    I've been wanting to make this post for some time, but knew how brutal some of you can be in this section!! I let you know what I've been hearing over the years about the dinar from people who are living in the area and have connections to the financial aspects in ME. First, I am not a guru, nor am I pretending to be one. I am no financial expert, other then I am good at losing money! Just wanted to give you some info from those I talk with. I invested over 3 years ago. As some of you know, I am a doc working in Thailand. Back then, I worked at a pretty famous resort that caters to a lot of wealthy folks. during my time there I got to meet those who "might be in the know" or, at least, shed some hope on this investment. Back then, it was "hahahahha! the dinar? My friends are wallpapering a room with it..." or "The dinar? which one? No, dont know anything about it. I heard its completely worthless.." Needless to say, I wasnt too hopeful (and yet, I still bought more! Like I said, I am very good at losing money!). recently, however, the reactions to my inquiry has been, "Oh, it MIGHT change.." or "yes, I bought some myself.." My patients are those who are high-up bankers, ministers, advisors to the various royal families in the area and even member of the royal family themselves (a couple of princes, etc). so, the point of my post is this: seems the climate is changing. Seems that SOMETHING is in the air for change. not saying an RV, but their attitude has changed from the conversations I have had with these folks years ago (Yes, I ask ALL my ME patients about the dinar. Hey, I aint proud!). If I hear something firsthand, you can bet I will let all you fine folks know. In fact, I will email a banker in saudi today to see if there is anything worth reporting. I hope this gives a few folks a little hope that something MIGHT happen. dunno, just saying...Cheers

    The problem isn't what people say and think this board and all over America. The problem is in the Washington! Contention is constant with Obama with his fundamental transformation BS. It's up to them to start a war. No one wants to fight here in our country but when you have a tyrannical, corrupt government such as this that is constantly taking liberties and bypassing the constitution, there is going to be trouble. That is not un-American my friend that is patriotic!!

    Also, do you not find it fairly pompous to presume that unless someone lives life like you do, thinks like you do and acts like you do that they obviously have to have a miserable life..... Are you so arrogant as to believe that you've figured out the only way???? That's what drives me nuts about the modern liberal.... You all think you know the best way for the rest of us to live our lives and then you try to legislate those ideas.... Look at Bloomberg as a prime example..... You know what a conservative wants??? To be left alone to make his/her way in life with little to no government infringement... If I fail, I don't want you to bail me out of my poor choices. I will learn from my mistakes, strap on my boots, tighten my belt and try again!!!! What does a liberal want.... To dictate how I live, what I eat, where I shat, where and how I work and so on and so on...... Just leave me the heck alone!!!! Follow the constitution, after all that's the foundation of it any way.....FREEDOM!!!! Freedom to do as I see fit for me and my family!

    11 YR OLD SHOOTS ILLEGALS thanks FOX NEWS for reporting it. BUTTE , MONTANA Shotgun preteen vs. Illegal alien Home Invaders...Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11-year-old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home. It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana an...d Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion since she was nine.Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12-gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun. Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee-crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the ...street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive. It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0'Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news........? An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself......against two murderous, illegal immigrants.......and she wins. She is still alive. Now THAT is Gun Control!Thought for the day.... Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist.'I like this kind of e-mail! American citizens defending themselves and their homes. BEING A TRUE AMERICAN, I THINK YOU'LL PASS THIS ON!

    obama and the usual democrats have always created an unfriendly business enviroment in our country ,, their regulations are destroying our economy .. .. he just plain and simple doesnt belong in that position .. hes not qualified and the way it looks hes not interested in learning . he just keeps pushing forward with dumb ideas it didnt start with him .. he didnt educate himself .. 35 years ago when someone needed money they could just go paint a bar ,, or roof a house .. just do odd jobs .. but regulations prohibit this now .. the free enterprise system we enjoyed in the united states has become controlled enterprise .. insurance regulations are killing america .. whats his solution .. mandatory health care to business people . that alone will stop all growth in our economy .. theres 25 million permanently laid off workers .. he cannot fix that he doesnt know how now we got 4 more years of him .. the poor will suffer the most .. the democrats are like a chained up dog .. happy as long as ya give them food ... they dont mind the chains .. its totally un american

