I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Minuteman Leader Will Build Border Fence

Demonstrations, tough talk and PR events have their place in addressing problems. What counts is getting something effective done. Take Gov. Janet Napolitano of Arizona for instance. She made a big deal of declaring a state of emergency because of the flood of illegal immigrants only to veto a bill that would use state resources to confront the problem. Contrast that with the Minuteman Civil Defense Corp.. They have had public demonstrations and stood at the border, but now they are making plans to help landowners along the border build the fence the government won't.

Simcox, whose civilian watch group opposes illegal immigration, said Wednesday he was sending an ultimatum to President Bush to deploy military reserves to the Arizona border by May 25 or his supporters will break ground for their own building project.

"We're going to show the federal government how easy it is to build these security fences, how inexpensively they can be built when built by private people and free enterprise," Simcox said.

While congress, the White House and state governors fiddle over the issue, the Minuteman are taking the lead. Once some success is evident and the politicians see the support the project receives they will run over each other to get in front of the parade. Our politicians like to think of themselves as leaders, don't be fooled, they are watching the direction the wind is blowing. When they realize the citizens are not going to wait for them they will get off their collective butt. If the government does not send National Guard troops to the border by Memorial Day, work on the fence will commence. I know where my next charitable donation is going.

It is said that good fences make good neighbors.
What's the employment situation like these days in re-united Germany? Are those East-German border guards out of work? Would that be like importing one ivasive species to control another invasive species?
Hadrian's wall and the Great Wall of China were never meant to be unbreachable, but rather to channel and disrupt cross-border traffic. A fence on our border will do the same, making control easier to acheive.
