This is the equivalent of running bombing missions against thieves and morons. I am already reloaded and refueled for my next sortie ;-)

"WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Standard & Poor's official says there is a 1 in 3 chance that the U.S. credit rating could be downgraded another notch if conditions erode over the next six to 24 months.

The credit rating agency's managing director, John Chambers, tells ABC's "This Week" that if the fiscal position of the U.S. deteriorates further, or if political gridlock tightens even more, a further downgrade is possible."


Maybe there is a God?

He looks so at home in that pic.

At least with icons on the cash register he can't make a two trillion dollar overcharge.

But he can ask: "Supersize that note?"

Super Size is no longer an option at McD's, thanks to Morgan Spurlock. :)

Well, well.. I had heard something about that, but since I have not taken the opportunity to dine at those fine establishments in years I did not know.

I guess it took some valiant liberal willing to stuff himself like a foie gras goose to save the health of America's fast food customers.

Now that's f---ing funny. A good laugh before what appears to be a tough day tomorrow. Maybe Walmart will offer him a position.

Israel's Foreign Currency Reserves Increase to Record of $66.3 Billion

So why is the US taxpayer still being forced to send Israel all those billions?

Tim didn't spend us into a downgrade.  All that spending was done by  our elected leaders.

If he vows to stay on, that most likely means he will soon leave, since you can't believe anyone in government.

But Obama's Mommy worked for Timmee's Daddy and Everything..

My Country's deserving need of Some One Truly Qualified to perform The President's perceived mandate of Reform was bypassed for this thin connection?

Until all of this Theatre of the Truly Absurd, is fixed, structurally,  the beatings will continue.

This hideous purchase of our elected officials is very alarming. Fix This Shit...


Flat Tax 

Campaign finance reform 

Protectionist Trade Agreements....Yeah the fuckin P word

Is that when you slice open the meat to see if it is done inside?

Timmaahhh! What would we do without clown acts? And did you see the old maestro Mr. Greenman telling us that the U.S. won't default because they can always print more money. Hahahahaha. Too much! NO really!

potato with an 'e'

nice touch (if indeed it was intentional)

williambanzai7's picture

That was an intended spell check overide, but the double ofs was a rush error. Kind of like forgetting the pickle.

williambanzai7's picture

I could have said it was the extra e in the rating formula, but at 5 in the morning on a toilet run detour, potato is spelled with an extra e, spellcheck or no spellcheck ;-)

Dan?  Dan Quayle?  Is that you?
