It just keeps getting "stupider and stupider".

Last year I spent $7.45 on cigarettes. What is your point? :roll:

I thought it was clear enough. Americans spent more on their own fencing in one year than the cost of border fencing. Apparently, Americans think fencing works or they would not spend so much on it.
Do you need anything else explained to you? :)

I think when you sum the costs of steel, labour to built then construct the wall, plus the cost of buying people's land AND the law suits, divided by the scant handful of convicts, you'd be shocked. Better to address the opioid crisis than this non-crisis

I built my fence so I can walk around the house naked and not have my neighbors see me.

I bet you believed Obama when he promoted his healthcare plan by saying, "If you like your doctor, you can keep him and if you like your current healthcare plan you can keep it." Republicans were smart enough to know those were damn lies. And it only takes a little redneck common sense to see through all your socialist lies. Praise the Lord.

LOL as if you guys cared for truth at all... $top pretending, Mr. Orangine can easily beat all of Obamas lies through his 8 years as president and ~1-2 years of campaigning with a phone, a Twitter account on a weekend. Now a days, when reports talk about fact-checking trump... what they actually do is check which ones are true, because it is faster and easier than checking which ones are false :lol: .
Praise the extraterrestrials.
Dueling Border Speeches: Trump WON; Pelosi and Schumer LOST

If by winning you mean which one appeared be withdrawing from cocaine...
:roll: I can't believe you folks are still on about that. Why would Vladimir Putin be better served with a wall on the Mexican border?

How cute... Putin does not give a crap, he just wants chaos and someone he can control.

“Illegal immigration is insignificant.”
“We will destroy your white patriarchy through increased numbers of minorities.”

What is really ironic is Blacks believe this and no demographic projections show them benefitting.
All lies all the time.

It is not a fking competition. And then you act all surprised and indignated when people rightfully point out you are a dumb racist.

"National emergency" :lol: ? The number of people illegally crossing the border is far lower than it was a generation ago. The recent phenomenon of caravans of Central American migrants largely consists of people who present themselves to border officials and request asylum.

And despite repeated false claims by Trump officials that terrorists are infiltrating the country across the border, including by the thousands, no one in the modern era who committed a terrorist attack on domestic soil has turned out to have sneaked in via Mexico.

jimjam has concluded that the most viable way out of the Trump Shutdown mess would be an invasion of the Netherlands …………..

Welcome to "Donald In Wonderland" ……..

He does not care lol. He just wants to rail up his political supporters in preparation for Mullers Report. I think it is a calculated risk.

Why shouldn’t we build a fence? Please don’t give me that bullshit about $5 billion being a lot of money to our government.

Edit: Last year we spent...
$100 billion on sports.
$55 billion on bars and restaurants.
$7 billion on fencing.

LOL :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

American spent more on lawn. I guess we should instead build a large green lawn at the border! Maybe we could pay the Mexicans to keep it nice and cut, you know so that they can steal our jobs.

It is frightening that you do not see how stupid this really is. There is no logical comparison. It is childish and inane. What did I leave out?

Oh yea. We spent more money than that on international airports welcoming people in. Do you like that logic. It is stupid and inane too.

I am so fucking tired of the this idiotic wall and the abjectly stupid people who support it. Now Trump wants to use some imaginary emergency powers he and his toady Lindsey Graham think that he has. He will be slaughtered in the press. But I'm going to guess that Hindsite and OD will salute this move. Neither of them believe that the constitution applies to Trump.

The sooner he is impeached the better. It is absolutely clear that he sold out his country to the Russians. Neither Hindsite nor OD will care about that either. Despite overwhelming evidence that he did, and his staffers and appointees falling like tenpins and heading off to prison, they still think he is the second coming.

I hope they are trolling. The alternative would not speak well of them.

Anyone who believes Trump will be impeached is stupid.

Overwhelming evidence? I have yet to see any evidence.

I thought you were supposed to be smart.

Hilarious how Jim Acosta makes Trump’s point about the wall being effective while trying to prove the opposite. Totally unbelievable he could be so stupid. Well, maybe not. :)

Additionally, Americans spend about $4 billion dollars per year on ….. chewing gum. So, WTF, let's add $20 or $40 billion to the national debt to bail Fatso out of his self made mess. Makes perfect sense to me :lol: .

Fencing equals fencing.

CNN’s Jim Acosta mocked for accidentally proving that border walls work

Media watchdogs were quick to point out that the CNN reporter’s video helps prove Trump’s point that a wall or barrier along the Southern border could help prevent illegal border crossings.

“Jim Acosta just posted one of the biggest self owns ever,” social media strategist Caleb Hull responded. ‘He's walking along the border where there's a wall in place talking about how there's nothing that ‘resembles a national emergency situation’ and ‘there's no migrants trying to rush.’ That's because there's a wall, Jim.”

Alveda King: African American Leaders Unite to Support Trump's Wall

Some claim that building a wall is a “medieval solution” to a modern problem. The wheel is an ancient solution too. Nobody’s complaining about that. POTUS is on target. Walls do work; as in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, walls are still viable solutions.

As an African American voice for justice, a defender of the sanctity of life, and perhaps most importantly, a Christian evangelist, I stand with President Trump as he labors to build a wall. From my perspective, compassion trumps terror. Our prayers are needed more than ever. We must rally around the wall to avert crisis.

Having survived, and in many cases overcome tyranny, oppression and racism in America, we as African Americans are close to the heartbeat of justice and compassion. We are not color blind. Our hearts are touched by the plight of all children and their families – not just at the border, but here at home as well.

My goddaughter, Angela Stanton King, cofounder of the American King Foundation writes: “The process of draining the swamp, is a process of seeking genuine true justice, jubilee, pardon, and forgiveness. We’re going to continue to discover that there are some very thin lines between right, wrong, justice, and injustice. Meanwhile, we live in a world where security is necessary. The Wall plan is viable.”

Rev. Bill and Dr. Deborah Owens, Founders of CAAP write: “Christians have a responsibility to help those in need, including the undocumented immigrants at our southern border. At the same time, we must also respect the need to secure our borders and ensure the safety of all U.S. citizens. The African-American community has been gravely injured by unfettered illegal immigration, which has resulted in loss of jobs, loss of housing, and other economic hardship.”

Collectively, we stand with President Trump in the battle for the soul of America. I'm praying that POTUS builds the wall in the manner that Ezra and Nehemiah did in days of old.

I have a nice red rug in my apartment, I just made a video in my apartment showing how peaceful it is and how there are no vampires inside or trying to get inside. I guess we should ask the government to pay 5bill to put red rugs on everyone's apartments....
That Miniclip fails to illustrate the whole situation or even how the people in that area feels. Did you know that BOTH sides immediately to each side of that fence are actually inside the US? Did you know that just getting to touch that very fence already puts any immigrant within the US?

You should take your own advice.

I, on the other hand, was reporting real news in my post.
In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border.

In the other hand, when I was reporting in my post for the last 1 year I found 925,00 gnomes inside people that did not own red rugs, 730,500 wild minotaurs and 122,900 vampires. We desperately need the funding for those red rugs.

On Thursday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called for President Trump to use emergency powers to build the wall.

“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on Wall/Barrier funding – even if the government were to be reopened – virtually ends congressional path to fund Wall/Barrier,” Graham said. “Time for President Trump to use emergency powers to build Wall/Barrier,” Graham added.

Graham's decision to throw his support behind the president declaring migration at the southern border a national emergency follows remarks earlier this week when he told reporters that it should be the "last resort" and is not the "preferred route."

But negotiations led by Graham involving moderate GOP senators that would have paired an immigration fix with border wall funding unraveled on Thursday, with senators blaming an unwillingness by Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to reach an agreement.

Lindsey Graham carries has the credibility and seriousness of a horoscope and astrology woman reading tarot cards.

I hope they try this BS, open the gov shutdown and stop this charade. This will FURTHER expose them for what they really are. Fear mongering assholes that would take money away from where it is really needed (hurricane relief? wildfires? earthquake) and funnel it into something that is stupid. On the other hand, this will surely be challenged in courts and trump will be once again swiftly defeated by the same judges that he has appointed as it has been happening thus far.
He will surely drop another raging temper tantrum as a result, and we will all have some amusement reading his non-sensical tweets =).
