    Sure.

    I did calculations based on available data and I posted them.

    No offense, but statistics from unbiased sources are pretty much all I am interested in discussing on this subject...not theories.

    I get that. I really do. But you must understand that statistics are very, very, very, very easily and likely falsified or manipulated. It's literally the first thing even a second-rate statistics teacher will tell you.

    Fine...take whatever you want from them.

    Believe them or not.

    But statistics from unbiased sources are all I am interested in on this subject.


    Now I am off to eat.

    Good day.

    Ummm, now you're saying BLS data is unbiased?

    And - once again - the BLS is NOT an unbiased source.

    And I want UNBIASED FACTS - not opinions.
    And also, it seems odd to do the math you were doing when BLS already publishes average hours, both for the CAR and CPS
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Not to me - but to most it seems to be...so it is an effective source at making a point.

    And also, it seems odd to do the math you were doing when BLS already publishes average hours, both for the CAR and CPS
    If I could have found the average hours of part time workers - I obviously would have used them.


    Why don't you make yourself useful and post them then?


    And while you are at it...

    I will ask again, you called John Williams of ShadowStats.com a liar.

    Where is your proof that John Williams intended to deceive and thus lied?

    Lie, only due to the burden of proving it, may be too strong.

    But John Williams and the near entirety of Shadowstats can easily be accused of Subreption.

    Well, pinqy said that he lied.

    Either he should show proof or admit he has no proof and remove the accusation.

    He?

    I'm talking about *ME*, bud. Please, let's keep it in that sphere. If you want to discuss Pingy, please Quote Pingy.

    And I consider Pingy one of the Most Reputable Fellows on this website.

    The post you quoted was directed at what pinqy typed.

    Reputable people do not call others liars' in matter-of-fact terms without proof....at least not in my book.


    Anyway, back to the subject.

    Well I'm too drunk to go into the minutinae of the discussion so I'll leave it be.

    But Pingy is a Good person on this board.

    And while, DA60, you and I disagree very much on this board I have gained a New Respect for you Recently. Just putting that out for you.
