If I'm having you housesit for me for a week your only job is is to make sure the house doesn't burn down and water the plants

It doesn't mean you can redecorate and remodel
============================================

"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em," William Shakespeare wrote in Twelfth Night, setting up a prank to humiliate a pretentious servant. It isn't clear which camp Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin (R) would place herself in, but on Tuesday she took advantage of Gov. Brad Little's (R) out-of-state travels — for the second time this year — to issue a pandemic-related executive order and move to press the Idaho National Guard into border patrol duty.

As soon as Little left to meet with nine other GOP governors in Texas, McGeachin issued an executive order prohibiting private companies from requiring employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, among other things. She also asked Maj. Gen. Michael J. Garshak how she could activate the National Guard and send them to the U.S.-Mexico border, The Associated Press reports.

"I am unaware of any request for Idaho National Guard assistance under the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) from Texas or Arizona," Garshak said in a one-paragraph reply. "As you are aware, the Idaho National Guard is not a law enforcement agency."


Little, who did send State Police troopers to the border in June to help stop cross-border drug trafficking, was a little more direct. "I am in Texas performing my duties as the duly elected governor of Idaho, and I have not authorized the lieutenant governor to act on my behalf," he said in a statement. "I will be rescinding and reversing any actions taken by the lieutenant governor when I return."

He added, "Attempting to deploy our National Guard for political grandstanding is an affront to the Idaho constitution and insults the men and women who have dedicated their life to serving our state and the country."..........

It's childish and muleheaded, but I get why a certain segment of the electorate likes politicians like Janice. Chica does everything she possibly can (even invents things just to see if they'll fly) every single time she gets the chance. If she could perform a coup by closing the border while the Gov is gone, she'd do it in a heartbeat.

Contrast this with Congressional Dems who roll over and show their bellies by reflex like bizarro-world armadillos.

I would love to know the number of illegal immigrants that choose to live in Idaho. I am going to guess it's in single digits.
