No wall is good unless defended. I mean with armed Military with orders to shoot to k!ll.
Building a wall without on the spot enforcement of deterrence is a waste of resources. Either you are serious about keeping out people without screening them first (to avoid immediate entitlements) or you are not serious about it.
Ask the former East Germans about how to build a fence/wall and ensure compliance from would-be interlopers.
The big difference, that must be pointed out here, is that East Germany built a wall to people in...we want a wall to keep people out. Purchase a strip a mile wide from the border, turn it over to the military, and put a brigade of MPs down there patrolling it. Making it federal property avoids the Posse Comitatus issue. Leave legitimate border crossing stations manned by Border Patrol. Problem solved.

I’ll take a CEO/Entrepreneur, Military Leader, Governor over a petty government functionary (Congressman, Senator, etc. who only know “rule by committee think”) any day.
What makes voters think that a person with no Executive Leadership Experience, a person who has never been in charge of, held accountable or responsible for anyone or anything, can lead a nation of 320 million as well as the rest of the free world?

If things are so bad here, if people are starving, why are they not emigrating to a country where they can do better, where their job skills are needed? Why not learn to speak Mandarin and move to China and get a job? Even wild buffalo move to a new pasture when they are hungry. Why are Americans so lazy to move and become self sufficient? I do not get it.

Listen up NonLibInOregon and all those who “like” your comment!!!!
Only a moron would vote for “senator” Cruz or any other petty government functionary who knows only “rule by committe think”.
Such people (former community organizers included) have no EXECUTIVE LEVEL LEADERSHIP experience. What makes you or anyone else believe that a person who has never been solely responsible and accountable for the success or failure of an entity, who have never led a group of 12 people, believe that such an untested person can lead a nation of 320 million as well as set the tone for the rest of the free world?
Former Governors, Military Leaders, Entrepreneurs and CEO’s are the only people who should even be allowed to run for POTUS. These people have grappled with issues that only an Executive Leader deals with such as: Granting or denying a Stay of Execution (ultimate decision regarding life and death), leading troops in combat, growing a business, developing subordinates (hire, teach, coach, train, reprimand, reward, promote, terminated, etc.), exercising control through subordinates by ensuring they understand YOUR vision while holding THEM accountable. These are the skills a POTUS needs.
Being a former Senator, who cannot make sole, unilateral decisions, who cannot be fired on the spot, is not a person qualified to be POTUS.
Raise your standards people. Idiot Americans are electing former community organizers and former secretaries of state to become POTUS. Wake up!!!
dumbest comment ever..
Trump is an inarticulate narcissistic sociopath aka a Liberal/Progressive..

You want a fence around the White House or a Wall at the Mexican border that works? Easy. You must man each with Soldiers and .50 M-2 Machine guns with instructions to engage at will, the wall or fence is now immediately 100 percent successful.
A fence or wall without enforcement is a waste of money and resources….Ask the East Germans how to build a wall or fence and make it work…1961.
In my opinion, if you are not willing to shoot those who will cross your barrier, do not erect one inf the first place.

I have tried a few churches in my area in the last few years. In addition to the “feel good message”, they spend more time reading notes about internal church projects and internal church ministries (youth group, singles group, etc.) than they do preaching (they do not pause for you to open your Bible to follow along because you don’t need to know where passages are in the Bible, and THEY want to be the authority (sounds like Big Government to me).
Teaching The Word is no longer conducted. (I attended a Pentecostal Church headed by Dr. Lester Sumrall, he would reach on a topic such as “Was Mary a Virgiin?”, arguing with himself about the original meaning of the word “V” possibly meaning a young married woman without child…near the end of the sermon as you expected him to reveal a definitive answer he would say “it doesn’t matter what the “V” word means, that he will believe in Jesus Christ and ask Jesus himself what the scripture meant when they meet face to face!”
Also, too many churches have a “drummer” in a box and if you cannot simultaneously sing four notes on each syllable of each word in each song, you are not worthy to sing along with the Praise and Worship at the beginning of service.

I like this plan…Finally we will get the poor and the criminals who exist on an underground economy to PAY SOME DAMN TAXES..because we know these people all purchase guns legally. These people get the same amount of National Security that I get, yet pay little taxes..such people should not even be allowed to vote…but I digress.
If you are white, have a pen!s and a job and are law abiding,….you are funding EVERYTHING in this nation..no free “friends of the court” for divorce if you have a p3n!s….etc, etc….

