I just found out today that our farm in in direct line with the TX dot superhighway..the one that is slated to go from Mexico to Canada. Some people call it the United States By-Pass ...so that Mexico can get products directly to Canada...by passing the U.S. Mexico will build this highway (toll road) - so the jobs will be essentially theirs. From what I have heard, they will also be collecting the tolls. This is a project that has already been started. The government will take our land and give us "market value" for it. My first thought was - what kind of market value will my farm have when everyone knows the Government is going to take it away from me?...pennies on the dollar.

Here is the sight map that shows the highway going over our farm:

I am so upset about this, I feel like I want to be sick.
