Investors also piled into Treasurys, driving down the yield on the benchmark 10-year note sharply to 2.804%, its lowest close since last November. Yields, which fall as prices rise, cratered as investors searched for a safe haven ahead of the Aug. 2 debt-ceiling deadline.

All three major credit-rating firms have warned they could lower the top-notch rating of U.S. debt if the borrowing limit isn’t raised.

From the Rich White Motherfucker Journal.

So let me see if I’ve got this straight. We’ve got to slash spending immediately because (1) if we don’t, the debt ceiling can’t be raised, and if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, then the US will default on its Treasury bonds, and (2) if we don’t cut spending then the rating agencies will downgrade Treasury bonds, thus instantly making them worth less. And because of all this, investors “piling into Treasurys”, because they perceive them as a “safe haven”.

Gee, How Surprising

Right-wing teabagger lying “fiscal conservative” greedy vicious piece of shit owes his child over $100,000 in back child support that the fucken scumbag never paid. These fucken teabagger shitheels are a suppurating pustule on the hairy ass of the american polity and should be kicked to the fucken curb with extreme prejudice in 2012.

MARINADE INGREDIENTS

quarter cup basil leaves
quarter cup cilantro leaves
six garlic cloves
two tablespoons chili garlic sauce
two tablespoons fish sauce
one teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
one teaspoon finely grated lime zest
two tablespoons honey
half cup olive oil

(This is a slightly modified version of a marinade recipe from the July issue of Food & Wine.)

Chop the basil, cilantro, garlic, fish sauce, and chili sauce well in a mini food processor. Then add the zests, oil, and honey. Blend until the marinade is emulsified well.

Put twenty cleaned shrimp in the marinade and refrigerate for about three hours.

POLENTA INGREDIENTS

two cups otto file (“eight row”) red corn meal
olive oil
half cup diced carrot
half cup diced celery
half cup diced onion
six diced garlic cloves
salt and pepper
splash pisco
one cup white wine
two quarts water
two tablespoons butter
one cup grated pecorino di moliterno

Sautee the onions, carrots, and celery until carrots are almost soft. Then add the garlic and some fresh-ground black pepper and continue to sautee until the garlic is soft. All the sauteeing should be done on low, as you don’t want the vegetables to brown.

Deglaze with pisco and wine, turn up heat and reduce until alcohol is gone.

Pour the two quarts water into the pot, gradually stir in the corn meal to avoid clumping, bring to a boil, and then turn to a very low simmer and cover the pot. Cook for at least one and a half hours, stirring well every fifteen minutes or so to avoid burning/sticking on the bottom.

When the polenta is done (very creamy and tender, not grainy), turn off the heat, stir in the butter and cheese well to incorporate, cover, and allow to rest for about five minutes.

While the polenta is cooking, put the shrimp on pre-soaked skewers (so they don’t burn). Using two skewers makes it much easier to turn the shrimp on the grill.

Grill the shrimp on both sides until cooked.

YUM!

Fact of the Day

Gibbering dumfucke Congressional Republicans objectively hate America, as proven by their gleefulness at taking the nation to the brink (and if they get their way, over the edge) of fiscal disaster, willfully destroying our global creditworthiness without any reason to do so beyond the voices they hear in their sickefucke heads. And the greedy right-wing “reasonable” motherfucken greedheads and pundits like David Fucken Brooks who have been seeding those voices for fucken DECADES because they want to save some fucken money on their taxes bear even greater responsibility. The golem they have created is now out of control.
