Cuomo’s Dishonest Math

January 7, 2021 pm31 3:12 pm

Pitcher is getting shelled. “When you going to take him out?!?!” scream the fans. The manager says “when they have more hits than at bats” Huh? He just said he’s never taking the pitcher out. Idiot. And dishonest. Hits are never more than at bats. Why not just say what he means?

Repression’s getting bad in a far off country. People ask an NGO when they are getting added to a watch list. “When the number arrested is greater than the population” They just said they’re never adding the country. The number arrested can’t be more than the total population.Idiots. And dishonest.

A kid seems to be in the wrong level of a class. He is doing poorly on every assignment, every test. “We should move him back a level” – but the AP answers “we can move him if he gets more questions wrong than there are questions on the test.” She just said that she’s never moving the kid. The number wrong can never exceed the total number of questions. Idiot. Dishonest.

COVID is going up in NYC. When will they close schools. Cuomo says “when the rate in school is higher than the rate in the community” Huh? He just said he’s never closing schools.

Think about it. Who has the highest rates?

  1. People with symptoms
  2. People who have been exposed to others who are positive
  3. People who have recently traveled
  4. Random people

In the community, all four groups get tests. In fact, categories 2 and 3 get a lot of tests.

In schools, category 1 does not get in the front door. Category 2 and 3 are not supposed to get in.

So when will a random sample of people without symptoms who have not recently been exposed have a higher positivity rate than a random group that includes people with symptoms and recent exposure? Never. Dishonest idiot.

“In a reversal, Governor Andrew Cuomo will now allow schools in all counties to remain open even if the seven-day positivity rate for COVID-19 within those counties exceeds 9%, long considered the state’s threshold to close schools.”
