About the wall

Mr. Trump insists that terrorists, drugs, villains of all stripe, are a national emergency threat to our country, and a wall will put an end to that possibility.

It’s a well-known and common sense fact that drugs, people of ill-repute, have two other routes to take them to our literally hundreds of ports of entry: Boats, and airplanes, as well as the northern border which doesn’t have a wall.

So, Mr. Trump, why not build a wall on the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, the Pacific Ocean? Makes just as much sense. If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. If a wall is built to keep out outlaws, only outlaws will get here.

I would plead with all citizens interested in this fiasco to leave their Facebook, and other activities, and take a little time to watch MSNBC, as well as Fox News, for a couple hours to see what some sensible Republicans, as well as professors, congressmen, journalists, political experts in their field, are saying about this shut-down, this stubbornness, this false sense of emergency that is being imagined by Trump and those who believe him.

I have watched both MSNBC and Fox News, and have average intelligence, and if I can see truth, then hopefully everyone can.
