South Dakota Manufacturer builds surveillance trees, and Dusty says, ‘Cool’

Wouldn’t this be a fun Christmas tree to have? It could catch all the great moments when your grandchildren open their gifts (or their frowning faces when you give them crap). **Note: The family mentioned is NO relation, they spell their last name different.

“The system was designed to be able to get daytime and nighttime video of people as they are coming across the border, in real time, to a dispatch person that would then be able to dispatch certain patrol people to that area,” Taylor said. “It gives them a great way to see how many people are coming, be able to track them as they are going, and it can allow U.S. Customs and Border personnel (CBP) to know how many people to send. If there’s a potential issue or concern with that group coming across, then maybe it can help identify that prior to them getting here.”

Ironic, isn’t it? A family business in Yankton, South Dakota, that probably has immigrant heritage from Germany, Austria and Switzerland is building fake trees to stop immigrants. I won’t bring up that other famous German that thought this was also good idea.

It should go without saying, but it is the government, so I’ve got to ask: we are not using faux evergreen trees to provide surveillance at the southern border, are we?
Please tell me they have a ‘mesquite’ product line.

You relate security cameras on our border to prevent crime and make it safer for responding border patrol agents with the Holocaust? And the link is the family “probably” has ties to Germany or Austria? Woo-eee. 0 to crazy in record time.

I’m still not sure if Dusty is for the wall or against it, but at least we know he’s pro-tree.

( and Woodstock adds: “When it comes to the wall, he’s like Kerry, but when it comes to trees, he’s a true hugger”….)

Fluff, it is called ‘sarcasm’. Sorry if I shocked you with it here on my blog 🙂

This is how they want to disguise a lot of the 5g towers that will be all over town, no thanks to damn PTH.

How long is the warranty in tree rings? Trees are important for relieving oneself. Their bark is not worse than a police dog bite. Trees are Trump. It’s mourning wood for when he’s impeached.
