  1. I'm confused as to why people have to say they are leaving...is this like a suicide note, so we can have a better understanding why they're gone? If you're out, just go away. No one is going to start saying, "hey, whatever happened to uncs? You don't think he sold everything without telling us, do you?" Geez, some people get so personal about this speculative investment. Even if Iraq completely disappeared and took their dinar with them, I would just go onto something else. I mean, I've got a 401k that was doing pretty badly for a while, I certainly wouldn't tell the world if I decided to quit putting money into it and cash out.

  2. NO ONE forced ANYONE to buy Iraqi Dinars...SOOO many people jumped into this thinking they would be millionaires overnight, and years later, it still hasn't happened, and now the Dinar dealers are to blame! This is EXACTLY what is wrong with America!! No personal accountability...never invest more than you can afford to lose, and if you do end up losing, man the f*ck up, move on, and don't go around crying about it....

  3. George Zimmerman: Prelude to a shooting By Chris Francescani SANFORD, Florida | Thu Apr 26, 2012 9:24am IST SANFORD, Florida (Reuters) - A pit bull named Big Boi began menacing George and Shellie Zimmerman in the fall of 2009. The first time the dog ran free and cornered Shellie in their gated community in Sanford, Florida, George called the owner to complain. The second time, Big Boi frightened his mother-in-law's dog. Zimmerman called Seminole County Animal Services and bought pepper spray. The third time he saw the dog on the loose, he called again. An officer came to the house, county records show. "Don't use pepper spray," he told the Zimmermans, according to a friend. "It'll take two or three seconds to take effect, but a quarter second for the dog to jump you," he said. "Get a gun." That November, the Zimmermans completed firearms training at a local lodge and received concealed-weapons gun permits. In early December, another source close to them told Reuters, the couple bought a pair of guns. George picked a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun, a popular, lightweight weapon. By June 2011, Zimmerman's attention had shifted from a loose pit bull to a wave of robberies that rattled the community, called the Retreat at Twin Lakes. The homeowners association asked him to launch a neighborhood watch, and Zimmerman would begin to carry the Kel-Tec on his regular, dog-walking patrol - a violation of neighborhood watch guidelines but not a crime. Few of his closest neighbors knew he carried a gun - until two months ago. On February 26, George Zimmerman shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in what Zimmerman says was self-defense. The furor that ensued has consumed the country and prompted a re-examination of guns, race and self-defense laws enacted in nearly half the United States. During the time Zimmerman was in hiding, his detractors defined him as a vigilante who had decided Martin was suspicious merely because he was black. After Zimmerman was finally arrested on a charge of second-degree murder more than six weeks after the shooting, prosecutors portrayed him as a violent and angry man who disregarded authority by pursuing the 17-year-old. But a more nuanced portrait of Zimmerman has emerged from a Reuters investigation into Zimmerman's past and a series of incidents in the community in the months preceding the Martin shooting. Based on extensive interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors, schoolmates and co-workers of Zimmerman in two states, law enforcement officials, and reviews of court documents and police reports, the story sheds new light on the man at the center of one of the most controversial homicide cases in America. The 28-year-old insurance-fraud investigator comes from a deeply Catholic background and was taught in his early years to do right by those less fortunate. He was raised in a racially integrated household and himself has black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather - the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him. A criminal justice student who aspired to become a judge, Zimmerman also concerned himself with the safety of his neighbors after a series of break-ins committed by young African-American men. Though civil rights demonstrators have argued Zimmerman should not have prejudged Martin, one black neighbor of the Zimmermans said recent history should be taken into account. "Let's talk about the elephant in the room. I'm black, OK?" the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. "There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood," she said. "That's why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin." "MIXED" HOUSEHOLD George Michael Zimmerman was born in 1983 to Robert and Gladys Zimmerman, the third of four children. Robert Zimmerman Sr. was a U.S. Army veteran who served in Vietnam in 1970, and was stationed at Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia, in 1975 with Gladys Mesa's brother George. Zimmerman Sr. also served two tours in Korea, and spent the final 10 years of his 22-year military career in the Pentagon, working for the Department of Defense, a family member said. In his final years in Virginia before retiring to Florida, Robert Zimmerman served as a magistrate in Fairfax County's 19th Judicial District. Robert and Gladys met in January 1975, when George Mesa brought along his army buddy to his sister's birthday party. She was visiting from Peru, on vacation from her job there as a physical education teacher. Robert was a Baptist, Gladys was Catholic. They soon married, in a Catholic ceremony in Alexandria, and moved to nearby Manassas. Gladys came to lead a small but growing Catholic Hispanic enclave within the All Saints Catholic Church parish in the late 1970s, where she was involved in the church's outreach programs. Gladys would bring young George along with her on "home visits" to poor families, said a family friend, Teresa Post. "It was part of their upbringing to know that there are people in need, people more in need than themselves," said Post, a Peruvian immigrant who lived with the Zimmermans for a time. Post recalls evening prayers before dinner in the ethnically diverse Zimmerman household, which included siblings Robert Jr., Grace, and Dawn. "It wasn't only white or only Hispanic or only black - it was mixed," she said. Zimmerman's maternal grandmother, Cristina, who had lived with the Zimmermans since 1978, worked as a babysitter for years during Zimmerman's childhood. For several years she cared for two African-American girls who ate their meals at the Zimmerman house and went back and forth to school each day with the Zimmerman children. "They were part of the household for years, until they were old enough to be on their own," Post said. Zimmerman served as an altar boy at All Saints from age 7 to 17, church members said. "He wasn't the type where, you know, 'I'm being forced to do this,' and a dragging-his-feet Catholic," said Sandra Vega, who went to high school with George and his siblings. "He was an altar boy for years, and then worked in the rectory too. He has a really good heart." George grew up bilingual, and by age 10 he was often called to the Haydon Elementary School principal's office to act as a translator between administrators and immigrant parents. At 14 he became obsessed with becoming a Marine, a relative said, joining the after-school ROTC program at Grace E. Metz Middle School and polishing his boots by night. At 15, he worked three part-time jobs - in a Mexican restaurant, for the rectory, and washing cars - on nights and weekends, to save up for a car. After graduating from Osbourn High School in 2001, Zimmerman moved to Lake Mary, Florida, a town neighboring Sanford. His parents purchased a retirement home there in 2002, in part to bring Cristina, who suffers from arthritis, to a warmer climate. YOUNG INSURANCE AGENT On his own at 18, George got a job at an insurance agency and began to take classes at night to earn a license to sell insurance. He grew friendly with a real estate agent named Lee Ann Benjamin, who shared office space in the building, and later her husband, John Donnelly, a Sanford attorney. "George impressed me right off the bat as just a real go-getter," Donnelly said. "He was working days and taking all these classes at night, passing all the insurance classes, not just for home insurance, but auto insurance and everything. He wanted to open his own office - and he did." In 