November 3, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Cliche Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 3, 2016 Only 6 waning but increasingly vitriolic and hypocritical days to go until the only polls that matter close; it is going from bad to worse for the Clinton campaign as reports out yesterday spoke of a 99% probability that her private server was hacked by at least 5 foreign intelligence agencies; the NYPD is investigating Wiener and possibly the Clintons for sexual perversions with minors; the FBI has made its pay for play investigation of the Clinton Foundation a top priority; the DOJ and Lynch are evidently doing everything possible to derail the FBI’s investigation and Obama has switched gears and is attacking Comey; polls are surging in Trump’s favor and given the rising stench of corruption surrounding the Clintons and her campaign Trump’s call to “drain the swamp” is striking a responsive chord among voters (feel sorry for those voters who have already voted as more and more revelations on Clinton corruption are surfacing; in another example of waste BART reported that one of its janitors made $225,000; more arrests of protestors trying to block the Dakota Access Pipeline; after 108 years the Cubs won another World Series 8-7 after 11 innings.
         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 Boston, factoids of interest for this
day in history, a relevant quote from President Ronald Reagan, while looking forward to enjoying your favorite sandwich, 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.  Culture Day—celebrated as a national holiday in Japan since 1948 to promote culture, the arts and academic endeavors. 
2. National Cliché Day—celebrating a way to make speech boring and uninteresting with the prolific use of clichés. Here is a great link to all the clichés your heart could ever seek:          
3. 1986 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1986 on a run of 2 weeks in that position “Amanda” by Boston. Here is a recording of Boston performing the song:
4. National Sandwich Day—celebrating that great invention by the Earl of Sandwich for people on the go and school children in schools without a cafeteria. 
5. Rain Delay or Tear Delay—celebrating the birth on this day in 1918 of Bullet Bob, Bob Feller a great pitcher for 18 seasons with the Cleveland Indians and the first pitcher in the 20th Century to throw three no hitters; fearing a loss, he must have been shedding tears over his beloved city that caused a rain delay at the end of the ninth inning with the score tied 6-6.   
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1783 the Continental Army was disbanded.
b. 1954 the first Godzilla was shown.    
c. 1957 Sputnik 2 was launched into Earth orbit carrying a dog Laika, the first animal to orbit the Earth on a one way ticket as technology to return satellites to Earth had not yet been developed.  
d. 1964 residents of Washington, D.C. were granted the right to vote for president for the first time.
e. 1986 the Lebanese newspaper Ash Shiraa reported that the United States had been secretly in blatant violation of the Boland Amendment selling arms to Iran to facilitate the release of seven Americans being held as hostage in Lebanon by Iranian backed terrorist groups and to fund the operations of the Contras in Nicaragua—the scandal came close to bringing down the Reagan presidency.
Reflections on how to admit error and apologize to the American people, a skill which neither Obama nor his clone has ever been well versed in: “First, let me say I take full responsibility for my own actions and for those of my administration. As angry as I may be about activities undertaken without my knowledge, I am still accountable for those activities. As disappointed as I may be in some who served me, I'm still the one who must answer to the American people for this behavior. And as personally distasteful as I find secret bank accounts and diverted funds - well, as the Navy would say, this happened on my watch." President Ronald Reagan, March 4, 1987 address from the Oval Office to the American people.  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.
