This is a story long overdue. Dateline Austin, Texas, January 22, 2012: ground was broke today on a new border security project. This will entail digging a 2100 mile long trench 17 feet deep and 500 feet wide from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, Ca. The dirt from the massive trench will be trucked to New Orleans and used to raise the hundreds of miles of levees surrounding that city, which sets below sea level. Additionally, once the trench is filled with water as estimated 250,000 alligators will be relocated from Florida (where they have become a nuisance) to the 2,100 mile long moat. This massive project which will solve the border problem, the Florida alligator problem, and the levee problem of New Orleans is the brain child of a young 12 year old girl from the small town of Hot Coffee, Mississippi. President Herman Cain is awarding the young girl "The Presidential Medal of Freedom", the nations highest civilian honor, at a special White House ceremony this coming Monday. The ceremony will be attended by former presidents Bill Clinton, H.W. Bush, and G.W. Bush. Vice President Marco Rubio will also attend the event. Former president Barack H. Obama is currently vacationing in Kenya and will not attend. He had no comment when asked about the moat.
