    I never claimed there was.

    I said that citing police and fire protection or highways or other public infrastructure as examples of socialism is false. There are many socialist programs in the US,...

    Denmark is not a socialist country.

    The post offices, police stations, F-16's etc are owned by the taxpayer, who also pays the salaries of the people that are tasked with carrying out the duties...

    The first is nonsense, taxes are not "the means of production". They are just taxes. The beneficiaries are everyone, in those examples.

    The second is exactly why your examples are not socialism....

    I used to spend a lot of time in Charleston. There was a building boom in the late 90's. The construction crews were funny. The roofers were all Mexican. The sheetrockers were all Salvadoran. Framers...

    Politicians declare victory and we move on.

    We didn't exactly overwhelm the health care system, it's about as underwhelmed as I've ever seen it. We've protected it about half to death.

    Enough...

    No, what I said was this:
    I did not do any calculations of benefits.

    The way it works is, it's a "points system". You get a point every quarter you earn $2500 or more. It does not make any...

    None of those- with the exception of Social Security- is anything to do with socialism.

    Social Security is socialist in nature, because it is redistributive by design. It takes money from young...

    It's not an aero part, it would have required a HT cert for the process and they wouldn't have missed the timer.

    But you're right, there is no 1018 on (at least) commercial airplanes. They always...

    $4K will buy a pretty decent truck if you're willing to look for a while. That's not it.

    I sold a towmotor like that one for $800...

    I have a bunch of reduced shank extension taps. They aren't very hard to find.

    Here ya go, do your own calculations.

    The US is currently ranked 12th in deaths per...

    I wasn't the one making the comparisons. It was the author in your piece that did that.

    He singles out these (exclusively republican) Governors, apparently without even looking to see what the...

    People in glass houses...

    The author should have checked the stats before making his comparisons. Dallas has 1/5 the infections and 1/3 mortality rate of Dublin. Florida, Georgia, Texas are all...

    Haven't forgot the percent sign at the start of the program have you?

    Call me skeptical on this one. Wealthy people do not really end up in nursing homes. They have better options like just hiring a live-in nurse.

    Statistically speaking, the nursing home community...

    Bob, I can't answer the why- 80% of Michigan's cases are in the Detroit metro, and that is a pretty depressed area economically. That might play into it.

    Agree that the militia types should not be...

    This machine received RS232 just fine in the past?

    I'm sure you thought of this- but are you set for the correct input device? If it's set to look for the card, and you're sending over the serial,...

    The other day I picked up a stat in passing, I can't recall the State they were talking about. This would have been on Fox. What they said was that the average age of death in nursing homes- I think...

    The guy at the top does not impress me at all. Redford. The original test was lost in bureaucratic BS for 28 days FFS.

    The guidance changes practically every week. You can't get decent numbers...
  21. Oh of course, none of the reporting has been...

    Oh of course, none of the reporting has been consistent. Not between States, and not between countries. And what even defines a case and death is all over the place.

    I agree with that. But the CDC...

    9.5% is the CFR. That's the percentage of known cases of COVID in Michigan who died. That's above the US average of 5.8%

    Michigan's death rate from COVID is 55.2 per 100,000. The US overall is...

    I gave both numbers. We are 12th in deaths per capita, not 5th.

    Case fatality rate reflects quality of the health care system and and the level of testing, since more testing will identify more...

    That chart is a 7-day rolling average, not a current total. IOW, last week's numbers.

    Overall the US is 12th down the list on per capita mortality, below almost all of Europe.

    As far as quality...

    I posted one source a while back. There is a lot of reporting on the nursing home situation in the media.

    Go to the New York dashboard, there is a link to the nursing home data. It's a pdf file...
