AN AMERICAN CARAVAN STOPPED BY THE WALL – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango — Wall

Mexico is building a wall to keep Americans out. With hundreds of thousands of unpaid Americans, all of whom have no salaries on which to pay their mortgages or for that matter, buy peanut butter sandwiches, everyone is heading for Mexico. At least it’s warmer down there.

Ohio gets very cold in the winter and Washington D.C. is no picnic either.


“We cannot handle these caravans of starving Americans. They can’t just come into Mexico unless they can prove their value to our nation. So we are building a wall to keep them out.”


The president of Mexico said it in Spanish, so I can’t quote him directly … but as it turns out, Trump got what he wanted. All he had to do was turn America into a desperate shithole country, with starving people seeking asylum. In Mexico.

It wasn’t nearly as hard as he thought it would be. And see? The Mexicans ARE paying for it after all!

  1. I know fully well that we have already exchanged mails – I just couldn’t find it where I am writing now. But I’ve got you – in my mail addresses and in my heart! You’ve got a very good place, warm and cozy, right by the fire 😉

    • First, you can find email addresses in comments from other people on your blog. Otherwise, there’s a “comment” section on my site. If you use it, I’ll send you back my “real” address. I just don’t like publishing it too openly. These days, I don’t trust people to not hack me. Been hacked once, don’t feel like going round two! Under the right side header at the very top of the front page of the site called ‘Pages’, the first entry is “contact.”

      I love the cartoon!

  3. I just realise that I don’t seem to have your Email address…. or not on my ‘newish’ computer nor smartphone. Well, how could I do that? Shall we try this?:

    BUT haven’t we written to each other before? I’m sorry about this – I was quite sure but as I stated before I’m no tech wiz…. Hope this works

  4. Marilyn; maybe Stephen Colbert takes you both on, Tom and you…. this is worthy for his show (I DO hope and trust that this has sprung from your vertile mind!!!!). I’ll send you a super cartoon I got yesterday – that will seal the deal!

  5. It seems he would rather leave the people he professes to represent without money than discuss a compromise. All you can expect from someone with an ego the size of the planet.

  8. He’s brilliant (NOT!) — scheming and conniving to gain a win. And all those companies that had plans to move back to the US are actually coming back — another conniving win!