At least Trump has Executive Leadership experience…unlike mere Senators (who only know “rule by committee” such as Cruz, Rubio..etc.). Only Governors, Military Leaders and CEO’s/Entrepreneurs or others with successfully demonstrated and measurable Executive Leadership experience should be considered by any voter…petty government functionaries below the level of POTUS (unless they have be a Governor) should be allowed to run.
 March 29, 2016 at 1:53pm
Rush made a great point about this issue, “born rich” as mentioned here by AbrahamsSheepdawg or actually I believe, given some money by his Father. Anyhow, Rush said something about idiots inheriting money or winning the lotter only to be broke later. Getting money does not make a person smarter, it does not mean they will not waste the money, shoot it up their arm, snort it, or drink it…..
The point is, Trump may have started with a modest sum of wealth but not only held on to, he amassed even more….why do so many people fear those who are successful in life? Do you want a loser leading a nation of 320 million people?
Personally, I do not even want former Senators running for let alone being elected POTUS…Executive Leadership Experience should be on the top of every voters list. If a person has only ruled by committee and never been in charge of anything…what qualifies them to lead a nation of 320 million people. The only people who should even be allowed to run for POTUS are: former Governors, former Military Leaders and CEO’s/Entrepreneurs.

Let me break this down to you so even you can understand why I am supporting Trump.
1. Only an idiot would vote for a person with no Executive Leadership Experience, to lead a nation of 320 million who has not led so much as a Cub Scout den.
2. Former Senators, Members of the House, Secretaries of State and other petty government functionaries who know only how to rule by committee, who know not the sweet taste of success based on solely made, autonomous, unilateral decisions to guide an endeavor should not even be allowed to run for POTUS, and only idiot voters would vote for them.
3. Personnel deserving of votes for POTUS: former Governors who have made decisions, enacted legislation through Executive Order and wrestled with life and death issues such as Stays of Execution; Military Leaders; CEO’s and Entrepreneurs.
4. You are welcome for the enlightenment.

Here is how to fix this:
Trump should be charging $100 per person to attend his rallies (how many people pay more than that for tickets to see an entertainer?..I just spent $250 to see Garth Brooks).
Now as a paying attendee, if someone interferes with my right to a reasonable expectation of enjoying a “paid event”, I can knock the crap out of them, fully justified.
By charging $100, most of the off-the-street riff-raff will not attend and the professional agitators who do pay to enter will at least be “donating” money to Trumps effort.
Mr. Trump could graciously donate all the proceeds to charity, now my ticket is tax deductible….a win/win for all.
Even at a free rally, why does not the media speak up for MY RIGHT to a reasonable expectation of enjoying listening to someone I want to hear.
…at the Garth Brooks concert I had to ask a person next to me who was singing obnoxiously to stop it….I told her I paid to hear Garth Brooks, no one is paying to listen to you..so shut up. Most people, out of fear, will do as you direct because they are not used to being told what to do….too many snowflakes out there.
Here is the problem with your theory. Everyone acts like this is a few young people doing these protests in reaction to Trumps speech. There is a coordinated effort by Bill Ayers and those that support him to set these young people up at these events. They would pay the fee for them to show up. If you think you have seen problems with Trumps rallies wait for the Republican Convention. They will be infiltrating and shutting it down as often as possible. The leaders behind this are no different than Islamic Imams. Go sacrifice yourself for the great cause.
Hill Clintons’s tickets were $500.00 and BLM protestors PAID to get to her

I attended the Trump Rally in Fayetteville, NC on Wednesday 09MAR2016. There were many protesters being ejected…fortunately for them, they were not sitting near me. Do I not have a right to a reasonable expectation of being able to listen to someone at a venue I selected to attend, without distraction from riff-raff?
Mr. Trump, here is how to reduce the number of protesters (though I know that the protesters get coverage from the MSM who must mention your name when showing the protesters, thus, free advertising). Start charging $100 per person to get in..even if the “professional protesters” cannot afford the ticket, their “handlers” will pay their way, thus helping to fund your campaign by offsetting some of the cost of renting the venue…a win, win!!! To make it more stringent, attendees could be required to show a voter registration card for either Republican or Independent….as there is no reason to be addressing non-voters…..thus denying entrance to registered democrats (people who will never vote for Trump anyhow, thus should not be attending the Trump Rallyies).
I paid over $250 each for two tickets to see Garth Brooks last night in Raleigh…..I suspect most Trump supporters would be glad to pay an entrance fee of $100 helping Trump to fund his effort…AND….not having to listen to riff-raff.
Trump, by poking people in the eye (setting up a rally by a Capitalist in Chicago of all places), we learn who our enemies are….too bad the MSM does not play this lack of decorum up more. Certain people are revealing how poorly they were raised.

Donald, please quit trying to talk to the animals, the 47 percent who pay no Federal Taxes (yet enjoy the safety of National Security and the benefits of groceries being delivered to their neighborhoods via a great Federal Highway infrastructure), it upsets them, and in the big scheme of things, as “takers”, they deserve no consideration from those of us who do pay taxes.
I pay no Federal taxes, and I make $87,000 per year. I also have three kids and a wife that does not work, so I wind up virtually getting back everything I paid in. All I do is use Turbotax premier online, and it goes into my employer and fills out my W-2 automatically, and to Vanguard where I have my IRA and brokerage account. I just got $9000 back from Feds and $3000 back from state. I actually marvel at that. Personally, I think everyone should pay 10%. Am I going to send money back? Hell no, especially not when I see a bunch of nogs will just get it in their welfare check. I just follow the law that is out there, and pay whatever they tell me to pay.
Actually they don't get grocery's to their neighborhood.s.. The store chains won't open stores their due to thief.

