Banning Jenetically Modified Organisms
I think we should probably get rid of Jenetically Modified Organisms. For a while I thought they were gone but they seem to be making a comeback. Our health is at risk people. Do you wanna sit in your moms basement eating old cheese? Are you tired of being tired? Does your back hurt?

Getting Mexico to pay for the wall
Why doesn't Trump just impound Mexican land on the other side of the Rio Grande? -- land with a value equal to what it costs to build the wall. As a bonus, the wall could be built south of the river. That would make it easier to build.

....because that would involve annexing the territory of a sovereign state, and would be an act of war?

Annexing means you take it, intending to incorporate it into your own country. Impounding is like when they tow your vehicle and keep it in the lot until you pay the fee.

After all, the border adjustment tax doesn't seem to be going anywhere and taxing remittances to Mexico is easily evaded by bouncing transfers to a 3rd country intermediary.

Allow illegal immigrants who have been resident in the US for over 5 years or so the right to citizenship following the payment of a one-off new citizen tax of around $5000. Those who have made a successful life will be able to afford it and become US citizens, those who haven't can be deported, and the revenue can build the wall.

"Impounding is like when they tow your vehicle and keep it in the lot until you pay the fee."

So you're gonna build a wall that teleports back to the border as soon as the Mexicans pay cash?

I wonder why no one else thought of this.
Hauta (1618 D (S))

We can give them a fixed amount of time to pay up. If not, then we build the wall just south of the impounded land. Just like a tow facility, if you don't pay to get your car out, after an amount of time, they "own" the car (and sell it or build a wall on it).

They should just double tax registered Republicans. Double tax me for my environmental fees and gas taxes in return. I pay for what I want; they pay for what they want. Maybe then people will start thinking twice about what they support.

@Jamiet99uk annexing the territory of a sovereign state

we did it twice with mexico
The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (Tratado de Guadalupe Hidalgo in Spanish), officially entitled the Treaty of Peace, Friendship, Limits and Settlement between the United States of America and the Mexican Republic, is the peace treaty signed on February 2, 1848

The Gadsden Purchase is a 29,670-square-mile region of present-day southern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico that the United States purchased via a treaty signed on December 30, 1853, by James Gadsden, U.S. ambassador to Mexico at that time.

One thing that I know (I don't think--I know) is that most people are not particularly familiar with how a border wall is supposed to work, how the Mexican-American border specifically works, or the geography and environmental landscape of the Mexican-American border.

It should be easier for the cheap Mexican labour the contractors will use if it could be built on the Southern side of the Rio Grande, and you could use Mexican cement & Chinese steel to save money

More to the point, why should Mexicans pay for Americans' boneheaded stupidity. If Americans want to be racist xenophobic shits, let them pay for it. We should impose a tax on the incomes of non college educated whites to pay for it. They're the only ones who want it

He's going about this all wrong - we should dig a trench instead - looks like a wall from the bottom anyways.
As for who pays for it, pretty soon Trump will realize he doesn't want Mexico to pay for it - Trump industries has racked up lots of $$$'s off of the American people already and he's missing an opportunity for it to get a plum contract here. And since Trump employs Americans, he'll say it is going straight back into the American workers' pockets, so the wall is free. #TrumpReasoning.

peterlund. You should play a Diplo game with Capt Brad. Capt. Brad is not poor in any context. He has retirement money and will make you laugh with funny jokes. Hence, running for U.S President is the best route for him. Money and comedy go a long way.

Rise in diabeties in Dwarven and Halfling communities
Recent spikes in Type 2 diabeties have led to dramatic dietary changes in many halfling and dwarven communities. The diets consisting mostly of ale, salted pork, and pipe weed have finally started to erase the accepted idea that these races were rich in longevity. Gout, Obesity, and Type 2 diabeties have all risen. Recent additions of Mountain Dew and Doritos in Dwarven Mine Snack halls may also be to blame.
