Press upset that the wall is black



President Donald John Trump is having workers paint the wall rising along our southern border black. This has the press corps sobbing.

Kathryn Krawczyk of The Week wrote, "Trump hasn't let his aesthetic demands fall by the wayside. One mile of the wall was painted matte black so it would be more hot and slippery to ward off climbers, and Trump is demanding it all be painted the same color, border agents tell the Post. And even though the top of that current one-mile span is covered with smooth metal plates, Trump wants those 'unsightly' climbing deterrents removed in favor of spiked steel toppers."

Boo hoo hoo.

The Orange Man is mean. He is making it difficult to scale the wall.

And she complained about the cost. The black paint will cost $133 million -- or about what the federal government spends every 15 minutes, every hour, every day.

Reporters asked Mark Morgan, acting chief of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, about the black paint. They said painting the wall black might mean the wall might not go up as fast or as far. Suddenly an occupation that nearly universally opposes the wall is worried that it might not go up fast enough.

According to Newsweek, Morgan said, "There are a lot of factors that go into that, to include anti-climbing features to the wall as well. Painting is one of those. And sure, there will be a cost associated to that and that may impact a number of miles. But again, the operational impact that we'll get through painting..."

A reporter interrupted him and said, "So you support painting the wall [even though] that would shorten the number of miles?"

Morgan said, "I think we need to strike a balance between making sure that the miles we build is the most effective wall system we build with respect to also the number of miles. I think it's a balance we need to strike and that's exactly what we're doing."

The Newsweek headline said, "Acting CBP Chief Tries to Explain Why Trump's Border Wall Needs to Be Painted Black: 'It's Common Sense.'"

The concern trolling by the press is reassuring. The wall finally is going up 13 years after President Bush the Younger signed construction of the wall into law.

The press is not amused. I am.

  2. Here are my suggestions for additional border wall enhancements:

    - Pit traps with Spikes of Doom
    - Rattlesnake dens
    - Roving bands of Rottweilers
    - Large speaker systems that play The Shaggs’ Philosophy of the World nonstop
    - Rows of poisonous cactus
    - Colonies of tsetse flies

    Low cost and environmentally friendly! What’s not to like?

    1. The flies are a bad idea because they can, you know, fly, so how you going to be sure they stay only near the wall? But, that made me think of flypaper... how about glue on / near the top, like rat traps? or more humane velcro? Leave them hanging there until Border Patrol cuts them down and releases them into the wilds of Mexico (or lets them drop back over the other side). That would also give BP the opportunity to photograph them in flagrante delicto and keep better records of these visitors.

    2. All those surplus anti personnel mines could be utilized. Just kidding, but I have been writing and screaming about this since 1986 at least, and until now little has been done to actually slow/stop this invasion. The original portions of the wall, according to the project manager who built it, could not be over 12 feet high to prevent serious injury to those who fell climbing over it. What!! I screamed when I read that.
      The wall will slow down illegals, drugs and sex trafficking it is said. But terrorist infiltration and the spread of disease is hardly mentioned and the potential of fentanyl being used as a weapon in our cities is ignored completely.

    3. Paint's not just for ascetics, it'll protect the metal from the elements.
      Since powdercoat isn't practical for this application, I'd go with a 3-5 mil. urethane coverage.

      btw z-man, you forgot you could add mountain lions, coyotes, and wolves. They'll have plenty to eat with all the free-range illegals.

    5. Instead of Large speaker systems that play The Shaggs’ Philosophy of the World nonstop, Substitud the song with "It's no fun being an illegal alien" by Genesis.

    6. Good idea. Wrong song. "It's A Small World"

  3. "Don't worry I'll pardon you"

    You don't need to pardon something that isn't illegal. So much corruption from the Trump filth. Has he figured out how to grift from the wall construction, you? You just know he's trying.....

    1. YOU are the only grifter. Amazing that Soros is paying you for such pathetic drivel.
      Thought for the day, if we coated Nonny the ninny with Preparation H, would he turn into a midget,or disappear completely?

    3. Were you asleep during the Obama Administration. The Russian interference was done during his time in office, or did you ignore that bit of truth. The IRS attacks on his enemies, which just happened to be the 2nd charge charge in the draft of Nixon's impeachment. And the violation of the freedom of the press. Of course the unwarranted investigation of Trump by his administration. I could go on, but there were serious grounds to impeach Obama.

  4. Specs will now be altered to require matte black materials be used so there's no after the installation painting. The material shows up already painted matte black.. Problem solved with no additional time required.

  5. I'm surprised no one has accused the wall color of being racist. I guess it needs more time.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well the colour... it's just because on a slatted fence black is the easiest colour to see through. Lighter colours being reflective block the view more. Rather simple actually, not many cars with a white dashboard.

    But hey sounds so much more sinister to invent some racist angle to this. Could even be connected to global warming, everything else is.

  7. Trump hasn't built one new mile of wall.

    Not one.

    And painting the refurbished sections black costs so much more it will result in an even shorter wall, if anything ever gets built.

    Congratulations, maga boy. You're a moron.

    1. You continue to post reasons for the reelection of our MAGA President.

      Keep up the MAGA work that you do.

      Every post in which you screech about what has yet to be done is a post clamoring for reelecting our MAGA President, electing MAGA congressional and senatorial candidates and doing so every election.

      So, please, do continue to post your complaints concerning how much more MAGA work is yet not done.

      And never stop being your inspiring self.

    2. He has rebuilt essential miles that were nothing more than window dressing. These sections were originally built in high traffic areas but were never very effective and now are totally useless.
      Your objection that he hasn't built NEW mileage seems odd coming from someone who opposes the building of ANY mileage.

  8. Black is a practical color. I think the pointed tops will add to the imposing look and keep birds from resting and pooping on our beautiful wall. I'd like to see some razor wire, broken glass, the odd punji stick, electricity and small landing pads for our drones, but those can probably be added on after completion of the main barrier.
