How about instead of walls just place windfarms.  You get some affect of the blocking walls while powering the midwest.

that's ridiculous, what we need is giant buckets to catch the tornadoes with

/then we can teach them to explore their emotions in safer ways

Right OK this could work plus we could wall off those pesky  "Red States" come election time.
What we need is domes lots of domes yes. Fish, plankton, sea greens... protein from the sea!


Oh and how about we stop major hurricanes with well placed nukes while we're at it.

No, we need a really big gun to stand our ground against the tornados!

You know who else built a wall 1000 feet high?

That was yesterdays crackpot idea on how to stop hurricanes. Tens of thousands of gigantic windmills miles out at sea sucking the energy out of hurricanes.

I suppose the same idea would work for thunderstorms.

MrBeetle: Then fill it up with water?


Two Texans and a New Yorker find a flask. When they open it a genie appears.

"Because you have freed me you each get one wish!"

"I want a huge wall around Texas so that no-one will ever mess with us again!" says the first Texan.
"So it shall be" replies the genie.

"I want all Texans back in Texas" says the second Texan.
Once again the genie replies "So shall it be".

Seeing both Texans disappear the New Yorker asks the genie "So all Texans are in Texas?"
"Yes they are."

The New Yorker thinks for a while and asks: "And there is a huge impenetrable wall around the whole of Texas?"
"Yes there is."

"Okay. For my wish I want you to fill Texas to the brim with water."

How about all the non-free states with helmet laws.  Move freely between the free states, carry your papers (and helmet) for the non-free.
