Friday Free-for-all! June 23rd 2017

It’s that time of the week again… Friday!

That means it’s time for another Friday free for all post, this is our regular end of the week news round up and open topic discussion thread for the weekend.

Here are a few recent links to kick off the chat:

bubble will burst

flip flopped

actual stats count

yes we banned that word

On a side note,  if all you want to do is complain about foreigners and bitch about people sharing actual stats and analysis you can find plenty of other places on the Internet to do it.  We’re going to start banning IP addresses for racist comments and trolling so count this as fair warning.  We apologize in advance if this hurts your tender racist feelings.

Have an excellent weekend!
