Funny thing is though. The Democrats have done better with the stock market than Republicans.

The reason for the AA+ rating?
No matter what Gringoman and others on the right want to believe?
Those on the right yelling to default.
The S&P felt that the politicians didn't take the situation seriously enough.

jay

S&P's statement was blunt in its assessment.

"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," the ratings firm said.


So, 2 factors that contributed to the AA+ rating. The controversy on not raising the debt. And, the debate on Not raising revenue.

Never has it been made so clear that liberals cannot endure, cannot allow, any fact that contradicts their ideology, especially the core of their ideology, which is anti-whiteness and pro-blackness.

The funny thing is that the Democrats USA never really "outgrew" the racism they were well known for in the peak of the KKK era. With a little help from the socialists and crypto-Stalinists, they figured out how to turn it around to their advantage. Reverse racism, or what I call classic Liberal Racism.

This is why the typical libnik, who is probably too ignorant to knpw the Stalinists were well aware of how to attack the "imperialists" by psychologically colonizing non-whites and fomenting racial division. This has been amazingly effective in the US, thanks to the American willingness to obey the PC police. The socialists and crypto-Commies understand perfectly how powerful this weapon is against the feckless Americanos who will not slap right back at them.

This is why even the lowliest Marxobot troll who creeps back to Monicamemo will without hesitation race-bait. The white socialist pretends to be a "friend" of blacks. (BTW, most blacks tend to see through the phony white lib "friendship," but they tend to shut up, since the white socialist "friend" will bribe them with stuff, bought with other people's money, of course. )This pretense gives him the "right" to smarmily denounce as "racist" any complaint about black criminality, which plagues the black community just as much or more as it does whites.

You see this socialist smarm without exception among all the troll trash who infest monicamemo with their loathsome racism. Some don't even understand what they're doing. (Blacks tend to realize it's all jive.) Which is they, the white socialists, sound so robotic and programmed. These wretches are perfect dronebots.

These white liberal racists are more loathsome, I contend, than their black hack counterparts. The black tends to think he has some skin in the game, despite the obvious fact that disciplined blacks have prospered in the uS like they have nowhere else in all recorded history.

Yet these loathsome white socialists continue to race bait. That's because they see it as a club to beat down opponents, and dodge rational discussion, which they fear deeply.

White liberal racists. More than just funny. More than just phony. They are evil.

Prof. Arthur Jensen wrote:

The Real Meaning of Racism

"Since the horrors of Nazi Germany, and Hitler's persecution of the Jews in the name of his bizarre doctrine of Aryan supremacy, the well-deserved offensiveness of the term "racism" has extended far beyond its legitimate meaning. To me, racism means discrimination among persons on the basis of their racial origins in granting or denying social, civil or political rights. Racism means the denial of equal opportunity in education or employment on the basis of color or national origin. Racism encourages the judging of persons not each according to his own qualities and abilities, but according to common stereotypes. This is the real meaning of racism. The scientific theory that there are genetically conditioned mental or behavioral differences between races cannot be called racist. It would be just as illogical to condemn the recognition of physical differences between races as racist."

10 lessons for tea bagggers.

http://www.perrspectives.com/blog/archives/001617.htm#three
The Tea Baggers , they would do well to remember one final truth. The words of Harry Truman, the man Sarah Palin cited as her model, are as true today as when he uttered them generations ago:

"If you want to live like a Republican, vote Democratic."

gringoman

MAYOR NUTTER (to black punk flash mobs in Philly, little covered by SLIME ==Socialist Liberal Media): You are a disgrace to your race.

WHITE SOCIALIST: Why is he always bringing up race?

jay

History suggests that raising taxes on the rich has always, always, been the smarter move. As Harry Truman put it, "If you want to live like a Republican, vote Democratic." Historically, the largest spikes in economic activity have begun under Democratic presidents. The lone exception in the past 60 years was the Reagan "growth", which as it turns out was a roll of the dice on lower taxes across the board, but in reality was created by the deregulation of banks started under President Jimmy Carter which saw, much like this recent collapse, banks get too big and too greedy for their own good, and created an economic collapse that more than swamped the growth the expansion realized. So much for Reaganomics.

