March 19, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Certified Nurses Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For March 19, 2018 On the potential terrorist front, Austin has been hit with another bombing, its fourth with this one being detonated by a trip wire sending two victims to the hospital with injuries; on the rhetoric front the Blues continue to foment dangerous over the top rhetoric against President Trump with the latest being spewed by Rep. Suozzi of Long Island, another Swamp denizen who has not worked in the private sector, who at a town hall meeting urged attendees to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights against the president if he fails to follow the Constitution (when will these Pelosi delusionists throw away the dog whistles of violence and accept the fact their failed and pathetic candidate lost?); Blue Council Member in the Swamp Trayon White, Sr. let his stupidity and bias get the better of him when he blamed the recent storm hitting New England on the Jews who in his mind are responsible for climate change (this is what the face of anti-Semitism looks like and sadly it is alive and well among far too many blacks in the Swamp); Ralph Ellison, the rabid leftist who is the Deputy Chair of the DNC, is desperately back pedaling from the rabid bigot Louis Farrakhan who earlier in his political career he had supported; really refreshing news out of Saudi Arabia from the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who as he pushes the modernization of that feudal country has declared the women are absolutely the equal of men; Schiff like many of his Blue colleagues continues to make a fool of himself by criticizing the firing of felon Andrew McCabe; hiatus on being shot to death in Chicago is over with through March 18, 2018, 454 people shot, of whom 86 have died.

5. Die Hard But Bald Easy-- celebrating the birth on this day in 1955 of action movie hero Bruce Willis whose violent movies make a mockery of Hollywood celebrities’ efforts to impose gun control on their law abiding fans.
          On this day in:                                                               
a. 1945 With the Soviets closing in on Berlin and realizing the war was lost
Adolf Hitler ordered that all factories and the country’s infrastructure be destroyed, an order which Speer and the German Army wisely ignored.
b. 1954 Willie Mosconi set a record that still stands by sinking 526 balls without a miss at an exhibition at the
East High Billiard Club in Springfield, Ohio.
c. 1962 Bob Dylan released his first album Bob Dylan.
d. 1982 Argentine Marines landed on South Georgia Island in the Falklands precipitating the Falklands War which Argentina lost along with 649 of its troops.
e. 1987 in another example of the reptilian brain running wild, televangelist Jimmy Bakker hit by a growing sex scandal was forced to resign as leader of the PTL Club and turn the reins over to Jerry Falwell.
Reflections on gun control that is frank and honest not hypocritical: “If you take guns away from legal gun owners, then the only people who would have guns would be the bad guys. Even a pacifist would get violent if someone were trying to kill him or her. You would fight for your life, whatever your beliefs.” Bruce Willis He is spot on right with that observation and after the Parkland shooting it is clear that even having a cop on scene is not a guarantee of safety.  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.
