Mercy sakes alive! You put an email link and a request for information on a site and before you know it, your email account is full and you spend several interesting hours clicking links and learning more than you can imagine about someone else. All public. All free. All easily accessed.

What to do?

Well I tell you what to do. You have a brilliant idea of starting a page full of information. A page created, “funded” so to speak, by readers. Some of it’s shocking, some of it’s just interesting, and some of it’s just plain bizarre. A service really, that’s what it is.

A scandal, of sorts, involving the infamous and much-beloved Mrs. G. Mrs. G writes a fabulous accounting of the events and, brilliantly, adds her own humor in the process. I actually knew nothing about this but was shocked, most of all, to learn that PW pays quite well for her guest posts. I admit that I’m dying to know how much! Seems PW threw her friend under the bus to avoid “offending” her audience. Huh, choosing your audience over doing the right thing? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Tulsa World had an article about the family lead foot.

Federal BLM contracts are public information, did you know that? I didn’t either. They’re a very interesting read. Drummond Land & Cattle received $1.5 million in 2008 as a BLM holding facility. That’s not the only one though. They sure do get a lot of money from the government!

Goodness, there’s even more money from the government! Notice the top recipient is Drummond Land & Cattle but just for kicks, keep clicking next because personal names are in there too. Just click around, that site is fascinating! There are a LOT of Drummonds around there, for sure.

They even list the subsidies by crop and here’s just the wheat. I’m sure one could occupy oneself for hours by going through each crop for each Drummond holding for each farm in each county. My fingers are exhuasted just thinking about it!

Oops, don’t forget the “southern farm” or “second farm” or “weekend farm” or whatever the hell they call it. It’s down in Jefferson County and my, my look who’s among the top government subsidy recipient down there?

This gal was a guest at the Lodge and she wrote about it once and then twice.

Have you ever played the game Bullshit? Well this lady apparently has!

Here’s a little firecracker gal! She lives near the Drummond Ranch and is quite vocal about her feelings about them. Damn, I’d love to talk with her, wouldn’t you? Props to anyone who can get her name and phone number or email. How assinine is it that PW won a “Lifetime Achievement Award”? Seriously?

A BlogHer deal that left a bad taste in some mouths.

This blogger wrote her an open letter.

I’ll keep updating as I receive more.

Watched the videos, thanks for the link, I have wanted to see it after reading so many comments. To me the husband just seems embarrassed and she seems out of her element.

Just the hoi polloi with money and no idea how to spend it. I have not seen one thing so far that made me sit up and take notice. I did read some of the old stuff and it was entertaining.

If it were me and I wanted to put pictures of my shoes and boots on a blog I would have had fabulous footwear and a different pair for each shot. But that is just me. I just don’t get the impression she is confident or even comfortable with this “Ree” person and that is sad. It would be ghastly to live your life as a weak apology for who you really are. However, maybe that is really who she is, a woman with little talent in the areas she pursues and no confidence in who she could be. Sad.

You mention that the Drummonds make millions from the government. One of the programs they get money is for having wild horses on their land. PW has in the past mentioned this on her blog, it was no secret. She didn’t mention how much they were paid, but as you pointed out it is easy enough to find out.
When you analyse the numbers, the government pays them $1,30/horse/day. As they have 2,200 wild horses on their land it comes out to $1.04 million per year. That is the revenue, not the profit on this venture. They have costs associated to taking care of each horse that include feed, land (approx 7 acres to each horse), and their own time in feeding the horses in the winter. They conclude they make about 10% profit on the venture so about $100,000. Or roughly a profit of $45/horse per year. Whether or not it makes sense to have a government funded program to keep these horses alive is certainly another topic for debate. If this program didn’t exist the horses would have to be culled. I just want to point out that yes the government pays them millions, but it isn’t like they do nothing for it and the money just rolls in. Here an article to source some of my figures:
Maybe saving wild horses is not the right use for this money, but it isn’t like the Drummonds are stealing this money from the taxpayers. The taxpayer’s money are keeping this little piece of American heritage (the wild Mustang) alive. And of course making the Drummonds money too – not arguing that. I think there are people out there trying to come up with a not-for-profit scheme, but keeping horses alive is very expensive and it seems like the right answer isn’t out there yet.

I addressed this I don’t think the Drummonds are “stealing from the taxpayers” but I do think they sort of neglect to mention the MILLIONS they receive. I understand they have expenses – everyone does. The reason this keeps coming up is because so often her rabid fans get SOOOO freaked out when anyone mentions that they’re millionaires.

there’s speculation that Ladd grazes those horses on fields he’s earning a subsidy for – although I don’t know that for sure.

Ree-isms at their best….

“I love not having to whip out annoying euphemisms like “Developmentally Disabled” or “Mentally Challenged” or “Intellectually Delayed.” As a blood relative of a retarded person, I’m automatically exempt. I get to say retarded. Retarded.” ~Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman

“…I have to admit, I sometimes like using the “r” word just to watch people squirm. Sometimes when I’m feeling particularly ornery, if someone in a conversation casually says, “retard” or “retarded”, I put on a dejected face and say, “Um, my brother is retarded. I don’t appreciate that.” I can usually last about 3.2 seconds through the look of terror on their face before I burst out laughing.” ~Ree Drummond, The Pioneer woman
