Behold The Wall®

Something else I can do better than King Donald the Short-fingered:
Get a Wall® built.

What’s all this fuss about a Wall®?

I had a Wall® done yesterday. Easy peasy. Spanish-speakers were involved, though they declined to pay for my border-security project. And it wasn’t a Wall® from scratch, but rather enhancements to an existing Wall®.

But still, as you see, here we are. And nobody had to work for free, take on a second job, or go to a food bank over it.

    something there is that doesn’t love a wall.

    Keeping the deer out, or the cats in?

    Seems there was some poison pills in his 1200 page simple bill that the turtle is bringing to the floor of the senate. Plus, being the fair minded fellow his is, he is also bringing a democratic funding bill to the floor as well. Neither have any chance to pass the senate or the house, but hey, they are doing something. Thanks?
    As far as the tiny dicked vulgarian is concerned, politics is a game with with two sides and a wall. Just don’t make the wall so high that the politicians can’t straddle or jump over it. I have ZERO confidence in congress doing anything. I have sent this message to them. I haven’t called them yet, as Patrick suggested, and it’s a good suggestion. I will, but the message will be the same.

  4. Dale Says:

    You can bet your worthless leftover Trump Casino poker chips that if a wall is ever built, it will be by a shell company 7 times removed from Donny Jr., Eric, Javanka, etc.

    And the contractors will be stiffed.

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      Plus, half the workers will be undocumented immigrants. The construction industry, at least in the Southwest, depends on them. So does agriculture, to include the dairy industry. That way they can put the appropriate signage on the wall in English and Spanish. Facing our way it says “Go back where you came from.” Facing South it says “Help Wanted. Inquire within.”

      Americans are addicted to cheap shit. Whaddaya think an avocado for a hipster’s toast would cost if San Diego hipsters farmed the avocados? Or if honkies harvested the bacon, lettuce and tomatoes for their BLTs?

      We’d all be doing it hand to hand with the furloughed feddle-gummint workers for those Uber gigs, is what.

      • Dale Says:

        I, resembling a honky, remember driving a tractor on my older cousin’s farm. Mainly cutting corn stubble down to a point where it could be tilled into the soil in spring.

        My least favorite job was helping to castrate young pigs – no matter how long I showered after that, I could not get the smell of pig nuts off of me.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        I did exactly a half-day of detasseling corn in Iowa, in the summer of 1973. Got fired for smoking dope on the lunch break. I was never so happy to get the sack in my young life. Went straight back to retailing weed.

    Reminds me of a project I had done back when we owned the shack in Iowa. This outfit (Thrasher) was supposed to a) install some giant screw gizmos to bring a cinderblock retaining wall back to straight b) repair some damage to various blocks and toppers. They sent a couple of Latino guys out with the screw gizmos, but nada to fix the broken/missing cinder blocks. I felt sorry for the guy when he had to go to the local home-improvement joint and buy blocks and mortar to half-assedly complete the project. It looked like hell! But at least I got Thrasher to refund the portion covering the repairs and the wall was still pretty much upright when we handed over the deed.
    Fat Nixon now says “Build the Wall, Crime will Fall!”…does that include the actions of his Trump Crime Family…since crime is already close to all-time low levels at the southern border?
    I was planning to come back to the US of A for NAHBS, but now wonder if I’ll ever be able to get back out again vs being stuck in an endless TSA security line?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      They’ll be outsourcing the TSA patdowns to the Young Republicans here before much longer. Just one more reason to fly Air Subaru.

      Meanwhile, it seems one 78-year-old woman has bigger ’nads than the entire Republican caucus. I’d be worried about an OK Corral-style gunfight between the SS and Capitol Police if I wasn’t pretty sure they weren’t authorized to buy ammo during the shutdown.

      • larryatcycleitalia Says:

        Don’t mess with this Italian grandmother! Fat Nixon’s met his match in Nonna Pelosi. Nobody else would have the guts to take on this blowbag along with the smarts to know just how to f–k with his inflated ego. The demos in the House need to shut up, sit down and let her take the fight to Don the Con no matter where it ends up.

  6. Pat O'Brien Says:

    And, it keeps getting more ridiculous inside the beltway.

  7. David Rees Says:

    And speaking of hiring “illegals”, here’s a great article about that, chronicling none other than our own close friend – illegal hater extraordinaire – and his family’s, and friends – dairy farm in Iowa. Has there ever been a bigger worm in politics than Nunes?

    • B Lester Says:

      Good God, David. That is f’ed up on so many levels. Stupid, and very sad. The illustration in the text of the definition of cognitive dissonance, I guess. Nunes is even stranger than I might have imagined, and we all know about King. Sheesh!

      • David Rees Says:

        Yeah, it’s an extraordinary article that didn’t seem to get much traction in the press. If it’s all true, it explains a great deal about Nunes’ actions the last two years.

        • BLester Says:

          I dunno. I mean, if Nunes really believes this bullshit, I guess I know nothing about reading people. I mean, for cribies sake, what on fukkk,,ng earth does he stand to gain from lying about his family just to curry favor from a guy who will never pay off?

          • larryatcycleitalia Says:

            Seems to me these folks are clever in a nasty way. Demonize the workforce needed for these backbreaking agriculture jobs so you can pay them less! And you please your xenophobic base in the process! Win-Win!
            I lived in Iowa long enough to know what these folks are like – ever hear of “Iowa Nice”? It’s NOT a compliment.

  8. Hurben Says:

    Just need some razor wire on top of it, a few guard towers & you’re good to go.

    • Pat O’Brien Says:

      Good day Hurben. Don’t forget the tanglefoot wire, trip flares, and the claymores.

      • larryatcycleitalia Says:

        Steve King’s got it all figured out. His construction company is probably ready to bid on the work, doncha think?

      • Hurben Says:

        Nah, just sprinkle a few AP mines around the place & it’s all good.
        Actually, in all seriousness, the worst that I saw was when two sappers fucked up their comms while checking claymores & one was detonated while one of them was sitting behind it.
        I will never forget the screaming

        • Pat O'Brien Says:

          Claymores are a nasty piece of business. I loved how they printed “this side towards enemy” on the front like it assembly instructions on a piece of Ikea furniture. What a waste.

          On a more positive note, Roger Stone has got his stones in a Boy Scout vise. Wonder how long he will last before he turns away from the dark side of the force, if he hasn’t already. Another rat from the mob otherwise known as the white house. If there is a supreme being, Bannon will be the next one in the docket.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I’m thinking a deer on the right program — you know, calves like cantaloupes — can clear my enhanced Wall®, get back to noshing on the neighbors’ greenery. Does USADA handle this sort of thing? Or do I call ICE?

  9. Patrick O'Grady Says:

    Meanwhile, here is another part of the body altogether. I leave it to you to guess which one.

    And the Mexicans didn’t pay for it?
