Pablo says(7:11 PM):
MD can't be here?
Savannah says to Pablo(7:11 PM):

magnetlady says(7:11 PM):
That would be awesome BGG if you take time to do that for everyone.
thomas1 says to BGG(7:12 PM):
it is up too ... do it only you feel in the mood if not we understand you do enough

Pablo says(7:12 PM):
She should have asked Santa for a new one.

BGG says to Pablo(7:12 PM):
She cannot - she's got some weird laptop internet modem that is giving her problems (bad battery)...

Holly1 says to BGG(7:12 PM):
First question From Holly1 .... when are we going ..... Rv Rv Rv
jims says(7:12 PM):
My favorite article the past few days was titled: "Iraqi banking Staff Recieve International Training"

BGG says to Holly1(7:12 PM):
OMG - knew that was coming...


magnetlady says(7:12 PM):
Is BGG doing a Q&A on phone or in chat

BGG says to magnetlady(7:13 PM):
Chat - for sure.


Holly1 says to BGG(7:13 PM):

plowboy says to sheila3(7:13 PM):
I believe that big tornado has moved on past us. But there are a lot more in the area

BGG says(7:14 PM):
Mrs BGG - would you mind saying a quick prayer to start us off right??


Mrs BGG says(7:14 PM):
Heavenly Father, we come to You by the Blood of Jesus! Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus in the Flesh. We are so grateful for our Lord and Savior! Thank You for Your Grace, Mercy, and forgiveness! We pray that You will bless each person and their families represented here tonight. We give You all the Glory, Honor, and Praise. In Jesus Name, Amen.


jims says(7:15 PM):
Another favorite article: "Diversify the Iraqi economy dream verifiable"


BGG says(7:16 PM):
Let's keep plowboy and everyone else in the path of the storms tonite in prayer - please.


BGG says(7:17 PM):

BGG says(7:18 PM):
Go.


maine says(7:19 PM):
?
Michael Morgan says(7:19 PM):
What's new?

BGG says(7:20 PM):
Holly1 - to answer your ?? directly - I haven't the FOGGIEST... however, has ANYONE BEEN WATCHING FOX?? The only story eclipsing ALL the 2015 news is the current offensive in Iraq. That's it - the only story. We'll get to why it is so important later...
BGG says(7:21 PM):
(P.S. anyone who thinks it isn't has - NO CLUE as to what they are talking about.)
Baxter1243 says(7:21 PM):
?
BGG says to Michael Morgan(7:21 PM):

BGG says to maine(7:21 PM):

maine says(7:21 PM):

jims says(7:22 PM):
We are waiting for them to change the rate

BGG says to maine(7:22 PM):
I am not sure - but I am heartened by recent events (to be sure). Things seem to be "on the turn..."


maine says(7:22 PM):
thx BGG


larrykn says(7:23 PM):
?


BGG says(7:23 PM):
Tonite will be short - hang in there... let's GO!!
BGG says to larrykn(7:23 PM):
Go.

larrykn says(7:23 PM):
BGG do you know if they got the HCL done


trout1 says(7:24 PM):
?


_firefly_ says(7:24 PM):
Iraq is even on my comcast screen saver !!!!!!
Pablo says(7:24 PM):
?

BGG says to larrykn(7:25 PM):
I highly doubt a "constitutional" HCL got done... more likely an extension of the "codified" HCL "built into" the next budget as was done in 2015 - however, that and more commitment to live up to it will do... for now.


jims says(7:25 PM):
?
Mrs BGG says to trout1(7:25 PM):
Go
larrykn says(7:25 PM):
ty BGG


BGG says to trout1(7:27 PM):

BGG says to trout1(7:27 PM):
going twice...


trout1 says(7:27 PM):
in your opinion are we loking at a world wide event on the scale like others have claimed but not only with dinar
trout1 says(7:27 PM):
sorry typing issues


BGG says to trout1(7:28 PM):
that is HORSE $4!t... Iraq is about Iraq...
BGG says to trout1(7:28 PM):
it will be "worldwide" - but not like that...


trout1 says(7:29 PM):
nice i like that answer

BGG says to trout1(7:29 PM):
it won't "shake the foundations" of the world economic system...


