I would have thought laws, never mind empathy stop people shooting one another not guns.

If that were so, there would be no criminals. Criminals violate laws by definition.


Whos paying for this alleged wall again, coz its not Mexico now is it???

Mexico will pay for it, in monies saved by not having them sent to Mexico. That was the idea all along. You really thought the Mexican government was going to cut us a check? Really?

Let's combine these responses, shall we?

That level of education and yet you think walls are the answer???

I would ask for a refund there mate, as just the engineering aspects alone should illuminate the shortcomings of nonsensical walls presenting an issue for any determined person.

Nah, I'm quite happy with my ability to realize that sometimes the most effective solution is the simplest one.

It's not a bad idea though... you might consider applying it.

By quoting victories of the 1600's you are just reinforcing the idea that a wall is archaic.

So are wheels. Got wheels on your car? Why? They're archaic! Get rid of them!


A group of farmers conquered the British empire with muskets. Since we conquered an empire with such low level technology why should we employ modern weapons in war today?

The British used muskets as well. I guess they were nice enough to keep the bombers and smart bombs at home.[/sarcasm]

You can do better. Next.

If only it was that simple.

If only.


Just a thought, but where will you get all that lovely Cocaine and Heroin from, with a big bad-arsed wall in place, if it's going to work so effectively, if not from or through Mexico?

If memory serves you don't have any Poppy or Coca plantations of your own.

You do realise what will happen when America can no longer ""self medicate"", she will inevitably have to wake up.

Personally, i predict a large run on the likes of Bath Salts and Spice should Trump actually get his wall and it did what it says on the tin.

The wall that can't possibly exist in the real world because 90% of the border is owned by private citizens who aren't particularly interested in hosting one? That kind of "realism?"

Doesn't Trump need to prove to the courts an actual emergency is occurring to officially declare a state of emergency?

Yes I do.
wheels have not been replaced with something better just yet.... since they are inside as well as outside of my car...

Oh And before you ask yes I do have walls in my house but we're not talking about dwellings we are talking about security which you say you are all for but insist on ineffective tools to procure it.

I dont know but it will go before the supreme court if he tries and then we will know.
Since the number of illegals is down significantly from other years and no need was found during times when there were higher numbers I doubt the supreme court would side with there being an actual emergency at this time.

And it will sure look like abuse of power for political gains.

Deaths/Sickness/Injuries from Drugs and Criminals coming across the southern border are at an all-time high.

DHS Secretary Nielsen showed the statistics to Congress last week.

SCOTUS would uphold the Administration's decision.

Could also lead to Spygate declassifications under the same National Emergency umbrella, depending on how broadly the emergency is defined by the Administration. Hopefully it's defined "loosely", like Mueller's witch-hunt was.

I had also thought that Conservative SC judges historically really disliked government land grabs as well, so in my mind it seemed unlikely they'd want to open that can of worms and do a 180 on their previous established position.

Don't you already have a war on drugs, hows that going?

About as well as the one being waged against death and sickness would be my best guess.

If Trump wants a wall let him pay for it personally, or better yet force him to come through on his promise that Mexico will foot the bill, leave the poor people and taxpayers the hell alone.

No wall, more bullcrap, bad Mexicans, evil Muslims, yadda yadda yadda!

Toys out the pram, the government is shutting down, Trumps away to his Mar-a-Lago estate for a tantrum and a sulk then a juice box and some string cheese. Then off to bed for a good nights rest, would be my guess. LoL

So, now the White House is pushing for $5.7 billion from Congress to build a “steel barrier”, instead of a concrete wall, on the US southern border.

With all the ranting among the right about the “Socialist/Communist” leftists...

Doesn’t it seem a bit odd that the current administration, champion of the rights American Values,

Now wants to build what is, literally, an

“Iron Curtain”?

That's what called "steel"ing your money for old rope.

Hoodwinked i tell you, and then some.

What's the bet Steel production in Mexico goes through the roof and you end up buying the necessaries from them for above average cost??? LoL

It doesn't have to have anything to do with Russia.
What does the trump foundation have to do with Russia?
What does campaign funds misappropriations have to do with Russia?

The list of crimes and inappropriate questionable behavior continues to grow.

You are simply mistaken.
Not uncommon as history shows.
Typical daily nothingburger with a side of partisan rancor.

The announcement tomorrow night will be interesting with a chance to be absolutely epic.

I predict a tantrum from a racist Muppet with sprinkled brown people hatred and a pinch hyperbole to be honest.

Pretty much rinse and repeat same crap slightly smaller nonsensical fence where you lot pay for it, if it does happen.

Interesting perspective from outside the usa.
You weren't the one with the balloon when he visited the uk were you?
Interesting it is the potus calling for TV time and not Congress. Perhaps they will slap together a bill to present him before the modern day fireside chat?

Well, i sure was not one of the neo-Nazi, Britain First, Yaxley Lennon crew, out causing trouble on the very, very, limited other side, that's a given.

I would have been the one atop the wind turbine with the sniper rifle at a distance.......me and about 65 million other poor souls.

If Trump wants a modern-day fireside chat send him over at Guy Fawkes and we will sort out 90% of your nations issues in one fell swoop.

JOKE by the way in case i offend anyone's political sensibilities.
