    Hey Stacie,

    S&P affirms US AAA Rating, but has changed it's outlook to negative.

    Silver lining…

    This is a major poke with a big stick at Congress as to deficit/debt reduction.

    This is the first step towards the End of Days.  Actually it is't the first step, but it doesn't help. The U.S. is Babylon the Great. Get out while you still can.

    Day Two.

    No DOW crash and burn today. That is really too bad. It would have put more pressure on Congress to clean up their act.

    "As Galbraith explains it, “US debt consists of bonds issued in US dollars, which I assume the S&P analysts know. How can the US possibly default on its own currency? The obligation is in nominal dollars, which is to say when the bond retires, the US issues a check in dollars to cover it.”...
    "So what’s going on here?
    There would seem to be only two possibilities: Either S&P has been pressured by powerful Republicans and/or Wall Street Bankers to issue this warning, in order to add to national hysteria about the national debt and win more drastic cuts in social programs, or S&P is simply blowing it again."
