It was a scam for him to at least get part of the money but gofundme slapped him down.

This doesn’t surprise me at all. In my books, he’s not in it for the betterment of the country, he’s in it to pad his own pockets, just like Trump.

Here Her good people.....I bring you an episode from the 1950's of a snake oil salesman, named Trump, who tries to tell the masses he will save them all by building a wall to protect them. You simply can't make this $h!7 up!!

Actually, Trump wants to be like North Korea. No elections, just keep his place in power, unanswered, forever.

Yes, but once the wall is up, everything's gonna be just "peachy dory." :biggrin:

Hey! You’ve been listening to the people who put their lives on the line to guard the border and have a real understanding of what is required. Not fair. :-X

Oh really, that's interesting.....

Border Patrol Union Just Deleted a Webpage Saying a Wall Would Be 'Wasting Taxpayer Money'

Digital archives show that the page was deleted after the union's president supported building a border wall with Donald Trump in the White House Briefing Room.......

After Judd finished speaking, Trump said that Judd and his colleagues “basically said—and I can take the word ‘basically’ out—that without a wall, you cannot have border security.”

At that very moment, however, the official policy of Judd’s organization—a union for employees of US Customs and Border Control—was that it “disagrees with wasting taxpayer money on building fences and walls along the border as a means of curtailing illegal immigration into the United States.”

That statement came from the official website of the NBPC’s “Media FAQ” page which argued at length against the policy of building border walls. The page, originally published in October 2012, was deleted on or after January 4, according to archives obtained through the Wayback Machine. This was the day after the press briefing, and four days before President Trump gave a prime-time television address arguing for Congress to spend $5.7 billion in order to build a larger wall along the US-Mexico border.

“Walls and fences are temporary solutions that focus on the symptom (illegal immigration) rather than the problem (employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens),” the now-deleted page says.

Did you actually read what you posted. The union is against a wall. Think about that, and why they would be against it, and then decide if you really think that it has anything to do with national security instead of job security. Oh wait, this is just about bashing Trump at all costs, so who cares about critical thinking. Got it.

That's funny....you should follow your own advise about critical thinking. The Border Patrol Union is the union that represents the Border Patrol...you know the "peeps who put their lives on the line to guard the boarder". Before Trump's speech, their website said the wall was a waste of taxpayer's money But after his press briefing and before Trump's wall speech, the president of the union now supports the Wall. [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif] Here, I've made it easier for you to follow the logic.... :biggrin:

I knew I was beating a dead horse and shouldn't have expected anything meaningful in return, but d0nb, at least I tried. I get points for that right?

You have anything to add to the border patrol flip flop on the "wall, no wall"? I can tell when you don't, it's like the answer above.

Yes - it's a union. They didn't want a wall. This isn't that hard to understand.

Then either your reading skills are poor or its your critical thinking because now they WANT the wall. That is after Trump pressured the president of the Union of Border Patrol into saying they now want the Wall and at the same time changing on their website from "the Wall is a waste of money" to "the Wall is a great idea".
