Tubularsock has been busy with planning the New Trump Wall that isn’t and therein lies the beauty.


You see a show down is really a waste of time and to carry it on is just boring to we political junkies.


So here is a foolproof plan and the cost is negligible.


You see Trump himself has solved the problem and all it will take is for the Democrats to accept the solution and even praise Donnie for his brilliance. Ok, that my be overstating the outcome but Tubularsock’s plan IS brilliant, foolproof, and fact free!



Donnie, regardless of reality, has been repeating that his Wall is being worked on and will be completed right now.


He has stated that he will not wait for committees to work through all this mess and that he is having the wall built NOW.


(an aside: in the real world NOTHING has been done at the border except some fence repair but with the exception of a few hundred thousand dollars for several prototypes of possible wall types NOTHING has been done. Or a clearer way of saying this, NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE IN TERMS OF WALL BUILDING AT THE BORDER, NOTHING!)


So Donnie keeps saying that the wall IS BEING BUILT right now but there IS NO WALL.


Enough already!


The Tubularsock Solution (and don’t thank me now):


The Democrats proclaim that the Trump Wall has been completed.


Trump will praise himself that he has accomplished the impossible and that NO OTHER president in the history of the United States has EVER completed such a BIGLY wall!


The Trumpites will BELIEVE because they lack intelligence and FOX will praise Trump’s fortitude. And really, who ever goes to the the border anyway? So it’s all good.


And everything is safe and sane in Mudville.



Mission Accomplished. If you accept this mission proceed. This message will self destruct in five seconds. Good luck.

The ONLY national emergency we have is OrangeTweet and that is what makes all this so clear.
And some people are even waking up.

Great suggestion TS!
If we just let Trump, Sara, and Kellyanne keep telling everyone that the wall is built, they will believe it and all will be well. The base will believe anything as long as Trump and Fox tell them it is true.
No Collusion, No Collusion!

 Trump will declare a national emergency soon before there's another shutdown and keep his promise for a wall!

Tube,  I don't believe the Trump minions are playing naive and stupid . They are just unable to accept the continued  domination of the oppressive policies of the establishment status quo. The wall should be a given. Just like the yellow vest's in France Trump's base is not going away. The one thing Trump has going for him is that he has painted the illusion that he is not part of the establishment status quo.

It is a sad state of the U.S. that the so called deplorables' are being treated as nothing more than an expense to be ignored. The fact that Trump is "occasionally totally full of shit" has little to do with this. The continued distraction from the real issues is all part of the master plan set in progress back in the early 80's .Power to the people is whats needed to get back on track.

This was all set up in 1776, became public knowledge. Kant remarked that the plan was too silly to be taken seriously. He underestimated the secrecy and its power that would envelop the West through secret societies and associations, name changes, etc.

Tube, you got walls in your house, a door that is not open to absolutely everyone that knocks? If so, why?
Cliff M. Added Feb 3, 2019 - 10:51am
No wall left countless Americans on the streets after the Great Recession while millions of questionable laborer's proliferated. Inshore or out shoring of millions of jobs turned this country rife for the exploiters on both ends of the stick. E verify was in the initial legislation passed during the Reagan years but conveniently disappeared during that amnesty period. This was the beginning of the ignoring of the welfare of the ordinary American when the financial globalization began.

"Tube, you got walls in your house, a door that is not open to absolutely everyone that knocks? If so, why?"
I got walls on my house, but they will keep no one out.  They primarily protect me from the elements.  To keep unwanted people out, I use other methods than a physical barrier.  They appear to work well.
I kind of like Tube's idea.   However, the problem is the Democrats will never go for it, because for them it is not really about the  wall either.
Just as for Trump, the wall is about the election. 
Democracy, how grand!

Walls can be easily climbed or tunneled-under. Evading IR, radar, drones, satellites, and air patrol is next to impossible. We have technology that will work much better than an archaic wall, which is nothing more than a symbol. I'm all for border security, but let's do it effectively.
We also need to enforce laws that supposedly prevent contractors from hiring undocumented workers. It's pretty obvious that this area is totally ignored due to the quest for profits and satisfaction of stockholders.
Maybe if we work on eliminating the very factors that create the incentives which are causing the issue in the first place, things would improve.
More technology should equal more jobs. Less competition for work from undocumented workers should equal more jobs. Building a wall may create more jobs, but we all know who would fill those positions.

