re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - slackster
[quote]Lol no. [/quote] In response to the suggesting that Texas will cut off the US from their refined petroleum products, you can bet your arse the US will go and get it. I'm not suggesting the US will fight Texas for any other reason. ...

re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - slackster
The economic attractiveness of Texas, and any other US state, is highly dependent on the USD. The idea that you can just take the GDP of Texas and go about your way is incredibly naive. ...

re: Brexit Vote Making me think Texas - slackster
[quote]Well I worked today and didn't listen to talk radio. But it would be interesting if 75% of the US oil refining capacity suddenly stopped sending refined petroleum products to the U.S. What is your answer to that? Can't build refineries overnight.[/quote] Well if you really want to play...

re: Did older people just save Britain and the world? - slackster
[quote]Which one of those was due to British nationalism?[/quote] None, and I haven't suggested otherwise. I'm fine with the vote and the results, I'm just pointing out that this may lead to the breakup of the EU altogether, and there is no denying that nationalism has been at the heart of confli...

re: Five reasons Brexit could signal Trump winning the White House - slackster
[quote]Globalisation The forces of globalisation are causing havoc for European workers as they are for American workers.

re: Trump campaign's statement on Brexit - slackster
[quote] Remember how broke Bill and Hillary were when they left the White House? #Heswithus[/quote] Don't mistake my comments criticizing Trumps status among the global elites as a vote of confidence for Hillary. I'm no Trump fan, but I'll never vote for Hillary or any of her ilk. :cheers:...

[quote]Apples to oranges. Western Europe is now a stable, integrated place almost like the US states are. They are not going to war with each other. They are going to war for the future of their culture which has been built over the past 500 years. I don't think France, Great Britain and Germany...

re: Did older people just save Britain and the world? - slackster
People who lived from 1900-1945 would think yesterday's vote was the most idiotic thing they'd ever seen. I'm not saying they're right or wrong, but a return to nationalism was the last thing on anyone's mind after WWI and WWII. ETA: Nothing but down votes for stating a fact. Nationalism had des...

re: Is Brexit really that big of a deal? - slackster
[quote]This the new narrative?[/quote] Well it's not exactly wrong with respect to the UK. Now whether or not it is a big deal for the rest of Europe is an entirely different discussion and one we really won't know the answer to for quite some time. ...

re: Trump campaign's statement on Brexit - slackster
[quote]Marketing Genius[/quote] I'll say. The parallels between the Brexit vote and the Trump campaign essentially start and stop at bad polling and underestimated sentiment. However, he's managed to turn the leave vote in the UK into some sort of validation for his positions in the US, and many ...

re: Is Brexit really that big of a deal? - slackster
I love people who flip put one way or the other about the market movements. Everyone on this board is buying today, but you could have jumped in last week around the same prices you're getting today, and you definitely could have jumped in a month and a half ago at today's prices. It just cracks me ...

[quote]You can post a link if it would be easier, but why is each side reacting the way they are? [/quote] It's chaotic. People that want to leave are afraid of being overrun with immigrants and people who want to stay think that a return to nationalism will usher in the problems that led to t...
