    Build The Wall!
    Of course the terrain demands something different for varying ecosystems, but build the barrier NOW!

    Walls Work.
    All those America hating Democrat politicians have fences and walls surrounding their homes, and they have locks on their doors.
    American Taxpayers spend more to guard the borders of foreign countries than we do for the USA borders!

    Make America Great Again!
    The wall isn't because we hate those on the other side, but because we love those on this side.

                LOL. Just another Trump lie. Fact checkers report walls are older than wheels. And, if you think about it, they obviously are. I'm sure cavemen piled stones to make a wall long before they figured out how to make a wheel.

                Trump is such a moron. The question was never whether walls are useful. I'm very glad my house has walls, for example. The question was whether more wall at the southern border was the best solution to protecting that border. The answer to that from experts is no. We already have walls (or at least fence) where that is useful. Bill Clinton put in the first fencing BTW. But there are huge stretches of border where building walls or fences is impractical from a terrain and legal point of view (land is owned privately, for example).

                Here's another fact ignored by the Trump believers: No wall will be built right on the border, which is the middle of the Rio Grande river for much of the border. So the wall, if built, will be some distance into the US from the border (apparently up to a mile in some places). To make a claim for amnesty you must be physically in the US. So.....if the Trump wall is built it will be much easier to set foot in the US and apply for amnesty, which is what the migrants from Central America want. They simply cross the Rio Grande and camp on the Mexican side of the wall but on US soil until the Border Patrol comes through a gate and picks them up. The wall actually makes the problem Trump claims to be solving much worse.

      Per the definition of Treason as outlined here and in our Constitution any Government Elected Official by not securing our Borders and by Granting Aid to an obvious enemy and Illegal Immigrants with in our Borders are guilty of Treason! The Democrat AND Republican In Name Only Leaders in Congress are GUILTY of Treason! Time to uphold the Rule Of Law as outlined in The United States Constitution.

        Illegal immigrants are not an obvious enemy of the US in the sense required by the treason statutes. We are not at war with them or their home countries. And Congress has seen fit to make undocumented crossing of our border only a misdemeanor.

        In addition, coming to the southern border and requesting amnesty is 100 % legal. Not a crime; certainly not treason to allow it. Might be a crime to try to prevent it as Trump is doing.

        There is no reasonable argument that illegal immigration by crossing the southern border is a national emergency. To cite just one point, such crossings are currently at an historical low dating back to 1971.

        Dishonest reporting on FOX has led you astray.

    What are the money gains all of these people will lose out on by Building The Wall?
    How many will be losing kick backs from Illegal Drug Money? How many in Congress are getting any kick backs? How many Corporations are getting kick backs? How many at Federal, State and City levels are getting kick backs??
    Who really is losing money by not funding this Wall? Who are the players pushing extremely hard against the Wall?
    Once you find all of the answers above it all comes together why they do not want this Wall?
    My bet is you will find deep corruption from the Democrats to the Republicans In Name Only to major Corporations to Law Enforcement and yes the United Nations Globalists involved not just in Drugs but in Human Trafficking, Child Trafficking, Child Pornography, The Deep State and into the darkness of Satanism itself who want nothing more than to destroy our nation!
    Think I'm wrong? Follow the money trails backwards!!
    Do the research it is all out there in black and white and in full color layed out all across the internet. They put it directly in your face knowing you won't believe it can be real. That is why they are called "The Deep State".

    It is quite sad being the Left thinks of themselves as so educated and smart but they fail to remember.
    People have been calling to seal the Border and Build The Wall since the 70's!! The problem has always been soft people who think it cannot happen to them. The problem has been Politicians who refuse to listen to their Constituents. The problem has been a demographic make up of Politicians who are Globalism Minded and want no Borders. The problem has been Voters allowing the Politicians to operate freely with absolutely no threats of recall or Class Action Law Suits for incompetence and misrepresentation. There are hundreds of more problems that can be named but nothing will change until the Voters decide enough is enough and they decide to vote out every Globalist and Socialist Politician in every State who is dragging everybody into the Globalist Minded Society. Globalism does NOT work. Look at Europe in shambles look at the UK and look at Venezuela!! Those regions are the future of California and this Nation unless you the Voter make a strong stand against the Liberal Progressive Socialist's now in Elected Offices in California and in all States.

Seriously...is this a joke. Have any of you seen or know about our public schools? They are full of illegal immigrant offspring and failing fast. Our children are being held back while teaching down to illegal immigrant children. Have you needed the services of a building or trade contractor? Many come out to give you an estimate, then try to push in an illegal immigrant (no English) employed by them to do the job. Don't hire these people and report them. Do you not see any of the news where Hispanic women are having babies all over the place, in businesses, along roadways? Too uneducated and unwilling to pay for a doctor to see them. WAKE UP! Taking care of other countries uneducated people is not sustainable or fair to the people of the USA. There is much more fallout that is the end result of allowing other countries uneducated to flood into the Country.

