A lie by statistics - Covid vaccination numbers

National, state, regional, and local politics. Who's doing what to whom, and what you can do about it. How-to-get-action messages are encouraged. "How the government fucked up my life" stories are encouraged. Sharing new methods for cheating on taxes is encouraged. Sample "letters to congresscritters" are encouraged. Apathy and "I can't do anything" posts are discouraged. Left, right, centrist, or any other form of political-economic systems are all up for discussion. Be prepared to defend yourself, or at least have a good line of bullshit ready. Extensive quoting of economists and philosophers is frowned upon. We want to hear what YOU have to say, not what some constipated, impotent, dead guy dreamt up while suffering from the DT's over a hundred years ago thought.

A lie by statistics - Covid vaccination numbers

Post by Das Troll » Thu Feb 25, 2021 5:35 pm

I'm sure a lot of you have heard that the Biden administration is planning on vaccinating 100 million Americans in 100 days. According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, this is going to outpace the Trump admin by quite a lot.

This is where things get dicey. While this is true, what she is doing is called a lie by statistics. When Trump left office we were already up to vaccinating 1 million people a day. But how can she say that she's going to do so much more if she also said that the Biden administration was going to do a million a day? Simple, the Biden admin is starting at a million and the Trump admin had to start at zero. The trickery is the fact that the average for the Trump admin between the time the vaccine came out and the time the Trump admin left is 500k(ish). Simple math averaging shows that.

The Biden administration is making a huge deal over nothing. Their covid vaccination layout plan isn't very much different than Trumps. The fact that they're saying that Trump left them with no covid plan is a flat out lie. Vaccination is going at nearly the same pace under the Biden admin as it was under the Trump admin.

Well yeah, it's like how Trump really only had 8 months dealing with Covid before the election.

I'm not getting the vaccine. It's globally illegal to force that shit upon someone.

I'm all for choice. Get it or don't, it's no issue of mine.

My main concern with the vaccine is that you have to sign a waiver absolving them of any side effects. Fuck. That. If I go blind, deaf, paralized, or dead I want money.

Blind is something I taught myself to never worry about. I watch most movies by listening so I don't think I would be affected very much. But deaf would suck since I would be able to finish learning Romanian.

I got it for my job. First shot was easy, second shot put me down for the night. Fever, night sweats, lack of sleep. I was fine the next day.

I think that happened to my dad's friend. But I am not sure if it's common or not.
