March 4, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Restart Iditarod Race Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For March 4, 2018 On the war on illegal alien front, ICE in raids in the Bay Area has arrested 232 illegal aliens, 180 of whom were convicted criminals (the mayor of Oakland should be prosecuted and thrown in jail for issuing warnings to flee the city to avoid arrest); at the Gridiron Dinner Trump in white tails was at his self-deprecating best but unfortunately no cameras were present; the U.S. is not the only place being hit with foul weather as England has been hit with massive snow storms leading the many supermarkets being emptied of staples and new provisions unable to be moved; on the Mueller witch-hunt front, his “investigation” has expanded to looking at whether the UAE provided funding to the Trump campaign (still not a thread of evidence of Russian collusion while Russian collusion with the DNC and HRC is in plain sight); Meghan Markle soon to be the wife of Prince Harry will be baptized as an Anglican before the wedding; in Chicago through March 3, 2018 370 people have been shot of whom 70 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).
        As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Mims; factoids of interest for this day in history, not having to listen to any ranting logomania today and a relevant quote by Andre Jute the consequence of frostbite, secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like birthdays, 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.
