Any chance to pin that on the content mafia or patent trolls? C'mon, at least ONCE such a story has to hit someone we can uniformly hate and not be controversial.

So long as you don't blame it on Tesla, Bitcoin, or Starts with a Bang, everyone here will cool with it.

You can't tell me that the late-hitting backronym "taxed enough already" is not a direct result of worshiping the dollar.

How is it not?

Apparently, I can.

No, you cannot.

could desiring fiscal accountability

Amping up the regressive nature of the most regressive taxation system in the world is not even close to the same as "fiscal accountability". I would suggest you try again but you haven't really tried once.

It is entirely plausible that speed limit is 70, speedometer reads 70, car is actually going 72, and radar reads 73.

It's my understanding that speedometers are not allowed to under report your speed.
The manufacturing tolerances are such that the speed can show you going faster than you are, but never slower.

OTOH I'm not sure how you can reasonably legislate pics taken from drones. Do you now define a private location to include the airspace above it? But what if I am in public airspace, yet high enough to see over a wall?

Instead of playing with theoretical situations, it's easier to focus on the basic tenets of the law:

If you can see it from a "normal" location, it's not an invasion of privacy.
If you use a R/C to look over a fence, it's like using a ladder to look over the fence.
It's not a viewpoint the average person has, therefore you're invading their privacy.

They openly worship the almighty dollar even more so than their parent GOP.

Troll Tuesday, indeed.

Oh, come on. You can't tell me that the late-hitting backronym "taxed enough already" is not a direct result of worshiping the dollar. Add to that the fact that most of your party's ambitions relate to accelerating the distribution of shiny stones...

That was pretty much a rehash of what you were saying weeks ago when you were still proud of not reading The Communist Manifesto. In other words you are supporting the hypothesis that at the very least if you did read it you gained absolutely nothing from it (and hence did not comprehend the document in the slightest) or perhaps did not actually read it at all.

He obviously didn't ever hear or read about Normandy. Or about the German disaster at the outskirts of Moscow the previous winter. Germany made the classic blunder of believing they were invincible (or at least acting like it) based on Hitler's Ideology of German superiority.

Additionally, he doesn't realize that the US was pretty much the only people fighting on two fronts at the same time, Europe and Pacific. Now, I don't know if he's looked at the globe lately, but Pacific was a pretty big theater. And the Japanese were tough fighters, often fighting until the last man had fallen, something rarely seen in warfare.

You just proved my point in its entirety. You think one is wrong and the other isn't. Others believe both are wrong. You even use the same language as homophobes. They think that homosexuality is not normal, healthy or acceptable.

You can't compare pedophilia and homosexuality because ONE OF THEM INVOLVES MINORS WHO ARE UNABLE TO LEGALLY CONSENT.

Sure, the age of consent is arbitrary and varies from state to state, but that's the fundamental difference.
And I don't see the slippery slope argument that leads from consenting adults to children to animals.
It's just not there.

Make sure your code does nothing gracefully.
