Overnight Open Thread (3-19-2013)

More on White Man Math

It turns out that Sen. 'Lieawatha' Warren's call for a $22/hr minimum wage was even stupider that it sounded and that $22 was a cherry-picked (and exaggerated) number.

Whether you use inflation, the CPI or even 50% of the average wage as an index for the minimum wage, the numbers come out to far less than $22.

If the minimum wage in that year had been indexed to the official Consumer Price Index (CPI-U), the minimum wage in 2012 (using the Congressional Budget Office's estimates for inflation in 2012) would be at $10.52. Even if we applied the current methodology (CPI-U-RS) for calculating inflation - which generally shows a lower rate of inflation than the older measure - to the whole period since 1968, the 2012 value of the minimum wage would be $9.22. (See Figure 1.)
Using wages as a benchmark, in 1968 the federal minimum stood at 53 percent of the average production worker earnings. During much of the 1960s, the minimum wage was close to 50 percent of the same wage benchmark. If the minimum wage were at 50 percent of the production worker wage in 2012 (again, using CBO projections to produce a full-year 2012 estimate), the federal minimum would be $10.01 per hour.

Even the report that Warren likely got the number from doesn't quite go that high, and it notes that $22/hour would actually put the minimum wage above what the average production worker makes today.

Since 1968, however, productivity growth has far outpaced the minimum wage. If the minimum wage had continued to move with average productivity after 1968, it would have reached $21.72 per hour in 2012 - a rate well above the average production worker wage.

And no where is there any justification for why the minimum wage should follow average worker productivity. The fact that most jobs now involve computers and other technology doesn't mean there's suddenly extra value to an hour of flipping hamburgers or mopping a floor. It has about the value as it did back in 1970 and the chart and minimum wage reflect that.

The Minimum Wage Is Too Damn Low

Getting Rape All Wrong

So the The Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), part of the Defense Department, created this video on stopping and preventing rape and other violence.

The video opens with a depiction the brutal rape and murder of Kitty Genovese. Genovese was savagely attacked and stabbed multiple times. Her cries for help were ignored by numerous neighbors. At one point, her attacker left the scene, only to return several minutes later to rape her and repeatedly stab her again.

The video goes on to suggest preventing violence or rape by, among other strategies, encouraging dialogue or using humor.

Of course as long-time readers of the ONT know pretty much everything you've been told about the Kitty Genovese murder is untrue.

So using it as an example of people standing by during a crime is wrong on multiple planes. And beyond that this video doesn't really given any practical advice other than to get involved.

Plus even their video example is somewhat ambiguous - if I see a guy slumped on the stairs of a public building, my first decision is whether he looks homeless or not. If not, then yeah I'll check on him and/or get someone else to. But if he's a homeless type I won't bother. Why? Because I'm heartless and cruel.

Also because I know that nothing will be done other than to encourage him to move to a different building or at best a short trip to the hospital on the public dime to deal with the side effects of his own mental illness/drug abuse. So in this case I'm an experienced and informed bystander who's been down this road before.

If only real life situations were as clear-cut as seeing someone in act of murdering a woman.

Man Without Penis Bedded 100 Women

Well what's your excuse Mr. I Actually Have A Cock?

With his good looks and charming patter, it's easy to see why Andrew Wardle is a hit with the ladies.

But while he has slept with more than 100 women, there is a secret he has kept from all his admiring pals - he was born without a penis.

Andrew's birth defect has caused him mental anguish, even driving him to the brink of suicide.

But now he is preparing for ground-breaking surgery which will see him become one of the first men in the world to have an entirely new penis built from his own arm.

..."I've been to bed with over 100 women. Some were one-night stands, some long-term relationships. I've told 20 per cent of them the truth.

"The fact I didn't just want to get my leg over made me more attractive to women. I had charm and patter because it wasn't all about sex."

Okay now I feel pathetic too.

Reading the GOP's "Autopsy Report" and listening to many of the talking
heads saying they need to change their positions to get more voters reminds me
of when I was a kid in school. Occasionally I would say or do something I didn't
really want to so I could be friends with some cool kids. I found that most of
the cool kids were really dumb ass shallow jerks and I would end up feeling
dirty and stupid, and sometimes lose real friends by doing so.

So the GOP seems to be doing the same thing. "Okay we'll change our
positions and our beliefs on A,B,C,.....X,Y,Z. Now won't all you cool kids vote
for us? Oh, and all our long time friends/voters, suck it up. Were else are you
going to go?" Well GOP, you just might find out.

