The currency cools while the country bakes!

So, this is how Congress plans to run things from now on?

As an economic cesspool? And, do you all know what that is? It’s a toxic mix of watered down currency, fecal politicians and diseased Wall Streeter’s. Yeech! Now, Standard and Poor has gone and downgraded our currency from AAA to AA+. S&P stated; "The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics," S&P said Friday shortly after markets closed for the week. Neither Fitch or Moody have altered their triple-A ratings as of yet.

Meanwhile, Obama and his Congress ‘party on’ like there’s no tomorrow.

Let’s see…August may be hotter, but with more rain!

You know, this crazy weather could just get interesting. July was just plain hot with only a smidgeon of precipitation (1.37 inches) falling here in Forsyth, Mo. Now, August looks to be even more ‘exciting’ if that’s the word, with mostly hundred degree days AND plenty of rain. So, I’m getting this vision in my head of a mid western tropical rain forest setting complete with exotic birds and maybe a few crocodiles thrown in for fun! Now, I’m no expert, but aren’t those the kind of conditions that you find in an Amazon rain forest? Gee, can we also expect an upswing in diseases like dengue fever and malaria? Will three inch cockroaches become common like they are in the Louisiana swamps? Canada! You’re looking better and better to me every year.

At some point, things just have to get back to normal here in the Midwest. I think a ‘normal high’ for August would be in the mid eighties and a ‘normal low’ sixty something. Certainly, not this 103°F furnace crap combined with sweltering nightly lows of around 78°F. I’m just happy that I don’t live in Texas where things are considerably worst. It’s hot and dry there. If anything grows down there this year, I’ll bet it had the ending ‘tus after it. As in cactus!
