October 7, 2023 Ridley's Believe It Or Not


             On the Iran proxy Hamas front, Biden’s ill-advised 6 billion dollars in frozen Iranian assets to 5 American hostages release is coming home to roost as Hamas launched at least 2100 rockets into Israel which overwhelmed Israel’s Iron Dome, killing 300 and wounding 1500 and infiltrated large numbers of Hamas terrorists into Southern Israel, prompting Israel to call up four reserve division and beginning launched air strikes on suspected rocket launch sites and declaring Israel is at war.  
             On the Hamas unprovoked attacks, 2 of the squad called for a “ceasefire” and condemned the rocket attacks oblivious to the fact that they will continue until Hamas is destroyed or rockets in overwhelming numbers the terrorists lack. Details in the fog of war are with reality often at odds, but some reports out of Southern Israel are that civilians by them are targeted to be killed. Velshi of the true to form Mostly Slanted News Biased Cack Network as Hamas rockets were killing Israeli citizens by the score was quick to put on a Palestinian Activist to rant on the oppression of the Israelis of Palestinians in Gaza to justify the killing rocket attacks.
            Across the globe national leaders are condemning in no uncertain words the Hamas rocket attacks save of course Iran which any criticism of Hamas rejects which should come as no surprise because their regime is writing all the Hamas support checks. And to nor surprise Biden was sacked out when the first rockets started to land late Friday night and as also to be expected attacked for being asleep at the wheel.
             On the impact of the wave of illegals crossing our border front, in pursuing illegals whom the Blues believe will vote Blue  in the future to give them a lock on the White House and many state governments for many years, they have upset the plantation voters applecart as blacks more and more feel abandoned and replaced by illegals. What the Blues in their proclivity to take both blacks and Hispanics for granted is that more and more Hispanics are voting Red and with blacks will the Blues grip on their votes shed.
             On the strike front the 3 day Kaiser Permanente strike ended this Saturday with no agreement on wages and staffing reached so do not be surprised if it is not reactivated again for more than 3 days.               October 7,  2023 Michael P. Ridley aka The Alaskanpoet 
             Noted Holidays: Team Margot Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Awareness Day founded on this day in 2014 by Team Margot in honor of Margot Martini who died from a rare form of blood leukemia at 2 years 2 years old and first celebrated on this day in 2015 to promote awareness of the need for  stem cell and bone marrow transplants for those suffering from leukemia.
              Word of the Day: The word of the day as we end the word of the day starting with “a” to move to words starting with “b” “ballistophobia” which means a fear of missiles which Ukrainians have felt since the Russian invasion of their country and which the Israelis must be feeling today as over 2000 rockets were launched by Hamas against the Jewish state today.
              Song of the Day: The number 1 song on this day in 1969 was “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies on a run of 4 weeks to share number 1 status with 16 other songs achieving number 1 ranking while 8 acts, including The Archies, achieved number one status for the first time.  Here is a recording of The Archies performing  “Sugar, Sugar”:
              October 7 Birthdays: “A KGB Lt. Colonel Is Like a Leopard That Will Never Change Spots”—Valadimir Putin 4 term President and former KGB officer,  born in Leningrad, Soviet Union in 1952 and is now the world’s bete noire for his invasion of Ukraine which has resulted in thousands of civilian deaths and the war crimes of removing Ukraine citizens including children into Russia. Despite massive sanctions which China refuses to follow and is importing vast quantities of Russian oil, he is still in power despite the increasing number of coffins bearing Russian troops killed in his ill-fated invasion of Ukraine.
             October 7 Historical Events in Rhyme
             1.      On this day in 2008 an 80 ton Asteroid TC3 made history/As the first asteroid predicted 19 hours before its impact we would see/Earth dodged the bullet as the asteroid did not hit in one piece/But exploded into small meteorite showers as the danger to Earth ceased.
              2.      On this day in 2001 our longest war in Afghanistan had just begun/ Osama bin Laden the architect of 9/911 was there and our request to the Taliban to surrender him they would shun/ We helped the Northern Alliance overthrow the Taliban but our target escaped the Bora Bora battle/Into the mountains into Pakistan he skedaddled; But even after we learned he was near a military academy in Pakistan/And quickly killed him after a Navy Seal force would land/We fought a losing battle on nation building and against the Taliban/Until on August 31 with tails between our legs fled with thousands left behind from Afghanistan.
              3.      On this day in 1996 The Fox News Channel started broadcasting on the air/A different voice on news the MSM did not want to broadcast or to viewers share/Quickly became the number one news channel in prime time/ Often exposing Blue failures on crime, inflation, immigration and Blue policies for a good portion of the news time.
              4.      On this day in 1958 the U.S. behind in the Soviets in the space race/Created and named their proposed manned space program to overcome the Soviet pace/7 astronauts were name and became heroes overnight at the Mercury 7/ Who we hoped would be the first to orbit the heavens/Yuri Gagarin proved that would be the case/To become the first human to orbit and return from space/Once John Glen had matched Gagarin feats in the space race/The Soviet and American programs were neck and neck/But the American rockets and capsules were more advanced and would the winners to space travel ones to select.
              5.      On this day in 1913 to improve productivity and lower production costs Ford Motor Company introduced the moving production line/Probably one of the more influential production improvements of all times/Reduced times to produce and Model-T and drove costs down/ Pretty soon this inexpensive car was being seen driving in all our nation’s towns.
            Quote on the production line pioneered by Henry Ford by Jeffrey Eugenides, noted American author: “ Historical fact: People stopped being people in 1913. That was the year Henry Ford put his cars on rollers and made his workers adopt the speed of the assembly line. At first, workers rebelled. They quit in droves, unable to accustom their bodies to the new pace of the age. Since then, however, the adaptation has been passed down: we've all inherited it to some degree, so that we plug right into joy-sticks and remotes, to repetitive motions of a hundred kinds.”
