Too dumb for words. You really need to post only when sober, assuming you ever are sober.

In the first place, you can't "make him" keep "the job." Like an indentured servant of something? That's against the law. In the second, you'd wind up spending more time and money "catching"--nice choice of words by the way; same word they used when hunting down runaway slaves back in the day--than you would in fines collected.

Needless to say, your "simple but logical" idea, which in fact is neither simple nor logical, is obnoxious on all sorts of other legal and moral levels--it smacks of fascism, frankly.

But Dude, you really need to understand how much your idiotic wall is going to cost. No way in hell that any bounties or tariffs or fines or ransom is ever going to come close to that $70 billion and $150 million a year in maintenance. Wouldn't even make a dent.

Look, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I think for your own mental health you need to understand that the toothpaste is out of the tube and the horse is out of the barn and there is no putting them back again. Your day, the day of the White Guy, Racist White Guy, is over and done.

My advice? (And it's free.) Get a grip. Live with it. And for the sake of your own health, quit obsessing over an issue that isn't all that important in the grand scheme of things.

You're welcome.

  • Create a bounty system on illegals. Tariff on Day of the Dead crap. And I suggest a heavy fine system. Catch an illegal with a job and make him keep the job but pay a wall tax. Simple but logical... more

    • Frankly, that idea is almost as dumb--and, in order to effectively implement as time-consuming and costly--as the wall itself. There is no wall that cannot be gotten over or tunneled under if people... more

            If Mexico was still part of Texas then Jose and Lupe would be headed for Oklahoma.

              Mexico was never part of Texas. Texas was part of Mexico. Good Lord! You can't even get your third-grade geography right!