. Republican States Have the Worst Health Care

George W. Bush didn't merely spend the health care money on a windfall for America's rich and famous. He helped ensure red states continued to provide the worst health care in the nation.

Call it the Iron Law of Birtherism: the movement which denies President Obama's Hawaiian birth is strongest precisely in those states where Republicans poll best and health care is worst.

A 2007 Commonwealth Fund report, "Aiming Higher: Results from a State Scorecard on Health System Performance," examined states' performance across 32 indicators of health care access, quality, outcomes and hospital use. Topping the list were Hawaii, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Bringing up the rear were the Bush bastions of Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, Arkansas, Texas, with Mississippi and Oklahoma. The 10 worst performing states were all solidly Republican in 2004. (8 voted for McCain in 2008.)

GALLUP: Obama’s Job Approval Falls to 39%.

UPDATE: More here: “Gallup finds that Obama’s overall approval rating is down to 39%, the lowest of his Presidency. My gut tells me that whatever the polls tell me his approval rating is publicly, it’s probably a bit worse. I’m sure internal polling at the White House has them in a panic. In related news, CNN has a new poll that shows that democrats are backing Obama for renomination, but that democratic support for him is fading. . . . When’s the last time you saw polling about the prospect of an incumbent President even being the nominee? The fact that they’re even conducting this poll tells me that Obama’s in more trouble than maybe even we realize.”

Tea Baggers take note: the Bush tax cuts delivered a third of their total benefits to the wealthiest 1% of Americans.

Once again 10 lessons for tea baggers:

10 Lessons for Tea Baggers


Back in April, the Daily Show's Jon Stewart offered some sound advice for frothing at the mouth Tea Baggers, "I think you might be confusing tyranny with losing." Now five months after their Tax Day outburst, thousands of vein-popping Obama opponents descended Saturday on Washington for Tea Party II. But while Glenn Beck's furious followers alternately slandered the President as a "fascist," a "communist" and worse, they remained unencumbered by either the thought process - or the truth.
Here, then, are 10 Lessons for Tea Baggers:

President Obama Cut Your Taxes
The Stimulus is Working
First Ronald Reagan Tripled the National Debt...
...Then George W. Bush Doubled It Again
Republican States Have the Worst Health Care
Medicare is a Government Program
Barack Obama is Not a Muslim
Barack Obama was Born in the United States
70,000 Does Not Equal 2,000,000
The Economy Almost Always Does Better Under Democrats
1. President Obama Cut Your Taxes

As in April, the Tea Baggers continued to display their fundamental misunderstanding of U.S. history and the American Revolution. Apparently, the right-wing zealots are outraged by no taxation with representation.

As promised, Barack Obama in the stimulus package delivered on his pledge of tax relief for 95% of American households. Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) didn't only jump start gross domestic product and refill empty state coffers in the second quarter of 2009. As Nate Silver thoroughly documented, "Obama has cut taxes for 98.6% of working households."

Nevertheless, raging Tea Baggers spouting Republican Tax Day lies took to the streets not to thank the President, but to blame him for the tax cuts they received.

2. The Stimulus is Working

A prime target of Bagger bashing, the $787 billion stimulus package passed over the near-total obstructionism of Congressional Republicans is already paying huge dividends for the economy.

To be sure, at 9.7% the unemployment rate remains dismal. But the impact of ARRA and other government actions extends well beyond the Obama administration's claim it has created or preserved one million jobs to date. As I documented in August:

After steep declines of 5.4% and 6.4% in the previous two quarters, gross domestic product fell only 1% in the last three months. And while the ARRA overall added "up to 3 full percentage points of annualized growth in the quarter," President Obama's stimulus helped precisely where it was needed most - rescuing devastated state budgets.
Earlier this month, the reliably Republican Wall Street Journal agreed the Obama administration has helped stem the bleeding from the Bush Recession:

Many forecasters say stimulus spending is adding two to three percentage points to economic growth in the second and third quarters, when measured at an annual rate. The impact in the second quarter, calculated by analyzing how the extra funds flowing into the economy boost consumption, investment and spending, helped slow the rate of decline and will lay the groundwork for positive growth in the third quarter -- something that seemed almost implausible just a few months ago. Some economists say the 1% contraction in the second quarter would have been far worse, possibly as much as 3.2%, if not for the stimulus.
For the third quarter, economists at Goldman Sachs & Co. predict the U.S. economy will grow by 3.3%. "Without that extra stimulus, we would be somewhere around zero," said Jan Hatzius, chief U.S. economist for Goldman.

