  1. If it is predestined for you, the very definition of the word begets the opposite of free will. For if every decision you make leads to the same outcome one could discuss that you have not beengiven free will at all since every decision made in multiple paths all lead the the final destination. So free will is more like pseudo free will. Free will is about choosing multiple paths at multiple forks leading to various outcomes. You only prescribe to the belief that the various decisions you make is your free will but nomatter the decision youhave but one outcome. you neglected the fact Jesus said not to prosyletize to the gentiles, the Jews. He also said he did not come to bring a new covenant but to affirm the covenant already in place. Jesus also said love thy neighbor buthe never said to lie down and die for him either. In fact he justified war on the day before he was arrested. Most of the time Jesus did speak in parables which is why there are those who get confused by his teachings and believe he is all about peace. Jesus was a rebel plain and simple. He defied the synagogue by teaching what was not mainstream of the day. The New Testament may be the accountingof the life of Jesus,the Son of God, but never did Jesus say he was God. When he spoke to Pontus he was asked if he was the Messiah and the Kingof the Jews. Never was he asked if he was God.Jesus himself on the cross cried out to his Father, Lord Thy God. So if he cried out to his Father, who is the Father he cries out to? The egg theory doesn't hold in this context. When Jesus prayed he prayed to his Father, Lord Thy God, was he praying to himself? Again in this context the egg theory does not hold because while youcan be a father, son and brother, you cannot be the father to yourself. It would be I am my own Father and thus impossible to create yourself. While I do believe Jesus died for our sins as the Son of God, I stop short of calling him a god. I do believe in the Holy Miracles that he performed but again stop short of calling him a god. This all goes back to the Council of Nicene when it was manwho determined what shall be included in the works of the Bible. I also subscribe to the theory of Holy Mother and Mary Magdelene as a disciple of Jesus but am not sold totally on the two, Mary Magdelene and Jesus, being married. Withthe Holy Roman Catholic Church consolidating power at the time of Nicene it is not that far from the path to believe that this consolidation of power was done in such a way to discredit Mary Magdelene as it was not until Nicene that the common philosophy was she was a prostitute Jesus saved from being stoned. We differ on predestination theory. You are of the belief youhave free will but all your choices have a binary outcome. We go to heaven or hell. Jews believe in only heaven. There is no hell in Judiaism. Hell is a christian belief taken fromreligions that came before it. Angels are neither Christian nor Judiac philosophy. They too originate before. I have said Iamnot Christian but never ever have I said I do not believe in Jesus, Godand the Holy Ghost. I once was invited to convert to Catholicism. I found confrontation in what they wanted me to believe. While truth does exist in the Bible, it has been misinterpreted and misapplied over the course of history to bend man to the will of those above him. Kings declare divine right when powe has been taken by the sword in most cases. I also believe there is something beyond the here and now. I believe in demons and other stuff Christianity disavows. To me something is notbad or good but the use of it makes it so. Forexample the commandment thou shall not kill. Jesus while preffered not to kill said there was a justifiable time for it when in the grden he said to sell your cloakandbuya sword. This has been said to be a parable like most of his teachings. However, Jesus did come to the conclusion one must defend themselves if that meant killing. The point when the disciple lobbed off the ear of the soldier and Jesusput it back, a Holy Miracle, the action of lobbing off the ear of the soldier was not done in mortl defense for the soldiers did not want to kill the disciples and Jesus knew this. Hence his actions. So when I hear peace love from Christians I know the crap they have been fed is the fairy tale version of Jesus and not the real Jesus of the day. When I hear someone tell me they have free will and yet their outcome inlife has been predetermined, that is not free will and again another bill of goods has been sold of the fairy tale. Jesus was a real person, the fairy tale has how his life and works during that life have been so blown out of porportion that it borders on the immpossible. To me Jesus is not a God, a Messiah yes, God no. I believe as the Son of Man he was the sacrificial lamb. NDEs are very real and most of the time we only hear about good NDEs. There are those NDEs that confirm the existence of hell but these are not talked about. When a person experiences an NDE it changes their life. There is no free will in that and most will agree its not predestined. Nutjobs are the ones who interpret these as turning from the path of evil to the path of righteousness. NDEs are experienced by people from all walks of life, even those currently traversing the path of righteousness. So they cannot be shown this to be turned from the path they are on if they walk the path of righteousness. Some walk not the path of righteousness and do turn but veer back the further away their NDE occurred. inthe dark ages people did not understand things they could not see. They needed someone or somthing to blame. The devil was an easy out for most. Pagans were easy to blame and it was easy to say that they were possessed bythe devil because they did not believe asChristians believed. Again, only