November 2, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Epitaph Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 2, 2016 Only 7 waning but increasingly vitriolic and hypocritical days to go until the only polls that matter close; Trump in Florida before packed audiences slamming HRC on the issues like Obamacare while she continues to play the women’s card in a really spiteful and almost deranged manner, the momentum continues to move in Trump’s favor; Lynch and Comey met behind closed doors on the FBI investigation of her emails and the 650,000 stored on Weiner’s server (ironic as HRC wages a war on Trump as dangerous to women we have her husband and her trusted aide’s husband as classic examples of sexual predators); WikiLeaks clearly established the complete lack of integrity of CNN in its leaks of debate questions to Brazile; WikiLeaks established that Podesta is just as corrupt as his boss Hillary Clinton as a DOJ lawyer warned him of an investigation of her private email server (to no one’s surprise he immediately alerted Clintonites of the need to “dump” the emails which they did after receiving a Congressional subpoena; it would appear that the Clintons have known about the pervert Weiner’s sexting since 2011 but did nothing, probably because it would ruin the narrative that Hillary is for women;  on the sports note the Cubs trounced the Indians last night to force a game 7 in the World Series tonight.
         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 Stevie Wonder, factoids of interest for this
day in history, a relevant quote from Warren G.

5. A Return to Normalcy—celebrating the birth on this day in 1865 of Warren Harding, the first president to visit Alaska and who unlike Clinton and Trump campaigned for the presidency largely from his front porch but like Bill Clinton was somewhat of a sexual predator and even fathered a child with his mistress and after his death his administration like Clinton’s was mired in scandals that then came to life.   
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1898 cheerleading was introduced at college football games by Johnny Campbell at the University of Minnesota.
b. 1917 Britain, the same nation that created Iraq out of three antagonistic groups, the Kurds, Shiites and Sunnis, published the Balfour Declaration which promised a homeland in Palestine for Jews but also promised the right of non-Jewish residents would be respected. Sadly we have witnessed almost 100 years of chaos in Palestine.    
c. 1920 radio station KDKA in Pittsburgh became the first radio station to begin commercial broadcasting; its first broadcast was the results of the presidential election which put Warren Harding in office.

Harding Amen to that observation in an era of “crooked” Hillary and the “deplorables and unredeemables.”  Please enjoy the poems on events of interest on my twitter account below (if you like them, retweet and follow me) and follow my blogs.
