This one went south pretty quick (rimshot) ...

 

I know a few NG members ... they're fun to drink with, but I'm not sure I want them holding trigger fingers on Mexico.

 

I'm curious - if we can get beyond the fact that Trump is ... who he is ... so, beyond the cheeto that IS the president ...

 

Is this a necessary or good idea? 

 

I've never spent much time in the border regions.  I've read McCarthy's Border Trilogy a few dozen times, but I don't think that counts.

 

Curious to hear thoughts from members elsewhere (I live in Alaska, where all we worry about is "Snow Mexicans," AKA Canadians) ...

 

:)

Rough bunch those Canadians, 

That must explain the wall and heavy armed guards and other fortifications at the border.

We don't want those sneaky fuckers slipping across the border and stealing our pay-for-play healthcare system now, do we? 

 

First it's socialized medicine, then it's legal MJ, then it's ....

 

Hmm.  Maybe I'll move back to the Great White North after all?

I remember when Carter pardoned the draft evaders in Canada.  The National Lampoon printed a areal photo of one of the international bridges with one car on it, with the headline, "Floodgates Open To Human Tide."    There is a voice bubble coming out of that lone car with the words, "Fuck off, eh."

National Guard on the border, same trained professional folks who protected Kent State.

What could possibly go wrong with that plan?

Not sure if Mexico would respond in kind but I'm sure they could turn a blind eye to the odd white brick or fifty. Million. Oh hang on you were talking about the future. My bad...

So you had me on this one. I had to go and search:

https://www.cnn.com/...rder/index.html

 

Seriously? Troops on the border?

This dude's (Trump) off his rocker.

I can't say that I've noticed an increase in illegal border crossings - or even heard of an increase. (And I live here - @ the border.)

Its just another of many, child tantrum reactions, when wanabe King Trump can't get any one to support his multi billion dollar plans that make absolutely no sense.

A wall that will do nothing but further strain relations with our neighbors to the south. when the real responsibility is to create realistic legislature to encourage immigration to lead towards citizenship by desire, if its not a temporary living situation. There has been no more influx of workers than normal that I can see.

 

Oh, I forgot, "realistic" is not in the vocabulary.

 

Brought to you by the same donkey who thinks convincing teachers to carry guns to work, will stop kids from having psychotic breakdowns during school hours.

 

what could go wrong indeed....................

I heard a radio news report last night that said the NG would not be carrying weapons initially.   That would make it seem their mission is to be targets.

Deploy the Weekend Warriors without their boomsticks?  Never happen - they'd revolt.  In truth, they'll be safer (to the local population) with their security blankets than without.

Truth be told, the Snow Mexicans are pretty easy to deal with, most of the time.

If they start getting out of line, we'll get out the traps again....

As far as sending NG troops to the boarder, I cant see any good come out of that. At best, it will waste a lot of money, and get no one killed. It could go down hill from there

Anybody notice that Puerto Rico still doesn't have its electrical grid repaired... I'm just saying that without looking too hard, much better uses for that money could be found.

Anyway, if trump sends all them NG'ers to the boarder, who will he get to march in his parade?

The average American doesn't even know that Puerto Ricans are Americans ... it's crazy what our nation hasn't done for them, and the ADD suffering national media hasn't helped by lumping them in with the other two hurricanes and then promptly forgetting them all (Look! Someone famous said something amusing!)

 

I heard on the radio that the plan is actually to keep them unarmed.  Mark it - that won't last - hey, don't believe me - skip to second 45 and let Jack explain it:

I am a little bit surprised Canada hasnt started building one...

The US should start building one soon anyway, esp. if Trumpet gets a second term. Bit like Berlin, to keep the hostages under control.
