  1. I remember reading a recent document from the IMF about several countries and Iraq being one of them. In the document, it had frowned on Iraq's reluctance to answer their financial woes with external borrowing of loans from the IMF. I cannot remember the paper and am trying to find it. When I do, I will post it. In the same paper, the IMF did state that making it more viable for investment to happen in Iraq is a key factor to building a robust fiscal framework. I viewed this statement from the IMF as a polite way as saying they are almost at their limit with Iraq's borrowing of external funds
  2. A few years ago, Iraq made several deals with Asiatic countries. Among those countries were the likes of China and South Korea in which Iraq would sell and deliver Iraqi oil to them. At that time South Korea imported 74% from the ME. In January of this year it was reported South Korea is now going to import more oil from the United States in 2020 per the article below. The drop in the dependance on ME oil is not boding well for Iraq who needs the sales to boost their economy. Has China followed suit? All of this is before the coronavirus hit its full stride. Their "painful readjustments" come
  3. Dr. Oz ordered quarantine sex! Baby boom nine months from now! More December babies who will grow up hating Christmas because their b-days are too close to Christmas!
  4. What Iraq does base their oil upon? I already know this answer as I have used those charts when talking about Iraqi oil not Brent crude. I have also been forewarned before this article coming out that due to the political turmoil and the exacerbation of the low price of oil that the powers higher up (above my paygrade like around OS bajillion, more of an expert on Iraq) do not see a rosy picture in Iraq's future. IF intervention is not done "soon" then the outcome might be the non-existence of an Iraq. Meaning there will be no country called Iraq. Like I said before I will wait u
  5. Well the locusts in Pakistan ( little north and east of Africa) were sent to eat up the crops and China is now reeling from that infestation. There is a case to be made we are seeing the Seven Plagues of Egypt currently in the world. We have had drought and famine, locusts are infesting Pakistan and are moving into china. We are seeing a plague descend on the people of the world. Something that just came out today was that 40% of all coronavirus cases were people under 18. (Think first born plague of Egypt) So the theory that this is not affecting children is wrong. But then again
  6. According to CDC, this year's flu season has led to at least 17 million medical visits and 370,000 hospitalizations. CDC found that the percentage of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness increased to 5.2% in the week ending on March 7, up from 5.1% the previous week. The national baseline for those visits is 2.4%. CDC estimated that there have been at least 22,000 deaths related to the flu so far this season. Yeah you should look before you leap, bucko. Just to compare: Coronavirus Cases: 26,684 Deaths: 340
  7. Well since you have done what you always do and I would love nothing more than to keep pointing out your follies, Star Trek and the Borg are calling again.
  8. You keep putting words into my threads so I have to defer that to you.
  9. Why do you keep inserting things that are just not there? No one threatened you. Period. You have a habit of seeing things that just isn't there. It's your nature to do that to try to get other people in trouble and riled up. Do you get your jollies off on it?
  10. And you know that game so well, eh? Good thing I don't have to hide behind the mask of authority.
  11. Nah point proven. Stupidity is a disease in which one cannot cure.
  12. Never said it was specifically for you, I said it was made to prove a point. The point was made long ago. You are stalking people on here and try to get them removed by riling them up. You have broken a thread rule and you said nothing about it. The intent was not a whoop a_s but an exposure because I know many watching this got a huge kick out of your retorts today. Again I did not give you or anyone else a emoji score today or yesterday or even in the last several months. LOL. I had a lot of fun and so did those watching.
  13. Where is your signature line "As always just my opinion". No I never said it was not derogatory. I also never said what I said was derogatory. Again you put words in people's mouths. But then again that is your opinion as always right? Pay more attention.
  14. Shabbs has yet to show any Trump disciple syndrome going on here. Although I do see a lot of Trump derangement syndrome.
  15. MARKETS US MARKETS Where Was the Dow Jones When Obama Took Office? When President Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) continued its credit crisis slump and fell to 7,949.09, the lowest inaugural performance (as measured by percentage drop) for the Dow since its creation in 1896.1 If in the first term of Obama's Presidency, the DJIA rose 73.20% from 7,949.09 as the article suggests, then during the first term the DJIA only rose to approximately 13, 751.93 (1.7320 x 7,949.09) which was approximately only 6
  16. Which market? The sales of automobiles? You made the claim prove it with a source otherwise it is fake news.
  17. OOps! Trump increased the debt by 24% and Obummer increased it by 74%. Looks like Trump does have fiscal responsibility. Next! There is something wrong with those figures in the article but you know and I will let you figure it out.
  18. Let's just not single out one President. Let's get them all in there (at the top ones): US Debt by President by Dollar and Percentage Who Increased the U.S. Debt the Most? Depends on How You Measure It. Share Pin Email Photo by Ron Sachs-Pool/Getty Images BY KIMBERLY AMADEO Updated March 04, 2020 What's the best way to determine
  19. Oh pluh-lease don't bring women and minorities into this as a demonrat. Look at the two remaining candidates and the pool that they started off with. Get real. Demonrats had plenty of voice and plenty of choice. They chose wrong to come at me with that tripe.
  20. Yeah you definitely missed it. Okay lets do Econ 101 for your "tax break". So two drivers are working. One with Lyft and One with Uber (disregard what you personally feel about the two companies). The Lyft driver gets 1 driver per two hours and the Uber driver gets 5 drivers per hour. The Lyft driver makes equal amount of money as the Uber driver. However, when both drivers have one less passenger, the Uber driver is still making money wherethe Lyft driver has no income. Now let's say only the Uber runs a discount on their rides. Both make the same amount until both drivers take
  21. By Oct 2015 Americans could not name a single Obummer accomplishment.
  22. Lol A tax break is only derogatory if you think it is. I see your five or 6 and raise you 283 (As of Oct 31, 2018) only the first 20 months of Trump's Presidency Economic Growth 4.2 percent growth in the second quarter of 2018. For the first time in more than a decade, growth is projected to exceed 3 percent over the calendar year. Jobs 4 million new jobs have been created since the election, and more than 3.5 million since Trump took office. More Americans are employed now than ever before in our history. Jobless claims at lowest level
