As a kid I was told the story
of a young Indian Brave who, to prove his manhood, set out in the
wilderness to fend for his own, as it was by tribal law for all
young braves to do. This Brave was the son of the Chief and much was
expected of him. Weeks and weeks passed and he did not return.
It was decided by the chief, if he didn't return within a few months
to not only send a search party to find him, but also pass the word
to all surrounding camps and tribes that he was missing. Months turn
in to years and to the knowledge of all, he never did. The young
brave was called "Fallen Rock". Even today you can see signs along
the road, "Watch For Fallen Rock". Yes, you're right, this is a
groaner of a story, even if you've notice these signs on the road to
The signs today are not a
humorous story for it forewarns us to watch out for rock that have
fallen in to the road. I personally have dodged a few in my time in
Alderson. In the times that the American Indian ruled this
land, just having cell phones would have solved the problem of
finding Fallen Rock.
This bring me to a few signs
that our government have put up to warn us. One of the signs
warns visitors that "smuggling and illegal immigration may be
encountered in this area." Another says "travel not recommended" due
to "active drug and human smuggling" routes.
Though warning signs have been placed in certain areas of Arizona,
broad swaths of federal land are considered dangerous because of the
smuggling routes. -Fox News, see
Well, I guess that solves the
problem of drugs, illegals and human smuggling that come across our
southern borders daily. We have been warned. I wonder if that
includes terrorist? I guess if they're not on the sign, they must be
OK. With the easy access to the U. S. via this route, terrorist
wouldn't think of coming into our country this way, would they?
Maybe they already have!
If you think this is an asinine way
to secure our borders, perhaps you should be telling the House and
Senate members of your state.
Secure the border. Then we'll
work on immigration reform.
