I should not have to pay to visit any national parks. They belong to eveyone. When I visit Biscayne National Park, there is no admittence fee. It should be the same everywhere. Also, camping should be free on all public lands.

Remind me again when popular vote was ever a determining factor in the selection of the US President?


Remind me again with what that has to do with "half the population"....


quote where someone said "half the population", other than you.

He is putting the wishes of the half of the public who voted him into the office of POTUS ahead of those who wish to destroy him. When you look at it like that, it kind of sound different huh?


Unless the “public” and “population” are no longer synonymous.


Ah, I see the issue. Reading comprehension epic fail.


half of the public who voted him


Leaving words out to change context is a dick move. Don't be a dick.

Congress just needs to allocate that relatively small amount to a border wall which will end the shutdown. Problem solved. There is no reason not to build the wall other than Congress doesn’t want Teump to win.

In the meantime who cares if we have less Federsl Government. We don’t need them anyway.


Why would we give away $5B for something that will never be built?

post your proof that the wall will not be built. for someone who doesn't care, your pie hole seems widely open today.

Well without a comma the context is severely adulterated....

Are you saying:

-Half of the public (population)
-Half of the public that actually voted for Donald Trump
-Half of the public voted for Trump, and all who voted for Trump want the wall

Your syntax, and context, is severely lacking...

The proof is common sense.

The government isn't going to claim eminent domain over the entirety of the Southern border.

EVEN IF they tried to do such a thing the issue would be tied up in the courts for so long that Trump would no longer be President by the time it came to actually build the wall. It would be stopped with the next administration.

To get the wall you'd need both Republican and Democratic support spanning multiple decades so that the project could be seen to completion.

This isn't tough....

Thank you for the Blazing Saddles reference. This truly points out the current issue with our borders; only those who follow the rules will obey the gate!!

The rabid responses are an indication that the wall (once built) would be effective.

It's not like they care about the spending. Or else they'd be all over the fact that the US spends 135 billion a year on illegals.

They (the left, MSM, politicians) are afraid.

Nobody is scared of the wall.

Look, those who wanted the wall "tried" to get the funding and failed. The wall isn't being built, but there's always next time.

Just get a voting majority in the Senate, in the House, and have the Presidency and nobody can stop you from getting your wall!

You just effectively described the 2013 government shutdown, which was centered on the Dems demanding Obamacare be fully funded and shutting down the government until they got it.

Like all children he should learn that you can't always get what you want and put the needs of his country above his political desire.

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi's ears are tingling.

You and all your leftist ilk are afraid that the wall would be effective.

It's not about money. Haven't seen you or anyone else on the left get upset over the 135 billion spent every year on illegals.

Leftest ilk? Get out much?

Nobody wants the wall except for a vocal minority. It's not happening. No biggie, just get the votes and get the damn thing. Shouldn't be tough since the majority want it, right???

Well, there are still eminent domain cases tied up in the courts dating back to GWB's presidency, and that's only over a tiny tract of land compared to what the government would have to seize in order to construct a border wall. That's just ONE hurdle you'd have to jump.

The border wall won't happen. Sorry man.

In the annals of historical wrongness, you would hold a special seat. It would have handles.
