Vote LEAVE wins! Labor Wins The Mandate! What Does THAT Mean?

Leave has won the UK Referendum!

What does that even mean?

We'll be talking about this amazing result, what it means for the UK, and what it could mean for the USA, and her relationship with the UK countries--and with the EU.  It's a really BIG deal, and you should be getting as much information, from as many sources as you possibly can. Yes, that's just how important this referendum vote actually was.

This is not merely a "big" deal. Forget that. This is a massive, earthquake-like hubungous, ginormous deal for every citizen of the world.; beginning with the British citizen, through the citizens of the UK and the UK  Commonwealth states, to the ends of every single trade policy, defense agreement and/or manufacturing grid conversation. These and other entities are going to define, for the first time in our history, a brand new nation that enters the stage with the world's fifth largest economy.

Factories, groceries, petrol stations...anywhere you might choose to part with a fiver...they are all involved--if in fact the mechanism required to start the process does actually get activated. Meanwhile, the British Pound is taking a beating on the stock exchange (a temporary situation, I submit), the British Prime Minister has announced his intention to resign, a lack of confidence vote is issued against the Labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn (not much of a story, and absolutely no surprise as the Parliamentary Labour Party have had Mr. Corbyn in their assault rifle-like sites since his ascension to the Labor Leadership), and Nicola Sturgeon gets what she wanted when she began her "affiliation" with the Stay In campaign--sufficient 'material difference' to initiate a second referendum on being an independent nation (Ireland also looking as we speak).

This short and incomplete list indicates something that a lot of people never understood about this referendum: enemies have targets. Margaret Hodge and her co-conspirator Ann Coffee, leaders of the Parliamentary Labour Party showing that the PLP have no intention in the future, as they have shown in the past, to accept Corbyn's leadership of the Labour Party. Turncoats.

The Prime Minister who, on one day says he will accept the decision of the citizens of the UK and guide her through the process, should the UK decide to leave, has resigned. Both for the Conservative and Labour leadership, vacuums erupt, while Scotland's First Minister waits minutes to announce her intent to call for a second independence referendum.

It does surely seem as if personal agendas are rife this morning. Yet, I have yet (12+ hours after the final results announced) to hear one person speaking either to, or for the citizens of the UK.

The complete public revelation to those citizens of the absolute corruption of their government leadership is not only arrogant, but the most active activity in the country. Disgusting.

Two Introductory Points To The Series

This past week, we began another "new" journey together. I discussed the four main interests I am currently pursuing. We addressed each of these interests from the viewpoints of two different, but very important "arguments":

1. The Fairness Argument

2. The Corruption Argument

We then applied each of these two "arguments" to each of the four interest areas. If you aren't certain which are the four "interests" we are discussing, I would urge you to go to the site, and listen to this past week's radio show. If asked, I would say it is probably one of the most important options for spending two hours of your life learning important things about yourself. Your mileage may vary. (YMMV)

During this week only, I will be conducting, from among the:


donors and

friends of PPTS

a marketing study to examine, explore and expand these two arguments from the realm of politics to a more general application we call life. I constructed the first experiment, then deployed it.

1. From three lists as mentioned above, I randomly selected 250 email addresses to send an "offer". If the recipient should open the email, and understand the instructions, each addressee could increase the "value" of the email by 10.7 (a random number of no special or significant behaviour or attitude) orders of magnitude. (Simple mathematics abilities will reveal an astounding potential value for the total "offer".

2. On this coming Sunday's show, I will reveal:

the total number of invitations sent: 250

the total number of invitations "opened":

the total number of invitations "accepted";

the total number of "spins" actually used per invitee;

the split:

     the number of those obviating a strategy based on Argument #1 (Fairness)

     the number of those obviating a strategy based on Argument #2 (Corruption)

     the number of invitees obviating a combination of both arguments (Compromise)

     the number of invitees obviating no strategy (Pure randomness)

    the importance of each choice as it applies to the probability of using these arguments
as an operating rationale in life.

If you are one of those reading this entry who received an invitation, this is the limit of the information I can reveal at this time; I do not wish to coerce any particular action as a result of receiving an invitation from me. Randomness of the experiment #1 is important to maintain.

To my Psi  6 Brothers and Sisters:

Yes, this is a variation of the "red/black" game. (Please do not blow the experiment.)

If you know the purpose of the "red/black" game, please call me on the show this coming Sunday, and you can become an "independent verifier" of facts for the game scores. (It will help me out tremendously, as I'm sure you will understand with a beginning factor of 250 game players.)

The results of the experiment, like the Brexit vote taken in the UK today, is entirely up to those who received an invite to the game. You voted with your action, or reaction as it were. You did so without fully understanding the rules of the game, the potential outcomes, or the resulting actions to be taken by you, or upon you by others in the game. This is what a PURE experiment seeks to accomplish.

For the UK, it could mean the end of Great Britain as a nation, the end of the UK as a group of nation states, and new definitions for all countries concerned in the election. For us, it means only a bit of examination of truths, and why those truths matter to us as US citizens both now, and in the future of this land.

I hope you will be with us this Sunday, from 2-4PM (Central Time). We'll be on the air! I hope we'll see YOU there!

For the entire team, I remain,
