    • @silfumus True, Republicans are the biggest cowards in the planet since spending on our defense budget is five times bigger than the next five biggest countries defense budgets COMBINED yet somehow they still are SCARED. Just consider for a moment that we in the US have enough firepower to wipe out all life on Earth 10 times over yet it's somehow not enough for them to stop being afraid of everything.

  • 9:33 a border wall, fence, or dome, around the entire country and it's 'owned properties' if properly secured, allowing people in and out at checkpoints only where they are vetted properly, would keep out every one except who should be allowed in, regardless of the existence or presence of money or not...if...properly executed/dealt with/handled/processed/maintained, right? the thing is though, making it happen, and also, how to properly vet? who should get to come and go as they please post vetting each time they come and or go, and who shouldn't? most terrorist acts committed on American soil against American people were committed by American citizens, by far. threats are both 'foreign and domestic', after all. Terrorism goes where people go, irrespective of walls, same as heroism accompanies people wherever they go irrespective of walls, doctors without borders, the UN, and so on. still, another question is even if the wall and attempting to properly vet won't ensure every one's safe from being harmed by other humans guaranteed, shouldn't we do our best to secure all American borders, and to properly vet any person coming or going, same with people flying in or out of America, and if not, how is no wall more likely to keep Americans safe from other people, and or is the safety of people not the only thing to factor and stuff like how it's convenient for businesses and travelers seeking to vacation in a neighboring nation, how many places will be 'vandalized' to allow for the wall, how animals will be stuck apart who want to be on the other side of the wall, how it will cost so much to maintain with cameras and or guards and or whatever it would take to constantly control border securely 'properly'/'effectively', the statue of liberty calls for immigrants to just up and come on in and make yourself welcome in the melting pot of America, she who lifts her lamp beside the golden door, which looks suspiciously like a wall, instead of an open archway, or simply open access to purple mountain majesty upon fruited plains, opportunity, beauty, friendship, progress, hope and like, what next then?

  • Although this is old and I’m well versed in the fear mongering our president uses to influence this country, I still find it rather interesting what some people (primarily extreme trump supporters) think occurs at the border. I recall the daily show once released a video where they interviewed people at a rally close to a border town and a woman claimed she witnessed a 100 Islamic Terrorist ninjas crossing the border in the dead of night. Now although I know border security isn’t perfect but if I could believe (which I don’t) an entire army of terrorists managed to slip past border security, how couldn’t they slip past a single person who probably shouldn’t be in the outskirts of the border?
