Mendacious, Duplicitous Fraud: Do I suspect S & P KNEW the Justice Department was coming after them? Was the reducing of the US credit rating a shot across the bow for a complaint they knew soon would be sailing their way? Who can know? At the very least I personally cannot know.

In the alternative perhaps the Justice Department under the order of someone higher up said sock it to these disgusting hypocrites. That S&P could downgrade anything much less the nation and bring the stock market in a downward spiral inside of two days, makes them a laughing stock. It would be like Bernie Madoff rating someone on their honesty.

S & P is perhaps one of the most EGREGIOUS offenders in the economic near Depression of 2007 under Bush, rating stock Triple A, being paid by the ones who sell the stock so that the buyers were totally defrauded. S & P in its phony ratings and collusion with companies like Goldman Sachs is guilty of nothing less than outright FRAUD and securities violations to the maximum degree. They could and should not rate a pair of shoes much less rate trillions of dollars of phony junk stock.

Human beings are in the mix here. Let me say that again in a different way. S & P rating company lackeys and their Wall Street masters made war against this country. Rick Perry, you want to talk about treason? Let's talk about Wall Street treason and the rating companies would go to the head of the class! Shameless utterly singularly shameless greed with NO boundaries and NO ethics and NO regulation. But go ahead elect another Republican to Congress and god forbid the presidency and see what you get with no regulation.

Wall Street needs a Pecora Commission times TEN and with teeth. I have been saying for two years that cells next to Bernie Madoff should be reserved. Heck reserve whole floors and put the privatized prison system to good use.Lock up the REAL criminals who took people's jobs, their savings, their homes and their lives and laughed all the way to the bank while doing it!
Help -- a review by Melissa Harris Perry of "Help" the movie.

As stated on Prof. Perry's web page

"Melissa Harris-Perry is professor of political science at Tulane University, where she is founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. She previously served on the faculties of the University of Chicago and Princeton University. Her academic research is inspired by a desire to investigate the challenges facing contemporary black Americans and to better understand the multiple, creative ways that African Americans respond to these challenges. She is also an award winning author and appears regularly on MSNBC and other media venues."

She is often a guest of Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell and in the past Keith Olbermann. She is BRILLIANT. I attach her review of the movie "Help" about the African American maids of white women in the south at the edge of the Civil Rights movement.

I have not yet seen this film. Based on Ms. Perry's evaluation of it (link below) I may reverse my original desire to see it and simply NOT do so. I do not need any more Olympian size injustice to raise my blood pressure higher than it already is raised when I am forced to digest the racist swill that exists within the Republican Party whose candidates are predominantly white, Christian and state's rights oriented remnants of the Old Confederacy. In its infinite wisdom this nauseating party may choose as its presidential picks for 2012 those who represent this poisonous brew.

If you are going to see it I offer her review on Larry O'Donnell for your consideration.
