  1. Hate is ugly no matter what side, culture, religion we find ourselves in. To paint any culture or religion with such a broad brush is simple minded and reckless. I am ashamed for both people in the discussion as presented. It is likely they will both find their demise. The law of affinity states that like attracts like. This seems to fit that model. Pathetic on all accounts.
  2. One thing that has become blatantly apparent to me, is that our political system is sick and suffers from a personality disorder. It is at the mercy of it's own collective ego. Yes it is collective. We react and defend our positions on both sides of the aisle with such fervor that I believe we forget sometimes what the heck we were arguing in the first place. We fight to win our point just to hear ourselves. We celebrate indecision and monotony if it means someone else didn't get "their" way. These terribly unconscious choices lead to actions that just promote drama. It's like some kind of new drug or high that we have become accustom to. We are addicted to it. It is evident in our politics. It is obvious in this dinar investment and studying the division within Iraq and even our beliefs within one another. It is rampant in our homes, in marriages, in the business world, and in the things we find entertaining. It is overflowing with religion. Something is clearly out of whack. It is time to become conscious. It starts by each of us recognizing it within ourselves...like shining a flashlight on an unsuspecting cockroach in the dark. It is time to change our paradigm. Will you have the strength to do it? Will I? Ron Paul represents to me the fundamental principles to do so. He speaks the truth. He is incorrigible. He fights for liberty. He believes in his fellow man and country. He believes that ideas are the solution to everlasting change and not money or guns or power over others. Everywhere we look (we or someone else), are trying to control and manipulate something/someone else. That blowback causes us to react, doesn't it? That reaction adds more fuel to the fire and pretty soon there is a raging fire. It will burn forever unless forgiveness and empathy find its way in. It is time to change our paradigm. Ron Paul is a man of conviction. He is the picture I have in my head of what the true founding fathers must have been like. I have no idea where it may lead to.... but, I will support the truth over bs any day. Even if it takes us to the unknown or unfamiliar. Sometimes we should run towards that which we fear because something is telling us it is time to change. If you aren't changing then you aren't growing. It is time to evolve. I welcome it because I am tired of this other broken same ol' same ole from both Republicans and Democrats. Just one man's long winded opinion. Be well and prosperous my friends.
  3. Did we go into Egypt? No. Did we go into Yemen? No. We did go into Libya after the uprising but Ghaddafi is gone now. Are we going into Syria? No. Will that dictator be gone soon? Yes. Power is truly in the citizens of those countries hands if they have the courage to exercise that power. The Middle East is changing the old paradigm on their own... hopefully for the better. It will be a slow change but hopefully a democratic one. The people of Iran want that thug gone. He made it by the skin of his teeth last time. The youth of that nation want peace. The scales are weighing in their favor each new day. I think if any change is going to happen it will happen from within like we have just witnessed. If the people need help then we go in and help. When we leave Iraq... old Maliki won't have long in office in my opinion either unless he changes his ways real quick.
  4. Hey guys... I think this is actually the opposite news we want to hear. The 2 decimal statement I believe is referring to "double digit" inflation concerns. Shabibi is basically calling Maliki to the carpet in this article and I doubt it will go over well with that tyrant. He is telling Maliki that his government is wasteful and corrupt and that if the GOI doesn't get their act together that he will have to use his "tools" of exchange rate and interest rate modification to combat inflation. The GOI needs to promote growth and investment and they are hindering it. Iraq still has to import most of the goods (aside from oil) and that creates a huge trade imbalance. Iraq needs to be creating new industry of goods and services to NOT be so one dimensional on oil. They are at the mercy of the world's rising import prices which adds fuel to the fire of the poor management of Iraq's revenue controlled by the GOI (Maliki)! So Shabs is actually threatening to lower the exchange rate and increase interest rates to combat inflation. Crazy I know. I want this as bad as everyone but Maliki is running this ship into the ground. Positive signs or articles to watch for are: 1. Amendment to the Investment Law of 2006 2. Increasing bank guarantee abilities for foreign investment 3. Significant infrastructure progress in particular with electricity 4. HCL passing and watching for citizen and local government dividends 5. Removal of Chapter 7 6. Modification arrangements with Kuwait regarding the debt to them being contingent on Ch. 7 7. Increased Iraqi lending opportunities for citizens 8. Filling final Ministry appointments 9. Introducing of the 100,000 notes and 50,000 notes into the currency 10. Maliki's eventual forced removal from office
  5. Modifying the Investment law of 2006 and 2009 will finally help open the doors of investment to Iraq beyond oil and construction contracts. This law is the key cog in the development of Iraq and the ability for the Dinar to appreciate. The more foreign currency that comes into Iraq the more it will FORCE the exchange rate up!!! This will also promote imports into Iraq. I am hoping... that because they need so much, that it will also encourage new industry growth within Iraq at the same time. Something that importing usually would be inverse in economics. Iraq has such a perfect storm brewing they may capture the best of all worlds and worry later. That is my hope! Keep watching for these investment law articles. They are paramount to your RV!
