Poor Old Pussy Statistics

I followed a tweet from Tom Leykis (hopefully shown above courtesy of twitter) and eventually got to a Bloomberg article “Worsening U.S. Divorce Rate Points to Improving Economy” dated 18 February 2014 by Steve Matthews. I point out two quotes as typical crap of the MSM.

Quote #1:

Rising stock and home prices are giving couples greater financial security. Household net worth for the third quarter last year was more than $8 trillion above its pre-recession peak of $69 trillion reached in same period in 2007, data from the Federal Reserve showed in December.

According to my calculations ( 6th root of 1 + 8/69, minus 1, times 100% ) using the stated data, the average annual change in household net worth was 1.85%. If I do the same calculation for the CPI-U from December 2007 to December 2013, I get ( 6th root of 1 + ( (233.049 – 210.036) / 210.036 ), minus 1, times 100% = ) 1.75%. Your inflation like your ‘basket’ of goods and services could vary, especially if the Obama administration mouthpieces are lying. The ‘gain’ was simply nominal due to inflation, and likely not enough to keep up with true inflation.

The US gubbermint only gets sampling data to track net changes in jobs. There is no way to tell if a net 100 job gain is from an absolute 1 million job gain and an absolute 999,900 job loss, or an absolute 100 job gain and an absolute zero job loss, or something else. All we know is that if there is a net increase of X jobs over a certain period of time, there were at least X new jobs created, unless some people were replaced by new hires in which case it could indeed be less than X jobs created,[update, 28 July 2015: retraction of bad logic, training one’s replacement would eventually tally offsetting job loss,] so what the fuck do they or we know about ‘jobs created’?

Even if the Obama mouths meant net job increase for ‘jobs created’, they were still lying. CNN is happy to be too stupid to specify NET FUCKING JOBS like all the MSM retards! Changes in non-farm payroll are net, Einstein. We don’t know non-net.

The point: The oracles of the MSM and US gubbermint are lying about the economy and your standard of living.

Quote #2:

After a breakup, women’s per capita household incomes drop as much as 15 percent, and they have higher poverty rates, said Nicholas Wolfinger, sociology professor at the University of Utah.

“Divorce takes a devastating economic toll on women,” he said.

The devastating effects on men, you know, the divorced with penises who file for divorce in a minority of cases at about 2 to 1, who lose custody more often and pay alimony more often (than ex-wives), who are driven to suicide (and I will show in a later post, driven by psycho-subversive abuse by wives/ex-wives concomitant with government legal and psycho-subversive force)?

*crickets*

I'm feed up with herd people, so civil and uncivilized, these feckless barbarians with manicures. Where is Galt's Gulch? and where are the people to go there? Who am I? Who is John Galt?

    You know as well as I that the reason for this silence is the fact that the masculine sex is consistently seen as wholly expendable. In wartime, in peacetime, at home or on foreign soil…it matters not, especially to the government at large. A sad state of affairs indeed, and one that must be changed.

    [RD: What’s worse is that the clone army troops see themselves, and their proud parents see them, as expendable. Elite men get rich on blood given on purpose. Smedley Butler warned us War is a Racket, but the boyz want chest medals not freedom.]