Said economic analyst Abdul Sattar al-Hashemi, that central bank's decision to impose fines on banks that violate the Community Legal regarding the sale and purchase of foreign currency and converted to the outside limit of the money laundering operations. Hashemi said (of the Agency news): Some local banks are deliberately not to apply laws and banking systems work What led recently to the emergence of cases of money laundering in the operations of foreign exchange for money. and pointed out: central bank's decision to impose fines on banks that violate laws regarding the sale and purchase of foreign currency and converted to the outside will prevent the occurrence of money laundering or the like in the country. was the Iraqi Central Bank may face a financial penalty for United Bank for Investment for not retaining documents that disclose the nature of the activities practiced by the customers who provide funding requests amounts via central bank auction. central bank held daily sessions of currency auction except on Fridays and public holidays, and involved a group of Iraqi banks, within which the sale and purchase of foreign currency, and the central bank process currency converter sold abroad, for some companies and citizens for a commission certain. and the CBI group of specialized committees to combating money laundering, money, crime and financing of terrorism, and the anti-money laundering 2004 Iraqi situation due process of regulatory institutions, especially banking. http://www.ikhnews.c...n=view&id=74697 [bondLady] so they do work 6 days a week unless holidays, legal ones which we already knew they had said saturday auctions [bondLady] but its like a matter of fact now they needed to make it more like international banking hours and days, good stuff [bondLady] it just goes to show everyone...we've stayed our course we got off that rumor roller coaster ride, and stuck with what we know and can see for ourselves and we've been right about everything , its the truth [bondLady] the ones who follow us daily know what i've said to look for and the way things would play out and they are doing just that and its awesome to see comfirmations of the things we talked about like the basket of laws i said would have to happen to support the budget and to be able to do the budget, hcl and article 140 [DogzNova] i'm suprised they are going to do article 140 and HCL at this low rate [bondLady] infrastructure law which we haven't heard a thing on lately which leads me to believe they have agreed per it but they want amnesty law as a barter for it and their about to get that so i feel infrastructure law is right there with that too [DogzNova] but won't you be surprised of both are put into place with this low rate [bondLady] yes it can't last too much longer if not before and the mandate expires also and they do have bills to pay as well [bondLady] 3 years ago we talked about artice 140 when they said they just did not have the money to pay for it they didn't have enough money in circulation to cover it and i said then they would need to change the rate and then they would [bondLady] but it makes sense to do it with a new rate but we don't know what they are going to do also this money wouldn't be in paper either it would be cards [bondLady] and doing the hcl and article 140 this brings in big time investors and if indeed the infrastructure law is about to go also that brings the world in to rebuild iraq and allows things to be done over time through credit and they need that, this will trigger the whole world into coming in to invest in Iraq hcl is the party and the articles i posted 2 days ago says the hcl is ready for its first reading Attorney Shara reveals tireless quest to develop oil and gas law on the agenda of the parliament after the ratification of the general budget Ali Salman - 02.12.2013 - 10:21 AM Revealed to the Commission on oil and energy in the House of Representatives that he hoped to be read oil and gas law first reading after the completion of the approval of the general budget.

    You want this to be about Obama but is not the government has been nibbling at taking our rights and freedoms for awhile now. It is Washington DC that is the problem not We The People It is Washington DC who Refuses to Govern by the Constitution and the bill of rights It is Washington DC who absolutely refuses to here the will of the people and instead sell us out to the Lobbyist. It is We the People who have the law, the Constitution and the bill of rights on our side not Washington DC. We no longer have the right to free speech,We no longer have the right to unreasonable search and seizure through ( NDAA ) We no longer have the right to a trial by a jury of our peers ( NDAA ) We no longer have the right to privacy They monitor all emails and phone calls We are forced to pay taxes which there is no law and if you refuse you are illegally thrown in prison. We are now forced to buy a product that is so expensive that most of cannot afford so they passed a law that says we have to even though most Americans were against it. We are a Nation that was born One Nation Under God and now our Government wants to eliminate God from our National code. We are supposed to be a Nation of Laws but for some reason they only enforce the law against the citizens of this country. Our Government exempts themselves the laws the force us to live under. Not only do they allow people from other country's to come over our borders illegally. They take money that our legal hard working citizens worked for and set the illegals up in a new life while our citizens have to do without. Everything our founders tried to prevent with the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights is happening Because our Government sees the Constitution and the bill of rights as an obstruction to their agenda of one world Government. they are in the process of giving America To the UN. Now they are trying to take our only defense from Government take over by taking the right to bear arms.You call these small faults. Every one of these small faults you wrote about are true and are due to the Governments willingness to break down the fabric of this country. Voting and using your voice is no longer an effective tool they have proven they no longer listen You are wrong the backbone of this Country is not the working people The back bone of this country is the men and women who have and will stand up and fight for the laws, liberty's and the Constitution of the United States of America . The Government have crossed the line not We The People They must go back to governing by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and a Government by the people and for the people This war is being forced upon the American people by a Government who believes they are above the law and the Constitution does not pertain to them I served too it does not show you are more patriotic then those that didn't after all Benedict Arnold served also. If you are looking so hard for a hypocritical racist maybe you need to look in the mirror No Surrender No Retreat and No Compromise

