Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 17, 2019

Texas Rep. Will Hurd, the sole Republican representing a congressional district along the southern border, said more than 1,000 farmers in his state are at risk of having their land seized by the federal government to facilitate the construction of President Trump's long-promised wall. "In the great state of Texas, we care about a little thing called private property, and there's going to be over 1,000 ranchers and farmers potentially impacted if the government comes in and takes their land," Hurd said on "Face the Nation" Sunday.

BIG MISTAKE! -instead of losing 500 ft of property- they'll lose the whole property... Under Texas law, authorities can and often do seize property that was used to commit or facilitate any criminal conduct.

On April 17, 2014, the State of Texas seized the YFZ Ranch...

Five years ago, in April, a call came into a San Angelo domestic abuse hotline from someone identifying herself as "Sarah." She claimed to be a sixteen-year-old living on the Yearning for Zion Ranch, a community in Eldorado settled by the Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saints under the leadership of their prophet, Warren Jeffs. The fallout from the report was immense: law enforcement entered the property to search for "Sarah," who, they found out months later, didn't exist. The real caller was Rozita Swinton, a 33-year-old woman living in Colorado Springs. Though the call turned out to be a hoax, the details Swinton gave about widespread underage marriage and sexual abuse were anything but. Her call triggered a law enforcement raid on the property, and, eventually, a Department of Family and Protective Services order to remove 437 children and use Texas Asset Forfeiture laws to confiscate the 1,700 acre ranch.

Large or small, Texas local and state governments can take it all...

Which is funny considering Texas is where the majority of border without fences or barriers currently is.

A majority of the country doesn't want it nor does the state that will get most of it.

Based on my anecdotal evidence I can't help but notice that it's low skill white guys who have taken the bait on the wall.

It's not just the use of eminent domain. It's moving the de facto border up to two miles north of the de jure border, the cutting off of riparian rights, the use of gates (i.e. holes in the wall) to access farmland and homes, destruction of critical habitat among other reasons. My pet peeve is the ceding of territory over which two wars were fought.

Remember the border is a river in Texas. A wall would have to be some distance from the bank. The state or federal government can take real estate for public projects and have for more than a century. Think Fort Hood, Fort Bliss, and about a dozen air force bases that cover thousands of square miles collectively. Add the rail right of ways, which are in the hands of private companies, highways and roads and every school and university in the state. Funny, the most in favor of the wall in my neighborhood ?

It's not a Texas border and it's not a landowner's private border. It's the U.S. national border and only the Federal government has the responsibility for enforcing it. Texans can whine until the cows come home but it doesn't change that.

No sh--, Sherlock.

To have any chance to be effective, a border wall would have to take advantage of existing geographic features, for defense, and not be linear.

You have no clue whose land this wall will go through. If it isn't constructed to be a priori ineffective it will be constructed to piss the maximum number of Texas land owners off.

Hardly, 70% are corporate ranches.They are for the wall and the additional sensors that go with it hoping that stolen cattle will drop to zero.

There is one silver lining, Gray said. The state's ranchers hardly ever get word that cattle thieves crossed the Rio Grande with the stolen goods.

"It has happened, but the border is so secure now with so many monitors and Border Patrol and sensors at all type of devices, it doesn't happen much," he said.

Corporate ranches are well entrenched in the state capital. Little ranches will jump and scream but the real deal making will happen in a smoke filled back room.

Wow, the stupid and crazy is strong in this one:

California produces a sizable majority of many American fruits, vegetables, and nuts: 99 percent of artichokes, 99 percent of walnuts, 97 percent of kiwis, 97 percent of plums, 95 percent of celery, 95 percent of garlic, 89 percent of cauliflower, 71 percent of spinach, and 69 percent of carrots, 60 percent of broccoli and more than half of the US other produce (and the list goes on and on). Some of this is due to climate and soil. No other state, or even a combination of states, can match California's output per acre. Lemon yields in California, for example, are more than 50 percent higher than in Arizona. California spinach yield per acre is 60 percent higher than the national average. Without California, supply of all these products in the United States and abroad would dip, and in the first few years, a few might be nearly impossible to find. Orchard-based products in particular, such as nuts and some fruits, would take many years to spring back.
In fact, California produces over 50% of the fruits and vegetables consumed in the US, good thing these "criminals" are feeding half the US.

Slate: California grows all of our fruits and vegetables, what would we eat without the state?

I think one part solution to the water issue is mandating technology and research that saves water and punishing farmers that waste it. Also we should tax the hell out of fruits like almonds, which are an environmental disaster with no unique benefits to society. As for the hiring of illegals, I'm not personally opposed to it, but I'd rather see the employers in trouble than the illegals.
