Med says to (17:24:56):
OK SOME NEWS
SONNY READ AN ARTICLE OVER THE PHONE TO ME
AND I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE IT
IT WAS THAT SHABIBI STATING THAT HE WAS MOVING ON THE
DINARS
RATE OF EXCHANGE AS SOON AS THE BUDGET WAS PASSED
HE SAID SOMEONE NAMED WOODY SENT IT TO HIM WHO IS PRETTY STANDUP

JARV says to (17:26:06):
lol
Sammy says to (17:26:21):
Funny Fella!
alphonse43 says to (17:26:25):


Med says to (17:26:27):
I GUESS FROM DVII
DOES ANYONE KNOW HIM
I MEAN THE ARTICLE HAS TO BE LEGIT
IS IT NOT FUNNY
HOW THE DYNAMICS CHANGE SO MUCH
BEFORE WE WERE WAITING BECAUSE SHABIBI SAID THE GOVT HAD TO BE FORMED
NOW IT IS WE ARE WAITING FOR THE BUDGET
BUT IF TRUE
IT IS GOOD NEWS
BUT HE READ THE ENTIRE THING TO ME
WANTED ME TO TELL HIM WHAT I THOUGHT
SONNY DOES NOT SCREW AROUND WITH ME
AT ALL
HE IS A VERY CLOSE PERSONAL FRIEND

starlord6d6d says to (17:28:45):
since of the two, wouldn't doing the RV after the budget passed be better than waiting on those last couple positions?

Med says to (17:28:45):
IN REAL LIFE
I THINK SO STARLORD
THEY NEED ECONOMIC REFORMS
FAST
AND STARTED
ASAP

starlord6d6d says to (17:29:19):
true

Med says to (17:29:29):
ALSO I READ
HMMMM
CRAP
OH I REMEMBER
LOL
IT WAS ON THE COUNCIL WHO IS FOR THE CHANGE TO INSTITUTIONAL MARKET ECONOMY

JARV says to (17:30:05):
Med why would shabs announce this in an article prior to it happening?

Med says to (17:30:09):
TO THE FREE MARKET ECONOMY
BUT HON REMEMBER HE ANNOUNCED IT TWICE A MONTH
FOR 6 STRAIGHT MONTHS
35 TIMES HE AND SALEH

JARV says to (17:30:47):
not exchange rate the small denoms

Med says to (17:30:48):
HAD NEWS RELEASES
ON THE REMOVAL OF THE ZERO'S
AS SOON AS THE GOVT WAS FORMED
SO THAT IS YES BIG NEWS
FOR HIM

starlord6d6d says to (17:31:32):
perhaps they were just trying to confuse speculators?

Med says to (17:31:37):
NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT THE CHANGE HAS TO TAKE PLACE
ESPECIALLY IN A FREE MARKET ECONOMY
THINK OF THIS IF THEY DID NOT
IN THE FORUM IT SAYS THAT UNEMPLOYMENT IS NOT 28%
BUT MORE LIKE 45% IN IRAQ
THAT IS TERRIBLE
SO
WE KNOW THAT PRICES IN IRAQ ARE CONTROLLED BY THE GOVT
AND THEY ARE SUBSIDIZED
AND THE DINAR THEY HAVE IN HAND IS MORE OF A COPAY
JUST LIKE HEALTH INSURANCE
NOW WE ALSO KNOW THAT THE MAJOR EXPORTER OF GOODS SOLD IN IRAQ
IS CHINA
AND THEY ARE CRAP
THERE IS NO COMPETITION IN IRAQ RIGHT NOW
AT ALL
NOW IN A FREE MARKET ECONOMY
ALL VENDORS
CAN PUT A PRICE ON GOODS AT ANY RATE
AND THE GOVT CANNOT INTERFERE
NOW TO IMPORT GOODS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES
THEY ARENT GETTING A DISCOUNT
CUZ THE DINAR IS CRAP
AND WHEN THEY HIT THE STREETS WITH THESE NEW GOODS
THEY WILL NEED TO CHARGE THE VALUE THEY PAID
AND THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO PAY THAT AMOUNT
OR ELSE
NOW AT 1170
IT AINT BUYING SQUAT
AND IT SURE ISN'T HIRING ANY LABOR
TO IMPROVE THE WAY THOSE BUSINESS'S ARE RUNNING
THAT IS WHY A FOREIGN EXCHANGE CURRENCY IS NEEDED
IT IS FOR PURCHASING POWER
NOT JUST FOR THE BUYER
BUT THE SELLER
THE GOVT
THE IMPORTER
THE EXPORTER
SO CURRENCY CAN BE CONVERTED
AND LABOR CAN BUY GOODS AND SERVICES WITH HIS WAGES
NOT JUST FROM THE VENDOR HE WORKS FOR
BUT ANY OF THEM
AND THIS MONEY IS RECYCLED
INTO A 360
AND THE ECONOMIC PROGRESS OF THE PRIVATE SECTOR WILL MOVE FORWARD
THE DINAR IS NOT RELEVANT FOR THE OIL INDUSTRY AT ALL
IT IS FOR THE UNEMPLOYED
AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR
IT IS THAT TRADEABLE CURRENCY THAT WILL CREATE THE JOBS NEEDED
AND ENHANCE THE SURVIVAL OF IRAQ
OR IT IS GOING TO FAIL

starlord6d6d says to (17:39:36):
true

Med says to (17:39:42):
TY

papaw19 says to (17:39:44):
well for sure, Med,,,,one of these days the info will be right & we RV

Med says to (17:39:57):
I AM TOTALLY SURE OF IT
AND WE HAVE NOT BEEN WRONG

jonmac says to (17:40:05):
3rd reading of budget on Sunday?

