So we will keep those evil kinder eggs coming unless you stop the flow or just do not swallow the plastic egg inside the chocolate egg that says it in a large bright warning that it is a chocking hazard parents should make sure all children 6-12 are supervised and not got to give it to children under 6 and that there is a toy in a bright plastic egg inside the hollow milk chocolate egg.

If middle age adults are dying from kinder eggs at a epidemic rate that it is banned and criminal offense to bring them back then parents with kids may have smuggled kinder eggs across and not even know it is illegal punishable offense yet cocaine meth and designer drugs come into Canada from the Mexican border and they drive up north through ours and kinder eggs from Canada are a problem.

Yet hundreds of kilos of meth, cocaine, designer drugs and heroin are getting through both our borders but the eggs from Canada are being cracked down on cause you know milk chocolate sold in a corner store with a toy inside is almost as bad as Meth or PCP.

I mean my parents used to buy me them so life is hard in Canada Eh!

So Survived a kinder egg youth and moved on to Coffee so it was a gateway drug and well my parents were terrible for buying me those and the little toy you put together is terrible if you do not die from the plastic egg that holds it.

But clearly a fence is needed and to stop this epidemic and a massive build up of border patrol agents in up-armoured HUMMVEES latest version of kinder egg finding Blackhawk helicopters and many thousands of drones and it begins to look like you guys are the ones in a prison.

since the Atlantic and Pacific ocean and gulf of Mexico are natural obstacles that make it hard to escape you have so much freedom that you had to contain it and and cannot leave or without a valid passport cannot get back as it is now..

You guys are getting really weird with the attempted soda limits to kinder eggs getting people prison sentences sand you do not see that it seems you are not becoming more free if a super sized soda and milk chocolate eggs are a threat the state and federal governments need to protect you from such things is odd.

odd this is not an issue in Canada either but we have issues also up here but what is which all the loss of freedom down there or does freedom mean banning and controlling what you eat what you drink and how the size you can have and if were socialists the you guys are Turning into NK.

Well NK in this case has Nuclear missiles and the most powerful military in the word that if you invaded us we would be wnder wahtsd going pmn a dn go back to what we were doing

I would ask you too get the M1A2 Abrams to shoots a flame out the back and give the thumbs up and be kind of deaf after but not everyday do we see JT6 jet turbines tanks.

The 15 mile fence at San Deigo CA cost around 1 million per mile.

That was in a urban area with all supplies close to hand.

Not to mention most of the land on the border is private property.

The fence is not build right on the "property line"....it is built 100 to 500 ft from the border cutting off ranchers land.

Logistics, cost
Hmmm huge taxpayer burden while trampling property rights at the same time, sounds like a plan conservatives and liberals should get behind.
God bless amerika

Not really. Stationing troops would be against the constitution unless congress declared martial law. We wouldn't want to stomp on the constitution just to whack a mole a few Mexicans now would we?

Two points it is.


I don't think our borders are any more or less secure than in the last 100 years. These things are cyclical, depending on the times. I sometimes think that there is a faction that wants to turn our country into "Fortress America". I honestly think there are other ways to deal with the entire situation.

You are right about bringing our troops home. As a long ago veteran, I wish there were none subjected to war and killing.

Ask that question in the Illegal Immigration section, and the common answer would be "yes"...

Well said. I was just thinking, Mexico hasn't been this poor for that long. They have hit tough times. In the greater picture, a fortress wall might have to be taken down in the not so distant future.

Plus aren't we trapping ourselves in, under such a situation? You'd think militia folks would use that angle.
