946 of President Donald J. Trump who has battled Fake News from the MSM and Resistance from the Blues who have been obsessed with the illusion of Russian delusion and are MIA with dealing with the issues like job security and immigration that are so important to Americans.
    As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Les Brown and his Orchestra with Doris Day as vocalist,  5 factoids of interest for this day in history, the fact that you not facing a percoct steak; a quote from Donna Reed on blood donations, secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like college graduations, birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem at a great price tailored to the event and the recipient.

Oberlin Throws Race Card Out $33 Million


Oberlin College rightfully got caught in the racist defamation cookie jar
With a $33 million verdict against it future race card attacks may be barred
Tossing the race card has become so commonplace
Has become a joke and needs to be replaced
Hearing the charge that is tuned out
As all discourse is with the levying  put to rout
But in a court room words matter
No one not even a baker wants his reputation battered
Calling a business racist evokes images of men in white robes
Pulling blacks in the middle of the night out of their shanty abode
Dragged kicking and screaming to the nearest tree branch
Lynched in an act that would turn most of our faces blanche
Hopefully the left will see the judgment and take heed
Racist like nigger is a word that today we do not need

Hypocrisy Alive and Well with Blues


As sure as the Sun will rise in the East and set in the West
Hypocrisy among politicians is never subject to arrest
De Castro while serving as Secretary for HUD was cited for violating the Hatch Act
Touted in 2016 Hillary’s experience and qualification as an accepted fact
When Kelly Anne Conway may have crossed the Hatch violation line
He ranted that she should be prosecuted if she did not resign
De Castro vowed he learned his lesson and would not repeat
Akin to a one bite free pass rule for a wild dog growling at your feet
But Kelly Anne showed no remorse and would violate the law with impunity
So in De Castro’s mind she was not entitled to any immunity
In his book Trump should be prosecuted for listening to foreign agents’ campaign dirt
But not Hillary who paid for Steele’s anti-Trump dossier that laid on Trump a world of hurt
To him HRC has no flaws as she is above the law
We mere mortals must never hold her in contempt only in awe
It would be refreshing to listen to a politician who believes what is good for the goose is good for the gander
Transparency and a two way street swept clean of race and gender cards to the base to pander
