The wall won’t work
I can’t help but wonder whether people realize that the wall being proposed to keep the flow of immigrants from entering illegally into the USA from south of the border is an exercise in futility and a waste of money.
It will simply provide the means by which covert attempts will proliferate. As people say, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way!”

A little respect would be nice
It is time that we need everyone to start acting like mature adults and show respect to others despite disagreement with their opinions or views. It does not matter if you are a liberal, moderate or conservative — you all have your right to opinions and views.
There was once a time in this country that Congress actually debated these views and opinions without degrading someone’s else’s opinion or view and this was done showing respect. The sooner we can return to this type of civility the better for the country.
No one in this country deserves the types of attacks we see from both liberals and conservatives. Our forefathers had very serious debates and disagreements without personal attacks.
Today Washington is so tainted with money that our elected officials are unwilling to roll up their sleeves and work to a 60-80 percent solution that leads this country forward. It is all about winning something over the other side rather than what is in the best interest of this country.
Just take a look at our financial position as a country that is so far in debt. We have seen major cities file for bankruptcy, states will soon follow and what happens when the U.S. federal government can no longer pay their bills? As a country we need to spend within our means and stop writing checks that even our grandchildren will be unable to pay.
Lets all stop and think back 30-40 years or better maybe 100 years and let those the lived then set the standard for how we should all behave today!
