May 11, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Receptionists Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For May 11, 2016 Unfortunately still 254 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term. Very  exciting political theater Trump is coming to Washington, D.C. to meet with Paul Ryan and leaders of the Republican Senate and House to pursue unity while Romney who ran the most pathetic campaign in history while losing to Obama continues to rail against Trump who has set a record for the most votes in the Republican primaries; HRC continues to dismiss the FBI’s investigation as merely a “security review” as a miffed  director of the FBI declares he doesn’t know what HRC is talking about; HRC continues to refuse to release her speech transcripts and Trump is dodging releasing his tax returns, citing the fact they are under audit. As always, I hope your Wednesday is off to a great start and that  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, factoids of interest, a  relevant quote from Daniel Ellsberg, while looking forward to enjoying whatever you want to eat today, 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. National Twilight Zone Day—celebrating the imaginative and creative television show The Twilight Zone, created, written and directed by Rod Sterling that captivated audiences for over five years.   
2. National Receptionists Day—celebrating the achievements of professional receptionists who are usually the first person a client or customer will meet and whose demeanor and skills can create a great impression or sour a potential relationship before it even starts. 
3. 1996 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1996  on a long run of eight weeks (do not understand why anyone would listen to this garbage time to go back to rock and roll) in that position Tha Crossroads by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Here’s a link to these rappers Bone Thugs-N-Harmony performing Tha Crossroads:   
4. National  Eat What You Want Day—celebrating that rebel streak we all have; today would be a perfect day to ignore all the warnings of what you should or should eat and splurge on what you enjoy—after all yesterday’s pariahs of bacon and eggs are today’s health food.      
5. Horse and Alcohol Don’t Mix Wellcelebrating the birthday on this day in 1982 of Cory Monteith, a Canadian born actor who struggled with drug and alcohol abuse since the age of 12 and died alone from a heroin overdose mixed with alcohol in a Vancouver hotel room.                                                                            
On this day in:
a. 868 the Diamond Sutra, the oldest known dated book was printed in China. 
b. 1927 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was founded in Los Angeles.    

c. 1973 citing governmental misconduct, a federal district court judge dismissed all charges filed against Daniel Ellsberg for releasing the Pentagon Papers which revealed the level of deception of the Pentagon involving our involvement in the Vietnam War to the New York Times.                                                                   

d. 1997 IBM’s Deep Blue, a super computer defeated world chess champion Garry Kasparov, becoming the first computer to defeat a world chess champion.   

e. 1998 India became the sixth country to develop nuclear weapons by detonating three nuclear devices, one of which was a hydrogen bomb.     

    Reflections on the  role of government in dealing with the American people: “Look, all administrations, all governments lie, all officials lie and nothing they say is to be believed. That's a pretty good rule.” Daniel Ellsberg Ellsberg is definitely on point but sadly from “If you like your health insurance you can keep it,” to the deception over the nature of the Iran nuclear deal, Obama not only has refined the art of lying and deception to an art form and his minions are quick to tout that because Obama “knows what is best for the American people.” As we have seen his clone HRC is also a master of lying and deception, totally dishonest and not worthy of occupying the White House especially when her occupancy comes with the First Man, also known as the First Sexual Predator.
