39. Oh, I am aware of the RW posting; they don't miss many opportunities,

 

so it is not so strange. The author was probably taking advantage of some blatant irony, made possible by the posting I made. But irony passes by like a noisy locomotive on this site.

As to that posting, we can always talk about both measures. But what has been done is to create a "new" measure (MassShootings© or apples), and then make the dubious case that they have increased massively when the only longitudinal measure we have is for the last 4 or so years of the life of the new measure, OR we must measure MS against the older Mass Murder defnition -- oranges. Boy, that 'll get you a ready-made increase!

In other words, what is the data for justifying the contention that MassShootings© have increased massively?

The controllers & MSM love the new measure, and have pasted together a rationale for some big increase; the RW says to the controller "fair game: By your own standards, the biggest increase was on Obama's watch," hence my errant heat-seeking missile metaphor.

Am I making myself clear?
