  1. Goldie Girl was an asset to DV, especially with Warka-related issues and questions. Her information was accurate. We're friends on another site. I asked her where she'd been and she said she had been banned from DV. I'm uncomfortable sharing the details of her story because it's her story to tell if she decides. Huge loss, though. Although I appreciate the need for forum rules and support enforcement, it's odd to me that a paying and contributing customer of DV, with accurate information that helped so many members, could be banned from a service - a service and product for which they paid hundreds of dollars, if not more. Goldie Girl was a platinum member, and had purchased other services, too. She wasn't one of those non-invested, freeloading trolls who come here only to poke fun and inflame those of us who take this opportunity seriously. If you're a paying customer who's bought multiple DV services and products that carry lifetime benefits, then you shouldn't be banned from this forum, in my opinion. If I as the customer decide to sever my business relationship and walk away from a business, that's a different thing. But a business can't sell and promise me lifetime services and then choose to walk away from me - at least not without compensation. Even if it were permissible, it'd be both bad business and bad ethics. I've supported DV, paid for its services, and have been positive in my comments on this forum. But Goldie Girl's banning is one decision that I felt extremely uncomfortable with and do not support. Certain members didn't like her because she was frank and direct. I'm not saying I always agreed with her but she told it like it was - and she was right most of the time. She wasn't here for selfish reasons, either. She's a bit of a detective, too, and knew/knows stuff. At this point, I'd be surprised if she'd rejoin DV even if the issues between her and DV were resolved to everyone's satisfaction. That's my . I don't know about the other members. I do miss Rayzur, too - she was another one who shared thought-provoking insights and good information.
  2. This info was very, very helpful to me, phlip - thanks or the post!!
  3. Razur, thank you for your very well-thought out and gracious reply. I appreciate the compassion behind your response. And after reading your comment, I believe we share a similar position. I also acknowledge how many years it takes for the human brain to fully develop; especially the frontal lobe, which is highly impressionable even throughout adulthood and can be weakened by such things as stress hormones and lack of sleep, for example, compromising one's decisions. I'm particularly sensitive to this issue for two reasons: 1) Within hours of Sandy Hook (which is really the topic of this thread) news casters were straining to associate asperger's as a trigger as to why the gunman did what he did (if you believe there was a gunman; I myself am still undecided). In fact, the news media very quickly started backing down and went into damage control when they became aware of how utterly ignorant, baseless, insensitive and dangerous their on-air comments really were. 2) I'm realizing that very few people even have a rudimentary understanding of autism and aspergers. Many of these people become quite self-righteous in their interaction with me as a parent, chalking up my child's sometimes challenging behavior to a bratty, spoiled, disrespectful kid; some of these people are in my family - they approach this from a purely behavioral perspective; they don't get it, and what's worse, I'm not sure that they care enough to try to educate themselves on the matter. Its not my job to educate them. I mean, you can lead a horse to water but... So the role my wife and I have taken with our son is to be his biggest supporters, to believe in him no matter what, and to be his protector and advocate no matter what. I'll guard and protect him against anyone or any power - I don't care if its his grandparents, educators, or the government; matters not to me. However, while all of that is true regarding my role, I'm also making sure that he receives speech therapy, occupational therapy, and behavior therapy every week so he can use and direct his mind to understand this world and enjoy life, and make a valuable contribution to society in a way that fulfills his unique gifts. I take full responsibility for my son, 100%. Which means I won't let him be exposed to influences that could potentially damage his mind and brain because I know he filters the world in a very different way than me. He won't be playing violent video games. And he won't be left to run with kids who do. You can know right now that I will always be very involved in his life - I will know about every family and kid he wants to befriend. And if their standards and values differ in a way that will be detrimental in any way to my son, then we will find healthier options. I guess I'm rambling on at this point in the effort to support your comments, and also to support any parent on the forum who is in a similar situation as me. When this thing RVs, it would be a pleasure becoming better acquainted.
