Thread Name: BS: The ongoing state of emergency in US
Subject: RE: BS: The ongoing state of emergency in US
USA Today, September 14, 2017:"President Trump has become the third president to renew a post-9/11 emergency proclamation, stretching what was supposed to be a temporary state of national emergency after the 2001 terror attacks into its 17th year."

My point is/was that conflating today's mess to the previous is a little misleading. Our national nightmare is bad enough without borrowing extraneous stuff.
