Standard & Poors Downgrades U.S. Credit Rating

Unread postby Ziner » Sat Aug 06, 2011 9:12 am

Hilarious. Those knobgobblers were at the front and center of blatantly criminal ratings on garbage subprime securitizations, Yet here they are thinking they have the "duty" to accurately rate U.S. debt. We very well may actually be only an AA+ rating and while I disagree with that it is nice to see they now decide they need to be high and mighty with their ratings. BBB tranches of subprime garbage to AAA didn't seemed to be an issue to them a few short years ago.

Not sure why this pisses me off so much, but it does. Why do I get the feeling that if there were no debate whatsoever concerning cutting the deficit they wouldn't have even considered it?

I haven't fucked up. Our political environment, political figures and general population who votes for them has/is fucked up. The easy political solution is to cut taxes and spend more.


And I wouldnt do too much taunting. The UK's debt to gdp ratio is 75% and has a negative outlook placed on them.

They came out from the beginning saying they wanted to see a 10 year 4 trillion haircut. We got at best 2.5ish in cuts to a 10 trillion dollar deficit (over 10 years). Structurally noting has changed, and it is all Bush's fault*. These guys rate just about every municipality and publicly traded company. While that doesn't give them a pass on the housing thing, it doesn't discout this downgrade.







*Everything for the next 100 years.

I blame the fucking faggots on Wall Street who got involved in the moronic derivative nonsense in the first place. And the worthless money sucking politicians who let it go unchecked so they could line their own fucking pockets at the expense of the rest of us. But no, they fuck up and the whole thing goes belly up and they come begging to us the tax payers to BAIL THEM OUT, which we didn't want to do, but Congress sold us and gave them everything they wanted in a super socialist money cum shot.

Cutting taxes on the rich was such a great idea, we should do it again since it worked so well before. I'd like to see all these oil ethanol subsidies go. I'd like to see the DoD's budget slashed like like some sex having teenager in a slasher film....

The middle class is an endangered species, and no one in the giant toilet ball called DC could give a fuck less. All this blathering about the debt ceiling, you filthy elected hacks.... You should be talking about CREATING FUCKING JOBS. A lot of the middle class is only spending money on basic needs, which is bad fucking sign. But we get nothing, instead these cunts are just crawling around look for the next ripe lobbyist's asshole to suck money from.

FUCK YOU OBAMA AND CONGRESS, YOU WORTHLESS, GUTLESS, BRAINLESS, DICKLESS SHIT EATING DOGS. I HATE YOU ALL, I HOPE YOU GET EBOLA AND CRACK OPEN AND BLEED TO DEATH. FUCKING LOSER ASSHOLE LICKING CUM STAINS. FUCK YOU!!!!

Die.....

I'd love to see what the unedited version of this rant looks like.
