Anyone see the irony in that talking to people for this wall, is like talking TO a wall?

"Health insurance so people don't go broke from illness? Nope. Wasteful liberal spending!"

"A wall that won't help a damn thing? Get me my wallet!"

I've noted there's been no call for one across Canada. I wonder what the difference is between Candians and Mexicans.
snarky response: we're not that thrilled with what we see south of the border these days... maybe we *should* have a wall of our own!

real response: canadians aren't interested in sneaking into america for a better life, because ours is already decent enough (aside from our brutal winters). we're also culturally similar for the most part and we don't have a raging drug war going on along the USA-Canada Border...

I snuck into the US nine days ago. I'm still hiding out down here.

I didn't smuggle in any drugs. I'm not a terrorist, I'm not part of a criminal gang and I haven't raped any white girls yet.

In other words, you're like 95% of the folks entering from the southern border.

{EDIT: The percentage may be higher or lower. I suspect higher but I'm too lazy to do the math. Those of you who are obsessed about this can break out you calculator and use the Customs & Border Patrol stats provided in this link: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/cbp- ... statistics. It is interesting to note arrests have gone down sans Magical Wall]

So the 5% of border crossers who are drug smugglers, gangsters, terrorists, and rapists -- is that an insignificant number in your opinion?

That 5 percent are crossing through legal ports of entry. A wall won't stop them.

The fact remains that the vast majority came here legally and overstated their visas...

Humpty Trumpty wanted a wall.
Humpty Trumpty took a great fall.
And all Putin’s horses, and all Putin’s men -
Couldn’t put Trumpty together, again!

Humpty Trumpty whined for his wall.
Humpty Trumpty started to howl.
And all in the congress, and Mitch hiding out -
Made federal workers riot - and shout.

Humpty Trumpty failed at his wall.
But Humpty Trumpty still had his gaul.
He banged a few hookers, and watched his TV -
‘Til the next prez election, when Trump lost - bigley!

i speak from experience: when i got very sick last year, i ended up in the hospital, but thanks to my (admittedly high) taxes, i didn't go bankrupt due to medical bills. we also don't have as big of a gun violence problem as the united states, because of our very strict laws regarding guns.

Hmmmmm. Interesting. And are all or most of your countrymen broke? Living in grass huts? Can't afford anything?

It's a symbol of Trump's strength. He doesn't care about the wall as much as the idea he came up with all by himself, which his less than bright mob of followers may or may not think will work.

To the supremists it's a symbol of white power. To the lower class it's a symbol of sticking it to the Man. To Republican leadership it is a symbol of their power. To the Democrats it's a waste of money, yet no one is crying outraged at the 1.2 trillion dollars missing at the Pentagon.

Anyone with a third grade education can understand what the image below represents.
