    Cards Against Humanity buys land on Mexican border to stump Trump's wall plan

    Turning the follies of the foolish president into a marketing ploy by appealing to those who think he is an idiot?

    That appears to be what one company is doing, having bought land on the border and vowing to fight any eminent domain land grabs, and getting themselves a bunch of free publicity in return.

    I love it.

    Cards Against Humanity buys land on Mexican border to stump Trump's wall plan - CNN

    The Chicago company said on its website that this was part of a holiday promotion, for which customers could contribute to the wall-blocking project with $15 purchases for surprise gift packages.


    On Wednesday morning, just a few hours after the launching the program on Tuesday, Cards Against Humanity said it was sold out.


    "Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans," said Cards Against Humanity on its web site. "He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we've purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built."
    Thanks from Djinn, HayJenn and Tedminator

    I get that some do not want to protect the border. Some feel that all illegals should be allowed to cross with impunity. I get it. Many are un-American scum. Here's the trick, if they buy the land, then fight putting up the wall, just put the wall on the other side of their property. Leave them a gate through it with a code box. It's already been done a few times.
    Thanks from Goofball

    Just leave them on the other side with no gate. Why spend the money.

    Just a publicity stunt aimed and mindless dim drones.

    Hmmmmmmm.......

    Why do I get the feeling that other groups are going to follow suit

    Especially when immigration is at the lowest levels.

    Not to mention for the 50th time, from an engineering point of view, building a wall is not feasible.
