[Capt Ron] I've followed the iqd saga up here, just like I always do...and our present state of affairs is really curious to me.
[Capt Ron] It USED to be that there was always 'something' that we dinarians were waiting on, and then after that 'something' got done we would go through another cycle of increasing expectations followed by postponed hopes..
[Capt Ron] ...but lately, there doesn't seem to be any one 'something' identifiable to point to that we are waiting on...
[Capt Ron] ...that is what is so curious to me about these times.
[Capt Ron] now, certainly there is 'something' that we really ARE waiting for, it is just that I don't think many of us know what that 'something' is.
[Capt Ron] Something to think about.
[Labrador99] Now that we know that everything we say in these chats is being watched and read peeps aren't going to express much I guess. Even Recaps is boring.

[timo] Labrador99 ....That was actually a question on "who wants to be a millionaire"...What is the govt. dept. known as that monitors internet chat sites ???
[timo] I can't remember the whole answer but it had librarians in it
[Labrador99] timo Gov. has sucessfully made the American public look over their shoulder at every step they take now.
[Capt Ron] Whether or not these words are being monitored, i will never fall back from expressing my opinion on this site, and I hope you guys don't either.
[Capt Ron] And Maliki is ugly.
[Labrador99] Very ugly
[Capt Ron] Over these past months, we have read views as to whether the global C/E will be at the conclusion/climax of some "Good vs Evil" confrontation, you guys remember all of that?...
[Capt Ron] ...could it be that this conflict that is spoken of involves none other than this present fear of public expression of views?
[Capt Ron] (as well as a conversion of our currency from fiat to asset based currency etc etc)
[Labrador99] There will always be good vs. evil so waiting for a shift to the good side may be a very long wait. The ME is always going to be in turmoil.
[Capt Ron] iow is this purported Good vs Evil contest being played out in front of us here in the USA right now?
[Capt Ron] I also hope that I am not sounding like a Nesara devotee. -I am not.
[newshound] Capt Ron There are still a few patriots left, lol
[Labrador99] Capt Ron We are being conditioned to the way of the left by slowly but surely throwing things at us then letting us express out disdain for awhile but never taking action to correct anything. Then we forget what we were complaining about ..subsequently(?) they have accomplished another move to left.
[Labrador99] Hope that makes sense1
[Capt Ron] yes it does.
[Capt Ron] it would be akin to a frog in water that is slowly increasing in temperature. the frog never jumps out but gets boiled instead.
[newshound] Labrador99 totally agree, so where is the outrage?
[Capt Ron] there is little outrage expressed because 'we' realize that we are now in the minority of voters in our electorate. more of us get 'stuff' from the federal treasury (in the net-net) than put 'stuff' into the federal treasury. and our voting will always show that from now on.
[Labrador99] WE can't go to our elected politician because they are so hands into the pot that they don't dare upset the apple cart.
[hardtorecall] The real criminal part of all these scandals is a national news media that chooses not to report it
[lovavette] read this the other day " If elected officials knew that at some point they would return to common life, would they be voting for the bills they are now?"
[Capt Ron] yep. hey. i'm sure that the peeps who run the MSM are reading these transcripts right now. Anybody have any words for our friends at the MSM?
[newshound] There was only about 10-15% of the pop that stood up to British and brought the Rev. war that gave us the freedom that we enjoy now.
[Capt Ron] nh I've been reading (listening to a tape of) a long and fascinating history of Jefferson.
[Capt Ron] (Thomas not George)
[Capt Ron] and to recount the ideas upon which our republic was founded in the 18th century really makes it miserable observing our present socialist state.
[Labrador99] The IRS is a prime example. If there was ever a time to change something it would be changing the tax system in this country.
[Labrador99] But nooooooooooo! we're going to let this slip under the carpet and slap a few wrists and be done with it.
[Capt Ron] Labrador99 yes, because part of Socialism's requirements is the control, the absolute control, over the common peeps of the State. And revenue collection, with all of the complexities now involved, is an important part of that control.
[Capt Ron] arr
[subtle] a must read...great explanation of the Global Currency Reset(GCR) by Eagle1...on recaps...
[Precious] Sadoun said during a press conference that he was allocated approximately 170 billion Iraqi dinars from the federal budget for covered by Article GOOD NEWS
[subtle] The gold that backs the IQD causes the IQD to become a worthwhile "gold certificate" which in turn takes the place of actual gold on deposit at Fort Knox. With the US Treasury holding literally trillions of IQD in its vaults, and holding onto it, it makes the IQD (at nothing more than reinstated value) a significant asset for backing the new USD.
[Midnight Blue] Generic Investment considerations First find certified and licensed financial advisors and investment bankers with a proven track record. (Note; I am not one) Start your homework now, if you have not done so already.
Depending on how much funds you have after exchange, you should probably diversify and use more than one. Due to uncertain future value of the USD and personal peace of mind, I suggest paying off all of your debts immediately.
Next purchase anything you want for your family lives, a nicer home, reliable autos, what you need to protect your family. Keep enough cash on hand in case there is civil unrest or worst. Keep some precious metals on hand for the same reason. I do not mean in a bank, where if the worst happens you can lose it. For the same reasons, what you do keep in banks, keep in separate banks.
Digital money can be erased. Bank safety boxes can be confiscated or denied accessed. In general, in short term investments, the higher the return, the higher the risk. If you have a large amount of funds, you may want to risk a small amount for higher short term returns.
Keep some funds in flexible accounts that provide at least a little return, but the bank can use to automatically transfer funds into a 0 balance checking account to cover checks and transfers to cover your daily and monthly needs. Then depending on the amount of funds, you have and the horizon of when you need funds your financial advisor can help you to select investments for long term returns.
Your first goal should be to protect your principle. In times of rapidly declining currency or hyperinflation, it really means protecting the value of your funds. That is where precious metals and diversified foreign currencies can play a role. They often have a rising reverse ratio in value to a falling currency.
[Midnight Blue] Taxation is another issue. If you don’t need the funds for a long term or want to just build a nest egg for future generation financial security, then invest enough funds to generate residual income to support your standard of life you desire, allowing for possible inflation. Yo
u will have to pay taxes on this income. So you should balance your current needs and future plans. Insurance and annuities sometimes can work for these needs. Retain the proper advisors. In general, when it comes to long term investments, the longer your commitment, the higher the return.
However, two things should be kept in mind, the longer the term, the more things can change, both personally and in the economic situation. Here creating growing future value is more important than generating taxable income.
Remember, currently, you usually do not have to pay taxes on capital gains until they are realized. Lastly, inheritance tax must be considered. I believe such taxes are unconstitutional because they are double taxation. However until they are changed, you should considered trusts, joint ownerships, pasting ownership over time and especially business trust which allow you to have trusty control over your funds and investments and then passing trusteeship to the next trustee of your choice without any taxable event.
There are limitations and taxation on net income earned by the business trust, but the salaries paid to the trustees are deductible to the trusts but taxable to the trustees who receive it. Be sure to retain a good trustee lawyer and tax advisor. Most importantly remember where your blessing comes from and give thanks by helping others. Remember, I am not a financial advisor, so retain the best you can find and make your own decisions wisely.
[Midnight Blue] I'll let you digest that post and be back later, hopefully with Intel, but this is Sat. Let's see if any announcements materialize
