    Catching Wild Pigs A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government. In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?' The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are use to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get use to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get use to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in The last side. The pigs, who are use to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity. The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America . The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc.. While we continually lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time. One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free lunch! Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have" Thomas Jefferson

    [bondLady] malikis popularity with the people has increased now [bondLady] it was 77% [bondLady] now its 85% [campdav] wow [campdav] Thats huge [bondLady] i'm tellin you if they don't pass the PM law limiting the terms he will run again and win [bondLady] and it'll be a majority government this time [bondLady] a chance for him to truly excel in rebuilding iraq and passing much needed laws [bondLady] what should have happened this term but the stupid power sharing doomed it to fail and keep them constantly fighting [DogzNova] but can it work long term.. If they can't share [bondLady] yes [bondLady] a pm has to be able to choose their own gov [bondLady] if they can't you saw what this term did [bondLady] absolutly nothing [bondLady] or very little [bondLady] so busy fighting over power they won't see the peoples needs [bondLady] just like the infrastructure law [bondLady] which would do so much for the people and give over 1 millon jobs [bondLady] make people feel worthwhile again give them pride in bringing home a paycheck to support their homes and familys [bondLady] building 1000's of much needed schools to get the young people in instead of joining terrorist groups [bondLady] educate the people away from religious cleric fanatics [bondLady] give them a future [bondLady] but the power sharing now stopped that as they used it for a bargaining chip [bondLady] pass the amnesty law in its current form and free the majority of terrorist sentenced or waiting to be sentanced [bondLady] or you won't get to have the infrastructure law and help the people [bondLady] its such bs [bondLady] and even in a majority gov they still have parl and fed gov to ride shot gun over it all so its still power sharing but just giving the rightful right of the one who won PM to set his own gov [bondLady] this is true democracy [bondLady] not the farce of power sharing [bondLady] in a fairy tale world far far away from the middle east [bondLady] then a power share would work [DogzNova] oh.. I see... It's like when our pres comes in.. he brings his own peeps in.. Sure I understand [bondLady] or maybe 50 yrs down the road when all these old school one's have long died [bondLady] then maybe [bondLady] but now no way [campdav] BondLady Like you say u have been following all this for a long time and the facts are the facts, in a sea of confusion you have diligently sifted the facts and while all are out there fighting Maliki they struggle how he could be so....................... and still be in there [bondLady] i'll come out and say this one thing [bondLady] i understand campy [bondLady] and it because others don't trully understand they think what they do [campdav] And BTW how they could call allawi a hero blows my mind [bondLady] all this fighting your seeing in bagdad and the kurds go through [bondLady] the fighting there doing over whos army should be guarding iraq [bondLady] well there's only one iraq [bondLady] and the kurds are in iraq [bondLady] the kurd areas the kurds want to be guardians of [bondLady] because what saddam did to them and others on down the line through history [bondLady] the kurds have seen their share of slavery [bondLady] and others trying to basically take them out completly [bondLady] this is not even what maliki is trying to do here [bondLady] when the erbril agreements were set [bondLady] the kurds had several demands they wanted met [bondLady] the hcl and article 140 [bondLady] also making kurd language be put on the currency [bondLady] also iraq to acknowledge all saddam did to them in basically trying to make them extinct [bondLady] annihilate them [bondLady] they wanted to be major players in iraq [bondLady] and for the gov to recognize them [bondLady] and the gov did this [bondLady] and the gov passed the laws to have kurd language put on the money [bondLady] when that'll be released we dont know [bondLady] which brings us to the hcl and article 140 [bondLady] if these two things alone were so easy to do they would have been settled years ago [bondLady] but they are not [bondLady] these two things alone have been a thorn in the sides of all of iraq for years and years [bondLady] hcl is being worked on, its no easy task when your dealing with a country whos lust for greed and power drives them [bondLady] their so afraid someone else is going to get a cent more than the other [bondLady] the last part of the hcl [bondLady] the thorny part is the profit sharing [bondLady] who gets what ..where...and how much [bondLady] thats the point of contention they must do to appease all of them, thats what their working on, the rest is already in place [bondLady] now this brings us to article 140 [bondLady] the conflicts going on between maliki and barzani [bondLady] barzani demandeed article 140 be done [bondLady] thats what a lot of their fighting is about now [bondLady] over disputed areas of article 140 of the constitution [bondLady] for this to happen [bondLady] they all can't be winners [bondLady] theres going to be losers too [bondLady] some will have to give up some of these areas so they can go to there rightful owners [bondLady] and the iraqi army should be the only army to guard all of iraq, this is in the constitution [bondLady] also in the constitution is the kurds and because of what saddam did to them they are allowed there own protection [bondLady] the pershmerga army [bondLady] a kurd army [bondLady] but the bottom line here [bondLady] is the kurds are in iraq [bondLady] and iraq is their country [bondLady] kurdistan is a province WITHIN iraq [bondLady] not outside of it [bondLady] so theres conflicts on settling this part of article 140 [bondLady] they fight to solve their problems its the middle eastern way [bondLady] and if you want to understand iraq and iraqi culture and iraq politics then you have to get out of your western thinking to do it [bondLady] otherwise you will never understand and the opinons which you form won't be right [bondLady] because your looking out of the eyes of a whole seperate culture [bondLady] no matter how right you think you are when you read iraq news [bondLady] if your reading it as you would american newspapers then your gonna be wrong on your interpretation of them [bondLady] i have through my work skills as a profiler [bondLady] learned and studied each of the major players in iraq politics [bondLady] thats how i know whats right from wrong and what they mean and say [bondLady] i've basically gotten into their heads and its a crappy place to be but i had to do it to be able to understand the mind set of this culture of people [bondLady] and until you can basically do the same thing ...your gonna be stuck in your way of thinking and not see things the way iraqis do [bondLady] so they will fight this crap out [bondLady] its what they do [bondLady] its how they settle their issues [bondLady] it does cost bloodshed all the time [bondLady] its what they do [bondLady] they thrive on bartering [bondLady] and crisis [bondLady] its how they settle things [bondLady] and they eventually will [bondLady] but on iraqs sundial not your timex [bondLady] thank you Note: Below you will find the articles with links for this chat Baghdad and Erbil: a mechanism