Med says to (17:40:13):
NOW THAT I DO NOT KNOW
ONLY THAT NUJAIFI
SAID THEY ARE NOT GOING TO PICK THIS APART ANYMORE
THAT IS OVER

jonmac says to (17:40:47):
yeah, that was good to read

Med says to (17:40:48):
AND SUNDAY IS THE LAST DAY
NOW PERSONALLY
AND THIS IS JUST MY OPINION

topkick says to (17:41:13):
Nujaifi seems to be a stand up guy...........just like Woody

Med says to (17:41:15):
I THINK IT WILL BE THE EARLIEST NEXT WEDNESDAY
I THINK THEY WILL BE ALLOWED ON SUNDAY TO DEBATE
BUT
I ALSO READ THEY WANT THE MOF
ADN OTHER EXPERTS AT PARLIAMENT

starlord6d6d says to (17:41:50):
that is my opinion too, I feel that they are moving and into next week they might do the RV

Med says to (17:41:52):
TO HERE THE BUDGET

papaw19 says to (17:42:02):
sunday right

Med says to (17:42:07):
YES

Med says to (17:42:10):
THAT IS WHAT HTEY SAID

perez says to (17:42:16):
will the oil for food program continue as long as no rv?

Med says to (17:42:27):
NO THE OIL FOR FOOD IS NO LONGER
IT IS OVER
THE ONLY THING THAT IS IN PLACE
IS THE DFI PROTECTION OF THOSE ASSETS
UNTIL MAY 1
THEN THEY ARE OUT ON THEIR OWN
AND THAT MONEY IS OPEN TO ANYONE
THEY OWE A DEBT TOO

starlord6d6d says to (17:43:24):
and they don't want that so they have to have the RV before that

jonmac says to (17:43:29):
better get their economy on solid footing b4 then

Med says to (17:43:36):
YES THAT IS WHAT LANACHY SAID TO ME ALSO
WELL JONMAC
I DON'T SEE IT BEING ON SOLID FOOTING BY THEN
BUT THE VALUATION OF THE DINAR
AND THE PROJECTS

jonmac says to (17:44:06):
at least starting to head inm that direction!

Med says to (17:44:08):
MOVING FORWARD
WILL BE A HUGE PLUS
AS WAS SAID
THIS BUDGET WAS TO BE DONE LAST DECEMBER
NOT IN 2011
AND THE BUDGET FROM LAST YEAR NEVER MADE IT TO PARLIAMENT

starlord6d6d says to (17:44:46):
it's kinda a given that Iraq will be shaky, this is a first for them with this type of government,

Med says to (17:44:50):
TO BE RATIFIED
OH YES STARLORD
THAT IS A GIMME
FOR SURE

jonmac says to (17:45:22):
it is more of a consensus parliamental system than majority rules, isn't it?

Med says to (17:45:24):
I LOVED THE STATEMENT BY THE DAWA PARTY
HMMMMM
YES
I WOULD SAY SO
SINCE WE KNOW THAT MALIKI DOES NOT REPRESENT A MAJORITY
AND HE IS RULING

jonmac says to (17:46:06):
right

Med says to (17:46:10):
BUT PARLIAMENT CONTROLS EVERYTHING

starlord6d6d says to (17:46:13):
but a parl is only slightly different than what we have here with a House and Senate

Med says to (17:46:15):
AND I MEAN EVERYTHING
YES
THAT IS TRUE
THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IRAQ HAS
IS THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND NATIONAL PRIDE
AS WE DO

starlord6d6d says to (17:46:49):
true

Med says to (17:46:56):
ALL ARE NOT IRAQI'S FIRST
THEN BLOC MEMBERS SECOND

starlord6d6d says to (17:47:05):
they have more arrogance I feel

Med says to (17:47:06):
IT IS THE OPPOSITE
OH HECK YES

jonmac says to (17:47:13):
sect more important than country

Med says to (17:47:19):
YES JONMAC
EXACTLY
THAT IS WHY THE SECURITY SITUATION IS SO DIRE
NOONE CAN KNOW WHO TO TRUST

starlord6d6d says to (17:48:10):
but isn't that almost anywhere over there? in any of those countries?

Med says to (17:48:17):
WELL
IN A WAY YES
BUT NOT TO THIS EXTREME

jonmac says to (17:48:32):
some worse than others.

Med says to (17:48:39):
ALSO IT WAS FUNNY
THAT SO MANY COUNTRIES IN THE ME
SENT LETTERS OF DISAPPOINTMENT TO THE GOI
AND ONE CAME FROM LYBIA
WHICH IS IRONIC
THAT THEY WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE EVENTS AND THE PROGRESS IN IRAQ

starlord6d6d says to (17:49:29):
though that has got to sting getting letters like that

Med says to (17:49:34):
OH I BET
IT IS REMENISCENT
OF THE LAST ARAB SUMMIT MALIKI WENT TOO
WHERE THE SAUDI'S LAUGHED AT HIS STATEMENTS
OK GANG GONNA GO EAT SUPPER

WildfireI says to (17:51:21):
Med, should we look at this article as being an accurate report of Shabibi's intent or is it rumor to be debunked?

starlord6d6d says to (17:51:29):
M must have thought he would be welcomed but being laughed at, he can't want that to happen again with this up coming summit

Med says to (17:51:29):
YES
OH I AM SURE
TAKE CARE ALL
AND THANKS

starlord6d6d says to (17:51:53):
enjoy your supper MED, thanks

Med says to (17:51:53):
GREAT CHAT
BYE ALL
