  1. I can understand where you're coming from and you make a good point. But it's not about me, there's nothing special about my vocabulary and I make grammatical errors all the time. This was more in response to those who don't have respect for the English language or great minds of the past. Geniuses whose diction I can barely even comprehend. I have always been fascinated by truly talented people like Telsa, Einstein, Mark Twain, Davinici etc. and am frustrated that so much of that seems to be less and less important. Improper grammar is even preferred in many areas. Probably one reason I can't stand rap music. Anyway, I do understand your point but don't see how you would like me to change considering those I admire most always strived for improvement. Thanks for your advice and response though. AMHVL, first of all I read all your posts on all the forums you go to. In fact, I search for them. You have a very balanced approach and have written some amazing posts which I have even saved among my files. So, thank you.
  2. My response to a DD forum member/group discussion. I would love to hear some feedback from DV members letting me know if I'm being too critical or if it is something you have considered as well. Thanks. Stevecrb99: Spare us your from your feeble attempt to use big words. SWFG: Hello Steve, the problem with this generation (among other things) is they don't feel the need to use good grammar and spelling anymore and this is in part bolstered by pop culture. Using proper grammar, spelling and punctuation in your writing can tell a person a lot about you. I believe it's something employers take into consideration also. If you want respect for jobs in the future, for typing a formal writing piece, and also just gaining respect from your fellow investors. Would you hire an attorney or financial advisor who couldn't spell his own name or formulate an intelligent sentence, whether verbally or on paper? Using good spelling and grammar isn't that hard. It's something we should all learn in order to gain respect from others. Please, take this into consideration and I guarantee you will not regret it. This will only benefit yourself and others. It's a shame how much our culture has lost its appreciation of the written word and the affect it can have on others. Do you think if Martin Luther King Jr. wasn't so eloquent he would have made such a positive impact on the civil rights movement? Where would the world be without Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Faulkner, Mark Twain or Ernest Hemingway? This is just my opinion but I have a lot of respect for those who can express themselves well, rather than using slang or profanity to make their point. When you read a post from a guru who claims to be connected to the most powerful people in the world yet can't differentiate between what a plural and a possessive word is, even after being told a thousand times from his or her own friends who are trying to help them gain respect what's your honest initial reaction? To me this shows the lack of ability to adapt, learn and quite frankly how educated you are. We all make typos and grammatical errors. I do it all the time but after a while usually people are able to learn and correct their mistakes. Another concern of mine this brings up is it shows me they don't research as much as they claim to or they would have known how to spell the words they use to make their point. Maybe I'm old-fashioned but I really appreciate an individual who can hold a good conversation and I think proper communication can support a healthy relationship. Creating an exciting vernacular will bring crowds, excitement and controversy to the stage. So, a guru with half a brain should realize maybe it's worth the effort after all and could increase his/her following. If none of this appeals to you at least consider this, women love poetry and a man who can hold a good conversation. Men are for the most part horrible expressing their feelings where Women have the ability to see the hidden intricacies Men often overlook. Women are somehow able to completely understand the true meaning, whether it is hidden or exposed to them its romantic. In conclusion, if you're a guru looking to broaden your audience or a single man hoping sweep a girl off her feet. If she were to recite to you her favorite poem or favorite author's quote, I would recommend that you try on a response that differs from your previous one where you said "Spare me your from your feeble attempt to use big words." Just a thought and I hope you have a great night sir.
  3. Well-said Nelg and thank you. I thought I was gonna wake up this morning to a million angry people attacking me. I can't handle that before my coffee. Good luck with your sermon buddy.
  4. I just had this very discussion after reading 12thman's latest post. Please understand that I am very respectful of and support everyone's right to their faith. That's one of the things that makes this country great and what I'm about to comment on is in no way an attack against Christianity or any other religion for that matter. My Dad wrote the book Collapse of Evolution, has a PHD and has lectured all over the country in support of Christianity but approaches proving creationism from a scientific point of view. My Mom is one of the leading Christian artists in the world and has been published by National Geographic and her paintings on the Underground Railroad series are found in almost every classroom history book in the U.S. I really try to avoid this topic but here it goes: 6-2-13 SWFG: Thanks for bringing in the rumor RVsoonPlease, that's exactly what this section is for. Here's my personal apriorism toward certain posts like this. First of all, I am a Christian, grew up in private schools my whole life until I was 16. I am proud of those have the guts to share their faith with others. However, I don't believe that someone should use God to back up their rumors. In fact, I find it offensive. 1 Timothy 6:10: "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows." Many gurus claim to be prophets and use this as a tool to gain many followers (often great individuals), who are falling for this fourberie. When a prediction is made and the ratiocination behind the prediction is because God wants us all to become millionaires overnight it just blows my mind. Think of how many potentially evil, powerful and very wealthy people would also profit from this and potentially use it to accumulate even more power to further their cause. If you remember, Jesus wasn't the biggest fan of money changers. During the cleansing of the temple he expelled them all, accusing them of turning the Temple into a den of thieves through their commercial activities. I respect everyone's right to their beliefs and have absolutely no right to push my personal beliefs on anyone else. I'm simply stating my own personal opinion that God is not here to be our Sugar Daddy. Saying a prayer before a call, before you go to bed, praying for loved ones or anything else for that matter is something I respect. But I don't like seeing God used as an apparatus at the end of every rumor, when it is clearly being used to gain support for their unsubstantiated claims. I'm not going into this subject again. I realize it's one that people feel very strongly about but I felt compelled to just this once offer my feelings on the subject. That's not to say that God is not in control of this. I hope everyone realizes the distinction I am trying to make here. Thanks
  5. I would love to continue this conversation but frankly you don't seem to be capable of asseverating your opinions in a civil matter and honestly it's not going to be constructive to this forum if we continue what is clearly something not headed in the direction of a friendly repartee and I don't want to say something I know I'll regret later. So I wish you the best and you are certainly entitled to your opinion that we will never prosper from this and you are here wasting your time. So, have a great night Skeptic.
