I know, you think I bring this up too often. That economic inequality is going to destroy our nation.
Back when I was involved with some 10 different research projects every week, I realized that one of the weakest points in my training was statistics. I needed those skills to discern if what we were doing was actually an improvement or not. As a techie, I was taught to believe (yes, that’s the verb) that statistical analysis would remove any bias I would bring to the analysis.
I have often reminded folks that the ability of America to remain a great nation revolves around the stability it garners from its middle class. The evidence (including that from around the world, as well as history) demonstrates that oligarchies are antithetical to liberal constitutions- and vice versa.
Here we go again. It looks like the GOP is ready to throw a bunch of monkey wrenches into the Obamacare (PPACA, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) system.
You’ve all heard folks ask this- Are you still happy with the folks for whom you voted? This year, it’s been terribly poignant, since so many folks fell for the bait and switch politicians. The ones who promised to do A and then promptly did B- or nothing at all.
Earth Day. April 22. I remember the first one, way back in 1970, when I was working for an environmental regulatory authority (my one stint working for the government). Now the celebration is held around the world (some 193 countries and growing).
