The FBI is a nest of vipers. Backstabbing, anti-American vipers

Don't believe me?  Go read this, and tell me I'm wrong.

I wouldn't trust the FBI any further than I could throw them at this point.  They are a corrupt, unaccountable, anti-American group of thugs for the Left.  They can all go to hell.

Planting season came late

Stopped in to Iowa to visit an old friend.  All the fields are being worked like there's no tomorrow.  My friend does some work for one of his friends who owns several acres, and he says that his friend will be operating the planters 24-7.  The fields would normally be prepped in April, but the ground is so wet that they couldn't get the tractors and machinery onto the land.  He says there's springs popping out of hillsides that never should exist.

Prepare for your food bills to go up, folks.  The farmers are working like mad, but I think that the late start combined with crappy conditions is going to make for a short harvest.

Taken last week

SSRI meds and gun violence has a post up that's worth reading.  I haven't completed it yet, so I can't formulate an opinion, but I strongly suggest that everyone take a gander.

So we were staying with friends

Friends who enjoy good food. And the Mrs. and I just came from Cajun country, essentially.  And there was much begging, and quivering of lower lips, and thus the past three dinners have been:

Shrimp and Grits, Bacon-wrapped Gouda-stuffed chicken, with sides of green beans.

Paneed meat with white gravy, sweet potatoes with candied pecans, and banana pudding.

Hoppin John, greens, and buttermilk pie.

I won't have to eat for the next few days.  Back to driving my ass off.


May have posted this one before.  Posting it anyways.

For the record, I'm for it

"It" being the return of the Pinks and Greens to the Army Uniform.

The Blues have a history to them, but they don't resonate as much as the Pinks and Greens, mainly because there isn't photo history of the Blues as a daily uniform.

For those who don't know, the Blues, with their mis-matched pants and coat, date back to the American-Indian wars, where Soldiers would be issued on uniform.  They would pack up their wool coats and wear the pants for daily use.  When it came time for formal inspection, they would unpack their coats and put them on, but because they wore their pants every day, the pants would be bleached to a lighter color than the coats.  Which led to the Blues, a Navy Blue coat and Royal Blue pants.  Today it's called the Army Service Uniform.  The Greens died a well deserved death some years ago. The Army Greens were best looked upon as a 70's polyester suit in a disgusting shade of green.  I cheered when the Army scraped the Greens in favor of the ASU.  I am cheering again as the Blues once again go to being a Dress Uniform, and the Pinks and Greens come in as the daily wear.

There have been plenty of uniforms I didn't like.  I loath the beret.  I couldn't stand the ACUs.  But this, I can support without reservation.

The Narrative Continues

And men are not women, nor women men, no matter what the politically correct narrative pushers insist.

It's simple science.
