  1. I believe you're right Mortimer. But you know how you want SO much for friends and loved ones to be a part of something good and potentially life-changing, but can't get them to see the possibilities? I can deal with the frustration of that, but to be insulted in addition....... Thanks for taking the time to respond! Shalom!

    AoK -- Yes, most are familiar with this feeling ... but, I learned many moons ago that you can't want it MORE for someone else than he does for himself (or she does for herself). Whether I'm giving someone (who's living hand-to-mouth) a job or simply passing a tip to a friend, this rule always applies.

    And I (personally) wouldn't buy any IQD for someone else hoping to give it to them post-RV.

    If this thing hits, we'll have plenty of opportunities to be charitable ... especially if it approaches a dollar. Therefore, I'll keep all of mine and make myself (and a portion of my financial resources) available to those in need and 'needy' causes.

    That ought to do ...

  2. So, I have a friend who claims this is a "pump & dump scheme".

    Here is what he wrote: "....this is a well known "pump and dump" scheme. You have not done due diligence in this matter, and I assure you that you are mistaken in nearly all of your assumptions and information. ***** and I are not interested in this in any way, shape, or form."

    I'm in the process of collecting information to dispute that assertion. I was hoping more experienced investors could help me in a rebuttal. Thanks, beforehand, for any links and info. to augment my own argument.

    Regards

    I wouldn't bother. Why try to sell/convince him?

    If it ever RV's that will be evidence enough. Trust me, you are wasting your time.

  3. It's not knowing how to spell basic words that really shows you as ignorant (not just an occasional mistake). These are second and third grade spelling words.

    to, too, lose (not loose), their, there, they're, your, you're, where, were,does

    And please, don't say bare with me;-we are not getting naked together (it's bear with me).

    It's like I told my kids- the way you know a person is a bum is by their outward appearance. It's the same with the written word.

    And yes, of course there is an exception for people from other countries and people with dyslexia, and the occasional typo but they are easily distinguished.

    But people who misspell the above words do so repeatedly.

    Well done! I really like this post -- most definitely (NOT definately).

  4. Actually, "Off Topic Posts" is a forum where anyone can go and present the "topics of their choice" that don't concern the "dinar". You might want to "read" some of the posts, they are pretty interesting. Qman is very well respected on this site, and he writes from his "heart". He gives us a few moments away from the "dinar", as do most of the other members who post in the "Off Topic Post". I am sure the "moderators" of this site close down posts that are offensive and hurtful...they do a good job. I am greatful for the chance to be part of this group. There are some wonderful members here.

    I would speculate that more than 50% of the posts on this site are no longer regarding the IQD. Qman has never (that I can remember) posted something of relevance to 'our' IQD investment. There are plenty of political sites/blogs out there that will be happy to receive Qman's posts. The problem is: Those are the sites that he usually copies and pastes FROM.

    Bye, Qman. God Bless ...

    Just too many people bashing for a spelling error, trivial isn't it.

    Does grooming really matter?

    Like it or not, either way IT MAKES AN IMPRESSION about the individual.

    Please familiarize yourselves with google tool bar. Just hit spell ck before sending.

    There's a difference between typos and plain old "bad spelling" ...

  6. The guy is already a millionaire he is talking about getting the word out and is why it is selling well.

    Sarah Palin is an idiot but her books sell well ... question is: what's the average IQ of the people who buy her books? Same question for your guy? And you, I presume ...

  7. Not sure why you post, 220 Mike??

    This grist has been through the mill many, many times. Having regrets, are you?

    The population of this board will be unaffected by your opinion, but you certainly will get the major blowback that you desire. So, as you push the buttons of this DV board, enjoy the show ... that's really what you wanted anyway, isn't it??

  8. I don't know specifically what Adam has said, but this website, DinarVets, suggests that posters and subscribers are informed, engaged, and prepared. That's a very strong suggestion that the dinar will RV. In addition, the vast majority of the posters here are indeed firm believers that the dinar will RV and reading their posts would only lead you to that conclusion. But, as you admit, it's really nothing more than a belief. You have nothing but belief that the rate will eventually change. That, to me, doesn't make it much different than a rapturist. It's not a bad thing. I just think it's very interesting that we all seem to agree that the rapturists are a bit silly and delusional. But, if we are completely honest, we are not much different in our sincere and passionate belief that the dinar will RV. Perhaps we are far more silly and delusional than we think.

