HRC Stands Behind Her Man Huh?


When an executive with a subordinate in the workplace has sex
Most Americans the idea of consensual relations occurring reject
Bill Clinton perhaps the most powerful man on the planet
Flirted to bring Monica Lewinsky into his sexual predator net
Awed her, charmed her, towered over her to oral sex get
She served as an intern at his pleasure, a resume item for career advancement
How could she chance being dismissed if she did not him nine times blow?
No chance of pregnancy, but for Tripp, no one would ever know
Sexual abuse in the White House workplace seemed pretty clear
Even after 18 years many voters the idea of Bill Clinton stalking interns feared
But Hillary the champion in the fight of the War Against Women defends her unfaithful mate
Claims the sexual relationship with Monica a claim of sexual abuse does not rate
Claims Monica was an adult and made a consensual choice
Outraged in an interview she pushed back with her hypocritical voice
Throwing under the bus the victims forced to share their body to keep a job
Keeping silent, their self respect and dignity robbed
Hypocrite Rodham Clinton defends once more her man
A stain on women victims in this land

Proposition C in San Francisco Seattle Deja Vu?


Seattle tried to attack the homeless problem with taxes on business to raise
Stung by business condemnation rather than praise
Pulled its tax increase back
But kept its house building restrictions intack
Easier for the proverbial camel to throught eye of a needle go
Than to get permit for building affordable housing  from the city to bestow
Add to the costs a $15 minimum wage and jobs start to disappear
As more jobless on the streets start to appear
San Francisco with a proposition C placed by concerned citizens on the ballot this fall
If passed a receipts tax of ½ % of sales over $50 million to solve a problem that appall
Sidewalks covered in urine and feces and used syringes
The charm that once was San Francisco filth that makes one cringe
If passed millions will be raised to get people into shelters off the streets
If passed will businesses with jobs beat from San Francisco a hasty retreat
If defeated will the crime, filth, and open use of drugs cause more companies to move
Disgusted by the failure to the collateral damage of the plight of the homeless has not improved
A true Hobson’s choice that the voters must make
In a vacuum of a lack of building code and zoning review would be a mistake
Building codes and zoning that the costs of building housing raises
Are aspects of government that merits condemnation not praise

October 15, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not White Cane Safety Day


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 15, 2018 De Niro is back on the anti-Trump rant with an appearance of what hopefully will be a short lived show The Alec Baldwin Show: Trump and Melania are in Florida observing the devastation inflicted by Hurricane Michael; Elizabeth Warren released her DNA test results which showed trace amounts of American Native DNA well below the threshold to merit federal aid or affirmative action status for hiring preference (so Pocahontas claim by Trump still has some merit); in Georgia Stacey Abrams running for governor as a Blue articulated the Reds’ worst nightmare that the Blue Wave will include illegal aliens at the polls (real issue that the MSM ignores and what potentially is the real threat to our democracy in an era where if you register for a driver’s license in states like California, you are automatically registered to vote); Trump was in rare form on 60 Minutes blasting the bias of the MSM and defending his attempts at improved relationships with Putin and Kim; Sears once an icon in the retail world has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy; Merkel’s allies in Germany are getting clobbered in regional elections as more and more Germans are reacting adversely to her refugee admission open door policies; Emanuel’s announcement that he will not seek reelection has not curbed the gun violence as through October 13, 2018, 2427 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, of whom 402 have died (when will Chicago 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 mostly people of color by mostly people of color).

Losing the War on Drugs


The war on drugs has failed at great cost
In addition to the number of lives lost
Prisons and jails swamped with new arrivals using drugs
Non violent crimes jailed like thugs
The flow of drugs from Mexico is more like a never ending tidal wave
More people than lost in entire Vietnam War going to OD graves
Using the criminal justice system to the drug problem solve
Instead of the rehab community to the solutions to the epidemic devolve
Addiction is a disease yet viewed by governments as a crime
Forcing this nation to spend billions so addicts can serve time
Little treatment only more jailers and prison guards
While on the streets usage increases does not retard
Black families torn asunder as black males
In increasing numbers due to drugs find their way to jail
No father figures only more and more single moms
Caught up in welfare not working receiving alms
With prison records the job market shuts its doors
A problem we can no longer ignore
As life expectancy falls, no longer soars
Too many OD’ed bodies litter the floors
Too many unwed mothers faced with an insurmountable hurdle
Little wonder the children growing up on prison track curdled

Trick or Treat Over 12 and Go to Jail Huh?


