Facebook, DON, Michael discussed on Ron and Don


Facebook live. Thanks to the Michael thanks for that. Don, Shaw radio. It's on. What are we talking about? Here. Are we talking about who we talking about? Are we talking about here? All right. So let's talk about the wall. Again, why isn't the story just go away because a little over forty percent of Americans? Now support the idea while it's tempting to go into all the obvious flaws in this plan, including how Mexico was going to pay for it. And the fact that much of the land in question is privately owned. Let's step back and consider the concept for a moment. Clearly, the idea the physical wall along the southern border of the United States is resonating with a lot of people. The why there seems to be several factors driving. This thing. The drive to feel safe I desire to keep criminals out of the country and a fear of losing jobs to legals to me the common flaw in all of these arguments is that human beings are really bad at understanding large numbers when a crime committed by illegal alien. Many people immediately put themselves into that narrative. What if that crime happened to me or someone I loved that horrible? We can't have it. Same thing for when you hear a story about someone losing their job or their property getting stolen when you frame it up in terms of a bad thing that you want to avoid making the leap to a wall starts to make sense. I don't want this bad thing to happen. If we just keep out the people who do these bad things, then the threat is gone. No, more bad thing. So build the wall only that's not really how the world works as it negative. Things are not created only by one group of people that happened to speak Spanish that one crime. Or that one job is not the only crime, and it's not the only job it's really hard to conceptualize what three hundred and twenty five million Americans. Look like unless you're criminologist. You really don't know how many crimes are happening on a day-to-day basis a lot are there crimes being committed by people that came over the southern border. Of course, there are the which group do you think commits more crimes? The twelve to fifteen million estimated illegals or the three hundred and twenty five million legal residents. It's not natural or easy for most people to think about an incident as a percentage of the whole then be able to understand if it's significant or not to the whole country so would spending billions of dollars to build a wall on the southern border solve a national emergency. Probably not, especially if you believe the majority of Americans that said emergency doesn't actually exist. Would it make some people feel safer? Maybe is it worth the money spent I guess only you can answer that for yourself for me. The clear answer is no. Coming up tonight. We will hear the president's eight-minute. It'd be interesting if he keeps it to eight minutes because he's supposed to speak to from the Oval Office about what Ron just talking about for eight minutes, and then they're supposed to be an eight minute rebuttal. But a lot of times when he freestyles. And you see this happening in the evening hours. Log because that's typically when he's traveling..

Coming up next
