Build the Wall

Senator Wicker disappointed me.  My first thought was that he made a dumb mistake.  After thinking it over, I figure more likely it was a bribe or threat.  I don’t know which.  It doesn’t matter.  He voted against the wall.  He gave the standard excuse, but he knew better.  He knew it was nothing more than an excuse.

Next time he comes up for election, I will not vote for him.  Even more, I will do everything in my power to keep him from being re-elected.  I know that isn’t much but I suspect he disappointed a few other Mississippians too.  When all is said and done, he just might be looking for another job before too long.  I hope so.  It just might be a lesson for others as well.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Something to Look Forward to

What three things do San Francisco, Chicago and New York have in common?  That’s right.  Their governments are led by dummycrat liberals and all three are in desperate financial straits.  Indeed, almost, if not all major cities in this country now have dummycrats in charge.  Moreover, the longer they have been in charge, the worse off they are.  By the way, their situation is only getting worse day by day.

Also, if an honest person was to analyze the state leaderships, they would likely find the same pattern.  Look at New York and California.  I lived in California pretty much until I was twenty.  Ronald Reagan was the last true Republican governor there.

When Ronald Reagan took charge, he set the state on financial solid ground and poverty was almost non-existent.  Since he left office there, it has done nothing but go downhill.

I had some hope when Arnold Schwarzenegger went into office.  I must admit he disappointed me.  Well, I guess I can’t complain.  I had long left the state behind.  I found it too crowded among other things.

I must say that I’m not sorry I left.  Per capita, it now has the largest number living in poverty.  Most of the major cities have folks living on the streets, which causes the risk of all kinds of disease.  Though I miss the weather, the beaches and mountains, I hate to see what the dummycrats have done to my home state.  Apparently, I’m not the only one.  People, those that are able, are leaving the state.  By the way, they are also leaving Illinois, New York (especially the city), New Jersey, etc.

Now it would appear the dummycrats want to do the same thing to the country as they did to California and New York.  They aren’t happy messing up their own states.  They want to ruin the rest of the country too.  I suspect they will have some success with it, much to my dismay.  However, hopefully, they will discover the error of their ways before too long.  Otherwise, we will all have to put up with the same type of life as those in New York, or even California.

If it were just for a while, it might not be so bad.  However, one of the first things those dummycrats want to do is destroy our national defenses.  They also want to open our borders.  After a few years of that, there would be no reversing things.  The US as we know it will cease to exist.  Instead of living like those in California, we will be living like those in Russia or maybe China.  Eventually, we just might have to put up with lives like those in Venezuela.  Instead of the paradise the dummycrats are promising us we will live in the equivilant of a prison or even a dungeon.  At that point, they will want to build walls.  Only, instead of keeping others out, they will be needed to keep us in.

Now I ask you… is that something to look forward to?

Imported disease

Some time ago, I brought up the possibility that people with disease have been coming over the border.  Now I found out that it is more true than I realized.  They now have approximately 2000 in quarantine who they found crossing the border.

Statistically, the say that for each one they catch, two get away.  That means that there are likely 4000 people carrying disease in this country who we don’t know.  Let me correct that.  It is far more than 4000.  Each of those who carried a disease across the boarder likely gave it to few more, maybe as many as ten.  That means we might be talking about 40,000.

You still think we don’t have an emergency on our border?  Maybe you should think again.  That outbreak of anti-bio-tic resistant epidemic of who knows what.  It might even be an unknown disease.

Pelosi is just a dummycrat.  President has it right.  We need to BUILD THAT WALL.  It won’t stop them all, but it will stop some.  Moreover, we need to modify our laws so that any illegal immigrant can be sent back where they came from.  It would instantly stop the caravans.

Of course the dummycrats are always saying we can use technology instead of a wall.  Maybe they are right.  Maybe we can use Robocop type robots.  Maybe that would work.  If course, it would take about forty years to design and test them.  In the meantime, maybe we should BUILD A WALL!

A Moot Point

I heard something interesting the other day.  A talk show host suggested that senators and representatives might be taking bribes from the drug cartels to keep the southern border open.  I must admit that it did cause me to think it over.  It did sound logical.  Certainly the motive is there.

Then as I continued to consider it, I realized it was a moot point.  That is to say, it doesn’t matter.  If they are being bribed, to be sure, they should be prosecuted and thrown in prison.  You and I know that is not going to happen.  On the other hand, if they are not being bribed, why should the cartels bribe them?  They are already keeping the border open.  What more can they ask for?

There are miles of border that have no walls.  The drugs can easily be smuggled over the border at almost any of those places.  Women and children are already smuggled into this country daily.  Moreover, it doesn’t take the cartel to do it.  Terrorists can take sizable weapons or bombs over the border and they have a very good possibility of succeeding.

The dummycrats want to stop the sale of guns.  They don’t seem to have any objection to guns and gunmen coming over the border.  Moreover, the guns need not be legal.  A fully automatic M-16 (a fully automatic weapon) can be smuggled over the border as easily as an AR-15 (a semi-automatic weapon).  An Uzi (automatic) can be smuggled as easily as a .45 automatic (semi-automatic).  A dozen or so Thompson Submachine-guns (fully automatic) can be easily packed into the trunk of a car and smuggled over the border.

