It wasn't even close

Look for buying opportunities today. Dow futures down less than one percent now however. Bonds, we shall see; might want to sell some.

USA will cut a deal with Greece; we'll bail them out by buying all of Greece's claims to the word "democracy" so the government would have the right to define the word however it wanted.

2% of the European economy. Plenty of headlines. Just another socialist failure. No money to be made here unless day trading. Discounted weeks ago.

Could the US just buy Greece, with money we borrow on credit from the Chinese?
Have our extremely efficient gubment re-structure the economy focusing on tourism from the Chinese?
Wouldn't that be best for everyone?

I think the good buys over the next week or so might be 'in Greece' with cash, USD or Euro.
How much are twenty year old Greeks going for anyway? .......;-)

I am looking forward to a trip to the Greek Isles. Hopefully they go back to the Drachma and the Dollar is worth a lot. I am in need of a cheap beach vacation.

It may be Rubles you encounter. Those are devalued a bit too now though.

Forty straight years of progressive fairy-tale economics. As Thatcher said "eventually you run out of other people's money".
Don't worry though it won't happen here. Our trillion dollar deficits are completely sustainable and conducive to a healthy economy.

I was watching a video clip from Greece, I definately saw a 'stars and bars' confederate battle flag in the crowds.
Perhaps NATO should invade, in mass force, to put down the internal insurrection.
I mean, you got to attack terrorism in your own alliance, don't you?
