SOOOO convenient! This "deal" happened to conveniently be announced exactly prior to the asian markets opening on the first of August (a Monday for them as well)...Keep in mind people that this is a merely speculative agreement between two leaders of the supposed parties that are supposedly in charge. Both the house and the senate are now to vote on this supposed (politically based) "agreement."

Just like the "Team of six," hmmmm...

WAIT FOR IT! Before you jump into propogandically induced conclusions.

Thanks...

I call severe BS! And yes... I trust my gut

this is just outright thief on insider trading. They knew that the debt ceiling was going to be raised we all did. They are dealing their own cards they probably bet against the market during the talks then changed today. We need to start linking politicians with the companies they own or are heavily invested in. I have a feeling a lot of false or fake overseas companies made a killing. I have this strange feeling soon this stuff will get leaked

I can link almost all of them to the Rothschild Family Investments and the Rothschild Bank is connected to the central banks of the U.S., Russia, China, England, European Central Bank, India, Etc.

It's all to manipulate Power. IMO

Whoever thinks this deal is sealed is a dumb ass.It hasn't passed, party on like it's 1929 fools.Bit premature isn't it? Even if it does, a credit rating down grade would undo the whole thing.That should wipe the smiles of a few faces

I have a strong feeling the bill won't pass the vote...

Nothing is over 'till is over (didn't heard also the fat lady sing...)

If US will default (and i beleive it will)...and start having real issues at home...and triggering nasty effects in Europe...could you see in forseable future a better timing for someone (insert China) to start making big moves around (Spratlyss archipelago or Taiwan) ?

I see something like this :

US defaults > EU PIIGS defaults > markets go beserk on fire sales > NATO (US and EU) having major revolts >
US and EU economies drop sharply...all of those will have the NATO countries handfull with domestic issues.

Why wouldn't be China profit of this and get Taiwan and all oil and gas reserves they consider theirs?
Add flare ups in Pak-India, Israel-whoever...and US + NATO can't do # about (well, except a world war) because they waaaaaaaay to screwed up after a US default?

The fact that Obama spited some words..means nothing.

I think the bill will NOT pass the vote (most likely in the House), and S will HTF.

I am so freakin' sick of our "representatives" in Washington D.C. ignoring the people they're suppose to be representing. It's as if they think they represent their own interests. We need to remove these men/women from office - forcefully if we must. We cannot tolerate these actions! With every stroke of the pen, liberty dies. Why do we stand idle while these scum bags wreak havoc on the future of this nation and planet.

That picture portrays Obama perfectly. Lots of great posturing, stern look on his face, awesome Captain Hype costume, and obviously no... huevos.

I would imagine Obama tucked his "huevos" ......... afterall the tea party has been nipping away on a daily basis. Mc Connell offered his after the elections, they've had Boehnors in a deathgrip for weeks, Eric Cantor hasn't got any, so if I was the Prez I'd tuck mine too.
