Why did your sister vote for the Brexit, Charles? I know she's right of center, but so is David Cameron.

For me the difficult question is cosmopolitan finance capitalism or ethno-nationalism, which do I like better?

No to Brexit is like a vote for Hillary. Yes to Brexit is like a vote for Trump.

Just to present the other side of the issue, I think this guy rightly points out that none of the laws proposed by mainstream Democrats would go anywhere near far enough to put a dent in American gun violence. The best argument against gun control is that we're so totally fucked that there's really no point in trying to make things any better.

@4 Yeah, the shooting in Orlando highlighted the limitations of what good guys with guns can accomplish. Within 4 minutes of the first shot being fired a dozen heavily armed police officers had stormed the club and had Mateen cornered in one of the bathrooms, but by that time 49 people had already been killed or mortally wounded.

@12 I think you're confusing economic policy with monetary policy. Monetary policy is a big part of economic but not the whole thing by a long shot. You're right that the EU doesn't have anything to do with monetary policy. 19 of the 28 EU members have opted to surrender control of their country's monetary policy to the European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt. However, this is not a requirement for EU membership, Britain, Sweden, and Denmark are all long time members of the EU, but none of those country's has surrendered control of monetary policy to the ECB.

I think your confusing the European common currency and the European Union. The former is what puts the nations of Europe under the thumb of the Bundesbank. The Brits were never part of that, they've always had their own currency (the pound) and their own central bank. The European Union is a different thing.

@70 The San Bernardino shootings were carried out by a husband and wife duo, but yeah it's mostly a guy thing.

In Europe legal ownership of military style assault weapons is largely absent, but Islamists seem to be able to obtain these kinds of weapons on the black market easily enough.

@19 If consumers finding out a product will kill them doesn't hurt sales why did the tobacco companies suppress evidence of the harmful effects of smoking for so long?
