No, that's an example of excluding other data.

Unemployment IS down. Again, you can argue how or why, or it's relevance - all subjective, but the hard facts are that it is down 500k.

You can also argue that 300k left the labor force. It doesn't matter, because it still affects the unemployment rate. You can't argue unemployment hasn't "really" dropped, except by 500k because that's all it measures. You are applying two different data sets, and making a correlation.

Now, your correlation is not wrong. Nor is it irrelevant. But you can't use one to make the other say something different.

Back to the cup.

I've now added tea. Doesn't mean I didn't start with water, but it does make my comment "this is tea" truthful. So the real question is - is it still water or tea?

Excluding data, I shall remember that one.

Number one cause of selective bias.

The economy blows, but as long as we pay no attention to column 2-60, and just look at unemployment, it's just peachy, ain't it?

Re: Washington State Mall Shooting: 3 Dead

This happened right next to my city, and scary that I go shop at that mall and you never know when your life might be taken by a complete stranger without cause.

Re: Washington State Mall Shooting: 3 Dead

Sad, another mass shooting and it's not even top headlines anymore. This is becoming the new norm.

This is the third time there is a shooting close by in the mall or store, but they don't make the news nationally sadly. Surprised this did.

Maybe he was frustrated because he was 20 years old and still in HS.
