Ask the Chinese, they have a couple thousand miles of solid wall and find out what goes over theirs. They have centuries of experience to draw on.

As blood thirsty little savages, me and my pals in cut off jeans, no shirts and 22ís on shoulders, were running a creek looking for adventure. We knew every inch of this section, so were surprised when we entered a small thick copse of trees. Some feeling was in the air as we slipped into the center of the grove and stopped in silence. At some unheard signal, the leaves, branches and the very trees themselves burst into thousands and thousands of monarch butterflies. They were literally so thick each one of us was completely engulfed and surrounded by them. It seemed like the sun dimmed for half a minute. It remains one of the most incredible experiences Iíve had in the outdoors. By all means build the wall, but I hadnít thought of that moment in quite awhile.

If they can survive crossing the interstate highway systems why would a wall do them any harm? I just don't see how a barrier with holes in it could be a issue for a butterfly in any way!

You need to take a much bigger part in your son's education or he will be lost to liberal wackiness. Hopefully it is not to late to steer him back.

I'd ask the kid just how this will come about and why he believes that outcome is even possible!

I have no idea if it actually will or not, but I was on a highway job a few years back and we not only built butterfly fence but we built snake fence to protect the rattlesnakes that was in the national forest.

Who cares there's no fur on a butterfly.

It works. I have seen very little road kill through there. Usually there are smashed box turtles on all the highways in wooded areas in that part of Ohio.

The more of this stuff I see the more I think the left is like the spoiled kid kicking in circles on the floor of walmart after their mom told them no. Or is it more like Linda Blair when the priests enter? Either way the left does not want anything that is good for America and I don't think we have seen the limit of what they are willing to say or do

Here's the deal with the butterflies, and why they are saying that. The CEO of the National Butterfly Association is a rabid liberal with Trump Derangement Syndrome. Just this week she compared Trump to Hitler. So, that is why the wall is suddenly detrimental to butterflies.

Was they trying to say possibly hurting a butterfly was as bad as killing millions of Jews, Christians and others. Seems a bad comparison or their timing was just off.
I would say the slaughter of millions of babies would be more Hitler like.

Yeah itís too late heís going to Art School innToronto. But he is studying film making like Bushman. Not drama or modern dance. Plus we live in Aklavik Northwest Territories. Iím lucky he has an education. The Queens feduciary responsibility to educate us is not her priority.
