Looks great! I wonder how much space is between those slats? The spikes on top are especially a nice touch.

How is that effective? Seems like putting bars gives you something to grip on as you can tie something around them or use other grasping tools to climb up and get down. A solid smooth surface with no gripping point would be more optimal. Perhaps I'm missing something?

Poor people, who are skinny, could stroll right through those gaps

I think they should just put a giant mirror there, so that when the Mexicans try to cross the border, they'll think they are being attacked by immigrants and flee.

It weirds me out that the magnification of the spikes is less detailed than the regular view.

Seems like it'd be really easy to cut through individual posts. Also, drugs are small and can be easily passed though.
See, it is actually possible to be critical of Trump without sounding like a moron. These are legitimate concerns.

To be fair, Trump sounds like a fucking moron every time he opens his mouth even when you agree with what he says. He may be a negotiator, but he cant articulate himself well. He is like one rung above dubya.

That design could actually work better than a (less tall) solid wall w/ barbed wire on top. Border patrols can see through the other side which allows them to operate more efficiently. If those slats are extremely high, then it will be difficult for migrants to throw rocks over the fence (there's a reason why border patrol vehicles are heavily equipped with customized protection).

However, the space between each slat needs be to narrow enough to not allow any person or large projectile through. I would also put some barbed wire so that even if someone manages to squeeze through, that person will have to deal with the wire after that.

I swear to god DJT is such a fucking idiot.

How he even has supporters at all is something I will never understand. I guess they like basking in the glow of corruption and corporate malfeasance.

I guess with those points up top, vampires will not be able to climb over.

I don't want a fence, I want a wall.

I really hope he doesn't try to compromise.

He's still better than Hillary. Although that's not saying much.
Both candidates suck but it's better to have chaotic evil than lawful evil.

They need the "wall" to allow visibility and it has also been described as a fence over the years.

So even if the "wall" is built, it'll look more like this, one way or another, than like a normal wall.

He's one of the worst speakers I have ever seen. However, it is not as important of a quality as the uninformed think. The Liberals would cream over Obama's inspirational speeches, with absolutely no substance to them. I'll take results anyday.
