Chris, please don’t be that surprised that the topic is back, it cropped up big time yesterday with Standard and Poors downgrades, I don’t think it can be ignored nor go away until it finally is over, but what do I know?
Hi Angie, I was being a bit tongue in cheek, am not surprised it is back. In fact back when it started, I contributed with some interest and very little boredom as it happens. It did kind of go on a bit though and get crazy with protestations of instant doom toward the end.
As for the Standard and Poor downgrades, these would be the same people that rated America’s investment banks triple AAA within days of the collapse of Lehman Bros.
And wasn’t the USA downgraded to AA+ or some such back last year? Do we really take any notice of that anymore?
Might have been better as a new thread I think, more people might have picked up on it instead of reading through 17 pages of now irrelevant and often rather bizarre thoughts – my own included!