_firefly_ says to BGG(7:29 PM):
I think trout is talking about the so called global reset


BGG says to trout1(7:29 PM):
we will be lucky if it shows up on the radar - AT ALL...
BGG says to trout1(7:29 PM):
or...
BGG says to trout1(7:30 PM):
better yet...
BGG says to trout1(7:30 PM):
WE will be VERY LUCKY... if it doesn't show up at all.
BGG says to trout1(7:30 PM):
(truth be told)...


larrykn says(7:31 PM):
yes just us few Million people will know about it


BGG says to larrykn(7:31 PM):
I think it's less than that - I've been told (by CBI insiders) I'm probably right...

larrykn says(7:32 PM):
really that is interesting


BGG says to larrykn(7:32 PM):
(and no - I'm not naming the "insiders"...)


larrykn says(7:32 PM):
lol
trout1 says(7:32 PM):
all very intresting and also explains how the process could take time if the whole world was at stake we would know im sure
_firefly_ says to BGG(7:32 PM):
There are 321 mil people in the USA. # mil doesn't even make a blip on the screen
_firefly_ says to BGG(7:32 PM):
3 mil


BGG says to larrykn(7:32 PM):

jims says(7:34 PM):
Have you seen the article: Iraqi banking staffs recieve international training...? That let me know we are on the doorstep



BGG says to wmawhite(7:34 PM):

Pablo says(7:34 PM):

wmawhite says(7:34 PM):
Concur


BGG says to jims(7:34 PM):
That makes me smile inside...
BGG says to jims(7:35 PM):

jims says(7:35 PM):
i know...right?
jims says(7:35 PM):
There have been a lor of article in the last few days concerning economic success
jims says(7:36 PM):
They...Iraqis are all expecting it. And they are protesting that it hasnt happened already
trout1 says(7:36 PM):
?

BGG says to jims(7:36 PM):
Iraqi "gas bags" getting an "IMF red-hot poker" where it does us all some good.


Mrs BGG says to puffdragon(7:37 PM):
Go
puffdragon says(7:37 PM):
Any truth to a maliki arrest ?
jims says(7:38 PM):
Its Moving like wet butter on a hot window...


BGG says to puffdragon(7:38 PM):
I doubt it - just yet... if Ahmed Chalibi made the "notable death list of 2015" (on FOX - toninte) - Maliki being (actually) arrested will be HUGE NEWS.
BGG says to puffdragon(7:39 PM):
(tonite) Woops...


puffdragon says to BGG(7:39 PM):

Mrs BGG says to trout1(7:39 PM):
Go
trout1 says(7:40 PM):
so we can suppose that china russia and several others do intend to profit from what is happenng only, and no real change to there economic system other than business profit
Pablo says(7:40 PM):
?


BGG says to trout1(7:41 PM):
That... my friend - is a GREAT POINT...
BGG says to trout1(7:41 PM):
can't leave them out... and
BGG says to trout1(7:41 PM):
if one follows our current track record - what is the one thing we HAVEN'T GIVEN AWAY??
BGG says to trout1(7:42 PM):
tada...


Mrs BGG says to Pablo(7:42 PM):
Go

Pablo says(7:42 PM):
Based upon SteveI's comments on the Observer, I get the impression that some Iraq banks were either expecting the RV a couple of days ago, or else any time now. Is that what you are hearing?


BGG says to Pablo(7:42 PM):
I have heard that rumor - it is not impossible...


larrykn says(7:43 PM):
?
jims says(7:44 PM):
?
Mrs BGG says to larrykn(7:45 PM):
Go
larrykn says(7:45 PM):
the new fiscal year sounds good to me


BGG says to Pablo(7:45 PM):
Dude...


trout1 says(7:45 PM):
very intresting


BGG says to Pablo(7:45 PM):
I'm really not trying to sound like a " Magic 8 ball"...
BGG says to Pablo(7:46 PM):
I'm just not sure how much I believe it... maybe 50/50...
BGG says to Pablo(7:46 PM):
maybe a little better...


poppy3 says to Pablo(7:46 PM):
Steve1 was dead on this time according to what has been said and been indicated by their own banks . LIKE MY SOURCES ALL BEEN EXPECTING RATE TO SHOW SINCE LAST WEEK THRU JAN 2ND AT THE LATEST IF NOT SOMEONE OR SOMETHING UNEXPECTED HAS OCCURED TO SLOW THE CBI FROM THEIR OWN STATED PROGRESS. POPPY3



BGG says to larrykn(7:47 PM):
Amen...


