November 10, 2017 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 10, 2017  In a victory against the PC culture that is killing this country, a court has reversed the conviction of a Marine Corps sniper in a court martial for urinating on the bodies of several dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan due to excessive influence of several high ranking Marines in the process (Semper Fi for justice in the war on terror); the obese lunatic is allowing some internet access in the Hermit Kingdom, albeit limited (if the citizens of that country ever learned what is happening in the world outside their borders, Kim would be gone in a nanosecond; news today out of Vietnam is that Trump and Putin will not have a formal meeting during the APEC conference in Vietnam which is a shame as Putin needs to join the rest of the world in cutting the economic nuts off this deranged obese lunatic; that flaming socialist Elizabeth Warren is backpedaling from her earlier claim that the Democratic primaries were rigged as Donna Brazile has rightfully claimed; In another example of academic freedom barking up the wrong tree and running amok 70 Cornell professors have come to the defense of an ideologue posing as a credible professor, George Ciccariello-Maher  of Drexel who has blamed the shootings in Las Vegas on white victimization (pity the poor students who might be exposed to this biased idiot if he ever gets back in the classroom); in another example of what is wrong with the legal system in this country a man reaching for a watermelon broke his foot, sued Walmart and was awarded by a sympathetic jury $7.5 million; in a refreshing example of the fact that while guns do kill, they also protect the innocent, a Florida father came to the aid of his daughter who was in the process of being kidnapped and discharged his gun causing the 4 teenage scumbags to flee and ultimately be caught and arrested by police; through November 8, 2017 3211 mostly minorities shot by mostly minorities have been shot in Chicago, of whom 560 have died.