intentions and actions can be good or evil. In the end, we find out that it was not the belief of the Pagan to which they subjugated but what they lived on and off of was the true source of why they were subjugated. Christianity is not without its faults as it is of man from which it was born. Jesus was a Jew and Rabbi. He never ever wanted to be anything else. The schism between Jews and Christians lies in that fact. Some will tell you Christianity started with the death of Jesus. Wrong. Christianity started with the conclusion of the Council of Nicene, when it consolidated all the things at the the time to form one standardized belief. Christians all held the belief that Jesus was the Messiah in the beginning. There were females who taught but Nicene removed them from this position. From the death of Jesus to the Council of Nicene Chriatianity was a much different culture than before Nicene. The patriarchy of Christianity was formed with the position of the pope and since women were not equals to men of the day, they were regulated to the pews instead of the altar. Nicene saw to this and one of the reasons why Mary Magdelene was regulated to that of a prostitute forever more in history. It wasn't until the Protestant reform that things changed and different denominations began to come into the sunlight. Christianity is more than the Bible and there are many things good that have come from it. However, in all things evil resides in the actions of men. '
  2. This revised budget comes after the June 5 review of the SBA between Iraq and the IMF and was kind of expected since changes were made to the 2017 budget: IMF Team Reaches Staff-Level Agreement on 2nd Review of SBA with Iraq June 5, 2017 June 5, 2017 The Stand-By Arrangement aims to restore fiscal and external balance and to improve public financial management while protecting social spending. The Iraqi authorities and the IMF mission have reached agreement on a supplementary budget for 2017, objectives for the 2018 budget, and strengthened procedures to keep expenditure under control The SBA aims to restore fiscal and external balance and to improve public financial management while protecting social spending. The Iraqi authorities and an International Monetary Fund (IMF) team reached a staff-level agreement on the second review of the Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) that was approved by the IMF Executive Board on July 7, 2016 (See Press Release No. 16/321). The SBA aims to restore fiscal and external balance and to improve public financial management while protecting social spending. Iraq completed the first review under the SBA on December 5, 2016 and received a disbursement of SDR 0.46 billion (US$0.6 billion) (See Press Release No. 16/540). Completion of the second review will release a further disbursement of SDR 0.6 billion (US$0.8 billion). Mr. Christian Josz, Mission Chief for Iraq, issued the following statement today in Amman: “The Iraqi authorities and the IMF team have reached agreement on a supplementary budget for 2017, objectives for the 2018 budget, and strengthened procedures to keep expenditure under control. Both the supplementary 2017 budget and the 2018 budget will keep the fiscal consolidation, necessitated by the fall in oil prices, on track, while protecting social spending. “Once agreed prior actions have been implemented, the IMF Board could consider the second review of the SBA in August. “During the discussions, the team met with Acting Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI), Dr. Ali Mohsen Ismail Al-Allaq, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister, Dr. Naufel Al-Hassan, Chairman of the Board of Supreme Audit, Dr. Salah Noori Khalaf, Acting Deputy Finance Minister, Ms. Taif Same, Deputy Minister of Planning, Dr. Qasim Enaya, Deputy Minister of Electricity, Mr. Abdel Hamza, Financial Adviser to the Prime Minister, Dr. Mudher Saleh, and officials from the ministry of finance, Central Bank of Iraq (CBI), the Board of Supreme Audit, the ministry of oil, the ministry of planning, the ministry of electricity, and a representative from the Kurdistan Regional Government. The team would like to thank the Iraqi authorities for their cooperation and the open and productive discussions.” IMF Communications Department MEDIA RELATIONS PRESS OFFICER: WAFA AMR PHONE: +1 202 623-7100EMAIL: MEDIA@IMF.ORG
  3. Mr. Negative strikes again.
  4. The guys own words to why this was not mentioned: "I never thought this would be such a big deal to be honest," he told AP. The lawyer's validity is in question as to how she arrived in the United States after failing to gain lawful entry through legal means. Lynch provided the means for her to gain entry. So the hit here is that there is a witness the lawyer was in the country met with Trump Jr. and the meeting led to nothing as to what it was originally purported to be about. This hit is more of a hit on Lynch and former POSTUS administration. It was a failed setup from the get go. Keep trying.
  5. It is a misnomer ISIS has been routed from Iraq at this juncture. Sure there may be less than 300 ISIS fighters in Mosul and Mosul declared to be liberated. There are swaths of land and towns which are still controlled by ISIS even though the narrative is that ISIS fled to Syria. Iraq has faced what Saddam has kept in check through brutal force - in-fighting. It is going to be a long while before Iraqis get rid of the mindset forced into their lives by the rule of strong forceful government telling them what to do. They saw their government as strong because the person holding the whip always appears strong to those who are being hit by said whip. Outside of Iraq, the government reputation was that it was weak and ineffectual. It took Iraq nine months to liberate Mosul.
