Oh phew, europe saved for a week.  

It's like a car crash victim and the relatives are arguing whether it's ok to leave Uncle Joe on an artificial respirator or to pull the plug. 

Either way the euro gets smoked imo

Actually, this makes sense... The more EU bailouts, the more money printing, the less the value of the EUR.

That's one way to look at it. I think Zimbabwe has the highest percentage of millionaires, but only very few of them are "rich"

Yes, if it's a fiat currency with debt attached to it, when it was created. On the other hand, the debt is fraud, so you don't have to pay it. But you need to be awake and smart enough to realize you've been boned to begin with.

Pretty much a non-event.

Whatever happens in Greece will be overwhelmed by the CANSLIM junkies who received the "follow through day" buy signal by Wm. O'Neil of Investor's Riverboaters Daily.

Back to ES ramping tomorrow?

"the jews just happen to be the most persecuted race in history."

I'm not the one, but I agree..

"Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS."

"wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born King of the Jews?” [Matthew, 2:2-3]"

I won't search more details for you, but you got the Idea.

Timespan easily.

Egyptians -> Various kingdoms pre Saul -> Assyrians -> Babylonians -> Greeks (lesser degree) -> Romans -> Early Christians/Early Catholics post Constantine -> Muslims -> Russia/Slavic areas and Palestinians (look up the 1st Aliyah) -> Nazis -> KKK/White Trash Americans -> modern Antisemites.

 

Not too many peoples that can list off that many antagonists throughout time.

Easy to explain.. Really there is about few millions of Jews on entire planet but think about. 26% of all Nobel Price winners are Jews.. Basically it maybe 40-50 million in total but 26% of Nobel laureates? I know, I'm in shock myself.. That's why Jesus was "born" in Israel, you got the Idea?

you mean "until our living expenses are twice their income."  maybe the problem is we really don't pay them enough?

Hey we're all one big happy Ponzi family these days. Yeah we pay them. So that they won't defect from the Ponzi and cause our banks to implode. And everyone will be fine until they wake up one day unable to afford the cost of living

Waiting for the bond market reaction. Pretty sure the EUR will go up in the next couple of days and the game is back to the US with debt ceiling and OT2. Of course, nothing has been solved and the two ballons are getting bigger and bigger until one bursts.

It was a bull trap, Asia was selling yesterday, but US traders...I dunno,  a panic buyup, so it's a another bulltrap.

Everyone knows Greece has partially defaulted, if not a full default in the coming months.  Also, they (Greeks) have got to send the country in a extreme recession to pay the interest to the banks holding Greek debt... and you really think a million+ Greeks are gonna buy into that, nope protest and riots.  I would also be watching the rest of EZ, even Germany for backlash. 

Germans hate high oil prices and a higher EUR.  It's on.
