Both parties are saying that is the other parties fault if their is a shutdown October 1st! I think that is the day that the U.S. had planned to pass the 2014 budget. Like Frank has stated in the past, we seem to be running parallel with Iraq.
Post by another mailman » September 30th, 2013, 1:02 am • [Post 170] An added note: I don't think the United States will pass their 2014 budget before Iraq does! I'm still thinking that we need a week or two of aggravation before we see the light at the end of the tunnel. Politicians must bicker and posture awhile first.

Post By LoveThisFamily » September 30th, 2013, 11:48 am • [Post 316] We decided it was time to approach the banks about our upcoming accounting needs.
Hubby went to one of the non-WF big five today. ALL he referred to was his interest in foreign currency exchange on October 2. The manager got very flustered at that point. Can't talk about it yet, I'm sure.
She proceeded to send him to both Business and Commercial banking at which point they offered him a private banker.
Remember, he said nothing about himself or what he owns or makes or has. They offered the private banker simply based on "foreign currency exchange" and "October 2"

Post By ATLAS » September 30th, 2013, 12:10 pm • [Post 330] Hello all, Like many I'm a lurker and post only when I feel there is a necessity. When I see a post like Eagle1's I also get optimistic like many others but refrain from going overboard.
It's hard but after the years I've been involved in this it has also become ... a necessity. I also notice many patterns but more towards society. Being a social worker for 12+ years makes me pretty good at it.
You see one thing that I've noticed is every time an optimistic post like Eagle1's latest or many of Franks', people are quick to praise them and become very friendly and nice giving thanks to all.
Why not, good news makes people feel good right?. I've been known to go hug my wife after good news. The problem is what comes next. When a prediction doesn't come true or news changes, that good feeling goes away. It's natural and part of human nature.
But it never ceases to amaze me how many times there has been good news that doesn't quite lead to fruition and the amount of people that swear off Frank and others. I know of an entire office building that bought dinars on assumptions just to sell them off months later when things didn't happen their way.
I wish to make a request if I may.I know it's an odd request but please everyone lower your expectations. Then when things go right you will never be disappointed. OK that was a bit stupid sounding but true.
Believe me when I say I need this blessing like everyone else. I hope and pray for it all the time to give my family a better life. However I've learned to stay grounded. Most understand this but others still struggle.
OK I'm done and sorry if I offend anyone but I'd love to make Frank's 10% prediction much higher.
Post By Bartholomew » September 30th, 2013, 1:49 pm • [Post 359] My thoughts exactly, Atlas. Staying tempered and grounded til I'm leaving the bank. Everything else is theories and opinions. I hope mine or Atlas' post isn't regarded as negative because it isn't, just realistic. If God decides to bless us this week, praise Him. If not, praise him anyway. Peace to all.

Post by gfulcher66 » September 30th, 2013, 2:16 pm • [Post 369] So many facts scream october, but what gives me reserve is that it isnt likely IMO to see this with our governmnt in such chaos.
Will you adress this at your leisure, Frank or team 26? Im basing this on the health care tax that this RV could effect if its iniitiated before the USA gov comes to some agreements, I base this solely on Christine Legards most recent statements as the IMF is in charge of this IMO.
Post By mcdan » September 30th, 2013, 2:29 pm • [Post 371] The US is on the top rung as far as the IMF is concern. The year 2007 there was a report when Iraq RV their currency they would be 8% level. I do not remenber for sure , but I seem to recall the US would be around 21%. FYI
EXTRA NOTE: It is noteworthy that the banking system in Iraq consists of forty-three banks as well as the Central Bank and distributed by the property (7) government and banks (30) waged banks including (7) Islamic banks in addition to (6) of foreign banks. LINK
