June 1, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


The Fiscal Responsibility Act passed in the House went to the Senate who passed it 63-36 with 31 Reds, 4 Blues and Bernie Sanders voting against it and 17 Reds and  46 Blues voting in favor of it to send it to President Biden for his signature in what was truly a bipartisan vote to avoid the catastrophe of this nation defaulting on its obligations. Black Chicago residents are out raged over the Chicago City Council voting to spend $51 million to house illegal aliens when shelters for poverty suffering residents are unable to access shelters. A recording has been revealed of Trump admitted he had classified documents. Matthew Nilo, a New Jersey attorney who had proposed to his fiancée several weeks ago, has been arrested for several rapes in the Boston area in 2007 and 2008 with the use of genealogical DNA. In a move that Taco Bell has just done by listening to its consumers which Bud Light obviously has not, after receiving petitions to bring back its spicy Volcano Burrito discontinued in 2013, will soon be reintroducing it. On the sports front the Stanford women who lost 2-0 to the Number one Oklahoma’s softball team that is trying for a 3 peat will be playing 1 loss Alabama  on June 2, 2023 to see who will be eliminated.

           Noted Holidays: National Heimlich Maneuver Day: Celebrating the invention by Doctor Henry Heimlich who in 1974 created the procedure that by locking hands under the sternum and pulling upwards the air pressure will expel anything swallowed into the trachea that is preventing someone from breathing. The American Red Cross estimates some 3,000 people are saved yearly by the maneuver and if patrons or servers in a restaurant or family members at a home dinner waited for the paramedics to arrive, good chance the victim might die or if resuscitated suffer brain damage. 
            Word of the Day: the word of the day is “antepone”  which means prefer.                   
        Song of the Day:  The number 1 song on this day in 1976 was “Love Hangover” by Diana Ross on a run of 2 weeks to share with 25 other songs achieving number 1 ranking, while 15 acts achieved number one hit status for the first time. Here is a recording of Diana Ross performing “Love Hangover”:                     June 1 “Hunger For Stardom”: Willow Shields, no relation to Brooke, was born on this day in 2000 in Albuquerque and is an up and coming actress best noted for her role as Primrose Everdeen in the highly successful 4 Hunger Games movies which grossed over $2 billion and was a contestant of “Dancing with the Stars” before being eliminated in the 8th round. The acting genes run deep in the Shields family as her twin sister and older brother are both actors.

             1.     On this day in 2011 the Space Shuttle Endeavor the last Space Shuttle built ended its 25th and final flight landing from the sky/ Far too soon the Space Shuttle Atlantis would be launched and when it landed, Space Shuttles would no longer fly.
              2.     On this day in 2009, General Motors in the Great Recession with sales in a downward skid/ Filed for Chapter 11 B/K fourth largest to the likelihood of liquidation rid.

                Opposing Views of CNN:
               Robert Murdoch:
CNN is pretty consistently on the left, if you look at their choice of stories, what they play up. It's not what they say. It's what they highlight. I am amazed that CNN cannot get its act together.”
                Jeff Zucker: “
In an increasingly polarized world, it's hard to know whom to trust. CNN will be the only news channel that doesn't take a side.”
