    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.

    Exhorbitant Privilege


    Mirror Mirror ont he Wall...

    ...Whose Got the Cheapest Capital of Them All?



    Exhorbitant Pivilege, a term  coined in the late '60s by those griping Frenchies, Valery  Giscard d'Éstaing & Co, this concept nonetheless almost assures an over-all advantage of having the world's reserve currency and has been estimated to reduce the US cost of capital by nearly 300 basis points.  In spite of our intellectual incontinence and policy failures, it seems by being reckless we have still taken advantage of the the largest pool of mispriced capital know to man.
