Tony: It’s 8/8 and we are ready to get this show on the road!
Pam: What is DC’s height? I want to have someone to play with under the bus here. Tony never throws Ray under the bus anymore…
Tony: Good morning, TNT! Today is Friday, August 8, 2014. Before I start the call, I’m looking at the board and I see some familiar numbers… oh, they’ve dropped off! IF you have been on the call in the last few weeks, let someone have a turn. We’ve been getting great questions and comments, but we would like to hear from others, too.
Before we start, we have people from TNT and OM show up at my mother’s service – thank you for showing up, sending flowers, etc. I talked to some people yesterday about it, and they seemed surprised that you all showed up from the radio show and OpenMIke, especially the ministers who took part.
We’ll do our normal call today, with DC doing East to West, and a more in-depth understanding of the difference between what you see on television, what we are hearing, and what’s actually taking place in the Iraq, and hopefully why as well. At the end of the call, when certain announcements are made – even in the last 48 hours – when this is all over you will have learnt something you never would have thought of, including some politics, how business is really done, and helped you to look at the news a little differently. Our aim is to expose you to a part of the world that you would never have known or believed otherwise. That’s what I hope we get out of this, and take forward after we have money in our pockets. The news will not stop, but we will have a better understanding of how we can help and fit in with all races and ethnicities – all parts of mankind – because we should have experienced some of it. It should have taken away some of your prejudices, at least a little bit. As we go through this today, look at that and what we’ve gone through in the last few years.
DC: Thanks for keeping us focused on the larger picture. East to West… we’ll spend a bit more time in Iraq because it’s been in the news more, and it looks very different from what we think here. Over in Iraq we have a PM selected and most cabinet members as well. The PM, Speaker and President are all ready to go, and everyone is under locked guard. They have announced in their television, newspapers and mosques that the PM will be announced on Sunday. There is much cheering at this and people dancing in the streets. That’s a great place for Iraq to be, and getting there peacefully. There has been a lot of jockeying to get all this done, inside and outside the country, and it is stabilizing.
We’ve seen some stuff from Maliki and his less friendly, less democratic colleagues. They have been causing havoc, but it’s more pinpoint than broad issues. Maliki is still there but I’m 95% sure the PM won’t be him. That should be released on Sunday. Any questions on parliament/politics in Iraq, Tony?
Tony: Communications blackout yesterday…?
DC: Yesterday morning, sometimes for fun I spend time on the phone with the Middle East first thing; it’s easy to get hold of my friends over there. Starting at 2 our time, I started having phone issues, and normally when there is a security reason they start interrupting communications, and this went on through midday. I did get hold of some friends through secure sat-phones, and then we found others were having trouble, too. They were prepping for an announcement and RV functions. Our understanding is that the prep is taking a bit of time, maybe a bit overboard. For those who have a technical background, it’s very difficult to shut out an entire country, so there must have been significant effort to do that. It’s a positive sign that they are taking seriously, for a specific purpose.
Tony: If anyone listening, we are giving the best information we can. We did NOT get any direction this morning, just not to beat any individual up. We are just helping to keep dinarians calm, still within the family. I hope everyone understands that. Let’s go to the news briefing, yesterday in the news they talked about charging M with war crimes?
DC: That plays an important part in the stopping and starting with last-minute changes. Good old Maliki was a rebel leader, and most of his family was killed by Ba’athist regime under Saddam Hussein. His group was doing guerrilla warfare in the surrounding countries, in exile, being hunted by Saddam’s goons looking to kill him. He saw his own brother killed in front of him, and most of the male members of his family are dead in those 20-30 years of running from Saddam. He’s looking for retribution, and when he got into power, he went after the Ba’athists, which is understandable. What he did, though, was to take it too far by all accounts. He tortured people, set up assassinations and all the rest. Many Ba’athists were prosecuted, but also there were camps and other bad things that Maliki directed personally or was part of the team. He’s don’t some other rough things because he grew up playing rough and that’s how he led as well. As PM, he did take some positive measures, but he also burned a lot of bridges. Some of the families of those killed want charges against Maliki. Things started, and those against M would bring pressure against M, his family and his team. That os the main reason we’ve had all these stops and starts. A lot of pressure boils down to the skeletons in M’s closet, and he reacts and his opponents are reacting to those, back and forth. As he ends his administration, he was jockeying for immunity. His position is that he was just doing his job, and his opponents are saying he went way too far. That should all give context to why Maliki is still involved. He gave a large party of his life to his party and the various aspects.
