This is actually rather important, you know that drug we where talking about in the virus thread? Well so long as there is a declared emergency it can be used before clinical trials have happened https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedn ... horization. This is limited though, so if we are no longer in a state of emergency...well then this cannot happen.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

It was long time ago - someone put "bullshit" in the thread title, whereupon a mod changed it to "male cow dung".

Cue 3 or 4 pages of people discussing about the existence or nonexistence of male cows.

If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
Our dream of greatness is historical necessity, yours is fascism.
