    Metaphor for U.S Debt Crisis... Prez and Boehner Make Deal and S &P Downgrades U.S. to "AA" Anyway Adding Insult to Injury

    After a senselessly grueling negotiation for months on deficit reduction both sides lost all credibility shortly after making as deal.   Within moments of word getting out that Obama and Boehner had reached an agreement, those rating agency geniuses from S &P announced there was still a 50-50 chance they would downgrade the U.S. to "AA" just for good measure as early  as August.  Second only to Moody's , S&P issued 64,000 AAA ratings for CDO's while only 7 U.S. Corporations maintain a AAA rating.

    Fagilyu (l) and husband Fagili Mukhametzyanov (r). Fagilyu died of a heart attack at her own funeral after she was mistakenly declared dead by doctors.

    A Russian woman died from a heart attack brought on by the shock of waking up at her own funeral.

    Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, was mistakenly declared deceased by doctors, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

    But she later woke up - in a coffin surrounded by sobbing relatives. She started screaming after realizing she was about to be buried alive.

    Mukhametzyanov, a resident of Kazan, was rushed back to the hospital where she was declared dead -- this time for real.

    Her husband, Fagili Mukhametzyanov, was distraught.

    "Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital but she only lived for another 12 minutes," he said.

    He told The Sun that he would sue the hospital.

    "I am very angry and want answers. She wasn't dead when they said she was and they could have saved her."

    A spokesman at the hospital, also in Kazan, said officials were investigating.
