Thread: Arizona Cattle Growers' Association border issues

  1. #1
    Being somewhat isolated from these border problems in Eagar [at 7000 feet above sea level and up in the mountains, we don't have illegal immigrants crossing through our cattle ranges], I often take for granted how good my family has it compared to other ranchers in this state. At a recent meeting of the ACGA we heard firsthand the horrible complaints of southern Arizona ranchers in terms of fences being cut, livestock being injured and sometimes stolen, and everything that wasn't secured in a locked storage shed being outright stolen from their property. One rancher told us about the multiple thousands of dollars he has lost to repair his fences only to have them torn down again the next evening.

    These costs will ultimately be passed on to the consumer. Whether you care about this or not, you will eventually pay for this in one way or another.

    I wonder if the ancient Romans along the border felt this way as their empire began to fall and the Barbarians began to flood into their country?

    Yes, yes. It is a little known fact that the invading barbarians traveled great distances to come pick fruit for $.15 (how many drachmas is that, I forget?). Thanks for highlighting that oft forgotten piece of history, 9's.

    Don't forget that the Barbarians also introduced tacos and burritos to Roman cuisine and significantly influenced kustom chariot design.

    Is our "empire" falling then?
    When I was a kid I was told "We do these things not because they're easy, but because they're hard"

    Now all I hear is " I won't do anything unless there's something in it for me"

    You never had an empire to lose. Except the odd bingo hall/movie theatre.
