Fiery fourth news of the world

Some fourth of July happenings, abbreviated for space and time.. and because you don't have time to read it all--not the guts to view the worst of the worst on a day that should celebrate the best of the best in the United States (where the majority of my hits come from and where I live) .. But besides that, here's a few headlines taking shape and making waves:

Hurricane Arthur made landfall as a strong storm in North Carolina in the early hours of Fourth of July.. Heavy rain, high winds, and rip currents will grace the entire day for those affected by the storm along the East Coast.. At that point, Nova Scotia may be the next in line for strong winds and flooding.. according to reports live from the scene, the state dodged most of Arthur's bullet because the hurricane cracked limbs and rattled homes, but then left the scene..

Let's contemplate the serious nature of this news for a moment: Drug resistant TB, dengue fever, and Ebola, are now all in the United States. Various places.. various diseases--and the immigration nightmare currently taking place in the deep south can only make negative thoughts prevail that only unmitigated diseases will be trouncing through your back yard one day soon.. Also enter this onto your picture: The United Nations is warning that Ebola could become a worldwide pandemic. We already know it's out of control in Africa.. but could it get the rest..? When you see other stories like this you realize it could: There is already a fear of Western medicine in parts of Africa, the disease is spinning completely out of control, borders have been eliminated, and the race is now on to find 1,500 people or so how have the disease and are gone..

As horrified classmates look on, a student's mother stabs the teacher to death in front of the class.. This occurred in France. It is a big deal in that nation, with violence like this in schools rarely making news there..



People seem to worship the humor, or supposed humor, that Melissa McCarthy's movies have.. Until Rex Reed at the New York OBSERVER wrote this blistering piece on how her new film was as funny as a liver transplant.. Really, it is a review that sticks a knife deeply into the McCarthy style of movie acting..

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. or the pit: A college is giving girls extra credit to stop shaving their armpits..


Joan Rivers rips into the First Family.. she called Obama gay and said Michelle is a Tranny.. And funny enough, the Michelle Obama transsexual rumors have been around online in conspiracy forums for some time, with people analyzing her arm muscle mass and her facial structure.. Concerning Obama, early on the GLOBE and other supermarket tabloids that most people don't admit to reading while they are waiting in grocery store lines reported that President Obama, then not a president, was busy making love to men in the backseats of limos .. And now Joan Rivers finally picked up on all this and created a controversy by saying it.

This is very interesting: Criminal charges have been filed against the producers of the film MIDNIGHT RIDER.. that film was shut down after the crew was told to walk a train track. Trains were 'done' for that day. Then a crew member was killed on the tracks as a train actually showed up .. The LA TIMES reports on the criminal charges and asks if this will make the film industry take the safety of cast and crew members more seriously. My short answer: IT WON'T..




Box office update: TRANSFORMERS dominating July 4th box office.. TAMMY second.. DELIVER US FROM EVIL 3rd..

An FYI on DELIVER US FROM EVIL.. I have been notating some people who say the movie is the best horror in years. But judging from the scorecard at Rotten Tomatoes, that could not be further from the truth. A dismal 33% current approve of the film.. I didn't see it yet. But I intend on it.

FIRE AND FURY

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…
