"I am a natural born State Citizen of 'State you were born in here'" lmao my man didn't even try to proofread what he was sending

Not every social interaction needs to be a debate with a winner and a loser, my man

Yikes. That last paragraph talking about the films plot makes it read like they're trying to advertise the upcoming movie on top of someone's death.

When did I say Biden is to blame for everything?

I mean, sure, you didn't type that exact sentence but when you provided an itemized list of why Biden is to blame for each item in my original comment, it's not a huge leap of logic to think you blame Biden for these things.

It's interesting to see the assumptions and projections you put onto me. All I've said (or implied snarkily) is that the housing and homelessness crisis that we're seeing in America is a multifaceted issue, and much larger than trying to simply blame one man.

For what it's worth, I have no love for Biden and think he could be doing a hell of a lot more from his position, as could the rest of the corporate Democrat party, as could literally any Republican with a spine, but unfortunately we're stuck with a party that won't act and a party whose only purpose is to block the other.

I still don't think you can distill the housing issue down to just 'Biden bad' though, so you should really do some introspection and see if your anger towards Biden might be blurring your viewpoint a little bit

You cracked the case!

It wasn't anything like coordinated rent increases from large groups of landlords using a pricing app, it wasn't a worldwide pandemic disrupting the market, it wasn't America keeping housing as an investment vehicle instead of a means of sheltering humans, it wasn't decades of wealthy investors buying housing to convert into rentals.

Nope, all of that complexity can be tossed out the window because one single man is to blame: Joe Biden. All in his first term as president too!

The Democrats didn't make it hard for normal life to function, COVID did.

Also lmao at 'full fascist' as if there were forced vaccination camps that the government was tossing idiotic republicans into. Ironically that probably would have been a lot more successful at disease prevention than the 'ignore the problem, prevention is the real enemy, I want to die attempting to breath god's free air through my ventilator and that's my right' strategy that many red states adopted

It almost assuredly was not escalated to global. I received the same canned answer from them earlier and asked to be put in contact with a person from the European company.

Their response was to send me here:

If you poke around, you'll find that there is no effective way to contact anyone by email unless you've got a specific support question with a model number attached, so I sent an email directly to [email protected]

Will it matter for anything? Probably not. Will at least one guy have to read some stern words about an attack on open source development? Yep, and that's good enough for me I guess :P

It's because behind both parties is a unified force known as the military industrial complex, which loves any excuse to make and sell weapons.

Say our government decides to send 100 million dollars in military aid to another country. Most, if not all, of that 100 million is sent as physical armaments rather than actual currency. The government gives companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, etc the actual money for this aid effort, and their products (weapons of war) are what is sent along as aid.

As it turns out, companies like the aforementioned love any excuse to sell more weapons, and carry large amounts of sway with politicians on both sides of the aisle, so they pressure those sales to continue.

In case you forgot, we're mammals too. The only freedom you're rushing towards is the freedom of death, but at least we get big vroom vroom sound make happy on the way

I have no love for our politicians, at all, but that's somewhat misrepresentative of the situation.

They're not spending their money only in one state. They usually have to maintain multiple residences, one in their home state and another in the notoriously expensive DC metro area. DC cost of living eats a significant chunk of that value, I'm sure

Probably depends on how comfortable you are at reading assembly instructions for your specific CPU, but I think generally the contextless source code is probably preferable. Either way you've got a headache of an investigation in front of you though.

here's an example of what it might look like with either option
