Trump Debt/Deficit


#131

Illegal immigrants may not, but Coyotes do.


#132

Also, its amusing that you only made a half-assed attempt to refute 1/3rd of my examples of why a wall is worthless in this case


#133

Roadblock as in a temporary measure until other means of entry are found. 150+ tunnels that we know of have been found along the walled US/Mexico border. The wall wouldn’t stop those. The manpower needed to monitor a 2,000 mile wall for tunnels and respond to breaches would be incredible. Sea and air routes would not be affected.

The Vatican wall, built in the 9th century, is 2 miles long. That’s 1/1000th the length of the US/Mexican border and was constructed before gunpowder, electricity, and heavy machinery. If you want to infer effectiveness on a wall made a millennia before the modern flush toilet, that’s all you.


#134

Great…let’s confiscate the planes, sell them and pay for the wall. Then…Mexico paid for it.


#135

I apologize that I could only go waste deep down your rabbit-hole.


#136

Good luck with that…


#137

Thank you my friend.


#138

I’m sorry you feel reality is a rabbit hole. That does explain your stubborn devotion to such an outdated and ineffectual “solution” though.


#139

…your “ineffectual” is really inaffactual. Walls work…that’s why there are so many walls and fences right outside your window.


#140

Walls work for the specific circumstances. The southern border does not meet those circumstances.


#141

Trump is just really bad with money. I bet his dad knew it.


#142

anyone that blows money on stupid stuff like gold plated toilets really shouldn’t be given a check book.


#143

Let’s say a guy in Israel is running to be Prime Minister but Israeli banks won’t lend him money due to him screwing them over and over.

Should the Israeli people elect him?


#144

The bold is patently false. Not only will $5.7B not construct near enough barrier/fencing to even make a dent in border crossings, but additionally, border crossings are not even the majority reason for illegal immigrants being in the country illegally. Why make such demonstrably false claims like this?


#145

Maybe the government can contact one of those debt forgiveness agencies I hear on the radio and TV once in a while.

Uncle Sam can tell the American people “Before I contacted Debt Forgiveness, I owed 21 Trillion dollars. With Debt Forgiveness, I was able reduce down my debt to a mere 2 thousand dollars. Thanks Debt Forgiveness!”


#146

Yeah…what does the border patrol know who says it’s absolutely necessary.


#147

“The report was based on internal Customs and Border Protection documents from the 2017 fiscal year. It concluded that less than one half of 1 percent of the agents’ suggestions to secure the Southwest border mentioned the need for a wall.”

Yep…sounds like they REALLY think that it is absolutely necessary…


#148

Less than 1 out of every 200 agents even made mention of a wall as a possible suggestion to help secure the border.

Yep…sounds like the definitely feel its necessary.


#149

Oh, but that 1 guy will be trotted out by the administration as much as possible!


#150

Exactly right.
