I feel your pain.
Brave new world.
Ok, so THEY'RE conflating two different things.
I think something is wrong with the premise in your first paragraph, conflating Q with black hats.
Ummm... er... never mind. 😅
Oh great, yet another source of false info. The 20th century may be the last to be documented reliably, more or less. Future historians will have their work cut out for them, discerning what was true, what was false, and what was generated by AI.
Umm, well I wouldn't count on that. Grammatical errors seem to have a way of propagating exponentially until, sadly, they become permanent parts of the language. My pet peeve is using "than" and "then" interchangeably, as in "so and so is better then that other so and so." I also find that phonetic spellings of common words irritate me. But they persist, and a few years ago had to force myself to stop being a Grammar Nazi for my own serenity.
But of course the result is that, while I don't point out such errors to people anymore, I do privately judge them. If someone makes too many grammatical, punctuation, or spelling errors in a short space, I'm inclined to block them from future communications as I find them too irritating to read.
Perhaps it has something to do with my Myers-Briggs Personality score of INTJ.
While you are 100% correct (I was a technical editor and writer for many years), I am not aware that this was a burning (or even lingering) issue in society, or one that needs to be discussed on GAW.
The things weigh several hundred pounds, so the "recoil" would be negligible for the robot. I just wish my old, damaged shoulder could stand that recoil as much as the robot can.
Most of the cop-robots I've seen are on two treads (skid-steer type) mounted with cameras and a 12-gauge shotgun, and a speaker to communicate, if possible, with victims and/or perpetrators. The type you describe (the so-called "dogs" that walk on four limbs, are still in trials AND they are vulnerable to anyone with a rifle, as there are critical points where they can be rendered inoperable... a rifle round to the point where any of the limbs attach to the body (actuators, and there are 4 of them) and the central processing unit, which is located almost dead center of the body. A round (or two or three) can disable these things, especially green-tip armor piercing rounds.
I don't think Congress can prevent commercial banks from enacting a CBDC policy. My bank (which I'm ready to ditch, btw) is going to "investigate" and small trial run with digital currency later this year, and I've put my branch on notice that if it goes forward, I am prepared to close my account and move it to a local credit union.
Damned good question.
Well, I didn't say that, you might be able to learn a lot from the routine comms traffic. The gun fired call you mentioned might have been on the routine channels, but the police are well aware of scanners and treat their tactical info -- investigations, raids, SWAT teams, and such -- with encrypted secret channels.
If they want to manipulate metals to lower prices, I'm fine with that, it makes it more affordable for us little people. I don't hold silver as an "investment"... nope, a time will come when all these manipulators are belly up and silver/gold will find its true market value and our currency will be in the toilet.
When that day comes, I plan to be a fat cat. But it's also wise to protect silver with lead, if you know what I mean.
You may hear routine cop communications but the really interesting stuff (drug raids, undercover ops, ert.) are usually on private, secure tactical channels and are also usually encrypted. I doubt you could tune in to those.
So your guess is as good as mine. Something or nothing... won't know until it comes.
Expenses for a Roman soldier was probably very low. They lived in barracks, ate whatever grub was cooked in the mess hall, perhaps had to buy some of their equipment, but I don't know that for sure. So maybe that silver was used for entertainment, wine, and prostitutes.
We've already been tipped off, eyes on and head on a swivel on March 30-31.
To use their own words, "No one is above the Law."
Ah yes, as a mature white male, I can now see the harmful effects of whiteness... like studying hard and getting a degree, working steady jobs over my lifetime, saving money for the future, obeying the law, being self-sufficient, and doing it all without complaining or expecting someone else to support me.
I can DEFINITELY see how that would be an affront -- even an insult -- to folks who don't do any of those things. But on the bright side, I ain't apologizing!!
It seems that some of these organs (brain, bone marrow, spleen, etc.) could be measured only postmortem from an autopsy. Leading to an entirely different, or at least expanded, inquiry.
Panera's is frpu-frou food for metrosexuals. Just don't eat there.
The time has come fir common sense tranny control legislation.
