"Tribally against one another. The reality of a murderous cop in Minneapolis is exploited to advance the theory of universal white racism. The notion that members of one race are morally defective by virtue of their inescapable history and current circumstance to be white is to be racist. White is to be privileged to be white is to be the problem which is all crap. People are individuals to be judged. One man said once by the content of their character, not the color of their skin yet the empowering bigotry of the Democratic Party is that white people by the color of their skin are the oppressors and occupiers of society engaged collectively in a centuries long conspiracy against people of Color and deserving of societies, rage and vengeance, which is all nothing but bigotry. It has been decided not to eliminate bigotry in America but to replace one bigotry with another or more correctly another to bigotry. Because the prejudice against police officers is the intellectual and moral equivalent of any other sort of bigotry when you group people and disparage those people by virtue of their membership in that group that is bigotry whether you group them by their sexual orientation, their religion, their race or their occupation, hating somebody because she wears a badge is the same thing is hating somebody because of the color of her skin, seeing one bad cop or thousand bad cops, and judging all police officers, as a consequence is the same thing as seeing one bad person of color or thousand bad people of a certain color and judging all people of a certain color. The democratic. Party is insidiously promoting hatred of police officers and white people. You see night on the evening news and the recent riots and much of the rhetoric of the demonstrations promoted, which is an evil way to honor a murdered man, the most recent picture of George Floyd shows him smiling and holding up a Bible a Bible with chief, which teaches that all men are brothers, and that we should love one another. Those are the truth that should be advanced applied earnestly they will improve conduct and build bonds on both sides of the badge and on both. Both sides of the color barrier. We are meant to live in peace and respect for all people in all circumstances that is more important than the November election. No party should seek to burn down the nation in order to preside over the ruins.

Way Out in the country, we both have carry permits. Both have done those. Sheriff's departments safety course both taking that. and. We're feel pretty comfortable carrying of firearms. My point. Counterpoint to fire pistol firearm. Glad to a shotgun as somebody older like my wife, a shotguns kind of unwilling to handle her. Also if you have grandchildren, a shotgun needs to be loaded at all times in order to protect yourself. You have a break in. And shotguns are pretty hard hiding. Had Grandchildren he's. Being being taught people over six foot, the both of us, we have high reach places where we can put a hand gun to protect ourselves if somebody breaks housecall, so we have a dog. But a shock may work for a of people but I think like you're older, and you have some health issues to begin with. Protect yourself I don't know if the shotguns away to go perfectly reasonable.

But it's it's late and it's very concealable small. It's a high. It's a high end firearm. You want to work every time you spend the money for good fire. I've had a permit. Since I was eighteen years old seventy eight. I've had a long time and you know very carefully. Handguns and I try to get myself in public I don't care if people can say it, but you know times are tough. We live very difficult times right now, and you know you know out in the country when you live in a dark driveway like that. You're bumping tonight if they get your attention so. You know I think I think everybody? Is You know if they don't carry the should? They. Don't have a firearm handy for them. I think they should, but OPPA cautions nationally had taken place especially. I got six grandchildren. And you know I I'm very cautious when it come to the house, nothing's but then reach, and everything's locked up you and lower levels, but. I guess that's my comment on the shots. Great Defense Great Defense, but maybe not not good for all one hundred percent very well. Said I'm so glad you made that point. A handgun can be a wonderful home defense weapon, one hundred percent one of my mentioned the Taurus judge. A revolver that holds four ten or forty five long Colt that comes in a polymer frame. That's fairly lightweight You can get a good grip on. It It'd be perfect nightstand of a gun. It'd be a you know you see it'd be. It'd be ideal, but but a handgun which you can keep on your person and his handy, and which again you know is. Is Easier to carry and as long as your hands can operate, stuff could be a perfect perfect choice and and a superior choice. The one thing about shotgun is most how to use it.

Scientists are still working out there models of earth's atmosphere models that become more important as our planet's climate changes, even as they work out. The details though, they're already thinking about applying those models to exit planets worlds that orbit stars other than the sun modeling, the workings of another planet isn't easy, though. That's because we know very little about the planets and even their stars for most of the planets discovered. So far, scientists know how big the planet is how heavy it is. And how far it is from its star they've measured some of the chemistry of the atmospheres of a few planets, and they know the brightness and temperature of the parents stars. But that's still leaves a lot of unknowns. Scientists don't know how a planet is tilted on its axis, for example, the key factor in creating the seasons here on earth. They don't know how much of a planet surface is covered by land or water. And they don't know if the planet has moons which can generate tides and help keep a planet from wobbling to wildly. They also don't know much about the stars that host planets in particular, they need to know how the light from a star varies and whether the star produces big explosions particles in energy still scientists are beginning to generate their first models of individual planets models.