  6. So if we fight in the name of God and they fight in the name of God... Please remind me whose side God is on? Whether in war or over a place to pray... it's the humans on both sides of arguments messing it all up. They are at the mercy of their own egos either way... you know, the one internal voice that always says "I AM RIGHT and I WILL CONTROL THIS". It was the deal we made with God for free will and the gift of choice. If you allow hatred to course through your veins then will forgiveness ever be given a chance to work the miracles of God? God will not intervene in your battles or their battles based on the choices and decisions made by the other... but he will through the gifts of forgiveness. Through pin holes of LIGHT that shine through that YOU have the opportunity to rip wide open to let more LIGHT through should YOU choose to do so. The gifts are given to you as opportunities amidst the choices. Don't cover or sew the holes up. Rip them open. If you had to choose one of your children to live over another... Which one would you choose? If one of your children creates a heinous crime should all of your children be condemned because of it? Please tell me which ones? Why is this any different? Does God paint hate and judgment with such a broad brush as us humans? Forgiveness is for you... the Forgiver. It is to release you from something that will eat you alive, that will destroy your joy and your ability to love fully and openly. Apply that to your life and see the world through the eyes of a different LIGHT. I am not saying you can't defend yourself or another. It is to the degree that we take our actions after the initial defense. If you take it to a complete control or dominion then the victim or hero becomes the tyrant. If hate and total judgment creeps in your soul or community or culture collectively... then YOU lose. WE lose. Case in point...Politics. You can't move forward consciously or productively then because you have created new walls, new enemies, new barriers for your future. Live in the present. Make choices in the present. Not based on the future or the past. Sooner then later this whole world will figure this out. I sincerely hope it is sooner than later. Sorry for the pulpit... I saw it as an opportunity to change a perception. My apology to anyone if you were offended by it.
  7. It is about time! I have been saying for 2 years that nothing will change in Iraq until they amend the Investment Law of 2006. This is huge! In order to sustain and promote growth in Iraq the numerous issues had to be addressed for both foreign investment as well as creating a fair environment to Iraqi business people themselves. Foreign investors have specific lending and tax advantages over Iraqi entrepreneur's right now. Not only that... foreign investors have stayed away because of bank guarantees. The banks can't handle the size of guarantees necessary for these large corporations as it sits today. Currency convertibility has been a problem too and is related. Their are many issues needing to be remodeled in the investment law. Hopefully they hit them all. I have been waiting forever for this move. This is a key cog that has been missing I promise you!
  8. So Mr. Maliki... Have you just given your blessing for this method of tyrant disposal? If so... Should you be concerned that you're next? Just curious.
  9. Add this to the things I've learned on this site. Or...Oar...Are All completely interchangeable.
  10. Hey Umbertino... Eckhart is one of my favorite continual reads. I often view the numerous characters in these Dinar forums through the eyes and words of Eckhart. So many unconscious folks at the mercy of their egos and they have no idea. The ones with presence surely do stand out though. Not that I am present all the time. That's why I have to keep re-reading his stuff. Have a great day my friend. PS... Now that you have entered that rabbit hole you will find it takes you to even more amazing depths of understanding. Not sure if you have ever dove into the science aspect of it or not... but quantum physics and zero point energy was the next realm my studies evolved to. You might try "The Field" by Lynne McTaggart. Mind blowing revelations. It wasn't the easiest of reads at first, but wow once you get into it.
  11. Although corruption is a nightmare in Iraq... this is all a lie and a set-up. The Trade Bank of Iraq was the most well managed most sophisticated bank in all of Iraq. It represented Iraq's future. This is Maliki's corruption in reverse. He made up all of this because of his hatred for one of his political rivals Chalabi. I have told you all along that Maliki wants to keep Iraqi's dumb, poor, and needy. That makes them crave his power in his ridiculous mind. This is all a lie and in my mind these actions in time against the TBI will be what eventually brings Maliki down and will expose him for the fraud and dictator want-a-be that he is. Maliki doesn't want an RV. He is your gremlin in this investment. If he can do this to the TBI... imagine who might be next on his list. Hint it rhymes with Plahpeebi.
  12. These turds would make a good ruse in a "Don't Do Meth"... public service address. Bunch of paranoid nut bags.
  13. Automag.... :bow: Couple things though... 1st... Kurds are professional fence sitters and only move at the last second and are notorious for shifting sides depending on which way the wind blows. They are spineless jellyfish for the most part. This is the same poker face we have seen from them before and they are using Allawi as a pawn to get Maliki to sign off on the HCL as written. 2nd... I have not ruled out that the Kurds will just try to secede from Iraq and become the Republic of Kurdistan. This is all too real of a scenario in my opinion. I commend Allawi for being the thorn in Maliki's foot all the time. Maliki is a fraud and a thug. A sniper is the only thing that will eventually stop that jack wagon. He has so many enemies who knows what side it will come from.
  14. 4 years ago I thought people were nuts voting for this guy... But Nowadays, I am appalled at the candidates the Republican Party has put forth this term. Ron seems to be the only one I have any interest in or believe can make change or shift thinking. He is the only one that talks straight and is not in it for the politics in my opinion. He understands what needs to be done, that sometimes concessions must be made to move forward in divided houses. Not sure the rest get it.
  15. Thanks Carrello! Wow... How fun would it be for all of us to go through an "early" election? I suspect an "early" election measured in Iraq years (similar to reverse dog years) would take approximately 2.5 years after his expulsion. Let the Arab Olympic games begin!
