July 28, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Hepetitis Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 28, 2016. Only 176 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term and 236 days since hiding Hillary has held a formal press conference (where is the outrage of the press?) a fact which Trump pointed out yesterday morning at his press conference of over an hour in front of a potentially hostile press in what has to rank as one of the best press conferences this poet has witnessed in a very long time; feel sorry that a true patriot Leon Panetta was drowned out by rabid attendees at the DNC; Trump was slammed again and again by Blumberg, Biden and Obama as not being fit to be president while Obama insulting the legacies of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams, Eisenhower and LBJ touted Hillary as the most qualified person ever to run for president (she is certainly more qualified than Obama but other than that quite a stretch); a tidbit on the DNC is that per a Hillary edict, no uniformed police were to be seen in the CNC hall; Trump is not going dark and is on the stump today; three days into the convention and not a word on ISIS as the world remains in flames due to this radical Islamist ideology—we need to start praying for the next president for Obama’s two terms have created a mess of unfathomable proportions to deal with this barbaric force that threatens civilization.
      On the you should be outraged front, in Alexandria, Virginia a female cop in uniform was denied service at a Noodles and Company restaurant and the VA spent $20 million on art work while vets were dying because of wait time.

Reflections on hepatitis on World Hepatitis Day: “HBV is 100 times more infectious than HIV. Both HBV and HCV can remain in the patient’s blood for years without any symptoms, and by the time the disease is detected, the patient would already have a severe form of liver disease. But both viruses are treatable, and results of the treatment, lasting from about 28 to 48 weeks and including anti-viral tablets with sometimes weekly interferon injections, are very good.” » Dr Dinesh Kini, noted renown physician in the fight against hepatitis.    Please enjoy the poems on events of interest on my twitter account below (if you like them, retweet and follow me) and follow my blogs.