  4. Razur, there are only a few people whose opinions I semi-regularly scan on this forum; yours is one of them. And I rarely comment/respond to posts. But as a father of child on the autistic spectrum, it'd be a dishonor to my son if I didn't respond this time. To profile these children as mass murderers is an unfortunate and dangerous assertion. It's like saying that black males could never be effective fighter pilots because they have less evolved brains. Anyone who thinks or believes that an autistic spectrum person is psychotic, a sociopath, or prone to becoming a mass murder is simply ignorant at best or maliciously prejudice at worst. With about 1 in 86 kids being diagnosed along the autistic spectrum these days, there should be gun-wielding children/youth taking out their classmates in schools across the country every day according to your theory. And to make another point, there are millions of people in the United States who play Call of Duty, Modern Warfare, Halo, etc who don't go around shooting people in real life. I'm not saying these games are wholesome, but I've enjoyed Call of Duty from time to time, and guess what? I don't own a gun nor do I want one in the house (and I'm a Republican who supports the NRA). I'm also not suggesting that I have the answer(s). But one thing I know for sure is this: To paint a red target on autistic-spectrum boys is completely out of line and grossly irresponsible. And when people attack my son and other children like him, I'll call them out every single time. I realize this isn't a professional forum filled with experts in the child development field, and that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion regardless of whether it is informed, but there are times when dangerous statements are made, and I believe your statement is one of them because there's bound to be someone who reads it and believes "OMG, autistic kids are killers!" Mental illness is mental illness, whether you're a kid who takes a gun to school and does the unthinkable or a mother who drowns her kids in the bath tub because the voices in her head told her to. I don't know you, Razur, and I certainly mean no disrespect. Nor is it my intention to pick a fight with anyone. But as a dad who has first hand experience with these precious children, I won't let these comments pass unaddressed when I see them. Peace.
  5. You hit the nail on the head, Thaiexpat. The argument here is following due process legally. Any United States citizen who is suspected of crimes, is to be extradited back to the United States for trial. Period. End of story. This is not open to a debate. It doesn't matter what anyone on this forum thinks or believes regarding the crime in question. I have no idea who that man was or his son - I don't know the story. But IF they were United States citizens, and if they were involved in criminal activity - and maybe they were, I don't know - then they are to be arrested and extradited back to the United States for trial. Following any other process than this is murder at best and vigilante justice at worst. Either way, the laws of our Republic were not followed if these two people were indeed United States citizens. We the people need to do everything within our political and legislative power to uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, and hold accountable whomever breaks them. Those are my two cents. We are heading down a very dangerous, dangerous road.
  6. This is true - I know from first hand experience. There was a friend of the family who went down that road and led a few in my family in doing the same. When it was all said and done, he (the leader) was put in jail for two years, and my other family members faced penalties and interest that totaled thousands and thousands of dollars; one of them almost lost his business over the matter - and there's ongoing involvement with the IRS to this day that might still involve fines and interest in the six figures; this has been going on for over 6 years, too. So, "those people" who make such claims regarding a voluntary tax system may indeed be correct. But I can tell you from experience that when one actually puts it into practice, you will face consequences that you will wish you never faced. Some might get away with it, but not most. It is what it is. So it's better to use the tax and asset protection strategies that are legal in order to manage this situation - the ones that Adam talks about in the VIP section. Those are my two cents. Everyone has to decide for themselves. Peace.
  7. Yep, he's gone. Last time he was here he got tarred, feathered, and flamed - it was brutal. I've tried to get in touch with him but have received no response. In my opinion, he's the only one who has really known all along what is happening with this speculative investment. Would love to hear his thoughts to see where he thinks we're headed. Dr. J., if you're reading this, then know that there is a group of people on this forum who would very much appreciate hearing from you.
  8. Hi Adam, two questions: 1) What's your vision for VIP members if a free float scenario comes true - is this one of the contingencies you planned for? 2) In your opinion, could the United States financial institutions that exchange currency, require us to exchange our IQD during a short time window? Thus forcing us to "cash-in" our IQD at rock bottom rates (rates between .1 to .10) so that they can have all of the old dinar and ride the wave to $1+ and then exchange the old notes for new notes themselves at some point within the 2 year window that the CBI has said it will allow? Thanks! SinjinWolf.
