It was supposed to be 14 feet high and topped with razor wire. It was also supposed to send a message to Washington that if the government wouldn’t seal off the southern border, volunteers could.
One farmer interviewed on CNN was just glad it was keeping his cattle fenced in. I filed this under humor because the Minutemen, while completely repugnant to me (I think they are 100% motivated by racism), never cease to make me laugh.
Mexican cattle come into our country without documentation, eat our grass, drink our water, and what do they contribute in return? Methane. And they don’t even speak English!
RSA: Don’t even get me started on the number of aborted cow fetuses who could be contributing to the enjoyment of BBQ and milk in this country!
I’m rolling off my chair here, this is Wall-to-Wall Comedy Gold.
Oh noes! Not the Gauntlet of Deterrent! Does it come with a Cloak of Unseeing and a Sword of Oblivion?
And please say I’m not the only one who thinks this dude’s name sounds like a sex toy available through 2nd Life.
Quick! Get that man a military contract!
Or a large Evangelical Church!
I need to get out more, I’m finding way too many layers o’ amusement in this story
We’re all waiting for an explanation, “Mr. Simcox.” [Taps foot]
Looks like the most productive act would be to get an IRS audit on this guy…what do you want to bet that 99% of that “professional services” money ended up in his pocket?
Just another con man fleecing the rubes….it used to be the pea-under-the-shell games, now it’s a “double-layered gauntlet of deterrrent.”
Can’t think of a better bunch of ijdits to use as marks.
Ha! Don’t you realize that with a few lucky casts Simcox will be able to level-up the Gauntlet of Deterrent so that it will even resist the Wirecutters of Doom?
Beware! For the Wirecutters of Doom, it is prophesied, will be rendered powerless, covered by the great Paper of … Covering.
Those cows could be smuggling in illegals is hollowed out stomachs.
Or rather crushed by the awesome Rock of … Crushing, which will in turn, you know… Oh lookz, it’s Ron Paul!
Wait, I’m confused…over at B4B, they’re talking about how the border fence is working. In much the same language that they use to talk about how the surge is working.
Oh, I get it. It’s just one of the many Bushbot MadLibs–this one is the “________ is working!” page.
Funny how money raised by these crackpot, black helicopter, militia group leaders keeps on getting lost. Simcox was implicated in the same sort of fraud when he was part of the militia movement and many of the other leaders of the various militias and other anti-government (Income Tax is Illegal!!!) groups also got nailed for this stuff.
Who knew such concerned citizens would also turn out to be such unscrupulous cheats. What will we tell the children?
(Also, I have to question the wisdom of bilking heavily armed, angry, conspiracy minded followers out of their money. Seems like an awfully dangerous group to target with Ponzi schemes.)
If an Illegal Alien casts the T-shirt of Eternity over the top wire of the Gauntlet of Deterrent, the Gauntlet immediately transforms into the Stairway to Heaven.
I’ll take that bet. I’ll bet it ended up in the jockstraps of strippers at the local S&M bar, or in the cash register at Wetsuits-R-Us.
Hmmm…”Simcox”…as in “Simulated Cock”, as in “Dildo”. OK, now the name fits.
Be sure to wear your “Gauntlet of Deterrent” when you’re around this guy.
Hey, if you have 60 Minutemen you’ve got a song title.
Or when beating off the GOP.
I bleached my eyes before I re-read that sentence.
Always a risky proposition even with protection. It’s better just to stay away from those pricks.
i’d be real careful tapping your foot in the presence of a republican named ‘simcox’.
Because CNN is Teh Evil Media…and…and…all of his leiutenants, associates, friends, investment dealers, helpers, money collecters, enforcers, builders, ex-wives, former hookers, and buisness partners are all Teh Evil Liberals….
God damn, what are the odds that all of those Go Liberal on ya all at once? Poor guy.
I wish I’d thought of this scam. I could use some ready cash.
I cast “Gauntlet of Deterrent”…at the darkness!
Professional. They went to TJ and got some hookers.
a fool and his money…
conservatives fooled by one of their leaders? You don’t say!
he’s got a great future as a GOP politician… or a televangelist.
If the cops don’t get him sooner rather than later, yeah.
Sad thing is, you could still get away with it. Would it be wrong to sell electronic “Illegal Immigrant Detection Devices” to the rubes?
