British Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned after the public took the momentous decision to leave the European Union, voting in a referendum 52% to exit and 48% to remain. "I was absolutely clear about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the EU," he said. "But the British people made a different decision to take a different path. As such I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction." read more

The final votes weren't even finished being counted in the United Kingdom's historic referendum on leaving the European Union when there were already calls for another referendum for another country to say adieu to the EU.

Geert Wilders, the leader of the right-wing Dutch Party of Freedom, the Netherlands' own anti-EU party, immediately congratulated the U.K. on the vote to leave the 28-nation bloc -- and now he wants his country out too.

We're in something of a lull in the news cycle now, with primaries over and the convention a month away. The presumed nominees are working hard with their PR teams to decide where they want the narrative to take us next. But there's an unauthorized narrative that is quickly taking shape online: rumblings of defection from the DNC, a surge in registration for the Green Party, and a serious bid come November by Green Party nominee Jill Stein. Is it true? Why not? Haven't we already thrown the playbook out the window this year? Typically, the prospect that a left-leaning independent or third-party bid will spoil the chances of the DNC is enough to unify Democrats behind their nominee in a general election. But this year is special.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Television cameras rolled when Hillary Clinton appeared on the central balcony of the New York Stock Exchange to ring the opening bell -- just minutes after she attended a private breakfast in September 2009 with influential Wall Street and business leaders.

But the identities of her breakfast guests would be left off of her official State Department calendar -- omissions that are among scores of names and events missing from Clinton's historical record of her daily activities as secretary of state, an Associated Press review found.

Several doctors, a psychiatrist and a pharmacist were among 22 people in Southern California charged as part of a nationwide investigation into federal healthcare fraud schemes that frequently targeted military families and cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, the U.S. Justice Department announced Wednesday.

The investigation resulted in the largest such enforcement action in U.S. history, netting more than 300 people nationwide and involving more than $900 million in fraudulent billings, officials said.

In addition to major intermodal freight lines, key points in Internet backbones, etc passing through the state. - Sitz

Nah, freight ends in Texas....

Denver could pick up the internet slack

I am with Snoofy, Texas would get along for awhile...

But eventually it would become part of Mexico again.....

"The area's sizzling job market and robust economy have created a domino effect: income spikes for highly trained workers, more people packing the area's roads, red-hot demand for housing.
What's more, the technology boom has unleashed a hiring spree that has intensified the desire for homes anywhere near the job hubs of Santa Clara County, the East Bay and San Francisco. The South Bay job market has hit an all-time high after a 5,800-position surge in May, fueling an overall gain of 3,400 jobs for the Bay Area, according to a state labor report released Friday.
The region's soaring housing prices are a key factor driving dissatisfied residents toward the exit door. Several people who have departed, or soon will leave, say they potentially could have hundreds of thousands of dollars left over even after buying a house in their new locations."

Rsty, this is all a lie, the SJMercury news wants you to think all this is true, but its not ...... This isn't a "tech boom" so much as a "Fed fed boom", home prices have leveled this past 3months, but have risen in past due to Fed pumping money, and Chinese investors paying CASH. QE3 ended when? Homes are being bought CASH from Chinese investors, the house next door to me was sold for $1.2M sight unseen. Chinese investors are paying CASH all the way down to Gilroy.

On a side note: What we are finding is people leaving the state are dumping their stuff on the roads, as a cyclist I would say its an epidemic proportions today....

Why do they do this, because it would cost $500 to dump it, at the dump....

The demographic trends point to less and less high end workers and more and more low paid workers, when contrasted with housing means we should see deflation in housing.

Here is a tip: NO new computer technology or service is in the pipeline that warrants this boom, its cheap car loans, immigration, and FedReserve QE3 which ended last year, the domino effect like I have been saying, it creates jobs, which kick the poor in the nuts.

Unicorns are dying...
Rise and fall of the Unicorns..

You are showing stubborn, prideful ignorance to pretend that the situation described in the piece has anything to do with Socialism, Boaz.

Agreed, its got everything to do with immigration and Fed QE's.

We shouldn't cheer this news, its actually bad as it has no foundation for the long term health. In the 90's you couldn't estimate the affect of the Internet, but there is no technology driving this boom today.

I am not doom and gloom, but this is a mirage built upon debt. I expect it to pop before the election.....
