September 24, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Shwenkfelder Thanksgiving

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For September 24, 2019 the frenzy over the freeze on aid to Ukraine in July which the Trump Administration was put in place due to corruption concerns and whether other countries were paying their agreed to contributions continues unabated with Blues and the MSM claiming it was due to a quid pro quo demand that Ukraine investigate Hunter Biden’s role in oil and gas ventures in the Ukraine and chanting the impeachment chant (the whistle blower that started this mess evidently has no direct link to the supposed quid pro quo call, Ukraine is claiming no pressure by Trump and the transcript of the call or calls which hopefully could put an end to this mess have not been released hopefully because they will vindicate Trump and he wants Blues and Biden to dig a deeper hole for themselves before the truth crushes them); not releasing the transcripts merely adds fuel to an apparently growing impeachment fire which conveniently ignores the transgressions of Biden while VP in getting a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter fired in order to get $1 billion in U.S. aid which he bragged about; Sherika Hawkins, a Michigan election official recently praised by Blues, has been arrested on 6 felony counts for allegedly marking 200 absentee ballots as invalid (safe bet would be the ballots were voting for Reds); they may be NIMBYs but residents of San Francisco’s Mission Dolores District along Clinton Park have place large boulders on the sidewalks to prevent the homeless from camping there and shooting up drugs (another Blue run city awash in used needles and feces with a massive homeless problem); another Losartin blood pressure recall over concern the medication contains a cancer causing ingredient (sad news as it is a Hobson’s Choice of lowering blood pressure to prevent strokes and heart attacks and run a cancer risk or stop taking it and increase the stroke and heart attack risk); as Warren and Sanders predictably are seen on picket lines of GM Strike that is growing in intensity as neither side appears ready to cave, GM has obtained an injunction barring picketers for blocking entrance and exit to one of its plants in Tennessee (tragedy here is that GM workers are paid well in excess of what most manufacturing workers receive and the strike will erode GM’s market share and accelerate the movement of plants to right to work states); Sanders wants to become the Panderer in Chief for Socialism as he outlines his wealth tax on billionaires and millionaires (this idiot ignores the fact that many if not most of these billionaires and millionaires became so as a result of starting businesses not from inherited wealth and taxes on creativity and risk would be a disaster to our economy if those two drivers were curtailed); while AOC and Pressley were raising bail money to free Antifa thugs who battled police in Boston, the International Union of Police Associations citing President Trump’s love and support of men and women in blue and endorsed his reelection (stark contrast to the Blues who are falling over themselves to attack police trying to keep the nation safe); Trump at the UN blasted open border advocates and castigated Iran for its “blood lust”; in Chicago through September 23, 2019, 2072 have been shot of whom 354 have died (but surprise, surprise none on the 23rd; and in Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, 249 have been murdered in Baltimore (when will Chicago and Baltimore get serious about this carnage or is this the case of true racism as a Blue run city turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the slaughter of people of color by people of color and when will the left focus on the problem of color on color shootings in Blue run cities which have been more deadly and more numerous than random mass shootings?

1. National Gall Bladder Good Health Daynot sure when this was created or who created it but suspect since apples are supposed to promote a healthy gall bladder, a trade association of apple growers.         
2. Shwenkfelder Thanksgiving—celebrating the first Thanksgiving by 170 members of the Shwenkfelder Sect of Christians that arrived in America on September 22, 1734 to escape religious persecution and celebrated their religious freedom by a Thanksgiving meal consisting of water, bread, butter and apple butter which is still celebrated today in communities with numbers of the Shwenkfelder sect.
3. 1942 Number One Song— the number one song in 1942 on this day on a run of 7 weeks in the position was  “(I’ve Got a Gal in) Kalamazoo” by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra with vocals by Tex Beneke, Marion Hutton and the Modernaires. Here is a recording of the song: https://my.mail.ru/mail/clownshow/video/_vfavorites/22.html?time=256&from=videoplayer
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “pornogenerian” which means a dirty old man which described Jeremy Epstein to a perfect tee.
5. Walk, Pin, and Brand--celebrating the birth on this day in 1976 of Stephanie McMahon who started out as a model, went on to become a professional women’s wrestler and now is the Chief Brand Officer for WWE which is not a bad career path.
 On this day in: 
     a. 1890 the Church of Jesus Christ of the Later-day Saints officially renounced polygamy.
     b. 1948 the Honda Motor Company was formed.
c. 1957 President Eisenhower sent elements of the 101st Airborne Division to Little Rock, Arkansas to enforced court orders mandating desegregation of Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock by nine very brave African-American students.
d. 1960 the USS Enterprise, the world’s first nuclear powered aircraft carrier, was launched and remained in service until decommissioned in 2017.
e. 2014 the Mars Orbiter Mission launched by India made India the first Asian nation to put a satellite into orbit around Mars and the first nation to successfully accomplish the feat on its first attempt.
Reflections on success by the founder of Honda Motor Company which has been and is a tremendous success: Success can be achieved only through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents 1 percent of your work which results only from the 99 percent that is called failure.
Many people dream of success. To me success can be achieved only through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents 1 percent of your work which results only from the 99 percent that is called failure.” Soichiro Honda How true his observations are and why successful people will try, try and try again until they succeed in achieving their goals.
