    Trumpcare Would Leave 22 Million Uninsured But Give The Wealthy $250,000 Tax Break

    Mr Puggsly said: Zod95 said: I completely agree with your first 2 sentences. Regarding the 3rd one, stay out of wars and suddenly everything is sustainable. Make healthcare affordable is not rocket science. Just look at what dozens of countries around the world have done. Our military budget is very high yet still a fraction of our healthcare, social security and other...

    Trumpcare Would Leave 22 Million Uninsured But Give The Wealthy $250,000 Tax Break

    in Politics Discussion on 27 June 2017

    Mr Puggsly said: Zod95 said: Some? That's more than obvious. In 22 000 000 people, some will definitely be in the "making bad choices" basket. But even those shouldn't be left for dead by any disease. They're human beings after all. So many rely on Obamacare because healthcare is crazy expensive in the USA. Moreover, do you know how many people rely on public healthcare in...

    Trumpcare Would Leave 22 Million Uninsured But Give The Wealthy $250,000 Tax Break

    in Politics Discussion on 27 June 2017

    Mr Puggsly said: I said some. It may just be a few million, it could be most of that 22 million. Unfortunately its hard to find accurate figures why so many rely on Obamacare. Ultimately, able body people shouldn't get FREE health unless they have a damn good reason. I've literally seen entitlements ruin people in my family. The mom got welfare, the daughter eventually got welfare, now...

    Mr Puggsly said:  Our unemployed are probably the fattest people in this country. So I assure you I have little concern for them starving.https://www.wired.com/2012/06/homeless-obesity/ I have no problem paying for the healthcare of those who genuinely can't work. But maybe some of the 22 million is people just making bad choices. If you think people are unemployed because...

    epicurean said: I think I saw on another story they said it would be breaks for like 350 people (but I can't find that story now). So, I mean, you could also come up with the headline from when Obamacare started: 350 forced to pay for health insurance for 22 million people I almost feel sorry for those 350 people. People are forced to work in order to survive. People are forced...

    RolStoppable said: 1. You are making a bunch of errors here. It's a bad analysis to look at first week sales of a console in relation to its lifetime sales in order to conclude how frontloaded a generation is. Additionally, you can't prove a trend with only two data points. Lastly, your conclusion makes no sense. If Wii sold ~0.5% of its lifetime sales in week 1 and Wi U sold ~3.5%, and I...

    RolStoppable said: 1. I am not seeing a trend where console sales are getting more frontloaded with each passing generation. The only verifiable trend in generational console sales is that you can't count on there being a trend as things can change dramatically from one generation to the next. First week of sales / lifetime sales: Wii: 0.53M / 101M WiiU: 0.47M / 14M NS: 1.40M /...

    RolStoppable said: I am extrapolating month 3 sales based on month 2 sales and the knowledge that Switch is still selling through its stock quickly. There's no good reason to assume that month 3 sales will be notably lower than month 2 sales. But even ignoring that. VGC has been showing weekly sales of ~200k after the launch month. Wii U had weekly sales of ~40k. That's a huge...

    Bofferbrauer2 said: Bolded the games which had Bundles. Of course this pushed their numbers pretty high. What do you think Nintendoland would have sold without it's bundle? I doubt it could have beaten 1-2 Switch, heck, I don't think it would have reached 500k lifetime without the bundle, as not even casuals picked it up. Had they bundled 1-2 Switch, it would already be close to...

And that the console is way more attractive than the WiiU was imho. And they still have a lot of margin to make a price cut if needed. I don't see a possible scenario when the console doesn't perform well. Less than 30M seems pretty...

    RolStoppable said: But what zorg said is true. The margin by which Switch is beating Wii U launch-aligned is growing at a rapid rate with each passing day. Three months after launch the Wii U was selling about 40k units per week. Switch is comfortably doing 160k units per week. ... Switch isn't following the Wii U's pattern at all. Switch only needed three months to beat the Wii U's...

    oniyide said: I see what Zod is trying to say, but I think we have to remember the Switch also doubles as their portable, so if anything they could always lean to that side and do what they've always done in that way My 20M prediction is based on the expectation that NS does not replace 3DS. If that happens, my number will most probably be very wrong....

How can sales of 1.6M in the first 10 weeks be horrible? How is even 0.5M poor when the game had low costs? We do not have the production values of either games, so calling it poor or horrible is not possible because...
