    So, we have a central air conditioner that is approaching 25 years of service. There have been a couple of minor fixes over the years, but the major pieces in the attic and outside are the original pieces. So, lets say that the compressor unit fails and we decide to put in a new outside unit. But, what about the controls, coil, furnace and air blower? Would you replace these pieces because of age even though they perform satisfactorily? Just get whole, new air conditioning equipment properly matched, or live with the pieces. I realize you can do what ever you want to do, but the question is more of what is done and why.

  • Black Friday Sales. Did you pay the Tariff on Chinese Appliances?

    We looked at refrigerators on the internet and thought things looked odd. Then decided that the import tariff is in the price of things made in China. Does anyone know if the tariff is in the prices and is anyone buying Chinese?

  • Can you recommend a liberal judge who can be bought? Trump continues to attack Obama's malfeasance.?

    Well, as you know Obama and his liberal judges came up with schemes to flood the country with illegal aliens. One of them was the "catch and release" regulation that said if the federals did catch an illegal and he asked for asylum, the law required a complicated legal process to determine if the alien was entitled to have asylum.

    Well, as you know Obama and his liberal judges came up with schemes to flood the country with illegal aliens. One of them was the "catch and release" regulation that said if the federals did catch an illegal and he asked for asylum, the law required a complicated legal process to determine if the alien was entitled to have asylum. The probability being that he was not qualified. But the intent of this was to build a backlog of cases to jam up the process. The jam works because the federals have a problem with what to do with an illegal alien who is waiting to be process. The federal judges have ordered that he cannot be kept in custody. The Obama procedure was to simply release the illegal alien into the USA population until the date of the hearing for asylum or deportation. Of course, the illegal alien does not appear, but does disappear into the USA. Now, this "catch and release" scam is so well known that there are thousands of Central Americans marching up through Mexico. If they can get one foot on US territory, they will ask for asylum and that will start the long process. And their immediate release into American society, as per the rulings of liberal judges. The news is that Trump has a deal with Mexico that the illegal alien will be a resident of Mexico until the asylum hearing. They won't be allowed to come into the USA, but if they do, they will be placed in Mexico, not the USA. So, will they find a liberal judge who will rule for USA residency only?

The reasons to live there are no more. All there is, is a mess. Now, you have a few thousand illegal aliens at the border who want into California. The people of California want them in. So, wouldn't it be smart to take them to burned out Paradise and tell them that this is their new home. Clean it up and rebuild what they want. It seems to solve a lot of the gripes, like reparations for white skins moving in and taking the land from the indians and only brown skins will do the hard jobs like cleaning up after fires, and work equity to build something. The displaced white skins will be moved to Arizona and put on the Paradise (same name) or Scottsdale reservations in areas that are not the existing indian reservations.

If it is "global warming", won't it continue until all of California is burnt? Like the experts project long term trends for "global warming" that only get worse. That means more fires next year and every year from continued drought caused by "global warming". It can only get to a certain level of dryness before the trees die and the place turns into a desert. Burning of the trees is part of that natural process. And more regulation is futile. All the regulation and restrictions so far have gotten you to this situation. If is doubtful that more of the same would make things better. Like doing away with plastic bags will make it rain.

    Do you think California has reached the tipping point by the election of the recent crop of crazy liberals to the extent that the civilization has started the decline? Sort of like Nero burned Rome or when Rome found the barbarians at the gates, and other significant events of past high civilizations. Do you think the illegal alien invasions is the modern equivalent of the "barbarians at the gates". It doesn't seem likely that most people would rebuild there since the esthetics of the area is permanently changed for generations and there is no going back to anything. The trees are gone, but the brush will be back even thicker in about 5 years. Certainly no reason to construct a house of the materials that they used. You would think that the liberal bureaucrats would pass regulations on building materials in these fire endangered areas since they are inclined to regulate everything else. For example, walls could easily be made from adobe clay and cement.

  • Why can't you be an American citizen by claiming citizenship? Why let the republicans decide who can and cannot be an American.?

    Why can't an immigrant be a citizen just by asserting his right to claim the American citizenship? Why should the government be involved in this process at all? Obviously all that they do is to cause a lot of trouble and it doesn't solve anything.

    Do you think that the radical California democrats are actually burning the more affluent people out of California to get it ready for the millions of new immigrants from south of the border? Even if not intentional, won't the accidental fires have the same consequence? Those expensive, nice white people homes being burnt to the ground to eventually be replaced with concrete/adobe shanties for new immigrants? Something than won't burn. And besides, the immigrants will gather all the loose wood and use it to cook with. So, the immigrants will prevent the fires that the white affluent people were too lazy to prevent. Relying on electricity, etc. It just seems that nature of the habitat is just not compatible with the nature of the rich California and their lavish lifestyles. It looks like the California universities can have one last big research project before they close down and move to China. It would be how much portland cement do you mix with clay to make "new adobe" that will last for years in a California climate.

  • If a Law is corrupt, should it be enforced? How is Constitutional original intent over ridden by a Supreme Court decision?

    As I understand it, the Supreme Court decision that permits citizenship for illegal aliens is a footnote to an opinion written by Brennan in 1982.

Some scholar on Constitutional law will have to explain what that means. Does a footnote mean a trial ballon that can be changed by other means, like a Presidential decision to not enforce it. But anyway, this issue about anchor babies has long been known and discussed. During the preparation of the 14th amendment the specific question was asked about illegal aliens and the authors stated that it did not include illegals. So you have Brennan against the original intent authors. Trump might make precedent and not enforce Brennan based on an executive decision of a judge's decision to override original intent by slipping in a Mickey Finn in a decision. In other words a liberal judge cannot expect enforcement of corruption of the law using judicial tricks. This would tend to require judicial interpretations to be more precise, direct, specific and conforming to the original intent and law.

    If the US military has to provide POW camps and house several thousand illegal Hondurans, can't the people behind this political stunt be sued? Let's say that George Soros is behind this and spending $20 million to have these people transported up to the US border. Since Trump intends on retaining them until they are deported, there is going to be some heavy expense involved, say a $100 million. The troops, and the POW camps. So, why doesn't the USA sue George Soros for the expense/damage? One would think that the federal government would want to know and has ways to find out who is behind all of this and how it was planned and paid for. They should be able to trace out the money payments and pin it down exactly. One of the things is that the voting laws allow the rich billionaires to spend their money on the elections. But, they are also responsible for what they do and the damage they create. If the government doesn't reign in the billionaires by making them responsible, they will only get more extravagant in their ambitions.

So, that is a new term and seems to be carefully selected to be sure that the gravity of the arrest can be maintained. And perhaps to deny you from knowing so that you will not call it a "fake bomb". So the question is can you provide your idea of what is the "energetic material" to make it either a real/dangerous bomb or a non-explosvive bomb. For example, do you think it was filled with gun powder, ammonium nitrate fertilizer, C-4 or what? My guess is that it was filled with flour. That will fit to term used and in the right situation will blow up. Lots of different kinds of dust are explosive, but not in pipe bombs.

If there is a 3rd and its big, what do you think they would do? It probably relates to the 10,000 Honduran march in Mexico. Do you think the democrats would actually kill some of these people to enlist sympathy for the democrats right before the election? The accusation would be that Trump has ordered them to stop, and they didn't so the military shot some of them as a warning.
