man i was just thinkin of the past 8 years

the setup government control of the subprime market control by senators frank and dodd aka the mortage busines

artificially manipulate the market flood the market then here comes the government to save the day

stage one is complete trillions of dollars lost

since oh 2008 the rise of gold artifically manipulated to record prices enter the downgrade whats gonna happen?

gold soars to 2000 or more with the bottom ready to burst any given time who comes in to save the day?

the same people who created stage 1.

were doomed!!

the government could come in just like they did under fdr and confiscate that gold housing they couldnt do and the greatest crime ever perpretated on the american public goes unnotices because were all democrats did this republicans did that..

and the government and the federal reserve make out like bandits.

If they had any morals, they would promise to fix the problem in the interest of the country and resign upon completion.

Congress knew this would probably happen yet they still couldn't come up with something sooner. It's like school children turning in a report late.

Oh gimmie a break.

First of all. It was AAA and was downgraded to AA+ by ONE Credit agency and you wanna know why ?

THEY SAID IT WAS BECAUSE OIF THE REPUBLICANS.

"We lowered our long-term rating on the U.S. because we believe that the prolonged controversy over raising the statutory debt ceiling and the related fiscal policy debate indicate that further near-term progress containing the growth in public spending, especially on entitlements, or on reaching an agreement on raising revenues is less likely than we previously assumed and will remain a contentious and fitful process. We also believe that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration agreed to this week falls short of the amount that we believe is necessary to stabilize the general government debt burden by the middle of the decade."

Yeah.

Yeah.

First of all, are you dense?
When have you ever seen one of the big three do anything by themselves? If one did it then you can rest assured the others will follow very soon.
Second, what did you read in your link that said it was republicans fault?

It is their fault in a way, they should have held out until they got the cuts the tea-party members wanted, we can see now that we would have been no worse off.
Grow up.

At least you can spell and use something resembling proper sentence structure. I'd shy away from careers that require analytical skills, though - certainly not your strong-suite.

Congress just passed a -democrat-led- bill into law that raised the debt ceiling - something the conservatives have been against.


We also believe that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration agreed to this week falls short of the amount that we believe is necessary to stabilize the general government debt burden by the middle of the decade.


Because it really didn't cut spending, and no successive Congress is required to adhere to the budgets established by a prior Congress (so, this whole "cuts it by x over y years" is nonsense as it has no bearing on future budgets).


the related fiscal policy debate indicate that further near-term progress containing the growth in public spending, especially on entitlements, or on reaching an agreement on raising revenues is less likely than we previously assumed and will remain a contentious and fitful process


Near-term = "now"

Progress containing growth = "cut/limit/restrict"

public spending = "government spending"

Entitlements = "welfare and quality of life programs"

or reaching an agreement on raising revenues = "raising taxes" (how you are going to do that to cover a budget that is a 'healthy' 30% greater than the total federal revenue is beyond me)

They are pretty much saying that the two parties cannot come to an agreement over addressing the budget problem. So, rather than do that - they simply increased the debt ceiling.

That is printing money for the sake of printing money. History tells us this is -bad- - really bad. Countries that fall into this habit don't remain peaceful for very long. Costs start inflating by the day as the economy becomes hyper-reactive and the previous day's wages useless.

If this news does not bring congress off of their five week vacation, they should all be impeached. They have already screwed the FAA workers by going on vacation without settling that issue.
Enough is enough.

Got room on the good-byee train for our lot? Our last two crisis Cameron was Away, safely out of it visiting his friends in Africa and this time he's Away, safely out of it on holiday - where he's too tight to tip a working waitress.
Eton clearly didn't equip him for mingling with the ordinary people he's supposed to represent.

Perhaps one should note that the dumbing down of our education system is blatantly reflected in the sad state of intellect displayed by our politicians.

In the end it doesnt matter. We are a nation of sheep now, and not the Lord's sheep. We have ALL become so consumed with trying to get a slice of the pie, each and every one of us, and were all damned for it.

The lawmakers, congressman/women, the judiciaries, the executives, down to that last man woman and yes even children are all holding out their hands for the want of wealth. We have all given up our natural freedoms to pay homage and obeisance to the almighty dollar, instead of Almighty God. We are ALL damned. The rulers of our nation will deliver us death and we will love them for it.

No one has the courage to stand up for whats right anymore. We engage in peaceable protests that get us nowhere. Corrupt men in power will never take you seriously until they are staring down the barrels of your guns and no one has the courage to take that step because its going to take far more than just 1 man, its going to take everyone, and yet NO ONE has the courage to get first blooded.


The ancient Romans practiced totalitarianism, and their nation tore itself apart while mad Nero sat in his palace and watched Rome burn in fascination. The U.S. is the second Rome, and we will watch it burn around us while our rulers sip iced tea, play billiards and watch their stocks soar to unprescedented heights. The end is already here and no one even sees it.
