      NEWS FLASH Hurricane hits Bahamas, this has been happening every year since forever. Direct hits create damage&death
      NOTHING NEW HERE. Living on a coral [email protected] sea level maybe 5 to 10' if you are lucky at low tide in the middle of the ocean in hurricane ally in a substandard home...
      What could possibly go wrong? And the news makes it seem that it is the USA's fault.

      MSM wants us to be UNCLE SAP. And their outrage is such BS. We are helping but many more countrys need to pitch in.
      AND what ever happened to the BILLIONS sent to Haiti after the earthquake, inquiring minds want to know?

          USA is the greatest country ever...having more rights than others, but still can't escape from death or disaster...but Japan is still there waiving their hands with smiles.

                      Looting hurricane victims in Bahamas and America. As trump send Army food supplies medicine everything Bahamas needs. They call him a racist. Then ASK AMERICA For MONEY 💴 at the same time they are shooting people. Then they get on a bunch of boats now heading here. To America. And they got millions of millions of money 💰. And America had a hurricane , and not one nation in this world 🌎 gave us nothing. MY QUESTION IS WHY. . MILLIONS OF MILLIONS AFE HOMELESS IN America. Millions have no jobs. Nothing. What about America. 😡. What about America don’t the people in America matter to anyone on this earth 🌍. And you call yourself Christian. 😱. Oh then the Government , is pocket that money 💰 your sending to the hurricane victims in Bahamas. So does Red Cross. And trump sending more supplies. Wow 😮 I say this world 🌎 sucks

                                      +SAINT 65 It's the computer models for the hurricane's track that they used to create that graph. It was on a separate sheet of paper. That's why somebody drew the little sharpie arc on the graph. If you bothered to pay attention, you would have noticed that they said that they expect the number to be dramatically higher. There are many interviews where survivors say that there are bodies everywhere and they are stinking up the whole island. There is also video of bodies laying in rubble. You don't have a cat 5 hurricane stop on top of you for 36 hours without killing large numbers of people. Also don't forget that they had a twenty foot high storm surge that killed lots of people and drug them out to sea.

                                      The most 'Powerful Person in the World' would have used those projections & not a "sharpie" altered map.
                                      What proof do you have, today, "thousands" of people were killed?

                                      +SAINT 65 There had been some of the computer models that had the track of the hurricane going into Alabama. This is just more fake news. I also find it disgusting that the official body count of the hurricane is only 43. It's actually in the thousands. They are just waiting for the news cycle to move on to the next story.

                                              But according to some people there's no such thing as global warming. 🤦‍♂️ What's worse that this type of hurricanes will be stronger and deadlier next year and the year after etc because people don't believe in global warming.

They got caught conspiring with each other to alter the data. They should have been fired but instead they were allowed to keep on altering the data. They need to fired and arrested. Hurricanes have been happening for basically forever. They are nothing new.

                                                  *With it being days after hurricane Dorian left the Bahamas, It is now going from a search and rescue mission to a recovery mission. The average persons life span without water or food around a salt water environment is 6 days. 3 of those days, no rescue operations could happen with the hurricane staying stationary. This left 3 to 4 days for search and rescue. We are passed that so it's highly unlikely that anybody still missing would be alive at the moment. But there is still hope for some that were seperated but found cover. I take it that the search and rescue operations will be stopped here soon and the efforts will be just in recovery mode . God bless all these people and lives lost* .

God Bless the people in the Bahamas hopefully friends and family can help them I'm sure countries are sending money and supplies. Hopefully the Red Cross won't steal it all like Hillary and the clintons did to Haiti.

Now its over , they want to tell us all about it ? How did a great Country like the US get stuck with a media thats so one-sided , that claims they're not . Do they think we're stupid ?
