  1. Trump is poised to steal relief money from Puerto Rico to pay for his useless wall. So, the Mexicans won't pay for it, the Puerto Ricans will. What the hell, they're all the same, right?

  2. Jim Acosta actually proved the wall does work, But what the heck the dems might need the money for another bridge to nowhere. Right?

  3. The wall works, for about 10-15 minutes. All you need is a hacksaw to get through it. It will do nothing to stop the flow of illegal drugs, or solve the real humanitarian crisis, which Trump created. The money Trump will take to build it comes from disaster relief for American citizens, who are mostly people of color. This comes as no surprise to most. Trump's "Wall to Nowhere" comes at the expense of AMERICANS. The fact that he is willing to shut down the Federal Government, and starve workers, is indicative of his lack of conscience and decency. Americans are better than this. Well, at least most of us are.

  4. Few people here in Vermont have ever seen the Mexican border, much less how desolate much of it is. Such unprotected, heavily used, entry points are an open invitation for smuggling and illegal immigration.

    Understand, millions of Mexican citizens with passports are welcomed to visit, shop, work (H2A visa), and enroll in our universities. Exactly the same as our Canadian neighbors. Those entering illegally do so because they can not secure a passport or have been previously deported. Once here, they can not legitimately obtain a social security number for employment. Such is a major factor in identity theft.

    The wall has a cost of $5.7 Billion, out of a budget of, $4.407 Trillion. For perspective, that's $57 out of, $44,707. With consideration of the illegal immigration financial burden, becomes money very well spent. Say what you want about Trump. Perhaps above all else, he has irrefutably proven exceptional, financial judgement. Something career politicians like Pelosi and Schumer have not.

    BUILD THE WALL! DO IT NOW!
    MAGA

    1. I've seen the Mexico/US border. Much of it IS truly isolated, which is why most of the drugs flow through established ports of entry, hidden in cars and luggage. The National Geographic Channel has a regular program about it. Illegal border crossings are at their lowest point in decades, and are decreasing every year. There is no flood of criminals and terrrorists coming across our southern border. The border wall is nothing more than a political stunt, with no basis in reality. The money would be better spent on better border security at established ports of entry, Coast Guard personnel, and technology that can monitor isolated border areas. Building a wall that anyone can climb over, dig under, or cut through with a saw from Home Depot, is ridiculous. Shutting down the government to get something useless is harmful to the national security that Trump SAYS he cares about. This is nuts, and most people know it.

  5. This WALL topic is a big deception from the REAL news of the day, TRUMP AND RUSSIA.
    Walls south won't work, the great white north is just as vulnerable to drug traffic. Like Aug. 24 2016.."A man caught smuggling nearly 200 pounds of anti-anxiety pills (Xanax) across the Canadian border has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison"

    ReplyDelete
  6. RE: "the great white north is just as vulnerable to drug traffic."

    Not true. Canada has a very effective customs dept, vs. Mexico's corrupt agencies effectiveness. The other issue is, most all land along the Canadian border is privately owned. Anyone crossing is under redundant scrutiny of land owners, local police, state police and Border patrol. The Mexican border is largely BLM lands with no oversight.

We don't need any facts from snowflake liberals and their "Faux News" with their scientists and math and stuff like that. I take Trump's word, "Mexico will pay for the Wall" (you know, we all chanted it!) and that is why we have to stand by him for the Government shutdown.

  10. Not to worry. Rocky and Bullwinkle anyways foil Boris and Natasha's plans. Don't come to Vermont there WH, we have plenty of those two good guys.

  11. I was wondering how far into the Trump presidency we would get before the Bullwinkle references started. Was it PC, or lack of cartoon knowlege that caused it to take two years?

    ReplyDelete
  12. So, as Bullwinkle used to say: “Eenie, meanie, chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak"
    1) Trump is good ole buddies with Russia
    2) He rids himself of those people with top positions in the WH.
    3) Replaces them with "Acting" personal. "Likes it that way"
    4) Constantly Lies.
    5) Shuts the government down to weaking it.
    6) Divides the country and has people who where once friends become enemy's.
    7) Plans to have the Military work for HIM to build a wall.
    8) Sounds like the spirit of a Dictator.

