Comment Re:the 1 percent is mostly people who aren't tycoo (Score 1) 289

Big difference between the 1% and the .01%.

The 1% has a lot of doctors/dentists, lawyers, accountants, engineers, educated people who are going to push their kids to get educated.

To put it a different way, the 1% value education because for the most part it's why they're the 1%. The values you pass to your kids matter far more than the money.

Except the EU has stated you want access then you have to be a part of it.

Britain will trade with the EU just as most other nations do. This is not a bad thing. Britain remains a top-10 world economy. There will of course be turbulence until all the new trade treaties settle, but that's a small price to pay for sovereignty. Certainly lower than the price paid in centuries past to achieve sovereignty of the common man.

Comment Re:Racist or not (Score 1) 117

We have to get back into the mode where we can make verifiable statements without the other side calling "racist" all the time.

"Racist" has merely taken on a new meaning.

In judo, you concede by tapping out. In a schoolyard fight, you concede by saying "uncle". In an internet fight, you concede by saying "racist".

The dollar is doing well. it would be much more honest to compare the pound to the euro in that not so subtle piece of advocacy.

The Pound is doing OK as well. 1 USD = 0.816 GBP. Pretty much matching the old pricing. This is just a price increase by Apple. It now matches the way games tend to be priced on Steam: the same number of dollars, pounds, and euros for the game.

You do realize that people 100 years from now will be characterizing you in the same way? Social values evolve. There's something perfectly normal that you believe strongly that will eventually be the epitome of evil. You're not in some way morally superior, you just have view that match the views of the person doing the judging (yourself).