Republicans call Republicans Hostage takers:
http://www.perrspectives.com/blog/archives/002251.htm

The modern day "party of Lincoln" repsonsible for AA+ rating:
http://www.perrspectives.com/blog/archives/002258.htm

"During Thursday night's GOP debate in Iowa, leading default denier Michele Bachmann claimed vindication, declaring "I was proved right in my position: We should not have raised the debt ceiling." Sadly for Bachmann, S&P the very same day contradicted her comical claim:
A Standard & Poor's director said for the first time Thursday that one reason the United States lost its triple-A credit rating was that several lawmakers expressed skepticism about the serious consequences of a credit default -- a position put forth by some Republicans. Without specifically mentioning Republicans, S&P senior director Joydeep Mukherji said the stability and effectiveness of American political institutions were undermined by the fact that "people in the political arena were even talking about a potential default," Mukherji said. "That a country even has such voices, albeit a minority, is something notable," he added. "This kind of rhetoric is not common amongst AAA sovereigns."

The tea baggers ignorance has given them the "Green" tea party rating. Hope they like it. It sure does fit!

Too late for the warning, Frau. I've already read it.

This info is not new or revealing about Perry. Debra Medina brought to light all that info mention in the aricle during her bid to become Govenor in 2010 but too few heeded her warnings.

The fact is Perry is a pawn of the NWO elite.

Strip away the made for Hollywood outer apperance and carefully scripted rhetoric, and what you'll get is a man who'll govern no differently than Obama, Dubya, Clinton, or Bush the Elder.... That I can guarantee!

As far as the S&P's downgrading of our credit rating goes, it would be silly to attribute that event to the recent wrangling over whether to raise the debt ceiling or not. The downgrading was the result of many decades of deficit spending.

Even back during Reagan's first term, there were loud warnings by many economists telling us in no uncertain terms the level of deficit spending was unsustainable. For one thing, they warned we were relying way too much on foreign investors (especially Japan at the time) buying our debt. Even back then experts were warning if we didn't get our fiscal house in order (i.e. SHRINK THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT), we would lose the country. Fast forward 30 years and we now find ourselves in the death throes of a once was a great sovereign nation. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

DETROIT

"No arrests have been made in the rash of shootings that occurred in Detroit over the weekend, according to police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens.

Within a 24-hour period, 15 people were shot, six of them fatally. Those shot range in age from 14 to 46. At least two of the dead were teenagers.

Between 6 a.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday, there were shootings at nine locations, the Detroit Police Department said. Two of the incidents had multiple victims.

In one case, five victims -- ages 16 to 19 -- were shot during a backyard welcome-home party on the 200 block of West Greendale in northeast Detroit.

The party was for someone who had been incarcerated in connection with a crime involving assault with intent to murder, police said.

In another shooting, a 14-year-old was fatally shot about 6 p.m. Saturday in the 4600 block of Coplin when a gun went off while an 18-year-old man was playing with it."

Stop coddling the super-rich: Buffett
ReutersBy Santosh Nadgir | Reuters – 15 mins ago

BANGALORE (Reuters) - Billionaire Warren Buffett urged U.S. lawmakers to raise taxes on the country's super-rich to help cut the budget deficit, saying such a move will not hurt investments.

"My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress.
Buffett, one of the world's richest men and chairman of conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway Inc , said his federal tax bill last year was $6,938,744.

"That sounds like a lot of money. But what I paid was only 17.4 percent of my taxable income - and that's actually a lower percentage than was paid by any of the other 20 people in our office. Their tax burdens ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent and averaged 36 percent," he said.

Lawmakers engaged in a partisan battle over spending and taxes for more than three months before agreeing on August 2 to raise the $14.3 trillion U.S. debt ceiling, avoiding a U.S. default.

