Adam, look what you did, for Gawd's sake!

Reports saying the U.K. set to go into a recession as a result of their reckless vote:

"The whole world is reeling after a milestone referendum in Britain to leave the European Union. And although leaders of the campaign to exit Europe are crowing over their victory, it seems many Britons may not even know what they had actually voted for.

Awakening to a stock market plunge and a precipitous decline in the value of the pound that Britain hasn't seen in more than 30 years, voters now face a series of economic shocks that analysts say will only worsen before they improve. The consequences of the leave vote will be felt worldwide, even here in the United States, and some British voters say they now regret casting a ballot in favor of Brexit."

The British are frantically Googling what the E.U. is, hours after voting to leave it Google search history suggests many Britons had little idea what they were voting for. 


Some of the blame for this has to go to the outgoing PM, David Cameron. Agreeing to a binding referendum on something with so dire consequences if the vote is "leave"? 

Man Who Voted For Brexit Is 'A Bit Shocked' His Vote Counted, Is Now 'Worried'

 A transcript: 

 I’m a bit shocked to be honest. I’m shocked that we actually have voted to Leave, I didn’t think that was going to happen. 

 My vote, I didn’t think was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to Remain, and the David Cameron resignation has blown me away to be honest. 

 I think the period of uncertainty that we’re going to have for the next couple of months, that’s just been magnified now. So yeah, quite worried. 

Adam, look what you did: For God’s sake.

To all who are crowing over this vote:

How's your 401K looking today?

The vote to screw the elites is now screwing you. The "elites" aren't harmed by reckless voting. You are.  No one know how this will affect financial markets all over the world.

But like spoiled children who don't care about consequences for their behavior, the people who supported the Leave are having a great time watching their stocks and 401Ks tank.  Enjoy the long, painful slide into financial uncertainty and possible ruin.

The "ELITES" will do just fine. Your vote did not harm them one bit.

These are the questions that the Brits should have asked BEFORE they cast their emotional votes:

Speaking in Scotland at his golf course, Trump was surrounded by Nazi golf balls.

Figures. The Brits who supported the Leave are like the Americans who support Trump. They make decisions by emotion, not intelligence. Now the consequences of what they did are beginning to sink in. Maybe this debacle in Britain will show the American people what would happen if The Idiot Trump was elected president.

Sadly, the cool, measured response of people like Barack Obama do not seem to give folks as much comfort as the cowboy leadership style of "The Decider."

I'll take the cool, calculating, informed leader any day over the reckless nothing folks...

"When the pound goes down, more people can come to my golf club."

It does seem quite possible that Hillary can run a campaign that does nothing
more tha point out what a witless circus clown he is.

The moral of the story is DO YOUR RESEARCH before voting! It's disturbing how many people will form an opinion without learning about the matter at hand first.
