You buy 'em here -- you are buying them because you think something is going to happen positively tonight in Europe.

That's the only reason you can buy 'em, because nothing good's going to be happening here.

We have a whole party that doesn't want anything to happen and we have a president that is committed to a different agenda and we have a Federal Reserve that just told us to be afraid.

Now, stranger things have happened. Maybe the 20% declines in equities over there finally inspire a concerted effort to stem these declines.

I just don't see it happening.

And the strength of the dollar says I am going to be right.
