  4. Daddy let's me use the computer for 30 minutes before dinner, thanks dad.
  5. But how can you say that, you can spend all of eternity asking subjective brains for their interpretation of reality and never get to the truth, unless of course you create "objective reality measuring" frameworks and tools that exist outside subjective brains and that way you don't have to spend all of eternity asking subjective brains for interpretations of reality, you can save yourself time, energy and resources by not even bothering with subjective interpretations and using those tools and frameworks instead. I don't see how this "taking the interpretations of subjective brains" approach is useful in any way specially since we all agree the brain is not the best objective reality measuring device.
  6. Its impossible to conceive the objective unless you have the right tools then its easier than the hype makes it out to be. For example take the relationship between color and light. A photon hits your eye, brains interprets that photon as a color (lets use blue as an example). Now lets say due to differences in the brain 3 out of 10 people see red instead of blue. How do we get to an objective truth here? the majority of people see blue but there is minority who sees red instead of blue, whats real and whats not, what is the true nature of the photon. The solution here is to measure the wavelength of the photon, and that is the objective truth in this example, not blue, not red, WAVELENGTH is the objective truth here. We have tools to competently remove subjectivity and get to an approximation of the truth. Now, i cannot imagine how a post-modernist would solve this, because you would have to take all interpretations into account.
  7. this is such a blatant misunderstanding that i shouldn't even bother addressing this. i said this in my post but maybe you ignored it or didn't understand what i meant. morality and ethics are not excluded from postmodern thought. you can be outraged about rape and still exist within the postmodern sphere. please re-read my post. I read your post and maybe you would do something about suffering but a lot of your post-modernist buddies reject the idea that X should tell Y how to behave, even tho how Y is behaving is causing lots of suffering.

  8. there is a saying in my country "Sleep with children, wake up with a wet bed", in this case Mourinho is the children and the wet bed is boring football.
  9. As for moral relativism, conscious beings can suffer, that's all you need to know, if it was in the culture of some foreign population to rape girls when they turn 16 would you accept it, turn a blind eye and say "hey who am i to judge?". This is why cultural relativism is nonsense, while you sit there saying "who am i to judge" a conscious being is suffering.
  10. i don't understand, so the post-modernist approach is to get rid of objective truth and use subjective truth as a way to get to subjective truth? How would a post-modernist approach physics ? just grab random people from each continent and ask them how they think gravity works, and then what? resign yourself to the fact that there are so many interpretations of gravity that its just impossible to get to the truth (or an approximation of the truth). Deepak Chopra has an interpretation of physics, should we spend energy + resources listening and following Deepak's interpretation? Why are subjective brains paramount? surely the best way to get to the truth is to remove the subjective brain entirely and use objectives tools.
  11. oh really? how does post-modernism get from A to B (A being ignorance, B being truth) show me the path and while you are at it show me how moral relativism is the best tool we have to understand morality and ethics.
  12. Who benefits from doing away with objective truth?
  13. @ Chen, you say that (and im sure you are kidding) but there are consequences to that kind of lifestyle, by the time you are 40 your body is gone, and you are left with some savings, no skills and probably dont have the energy to gain a skill (some people do and good on them for that but its not easy at all). There is a reason why i dont do that kind of work anymore, im making about 20,000 less a year simply because i could not take it anymore, those extra 20k is just not worth it, your body feels it, your minds feels it. I remember my mother telling me back when i was working as a garbage man and making 32 dollars an hour that i looked so old and tired, and that made me really sad, it made me ask why and the conclusion i came to is that i was destroying my body for an unsatisfying job and for money that was not making me happy at all. Yeah you make a lot of money but at what cost. Life is precious, and you need a healthy body/mind to enjoy it. Would to see stats on drug use and unskilled hard labor, i'll bet you anything that a huge percentage of unskilled hard-labor workers have substance abuse issues, i mean i saw it with my own eyes but would i dont have the data to say what percentage in general.
  14. the reason there is any offer is because the democrats demanded it. they are bargaining because they know they have the leverage to do so. also, the dreamer thing was created by obama. the republicans are not the ones fighting for dreamers. democrats are. Republicans control both house + presidency, a CLEAN DREAM ACT aint gonna happen, time to wake up and smell the coffee. My frustration comes from democrats acting like a 16 year old trowing a fit because daddy didnt get the car they wanted for their sweet 16. The only way we are getting DACA is by giving trump funding for border security/wall, that is the reality of the situation end of story. If democrats want to wait 'till 2020 to pass a CLEAN DREAM ACT fine but most of us are going to be deported by then unless they compromise. I don't understand why the idea of compromise is so alien to people, you cant always get what you want, specially when you are the minority party, time for the democrats to be adults and compromise.