Bill H., YES ........ we need to set up an immigration system that works and separate that from workers that come to only work here and return to their own countries when they are not working here.
We once had a system that did work for workers but that all changed when we started making it harder to enter to work which then led to having the temporary workers just stay because of the trouble to get back into work the next round.
Immigration is a different matter and the greatest majority of people wanting to enter the country are those “running” from oppressive governments that Our Government helped to destabilize for American corporate interest.
Thanks for your comment Bill.

Mustafa, Tubularsock likes that you “kind of” liked Tubularsock’s idea. Good thinking!
And you are correct ....... election, election, election is the name of the game!
Tubularsock Added Feb 3, 2019 - 12:35pm
Doug, Tubularsock does have walls in his house but they have NEVER stopped anyone who wanted to get in. Walls are handy but more to divide space than to protect one except from the elements ....... until your roof leaks.
And Doug, have you ever added up the maintenance costs of keeping your house walls in good condition? Now a border wall’s constant repair, Tubularsock would rather the government repair the fucking potholes!
Thanks for the comment.
Tubularsock Added Feb 3, 2019 - 12:36pm
Cliff M., very valid points you have made here. In fact a case could be made that we are ALL deplorables when it comes to any candidate we follow. And we always seem to be bamboozled by their rhetoric vs their performance.
Tubularsock doesn’t see the “people” ever having “real” power only chimera.
Thanks for your comments, Cliff.
Tubularsock Added Feb 3, 2019 - 12:37pm
Dino, Tubularsock doesn’t believe even Dump is that stupid AND if he’d follow Tubularsock’s plan it wouldn’t be necessary.
Got to admit that having a National Emergency called after all this time would sure give a new definition to Emergency but logic isn’t Dump’s strong suit.
We shall see.
Thanks Dino.
Tubularsock Added Feb 3, 2019 - 12:38pm
Bill H. thanks for your support. Tubularsock agrees that this idea is a good one and you agree so Tubularsock believes that constitutes “Collusion”.
If you have the time Bill we can meet in Trump Tower at the Starbucks and continue our collusion and because it is New York they’ll be a lot of Russian going on. New Yorkers never slow down.
Thanks for the comment.

I have left Writerbeat because I have been kidnapped by some nefarious American government agency who has branded me as a subversive so they can take away all my inalienable, unalienable, and natural rights. I bet book sales are going through the roof!
But I managed to trick the guard in this shack (I'm not in a real prison yet) to step outside for a moment, and I got to a computer to check on what Tubularsock is doing on WB. 
Disappointed, I must say.
My shares in South Texas Wall Building Company Ltd. are tumbling. So too are the Arizona Caisson Corp. and the New Mexico Fortress & Fortune Construction Inc. 
Not a good idea to pretend the wall is built. At least for my stock portfolio.
If I don't respond, you will know why.
Bill H. Added Feb 3, 2019 - 1:32pm
Since many of the Trump Tower residents are Russian, I suspect we could order a cup of Raf, along with some caviar, perogies, and some plyushkas.
Just imagine what declaring a "National Emergency" would do to the stock market!

Bill H, It would probably give the Fed a good excuse for them to start the QE 4ever program.

Of course this has nothing to do with a wall, or any wall. After the appropriation is what less than $6 billion?  A few congressmen could piss away more than that in the blink of an eye.  It's of course a shit show between the powerful and the peasants get to watch.  Unlike George Bush that claimed we could come out ahead with the Iraq War (all that cheap oil) I think Trump is one man that could turn it into a commercially viable operation.
After all they could turn it into Disney World. There would be no shortage of idiotic Americans (and foreigners for that matter) that would pony up $20 (or a family pass for $75) to see the "Great Wall."  The US could sell advertising space on the "Great Wall."  I'm sure the scumbag payday lenders would be the first in line since illegal immigrants are a big target audience.

George, A Disney spin off is a hell of a good idea. Could work.
Envision a series of Trump Towers on their sides for 2000 miles.
Oh sure the escalators would have to be reinvented but THAT'S progress!
George, you have driven Tubularsock back to the drawing-board!

What a great idea! The bigger the lie the more people have to trust it!
How about a virtual wall!

Thanks opher, as Tubularsock has often said, "A 'virtual wall' is so clear."
