Maskless Chris Cuomo Masks for You Not for Me Clubbing at NYC Private Club Maskless

 

When it came to the call for receiving integrity the call for it must have been missed
When  it comes to do as I say not as I do look no further than Chris
This icon of hypocrisy is so quick to piously hector us mere mortals to wear a mask
What do we see when we see Chris at a private club enjoying his partying task
Nothing but that uncovered Cuomo face
This hypocrite delusionally believes the CV pandemic does not visit this place
Or maybe he believes since he has been quarantined in the not too distant past
He as immunity from further infections that will forever last
Needs to have a CVS logo on his shirt
“Coronavirus Survivor” so others don’t freak out thinking they will be infected and be hurt
Maybe since the knowledge of his infection compared to Trump’s is not as well known
He might want his prior slams on Trump spreading on CNN no longer be shown

4 years Later HRC Mocked for Self Birthday Card on Being President

Seeing the self birthday card to HRC as a young child must be for HRC a bittersweet memory to block
After four years after her loss to Trump she still is in denial and can’t accept the shock
No wonder social media on her selfie B-card continues to her mock
Had she then received the gifts of truth, likeability and humbleness to the Oval Office may have been a cake walk
No she missed out and was saddled with the rope-a-dope arrogant path
Attacking Trump supporters as “deplorables” and mocking with her yipper dog laugh
Lied about her emails, her foundation and Bill’s speeches quid pro quo
Moved heaven and earth to the extent of her corruption not let the voters know
And finally with her ego and arrogance in full tilt
Believed despite her lackluster campaign a landslide lead she had built
The gift for her in her feared anguish of a Trump victory
Gallons upon gallons of Pepto-Bismol as he repeats 2016 history

October 25, 2020 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Artists Day

 

Ridley's Believe It Or Not October 25, 2020
          CV World Cases: The CV pandemic across the planet continues with 369,127 new cases (a .86%  increase compared to a 1.68% increase yesterday) to bring the total over  43 million to 43,217,109, 10,282,628 of  which  are active, 32,994.481 of which have been closed with 31,836,560  recoveries (96.49% compared to  yesterday’s 96.48%) and 1,157,921 deaths (3.51% compared to yesterday’s 3.53%) to continue the trend of increased recovery percentages and decreased mortality percentages.  
          CV USA Cases: New cases of 214,199 with total cases over 8 million at 8,668,572 (a 2.47% increase compared to yesterday’s  1.69% increase) with 2,889,736,116 active cases of which 16,354 (.57% of active cases), recently on a disturbing upward trend with slight blips from a high of 19,155 on July 23  (16,204 yesterday and 15,881 on September 1), are in serious or critical condition as trend has shifted and may be continuing to go up, and 5,993,035 closures, 230,475 of which have been deaths (3.85% compared to yesterday’s 3.86%) and 5,762,560 of which have been recoveries (96.15% compared to yesterday’s 96.14%) (our death rate percentages continue to improve and are finally in single digits since Cuomo repealed on May 10 his order sending CV positive patients to nursing homes and ADL facilities and on a deaths per million population measurement at 695 ranks behind Peru (1030), Belgium (925), Spain (743), Brazil (737), Bolivia (736),  Chile (727), and Ecuador (708),  and only slightly worse than Mexico (686), UK (660), Argentina (631) newly added to the list, d Italy (618), and Sweden (586) that never closed its economy down like we did and we have now conducted 1,020,835 more tests to bring total to 133, 229,328   tests (now at 401,502/M compared to Russia at 392,588/M so Trump is telling truth that we conduct more tests in number and on a per capital basis for nations (but excluding nations with small populations like Denmark,  Israel and Singapore) but for the U.K. at 458,213/M).
         Non CV Case News: Dodgers won Game 5 against the Rays to go up 3-2; the Senate has voted to  end the filibuster of the nomination of Judge Barrett and her nomination and expected confirmation will be voted on Monday evening (would be nice but unlikely for some Blues to vote in favor of this highly qualified judge); to the Blues and the left, Trump and his supporter are Nazis but in a Jews for Trump Parade in NYC, it looks like the true Brown Shirts are from the left as rocks and other objects were thrown at vehicles with Trump flags (dog whistles of violence are blowing long and shrill by the left); the collateral damage of the CV lock downs that gets little attention is the increasing deaths from opioid use  as California AG remarks that in some of his counties deaths from  opioid use are exceeding CV deaths; the “conservative” Manchester Union after endorsing Libertarian Gary Johnson in 2016,  for the first time in 100 years is endorsing  a Democrat,Joe Biden (must mean that they believe against all known facts that Biden’s 25th Harris is a closet conservative); Susan Collins of Maine announced that she would follow precedence and vote against Amy ?Coney Barrett (with all due respect she is out to lunch 2016 was a Blue president trying to appoint someone to a Red Senate with nowhere near the qualifications or integrity or intellect of Judge Barrett); in a sign that the left is confident of keeping the House, AOC will not commit to supporting Pelosi for another stint as Speaker; the nation is facing a troika of confusing weather with high winds, snow and a tropical storm with the winds bringing blackout threats in Northern California and the snow to firefighters in Colorado fighting a massive wildfire being manna from heaven; another case of an attack on an unsecure mail-in ballot drop box this time an arson attempt outside the  Boston Public Library (when will we wake up to the fact that in this ends justifies the means highly charged election season, ballots must be secure not placed in public drop off boxes; the college admissions scandal may have set her mother Felicity Huffman back 11/14 days in jail and 250 hours of community service but did not derail her elder daughter’s academic career plans as she announced she is off to Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama.
          Chicago/Baltimore Gun Violence: In Chicago as of October 24,  2020, the number of shootings increased to 3,496 of whom 597 have died (total travesty of BLM when blacks are shot and killed by blacks in droves and only sounds of silence and complete absence of any protests in front of City Hall demanding action to curb the killings and shootings); Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population and hoping against all hopes that 2020 will not be a record in terms of deaths but now seems to be shooting less and killing less and is now 328 behind Chicago at 269 murders (when will Chicago and Baltimore get serious about this carnage or is this the case of true racism as a Blue run city turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the slaughter of people of color by people of color and when will the left focus on the problem of color on color shootings in Blue run cities which  have  been way  more  deadly and way more numerous than shootings by  police or by random mass shootings which occur far much less.
        As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, factoids of interest for this  day in history, a musical link to “Smooth”  by Santana feat. Rob Taylor,  the fact that you are normally not polyloquent and an editorial from El Tiempro on the invasion of Grenada, secure in the knowledge that if you want to send a gift for any memorable events like Father’s Day, 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. Please contact me for details.
          1.  International Artists Day—created by Canadian artist Chris McClure on this day in 2004 to celebrate the contributions to society of artists around the world.

