  1. Breaking news: Hillarious bin-Sadr just chosen for PM job: 😂
  2. Thanks for all you do Yota691. I don't think I'll have all that long, to say thanks. Haha. 😁
  3. If the Iraqi election works out and is fair, maybe they could send some election workers to Pittsburgh in 2024. 😁
  4. The sad part of this story...wasting trillions of tax payer dollars... is what is not being said. About all the Americans that could have been helped, with all those trillions of dollars. And the soldiers whose lives were lost, the wives that lost a husband, the kids that lost a dad. The only "nation building" America should be doing now, is at home. What was it really about? It is mostly rich Americans getting richer, if they own stock in war manufacturers. Crazy. I hope people realize one of the obvious lessons here: As technology spreads around the world, wars are getting harder. I remember reading that in the early 1900s, the British moved into Egypt with a couple hundred soldiers, controlled the whole country. It worked because the Egyptians didn't have guns or telephones. Now America had trouble controlling Iraq because they have lots of weapons, you don't need that much to fight back against even a great army like America has. When America leaves, Saddam 2.0 will take over. They just aren't up to democracy. I thought America learned these simple lesson in Vietnam. I guess not. You can blow the crap out of a country, but controlling it with force? Occupying it? Imposing our values on them? That's a million times harder. Don't bother, especially if it's a country with a very different religion, like Afghanistan. Total waste of time. Oh well, at least I'll make a few million out of this fiasco...President Trump warned us. He did an op-ed in a New York paper, before the war, saying don't bother going to war with Iraq, it's stupid. He told us why. He was right. The American elites didn't listen to him, so here we are, twenty years later, up to our knees in stupid. Never thought I'd make money off the stupidity of the American elite, but now I think that's exactly what will happen. Wish it wasn't so, but I'll take the money. Seriously, Americans are nice people. You sure deserve better leaders.
  5. Good post. My own comment is just as optimistic as yours. My take is that we have entered the "low risk category" of investments. The news has been consistently good, for so long, I don't see any sign this is going anywhere except, a happy ending. Yeah, the risk is long washed out. The risk was extremely high at the beginning. Now I'd rate this investment "very low risk". I know it doesn't seem that way because we have waited so long, but I think it's the truth. The "Promised Land" is in sight, folks. Moses Adam is just taking a break. Pray for him, he's been a very faithful positive leader. This time, Moses will enter the Promised Land!
  6. When it happens, invite your cousins over. Get someone to make up a big banner, with those words on it. Hang it in the living room.
  7. Maybe the Afghan currency is so much over-valued because Joke Biden 🤡 left tens of billions of dollars in first class, very fine American military equipment behind, the Afghans are selling that technology to China our enemy, it's incredibly valuable technology, fortune to be made, the currency market is recognizing all that money...hahah 😁
  8. Joe Stalin: "It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes." Joe Biden: "I won!" Honestly, looks suspicious. I don't know what happened, all I can say is American elections are fishy at best. Anyone who thinks American elections are fairly counted, should put down the bong.
  9. My guess is Republicans will be unsuccessful in removing Joe Biden from office. But my opinion is that Democrats will be successful in removing Joe Biden from office.
  10. By George!...is an old English expression. It is an exclamation of surprise!....By George, I think you are correct! This will be a time of great "Sorrow"...if you know what I mean. And I think you do.
  11. My guess is Biden will be removed, but not for any "vote fraud". Biden said the other day the Generals didn't tell him to leave troops behind in Afghanistan. The Generals said they told him. Who do I believe? The Generals. I don't think Biden is lying. I think he can't remember. Can you trust your country to a man who can't remember what he had for breakfast? Don't think so. Many of you had older relatives, saw them lose their mental faculties. I did too. Some day I may lose my marbles, they'll have to take away my driver's license. We can all see what is going on. Uncle Joe should not be driving. Gonna run someone over. 💨🚀
  12. Motley Fool says oil will hit $100 https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/topstories/oil-price-could-hit-dollar100-top-2-stocks-to-hold/ar-AAOVe0d?ocid=mailsignout&li=AAggFp5
  13. America is in trouble. No one can trust anyone? Democracy is finished. Who won isn't the issue. It's lack of trust. With no trust, there is no freedom, no real elections, no social cohesion. No wonder so many DV folks will take the money and run to some foreign place to live. Oh well, enjoy your money when it comes. I'll see you on the beaches of DR....
  14. Iraq also has a Space Program. 🚀 😬 🌍They intend on landing on the Sun.🌞 🔥 People criticized them for that, saying you guys will burn up if you land, the sun is hot. But Iraq had an answer: It won't be hot. We're going at night! 🚀 💨
  15. I stick around because I am curious about a question: What are the Poker 🃏 "tells" going to be?...when this thing pops. Maybe it's the UN speech. Maybe the UN is just down the road from the IMF, where papers will be signed. Yota691 will be able to tell, he keeps close track.
