I keep hearing about this Geocities thing. Maybe some day I will try it.

Wall is Coming!

Appropriations Committee has approved the funding of the wall, so work can now get started.

The part where Mexico pays for it is yet to be figured out, but it's coming.

American citizens are going to pay for the wall, one way or another.

True, Mexico is definitely part of the Americas. Great point!

When this wall is a disaster and Mexico doesn't pay, what will be your penance, PC?

The only way that would happen is if the democrats and neocons obstruct this program. So it would be their fault and show how they are complete failures. Complete. Failures.

Not really.  This whole anti-immigrant thing is already building up to be a disaster.  There's peaches rotting in the fields.  There's immigrants finishing college and immediately going back to Mexico.

The Wall is just a symptom, and an expensive pointless symptom at that.  But it's already given Immigration Workers in Texas permission to abuse people coming over the border.

America gets some of its go-getter energy from new immigrants.  It's a shame we're demonizing them now.

I have nothing against the Mexicans. However, if they want to have a better life why don't they vote to join the US. We had Mexico during the Mexican-American war. We didn't want it so we gave it back. Now we can take it back and keep it a territory. We can make it a better country. They won't even need to come up north since lives will be better over there.  Get on with it.

Pay American citizens to pick them.

Apparently that would require paying minimum wage, providing bathrooms, and humane working conditions, which these big taxpayer supported factory farms don't want to do.

Yeah a living minimum wage and actual enforcement of it would solve the immigration issue on its own.

I'm down with that. But seize his wealth and companies which were created with tax breaks, government grants, and stolen wealth created by his employees. Ship the bastard off with only the shirt on his back or send him to the guillotine.

Every attempt at that was stopped by slave-owning states refusing to allow a territory (that had outlawed slavery) from joining the Union.

There's also that Mexicans really despise Americans.

No they don't!  Mexicans love Americans!

They hate Trump, but then lots of Americans hate Trump.

Oh, and they hate border-guard Nazi's who are pushing the limits of what's legal in kicking Mexicans out of America.

But I think you'd hate that too.

No, my daughter lives in Mexico these days. She reports that Mexicans actually think Americans are generally classless pieces of shit.

They're very polite though, and keep it to themselves.
