Lou Dobbs just said that Bush will sign the 700-mile fence law
on Thursday.

Do you really think that will help? How many million will cross over before the fence is built? I don't think there is a fence high enough. It is doing nothing more than to delay a real solution.

3. The only problem is that the fence is too far south
I say, build it between Texas and Oklahoma.

5. No Canadian Fence?
"Terrorists" only cross the Southern Border of the US? Dare we think, it may be RACIAL? Can you tell a Canadian from an American by the way they look or the language they speak? Nah, those Canadians are too smart to want to come here anyway.

6. Canadians can earn a decent wage in their own country
It would be too expensive for employers to hire them at a rate that would make it attractive for them to come here.

It isn't about race. It's about exploitation.

8. The farmer built a fence around his
garden to keep out the varmints. But, somehow, those darn rabbits just kept right on getting in.

9. Gov. Schweitzer said: "Stupid, make it 20 feet tall and Walmart will stock 21
foot ladders."

What a waste of money and an insult to our border.

Do they think Mexicans are too stupid to tunnel under or climb over or else take a raft from Matamoros to Padre Island? That island is as long as Long Island! Think of the landing zones from Brooklyn to Montauk...

The only way to stop migration out of Mexico is to give Mexicans a reason to stay there. Right now there are what, 100 families that run the entire show with global corps being the balance?

There is no reason why Mexico should not be as wealthy as and the United States, save the fact that it has been a colonial racist country since it became part of New Spain.

10. If they want to build a useful fence, then it should be placed
around Washington, DC to keep the Neo-Cons out.
