    Interesting construction video deeks.

    I guess since they are using north and south form-work that they must be building the wall some small distance inside the great US of A so then they must be effectively ceding a tiny bit of the great US of A to the mexicans.

    Freedom. The first amendment is freedom of speech in the USA, They can criticize and express their views without fear of incarceration or monetary punity.
    In Thailand you will be jailed for expressing a certain view.
    In Australia you will be fined or go to jail for expressing a certain view.
    In Europe you will go to jail for a joke, or funny video, that is interperated as hate speech or be banned from entering the country.
    In China you will go to a labor camp for speaking out for free speech.
    In Hong Kong you will now be abducted and sent to China if you speak against the CCP
    In Africa you will suddenly disappear if you challenge the ruling class.
    In the Middle East you will be whipped if you are a woman out alone.

    And still some want to tear down America, Why? Because it's the only place left on earth that will let you have a different point of view? Or because in America you can express that point of view?

    The land is not ceded, they are keeping the old barriers in place that don't need to be swapped out, the old 8 foot fence stays as an extra barrier and border patrol can patrol on both sides. the useless Normandy barriers are being removed and
    the new 18 or 30 foot high wall goes in place. Its working wherever it goes up, crossings are down substantially in those areas (80-90%) from completion time. Its just too bad he had to find the way to do it himself without congress approval. it might be finished by now.

    This is going to be irony of it all when we get to see in the future just how much more the US makes in the USMCA and if the lives ruined by the drugs and jobs smuggled across the border are no longer having a toll the taxpayer. But time will tell.

    Just to be sure you can understand. Lets say 2 mexicans cant into the US to work and support their family back home. That means at least one US citizen will be off welfare and have a job and through that job will be able to pay taxes and buy shit in the US, thus contributing to the whole economy of his/her beloved USof A. Try and understand basic economics. Because this means that Mexico is paying for the wall, one way or another, they are paying.

    MOST Americans don’t even want that stupid wall built. It is a fairly dead issue now anyway.

    Yup, I have an economics degree (damn, second time I've mentioned that in 10 years) and your faux calculations are simply bizarre. Not only are they simplistic, they are wrong because you are using baby-'logic'.

    Mexico is not paying for the wall. Period.

    But none of those fat flabby American fuckers want to pick fruit and veg, work as cheap labour in construction or the services industries, so prices will shoot up across the board.

    Try and understand basic economics.

    I wonder if this record will ever be beaten, even by a two-term Republican President?

    In 1,267 days, President Trump has
    made 20,055 false or misleading claims

    By anyone?

    What is just as, if not more, frightening is that millions of people like deeks simply don't care and even applaud the tens of thousands of lies
