Cuomo killed grannies and lied about it -

According to an audit released Tuesday by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, Cuomo’s Health Department failed to account for 4,100 nursing home deaths and undercounted the coronavirus death toll in nursing homes by as much as 50% from April 2020 to February 2021.

Can you explain why if the Republican States are so great why eight of the top 10 states with the highest murder rate are Republican?

Here are the 10 states with the highest murder rate according to the FBI:

Louisiana (12.4 per 100k)
Missouri (9.8 per 100k)
Nevada (9.1 per 100k)
Maryland (9 per 100k)
Arkansas (8.6 per 100k)
Alaska (8.4 per 100k)
Alabama (8.3 per 100k)
Mississippi (8.2 per 100k)
Illinois (7.8 per 100k)
South Carolina (7.8 per 100k)

Speaking of inequality....



Biden's Remarks at 'Equal Pay' Event Were a Gaffe-Filled Dumpster Fire



Really? People were expecting a "non-Gaffe-Filled Dumpster Fire"?


Silly people.

Gregory

Punchy... no no no no.

Intentional homicide isn't murder, necessarily. It can include suicides and would include self defense killings.

Nice try.

George Rebane

PaulE 154pm - Again Paul, what is your point? I made mine in the commentary. Do you have one, especially in light of Greg's 222pm?

"Punchy... no no no no.

I'd throw him a bone. It's probably his first non-Trump post in some time.

So, Paul Emery, what do you think is the highest indicator for murder rate?

scenes

...as a side note, the District of Columbia's murder rate is roughly double that of Louisiana's. Must be all those Democratic gubmint employees.

Bill Tozer

Dr. Rebane writes, “ To me the information presented here is yet another confirmation that the Democrat Party is fundamentally evil, especially in how it has bamboozled the poor, and succored its rich into believing they have the moral high ground on the nation’s conservatives. The Great Divide cannot happen soon enough. (H/T to reader and correspondent)”

Thus, the change has set in. The word EVIL to describe the Lefties is becoming common place in Conservation and Libertarian leaning editorials. Much more common than 2 years ago. Not longer hyperbole or used for shock value, but a statement of fact. The Change.

Once, it was we saw them as good people with bad ideas, while they almost saw us as bad people with bad ideas…which never has changed. Turn the page and it became we saw them as people with bad ideas. Turn the page again to bring us to the present and it is we now we see them as evil people with evil ideas.

Florida governor Rick DeSantis is writing the playbook, at less as R governors go, on how to deal with them and the Enemy of the People, aka, the Democrat Party News Networks. Masterful. The template. It’s how to do it.

Unfortunately, too many R governors toss in the towel when the pressure builds and builds as the biggest companies in the state and donors stop contributing because of pressure from the WOKE.

Disney is probably the biggest corporation in FL with thousands of employees and cruise lines and Disneyworld, yet DeSantis did not bend a knee or lose two seconds telling them that sexual orientation studies have no place in FL’s kindergarten thru third grade.

The Left has always been OCD about the sexualizing kids and toddlers. Gov. DeSantis sez ‘Go pound sand and eat a grunt sandwich and die, Disney, and school boards and wacko Marxist pervs.’No on Gov DeSantis’s watch, on in FL public schools.

The Left are evil. Those are not bad ideas, they are evil ideas.

My 1:54 was specifically murder. If you would have followed the link you would have found this:

"Murder Rate by State 2022

In the United States crime rates vary significantly by state. Population density and economic factors. Murder, or homicide, is a violent crime. The homicide rate in the U.S."

I will only respond if you use Paul , Emery or Paul Emery. Three choices.

Scott O

Maybe if Paul checked the murder rates of the largest cities of those states, he'd find out something of value rather than broad brush an entire state. And maybe check who runs those cities. And of course if Paul was actually interested in educating himself in a statistic, he might look into the ethnicity of the offenders.
Whoops - now Paul is no longer all that interested in facts and he'll change the subject entirely or ask why Trump didn't end all crime when he was president.
Maybe if Paul really wanted to check into crime rates and stats he'd be interested in what the Soros squads are doing to the crime rates in general beyond one cherry-picked type of crime.

Gregory

Well, that might be a bit difficult for Punchy, so I'll help.

If you click the link you gave
https://worldpopulationreview.com/state-rankings/murder-rate-by-state

You go to a page with a nice graphic with hexagothe Fns per state, in a frame with a title bar, murder rate by state, on the left side, and text that goes on about the FBI being the source. On the right side of that title bar, you'll see "show source". Interesting.

Click that and you get "homicide rate by state". Hmmm. Click that, and you get to this page:
https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom/sosmap/homicide_mortality/homicide.htm

Golly! It's a CDC page, not FBI, and it's definitely homicide data.

CDC is notorious for fiddling numbers to make firearms appear to be like an infectious agent. Sometimes these things are innocent errors but based on the hidden info, I doubt it.

You're welcome, Punch.

I just linked to FBI stats on States and Murders which are not disputed. Feel free to did deeper and let me know what you find.

Don Bessee

Thats one way to crater mid terms -

The vast majority, 77.3 percent, said “yes,” while just 9.3 percent said “no.”

