The Only Lame Part

The Fence(s)

The only lame part of the entire weekend was a short drive to see the monument at the border. In the last year or so, extra fencing has been added. Instead of just a 15-foot high solid wall built of old containers or train car walls, there is now a meter-high 3-strand barb-wire plus chicken-wire fence 10 yards beyond the first, and it has little placards on it so that xenophobes that helped pay for the fence can brag about their xenophobia.

"A US CITIZEN BOUGHT THIS POST
THE US GOVERNMENT SHOULD HAVE"

This brings up something important. This fence is on BLM land, right? I assume so based on the fact that the trail goes right through here, but I suppose I could be wrong. If it is public land, then am I right that the government is allowing private organizations to build fences with xenophobic shit written on it on public land?

"KEEP YOUR OWN SIDE"
I love it when stupid stuff has typos to confirm the ignorance.

"MAY GOD CONTINUE TO PROTECT AMERICA"

"THIS IS A SOVEREIGN AMERICA
I DON'T ASK FOR A JOB THEN
DON'T DO IT"

Umm, What?

"TODAY - A FENCE
TOMORROW - THE WALL!"

It'll be better in 266 days, right?