Tony: On Wednesday, 7,500 families at the Hague were making this public, with television articles and so on to ensure that Maliki does NOT get that illegal third term as PM.
DC: He’s going to have to spend a lot of time and energy on dealing with criminal charges rather than interrupting the new government. I want to compare and contrast that with the US system, as most on the line are American. Most other countries have also had the precedent where the former presidents, etc., the leader steps back. M has refused to step back, and everyone knows he is there, and they want him to back out. It’s like a former President refusing to leave the White House, and so people are bringing up serious accusations of what he has done.
Tony: There is no way, regardless of what is going on, that any country would actively take out another country’s President. We’re not going to do that, no matter what! The fact that he is who he is, with all these connections, was of concern to the people coming into power. Certain protections had to be put in place before they would move. Even though there are new people, they are still scared of Maliki, and that is what we have been waiting for, those protections being in place.
DC: That’s enough about the political stuff. Let’s talk about ISIL/ISIS. This was started as a militant organization against folks in the Syrian government, like a bad franchisee of al-Queda, run by bright Sunnis who don’t mind a fight. Maliki has been focused on the Sunnis (as opponents) because most Ba’athists were Sunnis, and they spent so much time hitting on everyone else. Maliki is taking vengeance, basically, for what they did to him and his family. The Sunnis are a huge population, and they have felt left tin the dark with this Maliki government. When ISIS came along and stood up for Sunni rights, they were welcomed in the majority-Sunni regions like Faluja. That is why ISIS have been successful, so long as they don’t do anything too outrageous. Instead of resisting, the Sunnis are letting them in and letting them bring in arms and foods and policing the situation as a pseudo-government in those occupied cities and regions. There isn’t much resistance. In order to keep power, M wanted a state of emergency to be declared, so he told some of the top generals to put down their arms and go on vacation, that they can subdue them later and look like heroes. That’s how 1,700 folks with AK-47s could take over a town with 7,000 armed troops in a few hours. Maliki told them to back off. However, that became a wildfire that took on a life of its own and is now a major problem. It took a lot of people by surprise.
In most places, ISIS is easily routed; in others, they are fairly well trained and do a good job. Their tactical plans have been straightforward; they take over the soft targets where there is not much resistance such as oil refineries and bridges rather than towns. So it looks like they are everywhere, but it’s really more infrastructure points. That can be dealt with by military forces fairly easily. When the Iraqi army gets their back up, they are effective, especially with helps from Special Forces from many countries in the world, advising and equipping the Iraqi army. That’s the background of what’s going on.
Tony: Even though it looks terrible on CNN, and parts are terrible, it can be controlled as soon as they want it to be. Meanwhile, there is a reason for how it looks that we will talk about later. That’s enough to let you know that what you’re seeing is not everything that is going on. There is a control mechanism that is only partially activated, for a reason.
DC: Iraq is important to understand, and I’m sure we all have friends asking questions about what is going on.
Tony: I want to move to something else, but first I want the people of Iraq to know we hate seeing them go through this. We feel their pain and what is affecting people’s personal lives with their families. We are sorry they have to go through that. We are not just here for the money and how fast we can get paid; we want it to come to an end for you and your families as well.
DC: A lot of this violence is needless. However, Iraq will soon be such a shining star that is will shock everyone, and be something to be proud of.
How does Ukraine relate to this? There are a lot of the same players involved. What has hurt and helped is that the gripes and complaints in Ukraine have filtered into Iraq, such as Russian actions and aggression spilling over. Many have been ignoring that Iraq was going to purchase many things from Russia, such as arms, because Russia doesn’t ask as many questions. This situation with Ukraine has shifted world sentiment so that they feel they cannot trust Russian any longer. They are wondering who they can trust.
In the US, the UN Security Council is if anything over-eager about the Iraqi PM, and also helping with humanitarian issues in the north of Iraq. They are being pushy about getting this RV moving on. The RV is a stabilizing force because rich people don’t fight – they have police and lawyers to help in their security, The UN is pushing on that as well.
The IMF is coordinating timing and keeping the peace with everyone, and it’s all lined up nicely for the RV. Some in the admin who were not supportive in the past are now feeing Iraq has got to a stable point, more of less, and that this RV will help. They are putting their backs into it, and we’re grateful for that.
