    Thanks! I'm from Brazil I live in the state of Minas Gerais, lots of beautiful historical cities. I was raised in Ouro Preto, it's the most beautiful city in my state, I think. Currently I live in Belo Horizonte, it's the capital with more than 2 million inhabitants. It was nice to join this forum, I'll be paying a lot of atention to American politics at least until the next presidential elections... and hoping Romney wins... I'm Going to sleep now, man. Goodnight!

    Welcome. No need for eloquence in America, America is now home schooled by corporate America, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox propaganda which gives the right wing their talking points each day. The so called left thinks they are serious thinkers, but fail to realize money and simple messages, whether they be truth or lies, is all that is required to keep the nitwits in Congress, so few vote today.


    "...the exact same experience can mean two totally different things to two different people, given those people's two different belief templates and two different ways of constructing meaning from experience. Because we prize tolerance and diversity of belief, nowhere in our liberal arts analysis do we want to claim that one guy's interpretation is true and the other guy's is false or bad. Which is fine, except we also never end up talking about just where these individual templates and beliefs come from. Meaning, where they come from INSIDE the two guys. As if a person's most basic orientation toward the world, and the meaning of his experience were somehow just hard-wired, like height or shoe-size; or automatically absorbed from the culture, like language. As if how we construct meaning were not actually a matter of personal, intentional choice. Plus, there's the whole matter of arrogance..."

    I see the trolls have already introduced themselves.

    There's an "ignore poster" feature on this board you might find useful.

    I have availed myself of this relief from the idiots feature about 40 times, now and my onboard experience is far better now than it was when I had to wade though these idiots drivel.

    Welcome to the USMB, amigo.