2004, Zimmerman partnered with an African-American friend and opened up an Allstate insurance satellite office, Donnelly said. Then came 2005, and a series of troubles. Zimmerman's business failed, he was arrested, and he broke off an engagement with a woman who filed a restraining order against him. That July, Zimmerman was charged with resisting arrest, violence, and battery of an officer after shoving an undercover alcohol-control agent who was arresting an under-age friend of Zimmerman's at a bar. He avoided conviction by agreeing to participate in a pre-trial diversion program that included anger-management classes. In August, Zimmerman's fiancee at the time, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman reciprocated with his own order on the same grounds, and both orders were granted. The relationship ended. In 2007 he married Shellie Dean, a licensed cosmetologist, and in 2009 the couple rented a townhouse in the Retreat at Twin Lakes. Zimmerman had bounced from job to job for a couple of years, working at a car dealership and a mortgage company. At times, according to testimony from Shellie at a bond hearing for Zimmerman last week, the couple filed for unemployment benefits. Zimmerman enrolled in Seminole State College in 2009, and in December 2011 he was permitted to participate in a school graduation ceremony, despite being a course credit shy of his associate's degree in criminal justice. Zimmerman was completing that course credit when the shooting occurred. On March 22 , nearly a month after the shooting and with the controversy by then swirling nationwide, the school issued a press release saying it was taking the "unusual, but necessary" step of withdrawing Zimmerman's enrollment, citing "the safety of our students on campus as well as for Mr. Zimmerman." A NEIGHBORHOOD IN FEAR By the summer of 2011, Twin Lakes was experiencing a rash of burglaries and break-ins. Previously a family-friendly, first-time homeowner community, it was devastated by the recession that hit the Florida housing market, and transient renters began to occupy some of the 263 town houses in the complex. Vandalism and occasional drug activity were reported, and home values plunged. One resident who bought his home in 2006 for $250,000 said it was worth $80,000 today. At least eight burglaries were reported within Twin Lakes in the 14 months prior to the Trayvon Martin shooting, according to the Sanford Police Department. Yet in a series of interviews, Twin Lakes residents said dozens of reports of attempted break-ins and would-be burglars casing homes had created an atmosphere of growing fear in the neighborhood. In several of the incidents, witnesses identified the suspects to police as young black men. Twin Lakes is about 50 percent white, with an African-American and Hispanic population of about 20 percent each, roughly similar to the surrounding city of Sanford, according to U.S. Census data. One morning in July 2011, a black teenager walked up to Zimmerman's front porch and stole a bicycle, neighbors told Reuters. A police report was taken, though the bicycle was not recovered. But it was the August incursion into the home of Olivia Bertalan that really troubled the neighborhood, particularly Zimmerman. Shellie was home most days, taking online courses towards certification as a registered nurse. On August 3, Bertalan was at home with her infant son while her husband, Michael, was at work. She watched from a downstairs window, she said, as two black men repeatedly rang her doorbell and then entered through a sliding door at the back of the house. She ran upstairs, locked herself inside the boy's bedroom, and called a police dispatcher, whispering frantically. "I said, 'What am I supposed to do? I hear them coming up the stairs!'" she told Reuters. Bertalan tried to coo her crying child into silence and armed herself with a pair of rusty scissors. Police arrived just as the burglars - who had been trying to disconnect the couple's television - fled out a back door. Shellie Zimmerman saw a black male teen running through her backyard and reported it to police. After police left Bertalan, George Zimmerman arrived at the front door in a shirt and tie, she said. He gave her his contact numbers on an index card and invited her to visit his wife if she ever felt unsafe. He returned later and gave her a stronger lock to bolster the sliding door that had been forced open. "He was so mellow and calm, very helpful and very, very sweet," she said last week. "We didn't really know George at first, but after the break-in we talked to him on a daily basis. People were freaked out. It wasn't just George calling police ... we were calling police at least once a week." In September, a group of neighbors including Zimmerman approached the homeowners association with their concerns, she said. Zimmerman was asked to head up a new neighborhood watch. He agreed. "PLEASE CONTACT OUR CAPTAIN" Police had advised Bertalan to get a dog. She and her husband decided to move out instead, and left two days before the shooting. Zimmerman took the advice. "He'd already had a mutt that he walked around the neighborhood every night - man, he loved that dog - but after that home invasion he also got a Rottweiler," said Jorge Rodriguez, a friend and neighbor of the Zimmermans. Around the same time, Zimmerman also gave Rodriguez and his wife, Audria, his contact information, so they could reach him day or night. Rodriguez showed the index card to Reuters. In neat cursive was a list of George and Shellie's home number and cell phones, as well as their emails. Less than two weeks later, another Twin Lakes home was burglarized, police reports show. Two weeks after that, a home under construction was vandalized. The Retreat at Twin Lakes e-newsletter for February 2012 noted: "The Sanford PD has announced an increased patrol within our neighborhood ... during peak crime hours. "If you've been a victim of a crime in the community, after calling police, please contact our captain, George Zimmerman." EMMANUEL BURGESS - SETTING THE STAGE On February 2, 2012, Zimmerman placed a call to Sanford police after spotting a young black man he recognized peering into the windows of a neighbor's empty home, according to several friends and neighbors. "I don't know what he's doing. I don't want to approach him, personally," Zimmerman said in the call, which was recorded. The dispatcher advised him that a patrol car was on the way. By the time police arrived, according to the dispatch report, t he suspect had fled. On February 6, the home of another Twin Lakes resident, Tatiana Demeacis, was burglarized. Two roofers working directly across the street said they saw two African-American men lingering in the yard at the time of the break-in. A new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. One of the roofers called police the next day after spotting one of the suspects among a group of male teenagers, three black and one white, on bicycles. Police found Demeacis's laptop in the backpack of 18-year-old Emmanuel Burgess, police reports show, and charged him with dealing in stolen property. Burgess was the same man Zimmerman had spotted on February 2. Burgess had committed a series of burglaries on the other side of town in 2008 and 2009, pleaded guilty to several, and spent all of 2010 incarcerated in a juvenile facility, his attorney said. He is now in jail on parole violations. Three days after Burgess was arrested, Zimmerman's grandmother was hospitalized for an infection, and the following week his father was also admitted for a heart condition. Zimmerman spent a number of those nights on a hospital room couch. Ten days after his father was hospitalized, Zimmerman noticed another young man in the neighborhood, acting in a way he found familiar, so he made another call to police. "We've had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a real suspicious guy," Zimmerman said, as Trayvon Martin returned home from the store. The last time Zimmerman had called police, to report Burgess, he followed protocol and waited for police to arrive. They were too late, and Burgess got away. This time, Zimmerman was not so patient, and he disregarded police advice against pursuing Martin. "These assholes," he muttered in an aside, "they always get away." After the phone call ended, several minutes passed when the movements of Zimmerman and Martin remain a mystery. Moments later, Martin lay dead with a bullet in his chest. http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/04/26/usa-florida-shooting-zimmerman-idINDEE83P02D20120426