Tony: Iraq says they will name their PM on Sunday, but they were going to do that on Wednesday, Monday, etc. They keep wanting extensions and someone has been agreeing with them. What is big and different about today in the US?
DC: President Obama got on world television last night and said that Iraq is announcing their PM in the next few days. And that puts pressure on everyone to stop farting around and get on with it. What’s different is that he got on TV and said it in public. He and his advisors agree that the RV situation needs to be in order to help stabilize the country. That is what’s needed: a joint government and a joint deal with the currency reforms. That is finally completed. Also, the administration.
Tony: The President said they would not give Iraq any help until Maliki was gone and they had a stable government that we could see. That help started yesterday.
DC: And we couldn’t’ get through to Iraq yesterday. This is a wonderful thing, that help is now flowing. I myself have been surprised by something else: several folks have said in the news that President Obama and team have found an extra 500 billion dollars through various means. Where do you have 500 billion dollars just show up? Under his mattress? I can picture him asking Michelle for his keys.
Tony: This in not like the money Maliki found two years ago in his closet.
DC: There are articles in US news sources about that, and part of that information is coming out about where it’s showing up from: tax receipts, retirements, and costs associated with domestic issues. Think of the poverty that will be diminished by this, the amount of food, shelter, clothing and all the rest that churches will not need to find now that this 500 billion dollars has been.
Tony: This is part of exposing what we are part of. There will never be an announcement on the evening news that we have all this extra money suddenly. This is the start of it, and they will do something with that to generate more money so that the deficit can come down and there will eventually be a surplus. We cannot just wipe out the deficit without explaining what we are doing there.
DC: Not everyone will take it well that for a thousand bucks they could have become millionaires. Instead, U6 (the underemployment rate) will start to plummet, while the economy heats up. The UB number is what the Fed and all other economists pay attention to. Right now it is 12-13. So if you had to take a job way below your skill set just to feed your family, that would show up in the U-6, as when a skilled engineer is waiting tables. They combine unemployment and underemployment to get that U-6 figure. Higher values there tends to freeze the economy. Once that number starts creeping down, which it will, fast, then it means people will be employed at the best level possible. Once it gets to 10 or 8% then it will be hotter than hell and affecting everyday folks who are employed and can afford what they require while working at a job that suits their skill level.
The general public will see the economy finally taking off and going gang-busters; tax receipts go up, costs on domestic programs down, and school funding goes up. The mass population will see that the economy is improving, out of the blue.
Tony: So far, everything should tell you that you had a great day yesterday, even if you didn’t know it. That is continuing today with what we know is going on. No matter what others in DinarLand are telling you, about the bad and crazy news. The only crazy thing would be in the RV happens TODAY; otherwise, you’ve had a great day!
DC: All the guys in the UST and the Fed are getting through the final checklist, meeting with banks and Homeland Security, getting ready for the distribution. In the UST, there are meetings happening all over, and most people believe that this is really going through now. I have had surprised calls myself! This morning a meeting that was supposed to take an hour yesterday afternoon took four hours, because everyone was making sure they were getting ready properly. Banks are ready and prepped, ditto bank security. Homeland is ready. All the notifications have gone out to all the right people, with their ‘final briefing’ one more time, again.
Tony: They are saying the same thing we are saying: The PM will be announced Sunday.
DC: Everyone is lined up, prepared, ready to go, and let’s pray this is the final thing.
Tony: It’s not Sunday yet.
DC: About timing on Sunday, etc… Iraq is an Arab country, and those countries are not driven by time the way we are in the US. If we say 9am, Tony will call me at 9.01 to ask what’s happening. Timing in Arab countries is more of a strong suggestion, so if there are all these mosque announcements, those are important, but it may not be on the morning news. Just relax, take a chill pill, and let the news come through.
Tony: This is their moment, their currency and their life, and they are just as proud as we are. So let’s go to some questions: this first one has been holding for three hours. Caller, let me ask you to tell me what this means to you, what are the first things you look to do when this happens, how you intend to pay this forward.
859 caller: Definitely paying it forward to the Wounded Warriors, St Jude’s Hospital, and also we want to build a ranch where we can have wounded vets and disabled children come as a retreat where they can ride, etc. Also we want to take a vacation and just relax after the last 2-3 years. So we’ll probably go in a loop, visit family and make sure they are taken care of.
