Standard & Poor's, the rating company that downgraded the debt of the United States to AA+ from AAA for the first time, now finds itself assailed by investors led by billionaire Warren Buffett for making a political decision that has more to do with Tea Party politics than the financial stability of the U.S. S&P officials, shrugging off a $2 ...

After reading this it is clear. This is a clear and deliberate act, a plan. I wonder how it could be the fairy tale of the New World Order was weaved into it. This is nothing less than economic genocide, and only seperated by an onion skin from the real thing. If this was a Black Republican POTUS these events would have never happened. The onion skin is a myth being hailed as prophecy and indoctrination nothing less than NAZIS.

In this case the Tree of Liberty should be refreshed not the the tyrant's blood, but those who lockstep to his bidding.

As Americans we need to examine the motivation of those like Wartime III. Place them under the scrunity examining the tinest of nuances of the vulgarity. The theme being espoused as the deliverance. Only this way will we be protected from the villiany set upon us.

The Tea party only wishes it had as much power as obama and the "Blame Game" crowd is giving them.

A small bunch of newbies are NOT responsible for taking down the nation, controlling the government, the Stock market and long time major international companies in the 8 months they have been in office.

BTW...Buffett is part of the problem....and only chimes in when there is a dollar in it for himself.

Buffett's companies were on the leading edge of large companies first laying off large numbers of employees begining in 2008.
While the same companies were making the same or more profits and Buffett was giving away Billions to Gates instead of keeping American workers on the payroll.

I pay attention to Buffet for those sound bytes that are arrogant. When he slips into the "Smartest Billionaire in the World." The markets are reacting, the truest clarion and currently the claxon.

After the 2008 elections Mitch McConnell along with Tea Party members were quoted as saying their number one priority was to make Obama a one term president. McConnell is not a Tea Party member but a leading member of the GOP party. Well we have just seen what the result is when members of a party (not just the TeaParty) take aim at bringing down a president versus doing what is right for the country. IMO the GOP which the Tea Party is affiliated with is directly responsible for the failure of this country and as citizens we are only seeing the beginning of this vindictive style of politics. John Bohner could not pull his party together to make any concessions in the bargaining to revise taxes as well as making cuts which ended in the current budget which was directly responsible for the USAs credit downgrading. As the old saying goes "A few bad apples will spoil the barrel" approprately applies in this instance and will continue to be visable if this style of polarized politics continues. The question to ask is "Are any of the politicians making these times as hard as they are for the American citizen suffering any consequenses they have imposed on the rest of the country?", my guess is no or they would be taking a far different approach........
