Re: Good Question

didn't think you would get how they used statistics rather than hard numbers.

 

Bet you were alarmed when you read in 1987 that the Swedish murder rate doubled, too.

 

Went from two to four.

Re: Tattle tale

So rsBS, you don’t want any regulations, you don’t federal regulations, you don’t the regulations you don’t like or what?? You trust your fellow rightwinger and all the big Corps to do the right thing or to do the things that give them the most profit??

They argue how successful Canadian immigrants are, why do they want to limit immigration at all?  Why?

Re: oh bruce

California is trying to break itself in two. Who can blame them. They have the highest poverty rate in the nation.

California’s job and economic growth has outpaced much of the nation in recent years. That growth, however, has not eliminated one of the state’s biggest challenges: poverty.

This week, State Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes called poverty California’s No. 1 priority during a forum of legislative leaders in Sacramento.

Mayes, who represents parts of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, claimed the state’s poverty rate is higher than any state in the nation when considering factors such as cost-of-living.

"If you look at the official poverty measure in California, we’re about average with the rest of the country," Mayes said. "But if you use the supplemental poverty measure, we are in the lead. We have the highest poverty rate in the nation -- higher than New Mexico, higher than any of the southern states, Louisiana, Alabama, higher than Idaho."

As averaged from 2013 to 2015, California had America’s 17th-highest poverty rate, 15 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. But, by a newer, more comprehensive Census accounting, California’s true poverty rate is an eye-popping 20.6 percent—the highest in the nation.