  5. While hiking down along the border this morning, I saw a Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grand River. He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying. Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back. If they didn't get help, they'd surely drown. Being a responsible Texan and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff's Office and Homeland Security. It is now 4 PM, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded. I'm starting to think I wasted two stamps.

  7. Anyone else find that suddenly the Dinar side of DV is boring? Perhaps I have just gone through an overdose of Iraq "news" that doesn't really make a darn bit of difference in what we are waiting for. Perhaps I have just become too bored with the non-dinar stuff and am feeling that boredom when I come to look at the dinar stuff. Then again, maybe I am just finding that my dinar saturation point has been reached. Because I am finding the Dinar news so unworthy, I have spent more time in the past few months checking out the off limits postings. Seriously, this penchant for bashing the American political scene and the lack or respect shown by Americans for the American political process, has caused me to stop even checking what may be an interesting headline. Usually who posted it tells you before hand if it might be something interesting or something along the lines of political bashing. That narrows my possibilities on the site to non bashing posts ... which narrows it quite a bit. We have a new thread now, the music and video scene. And, I will admit that I occasionally go and check out something that seems interesting. But when someone starts putting those up on the forum, they tend to push a lot of the other stuff past whatever limit is established for current input and old stuff and a day at a time we have a flood of music and video and not much else, unless you include the bashing ... it never stops. That leaves, basically, the Dinar news. Usually, though it isn't really anything that notifies us of a galloping RV about to hit, it does have some sort of issue that we can follow through a few days of postings. And some of those postings bring some interesting comments. But recently, there has really been nothing much that really seems of interest. So, I am bored. I find that coming to check the listings is not longer the fun it used to be. I no longer hold out hope that there will be a rich nugget of something worthwhile snuggled down in the midst of all the "stuff" on the site. Where I used to visit several times a day, for hours at a time, and relished the thought of what I might find, now it is a struggle to show up a couple of times for a very few minutes each. I even find myself sort of dreading it but feel that if I don't show up at least twice a day, once early and once late, I might miss something good. So, lets see if anyone else has this feeling of boredom with the site. Even some of the questions and polls and "groups" that seem to be forming, seem to have dried up. What do you think? smee2

  8. After considering the number of articles, reports, or speeches we have heard over the past few years concerning the dinar, I have come to the conclusion that if you don't read the articles and reports or listen to the speeches you are uninformed. If you do read the articles and reports and listen to the speeches you are misinformed. (via Mark Twain)

  9. So there was a fly flying around a barn and found a huge pile of cow poo. He landed on it, and ate, and ate, and ate. Finally when he was full he tried to take off again, but no matter how hard he flapped his wings he couldn't get off the ground. Nearby he seen a shovel, so he waddled over to it and climbed up the handle to the top and flapped his little fly wings and jumped! No matter how hard he tried to fly he kept falling until he hit the ground and SPLAT! No more fly! MORAL: If you are going to fly off the handle make sure you are not full of **** first!

  10. For those of you in this investment that cherish the WORD of GOD and truly believe HIS hand is upon you and your every step...allow me to offer you something to meditate on in prayerful thought.... Proverbs 25:25 "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is GOOD NEWS from a far country." Lord refresh us, refresh our "thirsty souls", refresh our finances with the Revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar, just as your WORD says, it would be like "cold water to a thirsty soul"...refresh us with "GOOD NEWS" from Iraq, in relation to America, a "far country", with the Revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar, so that those of us who receive this word, and know that it is nothing less than a Blessing from YOU, may put a smile on your face, and BLESS others as well as enjoy it ourselves. I thank YOU for this WORD....In YOUR Holy, Precious Name, JESUS CHRIST of NAZERETH, AMEN, and AMEN....

