Every dollar the fund goes up, a conservative (somewhere) loses a million brains cells. Soon they will be as dumb as rocks. I guess that's an insult to rocks.

FIFY

Ever notice how our friendly neighborhood Trump Haters can't stand staying on topic?

It was your fellow Trump lovers that went off topic; but like Trump, you'll just deny.

Nonsense, post #3 is a fellow conservative (certainly not a liberal) stating a different point of view....it was your fellow Trump supporters that went off topic....but again, you all live in that world of alternate reality. You want nothing but yes men in your political diatribes, and for the most part that's what you have.

I think Rusty should donate whatever he can afford ($1.00) and be done with.
Come out of the closet already, life should be easier after that.

I didn't say "liberal".
I said " Trump Hater".
Seem to have proven my point.

It's called "history". By the way, the Dow & Trump's economy is crashing with the worst Christmas Eve loses in history! 21,792.20 −653.17 (2.91%). Trillions lost! This month is currently on track to end as the worst December since the Great Depression. We'll be back to 18,000 or less which is what Lying Trump inherited! What a great idea shutting down the government, Trump! Merry Christmas Trumpsters!

You worrying about a wall is like having your house a blaze on fire, and worried about the picket fence to keep your neighbors out.

Please provide the historical points by which you equated the desire for a boarder wall in the US and the Berlin Wall.

Please provide a single economic indicator that is in the negative besides the market?

Donations have already dramatically slowed. I said at first that I'd be surprised if it hit $100mil or 10% of the goal but as time goes on it looks like it wont even make it to 5%.

If it passes $22M it will be the largest GFM ever.
It has already been one of the fastest to grow.

I enjoy reading the detractors rants.

"It's not big enough"
"It is only a scam"
"No one really wants the wall"
Blah, Blah, Blah!

So we should let our neighbors pillage our house as it's burning down by that analogy lol ok

And Wall st has almost zero connection to how the average person is doing. The majority of Americans don't own any stock. The majority of Americans do want a wall though. It's one of the reasons Trump was elected.

Really? No connection? You jest! Since when....list proof. Fact: most Americans have 401k's which are taking major hits! Their retirement accounts being wiped out! Tens of thousands Americans losing jobs, including auto workers....Lordstown completely shut down. Next year will be brutal for Americans.

Your house is burn't down....while you wonder around trying to raise money for your fence...nothing to pillage!

Explain this one. Tariffs may (or may not) slow the economy, but they are not an indicator.

Again, not an indicator.

Neat. Still wont come close to doing anything in the grand scheme of things. $22m is good for about 1 mile of wall. Yeah, that'll stop them.

Blah, Blah, Blah!
"It's not big enouogh" -- What is this, 3rd-15th century China? The Great Wall is a tourist attraction that people climb and walk all over today for a reason... It's a dead technology that eventually failed for stopping invasions. The wall is planned to be 40ft high and 10ft deep. Last I checked tunnels are deeper, ladders are higher, and stairs are easy to build.
"It's only a scam" -- Are you referring to the wall or the gofundme? Please show where I suggested either of those things are a scam as clearly I am the "detractor."
"No one really wants the wall" -- Again, show me where I said that? People do want the wall... Dumb idiots who think a wall is the solution to the immigration problem on the southern border.

While you enjoy watching the "detractors," I love watching the hard headed far far righties ride the stubborn train as long as they can with this knowing very well that the wall isn't a good solution but just stick to their guns because they know it riles people up and gets a reaction. How many times have you said it yourself that you can get under or over a wall? Give me a few shovels, a handful of people, and the cover of darkness and I'll show you what a multi-billion dollar waste looks like.

I have yet to "detract" from border security though. Increased tech such as cameras with IR capabilities (you know, new stuff, not 4th century China stuff) and an increase in human presence aka CBP (What's that? More jobs? I feel like that's something politicians always strive for and is usually a top 3 priority in their campaign messages regardless of party) and you have solution that is more bipartisan than a wall and likely to succeed. CBP is undermanned and underfunded. Fix that.

Nothing will ever stop 100% of people from getting in. Putting up a wall is just going to show that and now we have a fancy wall that requires expensive maintenance AND still have an immigration problem.

And once again, I do believe the gofundme does serve a positive purpose. It really does show how much of a desire there is to improve our border security. A majority of people in this country want to see a more secure border. We would just like to see a more sensible option on the table.

Try again.

Also - jobs are up, unemployment is down, wages are up, what are you smoking? The CNN pipe that has solely focused on a rough month for the market, that's what.

How out of touch are you? Most Americans don't have 401k's. As a matter of fact, the majority of Americans would have to take out a loan if they incurred a surprise expense of over $400. Look it up.

And if there is nothing here anyone else wants why are caravans lining up to siege our borders?
