  1. I think you mean 1.3% or 1.266% if taken to three decimal points.

    1/79 = .0126582278481013 x 100% = 1.26582278481013%

    Standard rounding 1-4=down 5-9=up.

  3. — Lying
    — Incompetent

    — Malignant
    — all of the above

    If ‘malignant is too harsh, how about ‘malevolent’?

  4. dick: using the term “malignant” like that would be an insult to all forms of cancer.

  8. Clair,

    It is a common mistake, which I made at the start of this financial fiasco my ownself, which is the only reason I caught the misplaced decimal point.

    The sheer size of the real numbers being used (billions and trillions) is so difficult to relate to that fractions and percentages become blurry.

  9. Some doofus Democrat said that the problem is Republicans won’t compromise their principles and their promises to their constituents? Not a surprise; people say dumb stuff all the time.

    The problem is that the press reports it as if it were actual information and all the people on the left who aren’t actual confirmed communists, you know, open-mouthed, gap-toothed morons, with or without advanced degrees in stuff that does’t require math, suck it up as if they are receiving heaven’s final mercy beamed down for the blessed salvation of the just and righteous.

    Did I really just describe about 52% of voting Americans?
