Med says to (07:08:55):
THIS IS A GOVT THAT LOVES TO PUT A SHINE ON EVERYTHING

cheeks says to (07:09:01):

Med says to (07:09:13):
AND THEY ARE ALWAYS IN NEUTRAL.OR REVERSE

cheeks says to (07:09:25):

Med says to (07:09:28):
IF ALL WAS SO GREAT.THEN WHY ARE THEY PROTESTING.THIS WILL GET BIGGER AND BIGGER.UNTIL THEY MOVE ON SOME SERIOUS QUICK FIXES.AND FAST.

cheeks says to (07:10:09):

Med says to (07:10:21):
I GIVE THEM 30 DAYS OR IT WILL TURN UGLY

Med says to (07:11:04):
ACTION NEEDS TO BE SWIFT AND MEANINGFUL

stlou says to (07:11:06):
did I read that right Med?

Med says to (07:11:11):
YES STLOU

Med says to (07:11:14):
YOU DID

stlou says to (07:11:18):
pathetic

Med says to (07:11:19):
OR APPROXIMATELY
YES IT IS

stlou says to (07:11:31):
unless..

Med says to (07:11:47):
IF THEY WERE TO REVALUE.IT WOULD BE ADJUSTED DOWN

stlou says to (07:12:08):
correctamundo

Med says to (07:12:10):
I GUARANTEE IT..LOL..THE MAIN ISSUES RIGHT NOW

stlou says to (07:12:32):
I saw something abuot 25% of oil revenue back to the people

Med says to (07:12:33):
ARE SECURITY.BUDGET.MONETARY POLICY.AND MOVING FORWARD ON THE ECONOMY.FOR THE PRIVATE SECTOR

stlou says to (07:13:07):
then deal with the SFC

Med says to (07:13:21):
THEY WILL DEAL WITH THE SFC THIS WEEK

cheeks says to (07:13:32):
get.this..done...or..will...it..become.a.blood...b ath

stlou says to (07:13:37):
good..thhrow the bums out

Med says to (07:13:46):
I AM SURE THAT NUJAIFI HAS TOLD MALIKI.THAT HIS TRICKS ARE OVER.WITH THE SFC

stlou says to (07:14:21):
probably

Med says to (07:14:29):
IT WAS A VERY VERY STUPID MOVE BY MALIKI.AND VERY BAD TIMING ON HIS PART.TO DO IT

stlou says to (07:14:44):
he seems to be a no bu!!sh_t kind of guy

cheeks says to (07:14:52):
maliki.is..whack..in..the..head

Med says to (07:14:59):
BUT NOONE IS GOING TO SAY HE IS THE BRIGHTEST BULB ON THE TREE ANYWHERE

Med says to (07:15:14):
HE IS VERY NO BS IT IS AMAZING

Med says to (07:15:53):
THAT MALIKI IS THE TOTAL DEFINITION OF INSANITY

Med says to (07:16:00):
DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN..AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.MOST PEOPLE ONLY HAVE TO DRIVE A CAR ONCE INTO A BRICK WALL

stlou says to (07:16:35):
and takes no responsibility for anything

Med says to (07:16:35):
TO KNOW NOT TO DO IT AGAIN.NO HE IS DEFINATELY NOT IRAQS HARRY TRUMAN.WHERE THE BUCK STOPS HERE.THIS GUY BLAMES EVERYONE ELSE.BUT WHO PUT THESE MORONS IN PLACE.HE DID
I AM NOT SURE WHAT WILL BE ACCOMLISHED THIS WEEK.BUT IF THEY DON'T COME UP SOME REAL TIME FIXES.THAT THE PEOPLE CAN APPRECIATE..THIS WILL GET BIGGER

stlou says to (07:19:17):
this meeting wit allawi and maliki Med..

Med says to (07:19:18):
AND BIGGER..YES..DUH..WHO KNOWS WHAT WILL COME OF IT

stlou says to (07:19:51):
if I read it correctly..it said they will have a final solution to the differences

Med says to (07:19:58):
SO THEY SAY

stlou says to (07:20:02):
have we not heard this before?

