If no one is AAA anymore, does that mean AA is the new AAA?

I guess its because asking for BBBBBbatteries could get a bit confusing and silly.

There is a cognitive dissonance with Tyler that I cannot resolve.


On the one hand he has declared the ratings agencies to be a total farce, on the other hand he jubilantly and rejoicingly announces every and any of their downgrades.


There is something fishy here, something seems just not right.

My view is that we want them to do their job. If they do what we know to be true then they should be acknowledged for doing the right thing. When they maintain the bullshit either for fees or to keep from making waves then they should be called out.
