Anyone who believes that a border wall will solve our complicated immigration problem is a moron. A fair and equitable solution to preventing undesirables from crossing our borders, combined with welcoming refugees who deserve our compassion can only be achieved when both parties unite to discuss the problem intelligently and openly, eventually coming to a compromise which will please the majority. Sadly, the legislators in Washington today are incompetent.
Members of Trump’s deplorable cult think a wall is the ultimate solution. The truth is that it would be another of Trump’s follies which will achieve nothing with the exception of wasting billions of taxpayer dollars. When he first suggested the idea, we all laughed at him; intelligent men and women are still laughing.
Paul Ryan will be remembered as a worse Speaker of the House than John Boehner. He will also be known as the ultimate hypocrite. In a last effort to pay homage to his despicable and illegitimate president, Ryan convinced 217 members of his hypocritical and failed party to approve $5.7 billion to waste on Trump’s folly. This was done after Trump refused to sign a bipartisan bill which would have prevented a government shutdown today. Trump is once again bullying congress and the American people so this spoiled child of privilege can have his way. Trump makes me puke.
Someone must inform Trump and his cult that this is not the 16th century. In the 21st century we have technology which can accomplish the desired effect more efficiently and at a much lower cost.
Finally, Paul Ryan’s efforts in the House, his last until we are rid of this failure, may be moot. Votes by Democratic Senators are needed to pass the House’s version, and they are apparently not available. Trump’s government shutdown will begin at midnight. Another failure for Trump and his circle of sinners. The word my fellow Americans is “loser.”
