It's CURTAINS for the BORDER ?


Following up on Nancy Pelosi's "what's next - A Beaded Curtain ?" in response to Trump hedging on what would constitute the border barrier, MSNBC did a cost analysis for the 900 miles:

Amazon.com lists a 39-inch beaded curtain for $12.77. A required 1.4 million curtains would total $18.6 Million.

A 108-inch curtain rod from the same vendor @ $23.99 (Qty. 528,000) = $12.6 Million !

AND, FREE SHIPPING.

$ 31.2 Million.

.006 percent of the last ( $5B ) compromise figure.

OK, there would be additional materials, labor and right-of-way expenses, but we could probably get in for less than a Billion. And, it would be attractive in its utility.

Mexico "might" pay for THAT. Especially if we hired Mexican laborers for a significant portion of the work.

There could be some durability questions. UV, wind, rain, snow, etc. (theft ?) so there might be substantial additional maintenance expense compared to that Concrete and Steel stuff.

But, clearly, it's worth a serious study.

Which is what government does best.

Studies, that is.

Don't forget the incense burners and incense. Sounds like a groovy idea to me, dude. Far out.

What was the most popular incense 'flavor' in the late 60s? You could get them in sticks or 1" tall cones. For some odd reason I can't recall.

In 1995 I was passing through a small town in southern Montana and encountered a hippie head shop with lots of tie-dyes in the windows. Went in for nostalgia's sake, and a cute Li'l teenager was waiting on the counter. I told her just the smell of the place took me back over 25 years.... she rolled her eyes and said,

"Mom always said, 'SHURRRR... when you can't bathe, wear PATCHOULLI'...... "

Needless to say the scent has never meant the same to me since..... but I still do nostaligize to it.

Peace, love, and stinky pits.

I always thought patchouli oil was to cover up the smell of hashish. No?

Ah, the memories................

Geez....i thought it was the standard accompaniment for hash....
smell memories are some of the strongest...

....and whatever happened to that good Afghani black black stuff....with the government/warlord seal stamped on the bricks...???

And if Amazon can't fill the order for curtains, have they called Ikea?

There's already a revolving door. What do we need to waste money on a curtain for?
