#1 Why does nobody demand that reporters be able to do basic arithmetic??

An understanding that they're simply not capable of it?

I also suspect high rates of innumeracy among their superiors and their readers.

Can't demand something of which they cannot even conceive.

As for the "No" votes, clearly there's not enough in the platform about smashing the kulaks as a class.

#2 Why does nobody demand that reporters be able to do basic arithmetic??

How do you teach them 1+1=2 when it feels like 3 to them?

#3 Why does nobody demand that reporters be able to do basic arithmetic??

Nobody told them their smart-phones have a calculator app?

#4 "Math R Us not Us (the Dems)." Maybe, they had trouble counting the votes for Hilldabeast in 2016 which resulted in a huge pandemic of DJT derangement syndrome. But that is just one of many of their problems.

#6 As for the "No" votes, clearly there's not enough in the platform about smashing the kulaks as a class.

But if Biden/Harris won the election it wouldn't be long before Harris was smashing the kulaks good and hard.

#7 Democratic Party tradition of bribing interest groups with Other Peoples Money™ meets the immovable object of declining revenues....

When you are good at math you become a scientits/engineer. When you are good at speaking you become a lawyer or a politicain. When you are good at writing you become a writer. When you are good for nothing you become a journalist