    Of course, we all believe that there is a strong suggestion that the IQD will increase in value ($$). If you had read Adam's book before you invested you would have seen that he estimated that were the IQD to RV, it could begin as low as $0.10. Now, in chat, he says that an LOP is possible (though unlikely) and that (now) if the IQD RV's, he wouldn't be surprised to see an initial rate of $0.10 - $0.35.

    The way you stretch your logic is a bit rediculous.

    I've known since the beginning that this investment may bring me no, or little, gain. Didn't you?? I just figured that I would much rather be in and 'lose' than not participate and watch a phenomenal return pass me bye ...

    Please reference my previous post for options that you might consider (which we know you won't consider).

    I actually gave you a +1 for your original post (for creativity). Now, as you adhere to a rediculous premise, you are sounding more and more like Camping himself.

  9. NW, I've got to agree with Mr. Rich ... you are taking this a bit too far. However, if you want to take it a step further, the Rapturists could have abandoned their belief of May 21st (now Oct ??). Similarly, you can abandon your following of DV and your following of the IQD (your investing in the IQD).

    Should you choose to divest of the IQD, you'll take a (somewhat) minor loss (today). The 'all in' believers of your referenced 'cult' are not so lucky. Many of them budgeted to the day of May 21st and/or quit their jobs and sold their property. Now what? they are probably asking.

    For you, were you to divest of the IQD, there should be many other horizons for you to pursue ;-)

    Yes, I know that you are NOT going to divest. So do you ... so please just drop it.

  10. I cant believe people are actually voting yes, that they will get rid of their dinar just cause it doesnt happen by June laugh.gif Can any of the people who voted yes, please explain why......and answer if you were under the impression that this was going to happen overnight, or if you knew this could be quite the longterm investment....

    Are you serious? You really can't believe it ... ??

    Probably more than half the people on this board are borderline crazy (or just plain desperate). It seems natural that many would bail out if there is no RV by July 1.

    Think about it ...

    I'm like Mr. Rich ... I said in December that if this thing doesn't happen by the 4th of July, then we'll have a very long wait. I'll hold my IQD, definitely, but I'll be gone from monitoring this board more than once a month.

  11. The latest RUMOR/SPECULATION I've heard from the guy who got me tuned into this is, "around June. About $.56. I don't know. Nobody but the folks making the call know, and anybody who says they do is either a liar or a fool. I'm probably a fool.." But he's been firm with the June date since last year. I was in a rush to buy last fall, but he told me and my wife not to hurry but to have all the dinar we were going to buy in hand by mid-May. Who knows...

    The people I also get a kick out of are the ones who readily accept the idea of $3.50 ($1000 into $3.5 million) or so, but laugh and point if someone else throws out $5+ ($1000 into $5+ million). As if that kind (@$3) of return on investment is not absurd enough in itself. It's like conspiracy nuts arguing over the eye color of Bigfoot. Don't get me wrong - anything over $.10 will make me ecstatic, but since they're creating fiat money out of thin air, why not just bump it on up there....lol

    These are two of the best paragraphs ever posted on this board ...

    "... arguing over the eye color of Big Foot ... " Love it!!

    All Day ... $0.56 ... !!!

    Still, I have to add ... Go Packers!

  12. I'm sorry Michel and I don't mean to be disrespectful here but IMO there is no "intel" in this information. A school teacher is speculating just like the rest of us. The information about Shabibi was last month. I think there are bigger questions to ask when it comes to receiving information over Skyp and other miscellaneous sources. JMO :huh::blink:<_<

    It's the rumors section, dude ... please see the 'facts' section for guaranteed, bonafide intel ... thanks!

  13. What Z said. :)

    Here is something else.

    Obama said this in the address to Congress:

    "My Administration will evaluate Iraq's ongoing efforts in this regard, as well as its progress in resolving outstanding debts and claims arising from actions of the previous regime, so that I may determine whether to continue beyond June 30, 2011".

    www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/05/17/message-president-regarding-continuation-national-emergency-respect-stab

    Well, excuse me Mr. Prez, but you just signed a one year EO extension, right? Whaddya mean "so I may determine whether to continue beyond June 30?"

