If the repigs say we must close our southern border because Terrorists can come here and have an anchor baby & 20 years later that anchor baby will harm us (yes, that's what they're saying) - and Obama doesn't care about our safety because he hasn't built the fence himself....

Why doesn't someone in the Dem party call their bluff on it & say that we'll need a fence up north too?
And what about those dang oceans? Fences all around!! Fences for everyone!!!

The Dems have a golden opportunity here to expose the Repigs for the idiotic racists that they are.

1. A fence on the northern Canadian
border might be more to keep us in!

5. And the escaped convicts from Arizona were going to go across the Canadian border.
Mexico would've been alot closer.

4. We need a wall - a great big wall --for the entire length of the border.
Massive amounts of concrete, a lot of electrical wiring. Ane we need it in two years!

It could be the second stimulus package.

7. And this great wall would have to be built right on every
beach we have cause those brown people are coming over in boats. Sure going to miss sitting on the beach watching the waves, but (sigh) we have to sacrafice to save our country.

8. There are several considerations here.
If a northern fence is built, and the draft is reinstated here, how will young people get into Canada?

A lot of the people coming across the southern border are from places south of Mexico, which has immigration laws as harsh or more so than Arizona. Illegal immigrants are fined, jailed, beaten, robbed, and deported - http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2010-05-25-mexico-mi...

The two oceans are pretty good fences - not very many boat people make it across.

10. All of southern Florida needs protection.
From earthquake-crazed Haitians and socialist, commie terrorist Cubans.

Instead of concrete, rebar and barbed wire, I was thinking of something like a giant condom fitted over the Florida peninsula.

13. The estimate to build the southern land border fence the wingnuts wanted...
would have cost more than the Apollo space program, even if you extrapolate it out into today's dollars. It still wouldn't stop determined individuals from going under, over, or through.
