    Illegal immigration and other problems

    here's a thought, not original with me. Dig a moat all along the Mexican border. Use the dirt to build up the New orleans levees. Fill the moat with Florida alligators. Any other problems?

    Catching and hauling the gators might be an even bigger worry

    But, overall, a WAY better solution than anything I've heard coming out of Washington lately...

    Thumbs up

    There is a man that's thinking "outside the box"

    One addition though...Hire the Illegal Immigrants To Catch The Gators.

    After All...it IS a job that most Americans would not want to do.

    Isn't that what they're here for...in the first place?

    Improving the idea.

    Most of the idea is really quite good,
    Using illegal immigrants for food,
    But to make the practice really worthwhile,
    Replace the 'gator with a crocodile.

    Sorry, I just could not resist especially since one of my favorite poems is:

    The Purist

    I give you now Professor Twist,
    A conscientious scientist,
    Trustees exclaimed, "He never bungles!"
    And sent him off to distant jungles.
    Camped on a tropic riverside,
    One day he missed his loving bride.
    She had, the guide informed him later,
    Been eaten by an alligator.
    Professor Twist could not but smile.
    "You mean," he said, "a crocodile."

    -- Ogden Nash

    Watch out now. With Mr. Bush just finishing up a "tour" kissin' and huggin' on prez Fox and puttin' the ice cold Lone Star to 'em, no tellin' what was promised. One thing fer sure Mr. Fox didn't promise to keep his people from crossing the border. --------

    I STILL say the Chinese had the right idea: Build a BIG freakin' wall (none of this cheesey crap) and man the damned thing with armed guards ... with orders to DEFEND OUR BORDER! I don't care if it's our National Guard or the Southwestern Minutemen up on top as long as they've got the authority to act when necessary.
