Chat Room News Excerpts & Highlights Tuesday Night 6-11-19 Part 2 of 2
Lance From TNT: I run a motel in the USA .. and the only currency I can take is US dollars.. however if you are booking online you will likely see a choice of currency.. but its been that way for years..
I mean someone in Iraq is flying to US and want to reserve a room they must transfer their Iraq currency into US dollar.. .. in US it is illegal to accept any currency other than US dollar for business purposes services... At least where I am at anyway.
Sparky Conversions are programed, and constantly fluctuating, if an MC participant. Just done for convenience for the Iraqis traveling to the states...imo
Lance Sparky That's what is sounds like.
Sparky Lance they would take rocks if they could convert it
Sparky Lance not sure article 8 applied on citizen vs government transactions
Lance Sparky Just figured if TNT crowd does not take it and run with it, it's not anything to get excited about. ;)
Baxter Lance... I dont know if that true or not... someone coming from Iraq..would have one heck of a time at our banks converting their currency to USD......
Lance The credit card company does the conversion. They can't take IQD and flop it on the counter and get a room in the US.
Dave Clay phoned IHG.today...you cant pay in dinar.......will take cc and make the conversion
Sparky Lance real good sign, though...Iqd not on "bad" list
Lance Sparky exactly.
Dave Lance beat me.....
Lance Dave You and I are the same page with this
Dave yep Lance
Sparky MasterCard transaction, no big deal

Lance No more than someone can use pesos to get a room. In US, must use USD or a CC that converts and most of them do......... for a nominal fee.
Baxter not hardly
Sparky Gotta shake it up sometimes...to stave away the monotony
Sparky Dave Barzani machine just got another term
Dave calling for 140 too

Tigger ERBIL - Iraqi PM Adil Abdul-Mahdi has made it clear that he has no plans to leave the office, saying that only the Council of Representatives has the authority to remove him from his position and the parliament is not going to do so.
The Iraqi premier made the remarks during his weekly press conference on Thursday where he also revealed that certain political parties are reportedly attempting to impede the process of completing the new Iraqi government as a few ministerial posts are yet to be filled due to political disputes among the parties.
Abdul-Mahdi, however, did not clearly accuse any sides, but pointed out that he has been close to completing his cabinet despite the obstacles being put in his way.
He further refuted the rumors that he had any plans to leave the office, considering the claims as "far from the truth".
Tigger An Iraqi man on Monday paid his future wife $8 million in dowry, considered the highest amount in Iraq’s history.
The 33-year-old woman, who is divorced and has two children, will receive $3 million prior to the marriage and the rest to be paid after the wedding, an official court document shared on social media revealed.
The bridegroom, 35, undertook to look after the bride’s two children.
The rare and unprecedented incidence filled Iraqis with wonder an astonishment as dowries in the country usually oscillate between $4000 and $8000.
Dowry, or Mahr, is a mandatory payment – which can be in the form of money or possessions – that a bridegroom pays to a bride at the time of marriage.
Women in the region have been traditionally financially dependent and their families tend to demand future husbands offer a number of financial guarantees.
Tigger That last one us nice!

chattels " .................. deteriorating security situation."

chattels Diyala MPs held press conference calling on PM Mahdi to send more forces to secure Diyala Has not been the first time and wont be the last this will happen Diyala most violent province in Iraq
chattels I have been criticized for some years now for being negative about security and stability in Iraq,
Sparky chattels sadly, yes...me included
chattels I view such criticism as a badge of honor in retrospect.
Tebow coming days = never happening for Iraq
Sparky chattels been right so far...
Lance chattels I laughed when I read this. You are right on to him. MarkZ says there are a lot of things that he is not allowed to share. It would appear that truth and fact are disallowed.
chattels Tebow Coming days - and they all lived happily thereafter.
chattels "There's a sucker born every minute" is a phrase closely associated with P. T. Barnum, an American showman of the mid-19th century, although there is no evidence that he actually said it.
Sparky chattels patience universally rules, it seems to me to be straight logic...post corruption
Sparky chattels they got the oil. The world is greased on oil
chattels Of late I find myself resolved to stay the course if for no other reason than the fear of the ignominy attendant to selling now and losing out on a liquidity event after all the years of waiting and hoping.
Sparky For a long, long time yet to come
Sparky chattels if in fear, sell half...
chattels Sparky I hear you, bit I bought an amount that would be life changing if the return was a dime. I am going to stay the course.
chattels but *
Sparky Trust me, renewable energy for the masses is " in the coming days " , until then...China needs low sulfer, High grade oil that can be excavated and provided at minimal price
Sparky Ie Silk Road
chattels So much for the notion of 30 laws being ready to vote upon in the Iraqi Parliament .......... ".Parliament ends discussion of the amendment of the provincial elections law and raise its meeting to Thursday" _NEWS_DATE: 2019/6/11
chattels Good night all.
Sparky My thought is that China reliance on oil, will drive the value of the iqd, once they are article 8 compliant... I could be wrong
sandyf @Baxter holiday inn is actually accepting other currencies for motel room payment.
This idea is incorrect and obviously causing some confusion.
Online payments are invariably done by a payment processor and they determine currency requirement, not the company concerned. This statement appears on the website.
"Final payment will be in the hotel's currency. Learn more about currency exchange data."
Here in Thailand, if you apply for a visa to visit the UK the payment is made in USD as the UK government use a payment processor that does not want to accept Thai Baht. If you apply for the same visa in China payment is made in Yuan.
It should also be borne in mind that in order to make the payment you would need a card funded in the currency selected. If Iraqi banks issue cards in IQD it would be up to the processor if such cards were accepted, nothing to do with Article 8, although wider use of the currency is a move in the right direction.
