That's an orignal lie .... that Greece was bankrupted by immigrants.

I think the Greeks managed to beggar themselves all on their own, by rampant corruption mostly. And, yes, they were assisted by greedy bankers.
Those are but facts and details, Owed. Don't let them deprive from a good narrative, even if it is false.

Mexican sunshine!

That's American sunshine God damn.
Brilliant Trump notion ... stick solar panels on the wall and it will pay for itself.

Except that the technology has not been developed for a linear solar farm ... it will boost the costs significantly and may never repay itself.

Where are the communities that would use the electricity? Add in the transmission costs from a massive linear solar set-up .... someone should have told the President to cost his idea first, he is supposed to be a businessman, after all.

Truth never bothers me. Lies do . And the multicult pro mass immigration groups constantly lie and twist the narrative to suit themselves . Hence you start blaming the Greeks because you don't have their best interests at heart .
If the Greeks are drowning , you don't lecture them about how they should have learned to swim . You don't even throw them a life preserver . Your sort throws them an anchor.
So whatever the Greeks do they are screwed now . Sending Greeks immigrants from less fiscally responsible countries while Greece is drowning is the equivalent of throwing Greece an anchor instead of a life raft. If you throw a drowning man an anchor you have no business lecturing anyone .

He's been in office give or take for 6 months now, nothing much has changed but to be fair this is a groundworks period. I wonder how many of his outlandish policies will be delivered in 3 and half more years?


Maybe building the wall was a metaphor?

shutting down the government to build the border wall actually walks back Trump’s repeated promise to force the Mexican government to pay for the construction costs associated with the border wall.
On his campaign page that has since been deleted, Trump’s immigration plan claimed he would make Mexico pay by exerting economic pressure like impounding remittance payments. “In short, the Mexican government has taken the United States to the cleaners,” Trump’s campaign plan indicated. “They are responsible for this problem, and they must help pay to clean it up.”
As recently as three days ago, at the G20 summit of world leaders, Trump said he “absolutely” expects Mexico to pay for the wall.
It’s not entirely clear why the president’s border wall is necessary. Realistically, roughly 700 miles of a physical barrier was already completed under his predecessor and has served as an adequate deterrent. What’s more, a majority of Americans, including those living in border states, oppose funding the president’s border wall.

They're still explaining the concept of metaphor.

To be fair, his business experience has largely consisted of letting other people pay the bills.

Mexicans climbing over it could recharge their phones at a steep unit rate.

The success of the Hungarian fence in reducing monthly illegal immigration to the low hundreds illustrates walls work.
The Hungarian fence isn't 1000's of KM long and isn't cutting across ranch holdings etc in Texas, Arizona etc where folks have guns and rights they hold tight to...
