Man yelling 'anti-Trump' rhetoric opens fire at President's Miami-area golf resort

The man who opened fire at the Trump National Doral Golf Club early Friday had been yelling "anti-Trump ... rhetoric" there, Miami-Dade police Director Juan Perez said.

The suspect is a 42-year-old resident of Doral, Florida, and is in stable condition after police shot him in an exchange of gunfire, Perez said. A Doral police officer suffered broken bones but was not shot, Perez said.

The gunman took a flag from a pole in the rear of the complex, brought it into the hotel lobby, draped it over a counter, yelled rhetoric against President Donald Trump and fired a gun into the air -- at the roof and chandeliers, Perez said.

He then "waited for officers to engage him," Perez said.

Perez said the man's immediate motive seemed to be to lure police into a gunfight.

"He did succeed (in luring police), and he did lose," Perez said.

Why is the forever striked through?

We used to have scratch hearts for Valentines stamps, a stamp with a silver heart-shaped layer on it, and if you scratched to remove it, it revealed a secret text. The texts were put on the side of the stamp sheet in small print.
Dad sent a letter to inland revenue. Using one of the stamps without being informed of this feature.

After we told him, he grabbed the sheet to find out what heart he sent.

It was the one that said "write me".

I believe the actual stamp does not have the strike. The U.S. Postal Service has posted images of other Forever stamps online, and many of them contain a similar strike. Perhaps it makes it more difficult to counterfeit the stamp by using a digital image.

Brazil under lockout
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockout_(industry)

The city, and virtually every city in Brazil, is without or runnig out of fuel and food supplies are shortening quickly. The results of having almost 70% of the goods in the country transported by trucks...

on the surface news:

Brazil Reaches a Pact in Truck Strike, but Big Union Rejects It
SÃO PAULO—Brazil’s government said Thursday evening it had reached an agreement with several truckers unions to suspend a four-day strike that has disrupted the economy and left many businesses without vital supplies, but one of the country’s biggest drivers groups said it would continue the work
