    A waste indeed. The amount of money it is supposed to cost will be through the roof!

    You guys? You and Stanislav could form a collectivist mind club.

    The wall would be for less daunting areas and I've not seen anyone but Abner call for a 'brick and mortar" wall.

    Why do I suddenly have a visualization of a tag team wrestling match? Abner and Stanislav on one side, Decimon and me again on the other.

    Ha! Just like Luchas Libres in Mexico! Who better to compete with than Stanislav. He is such a genius, he is currently working on a new masters degree. He has a PhD already,l but I guess that is not enough for this genius brain! :)

    Las Luchas libres here we come, ariba ariba! :)

    But the "less daunting areas" are already walled off. My understanding of the President's promise is to wall off the entire border.

    Yeah, it makes me wonder if it will be finished during Trump's time in office. At the rate things are going, it doesn't look like it.

    I saw one video where there were hundreds of people sitting around quietly, looking hungry, thirsty and miserable. It was hard to watch and I felt terrible for the desperate people who seemed to be all out of options.

    Then I watched another video where a crowd of angry people were throwing rocks at guards and breaking down a fence. It was hard to watch and I felt absolutely disgusted by the entitled people who seemed to think that they had the right to do and to take whatever they wanted.

    It's easy to see why there are always two, very emotionally charged, sides to the discourse surrounding illegal immigration.

    And there's the unemotional, inhumane side that paid for and organized this unfortunate raiding party.

    Conspiracy? These people with no money were organized to do this and to pay for it with what? Magic money? That's reality.

    You write an alleged quote from Gutierrez and then provide a link to a Fox news story. Neither Gutierrez nor the quote appear in the story. Also, there is nothing in the story that indicates that the caravan is "politically motivated." Care to try again?

    Bartolo Fuentes was one of the organizers. Fuentes is in league with Zelaya, Castro and Maduro.

    Is the WSJ mainstream enough for you? https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-caravan-to-nowhere-1540250858?emailToken=c3836a604adcdb26781bdf59ab5e7f08uPD7mGGhQ3pjeo1VBFOw1GYjoiYhiemOGpKKFmtyCl1uSC+aqzSUFoE63tsboyMLjHbwbMRq0jgpwrppJ+pqVQ%3D%3D&reflink=article_copyURL_share

    Sure. As long as you 1) recognize that it's an editorial (an opinion piece) and 2) recognize that you're now relying on the mainstream media to support your position.