Tony: Everyone wants to feed, clothe and shelter others, but sometimes people need to have some fun as well, so I like your ideas.
Caller: Especially when they have been under stress and strain. My son had to have surgery at three months old, and put a lot of pressure on the whole family. My husband and I actually divorced over it, and the doctor said that this is very common.
Something that was discussed a long time ago, but as far as the gifting letters go… is that just for the dinar? Or for cash?
Tony: The gifting letters are for dinar/dong. If you give them cash and it’s over $14,000, they will have to pay the tax.
Caller: If I had more money I would buy more dinar to give to this or that, but I didn’t, so we can give them cash, I guess.
Tony: I don’t know if this will work, but if I had to go over the $14,000 limit with someone, I would personally do a joint back account with them, and let them spend freely on the debit card, or I would do a trust. There are other ways to do that without being double-taxed.
DC: Check with your financial adviser, that’s the best thing.
817 caller: I’m from Fort Worth TX. I’m doing great this morning. [Condolences] Hi to my Texas boy DC. It’s too dang hot here now. There are ten of us here, all invested, and once this thing goes, I hope to build 20 homes for wounded warriors in the first year, and then keep building houses for them. I’m in the construction business and it seems logical for me to do. These would be completely free to wounded warriors, with a bank account to get going with. My dad was a war hero from the Korean War, with two Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart. When we went to the VA hospital, it was a rough part of time. I would like to build something like a MacDonald House where families could stay in comfort while their loved ones are being seen to.
Tony/DC: Wow, that is amazing about your father.
Caller: I would like to set up a place in the neighbourhood with musical instruments so that the kids could play and keep off the streets. Also this morning I got gas and a Vietnam vet was there, and I wish I had gift cards to hand out to soldiers to thank them for their service.
DC: I do something similar, not $1,000, but buying soldiers a meal in an airport and such. It think that is wonderful!
Caller: When I was working on Fort Knox, I would often go to Applebee’s for lunch or dinner and treat a solider when I could, on my company. I have one friend who owes the IRS a hundred grand – can he run down and pay the IRS when this happens?
Tony: While exchanging, I would ask the bank for a cashier’s check for that amount.
256 caller: I’m fantastic, especially with what DC says about Iraq getting their PM on Sunday. I have one church under construction, and other just fixing to start; I’ve given them each dinar and hope they will get the contract rate. I’ve given 25K dinars each to five different pastors, and have similar amounts going to other churches. I’ve been a Christian for many years, and I thank God for this opportunity. I’ve done some MLM with Amway in 1983 and hung with it until about five years ago. Who would ever know that God would lay a blessing like this on such a small investment, and allow me to help so many people? I am also a Vietnam vet, and was going to have a marina here in Alabama, with a motel, and everything would be free to vets. It was a good idea, but the place got sold due to delays.
A couple weeks ago, DC said they had all agreed on a time. Have be passed that time?
DC: Unfortunately, the whole process got away from us. We don’t want to talk out of school, but every possible news source is now saying that the PM will be announced on Sunday and we pray to God that they will do that. Our own President has put on that pressure and said it will be announced in a few days.
Caller: The other day I was on the call but hit a dead spot; something was mentioned about the Zimbabwe currency. Do you still think it will be in he same basket as dinar/dong?
DC: Yes, it looks like it.
Caller: I bought some from Sterling, not a lot, but it looks like we might end up with a good bit, as an investment. I just wondered if it will go at the same time. [Condolences again] Take care, Tony and DC. [Appreciation] Have a wonderful day.
704 caller: I’m from Charlotte NC, first-time caller, and I’m super-fantastic. [Appreciation] For any folks in Iraq listening to us, hang in there. God/Allah/Divine intelligence is with you! My passion is a bit radical. My goal is to implement ‘heaven on earth’. There is a plan written, there is an internet site, and it’s simple. It will take 10 to 20 years, and it’s simple in that we will take care of five major systems on this planet, and change the foundation from survival or fear-based to a love-based foundation. The first on is education (then health+wellness, money, politics and belief systems). We will institute ‘talent-based’ education, so that people can work on developing those natural inborn talents instead of waiting until they are in their 30s. I hope you guys will endorse this. It’s God’s idea, not ours, and Tony, we would like you to be a spokesman for it! This is a do-able thing. When they read it, people are blown away. [lost signal here]
My question is: Is the plan for instructional calls post-RV still in place?