I'm not naive. I know that living within the confines of the constitution,
valuing the individual more than the collective or "group", wanting a smaller,
less intrusive, more responsible government will be painful (as if what's being
done now isn't already painful) and probably isn't even possible with today's
society. Friends and family have called me a cold-blooded hard-hearted s.o.b.
because of my beliefs. But that's okay. If compromising my beliefs means I get
to sit with the cool kids, then no thanks. I'd rather sit at the far corner
table by myself.

PTSD isn't just for combat. It's basically when your brain is wired so heavily to look for some sort of danger that it interferes with normal function. It's possible that the submariner was involved in something such as an accident which caused it.

68 Chances are the $22 adjustment for "labor productivity" used output per hour, which is a horrible measure of labor productivity because it assigns all productivity change to one factor of production. In other words if capital became more productive, or "total factor productivity" increased, even if labor productivity fell, output per hour would still apportion all of that increase in output to labor.

The only way to really measure labor productivity is to fit a series of firm- or industry-level production functions to factor input flows (with labor this is easy, with capital service flows it's hard) and output flows and estimate the parameters of the production function. Long division won't cut it.

122 hi all

And no where is there any justification for why the minimum wage should
follow average worker productivity. The fact that most jobs now involve
computers and other technology doesn't mean there's suddenly extra
value to an hour of flipping hamburgers or mopping a floor.


Please don't confuse wages with value. That is what the Marxists got wrong with their stupid labor theory of value nonsense. Wages represent the price at which buyer and seller of labor are willing to agree, regardless of the 'value' that the laborer adds to whatever he/she is laboring on.

So "dirty jobs" laborers may add more value to the eocnomy than professional athletes and yet get paid less because that is what the market has determined.

Enjoy your wealth. You have indeed earned almost all of it. I congratulate you, and believe you should keep every dime to dispose of as you like. But luck and connections played a big part for most of the people who toss out terms like "homeless type," and who believe poverty is always a self-imposed sentence.

Just be human, for Christ's sake (I use the term advisedly). If you don't want to see if someone's son or daughter is dead or dying, fine. Go buy em a cup of coffee or a Big Mac, leave it by their side, and be on your way.

But you can't simultaneously complain about government programs (which suck and are unconstitutional on the federal level) and refuse to help yourself.

It's easy to visualize a case where a high market-clearing wage produces little consumer and producer surplus and a low market-clearing wage produces tons. Depends on the shape of the curves, as so many things do.

Yeah I can, actually, because real compassion is TREATING PEOPLE LIKE ADULTS, and not imposing some mushy sentimental faux 'compassion' on people that guilts them into giving money to every hopeless and worthless cause out there.

If someone's sad story motivates you of your own free will to help that person, then bully for you. But if it doesn't, then respect that person's choice too, why don't you?

http://tinyurl.com/ckmt5kr


"With an estimated 27 million people expected to get insurance coverage in coming years as the federal health law's mandate kicks in, group medical appointments may help ease a shortage of primary care physicians, proponents of the practice say.

Group medical appointments can work for all kinds of routine care — from post-surgical joint replacement follow-up to chronic conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. In 2010, about 13 percent of family physicians reported conducting group visits, more than double the 6 percent that did so in 2005, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians.

In a typical group visit, a doctor, often helped by a nurse, sits down with as many as a dozen patients for up to two hours. Each patient gets a chance to ask questions and listen to others' concerns. The doctor facilitates the discussion.

Again, I know many of you have worked hard, and deserve what you've got. I know many of you give generously to private charities.

But please remember there are plenty of poor people who work hard, too. Two, three jobs, 100-hour weeks. I'm saddened if a disdain for government redistribution gets turned into a disdain for the poor themselves.

Things like "this is America, poverty IS always self-imposed" from someone who was born healthy and able, and has had a little luck...well, that's just ignorant.

You're missing a huge difference between a poor person and what maet described as "the homeless type". We can go round and round about how much addiction (which does drive the vast majority of living-on-the-streets homelessness) is a choice, but it's quite different from run of the mill poverty that people who simply weren't raised well fall into, and it doesn't respond to intervention the same way. The homeless type has to choose help.for himself, or it really is a waste. The ordinary down-on-his-luck guy is different.

A guy goes to his doctor complaining that his penis is too small. The doc recommends a new therapy where they implant a section of baby elephant trunk. They guy has the money for the surgery so he's all "sure, let's do it!"

After the recovery period, he wants to try out the new organ, so he makes a date with a beautiful woman and they go to dinner.

They're having a pleasant evening in the restaurant when a gray blur pops up from under the table, grabs a dinner roll and disappears. The lady is.....impressed. "Can you do that again? That was amazing!"

"I'd love to, but I don't think there's room in my ass for another dinner roll"

i've lost pets before, but this is crushing me.

he helped me thru some tough times, always 'smiling,' friendly to everyone, obedient, loyal, noble.

at a loss. family is all off in or corners weeping and thinking of good times.

any suggestions from fellow morons on dealing with this?

