  1. This video just made me shake my head.. Yes, with climate change comes much concern about how weather effects us... coastal areas, farming, animals, insects, our eco system as well as many other valuable aspects of our lives. There have been many that have said future wars will not be necessarily via hand to had combat but by cyber warfare. Technology does exist with the ability to knock out an electrical power grid remotely as well as by launched warfare over head that could render hugely damaged power grids. If the US power grid was disabled, we'd have far more issues then concerns about cell and internet service. If this country couldn't pump gas, drive vehicles and trucks, transport food, cool or heat their homes, run a business, access banks and cash.. no lights, no communication.. we'd immediately be driven back to the early 1900's. Most would never be able to cope with this level of change. Let's not forget how our nuclear power plants need electricity to pump water for cooling and when the generators don't have fuel, it stops and would incur meltdowns nationwide. (massive radiation) I fully respect our military.. the best in the world. The report is accurate and does cover a few of the things of concern. I have to believe the guys in this video are a bit out of touch. At the time of about 2:55, the guy with the sport jacket and 80's t-shirt says " obviously most important is you'd loose your internet and phone service, other than that you'll be okay". What? (shaking my head) And then the twink that snarls his nose at 3:10 saying" let me put this in terms that you'll understand" Climate change is something we have to spend more time understanding... these guys aren't going to get you there.
  2. The US and the Trump administration are the ones calling the shots, controlling the timing on this. Not the IMF and Not the World Bank… Really? I don't think that's accurate. So much of everything we'd learned over the years is all about the IMF, CBI, fully seated government and the oil and gas law. I can't imagine our whole wait has been sitting on any of our US Presidents over the years to just push a button.
  4. This is certainly a good thing to hear even though we pretty much already knew that. It's what we're all waiting, hoping, believing and planning for. Here's the ultimate question of the decade.... when? (which of course we are all wondering)
  5. In this article the Finance committee is expressing that the budget is the "worst in history". It also states they don't know how to deal with the crisis... calling out "the sales of state properties", the "exchange rate of the Dinar" and "tax collections" all to be impractical. I want this thing to pop as much as everyone else.. we all know it's been a long bumpy road but I don't see this pointing to anything positive... help me out here and please correct me if I'm missing something. Thanks and have a peaceful Sunday.
  6. I have to agree that there may be a bit of a translation issue and possibly poor writing when this article was created. They use the words "Benefits and costs" and didn't use the words disadvantages or encumbrances. The comment regarding the devaluation I believe refers to their past tense actions (many years go) And, when they refer to reducing the dinar, they're referring to the amount of paper currency and not the value.
  7. I couldn't help but notice the women in this picture. (Woman - front left) WHAT did you say to me?!?! (Woman - front right) Ohhhh, here she goes again!
  8. Same sh*t Different smell. 😀
  9. "The Commission is determined to make these changes during the next phase and not to follow the traditional methods are not appropriate at the moment." Two questions I have on this statement.. When would be the next phase? They will not follow traditional methods to make these changes... Is that because he knows traditional methods in Iraq are usually unproductive?
  10. I find it interesting that our own government would create a website and email address labeled, "Iraq Dinar Scam". Although I know there are deceitful people out there wanting to promote their own agenda by breaking the law, what else is the government doing.. fishing? downplaying the currency? I wonder if there's an additional agenda?
  11. Whaaat? Oh c'mon. (.. major friggin' eye roll..) I live in NC and no, this can't be true. There's no way Iraqi, Canadian and Mexican troops are going to be bouncing around NC and I can't imagine for a minute they'd be "greeted" with a big welcome. Liberate North Carolina?? Haha...
  12. I can't help but think there might be a translation issue here? Making a 1,000 dinar bill to a 1 dinar bill is not what we're looking for. Isn't that devaluing the currency even more? (dare I say a LOP) Maybe it's a timing thing.. they make the dinar 1:1 with the USD and then over time drop the zeros? Or, they drop the zeros first and then make the dinar 1:1... that would make our 25k's just enough to buy a extra large pizza. I certainly don't want to believe that. I think we need a little more clarification on this conjunction junction translation malfunction. 🙄
  13. Holy! The guy in the front of the line sure looks amazingly over-fed. Here's a military plan... throw donuts at them.
  14. § 987. Branch transactions. In the case of any taxpayer having 1 or more qualified business units with a functional currency other than the dollar, taxable income of such taxpayer shall be determined— Is this the corporations we set up? (business units) USCO is a calendar year taxpayer. UK is a QBU for section 987 purposes and conducts a foreign trade or business in pounds with a Pound functional currency for both U.S. GAAP and U.S. federal income tax purposes. USCO complies with section 987 based on the method set forth in the 1991 proposed regulations. Ordinary income or loss. Section 987 gain or loss is ordinary income or loss for Federal income tax purposes. It sounds like they are extending tax rules out a few years just to make sure they get their cut of money?? (as they always do... )
