      NBC NEWS:  President Donald Trump has repeatedly advocated for a steel slat design for his border wall, which he described as “absolutely critical to border security” in his Oval Office address to the nation Tuesday. But Department of Homeland Security testing of a steel slat prototype proved it could be cut through with a saw, according to a report by DHS.

      A photo exclusively obtained by NBC News shows the results of the test after military and Border Patrol personnel were instructed to attempt to destroy the barriers with common tools.

      After looking at the “Big deal” wall I had to chuckle. I’ve got a Dewalt portable steel cutting saw (in my garage) that would cut through that thing in 6 minutes..with a space large enough for a very large man to go through.  Yep, even one of those Terrorists!

      cutting costs? Some steel is made hard enough that a saw won’t cut it. It costs more, though.

      A torch would cut most steel, unless it’s stainless, costs even more and you can cut it with a saw.

      So, what to do…maybe invest it in health care instead of the grifter contractors normally chosen for these jobs.

      And ladders ARE cheap as is rope. Better yet, stairs. With some kind of wall, the border patrol can’t stop building things next to it on the other side.

      Cheap crap, just like everything associated with Tangerine Wankmaggot.

      As such, it is consistent with American Exceptionalism.

      National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more nationalism.
