IIRC the guys in that Guardian vudeo ssis they were not seeking a paramilitary confrontstion.

To me they looked somewhat more than just "defensive", with that cam and their weapons and behaviour. OK, csm is as defensive as aggressive, guns can be for self defence - just in case some nasty people pop over the border . . .

Yeah, I'm really convinced . . .

Yeah, I'm really convinced, as well. They're only there to "observe" and "report."

And then we have false reports like this:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/02/21/texas-hunters-claimed-they-were-shot-by-illegal-aliens-authorities-say-they-shot-each-other/

They shot each other, and then tried to blame it on illegal immigrants.
:picard facepalm:

Yeah, with any justice that's:

Hospital bill               $10k
Wasting police time $10k
Wasting BP time       $10k
Fines                           $10k

Prison                          10 years

Each...

I thought these two reports by CNN were both interesting and informative.

Building Trump's wall: For Texans, it's complicated

Especially this one, and the proposed theft of private land.

This is one of those things that sound good at first hearing, and as long as you don't think about it, it will still sound fine.

Many think Trump is a good business man, and they think he will make great deals. But this fails if you only think a little deeper.

For the buyer, a great deal is a low price.

For the seller, a great deal is a high price.

They are mutually exclusive. But Trump doesn't care about the person who is not him, so most of his deals tend to be great for him and bad for the other party. One guy, a small piano seller, gave Trump a great deal by only getting paid 20% of the agreed upon amount. Great deal for Trump, but a shitty deal for that guy.

I guess I'm saying that this land theft looks like Trumps MO.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I watched that video last night. I kept shaking my head in disbelief. The story about the fire is really sad. I can understand why they feel angry about the whole thing.

Looks like 45 is taking a step back from the wall - for the moment at least. But, as time goes on and he digs even deeper holes, chances are it will get harder to fund, not easier.

Time is on your side I think.

It would take money that's not there. But maybe one day I can smugly and sarcastically ask the trumpets "where is your wall now!?"
