So Dog, is it good or bad that Trump is breaking his promises so early?
That's a report in Politico, I'll wait to see what actually transpires before passing judgment on whether he broke his promise. My expectation is that he will push for taxing remittances to Mexico or some other method to muddy the waters and give himself political cover .
Is "political cover" a justification for breaking a promise?
Oh please...figure it out for yourself.
Your inability to answer the question is noted. Thanks for that.

"House Republicans and Donald Trump's team are coalescing around a multi-billion dollar plan to make good on the president-elect's campaign vows to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, according to top Republican lawmakers and aides.

Republican leaders, in tandem with Trump’s transition staff, are considering using a 2006 law signed by former President George W. Bush that authorized the construction of 700 miles-plus of “physical barrier” on the southern border. The law was never fully implemented and did not include a sunset provision, allowing Trump to pick up where Bush left off — with the help of new money from Congress....

...The plan is an implicit acknowledgment by Republicans and the incoming administration that Mexico will not pay for the border wall — a promise from Trump that was always viewed skeptically. Instead, American tax dollars will".

Hillary voted for those 700 miles. It's the extra three hundred that are bad and racist.


The main problem is that the border is 2K miles, not 1K.

That makes Trump's wall about 200% more stupid than a 700 mile wall.

How about a free underground high speed rail system, non stop, from the Mexican border to downtown Vancouver?

We could build it & you could become more diversified. I have heard diversity is good?

Only know what I read. We have lots of Hispanic people in our area, lots. I don't think they are classified as "White"?

They sure don't look white.

There's your problem, you only read what you want to read!
Here's your problem, you reply to Dabs. I'm trying real hard Ringo, not to reply to Dabs.

I guess those little pleasures are all you have to look forward to Troller being 81. How sad!
If you guys would just pretend he doesn't exist, he'll go away.

It may take a little while, and he'll likely start a bunch of threads to get attention.

But, eventually, he'll find some other forum to pollute with his "Gee, shucks, those niggers sure are....." crap.

Kind of hard to miss anything when folks keep quoting him. That said, nothing that's been quoted of his racist ramblings has convinced me sticking him in the ignore list was a mistake either. I reckon he'd probably have "fished out" the area had we not a steady influx of new people to piss off. *shrug*

"Other Forum"? Oh no, I like it here, great entertainment value. I don't remember saying "Those niggers sure are.... "

Like SV, you are saying I said things that I didn't say. Why do you do that?

Ah, Bent, you broke the code. When you are not catching anything it is time to:

1. Move to another area

2. Change lures

3. Troll faster or slower

4. Fish earlier or later

5. Wait for the tide to change

6. try to see what other successful fishermen are using

7. Fish deeper or shallower.

And the list goes on.

You like it here simply because you got the boot elsewhere.

Your wording is far too cute to say that ugly word but you always get that message across as clearly as if you had.

Yes, I was banned from Sailnet, "Lifetime ban", no less. Not sure whose lifetime they are talking about, mine or theirs. Their reason:

“You continually provoke, skirting the edges of SailNet rules and basic decency, with posts that disparage the intent of the forum and its rules. “

I am a Forum novice, just visited a few fishing, woodworking,& Homeowners association forums. Some were educational, but

this one in not only educational, but most entertaining. Only been here for about two years, but I like it, nice, kind folks here.
