Ridley's Believe It Or Not September 30, 2023

 

             On the shutdown of the government front, McCarthy pulled the rabbit out of the hat by going hat in hand to seek Blue approval to get a CR with not budget cuts, no Ukraine military aide and $16 billion for additional disaster relief and the CR passed 335-91 to head to the Senate which after debate with 3 hours to spare passed the House’s CR 88-9. We now have until November 17 to have Congress pass a budget to avoid another repeat of what looks like a completely dysfunctional Congress which seems incapable of addressing our rapidly increasing national debt which is now 1.2 times our gross national product.
              On the strike front, the UAW has authorized another 7,000 members at a Ford plant in Chicago and a GM plant in Lansing, Michigan but Stellantis has been spared due to apparent progress being made.
               On the Ukraine War front with Reds in the House more and more reluctant to continued military aide to Ukraine evidenced by the CR Bill which has no funds for Ukraine, German and French manufacturers have begun to set up plants to manufacture weapons in Ukraine.
            On the political corruption front thankfully not here in the U.S. but in France, French President Nikolas Sarkozy has been sentenced to 1 year in prison for campaign finance violations to have the dubious distinction of being only the second French President in modern times to be sentenced more than once to prison although he may be allowed to serve his sentence at home with a monitor.
             On the inflation front, the ability of workers to bring home the bacon has become more difficult than ever as the prices for bacon have risen some 28% thanks to pandemic buying and meat processing plants being shut down due to widespread COVID-19 infection during the pandemic due in part to workers working in close proximity to each other
             Justice delayed is said to be justice denied, but for the family of Tupac Shakur, finally justice delayed was not denied as Las Vegas police have arrested Duane Davis, aged 60 and a former gang member for the South Compton Crips, for the 1996 drive by murder of Tupac Shakur.

Noted Holidays:  International Podcast Day created on this day in 2014 by Steve Lee to promote the growing proliferation of podcasters as a means to disseminate entertainment and information.   
              Word of the Day: The word of the day as we end the word of the day starting with “a” to move to words starting with “b” “babeldom” which means a confused source of voices which describes to a tee the sounds from a Republican Primary debate.
              Song of the Day: The number 1 song on this day in 1976 was “Play That Funky Music” by Wild Cherry on a run of 3 weeks to share number 1 status with 25 other songs achieving number 1 ranking while 15 acts, including Wild Cherry, achieved number one status for the first time.  Here is a recording  of Wild Cherry  performing with lyric “Play That Funky Music”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHcYFxU4fMo
             September 30 Birthdays: “Snatching Defeat From the Jaws of Near Victory”—Richie Lymon, noted singer and songwriter,   born on this day in 1942 in Washington Heights, New York to become  a rising singer with the Teenagers and then to go solo but with a heroin addiction that doomed his singing career to disaster. He enter the U.S. Army to escape a heroin possession charge but was soon dishonorably discharged. Ultimately managed to secure a recording session with Roulette Records for February 28, 1968 but sadly on the 27th  he was found dead with a syringe of heroin in his arm.
              September 30  Historical Events in Rhyme
              1.      On this day in 2016 2 paintings from the Van Gogh Museum in art heist/Van Goghs with a high value price/The thieves were quickly caught/But for 14 years the paintings search went for naught/Finally in 2016 the paintings were discovered in a mansion owned by Raffaele Imperiale a drug cartel king/Who was hiding out in luxury in Dubai to be arrested in 2022 to  back to Italy to bring.
              2.      On this day in 2005 the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten  published 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to depict/Muslims in Denmark and around the world that the cartoons were blasphemous and totally sick/Islam is strongly aniconimistic and cartoons of the Prophet are viewed as a heinous sin/By January 2006, 250 reported deaths, attacks on Danish and other European diplomatic missions, attacks on churches and Christians, and a boycott of Denmark would begin/Islam has no tolerance when it comes to it faith/Free speech acts deemed an attack on it put the speaker in a very dangerous place.
              3.      On this day in 1968 the first wide body jet the 747 was to the public shown/Lower seat costs per mile for passengers flown/Longer distances to fly nonstop/Prices to fly coach would soon drop.  
              4.      On this day in 1954 USS Nautilus was commissioned/First ship powered by a nuclear reactor it would never have to surface while on a mission/Never would it run out of fuel to propel the ship/Only restraint was food to feed the crew to be free of hunger’s debilitating grip.
              5.      On this day in 1949 the Berlin Airlift was able to come to an end/Started on June 26, 1948 USAF planes to West Berlin were able 1,783,573 tons (76.4% of total) and the RAF 541,937 tons of supplies to send/In trying to blockade West Berlin into submission the Soviets lost/But in airplane crashes 71 American, Australian and British lives were the cost.
           Quote on the 747 by Richard Branson the founder of Virgin Airlines:
           In the '80's my gut feeling was that airlines were crap. I hated spending time on planes. I thought we could create the kind of airline I'd like. So we got a secondhand 747 and gave it a go.