Tony: Yes, Dc was talking bout that his morning, working with the banks and doing those call.
DC: This is one of the plans that they were talking about. Plan A has Tony, myself and 3-4 other credible gurus talking with people every day for 10-14 days, explaining what’s going on. That should make the exchange process as smooth as possible for everybody out there, the 4.5 million people who have this and also for the banks. It will be easier if we answer all the question than to have everyone rush the banks and ask the same questions over and over again. Plan B is ‘everyone for themselves’ with the 800 numbers going out but without our websites or instructional calls, and we will be under NDAs so we cannot talk. Plan C is one or two calls explaining what is happening, but after that you’re on your own. Plan D is for the big groups process everything through, with the ¼ million going in through groups and the remaining folks going through like ordinary currency exchanges. Those are the four possibilities. Our understanding they will go with Plan A, where we can update everyone as much as possible.
Tony: That would be me, DC and three other gurus, so five people total. We won’t be the only place – there will be three more. Also, Plan D or the group plan, includes people listening to the call as part of that. You are not the general public as in the 4.5 million who don’t listen. They may be treated differently.
Caller: Are you going to be able to handle a million people on the call? I have ten people that I inform, and I’ve told them to get on the calls! I cannot brief them all.
Tony: We will talk for 2-3 hours per day, and the calls will be recorded. They will have to get in where they fit it.
Caller: How many rates are bubbling here? Is it still four rates, or three rate or what?
DC: WE don’t know. We know of at least two, don’t know if there will be four. It’s just changed so many dang times; we’ll just have to see how it comes out.
720 caller: I’m doing pretty good. All this talk about helping all the veterans, last week the last surviving member of the Enola Gay died. That plane is the last flying plane from that era, and they are now building another one called ‘Doc’. That will be the second plane to fly, and it’s such an amazing thing to watch such a plane fly, and watch the faces of the WWII veterans, and hearing their stories. I want to contribute to restoring that plane Doc and the Confederate Air Force that keeps people informed about how we keep people free. I love the idea of building houses for veterans as well.
My wife is from Mexico and I have three stepdaughters that I will gift dinar to. Will they be able to get the contract rate? They are resident aliens who have been here for more than five years. The oldest is 22, then 18 and 15.
Tony: I don’t know about the 15-year-old, but the other two should be fine; the only requirement I’ve heard is resident for more than six months.
Caller: I had dinar in my Roth IRA; I called them because it is stored and I was trying to figure out how to get the depository to take action. Those with reserves are going to be pissed off when they realize a lot of people are doing the same thing. I am thinking that they and I will have to take the street rate. Maybe I should pull the dinar out, get the contract rate, and pay the taxes. I would still come out ahead.
Tony: I don’t think you’re going to have time to do that, personally.
Caller: Nothing’s happened yet, and it took me three weeks to deal with the depository. So I cannot imagine the backlog when this thing hits the fan. [Appreciation]
281 caller: I got you, Tony! You are calling the great state of Texas! Suck it up! [Condolences] I called in once before, and I reiterate that what you guys have given us in intel is far beyond the time we have given up to listen. I kept thinking this would happen, and stopped giving for the month. Has anything in the donation process changed?
Tony: No. Go to Paypal and do it there. Honestly, I met with a friend yesterday and he asked if I knew that there was something to donate, on the site. I didn’t, because I keep hoping this is over. If it doesn’t happen by Monday, I will think again, but I don’t want to have the trouble of the PO Box and all the rest. We always need donations, but hopefully this will be over by Monday. But thanks for thinking about it.
Caller: My question is about the gift letter. I went on site to pull it up again, because I take this seriously now and get it done this weekend. There were letters about dinar, but I’m more about the dong, so can I just change the Word document?
Tony: There is no official document; you can do it any way you choose, no big deal. I don’t know which document you are using, but I got mine from Pam! I’ve changed it for each currency, but it’s the same document.
Caller: The bigger challenge for me is that we don’t know what the value will be. We know what it is today, obviously, and in some documents they ask what the proposed value is.
Tony: I put the value of the day it was when I gave it out. If it was a million dinar, it cost a thousand bucks, and that was the value of the gift. If that changes afterwards, that is the recipient’s issue. One guy put the currency and the gifting letter, dated before the RV, in a sealed envelope and told them not to open them until the RV. I did that, notarized and all, and it was their currency from that point.
