Your Level of Concern About the Coronavirus......on a scale of 1-10

C'mon JK, "Throw out" in a statistical post just means we consider a data set without certain subsets. Your bolded comment directed at Raiders is uncalled for.

In this case, the Top 3 states in deaths have 47.3% of the deaths with just 10.7% of pop. the Top 2 have 42.6% deaths with 8.6% of pop.

JK, ever heard of a horse having a race or two "thrown out"? The meaning is the same here.
In horse racing you throw out entries that you deem non competetive.

In Raider world, you throw out that which suits your narrative. In this case death.

Your affinity for manipulating numbers lacks tact here.

Nonsense. I realize you don't like the data, it doesn't fit the liberal narrative. Liberals pray for more deaths in Sweden and South Dakota.

Separating out the top states shows just shows how they skew the US total. Really simple to grasp.

I would give that some thought if I was a Liberal although I think politicizing those numbers is as fruitless as manipulating them.

I am a card carrying member of the Progressive Conservative Party in Canada. My take on Liberalism in the states is that it has long ago abandonned its mandate and that current fiscal crisis has no room for today's version of liberalism.

What I dislike is stupidity. It mixes very poorly with Republican values, policy and the ability to govern.

Notice I didn't politicize the 2 or 3 states or the other 47. If you don't like politicizing them, then don't. Again, you don't like data that doesn't suit your agenda, clear and simple.
 
Throw out?


Those are people's lives asshole.
They're not
The president has discussed obama more than the dead in the last 2 weeks. Hes yet to offer any face to face condolences of a single victims family. It's over, we won.

Jeesh Bob you've always been one of my favorites. I'm a liberal and I'm in no way cheering, rooting or any other imbesilic term you just gave me and millions like myself. I wish death upon no one and that includes trump.
I was promised no deaths and 12 cases 90 days ago today and day one of the shelter in place I began praying something I rarely do.
Please dont see the world as black and white as who someone votes for.
 
I'm mostly a Liberatarian, I clash often with Republican policy as well as the current Democratic Socialist views. Unfortunately, you produce a lot of stupid posts.
I will give your assessment of my posts all the consideration it deserves. Your opinion means something to someone I am sure, best of luck in your search. I hope those with whom you clash are as awestruck with your views as I.

Enjoy your evening.

Why is it the liberal thinkers have been deemed nihilist? Certainly doesn't jive with the rest of their ideology.

Doesn't seem very well thought out and even less appropriately applied.
 
Returning to the premise that Sweden has responded to Covid successfully by not responding at all, let's compare the loss of live with the rest of Scandinavia.

Sweden 3925
Denmark 561
Finland 306
Norway 235

Of course, I didn't say all liberals, probably I should have said most of the Trump Deranged Syndrome folks that I encounter here and on Twitter. Of course, they always seem to deny it.

And isn't it odd that none of the Trump haters here seems to respond positively to my post about Sweden producing a 9 day run of declining 7 day average deaths? Not out of the woods but better than more death instead of less.

Another label.

Trump Deranged Syndrome.

What do you label someone who by a static set of indicators, sans rhetoric, media bias or outside influence, has determined that Trump has done a terrible job, is not qualified or fit to lead?

I'm not gonna accept the trainwreck that is Trump because some full of himself fukk slapped a label on me , fukk I care? That's a loser's lot, not mine.

You need a pat on the back pal?

Sweden messed up.

But you are wonderful Bob, here's to you Bob!!!
 
apples to apples

Sweden made a big mistake.
Dude, your sample set of 3 other countries is so impressive.

If Sweden made such a bad mistake , how come it is in the middle of the pack?

Let's compare apples to apples, deaths/M of the major Western European countries:

Belgium 795
Spain 612
Italy 539
UK 536
France 433
Sweden 389
Netherlands 338
Portugal 126
Germany 100

Have a good evening.
 
Thank you for the acknowledgement. I taught for 15 years and was in administration for another 5. 9 of those years were in the classroom teaching anywhere from 5th grade to HS social studies. The other 6 were teaching PE. My degree is in history. But a couple of schools I coached at put me in PE because of my coaching resume. Allowed me to have weights class for football players during the day, which was nice. I didn't mind it one bit. Wear shorts to work every day? Sign me up..

And yes. I put up with a lot of shit. I could write a book. A long book.
I disagree with you politically, but I agree with Drink about how important teachers are, it amazes me how little they get paid relative to the importance of their job, teachers deserve better treatment than they get and certainly more pay

Our country has done a marvelous job of defunding and devaluing public education for years

As George Carlin and many others have accurately pointed out in the past, the last thing our rulers want is a society of intelligent, critical thinkers.

Two words: Betsy DeVos
 
You should know as well as anyone that Arpaio was running his jails as a "for profit" business with his family owning the companies that provided the services for Maricopa County Jails.
I've mentioned more than once that I voted against him in 2016.

That doesn't change my general stance with the original question. Don't wanna do the time, don't do the crime.
 
Sweden is also taking the herd mentality approach, no one else is. I do get your point though Billy.

Billy, do you think the entire state of Illinois should be shut down because metro Chicago has a problem?
I haven't seen any kind of effective mitigation effort in the USA at all. Mitigation won't work, isolating Chicago is a waste of time.

Mitigation only works when there is 100% buy in, proper enforcement in place and a belief that wellness is not a political agenda. See New Zealand.

When you have people prancing in the streetsnon open defiance, a president who grandstands not wearing PPE when regulations call for it, clear tribal agenda built around a global health issue, what is the point and what was the point of any containment effort at all.

The 6 week delay in any organized national response and outright denial pretty much outlined the course that should have been followed.

The entire country should be opened up immediately and let the bodies hit the floor.

Those numbers dont account for population density
 
Remember this folks? May 4th, was covered heavily by the main stream press, lots of doom and gloom , what happened?

WASHINGTON – A new government report projects COVID-19 cases will surge to about 200,000 per day by June 1, a staggering jump that would be accompanied by more than 3,000 deaths each day.


By comparison, over the last week the Centers for Disease Control reported between 23,459 and 30,787 new cases a day.


The document predicts a sharp increase in both cases and deaths beginning about May 14, according to a copy shared with The Washington Post.
