Brexit — yea or nay?

leave a comment »

Daniel Hannan wants voters to  fire him  from his job as an EU parliament member.   Thursday is  the day  the voters decide.   Polls differed on the final day of the campaign,  but it is widely judged as too close to  call.  Markets and bettors have selected  the stay  side,  but who knows?   Some media outlets are  calling for  the exit.   Banks are in a lather over  the vote.   Could it be as simple as whether  you believe  in the concept of Britain?

You should pay attention,  because Brits are  fed up  with their elites as many of us are.   Iain Murray is calling it  Britain’s time  for choosing,  referencing Ronald Reagan’s memorable speech.   And now  Euroscepticism is hitting  the French.     For what it’s worth,  I always thought the European Union was a terrible idea,  and I’d say history has already proven me correct.

FOX News is schedule to report on the results of the referendum vote tomorrow morning at 1:00 AM.    I’ll be watching.

UPDATE:  Is Brexit  already defeated?

UPDATE:  No, wait,  Brexit is on the rise.

Google monstrous failure…

What in hell was Google thinking to create an  app-based game  on Google Play which let users  “live like a real Jew in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp”?   The app has now been removed without explanation or comment,  much less an apology.   Was the corporation trying to be super-edgy?   Did it wish to see if anyone was paying attention?   What the hell was it thinking?
