The Wall: a documentary

We offer this morning “The Wall: A 2,000-mile border journey,” a short documentary fly-over of the Southern border of the U.S.A.

You can’t make this up. The topography speaks for itself.

Thanks for coming by Views from the Edge.

Playing Chicken over a Wall

indian-game-chickens-featureIn Phoenix President Trump threatened to play Chicken with Congress. If the bill to keep the federal government open for business does not include funding for the border wall he promised Mexico would pay for, he threatened to use his veto power to shut down the federal government.

The president was hawkish.

“Bully for you!” roared the crowd.

The older folks in the crowd will roar again when their Social Security checks no longer arrive.

It’s time to grow up.

Something there is that makes children love the game of Chicken, and something there is that loves a wall — unless the hawk and the wall turn out to be between a rock and a hard place: me and my Social Security benefit.
