March 10, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Harriet Tubman Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For March 10, 2018 Another police officer shot and killed in the line of duty, this time in Pomona with his fellow officer wounded but fortunately in stable condition; the shooter at the Veterans’ Home in Yountville had been removed from one of its PTS programs by the clinical director who was one of the victims yesterday as calls are being raised to harden veterans’ facilities; Trump will be campaigning in Pennsylvania in a special House election he is hoping the rising tide of great economic success will translate to another Red victory and throw cold water on all the talk of a midterm Blue wave; Pelosi has become completely unglued on the illegal alien front by claiming with a straight face that we could stop the flow of illegals by “mowing the grass at the border so illegals would not be able to hide”; Sessions finally looks like he is getting ready to appoint a special counsel to investigate the FBI and DOJ over the FISA abuses and bias in favor of HRC; new survey out indicates something most of us know after seeing the large tent city along the Santa Ana River that California ranks dead last in terms of quality of life (Blues in control with an open border is the gift that keeps on giving sadly); in Chicago through March 8, 2018 401 people have been shot of whom 75 have died (Chicago is averaging two Parklands per month in terms of number of dead and the left and Blue leaders are silent while mostly minority shooters with handguns kill mostly minorities—a true definition of racism).

3. 2011 Number One Song— the number one song in 2011 on a run of 6 weeks in that position “Born This

4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “lour” which means to look sullen or threatening which Louis Farrakhan did in his rant against Jews and whites.
5. Nothing But Air—celebrating the birth on this day in 1958 of noted actress and model Sharon Stone who has starred in such movies as Total Recall, Basic Instinct and Casino. Definitely a sensuous lady whose scene of crossing and recrossing her legs in Basic Instinct indicated she was not wearing any underwear.

a. 1876 the first successful test of a telephone is performed by Alexander Graham Bell.

Reflections on aging: “You may be sick of what you did the first half of your life, but you don't have to just walk around and play golf or doing nothing. It's not like fifty is the new thirty. It's like fifty is the new chapter.” Sharon Stone 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.
