Gosh Clinton was less than Reagan? That can't be, Reagan was economic conservative genius...

Average of 4 to 8 years compared to the average of one year?

What a shit thread.

Which one is better apples or oranges?

I though presidents were considered fully employed when they were in office.

Don't know much about US' domestic policies, but I do know that statistics are pretty much useless without the proper context.

sigh.........................

Sometimes, one of my long drawn out replies that I am sure no one wants to read is in order.

Times like these, this simple quote from financeguy, all the way back on May 15, 2008, will do!

61% of historians agree: W. Bush is worst ever

A long history indeed.

Correlation and Causality. One common mistake made by people interpreting a correlational coefficient refers to causality. When we see that depression and low self-esteem are negatively correlated, we often surmise that depression must therefore cause the decrease in self-esteem. When contemplating this, consider the following correlations that have been found in research:

*

Positive correlation between ice cream consumption and drownings
*

Positive correlation between ice cream consumption and murder
*

Positive correlation between ice cream consumption and boating accidents
*

Positive correlation between ice cream consumption and shark attacks

If we were to assume that every correlation represents a causal relationship then ice cream would most certainly be banned due to the devastating effects it has on society. Does ice-cream consumption cause people to drown? Does ice cream lead to murder? The truth is that often two variables are related only because of a third variable that is not accounted for within the statistic. In this case, the weather is this third variable because as the weather gets warmer, people tend to consume more ice cream. Warmer weather also results in an increase in swimming and boating and therefore increased drownings, boating accidents, and shark attacks.
false, false, false. it's a well known fact that ice cream causes murder.

My preferred method is to suffocate victims with icecream cones and then blame it on the weather... while reeling off a list of unemployment statistics dating back to 1865.

I dunno, providing context sounds like something a rebel would do.