            On the shutdown of the government front, McCarthy is bringing another last minute attempt to pass a spending bill to keep the government open but the minority Freedom Caucus does not look like it will budge and the Blues want nothing to do with the Reds’ plan to cut spending and increase border security so if McCarthy does not pull a rabbit out of the hat, by midnight Saturday, its partial shutdown time.
              On the strike front, Biden’s walking the UAW picket line produced nothing but ridicule, as the UAW is looking to expand the walkouts to put more pressure on the Big Three to come to an agreement which whatever the terms will be a bonus to nonunion plants in the U.S., especially if the Big Three cave in to the UAW’s demand for a 4 day work week with 5 days of pay.
            On weather front New York City and the Northeast are facing massive amounts of rain coupled with extensive flooding.
              On the Ukraine War front with Reds increasing choosing to ignore the lessons of 1938 Munich appeasement on the Sudetenland and leaning to reduce or end military aid to Ukraine, Russia has announced a 74% increase in its military budget, complaining that U.S. and NATO countries with their military aide is at war with Russia. Ukraine is making overtures to ordinary Russians to return the 20,000 Ukrainian children it claims have be removed to Russia and Russian speaking areas of Ukraine Russia has annexed. 
             On the peace in the Middle East front, the Israeli Minister of Tourism is visiting Saudi Arabia which marks the first time an Israeli minister has visited the Saudi Kingdom which may single expanded economic ties between the 2 nations.
             On the outrage over killing a Canadian Sikh front, protestors are marching in front of the Indian Embassy demanding an expulsion of the Indian Ambassador after Prime Minister Trudeau claimed Prime Minister Modi’s Administration orchestrated the killing of a Sikh leader in Canada.
             On the Newsom veto front, in what looked like a Newsom move to the center, he vetoed a bill providing for benefits to striking workers when the California Unemployment Compensation fund is already in a deficit and a bill that would have given nannies and housekeepers workplace protection.

