What's Worse Calling A Woman A Bimbo Or Fat

Clinton is getting desperate as her once landslide lead continues to evaporate
Continually dogged by the private email server and pay to play scandal as Secretary of State
After playing again and again the race card that will not on Trump stick
She in reflex action goes paranoid and conceals that she was with pneumonia really sick
Now this woman who viciously ravaged women who were targets of Predator Bill
As unworthy bimbos in desperation mode as her campaign slides downhill
Has released a new ad with women looking into a mirror
With Trump statements in the background implying he is a candidate that women must fear
“Is this the kind of president we want for our daughters?” is the ad’s ending line
Part of a campaign that has no enthusiasm, no ideas,  no record, orno job creating design
Call a Rosie O’Donnell fat or a slob may not be in good taste but somewhat states the facts
Calling women “bimbos” due to her husband’s sexual predator acts
Is far worse than observing a woman might be fat
Unless she was as enabler for her husband’s sick thrills
Most daughters would have expected a mother to divorce a pervert like Bill
She cannot run on her record as it is a disaster and flat
Anyone with daughters or for that matters sons
Yearns for a president who the truth will not as a matter of character always shun

September 23, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Native American Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 23, 2016 Only 47 waning days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president and only 3 days until the first debate; on the blue on black front, the Tulsa police officer who shot an unarmed black in Tulsa has been arrested for manslaughter and the protests in Charlotte continue but at least peaceful last night amid growing calls that police videos be released to either confirm or deny the presence of a gun or a book held by the victim; in two really disturbing items on the sanctity of our elections news that even now top Blues are concluding that Russia is definitely behind growing cyber efforts to influence our election and the Obama administration is pedal to the metal to spare no money to naturalize as many people as possible before the elections so they can vote (i.e. vote Blue); on the crime front Weiner is being investigated by the NYPD for his sexting with a minor (this guy really needs some professional help) and Brad Pitt is being investigated by the FBI over claims that far too often arise in divorce proceedings that he abused one of his children; on the sports front my beloved Cardinal goes into the Rose Bowl with a three point spread favorite against the Bruins to see if they can beat them nine times in a row—Go Cardinal!

1. Native American Daycelebrated in California and South Dakota in a better late than never moment after we took their lands and basically violated and ignored every treaty with tribes we entered into to commemorate and honor the contributions American Indians have made for this country (thank God for Hollywood to make a movie Windtalkers about the Navaho code speakers who were so vital to the war in the Pacific).  
2. National Dogs In Politics Day—celebrating the Nixon’s famous “Checkers Speech” after he had been charged with using $18,000 of campaign funds during the 1952 elections for his own personal use, he went on TV to proclaim that his two daughters had received a dog as a gift which the family would keep and had named Checkers; man’s best friend when it have always been a focus of attention in elections and the presidency (had Goldwater been a better candidate LBJ’s pulling one of his beagles up by the ears might have cost him the election).  
3. 1947 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1947 on an unbelievably long run of 12 weeks in that position “Near You” by Francis Craig. Here is a recording of Francis Craig and His Orchestra performing the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbZLpAMnclQ
4. National Great American Pot Pie Day—celebrating a dish that has been around since Roman times; if you don’t want to be dependent on Marie Callender for this culinary treat here is a recipe for chicken pot pie that is easy and delicious. http://blog.thenibble.com/2015/09/23/food-fun-chicken-pot-pie-baked-potato/  
5. How To Derail A Tranecelebrating the birth on this day in 1926 of noted and pioneering jazz saxophonist John Coltrane aka the Trane who blew his last not at the too early age of 40 due to suspected heroin use.   
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1642 Harvard College graduated its first students.
b. 1780 British major John Andre was arrested as a spy which led to the exposing of Benedict Arnold as a traitor.  
c. 1889 Nintendo was founded.      
d. 1911 in a making the world smaller moment pilot Earl Ovington under the authority of the U.S. Postal Service delivered the first air mail.
e. 2002 the first version of the web browser Firefox Mozilla was released.       
Reflections on our treatment of American Indians:”“It's a widely accepted principle,' he says, 'that you can claim a piece of land which has been inhabited for tens of thousands of years, if only you repeat this mantra endlessly: 'We discovered it, we discovered it, we discovered it....” Kurt Vonnegut, Deadeye Dick great American author who was a POW at Dresden when it was leveled by American and British bombers toward the end of World War II.

