[hub] BOBGETZ6 i will pull it up, well heres for 9 am, see what happens will talk later goin to work,
[BOBGETZ6] I was looking for it last night early morning but today is the banks "Monday" and so it goes.
generals64] papi10 :...We have negotiated strongly with Wells FArgo and the best rate and stuff (perks etc) the guys who have negotiated this have also worked with the other banks. This should have already happened by now but, it seems we just wait as no one is sure why it hasn't happened yet. Also, the registering and listing of bank needed (not us) information helped to logistically set this in motion.
papi10] generals64 Will those of us in Oklahoma who signed up early be going to Texas or will Chase and BoA be in on it too?
[generals64] papi10 :...Wells FArgo gave us the best rate....OK?
[z1world] Erbil Tuesday meeting to be held at Talabani's residence
[z1world] Tuesday, 29 May 2012 11:32 | | | Baghdad (AIN) –MP, Ahmed al-Massari, of the Iraqiya Slate expected that "The meeting of Erbil, which will be held on Tuesday, will be held at the residence of the President, Jalal Talabani to discuss the means of choosing the next prime minister."
[z1world] 29/05/2012 05:57 AM BAGHDAD: / - The Iraqi List led by Iyad Allawi, on Monday, the depletion of deadlines to resolve the political crisis through dialogue, stressing the option of resorting to withdraw confidence from the Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and the formation of a new government
Hammerman.....Late Evening 5-28-2012 There were some big meetings on Wed of last week with the IMF, World Bank, China, Japan, Canada that lasted over 2 days. Good stuff came out of those meetings. There was some serious concern that the US and Canada could be holding up the RV. That's just what I'm being told. I think this is Shabibi's puppy and he gave the code book to the BIS and in that was the date and rate and we just haven't reached that date yet.
Maliki is already gone. He was exiled weeks ago and sent to London and Switzerland and they seized everything he had. He will be reinstated but no one will ever know it because now he's being nice, nice.
About 2 hours ago I heard that rather than 13 countries RVing without Iraq that permission was given that it has gone from 13 to 25. VND, China and Mexico all in this basket. If they RV without Iraq they will get about a 17% increase in their rate. If they wait and RV with Iraq they will get a 50% rate increase in their rate. I think they're going to wait until the very last minute to see if Iraq gets on board.
At 6pm central time tonight the banks were called back in to look for rate changes on these countries. They are at the banks right now watching the screens expecting it. The next few days will be very promising.
