Quote from: petep on March 23, 2020, 04:48:57 AMThere is a great deal of generalized average data. One must drill down into the numbers. Have you examined the death rates by age group. Business insider published this chart. 80 and over its high, 70 and over about half as high. 60 - 70 far less. By the time you get to 50-60 it's a tiny fraction. The solutions do not match the problem. It's a akin to saying America has a gun problem. No, America has some inner city cesspools with a gang problem. Of over 3000 us counties, most all violence happens it tiny zip codes in about 1 percent of the counties. Defining the problem better helps with the solutionThat has not happened.
Quote from: Possum on March 23, 2020, 05:31:43 AMA gun problem is not contagious, you do understand that ? Is the gun problem spreading? Can you get a gun problem by contact? Yes, defining the problem can help with the solution, your example is no where near that.
Quote from: petep on March 23, 2020, 05:36:32 AMyou understand the analogy is not between the virus and gun violence right???? Not sure how you missed that...re-read my post slowly, the focus in on interpreting data...The analogy is when evaluating data, one must drilled down past overall numbers and averages...read or listen, and then talk, or write
Quote from: Possum on March 23, 2020, 05:43:02 AMAnswer the question, is gun violence contagious? The problem with the virus is not just people get sick, its that it spreads quickly, you do see that, right? read or listen, and then talk, or write
Quote from: petep on March 23, 2020, 05:48:14 AMyou are pivoting...my analogy, as I clearly explained, is not comparing guns and this virus as a danger,,,,the analogy is about interpreting data and my frustration that the solutions do not match the problem...if you want to start a new thread and ask me if I think a gun will give you a disease, I will say no...does that help...

Quote from: walkstall on March 22, 2020, 01:54:56 AMI am not see that in the young people that can vote that I talk with. But then this is farming country and not the big city.
Quote from: WMK on March 23, 2020, 10:30:04 AM"Farming country" and the "big city" - the former feeds America and the latter bleeds America!
Quote from: Solar on January 21, 2020, 05:27:10 AMGet ready, the WuFlu is about to knock the Dims Impeachment off the front page. Seriously, this thing is spreading fast.zerohedge@zerohedge·Coronavirus patients have been identified in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, as well as Taiwan, Japan, Thailand and South Korea. And now, the US
Quote from: taxed on March 23, 2020, 05:47:41 PMJust looking at the date for this first post... January 21. Wow.
Quote from: Solar on March 23, 2020, 08:28:18 AMThere is a bleed over in those numbers, 19 to 30 but they aren't breaking it down that way. But the real issue isn't who is suffering from it, but the rate of transmission in what age groups groups.These kids normally don't travel, as compared to working adults, which raises their exposure rate, as well as transmissible issues.There will most likely be hotspots all over the country, most likely intercity shitholes run by Dims. Just look to Ca as proof. Which raises another quandary, rounding up homeless and cramming them together, much like cruise ship debacle.
