The Brexit Hangover

2016-06-25 08:52 PM

568, what's elitist about state secession movements? They're not new! The Reuters article mentions several.

"Emboldened by Brexit, U.S. secessionists in Texas are keen to adopt the campaign tactics used to sway the British vote for leaving the European Union and are demanding "Texit" comes next.

The citizen-driven vote in Britain can be a model for Texas, which was an independent country from 1836 to 1845, and its $1.6 trillion a year economy would be among the 10 largest in the world, said Daniel Miller, president of the Texas Nationalist Movement.
"The Texas Nationalist Movement is formally calling on the Texas governor to support a similar vote for Texans," the group said on Friday. The office of Texas Governor Greg Abbott was not immediately available for comment.
The group, which claims about a quarter million supporters, failed earlier this year to place a vote on secession on the November ballot but aims to relaunch its campaign for the next election cycle in 2018, buoyed by the British vote, Miller said.

Rex, it's already been floated! I'm sure you knew that. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-usa-secession-idUSKCN0ZA3F4

Knee jerkers, at least read about the issues involved with Brexit. Any major news source. I do like to read the BBC, among others. This will take years to settle. The costs are unknown. Don't other drudge workers like me, here and in the UK, have 401k's?

the most "fun" is regrexit: https://twitter.com/hashtag/regrexit?

you're?! (rolling my eyes & shaking my head)

your = possessive
you're = you are. A contraction. You can remember this by remembering that the apostrophe takes the place of the letter that is removed. Hope this is a helpful hint.

69P-the UC System is amazing. How many classes does this guy teach? One? Publish or perish? True, but once your tenured? Publish or perish no longer applies.

Bexit? Let's be practical-why should Britain pay for certain nations' overspending? Why should they be ruled by a bunch of overpaid unelected eurocrats that reside in Brussels. It's a democratic revolution actually. There will be economic pain. But that's what happens. And in reality, there would have been less economic pain if the Eurocrats hadn't tried to overthrow democracy in the first place.

The economic turmoil is one thing - the potential political turmoil that would follow should other EU members rush for the exit is another. Europe has spawned two World Wars in the last 100 years and let's not forget what Yugoslavia (as it used to be called) went through when various groups started flexing their nationalistic muscles. Besides, one of Brexit's leaders - Farage - has already backtracked on one promise to fund the UK's ailing National Health Service with money saved by not paying the EU membership. He claimed his statement was "one of the mistakes" the Leave campaign made. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about other mistakes before long.

Between 2007 and 2014, Prof. Cohen went from a base salary of approximately $155,000 to $191,275. How many of you got over a 20% pay increase in that time...or any pay increase? How many have taken pay cuts. Pity the poor adjuncts who live on next to nothing so people like this can prosper.
No wonder the analysis is rather thin. This guy is part of the crowd benefiting from neoliberal policies. This article by Glenn Greenwald provides an in-depth analysis of the Brexit vote.

If we ask Texas very nicely, do you think it would secede from the US? If that works, then we might also encourage Arizona and Florida to think about it.

Hey, it can't hurt to ask.

Hogwash: Leaving the EU is the best thing to do at this point. A central elitist power of un-elected politicians making rules affecting 28 countries with very different cultures has lost its effectiveness. It is a very costly relationship and the UK will be stronger as a result of leaving. This is one of many revolutions, world wide, that need to happen to purge the ruling elite. America is next! Put Hilary in jail, build a wall, make meaningful tax reform for individuals and corporations, create effective welfare reform and get everyone back to work.

Yes, the UK lasted centuries before the EU. And most of those centuries were filled with wars. I think the Brexit fears are overblown but they sure aren't nonexistent.

This sounds like a bunch of liberal political rhetoric. The UK lasted centuries before the EU and will last centuries after. Real Politik.

"Most of the people in this town seem not to work"? Where in heavens name did that come from? Great to see dogs going to work rather than staying home alone. Nice photos. If some pictures look like the dog isn't at "work", maybe the owner works from home or didn't have a picture of their pet at work so sent in a "home" one.
