Defeating the stupid "Pelosi is a hypocrite who has a wall around her own house" - type argument [View all]

Here's a facebook exchange between myself and a trumpian sister (who has a small farm in the Orlando area).

sis: I say BUILD THE WALL.

me: I've got a question for you: why don't you build a wall around your own place so nobody can get in? Too expensive? The investment is too high compared to the risk of terrorism and invasion? It wouldn't work, anyway? It wouldn't look so good?

sis: I have a fence around my yard and also have 3 large dogs. I do my best to protect what I have. We have enough criminals living here without getting more.

me: a STUPID expensive wall won't keep out criminals, that's why you won't build it. You say you do your best to protect what you have? Well, if that doesn't include a wall that's NOT doing your best, is it? Isn't that the stupid Republican argument?

(And, by the way, her 3 large dogs are pussycats who welcome strangers, not frighten them. LOL)
