It's worked for the Roadrunner vs. Wile E. Coyote. I don't see a problem here.

It seemed pretty bleak when they bomb san francisco in the battle of sico or when the push further three eastern cities at the same time resulting in the battle of chicago, dc, and oil rich dallas. But when we did d-day in cancun was the beginning of the end for them.

You Sir are correct, as usual, that Roadrunner was the Sh!t. We need that little MF right about now.

Have a good one!
Thanks I did.

The new administration is keen on the Legos idea, I hope you patched things up with the four year-old so you can continue research on the internet without being told to "get a life", Sheasch, they learn those guilt trips early now.

This will create jobs and surely be worth it. (there isn't an emoji with a big enough eyeroll to follow that)

My son is pretty mean, he would totally deserve his toys being donated to you!

So far I think the lego idea, even without a follow up such as bombing the shoe factories or dropping carpets seems to be the most realistic plan posted.

Thats a HHHHUUUUUGE assumption! We would be disadvantaged once we incurred all this debt that is better spent elsewhere. And guess who is paying for all that first --- US!!! In 4yrs time, do you really think we can recoupe the expense?!? And from Mexico?? Highly doubt it! It will be ineffective and completely irresponsible if you ask me. Trump is just trying to save his own ego at our expense.

Assuming Fox News gets the Trump followers approval as a valid news source?

Quote:
A 2009 Government Accountability Office analysis put costs at $6.5 million a mile for pedestrian fencing and $1.8 million per mile for vehicular blockades. An actual wall constructed of concrete or brick would be more costly and difficult.
In 2009 $6.5 million a mile for the fence and the wall will be more costly and difficult. Assuming almost 10 years later the estimated cost has gone up.

Quote:
U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill, starting with existing money in the Department of Homeland Security account that amounts to a small down payment. Then it's up to the Republican-led Congress to come up with possibly billions of dollars more, cutting money for other domestic programs to finance the wall.
Quote:
"The facts have not changed. Building a wall is the most expensive and least effective way to secure the border," said GOP Rep. Will Hurd, whose sprawling West Texas swing district encompasses more than 800 miles of the border. "Many areas in my district are perfect examples of where a wall is unnecessary and would negatively impact the environment, private property rights and economy."
Quote:
"There's any number of complications," said former House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., citing obstacles like Indian reservations and national parks and forests. And much of the remaining 1,300 miles is very rough terrain, with steep construction costs and a limited return for the dollar. "It's expensive and it's complicated."

Hundreds of miles of the border are so rugged and inhospitable that it doesn't make sense to even try to build.
Quote:
"Insofar as the problem is a physical barrier, we've basically addressed that issue," said Rep. David Price, D-N.C., who chaired the congressional panel that funded the border fence when Democrats controlled Congress. "This focus, this fixation on a wall and pouring untold billions of dollars into a wall is foolishness."
Quote:
Already, U.S. agencies have been told to scrub their budgets for savings that could be used for the wall.

"These taxpayer dollars would be better spent on investing ... to find cures for cancer and other diseases, spending on hospitals and doctors to care for our veterans, helping communities with clean water investments, supporting police in our communities," said Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vt.

Mexicans in the US send $24B home to Mexico each year. Maybe we take 1/2 that money in a "wall tax?"