I was a member of the 10,000 audience at the Trump rally in Fayetteville, NC this week.
When does MY right to a reasonable expectation of going to public event and enjoy the message/speaker I expect to hear take effect? Why must I suffer protesters disrupting my enjoyment of the event?
Can I walk in to a black church on Sunday and stand up and shout obscenities? Can I attend a Mrs. Clinton event and stand up and shout obscenities? Sure, but why would I?….I was raised better than that, it is impolite to disrupt an event I did not pay to host. This type of thinking is why we Republicans are not being successful at winning anymore because we are too polite and too timid to tell others to shut up or leave.
 March 11, 2016 at 3:03pm
As a Capitalist, Trump would of course manufacture goods where he can get the best deal (taxes and wages…which can be “incentivized” by a U.S. government to be more favorable)….to make more money…that is what a Capitalist does…
Now, if we had politicians who understood that they have the power to “incentivize” businesses to stay or return to the U.S., we would be in much better shape as a nation with respect to jobs and the economy.
So, Trump taking advantage of the situation is fine, but it's also fine to criticize other corporations for doing THE EXACT SAME THING Trump is doing?????
What flipping universe am I in?
You excuse Trump doing this, and cheer like hell when Trump bashes Carrier for doing the exact same thing.
I swear, people have lost their minds.

Of the remaining viable candidates, Trump, Rubio and Cruz…who has demonstrated Executive Leadership experience?…hint…it starts with a “T”….
Petty government functionaries such as mere former Senators, Members of the House, Secretaries of State or ilk such as Community Organizers (a job title I never heard until 2007…but I digress)…who know only rule by committee, who have never been allowed to make autonomous, unilateral decisions to guide an endeavor, who cannot be terminated on the spot for failure should have the decency to know they are not qualified to lead a nation of 320 million.
Only idiots would for someone to lead a nation of 320 million who have no Executive Leadership Experience, and have never been in charge of anything.
People who we should vote for: former Governors, former Military Leaders, Entrepreneurs and CEO’s…..everyone else need not apply.
Tell Cruz and Rubio to run a State for a few years, then run for POTUS….stupid voters…..

I was at the Trump rally in Fayetteville, NC on Wednesday 08MAR2016. There were about a dozen protesters ejected by the authorities.
Where does my right of reasonable expectations to enjoy a public event I attend without disruption from protestors?….when I say it ends! Had one of the protesters been near me I would have put my hands on them and pushed them back into their seat until the authorities grabbed them.
Trump plays the protesters off well, he says it is the only time the TV cameras pan around and show how large the audience is. (I would not be surprised if Trump is paying people to protest as he gets free advertising on the MSM news outlets as they cover the protesters for than they cover the event…if Trump is supporting he protesters he continues to prove that he is a marketing/media genius, if not, he still gets a big bang for the buck with respect to advertising).
Why are Republicans not out protesting at Mrs. Clinton’s events?…because we have a sense of decorum as to how to behave in public….OR the MSM is not reporting on the protesters, running interference for the poor helpless female.

Recently retired Army Veteran here, served 26 years, four combat deployments since 9-11 as a Paratrooper in the 82nd…..Electronic Maintenance Chief.
Did Muslim Extremists sign the Geneva and Hague Conventions?
Is there a Repatriation of POW’s upon cessation of hostilities agreement? (hard to accept the remains of decapitated corpses).
Are the provisions for the Red Cross to visit POW’s held in captivity by the Muslim Extremist Terrorists?
Do Muslim Extremist Terrorists use civilians as shield?
In WW-II ow many German civilians and military personnel did we have to k!ll to force their leader to commit suicide and defeat their military?
In WW-II how many Japanese civilians and military personnel did we have to k!ll to force their leaders to publicly sign documents of surrender?
When was the last time America won a war? (hint, see the two previous questions, since we abandoned these proven tactics, we have not won a war).
After answering all theses questions, I always wondered why American Forces had to adhere to “Escalation of Force” and “Rules of Engagement” guidelines (sure, to win the hearts and minds of people who are unwilling to extricate themselves from tyranny, and to maintain a positive world-wide public relations gambit).
Do not tell me you cannot k!ll an ideal, you just have to k!ll enough of the right people….also, we must be willing to k!ll them wherever they are, wherever our intelligence leads us, regardless of borders.
I have to say I agree with what you wrote. And Kudos to you for not making it to broad by using "Extremist"
Outstanding comment ck. I mean it.
How many more people will we let them murder before we listen to brave soldiers such as yourself? Give them notice that where ever we find them we will kill them. If the choose to hide behind their families, the it’s on them. They were warned. War is h^ll.
