JoeSchmoe: ready to know if this has all been a complete waste of time or not
Clay: @JoeSchmoe exactly
JoeSchmoe: need to move on with life, one way or the other. and you can say, “just move on”
JoeSchmoe: that dont fly, and you know it “just put your dinar in a drawer and live your life”…..DOESN’T HAPPEN

JoeSchmoe: “make like you don’t have dinar…..” YEA RIGHT!
Clay: @JoeSchmoe lol
JoeSchmoe: ONLY way to move on for most, is to either completely get rid of your dinar, or this thing to come to an end one way or the other

clay: @Omar big week with the kuwait conference
JoeSchmoe: I have prayed long and hard about this, not by saying “God please let the dinar rv so I can get out of my situation(s)”, but by saying,”Please guide me and let me know what to do with this. Give me a sign.” With no signs forthcoming over the long time, I can only deduce that my frustration and all the current doubt could be a sign
Clay: @JoeSchmoe I know
JoeSchmoe: People will say “Patience”…..BUT, patience is good IF you know…not words from gurus
JoeSchmoe: you can’t have true patience with speculation if you are in a bad spot

Omar: @JoeSchmoe yes! but keep hoping and praying God times is different than ours. ?
JoeSchmoe: every day….but I’m no church goer,so it wears thin on me
Dave: Morning all…seems like a lot of grant money is rolling in already…
Baxter: I dont know if thats good or bad… seems they get lazier every loan they get
Dave: grants are not loans…????
Baxter: thats give me money… correct
Dave: that’s my take….100 billion in free cash
Baxter: yep… thats worse bunch of con artists… stealing more money
Baxter: However… if just half of it stays in country.. it may help economic reforms
Dave: with concessions….? lot of transparency with this though
Baxter: I will pray for the best…as I have about had it after 12 years
Dave: if they cheat it must be repaid …grants come with rules
Dave: that would get the people back to work rebuilding
Baxter: yes… and it will take 10-2900 years to get Iraq rebuilt…. :yes:
LastChance: On the low side Iraq has been pumpih about 4 million barrels of oil a day. The last half of 2017 they’ve been pumping 5 million.
4 million multiplied by $40 a barrel a day — on the low side 160,000,000,000.
160,000,000,000 multiplied by 7 days a week = 1,120,000,000,000.
1,120,000,000,000 multiplied by 4 weeks amonth (taking a low number) = 4,480,000,000,000.
4,480,000,000,000 multiplied by 12 (taking a low number) = 53,760,000,000,000.
LastChance: grants are free, loans must be paid back
Dave: Plus the extra 100,000,000,000.usd from the donors
Dave: @LastChance chump change hehe
Dave: @LastChance brent crude 64.00 ish now not 40.00
Dave: @LastChance that’s like an additional 20,000,000,000 yr
Doug_W: just give me a few MILLION I’ll go away
Dave: @Doug_W me too

Dave: @Doug_W wish we could get our infrastructure rebuilt for FREE
meatball: I would settled for fixed highways
Dave: @meatball you should see our TransCanada Highway……..you would call that a dirt road in comparison
Dave: @meatball portions of it are still single lane Interstates almost like the Autobahn in Europe
Dave: @meatball no speed limits for most of it
Dave: Ever drive through Montana…….yrs ago they never enforced speed limits……just put crosses on the highway
