JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE HUMAN SPIRIT PREVAILS OVER MIND-NUMBING IDEOLOGY – FIVE-DOLLAR RUSTING REBAR LADDERS AND TRUMP’S COSTLY WALL   Leave a comment

EXPANSION OF COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

“Smugglers helping migrants scale Trump’s border wall ‘using $5 ladders’

“US Border Patrol has seen a rise in camouflage “hook-and-ladders” within the far south-west region of Texas since May last year, according to The El Paso Times.”

 

“El Paso’s urban stretch of border is said to be littered with the ladders, which are engineered out of rebar and match the rust brown colours of the wall.”

I love it. Human ingenuity and enterprise win.

Low cost, easily made, and completely defeating Trump’s dumb wall.

The ladders could almost provide a symbol or metaphor for all of Trump’s many fumbling efforts.

Despite reckless, continuous, and noisy self-praise, the man has made a success of almost nothing.

But what does that tell us about the nearly half of America’s people who fervently support him?

This is a country suitable to lead the world?