  11. I know it's hard to read, but it's also very informative. BondLady Chat with Scooter (4/25/12) April 25th, 2012 02:30 pm · Posted in CHATS & POSTS [scooter-EG] So [scooter-EG] How can I help today [bondLady] Hi Scooter, and ty so much for coming to our little Corner of the Net !!!! [bondLady] me and some of my team discovered something a few days ago and have been working on it and kind of came to a standstill on it, as to what it could possibly mean to us as investors, and or the CBI, why would this Economic Data show such a huge change… from a deficit … to a surplus…….and i want to thank you so much Sir, for coming to our Corner and helping me and all our members try to make sense of this….. this is what we discovered……. [bondLady] ECONOMIC DATA 4/2/2012 2012 Forecasts GDP – real growth rate 12.6% Budget deficit/GDP 10.0% Current account deficit/GDP 4.5% Net foreign reserves $60B [bondLady] the deficit hardly ever changes [scooter-EG] the sudden changes at the CBI — I know — it comes acrsss very odd doesn’t it [bondLady] yes [scooter-EG] but actually it makes a lot of sense [bondLady] then all of a sudden 18 days later…. [bondLady] ECONOMIC DATA 4/21/2012 2012 Forecasts GDP – real growth rate 11.1% Budget deficit/GDP 10.0% Current account surplus/GDP 9.1% Net foreign reserves $60B [bondLady] deficit of -4.5% to surplus of 9.5% [bondLady] help us out here brotha please [scooter-EG] See what happens in iraq [scooter-EG] in this case [scooter-EG] first [scooter-EG] Iraq’s budget [scooter-EG] When the Iraqis provide a budget or submit [scooter-EG] a budget — they submit two of them at the beginning of the year [scooter-EG] one [scooter-EG] an agreed upon [scooter-EG] and the second [scooter-EG] a proposed [scooter-EG] What they’ve been doing is having the published AGREED upon budget [scooter-EG] sent out to the public [bondLady] ah [scooter-EG] While still maitaining the fidelity of the Transparency [scooter-EG] they sneek the proposed budget on the mof [scooter-EG] website [scooter-EG] they’ve been doing this for the last four years [scooter-EG] so [scooter-EG] what does that mean to us [scooter-EG] in 2010 [scooter-EG] They’ve had a ratio of $2.05 [scooter-EG] in 2011 [scooter-EG] they had a ratio between the two budgets of $1.27 [scooter-EG] and 2012 [scooter-EG] it came in at [scooter-EG] one second let me see [scooter-EG] the spreadsheets are on their site [scooter-EG] it’s a little bit of digging however. [scooter-EG] Here’s some links where I break this out (Sorry Guys Had to Remove LInks)[scooter-EG] that’s 2012 [scooter-EG] when you open it [scooter-EG] what you’ll see at the top is the AGREED upon and PROPOSED budgets [scooter-EG] goto the far right of that [scooter-EG] Those are ratios [scooter-EG] not rates [scooter-EG] i repeat [scooter-EG] not rates [scooter-EG] Here’s why [scooter-EG] They need a way to pay for this RV — and that comes from the primary and Secondary Bond Markets [scooter-EG] We’ll get to that in just a minute [scooter-EG] Now — 1.48 [scooter-EG] What they’ve done is this [scooter-EG] from 2006 up until 2010 [scooter-EG] they’ve had this setup [scooter-EG] as a result — they spend at one level [scooter-EG] but store the excess funds [scooter-EG] and the reason for this is simple [scooter-EG] When the RV/RD — I like Slow Hybrid myself [scooter-EG] when this goes down [scooter-EG] They will [be] require[d] to have those funds and allocate those to the provinces [scooter-EG] back down to the people [scooter-EG] now [scooter-EG] that’s the first item as to why those CBI numbers changed so swiftly [scooter-EG] the second one is bigger [scooter-EG] The “Drainage Funds” [scooter-EG] If you remember [scooter-EG] when Iraq does a budget [scooter-EG] they come out and base the budget on the value of each barrel of oil [scooter-EG] so for example in 2010 [scooter-EG] I believe they budgeted for $62.50 a barrel [scooter-EG] however [scooter-EG] the actual average for that year [scooter-EG] was closer to $78 – $80 [scooter-EG] those funds are Drainage funds [scooter-EG] and held off until the complete budget process goes throught the independent audit and then the final audit with the BSA [scooter-EG] BSA — Board of Supreme Audit [scooter-EG] that process alon can take 18 – 24 months after that calendar year [scooter-EG] as a result [scooter-EG] Iraq has been stockpiling some serious funds [scooter-EG] now [scooter-EG] as to the Debt [scooter-EG] the Paris Club debt — primarily the G20 Credit nations [scooter-EG] forgave 80% of their debt [scooter-EG] but [scooter-EG] big However [scooter-EG] the Arab countries [scooter-EG] DID NOT [scooter-EG] and that debt was equivalent to the sum of the all the debt from the Paris Club members [scooter-EG] I think the total sum was close to $`124 Billion [bondLady] wow [scooter-EG] They recieved some relief [scooter-EG] and I’m not certain what that final number was — but most likely those neighboring countries are sharing some oil wells with the Iraqi’s [scooter-EG] Now [scooter-EG] with that said [scooter-EG] what they are doing right now? [scooter-EG] ohhh [scooter-EG] hold on [scooter-EG] one more item [scooter-EG] actually two more items to remember [scooter-EG] one [scooter-EG] we don’t know what those assets which were frozen are [scooter-EG] I mean the amount [scooter-EG] another item is the funds that were issued to US Treasuries [scooter-EG] for example [scooter-EG] we know there was 89 Billion invested in US treasuries from the DFI [scooter-EG] and during that time of the the DFI [scooter-EG] there was an additional 84 Billion in interest — i have that audit report for those interested [scooter-EG] so here we have Iraq that was showing a massive deficit [scooter-EG] comparitively speaking to GDP [scooter-EG] and on paper it was close to $15 Billion [scooter-EG] and the fact was — they never really had a deficit [scooter-EG] lol [scooter-EG] I laugh at that one every time I see it [scooter-EG] sorry [scooter-EG] anyhow [bondLady] right [scooter-EG] For example [scooter-EG] in 2010 — I believe the drainage funds alone were close to 25 Billion [scooter-EG] just collecting interest in us treasuries [scooter-EG] protected completely worldwide by the US Government [scooter-EG] In fact, there was an article recently that indicated the sum of funds [scooter-EG] including the assets since 1990 was close [scooter-EG] to 816 Billion [scooter-EG] not certain if thats the case [scooter-EG] but it was certainly something to pause and take a closer look [scooter-EG] oh yes [scooter-EG] here’s some other flash files for your review to show 2010 and 2011 [bondLady] ty [scooter-EG] np — just give me thirty seconds [bondLady] np at all take your time page 2 [scooter-EG] ok [scooter-EG] that should provide some data points for reference [bondLady] ty [scooter-EG] those spreadsheets are directly from the Ministry of Finance site [scooter-EG] What you’ll find are the two budgets I spoke of earlier [scooter-EG] so the question comes about now is what happens next [scooter-EG] well — there’s two items that are big ones for me [scooter-EG] one [scooter-EG] those two government banks — Rafadain and Rasheed need to be Devalued to todays level [scooter-EG] once that’s completed — the IMF will raise their capital to the right amounts [scooter-EG] see what happend is this [scooter-EG] back during the Saddam era [scooter-EG] the value of those assets were calculated at the $3.21 rate [scooter-EG] and those assets are still on the Balance sheets at that level [scooter-EG] and it’s completely incorrect [scooter-EG] so for example [scooter-EG] the Rafadain bank shows Assets of 371 Trillion IQD [scooter-EG] when in reality it’s really closer to 40 trillion IQD [scooter-EG] These banks do over 90% of all transactions [scooter-EG] don’t be frightend by this lower number [scooter-EG] this is a good thing [scooter-EG] It’s the primary reason they haven’t progressed farther then they are right now [scooter-EG] Nevertheless, that will be taken care of [scooter-EG] but it is funny that the TBI now has a higher value than the Rasheed bank [scooter-EG] now to the bond market [scooter-EG] If you look at the CR reports of the past from the IMF [scooter-EG] They made it abundantly clear they Iraq must Privatize those SOE’s [scooter-EG] State Owned Enterprises [scooter-EG] approximately 108 of them [scooter-EG] these are the big insurance companies, utility companies, power companies [scooter-EG] those companies are the same companies that will form their BOND market [scooter-EG] and so the question for most is why is that important to my investment [scooter-EG] simple [scooter-EG] the primary bond market provides the liquidity for the government [scooter-EG] and pays for any type of increases in monetary value [scooter-EG] that may or may not occur [scooter-EG] in the future [scooter-EG] when the primary Bond market is built [scooter-EG] then the international players can come in to form the secondary bond market [scooter-EG] those Bond markets are CRITICAL to our scenario [scooter-EG] some of this has been done — but they have some more task to complete [scooter-EG] the other important [scooter-EG] item is the immediate need to form capital in that country

