    What is immoral about building a wall? Why do we all build walls around our 1/4 acre sections?

    No idea really but what has the Vatican wall built so long ago got to do with building one on their southern boarder?
    Though I really can't see that it will solve their issues at all.
    Where the people are trying to get across at the moment there is a wall!

    I guess it becomes immoral when the majority don't want to pay for it and I surmised too that there's really no proof also that those going to climb over the wall are rapists, gang members and other criminals.

    Default The can't do president ...

    TrumpsWall.PNG

    The third line shows how much Trump achieved in two years with a majority in congress and house.

    Lots of hot air and no actions.

    Guess how much he will achieve for the reminder of his reign?

    Default About time for Trump to go?

    Here is the short version:

    Here is the basic evidence about our current president:
    1. He has accepted money from foreign governments, used the presidency to promote his businesses and hidden his personal finances from the American people.
    2. He directed a criminal campaign-finance violation scheme, in the final month of the presidential campaign, and lied to the American people about it.
    3. He pressured Justice Department officials to go easy on an investigation into the president himself and his campaign.
    4. He attempted to undermine the credibility of multiple checks and balances on the executive branch, including the justice system, the press, the electoral system and the Central Intelligence Agency.
    And here the long:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/05/o...peachment.html

    Wondering whether he is already working on cutting a deal for himself and his family - like any other dirty despote who's time has come would do?

    Fact-Checking President Donald Trump's Lies As Shutdown Enters Third Week | Morning Joe | MSNBC

    Trump had to create a sense of crisis to win and he has to keep the crisis going to keep his popularity from going down (terrible trade deals, crisis at the border). He's a great deal maker but the first time he has to make a tough deal with Democrats he can't do it.

    Public comments:
    Fact-checking Trump's lies is like holding back the sea with a bucket.
    If the orange buffoon's lips are moving then he's lying.
    Fact: Most terrorists come through airports.
    We are screwed if the terrorists ever figure out we have a boarder with Canada too.
    In his inauguration speech he promised never to lie to the American people; it turned out that was a lie.
    There is a crisis on the southern border..... CHILDREN IN CAGES DYING!!!!

    Default Small is beautiful ...

    Nice to see Dumb's popularity dropping with every day the government shutdown continues:

    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com...roval-ratings/

    Nearly 55% of Americans disapprove. They figured out by now who the idiot in the White House is. But don't tell him and his supporters - I am sure he can trump these numbers. Small is beautiful - isn't it?

    The majority don't want to pay taxes, are taxes immoral?

    As for proof that those climbing the wall aren't criminals

    Do you lock your door at night, or do you allow people, homeless, criminals and whoever else stroll in and out as they please?

    "The Homeland Security website indicates that 90 per cent of the heroin smuggled into the USA comes across that porous border, and 23 per cent of inmates in federal prisons are illegal immigrants."

    Gee. You've got a point there. I suppose they'd better build a wall along Canadian border as well. I have it on good authority that some Canadians are criminals. Then of course they will need walls along east and west coasts to stop naughty people with boats. After all, Cubans probably have just as many rapists and murderers. Then a roof right over the states will stop those particularly naughty aviators. After that, it's only a matter of stopping those who enter legally then forget to leave. Best way to handle that is to prevent entry to all foreigners. Seems to work for Saudi Arabia, Nth. Korea and no doubt some others. You're on top of it Donald.
