February 6, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Ronald Reagan Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For February 6, 2019 President Trump delivered his SOTUS with resister in chief directly on camera behind him who actually applauded and stood up from time to time, especially when
Trump told the Blue women members of Congress not to sit down there’s more and praised that the Congress has the highest number of females in its history; Blue reaction and MSM reaction was predictably negative as
Schumer slammed him for being Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde  (polls taken after the speech how overwhelming approval of Americans who watched it)0ppo; amazingly, most Blues remained seated and withheld applause when Trump was touting record low unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, and Asians (sadly most Blues want Trump to fail with his economic policies to the detriment of this nation); in Virginia rocked by black face and KKK photo of the governor in his yearbook is being further rocked by the allegations made by Vanessa Tyson that
Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004 as she has retained the same firm that represented Ford in the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and to ice the scandal cake the Blue Attorney General who is third in line admitted wearing black face at a party in 1980 (Northam and Fairfax should heed calls to resign but the AG probably should not as the fourth in line is the Virginia Speaker of the House who is Red and it will interesting to if fellow Democrats heed Senator Hirano’s call that women need to be believed); New Jersey a high tax state has a bill before its Blue governor to allow the creation of utilities to tax homeowners and businesses with paved driveways and parking lots which result in runoff during rain and snow storms (Reds are calling this a “rain tax”; in Douglas County, Colorado a middle school teacher is facing dismissal for misidentifying Nick Sandmann and  and tweeting that the student so misidentified was a Hitler Youth (the students were not public figures so the protection of the Sullivan case will not be available to them in the defamation suits that will soon be filed).

2.  Ronald Reagan Day—commemorating since 2011 the birthday on this day in 1911 of former governor of California and President of the United States who must be rolling over in his grave over the gridlock in the Swamp.
3. 2012 Number One Song— the number one song on this day in 2012 on a run of 2 weeks in that position was “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele. Here is a recording of the song:
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day as we move from words beginning with “n” to words beginning with “o” is “ophidiaphobia” which means a fear of snakes a trait which Indiana Jones struggled with in all his movies.
5. Anchor for the Greatest Generation—celebrating the birth on this day in 1940 of noted TV journalist and author of The Greatest Generation, the generation of Americans that fought in World War II, Tom Brokaw who anchored NBC’s The Nightly News for 21 years, retiring in 2004

Commonwealth following the death of her father King George VI.
b.  1950 Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments filed a patent for the first integrated circuit.
c. 1976 the President of Lockheed Carl Kotchian admitted before a Senate subcommittee that Lockheed had paid $3,000,000 in bribes to Japanese President Tanaka which almost brought Lockheed down and resulted in the passage of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act banning bribes to foreign officials.

e. 2018 SpaceX Heavy made its maiden flight.
       Reflections on SpaceX by its founder: “On one of the SpaceX flights, we had a secret payload: a wheel of cheese. We flew to orbit and brought it back, so it was the world's first 'space cheese.' It was, in part, a tribute to Monty Python.” Elon Musk
