    Because jobs are always being created and destroyed.

    It's the net number they are counting. 10 million jobs lost, 12.5 million new jobs. Net 2.5 million.

    I don't know how Canada does it. The US...

    Establishment consensus was that in May we would shed another 7.5 million jobs. Instead we gained back 2.5 million.

    I would call that good news, hopefully it's a sign that we will have a steep...

    I have 4 drill presses, all have different diameter columns.

    I remove the gear racks- the tables are not heavy. The racks limit the up/down range and prevent the table from rotating 360 degrees- a...

    The authors of that original study retracted it today.

    They said they couldn't allow peer review of the data- it was secret. Can't disclose proprietary information, etc.

    Bill you may be right, but it's pretty grim outlook then for those cities. The looted areas will just become slums, businesses will not rebuild if they think the police will not defend their...

    Hell, in Minneapolis they set the precinct on fire.

    Mayor said "It's just a building".

    Pretty sure his political career is finished...

    Because they have been given permission by liberal mayors who told their police departments to stand down. No mystery here.

    Then call it the "welfare state", I don't care what term you use.

    The US, like all western democracies, is a market economy with a welfare state overlaid on top. The only differences are the...

    My brother filled one of those seats. He was working in a radio station prior. Retired a couple years ago with a nice pension.

    He was a supervisor on 9/11, got pulled out to fly E-3 orbits off...

    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 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...

    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...