              Noted Holidays:  World Heart Day created in 1991 by Antonio Bayés de Luna, World Health Organization and the World Heart Federation to create awareness of cardiovascular diseases and lifestyle changes to prevent them.
              Word of the Day: The word of the day is “azuline” which means the color Blue which if you are frustrated with a Blue supporter, use the world to describe him and see if he is educated enough to know what you mean.
              Song of the Day: The number 1 song on this day in 1977 was “Best of My Love” by The Emotions  on a run  of 5 weeks noncontinuous to share number 1 status with 29 other songs achieving number 1 ranking while 18 acts, including The Emotions, achieved number one status for the first time.  Here is a recording  of The Emotions  performing “Best of My Love”:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-Tb80rmPt4
             September 29 Birthdays: “Pursuing Power as a Way to Cut to the Quick in History”—Richard J. Evans, noted historian and author with an emphasis on Germany:,   born on this day in 1946 in Woodford, London to become an author of 18 books and a bitter foe of British historian, Holocaust denier and author David Irving whom he considers to be charlatan as a historian.
              September 29  Historical Events in Rhyme
              1.      On this day in 2007 the cooling towers of the Calder Hall, the world’s first nuclear power plant on the grid/ Used controlled explosions to its cooling towers rid/Had produced power since 1956 but decommissioning started in 2005/A reminder that if we are ever to become zero carbon emissions our nuclear power electricity generating plants we will have to revive.
              2.      On this day in 2004 Burt Rutan’s Space Ship One reached a 64 mile height/One more trip to reach similar distances above the Earth and eligible for the Ansari X prize for space flight/Backed by Microsoft founder Paul Allen $30 million to build the ship was spent/But on the second flight of 70 miles on October 4, 2004 only $10 million into Rutan’s pockets was sent/But knowledge gained/ Would mean that commercial space travel for long could not be restrained.
              3.      On this day in 2004 the Asteroid /Toutatis from Earth was less than 4 lunar units near/Enough to give us due to a collision some justified fear/With a diameter of 2.45 km and weighing 1.9×1013 kg a collision would cause massive and deadly devastation/Misnamed as the Celtic god of tribal protection/Don’t lose sleep as it will not approach again until 2069/To develop a defense of anti-asteroids nuke busting or deflecting missiles we have plenty of time.
              4.      On this day in 1988 with nerves on edge and fingers crossed/NASA launched mission STS 26, the first Space Shuttle Mission since the January 28, 1986 Challenger loss/Discovery launched flawlessly on the “Return to Mission Flight”/Its landing 4 days later safe and sound was a most welcome sight.
              5.      On this day in 1923 at Weequahic Park in Newark in the Garden State/To compete in a national track and field championship women no longer had to wait/11 events from the 50 and 100 yard dash, 60 yad hurdles and  4X110 relay race/To the high and long jump, discus and shotput toss and basketball and softball throw through the airspace/For women’s sports a historic moment and promotion/First steps to women’s long desire to compete in sports put in motion.
              Quote on preparation for a large asteroid striking Earth by Michio Kaku, noted American theoretical physicist and popular science writer:
              “Sooner or later, we will face a catastrophic threat from space. Of all the possible threats, only a gigantic asteroid hit can destroy the entire planet. If we prepare now, we better our odds of survival. The dinosaurs never knew what hit them.

Obstructed by the Freedom Caucus Saved by the Blues House Funding Bill For 45 Days Without Ukraine Aid Sails Through

 

The Gang of 21 Reds of the House Freedom Caucus stood their ground
Could care less of a disaster if the government was shut down
McCarthy in a corner had no choice but to their obstruction go around
Appealed to Blues for funding support which he quickly found
A 45 day funding bill with $16 billion additional for disaster relief
But no military aided for Ukraine which will cause them much grief
The Senate bill for funding does have money for Ukraine
Compromise between House and Senate needed or efforts go down the drain
The can so often in the Swamp has been kicked down the road
While the national debt keeps soaring for future generations a heavier load
The losers in this political mess
Must be the Gang of 21 causing such stress
Each of them should face primary challenges by budget hawks
Who while keeping principle when compromise is needed will not balk
Politics to be responsive to the peoples’ needs
Must never the siren call of my way or the highway heed
We still must pass a bill by House and Senate by midnight
But good chance 1 ½ months of continued funding are in sight

