"You are correct in that we have a person that does not understand the word rate, and it is you"

OK. LOL. That isn't quite the stupidest thing you have ever said, but it is close.

"I deal with rates every single day."

Ok. Then perhaps you might want to explain to BruceCM why you cannot compare total number of murders in city/state A to total number of murders in city/state B...…… He seems confused about it.

No duh.

For your information, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. For your information water is wet. For your information, Trump is a corrupt crook.

Anything else Captain Obvious?