      The example that you site is only one of many agendas of social engineering.
      In fact, there is no dead time, as far as using every opportunity to further their agenda.

      Some other examples are gays in every sitcom etc. The NWO is trying to normalize this for many reasons. One is depopulation. Gays can't multiply. And AIDS is most readily spread in gay men. Again depopulation. But also suffering. The NWO, Deep State, Illuminati thrive, like vampires, on the suffering of others. This is called loosh.

      And this is why it is so extremely aggravating when people, out of ignorance and brainwashing, criticize our president, the first one to ever take a stand against these demons. It is obvious why they do. They are still plugged into the mind control of the MSM, which is none other than the Deep State themselves.

      And everything you see on TV, movies, music etc. is all put there to deceive you.
      Much/most of Hollywood are secret transgenders. What could be more of a sinister deception than to have the masses sexually longing for the same sex, unknowing?

      The plots, themes and details of movies are predictive programming. They are getting you ready to accept the next installment of their control, whether it be vaccines(Golden Globes), micro-chips, artificial intelligence etc.

      My advice to you all, is JUST SHUT IT OFF! It can have no effect if we don't see it! Just stay in the world that is decent, true and free of their oppression.
      We outnumber them by billions. All we need to do is reject everything that they send our way.

      That would include:
      TV
      Movies
      Pop music
      Depop foods
      Tap water
      Fake science
      Fake history
      Fake religion
      Broadcasted sports
      Smart meters
      Vaccines
      GMO's
      Conventional Dentistry
      Medical doctors
      Pharmaceuticals
      Political correctness
      Agenda to disarm us
      Cigarettes
      and most of all, the Mainstream Lying Media

      To those in the know, these are ALL part of an obvious agenda.

    The uneducated people in Calaveras County were born here. Open you're eyes. Pay attention.

    A wall along the entire border is a very stupid idea.

    It was recently reported that the only reason Trump emphasized a border wall in his campaign was that his advisors were frustrated that he could not remember what his issues and his positions on those issues were. Trump could remember he was a builder so the advisors (Sam Nunberg & Roger Stone) got him to propose a wall, something that Trump the builder could remember to bring up at rallies. It was a big hit with Trump's crowds, so Trump and the GOP are now stuck with the commitment to what was originally just a memory jogger for Trump.

    From what I've seen the Hispanics working for local contractors are hardest working men on the crew. I have no idea if they are here legally or illegally, but they are definitely skilled and hard working.

    If we were smart we'd send buses across the border to get more people like that. We could probably get the farmers in the valley, and the hotel operators in Vegas and everywhere else to pay the costs.

        Sneaking across the border is a misdemeanor, not a felony.

        "Each year the Border Patrol apprehends hundreds of thousands of aliens who flagrantly violate our nation's laws by unlawfully crossing U.S. borders. Such illegal entry is a misdemeanor, and, if repeated after being deported, becomes punishable as a felony."

      Hardest working? Mexican crew working under PG&E contract for tree limb removal on my street arrived about 9am each morning and slow motion paced themselves to about a quarter to noon when they then began a three hour siesta in the trucks. After the nice nap they packed up and drove back to their HQ. I'm sure we get the expense of an 8 hour day for each and every one of these HARDEST WORKING people added to our utility rates. I watched this behavior for more than a week. I have done a lot of tree work myself and the total work done on my short little street could have been completed in a single day by honest hard working Americans !!!

        I'm in northern Sonoma County getting medical treatment @ Kaiser that Mark Twain can't provide & in my daily dog-walks I see, a family of 1/2 dozen illegals (whole family) panhandling at a stop sign @ Safeway, 7 days a week, they even bring folding chairs along with their cardboard "Help please" signs.
        They have a nice 2-3 year old BIG Chevy SUV & Aren't hurting, but this does not stop them from begging w/ the entire family.
        This is happening all over the North bay & sanctuary Counties.
        So much for "Hardest working"...

              Right! I'm sure you tried to engage them in discussion. Probably by yelling racial slurs at them.

              Many legal immigrants do not speak English. This was true in the 19th century, the early 20th century and also now.

                  LOL. So lets review your story: You see a WHOLE family of hispanic appearing people begging on the street. They can't speak English but you nonetheless stop and interview them to determine they are Hondurans. Was that conversation in English or Spanish?

                  You are upset because these beggars have a nice new expensive-looking vehicle. So is it your theory that they were able to purchase that with the proceeds of their begging? Is begging and undiscovered GREAT job that doesn't require a college degree and that allows you to be your own boss?

                  Or did you just make this whole story up by relying on your racial stereotypes and Ronald Reagan's old meme of the African American welfare queen in her Cadillac?

