A better candidate for prison, actually, would be whoever tweets under the name @BarackObama. When he Tweeted: “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous” he was promulgating a demonstrable untruth.
No one has ever doubted that climate changes.
Pretty much everyone – probably more than 97 per cent, even – agrees that there is a degree of anthropogenic input, even it’s just the barely measurable contribution of beef cattle farts or the heat produced by cities.
But the dangerous bit? No one has come even close to demonstrating it, there is no reliable evidence for it, and very few scientists – certainly far, far fewer than 97 per cent of them – would ever stake their reputations on such a tendentious claim.

It isn’t over either. Gird your loins GLAAD.
Yahoo TV is reporting on the whine fest over at the GLAAD offices:
“In the five-and-a-half years I’ve worked at GLAAD, I’ve never received so many violently angry phone calls and social media posts attacking GLAAD for us speaking out against these comments,” the media watchdog organization’s vice president of communications Rich Ferraro toldTheWrap.
He said those reactions range from those who simply believe as Robertson believes to those who feel that GLAAD and A&E’s actions limit the reality star’s free speech.
Yeah. Christians are upset that with over a 1,000 TV channels, one Christian guy can’t stay on his program because GAYS!!! Don’t you guys have the LOGO channel that we all subsidize and block from our own cable providers? Yes. Yes, you do. So there is no good reason that you should be upset about a reality…

Sheen, 48, has written a lengthy piece about the star on his Twitter account, threatening Phil with a media attack and saying he is in the ‘crosshairs of a MaSheen style media beat down.’
You or a drug induced haze talking again?
What have you ever done worth mentioning?
I’d like to see this. Since you have challenged Phil I think you should be the one to head down to West Monroe and have at it..
Phil chooses weapons and place…
This dude is a terrorist. He physically leads attacks on others and threatens their well being and livelihoods.
All over a big fish..
Plus ‘star’ exactly how many viewers does his show have…5? 6?
Who has Phil ever threatened or attacked?

(SOURCE) Wichita police say a woman set herself on fire in the Lowe’s parking lot on East Kellogg early Sunday evening.
The woman purchased material to set herself on fire within the store, police said.
The woman is in critical condition, and emergency personnel took her to an area hospital.
On this date in 1984, self-employed electronics repairman Bernhard Goetz just said no to subway mugging. Letting his gun do the talking, Goetz shot four unarmed men he claimed were trying to rob him. He fled the state after the shooting, but turned himself in nine days later in New Hampshire.
Goetz was tried for felony assault, attempted murder, and illegal weapons possession. He was acquitted of the assault and attempted murder charges, but convicted of the weapons charge, for which he served eight months in jail.
Following the criminal trial, Darrell Cabey, one of the men who was shot, filed a lawsuit against Goetz. The jury found Goetz liable for Cabey’s injuries and awarded Cabey – who was left paralyzed by the shooting – $43 million. Goetz responded by filing for bankruptcy.
Since the shooting, Goetz has run unsuccessfully for mayor of New York, and for public advocate. He…
