Say Ronnie have you have any interaction with the minuteman project? Can you determine if they have had an impact (pos, or neg) on the border?


i don't think they have shown up yet. though i think they are as largely seen as a racist vigilante group hiding behind patriotism. there is a story about the ex-head of the texas minutemen quitting because the group wasover run with racists. there is some concern over them being a little too trigger happy, after a report surfaced that the minutemen threatened to shoot unarmed protesters in california. and the whole thing seems scarily similiar to the klan border watch of the 80's. even those who don't think thay have any racist ties see them as outsiders that have no idea of what it is like to live and work on the border. how they expect to help out border partol agents who do this everyday is a mystery. regardless of if they are racist or not, i don't think they will have much impact on anything in this town. they will show up and leave, and we will hardly notice.

whoa, that was off topic wasn't it.

Wow, what a thread so far!

And Robert, you DO have an interesting family. I have yet to read the book, but I will look out for the name of your father.

To myself: my mother became vegan too. It is so awesome!
When I became vegetarian she took that for a reason to be vegetarian too, since she was thinking about that before, but my grandma is a very demanding person! And so we were two against one :lol:

I became vegan about a year later and I told her about it. I was not at home, I've been in the states during that time and so she became vegan more or less by herself. She wanted to know what her daughter is doing, and after talking to me and reading a little in the w w w she was convinced herself! SO COOL!

I always thought I am one of the most blessed persons, because I have never met any vegan whose perants were vegan, but to have both of them going the same path... great gift bighead!

No one else in my family is vegan or vegetarian. :(

Not to put you on the spot Rob, but is your cattle rancher brother compassionate to the cows and steers ?
