May 12, 2013 Ridley's Believe It Or Not International Nurses Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For May 12, 2017  The left and mainstream media continue to go absolutely ballistic on the firing of James Comey the man they delusionally blamed for the most failed candidate’s from the Democratic Party in modern times loss throwing out the “I” word and demanding hearings (the FBI investigation of the false Trump collusion goes on—chill out Cummings); the hypocrisy from the media that should cause anyone to cancel any subscription defies description—from total pariah because of his involvement in the Clinton e-mail scandal to total martyrdom because he was fired; Brown takes a half hearted step when this Blue hack should have been fired by reducing the budget of the UC system by $50 million due to allegations of Napolitano’s secret slush fund while raising tuition and pleading for more money (better than nothing but this inept bureaucrat who has allowed to suppression of free speech should be canned); Sessions announced that for federal drug crimes the DOJ will seek maximum sentences which ignores the disease component of addiction and if applied to users is a very bad idea; an executive order from Trump has created a commission to study voter fraud which whether one is a Blue or Red should concern us all if illegals are voting, dead people are voting, or if people are voting more than once (watch for the left to go ballistic if recommendation of voter ids are promulgated); in just another example of why we need a wall, a six year old is fighting for his life after being in hit by an illegal DUI alien who had been deported 15 times (how many citizens have to be put at risk before the left finally says enough and gets serious with the rest of us to secure the border)?; almost a stuck record or a remake of Groundhog Day, Chicago style,  the carnage in Chicago continued unabated in May  with total shootings in 2017 through May 10 increasing by 23 to 1146 and the death toll by 5 to 198 a major tragedy that the powers to be in Chicago seem to completely ignore.

1. International Nurses Daycelebrating on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth in 1820 the invaluable  contribution of nurses to the care of patients who are the only defense between a patient and the two legged gods of the earth doctors whose bedside manner often sucks and whose ego is too often off the charts. 
2.Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Day—promoting awareness of an affliction that may affect over a million Americans that is not solved by another cup at Starbucks but which affects adversely that person’s ability to perform work and basic life tasks. 
3. 2013 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 2013 on a run of 5 weeks in that position “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton. Here is a recording of them  performing the song:
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “floccinaucinihilipilification” which means estimating something as worthless which given the amount of letters used here describes the word but certainly better suited to our long winded politicians.   
5. In A Cloud Of Smoke—celebrating the birth on this day in 1936 of late night TV shows pioneer Tom Snyder who despite his trademark cloud of smoke in his show managed to dodge the lung cancer bullet but still died of leukemia at the age of 71.
On this day in:                                                                                   
   a. 1551 the oldest university in the New World, the University of San Marcos, was founded in Lima, Peru. 
b. 1784 the Treaty of Paris, ending the Revolutionary War which was signed on September 3, 1783, took effect.
c. 1933 the Agricultural Adjustment Act designed to control production by granting subsidies to farmers for not growing food was signed into law.      
d. 1949 the Soviet Union lifted its blockade of Berlin.   
e. 2008 ICE conducted the largest workplace raid in our history in Pottsville, Iowa arresting 400 illegals; no wonder we need an ironclad e-verify and strict enforcement against employers who hire illegals. 
Reflections from a late night TV host that are probably on point: “When everything is coming your way, you're probably in the wrong lane.” Tom Snyder 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.
