BGG says to RickeyT(6:40 PM): No clue - apparently - not so loyal. Not here...
BGG says to RickeyT(6:41 PM): some comment about not being optimistic about the near future... and asked me what I thought.
RickeyT says(6:41 PM): yes sir
BGG says to RickeyT(6:42 PM): I took it as a sneaky way to ask what I think. Ask thomas1 how that works.
RickeyT says(6:42 PM): LOL

Baxter1243 says(6:44 PM): Are the Tariffs still set to start soon? Like Jan 1?

poppy3 says(6:46 PM): how about cbi removing the rat on line from jan 1 thru 3rd
poppy3 says(6:46 PM): reposting rate on the 4th ?????????????
poppy3 says(6:47 PM): RATE
BGG says to poppy3(6:47 PM): Not sure what that means... but it is curious - the delay.
BGG says to poppy3(6:47 PM): and if they give us a "late New Years" present - I WILL TAKE IT!!
Dinar Investor says(6:47 PM): To expound upon what Poppy3 just said, what are your thoughts on the ISX being closed from dec 28 to Jan 3?
poppy3 says(6:47 PM): REMEMBER SHABIBI SAID IT WOULD TAKE 3 DAYS TO CHANGE THE RATE
BGG says to poppy3(6:48 PM): (BTW - my deep SW lingo was showing... :D - !hola)
BGG says to Dinar Investor(6:49 PM): again - not sure I'm going to read too much into it - other than that - AND the CBI delay is very curious. To say the least...
poppy3 says(6:49 PM): LOL,LOL
Pablo says(6:52 PM): Didn't the WB insist upon that taxes and tarrifs to start up in exchange for the loans and if so, when did they insist that they start up?
poppy3 says to buck(6:52 PM): YEP SAID REMOVING THE RATE TILL 4TH
Mrs BGG says to Pablo(6:53 PM): Where did you hear that?
BGG says to Pablo(6:53 PM): I'm on a call.
wmawhite says to Pablo(6:54 PM): it is the reforms they wanted.
Pablo says(6:54 PM): Yes, That's right.
Pablo says(6:54 PM): Wasn't it in the news logs a few days ago?
dale says to subgirl(6:55 PM): Alak remains inplace .... the IMF is now assisting .... we've seen Shabibi in pictures the last few months ... do you think Shabibi has some role in this?
BGG says to dale(6:56 PM): Other that with the IMF - I doubt he has much of a role...
BGG says to dale(6:56 PM): he won't ever go back to Iraq.
puffdragon says(6:57 PM): Bgg are you ready for the new task of vetting the best places to do our exchanges And how long would you be willing to offer that service Thank You :)(v)

jtank says(6:58 PM): any sign of the elusive 50k note?
BGG says to jtank(6:59 PM): Just big talk so far.
jtank says(6:59 PM): thx
jtank says(6:59 PM): smoke?
BGG says to jtank(6:59 PM): Til I see otherwise...
maine says(7:00 PM): what is the latest on maliki?
Signman says(7:02 PM): Unless I'm mistaken would not the 4th of January be 30 day since they changed the rate to 1182 to make the
Signman says(7:02 PM): sorry
BGG says to maine(7:03 PM): Not much really - and that is odd.
maine says(7:03 PM): i thought so too! thanks BGG
BGG says to maine(7:03 PM): a big point being Maliki's main power base is the Shia PMU's - Abadi isn't using them right now.
BGG says to maine(7:05 PM): in minimizing their role - he's minimizing HIS ROLE - AND according to FOX - (or substitute any other news outlet) they are WINNING without the SHIA PMU's...
BGG says to maine(7:05 PM): so much for Abu Azrael as a PR pawn.
maine says(7:05 PM): andthe Sunnis are helping too
BGG says to Signman(7:06 PM): again - I'm good with that!!
BGG says to Signman(7:06 PM): BOOM.
dennis2 says(7:06 PM): Any new updates on Dinar Corp? IE: FBI contacting us (or us contacting them) or anything to return any funds to us
BGG says to dennis2(7:08 PM): IMHO - they (the FBI) are working on "rounding up the funds" - it's all about the money... once they get it. Once they get Sterling's money - they will work on getting it back to the investors (once they "classify" them/us as "victims" - sorry, their lingo...)
dennis2 says(7:08 PM): Okay. Thank you
BGG says to dennis2(7:09 PM): I have no doubts the FBI/Government has NO DESIGNS on that money - they will return as much as possible to the people. ALL IMHO only.
7shiela says(7:09 PM): Do we really have a hold up or is this really how it was to play out anyway?
BGG says to 7shiela(7:10 PM): there have been a lot of "twists to the plot" - what we call them is up to us... I highly doubt any of this was planned.
nromeo says(7:10 PM): what would happen if they did nothing with the currancy and just kept using the usd?they have been using it for many years and are still surviving u think that is at all possible what would happen to Iraq
7shiela says(7:11 PM): TY
BGG says to nromeo(7:12 PM): long run - NO CAN DO - IMF is in charge. They can't have a "dual currency country" as a major exporter of oil. Muy no bueno...
nromeo says(7:12 PM): TY
Comments may be made at the end of Part 2 Thank You