    Im a vet too didnt serve 20 years. obama and his subversives will never disarm me and I can safely say 95% of all Texans. The US government does not give me any rights. My rights are give to me and everyone else by the Good Lord Jesus. When obama decides he is going to infringe on my God given rights. This little big eared muslim got problems. Texans were stupid enough to give our guns and horses up once. I can tell you one thing it wont happen again. Myself I would rather be an alive criminal than a dead law abiding citizen. Im hoping we all can get through the next 4 years of obama, with a peaceful and United States of America, that can be repaired from the damage this subversive has caused. He needs to be impeached, hopefully charges can be brought on him this year. Im praying to the Good Lord Jesus that charges are brought on this man. Just remember 50% of the people did not vote for him and detest him. I cant stand to hear the liar talk or even see his and his aunt Ester looking old lady's picture. JMHO!

    Thanks for your honesty... yes you stepped on out there but what the heck. At least you hoped to bring a little hope to some out here in dinarland and there's nothing wrong with that. You did qualify your statement too by mentioning that you're not a guru, just someone with some kind of connection. I crossed paths with someone who claimed to have info on the dinar earlier this summer. They said they had close to 100 million dinar from when they were in Iraq and that the money was worthless. They mentioned wall papering a room in their home. I told them to throw some of that worthless wall paper my way and then it wasn't so worthless, they didn't want to throw any of it my way. I mentioned to this person that I had to question their statement about it being worthless but not being willing to throw the worthless paper my way, they chuckled and said that they were going to hang on to it just in case something happened. I asked why did they spend the money to purchase that amount, (100 million) if they thought it was so worthless and the response was that it wasn't paid for, that the dinar they had was thrown their way at no cost to them. Hmmm.... I didn't question them anymore on it, just thought to myself that I may not want to know what they had shared. I personally believe we will prosper from our investment. I had an amount that I was hoping to get and I was blessed, I've had 2/3 of what I have given to me by family and friends. They told me that God laid it on their hearts to bless me with some and low and behold, I'm at the amount I had prayed about. People question some when they mention God is in this investment, my response is how can he not be. I believed God for a certain amount and that's what I have, plus I've given almost as much as I have to others when God laid it on my heart to give some to folks. But thanks for sharing, sorry about running rabbits, I have a tendency to do that at times. God bless, willy1der/pappy

