July 2, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not UFO Day r

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 2, 2017  Some signs from a Congress with major issues to resolve yet MIA of growing  demands that August recess will go away (with the internet and social media there is no reason that to their districts in August the Congress must return); Trump is looking more and more like a narcissistic petulant child with his tweets on Morning Joe hosts and a video of his appearing on WWE with a CNN logo superimposed on the wrestler he is throwing to the ground as his agenda may crash and burn (KellyAnne, Melania, and Eric for the sake of this presidency a need for restraint you must convey); Sen Paul mounted a scathing attack on the stalled replacement bill indicating that is loaded up like a Christmas Tree with spending additions (why in holy heaven did not the Reds have crafted a replacement bill during these last 8 years they were railing against Obamacare—they come across as a bunch of political Keystone Kops); the height of total inanity is being displayed by a few deranged Blue members of the House who want to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump as president (agree with him or disagree with him but these idiots are worthy of total scorn only); through 1 day into July as 21 people were shot one of whom died bringing through July 1, 1801 shooting victims with 316 fatalities (hopefully the ATF agents Trump has sent in will help put a damper on this carnage.
    As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to the Hues Corporaton, factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote by Tiny Tim, bemoaning the indigence of good bipartisan ideas to solve the issues that face us,  secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like 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. UFO Daypromoting the idea that we are not alone and encouraging humans to look up into the heavens to scan for UFOs (the date of July 2 was chosen to commemorate the supposed crash of a UFO at Roswell, New Mexico on this day in 1947).
2. Made in the USA Day—created in 1989 to promote American manufacturing not assembling of components that have been built elsewhere—if Trump would stop his infernal tweeting and focus on job growth, this nation would be in a much better place.
3. 1974 Number One Song—the number one song in 1974 on a run of 1 week in that position was “Rock the Boat” by the Hues Corporation. Here is a performance by the group performing the song:
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “indigence” which means poverty or being in a state of being needy which describe the Swamp to a T when it comes to ideas on how to end our gridlock.                 
5. A Failed Shoe In—bemoaning the birth on this day in 1929 of Ismelda Marcos, the wife of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos, who is best known for amassing millions of dollars and stocking her closet with over a 1000 pairs of expensive shoes while her people struggled to make ends meet.  
On this day in:                                                                                   
a. 1839 slaves off the coast of Cuba revolt and seize control of the slave ship Armistad.    
b. 1881 in a why did we not have the Secret Service present moment, Charles Guiteau shot President Garfield, who would later die.             
c. 1890 the Congress passed the Sherman Antitrust Act, outlawing monopolies.
d. 1962 the first Wal-Mart store was opened in Rogers, Arkansas.   
e. 1976 South and North Vietnam were united to form the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.   
Reflections on UFOs: “I read in one of the scandal sheets that there are UFO aliens living right now down deep in the Antarctic. I believe those things.” Tiny Tim.
