October 27, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Beer Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 27, 2016 Only 13 waning but increasingly vitriolic  and hypocritical days to go until the only polls that matter close; so far this morning no damning WikiLeaks on the dishonesty of HRC have been released but the day is not yet over but emails show that the real puppet master is not Putin over Trump (ludicrous claim) but Uber liberal George Soros over Clinton (in a chilling thought as we have growing concerns over hacking of our voting process 16 states are using voting machines supplied by a George Soros company leading to the question will the results be accurate or tilted to favor Hillary?); Trump opened up a great new hotel under budget under time in Washington, D.C. while the candidate who has never, ever created a legitimate lasting job in the private sector blasted his business skills; Obama exposed once again for lying to the American people over his knowledge of Hillary’s private email server (would be awesome for voters to read the emails withheld due to executive privilege between this felon and Obama); the Obamacare premium hikes that Obama desperately wanted to delay are being received by voters and the Blues should really be concern over voter anger on the bill shoved down their throats by Obama, Reid (thank God retiring) and Pelosi (pray that this tyrant is not again the Speaker of the House); in the sports sector the Cubs prevailed in game two and the World Series is now tied.
         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--
         As always, I hope  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Herb Albert,  factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote from Tina Fey,  while looking forward to  enjoying your favorite potato dish, 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.

On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1838 the governor of Missouri, Lilburn Boggs in a Constitution be damned moment issued an order requiring all Mormons to leave the state or be exterminated. What is amazing is that not until 1976 was the executive order rescinded by then Governor Kit Bond and an official apology issued to Mormons.   
b. 1936 Mrs. Wallis Simpson obtained her divorce enabling her to marry King Edward VIII and forcing him to abdicate from the throne and leading Queen Elizabeth II, his brother’s daughter, to ultimately become England’s longest serving monarch.  
c. 1964 Ronald Reagan launched his political career by delivering a speech in favor of Barry Goldwater who lost in a landslide notwithstanding the effort; the speech became known as “The Time for Choosing.”
d. 1967 as a sign of growing opposition to the Vietnam War Catholic priest Phillip Berrigan and three others of the “Baltimore Four” poured their blood mixed with chicken blood for added volume over Selective Service records located at the Customs House in Baltimore.
e. 1992 U.S Navy radioman Alen Schindler, Jr. was murdered by fellow shipmate Terry Helvey for being gay which led the policy, recently rescinded of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” when dealing with issues of sexual orientation.   
Reflections on beer on National Beer Day: “In a study, scientists report that drinking beer can be good for the liver. I’m sorry, did I say ‘scientists’? I meant Irish people.” Tina Fey, noted comedienne and fantastic imitator of Sarah Palin.