  6. Response to Skeptic: First of all, thank you for taking the time to compose a well-thought out response. However, we do seem to be going in circles here but I'll do my best to elaborate on some very labyrinthine topics you raised. 1. That is correct (in part) I did pass along a claim backed up by several articles and see no reason why I should have refrained from doing so. Gold is the most valuable thing in the world, the reason being it is not going to lose its value in the near future, and even during inflation, the prices of gold go up. Fiat money often loses its value in the long run. A large amount of USD most likely worth as much a few years from now. On the other hand if you buy gold for $100 it may be around $200 to $300 + 5 to 10 years from now (possibly sooner). This is why nations such as Iraq stock pile gold. Gold is recognized in every country all over the world as legal tender. Gold has a profound impact on the value of world currencies. As a commodity gold can act as a substitute for fiat currencies and be used as an effective hedge against inflation. There is no doubt that gold will continue to play an indispensable role in the foreign exchange markets. It has the unique ability to represent the health of both local and international economies. Gold is a currency, although it is not customarily thought of as one. It can be bought and stored, and while it is not often used as a direct payment method, it is highly liquid and can be converted to cash in almost any currency with relative ease. Also, to add to your first question, I've never heard of solid research being accomplished in 5 minutes. 2. Actually, we've been witnessing the IQD appreciate for quite some time now. I agree the rate of growth is fairly picayune but nonetheless it is still improving and according to the Finance Committee and the CBI, it will continue to do so. You said there is in fact evidence to the contrary that the IQD will appreciate. Please provide your evidence that supports an IQD depreciation in inevitable. 3. I've said many times I have failed to produce a convincing annotation concerning this issue. In fact, it is a concern I have myself and have mentioned that 3 or 4 times in former posts. I hope my answers to your questions were adequate because I do appreciate it when someone offers up their own theory rather than just attack others. Thank you for taking the time to have this discussion with me and hopefully something constructive came out of it.
  7. Skeptic I asked you a few questions. I was kind enough to answer yours. Are you unwilling to answer mine?
  8. Bumper I swear that is the most judicious thing I have ever heard anyone say in Dinar Land. Thank You. How bout some really good sushi?
  9. Permit me to ask you a few questions Skeptic. What exactly DO you believe? Do you believe Iraq will one day recovery economically? Do you believe they will have a strong and valuable currency eventually? Do you believe there is any way we can profit from this at all?
  10. You make a good point and really I guess no one can say indubitably how far they have progressed. However, I do like this quote: "Early in 2012 there was a large discovery of Gold in eastern Baghdad. The last couple years have produced large quantities of gold through their vast drilling operations and have already surpassed the purification and extraction process. This discovery, among others, could turn Iraq into a producer of gold more than oil. It also will increase real estate prices due to the influx of gold job seekers." For heavens sake. Really? Do I or do I not also say these are just my opinions, which may or may not be correct? I need some Aspirin, can anyone in the forum hook a brotha up?
  11. Skeptic: So, now in addition to calling me a pumper, you're taking statements from articles I present and claim they are pumpers also. I was not the author of that article. *Thanks Zigmeister*
  12. You claim I pulled those opinions out of thin air or made them up. Whether you agree or disagree with any of these reports, they were not written by me. I simply pass them along. Yes, it is true that I may read the same article you do and envisage a more positive outlook. That is the nature of speculative investments, human nature and a distinguishing characteristic that makes this forum so interesting.
  13. That is not what has been reported by other sources. In fact, the quite opposite has been reported. I simply look at this as a positive vestige for Iraq in a general sense. Do you disagree with that?
