    I heard on Paul Harvey news that the wall between the U. S. border and Mexico is being constructed with imported Chinese steel. Wow, what a slap.

    Not all hard to believe though.
    In the late 60s I was working for a large research firm which did line pipe research. The hot job then was testing sample rings from various mfgs. such as U.S. Steel, Bethlehem, Kaiser, and others for the proposed Alaskan pipe line. One day the boss was in the lab looking at some of our data and made the remark. Oh well it doesnt make any difference anyhow they are going to use Jap. pipe. Its arriving as we speak.

    I don't care if the wall is made of Chi-com manure, just build the damn thing.

    It needs to be like Israel, a concrete wall. Not some cheesy ass fence. Also, all Gov't contracts should specify that all components be of US manufacture.