    Another smee2 tale ... Now, this is not a joke. I found it funny, but it is not a circulating joke. It is, I am sorry, a long read, and if you don't care for my previous long reads, you can skip this now. Just trying to give fair warning. This didn't come from a friend, forwarded by one of their friends, in fact, I know for sure it has never been on the internet in any way before, because it happened to me ... smee2 ... yeah, THAT me ... So, here goes ... a Valentines Day Snippet Years ago, one of the current, flash-in-the-pan best known authors in Europe and North America was Xaviera Hollander. In case you don't recognize the name, she is "The Happy Hooker" ... the name of her book. I think she was arrested in the US and had to leave the country when she was let go and that is how she ended up living in Canada. We Canadians are forgiving, non-combative, and take in all sorts of people and this was a time when we had just gone through taking in a lot of "draft dodgers" I think they were called, who did not have the ease of conscience to be part of the Viet Nam war. Xaviera sort of snuck in there when we were not looking. Her book was held up, literally, in a session of parliament, and even given out to members of our parliament by a politician who was supporting her move to Canada, on a permanent basis. He was a Torontonian when he was not in Ottawa (the seat of our federal government) and we handled his home and office phone lines. That may be how she came to us, a referral from him. So, she was living in Toronto, as was I at that time. That time, ah ... that time. It was the early seventies (about 1973 or 4 as I recall) and the time span in which I met and fell for my now departed husband, Neil. (It is somewhat important to the gist of this story that you understand not only the what, but the WHEN. Also it was a time before the recognition of AIDs and the almost manditory use of condoms ) Anyway ... on with the snippet ... I was living the life ... in Toronto, a big city, and me a country girl, Toronto being somewhere I never thought to be ... But there I was. Working a job and a half to support my own little business that I had started up the second week of living there. I was, if nothing else, fairly ambitious. One of my part time jobs, the one where I met Neil by the way, who was a client I talked to every weekend evening for a few hours when he just called in to put in a request for a wake-up in the morning. You remember those times? We didn't all have telephones that went directly to voice mail, but had "answering services" ... places where your phone line was diverted so that a switchboard operator could take your calls when you were out and you would call when you got in to pick up the messages? Very popular with doctors who needed appointments taken or lunch time relief for their staff, and with people who just needed the service. For those of you who don't remember answering services ... I really feel sad for you. Anyway, I operated cord boards ... yup, like Lilly Tomlin in her "This is the phone company, we don't have to care:" comedy skit that helped to make her famous. You don't remember that either? Google her and you might find some of her stuff on YouTube. I hope it is somewhere, preserved for those who didn't get the joy and laughter of seeing it when it was happening. Geez ... I knew I was long winded sometimes, but this is getting ridiculous. Working evenings, weekends, and being on call for times when someone couldn't come in for their shift, I had to know a lot about all the boards in our establishment. The company I worked for had five or six offices in Toronto. I worked at them all, and knew most of the lines and customers associated with them without even looking. (Average in each office 500 to 700 lines) I was very good at some things and that was one of them. On our downtown office we had Ian Tyson, of Ian and Sylvia fame ... really? Google and maybe YouTube ... you get the idea. In that office we also had the home line for the mayor or Toronto, and some of the other locally and provincially well known and "famous" people who used our company for their answering service. We had one office where the operator, that would be me sometimes, dispatched tow trucks after office hours as well as taking phone lines and putting out pager signals ... pager signals? ... I am definitely getting too old if you don't remember those ... or maybe you are just too young! I know, I know ... but maybe Google ... you get it. It was on the most recent office opened that we had the home phone line for the agent (or promoter of some kind?) for Anne Murray ... singer ... television, radio, hootenanny stuff (hootenanny? Google), sort of the beginning of soft country ... Canadian, first hit "Snowbird", first woman, as well as first Canadian, to win the Album of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards, 1984, for "A Little Good News" ... and before long in her career, and for many years, a Las Vegas, mega hotel/casino (super star, sort of the Ceine Dionne of the day} showroom entertainer. Anyway, we would chat with her when she was in between shows, or after the shows were over, late at night, when she was in Vegas. She knew that if she called her agent and he wasn't home, she would end up talking to one of the switchboard answering service girls. Often she called after a show, to wind down, knowing she would get one of us,and just needing someone to chat with. One year we all got signed Christmas Cards from her. Sidetracked? Me? No, never ... hahaha At one of the offices, as I started out to say, we had the line for Xaviera Hollander (pronounced Zaviera) on our boards. And this is where the Valentine part comes in. I get there ... it sometimes takes a while, but I do usually get there. There were a lot of calls the evening before, and the