    This is private land. Get permit. Build in conjunction with city allowances. Have beautiful wall.

    Not sure how this is relevant to the monstrosity many want. But I support private landowners building walls on the border

    Looks like the city was wrong about the ordinance. Wall gets green light.
    It looks about the same to me as the "monstrosity" the feds have been building for the last couple of decades. One difference is that it is being done way cheaper than the government was doing it.

    So do I ---- except I don't think they should have to fund it privately. Of all the things government wastes money on which I don't approve of, infrastructure and security are two things I do expect for my taxpayer dollars.

    The right in the US suffers from a peculiar delusion the United States isn’t surrounded by water. Think about it.

    I have no problem with private owners getting funds from the government to build the wall. Actually I 100% support it.

    Private is private. Public money , and their private wall, stops at their property line.

    There is no privately owned land. You use your land by permission, only for purposes approved by the landlord, and only as long as you continue to pay your rent on time.

    Yea, the story seems to change from day to day. When I wrote that, the mayor said that the permit was in and approved. Next day, not so much. I suspect other players have gotten involved that we are not aware of. The bureaucrats will keep this buried in red tape for years because someone found a way to go around the government and do things faster and cheaper without someone getting their kickbacks. .

    And once again, it's now ok to continue building the wall....

    Border wall on private land given the green light to continue by New Mexico town
    City leaders issued a cease-and-desist letter after they said proper permits were not issued before the project began. But on Thursday the mayor said the project has been given permission to continue.

    You could donate to Kolfage's wall. My guess is, however, that you won't. Why? Because you realize that there is a reason that Kolfage, without actual real job, lives the jet-set, yacht owning life style with a trophy wife: The reason is naive RWers donating their hard-earned money to his cowdfunding (or shall we say scam) campaigns.

    That's what this is all about. he is using $6 million of the $20 million already donated to build a token 1/2 mile stretch of wall, so he can raise more funds, parting well-meaning Trump fans from their cash.

    Meh, he is getting it done even though the current hold is for processing the permits only since the small community was having trouble processing permits before he started building.

    Must burn your britches that he is actually getting something done.

    True.

    It was predictable as the Sunrise.

    BUT, credit where credit is due, good call.

    You should listen a little more closely to "the left", chief.

    In general, we're smarter than you guys... 8) :roflol:
