    It will be as stupid a waste of resources for an easily breachable meaningless show as it ever was.

    I think it was you who mentioned that godawful world war z movie in a different post. If you keep focusing on building a wall when it couldn't be high enough to be functional, and besides the point not addressing the real problem of need, then it's literally a pointless endeavor.

    It's frustrating.



    Seriously, we do have the tech to monitor the entire border at less cost. Drones, cameras and real time satellite for starters.

    None of that would stop or change the problem, anymore than it did in aforementioned godawful movie.

    With the Lefts sanctuary cities & states the wall does seem to be a contradiction.

    Being surprised that Biden, with his dubious and morally questionable track record, is doing something like this seems to me to underline having put too much stock into his judgment and ethics.

    He is a lesser evil, to be sure, but that should not for one moment overshadow the reality that he is still a suboptimal choice at best.

    Biden isn't left. He's centrist, at best.

    Or in the reality of anyone who isn't taken in by America's myopic Overton window.

    America doesn't have a real left. Just a bunch of ignorant churls who would call the regular centrist positions of most of the rest of the developed world 'EXTREMIST LEFT!'

    Compared to the far Left maybe but still, the Left in America are enablers. Biden gave the green light and illegal's started flooding in again.

    "Left" and "Right" are always relative. In the U.S. Biden is slightly left of center. In Europe he would be rather far right. It would be rather useless if both Democrats and Republicans were classified as "Right".

    But as they both are "right" in their candidate choices and economic policies (D's just right of center w/Biden), I say they are both right leaning parties. The modern GOP is just off the rail far-right.
