[letsdance] BGG>>>> there may be some tiny delay - if it were supposed to go off last week there is obviously a delay. poppy was right on target about budget being published. the main thing for BGG is to point out that last Sunday Maliki was dead on the mat, no option. US came in and said get this done or else. Maliki has taken as much time to delay as possible so it doesn't look like he was told by US to do anything.
[letsdance] BGG>>>> Whatever Maliki is doing he has taken the last few days to his advantage and using whatever he;s doing to his political advantage. Had he done it last week, he may look like Kerry's lapdog. Kuwait PM says border issue is over. Barzani is ready to go now. Ready for Maliki whenever he is.
[letsdance] BGG>>>> There was a behind the scenes deadline they were willing to meet. It would lean in the direction of where we're headed. Bottom line, relax for the next couple of days and let this play out. No big issue. BGG doesn't see any drama. Taking callers now.
Capt Ron] another way to look at these present times is...
[Capt Ron] ...look guys. we have all been in this dinar game for a long time. years for a lot of us...
[cashinqueen1] Capt Ron looks like years more lol

[dinarolk] Capt Ron question........why would the ppl in charge let it happen when we all expect it tomorrow?
[peganded] dinarolk we expect it every day! there is no time when it wont be expected!
[Capt Ron] dinarolk possibly because such a large event as this has a lot of political inertia that can't turn on a dime.
[Capt Ron] guys, if I might try to lighten things up a bit with a personal story.
[Capt Ron] ..my childhood hero, and to this day my hero, has been Mercury Astronaut Wally
[Capt Ron] Wally Schirra, for his great sense of humor, even during times of intense stress.
[Capt Ron] his mantra is, and therefore my mantra has always since been...."In all things, keep an even strain"meaning, when things are good, don't get too high., and when things are uncertain, don't get too low. keep an even strain. like now for example.
[Capt Ron]. he refers to 'strain' as a certain pace. keep the same pace in life, no matter how your day is going.
[tgwspoon] Capt Ron that's great advice.
[Capt Ron] Wally was talkin' about always staying in control of your emotions, not just when it is easy, but when times are challenging.
[Capt Ron] and in the financial world, when the time comes to pull the trigger on a buy or a sell order, you should do that with an even approach, a non-emotional approach, an even strain as it were.
[Capt Ron] and certainly in this gig here, the business of iqd, where you either have a zero return or a huge return, depending on what you do with your dinar, you better have an even strain.
[Capt Ron] including on days like today when you feel the pressure.
[Capt Ron] and yes, please guys…for you……. keep an even strain.
[hub] Capt Ron would you mind an old texas boy helpin,,,keep an even strain comes from teams of horses when you keep an even strain on the load bearing lines from what ever your pulling,,,strain gets uneven, you break the lines, and lose the load
[mcmc408] most of us have been here a number of times before just try to remain calm
[Capt Ron] hub yep, that would be the same idea brother. and... guys, hub here is a retired Navy fighter pilot, and when he talks about keeping an even strain under pressure.. he knows what the heck he's talking about.
[Capt Ron] so watch out for the naysayers popping in here and wherever, know what you have planned out all these years, and keep an even strain. out.,
[hub] Capt Ron thanks for the kind words,,,
[RindsGuy] mcmc408 I've only been here since Sept 2012. But, enough of these "it's happening now" times have occurred that my attitude is "ok, call me when it REALLY happens"
[mcmc408] RindsGuy that is right I still remember the first time I heard it was going "tonight" I stayed up all night waiting--that was the last time lol
[RindsGuy] mcmc408 I remember people saying "call me in the middle of the night if it RV's!" and I'm like "Why? What are you going to do in the middle of the night? Go to the bank?"
[mcmc408] RindsGuy lol very true don't call me till morning
[RindsGuy] mcmc408 Don't call me until after I've had my caffeine! Lol
