Today is Monday, September 2 and here are the stories I am following on this Labor Day.
1. Dorian’s Power
In a slow, relentless advance, a catastrophic Hurricane Dorian kept pounding at the northern Bahamas early Monday, as one of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded left wrecked homes, shredded roofs, tumbled cars and toppled power poles in its wake.
The storm’s top sustained winds decreased slightly to 165 mph (265 kph) as its westward movement slowed, crawling along Grand Bahama island Monday morning at 1 mph (1.6 kph) in what forecasters said would be a daylong assault. Earlier, Dorian churned over Abaco island with battering winds and surf during Sunday.
DML: There isn’t much information from the Bahamas, although officials expect many residents to be left homeless. I have a friend who owns a home in Freeport, and when calling his cell phone there is nothing but a message stating the network is unavailable.
2. Florida v. Dorian
For Florida, just a handful of miles may make a huge difference in Hurricane Dorian’s slow dance with the coast. The National Hurricane Center forecasts Dorian to be 40 to 50 miles off the Florida coast on Tuesday and Wednesday, with hurricane-force wind speeds extending about 35 miles to the west.
DML: My son’s are one mile from Trump’s Mar-a-largo. That’s where the path takes Dorian if it does not turn towards the Carolinas. Everyone in the general area is walking on egg shells.
3. Yemen Attack
Yemen was reeling Monday from the deadliest attack so far this year after multiple airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition hit a detention center run by the country’s rebels the previous day, killing over 100 people and wounding dozens. By midday, rescue and search teams retrieved 86 bodies but continued to search for more in the rubble of a building complex in southwestern Dhamar province that the Iran-backed rebel Houthis were using as a detention center, Yemen’s Red Crescent said. There were around 170 detainees at the facility when the airstrikes hit on Sunday. The International Committee for the Red Cross said 40 wounded were being treated for injuries while the rest were presumed dead.
DML: This will only add up to be another reason for the cheap labor lovers in the US to welcome more refugees from Yemen.
4. Texas shooter was fired
Texas authorities on Sunday said the gunman who opened fire the day before—killing seven and injuring at least 22—had been fired from his trucking job just hours before the shooting rampage. The gunman was killed by law enforcement in a movie theater parking lot in the town of Odessa. It is believed he was acting alone and no motive was determined.
DML: One of the injured was a 17-month old child. Sick to my stomach thinking about it. One of the dead is a 15 year old.
5.AOC rips straight men.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed a “Straight Pride” parade in Boston on Saturday and what she said appeared to be a lack of women, calling it an “I-Struggle-With-Masculinity” parade. “For men who are allegedly so ‘proud’ of being straight, they seem to show real incompetence at attracting women to their event,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote along with a retweet of footage from the march. “Seems more like a ‘I-Struggle-With-Masculinity’ parade to me.’”
DML: AOC is wound way too tight. My sense is AOC would be less stressed and more relaxed if she was to take DML PURE CBD. Our super great product can take away pain and improve sleep, but it can also helps relax the anxious personality that hovers within AOC’s brain. As for making someone like AOC go from unintelligent to smart, DML PURE CBD cannot help a socialist brain become a normal brain. There is nothing on the market that can help her in that category. But I do suggest she try DML PURE CBD as it will help her notch it down some, the great products are available at DMLcbd.com
