Awww, the poor celebrity doesn't like being told what an idiot he is

Here's the thing, James:  
You heard something, and without taking any time to find out facts, you put out a twat threatening a cop who had just prevented a stabbing.  Nothing mattered to you except Evil White Cop and Black Victim.

When you were called on your idiocy you took it down and are now whining 
Hours later, James reckoned that he was a victim of people misinterpreting his message.

“I took the tweet down because its [sic] being used to create more hate,” he tweeted.

“This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism,” he said, saying he was “so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police.”

You sorry little bitch.  You don't have the balls to say "I screwed up", so you try to claim victimhood.

Howzabout next time something happens you have an irresistible urge to comment on, you take a minute to find out some facts instead of playing "I am Celebrity, listen to Me!" and making things worse? 

Also, you chickenshit, you're awfully selective in what you get outraged about.

For your entertainment and disgust, I bring you this idiocy:

A: If she means this, she's too damn stupid to be out in public without a keeper.
B: If she doesn't, she's  trying to turn a legitimate use of lethal force into something else to riot about, and she's disgusting.

In case you haven't hear about this, story here.  Short version: emergency call, cop rolls up and one female is trying very hard to carve open another.  Cop shoots, puts the attacker down.

Which means, in current idiocy, that the usual suspects- including the fucking ACLU- have labeled the cop a murderer who shot a poor 16-year-old girl.  Which was added to by a brainless celebrity named Lebron James:
Who, when someone pointed out just how Effing Stupid this was, deleted it.  

When the cops had a press conference, including the video, the usual idiot journalists vomited stupidity all over, including
"What de-escalation techniques did he try before shooting" and
"Why didn't he try to shoot her in the arm?"
What moron editor considered these clowns capable of being out interviewing people?

The Very Real Danger of Politically Sanctioned Violence

Multiple good points.  I'm going to quote one, because remember the Portland cops doing nothing while Antifa attacked people, smashed up their vehicles and threatened them, but sprang into action the moment one of the attacked defended himself? 

4. The police are not coming! To put this bluntly, American law enforcement, especially in urban areas, has been totally neutered. Police departments have been “defunded,” lost a huge percentage of their officers, lost qualified immunity and know that neither their department or the politicians in the area they serve will back them up. They know that if they help you, they will suffer your fate — or worse. The videos don’t lie. You cannot watch the videos of the on-going riots without understanding that you are on your own. This is harsh, but it is no less true. Should you call 911? Absolutely, because it puts you in the best light if the event should end up in court. Just don’t expect the cavalry to come riding over the hill.  

Further: remember, if things to completely to hell, no matter how justified your use of force is the left- which includes most of our media- will paint you as a demon responsible for all ills.  You may even have that demented shithead Maxine Waters demanding the jury convict you 'or else'.  Barring a miracle, this shit is going to get worse before(if) it gets better.

A note from the Civilian Marksmanship Program


Dear CMP Family,

The CMP advises to not use .30/06 ammunition in M1 Garands, 1903s, and 1903A3s that is loaded beyond 50,000 CUP and has a bullet weight more than 172-174gr. These rifles are at least 70 years old and were not designed for max loads and super heavy bullets. Always wear hearing and eye protection when firing an M1 Garand, 1903 and/or 1903A3 rifle.

This warning is an update/addition to the Ammunition section in the Read This First manual enclosed with each rifle shipment (M1 Garand manual-page 6 and M1903 manual-page 10).

The family situation is doing fairly well,

 the back is not.  Bunch of stuff I flat had to get done today, got most of it until I was informed "Get off your damned feet or else."

Tomorrow is a visit to the new doc, which I'm told should help.  I damn well hope so.

"You can't criticize a communist dictatorship here!

It will  hurt someone's feelings!  And this is a university, you can't do that!"

Dry finally, but still chilly

Which is nice; there are limits to how much constant damp and chilly I can handle.

And now, on to the main feature

Friday, April 16, 2021

It's been wet all day, now it's downright chilly;

must be all that globular warming/coolering/climate changery we're told about.  In any case(now that you've stopped laughing), the data is in

One of the two reasons I still use Fecesbook is to post stuff that'll annoy the hell out of the Right People;

This is one of them.
Media finally notices that the RCP 8.5 climate model is over-hyped science fiction

Joe Biden has put a presidential imprimatur on climate change being an existential threat, and he doesn’t mean in the Jean-Paul Sartre sense of man’s search for meaning in an uncomforting universe.

He means the end of humanity, a claim nowhere found in climate science.

This is odd because the real news today is elsewhere. Its movement may be ocean-liner-like, the news may be five years old before the New York Times notices it, but the climate community has been backing away from a worst-case scenario peddled to the public for years as “business as usual.”

A drumroll moment was Zeke Hausfather and Glen Peter’s 2020 article in the journal Nature partly headlined: “Stop using the worst-case scenario for climate warming as the most likely outcome.”

This followed the 2017 paper by Justin Ritchie and Hadi Dowlatabadi asking why climate scenarios posit implausible increases in coal burning a century from now. And I could go on. Roger Pielke Jr. and colleagues show how the RCP 8.5 scenario was born to give modelers a high-emissions scenario to play with, and how it came to be embraced despite being at odds with every real-world indicator concerning the expected course of future emissions.

About those details mentioned a few days ago,

goes like this:
Dad had a serious health problem, followed by a couple of other things.  He's recovering well now, but I've had to make a few trips to help Mom out with stuff.  And mow.  Have to do it some more for a while, as it'll be a bit before he can take those over again.

And I've got a back problem which has made all this less than fun.  And that's not going to get much better for a while.  Hopefully the treatment I'll be starting will help.  We'll see.

So there's been little bloggage, and not much of anything else either; if I'd had a social life it would've suffered badly as well.

That's the background.  And now I will clear a few things:
