I have seen no one say that. Can you point to an example - or would you rather just say, "Ooops, 'scuse me"?

Call the managers morons if you want, but for the most part they have been very effective,  and they have gotten their way.


Only because we allow them to lie without consequence. Restore the Fairness Doctrine, which had penalties for lying in the media and calling it news, and we can remove the Republican poison from our system. The border wall was just a way to rev up the lofo's - it's ANOTHER GOPer dog whistle letting their base know they intend to do as much harm as possible to poor brown people who want to become Americans.


The Russian "division squads" have been so effective that now having national borders is called racism.


Has this country became so stupid to think that only walls can delineate a national border?

Agreed. And physical barriers (fencing, wall, spiked thing) are key elements.


 


So since fencing was included, why didn't trump accept it?


Since your needle seems to be stuck, I'll just say ditto.

Border security is a specific national issue - not a factor for Putin or anyone else.


The "Wall" isn't needed for border security. The wall is a distraction from trump giving away our country to Putin and the Russians. If not, Why didn't he get the wall funded by Congress last year while the Republicans had control of the House and the Senate? The "Wall" is bait for trump supporters.  The majority of Americans want no wall.


Well, the President says we need increased physical barriers. The Dems used to say that until the President started to say it. No Putin in that.


Try to keep up and stay better informed. The Democrats offered funding for border security including "physical barriers". It was refused my McConnell because trump will sign nothing not including his "wall".  Yep, the "wall" is a distraction from trump giving our country away to Putin and the Russians.

 I have no idea, I was not present at the discussions. This is a squabble between the President and the Dem leadership. Throwing Putin in is like the past idea of putting "alt-right" into every discussion.

the wall talk is to distract from Trumps many, many problems. Mueller is closing in and he knows it.

Securing our borders is a job of the President. Mueller is a "Resistance" distraction.


Investigating trump's elections officials for conspiring with the Russians to influence our elections is Mueller's job.  The "Wall" is used by the "Resistance to Justice" as a distraction. Mueller is getting closer to trump.


Once again - Securing our borders is a job of the President. Mueller is a "Resistance" distraction.

 

Yes, a distraction that has to be dealt with but none the less a distraction from border security.

If we have them, we have to secure them.


We Have 4 Borders That I Know Of..........................

 

Where are the Cries for a Wall between Canada & the USA

 

Where are the Cries to Wall off the East and West Coasts

 

We Have More than one Border - shouldn't we have to Secure them ALL?

 

Now of course one of the Anticipated Responses - is going to be - well - we don't have any problems with our other 3 Borders

 

Baloney - We have Immigration Policy Problems not Barrier Problems

 

 


Don't forget about Alaska and Hawaii.

 

And what about American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands? Don't they need walls, too? 😉


There are people  "swimming the river" in the instance under discussion. I have heard of no one "swimming the Pacific' to enter Samoa.

 

On the southern border we have caravans crossing Mexico. I have seen no caravan (poor, tired people of color)  marching through the Caribbean.


Why do you continue to ignore real data on how immigrants enter this country and how terrorists enter this country?  Oh, I forgot, it's what trump supporters do.


That is a separate issue. Do you think because there are alternate entry ways that should also be addressed that the southern border can be overlooked? The caravans should answer that question.

Was the fence the Dems "distraction" when they supported it? You are right - that is a factor to be considered and denial is not an option.


The Democrats offered money for border security and fencing. Trump and McConnell refused it.  The "wall" is a distraction. These are factors to be considered and denial is not an option.
