You have a choice. You can pay a living wage or you can pay for the social safety net that subsidizes those jobs that pay less than a living wage.

Or, yet another choice those folks get other jobs that *DO* pay a living wage, or work two jobs to get by....

They can also try to be somewhat intelligent human beings and see that they need to spend time off work honing skills that get better jobs!!

It simply is NOT that hard to get a job out there. It might not be one you like right off to bat, but there are jobs to be had where you can support yourself. And yes, you might have to struggle and not have luxuries in life, but that's kind of your own fault, for not grabbing that education you were offered as a youngster.

You have to pay the piper at some point, and if you didn't do it early on, well you have to do it later in life, when things are even more difficult, but it can be done.

Society does not owe you a living, it is up to you to fight and do what is necessary to live and succeed in our civilization and economy.

Humans were born to adapt...so, fucking adapt!!

Well, to be fair...not every job out there is meant to be a full time, "real" job that you earn your full living from....

I mean, uber is just a side money job, that's it. I mean, should I pay a living wage to the kid down he block to mow my lawn or rake leaves...or baby site my kid, and throw in full blown benefits too?

I know I"m moving closer and closer to the "get off my lawn" crowd, but please tell me, I missed it..when did things change an EVERY job available became one where you were supposed to make a living from and have a career?

I mean, when did burger flipping become a "real job" instead of something teens did in high school?

The "DANGER of AI" is that the AI will be somebody's bitch. Whose?

AI is "merely" another form of power, and adversaries-who-have-power are always a threat. Don't worry about AI; you should worry about $THEM getting AI, thereby causing $THEM to have an edge over you.

100.0% of techs are just like this. When you're pointing your nuclear missile at someone else, it's good. When someone else is pointing one at you, it's bad.

Because until we get unmolested pure android OS installs that allow us to remove all baked in crap the Carriers and phone makers try and sneak in there, Android users will need a way to get a smooth and clean Android experience.

Comment Re:Apple TV or Roku at reduced price (Score 3, Informative) 25

I currently have FireTV's on all my tvs....and currently do Playstation VUE for $35/mo for the 70+ channels.

I tried the DIRECTV NOW for the free 7 day trial.

I wouldn't switch to DirectvNOW due to:

1. No built in DVR capability (helps skip commercials).

2. On some days,it would periodically keep asking me to input my password, like it lost it somehow.

The interface was pretty slick, and the deal they had was pretty good, I got to see AXS and Velocity channels I lost when I cut the cord to ATT Uverse.

But it just isn't ready for primetime to me...glitchy and no DVR yet.

I may look again when they add DVR to the service, but who knows when that will be.
