Explaining #BREXIT

Why is this such a shock and what does it mean?.




The financial world is in shock  because they like the status quo.

The BREXIT was approved because the world aka the 99% including Britain wants change, any kind of change.  Which of course explains Donald Trump’s success in the US.

The polls probably did not reflect the last minute decision makers and instead reflected the people who were able to be polled aka the retired people on the street who had time to answer silly polling questions.  These are generally conservative people who do not like change.


Well the financial world is in turmoil because they also do not understand what this means.  So you can expect the stock markets around the world to be very negative for quite a while.  There may be enough negativity that we may experience a recession, which a number of respected economists have predicted for months.


Change is coming.  The demographics show the population is becoming more diverse aka less Caucasian.  Also the young voters are saying “We are tired of inequality and of politicians paid by the rich to do their work.  Your generation had your chance.  Now it is our turn and we are going to do something different.”

Climate Change Contest – Pick Door #1 or Door #2

Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a note on Facebook on Monday.


He made a very good point about climate change and renewable energy: It really doesn’t matter what you believe.  Here is what he said.

There are two doors. Behind Door Number One is a completely sealed room, with a regular, gasoline-fueled car. Behind Door Number Two is an identical, completely sealed room, with an electric car. Both engines are running full blast.

I want you to pick a door to open, and enter the room and shut the door behind you. You have to stay in the room you choose for one hour. You cannot turn off the engine. You do not get a gas mask.

I’m guessing you chose the Door Number Two, with the electric car, right? Door number one is a fatal choice – who would ever want to breathe those fumes?

It’s a strong point, but even more importantly, it’s a bipartisan point.

Here is the real deal.  You pick a door and we agree to never argue about climate change again. Agreed?

Why Education Needs To Change

This is just one reason why education must change.

We need to seriously look at how to improve education in the United States in order to offer a World Class education.  Here are some futuristic ideas.

1.  Decide to concentrate on quality not quantity.  Instead of smaller class sizes which means more teachers, let’s concentrate on better teachers.

2.  Collect and catalog all the best videos of teachers.  We need to focus on the best of the best videos and teachers that motivate.

3.  Allow vouchers to be used.  Parents will pick the best schools which will encourage all schools to get better via supply and demand.

4.  Meet in classes for group or team projects as well as testing.  Students will want to socialize and test scores can be verified.

5.  Encourage service for student grants.  Do military or community service in exchange for student grants or loans.

Let’s make some positive change.  Here is more information.