"Americans are rapidly losing faith in the ability of Congress to deal with our country's fiscal problems. Only action that is immediate, real and very substantial will prevent that doubt from morphing into hopelessness," Buffett said.

Buffett said higher taxes for the rich will not discourage investment.

"I have worked with investors for 60 years and I have yet to see anyone - not even when capital gains rates were 39.9 percent in 1976-77 - shy away from a sensible investment because of the tax rate on the potential gain," he said

"People invest to make money, and potential taxes have never scared them off."

RafeMasters_76

— 10. Social Security Is Evil: According to Perry Social Security is “by far the best example” of a program “violently tossing aside any respect for our founding principles.” (page 48)

— 9. Private Enterprise Blossomed Under Conscription and Wartime Price Controls: Not only does he argue that the New Deal failed to end the Great Depression, but he asserts “recovery did not come until World War II, when FDR was finally persuaded to unleash private enterprise.” (page 48)

RafeMasters_76

— 8. Medicare Is Too Expensive But Must Never Be Cut: Both establishing Medicare in 1965 and expanding it to include prescription drugs in 2003 are examples of “an irresponsible culture of spending in Washington” (page 63), but establishing “‘councils of experts’ and panels of various sorts” to assess the cost effectiveness of different Medicare-eligible treatments is a “frightening” “scheme” that “undermines freedom” and can be fairly labeled “death panels” (page 81).

— 7. All Bank Regulation Is Unconstitutional: Criticizing the Security and Exchange Commission’s rulemaking process under the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, Perry asserts that “if the Constitution were shown the appropriate respect, Washington regulation writers wouldn’t have to worry about underrepresented views, because they wouldn’t have control over them in the first place” (page 94).

RafeMasters_76

— 6. Consumer Financial Protection Is Unconstitutional: Further reiterates his view that all federal financial regulation is illegitimate, listing the SEC on page 44 as part of a “federal alphabet soup” in which “undemocratic unelected Washington bureaucrats” are “now (dubiously) empowered to dictate their own preferences to the American people.”

— 5. Almost Everything Is Unconstitutional: Regrets the existence of jurisprudence construing the Commerce Clause to permit “federal laws regulating the environment, regulating guns, protecting civil rights, establishing the massive programs and Medicare and Medicaid, creating national minimum wage laws, [and] establishing national labor laws.” Perry makes a partial exception for laws barring racial discrimination which he says fulfill “the intent behind the passage of the Reconstruction Era amendments.”

RafeMasters_76

— 4. Federal Education Policy Is Unconstitutional: Cites the willingness of Republicans to vote for reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as a “perfect example” of “losing sight of the fact that perfectly laudable policy choices at the local level are not appropriate (much less constitutional) at the federal level.” (page 87)

— 3. Al Gore Is Part Of A Conspiracy To Deny The Existence Of Global Cooling: Jokes that the Social Security Trust Fund “must be somewhere in Al Gore’s lockbox, right next to his notes from inventing the Internet and that global cooling data he doesn’t want anyone to see” (page 60). Argues that moderates oppose curbing greenhouse gas emissions because “they know that we have been experiencing a cooling trend”

RafeMasters_76

— 2. Not Only Is Everything Unconstitutional, Activist Judges Are A Problem: Having called the majority of the duly enacted modern welfare state and federal regulatory apparatus unconstitutional, Perry pivots to the complaint that “the [Supreme] court too often chooses to take it upon itself to govern and to develop policy” (page 114).

— 1. The Civil War Was Caused By Slaveowners Trampling On Northern States’ Rights: Rather than simply citing chattel slavery as an exemption to his “states’ rights are good” principle, Perry argues that slaveholder activism in the 1850s was an example of big government federal overreach. “In many ways it was was the northern states whose sovereignty was violated in the run-up to the Civil War,” he argues, citing the Fugitive Slave Act and completely ignoring the human rights of the enslaved African-Americans of the south. He says “we can never know what would have happened in the absence of federal involvement,” ignoring again the fact that federalism would have bought peace at the price of continued slavery.