House Moving Forward To Hold Paglioni In Contempt

There is an old idiom that says “If you lie down with dogs you will rise up with fleas.”
In a political context it would be “Associate with the Clintons and you catch the above the law disease
Paglioni, the high tech wiz who set up Hillary’s email server, has a valid House subpoena ignored
This complete disregard ala Clinton for the legal process we as a nation cannot afford
The House oversight committee has voted to hold Paglioni in contempt
Just because he worked for a Clinton does not make him from legal process exempt
The full House will soon vote on whether to hold Paglioni in contempt for his failure to appear
Looking at what happened to Holder and Lerner when held in contempt he sadly has nothing to fear
Under Lynch who breached all ethical restraints
Meeting with Bill Clinton all sense of objectivity fatally tainted
Paglioni could appear and assert to all questions the fifth
And any threat of contempt his appearance would lift
And it would destroy once and for all Hillary’s desire her aides be truthful myth
With no judge present in the booth to comment on the fifth, a few more percentages of the vote to Trump as a gift
If he refuses and Trump wins it is very possible a pardon of him is not within Obama’s rights
A new AG if Trump desired could prosecute but if Hillary had been pardoned not worth the likely partisan fight
Even if Hillary is not pardoned Trump will probably act like the art of the deal master and a compromise craft
Not prosecute but recover some of Bill’s pay to pay speaking fees and all Clintons and the Foundation go on their separate paths
Allowing the nation to concentrate on having its citizens try to unite
To concentrate on jobs, border security and the radical Islamist fight

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 22, 2016, first day of fall on the Autumnal Equinox  Only 48 waning days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president; in an is it Memorex or live, the DOJ in its charge of attempted murder and terror against Rahami omits ISIS allegiance in his diary; after Wells Fargo’s president Stumpf took rightful heat from the Senate, Mylan’s greedy CEO took the House grilling seat for raising the price of its EpiPen; another night of violence with one person being shot in Charlotte (how does looting stores advance the cause and discussion over potential excessive police force?); Trump at a rally supported “stop and frisk” as a means to stop the carnage of black on black killings in cities like Chicago; Feds refused to raise rates and the market soared yesterday and is off to a roaring start today; Russia sends its only decrepit aircraft carrier into the waters off the coast of Syria; another red line in the sand that is totally feckless as a U.S. base in Iraq attacked with poison gas—safe bet that our feckless president will go play golf or orally just berate; late breaking news of another “pressure cooker“ bomb found in New York; in yet another condemnation of the failed socialist policies of Venezuela that have left the government on the risk of collapse, Peru’s president slammed the government over its spending and impending collapse; in a really chilling report, ISIS is reported to have killed 6 boys for the crime of playing soccer—when will the civilized world including all Arab nations come to their senses with or without Obama and send troops to kill every last one of these monsters in their caliphate?

I a deadly twist of fate, the Sunset Limited’s departure from New Orleans was delayed some 90 minutes due to air-conditioning problems which had that not occurred the train would have long since gone over the bridge before the barge struck it.       
Reflections on how to advance in business: The most important factor in determining whether you will succeed isn't your gender, it's you. Be open to opportunity and take risks.