             On the immigration front, after meeting with Texas Red Rep. Gonzales, Elon Musk is doing what our MIA President and MIA VP is doing what they have failed to do go to ground zero of the illegals surge to see the flood to understand what we must do. Ayanna Presley who like a stuck record keeps claiming the border is secure should have gone with him to remove the secure border cataracts from her eyes.
              On the diplomatic front, Travis King an American Army soldier who bolted across the DMZ to enter North Korea to be immediately detained is back on U.S. soil again although the military appears clueless on what prompted his flight and Americans are unsure of what if any sanctions he will face. A rare case of successful diplomacy between the United States and North Korea without the payment of money by the United States or release of frozen assets.
             On the potential Biden impeachment front, the House opened an informal impeachment inquiry with impending threat of a government shutdown with Blues arguing that Biden himself received no money when the statutes cover receipt by spouse or close relative individuals who have received wire transfers of funds from foreign sources in the aggregate of more than $20 million.
             On the rising gas price front, the price of oil has moved to just north of $94 a barrel and the national average price of regular gasoline has risen to $3.83 with California leading the nation with an average price of regular gas at $6.079 and Mississippi in the envious position of having the cheapest gas at $3.246.
             On the AI front, high tech companies and the general population are awaiting the expected release of an executive order which will deal with permitted uses of AI protections relating to invasion of privacy. Unfortunately, there are no laws dealing with AI and critics are complaining that executive orders as opposed to congressional action are not the preferred method of trying to regulate the use of AI.
             On the labor relations front, the WGA strike has ended while the SAG strike is still ongoing and while late night talk shows are putting writers back to work, other shows and films may not be hot to trot to bring writers back to work when there are no actors available to deliver acting services for the scripts. The auto strike against the Big Three is slowly expanding in terms of the number of workers walking off their jobs due to the strikes. Even though needs another strike like a hole in the head, thousands of health care workers are poised to go on strike.
            On the retail legal front, the FTC, having sued Google for being a monopoly, is now suing Amazon in a suit joined by 17 state AG’s for exercising monopoly power to raise prices, reduce quality and stifle competitive innovation.
           On the criminal legal front, Sam Bankman-Fried the founder of the crypto currency company F-T-X who has been confined to jail due to violating the conditions of his parole is scheduled to start trial next week.  
            On the space front after 371 days in space aboard ISS due to a Soyuz Space Craft that had developed a coolant leak, Frank Rubio was finally able to return to Earth.

              Word of the Day: The word of the day is “axilla” which means armpit an area of the body that needs liberal applications of anti-perspirant.
              Song of the Day: The number 1 song on this day in 1978 was “Boogie Oogie, Oogie” by The Taste of Honey on a run  of 3 weeks to share number 1 status with 19 other songs achieving number 1 ranking while 11 acts, including Taste of Honey, achieved number one status for the first time.  Here is a recording  of the Taste of Honey performing “Boogie, Oogie, Oogie”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYWkG_DI5OE

              September 28  Historical Events in Rhyme
              1.      On this day in 2008 after 3 failed attempts to put a satellite launched by Falcon 1 into space/With Musk claiming SpaceX had to launch again as B/K it was about to face/Quickly another Falcon 1 was assembled with spare parts/To on this into space successfully depart/To become the first satellite put into orbit with a liquid fueled rocket by an organization privately financed/NASA no longer had a monopoly and private enterprise into space commerce could now advance.   
              2.      On this day in 1995 Yitzhak Rabin for Israel and Yasser Arafat for the PLO/Signed an agreement calling for more self-government in areas of the West Bank known as the 2nd Oslo/Another step to try to bring peace in this troubled land/Their signatures expected as after signing Oslo 1, both had Nobel Peace Prizes in their hands.
              3.      On this day in 1975 in London, 3 members of the Black Liberation Front/With a sawed off shotgun and two handguns entered the Spaghetti House to the staff confront/An attempted robbery that the staff thwarted by hiding sacks of money under tables on the floor/Then herded into the basement while the manager escaped through a back door/Police called and restaurant surrounded so the BLF members tried to a political cause create/Police knew it was only a robbery and   did not take the bait/One of the BLF members shot himself in the stomach on the 6th day when hostages released and robbers surrendered to prison face/The Stockholm Principle was alive and well as one of the hostages often visited one of the robbers in his prison place.
              4.      On this day in 1941/Fans witnessed some MLB history that will never again be done/Batted .406 to end the season/Why a .400 hitter will never be seen again is this reason/Today a complete game by a pitcher is a rare event/Even if allowing few hits or walks after some 100 pitchers a reliever to the mound is sent/ A fresh arm throwing not seen before sliders, sinkers, or blistering heat/Chances for hitters to get any hits easier to swing or caught looking down to defeat.                                       5