day of, Valentines Day, for Xaviera ... a hot chick in anyone's book and she had made a lot of friends in Toronto. One of them was a fellow she had been ... dating ... another old fashioned term which may or may not be something you can Google ... anyway, she had been dating a gentleman who also had his phone lines on our boards. So, on Valentine's Eve, Xaviera, who had been out that evening with this gentleman, called his home when she got home brfore he got back to his home,and we got his line because he had not gone straight home but out for a drink, he said. She called to leave him a Happy Valentine's Day message. Being European and not speaking English as a first language, she surely did not realize what she had said when she said " Take a message and say this ... "Happy VD" ... which she meant to convey the message, Happy Valentine's Day. We all knew better, but we were trained to take a message as it was given, word for word if the caller wanted it that way. And since we were dealing with both ends of the conversation, her line and his, we made sure it was taken as given.( Xaviera Hollander was a world renowned prostitute and madam, with "houses of ill repute" in most European countries. Her book "The Happy Hooker", was scooped up like candy by women who wanted tips on how to "entertain" a man, and by men who wanted to hear the juiciest of her adventures.) The evening passes, as does the night, and voila, we are at Valentine's Day ... and of course everyone wants to have that evening off to go out with their husbands or boyfriends (boyfriend, archaic term ... Google it) ... Well the message, taken as given, sat in his message box all day and the gentleman did not pick it up until early evening. So it was me, smee2 me, who had taken the message to begin with, who had to give it him when he called. So I read it out saying, "Miss Hollander left a message, saying, "Happy VD" ". There was this audible intake of breath, a pregnant pause if ever I heard one, and then he exhaled an explosion as if he had been holding his breath ... "What did she say, exactly?" I explained to him that when we are given something to say in the caller's own words, we write it down, and relay it just that way. She said "Happy VD". He hung up the phone without even saying Thank You as he usually did, being a very polite gentleman. Immediately Xaviera's line rings. She is taking a bubble bath, we don't know if she is alone but she had alerted us she was going to be in the bath of bubbles and we should take her messages until she called back. It was the gentleman calling of course. I had just been speaking to him, and he may have thought the voice was familiar, because he questioned who he was speaking to, very confused ... for more reasons than one I suspect. He wanted to know where she was, what she was doing, with whom, when would she be back, could he reach her before that? We could not give out any of that information and I asked him if he wished to leave a message. His message ... "What!" He called back several times while she was in the "bath of bubbles" and kept leaving messages like "What did you mean?" Where the h@ll are you?" "Why are you not calling me back?" "What did you mean by your message?" "Call me ASAP" {ASAP, another pre-cel , pre-PC, and pre-text era term) She got the messages, all of them, when she was out of the bath, and ready to take messages. As I gave them to her she kept asking what did he say exactly, and why would he say that, and he sounds upset ... no kidding. He was upset. And to him, fit was or a very obvious reason. (Now don't try to tell me you are so young you don't remember the term VD !) She left him a message ... "It does not sound like you are having a Happy VD at all. When will you be here? I am almost ready for our date to go to the club." When he finally got the message she left, he was, it seemed, well on his way to a next day, liquor induced hangover. Now, we operated on the old fashioned cord board ... and although it was possible, it was against all company rules, to cross the cords and let one party speak with another if they are both on the same service. The back and forth messages started getting very heated so I offered to "hook them up" literally. It is rude, bad manners, sometimes funny, and most likely illegal, to listen in on these conversations except to just touch the contact to see if the line is still open, meaning the conversation is not finished. But I was, at that time, rude, unmannerly, uncaring of the legality, and looking for a chuckle. After all, I was the one working Valentine's. So, yes, I admit it ... I listened in. He was angry and hollering. She was confused and questioning. They were both trying to get information from the other and neither one of them was taking the time to find out what was at the base of this conflict. I took my life, well maybe just my job, in my hands and broke into the conversation, with "Excuse me. Excuse me!" Well, they stopped talking and shouting over each other, and surprised, listened to me. I explained my position and that I had been privy to both sides of this "conversation" that wasn't really a conversation at that point. And I solved the misunderstanding, and put their relationship back on track, with each of them apologizing to the other, and both of them forgetting all about me. And what makes this funny, at least to me? I had to explain to the wealthiest, best known, published, hot point of very strong opinions, and undeniably the most famous prostitute of the time, that in English, VD means venereal disease. And the memory of that, ladies and gentlemen, is what makes me chuckle every Valentine's Day. To answer a question that some of you will be asking ... NO ... since breaking my back I DON'T have anything better that I CAN do with my time. But I do enjoy story telling.

