Post by Memphis » April 19th, 2014, hmmmm :thnk: As to trusting a central banker?
If I were at lunch with the man hearing of his plans for the very next hour I would not make decisions based on it. My post (Dec2013?) of their own admission to "withhold market sensitive information" ought to be mentioned here.
This is the type of fundamental truth thru which we should filter all that we see and hear.
It's important tho to add, I do believe they have shared things of value along the way. Therein lays the great challenge that we have faced, to discern the difference.
Next, one of my greatest frustrations for 3yrs now has been the dinar world's propensity to latch onto a soon coming event and make it justification (evidence).
We seem to open our calendar and look to the next month not in the lines of critical thinking but perhaps more of a type of desperation.
note: not stepping on anyone in particular, this is a general statement. :thug:
"it must RV prior to such and such conference for SURELY Shabibbi (now Turki) would never attend with (you guessed it) ....toilet paper for currency."
Tho I should have climbed this soapbox long ago, my point is that HAD WE discerned those things of value and held them close while letting all else simply fall to the floor we would have each progressed in our discernment and ability to think critically with the side benefit from less irrational exuberance and that being less....disappointment.
I cringe at what some people choose to hold on to. Notice I did not say "pick up" as I pick up nearly everything and yet only carry with me a light load. Tho my tone has been more subtle in times past, I have consistently encouraged this practice publicly in my posts and on CC's for a LONG time for this has troubled me from day #1.
Nova and I discuss those things that we have gathered only if some question exists as to it's worth. All else is dropped without a word being exchanged.
A recent example: We watch the closing of gold markets for four (4) days with interest but make no claims regarding it as THAT would be unfounded such that IF it were found out to truly be of value we would only know this after the event.
A more far off thought: In November I pitched a thought to Nova that we might have a "back wall" date in May2014 IF Maliki is being shut out of politics.
He suggested I post this (in jest) knowing that I would be stoned to death. Only now that we are in that month can I safely even share such "dinar heresy". :thug:
I am also L@@King with much interest for global news that seems "misplaced" or out of the expected. An American registered Challenger60 on the tarmac in Iran? Seems worth holding on to that one, at least for now. Hope this all makes sense...
Now that I have framed my "perspective", let's L@@K at your countdown scenario some...
fact: the CBI and other Iraqi gov't voices have consistently thrown out dates that are always moving and isn't it odd that as one such date approaches? Another get's thrown into the mix and perhaps one more for good measure. Until recently tho...
The volume of such verbiage has dropped off to such a trickle I cannot recall their last such "campaign".
And to support Frank's thinking here, yes there has been a convergence (subtle? yes but still there) towards May/June 2014. I am told to pay attention to this.... ....and so I am....
Two weeks ago I broke form and laid out a riddle:
Post by Memphis » April 2nd, 2014, 8:52 am • [Post 209]
a thought, when we read that Iraq will do a thing in the 1st of the year what does that mean? If we were placed at the edge of a forest and asked "how far can you walk into the forest?" we would reflect on the task and then have many differing answers true? "5miles", "10miles", "until I get tired", etc...
If you placed (for example) a Jew and asked him the same question? His quick response would be: "Half way."
If you can answer this riddle then you'll get my meaning. Blessings, Memphis
hint: the western mind works differently than eastern.
Many folks caught the point here that until July, we are in the 1st of 2014 and yes I see many many things that support this season. I will not give my personal expectations here publicly (or otherwise) other than the following, a glimpse into my thinking:
My considered opinion based on ALL that I know? Xena could likely strike 10days off her count. Just an opinion from just one member. I fully respect the thoughts of any who may differ. :handshake2: Blessings, Memphis
