I've noticed some online wags are comparing Jen Psaki of the White House to Peppermint Patty of the Peanuts cartoon strip. I have to admit that there is a passing resemblance, but I think that the comparison is unfair. To Peppermint Patty. I remember Patty fondly as an honest, thoughtful friend of Charlie Brown. Whereas, Psaki is a lying, deceitful caricature of a political spokesperson.

It's been crazy around here for the past couple of days. Not bad crazy, just life crazy.
Next week is going to be crazier. We're leaving or Fallon, NV on Wednesday and we're trying to get life in line so that we can leave on time. Life is resisting, but I think we have a handle o it.
I'll try to keep you guys updated.

No, it's not. It's my right. If you don't want to be called our for dumbass stunts, don't do dumbass things. If you don't want to be in the public eye, become a private citizen.
It is not only our right, it is our duty to criticize elected officials. To reveal their hypocrisy, to put their deportment in sunshine. If a person does not want that scrutiny, they should retire into the anonymity of private life.
If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

On the border, down near Del Rio, TX, we're seeing an influx of Haitian folks trying to get into the US. Over 10,0000 the last I heard. Most of them camped under the International Bridge. Governor Abbot has sent a bunch of DPS folks down there to try and stem the flow.
There is liberal outage, I understand, because the Texans brought horses. Imagine that! Texas law enforcement on horses. The photo below is causing especial angst because... I don't know hy.
That trooper ain't whipping anyone. With his left hand, he is controlling the horse, with his right hand, He is grabbing the miscreant by the shirt-sleeve. That rope-looking thing between them seems to be loose. It doesn't appear to the rains.
Here's another photo.

Something interesting from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. It seems that during recent hurricanes, licensed growers of exotic hoofed species suffered some pen damage, and the critters got out.
I was on a deer stand years ago, and had an emu wander by. But, in another month or so, deer season will open, and there are exotics inthe woods. LWF's guidance is clear. Drag 'em out.
I found this on Facebook originally, but decided to go to the LWF website to double-check. Sure enough, the notice is here. Interesting. Some lucky Louisiana hunter may get an elk this year.

Remember last week, that picture of AOC in her fancy designer dress that said "Tax the Rich"? At the Met Gala? That powerful message,speaking truth to power? Yeah that one.
As it turns out, that designer, the gal who designed the dress and hosted AOC at the party, doesn't believe a word of it.
The ‘Tax the Rich’ dress designer whom @AOC went to the Met Gala with:• Owes $103,220 in back taxes
• Received $41,666 in PPP (Payroll Protection Program)
• Has ‘legions’ of unpaid interns
• Owes $62,722 in workers comp
• Still found $250,000 for a table at the Met Gala
The hypocrisy is stunning. What the dress should have said was "Tax Other People"
