Gerson: ELECTION CAMPAIGNING BEGINS IN IRAQ
Election Campaigning Begins
Posted on 01 April 2014. Tags: elections, Independent High Electoral Commission, Iraq, Politics By John Lee.
Election campaigning began formally today across Iraq, Asharq al-Awsat reports.
Perhaps optimistically, they suggest this marks the end of the crisis with the Independent High Electoral Commission, following their return to work last week.
Campaign posters and billboards already adorn many parts of Baghdad, as seen in this Al Arabiya slideshow.
Radio Free Iraq has noted how the fact that campaigning has begun on April fools day is a source of amusement for many Iraqis.

[Sallypuff] The US still has control of the IMF. I realize that is apt to be short lived. Remember what happened to Cristine LaGarde's predecessor? He was conveniently removed by unusual circumstances. The US appointed LaGarde. Who make the final decision for this country regarding the IMF. I believe it is Pres. Obama. Therefore, I believe Pres. Obama has the power to have the RV either held up or to go forward.
[newlegacy] Igotit we will probably never get the "real truth" from any administration - they always have an angle to withhold certain things from the people. At least with the types we have had in office over the last hundred years or so
[Sallypuff] newlegacy - especially when the cabal probably calls the major shots.

[BocaLinda] Jester what do you think will happen with the vnd?
[Jester] BocaLinda A WHOLE 3 HOUR SYNOPSIS OR WILL "IT WILL GO WHEN THE RESET OCCURS" SUFFICE?

[xyz] hmmm Why Two Exchange Rates? . Iraq is unusual in this regard. Dual (or even multiple) exchange rates are usually only found in countries suffering from chronic trade deficits and foreign exchange shortages. Typically the objective is to make foreign exchange available for “essential” imports or to control inflation by lowering import prices. Examples include Hitler’s Germany, China in the 1980’s and early ‘90’s, Burma prior to 2012, and Venezuela today. (See this note from the Asian Development Bank for an excellent introduction to this topic.)

Before I begin, I have to profusely thank KP for the amount of work he put into getting this article sorted out, colour coding the various comments and keeping it readably organized- this is a daunting task!! Love you KP!!
So, apparently someone forwarded an article I wrote last week, responding to ZAP's weekly update, to ZAP/office of poofness, and he has posted his responses to my responses to his comments.... and so now I am going to respond to Zap's responses to my response to his comments with my own comments.
... colour coded to try and keep the dialogue straight. I'm fully caffeinated and ready!!
My responses to the original ZAP update will be in Blue, My responses to ZAP's responses to My Responses to ZAPs update this week will be in BLUE ALL CAPS AND ITALICS...... Zap and I are not yelling at each other, we're just running out of options to differentiate various sections of the conversation, lol.As a matter of fact, I think that Zappy baby and I would have a hell of a good time chatting over an espresso. Drop on by darlin- I'm in Morocco! Aouchtan to be exact... but then you knew that already didn't you? *giggle*

jdtolle » April 2nd, 2014, Feel the greatness
This is a great day to be alive. This is a great day to be who you are, where you are, and the way you are.
On this day, you can begin by assuming the best. Then you can follow through and do everything in your power to make it happen.
Today there will be all kinds of challenges and frustrations. And today, you can use each one of them as a way to grow stronger, more compassionate, more capable and more accomplished.
This is a day that’s too unique and precious to waste. This is a day that’s filled with new and exciting possibilities for making a difference.
Though there are certainly things to complain about, there is much more to be thankful for. Focus on the gratitude instead of the shortcomings, and you’ll invite today’s special flavor of abundance into your life.
This is a great day to be positive, purposeful and filled with enthusiasm for all you can do. Feel all the potential greatness in this day, and get busy bringing it to life in your own special way.
