“Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance.” - Suzy Kassem
Good Day World!
Building a 30-foot high wall stretching for 2000 miles between Mexico and America is not only a stupid idea (I'll tell you why in a moment), but it's a racist's fever dream.
Quick anecdote: Mexican gangs are using catapults (and in some cases drones) to launch drugs into America. Think about that for a moment.
Now think about Trump's proposed wall going across four states, and costing between $12 billion and $15 billion... according to Congressional Republicans.
Trump's 'big, beautiful wall' will require him to take big swaths of other people's land
But, according to an internal report prepared for Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, the real estimated cost of building Don the Con's wall is more like $21 billion.
Mexico Warns Firms That Building A Border Wall Is Not In Their Best Interests
Chump sent a budget proposal to Congress last week that included a $2.6 billion down payment for the wall. The real scary part is the total costs are unclear.
A cursory look at Rump's budget proposal plans on paying for the wall (and beefing up our already world class military) depends upon basically destroying our culture by defunding the arts and doing away with "needless" programs like "Meals On Wheels."
The same people chanting "build a wall" mistakenly believe Mexico is going to foot the cost. So far it hasn't dawned on them that they're going to pony up the loot.
Maybe Hump supporters haven't looked at his recent budget proposal. Maybe they can't read.
I'm willing to bet it'll cause a bigly stir when people are kicked off their land, and discover they've been conned by Donny Little Hand, who reached into their wallets while they were blindly cheering for him.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
