"Company Could Be in for Downgrade of its Own, Experts Say WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – Just days after downgrading the credit rating of the United States, Standard & Poor's was on high alert this morning after an unmanned Predator drone was seen hovering over its headquarters in lower Manhattan. While the mission of the Predator was unclear, some insiders speculated that S & P might be in for a downgrade of its own. The Predator appeared in the skies above the company's headquarters minutes after it was rumored that S & P was about to downgrade the United States to the same status as Pluto. As a so-called "dwarf nation," the U.S. would no longer be accorded the same respect as a recognized country like France or Brazil, one S & P source said: "Basically, the United States would be considered a social network with parking." At the White House, President Obama offered no comment on the Predator's mission, saying only, "The Predator is an effective weapon against the enemies of the United States of America." He did offer apologies for what he called "an accidental Predator missile strike" over the weekend at a golf course in Virginia which narrowly missed Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)."

It's possible S&P just did what they were told to, then when the US defaults they can lay blame on them?

I be broiling under this hot Texas Sun. Been Brutal, knew we were in trouble when we had 105 degree days in June. Cannot wait until that 1st cool front comes in some time in October...
However I did make a recent trip to Calgary-cold and rainy there.I'm just tired of airport security crap and Customs. Freaking Customs agent asked me a ton of questions then told me he wasn't sure he was going to let me back in the US. Asked me to state 3-reasons why I should be allowed back in. Can you believe that Bullshit? I'm 6'1" at 190 lbs, I so wanted to stick my size 12 cowboy boot up his ass...



"S&P did what they were told to do?" Heck I do not know, I'm no money man. Doesn't seem likely in common sense to me though, just don't quote me on it.

Yes maam Shadow and other Kritters, miss y'all. Seems I have less time and money. Working on that now as we speak

hug.gif good to see you at any rate. Texas is getting hit bad, maybe worst of all the heat wave hit states and provinces. They're just goons, TSA, I'm not surprised they try to bully and intimidate travelers. What sucks is there is nothing you can do if you want to get home.

Yeah maybe doesn't make sense, I just like looking at these things from every angle I can think of.

Thanks Shadow, the feeling is mutual. Yes this Texas Heat is bad and have a very bad drought as well. Houston starting a mandatory water conservation next week while surrounding townships already have it in place. Lakes drying up and crops are withering up. Heck they found a big piece of the Shuttle Columbia that burned up in re-entry in a lake that has now dried up.

My air conditioner has broken down twice this summer, had to fix it myself as the tech that fixed it the 1st time wired it incorrectly. Used a friends Brother in Law that was supposed to be good and inexpensive. Pfffhhht it worked but was not cooling efficiently and told him the rotation of the fan on outside unit was running backwards. He told me I was full of crap then called me back to apologize saying he was hot and overworked. By that time I took it apart and read the wiring diagram and there was a note on it saying when replacing start capacitor to check rotation, if not correct to reverse wires. Did that myself and seems to work much better. At least the ac kicks off meaning house is cool enough to shut down. If that unit had a tongue, would be hanging on the ground. Come on October...

My work has not been going as well as needed also, starting to irritate me. Working longer and harder for less it seems. Working on that also. Everything just seems dog eat dog out there.

FYI: Met with a friend that came in town, he has a group that rides Harleys on road trips, met 1-guy was a big Financial Officer for BP. He was a ass, noticed my cap with a BP Logo and name of a project (Mad Dog) out in the Gulf. Started asking me questions if I had ever been out to it etc etc. Tried to be as diplomatic as possible-some things just don't work out. Lets just say he sat at another table and paid the bar tab...chuckle.gif

This.


"Company Could Be in for Downgrade of its Own"

More like it was there to make sure they made the downgrade.



Again, the whole stock market is a scam. Any little thing can make the values plummet. The real value of a company is in the profits. If they are making money, they are wort money. Then, some numpty in a suit hears a rumon and panic sells. That causes a cascade effect where many people start panic selling and all of a sudden that company is looking at bankruptcy. WTF? No, the market is a tool of TPTB. For instance, some asshole sends some of his lackeys out onto the floor to start dumping a few different stocks. The panic sets in and all of a sudden everyone is panicking. The market plunges and asshole and his buddies swoop in and buy up all the bottom rate stock. Now who owns all the stocks and, by default, the various companies?

That's what caused the great depression and that's what will cause the coming depression.

wave.gif Taco!

I hate to see the state Texas is in. Part of my family has been there since Mexico ran the joint. They were among the settlers of Wichita Falls. I hated Fort Worthless, but I have nothing against the rest of the state. I hope work improves fer ya.

No doubt the S&P downgrade made a few people enormous amounts of money. Sad shït the people at the top make money from screwing the US, then turn around and call average citizens terrorists.

We all know who the real terrorists are.

How did they handle the largest debt in history? By borrowing MORE money? This was a financial 911 and they all need to be held accountable at election time, or in a court of law.

And they called the tea party terrorists, LMAO @ "professional politician" ass clowns. Who do they think thy are fooling other than themselves? This could work out rather bad for them very soon.

Unfortunately, they are fooling a lot of people. I would bet that the majority of Americans still think the President and Congress run the country.

As for them being held accountable... I say in the street. They own the courts and elections just bring more of the same. If candidates saw their predecessors drug through the streets they would think twice about running. I'm afraid that the only answer at this point is violence. I'm against it. I would rather handle things peacefully, but I don't see it working.

Violence as an answer makes no sense, no one really wants to sink to the levels of our beloved bakers, corporate moguls and their representatives the politicians. Violence is exactly what the aforementioned greed squad that pretends to run the chaos wants.

Violence would lead to Martial law, gun confiscation (Super Congress was created to address gun control, watch it play out...) the pieces are in place and club fema is open for business.

What better way to pay down the debt than with slave labor? 13.gif

The reality is, it's going to cost plenty to enslave millions more, I have no idea how they are going to work that out, but the FED can just print more money out of thin air like always, as a result; hyperinflation will kick in to the point where It will take our fema guards a wheelbarrow full of cash to buy a loaf of bread outside the fence.

Nobody's going to come out of this unscathed, very few have an idea as to whats coming up.
