S&P (Standard’s & Poor) downgraded the Unites States perfect AAA credit rating to just AA+ Friday after recent swings in the markets and turmoil from the debt ceiling crisis.

However, according to Bob Chapman of The International Forecaster, the plunge protection team did not step in, if at all, until very late. This would indicate that the markets may be rigged in nature (the outcome) to actually decline.

Apparently the whole debt ceiling compromise and media spectacle was complete nonsense, as proven by this announcement and the recent massive plunge in the stock market.

The following is a list from Wikipedia showing S&P credit scores for various countries — look at where we fall on the list in comparison to other countries now as a AA+ rated nation.
