November 28, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Cyber Monday

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 28, 2016 The delusion of the left over Fidel’s death continues to amaze-from Stein who praised him as a symbol for the fight for justice, to a real stooge and lousy quarterback Kaepernick who praised him before yesterday’s game with the Miami Dolphins (he was booed throughout and the 49ers lost yet again when this stooge was tackled on fourth down by the son of a Cuban-American immigrant and not to be outdone in the delusion race, BLM chimed in with praise for this brutal dictator; if I were Raul I might rethink my policies now that there is a new sheriff in town; “Run. Hide. Fight.” Is not the new Buckeye football cheer but the text sent out on Buckeye Alert notifying students of a shooting in which early reports indicated 10 were wounded (fortunately the scene is now secure and the shooting suspect dead); Jill Stein continues to raise money to fund recounts that may never happen in a classic bait and switch scam but effective to bolster the meager coffers of a failed party; in a really glaring case of typical Clinton hypocrisy Hillary who savaged Trump during the debate and campaign for “shredding the fabric of democracy) is now an avid supporter of the recount efforts of Stein (Hillary should be investigated thoroughly by a soon to be really independent DOJ and depending on the evidence and not her political hypocrisy prosecuted for her handling of classified information and for the pay to play corruption with the Foundation, Bill’s speaking fees and her tenure as Secretary of State with hopefully if convicted in the interests of national unity, her being pardoned by Trump if the Foundation is shut down and the Clintons agree never to form another one or run for any federal office or serve in any capacity in the federal government; David Petreaus is meeting with Trump as a possible Secretary of State as the controversy over Romney is not abating.     
        As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to the Frankie Carle, factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote from Dave Barry, while looking forward to enjoying some turkey leftovers from your Thanksgiving meal, 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.

1. Cyber Monday—celebrating the quickly growing trend of shopping on line as a great way to find bargains, parking spaces and total avoidance of crowds and hassles encountered in the malls.
2. National Turkey Leftover Day—celebrating an observance that reminds one of the regret “a day late and a dollar short,” as Thanksgiving was four days ago but if celebrated today whatever leftovers of turkey still remaining should be tossed or thrown out as tomorrow is Throw Out Your Leftovers Day.
3. 1946 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1946 on a run of 8 weeks in that position “Rumors Are Flying” by Frankie Carle.  Here is a recording of Frankie Carle performing the song:
4. National French Toast Day—celebrating another quick and easy breakfast treat.   
5. A True Sorority Fox May Be One But a Biased One Is Mean—celebrating the birth on this day in 1962 of Jonathan Leibowitz better known to his fans as Jon Stewart, noted comedian and talk show host who has had a running battle with Fox News that he calls the “Meanest Sorority in the World.”                                                        
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1814 The Times of London became the first newspaper to be printed on a steam powered printing press.
b. 1895 the first American automobile race took place from Chicago to Evanston, Illinois, a distance of 54 miles, which Frank Duryea won in a blistering pace of 10 hours, far slower than a competent super marathon runner could run the distance. .      
c. 1925 to the joy of country music fans the Grand Ole Opry began broadcasting in Nashville, Tennessee as the WSM Barn Dance.
d. 1942 in Boston, Massachusetts one of the nation’s premier night clubs, the Cocoanut Grove caught fire killing 492 patrons (30 more than authorized in the building) and workers and injuring hundreds—the worst nightclub fire in this nation’s history. 
e. 1972 Claude Buffet and Roger Bontems had the dubious distinction of being the last criminals guillotined in Paris at La Santa Prison. 
Reflections on shopping on this Cyber Monday: "Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice." — Dave Barry, noted humor columnist and author of Insane City, but here failed to insert the Ridley Addendum: “or shopping website.”    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.
