Rofl. Ok, I'll reply once to your walrusing, but this is it.

You applied US law standards to a foreign nation. Intent, commonality of gun ownership.

This is a foreign nation with their own very strict gun and drug laws. This is very common in 3rd world tourism based countries, particularly island countries. It's to keep their country controlled and safe, which is essential for the tourism industry. And many of these countries have devastating drug cartel histories, though I don't know this particular countries history with them.

But yeah, this is all about your gun rights to be careless with your firearms and ammunition, and your rights to travel to other countries and disrespect their laws.

I'm not going to spell out how this is all related to "accountability" because it's abundantly obvious.

And your victimized take on my pulling your political affiliation is rich, given your words I was replying to:

Just because you personally disagree with the 100 million gun owners doesn’t make this a moderate take. Imprisoning people for years because of a loose round in luggage is moronic politically and a waste of tax money.

But I guess not wanting to be accountable for your own words tracks.

Ahh yes, the "how dare they hold him accountable for his own actions" take.

Imagine my surprise when I quickly found you self identify as a libertarian.

Shocking.

There were a couple years in my teens when I generally wore all black clothes. I was not a goth, even if I was passingly friendly with a few goths.

Many assumed I was a goth, and it never bothered me to correct them. It was a completely understandable assumption to make.

You may not be a goth, but you certainly look like one at a glance.

Great modding there. I said he was "unhinged" and I guess that's not politely worded enough.

Give me a break.

They need a super majority to defeat the inevitable filibuster.

But you should know this, given how unbelievably outspoken you are all over Lemmy on how Biden/Dems are bad.

My far left friend wrote in Bernies name in 2016.

He did not play stupid games in 2020, and I suspect in 2024, though I haven't talked to him about it.

As left as he is, he has known what another Trump presidency means since 2021 with no ambiguity. Anyone pretending otherwise at this point isn't arguing in good faith.

There is zero reason to chase your vote. You will just move the goalposts. It's like negotiating across the isle with the Republicans. All you'll do is make compromises that will alienate your base, and then you'll just pull the football at the last second.

I'm tired of all these "Biden needs to change to get MY vote". The stakes are obvious. If you're not on board to make the best of a bad situation, then your vote is already unobtainable.

You are negotiating in bad faith, and it's obvious to everyone.

Was it one of the idiots intentionally drinking raw unprocessed milk to make a point?

[-] Wrench 5 points 2 days ago

When they're that far gone, there's no point trying to bring logic into the discussion. You just shrug and agree to disagree.

[-] Wrench 19 points 2 days ago

Dude is in half of Lemmy threads bitching about something. I'm just surprised they didn't somehow tie this into Biden being bad.

LIDAR would have similarly been degraded in the foggy conditions that this occurred in. Lasers are light too.

While I do think Tesla holds plenty of responsibility for their intentionally misleading branding in FSD, as well as cost saving measures to not include lidar and/or radar, this particular instance boils down to yet another shitty and irresponsible driver.

You should not be relying on FSD over train tracks. You should not be allowing FSD to be going faster than conditions allow. Dude was tearing down the road in thick fog, way faster than was safe for the conditions.