  6. So let me get this straight, Rockfish who drinks the salt water kool-aid man no ever tell you not to drink the salt water? You stated earlier that the Dinar has absolutely no value whatsoever. Yet you took your derriere to the local dinar dealer which just so happens you name by name and is an hour away from you. You walked in, exchanged the dinar you held in your nicotine stained fingers and walked out with US dollars. Certainly, even someone as dumb witted as you can see the irony in what you espouse and how your actions have betrayed those espousals. So what we have here is the espousal the dinar is worth nothing and yet you exchanged it for something. You exchanged it for something else which is the very definition of "value". Here is why, if you took the dinar, held in your nicotine stained fingers, to the local dinar exchange and said you would like to exchange what you hold for US dollars and got nothing in return, that would then be worthless. However, exchanging the dinar for other currency, or even other tangible or intangible goods or services, has a value on it. Mind you not the same value you originally exchanged it for, but nonetheless, it has a value you agreed to when you exchanged it for something else. Losing money on an investment is called RISK. You took the RISK in the form of exchanging your currency for another in hopes the investment would yield a REWARD. You are bitter because you lost money on the investment and didn't realize a REWARD as you feel was promised to you or <fill in the blank here>. You then set off to convince others this investment, based off of your sole experience with the RISK outweighing the REWARD as the REWARD did not happen according to your expectations, it was therefore bad for everyone. And therein lies the rub. The potential was not realized at the time you removed yourself from the investment and therefore you became emotionally tied to it before, after and during the investment. Do your neighbors a favor, never make another investment again with your own money, you are too co-dependent on it and it affects others around you. You would not like it when the RV happens and your neighbors become very angry toward you. And an angry mob mentality is something you won't want to contend with. You might even want to move away from your neighborhood to someplace like the moon per se.
  7. Fall would be good but it's not what the article states in the last line: "He added ..., we continue to work ... to prepare a comprehensive vision for the next decade [and] will offer ... the vision of Iraq 2030". In the Fall Iraq will share with the rest of their world their vision going forth through 2030. Like all good businesses, they have a multi-year plan in which outlines their vision for x number of years and revise it when they need to.Most of the top Fortune 500 businesses will offer their vision to those who ask, In a nutshell, in the Fall, Iraq is doing nothing more than proclaiming what their intended plan will be for in the Economy moving forward through 2030. It will be something to keep an eye on of course. Iraq has a current plan through 2020 and it can be found on the CBI website. This vision will expound upon that. This is good news as their intentions become known, however, all good plans remain fluid and change the further away from the time they were prepared.
  8. How much overweight are you? How was your childhood?
  9. Not liking the truth are we dawg? Ah soo vewy sowy.
  10. By the way, I did date the cheerleader, a NY Jets Cheerleader in '97. She lived in Boston and she had her own dance studio. Didn't want to have children so I broke it off. The football team and the wrestling team were constantly asking me to join but was prohibited by my parents at the time fearing injury because my idiot older brother got hurt. So I guess that put your theory to shambles huh?
  11. This is the conversation being alluded to here. Notice the first post I quote Bot for saying I should be doing other things. Never did I play up my degrees in this thread. So people going to continue to believe a lie or be convinced that I have said all along I was responding to a post someone else made as to length of the RV is taking.

Just because Mosul is liberated does not mean that ISIS is out of Iraq. They are still along the border between Syria and Iraq, and occupy the town of Hawiji <sp?>. I recall reading once Daesh was out of Iraq then things will be better off. Now this has turned into Mosul? The barbarians are still at the gates. Again...ChinaDawg continues to be correct.

