So why do we need a wall?


#347

In their day they were quite effective.


#348

Many of them tried, they were turned away.


#349

Why would you even care? I certainly don’t care whether or not you are happy.


#350

Spikes can easily be covered with a simple piece of wood - been done. “Sophisticated technology”? The president says that’s just “meaningless bells and whistles”.

Maybe a steam powered catapult to shoot them back over?


#351

So it’s almost like they gathered into large groups to make it obvious they had no intention of entering illegally? Right? And everyone knew that? Right?

It’s almost like we are being lied to by the president and the administration about it, huh?


#352

The 5.7 billion requested would only supply an additional 200 miles of “wall”…this plan was poorly thought out and poorly executed.

I am surprised that so called conservatives would trust centgov to build a 2000 mile barrier across the southern border when there is no clear plan, let alone clear direction for such a massive project.

Best case scenario for Trumpers the wall starts to get built and it gets tied up in courts for decades, the whole thing does not make sense.


#353

Need a moat, with crocodiles!


#354

They all worked very well, particularly the Berlin wall.

The Maginot line and GWOC worked so well that the enemy had to circumvent them rather than breach them.

The Berlin Wall worked well enough to cut the flow of East Germans getting into Berlin by over 99%.


#355

I guess I’m a better person then you? I genuinely care about the happiness and well-being of all of my brothers and sisters in this great nation.


#356

No, they really weren’t.


#357

They gathered in masse to force their will. What they encountered was certainly unexpected. The actions Trump took mitigated the threat. It doesn’t negate the fact that it was very real.


#358

Why do we have police if people commit crimes anyway?


#359

Do you seriously doubt the effectiveness of the berlin wall in its day? Seriously?


#360

Fascinating. Lol


#361

False, they went to, and encountered exactly what they expected in terms of illegally crossing the border…


#362

For the clueless.


#363

Did you ask them?


#364

The effectiveness of the Berlin wall is due to the manned guard towers with visual observation of every inch…

Kind of like what we should do with surveillance, instead of an expensive wall, huh?


#365

So they could have been just as effective with no physical barrier of any kind? And you honestly believe that horsepucky?


#366

Surveillance alone is useless, we don’t have the manpower to control the border without physical deterrents and obstacles.

The plan for the “wall” includes electronic monitoring, surveillance, and a rapid reaction force to interdict illegals attempting to cross.