Arabia is running at 45% [scooter-EG] I think Kuwait is similar [scooter-EG] so they need the capital to form and form quickly [scooter-EG] none of this can occur until those BOND markets form [scooter-EG] and that won’t occur until those two government banks are revalued or Devalued [scooter-EG] Ok [scooter-EG] scooter diatribe complete [scooter-EG] how did I do [scooter-EG] sleeping

[bondLady] ok here it is and ty so much [scooter-EG] What article are we talking about [bondLady] ty elizabeth for this article….. CBI confirms the abandonment of an auction sale of foreign currency 25/04/2012 11:21 Baghdad, April 25 (Rn) – The Central Bank of Iraq Wednesday, about his quest for the transfer of an auction sale of foreign currency (the dollar) to a commercial bank government, saying the auction is not within its terms of reference, and criticized in a living the same accusations made against him on the mechanism adopted by the sell the currency. And saw the price of the dollar compared to a rise in local currency during the past few days, which officials attributed to a local banking companies, the central bank to stop sales of hard currency. And picked up local media reports about the widening phenomenon of smuggling hard currency from Iraq to Syria and Iran to the border crossing points unless confirmed by the CBI. The deputy governor of Bank of the appearance of Mohammed, told the Kurdish news agency (Rn) “It is time for an auction sale of currency out of the Iraqi Central Bank, and shall state that a commercial bank, Vmzad sell the currency does not fall within the competence of the Central Bank of Iraq.” [bondLady] He explained that “all banks in the world does not work that way, and we we were in the central bank finance foreign trade and this is not our job, and I will work hard with other government institutions for the transfer of an auction sale of foreign currency to the state commercial bank.” [bondLady] The Deputy Governor of the Bank “Unfortunately the policy of intervention the central bank in the market to maintain the stability of the Iraqi dinar ended in foreign trade financing to the private sector, because of the unity of the Iraqi economy (oil), and the market required graduation dollars under various pretexts legal and illegal, and there are worn out to get the currency including the difficult does not serve the Iraqi economy. ” [bondLady] He continued that “the Central Bank of Iraq lies in its mission to intervene to absorb liquidity, and will deal with the bank which will be an auction sale of currency in the total without going into details,” critic at the same time “the accusations made against the bank on a mechanism to sell the currency.” The mission of the Iraqi Central Bank is to maintain price stability and the implementation of monetary policy, including exchange rate policies and management of reserves of foreign currency and regulate the banking sector, while stressing the Finance Committee of parliamentary support for any efforts presented by the Central Bank of Iraq and lead outturn final to the stability of the exchange market. [bondLady] A member of the Committee Secretary Hadi’s (Rn) that “the real exchange rate and the actual government is the one who sells 1118 dinars per dollar, while the crackdown of the Central Bank to sell the currency prompted the companies to buy dollars from banks at a higher price is due.” Hadi said that “the central bank if the easy procedures for the sale of hard currency, is sure to decrease the exchange rate,” noting that “the transfer of the daily auction of foreign currency to other banks rather than the central bank will reduce one of the obstacles, and then will be the Finance Committee in support of Bank Procedures” . And that “his committee with the tightening of measures to sell the currency, but not this way, the conversion of the amount of thousand dollars to the outside should not include the same procedures for the transfer of $ 100 thousand dollars.” [bondLady] In the opinion of experts in the Iraqi economy to transform the task of selling the hard currency from the central bank to state bank may not resolve the problem once and for all. In this context, sees Majid picture that “it is possible that there will be an auction for the sale of hard currency managed by a private entity separate from the central bank, but the bank takes control of market supply and demand to be considered the only party that sells the dollar [bondLady] He said Suri’s (Rn) that “I have a perception that management of the auction by the Central Bank or any other party will not lead to any change in the current reality, but are beginning to resolve the economic problems.” Noting that “the problem is that Iraq is a country unilaterally economy depends on oil, and even tourists spend money, not an Iraqi hard currency inside Iraq. ” The parliamentary Finance Committee had warned earlier, the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers of trying to dominate the monetary policy of the Central Bank of Iraq, and limit the powers of the province, noting that this was a violation of the constitution and has serious consequences on the national economy. http://translate.google.com/translate?rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ar&tl=en&u=http://www.aknews.com/ar/aknews/2/303639/ page 3 BondLady] tyvm rip it up please [scooter-EG] one second [scooter-EG] still dissecting [bondLady] take your time and ty [bondLady] and i wont ask you what the “coming days ” mean lol [scooter-EG] ok [scooter-EG] everything there sounds correct [scooter-EG] they have themselves in a dilemna right now [scooter-EG] centralized control vs decentralized control [scooter-EG] it’s a growth problem really [scooter-EG] remember — this country is in its embryonic stage of development [bondLady] right [scooter-EG] in the beginning, [scooter-EG] they absolutely required this to be centralized [scooter-EG] and now the natural economic forces are demanding decentralized movement of exchange [scooter-EG] now why is this good [scooter-EG] well, for one [scooter-EG] the banking sector is demanding this ability [scooter-EG] but remember [scooter-EG] the auctions were the biggest tool that Shabs had to control inflation [scooter-EG] decentralization of this power could have a dramatic effect on a country that relies so heavilly upon their oil revenues [scooter-EG] the volatility in the oil market alone could destroy that economy [scooter-EG] so having centralized control of those auctions has been critical to stablize the exchange rate [scooter-EG] if the exchange rate were to float [scooter-EG] could mean complete catastrophe for the Iraqi Economy [scooter-EG] however [scooter-EG] big however [scooter-EG] they might be to the point in the development where decentralization — at least a little bit — is needed [scooter-EG] stopping the auctions is nothing to be afraid or worried — in fact there’s a lot of positives in my mind [scooter-EG] it just means that they might have taken the next step [scooter-EG] Does that make any sensse [scooter-EG] I hope so [bondLady] yes it does [bondLady] and i appreciate your time in all this [scooter-EG] How we doing so far [scooter-EG] No problem — [bondLady] u are fabulous sir [scooter-EG] TY [bondLady] is it ok with u [bondLady] some of our members and scooter fans [scooter-EG] You are equally fabulous and I truly enjoy when you call me [bondLady] have a few questions for u if u don’t mind… [scooter-EG] ok [bondLady] ty so much scooter i am truly humbled [grashopa] [RickeyT] scooter, do you see Iraq surviving the 3 different factions and remaining intact as a country?