                  Anyone who thinks racism is dead in the US does not read thepinetree.

        I live in Arnold and I've also not been impressed by several of PG&E's crews. PG&E needs to put some supervisors in the field to check up on these guys.

        That said, I have no idea whether there are illegals on the crews or not. I would think PG&E would try hard to avoid hiring subcontractors with illegals on their crews. Further, all the crews I've seen appear to be run by non-hispanics, and I'd hold those guys responsible for productivity.

        Finally, dead trees near power lines are dangerous to take out. Careful is better than fast.

    When it comes to work on my property I wind up primarily hiring Hispanics (and I know some of them are illegals -- maybe all of them). But over the years they have always done the best work. The only time someone stole some of my equipment, it turned out to be a native born Caucasian from Calaveras. Never again.

      No one objects to some fencing, and, as you note, we've been putting it up for a long time.

      Sane and smart people object to mindless wall building that can not be practically done and will serve no good purpose.

      And we are not East Germany for God's sake. If Trump ever builds a giant concrete wall it will eventually be torn down with pieces saved as reminders of a terrible time in which our country lost its way.

      Democrats have repeatedly offered money for border security which can include some fence repair and new construction. Trump had such a deal all lined up until a few right-wing pundits shamed him to back away. We have a spineless and easily manipulated President (as Putin, Xi, Kim and Erdogan have already demonstrated).

              Conclusions
              Overall, I’d say my foray into the world of going commando left me with a sense that I can be even lazier about my laundry, as it isn’t the end of the world when I run out of panties. I also learned that when growing out your bangs, it's only possible to have one hairstyle that doesn't look horrendous (and maybe it's not this one). For going commando, I also discovered that the choice of outfit for not wearing panties is very important — I REPEAT, DO NOT GO COMMANDO IN TIGHT JEANS! My favorite aspect of this experiment, however, was not the liberation or the ease of wanking, but that if you fart whilst not wearing panties, it makes much less sound.

    If there really was an emergency-level problem at the Southern border, then Trump should be impeached for allowing it to go unaddressed during this now 25 day shutdown.

    Fortunately, there is no emergency. Not even a problem. As any sane person already knew.

        Those drugs were not walked across the border in a place where there was no wall. Most likely they were mailed in from China or carried through a normal port of entry. A wall will not stop drugs or people.

        The only reason Trump is still pushing for a wall is that he is manipulated by Limbaugh and Fox News talking heads. Trump is the weakest President in recent memory because he is easily manipulated by nearly anyone, including, of course, Putin, Xi, Kim, and Erdogan. His backbone is a wet noodle.

    Some border agents favor a wall (or really a fence) in SOME parts of the border. And fence has largely been built in those places. I have seen no reports from border agents favoring a Trump-style along the entire border. I have seen border agents showing Trump tunnels dug under walls, showing the wall was ineffective.

    I'm sure Fox has found a few Trump-supporting rank and file border agents to say they need a wall, but I'm equally sure MSNBC will find rank and file agents saying walls are stupid and unneeded. Those in a position to actually know, say no continuous wall needed. And common sense says that too.

    All experts appear to agree that much of the border is unsuitable for wall or fence geographically and legally. In Texas where most of the land is privately owned the legal battles will go on for decades. And think of the PR during those legal battles - you will have mostly Republican family farmers and ranchers being sued by Trump's federal government to take their family land by eminent domain. If I'm a Democrat running in Texas I'm going to have a very good chance to win.

      It is members of the Trump family that are headed to prison.

      There are more Trump campaign members who pleaded guilty or were convicted than in any administration in living memory. Well, except Nixon's if you count the burglars as part of the campaign.

      Another difference is that Republicans largely abandoned Nixon once it was clear he was a crook. You lemmings are still defending Trump. Why is that?

    Americans DO NOT favor a border wall. Here is a link to a recent news story pointing this out.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2019/01/11/americans-dont-want-trumps-border-wall-heres-what-they-think-should-happen-instead/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.da331cd1b5ae

    You can also just Google "Do Americans favor a border wall?" and you will find pages of hits. Most are polls taken in December or January by different organizations, and all come to the same conclusion: Americans do not favor a border wall.

    Go ahead. Make you're own search. And then stop posting lies.

The pathetic CBO has even estimated the cost of the shutdown to have cost the country over $11-billion (way more than Trumps boarder security proposal).

Money should go to fortify our Boarder Patrol Officers so they can inspect a higher number of incoming vehicles. Give them more money to help them watch our border more effectively and with updated equipment. We don't need to throw money at a wall located in an already inaccessible area. WORK ON SOLUTIONS AND COMPROMISE. Reading the comments here on the Pinetree is so very disturbing. Do you hear yourselves? Name calling, insults, temper-tantrums. Is this a microcosm of our Country's attitude toward one another? It's shameful. How sick.
