#3 The left doesn't want drilling in the remote wilderness because an animal might be inconvenienced. The left does not want a fence through the desert where nobody ever went before because it may interfere with a bunny.
Then, why don't they tear down their houses, rip up their streets and live in a tree ?
Oh, forgot about the birdies.

#5 better not involve repair - I want 370 miles of spanking new razor-frigging-wire fence! Maintenance of existing is already a given

#6 So we’re way behind, in terms of the training and production of people

Well, we've seen Mrs. T., I can sympathize.

#7 This J-K has more flip-flops than a FPGA.

#10 Isn't there some kind of rule that when you inspire a pop culture catch-phrase or become a parody of yourself that your 15 minutes are pretty much over? And no, you can't become President. Ever.

As for the J-K flip-flop joke, that gets my vote for Nerd Pun 'o the Week.

#13 Trying to read this jerk's sentences, which often tend to be ponderous, bloated, and indirect, and which qualify each qualifying clause, which some people seem to think it makes him seem thoughtful and judicious, but I think makes him seem like a lead-shoed tap dancer - something that Clinton could do very well - makes my head hurt.

#14 Interesting the gov projects $3 million / mile of border barriers. Are they planning to pave the border? Yet Minutemen Project are building sections now at a projected 1/4 the cost. They should bid for the contract and make a killing in the process.

#15 those are three fences - parallel with concertina wire tops and level driveable dirt or dg between. $3M seems high until you take into acount topography and maintenance contracts (usually included)

#16 The Minutemen fence has 2 vehicle ditches, 2 fences, 2 concertina wire varriers and a dirt road in the middle. Not sure 1 extra fence (not known if ditches and concertina are included) and maintenance contract are worth 4 times the money.

Border barrier designs, build and maintenance need to be up for open bid and those with an interest in enforcing our sovereignity need to bid.

#17 What happens to a wetback who either cuts through the wire or tunnels under the wire ?

#18 Flip Flopper extraordinaire
His position still up in the air
As Border Guards watch
The Fence caught in his crotch
And the wetbacks stampeding through there

#19 JIm Bohannon had a guest on his radio show [John Van Horn?] whom had authored a book on Hillary - the author warns that Hillary may run wid John Kerry, whom Van Horn describes as a de facto "flip-flopper" who has done little iff anything for his state during his tenure and is one of the worst flippys in Congress. Anyhoo, Van Horn warns that if Hillary becomes POTUS, she is likely to empahsize the UNITED NATIONS agenda over America's. * Its not Socialism or Communism, but "anti-Fascism" - its NOT anti-American Global Government/OWG or Socialist-Commie World Order, but "the United Nations", or the "World Community", etal. feel-good treason and deception.
