The US-Canadian Border. Does it Need A Wall?

The Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, proposed building a wall along the US-Canadian Border in a political discussion on TV. Doesn't this sound crazy? I wouldn't waste 2 seconds worrying about something like this, and I bet the Governor really doesn't either, but.......

This brings something up that, IMO, very few know anything about. We all worry about how insecure the US-Mexican Border is, but to the best of my knowledge no foreign agent or political terrorists to date has been caught entered the USA by crossing over from Mexico. Canada, yes, but none from MEXICO! And this goes way back! During WWI and WWII German agents crossed out of Canada into the US, and this was usually in the New York/Vermont/Quebec area. Soviet agents....those who didn't fly directly into stateside airports....crossed from Canada. To date the one terrorists group that has been apprehended crossed over from Canada. Maybe we do need to build a wall....:uhm:

    The BP is very active in MN, they had some assistance from the Army/NG after 9/11, mostly jackholes from IL and IA over their limits on fish, some drugs of course, pretty benign stuff according to some friends that were on loan up there from the Army, they worked the night shift so they could hit the morning bite fishing, they ate a lot of fish. The border is too huge and too remote up with Canada. If you are not white or Ojibwe, you stick out like a sore thumb in Northern MN, ND, and WI.

    We have needed to secure the US-Canadian border since Confederate Army 'commandos' secretly assembled in Canada for their attack on St. Albans, VT, in 1864.

    All the more reason to build one. You forgot William Shatner.
