    How about a false bottom on the other side of the fence?

    Dig out trenches, 5 feet from the fence. You land on it, you go down a slip and slide into the sewer system.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    What do we do when a terrorist throws a kid over the fence to test the response? 7 times in a year and after security protocols were changed.....I might not care for BO so much. But he is the President and our President, no matter what party he is affiliated, cannot be allowed to be taken out in the White House.


    What bothers me about this is.....we see when one person does it. What happens if it 5 or 6, and or even more and they are armed. Then what? They don't have to be successful. The News media will eat it up and just the attempt will show that even US President isn't safe in his own house.

    Y'know, if this guy had hopped the border fence he'd have been given a work permit and a bus ride to his nearest relative.

    Just sayin'.

    Greetings, WCH.

    The only problem I see with that is the natural instinct of dolphins to get a person to dry land if they're in the moat. It could be self defeating if they were to take the intruders to where they wanted to go in the first place! :

    Soon as I hear "Rothchilds" I think of this:




    But really, isn't this putting a spotlight on the LACK of mental health help we have in this country?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

I hope my Canadian Parliament remains open and accessible to all Canadians and to visitors from around the world - many tourists comment on and complement Canada for such openness.
    I say leave the existing fence as it is but have a secondary fence electrified about 5 feet from the first. If somebody gets over the first they will be stuck on the second.

    They can make it as invisible as they can so as to not obstruct the view of the White House.

    What are the people in Florida and other coastal States going to do? Their water table is too high for a bunker, poor things. Many don't even have basements for that reason. Maybe they could use that to their advantage, though - just dig down enough to hit water, build a moat and stock it with alligators or other predators. Hey, it worked with castles in Europe....
    Some people are going to have to be sacrificed, that is a given.

    But how do you train them to only go after the fence jumper and not the SS agents or the President for that matter?
