Quote# 11398

I am really tired of the slow paced, foot dragging Congress. I propose that we, the American people, bypass them and get directly down to business....building a secure border.

Why wait for a committee to decide to decide to appropirate the funding....we have the ability to get the job done ourselves. You may ask how...and here's my idea.

We should organize a national fundraiser to pay for the planning, material, and labor of a secure fence between the US and Mexico....to start. We could have massive sections emblazoned with the names of businesses and individuals who sponsor an measured expanse. Imagine...."Home Depot" or "Lowes" or even "Wendy's" maybe even BANK OF AMERICA billboard sized corporate sponsors for security.

I know...the corporate world might not be so happy about doing something on that scale, but why can't we as individuals start to pony up the fundings and get building....that would put a burr under the saddle of those file draggers in the Beltway!

Oh yeah sure. A big fence is going to stop immigration. You know if the people on that forum will believe that crap then I have a few bridges in New York that I want to sell to them.

Just realize that most illegal immigrants don't actually cross the border. The risks involved are extremely high as the mexicans have to traverse deserts with extremely low quantities of water for maybe 3 weeks. In fact a lot of illegal immigrants come here with airplanes and buses and such. They just get a temporary visa and don't renew it. It's much easier.

Please build one on the Canadian border, to keep out wing-nut neo-fascist assholes like you out of my country. Thank you, thank you very much.

Don't worry, whitewater. Those twats hate Canada as well and will stay out of that godforsaken land because they wouldn need to pull the gunrack off their Ford Truck(tm) and leave behind their guns.

Have fun, clevermom! My that's a clever name! How ever did you come up with it?

Yes and they'd like to sponsor Abu Gharaib too no doubt!

How about KFC sponsoring the electric chair in Kansas and particularly Kentucky?

Starbucks making fake tipping money for wannabe actresses working as strippers in LA?

This stupid bitch probably thinks America has the God given right to have unlimited army bases in every country on Earth - and those silly city states like the Vatican, and principalities like Monaco, Leichtenstein, San Marino and Andorra. (OK San Marino's a enclaved republic like Asturias before the Spanish civil war)

Would it be fitting to remind you [ahem] 'clever'mom, that of all the things that have made America great, you have been responsible for exactly NONE of them.

In fact, if you love your country so much, perhaps you'd consider improving it by both shutting up and dying!

5/6/2006 1:12:02 AM


that's a truly awful idea... and, you know why? Because there's no money in it. If there were, someone would be there already.

I am suprised she doesn't advocate landmines, Apache helicopters and machine gun nests.

Isn't the point of billboard to be erected in places where they're easily seen?

Isn't the point of border jumping to cross where you won't be easily seen?

Who would sponsor a section of fence where nobody would see it?

Clever Mom also forgot the important factor of buying real estate. While the government can requisition land for infrastructure improvement corperations and private citizens can't build structures, including fences on land they don't actually own.

Zipperback - yep, I wasn't going to comment on billboard advertising, btu that was the first thing that jumped out at me too. Then I thought I'd go with the whole 'positive association' tack, to avoid making that appear like the only reason companies wouldn't be in on it.

On top of what everyone else has said, the Department of Interior, the US Forest Service, Fish & Game/Wildlife, and the Department of Agriculture are all very very picky about who does what on their land. Public lands are owned by the public -- our taxes (and usage fees) take care of them -- but that means they belong to everyone. Billboard-sized fences are on the long list of things that can't be built on public lands.

(Also, wouldn't a billboard-sized fence be kind of useless? If nothing else, they'd probably be relatively easy to dig under...)

Why stop at fences, why not cover the entire country with a dome to keep out planes? (sarcasm) You also qualify for the \"Wildly Inapropriate Screen Name\" award.

5/6/2006 1:48:36 PM


How about 'Welcome to America' on the fence? Oh wait...

5/7/2006 5:22:40 PM


Yeah, we'll block off the border using a big fence paid for by companies who hire immigrants!

Clevermom? I think not.

She also forgot that no business run by sane individuals would want to be associated with a buch of whackjobs like clevermom.

Kid, did you know that a big chunk of the US economy relies upon those illegals.
