This powerful spot was produced by Mexican airline Aeroméxico in May 2016 when Donald Trump first announced his plan to build a wall along the Mexico-United States border and has since resurfaced in the wake of this weekend’s immigrant and refugee travel ban...

Once the space age fully dawns upon the whole of humanity, where will borders be then? Nowhere, I hope!
But then, one cannot be too optimistic in the face of the human condition. Perhaps, there will be some who will want borders on the Moon, on Mars and beyond. Let's hope not!

Couldn't agree more.

I think the idea of a wall is ridiculous, yes. I agree with Trump's ideas of restricting homophobic Muslims (who even at their low number have already committed the worst massacre against gays in the U.S., directly at the behest of imams who visited that Orlando mosque) but I think the idea of a wall on the Mexican border is ineffective in so many ways, no matter how one feels about undocumented immigrants.

Dumpty Trumpty is so ridiculous by is ways of making all those «presidential directives» and also the «show off» way he makes them which were never done by any other presidents.

For de Mexican wall, what makes is directive to build it to prevent Mexicans to come to USA so ridiculous and idiot is that already, Mexicans are crossing those existing walls by «tunnels»....

Hey, Dumpty Trumpty, get over it.....

Le temps de la haine est-il venu ? Ne baissons pas les bras, oh Trump tu n'emmureras pas nos amours, et nos cris trouverons un écho éternel...

MJJM said...

So, Jiel, if that's the case with the tunnels, do you think it would be more effective to find those tunnels and block them up ?

JiEL said...

@MJJM,

As I saw on some TV news, those tunnels are already found and blocked.

No matter what will be done to «try« to block Mexicans or other outsiders to come to USA, they'll always fine a way to go around.

Watch Trumpty Dumpty go for the next 4 years (more or less) and he'll be doing so much arm to USA that you'll be ashame to have put him in office.
Already, his words about the judge that is going against his «mulsim ban countries» is outrageous and a disgrace toward the Constitution of the USA.

MJJM said...

And, Jiels, if the tunnels ARE already found and blocked....then why are you saying the wall is useless because of the tunnels ??

JiEL said...

MJJM because as rats, shut down one tunnel and they'll build two more somewhere else.

Not hard to understand.

Anyway, it's not a Canadian issue, it's a USA one.

Here we have some Mexican immigrants and they are quite nice.
I could even put forward that I like them better than the muslims.
But there again, I know many muslims that come from Morocco of Algeria and they're nice people and peaceful.

Why are USA against immigrants when the majority of your people ARE immigrants?
Just thinking of Verner Von Braun and Albert Einstein that did USA make huge steps for space exploration and doing the atomic bomb etc..

Also many «STEINS» in the movies industry that made Hollywood so famous worldwide.

MJJM said...

It's not a question of whether Mexicans are nice people or not. They generally are nice people and American and Mexican culture have been interactive in many ways for hundreds of years. But you are, basically, saying the U.S. shouldn't waste its time having any borders at all? Is that it ? And, if so, does that go for only the U.S. or do other countries have to have open borders ? (BTW : the Steins that advanced the sciences and the film industry didn't come from cultures that hanged gays nor went on mass rapes in Europe. But I'm hoping you're not so simple-minded as to propose that all immigrants are the same).

JiEL said...

MJJM,

I'm aware that all immigrants aren't the same.
I also know that many Germans came to USA exactly to get out of Nazi regime that was chasing them.

My only concern is that USA, and mostly «Trumpty Dumpty's» fans, are happy about what their new president is doing.

Washington's «king» is now ruling signing all those presidential decisions, in some big front of camera shows, thinking that it's the way he will «Make America Great Again».

He nominated his «rich» friends to be with him in office while he was elected by a majority of «déplorables» that were hoping a change in Washington. Poor them because he is doing the contrary by choosing some «Wall street» rich deciders even if, during his rallies, he was talking against them.

Not to mention all «going backward» politics that are coming soon in regard of LGBT rights, women's rights, black's rights, freedom of speech and press (that already happened), global warming, etc, etc.

Finally, your politic system is too much controlled by «religious» people and that is badly tinting the way you do politics in USA.
What I mean, it's that religion here is wrongly used to put forward some politic decisions in USA.

God Bless America, is over rated here.
Which God is it about ??

MJJM said...

Instead of answering all those false assertions you made (religious people in the US. government ??? that was Obama and his team), I'll go back to my initial queston: Do you think the U.S. should have no border control at all ? And is the U.S. the only country you think should have no border control ? (Even Mexico doesn't allow anyone to come over its southern border illegally).

MJJM said...

And yes, as someone who is a huge Trumpty Dumpty fan, if his actions keep a mad Muslim from entering a Museum here in NYC (like the one just attempted at the Louvre) and killing people and destroying artwork, I'll be even more happy.
