There are two types of walls that can be built: Those designed to keep something out, and those designed to keep something in. The wall that President Trump wanted to built was intended to protect American citizens by keeping out those who would plunder their wealth.
The one that Congress built in Washington DC last month was also designed to keep people out, but for a different purpose. It has been designed to keep the American people out, so that those people cannot interfere with those members of Congress who are plundering the wealth of those outside of the wall.
This isn’t the first time that a government has built a wall in order to plunder its own citizens, and no, I am not talking about the Berlin wall. I am talking about the Wall of the Ferme Générale. This was a wall built around Paris with the intent of preventing goods and materials from being brought into the city without the payment of a toll on goods entering Paris to the Ferme Générale.
The Ferme Generale was a corporation of tax farmers that collected a toll, sometimes referred to as a grant or a tax, on all goods entering Paris, and this toll was known as the Octroi. This tax was put in place, charging people for the ‘privilege’ of bringing goods into the city. As you can imagine, people in Paris did what people always do, and simply ignored the tax.
Well the people who made their fortunes stealing money from productive citizens couldn’t have that, so the powers that be decided to construct a wall around Paris with offices and different buildings for the toll collection. The construction of the wall was started in 1785 to cover an area of approximately 24 kilometres with just over sixty different toll houses or barrier buildings.
Nothing is new under the sun. Our own grifters are doing the same thing- they are ensconcing themselves behind a wall designed to protect themselves while they pillage the wealth of the richest nation the world has ever seen. I wonder if this will end with the guillotine.

They had to build a wall to keep in the kangaroos that were coming to court.
