And Europe is saved again.  Italian 10 year bounces back with a vengance and DOW futures surge into positive territory.  Buy the rumor.

Wait for the blood in the streets, and then BTFD in gold and silver.

I believe the standard advice here is: Buy NFLX.

You missed that opportunity.  Shhhhh...but I traded NFLX last week from the long side...despite the fact that it is barely even a shell of a company now.  Buying Netflix today would be ill advised.

Shame the Greek army isn't publicly listed. Their shares might have gone parabolic before the days end....

The Greek Army: Do they still wear breastplates, greaves and carry a sarissa ?

You forgot the /sarc, so you get trashed.  Some folks are just too dense to get it.  Or maybe they are still asleep (just being kind here).

I too have noticed a severe lack of sarcasm meters among the ZH audience.  Some peeps are too uptight.

True, but some peeps are trying to have a real/serious discussion and it can be hard to change tracks in your mind...  Especially with all the trolls that abound, it can be tricky to tell the difference, as well (especially when someone replies sarcastically to a serious post).

Does anyone else get the feeling that the Greeks are playing the suckers at the NYSE/LSE for fools and dropping rumors every time they want to make an insider trade?  They won't need a bailout at this rate.

The S&P has priced in about 1000 points worth of 'EUROPE IS SAVED' over the last 12 months.  It's working pretty well.

Rumor is the Minister of Silly Walks if pro-referendum, so this could get ugly.

Does the Greek Health Minister now outrank the Prime Minister?  

Interesting setup they have there.

Probably not, however he probably knows a doctor that will declare the PM unfit for work.

I think it must be like what happened in the US in 2008, where we learned that spending bills originate in the Treasury.

No but he gets to decide how the Finance Minister gets treated.

So ...

Health minister? I guess they've got hemlocked into a position where he has to support the bankers.

He was also prescient for being one of the few German leaders who could resist getting in bed with Greece.  Mussolini pulled him into that bed and it didn't work out too well for anyone.  When will they learn?

Too bad they don't have any oil we could invade them under the pretense of liberating the people. Maybe when we have a shortage of olives...

You'll need a Dick Cheney type into secretly sodomizing Greek boys on false charges in hidden prisons---otherwise, where is the fun for Republicans????

I'm googling "pedo cam" and "Lithuania real estate" as we speak, give me a holler at 15:00hours Dog.