  15. This is simply not true. A bunch of red states were taking DACA to the courts, DACA was going to lose just like DAPA did a couple of years ago because both daca and dapa are unconstitutional. Trump probably did us a favor (not on purpose of course) by ending earlier cause it sparked action.
  16. the reason there is any offer is because the democrats demanded it. also, the dreamer thing was created by obama and the democrats. the republicans are not the ones fighting for dreamers. democrats are. I never said republicans are fighting for dreamers, they dont give a shit about us (expect Lindsay graham) they are just using us for the wall/border security, but i expect them to use people as bargain chips cause they are a bunch of ayn rand loving cunts. Also, the democrats demanded it, republicans responded with an offer and now democrats are refusing to compromise, they'll rather burn DACA to the ground than give trump funding for the wall. My first landscaping job i got paid 250 for a days work picking up twigs so the guys that work the machines can do their job. If you know how to use a landscaping machine you can easily make around 300-500 a day. It is rough work but if you can handle it im sure the pay is worth it. The way it works is a contractor gets paid for a job, then the contractor has two choices, hire legal labor and pay for the wages, insurance, regulation fees, etc or pay a day laborer 500 for a days work and pocket the money you would spend on extra fees for hiring legal labor. The way it was explained to me legal labor costs around 300 dollars more than illegal under the table labor, thats why contractors do it and thats why if you come to my town at 5-6 am you'll see a bunch of dudes standing in corners looking for work and an hour later those corner are empty.
  17. On the first point, not everybody wants a career, a lot of them come for a couple of years make money and leave the country, a lot of them send the money back home to build a house or help family. I guess there are many reasons to work for under the table, you gonna have to ask them i guess, i can only report on the people i know (which i understand is not a good sample size but i dont have the resources to go around the country and ask the 1 million who qualify for DACA why they havent signed up yet) On Trump's word - There is a bill, if it passes both houses and its sign into law then there is nothing to worry about cause its the law of the land, even if he changes his mind he can't do shit. On the first article you posted, im in the same camp, if DACA isn't fix i'll turn myself in, i dont want to live in this country illegally. On the disneyland article, i dont understand why you posted that, the people protesting already have DACA, of course they want it lol. The question to ask here is why out of the 1.8 millions who qualify for DACA, only 680,000 signed up for it, im sure there are many reasons but like i said i can only report on the people i know.
  18. The problem i have with liberals and democrats on this issue is that they want unrealistic things/refuse to compromise. We live in a country with liberals, conservatives and everything in between, you gotta compromise. The solution to the DACA problem is right in from of them and they are refusing to take it because they want to obstruct the Trump administration no matter what. In the meantime time is running out, DACA is going to expire and all of us will be in danger of deportation, now can you see why im so angry with democrats? they are making our lives stressful as fuck for political reason, and fuck anyone who uses people's livelihoods for political/ideological reasons.
  19. Obviously you are not going to find millionares but you can easily make 6 figures a year working construction/landscaping jobs like that, i know guys that make 500-600 a day/7 days a week under the table. If you are making that kind of cash you don't want DACA because 1 - you have to pay taxes on it, 2- you get pay way less because now you are under regulations (example - can't work past certain amount of hours, your employer has to pay worker's comp, shit like that) and 3 - you need to get an education and that costs money and time, time you can be spending working under the table making 6 figures. I cannot tell you what percentage of illegal immigrants fall in this category because there are some that work with fake papers and don't make that much money but ill bet you anything the majority of them don't qualify for DACA anyways. DACA is not a path to citizenship, its just protection from deportation and permission to work and study in the country. The main reason conservatives don't like DACA is that its unconstitutional (im sure some of them are racist and dont want any more brown people in the country but who knows what percentage of them think like that) Obama and the democrats had many chances to make DACA the law of the land, Republicans like Lindsay Graham offered to work with dems to pass the bill but for political reasons it never happened. As for Trump, on the campaign trail he said he was going to end DACA but then quickly realized he can use us as a bargain chip for the wall. Trump wants to give us a path for citizenship in exchange for border security/wall money/immigration reform (see SOTU speech) which is a great compromise in my opinion, specially since the wall will never be built, they'll just renovate whatever is there already, mainly fences.
  20. On the white hipster thing, oviously there is nothing wrong with standing up for justice and for whats right but the linda sansour types dont care about solutions, they just care about forcing their believes on other, and the daca issue shows that clearly. On illegals making money, yes its all under the table, if you apply for daca you have to pay taxes and pay for school, thats why there is a million immigrants who qualify for daca and not interested in it. On stefan molenyx, he is a cunt and the welfare argument is bullshit because illegals dont qualify for shit unless they have american babies (even there they only get food stamps which is hardly exploiting the system)
