November 8, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Radiology Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 8, 2016 Finally although there are still campaign ads appearing on TV, today is the day millions go to vote; people have made their minds up but if there is any doubt that Hillary if she wins she will owe here win to a totally corrupt and biases media especially CNN aka the Clinton News Networks as WikiLeaks just released show that icon of virtue Donna Brazille sent more questions in advance from CNN to HRC’s campaign; shifting to the non political front, Washington State University has banned the presence of alcohol at all student functions for the rest of the semester (being in Pullman during the winter would definitely make a student want to drink); the state attorney in Baltimore who showcased her ineptness and lack of judgment was caught violating Maryland law by filming her daughter in a voting booth filling out Ms. Mosley’s ballot (at least breaking with the proclivity of Blues in big cities to vote early and often, the ballot was not her young daughter’s); in another example of the grass is always greener on the other side of the pond, Prince Harry has confirmed his relationship with American actress Meghan Markle; in another example of why we need Kate’s Law, in Texas an illegal alien previously deported in 2014 has been arrested for killing his 10 year old cousin and stuffing her into a well; today we may be voting but in Chicago it’s guns they are still toting and in the first 7 days, another 7 black Americans have been shot and killed (probably higher the race and the name of the victims were not reported. Make sure you vote today.
         As Trump is trying to become more presidential, going to www.lyingcrookedhillary.com is a great way to start your day before you vote along of course with www.alaskanpoet.blogspot.com 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-- https://safeshare.tv/x/kXjbXGyQDsE
         As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Bad English, factoids of interest for this
day in history, a relevant quote from Daniel H.

5. Gone with the Wind and DUI—celebrating the birth on this day in 1900 of author Margaret Mitchell, most noted for Gone with the Wind who was tragically run over by a DUI driver who was convicted of manslaughter but served only 11 months. 
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1923 in Munich Adolf Hitler leads his Nazi Party in an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the Bavarian government; sadly he was not among the 16 Nazis killed in the failed putsch and even worse no one bothered to read Mein Kampf written by him during his all too short prison stay.
b. 1933 President Roosevelt who had experience running office as opposed to Obama whose experience was that of a community organizer formed the Civil Works Administration that created real shovel ready jobs for 4,000,000 Americans as opposed to Obama who spent billions and created almost none.
c. 1960 aided by what is believed to be massive voter fraud in Chicago due to the Daly machine, John Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon in one closest elections of the 20th Century wining the popular vote 49.72% to 49.55%. To his credit and something Trump needs to pay attention to if he loses, Nixon for the good of the country did not contest the election.    
d. 1966 to the joy of football fans everywhere, President Lyndon Johnson signed legislation granting an antitrust exemption to the National Football League so it could merge with the American Football League.
e. 1972 HBO commenced programming with its broadcast of Sometimes a Great Notion starring Paul Newman and Henry Fonda.
Reflections on the X-Rays and other scientific advances: “Over the past 50 years we got versions of X-ray specs and space vacations, and even death rays. But the X-ray specs don't fit on your face - they're big things that screen your luggage for guns. Space vacations are real, but they cost $20 million. We have death rays, but you have to be a triple Ph.D. to play with them.” Daniel H. Wilson, noted robotocist and author
