May 10, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Lupus Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For May 10, 2016 Unfortunately still 255 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term. Very  exciting political theater as West Virginia, an important coal mining state that HRC wants to put out of business, votes today; latest polls show Trump and HRC in a dead heat in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida and on the ISIS front another radical Islamist went on a stabbing rampage in Germany and for intel purposes was captured alive. Knowing full well that since HRC is represented by counsel the FBI would never contact her about testifying before them but she continues to deceive the American public that she has not be contacted but a dime against a dollar her lawyers have. As money from Wall Street continues to pour into her campaign, HRC continues to refuse to release her speech transcripts which probably reveal her advice that Wall Street has nothing to worry from her administration. As always, I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start looking forward to enjoying a taco special or better yet a Popeye’s Fried Chicken two piece special for only $1.49 and that  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances,  music links to Mariah Carey and Bill Haley and His Comets, factoids of interest, a  relevant quote from J. Edgar Hoover, while looking forward to enjoying some shrimp, blessed with a positive attitude and  secure in  the knowledge that, if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like 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. You need only contact me for details.
1. Golden Spike Day—celebrating the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah with Governor Leland Stanford driving in the ceremonial golden spike to signify completion.     
2. World Lupus Day—promoting awareness of an autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the human body but is treatable with drugs.  
3. 1996 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1996  on a run of two weeks in that position Always Be My Baby  by Mariah Carey. Here’s a link to Mariah Carey performing Always Be My Baby: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfRNRymrv9k
4.  National Shrimp Day—celebrating really tasty sustainable seafood whether grilled, boiled or fried; absolutely cannot go wrong with a plate of shrimp or a shrimp cocktail.
5.  Codependency Is Not a Mother’s Role—celebrating or observing the birthday on this day in 1957 of Sid Vicious, the bassist for the punk rock band Sex Pistols who died of a heroin overdose at the age of 22 from heroin supposedly procured for him by his mother.
On this day in
a.  1837 banks in New York City announced they would no longer redeem commercial paper at full face value setting off the Panic of 1837 which would last for seven years with unemployment as high as 25 percent and a period of banks failing and intense deflation.
b.  1872 Victoria Woodhull of the Equal Rights Party became the first woman to be nominated to run for President of the United States. Hopefully, like HRC today, she was unsuccessful.
c.  1924 J. Edgar Hoover was appointed as the first director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and most likely due to the files he surreptitiously assembled on most politicians including presidents remained in office until his death in 1972.
d.  1954 Bill Haley and His Comets released Rock Around the Clock, the first but not the last rock and roll song to reach number one on Billboard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgdufzXvjqw
e.  2013 One World Trade Center became the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
Reflections on the true source of crime: No amount of law enforcement can solve a problem that goes back to the family. J. Edgar Hoover Sadly, how true it is.
