Customs and Border Protection is replacing a little more than two miles in downtown Calexico, a sliver of the president's plan for a “big, beautiful wall” with Mexico. A barrier built in the 1990s from recycled metal scraps and landing mat will be torn down for bollard-style posts that are 30 feet high, significantly taller than existing walls.Landing mats are the pads that gymnasts bounce around on. And they're all metal grates that can roll up that military airplanes can take off and land on where tarmacs are damaged or nonexistent.
Bollards are phallic symbols. So great, a two-mile long row of 30 feet-tall phallic symbols. Take that, Mexico.

Comments at San Diego are surprisingly supportive. I expected much more empty partisan snipping. Such as seen at Legal Insurrection. Lawyer types sure do get shrill when they feel cornered. Some dude calls everyone idiots for supporting Trump and allowing his flip-flopping. He's triggered by a comment about promises kept so he spews all perceived Trump promises unkept without allowing any extenuating circumstances like his own resistance. He's ignored.