Texas Bails From Refugee Resettlement Due To Lack Of Security

We have already seen state after state Obamacare exchanges drop out leaving only six
Money losing proposition if you are only insuring those with preexisting conditions and the really sick
The straw that will break Obamacare’s back
While delivering Hillary’s campaign a massive setback
Will be double digit premium increases that will our wallets whack
Watch the death spiral continue and the number of insured contract
The lights must be burning at her campaign and the White House into the late night
Trying so hard to delay the increases until after the polls close to avoid voter anger blight   
In a different arena from Obama’s misguided policies watch the states begin to bail
Texas is the first to from the Refugee Resettlement Program its participation derail
The feds have refused to approve Texas’ refugee security plan
No wonder Trump has hit a responsive chord wanting without “extreme” vetting a ban
When it comes to insuring no radicalized Islamists Obama’s people are like ostriches with heads in the sand
So quick to throw down the red card of Islamaphobia at the “deplorables” who refuse to march to the PC band
I pity poor Hillary trying to pass herself off as an Obama clone
When more and more Islamist attacks are being aimed at our homes
As such an uninspiring candidate that too many of us absolutely due to her dishonestly detest
She needs Obama’s and his coalition’s support to prevent Trump to from her the White House wrest

Another Police Shooting/Riot This Time In Charlotte

Another police shooting of a black who may or may not have had a gun
Facts are not anywhere close to being in and the protests in the streets have begun
Charlotte, North Carolina is the latest city to witness a police shooting to kill
Even if the officer involved was black the rush to judgment anger of the black community will not be easily distilled
Not sure if the police had body cams or even if they were turned on
But this should be a mandatory item for police especially when a response ends up in a morgue awaiting a trip to Forest Lawn
In too many communities trust of members of color of the police is at or almost zero
The police whether right or wrong are viewed as oppressors far from being heroes
The violence in Charlotte has shown that the easy fix of integrating the force
Is not a guarantee that trust in police will come back as a matter of course
If we could somehow look into a cop’s heart and determine who was a racist
My belief is that very few of them on the force would exist
And if we were trying to find those who harbored desires to men of color kill
My strong belief is that number would be next to nil
This is a very stressful, tough job to protect and serve when facing those who would kill, assault, or rob
Knowing that if you overreacted to protect your own life, your city would be facing a rioting mob
This is a major problem that we as a nation must address
On the police side more community policing and training to the reflex to reach for a gun suppress
And on the other the need to in a confrontation the orders of the police not resist
With a committed reality that redress in the courts to excessive behavior does exist
No matter the frustration, looting a Wal Mart store is an act that should be in the strongest terms condemned
Will destroy public support in an instance and do absolutely nothing to future excessive force stem.

Limegate And Employgate Just The Latest Clinton Scandal

Two news items make it very clear that when it comes to shakedown, the Clintons are in the top tier with their hands out to money grab
The Perfume Foundation was looking to after a hurricane for a speaker at its inaugural confab
So the Perfume Foundation turned to a willing Bill
For less than an speech $260,000 into the Clinton till
Here’s where not all perfume has a welcome fragrance
And when it comes to pay for play, the Clintons never pass up a good chance
A few months later the Clinton Foundation to the industry’s aide
Limeoil is often a key ingredient on how perfume is made
Too many lime trees in Haiti by a hurricane had been destroyed
So to plant 30,000 lime trees Clinton Foundation funds were deployed
Coincidence or the worthy goals of the Foundation at work to repair impoverished farms?
Or the darker side of pay to play that should raise alarm?
Sadly the Clintonites are not stupid enough to leave a paper or electronic trail
And no one in their right mind would admit to being a party to extortion and end up in jail
The next news item also reveals a consistent  pattern of corruption on display
300 donors to the Foundation were hired by State to start enjoying government pay
Were these the best qualified and should have been or would have been hired in any event?
Or were these more like major donor Rajiv Fernando who onto a nuclear security advisory board was sent?
Totally unqualified with access to very sensitive nuclear weapons intel
Like the old practice in the British Army of commissions to buy and sell
Like the corrupt stench emanating from what is now referred to as Limegate
More likely the case of yet another example of the pay to work corruption during her time at State
If we continue to hire not the best and brightest but rather
Those individuals who are best at bundling donations to gather
We are heading further and faster down a government incompetence slope
While facing more and more difficult issues and concern led by officials who will struggle to cope