  12. After all the comments on this thread about uncs's decision to "give up," I would like to ask uncs a few questions: 1. Your decision to stop this investment for you was because "it" was a scam. How did you come to that decision? What bit of information was the overload point that it would never happen? I'm sure your research made you aware of some fact that was the "oh, no" moment. So what was it? 2. Why do you think that making a profit on a purchase or sell order makes this a scam? In your book is it wrong to make a profit? I purchase canvas, paints, brushes, etc. and sit down and paint a picture that I put on the market to sell. My supplies for a painting average $25. I sell it to a WILLING buyer for $275. I have made a profit of $250. Is this a scam? I paid $1100 for a million dinar. I am a WILLING buyer. After shipping and handling the profit $200 or 300 dollars. I get what I want and they get what they want. I knew it was a speculation when I bought and considered that risk. What makes that a scam? 3. Did you read something or talk to someone who convinced you that this was a bad investment? Did you ask them for their reasons for interfering with your your peace of mind since they did not have a valid piece of evidence that this was a scam? 4. How many gurus did you read and believe? Did you fall for their "hyper hope" when they said it would "RV at $46 dollars on Monday when the banks open"? Is that the fault of the dinar investment? Or is that your fault for believing false gurus? I don't expect an answer. You haven't answered anyone's questions on this thread. Personally, I think you are wise in getting out of this investment. You don't have the patience or personality it takes to profit from this investment of a lifetime. Stick close to Mommy and enjoy the meals.

  16. I usually try not to get political on this site, but this is something that deserves comment. Following is an article about a proposal from this Administration's Department of Labor to ban kids from doing work on family farms. This is an abomination to all who have grown up in our rural and agricultural communities. But it should be a wake up call to even the most urban members of these forums. Kids who have for generations grown up on family farms are possibly the most balanced individuals that can be found in society (IMHO). This is partly due to the value found in work habits, personal responsibility and family begun at an early age. If more people grew up with these same values instead of waiting for someone else (or government) to provide for them, what a better place this would be. http://dailycaller.com/2012/04/25/rural-kids-parents-angry-about-labor-dept-rule-banning-farm-chores/

  17. It's okay to be on the fence, but GOD's WORD shows us that HE loves to BLESS us, including riches. Paul says, GOD desires you to be "prosperous and in good health, even as your soul prospers." Do you pray for "good health"? Then why ask for one without the other? the Key is "your soul prospers"....your soul prospers by reading GOD's WORD, and seeking a relationship with The FATHER, the SON, and the HOLY SPIRIT..."Seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD, and all these things shall be added unto you." Keep GOD the center of your desires for the Iraqi Dinar to revalue, thanking HIM, for the opportunity HE has given us, and selfishness will not enter the equation. It is okay to want wonderful things in life...YOU are a sibling of the KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS. And a Child of ALMIGHTY GOD, maker of all things, including riches....HE wants you to have them and enjoy them...so desire what HE wants for you and pray that way as well....not Lord "if" it be, but "LORD, your WORD says you are my Provider, your WORD says, you "love to surprise me with blessings", your WORD says....pray reminding HIM what HIS WORD says because HE says in HIS WORD, to "bring HIM in remembrance of HIS WORD", not because HE has forgotten, but because HIS WORD "cannot return to HIM void". But it cannot return to HIM at all, if you do not speak it back to HIM. Also, "Command ye the works of my hands"...See HE not only wants to Bless you with GOOD things, abundantly, and 'more than you can ask and dream", but HE also tells you HOW to ask for it, so you won't miss the blessings HE has for you....OH HE is a GOOD DADDY!!!! Do this, and you will get off the fence and into HIS Garden of Blessings which HE so dearly wants to bestow on you, HIS Beloved.....GOD BLESS....

  20. Bottom line is this...........Miskebam knew Okie, from day one, was not basing any of his 'intel' on anything remotely resembling news articles & continued to provide him a platform to do it until the dinar community began to put the pressure on him and call him out on his lies.Okie used the ploy used by so many evil folks, to gain other's trust......that is invoking God's name, claiming to be a 'Christian ' and reeling gullible and trusting souls into his trap. Evidently there were legions of investors out there who hocked and mortgaged all their possessions to buy and obtain dinar ON RESERVE , believing the impending RV, that Okie promised them, was happening any minute. I hope that Okie truly hits his knees and begs God's forgiveness and attempts to right all those he wronged. Anything less than that is going to assure Okie a special place in hell reserved for those who defraud others at Almighty God's expense.

  25. As I recall UNCS was part of a group holding a bunch of dinar and threatened a year ago to sell if it didnt happen soon. Since he didn't follow through then, chances are he's not selling now either, just venting. Im guessing he will keep a nice stash of dinar(just in case) and probably has a little dong.

  27. I find a slight amount of amusement from these posts and the peoples response to them over the years. People used to BEG people not to give up and sell. They used to try to encourage the person to death and attempt to convince them that their personal decision to sell was wrong. Now-days, people don't really try to talk people down off that bridge.... They just hollar.... JUMP, and stop holding up traffic. ha ha Its like fashion, it goes through phases and wide ties did come back around like everyone said they would. I still find amusement in this investment even though it is the most frustrating and discouraging emotional investment in history. Removing emotion is easy to talk about but good luck doing it when hard earned money is involved. I have seen sooooooo many people threaten to sell and actually sell via this forum over the years. Just water under the bridge... IMO.

