2. $1.4 billion is enough for a fresh coat of paint

We probably spent more per year on the existing border wall under Obama.

I canít muster up enough energy to care.

5. I am sure that a lot of important things were in that bill.

Democrats had a choice, make a shitstorm about a relatively small amount, or pass the bill. Nothing in life is perfect, anyone that believe in perfection or nothing are wrong.

6. Yep, and hopefully it was more for fencing/repairs rather

than new wall.

8. With the way Trump is managing things, $1.4 billion won't build much wall.

It can repair a few things, or buy stuff that works, like drones and sensors.

7. Parental leave for federal workers: wasn't that also in the bill? IIRC, old-style compromise bill.
