My backyard

Not exactly mine but I have taken this road to go to the store when I feel like a drive. This is just to the south west of me. Sorry no photo bucket.

That looks to be fairly close to the area where one of our chapter members had his stolen Super Duty recovered:

Yeah pretty close, he's lucky he got his truck back, usually they wind up in Mexico and then used to smuggle drugs.

Amazing country...on BOTH sides of the Border no less.. This durned Illegal Immigrant problem is just that..a problem. You So. Cal. guys have born the brunt of this in so many ways...

Back in the eighties and nineties I was a carpenter making $18 to 30 an hour...these days...Contractors get 3 guys for that same money... Now, I'm not pointing fingers it aint a business owner's responsibility to check papers...but that don't mean they have to traitors to their own countrymen. Just last my a good friend was laid off..because point blank....they "found some 'guy's' to do the same work cheaper" What/who did he see doing his work...the illegal Mexicans HE'D trained as his helpers... And that, my friends, is where the rubber meets the road.

Couple that with who is really impacted the most. Poor, inner city Blacks. Er uh, Americans of African descent.

I guess I could go on and on...but I couldn't find work out in construction today for more than the SAME money I was making 16 years ago and that is NOT right. Everything is MORE, not less expensive.

Can't see how my old carpenter buddies are making it these days.. Me, I started my own business...completely divorced from construction.

I don't have much for smugglers at all. My wife and I came home from a trip a few years ago and found a stolen motorhome stuck on our property with a dead body inside, they didn't even bother to call EMS for her! Just left her laying inside for whoever to find her, which happened to be me.
