Walls Need Gates!

Remember That Walls Need Gates, Mr. President

I’m an American and I’m staunchly in favor of controlling immigration and greatly increased border security. I can also see where a wall along the US’ southern border will help with that. At 1,954 miles in length, much of it through remote and harsh terrain, it can’t be successfully guarded without something to channel invaders and provide choke points.

Face it head on with clear eyes and a resolute demeanor; something has to be done about the approximately 500,000 illegal borders crossings from Mexico to America per year.

That being said, to paraphrase or riff upon Pres. Ronald Reagan, “Mr. Trump, build those gates.” Not all of the immigrants, illegal or not, are either bad or problematical. A plethora of these immigrants would be of great benefit America and Americans in so many beautiful ways.

I <3 Christmas Stockings

Well, it is the Christmas season and Christmas Stockings are certainly a wonderful part of of the West’s holiday traditions. 😉

I <3 Christmas Stockings

Yeah, yeah; I know. None of these beautiful women in thigh-high socks have even a hint of a Christmas theme to them. I just happen to really appreciate that particular fashion statement and the holidays gave me a great excuse to post them. But hey! Yuletide cheer is, in my experience, what you make it to be.
