Comment Re:Obama can't bind Trump without Senate ratificat (Score 1) 403

Actually no.
It's pretty easy to understand that countries can't be trusted if the treaties made by one of the temporary wearer of the big hats won't be upheld by the next one, especially when they come as quickly as every 4 years, and in this country never lasts more than 8 under any circumstances.

Whether you like it or not, it's the duty of the POTUS to uphold our treaties and agreements, even if he personally doesn't like them. If he has the power to voluntarily dismiss them, he has to do it by the means allowed for in the agreement. If he doesn't like that, he can bite off his own dick for all that matters, assuming he can find it.

Odd. I've only ever heard complaints about them in the last 5 or 6 years, and yet they've been in use since at least the 50s, and I'm pretty sure back to the 40s.
Marketing changed the name though, they used to be called R/C, which is short for Radio Controlled. There have been many thousands of R/C enthusiasts since long before I was born.
I think you're overreacting, to put it mildly. Too much hyperbole there AC.

I'm pretty sure there are laws that cover situations like this where you suddenly have to agree to some kind of new restrictions or things, you can cancel or ask for and receive and immediate full refund. (ianal) You see this with phone contracts a lot, though the phone companies try to keep it quiet, but it covers a heck of lot more than just that.
I'd give that a shot. Sure, you won't have that R/C toy anymore, but you'll get your money back and can buy a competitors, or wait until this DJI pulls their head out of their rectum.

Yep, he's either delusional, or it's part of some huge scam.
I'm voting for delusional.

Still, the brain only would actually be harder than a head transplant. Kind of the same way it's easier for surgeons, real ones that is, to transplant the entire heart and both lungs than it is to just do the heart.

Of course, that cretin should first get his epic fail and possible murder or manslaughter charges for his head transplant he's already committed himself to before he goes for the wetware only version. Speaking of committed, why hasn't anyone dragged him off to the nuthouse for an examination yet?
