October 28, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Animation Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 28, 2016 Only 12 waning but increasingly vitriolic and hypocritical days to go until the only polls that matter close; scary times for Pence as his plane landing at LaGuardia slid off the runaway but fortunately no one was injured; the picture of the corruption surrounding the Clintons, their Foundation and her campaign get clearer with each WikiLeaks day—Podesta’s sister-in-law was hired by Raytheon along with two other note Clinton Foundation bundlers as lobbyists to obtain federal contracts worth over $23 billion; WikiLeaks show even her staff in pretty graphic terms were appalled over the creation and use of her private server; Michelle Obama was campaigning with HRC in North Carolina but seems to have forgotten her observation that between HRC and Barack it was a choice “about character” (it is it really is and HRC’s character is fatally flawed); in yet another example of why we cannot trust anything that originates from the swamp in D.C. the fed’s statistics for deaths from accidental shootings claimed that they had in Tennessee increased from 19 to 105 when in reality they had declined to 5, the lowest in years;  Twitter is laying off almost 10 percent of its workforce and discontinuing the Vine app; Game three tonight in the World Series at 5:00 P.M.PT
         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--