The nanny state is alive and well
Time in Chesapeake, Virginia to ring the alarm bell
It is illegal for trick or treaters over the age of 12 to trick or treat on Halloween night
Wonder who came up with this idea that does not seem remotely right
Was it an attempt to vandalism curb?
Or another goal that is more absurd?
Like cities waging a war on sugared sodas to obesity deny
The city fathers may have wanted its teens to avoid sugar highs
Trick or treat bags are never filled with fruits
No, candy rules the night and is the majority loot
Chesapeake needs to curb its nanny state urge
Nothing to be gained by banning a one night candy splurge

Another Illegal Alien Surge

The news out of Honduras is that the border surge will get worse
A caravan of more than a thousand refugees trying to escape poverty and crime surge
Our schools are like lifeboats of a sinking ship
Overcrowded with more climbing aboard to under the waves slip
Sad state of affairs that we can no longer ignore
Wave upon wave of unskilled illegals coming through an open border door
Kills the black communities and drive wages down
An immigration policy totally unsound
Why is it we should ask
That Central America when it comes to growth economics fails its task
Is it the corruption or the subjugation of the poor by the elite
Countries down the economic rat hole into poverty greet
We cannot be the welcome mat for economies that continue to fail
Try as we may swamped by illiterates the American Dream for our citizens doomed to no longer prevail.

October 13, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not English Language Day


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 13, 2018 Trump is basking in the glow of a White House visit by the pastor jailed by Turkey of almost two years that his efforts were instrumental in getting released;  HRC with her end civility comment is evidently viewed by Blue candidates as the “kiss of death” with her 36% favorability rating and her stripped security clearance; thanks to Trump the American pastor wrongfully jailed by Turkey has been released from house arrest and is returning to the United States; Glenn Simpson the cofounder of Fusion GPS, the firm that created the false anti-Trump dossier that led to the witch-hunt of the Mueller investigation has been subpoenaed to appear before Congress but has indicated he will invoke the 5th; the clueless View is back in the news with Yvette Brown claiming Melania was one of Trump’s mistresses (why up and coming star at Fox Abby Huntsman moved to those idiots is a complete mystery); Walmart has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit brought by cashiers over a lack of seat for $65 millions (classic example of why companies are  leaving California due to its  regulatory environment); on the drug front, the US Coast Guard Cutter Active has completed a successful tour after intercepting from three vessels almost 6000 pounds of cocaine with a value of $87 million; Trump has told leftist Senators Feinstein and Harris to take a hike and nominated without their consent three conservative judges from California to the 9th Circuit (Feinstein has lost her claim to a Blue Slip after her disgraceful and shameful handling of Professor Ford’s letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct and Harris’s belligerent questioning disqualifies her from any Blue Slip consideration); Emanuel’s announcement that he will not seek reelection has not curbed the gun violence as through October 11, 2018, 2398 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, of whom 399 have died (when will Chicago 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 mostly people of color by mostly people of color).

        As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Kanye West feat. Jamie Foxx, factoids of interest for this day in history, the fact that unlike many of the resistance Blues you are not a nefandous person and a relevant quote from a Congressional subcommittee investigating the USS Kitty Hawk riot, 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.

e. 2001 Polaroid a victim of the digital camera age filed for bankruptcy protection.
   Reflections on the race riot aboard the USS Kitty Hawk: :”The Navy's recruitment program for most of 1972 which resulted in the lowering of standards for enlistment, accepting a greater percentage of mental category IV and those in the lower half of category III, not requiring recruits in these categories to have completed their high school education, and accepting these people without sufficient analysis of their previous offense records, has created many of the problems the Navy is experiencing today.” Congressional Subcomittee investigating the Kitty Hawk race riot—frightening reminder of the fact that too often racial tension is alive and well in all facets of American life..