I have found that St. Francis of Assisi was quite fond of animals, and Pope Francis I, according to Discovery, said ‘and a special blessing for you dog too.’

His name was Buddy.

346 So Mrs. Jake is a total Scandi from the MidWest.

She has been going to an exercise class for the last 3 months. Looks good, like the skinny 40something she is.

So she did her before and after pics.

For her after pic she went and got a spray tan yesterday, cuz she is midwest crazy, anyway the toilet seat had some of her spray-on tan on it I noticed.

361 And HnR Block just reminded me that Uncle Sam wants his pound of flesh (especially, I'm sure if it's CA or NY involved) from any American filing his taxes from here:

When it comes to filing taxes in Canada...
Things can get a little sticky for Americans. So, to all of our American residents, here are a few things to remember come tax season
• A Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) must be completed by U.S. persons who have signing authority for a foreign financial account, including a bank or trust account, if the aggregate of accounts is more than $10,000 at any point in the year.
• The FBAR must be filed by June 30, as there are no extensions for filing. June 30 is not accepted as a filed by date.
• Failing to file the FBAR can result in civil and criminal penalties, including fines of up to $500,000 and a prison sentence of up to 5 years.

Hey Purp, what distro?, I've moved a older dell 2core and a old dell desktop P4 (512)mem both of which are way faster then xp, or 7. I'm running Slackware14, with the bloated kde4. If you get the swap partition 3x your memory and make it the first sectors of the drive it whoomps.

438 I've moved a older dell 2core,

Which was a laptop that dell couldn't fix a shutting down problem on. I also tore it down and 2 other techs had had tried also, long story short I put Slackie on it and no more shut downs or "winblows driver issues".

Slackware's a pain but fun if you like dabbling in running parts. Madravia payfor (old Mandrake) is probably the most usable while Ubuntu (free) is the most used worldwide.

441 Couldn't the apparent solidity of fan base be a factor of the TV coverage?

Especially NCAA football. They don't use the same guidelines for what games can be covered like the NFL or do they?

I would bet that the reason so many appear to be so dedicated is because local stations show more local teams than other areas.

Me, I love football but the constant blather these days by the seeming mandatory team of
1) one senior white guy
2) one white color commentator
3) one black color commentator

just interferes with the game.

They'll be yakking away about something I couldn't care less about while stuff is going on on the field.

It's gotten as bad as baseball.

In Football they really don't. Especially with ABC/ESPN. Most "Local" games will get played on ABC but then they will also be broadcast regionally on ESPN.
This aspect really sucked for us at one point. I'm on the Indiana/Ohio border, so most network stations were out of Dayton, Ohio, and Fort Wayne, IN. Well we had Time Warner cable. And something that happened at some point was that the ABC station out of Dayton turned into an NBC station. We still got and ABC station out of Fort Wayne though. Well along comes an Ohio State game that is getting Local coverage in Ohio and Regional coverage on ESPN. Well no Ohio ABC station,, and the Indiana station isn't covering it because the OH/IN state line was the dividing line for coverage. But since we were in Ohio, ESPN was not carrying the game. One of the reasons we switched to Dish.

516 The bigger problem with the "worker productivity" argument is that it ignores both capital investment and gains to consumers.

Most gains in "worker productivity" are actually the result of their employers investing in better machines. If they had to pass all the gains on to employees, the entire investment would be wasted. No one's going to lose money for the privilege of paying employees more.

Also, most gains in productivity end up creating more supply and lowering prices. If all the gains went to employees and none to consumers, prices would be about twice as high on average, meaning living standards would be twice as low.

Markets work for a reason. These lurid demands for what wages "should" be always lead to impoverishment and repression.

My reasoning is, fine. Fine. (Full Bob Knight rage)If you people want to elect shitheads like Barack Obama and live in a fantasy world where labor is worth what the laborer says it's worth, if you're gonna stand there and tell me that some dipshit who can't even tessellate the cheese on my Subway sandwich properly should make twenty bucks an hour, then fine. Fuck it. Do it and let's see what happens(end Bob Knight rage)

Seriously. Let's let them wreck the damned thing and prove our point once and for all, as long as it can be legislatively rolled back (i.e., if they try to pass a law officially anointing Obama as King, I think that's a bridge too far, but I'm willing to let them [further] wreck the economy to prove Friedman was right).

519 The guy with no penis who bedded 100 women must've been great with his mouth. I mean, you'd have to have a legendary gift of gab to talk your way into and out of that situation. I just wonder if his secret was to get them so drunk that they thought they'd been shagged. Also, if this guy took Viagra, what would happen?
