Market pundits mostly shrugged off Fitch's recent downgrade of U.S. debt. Fitch, one of the three primary rating services, downgraded U.S. credit ratings to AA+ from its highest rating of AAA, citing two decades of poor financial decision-making and political dysfunction as significant factors contributing to the downgrade. Only Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, Luxembourg, Singapore and Australia are awarded Fitch's AAA rating. Interestingly, "beer-drinking" European countries tend to have higher ratings overseas, while "wine-drinking" countries like France, Spain and Italy lag.

BOYS! BOYS! PLAY NICE!

Peter Navarro responds to McCarthy's latest statement that the US needs to restrict Chinese investments in the US.

โ€œThis asshole singlehandedly nixed a bill when I was in the White House that would have prevented Communist China from building our rail and subway systems because he had a China bus plant in his district. HYPOCRITE BLOWDRIED CCP B*TCH,โ€

It's 62 degrees! this morning and in a few hours will be taking the kayak to a nearby creek to mark elderberry plants for harvesting cuttings early next spring. One of the plants had huge umbels of fruit that were too big to easily put into a 5 gallon bucket without cramming them in.

BTW, nobody is getting any rides in that MiG-23 I mentioned the other day. From the video, it looks like some aircrew did not approve of the aircraft's performance.
