all your borderlands are belong to us:
Far as I can recall I though eminent domain was supposed to be used for some demonstrable public good, not for public demonstrations of our national imbecility. Much as it pains me to oppose our government in anything ever, it's hard to approve of this:
The U.S. Department of Justice has sued at least nine Arizona landowners, seeking temporary condemnations so it can survey and prepare to build a border fence.
The suits, filed in U.S. District Court in Tucson, seek to invoke the government's power of eminent domain to gain access to land along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The actions come less than a week after the government said it was preparing to go to court to force dozens of property owners in the southwestern U.S. to allow them access. It said it was preparing to sue 11 landowners in Arizona, 71 in Texas and 20 in California.
At least we don't appear to be annexing Mexican territory to build it, though the opposite might be true.

Public good? To-may-to, to-mah-to. Whatever. Why don't we just build the fucking thing out of Legos and be done with it?

Invisible force fields would be even better, that way they wouldn't know how tall their ladders needed to be.