Then tonight, it'll be cloudy and rain or move in probably right around midnight and just the early hours of tomorrow morning, and it looks like at that point temperatures will be at or below freezing. So will arrive is freezing rain, maybe even mixed with a little bit of sleet for a time. And then that freezing rain will continue into tomorrow morning causing a lease very slippery. If not dangerous travel in some areas will start tonight in the mid twenties. Temperatures are going to slowly climb through the night. But it's still think we're at or below freezing most areas through about lunchtime tomorrow. And then as we get later in the afternoon, it'll go over to just plain, rain and drizzle temperatures. Will work in the upper thirties, then Thursday temperatures. Milder more rain at times as we get in the mid to upper forty s we're looking at Friday colder, much, colder, windy with clouds and some snow showers. Highs will be in the upper twenties.

"WWE J NewsRadio nine fifty AccuWeather meteorologist dean devore's. Joining us live now with the updated forecast, am I gonna get the walk in with my little pup. You will you might have to take the umbrella because I think there's gonna be some showers of rain and snow I think for metro Detroit, it's is much likely. It's going to be some rain at the onset than it is snow areas to the north and west of town, maybe more snow than rain, then as these basically kind of like pulses of snow and rain showers, keep going into the evening hours. Then everyone ends a snow. Temperatures are going to be in the mid to upper thirties when that precipitation arrives here later this morning in the afternoon and then falling back to near the freezing. Mark the evening, and then later tonight wants the precipitation ends, I think we go down below freezing. And that's what I'd be worried about some icy spots into tomorrow morning rested tomorrow should be okay. As we get back up to near forty in the afternoon. And then it's going to be some rain or drizzle tomorrow night into early Friday. Friday's damp and chilly during the day, the high forty four and right now, it looks like Saturday and Sunday, I thought had some rain and especially on Saturday. But it looks like the second piece of this. Storm stays tour south and east over the weekend. So we could just be dry and chilly with clouds and some sunny breaks both days of the weekend. We'll keep an eye on that aspect. More media concerns are coming up later today. We're starting out mid upper twenties this morning twenty six Pontiac twenty-seven downtown Twenty-eight metro airport. Clouds thickening, we're going to see some rain and snow showers as we go through the afternoon, ending of some snow showers this evening coating do an inch in some spots and icy spots later tonight as we dropped back below freezing.

"J NewsRadio nine fifty the AccuWeather forecast. Now live from AccuWeather meteorologist dean devore Heidi. Hey, so this is what's happening right now. Jackie who were trying to push some warmer air into metro Detroit from the south and west, but the cold air, that's been entrenched in our area is kind of crying foul here, not wanting to let go, and so that's what's creating these snow showers that are kind of running through our area. They're starting to pick up a little bit in intensity. As we go through the day when the precipitations light enough, we may take that over to some drizzle. And so that could be going back and forth for a while. And then I think it's mainly drizzle and light rain tonight. The issue will always be the temperature through the day and into the evening hours, and it may take that long to get up to the freezing Mark. But once we do, and it looks like temperatures kind of hold there for a little bit and then slowly rise in the mid thirties by daybreak tomorrow. And it's still going to be damped. I think first thing tomorrow morning with some light, rain or drizzle. But again, the worst of the icy patches would be untreated surfaces through the day and into the evening hours should get a little bit better overnight. This would be neighborhood roads, sidewalks spots in parking lots at aren't treated, right. Could be a little I see. So just be careful temperatures. Then tomorrow, we'll get up in the low forties with clouds lingering through the day rain. Most pushes back in Saturday may hold off till the second part of the afternoon more than the early part of the morning, but the caveat about that Jackie is if you've got travel north are going to be in northern the northern part of the lower peninsula, you're going to get snow so the farther north you go the more wintry gets here. Metro detroit. It looks like a solid rain event into Saturday. Evening variably cloudy, a passing shower on Sunday. Highs will get up in the low fifties back to near forty colder on Monday, temperatures standing up or twenties right now the slow rise to near the freezing. Mark by the evening, keeping an eye on those icy patches here on entreated surfaces the rest of the day. I'm AccuWeather meteorologist dean devore's w w j NewsRadio nine fifty. All right. Thank you dean. And we check traffic.
