WASHINGTON - The fence along the U.S.-Mexico border is mostly finished.

Customs and Border Protection spokesman Lloyd Easterling says that 601 miles of the project had been completed as of a week ago. Easterling says 69 miles of the fence still must be built to meet the goal set during the Bush administration.

........Lawmakers also gave the Homeland Security secretary the power to waive federal laws, such as environmental protections, when erecting the fence. Obama, as a senator, voted for the project.

........Congress has set aside $2.7 billion for the fence since 2006. There's no estimate how much the entire system — the physical fence and the technology — will cost to build, let alone maintain.

Another example of government trying to fix a problem it caused.I'm sure the lobbyists are making out on this deal though.

A question they might want to explore.
Why are people taking the illegal way to get into the country?

Unbeliveable the con job

Unbeliveable the con job they pulled on the American people so that everyone WANTED to be fenced within their own country. If you can convince people to DESIRE to be fenced in, they can be convince damn near anything.

"There can be only one permanent revolution - a moral one: The regeneration of the inner man."

"The body is but a vessel for the soul,
A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
For it must feed on the flesh of others,
Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
Therefore the soul deceives and despises."

Do we know where that 69 mile gap is?

So we can escape if we need to?

You can escape anywhere on the fence!

You will just have to do it on foot! Climb it or go under it! 2.5 billion isn't enough to make it un-climbable. Hahaha

Another thing is

how much money they paid to the Indian tribes who were inspectors on the fence. Between $35 and $50 an hour to Indian inspectors who don't even know what they were looking at. And after we have the completed product it will only be a car barrier. People can climb the fence or go under it easily. I have a friend from Phoenix working on a section of the fence and this is what he has told me. Another deal is that it is a govt wage job! $45-$65 per hour depending on what you are operating. I am an excavation contractor by trade, and the economic stimulus for infrastructure is going to supply jobs to the large companies but won't do anything for the small businesses that are the fiber of our country. They want us all working for huge conglomerate companies who don't give a shit about the local communities. In essence making us all govt employees. What is the difference if the fedgov supplies all the work for large companies who have to follow gov regs to a T, or everyone working for the fedgov directly? Either way, the fedgov is supplying all the jobs, either dirctly or indirectly. Wtih the economy right now, the best a contractor can do is jobs for the state or city governments, but those jobs are decreasing, and most of them have federal funds, and are subject to the fedgov telling them how things will work. How far are we from communism where everyone is employed by the state? Sorry to rant but thats the way I see it! The REVOLUTION can't be far off! Buy food, guns and ammo while you still can!!!