          2.  National Mother-in-law Day—created in 2002 and celebrated on the 4th Sunday in October to encourage spouses to recognize that the path to a happy stress free marriage is to win over the other spouse’s mother-in-law who far too often is the butt of many a comedian’s jokes.        

         3. 1999 Number One Song— the number 1 songs in 1999 on a run of 12 weeks (10 in 1999 and 2 in 2000) was “Smooth” by Santana feat. Rob Thomas to join 9 other songs that made the number 1 list for the first time and 14 other songs that made the number 1 list.  Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Whgn_iE5uc&list=PLuZdt4bijghMuVWF4bzOrUPZ3dq0izYfi  Rob Taylor, a successful artist and lead singer of Match Box Twenty had a rough life with an  alcoholic mother and an alcoholic grandmother who sold drugs and moonshine on the side but became a top singer and songwriter. Santana is a rock band formed by 73 year old Carlos Santana in 1966 and still growing strong with many new and changing participants around Carlos.

          4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “polyloquent” which means loquacious which probably describes many political speeches to a tee. 

          5. Blow and Fast Breaks Together Don’t Go--celebrating the birth on this day in 1963 of actor, director and film producer Ted Demme who died way too early during a Hollywood charity basketball game at age 38 on January 13, 2002 of a heart attack which may well have been caused by the cocaine found in his system during his autopsy.

         On this day in:

        a. 1920 after a hunger strike lasting 74 days by Sinn Fein’s Lord Mayor of Cork, Terrence MacSwiney at Brixton Prison, Lambeth, England,  he died at the age of 41.

          b. 1962 in a you are lying through your teeth about Soviet ballistic missiles in Cuba “Gotcha” moment, UN Ambassador Adlai Stevenson showed the world on TV photographic evidence of Soviet missile sites being constructed on Cuba and the world moved closer to a nuclear war it has ever been.

          c. 1971 the People’s Republic of China replaced the Republic of China (Taiwan) at the United Nations.

         d. 1983 under the guise of protecting over 600 U.S. medical students but more likely an excuse to remove a Communist dictatorship that had just removed and executed several members of the ruling dictatorship and looking to complete a airport that would accommodate large Soviet bombers and transport plane, American military forces supplemented by some forces from Caribbean allies invaded Grenada, a successful invasion but which revealed that the U.S. Military had a lot of work facing it after the disaster of the Vietnam War.

         e. 2001 Microsoft released its Windows XP operating system, probably the most successful operating system Microsoft ever created and many of which are still in use today.
     
