September 29, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Heart Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 29, 2016 Only 41 waning but vitriolic days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president; Comey came under attack yesterday for granting immunity to top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills for obstruction of justice as Clinton aides wiped her server clean after the House issued a subpoena to preserve all documents (no wonder the vast majority even almost Blues believe Clinton is untrustworthy--; Trump is gearing up massive ad buy as millions are now flowing into his campaign); Libertarian Gary Johnson has another Aleppo moment his mind “froze up in another Aleppo moment during another interview with MSNBC not being able to name his favorite foreign leader (as we get older not uncommon to have a “senior moment” but one wonders if Larson was having another “weed moment”); in a desperate  to energize her campaign and lackluster millennial support Clinton and Sanders were campaigning together in New Hampshire while a First Lady who has class (as opposed to when it comes to the appearance of pay to play a potential First Man who does not) was campaigning for Hillary); we all  know that smoking is lethal for your health but so evidently is vaping as El Cajon police shot and killed a black man suffering from mental problems caught on video pointing a vaping device at police; the campaign when it comes to issues than people really care about like jobs and safety is aping the death spiral of Obamacare as Clinton blatantly doubles down on the sexist card with a 20 year old alleged claim of bullying by a former Miss Venezuela against Trump  who is also alleged to have threatened to kill a Venezuelan judge who indicted her boyfriend for attempted murder (about the same time ago as Bill Clinton was having his sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky and Hillary was lashing out against “bimbos”); on a final and more optimistic note time to pray for the Cardinal as they meet a very talented Washington team in Seattle this Friday—Go Stanford!  
          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 Les Paul and Mary Ford,  factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote from Hugh Jackmans, while  looking forward to sipping a hot mocha (killer recipe for an almond mocha below), 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.
