Or 9/11, or San Bernardino?
And which terror states? Alaska, Louisana, Alabama, Mississippi? All these states have more then 17 people shot and killed every year per 100,000.
And Springer is certainly not hypocritical, because he clearly protects his right to own guns, as he also protects the right of terrorists to have guns, too!
According to EU rules an exit must be done within 2 years. EU leaders in Brussels have said they want Britain's exit to be finished much more quickly than that, though.
But, I wonder if it will ever actually happen. I expect another vote may be requested within the next couple of years, with a good possibility of a changed decision for a few reasons:
- The economic impact of the exit will begin to hurt many Brits very quickly.
- 28% of Britains did not vote this time. They may vote in the future if they are hurt economically.
- Those over 65 years old voted in favor of exit. Many of them will not be around at a future vote.
- Those under 25 years old voted 60%+ in favor of staying in. Their numbers are increasing over time.
- Without a changed decision, the entire UK may crumble if Scotland and Northern Ireland decide to leave the UK, to join the EU on their own.
Is that a problem, or do you think they are terrorists or criminals who will do a mass shooting? Or are you just stating your support of giving guns to terrorists, again?
I agree with your focus on sovereignty, but the other side of the coin is free trade. If the end results in a lot of trade barrier walls being constructed, then their economic pain will last for quite a while. This change will also do little to change the huge waves of immigrants that are crossing Europe and the Globe, due to a combination of global warming, and wars. Until big changes, positive changes are made in their homes, those immigrants will continue to increase in numbers and to look for new homes in Europe, Britain, and here, too.
So, the the question is how do you plan to do that. Let's take simple one to begin with. Many millions of people who work at places like Walmart and McDonalds also need to be on food stamps to feed themselves and their families, because their pay is so low now in comparison with the current cost of living.
How do you plan to raise their pay enough (or reduce the cost of food and rent enough) to get them off of food stamps?
That's just the first question. We can get on to the others once you can provide us with a rational and workable solution there.
Back to what??
- Back to when women and Blacks had no right or ability to vote?
- Back to when 20% of Americans could not read and could not write their name?
- Back to when women could only hope to work as a teacher or secretary, and Blacks couldn't even do that?
- Back to when most people died of infections diseases, like TB or Pneumonia?
- Back to when people red newspapers, or a book, if they could get one?
- Back to when there was little or no health insurance, and many thousands died of an "accident" at work every year?
- Back to when people traveled by horse or train, or on foot?
Back to what?
So ask, but the answer is pretty simple. Justice doesn't have the funding to do any more prosecutions. And the conservative Heritage Foundation is asking for further cuts in this funding. It's just lie the fact that ICE can't find and deport any more illegals because they don't have the funding or the staff to do it. Congress gets to tell government agencies what they should and can do, and that's what happens. Write your representatives and tell them that Dept. of Justice funding needs to increased by 10%, 20%, or 30% so they can increase the number of prosecutions they can do. It takes time and money to successfully run a prosecution, especially against a wealthy opponent.
I agree, Uncle. the vote is very close. So close,that I wouldn't be surprised if in 2 or 3 years, as the full impact is felt, that they decided to vote again, and then change the decision. They may get tired of buying and eating locally, as Lan suggests - oatmeal and mutton 3 times a day...
"a payoff somewhere."
Of course you think that. That's the way you seem to work. Always a payoff, never any real conviction or understanding. Never do anything because it's right, always just for the payoff, regardless of the impact on anyone.
Breaking up into smaller city-state, surrounded by a big wall that keep the locals in, and the "others" out? Sure sounds like the Dark Ages to me.
David Cameron's conservative government is probably out, as well, as he supported staying in the EU. It does not bode well with nationalism and tribalism on the ascent, perhaps a new Dark Ages.
That's perhaps not the case, Ln. A British friend is complaining that his retirement savings are down by 10% in the past hour. His buying power is also down by a similar amount was the pound drops. UK unemployment is going to spike up as companies' sales drop. Thee doesn't look like anything good is going to happen in the UK, at last over the near future. And national leadership is going to be weak as the PM, and other UK leaders lose their jobs, now, as well.

It's going to be a very rough open at 9:30. When the ability to sell products and do business is interfered with, companies profits, pay, and employment will be significantly hurt. Ad when that happens, stock prices drop through the floor.
At this hour:
Pound down 10%
FTSE futures down 10%
DOW futures down 5%
Japan halts trading.

The Brits have decided, and unfortunately it looks like they may have set things in progress to lose many of their jobs, and increase prices for things they need. It may prove to be a good example for those who expect Trump to do the same things here. (break trade agreements, increase tariffs, and build walls to separate us from our customers and suppliers.)
the haves and have nots:
So you are saying that all the money is in the hands of the top 10%, and the middle class and the lower classes have little or nothing? What should we do about that?
In addition, if Hillary wins in AZ, that means that McCain may have a hard time holding his senate seat, as well. But it's going take at least a couple more months before many people even know that there will be an election in the near future. We'll see what happens in November.
Yes, and those collection agencies take those bills at 10 cents on the dollar, because they know they can't collect most of them. You just can't squeeze water out of a rock. That's why most people have insurance, because they know they won't be able to pay a big medical bill it they were "lucky" enough to get one.
Yes, they are billed. But that doesn't mean that they can or will pay. In many states,especially those states that haven't accepted Medicaid, they just don't pay.
It's not just taxpayers who are paying for them. Who pays actually varies form state to state. Hospitals set their prices based on their costs. One of their costs is the care for the poor who have no insurance and can't pay their own way. If state taxpayers don't cover them (or Medicaid), then the price for those who are insured goes up to cover the rest. Before the ACA health care was the biggest reason for personal bankruptcy. . It still is in many of the states that haven't accepted Medicaid to insure and cover the poor.