  13. Border patrol just discovered a tunnel going from Mexico to the U.S. at Nogales, AZ. Boy, those walls really work!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Da those tunnels need to be walled off too. All the reason to create another branch of the military, the mole division.

      Delete
    2. Yes, start digging and when you are 10 feet down dig for 1600 feet and take a left. Keep digging for 1600 feet and take a left. Do that again and take another left digging 1600 feet. And you are there ! If you put a mirror on each corner and when you are finished digging look into the first mirror and you will see a Republican.

      Delete
    3. Nogales is a very densely populated city on both sides of the border. (Sought out donkey shows there.) Tunnel construction from within buildings is difficult to detect. The proposed wall is to address remote, easily traveled areas. Hiking across open desert with shovels and pick axes like seven dwarfs, then laboring for days to discreetly dig a tunnel is absurd, nor has it been done.

      Build the wall.
      Do it now.

      Delete
    4. The reasons Trump supporters give for building the wall are exactly the reasons why it is unnecessary. It's just plain EASIER to get drugs through established points of entry, and tunnels in populated areas. Smugglers don't use remote, rugged areas, BECAUSE they are remote, and rugged! You may not get it, but we do!

    5. @11:08 Your display of profound ignorance knows no limit. As someone with first hand experience encountering illegal immigrants while off-roading in the Sonoran desert, you couldn't be more wrong.

    6. Spare me, 11:53. Why should I, or anyone else, believe a word you or your "president" say? How did you know they were illegal? Did they just "look" illegal to you? I've been to the Mexican border. No one in their right mind would try to bring coke, heroin, or fentanyl over that terrain, especially on foot. Drugs have a nasty habit of melting in high heat; all you'd end up with is a drug-soaked backpack attached to a dead drug mule, in the middle of nowhere. As your source states, MIGRANTS DIE OUT THERE. You remind me of my right-wing uncle, who SWORE he saw a welfare queen buying steak with food stamps, and driving off in a Cadillac. He couldn't remember what day it happened, the color of the car, etc. He finally had to admit he only heard it on talk radio. You have no more credibility than him.

    Maybe he's generated this crisis to take focus off the revelations that are indicating he's a Russian agent... Manafort seems to have been posted by them to handle his campaign, there are now 100 known contacts with them by him and his staff, and Jared's attempt to set up a back channel communication system doesn't seem so innocent anymore.

      Perhaps, but presidents generally need to rouse their voting base. If this crisis doesn't work, expect another one. Maybe a war; for example, plans were requested and prepared for an attack on Iran.

  19. Signage I have seen first hand placed during the previous administration. Our perpetual, libtard trolls have no comprehension how dangerous an open border with Mexico is to those living living nearby. But as mentioned, such profoundly selfish libtards only want to feel good about themselves and to hell with everyone else.

    1. Oh, so now you're building the wall out of compassion? I call B.S. on that (and not Bachelor of Science, either.) You've based your entire concept of your own worth on forcing us to build the wall. You will feel worthless if you don't get it, because you suffer from concrete thinking, grandiosity, and low self-esteem. You respond to facts that threaten your delusions by putting others on the defensive through degrading, diverting attention, and lying by omission. You don't care one single damn about migrants, dead or alive. You just use them to further your own selfish ambitions, because you also suffer from ownership attitude, which means you view all people as objects to possess and control. In short, you have the mind of a common criminal. Every post you make reveals your mentality, at least to an educated professional. That's the real value of an education; the wisdom to see though people like you.

Bush's approval rating going below 40%, or a Republican getting caught doing something sleazy or corrupt. Fox can give ANY Republican President a 40% approval rating, because 40% of Americans get their news exclusively from Fox. They're a propaganda network, pure and simple.
