High Walls Make Good Neighbors?

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said in an interview broadcast Sunday that building a wall along the U.S. border with Canada is something worthy of further study.
"That is a legitimate issue for us to look at," the Republican presidential candidate said on NBC's Meet the Press program.

Walker said the issue was raised to him during a campaign event earlier this month in New Hampshire. He and other Republican presidential candidates have more commonly called for building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.
As he's fallen behind Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in national polls and those in the critical state of Iowa, Walker has taken a more aggressive stance on the immigration issue, including backing the billionaire's calls to build a wall along the entire border with Mexico.

The United States has 5,525 miles of border with Canada and 1,989 miles with Mexico, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

  1. I think we should consider building a sea wall in the Bearing Strait between us and Russia. And what about a wall between us and Cuba in the Gulf of Mexico? And then ..... Nah, that wouldn't be practical.

    1. Are we having a flood of illegal Canadians crossing the border?

      Strange I have not heard that.

      Now with Cuba being our best friend why would anyone there want to come to the US??

      As far as Russia, we just need another restart in our relations and everything should be great again.

    3. The dome works well as long as all communications are cut off.

    4. I was thinking... opaque... a faraday cage kind of affair... with bright stadium lights... kinda like in an interrogation room, with huge monitors showing interviews of people talking about what they think of congress and other monitors showing lines of laid off lobbyists, fired by corporations who no longer need their services....
