August 31, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not We Love Memoirs Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For August 31, 2016 Only 69 waning days to go for Trump to pivot before we elect a new president and 268 days since hiding Hillary has held a formal press conference (where is the outrage of the press as she refuses to answer any questions from the press; what is this candidate trying to hide?); in the scandal that will not recede, the FBI whose integrity has been damaged by its refusal to recommend prosecution of HRC will be turning over its HRC interview notes as we await with baited breath the answers under penalty of perjury (which hasn’t deterred her in the past) to questions from Judicial Watch to be given by September 30; in an interesting development Trump will be meeting with the President Nieto of Mexico; McCain, Rubio and unfortunately rabid ideologue Debbie Wasserman Schulz won their primaries last night; September 26 and the first presidential debate is rapidly approaching; on the sports front Lochte has picked up another sponsor, Hope Solo has been terminated from U.S. Women’s Soccer for six months and Kaepernick is really taking heat for his refusal to stand for the national anthem (his newly discovered political awareness stems from dating BLM activist Nessa Diab); on the weather front, Hawaii is facing two side by side hurricanes; Florida is bracing for massive rainfall and in a what global warming moment, Colorado Springs has been buried under two feet of hail.
        As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to is a great way to start your day along of course with and reading Clinton Cash would be a great read to understand the quid pro quo mentality of the Clintons.
       As always, I hope  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to George Michael, factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote from David Frost, while looking forward to enjoying some trail mix,  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. Love Litigating Lawyers Day—given the public disgust with lawyers especially ambulance chasers and divorce lawyers hard to believe there is an observance to honor them but in the case of the lawyers for Judicial Watch who have exposed Hillary’s criminal performance in her use of a private email server lawyers can better society.     
2. We Love Memoirs Day—created by authors Victoria Twead and Alan Parks in 2013 to form a Facebook community where writers of memoirs could exchange writing ideas.             
3. 1988 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1988 on a run of two weeks in that position “Monkey” by George Michael. Here is a link to George Michael performing the song.
4. National Trail Mix Day—don’t go hiking or camping without this lightweight high energy snack.  
5. Where Are The Drones When You Need Them?—bemoaning the birth on this day in 1960 of Hassan Nasrallah, the current leader of the terrorist organization Hezbollah which has launched thousands of rockets against the state of Israel.

Reflections on the legal profession:This is what has to be remembered about the law; beneath that cold, harsh, impersonal exterior beats a cold, harsh, impersonal heart.” - David Frost, British Journalist, TV Personality
