Why is there a fight over a wall? It can’t be the money. America just bought two more aircraft carriers at $7-10 billion each, and if they are like the last one, they will arrive broken and unfixable. It isn’t just that, $5 or $10 billion for a wall? Reagan spent $2.5 trillion on a missile defense system and, lo and behold, were one to believe the popular narrative of 9/11, fat and slow airliners hijacked and flown by illiterates with box cutters only narrowly escaped killing up to 40,000 Americans while the Pentagon, with its trillion dollar plus plus plus missile system was helpless.
