Numbers Destroy U.S. Credit Rating!

By now you've probably heard the news about Standard and Poor's downgrading the United States' credit rating from AAA to AA+, also known as "junk bond" status. This economic destructionism constitutes nothing less than financial warfare waged against our country by the numeric hegemony.

In a week that saw a victorious victory for America in the War On Numbers, with the layoffs of more than 60,000 teachers, it appears that the numbers have counter-attacked.

As if there were any doubt in this dastardly deed being part of a plot by the global arithemetical conspiracy, the numbers left a clue in the form of a $2 trillion "mathematical error" in S&P's calculations.

The human-traitors at Standard and Poor's were quick to attribute this to - you guessed it - human error. A thing which we Math Skeptics know doesn't exist. Humans don't make errors. It is the numbers themselves that are inherently inaccurate, and always searching for an opportunity to destroy us.

With this rating change, I fear they may succeed.
