Weiss Ratings, based in Jupiter, Fla., has rated the creditworthiness of financial institutions for several years, but the firm launched sovereign- debt ratings of 47 countries on Thursday. The U.S. rating of C (Fair) ranks it 33rd, Weiss noted in a

We could have a D rating and nobody would care as long as they got to watch the Royal Wedding tomorrow. This is how far gone it has become.

I bet those damn Croatians took out a loan in America's name, purchased an R.V., and then defaulted on the loan. Man, identity theft is a b!tch.

No, they wont come clean on it. Because then it would come to light that they did this knowingly.

Everyone with any sense knew the long term cost of bailing out the banks and Wall Street was devaluing the dollar. It was obvious.

And it is also obvious beyond belief that when you are in a financial crisis, you dont spend like idiots on multiple wars that benefit your NATION not at all. These wars are for the benefit of multinational corporations, much like the bailouts were.

Our economy is being deliberately bled dry, very likely to force us into a NAU and undermine our sovereignty. Which some of us have been saying all along, despite the fact that no one wants to hear it. We need to protect the nation, and that means we need to stop fighting wars for oil companies who dont reimburse us for it. (Although I am sure there are some tasty perks for the politicians who enable it) and we need to stop giving subsidies to those same oil companies, and we need to tax the living hell out of anything coming into our country from abroad.

We always WERE going to pay the price for allowing corporations to crash our economy. We should have just let them fail and saved the nation. But we didnt we saved them at our own expense and now we are at an enormous disadvantage against those very same entities we saved.

We got punked. And we need to reverse the trend or we will in fact, (if not in name) lose our freedom to govern ourselves.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting it too.



But Weiss--which Thursday assigned the U.S. a "C" rating that lands it squarely in the lower rung of its global sovereigns--argued that the ratings of S&P, Moody's Investors Service and Fitch are "unfair to investors who are undercompensated for the risks they are taking." Weiss's "C" rating is the equivalent of the bottom of S&P's investment-grade spectrum.

I suggest you fix a nice warm cup of coffee or put a an ice cold beer and begin reading up on 20th century history and its impact on what people today refer to as modern society. It is unfolding right before our eyes, but sadly only a small percentage are actually aware of the outcome, those that are, are what threads and books have been written about. Individuals who achieved non taxes as a business, individuals or members if i may say so, who are not obliged to reply to what one or how ever you choose to refer to them as democratically elected nations. Perhaps at this point i should post a simple youtube with a forward message that has been covered so much that it has lost its essence on a reality scale. Our past is our path to our future.

P.S. I have chosen this particular youtube as to allow those who do not have the ability of audio but are able to read. In short, simply aiding the human as best as i can. We are not all evil, dont assume the obvious as you have been told, thought, or read.

Tristar

Thankyou for posting that clip of JFK and his freedom speech.......

I am ashamed to say that I have never listened fully to that before but I do understand and fully support it's sentiment Now.

It is a great SHAME that most of your politicians, many business leaders and probably a large section of the simple population have probably not either listened to that very same speech and if they have, probably not really understood it...........

Same is also true in the UK as well I guess......

While that site is 100% correct, they will be dismissed as they are not directly connected to the Fed and not Standards & Poors.

But, they are correct.

Economic doom at it's finest.

Dollar dropping, precious metals climbing and debt at an all time high, the writing is on the wall. America's financial doomsday right around the corner now.