Med says to (07:20:08):
OH SURE WE HAVE.SINCE LAST MAY.AND THEN THE PEOPLE WAIT.AND THEN IT IS A COUPLE DAYS

stlou says to (07:20:32):
but it seems Barzani may be playing a part in this as well..this meeting

Med says to (07:20:34):
THEN NEX WEEK.YES.BUT IT NEEDS TO BE IN PARLIAMENT.AND VOTED ON

stlou says to (07:20:52):
I'm wondering

Med says to (07:21:20):
YES

stlou says to (07:21:24):
well..didn't it say they would bring to parliament what the solution/agreement was?

Med says to (07:21:39):
SO THEY SAY.BUT IT NEEDS TO BE NOW.NOT LATER.NOT ANOTHER WEEK

stlou says to (07:21:52):
that to me would indicate some kind of movement in the right direction

stlou says to (07:21:54):
true

Med says to (07:21:58):
IT NEEDS TO BE SETTLED LIKE RIGHT NOW

stlou says to (07:22:02):
and should've been done months ago

Med says to (07:22:07):
HECK YES

stlou says to (07:22:12):
but...it seems Barzani is MUCH more involved with these discussions now than before/

Med says to (07:22:46):
WHAT HAPPENED WAS THEY NA GOT THEIR NOD.AND THEN TRIED TO USE THE WELL WE REALLY MEANT THIS.NOT WHAT WAS AGREED ON

stlou says to (07:23:03):
which would indicate to me the gravity of the situation

Med says to (07:23:08):
IT IS GRAVE.NOT AS GRAVE YET

stlou says to (07:23:14):
right..

Med says to (07:23:21):
AS TUNISIA OR EGYPT.OR THE OTHER COUNTRIES.BUT IT IS STARTING

stlou says to (07:23:34):
but Barzani wants that oil revenue/HCL done now

Med says to (07:23:42):
HE SHOULD.IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN OVER IN 08

stlou says to (07:24:03):
and that budget holds the key as to what the agreed percent was

Med says to (07:24:04):
NOW HERE WE ARE IN 2011.YES WELL SO HEY SAY BUT THE HCL IS MORE THAN JUST THAT

stlou says to (07:24:33):
how many times has the budget been read? officially?

Med says to (07:24:40):
ONCE.THAT IS IT.THEY HAVE PUT OFF THE 2ND READING FOR OVER A MONTH NOW.NOW IT IS LIKE 5 WEEKS

stlou says to (07:25:19):
that part..does it not list salaries as well?

Med says to (07:25:40):
THEY HAVE SCHEDULED IT AND THEN CANCELLED IT MORE TIMES THAN MY SON WAS TO BE MARRIED

stlou says to (07:25:43):
and they are "adjusting" the top salaries, are they not?

Med says to (07:25:51):
NOPE.NOT YET.IT IS ONLY SOMETHING THAT THEY HAVE CALLED TO BE DONE.NOTHING IS OFFICIAL

stlou says to (07:26:14):
does that not affect the budget..the salaries?

Med says to (07:26:28):
WELL I AM SURE IT DOES.BUT REALLY IT IS NOT THE ISSUE.IT IS A MINOR ONE.AT LEAST FOR THE PEOPLE
THIS IS MORE OF A PARLIAMENT PISSING CONTEST.THAN ANYTHING

stlou says to (07:27:05):
but some may not vote because of these things..just throwing that out

Med says to (07:27:07):
THE PEOPLE COULD CARE LESS.YES THAT IS TOTALLY TRUE.BUT LIKE I SAID IT IS NOT AN IRAQI STREET ISSUE

stlou says to (07:27:26):
but these screwballs may

Med says to (07:27:45):
IT IS ONLY 3 SALARIES THEY ARE DISCUSSING

stlou says to (07:28:04):
they may despise Maliki so much that they would hold up progress over salaries..just throwing that out

Med says to (07:28:06):
AND EVERYONE OF THEM MAKE MORE THAN OUR PRESIDENT

stlou says to (07:28:20):
and live in palaces

Med says to (07:28:21):
AHHHH.NOT SURE ABOUT THAT ONE.I KNOW NUJAIFI DID..HE HELD UP THE BUDGET.AS LEVERAGE.AGAINST MALIKI.MALIKI'S HANDS WERE TIED

stlou says to (07:29:07):
so..these salaries may be playing a larger role than we think?

