    Perhaps the USMB could create an OCD section ,for those who continually post the same topic , or better yet, a sado-masocist section for those seeking to continually answer them......?

    Was needed a long time ago.

    The entire border discussion is barely newsworthy and deserves only one thread (if any).

    Some days -- it's just incredible volume of people who have just a comment or fresh link, and don't even CHECK the listings for an existing thread to put it in.. We TRY to honor threads that have a UNIQUE perspective on existing topics, but are often just overwhelmed by the "multiplication of the noise" about some daily conflict issue.

    Merged about 8 or 10 of that flavor for JUST yesterday.. Evidently people don't KNOW what a wall is or what they do.. Confused about TAKING PICTURES of illegal crossings and then playing 3 hours thru the cacti with helicopters, ATVs, horseback in pursuit ---- versus slowing them down or discouraging them or channeling them with an actual barrier..

    It's like those rope lines at the airport that gets people in line. They can be hopped, but GENERALLY it keeps the folks in the proper order and everybody gets served...

    I've resorted to cutting and pasting my previous posts in response, lately it's all...

    The wall won't work...

    Mexico isn't paying...

    AOC is a Genius (or an imbecile depending on who posts)...

    It's not worth the effort to come up with new insults.
