ABCs of Climate Change

How can scientists and politicians be so egotistical and so wrong.....?

First...If the climate hadn't changed you wouldn't be here. The earth started as a ball of dust that grew, compacted, increased in gravity and was struck billions of times during the early universe.

Second...Once things stabilized a bit and the earth cooled from violent volcanic activity and water pooled the atmosphere was absolutely unbreathable to anything on earth now. Water existed and soon life in it's earliest form occurred and evolved. No human could have existed then either. Hell, we've only been around about 200,000 years because the earth climate CHANGED..

Third... Plate tectonics, vulcanism, global cooling, global warming, solar cooling (yes the sun changes) and eruptions affect the climate. We have never had any control over that. In the life of the earth we are about a 20 minute blip out of eons the planet has been around. The belief that we can "save or kill" the earth is absurd. It's like believing a paramecium can build and pilot a star ship.

In all seriousness, climate will change no matter what. (Sorry Bill Nye and get some help for that Turret's issue) Seas will rise and fall, land masses will move and we will have global warming and global cooling..It's a cycle... New species will be found, some will become extinct and some will adapt. ( Look up the "Pizzly" bear).

The people that peddle this tripe are in a power grab fueled by bad science, social engineering and taking advantage of peoples good nature and caring. Use your heads, not your feelings.

This bird was in my feeder the other day. In 2 million years his descendants will evolve and may not have wings. They may swim or dig in a much warmer or cooler world with different continents due to plate tectonics.. who knows.?

Ellicottville, NY - Nice place to visit for sure

Took a 340 mile ride to do some law enforcement training out in Cattaraugus county which is just north of Salamanca on 86/17 in western NY.  We stayed in Ellicottville  at the Wingate Hotel and worked in Little Valley.
It was an amazing quiet 4 days and was a welcome slow down over the Capital district traffic mayhem and bustle. More than enough to do with all the shops and boating to zip lining at the nearby ski resorts sporting summer activities.
If you like small towns, nice people and good food get in the car and get moving. This weekend July 29 and 30 is the Jazz and Blues Fest. Catch some music and then head over to the Gin Mill on Washington Street for some awesome bar food and suds.

Today's Police Officer

NYPD Police Officer Miosotis Familia was shot in the back of the head while sitting in a police car. She spent 12 years on the force doing what she loved best while raising 3 children. She was shot for being a cop. 67 law enforcement officers have been killed so far this year. 50,000 more will be assaulted this year. From California to New York over 200,000 men and women wear a shield and the prerequisites to do this have changed immensely.

What is required in most states to become a cop:
  • A desire to want to help your community. 
  • NO  criminal history and good driving record.
  • A high school diploma and a college degree.
  • Pass a civil service exam ( and score high enough to be reachable).
  • Pass the physical agility test.
  • Pass the medical physical and drug test.
  • Take an oath of office.
  • 6-8 months of basic police training.
  • 1 year of probation and mentoring.
  • Wear a camera that only proves you were telling the truth.
The problems:
  • There are some bad apples in every profession and are dealt within policy and law.
  • Once cleared by internal affairs no one should indicted and tried to appease the "morally outraged".
  • People should know the facts before trial by social networking.
  • Criminals looking to assault a cop because the "urban" culture embraces violence.
  • Community activists without a clue. Also known as "politicians".
  • Hate groups (and they know who they are) which includes some high-profile "religious" leaders.
  • Politicians with no understanding of what it takes to be torn from two sides after you defend your life or another's. They can't hold a real job and there should be the conversation about 2 term limits.
  • Judicial activists that don't think that the crime the defendant committed was all that bad and lets the felon out on their own reconnaissance for the third time only to have that felon kill someone's child.
  • Sanctuary cities. Immigration Laws are just that, laws. Civil leaders, elected or appointed that don't comply should be federally prosecuted for violating those laws.
  • Stop blaming guns. Laws like the "Safe Act" only create criminals out of law-abiding citizens. Criminals don't care how many bullets they have in the magazine.
  • News media,,,no strike that, "entertainment industry media". There are few real reporters anymore. The current model is to beat a subject to death even when everyone knows it's BS and make yourself the news.
How do we fix this?
  • Protests are fine if done civilly. Do not allow riots. If someone is burning a building or breaking windows in the interest of "social outrage", lock them up immediately. 
  • Incarcerate those who instigate violence and don't preach to me about 1st amendment rights; you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater. 
  • The media must STOP giving a podium to criminals, hate groups and morons.
I did this job for over 20 years, survived and retired. I have been training LEOs for the last 17 years and the job isn't getting any easier or less technical. Unless you've been a cop you don't really understand what it takes to be one. It is a huge sacrifice and burden for your family and friends. You find yourself becoming very conservative-minded because you seen what "liberal" policies have done. You finally understand that the biggest racist is the one yelling "racist" because it's not the color of your skin or their's. It's your uniform they hate.
God bless all law enforcement and their friends and families,

Somebody from the Left News needs to take a breath.....

Slow down, count to ten, get the paper bag and breath easy into it....Get a grip already, President Trump is going to be around for 8 years, so sit back and let your blood pressure down.. Seriously...
Wow, the Left news is in an all-time mega-frenzy against President Donald Trump and I'm loving it.
He doesn't care what they think and that bothers them, I mean they are the smartest people on the planet, just ask them..,, It's all about Russia but nobody questioned all the Russian contact the Clinton's and their foundation had in the last 4 years.
President Trump in the famous words of John Wayne to Barbara Walters "Don't let the bastards get you down."
Keep up the good work we elected you to do.
