So who are Standard and Poors, and who is it that pays them to wipe trillions of dollars off the global economy? Has there ever been a more expensive pen stroke than the solitary one lost between AAA and AA+? Do they just sit around....rating things? What with Standard and Poors making this trillion-dollar attack on its economy, why isn't the U.S dropping LGBs on them? "We are now downgrading the U.S credit rating to-" EXPLODE. Problem solved.
I can't fathom how this works. It's as if everything Hollywood ever did was directly dictated by Rotten Tomatoes scores. (Hint: it isn't.)
Two obvious (to me) preferable possibilities to recent events seem to raise themselves:
1) They downgrade the U.S credit rating from AAA to AA+ (God that's stupid) , and everyone merely ignores it.
2) They realise that downgrading the U.S credit rating from AAA to AA+ might well help to touch off a second global financial crisis, and so they don't do it.
I have concluded, therefore, that they are vampires. An ancient cabal of vampires who secretly guide and shape human society. That makes a lot more sense.
Furthermore, credit agency Ben Allan's Credit Agency is, after careful consideration, awarding the U.S its top AAAAAA1!!RainbowUnicorn rating. Logically, that should solve the problem.
