Are we going to make it to fifty? I think we're going to make it to fifty... :)

38. A Terminator will not make light of police brutality, since Terminators have been on the receiving end of a lot of police violence. Sure, it was utterly, utterly justified police violence, and they give as good as they get, but still.

39. A terminator does not care about religion. He neither discriminates for nor against.
A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

Point of order: the Terminators were never independently capable of time travel. They required large devices to travel through time, and once they arrived, they were stuck.

Except in The Sarah Connor Chronicles, where a small (hand-held) time displacement device was planted in a bank vault. Doubtless a Terminator could be provided sufficient data to construct one, if necessary for mission success.

Stay on target...stay on target...


42. A Terminator has a better understanding of life, the universe, and everything than probably any POTUS past, present, and future.

47. (Or possibly a new amended #19).

A Terminator will have keen knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of a drone-based assassination campaign, and will have realistic knowledge of what it can and cannot do.

In Terminator Genisys the T-800 known as "Pops" successfully constructed a time travel device and used it to send two humans into the future. Another Terminator manged to construct another one. So yes, properly programmed Terminators are capable of building time machines.

49. A Terminator is thorough, and will not half-ass a mission and then declare victory without even knowing whether or not it met the objectives.

50.) The Terminator is a direct result of increased minorities' representation in the STEM fields and the Terminator also provided opportunities for the advancement of minorities in the STEM fields. ;)

52. Given the Terminator's ability to perfectly mimic voices it would make a great singer, and could easily give other leaders prank phone calls.

55 The Terminator won't take shit from any other world leaders but is willing to work with others to complete his mission.

As an aside I could see some of the attacks ads for President Terminator.....

(Read this in the standard attack ad voice) "John Q Terminator says he is tough on crime. He says he will clean up our streets. He says he is a friend of the police. He lied. Video evidence shows him killing dozens, engaging in high speed chases and even killing an entire police station. Tough on crime or a criminal? What else is he lying about? Even he even a cyborg? Paid for the Robocop for President.

Despite claims by the misinformed, the Terminator isn't a cyborg: its continued operation is not dependent on its organic camouflage. A cyborg is a mechanically-enhanced human, like Officer Alex Murphy. Paid for by Friends for Alex Murphy