  Reflections on the invasion of Grenada October 25, 1983: “Fidel Castro said in Grenada there were 600 Cubans who were simple doctors, construction workers and teachers.’ And now it turns out that these ‘doctors, construction workers and teachers have been fighting check to jowl for two days with an entire naval flotilla from the most powerful nation in the world. That it is to say that it wasn’t a quiet, peaceful, goodwill group involved but a group armed to the teeth capable of direct combat in a direct and efficient manner…Now Fidel orders the Cubans dug in on the island to resist until the end, by which he virtually admit they had already invaded the island by other means and now refuse to allow themselves to be pushed away.” Editorial October 27, 1983 in Bogata, Columbia’s largest daily El Tiempo..

With Harris Trojan Horse Is Alive and Well

Harris must think most Americans listening to her are total fools
Why so hip she claimed half my family is Jamaican so of course I inhaled as I am so cool
This woman is a chameleon whose ideology changes like the lizard’s colors
A Harris presidency so shifting with the winds would be anything but stellar
In 60 Minutes to a question about socialism she broke into laughs
Defensive trait to deflect and avoid the truth when it will give her the shaft
Most people believe that Biden will not make it through a full term
Electing him is equivalent of electing Harris to the Oval Office she must yearn
Anyone who believes Harris would not have accepted the slot if she did not agree with Joe
This poet has a London Bridge to with a sale it on that person bestow
Biden is no Ulysses and would not be mentally or physically fit to spring from inside
But Harris is and with her leftist cohorts that Trojan Horse is going to take this nation on a disastrous ride

"Conservative" Manchester Union Endorses Biden as President We Don't Want but Need

For the first time in over 100 year the Manchester Union is endorsing for president a Blue
Endorses Biden not as one they want but one we need to Trump’s divisive policies eschew
The motto of the Granite State is “Live Free or Die”
Did they asks what freedoms Biden or rather his replacement Harris would deny?
The freedom to bear arms will clearly be whittled down
Semi-automatics will be classified as assault weapons and banned and then taken in cities and towns
Freedom to start a business and build an inheritable estate
So difficult when the federal tax man under Biden will be hard to sate
Freedom to load up the family car to commute to work or take a Sunday drive
Hard pressed to afford as a Biden war on oil and fracking will leave oil business struggling to survive
New Hampshire is thousands of miles from our southern border which under Biden will be an open gate
Condemning us still to more violent crime and drugs and for minorities far  lower wage rates
A CV attack plan that parrots what Trump has done but with a hair trigger to shut economy down
Defunding police even if called reimagining police leaving our streets no longer safe and sound
Paper is wrong, for America in time of crisis Trump’s policies are right not wrong
Harris may do better but Biden after 47 failed and tainted years shows he does not in the Oval Office belong
Trump has his faults and lacks some civility in his political manners
But we should opt for prosperity rather than wanting to be under the Biden recession banner

Harris Wants Blacks to Forget the Biden Crime Bill to Honor Ancestors' Fight for Civil Rights

 Harris proclaims with a straight face

Voting for Biden will honor our ancestors who fought to end the absence of Civil Rights disgrace

She must have a Biden like memory to forget his role in the 1994 crime bill

That sent black males behind bars for crack cocaine and other illegal drug pills

Gave money to states to build prison to hold the drug violators surge

In so doing contributed to from black families fathers purge

I am sure Biden today rues his former stance

Like Trump is in favor of black economic and civil rights to advance

Like all of us he has the right to learn from and a different path take

But Harris is out to lunch saying a vote for him is a vote for ancestors who fought for Civil Rights is a huge mistake

Trump has put with jobs money in blacks' pockets

Biden can only spout racist and Trump's record really can't believably knock it

Aniston Must Think We Care How She Votes Which We Don't

 

I have to admire Aniston for conquering dyslexia to master scripts

But as an icon for political advice that admiration does not well sit

We mere mortals couldn't care less that she's a Biden vote

And rails against anyone who for West support devotes

Her world revolves around fictitious characters and events for her to play

Removed even more so with pandemic from the problems normal Americans meet each day

Who get up without any rehearsal or prepared scripts to meet reality that comes their way

Wonder how much support for Biden she will have when her CPA tells her how much more Biden tax increases she has to pay.