    This tells me that there will be NO EXTENSIONS BY THE U.N. , and Obama knows that.

    It is DO OR DIE by June 30th!

    According to Breitling, Iraq would have had to request an extension of the DFI deadline at least 60 days before the June 30 deadline (see chat recently posted). He says that they did not do that. Therefore, there will be no extension of the UN deadline re: DFI.

  15. Hey, let's be a little respectable, here. Sonny1 was a valued member and moderator for DV. Sonny1 no longer comes to this site, and I can't blame him. There really is no need to bash and disrespect other members.

    Sonny1 was on this board yesterday ... so, I guess you mean that as of TODAY he no longer comes to this site?

    To say the least, Sonny1 has been pretty much up and down since January regarding his opinion/contacts/intel. If one is going to say it, then one should stand by it! And, better yet, explain why his opinion has changed. I've never minded someone saying that he doesn't know __________ (fill in the blank). So often, however, individuals are inclined to state 'facts' without revealing sources, then *poof* -- a new 'fact'.

    In defense of Sonny1 ... if he is now saying that he doesn't forsee a point-in-time RV (but rather a gradual increase in the value of the IQD -- a la Ali), then so be it, but he shouldn't be surprised that others would become frustrated by his past posturing (building 'name recognition'). And, Dogmatic, it doesn't quite compute that you would defend him as a non-factor/non-poster on DV when he just posted on May 16th, does it? That's y e s t e r d a y ...

    Even Adam was almost foaming at the mouth around February 1st b/c Sonny1 had a contact who (so far) had never been wrong and Sonny1 was just waiting to get the final word re: his contact's RV projection. Remember?

    Sonny1 is probably right in that we should just wait for the email/text/phone call. This latest buildup to RV (similar to Jan 1st buildup) has the feel of a non-starter once again.

  16. No. You are wrong on all accounts. Currencies don't have magical powers. They neither create nor destroy wealth. If currencies had the magically ability to create wealth, why wouldn't we simply re-value our own currency if we wanted more wealth? Why do we need another country to re-value their currency to create wealth for us? If currencies had this magically power, why are countries like Bangladesh, Uzbekistan and Somalia dirt poor? (By the way, if you think our economy is a hell hole, try living in any of these countries for a while.) Why don't they just re-value their currencies and create wealth for their citizens? Because that's not the role of a currency. They can't do it. That's a foolish notion. They are simply mediums of exchange that individuals use to trade labor, skills and ideas for products and services. Nothing more. Nothing less. Wealth is ONLY created by increasing productivity. If the dinar strengthens, it will only be because productivity in Iraq has measurably increased and it hasn't been diluted by the issuance of more currency or credit. It will have absolutely NO effect on our economy. Contrary to your notion, it would, however, actually weaken the dollar. A currency only has relative value to other currencies. It is a completely interdependent relationship. If 2 people are facing each other, one can only move forward if the other one moves backward. If one currency becomes more valuable (increases its purchasing power) because the country issuing the currency has become more productive, then the relative value of all other currencies, by default, are weaker. If the value of the dinar were to suddenly and significantly strengthen overnight (don't count on it), the value of the US dollar (relative to the dinar, at least) would decrease.

    Don't make this harder than what it is. The RV is not about us. It's not about our country or our debts or our currency. The value of the dinar will ONLY increase as the productiviity of Iraq has increased. It's a simple concept. There's no big conspiracy that is holding up the RV. There's no secret consortiums or backroom deals that are being made. There's no international end game or secret economic principles that are being tested. It's a currency. Its value is determined like every other currency and will continue to be. And right now, that value in US dollars is 1,170 dinar trades for 1 dollar.

    Well said. Now, go put on your bullet-proof vest.

    They don't take kindly to that kind of talk in these parts ...

  17. Is it just me or is this new Klingon stuff anoying. Are we looseing our freakin minds watching this so close? I have to admit it's fun and entertaining to watch people freak out over the post today though. Tomorrow I guess we will be deceifering Chewbacca tomorrow.

    Sweet dreams.. GO RV

    No, it's not just you ...

    BUT, it apparently IS your turn to feel this way.

    You've only been on this board for a month and a half.

    You can be sure that there's more to come.
