Washington wakes to downgrade

Post by preston » Mon Aug 08, 2011 8:12 am

and legalizes marijuana !

In an early morning press conference on how he plans to respond to S&P's call for $2 trillion in domestic spending cuts, President Obama said spending cuts will not be needed.
"I've instructed our new Super Congress that their first order of business will be to legalize marijuana. With the money we'll be making on that racket we should be back in the black by this time next year."

Standard and Poor's have wreaked their revenge for being told off for rating bad investments AAA. They are responsible in part for the previous financial meltdown by making investors believe that the paper they were buying was of value. Now they are finishing the job with their credit rating downgrade. I refuse to take them seriously in light of this, and hope the rest of the country can see through their ploy. Amazing how a multi-national group can have so much influence on the global economy... or perhaps not so amazing. The puppetmasters are pulling the strings and the marionettes are dancing to their tune.

That's the problem, Texan. There was no script. Everyone involved winged it and it still ended up being a big effin disaster. No matter how you look at it. Those behind this fiasco got richer while the rest of us got screwed.

They played us like a cheap violin ... those pesky Illuminati evildoers ... and we still believe they're just a bunch of bumbling bureaucrats.

Disaster politics is the name of the game ... so you better get used to being --- what you said.

Actually, I don't have to get use to it. Unlike other folks in this country, I refuse to sit back and do nothing and say "Oh well that's the government for ya." I meant what I said on my facebook page. I'm a fighter till the end.. Until my last dying breath, I'm giving em hell..

I don't know nuthin about no damn torpedos ... but I do know that there is an right way and a wrong way to chow down on a foot long hotdog.
And Michelle Lovelace ... er, Bachmann appears to be trying to one-up Sarah Palin here.
