"The ratings agency said the Fed's plan of buying $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities a month..."

Not to worry.

I heard that the Fed has those mortgage-backed securities insured against default by A.I.G.

Not one of the Big Three, but still a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization. So I guess this is a big deal.

Except for, uh... *cough*

sitesmithscott: I wonder if it works like personal ratings. People with low ratings end up only qualifying for high interest loans due to the risk. Does that mean that future borrowed money by the government will have a higher interest rate that us taxpayers have to pay for? Curious.

Of course it does. You should start having more sex and you wouldn't have to ask questions like this.

As long as we keep arguing about blame and fault like a pack of gossip fence fishwives and don't address the underlying causes, America is safe.

We've all been bent and greased and dropped off on the rainy corner and all this malarkey is about picking the suit with the best "I know a guy who knows a guy who has his phone number, and I PROMISE I'll have him come back and take you home" story. We don't want the candidates to fix things. They can't. We want them to get the people who are still stealing the paint off the wall on the horn and tell them they better cut the sh*t, or else. Any takers on the odds of that happening? Our leaders aren't in bed with the enemy, they're sucking his dick while they dust and make coffee while wearing a crotch-less French maid's outfit. And every so often they smile and ask to keep their jobs because "any day now, I'm going to ask daddy if you can use the car". We are a gullible lot.

Summercat: ....who? Never heard of this company.

They're the people that know the guys who are the assistants to the big wheels that say how sh*t works. They own very nice suits and a tastefully appointed office. Now start worrying!

Good thing I'm heavily invested in Cheetos, doritos and other snack foods. Also, strippers; very heavily invested in the stripper market.