Michael Slams Into Florida


Michael may be the archangel blowing his heavenly horn
But not in Florida where he is becoming an almost Cat 5 born
Trees felled tiles from roofs shorn
Houses damaged power lines from transistors torn
Rain pouring down, storm surge coming in
Against an almost Cat 5 humans almost always humans lose never win
Know not whether Michael is the result of climate change
Only that the winds and surge will derange
Thank God for the cold currents off the California coasts
We may be ticking time bombs for earthquakes but for hurricanes nowhere near toast

Holder Wants to Kick Reds Go Lower


Dreams of running for office have made Holder partisanship bolder
When it came to weaponizing DOJ look no further than Eric Holder
Dog whistles of hate and violence with kick em rant
Dismissing Michelle's go higher chant
Holder is such a partisan hack
Useful only to protect Obama's back
Clarion call to mobilize the Blue leftist base
Civility with Reds to vanish without a trace
Holder's world is a world where civility is dead
In your face rhetoric and violence instead
In Holder's, Clinton's and Waters' world ends justifies the means
Lap dogs of hate of Antifa ready to surge onto violent rioting scene
Poor Holder he thinks he wants to be president in a crowded field
Against a bunch of political darlings of left who will not to him yield
No matter how hard he will try
His Fast and Furious caused a Border Patrol agent to die
On his expected run for president attempt
Like Congress voters will hold him in contempt

Susan Rice's Conservative Son Assaulted By Leftist At Stanford


The left over Kavanaugh’s confirmation is continuing to become unhinged
Across this land they are going on profanity laced violent binges
The it’s a video queen’s son was assaulted at Stanford by a leftist student
On the let the winds of freedom blow the left unhinged and imprudent
When Blue leaders like Holder, Clinton and Maxine
Urge followers to be uncivil to Reds as the normal scene
No wonder the left respond to the dog whistles of hate and abuse
Soon the left will be reaping the injuries or deaths of violence let loose
Waters is a lost cause but Clinton and Holder should know better
Nothing good results when civility is shackled and fettered
Howl at the sky or yell obscenities into an opponent’s face
End of discourse and discussion replaced by total disgrace
As we enter a most crucial midterm election season
The left has discarded all sense of reason
Replaced by divisiveness and violent threats
Ignoring that at the ballot box such acts they will soon regret

October 10, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Mental Health Day


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 10, 2018 Hurricane Michael is bearing down on Florida and expected to reach landfall in the Florida panhandle as a Cat 4 with life threatening winds and storm surges; San Francisco that liberal sanctuary city where illegals are free to roam and once was a place to where a flower in your hair has now been name the “doo-doo” capital of the world in terms of human fecal matter on its sidewalkd (should also be named the syringe capital of the world in terms of used needles deposited on sidewalks); Blues are in a tizzy over the Kavenaugh nomination and are floating ideas to duplicate FDR’s failed plain to increase the court or limit the lifetime appointment of justices while Nadler chomping at the bit for the Blues to regain control of the House is floating the balloon to impeach Kavanaugh (time for Blues to chill out and stop resisting and cross the aisle to work to solve issues confronting Americans); HRC is taking rightful flack for her call that Blues need to end all civility in dealing with Reds (this Marvin K. Moody and her sexual predator husband really need to disappear from the political scene); on the PC academic front a small bit of sanity has returned and Professor Cheney-Lippold of the University of Michigan has been disciplined for his refusal to write a letter of recommendation for one of his students who wanted to study abroad in Israel (anti-Semitism is alive and well on college campuses while Israelis hunker down in bunkers due to Hamas rockets); on the political front Krysten Sinema a Blue candidate for Arizona’s Senate seat is being lambasted for promoting the lawyer who represented the blind Sheik and conspired to transmit messages to supporters to promote bombings (this is a candidate that the voters in Arizona need to reject); Emanuel’s announcement that he will not seek reelection has not curbed the gun violence as through October 9, 2018, 2383 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, of whom 392 have died (when will Chicago 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 mostly people of color by mostly people of color).