.      On this day in 1919 the nation witnessed a racial riot and lynching in Omaha/When an arrested alleged black rapist Willie Brown was subjected to lynch law/A mob of angry whites stormed the courthouse where he was jailed/Set it on fire and tried to hang the white reform mayor but fortunately failed/Broke into pawn shops to steal some 1000 arms/ Firing at police trying to protect Brown to inflict harm/Outnumbered the mob snatched Brown and hanged him, pumping his body full of lead/Even after it was very clear this suspect was dead/Then burned to a crisp the corpse with fire/Then their mob violence sated after U.S. Army troops arrived at 3:00 A.M. to their homes to retire/A terrible stain on this nation but what followed was probably worse/120 whites from the mob were indicted for their roles in the riot but few were prosecuted and all released without in prison a single day—a sad case of violent racism on display. Brown’s burned body after hanging admired by mob.                                                     

              Quote on the lynching of Will Brown by Californian Chris Hebert, who learned in a Henry Fonda television special of Omaha’s riot and Brown’s murder and purchased a headstone for his grave with “Lest we forget” engraved:
             
“It’s too bad it took deaths like these to pave the way for the freedoms we have today. . . . I got the headstone thinking that if I could reach just one person, it was well worth the money spent.”

Maher Leading the Chorus of Increasing Numbers of Blues Wanting Biden to From His Reelection Race Withdraw

 

In 1968 LBJ’s TV announcement that he would not seek reelection or accept a draft caught almost everyone in total surprise
LBJ justified intentions that his reelection was less important that bringing the divisive war in Vietnam to a demise
The Vietnam War was tearing us apart
McCarthy almost won the New Hampshire primary as a political upstart
But LBJ to even those closest to him seemed to be pedal to the metal to a second term win
To hint or even whisper he should not run for reelection would be castigated as a grievous political sin
Fast forward today unlike LBJ who was mentally alert and all energy cylinders running at full speed
We have a frail, stumbling, aging old man whose cognitive abilities are declining and have gone to seed
Even with Trump’s legal baggage and his negative numbers his chances are increasing he will win
Another fall, another McConnell like moment, never ending mental gaffs that cannot be concealed no matter how hard the spin
Now more and more voices from Blues are being heard
That the idea of an 82 year old in his condition starting a second term is absurd
Bill Maher is the latest to call on Biden to withdraw from his reelection race
Comparing his running to the damage caused by RBG’s refusal to resign and have Obama with a liberal SCOTUS Justice replace
If he does not and Harris remains on the ticket as his VP
More and more liberals believe a Red landslide they will really see
Unfortunately we may not see a déjà vu of 1968
As on October 9, 2023 RFK, Jr is expected to announce as a 3rd Party candidate
From the pool of Biden voters he will be a huge sucking sound
Almost certain guarantee Biden’s chances to win will crash down

RIP Diane Feinstein One of Stanford's Most Accomplished Alumni

 

The Wind of Freedom Blows Over Dianne Feinstein’s Grave 

The longest serving in the Senate has at age 90 died
In ill health, confined to a wheelchair and mentally barely holding on, her goal to serve out her term denied
The 3 Blue Reps vying to be appointed to her seat
Are moaning now their chances are doomed to defeat
Swalwell and Schiff are both white males
And Porter is a white female
Newsom, prepping the ground for a “replace Biden run”
Announce any appointed senator who is not a black female he would shun
Painful to see this senator suffering physically and mentally barely there
Wishing she could resign to enjoy what little time relishing in her stellar accomplishments as a senator and SFO mayor
Her many years in politics a tribute to Stanford that sends forth the brightest and the best
Except for the likes of Adam Schiff who totally fails all credibility tests
Will the 3 Blue Reps now be running to the appointed senator replace?
At least 2 and maybe all 3 will be out of office many Reds hope will be the case
Not sure if it must be a black woman who Newsom will chose
But if itis  Karen Bass the new mayor of L.A. all 3 Blue Reps would lose

NY Post Reduce Reds on Next Red Debate to 2 This Poet Suggests 3--Haley, De Santis and Bergum

 

This poet believes the third time is the charm
Good things come in threes so three on the stage would do no harm
 Clear 2 of the 3
 De Santis and Haley must be
And the third should be the seasoned business man on the stage
Especially as inflation and confrontation with China in all aspects will rage
Bergum is a job creator running a state
Not a career politician with over promises to his or her thirst for votes sate
May have to lighten his Addam's Family eyelashes
But he like Haley and De Santis will send Biden's campaign to crash
