Well, the international political bullshit has come home to roost, thanks to the United Kingdom (
Great Britain) having voted to secede form the EU. The impact to us was substantial, but not devastating. Our investments are weighted away from high risk and we still appear to be in pretty good shape, considering. As we continue to invest, we will be getting bargains at the now discounted rates.
Some pundits in the UK think that the Obamination may have tweaked the British electorate the wrong way by having gone to London last month (at taxpayer expense, of course) and insisted that they vote to stay in the EU - or else. I guess they don’t like some moron from the new world telling them what to do, so a backlash happened.
Our government isn’t the solution to anything - it’s the problem! And I mean a problem in the bipartisan sense.