The thread in question was about how this RV had gone on so long. I replied to the particular post I agreed and by the time this RV happened I will have earned both degrees. I was not promulgated them nor was I pointing them out. The achievement was in relationship to the amount of time that will have elapsed. The two idiots don't want to see that instead they want to call names and they get away with it. And like sheeple follow them. I am damn proud of the accomplishments I have earned but I have never once said that those pieces of paper make me any smarter than anyone else. Hell, I know PhDs working at McDonalds. The two morons entered a thread and picked up on the fact I said this. Just like this article shows that these two complete imbeciles (china and botz) never read the article in its entirety. Now people are chastising me for giving a flying f**k and pointing out their actions. They are no more braver than stupid individuals hiding behind a computer. The people who negged followed in line. Have you read this entire thread? Do I not have the right to stand up or do I continue the charade of ignoring them so that they will move on to some other poor sap. I know full well what I am doing. These two run together on this site, and people need to take a closer look at their input on this site. Your eyes will be opened up. So while they are focused on me their aim is not on you or anyone else at the moment. They get off on this. And here is the thing, people don't watch and observe. They follow hence the negs. I am going to get negged for this too but do I care? Nope. The only thing I care about is doing my work well, patiently waiting for the RV to happen and having fun with the imbeciles to bide the time between now and the RV. Never have I once said the RV will never happen, it just won't happen in the next six months. If I am wrong, hey that is great for everyone. Those who have been posting for years and years and allow this crap to continue at as much fault as the two imbeciles on this site. They only input they have is to denigrate. Maybe it's to run people off. Maybe its so they can get their jollies. I have been dealing with people like this for years in different forums. They are innocent. So yeah I will take the heat until they get bored and when they turn their sites onto you, what are you going to do? Sit there and ignore them because you think that is the upper hand? Man if I am scared of these two idiots, and I am not, then something is wrong with them. I have had a fatwa put on my head, I have people tell me they would put a bullet in my brain. I have even had gun put to my forehead. Let me tell you something about my past, My first paid job I was swinging a scythe in 90 degree weather to cut down weeds for the city. I went on to enlist in the Navy where I had training accident that I ened up partially paralyzed until I rehabilited myself in the pool. My lungs were burnt up from O2 toxicity from being in a hyperbaric chamber for 13 hours 610 minutes of it was on pure oxygen. My father said he would disown me if I did not play his game. I fought tooth and nail to get my Bachelor's degree because the VA said I wouldn't be able to this degree or that degree. I started my degree in 1991 I finished my degree in 2012. I have had the VA almost kill me and change my records. My degrees do not make me who I am. I have worked more jobs than you will ever in a lifetime. Through persistance and perseverance I am able to stand before you today. I have been I can never fly or dive again in my life because if I do it could end my life. I have driven through Denver, I have flown to California. I don't have to ever work again in my life, but I choose to. I don't choose to sit around and wait to die like so many do. I make the choice to continue on. After 9-11 happened I faced off with a crowd that would turn your head. I have had so many death threats against my life I lost count long ago. When you have already met death and survived then idiots like these two are just that. I call it like I see it. If you don't like it, sorry bout your luck. My life since I had my accident has been rougher than most but I am grateful for it. It hasn't been rougher than some. I go after what I want and do get it. Sometimes brashfully and sometimes with all the tact in the world. In the end I get what I want because I have the focus and determination that most would give up on when the going got tough. Your words are not for my ears because I know exactly what I do. The little emeralds or rubys are nothing more than that. They mean nothing and symbolize nothing. Do I care one way? Nope. The more rubies I get the prouder I feel because I know people are moved by it. So the two idiots who want to harass me, I think people should look closer at their posts. It is an eye opening experience. The piss on people's parades, I didn't do that. People need to reading lessons because the September 25 is in the article. It wasn't bolded or colored. So the Kurds are the ones who pissed on people's parade. Just like Maliki keeps doing. Think whaty you want, I have said it enough the RV won't happpen in 2017 nor 2018. Hell the last thread that I said this in, all kinds of people attacked me and were sure the RV would happen either before or after Rammadingdong. Guess they were wrong, again. So if you want to enter a conversation in the middle go ahead. However, you shouldn't believe everything you hear at that point in the conversation because what these two idiots are harping on me about is no less fake than what CNN puts out night after night. People bought into the narrative and if you tell a lie long enough to enough people they believe it. You sir, while I don't know you, have bought into the lie they promulgate. I finish my doctorate in 2019. I have never said anything other than I am proud to have accomplished that feat and that this RV has gone long enough I will have earned those degrees. So before go spouting off that I think I am above others and saying I am better because I have these degrees they need to think twice before reacting to something they know nothing about. People need to reread this thread. Find the offense lodged against me to start this whole thing and then think I m some sort of delusional nut case need to check themselves before they hurt themselves. My point being idlplzr you spoke too soon and to the wrong person. Because there always be someone who has had it worse. I am glad you are who you are today. Will you be that way tomorrow? Only God makes that decision. The discussion didn't start here nor will it finish here. BEcause believe me I get booted from this site, their actions will just migrate to someone else. And that you can take to the bank. Thanks for reminding me,,,I knew I had left one other possibilty off my list.

Psychosis is characterized by an impaired relationship with reality. And it is a symptom of serious mental disorders. People who are psychotic may have either hallucinations or delusions. are sensory experiences that occur Hallucinationswithin the absence of an actual stimulus. For example, a person having an auditory hallucination may hear their mother yelling at them when their mother isn’t around. Or someone having a visual hallucination may see something, like a person in front of them, who isn’t actually there. The person experiencing psychosis may also have thoughts that are contrary to actual evidence. These thoughts are known as delusions. Some people with psychosis may also experience loss of motivation and social withdrawal. These experiences can be frightening. They may also cause people who are experiencing psychosis to hurt themselves or others. It is important to see a doctor right away if you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of psychosis. Did you get all of that? Now, do I need to further my case? I could copy and paste the original thread to which I respond to how long the RV is taking if you want to where this started.