  30. First let me this. I am grateful for the positive posting's that I have received and for the request for friends. let us all try to remember why we are here and that is in the final analysis we are to help all we can. With that purpose in heart success will happen. Now onward, This journey has been an emotional one and for that reason I sought for real information that would help me in my decisions to be involved. Today I am so alarmed about Great Britian announcing their country's economic's is in recession because of 2 consecutive quarters of negative results. I am not shocked to hear this. Negative information sometimes is a blessing because it causes those in the circle to put their shoulder to the wheel so to speak. It is time to get to the task at hand. I have already stated that in my opinion the earliest I see any form of RV is during the month of Oct. I have placed phones calls to some government people with no response so far. China is getting more and more involved each day and now they are the leader of the pack. US is sitting on the bench waiting to see who is getting into the game. they are using all forms of Artificial intelligence you can think of to track actions. Another negative is Europe has announced again it is deep crisis. So the short term fix is now running low. Look for the US to put pressure on those countries to get their monetary act together before any RV takes place. US wants the monetary RV to be a permanant fix to allow programs to run without limitations. My big question is who is going to bail out those countries this time. US, IMF or the monetary RV's of several countries. You may find this coming to an end in early fall to the first few days of Nov 2012. All of my resources in terms of international intelligence that runs from South America to Asia are saying the same thing. When the Chap 7 is completely satisfied and all sanctions are lifted and then the blessing coming from the United Nations, that is the first sign of any RV of many currencies. Look for the announcement that the deposits are on the rise in the big four banks here. Study their balance sheets like I have. this is paramont. Now many know that a famous dinar seller is back from overseas and setting up shop again. My question is why? I do know like all of you someone is going to make money. Again from one of my sources inside, the topic of Dinar has been downgraded on the morning topic list for the last 3 months. As a matter of fact it is last. this is the fact. last text message said,{things can change rapidly with these people} I am on not high alert, however my people are. So this trip continues with no end in sight. The big question is will I sell my holdings after the anouncement from the dinar sellers offer to buy? my answer is flat out NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO We have some time to study without emotion for that is the key to discernment. best regards to all and may you blessed in your rightous endeavors..

All coastlines are closed except for LA. But, is it really the oil companies figuratively flipping the bird at the EPA & the current Administration?

  37. 4 - 26 - 2012 Iraqi economists network Whirlwind media have raised attempting to enter the Prime Minister's Office in details the work and functions of the Central Bank to increase speculation on dinar. And which contributed to heightened speculation is scientifically unjustified remarks and one economist close to statistically Prime Minister about the need for foreign exchange reserves deductible, regardless of whether or not the possibilities of constitutional, legal and economic angles. Such statements are considered in content, timing and outgoing references close to encourage speculators to bet on the deterioration of the exchange rate and lead them to more speculation, and this regardless of the role of States bordering Iraq to sell dinar to buy the dollar within the Iraqi market. That a Central Bank to his current professional financial stability policy for Iraq by reducing essential for external debt saddled the Iraqi economy in the deposed regime, which the Central Bank has been able, through coordination with the Ministry of finance, external debt reduction to Iraq from about 220% in 2006 to what is estimated at about 37% only 2011 is one of the great achievements that monetary policy through professional management in the Central Bank. The success of the policy of the Bank in currency stability through the stabilization of the exchange rate and maintain the transparent management of foreign currency reserve and sent confidence in cash position and achieve an acceptable degree of economic stability after years of hyperinflation which crush capacity purchasing power of Iraqis in previous years did not conform and attempts and tireless weaken the role of Central Bank monetary policy. And animate as practised in economies economic nearly 20 countries under my previous international advisers in United Nations development planning that such attitudes aimed at weakening the role of the Central Bank to become catalysts for our national currency speculators to buy dollars and sell dinar, and is the opposite of what we want our esteemed Prime Minister at this critical stage. Secondly, it must be noted here within this context that the reserve estimates as Iraqi IMF report issued in March 2011 were not exceeding 7.5 months of imports of goods and services 2011. And expectations of the report of the International Monetary Fund reserve ratio down to the number of months of import to 6.9 month in 2012. .......... I thank fellow Iraqi economists network Dr. Walid khaddouri and Dr. Ali Mirza for their remarks on the origin of this paper value sent to colleagues in the network of economists Iraqis on 14 April 2012. IMF – Second Review Under the Stand-By Arrangement, Request for Waiver of Applicability, Extension of the Arrangement, and Rephasing of Access, March 4, 2011, Table 10, p.25 The same source above, Table 7, p.22 ........ Despite the prospect of high volume up more than the expectations of the International Monetary Fund in its report referred, but such figures do not indicate the magnitude of the reserve in comparison with the size of the economy depends on oil import mainly for hard currency, it is potential cyclical economy threatened by decreases in oil prices as well as problems and threats to close the Strait of Hormuz if things are more strained between neighboring Iran and the United States. Brent prices have fallen over the past few weeks from approximately 128 dollars per barrel to about $ 120,000, which requires caution, it can lead to worsening of the financial and economic crisis the euro zone expectations for international speculators bearish oil markets could lead to noticeable decline other prices on the international level. As is known, the hard currency Iraq outcome is a function of export prices and quantities, and therefore the budgets of the State and the stability of the Iraqi dinar will require a prudent balance between economic policy imperatives of expansion in investment spending and stimulate production and demand for productive employment and maintaining price stability (dinar). It must be noted here that the frequent allusions to the large reserve to Iraq ill-conceived references from some economists to quantify as Hafidh wrote nearly two months ago in his Institute magazine "dialogue" and entitled "what about backup ”? In addition to Mr. Abdul Hussein Al-Anbuge article a few days ago on the subject has become the political arm impact on trends in the country's Central Bank to weaken the role of the Iraqi economy requires higher reserve ratio to imports to 15 months as a minimum. Thirdly, the colleague Dr. Ali Mirza in written intervention within the Iraqi economists network to higher probability of a "genuine surplus accrued" to the Ministry of finance as a result of not spending allocated prior years even though budgets had planned deficit. This actual state budget surplus (no programmer) was known and anticipated at this stage where oil revenues and prices much higher than assumed by the financial budget for 2011 has already Dr Hussain Shahristani and referred in a statement to the marked increase in oil prices over the past year, the Iraqi source. There is no doubt that the history of fluctuations in world oil prices should become a catalyst for caution, what may be a fiscal deficit in the year or another year of surplus may turn to reverse. Thus, a surplus of Mali actual 2011 budget (not projected), webaghalb event also accumulated a surplus of Mali from previous years ' budgets should limit calls from some ill-advised use of Central Bank reserves, but we demand of national economy Affairs officials to improve the management and professional and efficient public sector spending and investment and solve basic constraints that bound breakthrough industrial and agricultural activities with significant impact on the operation of the unemployed. It must be noted here, that the Bank's success ......... Have agreed with me on this for Dr. Ali Mirza when our cured for this command. In a television debate a few days before Iraqi channel, one of the gentlemen of Deputies was excited to invest European real estate reserve owing to higher dividends over the past 20 years, which reflect a lack of knowledge of the backup job. The Central Bank reserves primary function is to maintain exchange rate stability and financing imports when financial crises, which require investment of up to tovirakber degree of liquidity of the economy in crisis, solutions and this should be left to the Central Bank and specialized departments as a result of long experience in this area. ......... Inflation reduction Central as measured by the index of consumer prices from 27% in 2004 to around 5.5% in 2011 and the relative stability of the dinar are the few successes for economic policy in Iraq after 2003, which were mostly inclined to many flop due to poor financial management agencies, planning and follow-up of implementation of programmes and lack of professional capacity required. Therefore, if there is a significant surplus in the General State budget, actual, and the Central Bank of the leading legal and constitutional background to achieve an acceptable degree of price stability (dinar), we need to ask here: (1) does the influential advisers advised gentlemen Mr. Prime scientifically substantiated advice about the necessity and possibility of figures and the results of the use of this reserve, particularly in the light of the cumulative surplus in the General State budget and approved by the House? (2) whether these admonitions, a weak scientific and statistical evidence, for the benefit of the national economy and to Mr. Prime or creator of the institutional and economic problems without objective justification?! (3) to Iraqi dinar exchange rate has fallen against the dollar after the crisis emerged to the surface and prompted speculators to buy the dollar?

