June 4, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Hug Your Cat Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 4, 2017 London’s butcher bill is being tallied after yesterday’s cowardly attack by three radical Islamists-7 dead and 48 injured and 3 sick fanatics sent on their delusional one way ticket to Paradise where they will find the gates closed and the virgins throwing rocks at them; Brits have arrested 12 suspected accomplices; CNN’s biased “journalist” Reza Aslan stoops to new lows of decency and respect by tweeting that President Trump is a piece of shit (it truly takes one to be able to be presumed to know one); Susan Rice is on the Sunday talk shows arguing that Trump’s ban will not make America safer as if she has any credibility with the American people other than the leftist zealots in the MSM; one hopes that the lunatic in North Korea has a translator that speaks Russian as Russia at a security conference in Singapore where General Mathis declared North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile program to be a “clear and present danger” stated in no uncertain terms that North Korea’s nuclear weapons program constitutes a “direct threat to Russia”); a slight crack in the PC Thought Curtain that has infected American colleges and universities may be appearing at MIZZOU where freshmen enrollment has dropped 35% and where the new chancellor has issued the clarion call for diversity of thought; Rahm Emanuel’s top priority for Chicago seems to be making it the premier sanctuary city in the country as the carnage continues unabated in June with total shootings in 2017 through June 3 increasing to 1420 and the death toll increasing to 244, a major tragedy that the powers to be in Chicago seem to completely ignore except for those fortunate enough to own a mortuary.
    As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Percy Faith, factoids of interest for this day in history, hoping your day is an illecebrous one, a relevant quote from Angelina Joliesecure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like Fathers’ Day, 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. You need only contact me for details.
1. Hug Your Cat  Day—if a cat lover/owner this is an observance idea that should be celebrated daily not just one day of the year, especially if one’s cat is well trained and uses a litter box and does not scratch the sofas.
2. International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression—created by the United Nation in 1982 to combat and prevent violence against children, be emotional, mental or physical.    
3. 1953 Number One Song—the number one song in 1953 on a run of 10 weeks in that position was “The Song From Moulin Rouge” by Percy Faith and his orchresta. Here is a performance by them of the song: .
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “illecebrous” which means enticing or attractive which the gridlock in the Swamp is definitely not.         
5. Proactive Not Reactive--celebrating the birth on this day in 1975 of noted actress, director and producer Angelina Jolie who when confronted with the reality that she carried a gene that makes it highly likely she will develop breast cancer before age 50 underwent a double mastectomy and although probably not related filed for divorce from her third husband Brad Pitt.  
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1411 King Charles VI granted a monopoly to the residents of Roquerfort-sur-Soulzon to ripen Roquerfort cheese.    
b. 1876 the United States became a much smaller place with the arrival in San Francisco of an express train the Transcontinental Express 83 hours and 39 minutes after leaving New York City.    
c. 1912 Massachusetts became the first state to pass a minimum wage law applicable only to women and children under the age of 18 with no penalties for failure of employers to abide other than publishing their names and handed over the power to set minimums to a commission. 
d. 1939 in one of our darker days in history the MS St. Louis carrying 963 Jewish refugees from Germany was denied permission to land in Florida and forced to return to Germany where some 200 passengers unfortunate enough not to be able to otherwise flee were exterminated in concentration camps.        
e. 2010 SpaceX successfully launched its first Falcon 9 rocket from the John F. Kennedy Space Center.      
Reflections on love from one very courageous woman: We come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” Angelina Jolie Wise words, wise words indeed and if followed might dramatically cut our staggering divorce rate. 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.
