Mryantodd: From all that you said in this post, the one thing that stood out to me is this statement "I love markers". I don't know why, but it brought back a childhood memory of the time a friend brought those smelly markers into school (blue smelled like blueberries, black smelled like licorice, etc.) and I just knew that if they smelled that good, they had to taste good too...... wrooooonnnnngggg!
All I got was a blue tongue and lips and had that nasty taste in my mouth through lunch. I think that smells trigger the strongest memories for me and that is one that I'll never forget, but brings a smile to my face each time I recall it.
I know my dad used to just shake his head at some of the things I did and must have thought that I was a complete idiot. Thanks for the memory Memphis, MRT

His words were ," Listen at 3pm the middle east is fixing to explode." Sounded good to me, I might be reading more into it than it is, will have to wait and see. Everyone have a great day. God bless you all. :handshake3:
By Memphis » July 25th, 2013, 10:34 am : Lanny, I suspect (highly) that his reference to "explode" was literal and not figurative.
There are many indications (speaking from my own observations here) that the next war is about to be started. Just last week the Pentagon stated that bringing down the Assad forces would take considerable resources and time.
This statement was not any revelation mind you, what was significant was that it was stated publicly. I read it myself on Bloomberg TV and it was another progression in the statements that are being made publicly.
Every week this progression has become noticeably more detailed.
Some sources that I follow are predicting the "game board" to be kicked over in August. I will keep my opinion to myself here, just wanted to provide another perspective to the discussion. :handshake2:
Specific "Game Board" references taken from Bloomberg TV:
June04 -pres O targeting Iran's currency (for isolation).
-Kerry warns of "total implosion" in Syria, US may keep planes in Jordan.
-The White House stated goal is to make the Rial unusable outside Iran.

Memphis wrote on July 25th, 2013, 9:54 am: OK, so the Smart Cards (Qi cards) are a hot topic of conversation now? lol
When you read this post you will see why I got a chuckle upon reading the CC notes of the past two days!
I made a request for Delta to address this very topic on May1 but it was not noticed and the topic was never brought up. :thug:
Now that we are talking openly about this and it's possible relevance as a 'marker' in our investment (LOL I love 'markers') here are some further thoughts that I had a few months back:
By Memphis » May 1st, 2013, 4:07 pm • [Post 351]
I have a question for tonight's CC that I would appreciate being given to Delta and rather than interrupt the call let me give it here...
Much has been said about the 'smart cards' and a member made the connection on the thread Monday between these cards and the re-pricing of the dinar 'in country' but it was largely ignored. I have heard this theory postulated by others in the past week and it makes such (amazingly) perfect sense to me that I now see it as the most probable outcome!
Given briefly it goes like this, with the activation of the smart cards there is no need for lower denominations to be released into circulation and the citizens can simply wake up (tomorrow for example) and take their smart card and go shopping. Any fractional purchase (in dinar) would require no conversion(s) or confusion regarding exchange values as this would be properly credited in their card balance.
It has been stated in the past that Iraq is to be the 1st nation that is converted into a 'cashless society'.
If we take their present situation and speculate how the central bank of Iraq might best facilitate (force this upon the people) then the present situation is nothing short of ideal!
Given the choice of continuing on 'as is' or being herded (like cattle) into the use of their smart cards with a new much higher value (power of purchase) for the dinar it seems an easy conclusion that the nation of Iraq could become 'cashless' all in the course of a single day...
Delta I am also told that much is being given on Iraqia TV regarding these smart cards so my question is, given what you are hearing, what is the possibility of these things playing out like this? Thanks..Memphis
AzProf: Wow Memphis- bold statement going cashless in a day.
Probably not real feasable, the single day part that is. Delta last night said that citizens do not have to have the qi-card and many do not. (Thank You Delta- You answered all of my questions last night clearly and concisely, it is very much appreciated)
Anyway, they will eventually get to being a 'mostly' cashless society, but the people will be forced to go that route. The govt wants everyone to have a qi-card because it is their ID card and it is truly how they will track people which leads to info, which leads to taxes, which leads to control.
And when the govt gives money- HCL, Retirement, etc, it must go onto a qi-card so if the citizens want money, they need a qi card. You can bet the govt will even send people into the marshes to give them these cards. Everyone will have them but it will be a process.
Things will be good and secure for a while but eventually, there will be forgery involved. So to be even more secure- anyone wish to take a flyer on what the next step will be?

Frank, I am hearing M-F 3pm (eastern time zone) on FOREX.....FIRST. CBI and others...to follow. coincidentally, I am told that the Kuwaiti dinar was re-priced at.... 3pm eastern on a Thursday.
Nothing to see here.....just another wild rumor....... :thug: blessings, Memphis
p.s. to be specific? The source said: "There's a time stamp on this thing." and his conclusion was sealed after he analyzed Ban Ki Moon's words from yesterday. I am going to bed, Eagle1 has the details...
By mriguy » July 25th, 2013, 12:35 pm • [Post 275] : Memphis.....I have read and heard most of your postulations / views / assessments recently. May I please ask you a/some question(s)?
My interpretation of something you recently stated seems to follow the idea that you believe EVERYTHING is already accomplished for the re-pricing of the IQD to go ahead and occur.
I do believe that the Qi cards are a catalyst for this to occur, especially for the multitudes of Gov't employees.
Of course, it in no way replaces the lower denoms, but works conjointly with them. Being a student of the articles and a master of extrapolating the truth out of them....Do you believe we will see the Qi card issue resolved by EOM?
If so, what is your view of the next step? If not, when do you see them becoming effective? Thank you, sir skullcrusher master. MRIguy.
By Memphis » July 25th, 2013, 12:56 pm • [Post 287] Hi MRIGuy, The GOI has been STATING the end of the 7th month. Are they lying? Maybe.
But IMO the citizens are also reading this date and this makes it likely to be reality. Further, I see no indications that the mechanism(s) are NOT in place for the cards to be functional.
To the contrary, the indications are clear that all the logistics for this have been receiving a great deal of attention!
My view of the next step?
ON June04 I became convinced that we are in the last days of this investment. That is the day the UNSC mysteriously had a meeting to discuss Ch7 (repeating myself from a recent post here) and then on Monday in the CC I expressed my opinion that all the markers that NEED to be met? Have been met.
I could list item affer item to support WHY I believe this but being a MO native I must be the 1st (and loudest) to state that we just need to see it.
I am personally waiting on just one thing, the re-pricing of the currency to show (at 3pm eastern). Any-day now beginning....yesterday! :handshake2:
If this gives me the label of being a "pumper"? Who cares. It is TRULY my considered opinion sir. I wish MRT had his 'meter' publication going. My metric would be at the extreme position Blessings, Memphis
By mriguy » July 25th, 2013, 1:01 pm • [Post 291] Memphis, Thank you, sir for your response. I take what you say pretty seriously. (and that is a big step for me. I don't trust many). I hope no one misconstrues your words.....I NEVER said you were a Pumper. Thanks again!! MRIguy.
