This post will probably be a little silly, but every time anyone talks with me, I promote Trump and the subject of the Wall came up this morning. I hadn't heard this before but in some other venue, they were discussing using billboards on the Wall, which would bring in money to support it.

I thought that was an interesting idea although I still support charging a fee at the "big door" in order to pass. I think when someone has a truckload of tomatoes bringing them in from south of the border, they will be very negotiable about paying a fee to get those tomatoes to the US side of the Wall.

Our side would have advertising of what to see and do south of the border and the south side would feature promotions from advertisers on our side of the border.

I like "creativity"!

Billboards only work in high traffic areas. Who is going to pay to advertise in the middle of the desert?

I think billboards would look tacky.

Have you seen some of the neighborhoods heavy in illegal aliens? I am a "whatever it takes to get the job done" person when it comes to illegal aliens. We are up to our ears in them here. Also, I just learned why I hear roosters crowing here when chickens aren't allowed.

If the imaginary wall ever did get built, I wouldn't be surprised if it said

TRUMP

In big gold letters every half mile.