Individuals hold the same sentiments across party lines, as 67 percent of Democrats want Biden to prioritize American energy production, as do 88.6 percent of Republicans and 77.6 percent of independents.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/03/16/poll-majority-say-biden-should-prioritize-increasing-american-energy-production/

No one trusts his lies and the crumble like a stale cookie -

Mr. Blas's chart shows the opposite, that oil companies failed to pass on the cost of the crude price increase to customers at the gas pump.

According to most recent data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), 56% of the cost of gasoline is the hard cost of crude oil that the refiners have to pay. The chart shows that the price increase at the pump failed to keep up with the incredible jump in crude oil prices. It also shows that oil companies were making less money, not more on the way up.

;-)

Bill Tozer

Punchy,, Puncy, Punchy

Here is another fact that is not disputed. Black Americans (13% of the US population) commit half the murders in the USA. Since the majority of those murderers are male and female Blacks commit around 10% of less of the Black homicides, we can toss out the females (1/2 the Black community) and that means 6.5% of the population commits almost half of all murders.

Of those Black Americans who commit the crime of homicide, 90+ of those murders are perpetrated on Blacks. Black on Black. White murder whites in case you were wondering. Yes, there is come crossover, but mostly in the 10% range outside their race.

Now, let’s look where those murders are happening to see if there is any concentrated areas. Oh my. Chicago, Philly, New Orleans, Detroit, Los Angeles, DC, Baltimore, Newark, all major cities off the top of my head. Think PA has a R Gov, or is that Maryland?

Dilution is the solution. Think the mayor of Las Vegas is an independent. One rotten apple can spoil the whole barrel and one Urban Eyesore can spoil the whole state.

So, if we truly cared about Blacks (and minorities) being murdered, we should go after that 6-7% of the population and black homicides will drop 90% and the homicides in the USA will drop by half.

Truly, you are a grave dancer, Punchy. Standing on the bodies of murdered folks to make some reprehensible po,itical point about Red States. Does standing on those homicide victims make you feel six inches taller or a foot?

Evil is as evil does.

Gregory

Toes, there's also the issue that Black Murderers Matter and they mostly aren't Republicans. Mostly.

There's another problem... is the determination done from the initial crime report or is it after it had worked its way through the legal system with the perpetrator found guilty?

I'm unsure what link Punch is looking at now or what he thinks the data says, but I can wait.

Paul Emery

"No response Bill unless you use my name."

That's funny, I didn't get a response and I even followed your rules.

--------------------

Speaking of hate facts, here's one I ran into (or at least as 'fact'ish as you'll see in a sociology paper).

"In sum, our aggregate analysis reveals that the effects of economic inequality on arrest rates for violent crimes vary by race.For whites, high income
inequality is a robust predictor of high violence rates,but for blacks it is a poor
predictor.In contrast to what one would anticipate on the basis of the literature
(but see Sampson1987),economic inequality does not appear to be a particularly important cause (i.e.,not in a direct,contemporaneous sense)of high rates of
black violent crime."

Maybe you should upgrade to those electric shopping carts one sees in major supermarkets. A Hover Round would fit through you front door. You can always use the dead black bodies of homicide victims as stops for your electric dog walking buggy. Or, hang one on the wall and call him Art.

...in any case, the whole murder thing is old hat, the arguments are always the same.

Given the US Left's swing from healthcare-for-all and taxing the rich to Crazytown, I think that mental health is a much better kind of metric.

I mean, there's umpteen studies out there that show the same thing as this thread:

"1/n Two interesting findings thus far from my analysis of Pew's March 2020 COVID-19 survey. First, white (and especially 'very') liberals are far more likely than all other ideological-racial subgroups to report being diagnosed with a mental health condition. "

Paul 5:21 - You're just repeating yourself, Paul.
I'm well aware of what you posted. Did you have some kind of point to make? Or maybe respond in some way to dispute or expand on what I wrote?
George's point is that the Dems have a pattern of failing to bring about what they claim they will accomplish for our society. In California the Dems' policies have resulted in an obvious disaster for most of the citizens of the state.
Showing up here with a single point of murder rates does nothing to alter the facts that George has pointed out. States are not one big uniform homogeneous blob. Murder rates vary depending on many factors but this is obviously beyond your skill set to discover. You stumble onto one chart that you stupidly believe makes some kind of point in your favor and are then no longer curious. Some of us care about the incidences and causes of crime and murder but you lefties care no more about it than to use it as a club to attempt to make points and feel better about yourself.

TODAY IN WOKERY: WHITEBOARDS AND “WHITENESS” IN PHYSICS

And these are teachers! HA -

The nation’s largest union was involved in its third factually incorrect tweet of the week on Wednesday when the president of the American Federation of teachers incorrectly spelled "Ukraine."

"We #StandWithUkriane," American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten tweeted on Wednesday morning before deleting the tweet shortly after.

The spelling mistake came a day after the AFT was slammed on social media for promoting a tweet where the Ukrainian flag was depicted upside down in a post that was also deleted.

Ukraine's flag features blue on top of yellow – symbolizing the blue sky over a bountiful field. However, in the photo posted by the union, the color yellow was above the color blue
