    HI FOLKS,
    I was watching tv this evening and enjoying the screams of my grand daughter (Katherine) and heard on modern marvels that we dredge 12,750,000 dump truck loades of slit from our rivers each year, By making sea walls in the gulf and depositing the rich slit we could add land mass as well add, grow lots of corn or other biofuels. Energy issues could be aided in that kind of crops. We could also add rock aggrate and rise new orleans.
    Any way it is a thought.:eek:oooh:

    Those 12 million loads have to come from somewhere... wouldn't we just be moving our present land mass rather than adding to it.?

    i agree with inky. seems that most mexican citizens want to be americans anyway. just buy the land, make it part of the US and tax them the same as we get taxed.
