Immigration was the topic and Bill O'Reilly had the senior economic idiot at the Wall Street Journal, Stephen Moore, on to discuss the present state of things. The very first words out of Moore's mouth were – if you build a thirty-foot wall, they'll get a thirty-one foot ladder.
Now let's put this nonsense to rest here and now, shall we?
You're standing there at the open border: How long does it take to cross it?
Now, you're standing there at a thirty-foot wall: How long does it take to get over that with your ladder?
Not to mention that the higher the wall, the longer it takes to get over. Somebody might high jump a six foot wall, poll vault a fifteen foot one, climb the ladder for the thirty-footer, and what about a fifty-foot wall, they get shot out of a cannon?
And how do you get a pregnant woman into a cannon, anyway? Hint: It ain't like Popes in a Volkswagen, folks.
O'Reilly should have just said, "Well, why don't we build a thousand foot wall then, if the length of time doesn't get 'em, acrophobia will.
And overlooking all that, what ratio of ladders to wetbacks is optimal?
Plus, doesn't carrying the ladder slow down the trek to the border in the first place?
And do you think O'Reilly had the presence of mind to ask even one of my questions?
