TLAR: I for one want to see blue (blueyesinLevis) involved as I want to see all of you involved. He is a tireless searcher and brings much to this discussion as do all of you.. We all have opinions.
This has been a long term frustrating investment for many, but it is just an investment. It will come to an end soon enough. Everybody will be celebrating.
Everybody will not remember who said what in fact most of us will not ever hear from each other again. So in the mean time lets be kind to each other. Believe it or not everyone of us plays a part in this.
Why, because we are all here together spending time together. Those of you that go negative from time to time as we all do and have done, need to step away and come back when your spirits are up..
It only hurts the spirits of those that are trying to stay positive if you criticize. So as nobody really knows anything except speculation, me and all of you included, try to remember we are all on the same team in the end. We have a common goal.
This is only a point in time and it will pass and very soon we will go our separate ways. I want to personally thank all of you for making this ride a lot more fun.
I can't even imagine how one might feel if we could not gather in a place like this. I am doing it now because we all know that on d-day there will not be time as everyones life will change overnight.
So please as hard as it is sometimes, try to stay positive in the mean time. I'll get off my soap box now. Come back Blue. This is your home and we are your brothers and sisters... tlar.
tlar I am working with my daughter today so I will be brief. Bad news lately? Guys, guys the news is what we have been hoping for. Maliki has lost as long as the coalition sticks together. Hang tight.
We expect the coalition to hang tight. Maliki is toast. This is a parliamentary system. He loses unless the coalition breaks. He is trying to pretend he is the big winner in all of this.
His drawers will drop in the next 3 weeks and his underbelly will be exposed. He is finished whether you understand how or why. Expect conflicting stories but he lost the election. I'm right on this. Tlar
Tlar Ps. None of this wasn't predictable from the moment the coalitions number were released early.
190 trumps 95 or 93 or what ever. Maliki can not be PM unless he can get 165. He is finished. No way to be PM. He is trying to ra ra the Shia.