  14. 1-7-13 Iraq Central Bank Boosts Gold Reserves. The monthly statistical report of the International Monetary Fund stated that over the three months between August and October of last year, Iraq’s gold holdings quadrupled to 31 tons, the first time something like this has happened in years. The value of gold as a strategic reserve has grown over the past few years due to the continued instability of the U.S. dollar exchange rate. International banks perceive gold as having long-lasting value that is not affected by rapid economic development. Gold can be used to compensate for insufficient cash reserves in the wake of political or economic crisis. In that context, Iraq is probably the country that is most in need of a great deal of gold reserves given its succession of political and economic crises. “Gold is the first shelter for countries in times of crisis,” said the Iraqi economic analyst Majid al-Suwari.. According to Parliamentary Economic and Investment Committee member Abdul Abass Shiyah, “it is normal for the public not to read between the lines of sharp increases in gold reserves.” “The Iraqi dinar exchange rate is based on the amount of cash reserves, which include not only money but gold as well,” said Shiyah, a member of the Dawlat al-Kanoun parliamentary bloc led by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Gold is the most stable component of official reserves. It will result "in the stability and possibly the improvement of dinar exchange rates," he added. http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/01/iraq-central-bank-gold.html Shiyah reiterated that the public will sense indirectly the impact of the increase in gold reserves. “When the value of imported goods decreases following the increase in the value of the dinar, which directly correlates to the increase of cash reserves, the public will remember the steps the state took to boost gold reserves,” Shiyah added. The Central Bank of Iraq announced in August of last year that cash reserves had reached $67 billion, which is a first in the country that relies entirely on oil exports to finance its budget. “The Iraqi reserve is figuratively described as ‘cash,’ but in fact it has multiple components. Iraq owns U.S. dollars, euros, pounds, gold and different types of securities,” said Shiyah. He added, "The central bank uses a part of its huge reserve to fund major governmental projects. Even though a part of this reserve is disseminated between international banks and benefits Iraq financially, the central bank ought to fund some weighty governmental activities.” Since 2003, Iraq has had an insignificant cash reserve. Some sources state that those who were in charge of the Iraqi economy during the first months following Saddam Hussein's toppling converted a ton of gold, which was the only reserve held by the central bank, into cash. Economic Analyst Majid Suwari said that Iraq's reserves amounted to $39 billion in 1979; however, Saddam’s policies squandered that fortune. In 2003, Iraq's debts reached $125 billion. “The central bank policy is currently based on the diversification of reserves. However, if the policy of purchasing gold had been adopted two years ago when the value of one ounce was about $500 to $600, Iraq would have quadrupled its investment gains,” he added. He concluded that “this initiative started late, but not too late.” Suwari expects the central bank to pursue the policy of increasing gold reserves amid the government's spending tendencies. He clarified that the Iraqi government needs the dinar to cover its huge expenses. The central bank provides it with the necessary Iraqi dinars in exchange for U.S. dollars obtained through the oil trade. Afterwards, the central bank converts dollars to gold. http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/01/iraq-central-bank-gold.html I'm sorry if my posts are too long but would you prefer one paragraph where I state that our gifts come now, there was just an in-country RV then wrap it up with some vague analogy about airplanes? No one's forcing you to read them but I understand that I do tend to ramble on a bit.
  15. "Drowning of citizens and the injury beams health prompted families to remove the elderly from the area and transferred to the suburbs beyond, especially with asthma and shortness of breath." "We did not know the reasons that push to drill here or there but we were surprised during the past two years to begin drilling operations is a natural and extends for several meters deep in the earth except for drilling longitudinal spanning more than ten kilometers, and then to hear from people that topic related to the discovery of gold." "And full of Iraq amounts frightening of oil exporting huge quantities of it to global markets and back with money do not prepare and countless while there are other minerals in smaller quantities, but the discovery of gold in the luxury and commercial quantities could turn Iraq into a producer of gold more than oil, and is expected to increase the prices of real estate in this modest neighborhood with the start of the influx of gold seekers." We all know there is nothing that means Iraq will or must RV. Common sense but have a great day yourself sir. "So you are calling SWFG a pumper now????????? Now YOU have ZERO credibility!" Thanks Quadkidd1.
  16. "Continue drilling operations in the area of luxury Aldajh populated eastern Baghdad after the discovery of the existence of huge quantities of atoms of gold metal in the soil. Was raised thousands of tons of dust, which set aside in order to purification and extraction of gold atoms." "We did not know the reasons that push to drill here or there but we were surprised during the past two years to begin drilling operations is a natural and extends for several meters deep in the earth except for drilling longitudinal spanning more than ten kilometers, and then to hear from people that the subject matter related to the discovery of gold." "And Iraq is full of large quantities of petroleum which Aistvid from the Iraqi people which are exported huge quantities of it to global markets and money returns do not prepare for the Allens and countless citizen any of them, while there are other minerals in smaller quantities." "However, the discovery of gold in the luxury and commercial quantities could turn Iraq into a producer of gold more than oil, and pay the Western countries to re-occupation of as usual through the centuries passed his time, dusty, and is expected to increase the prices of real estate in this neighborhood modest start with the influx of job seekers Gold." There were about 3 articles all saying the same thing. Actually, it's been a constant progression of news on this topic since last year. I have these quotes all saved in my archives. Gimme a sec and I'll try to find the links. Thanks. That's the best thing anyone has said in this entire thread. Rock on.
