Build a wall? Heck, southern Black Hills folks don’t even want to build a fence:
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is installing barbed-wire fence to close off part of a defunct military depot near Edgemont, but some area residents say the move will prove ineffective at stopping potential danger from lingering explosives and toxic contamination at the remote site.
…Cindy Brunson, whose ranch includes parts of the depot, knows the spot in her fence where scrappers broke in several years ago to steal metal. In the fall, she came across a trespasser who wanted to see the old buildings, which still dot the site decades after the depot’s closure in 1967.
The plan is a “waste of taxpayer’s money,” said Brunson, who lives at a former school in a neighborhood of abandoned wood buildings and chimneys standing in empty lots [James Nord, “Plans for Old Black Hills Depot Worries Some Residents,” AP via Washington Times, 2016.06.25].
All folks are looking for around Igloo is some scrap metal or cool pictures, and they could get poisoned or blown up in the process. If barbed wire won’t keep those relatively casual visitors out of a hazardous old military site, who thinks a magic wall will keep out workers motivated by the prospect of jobs in the Land of Opportunity to feed their families?
Bonus Nutbars: Of course, enlightened Americans know that the Igloo site, which housed Italian POWs during World War II, is really a FEMA camp. Ah, maybe that’s why Gordon Howie can’t win elections—the government has his supporters behind barbed wire in Igloo….
