A sea wall sounds like infrastructure and
any public spending on infrastructure has
been defined by conservatives as socialism.
Therefore, we can't build unless private
money does it and that's not at all likely.

Ergo, nothing gets done; the country gets
more third worldly all the time and
conservatives take pride in their work of
destroying America.

But the sea level is not rising and global climate change is a myth.
Actually that is the perfect reason for the govt to build us a seawall.
IT will also keep out illegally immigrated fish looking for jobs as Aquarium displays.
