The rush to Political Correct…

Yeah it is offensive.  But it is there right to be ignorant.   Yeah I get it.  But rather find obtuse angles at attacking President Trump,  do something but whine.  Whining doesn’t feed children.   Whining doesn’t win anything.

On CNN, Don Lemon was chatting with Morgan Freeman.  Don asked Freeman about racism and Morgan said, “stop talking about it”.  When we impower any kind of bigotry, the bigot wins.   I remmber on Mayor in D.C.

The racism we ignore

“Marion Barry’s mouth set him up. The disgraced former mayor of Washington, DC, who was caught on tape in a 1987 crack cocaine sting, made an even bigger disgrace of himself and his city on Tuesday. Celebrating a Democratic primary victory, the city councilman attacked small businesses owned by “Asians” in his district. Then the race-baiting clown doubled down”.

Barry told supporters in DC’s Ward 8: “We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go.” Once pushed out, Barry promised, he would replace the foreign invaders with “African-American business people.”

He then took to Twitter to expound on the perils of “dirty” Asian shops in his neighborhood. Barry posted photos of supposedly hazardous stores — including Chinese restaurants surrounded not by trash or toxic waste, but by Plexiglas barriers and reinforced doors.

He explained that Asian-owned businesses that had the audacity to protect themselves from crime were “lowering standards” in his constituents’ communities.

Crazy Barry doesn’t just need another round of rehab. He needs a reality check.

As a commenter on DCist.com noted, 2010 Census data showed that “Asians made up 0.4 percent of the Ward 8 population. . . If anything, Asians are moving out, not in — the Asian population decreased 13.6 percent . . . between 2000 and 2010.”

Most of us remember Martin Luther King and that tragic day.  MLK day is great, but we only pay lip service to that day.  In many cities statues and MLK Blvd are situated in blighted neighbor hoods.  PC people get real.  Former-President Obama payed lip service to helping people feel better.    Rather than focus on idiots, we prefer to sticks and Stones.

In Burkburnette Texas, I often played with blacks (Across the steet from blacks).  We played and got dirty ane one day this black kid call me a #Peckerwood.   A kid who was playing with us in an ash pile told that kid to leave me alone.   Kids I think get it. My own mom lived in a vacuum,  but that was rectified.   I have a  two black nephews.

One day my own mother seen that ‘those people” are us. She got presents for the one nephew and she had to be fair to him.   He loves my  mother and always wants to stay overnight with her.   My niece married a black guy.   That is their baby.  We live to learn.  So what’s up with people? Right.

My Aunt and Uncle adopted a kid (who was black).   Joel Stephens was an 5-star recuit at Syracuse.   A reporter asked about  his “black brother”.  Joel said,  “he is not my  black brother, he is my brother”.    Unity matters.  Faith Matters.  Cancer sucks.

 

Joel Stephens.

41kyXBoyRlL

 

One night our dad was dropping the F-word at supper and all five of us went off on him. We lived in upstate NY.  A side note, Joel died at 22 with a rare form of Cancer.  Joel was a Christian.  He thanked God for his cancer! Huh? Great faith there. The owner of the Baltimore Orioles told the the Stephens family medical bills.  He even has a Joel Stephens Day.  But back to the event with our dad.  No one instilled us with bigotry.   We respected our friends and we did appreciate that bigots are going to do what they do.  My preference is to avoid such stupidity. And like Morgan Freeman said to stop talking about it.  Lemon was shocked.

We do NOT empower bigots. We politely consider the source.  Fighting over this,  just sustains the offending party, but ignoring them enough, they just go away.  That is not the take-away point. We need to respect each other.  See each other as friends, not hyphenating names but realizing the great potential of all of us.   Character Matters.

Gert gets going, Stronger.

While winds are up too 100mph, it is moving NE and away from CONUS.  The other systems are looking for an energy source and a favorable field for development.  In lieu of all that,  these other systems are moving west but will eventfully find their place following Gert.  By the way Gert is the place  for systems to go because of lowest pressure.  More on that later.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Tornado risk.
  Elevated Hail risk.
  Elevated Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Elevated Flooding risk.
  Significant Lightning risk.

DISCUSSION...

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue
into early this evening along and south of the Interstate 44
corridor. Additional thunderstorms will also develop across
central Kansas late this afternoon. This activity will congeal
into a line of thunderstorms which will then move southeast across
the Missouri Ozarks from later this evening into the overnight
period.

A few severe thunderstorms will be possible through this evening,
mainly to the west of an Osage Beach to Springfield to Anderson
line. Large hail up to the size of quarters and damaging winds
will be possible with a few of the storms. There is a limited risk
for an isolated tornado this evening mainly west of an Osceola to
Greenfield to Neosho line.

