October 26, 2016 ridley's Believe It Or Not National Lung Health Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 26, 2016 Only 14 waning but increasingly vitriolic  and hypocritical days to go until the only polls that matter close; WikiLeak hacked emails show HRC co-chair stating private server was set up because “they wanted to get away with it” and the corrupted FBI under pressure from Obama and Lynch couldn’t find intent—what a crock; in another hypocrisy award performance HRC slams Trump for inciting violence (guess she hasn’t watched the tape of her thugs advocating voter fraud and violence at Trump rallies); great op ed by Laura Ingraham debunking mainstream media (aka HRC Super Pac) attacking Trump’s “isolationism”; in another sign of how bad this election has degenerated to, Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame awarded to him in 2007 was destroyed by a sledgehammer; more Wikileaks showing how Bill made his millions and the Foundation received millions (finally in response to the scandal and implications of pay to play, donations to the Foundation have experienced a huge drop); the Pentagon will not longer be railed against as the Grinch Who Stole Christmas by suspending its demands that soldiers return decades old enlistment bonuses paid to them; in another example of all the news that’s fit to slant the New York Times published a Staten Island 7 year old’s supposed dream about a zombie like Trump coming into homes and dragging Muslims away; on the sports note the Cubs in the first game of the World Series were clubbed by the Indians; in yet another example of what is wrong with our legal system Maria Caya, a fourth grade school teacher, who was fired by the Janesville, Wisconsin school district for passing out in a bowling alley restroom with a blood alcohol limit of .27 during a school field trip filed a $5.5 million lawsuit and settled for $75,000.
         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 fear from one of Ali’s foes: “In boxing, I had a lot of fear. Fear was good. But, for the first time, in the bout with Muhammad Ali, I didn't have any fear. I thought, 'This is easy. This is what I've been waiting for'. No fear at all. No nervousness. And I lost. George Foreman, former heavyweight champion who became close friends with Ali.
