  1. These regs are aimed at Qualified Business Units - as in companies operating in foreign countries that do their business and their accounting in foreign currencies due to where they are situated. It concerns how to translate the number crunching into USD for purposes of reporting it on a US tax return. Individuals, as investors, are not Qualified Business Units, although a person operating an overseas business as a sole proprietorship could be.
  2. And to think the Basra bunch were fixin' to pee in the pool during BudgetFest. What a turn around. Maynard
  3. "we're late in the advancement of our economy and I could not wear an elegant suit because of Iraqi coffee." My sentiments exactly. With that coffee, I wouldn't be caught dead in my elegant suit!
  4. I think the Iraqi government has learned from the past. It may well be with the Shiites outnumbering the Sunnis like they do, they could muster the votes to force the HCL through. But without some sense of consensus, they're no better off then they were before. Sunnis and Kurds screaming about Shiite oppression and everyone keeps fighting and nothing ever gets done. M
  5. Awesome stuff, umbertino. Listened to the LP and Machinehead LP til the grooves wore out. Maynard
  6. Deputy Liberal: Many important laws could pass without the need to attend a state law - 20 January 2013 I had an article that had some relevance to how Iraq is doing some fo these rapid-fire Gazzette publications, and I very efficiently and effectively lost it. If anyone is familiar with this piece and can link it for me, that'd be most groovy. Maynard
  7. THe Twins are the home team. Need I say more? [sigh] Maynard
  8. Kap will be the first to tell you he doesn't run on inside info or 'intel' cuz there ain't any. He is a good guy and a hard worker in trying to understand this investment, even if he has uttered speculations that didn't pan out. His views are still very much worth reading, in my opinion. Maynard
  9. Here's my take on it MiuraDude: Granted it makes little sense to be risking 10 years in prison to counterfeit toilet paper. But what about when the lower notes are out and they are revalued? The old lower notes are easier to counterfeit than the new, more secure currency. Counterfeiting might now be a problem, but realistically, they are gonna have to address this post RV because there will be much more point to it for crooks. Maynard
  10. I heard the brief broadcast. I really don't think it was his intention to suggest that the show was cancelled due to the "live and fluid situation" being connected to an impending RV. He uses that line very frequently. I think way too much is being read into this. Maynard
  11. Ban Ki Moon, head honcho at UN. Maynard