Torrential rainfall can also be expected from these storms due to
high moisture content in the atmosphere. Flash flooding will
therefore be possible in areas where multiple storms move over
the same areas. The highest risk for flash flooding will be
across southeastern Kansas and western Missouri.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Periodic showers and thunderstorms will occur through the
upcoming week and into the weekend.

Heat index values will be the 90s each day into the weekend and
as high as 100 by early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed into this evening west of an
Osage Beach to Springfield to Anderson line.

1120 AM CDT Wed Aug 16 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Elevated Hail risk.
  Elevated Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Elevated Flooding risk.
  Significant Lightning risk.
  Limited Excessive heat risk.

DISCUSSION...

Afternoon heat indices will top out in the middle to upper 90s,
mainly across western Missouri and southeastern Kansas.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop from
west to east across the outlook area this afternoon. Additional
thunderstorms can then be expected tonight as a cold front moves
southeast through the region.

A few severe thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and
tonight, mainly to the west and north of a Gainesville to Salem
line. Large hail and damaging winds will be possible with the
strongest storms.

Torrential rainfall can also be expected from these storms due to
high moisture content in the atmosphere. Flash flooding will
therefore be possible in areas where multiple storms move over
the same areas. The highest risk for flash flooding will be across
southeastern Kansas and western Missouri.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Periodic showers and thunderstorms will occur through the
upcoming week and into the weekend.

Heat index values will be the 90s each day into the weekend and
as high as 100 by early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed later this afternoon and tonight
mainly to the west and north of a Gainesville to Salem line.

The National Weather Service in Flagstaff has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
  Yavapai County in west central Arizona...

* Until 945 PM MST

* At 650 PM MST, National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated a
  large area of thunderstorms producing heavy rainfall over central
  Yavapai county. This will cause many instances of minor flooding
  in the advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Chino Valley, Prescott Valley, Prescott, Dewey-humboldt, Skull
  Valley, Williamson Valley, Iron Springs and White Spar Campground.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually deeper
than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful enough
to sweep vehicles off the road. When encountering flooded roads, make
the smart choice: turn around, don`t drown.

Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
803 AM EDT Thu Aug 10 2017

Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America
Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South
America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the
Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite
imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis.

Based on 0600 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through 
1015 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURES...
Tropical Storm Franklin is centered near 19.8N 98.3W at 10/1200 
UTC or about 50 nm ENE of Mexico City moving W at 13 kt. 
Estimated minimum central pressure is 997 mb. Maximum sustained 
wind speed is 35 kt with gusts to 45 kt. Numerous moderate and 
isolated strong convection is from 18N-22N between 94W-97W.
Scattered moderate convection is elsewhere from 14N-22N between
93W-102w. See the latest NHC Intermediate Public Advisory under 
AWIPS/WMO headers MIATCPAT2/WTNT32 KNHC and the full 
Forecast/Advisory under AWIPS/WMO headers MIATCMAT2/WTNT22 KNHC 
for more details.

...TROPICAL WAVES...
A tropical wave extends from 10N32W to 21N30W moving W at 5-10 
kt. The wave coincides with relatively sharp 700 mb troughing 
between 27W-40W. A 1013 mb low is embedded within the monsoon
trough at the southern extent of the wave axis near 10N32W.
Isolated moderate convection is from 10N-13N between 33W-36W.

A tropical wave extends from 12N62W to 22N57W moving W at 10-15 
kt. A 1013 mb low is centered along the wave axis near 19N59W 
providing focus for scattered moderate convection from 18N-22N 
between 54W-60W.

A tropical wave extends from 07N85W to 19N84W moving W at 10-15 
kt. The wave remains embedded within middle to upper level low 
centered over the western Caribbean Sea near 16N84W. Scattered 
moderate convection is from 06N-16N between 76W-85W.

...ITCZ/MONSOON TROUGH...
The monsoon trough extends from the African coast near 11N15W to 
12N28W to 06N42W. The Intertropical Convergence Zone axis extends
from 06N42W to 04N52W. Aside from convection associated with the 
tropical waves...scattered moderate convection is from 07N-12N 
between 13W-25W...and from 07N-12N between 51W-57W.

...DISCUSSION...

GULF OF MEXICO...
The primary focus this morning is Tropical Storm Franklin as it 
moves across interior portions of east-central Mexico and
continues to weaken. Scattered showers and strong tstms continue 
to impact the SW Gulf waters generally S of 22N W of 93W. 
Elsewhere across the basin...an upper level ridge anchored over 
the Rio Grande River valley extends an axis eastward over the 
northern Gulf and Florida peninsula. At the surface...mostly 
gentle to moderate SE winds prevail under relatively tranquil 
conditions. An upper level trough is noted on water vapor imagery
over the Bahamas and western Cuba that continues to support a 
surface trough analyzed from the Florida Straits near 24N81W N-NE
to western Grand Bahama Island to 30N78W. This trough is forecast
to continue moving westward and bring increased cloudiness and 
precipitation to the Florida peninsula and eastern Gulf waters
through tonight. The trough is expected to stall across Florida 
Friday night into early Saturday as surface ridging will anchor 
across the north-central Gulf waters and provide fair weather and
tranquil conditions for the upcoming weekend.

