Here is a thought
People all over are gathered around their computer screens. Some are even getting paid to watch the border. Yes I know it is volunteer but wait. They have their cell phones by their side. They wait, with anticipation. They see the border patrol, zoom in, scooting closer to the edge of their chairs, pick up their phones, & text message their alert. They are in instant touch, with the coyotes. Reporting the location of the border patrol.

Wow, sounds great. Hell, I'd volunteer a few hours of my time to sit and monitor the border. You can do that from any spot in the country, too. Too bad, we can hook up some paintball guns and control them via X-Box 360 LIVE and finally have our kids doing something constructive, when they sit playing those games ALL DAY!!

Have you reported anyone yet? The program was suppose to start a while back, at least that is what I thought. What is it like? Can you explain how it works? Do you see the Border Patrol go when you report? I wanted to sign up too. But don't think it is in this area yet.

I saw this on TV one night. I can't remember the program, but may have been Dobbs' show. I think and that's I think a guy in Nebraska is doing this. Have you clicked on the link? Shoot if it can be done all over the country, I'd putchase the biggest monitor just for the excitement!

YES! YES! YES!

All the while China is going into sensitive government computer systems here on a daily basis. As in NASA, military, national infrastructure hacks.

But yes, let's worry about the lawn cutters, since they pose far more risk. Just send more jobs to the East and move on. Nothing to see here...

If America has become this vapid and stupid; we deserve to fail.

Finally an excuse for the biggest TV $ can buy, I would get the internet hook up for TV's just to be a part of it. One with the very best, clearest picture. Do you know if there is one that allows you to freeze frame and somehow record a photo? TY for you comments. LOL

I know about enough to fill a thimble.....I think that area is best asked of Tim "what's his handle." I'd think if one had a large enough one, you could charge admission from your neighbors and friends. Shoot popcorn all around! Tim posts in the tavern and troll rehabilitation. Say, outdoor theaters may make a come back! lol

This one is up and running with 5 cams and soon to be motion sensors that will beep into your computer. Pretty cool stuff...

Interesting yes? I can't believe how time flies when I'm in TOPIX. I just listened to Lou Dobbs' show the second time with Nancy Grace in between.

Was that OBAMA you wrote? lol

They need to improve the picture quality. Just joined a while ago :D I have already sent them a memo LOL. I am sure they will send me a big T Y. I failed to mention Obama in my email to them.. geesh!(slapping head) I think outdoor theaters would be a big hit! Audience participation, cheerleaders, apple pie, popcorn. You've come up with a winner there Darlene. Going back to view the border
