    Guarding the U.S.-Mexico border, live from suburban New York - CNN.com


    Just ran across this. I thought it was pretty sweet. I'd be so pumped if I saw someone walk across the boarder and could take a screen shot and send to officials.

    what if it was taco, though? :(

    normally i'm all about border security - but having read what's going on for taco15, i'm more conflicted, now. he belongs here. he's here now and has been most of his life, and he's a better american than most of us. but because the system sucks, he might get shipped out - and i'd want him to be able to make it back in. :D

    they had an episode of MTV true life on this. it was pretty interesting. the redneck guy would just go out on the border and meet the border jumpers. he would send them back, and the border patrol would then capture them after they thought they got away ok.

    they would still just come back the next night or at a different time. it just delayed the inevitable.

    hehe that'd be kinda entertaining. i'd like to have that type of security system outside my house, too - for that matter. some bitch ass cat sprayed my front door last night; woulda been nice to slam a few markers its way.

    we're thinking of different things then.

    the fx show was a border jockie who got sent to live with an illegal family for 30 days.

    he hated everything about them at first, but grew to love them over the course of the 30 days

    yeah, i'm referring to some redneck guy who liked to go out in the fields in the middle of the night and watch for border crossers.

    he got all excited. he actually thought he was doing something for the good of the country. well, his first mistake was that he thought he was actually making a difference.
