  1. When the Iran Deal was nixed something had to give. The timing of it with the elections might have been wholly calculated in the current administration's mind. Did they let Abadi and the clerics know before then that they had his back fighting corruption? Abadi seems to be pretty comfortable running things with all the mess around him. What surprises me is...Iran and the corrupt ilk wasted no time acting...they must have a LOT to lose. Push is really coming to shove, and it's good thing...the corrupt within Iraq and Iran can't assume they can just do whatever they want anymore.

    Can't remember this pumper's name...
  5. As long as Republicans and Democrats don't get along and work together in DC, nothing will change. China and India will continue to profit from the bickering/splintering, as will Europe and Russia. The anger fueled by both parties on the street and in government in the US is at an all time high with no end in sight, and the US people who get caught up in choosing "which side of the fence they're on" suffer emotionally and figuratively for it without realizing it/how they're acting...which is usually butthurt about their agenda. Not many see that, and it's getting worse. Racism, spiritual divisions. apathy, sadism, passive/aggressive BS, fear of real emotional intimacy, petty arguing about nothing important...it's all pretty tangible these days, and the emotional flame is fanned by the media, they know what sells...which is drama, chaos, and overall mindless pap. Funny how people think Trump, Palin, or Maxine Waters brought this on...it's been building since the early 80's. Hoping tech billionaires with money, sense and influence will change things someday, but they're too smart and...disinterested...to change things. They're too busy changing the landscape we live in (mostly for the better) on a global scale, so why should they bother, anyway? As a whole...Thiel, Musk, Ellison, Bezos, Brin and anyone else in that realm (billionaires and influential) show little interest in changing the political status quo...they don't make excuses and continue to innovate and create, while the rest of the masses b---h and moan about an antiquated constitution, lobbyists, and continue their "patriotic" whining and posturing. Whatever happened to emotional intelligence, anyway?
  6. What faction actually demanded...and got...the recount? The federal court?
  7. Great, I'll take some karma ...Noticed you'd posted about trading the market somewhere, I trade options full time. You still trading?
  8. A little Doobie Brothers as well...Karmic Hay-zeus.
  9. Might Abadi end someday up as more of a diplomat than a politician?
  10. A lot going on right now...revalue or not, Iraq seems to be on the current administration's mind, doesn't it? It appears they definitely want the "fallout' from the Iran situation to end up in their favor over there politically, and are willing to send envoys, diplomats, etc. They played the Iran card, not sure if it wasn't a "defined risk" play now...they might have let Iraq, (the clerics, etc) know they have their back before they pulled out of the Iran deal and BEFORE the election results. If we see meetings with Sadr soonish that would be interesting.
