Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
I love the variety of posts herein to date. As a very young American I recall a family visit to Great Britain in 1969. It was one of the last years of Pounds Shillings and Farthings and Sixpences. Luckily I was good at math. I passed through London two years later and noticed that a New Penny was worth 2.4 pence but many prices were the same, an automatic 140% price boost.
The other thing I recall, though without any deep understanding, was there was a lot of talk about a U.S.E. United States of Europe. The average adult of the 60s had ready memories of WWII and solid perceptions of the Soviet Threat.

It's not my vote, but I've often thought over the unfairness and organized imbecility and prejudices latent in Congress, The United Nations, Brussels, and the old saying comes back to me:

"Yes the game is rigged. But it's the only game in town."

So I like Richard Bridge's post of 09 Jun 16 - 06:27 PM with Tobias Kliem's arguments.
