;-D

I'm all for this idea (except change electrocute to electrify) and let's make it high enough to keep out the acid rain and pollution and deep enough to keep our water and hockey players in. !+)

Here is what that might look like:

The guy walks up to the fence. }:-)

He sees the new fence that has been put up. :-?

He decides to touch the fence to see how strong it is. }:-)

The fence shocks him. :-o

And makes him cry. :~(

Now he goes home to his family and they see what the happened. !+)

They ask him if he's going to take them all to America still. :-?

He says no. :-t

His kids start crying. :~(

They blow out their candles and go to bed. :-°

dude those are standard street signs in San Diego.
BTW San Diego has a huge fence between itself and Mexico, and it has done nothing to slow down the illegal immigration. Just food for thought

Those signs don't really scare me. There are huge elk out here that if you hit them they kick you to death through the windshield... I don't think those running people would do that type of damage

Yeah these are all over the place in SD/LA.

Most illegals are smuggled in. Not swimming across or hopping fences like people think.

"Illegal aliens continue to funnel directly into many of our local communities and adversely impact our way of life by overwhelming our schools, inundating our health care system and, most concerning, threatening our safety," said Hunter, who was working on the bill with Rep. Virgil Goode (news, bio, voting record), R-Va.


That isn't steriotypical or anything. ;-7 He might as well say that we shouldn't allow poor people to live in communities because a lot of people who "threaten our safety" come from ghettos. This is just a bad idea and seems like an attempt to divert attention from other problems. Something should be done at some point, but the cost to effect ratio is not a good one in this case.