CARIBBEAN SEA... 
An upper level low is centered over the western Caribbean near
16N84W. In addition...a tropical wave is analyzed along 85W and 
both features continue to generate scattered showers and tstms 
across portions of Central America and the SW Caribbean generally 
S of 16N between 76W-85W. The upper level low is forecast to move
west and weaken over Central America while the tropical wave 
moves into the East Pacific region. Farther east...the remainder 
of the central and eastern Caribbean is under the influence of 
mostly clear skies and overall fair conditions with moderate to 
fresh trades prevailing. A few scattered showers and tstms are 
occurring across the SE Caribbean from 11N-15N between 63W-68W as
a tropical wave currently along 60W begins to impact the Lesser 
Antilles and eastern Caribbean.

...HISPANIOLA...
Mostly clear skies and fair conditions prevail this morning 
across the island. Overall dry conditions are expected through 
Friday.

ATLANTIC OCEAN...
A middle to upper level trough is centered over the Florida
Straits and western Cuba this morning and reflects a surface 
trough analyzed from 24N81W to 30N78W. The surface trough 
provides focus for widely scattered showers and tstms from 23N- 
28N between 75W-81W. The upper level trough is expected to become
absorbed by an upper level low centered over the western 
Caribbean Sea later today. Otherwise...the remainder of the SW 
North Atlc lies under the influence of a broad upper level trough 
over the eastern CONUS. The troughing supports a stationary front
extending from offshore of the Outer Banks to coastal Georgia 
with scattered showers and isolated tstms generally remaining N of
32N W of 73W. Farther east...another upper level low is centered 
near 23N57W that continues to enhance convection in the vicinity 
of the tropical wave between 55W-65W and a dissipating stationary
front analyzed along 27N. Isolated showers and tstms are occurring
from 23N-28N between 53W-63W. The stationary front links E-NE to 
a 1018 mb low centered near 32N38W. Isolated showers and tstms 
are occurring in the vicinity of the low N of 26N between 36W- 
44W.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest
Louisiana, southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

An upper level low pressure system coupled with a rather moist
atmosphere resulted in the development of isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms, across portions of deep east Texas and
north central Louisiana this morning. Rainfall rates upwards of
around two inches per hour across north central Louisiana pose a
threat for flash flooding, especially across low lying and poor
drainage roadways. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 10 AM
CDT for La Salle, Grant, Winn, Caldwell, Jackson, Ouachita,
Lincoln and Union Parishes.

By early this afternoon, the threat for heavy rainfall will be on
the decline as the precipitation commence to wane. However,
daytime destabilization may lead to the resurgence of additional
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms across portions of
the Four-State region, before diminishing shortly after sunset.



.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

Precipitation coverage will be on the rise Friday through early
next week, as a series of embedded disturbances within northwest
flow aloft interacts with a moist atmosphere. Gusty winds,
moderate to heavy rainfall and consequently localized flooding
will be the main threats with the stronger storms.

Franklin leaving

GULFIR172212045

Hurricane Franklin is churning out in the Southern Bay of Campeche.   It will have one last hurrah as this minimal storm goes into Mexico.  As it moves westward it will die out, but even now it is a small hurricane.  It is packing 75mph winds,  minimum low pressure of 984mb.  It’s movement is 12mph and heading due west.

Dry air is being shown on Satellite imagery, swirling towards Franklin’s center.    It is also beginning to show a ragged eye and shearing.   It will become a Tropical Depression entering Mexico.   Watches and Warnings are already out.    Expect high waves,  along with the winds and torrential downpours.  Tornadoes/Waterspouts can be expected.

The other two systems will interact w/ a cold front that extends towards New England.   These systems will be areas of Low Pressure along the frontal boundary.  The amount of rain will depend on how much moisture and the strength of these of these disturbances.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM PDT THIS
EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of northeast California and Nevada.

* Until 10 PM PDT this evening

* An upper low and abundant moisture will provide a threat for
  flash flooding through this evening.

* The highest potential for flash flooding will exist mainly north
  of Interstate 80 with lesser chances to the south where drier
  air can be seen filtering into the region. Strong outflow winds
  and small hail are more of the threat for these southern areas.

* Steep terrain, recently burned areas from wildfires, and areas
  which have already received heavy rainfall since last weekend
  will be especially at risk for flash flooding and debris
  flows.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

People in the watch area should continue to be aware of the
possibility for heavy rainfall, avoid low lying areas, and be
careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses. Do not
drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the road. The
road may be washed out or the water depth may be too great to
allow your car to cross safely.
