The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Paying for "The Wall"

For John, BLUFSenator Dick Durbin is a prig who doesn't want a deal.  He would rather have the fight than help the Dreamers.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

A friend of mine sent this out in an EMail this morning:
Somewhere over the weekend I saw an interview with a wizard of analysis.  Sorry, that’s all I remember (I was engaged in a very important discussion with my wife….) EXCEPT the dollar figure cost of every illegal immigrant.  This organization did an in-depth analysis and determined that over an individual’s lifespan, each illegal immigrant cost us $75,000 each.  They included all the puts and takes – taxes paid, etc.

Bottom line: Worst case scenario, the wall pays for itself in 10 years.

Allowing for errors and inflation and cost growth and illegal immigrant leakage, let us stay 12 years.  Still, a bargain.
