  • The Great Wall.

    It seems the impenetrable wall is being compromised even before completion.

              There is no lock or wall that will STOP a determined thief or smuggler. But you can sure slow them down or make it too difficult or costly to for them to try.

                The drug smugglers are all very determined, as it is a multi-billion dollar industry.
                The great wall is a high-visibility monument to Donald Trump.
                The money would be better spent on advanced technology and more personnel.

                  Hole in the wall, sounds like an easy place to set up a rifle.
                  Not technically a den so would still be sporting.

                    I find it very difficult to understand, let alone accept, the feelings of some on this site concerning the lack of serious thought regarding the security of this country. It is rather sickening to realize that there are people who hope the wall fails in it’s job of keeping those who may pose problems of crime, drugs, gang members and other illegals from entering America. No one has stated that the wall is a complete provider of safety, but without it, just how much worse would things be ? Those who have a complete disregard of security are the real enemies of this country and are too stupid to be voicing any opinion ! The entire immigration issue can turn into a Trojan Horse realization if there are no boundaries on who enters. Not all those coming here are for our benefit, and do not do so in a peaceful manner. Wake up America !!

                      BHR - Perhaps you would do well to familiarize yourself with the facts of the issue.

                        Facts ?? What facts ?? Those are only opinions from a biased source ! Your acceptance of facts is anything that agrees with your idiocy ! If you have a better idea (that makes sense, that is) as to protecting America’s security and the citizen’s safety, why don’t you share your supposed intelligence with us ! To your way of thinking(?) anything that is difficult is beyond doing, no matter the benefit derived from it. It is people such as yourself who are the problem here ! Get a grip 99 and pull your head out of your butt !

                          Amortized over 50 or 100 years the wall is very cost/benefit a good deal. Mexico has 26,000 Military on their Southern Border helping us keep out the undesirables. Very expensive. We owe Mexico a big debt of thanks.

                            BHR - Your high-sounding rhetoric is devoid of substance. No contradiction of facts.
                            Maintenance costs are estimated at $864,000 PER MILE, PER YEAR.
                            That would pay for a lot of additional Border Patrol agents, at least 10,000 or more, depending on the length of the wall.

                              Who said so ? The steel used develops a protective layer of corrosion and then does not corrode any further. Used successfully in bridges all over the Country. The lower cement base might need a silicone waterproofing every five years or so, just like your cement driveway. Depends on the rain exposure and temps.

                                If Virginia had followed through with their anti gun legislation you would have seen the start of the 2nd civil war in the US.
