    Here are pictures of the wall under construction with people who appear to be 15 to 18 inches tall using your scale of measure. Second pic shows the completed wall.

    Sticking with your waist high claim?

    Yes, the wall is clearly at the workers waist level

    What is identified in your image as 10 feet tall is called a collumn

    Had you asked if they'd ever BEEN better regulated, I would have understood, and the answer to that question is YES.
    As far back as even the first Bush administration, the blizzard of lawsuits PLUS EPA actions DID indeed cause more regulation, and the concrete plants began to reluctantly attempt at cleaning up their act.

    Here's a helpful hint:

    Midlothian concrete plant pollution

    You'll find articles and links dating as far back as 1999, or earlier, and as recent as this month.

    And my Trump reference still holds no matter what, because I simply said "willy nilly, the way Trump is doing".
    I didn't say that the Trump White House sent specific communications to the concrete plant operators in Midlothian with big block letters saying "Let her rip, boys!"...I just said that the town of Midlothian is a study in the effects of "cutting regulations willy nilly".


    And it is. It IS a study. The history of concrete plant pollution and sky high birth defects in that town ARE a study in what happens when you cut regulations willy nilly - - THE WAY TRUMP IS DOING.

    See if you can possibly understand the ANALOGY. At this point, I think analogies and metaphors might be over your head, but try, won't you?
    My point is that opponents of Trump continuously lie about his record and what you did is exactly that. Their passion and yours is admirable, but useless.

    You said that Trump is deregulating stuff (willy-nilly) and that cutting these regulations will cause harm.

    DO YOU HAVE ANY EXAMPLES TO SUPPORT YOUR CLAIM?

    Simply being upset about something and then screaming, "TRUMP DID IT!" seems to be the fashionable thing to do around here.

    When you claim to have evidence, it's courteous to present the evidence.

    Seems there is none to present and you admit it. I accept your admission.

    I said "the WAY Trump does"...

    I do love that clip. I demonstrates the learning disability of many.

    Now, with the meaning that clip in mind, can you provide ANY EXAMPLE of the regulations cut by Trump that have had a negative impact on your life?

    Providing a negative result unrelated to Trump or anything he ever did or ever contemplated and then screaming "Trump" is what you have done so far.

    I'm trying to find out if you hate Trump because it's stylish with all the other kids or because he actually did something that injures your or your interests.
