Humpty Dumpty and Donald Trumpy: Wall Woes

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall and it didn't end well for him. Donald Trump has promised to build a wall across the US/Mexican border, and the results are likely to be equally disastrous.

After he builds his folly, he intends to evict undocumented Hispanics and others. There are approximately 11 to 12 million such folks here, and it might be a daunting task to round them up and ship them out. He assumes they will all go in an orderly manner, with no fuss or bother, and will be very cooperative in splitting up families and destroying lives. This is all part of his plan to "Make America Great Again!" Or perhaps better stated, "Make America Hate Again?" It's been a while since we have had a civil war, but this might spark one.

The U.S./Mexican border runs 1954 miles, and it is estimated that the wall will cost $20 billion to build. That's even more than the "very rich" Donald has. No worries. He assures us that Mexico will pay for it. The promised wall will be beautiful, and he states that they might even call it "The Trump Wall." I wonder what they will name the tunnels that will be excavated under it?

Many have proclaimed that if Trump is elected president, they will leave the U.S. or even the planet. Those with exit plans include Cher, Jon Stewart, and Barry Diller. In addition, approximately 200,000 have tweeted that they are out of here if Trump is victorious.

Perhaps Donald's wall isn't intended to keep people out -- maybe its true intent is to keep the rest of us in.