  16. I really enjoy making stupid comments here. The sad part is, eventually I don't get to make any more stupid comments, because I'll be rich. The happy part is, I'll be rich, everyone will be gone, I'll be making stupid comments to an empty room. 😢
  17. ......I believe Wolverine. He did his Update. I believe Wolverine. RV soon to follow. In the coming days. The long wait is over my friends. Never mind FU, F-Me distribution... You want to challenged him? Say it to Wolverine face. Who dares challenge wolverine? Actual photos of wolverines: Whale said it. I believe it!...obviously Luigi is Italian. They are great Opera Singers, like Luciano Pavarotti. The Whale is obviously an Opera Singer. Magnifico!...Actual recording of the Whale singing about RV...treat as rumor. My opine. Not Marine Biologist varafried:
  18. Jordan Peterson has lots of videos explaining that under atheist communists, their leaders killed 100 Million people. If you are looking to lack of belief in God to save the human race, good luck with that.
  19. 3 Stories and a Question to predict the future: Story 1 from Pew Research: Why Muslims are the world’s fastest-growing religious group BY MICHAEL LIPKA AND CONRAD HACKETT In the next half century or so, Christianity’s long reign as the world’s largest religion may come to an end, according to a just-released report that builds on Pew Research Center’s original population growth projections for religious groups. Indeed, Muslims will grow more than twice as fast as the overall world population between 2015 and 2060 and, in the second half of this century, will likely surpass Christians as the world’s largest religious group. While the world’s population is projected to grow 32% in the coming decades, the number of Muslims is expected to increase by 70% – from 1.8 billion in 2015 to nearly 3 billion in 2060. In 2015, Muslims made up 24.1% of the global population. Forty-five years later, they are expected to make up more than three-in-ten of the world’s people (31.1%).

The main reasons for Islam’s growth ultimately involve simple demographics. To begin with, Muslims have more children than members of the seven other major religious groups analyzed in the study. Muslim women have an average of 2.9 children, significantly above the next-highest group (Christians at 2.6) and the average of all non-Muslims (2.2). In all major regions where there is a sizable Muslim population, Muslim fertility exceeds non-Muslim fertility. Story 2 from Pew Research: Is U.S. fertility at an all-time low? Two of three measures point to yes BY GRETCHEN LIVINGSTON For the fourth year running, a key U.S. fertility rate has reached a record low, according to the most recent government figures. To some, this is cause for hand-wringing, as concerns arise that fewer births will spell problems for the nation’s economy; while others, concerned about limited natural resources, may look positively on the decline. But aside from this debate, the question remains: Is this really a record low? The short answer is, it’s complicated, because there are different ways to measure fertility. Three of the most commonly used indicators are the general fertility rate (GFR), completed fertility, and the total fertility rate (TFR). All three reflect fertility behavior in slightly different ways – respectively, in terms of the annual rate at which women are presently having kids; the number of kids they ultimately have; or the hypothetical number they would likely have based on present fertility patterns. None of these indicators is “right” or “wrong,” but for years each measure told a different story about when fertility bottomed out. For the first time in decades, two of the three measures – the GFR and the TFR – now align, indicating that fertility hit a record low in 2018. Meanwhile, data for 2018 completed fertility is not yet available, but 2016 data indicates that it has been ticking up, not down, in recent years. The latest report from the National Center for Health Statistics used the general fertility Story 3 from Afghanistan on Sharia Law: On April 30, 2013, Pew Research Centre published findings of a survey, conducted during the days when there was US military presence in Afghanistan, stated 99 per cent of Afghanis wanted Sharia to be the official law of the land in the state. The study titled: “The World’s Muslims: Religion, politics and society” talked about the Muslims beliefs about Sharia. The survey was based on 23 countries where questions were asked pertaining to Islamic Sharia. This survey was carried out before Taliban took over Afghanistan. Last week, in dramatic coup, the Islamist organisation Taliban took over the government as the elected President and other officials fled the country. The Taliban toppled the government weeks after US withdrew its forces. Muslims favour making Sharia the law of the land 99% of Afghanis who were interviewed also favoured making Sharia law of the land. Similarly, 84% of the Pakistani who participated in the survey favoured the same. The survey stated that in South Asia, high percentages in all the countries surveyed support making sharia the official law, especially Afghanistan where as many as 99 per cent of Muslims favor making Islamic law the official law in their country. Question: Whatever you think of Islam, who does the future belong to? I just checked the online American abortion clock. Since Roe vs. Wade America is now at 63 Million. Follow the numbers, draw your own conclusions.
