Even by American political standards, I don't think Hillary is turbo-corrupt. She's definitely no innocent, but she doesn't come close to the Republican Party having a platform that's 50% corporate shilling 50% religious pandering.

In post 2807, T S O wrote:Here is an article by the Gatestone Institute explaining the migrant crime rate in Germany.

I did some number crunching and though this looks kinda scary when you look at this, in the context of other numbers it's... really not.

Okay, so the immigrant crime rate in and of itself is increasing. As the crime rate in Germany in general is rising, and since the numbers given are based on number of crimes performed by immigrants therefore obviously that number is going to rise as the immigrant population rises, maybe that data isn't as scary as it looks. Let's put the numbers in a format which provides more valid comparisons.

This article gives us the number of about 400,000 immigrant crimes in 2015, potentially more. While I can't find the total number of crimes in Germany, the various numbers I've seen hover around the 6 million mark. Let's be biased in the favour of your argument and increase the immigrant crimes to 500,000 and put the total at around 5.5 million crimes. That means that immigrants account for roundabout (500,000/5,500,000*100=) 9.09% of all crime in Germany.

German total population is about 81 million. Now, from the data I can find, the population of immigrants in German lies around the 10 million mark as of over a year ago. 10 million/81 million*100 = 12.3% of German populations are immigrants.

So, the percentage of Germans who are immigrants is larger than the percentage of crimes in German committed by immigrants.

Now, I get that these numbers are estimations and you could argue they're inaccurate, but in all honesty, they're more likely to be inaccurate in your argument's favour. I was generous to your bias when using crime rates, and the German immigrant population given is likely considerably lower than the real number since it seems to be not entirely up-to-date information and we all know that the immigrant population has increased a lot more recently.

I'm not going to argue this further, this will be my final word on the matter. This is more a point in general really - before looking at scary-looking numbers and worrying, analyse closer. Look at numbers in context of other numbers. Don't panic.


Oh my god.

Someone who understands how data works.

In post 17518, Ginngie wrote:Can someone quickly shoot down the flat tax theory where everyone pays a the same tax percent


If I make 50k a year, and 10% of that is taxed, I only have 40k and I notice that because life has a certain fixed cost (mostly). If I make 10 million and I pay 10% in taxes, idgaf b/c I still have 9 million which is still tons of money. I could probably spend that 9 million (or most of it), but what happens if I earn like 100 million in a year? It's hard to spend 90 million, and a lot of that money would just sit around and do nothing (in capitalism, money sitting around doing nothing is bad).

Basically, for each incremental dollar you earn, the less each next dollar is worth to you in terms of your ability to do things. Things like food, shelter, healthcare, etc give everyone a relatively similar minimal cost of living, and there's a degree to which you can balloon that pretty easily (hobbies etc), but after a point you just can't spend money and it sits around. This is why a flat tax is bad - it punishes poor people relative to rich people.

2) Published an interview with a KKK leader accompanied with a doctored photo of a black student getting lynched on campus

Remember, a lot of people thought they were getting economic populism with Trump. He just ended up being an ordinary pro-business anti-middle class conservative instead.


Honestly Tulsi Gabbard is what the "Trumpian"-wing of the Republican party wants the Republican party to look like.

Fun fact we actually have everything we need to end HIV from a science perspective and instead of trying to dump more money into trying to create a vaccine that will never work we should instead focus on treatment-as-prevention and pre-exposure prophylaxis but that's hard and requires acknowledging gay men (and especially gay men of color) so nah we'll throw chump change at scientists

I'm aware I grew up in SF and refuse to move back because the NIMBYism ruined everything.

One thing DC has actually done well over the past decade is continue to build more housing. We also have our dumb height limits on buildings but it's honestly less bad than SF somehow

This doesn’t feel like a late-night-comedy gotcha interview, though.

If you asked me in a normal interview at a Warren rally why I supported Warren, I’d be able to put together at least a vaguely cogent answer without prep. This guy failed that benchmark, which is clearly indicative of something bad
