The Main Reason For Brexit Was To Stop Immigration
Brexit, the name used to describe Great Britain leaving the European Union, was approved by voters. Why? Under the EU, there are no borders. People can enter Great Britain and overload the system, take jobs and commit crimes. The people said enough!
Rules and laws set down by the EU come out of Brussels, Belgium. On a net basis, Britain paid one of the highest amounts into the EU budget last year, second only to Germany.
So what are the benefits of Britain's being in the EU? As far as I can ascertain, nothing! Moreover, it would regain it's border sovereignty, not be overrun by hordes of middle eastern refugees and not be dictated to by Brussels.
Look for Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands to consider following Britain's lead in the coming months and the eventual downfall of the European Union.

Murray goes to see the Rabbi and says, "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asks, "What's wrong?" Murray replies, "My wife is poisoning me."
The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?" Murray then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me, what should I do?"
The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know."
A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?" Murray says, "Yes!" The Rabbi says, "Take the poison."

Vern was teeing off from the men's tee. On his downswing, he realized that his wife, Joy, was teeing up on the woman's tee directly in front of him. Unable to stop his swing, he nailed it, and hit her directly in the temple, killing her instantly.
A few days later, Vern got a call from the coroner regarding her autopsy. The coroner said, "Vern, your wife seemed to have died from blunt force trauma to the head. You said you hit a golf ball and hit her in the temple, is that correct?"
Vern replied, "Yes, sir, that's correct." The coroner said, "Well, inexplicably, I found a golf ball wedged up her ass." Vern asked, "Was it a Titleist 3?" The coroner replied, "Yes, it was." Vern said, "That was my mulligan."
That's it for today, my little lamb chops. Remember, don't make exceptions for ignorant people. An asshole with a flower in it is not a vase. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
