October 7, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Smile Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For October 7, 2016 Only 33 waning but increasingly vitriolic days to go until the only polls that matter close for Trump to continue his pivot before we elect a new president and if he has any chance of winning closes down his Twitter account for the duration and like Clinton concentrates on debate preparation; one prays for the Americans in the path of Hurricane Matthew as it heads toward Florida expecting to hit in several hours after leaving over 200 dead in Haiti;  two bankers boxes of emails from January, 2009 to April 2009 are missing (time frame when Hillary was having her private email server set up to break the law); in another typical example of Hillary’s complete lack of ethics and pay to play deal, Clinton tried to get Pentagon contracts for Chelsea’s best friend Jacqueline Deal’s consulting company who surprise, surprise is a vice chair of the Clinton Foundation; on the immigration front the Obama Administration is delaying over 56,000 deportation cases of illegal alien cases, many of whom will never appear and meld into the population of illegals; yesterday was Bring Your Bible To School day which some 300,000 school children actually did doubling the amount of kids who participated last year.     
         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--