Mrs BGG says to jims(7:47 PM):
Go
Michael Morgan[814779051983617@facebook..] says(7:47 PM):
Amen
jims says(7:47 PM):
Heres another one... Based upon the interpretation of the CBI release that They told the banks to hold because they are still calculating the new rate... So... a 1 to 1 rate would not require caculation... they are going to release a 3-4 rate
jims says(7:48 PM):
IMHO



poppy3 says to Pablo(7:48 PM):
UNTIL SOMETHING ELSE CHANGES AND LEADERSHIP SAYS SOMETHING DIFFERENT W CAN ONLY STAND ON THEIR STATEMENTS AS THE FACTS TODAY. POPPY3


Pablo says to poppy3(7:48 PM):
Slow it? Slow it to beyond Jan 2?
MArco says(7:51 PM):
does anyone know when the fiscal year starts for Iraq. I thought last year it was October. Was it moved to Jan 1st/


BGG says to MArco(7:51 PM):
Someone here will know.


MArco says(7:51 PM):
thanks
_firefly_ says to BGG(7:51 PM):
I believe it's January


BGG says to Pablo(7:51 PM):
wrong question - ENTIRELY.


larrykn says(7:51 PM):
Jan 1st



jims says to MArco(7:51 PM):
Its always been Jan 1st for Iraq... not that it matters


BGG says to MArco(7:51 PM):
badabing!!


billuke says(7:52 PM):
yest Jan 1st

MArco says(7:52 PM):
thanks, was it Oct last year??
jims says to MArco(7:52 PM):
no
MArco says(7:52 PM):
ok ty
jims says to MArco(7:52 PM):
only the US



BGG says(7:52 PM):
and since I focus little on Economics and far more on the politics - you all ready??


Pablo says(7:52 PM):
Yep.
billuke says(7:52 PM):
think the Oct 1 was a dinarland rumor
MArco says(7:53 PM):
yepper


BGG says(7:53 PM):
hint - it's been playing over and over and over on TV...


larrykn says(7:53 PM):
Ramadi has been retaken and Mosul is next


BGG says(7:54 PM):
Abadi has listened to reason - and used Sunni units of the Iraqi Regular Army - NOT SHIA PMU's...
BGG says(7:55 PM):
this is a HUGE shift in the political calculous within the Baghdad GOI.
BGG says(7:55 PM):
he's relying on the Sunnis to get it done.
BGG says(7:55 PM):
here's why that is CRITICAL
BGG says(7:56 PM):
Abadi using them is the INCLUSION this whole process has been missing... why is that important??
BGG says(7:56 PM):
IMF and WB would NEVER let a totalitarian regime have their way. Real or not - Abadi is making the right moves.


_firefly_ says to BGG(7:57 PM):
National Reconsiliation

_firefly_ says to BGG(7:57 PM):

MArco says(8:00 PM):

poppy3 says to larrykn(8:01 PM):
HATE TO DISAPOINT ALL THE NEWS MEDIA THAT WANTS TO TALK AND PAINT DETRIMENTAL ANYTHING AGAINST IRAQ . THERE WAS NOTHING TO TAKE CONTROL OF BECAUSE BECAUSE ISIS NEVER HAD CONTROL OF ANY TOWN IN IRAQ NOT EVEN MOSUL. VERY SMALL GROUPS OF ISIS EVEN THERE AND SURE NEVER CONTROLED THE TOWN. NEVER IN CONTROL OF OIL FIELDS EITHER . THE LIES FROM THE MEDIA ARE FABRICATED FOR THERE OWN POINT OF VIEW TO MAKE THE ADMINISTRATION LOOK GOOD. ALL BULL AND WHY OUR TROOPS ON THE GROUND HATE THEIR COWARD IN CHIEF THAT MAKE THE TROOPS ON THE GROUND LOOK LIKE THEY HAVENT BEEN DOING THEIR JOB . POPPY3


jims says to poppy3(8:03 PM):
Disagree witth the ISIS stuff... O stuff is spot on
Mrs BGG says to Pablo(8:04 PM):
Go
Pablo says(8:04 PM):
Does this mean that national guard law has been passed too?


poppy3 says to larrykn(8:04 PM):
YA'LL CAN LISTEN TO THE NEWS BUT I BELIEVE THE FIGHTING MEN ON THE GROUND. THE GUYS HANGING THEIR ASxxS OUT PROTECTING THOSE AREAS WITHOUT ANY SUPPORT FROM THE JERK IN CHARGE. POPPY3




jims says(8:05 PM):
Thats why they have all the international support... even Russia, who doesnt use the same ROEs that our troops have to


BGG says to Pablo(8:06 PM):
I doubt the NG Law has been agreed on - but the recent moves by Abadi will help bring everyone on board.


larrykn says(8:06 PM):
?
Mrs BGG says to larrykn(8:06 PM):
Go
larrykn says(8:07 PM):
