Maybe they think there are only 331 people in the United States.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

Randy: What the @#$%& are you talking about?

It'll end up there (other side) anyway. It was a quickly corrected flub. When was the last time anyone connected to this administration corrected a flub?

I guess there's no math prerequisite for that job.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

It's like those Class Action settlements, a couple of people get $1 Million, everyone else gets $1.53.

Yang's $1K/mo plan would total $1 Million after 83 years of payments.

I've seen that same scenario (the tweet) applied to something else (another situation where 100s of millions was spent).

Oooh, this is fun! To get to your first billion would take 83,333 years! To match Jeff Bezo's net worth (116B) would take 9,741,666 years!

I didn't say anything political. Of course, everyone knew the politics of the participants. So I just wondered how long it would take to fling it to the 'other side'.

It just illustrates how little the Left understands basic arithmetic. Confiscate all the wealth of all the billionaires in the USA, and you'll have free medical care, free college, and lots more free stuff forever, right?

This post illustrates how little the Right understands what the Left is trying to say.