Don’t have any illusions.  If someone was going to smuggle such weapons into this country, they would not try to bring them through a port of entry.  They would try to find a place without a fence and wait until dark.  It is true that the Border Patrol is very good at their job.  Still, they just might get through.  Mathematically, the chances of the smuggler succeeding are roughly sixty percent.

As I look at the situation, I wonder why someone hasn’t already done it.  If someone does and gets away with it, the dummycrats just might realize how dumb their stance on the wall is.  Then again, they are dummycrats.  I’m not sure they would realize their error even then.

Good Guys Finish Last?

To some degree, the adage “nice guys finish last” has again been proven true.  Because President Trump did not want the federal employees to continue to lose their pay; because Pelosi could care less about those who were suffering, the nice guy – President Trump lost.  The heartless one – Pelosi won.

In the end, however, the good guys may yet win.  If Pelosi goes back on her word, as she has done so many times before, President Trump can still come out victorious.  He can declare the emergency and build the wall anyway.  What’s more, he might build it bigger and longer.  Then Pelosi will be the one with egg on her face.  The real villain will lose and the people will see how effective it is.   Finally, in the end, the people will see how much of a liar Pelosi is.

Of course, it should not be a surprise to anyone.  After all, she is a dummycrat and lying is what dummycrats do.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Pravda v Our Mainstream News Media

Pravda printed propaganda because the Soviet Union made them, more or less at the point of a gun.

The American mainstream media prints propaganda because they want to.

Other than that, I can’t see a whole lot of difference. They both bolster the benefits of socialism and rail the horrors of capitalism.  They both say how wonderful it is for one central government to run everything and the horrors of individual thought.

Remember these things:

1. Deceit does not always require a lie.  Sometimes an element of truth is more deceiving than the lie.

2. For those who like their welfare: Not everyone who gives you things is your friend.  Often, gifts are given with an element of control.  Those who give you bread today, seek to tell your children how to live, and think.  (Our forefathers gave us freedom.  Do you want to give your children bondage and tyranny.)

3. We ought to do that which is right, regardless of the penalty.  We ought not do that which is wrong, regardless of the reward.

To be sure, President Trump is trying to do that which saves lives and protects our freedom.  The dummycrats are doing all they can to stand in his way.  It is because of the open border that people seek to enter illegally, often costing their lives and freedom.  They are in favor of laws that act like magnets, such as welfare for all and college for illegal aliens that encourage their long and dangerous trek.  They make it almost impossible to send them back, which often endangers the lives of those who legally live here.  And, by the way, it also endangers the lives of those who live here illegally.

It is the dummycrats that offer free things, all the while sizing control of the government.  Once they control our government, the welfare will stop and the tyranny will begin.  It is the pattern.  It is the way it was in Russia.  It is the way it was in China.  It was what happened in Cuba and Venezuela.  Now people who live in these countries risk their lives to live here.  Once we become as they are, where do we go to seek freedom?  To what land do we go to to think as we want without the thought police looking over our shoulder.

You say it won’t happen here as it did there.  Have you taken a good look at our college campuses?  The liberals already rule those institutions, there ones that are supposed to encourage free thought.  The government is already telling us who we can do business with.  The thought police are right around the corner.  Soon they will tell us what we can or can’t preach in church.  For that matter, they just might try to do away with the churches altogether.

One world government is what the socialists seek.  It is what Karl Marx taught.  It was his ultimate goal.  It was to do away with war.  But when the government that rules the world is bad, what recourse do freedom lovers have?

 

Possible Wall Building Materials

I know.  I am not a design engineer.  I barely graduated high school.  So maybe this thought is all wet.  None the less, I just have to suggest it.

First there is the there is possibility of using clear plastic.  It would probably be a good idea to enclose some kind of wire mesh for strength.  It would have three big advantages, maybe four or five.  It could be built very fast.  It could easily be repaired. There is no way for someone to climb a smooth plastic surface.  To be sure, it would be transparent.  I am guessing that plastic is less expensive than steel.  In cars, they keep replacing steel with plastic, I guess, because it is less expensive.  It is certainly lighter and likely easier to mold.

My second consideration is fiberglass.  I am sure that fiberglass would have most of the advantages of plastic but it would not be clear. Still, plastic windows could be built into it.  I don’t know how fiber glass compares in cost with steel, but they sure build a lot of boats from it.  If must be at least competitive with steel.  Moreover, it is far easier to repair than steel or plastic.  In all likelihood, the patch could be made stronger than the the original wall.  The fiberglass would also have one more big advantage.  Sensors could easily be hidden in the wall that could sense noise and changes in light.  Also, speakers could be installed so that warnings and/or sirens can go off the instant someone tries to go over or under the wall.

Maybe someone out there who has some knowledge on the subject can tell if I am going astray with these thoughts.  Certainly, if plastic or fiberglass is better, someone else would have thought of it.

Actually, I just had another thought.  The plastic could have gravel inside it.  I’m not sure, but I think maybe small rocks or gravel might be less expensive plastic.  It just might also have a side benefit, it might have real nice esthetic values.

Regardless, it might be a good idea to coat the wall on both side with some good slick grease.  First, it will make it more difficult to climb.  Second, no one wants to get grease all over themselves.  Third, if someone does manage to scale the wall, it will be easy to tell.  He will will have grease on him.
