Hoo, Boy...When the Black Rider of Famine among the Four Horseman arrives....will there really, really be enough food for the illegals and for welfare and for whomever else is starving and wants more?

Political rhetoric and philosophy is fine, long as everyone is getting their four squares a day.

But when the Four Horseman take to stampeding, reality trumps rhetoric and philosophy because it hurts to starve to death.

The first Id heard of this was 2 yrs ago. A friend of ours who is a life long resident of Southern Ca and her neighbors have a very large community garden. Produce was being stolen nightly and they decided to video and see what critter was taking the stuff since all of their anti-animal thief stuff hadnt helped. They discovered it was people stealing the produce... and not just homeless.... and taking the stuff before it was even ripe. The one guy they caught was a documented worker but said he was sending all his money to his family in Mexico and had none left to pay or food. They put up surveillance cameras and etc.. and put a table out in front of the new fence with canned food and etc with a sign saying "dont steal,we will share." I guess hoping the folks would at least allow the veggies to ripen and not damage the garden.

Unfortunately they not only took the cans, but stole the vegetables and trampled the garden.

If anyone thinks a garden will be safe when this food issue gets worse, theyre delusional. If you spend good money on heirloom seeds and soil etc.. you best spend plenty on security of your garden as well and keep placement of it for security reasons in mind. Civilized folks will share with those that need food or are hungry, but from what I see, most of the thieves arent concerned with being civilized or giving a damn about you or you trying to feed your own family.

more valuable ??????? are you serious ???????????

dont you mean , devoid of serial numbers , devoid of tracker trasponders , subject to minimal security , easier to sell on [ ie set up a stall at a car boot sale / farmers market etc with 100 boxes of tomatoes - and no one will bat an eyelid and they will sell - set up a stall with BNIB flat screen TVs and people will get suspicios ]

come on you mean easier - not more valuable , a single trailer of hi-end consumer electronics can have a retail value of > 1.5 million GBP - even fencing at at 20% of list price - that nets you more than the total value of you 6 trailers of produce

the difference is that the trailer of electronics is tracked in real time - and has multiple theft detection / recovery systems , produce trucks are lucky if they have any theft tracking on the haulage tractor

Just another bit of proof that those from south of the border are a virtual "swarm of locusts".. sorry and sad but true..

I lived in Ford county, Illinois for years, and my mother still does.. the "immigrants" (nothing more than marauding vikings in the dark ages against the Irish and Scottish, just less violent approach) have ruined the wage of factory workers and those scraping by in farming..

who cares about "their just looking for a better life" crap.. its at the expense of our American looking for a better life..guaranteed this theft was by the mexican mafia..

This is just a start. I can imagine food pantries, grocery stores getting robbed next.

Welcome to America, 2011.

If you raise sheep for food, wild dogs will show up. Just another reason the Second Amendment is soooooo very important in providing your family with food.

Too many welfare liberal socialists would spend their time stealing cartons of cigarettes out of a store.....not thinking about food.

Oh, yeah. And Mogan David 20 20 and some Night Train Malt Liquor.

You can't feed a family on cheap wine or smokes.
You also can't feed them on failed government promises.

You can feed them by working, saving, stocking up, and thinking more than the government wants you to think.

If they put a warning label on a can of Soylent Green, like they put warning labels on packages of cigarettes, people would still eat the cans of Soylent Green. Then they'd ask for Obamacare to give them gratis a transplanted heart and lungs.
