It's amazing where you'll find beaver. No willows or other trees for them to eat, just tules and other vegetation, castor mounds everywhere.
I doubt the fur quality is very good, but I'm thinking of trapping them for their castor and selling the carcasses to the local taco wagons.

P.S. The "wall" does work, I talked to a couple of Border Patrol agents while parked here yesterday, they said they would apprehend up to three thousand illegals a month in this area until the wall went up. Now it's just a handful.

How could that wall stop anyone from climbing over with a grapnel hook and a rope?

It doesn't, but it slows them down long enough for the border patrol guys to get there. There are tons of sensors, the patrol guys are generally there or within sight in less than a minute.

that's a great idea!! While we are building walls we should go ahead and continue it up the east side of California too!

Like squeezing a balloon did you happen to ask the boarder patrol what they do with them when they catch them. Its called catch and release, job security.

You must not lock your doors, since someone could break in anyway. Probably leave your keys in your truck since it could get hotwired too. The principle is called “deterrent,” and it’s worked effectively for millennia.

Once you cross someone's property line or border illegally you have pretty much left any "respect" on the previous side.

My neighbors come on my property without permission once in a while to shovel my driveway if I'm gone,and I do the same.Like I said,I wouldn't live in a place where people had no respect for other peoples property.I don't want to live in fort Knox.
I know you guys down there like your gated communities.-That's not for me.

I suggest an elevated highway bridge. Charge tolls to pay for it. I would like to drive up or down it, once.

What you completely fail to understand, is that we don't want to live in a place where people have no respect for other people's property either and that the people invading our Southern border are that sort of people, proven by the fact they break into our country.
