July 6, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Fried Chicken Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 6, 2017  The obese delusional leader of North Korea shows no sign of backing down on its ICBM program and China and Russia show no signs of stepping up to the plate (given the proximity of Seoul to the border and a growing realization of the insanity of believing sanctions will have any effect we face the increasing likelihood of the need to nuke North Korea back to the stone age); Trump is visiting Poland before meeting with Putin during the G-20 Meeting in Germany; Rep. Scalise is back in the ICU; CNN facing more backlash as it threatens to identify the maker of the anti-Trump video if he reneges on his promise not make any more such videos; the number  of police being killed in the line of duty has risen by 18%; Emily Lance wins the prize for stupidity and vulgarity for her Facebook video of her urinating on an  American flag; 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 July 4, in July 90 people have been shot in Chicago 12 of whom have died (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 Captain and Tennille, factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote by George W.

1. National Fried Chicken Daycelebrating that unique American staple.
2. National Air Traffic Control Day—created in 1986 by joint resolution of Congress and signed by President Reagan, the same president who fired all air traffic controllers who went on strike.

4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “incondite” which means poorly constructed which describes Obamacare to a tee.                 
5. Forty-Three By a Chad—bemoaning or celebrating depending on one’s point of view, the birth on this day in 1946 of George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States.

Reflections form a former president that Obama should heed:    “I have zero desire, just so you know, to be in the limelight. I don't think it's good for the country to have a former president criticize his successor. You're not going to see me giving my opinions in the public arena, until I start selling my book. I'm going to emerge then submerge.” George W. Bush 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.
