Those incredible fools in Washington, and elsewhere, are spending billions of your dollars to build a fence along the Mexican border from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.
Incredible fools is almost too kind!! Janet said it clearly four years ago, i.e., "Show me a twenty foot fence and I will show you a twenty-one foot ladder".
That is why this one paragraph in this Sunday's New York Times jumped off the page. It says everything that needs to be said. Here it is.
Michael Braun, the former chief of operations for the D.E.A., told me a
story about the construction of a high-tech fence along a stretch of
border in Arizona. “They erect this fence,” he said, “only to go out
there a few days later and discover that these guys have a catapult, and
they’re flinging hundred-pound bales of marijuana over to the other
side.” He paused and looked at me for a second. “A catapult,” he
repeated. “We’ve got the best fence money can buy, and they counter us
with a 2,500-year-old technology.”
