Let’s build a dome over the United States

First there were calls to build a wall on the Mexican border. Now they want to defend the Canadian border. I say, let’s just build a dome over the United States!

If we built a dome then we can protect all our borders so no one can get in. It would solve all our problems. No foreigners to take our jobs, no trade deficit, it would keep out hurricanes, protect us from global warming, and keep aliens from outer space from breeding our women; an issue that the religious right is passionate about.

The way I see it if you’re going to fantasize and come up with fake solutions to fake problems, then why not go all the way? However if we are going to embrace reality then we should be looking for real solutions that will actually work.

Maybe that would be a good contract for Haliberton

We should ask Russia if they have any of the bricks from the Berlin wall so we can use them in it

It seems as if the poster believes that building a wall is a ridiculous idea. But you must realize that you can’t solve the problems within borders when more are coming all the time. It’s impossible to keep the water out of a bucket when the water is still pouring in. Oh yes, I get to use a liberal phrase…The fact of the matter is…the problem is not that they’re illegal. The problem is that they’re here, they’re poor, and they take our jobs away. Even if they were legal, (or had some kind of stupid citizen-like card), they would still be a big problem. And quit with the “but America is the land of freedom” mentality.