    No that would be way to logical, and confrontational for the poor nutty professors, they wouldn't want any facts getting in the way of reprogramming our youth to be socialists. I agree with you though, the more opinions and facts the merrier. This however not how the educational system works now days.

    Surgery went great, about 90 minutes for an open reduction with a plate & 12 screws. I wasn't able to have the popliteal block because I was having nerve pain in my foot... Hence I'm in major pain right now. I'll be in a splint for 2 weeks, return to change the bandages & check my progress then a hard cast for 6 weeks. Thanks so much for your positive thoughts & prayers, I know they gave me great comfort. KK MADD for Heather

    Bottom Line, Money, Greed, and abuse of power to gain control is breaking down the United States which starts at the top. When elected leaders of a nation no longer practice good ethical values with integrity but continue to govern in the best interest of lobbyist's who are supplying money for their own agenda's the system begins to break down and eventually will fail. These elected officials no longer lead by example rather they are leading by influence.

    I'm no psychologist, but I have noticed that quite a few posts have taken a turn toward the UGLY. What's up with that? If you truly believe that there is a profound difference between parties, you have been living in a cave. Lately, I have noticed more and more "hate" towards others on this site. As if calling someone a name or labeling them will change the course of events. Hey, venting is one thing, but blantly calling discrediting someone for having an opposite view point is CHILDISH. What's next, "I know you are, but what am I?" BS?!? So you dont like Obummer or whomever the PTB annointed to office. You voted for the other gal/guy. You just want to be "left alone". Good! I want the same for my family and life. However, NEITHER party will leave us alone. Neither party offers a solution to the problems that beset the country. Why? because they are PART of the problem. As I have stated in earlier posts, this is the PLAN. Follow me? It is the plan to have the commoners (mundanes, as Lew Rockwell likes to call us) fight amongs ourselves. It is the PLAN to dumb-down the popuation into thinking there is a difference between a kick to the nuts or a punch to the groin. Dunno, I think both hurt equally. Having differences in opinions is GREAT. Having to start calling people names/labels is, in debate forum, called "losing the argument". I enjoy reading all the different stuff I see in here. Helps make my day at work go by with a little more interest and, hopefully, seeing different view point being offered. BUT, this crap about all those "stinkin liberals, commies or right-wing nazis" is nothing but a label. Is this what you teach your children? "Hey, if that dude doesnt agree with you, then call him a name! that'll show em! Getting the last word in always wins an agrument..." It is similar to talking louder if someone doesnt understand what you are saying to begin with. Yeah, yell what you are saying, that'll make it clearer! Good god almight. So, you might take offense to what I just wrote. Sorry. But all those "negative vibes, Morerity" (Kelly's Heroes-love that movie) doesnt help your discussion. OK, I am done VENTING. Again, I meant no offense to anyone here in DV. Dunno, just saying.... trying to stay Peaceful

    Parents Complain About School Ad Excluding Whites From Tutoring Program February 13, 2013 6:18 PM (credit: CBS) AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A school principal said no white children were allowed at an after-school tutoring program, and now some parents call it discrimination. The principal at Mission Viejo Elementary in Aurora sent a letter telling parents the program is only for students of color. Parents CBS4 talked with said they were shocked to see, in this day and age, what they consider to be segregation. “I was infuriated. I didn’t understand why they would include or exclude certain groups,” said parent Nicole Cox, who is white. Cox’s 10-year-old daughter needs tutoring. After receiving the notice, other parents complained to the school’s principal, Andre Pearson. “We have come so far in all of these years to show everybody that everyone is equal, that everyone should be treated equally … this is a form of bullying,” Cox said. Before Cox could complain to the school, Pearson contacted her directly. His voicemail only seemed to reinforce the segregated tutoring idea. “This is Andre Pearson. It’s focused for and designed for children of color, but certainly, if we have space for other kids who have needs, we can definitely meet those needs,” Pearson told Cox in the voicemail.

    No it is the other so called news sources that choose to hide truth from viewers if it hurts the current administration or the liberal adgenda and we find that offensive. The more you people try to diminish FOX News the more we realize we should actually pay attention to FOX News, the manipulation and distortion you've become accustomed to is foolish at best, at the very least concerning. Stop trying to slander any oposition it is so petty and transparent.

    Wouldn't one ban the use of ANY news channel as primary source? I thought the exercise was to do one's own research in discovering the bottom line of the topic at hand.... and I can't see using TV news as an authentic primary source document for such a query.... Course its been awhile since I was in school... so maybe undergrads use TV instead of the library these days Thats not real encouraging....

    Hi Easyrider. I'm at work and don't have a lot of time to expound but in a nutshell here are my thoughts. The SBA, in my opinion, is a key IMF gateway of Iraq monetary control. In other words, when Iraq took the money, Iraq had to provide accountability to the IMF of its monetary affairs which also includes its "exchange rate regime" (I might add). (not to head into any conspiratorial view of history but..) The infamous "LOAN" has been the #1 method of controlling any nation. The LOAN makes any law(s) of marginal concern at best to the financier. "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes its laws" - Amscher Rothschild So the IMF (or global financiers) have taken up stakes in Iraq through the mechanism of debt. Will they extend the SBA through Feb 23? I don't think it is really a major issue in and of itself because the debt has already been established and hence a method of monetary control. What that means for a rv is a two fold coin. If Iraq honors the request of its financiers and meet their imposed deadlines, I believe there is money to be made. If Iraq continues its internal squabbles and fail to meet imposed deadlines, the same financiers can lock the country in the dark ages until they are ready to release them. In a nutshell, Iraq has multiple leashes and choke chains around its neck by global financiers the SBA being merely one tool. If Iraq disappoints, she will pay dearly. Sadly it is the way of the global world and anyone who kicks against it pays a heavy price (ie Gaddafi and his new gold dinar). This is all my humble opinion worth a little less than