Med says to (07:29:11):
UNLESS THE BUDGET GETS PASSED.WELL NUJAIFI'S SALARY IS ONE OF THE 3

stlou says to (07:29:39):
nujaifi may be holding the ace here..

Med says to (07:29:45):
THE OTHER TWO ARE MALIKI'S AND TALIBANI

stlou says to (07:29:56):
and waiting for someone to fold

Med says to (07:30:18):
SEE I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE THINKING.I KNOW THEY ARE ALL OVERPAID.EVERYONE IN PARLIAMENT IS ALSO

stlou says to (07:30:36):
right..but nujaifi has no problem in reducing his salary..

Med says to (07:30:54):
THEY MAKE MORE THAN ANYONE IN A SIMILAR POSITION IN THE WORLD.AND MALIKI SAID SO ALSO
I JUST DON'T KNOW THE BEEF THEN.AND TALIBANI DOESN'T SAY SQUAT

stlou says to (07:31:33):
so who proposes the change in teh budget to account for that

Med says to (07:31:45):
ANYONE CAN PROPOSE IT.AND THEN IT GOES TO THE POP

stlou says to (07:32:03):
I haven't seen that anywhere

Med says to (07:32:05):
FOR HIM TO ADDRESS IT TO THE PARLIAMENT.NEITHER HAVE I.THIS SFC THING TOOK CONTROL OF ALL THAT WAS GOING ON.AND SEEMED TO PUT A HOLD ON ALL ELSE

stlou says to (07:33:10):
parliament needs to take back the power Maliki has had for years..

kkmarmjg says to (07:33:19):
What about Allawi's salary?

Med says to (07:33:25):
HE HAS NONE.IT IS NOT AN ISSUE

stlou says to (07:33:42):
and the SFC may be his last stronghold

Med says to (07:33:44):
ALLAWI IS ONLY HEAD OF THE LIST.AND NOT PART OF THE GOI YET

stlou says to (07:34:04):
and allawi's council has not been voted on yet..

Med says to (07:34:05):
NOT UNTIL THEY APPROVE THE STRATEGIC COUNSEL

stlou says to (07:34:12):
why...

Med says to (07:34:17):
CORRECT.WHY WHAT

stlou says to (07:34:34):
why hasn't allawi's council been voted on

stlou says to (07:34:55):
it puts the checks and balances in

Med says to (07:34:56):
BECAUSE THE NA SAYS THEY DIDNT MEAN NOW WHAT ALLAWI THOUGHT WAS AGREED TO.THAT IS WHY.THEY NOW AFTER THEY GOT THE VOTES.ARE SAYING THAT THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT ALLOW FOR ANOTHER PERSON.TO HAVE THE EQUAL POWERS AS THE PM.WELL TOO BAD.THEY AGREED TO IT
NOW THEY ARE USING THE CONSTITUTION

stlou says to (07:36:06):
that could be true Med..but when have they complied with their constitution?

Med says to (07:36:08):
THE CONSTITUTION IS WORHTLESS.I AGREE.I SAID THE FIRST TIME THE BROKE IT.IT WAS WORTHLESS

stlou says to (07:36:28):
so they use it, and abuse it

Med says to (07:36:44):
IT WAS SOMETHING THEY SHOULD HAVE TREADED VERY CAREFULLY ON.AND THEY DID NOT

BYE ALL
YW
LATER ALL
