Firewood Time

Yes I know, it’s 95 degrees outside, but it’s that time again, time to restock the firewood. The Nations weather patterns have been strange, to say the least! So today, I had a ½ cord of firewood delivered and stacked which normally gets me to mid-December before I need to re-order to finish off the winter which is until early March. March 15th is normally my last frost.

With the weird weather everyone one is having in the north makes me suspect the winter here in Northeast Florida will show some light snow at least once this winter (it’s been about 30 years since the last snow). We like a fire going in the fireplace, it’s a very peaceful time, but it also helps keep the electric bill under control, because we are all-electric and the heat-pump works hard and long during December.

Is it a real cost savings to burn wood for a little heat? No, what you see is $204.00 worth of delivered and stacked firewood (a 4 x 8-foot face cord). December I will have to order another load to finish the cold season.

By: Hyram F. Suddfluffel, PhD, (Political Science)

I have a degree in Political Science, and I am a card-carrying Libertarian. I've been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next!

1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.

2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.

3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THEY WANT.. That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazile, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing cover up activities.

A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of democrats will start being charged and going to prison.

All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath – and they will turn on each other. That is already starting.

4. Lastly, one more thing will happen, the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information.

They will incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged.

So let's move on to impeachment.

Lot Cop, Coming to a Wal-Mart Near You?

I’ve read about additional (portable) security cameras are showing up in Wal-Mart parking lots. And sometimes like the Wal-Mart I shop at has a very large, multi-store parking lot so two LOT-COP units deployed.

Now, most of us know every Wal-Mart has more parking lot surveillance cameras than the Pentagon! So what’s up? Do they know something that they’re not talking about like maybe the changing store area demographics and they want to get ahead of it to lessen parking lot crime and their liability? It’s no secret that Wall-Mart has the lions share of Police calls to their retail stores.

What are the capabilities of the Lot-Cop?
The solar-powered “Lot-Cops” are rigged to a trailer and feature two pan/tilt/zoom cameras, a 360-degree camera, a pulsing blue strobe light, floodlights and speakers.

Times are changing for us. Like I tell people, scan any parking lot you shop at for potential danger (people milling around) that may be waiting for you. Even when leaving the store to return to your car look at the area where your car is before just walking to it. Then immediately after getting in the car lock the door before you do anything else!

Here’s one of the two LOT-COP’s at my Wall-Mart.

A closer look.

It’s solar powered with two, 400-watt solar panels.

The cameras deployed on its’ telescoping pole.

A closer look at the cameras.

Surprise Surprise!

Another close Clinton friend commits suicide by hanging himself while under a 24/7 suicide watch. I wouldn't be surprised if he also had a bullet hole in the back of his head.
