So now we have an arms race with ladders and fences.

Do they not think Mexicans can build longer ladders?

We'll need some more fences. Big ones. Let's get some lumber and nails and hire some Mexicans.

I believe we went through this walls/ladders arms race back in the Middle Ages. The answer was installing a moat.

Ask the Romans. Even that doesn't work if you don't man the wall. Video cameras are great and all, but they've got nothing on javelins and hot pitch.

Or million dollar fines and/or imprisonment for anyone hiring an illegal worker. Remove the incentive for them to come here in the first place.

If we were serious about border security we would build a canal 300 meters wide and 100 meters deep at the border and then stock it with alligators. Lets see those brown bastards get past the national moat.

Why not land mines? We make them right here in the good o'l U.S.A.

A 15ft ladder isn't going to help much on a 15ft fence. The ladder would be vertical and fall over when you climb it. If you set the base of the ladder 5ft from the fence, you would need a 15ft 10in ladder to reach the top.

always the best answer to dealing with 3rd world problem states. annex them and make their massive problems our own.

we need to get you working on cold fusion stat. all our problems will be solved.

"The project is scheduled for completion in September. Congress has mandated 652 miles of fencing along the border. According to the CBP, 650 miles have been completed.

"

its gonna take 6 months to do the 2 remaining miles of fencing? gotta be union work

Or give them in-state tuition rates at the state colleges and drivers licenses. That'll keep 'em in Mexico.

Why, yes, I do live in Maryland.

Border fence in Nogales to be taller, see-through

They will just pay them under the table. Then you have to mandate that all paymnents be made with a govt approved card in order for the worker to be able to use it.

...and you know here that goes next

Someone needs to tell the idiots in charge that Home Depot sells 24-foot ladders.

/And Werner makes 60 feet tall ladders!

After seeing Penn & Teller give the treatment to the new border fence, I am convinced that it would be difficult to control the border.

*The only thing that might do it is snipers or the remote gun from aliens, and if it was available it might be discouraged.

/Without threat of death and just deportation, people will keep on trying and you can't blame that.
*No, I am not suggesting the above.

Mexican will find a way to short it out.

This is mostly an exersize in futility but here's a little math lesson with the combination of practicality:

- Say the 15 ft ladder is placed 5 ft away from the wall.
Then...
Hypotenuse = sqrt((5^2)+(15^2)) = 15.8

So, you're adding less than a foot that I'm sure illegals can manage. They're not that short after all!

The people who cross rivers, fences, ad deserts to come to America are obviously in good shape, ambitious, and highly motivated. Isn't that precisely the kind of person we need more of?

Every Mexican who wants in has to prove he/she is motivated and fit enough by carrying an American fatty back to Mexico and leaving him there. Strongest survives.

The rabid support for a wall or fence has always baffled me. These are essentially the future construction workers of America-- you're telling me you don't think they can cobble something together to get over a fence? It's not going to stop anybody, and you'll be lucky if parts of the fence don't get hauled off and used to build new Phoenix suburbs. At best, it's a sort of hyperexpensive entrance exam for basic construction-worker competence.

Penalty for entering illegally??? Sterilization.


Next.
 
2011-04-13 03:07:19 PM  
elgrancerdo's post and eventual picture just gave me a great idea....why not drill several hundred holes along the entire length of fence and turn it into a series of glory holes.

I'm in!

I meant the fines and imprisonment to be for those that do under the table hiring.

The National Moat would be empty in a week. I bet they'd give us good prices on belts, wallets, and boots, though.
