....if you are offended by my politics, please skip this entry.

This is a photograph of one of the Border Wall Prototypes just this side of Tijuana. Photographed by John Gibbons for the San Diego Union Tribune. The article shows all eight wall samples in their massiveness.

I slightly ignored the news yesterday, and we went to bed before the news at ten. This morning, every channel was filled with film of Trump heading our way to view the prototypes. Here he is boarding Air Force One. There are the troops following him from another copter. Here are the protests against the wall, and another one, and yet another one. One spot had a small gathering of supporters too.

I do not want this Berlin Wall in our backyard. I’m not out there marching. I couldn’t get very far. I could paint the signs. I can write here. I can post pictures. I can remind you yet again that our crops need picking and there is no one to do this. I agree we need new immigration policies. I do not think we need a massive wall.
- Himself: Coffee maker died so we went out and bought another with a built in timer.
- Herself: Started quilting at last. Methinks that my crows resemble chickens and sea gulls. Discovered I wasn’t taking enough of the meds.
- Reading: Last year’s JA Jance.
- Gratitude’s: That I continue to feel OK.

I hate Trump, but why do you feel we aren’t allowed to keep our borders safe? I live in Arizona. I cannot count how many drug people, criminals, terrorists, diseased ridden people, and the like cross our border over and under. And no it’s not all Mexicans. Illegal has no race.

We have a huge fence there now. Almost as tall as this one. I think that does the job, and we don't need to spend money on a new one. Yes, illegal has no race. Didn''t when I was a kid and they were called wetbacks either.

Lmao No we don’t. In most places, there is nothing and people just walk across the border with ease. Drug criminals can scale fence parts within a few seconds. Not to mention the miles of tunnels underneath the border where they can move back and forth freely without being checked. I suggest you do your own researching instead of relying on any mainstream media for a very edited and biased version of the truth. Again I live in Arizona.

I only posted the unions page on this because of the photos. I shoudn't have done this.

So you’re afraid of facts?

I'm not offended by anyone's politics. :-)
And I value your opinions and viewpoints. Whether or not I agree isn't strictly relevant. Your points of view are every bit as valid as mine.

I completely agree. There’s a good episode of 99% Imvisible about this, actually. The ending is hopeful. https://99percentinvisible.org/episode/border-wall/

The Berlin wall is a false metaphor.

A wall is a stupid and ugly idea. I'm conscious of Canadian friends who complain about illeal immigrants across their southern border. They're talking about US citizens coming in illegally.
What would we say if they built a wall in an attempt to solve that problem?

I so agree. The wall is a misuse of funds and yet another alienation of a neighboring country. I also think it is racist. Canadians come for tech jobs and yet you don't see him trying to build a wall along that border. I am not anti-Canadian, I'm just saying this particular wall is selective. A more enlightened border policy is definitely needed and we need to work with our neighbors to find workable solutions.

What a shame that wall is...an offense to humanity. Trump is all over our news today for bragging about lying to Justin Trudeau.
