Here is a stupid idea — let’s build a 30-foot wall around Mexico, Maine. All we have to do is negotiate land easement rights with Roxbury, Carthage, Dixfield, Peru and Rumford. Of course, it would be necessary to cross Routes 2, 142, 17 and 120. A bigger challenge would be the construction of the wall through Halfmoon Pond and down the middle of the Swift, Androscoggin and Webb Rivers.

Can anyone imagine the cost of such a dumb idea?

It’s a good thing that Trump’s wall along the borders of California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas will be paid for by the country of Mexico.

We ought to solve the “dreamer” problem immediately and expand the border wall with every payment Mexico sends us. Or was that just another of the president’s lies?
