September 12, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Day of Encouragement

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 12, 2017 Seattle's left wing gay mayor Ed Murray has joined the ranks of sexual predators that have had their careers ruined by their reptilian brains and is resigning effective close of business tomorrow amidst allegations brought by five men that he had molested them sexually when they were children; Florida residents are slowly being allowed to return home and are meeting not a pretty sight—damaged homes, rotting food, mildew, standing water and no power—total disaster with damages in the billions upon billions of dollars; even though only a tropical storm Irma is creating a lot of misery in Georgia and South Carolina with lots of rain, flooding and loss of power; on the PC front Susan Jaffe has made the idiotic argument that trying to prevent looting in the aftermath of Irma is evidence of white supremacy; Hillary is on the delusion trail trying to convince people to shell out hard money to buy a rag that is a text book of mental illness in the form of delusion and inability to accept the reality of her loss; three Clinton lawyers including Cheryl Mills are in hot water with the Maryland bar as a judge has referred them to the state bar for destruction of evidence; Congressman Gutierrez who is the poster child of why we need term limits for these denizens of the Swamp was appropriately slammed by General Kelley after that wimp called him a disgrace to the uniform he once wore; on the hacking front, North Korean hackers have targeted Bitcoin accounts to try to raise money for the fat lunatic’s regime after the UN has imposed stiffer sanctions on the rogue nation (when will we have the intel to pinpoint his whereabouts and kill him?); through September 11, 2017 in Chicago the number of people being shot climbed to 2664, and the death toll again on the rise to 457.
As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to the Crew Cuts, factoids of interest for this day in history, a relevant quote on the 9-11 Museum from 44 Ecclesiastics, hoping you are free of kakidrosus,  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.

4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “kakidrosus” which means body odor and why one’s bathroom cabinet should never be out of Right Guard.      
5.  No Luck No Wins—celebrating the birth on this day in 1989 of noted Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck who sadly for the Colts may be sidelined until October.
On this day in:                       
a. 400 B.C. at Marathon, the Athenians and their allies defeated a much larger Persian army sent by King Darius with the result that Persians were kept out of Greece for 10 years and due to the legend of Pheidippedes running the 26 miles back to Athens to inform the Greeks of their victory sports fans now have the marathon.
b. 1857 the SS Central America returning from California with 12-15 tons of gold from California sunk some 150 miles from Cape Hatteras drowning 426 passengers and crew and sending the nation into the Panic of 1857. The ship was located in 1986 and gold worth $100-$150 million was recovered.
c. 1937 Leo Szilard while waiting at a red light for a train crossing conceived the idea of a nuclear chain reaction and the race to the atomic age had begun. 
d. 1957 Jack Kilby demonstrated the first integrated circuit while working at Texas Instruments.
e. 2012 the 9/11 Museum opened to the public.
Reflections on the 9/11 Museum honoring the victims and first responders: Their seed shall remain for ever, and their glory shall not be blotted out. Their bodies are buried in peace; but their name liveth for evermore.” 44 Ecclesiastics. How true how very true.
