    Graham doesn't really know what is going on with Greece, despite all the 'austerity' and people suffering rethugs love so much it has not improved the financial conditions of Greece in any way, shape or form.

      Greece, is the bad ecomony is holding people hostage.  No different than putting people in prison for debt. . . there was no way to pay it off.  

      The real people responsible for ecomonies like Greece are still employed and making tons of money.  I watched the PBS special on the global debt crisis and they stated that for Greece to get into the EU it was Goldman Sachs that aided them.  Why are the people paying for the global mess created by the very people who should have known better to start with and have gotten off with a slap on wrist while the people take it in the teeth.

        is that Goldman Sachs is the Owner of the world economy, until such time as the Praetorian Class -- on a global scale that would be the individual national governments -- revolts and asserts its natural power based on force.  And of course the Owner will use every kind of lie, myth, misconception and propaganda to retain mental and emotional dominance over the Enforcement Arm so that they remain Good Dogs.
