Of course Mama's gonna help build the wall

Some time ago, I wrote a short post about building was wall between us and Mexico, pointing that it wasn't that simple and there were real problems with actually doing it.

Congress doesn't read this blog.

A map obtained by The Associated Press shows that the double- or triple-layer fence may be built as much as two miles from the river on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande, leaving parts of Granjeno and other nearby communities in a potential no-man's-land between the barrier and the water's edge.

Based on the map and what the residents have been told, the fence could run straight through houses and backyards. Some fear it could also cut farmers off from prime farmland close to the water.

When you have people running the Government who believe that Government can't do anything right, you GET a Government that can't do anything right.
