    Looks like money decently spent. If the topic wasn't such a ridiculous political football (no need to hype, really, as there's been bipartisan agreement on the need for increased "border security" for decades EXCEPT NOW the left IS AGAINST the increased border security that they've always BEEN FOR because Trump is for it, and they're afraid Trump has the smarts, and wherewithal to actually make it happen), that money wouldn't have been spent.

    I've voted for three Democrats in my lifetime for President. Listening to the hypocrisy of Pelosi and Schumer last night after Trump's address, I may never vote for another one again.

    No more Kool Aid for Kenny.

    True that, Paula. That I assisted three Democrats into the Oval Office is enough. No more liberal Kool-Aid for me. I've gotten too sensible in my old age. Common sense is common sense. That Pelosi and Schumer have advocated in the past for increased border security (including protective barriers of different sorts) is not in question. That they are now doing what they're doing simply so Trump won't be credited for getting something positive done that they've long wanted to do, but lacked that common-sense, business oriented wherewithal to get done is PATHETIC.