    Wow! ... I had no idea that my post, which came to me as a piece of humour and was posted as that, would cause such a stir. And so much negative reaction. I have never had this many negatives in all my time here. I guess I have "arrived" eh? Well, to those I offended, it was not meant to offend. To those who gave me a negative vote, I can't do much but repeat that I didn't mean to offend. Considering all the anti-Muslim stuff I see here all the time, I did not think this was so far off what seems to be acceptable. Guess I'll have to stop and ask directions next time ... if there is a next time. smee2

    With all do respect this country was founded on Jewdao(spelling) Christan beliefs. And not Muslim, Weather you like it or not we are a Christan based country, That is tolorent of other beliefs because the first to immigrates where fleeing religious persecution. But we still are a Christan based country. If other people that come here don't understand that then they can stay where they are. Do you really believe that Saudi Arabia is as tolerant of Christians as as we are of Muslims? I can tell you they are not. Come on over to the sand box where I am at this time and I will be glad to show you Muslim tolerances to Christians

    I'm with you. I think he's too emotional for this investment. He does have diehard fans, so what. Does that mean he knows what he's talking about. Nooooo. With a translator even. I think he starts to get and gets down. Then he flips on one of Breightling shows, and gets all warm and fuzzy again. My two coins on Kap. Doesn't mean he's a bad guy, but when it comes to this, or any other investment, I depend on myself.

    Iraq’s Defense Ministry removes 6 Kurdish intelligence officers The Iraqi Ministry of Defense has ordered to remove six Kurdish military intelligence officers from 12th Division of Iraqi Army at the guide of Dijla Operations Command. “The order has been made by the Military Intelligence Directorate of Ministry of Defense at the guide of Dijla Operations Command to transfer several Kurdish intelligence officers from 12th to 6th Division of Iraqi Army,” a source from Intelligence of Iraqi Army and familiar with the order told PUKmedia. The 12th Division of Iraqi Army has gone under the authority of Dijla Operations Command formed by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to securely control the disputed territories. “There are others have been swapped within the Brigades of 12th Division,” the source added. “The only reason behind the decision is that those officers are Kurdish,” the source remarked.

    Smee Quote: "Considering all the anti-Muslim stuff I see here all the time, I did not think this was so far off what seems to be acceptable". Smee don't be upset... if you are on the "Christmas" screen... the +'s are red... you got 12 +'s. See... it was "acceptable"... I didn't agree with it Smee, but I didn't neg you, what would be the point? With clever writings like this one, there will be those who will still believe the big bad "Muslim Boogie Man" is coming to get them.

    Since this is so true, I say we can fix the problem, Make them so unhappy here that they want to go back, since they want Sharia law let it apply only to them, the Muslims. Register everyone of them and apply Sharia law to every thing they do in full force, lets see how happy they will be here in the good old USA, while we still live under our constitution and enjoy our freedom. Even better, since Obama loves to tax so much let them pay about 80% tax rate, to help pay for the wars they started on 9/11!!!

    Okay, on a serious note, Sharia Law is a ruse. Do you really think the Judaic Law system would allow such a thing? Our court system has already passed the Noahide Laws. They are a separate set of laws that the goyim must follow because we are not really human in their eyes.

