The drug trafficking has gotten so bad in South Texas the ranchers are taking matters into their own hands.
I was talking to some locals today and one was carrying some heavy artillery on the front seat. When asked why he said he was going to the border area near Zapata Texas and that the owner of the #### ranch had hired mercenaries to eradicate the traffickers. I searched and found the ranch then called but the owner flatly denied the story, possibly being conspiracy to commit murder I can understand why he “knew nothing”. I wanted to get some quotes from the persons involved but no such luck. He did say there were traffickers.
I figure where theres smoke theres pot. They will have to save My Pulitzer for another day.
I stopped at a hardware store here and the manager was unpacking boxes of reloading powder and hulls by the tens of thousands in all the popular configurations. Theres enough shit down here to redo the second world wo a couple times over. An amicable solution seems highly unlikely now seeing that jack-boots are all the rage now for un-manly footwear.
