  1. In that case, every time a currency changed the value on forex it could be considered an RV. What Kap is talking about is technically called a float. If the USD changed 10 cents, every penny change would be considered an RV by your definition and would have RVd 10 times. If you took it out to the third decimal place (forex takes it out further) it would have RVd 1000 times for every penny then the USD would have RVd 10,000 times with a ten cent change. To save time and sanity, they call it a float. If the dollar today was 90 cents and tomorrow the Feds said the dollar is worth 1.20 then it would be an RV. A float is controlled by the market in most cases. An RV is done by the government or CBI. Unless you have a government/cbi controlled float that is another discussion for another day.
  2. CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION BY THE NUMBERS January 16, 2019 by Lindy Lowry in Persecution updates The 2019 World Watch List report is based on comprehensive and investigative research of 150 countries where Christians are persecuted for their faith. Each year, our research reveals telling numbers and statistics that give us a glimpse at the depth, prevalence and widespread reach of the persecution believers endure. Below, we share a quick glance at the numbers during the 2019 reporting period (from Oct. 31, 2017, to November 1, 2018). But by no means do the numbers tell the full story. Each fact and figure represent real people with real lives, families, jobs, churches—fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, daughters—who every day make the dangerous choice to believe in and trust Jesus. IN A YEAR (from October 31, 2017 to November 1, 2018) People from different religions, various organizations gathered at the Indonesian Christian Church to pray for the nation in light of the 2018 church bombing in Surabaya. Every month, 105 churches are attacked, vandalized or burned in the top 50 countries on the World Watch List. 245 Million: In the top 50 World Watch List countries alone, 245 million Christians in the world experience high levels of persecution for their choice to follow Christ. 1 in 9: Christians worldwide experience high levels of persecution 14%: The rise in the number of Christians in the top 50 countries on the 2019 World Watch List (WWL) who experience high levels of persecution. (from the 2018 reporting period to 2019’s) 4,136: Christians killed for faith-related reasons in the top 50 WWL countries. 2,625: Christians detained without trial, arrested, sentenced and imprisoned in the top 50 WWL countries. 1,266: churches or Christian buildings attacked in the top 50 WWL countries. 7 out of 9: In seven of the countries in the World Watch List’s top 10, the primary cause of persecution is Islamic oppression. 11: countries scoring in the “extreme” level for their persecution of Christians. Five years ago, North Korea was the only one. 18: Consecutive years North Korea has ranked No. 1 as the world’s most dangerous place for Christians. Watch the 2019 World Watch List video below: EVERY MONTH 105: churches attacked, burned or vandalized each month, in the top 50 WWL countries EVERY DAY 11: Christians killed every day for their faith, in the top 50 WWL countries. BY THE CONTINENT 1 out of 6: Christians in Africa that experience high levels of persecution. 1 out of 3: Christians in Asia that experience high levels of persecution. 1 out of 21: Christians in South America who experience high levels of persecution.

To help you pray with these believers, Open Doors has a mobile prayer app that alerts you to prayer requests from believers.

In the wake of the New Zealand massacre Christian persecution continues everyday but yet there is no outrage or Christianophobia or Jewishophobia. Only Christian and Jewish hatred. Remember the arabic name for slave is also the color for black: eabd.
  3. Since when did AOC visit the USSR? Since when has AOC espouse and extol the virtues of communism and whose hero is Carl Marx? Who before AOC was a glimmer in mamma’s eye was extolling the praises and trying to bring communism here to America? Soros? Yes but a discussion for another day. Bernie Sanders is the grandfather of the modern day whack jobs. AOC’s wackiness comes from the same lineage as the last whack job thought there was 57 states in the US and married a tranny.
  4. While most know AOC was a bartender, not many know she was a struggling actress who was bartending to pay the bills. Her current acting gig, and i do emphasize acting, was the result of her auditioning for her current role in the house by some very wealthy people. These same people then created the democratic socialist party which did not exist until AOC ran. Some say it is Soros, but whether or not it is or is not Soros, the election proved that an actress who auditioned for a part in what she thought was a play on broadway was able to win the part and get a cast into a role on the world’s largest stage. While her beliefs shine through her acting, there are times her directors have lost control of the thespian. For example the infamous boss comment. In actors speak this is called improv You would be correct if you were thinking this has been tried before only to fail but it only takes one to create change and two to make a pattern. 0bummer might have been the first.
  5. Well, it equals 2.857. That .003 matters when you get into 7 or 8 figures. At 10 million IQD that .003 is a matter of 30K US dollars. Or in its equivalent form, almost for a mid-sized sedan. Or one year's worth of education (Depending on the school of choice, for some it is not even a semester's worth) for a daughter or granddaughter. Or roughly 16K Butterfinger candy bars.
  6. 25 dollars for one bag is if it is under the prescribed weight. Go over that weight and the amount exponentially increases by the pound. 25 dollars ain't nothing when your bag weighs one pound over the cap because then you have to throw things away just to board the plane on time. Oh and the fee is minimal, for 1 pound over, 100 dollars or more. They are now starting to weigh check on bags and setting a weight limit to them. If over the weight limit, the onboard bag goes below.
  7. Many cultures view the moon as important. It was considered important long before Islam. In the Bible the moon appears as the god Baal. In the Kabah the black rock contains a room with 360 gods and Baal is the number one god or the head honcho. They cover the rock because of this aspect of the Kabah. You find Islam stole a lot of things from both the New and Old Testaments to create Islam. American Indians also go by the moon as did many of the North and South American cultures went by the moon to tell certain aspects of the year. Early navigation was done at night and the moon also played a vital role. The moon (And the planet Venus, which was thought of a star early on. Venus appears in the sky at dusk which is what the symbol of Islam is the quarter moon and the planet Venus. Even today some think that Venus is a star as noted by Disney's song or the simple rhyme Star light star bright First star I See tonight) was hijacked by Islam. Go figure something else hijacked by Islam.
  8. It took the republicans to vote for and pass civil rights and the demonRats to destroy it
  9. DemonRAts haven't changed their tune in all that time. they still the most racist SoBs of the bunch.
  10. And its been 156 years since the Emancipation Proclamation. And the DemoRAts haven't changed their tune one bit they are still the most racist sobs of the bunch.
  11. Mixed news but the natural gas is to be expected since winter is winding down and most have already bought their LNG for the remainder of the winter and could be seasonal lows in a period of low demand. Look for LNG to pop up as we head into spring. Basrah heavy is what Iraq sells and has spiked from a low this year of 58.44 to its current high of 64.47. Hopefully, it won't correct more than a third of its upswing or at least stays above 62.
  12. Or...some mood music for your reading pleasure
