October 20, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Osteoporosis Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 20, 2016 Only 20 waning but increasingly vitriolic days to go until the only polls that matter close; other than the “nasty woman” comment (true in spades but bad move) and refusal to accept results of the election (bad move but I think like Al Gore did in Florida, Trump would do if evidence of voter fraud found and seek recounts and court action), Trump turned in stellar performance and Hillary came across as she always does unlikable, scripted and deceptive and in somehow blaming Trump for alleged hacking of the DNC and staff emails by Russia as portraying a sign of potential desperation; the interim chief of the DNC Donna Brazile despite new WikiLeaks to the contrary in a total unbelievable interview denied providing Hillary with an advance question in a town hall meeting in March (another example of ends justify the means and why the Hillary campaign will do anything to win); in a better late than never moment after really disturbing videos were released of Blue operative Scott Foval counseling supporters on how to commit voter fraud and violently disrupt Trump rallies, the DNC fired him; in another I told you so Iran is now demanding more billions from us to release several new hostages (what about how to deal with this rogue nation does our feckless weak president not understand and when do we start blowing their mouse that roared navy out of the water when they threaten our ships in international waters?).
         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 and if you want some music in your life with a little satire--

 Reflections on osteoporosis from a great beauty: “I take a multivitamin, I take extra C, I take chondroitin and glucosamine for my joints, I take calcium for my bones. And by the way, weight-bearing exercises can help ward off osteoporosis and yoga helps ward off arthritis.” Raquel Welch Sign me up yoga classes.