    Many of you need to educate yourselves on taxes: "... the Republicans will end up blaming Obama for the policies they pushed in the Bush years, and the recession that began on a Republican president’s watch, and a continuation of tax cuts that they supported. They’ll have to. Because if they took all that off the debt clock, there wouldn’t be much debt there to blame him for at all. ... There is no single policy we have passed that has added as much to the debt, or that is projected to add as much to the debt in the future, as the Bush tax cuts, which Republicans passed in 2001 and 2003 and Obama and the Republicans extended in 2010. To my knowledge, all elected Republicans want to make the Bush tax cuts permanent. Democrats, by and large, want to end them for income over $250,000. To be clear, Klein is referring to every dime of "the Bush tax cuts," which at this point really means "the federal income tax system we've had in place for nine years," from the highest to lowest taxable incomes. Solely based on eyeballing the graph (it really isn't worth digging further), the CBPP claims that the tax cuts passed in 2001 and 2003 are responsible for about 20%, or over $2.2 trillion, of the current $11.2 trillion of "debt held by the public."..."

    Kaperoni – tropes, idioms and just plain misguided I was jumping around today from site to site reading some posts. At times I found it odd that I was reading what appeared to be Kaperoni chats, or at least partial chats. These were, I guess, supposed to be current posts from me. When in fact, some of them were months old and now either just surfacing or being recycled to draw attention to their sites. Is that what this investment has come to? It’s bad enough to have recycled Iraq articles, but we must now recycle older dinar posts? Well, personally I think most readers/investors know where to find me to get current information and to get my latest comments or chats. Like any information, go to the source (******) rather than hope what you read on another site is the latest or most current. I also found some of these posts misleading. It is apparent now many sites edit posts. Taking “sounds bites” of sorts to draw attention and to catch the "eye" of the reader. For instance, on another site today I saw this post…."Maliki has a “weak dinar” policy but failed to include the facts supporting this statement where time and time again the GOI (Maliki) has stopped the monetary policies of the CBI which included Anbuge’s (Maliki’s own economist) own words from Aug. 25, 2011, that “current conditions” not appropriate, but that “ten years at a minimum” would be required before the economy was ready.” On another site someone took a reply from one of our ******** forum threads posting it for all to read as if it's something new. When in fact, it's what we have stated for months. I guess the old saying people will read what they want to read and people will listen to what they want to listen to holds true in this investment. My sole goal from day one was to discover the facts however they turn and present them for all investors. Those who listen to rumors, fake stories, and just made up views will continue to be lead down the wrong path, hoping and praying for large rates and overnight revaluations. That simply is not what is going to happen in Iraq. These same individuals who follow these rumor gurus and are fooled to believe in 3+ rates, are the very same that overlook factual statements from reports such as the Investment Guide to Iraq - “the dinar will rise as oil output increases” or the SIGIR report when talking about the CBI – “the reform would have made the dinar’s value slightly less than $1” or numerous articles that say.. “raise the value of the dinar against the dollar gradually down to the day to start replacement of currency.” Will there be a raise in value of the dinar? I totally believe there will be or I would not spend the time researching and presenting information that I do. Do I think it will happen soon? Yes, I think Iraq must change the value of the dinar soon or risk economic and monetary uncertainty. Do I believe it will some day be worth more than $3 to 1 dinar? Yes, but not overnight. In my view, I believe the dinar will rise via a float over time. The time it would take to reach a value of 1 to $1 is subjective. Some say a few months, others say 6 months or more. The other possible scenario still on the table is the “staging rate” at or about .86 - .90. We know this because there was heavy discussion in numerous articles throughout Iraq during 2012. Both of these are viable and realistic based on the conditions in Iraq. There will always be sites that will say what you want to hear. There will always be sites that will feed your yearning for overnight financial freedom. That is not what I am about. Kap ********MOD NOTICE********** It is a violation of this forum's rules to post other dinar sites names and/or links.

    they were just giving their testimony as to what they saw ,, those making the video were the ones trying to prove it was a govt inside job . theres lots of these videos all coming to their conclusions with different circumstances .. if every conspiracy theorist had the same accounts then people may of looked at it more .. any way all the witnesses they used to debunk this all described the 757 as it was headed towards the pentigon ,, they must keep in mind what was the actual impact target by those piloting that 757 .. they act like where it hit was where they intended it to hit .. how does anyone know that for example .......>>> they may of been trying to hit more in the center of the pentigon and were trying to pull up the entire time ,, but missed their mark and ended up a little short .. all they would of needed was global positining of their target and used the 757 gps computer to fly it right into the pentagon .. they could of told the craft this was the touchdown elevation and this was a landing strip and put it on auto pilot for landing right there .. people assume they flew this plane manually into the pentagon ..and into the trade center .. all they had to do was get gps .. which can be done through cell phones .. this all could of taken place during planning stages of attack ..they were here for 2 years planning 911 .. they didnt just come to america ,, board a plane and drive it into their targets i know we all just saw pictures of what rockets do in isreal latly on tv . they go right through concrete leaving holes about the size of the missles .. .. the hole on the pentagon 20 feet in diameter .. must of been a huge missle ,, about the size of a 757 .. man that would be like a intercontinental ballistic missle well did they find any pieces of a missle ? if they would of had to find pieces of a plane.. they would of had to find pieces of a missle .. right ? all that jet feul caused a huge explosion .. that blew the walls out .. the foundation would of been destroyed with a missle it wouldnt of gone around walls like it did ..
