After all, he got one built in Jordan for $500m of our tax dollars:


The Great Wall of Jordan: How the US Wants to Keep the Islamic State Out

By William M. Arkin Feb 24, 2016


The Obama administration is spending close to a half a billion dollars to build a sophisticated electronic fence along Jordan's northern and eastern borders, a wall which US strategic planners hope will stem the flow of refugees and also wall off the increasingly important American base from the disintegration of Syria and Iraq.

The wall, which began as a $20 million project in 2008 to erect a set of surveillance towers along a 30-mile (50 km) stretch of the border with Syria, has since expanded into a program costing half a billion dollars, according to defense officials who spoke to VICE News....

I decided I'd take a few minutes of my life to figure out why anyone woudl argue a wall is immoral, which caused me to trip across this article:

It is the stupidest piece of idiotic trash I've ever read in my life. The authors portray a fundamental lack of understanding of just about every subject they touch.

You should’ve noticed the names of the authors before you bothered

You mention cost-effective. If they were talking about 50 million maybe but we're talking about 5.7 billion dollars. The military got 715 billion last year and 5.7 amounts to about 0.05% of the total budget. If Trump thinks 5 billion spent on border security will improve it then do it. They'll piss away more than that on entitlement spending or the military or about any of the cabinet level divisions. That would like us ordinary working stiffs going out and blowing $100 on a good Saturday night.

That was what enraged his supporters about Omnibus,he gave us nothing for our support but gave the Pentagon $710b. He was put on thin ice when he pulled that stunt.

Has any libshit explained a “moral” border security plan yet?


I haven’t seen or heard one. But I’m told it exists. Can anyone explain what it looks like?

So, if we assumed that building the wall on the southwest border would cost on the low end $25,000,000,000 and we saw the same cost over run that is illustrated in the OP - that project would then cost: $500,000,000,000. Curious.

Amazing how you're "assuming" the cost then "assuming" cost overruns to end up with a grossly distorted figure that helps your argument.
