what US did to Vietnam & Korea was far worse than what was done to their new pet Japan (who had done far worse in Asia themselves)

it's almost as if the US is a country of genocidal racists or something

naaaah surely not

he's right, and now i have had a look there's nothing really stopping a country from developing lethal autonomous weapons.

you thought mine fields were bad. it's no big thing to set a belt fed weapon on a gimbal with a camera hooked up to a Arduino or raspberry pi. something gets close enough, it lets fly. just enough smarts to do the job and super cheap to build. i've seen it done with a pellet gun, these things are brutaly efficent and never sleep. just the thing to leave behind for an advancing army.  it only gets worse from there.

And anyone with access and power can do this from the comfort of their leather recliner on their smartphone as their Epstein hire sucks them off, while all he/she/it is thinking as they do it is to make sure they do it right so they can make it back to the barn alive once again so they can go out and service another friend of Biden/Bush/Obama/Clinton.

what in the name of ruyi jingu bang are you going on about? i'm talking about autonomous weapons here and you've somehow segwayed, nay, drunkenly sledgehammered the topic into something about epstein and blow jobs??? to top it off you start naming presidents leaving one out i might add.

starting to think you've got yourself a minor head encumbrance skeptoid.

I think he's trying to say that "they" are about to get us. Nobodys safe. We're all going to die.

What I'm saying is that the people who will have access to the power represented by "autonomous weapons" aren't folks you'd want to have that kind of power - they're going to be the worst possible people that you can imagine. 

 

How is that not obvious at this point, to either you Nakey or you Backdraft? Autonomous weapons might have been a good idea under different circumstances, but when the people who control them are part of the same crew that made sure not a single customer of Epstein was named, let alone charged, after he "hung himself" in his cell, does that not concern you - AT ALL????!??

 

No?? Left a President out? Trump and his crew are not part of the crew that took control of the United States in 2001. When I say Bush I mean BUSH - SENIOR - Bush Jr. was as much a Pres of the United States as Reagan or Biden, which is to say not really. No. LOL - not *really* the President in any way that mattered. The crew that took power were working on it really hard up to that point, they succeeded, and for the last 20 years they've had control and have consolidated that power to the point where there's a perm state in place now that won't let anyone who ISN'T part of THAT CREW gain power - REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE. They can be Tulsi, they can be Crenshaw, they can be Jon Stewart, they can be Mathew M, they can even be fucking Ocasio Cortez and it won't make a LICK of difference. ANYONE who isn't part of that CREW will get the same treatment TRUMP received, formed and tailored specifically for them.

 

HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THAT AT THIS POINT? What is wrong with you?

 

Trump's crew could be some completely other variant of absolutely insanely horrible - we had four years of him, and I don't want four more years of him. Not now - not with how the neocon crew currently in power that I'm talking about mixed with the apparent ignorance and apathy of folks like you has set things up for us all, including you. I want Tulsi - I don't care if she doesn't like guns. I want someone sane, and level-headed, and compassionate - genuinely so - who is interested in mending fences, restoring a collective sense of community and moving us forward instead of trying to destroy everything because "God is mean" - you are not children. You must see this is the situation. Do you get me know? So now, let's introduce robots who kill better than any human and don't EVER question orders?

 

Fuck I wish I was drunk half the time I'm posting this shit here. You people make me feel INSANE with your apathy. Rant over.

 

But let me just add this - I know the future I'm worried about, which seems imminent, is something that will only impact me and those like me who won't accept a future where rich oligarchs kill at will using robots while being completely above the law, abusing who they want for pleasure as alpha predator psychopaths. People like me represent only about 20% of the human population. I'll be killed by that future. I suspect folks like you two will adapt, rationalize something inside your minds to make it "okay - no it's okay as long as I stay safe" and you'll say what you need to say and do what you need to do to stay alive or even prosperous as long as you can while the soul you don't believe you have writhes and thrashes around in agony. I'd rather die than experience that fate, so yes I'm trying to avoid a future where me and those like me are systematically eliminated. If you really are at a loss regarding my concern and what I'm talking about, you both should be safe. So, not us - not you - me only, apparently, if your confusion is genuine.

Yeah, it's a crazy world out there. If you start worrying about every single thing, you'll go insane.
