Mall Chaos

Problem

NYPD evacuates a New York City Mall after shots were fired inside. As the danger increases and folks stay home while shopping online, countless of malls across the US are closing down, there’s a Web site devoted to “dead malls” that are out of commission.

Global Warming Woes

Problem

Although some so-called world leaders claim it is a hoax, global warming continues to worry climate experts.

Record-breaking and dangerously hot weather continues to affect part of our planet as it is forecast for much of California and the Southwest over this weekend, as temperatures soar well above 100 degrees in many spots.

In Los Angeles, a temperature record that's stood since 1886 95 degrees may be broken on Saturday. Excessive heat advisories and warnings have been posted for much of western Arizona, southern Nevada, and The Southland of California, with 120 degrees.

Green Card Eligible?

Issue

A young American boy has found himself caught in the middle of an immigration quagmire after a judge ruled the immigrant child, who was abandoned by his father ought to get a green card under a special status created by Congress in 1990.

However, US Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement aka ICE officials, under the Trump administration, says no way, Jose.

Nobody Really Knows?

Idea

@Potus believes Russia meddled in US election but also other countries 'nobody really knows for sure'

The question on the eve of meeting a man he claims he knows, but may not really know him is... Does he know what he is saying?

Trump, on eve of Putin meeting, says 'nobody really knows' about Russian hacking https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/07/06/trump-eve-putin-...

The Mourning After

Problem

Hours after July Fourth celebrations had ended in NYC, an officer was executed while sitting inside her police cruiser.

The Bronx is apparently going back to those bad days of violence. The northernmost of NYC's five boroughs has had it's up and downs, but most recently has seen a spike in murder by shootings.

A member of the NYPD was shot to death early Wednesday morning after being ambushed in a marked patrol car by a man with a revolver who was later killed by police officers.

Declaration of Independence

Attraction
Images: 

In the beginning.... Congress, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

The Rocket’s Red Glare

A staredown and scary situation in a hostile or intimidating way, in which someone feels forced to look away increased today. The conflict between North and South Korea has been locked in a state of tension since The Korean War ended with a truce in 1953. The two nations have remained deeply hostile, exchanging occasional violence and showing plenty of hatred over the years across the Demilitarized Zone, which separates the two countries.

Sun of a Beach

Problem

Chris is feeling the heat, strategically and figuratively ways you can imagine. The political fat cat is wearing a hat.

We're # 1

Announcement

This independence day, as we celebrate the birth of democracy, it's worth remembering that America is truly an exceptional nation in many ways good, and some not so much. Above are charts of ways that the USA is #1.

Whether you measure it using exchange rates or get down with PPP, the U.S. is still the world's largest economy.

We pay the most for healthcare. Yes, it is insanely expensive. But it's always good to have a reminder of just how expensive it is compared to other developed nations.

POTUS Profanities

Issue

Who's the most foul-mouthed President of The USA? Many would quickly say 45 right away.

However, that depends on their styles, priorities, intelligence, and criteria. So we surfed the internet for quotes from US Presidents' colorful language.

President Obama's comment about Mitt Romney being a "bulls*****r" is one the less-offensive of the presidential profanities. Reagan, Carter, Ford, Clinton, Nixon, Johnson and even Harry S. Truman, were all known to let a profanity slip every now and then, but POTUS 45 toxic Tweets, comments, and actions could trump them all.
