Well surprise, surprise!

Is this fiction?

Britain’s credit rating downgraded from AAA to Aa1

The Government’s economic strategy has been dealt a serious blow after a leading credit ratings agency downgraded UK debt on its expectation that growth will “remain sluggish over the next few years”.

And on the very same day, the following comes to light:

Bank of England closes in on China currency deal

Sir Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England, is on the brink of striking a deal with the People’s Bank of China which would cement the UK’s role as the leading G7 trade hub for the world’s fastest growing currency.

“Britain’s central bank has been eyeing such a deal for some time, saying last month it was ready “in principle” to adopt a currency swap line with its Chinese counterpart as the yuan starts to emerge as a world reserve currency.”

See my previous comments.  Then connect the dots…

    I smell a “George Soros”…I’ll bet he is rubbing his hands together and dancing with glee. How old is George? Isn’t it about time for that bastard to check out? No doubt his kids will continue his work but at least he wouldn’t see it finished. And the sooner he busts Hell wide open…the better!

    I quit drinking about 15 years ago, vowed to never touch it again but I will make an exception when he drops dead and have a shot of Jack Daniels….maybe even TWO!

      Don’t do that! He’s damn sure not worth it. Sorry POS! I hope he dies a long, horrible, death. Or maybe dances at the end of a rope.

    Don’t forget, DHS purchased 5 rounds for every man woman and child in CONUS. 5 rounds.
    The magic number to quell insurrections is 10%. Remove 10% of the population in the most violent way possible and the remaining 90% will fall in line. At least that is the theory that I have heard from the leftists. 10% is a mere 3 million (give or take a half mil ) and that means that its not 5 rounds per person, but 50 rounds per for the 10%.

    And seeing the accuracy of the police in California, they will need far more than 50 per, so long as they aren’t able to corner us in flammable buildings. Precedent and the play book are in working order as recently shown by Dorner, no matter what his warped mind believed. That is the fate they wish on all of us that are done bowing down.

      All of this adds up to a lot of body bags. It would be nice it all gun owners suddenly decided they had enough and began to do something to make things right. What are the latest figures there? Depending on the source one uses I’ve read from 60-80 million…that would take the starch out of Comrade Kenyans underwear.

        Well, as for the figures, I wouldn’t go counting on them. They are based upon sales and those figures didn’t start to get tabulated until the mid 90’s or so I am lead to understand. AND, those numbers are based on NICS checks which do NOT account for multiple purchases on one check, even though they include the serial numbers on the checks. Figure that an average gun owners have at least 3 or 4 guns: a handgun, small rifle, large rifle and a shotgun or some combination thereof and that is the low side of average. Give 10% of the 60-80M reason and you have a rather substantial army with zero leadership to target and the more you crack down on that army, the more pissed off it gets. TPTwB have no way of contending with that and that is exactly what our founders intended. I don’t buy all the hype about “you can’t fight a tank or drone” as there are workarounds for every level of the wartable, and Americans are resilient in coming up with solutions when they are up against bad odds.
        Thats not to say it won’t be without losses or tears. Thats a given anytime politics devolves to taking the gloves off. We are very close to that point.

          A lot of money. For an oven…

          Two old F4500’s, six paint balloons, and a flame thrower ought to do the trick.

      Would not 10% be more like 30+ Million? They’re gonna need more ammunition. Especially when those 30 start shooting first, and picking up what the fools drop on the ground!

        And you are correct, I dropped the decimal point, Again! LOL Bad for that one of late, Still, if they go for only one percent the effect would be further reaching that just that one percent. Whereas we, would have to go for at least 50% to have similar effect on them OR starting hitting targets beyond normal battle etiquette. Targets that would strike some as terror targets (which they would be to tptb.)
        As for the misplaced decimals, well, I could do worse. At least I am not using ‘new math’ like our treasury is.

          If you start using their math, we will have to claim YOU to be a terrorist!

          Dio this is one of the things I like about The Squirrels Nest. We are all human and make mistakes…we are all struggling to get into position for what is coming!

          As for going up against tanks, I held the MOS 19K (M1 Abrams crewman), with a little common sense and Yankee ingenuity they can be disabled. They are bad ass no doubt about it, but they are not impossible to stop. As you pointed out, Americans are able to come up with solutions for any problem!

          Drones will be a wee bit more difficult for the average person.

    I hope that Soros and his ilk get what Karma they have coming to them. The storm is fast approaching Gentlemen. Stay safe!

      I know it’s coming. Cause I keep getting in worse and worse health. I feel it more and more every day.