(6) you forgot to use the ' gentlemen on reserve by the Government — despite a surplus in its budget of last year — involving such policies under the former regime on society of inflation spiral crush Central and poor classes incomes? You forgot the high index of consumer prices (b 235% p.a. on prices ............ Figure calculated from the data consumer price indexes as published by the CSO website. See http://www.cosit.gov.iq Same ibid .............. Fixed to 1993) from 6.3 in 1990 to 2672.9 in 1995 when state money were printed without controls and Mall of Hussein Kamel (ignorance in Economic Affairs) create a bridge in Baghdad floors "with 2 tons of paper" what is common and rolling?

Wouldn't it be tariff activation code provided for protection for manufacturers of Iraq and its farmers and stimulating productive activity, which will create many opportunities of productive jobs for the unemployed? Wouldn't it be running expanding industry and agriculture as a result of the required protection of the most important tools for combating poverty and achieving social and political stability in Iraq? Therefore, this calls for monetary policy attenuation and weaken its credibility, an ancient Foundation and high transparency through the confidence gained in the home as well as dealers dealers and international institutions abroad, leading to one of the few successes in comparison with the rest of the Iraqi economic management?

  38. If, as Aristotle said, "the law is reason free from passion", meaning that law is objective, based on logic, rather than driven by desires and emotions. Then, how is it that decisions usually split down party lines? It flies in the face of logic, that any of these Justices wouldn't think Arizona has the right to protect it's borders, when we have a President and Federal government not doing their job to protect the borders of this sovereign country. I would expect a unanimous decision or at least a majority, making the logical decision, by allowing Arizona to do what it has to do, to protect it's state and thereby, our country from illegal invasion and possible terrorist attack.

  39. Smee i to have seen a drastic change in the last two years especially in the way news is brought, the kinds of posts coming in to read and also the way that Adam approaches the chats with us. Not being critical of him but seems like he does his chats in a different hurried mindset than he used to. One thing i noticed is he was more upbeat in times past but still i respect him and i guess i has a lot on his plate with the business he is running. It is a wonderful thing that he does spend the time to address a chat for us and i give thanks for that. I have also noticed that the movement of members now would rather read, particpate in posts that sometimes skirts the rim of rude, sometimes dirty than a post of something good. The trend has moved from what it used to be and the interest of readers has changed. For example last week i tried to start a post of natural remedies for helping all of us and incouraged everyone to reply with a remedie, cure for health issues that all could benefit from and got very little participation and the ones that did reply were good ones and i thank you for that. It drawed over a 1000 views but for some reason people would not offer a reply of anything they knew of or their grandmother told them and it just faded on off into the dark but yet one other post of anything from jokes to dirty stuff can run forever. I am not complaining about this i am making a comparsion to how what readers want these days. I just wished the natural cure post had kept going because a lot of people would have benefited from it.

  42. Sorry you wasted your money on the stamps. A phone call was made and both were rescued by helicopter and flown to Orlando and Disney World. They were checked in at the hotel and are now resting by the pool. Their families were paid reparation for the delayed rescue and are being flown to Orlando tomorrow to meet them. Paid in full by the U.S. government. Our money at work.

  44. Canada and most every other country as well. There was no sarcasm in my response, I've spent an enormous amount of time and money on the things that are in our VIP and OSI section. You're not an OSI member so you wouldn't know - it's a wise decision to refrain from commenting on things that you know nothing of. FYI all VIP members, one of ours put together a terrific "Cheat Sheet" that will help everyone immensely: http://dinarvets.com...si-cheat-sheet/

  45. Amen...it is hard for me to pray for the RV, I am always afraid I am wanting it for selfish reasons and to an extent I am but I also plan to be a help in this world....so I stay on the fence on whether it's okay to pray for it..

  48. I would rather take a chance on Romney than give Obama another chance at flying around in OUR planes spending OUR tax money giving his family fantasy vacations fit for a King. I don't believe a vote for Romney is a vote for Obama. A vote for Romney is a vote AGAINST Obama. All I care about at this moment is getting that POS out of the White House. I'll take my chances with Romney. He may continue on the PTB course, but not at the pace Obama is on. Maybe, by then, the rest of the American people will have awakened to what is really going on.
