    This thread will be for anything regarding The Wall during the next 4/8 years.




    I will start the thread about the amazingly bigly bestest Wall with this:

    Don't care what your politics are in regards to immigration, the wall is an expensive, dumb, and ineffective solution.

    The only advantage I can see is that it would filter out anyone who was incapable of using a ladder, shovel, plasma cutter or other blue collar working tools. Not to mention those capable of flying, driving or walking into the country with appropriate identification. In other words it would only let in the perfect illegal workers.

    So you're saying the wall is merely a skill oriented admittance test ?

    Last estimate I heard was $21B. That's 21 x $1,000,000,000, or ~$70 per person to build something that is very realistically a physical impossibility and will have no/negligible impact on the problem it's trying to solve.

    On the plus side, maybe we can get free labor and glue this thing together with the pre-cum of all those who spring pants boners every time the wall is mentioned.

    in 2016, a Breitbart writer called for flying drones with lasers to patrol the border and shoot (er, 'stun) those attempting to cross the border illegally.

    Once all the construction workers become farm hands (after we deport all the illegals) we will need to hire some new illegals to build the wall. :rofl:

    I, for one, look forward to the great advances this will inevitably create in catapult and trebuchet technology.

    The wall is also a distractiinary battle flag to rally supporters who want to blame their problems on immigrants instead of addressing the real problems.

    Just wait...the next wall goes up to keep you, Mmike and all the other poutine eating, beer swilling puck chasing Celine Dion listening Canuckleheads out of Gawds™ country...making 'murikkka grate agin all up in here boy!

    (Can you get me in before he builds? I love beer, hockey, bikes and the Tragically Hip...not to mention Pamela Anderson. And I am painfully polite at times.)

    If this is true, why doesn't he just front the money personally?

    Finally, I'll be able to get one of those fruit-picking jobs I've been dreaming of.

    So how's everyone's vege garden planning and fruit tree planting going? :)
    I assume you're doing that as fresh fruit and vege is about to get a whole lot more expensive for you this year. ;)
