In Some Areas, This Would STILL Be a Security Boost

Now completed in San Diego: eight, 30-foot-tall border wall segments along the Mexican border as test prototypes for the full wall.

If Obama’d done it, this would be the full wall.

Friday Night Open Thread

Star Trek was fun to watch back in the 60s. Oh, and in the 70s, too, because it was on reruns. Oh, and in the 80s. You get the idea. But, it was a shame it ended after 3 seasons.

That’s why I’ve enjoyed Star Trek Continues so much.
