Well frankly I never thought that the "united states of Europe" was a good idea in the first place, but I must admit I didn't see all this happening. It is a shame from all I have seen on T.V., in movies, books, magazines, etc. Europe is a lovely place. I have always wanted to go there, but never had the money.
Maybe you can go next year when a dollar will buy 30 trillion Euros. Although that and 10 cents will just get you a cup of espresso.