  9. Hi Adam. What are your thoughts about the article(s) this week saying that the zeroes can't be deleted in 2013 - that it will be 2014? I don't think any of this information came from the CBI. Regarding articles, etc., should we only follow information the CBI releases? Thanks. Sinjin.
  10. Not sure who Keylime is, or Dinar Detectives for that matter, but I'm pulling this post over from today because, from the articles I've read these past few months, I think this offers a pretty good summary of what happened to the IQD and the process to revalue. It's sort of like a cliff notes version of the whole thing. But I'm always interested in hearing other people's thoughts & perspectives because I think everyone's point of view creates a more accurate picture of what's happening. ==== {Post starts here:} "#1 - The Iraqi dinar was ARTIFICIALLY devalued when Sadam attacked Kuwait, therefore it went from $3.22 (and no that wasnt just Sadam’s rate) back in the 1980′s to less than it even is now… which means it can be REVALUED over 100% at anytime to give it back its former “glory” so to speak. #2: they have stated that the current zero notes will be good for another 10 years of exchange (so demonetizing the “old” currency is not going to happen like it would in a normal LOP scenerio where they give you 45 days to turn it in or your screwed, which also means this scenerio is not normal on any level). #3:They have to change the current currency to the new “3 language” notes whether they revalue or not because they share their gov’t with Kuwait and the 2003 notes did not take them into account. Thus the reason for changing the notes a LOP is not the reason for them changing the current currency. “Dedollarization” will occur naturally when they raise the value of their money to equal or above the US dollar. In this case “zeroes” are important because when the new 3 language currency is released they have been printed with the revaluation they plan on (which they have stated the 2013 budget is written with the new value) otherwise why even talk about Lower Denominations if you are not going to raise the actual value of the currency just print new 3 language notes with 3 zeroes on them and be done with it. #4: As you can see this whole affair has no precedent and therefore cannot be looked at by past scenerios. Wipe the black board clean because this is a whole new equation. Never happened before that a country with this kind of wealth has had their currency artificially devalued over 1000% then the super powers (not countries but the “real” people in charge..THE BANKERS) put together a plan to bring that country back to prominence with debt forgiveness, wealth protection, instituting a government(democracy) that they never had or would have if left to their own devices (think religious leaders in charge..MULLAHS), and a world wide need for their riches (oil, gold, diamonds, platinum, natural gas, etc. and just as important, Geographic location) Location, location, location. Iraq has it all, and the world is all in on this one. None of this spells the dreaded LOP. The only real fact here is, in the history of the world there has never been a country like Iraq, at the time it exists now, with the potential and backing it enjoys(politically, financially, etc.). Therefore this event we all here have invested in is UNPRECEDENTED! But don’t take my word for it, time will be the ultimate revelator." {End post} ===== The point that sticks out to me that's easy to forget is that pre-Sadam, the IQD value was stronger than the USD going all the way back to the 1950s - maybe even back to the 1930s, if my memory serves me correctly. Have a great weekend everybody! :)
  11. Hi Adam, do IRS agents or other U.S. Federal officers use/monitor this site? What's your opinion on the matter? And what precautions should we take if any? Thanks, Sinjin.
  12. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and comments - I'm enjoying this conversation and the various perspectives being presented. And it's helping me to keep a level head, too -- I'm hopeful and encouraged (as we all are I'm sure) but I'm not losing mind (at least over this!). Thank you!! PS - I would still like to find the Frank's website that Easy mentioned.
  13. Hey Easy, how would one find Frank's site? Not sure you're allowed to share a link. So, what should I google to find him? Thanks for your comment. Sinjin
  14. Agreed, NWGUY! Hopefully this leads to Thanks for sharing more about who he is. This makes his opinion an opinion that I would at least listen to. It would be great if he's right!
