How in the Heck do you spend 12-15 billion dollars on a wall that separates Mexico from America!!!!

Dear America,

Disclaimer, I am not against nor for Trump. I got my family up and voted on November 2,2016. I Voted for one of the two parties that I knew would WIN. In my opinion, to have done otherwise gave you no power and you could have honestly made better use of your time. I could go on and on with that one, but I’ll save that for another time. Also, I am in my feeling right now.

I am going to make this simple for every American. I am speaking to African, Asian, Black, Caucasian, Indian, Hispanic, Mexican and any other group that has made America their home….How could we allow OUR TAXES…OUR RESOURCES to be used to keep “illegals” out instead of fixing what is “wrong and illegal” within this country. Education, health care, infrastructure, transportation, roads, police, crime, childcare, housing and our government systems are failing. How much good could be done, in America, for the AMERICAN PEOPLE with that money?

I get Trump wants to charge a 20% tariff (bully Mexico) to offset this wall and in doing so could consequently create jobs here in the States. I wonder if anyone is actually THINKING about how much these “jobs” are going to pay.

I am not here to sway anyone one way or the other; But please, for the sake of self preservation, ask yourself how you really  feel and think about these 3 statements….Then do something about it…..

  1. America has gone on this crusade about Anti-bullying then turns around and commits that same offense with Mexico and Ford (if we are being honest).
  2.  The jobs that may or may not come back to the States don’t seem to be the type of jobs that will pay well enough to get those employed back into the middle class. Let us not forget… The assembly line is mainly a robotic system. Maybe we could make education/training  more accessible so that those “jobs” can be highly skilled and well paying.
  3. The elephant in the room is….This wall is to deter people with little to no money. This wall isn’t going to keep the criminal element out… Much like Trump, they have resources that make this “Wall” laughable at best. Seems to me, America would rather investigate, tap, catch  and imprison the guy selling a $20 bag of weed; Meanwhile, the Opium farmer waltz’s into any and all American International airports greeted by smiles and a handshake from those politicians whom had been “cooperating” from the beginning.

This is my take. I’d love to hear yours.

  1. You would be correct my dear. On all accounts,and the money could be better spent on him doing the right things to better this country — and his image. Thus turning the tide and being excepted by the people who hate him. But he’s a narcissist so…

  2. Oh it’s simple: Part of the United States was Mexico. After the Mexican-American war, Certain Mexican farmers received “land grants” as gesture of good will. Those farmers had to Marry off their daughters to a white man. Thus said white family would control the property but with a Mexican surname. Fast forward to the 1970s, the United States needed the contras and the cartel to bring cocaine from Columbia to the States (See Ollie North, Manuel Noriega) etc. This wall is a scapegoat to the “Conservative Christian” *cough code word for White supremacist” to deter Mexicans from coming to America and taking jobs from good ole boys. It’s simple scapegoat 101. And people bought into the Kool Aid.

    I hope you realize that your vote does not mean anything. Hilary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.5 million votes. We can’t be upset on a pre-determined outcome. The wall is a distraction which America not only wants but needs. Meanwhile Russia is plotting, North Korea, Isis, etc.

    I’m really loving this post though Keisha, it was very Chic and that’s no shade or pettiness to it. You said what you had to say in a classy manner.

    1. I hear what you are saying and appreciate the time you took to break it down. It is a hard learned lesson that the American people will accept the unacceptable as long as it makes them FEEL good and somewhat fits their narrative. My optimism, in what I thought it means to be an American, is fading. It saddens me to know this whole idea of playing by the rules seems to work, if you do so, ONLY when it is convenient. Seems to me, ALTERNATE TRUTH is the new AMERICAN REALITY. Guess I’d better find mine.

  3. Good post. I agree. The Wall is deeply problematic. Even on a surface level, it makes no sense. Most of the so-called illegal immigrants got here with passports … on airplanes. They are not necessarily scaling the fence like Spiderman. That is a stereotype. Realistically, they come here on visas and stay. Building a wall means nothing when they will fly over it.

    Another thing: immigrants have lower rates of crime than the native population. And crime rates have been falling for decades. The wall is a solution in search of a problem.

    I agree : that money could be better spent on stuff like … Flint water! And the Wall doesn’t address WHY migrants are coming here to begin with. The US is destroying Latin America with trade deals and occupying forces ..compelling them to come here. If we do not want migrants here, stop creating the reasons they are coming here. In other words, stop compelling them to leave their homeland to begin with. When we abolish capitalism, there will be no “need” for a wall. Nice post!

    1. Well said..It is sad, but Hate has always overshadowed the “Why”. Why seems to provoke too much thought, which comes with a certain power that some people may feel compelled to exercise. With that,it is no secret that those that have the power insist on keeping the thoughts of others to a minimum. This is why Hate works… It’s an emotion, and when people are emotional they usually are unable to think clearly. You are right Brother Darryl..if really want a solution we need to start addressing the “why”. Thanks for the insight.

      1. Great point! Heaven forbid people think clearly – critical thought is a weapon of mass destruction. We need to be dumbed down with reality TV shows and believing in boogeymen like Islamic terrorists so we can really avoid the “why”. Nice to finally “meet” you!
