September 6, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


            On the crime front Madison police have arrested 26 year old Brandon Thompson of the brutal rape and strangulation of a University of Wisconsin student and on the Ohio State campus, 2 young men jumped out of a car to rob a student outside his dorm at gun point to then speed away without injuring him.
            On the Biden Family crime front, Special Prosecutor Weiss in formed the federal judge who tossed the sweetheart plea agreement that Hunter Biden will be indicted for lying about his addiction problems in order to purchase a firearm before the end of September. Lying on a federal form to purchase a gun is punishable by up to 10 years. 
             On the transgender front, Kayla Lemieux who displayed massive Z Cup sized breasts had arrived to teach at her new school, Nora Frances Henderson Secondary School, having ditched those massive prosthetic monstrosities but having grown a beard so hopefully “she” now “he” has detransitioned.
              On the naming front, India with its over a billion in population is on official publications now using the Sanskrit name of  “Bharat” instead of India which Hindu activists clam was a product of colonization by the British which appears to be soon replaced  by Bharat.
             On the aging front, McConnell was back at the Capitol informing reporters he would remain as minority leader through December 31, 2024 and as senator through December 31, 2006. In January of this year Red Rep. Ralph Norman and Blue Rep Jared Golden co-sponsored an amendment to the Constitution to limit terms to 3 in the house and 2 in the Senate. Since Money is the Mother’s Milk of Politics, Mitch’s raising almost $50 million for Red Senator candidates this year should keep him in his leadership role. Biden’s impaired cognitive state was on display after putting the ribbon holding his Medal of Honor around the neck of Capt. USA Ret. Larry Taylor he turned and headed for the door before the end of applause, the ceremony’s closing prayer and music from the W.H. Band.
             On the energy front as Saudi Arabia and Russia are cutting back on production to move oil prices higher, the Biden administration has been cancelling previously issued oil and gas leases in and off the coast of Alaska. Do not be surprised if prices at the pump continue to rise.
             On the open border and soaring illegals crossing  front, a District Court in Hawaii responding to a DOJ court action seeking to block the floating barrier on the Rio Grande River at Eagle Pass, Texas ruled it must be removed by September 15, which ruling Texas is appealing.
            On the War of the Roses front, the divorce between Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner remains at the top of the nasty charts as Baumgartner was ordered to pay Costner $14,000 and provide documents previously requested by September 22 but the court refused Baumgartner’s request to increase child support and set it at $62,209 per month and kept in place Costner’s sole responsibility for the children's health care, private school tuition, extracurricular activities and the couple's oldest son's car expenses.

              Noted Holidays: National Read a Book Day: Clueless as to who created this day or when only to know it’s easy to celebrate by spending some time today away from the TV to instead read. Unlike some holidays this is one that should be celebrated by some reading each and every day.
              Word of the Day: The word of the day is “atokous” which means lacking any offspring.
              Song of the Day: The number 1 song on this day in 1998 was  “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith on a run of 4 weeks to share number 1 status with 15 other songs achieving number 1 ranking while 10 acts, including Aerosmith, achieved  number one status for the first time.  Here is a music video with lyrics of Aerosmith performing “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”:
              September 6 Birthdays: “The Queen of Disco”—Sylvester James, better known as Sylvester, Born on this day in 1947 in Watts in Los Angeles was a noted openly gay singer who in later years in addition to recording and performing became an anti-HIV/AIDS activist. He contracted AIDS after his male companion contracted the disease and soon died with Sylvester dying from the disease at the age of 41 from AIDS but not before he wrote his will leaving all his future royalties to SFO based HIV/AIDS charities.
              September 6  Historical Events in Rhyme
              1.     On this day in 2022 the Ukraine invading Russian Bear/Was to its surprise in a counter attack pushed out of its lair/When the counteroffensive on October 22, 2022 had wound down/The Ukrainians had recovered some 12,000 square kilometers of previously lost to the Russians ground.
              2.     On this day in 2022 the resignation of Boris Johnson became effective on the day Liz Truss was elected to the Conservative Party lead/She replaced Boris Johnson to be the U.K.’s new head/Per protocol the 2 met with Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral Castle to inform her that a new government did exist/Queen Elizabeth II last official act and 2 days later at 3:10 P.M. her declining health the forces of Old Age she could no longer resist.
              3.     On this day in 2007 Operation Orchard  was by Israeli warplanes executed/To attack Syria’s growing nuclear reactor tree with growing nuclear weapons from ever being fruited/7 planes created in the desert a huge smoking hole/The Begin doctrine of destroying sites used to make nukes had achieved its goal.
              4.      On this day in 1977 the funeral of Princess Diana took place/A shining light of charitable endeavors and dignity and grace/Killed far too soon fleeing from paparazzi as her date lost control entering into a Paris tunnel to crash/not wearing seat belts and died from internal injuries being bashed/A million mourners in London lined the streets/to wave farewell as the procession headed to her burial site at Oval Lake at Althorp to greet/The funeral had all the pomp and circumstance the English do so well beyond compare/With Sir Elton performing “Candle in the Wind/Goodbye English Rose” as her memories wisped slowly into the air.  
              5.      On this day in 1901 President McKinley 6 months into his second term was shot/By Leon Czolgosz, an anarchist who revenge for losing his job in the Panic of 1883 sought/Concealing a revolver in his hand by cloth wrapped like a bandage all around his hand/When McKinley reached out to shake, Czolgosz knocked it away and fired 2 rounds/1 grazed him and the other into his stomach before Czolgosz was slammed to the ground/The wound seemed not lethal and it was thought McKinley would rebound/But the bullet was not found/And soon he was infected with gangrene/ He died on the morning of September 14 at 2:15/Leon Czolgosz was tried 9 days later in a proceeding lasting 8 hours with the jury convicting him after 30 minutes and the judge sentencing him to death/Czolgosz refused to appeal and on October 29, 1901 after 3 1800 volt jolts in the electric chair, at &:14 he took his last breath.
              Quote on the Princess Diana’s Funeral by Prince Harry: “Actually there was some guilt that I felt, and I think William felt as well, by walking around the outside of Kensington Palace. There were 50,000 bouquets of flowers to our mother and there we were shaking people's hands, smiling. I've looked back over it all, and the wet hands that we were shaking but it was all the tears that they were wiping away. Everyone thought and felt like they knew our mom And the two closest people to her, the two most loved by her were unable to show any emotion at that moment.
