Your US Constitution laws don't protect you outside the US
I'll let Bat's answer suffice because it's hard not to be sarcastic.

My concern in the US Constitution doesn't even protect me here where it's supposed to.

Yeah, what's going down in the Philippines is out of control. They are most likely going to become a serious problem.

I now live in a country where it is illegal to fly a drone but legal to fly an ISIS flag.
No, amazon drone deliveries for you. Or Pizza drone deliveries.

It's like he hears drones and all he thinks about are the ones that the government uses to take out targets in other countries instead of the growing industry that is on the cusp of happening. The only thing stopping it in the US is the FAA.

What's your issue with drones outside of the military ones?

I don't answer for morons, nor am I aware of anybody who thinks that the US Constitution applies to countries other than the US. And if you think otherwise then you probably have a pretty goofy idea of Americans.

And why are you grouping all of Europe together on this? I mentioned one country. I don't group in Mexico when I am mentioning Canada.
Well just taking laws against Holocaust denial and the Nazi party, which is a pretty damn big insult to the American ideal of freedom of speech, European seems to be pretty intolerant of those ideas in a legal sense. If so many European countries need laws against the Nazi party and Holocaust denial then how big an issue would it be if Germany and Hungary were to legalize that ****? Cause they're not a problem over here.

For all that Americans seem to be seen as racists overseas, that kind of **** makes Europeans look way worse than us to me.

Most of the US probably doesn't even realize the constitution is an actual document.

The EU has an organized governing body. You can't lump Mexico with Canada but you can lump Oregon with Alabama (unfortunately for Oregonians)

I'm not anti-drone. I just think they're more dangerous than flags. Flags don't scare me at all. I'm not worried about the flag; I'm worried about the people who would fly it- whether they are allowed to or not.

Actually it is interesting when it comes to referring to the US freedom of speech. In all other countries, it is simply common knowledge that freedom of speech does not permit hatred or other human rights abuses. In the US there are no laws against inciting hatred..yet protecting minorities is considered a cornerstone of democracy. Just a thought.


And of course there are countries in Europe where Nazi ideals or propaganda are getting stronger. Read the news.

Hatred is an abuse? You can't go around getting in some black dude's face calling him a nigger and telling him to get his disgusting coon family back to Africa, cause that would be harassment. So we don't need laws against thoughtcrime, cause we already have laws to protect people from racist ACTIONS.

Why do so many European nations need them?

So thank God I'm farther from those countries than you are.

He means European countries. He's European. That's basically true for him.

So Europeans are kind of like Texans: unaware that the rest of the world exists?

Funny that "all" countries comment came from someone who assumed I thought the constitution was a world charter

At least we got our info straight from the mouth of an actual European. And if ya'll want Texas and Florida, then feel free to take them. We'll give them to you with a free tray or cornbread and even throw in a plate of grits. MmMmm.
