I've NEVER had a Bluetooth device maintain connection at 30 feet WITHOUT walls.

I've never had one work through a door much less drywall...

I have had a few unexpected conversations with my mother-in-law while taking my wife's car out of the garage. I suspect not all Bluetooth devices are created equally, and the one in my wife's Ford is very good. It will connect to her phone from well over 30 feet, with several walls in between.

The problem is if they do not response appropriately and there is a true emergency and someone dies, they may get sued over that.

We have devolved as a society. I believe trust and civility are necessary for a successful society, trust is all but gone now. Shit, we have a President that lies his ass off about any subject he doesn't like.

I do worry about the future for my son. Are we going to leave some shit storm for future generations to deal with?

I was not able to find any MSM citations for what you talked about, so I looked at Wikipedia:


During the occupation, the militants illegally dug a new road using a government-owned excavator, expanded a parking lot, dug trenches, destroyed part of a USFWS-owned fence, and removed security cameras.[106][202] Some of the refuge's pipes broke, after which the militants, officials said, defecated "everywhere."[200] Investigators found "significant amounts of human feces" at "two large trenches and an improvised road on or adjacent to grounds containing sensitive artifacts" of the Burns Paiute Tribe.[203] A USFWS spokesperson said that the damage risked "the destruction and desecration of culturally significant Native American sites" and called it "disgusting, ghoulish behavior."[106] The Burns Paiute Tribe condemned the damage;[204] tribal council member Jarvis Kennedy described it as if "someone went to Arlington National Cemetery and went to the bathroom on the graves and rode a bulldozer over them."[205] Two of the militants, Sean Larry Anderson and Jake Edward Ryan, were subsequently indicted for "depredation of government property," an offense that carries a potential ten-year jail sentence.[182][206]

It sounds like you are confusing two separate incidents. They used a bulldozer to expand the parking lot and to dig trenches; and they defecated in a ditch and along a road that goes through the burial site (after the plumbing broke). It does not say that they used the bulldozer to make the road through the site, but that there was a road there.

Does it matter though? The countries you mentioned already implemented the background check system that the 7 did not implement. Do you expect that it has any bearing either? There are many muslim countries he has no business dealing with that were not in the ban, it is a conspiracy!