Caller: I want to give my family members and a few friends a certain amount…
Tony: Base it on a rate of $3.50, which may turn out to be the market rate.
Caller: What will we do with what we have? Three years ago I was working with a particular group, and realized that I wanted to be a philanthropist. I think this opportunity is God responding to the desire of my heart. To be a philanthropist, you have to have something to give, and the stage has broadened in a spectacular way. We thought we would ask everyone to bring in all their bills, which the church would pay so they could be debt-free. That is something we would like to accomplish and give. Also, we want to help with disaster relief; now we can give something and also now we can go there and be able to assist. We’re excited about that and all the lives that will be changed from what we do.
Tony: One of the things I want to do is that every time I go out to eat, I leave a $100 tip. I think people working in that industry, $100 makes a difference in their lives.
Caller: There is a guy who gives very sizable tips AND he also buys someone dinner, just someone he selects in the restaurant. We can do that as well.
Tony: My mother passed away on my son’s birthday, and that messes his birthday up from now on. I want to be happy for him, but… In the ceremony, the preacher talked about this being a ‘rebirth’, and it hit me that this was her new birthday with Christ. So my son gets to celebrate one of her birthdays with her! The reason I mention this is that if you can pay everyone ‘s bills in the church, taking them back to zero, that is probably better than the best investment in the world. They may just have their pay check, but they can start their live over as older and wiser people.
520 caller: I’m so glad you took my call! I want to share some of my ideas to help people. So many have already been mentioned and everyone has the right idea: building homes, providing education, places for people to go. IN my community, 17 public schools have closed down through lack of work. Those buildings can be turned into places where people can live, children can come in off the streets with basketball courts and playing fields where they can feel safe. In areas where incomes are so low, kids reach out to their ‘home boys’ and drugs. But we each have dream and a vision, and those same kids might be the ones to find the ways to clean our air and water, clear toxic soil, etc. Most states give tax breaks to any building or site or project in a redevelopment area, or finding/using alternative forms of energy. These schools could be converted into great projects AND put people to work. People want a hand-up, not a hand-out, and this would provide kids with school loans they have to pay off, non-profit organizations, people who want to work with animals. I have lists and lists of idea for everything that’s been talked about. I would love to share them but have no way of doing so. But the school buildings are something for people to look at. Latch-key kids could have a place to go, hiring people who cannot get jobs, young people who are fresh out of college. You can put them to work!
Tony: That is a great idea; that’s why we are asking people what they are doing, so people can copy the ideas they like the best. That’s why we’ve been doing these last few calls, to share the ideas. If we cannot all get together, at least groups can talk about these ideas.
Caller: Many want to rescue dogs and cats, but there are not homes for all of them. Any dog can be trained, and maybe we could hire dog-trainers for different dog professions. What you want to do with the children is remarkable, but kids in foster homes want families, and adoption is so difficult. Maybe people could work on new processes for that. My first priority is neuro-surgery, and I cannot use the computer, but after that I’ll do what I can.
Tony: She gave us a lot of great ideas, so if people need them, listen to this call again.
864 caller: We talked about a spouse having a separate appointment. Is that beneficial or will it show up as the same.
Tony: You are different individuals with different SS numbers. You can each call the 800 number, and it would enable you to hear what different banks are doing, different caps, and different packages based on your volume. You have to make your own decisions on that.
Caller: People on the forum have given us lots of good information and educational materials, and what we can do. I appreciate all of those people.
Tony: I appreciate them, too. That’s what the forum is for, to help each other. We all appreciate what everyone does on the forum.
Caller: We gifted currency to help all our siblings to get out of debt and start afresh, of course paying tithes first, and then we will work with charities that have low overhead with high output.
DC: Bottom line, I want to thank everyone for sharing their PIF opportunities we will have very soon. That makes the 60 hours a week we spend here worthwhile, helping people staying the gave so that they can help their favourite charities. Everyone says that the Iraqi PM will be announced on Sunday and the RV will follow very quickly after that. Be cautious with the news. Everyone is ready for this to go, and we are looking forward to moving on!
Pam: That was a great call and I appreciated all the information DC and Tony provided – a wonderful lesson in what is really going on. I want to thank members for telling us what they intend to do. We have 20,000 members who will change the world! It’s been a long wait but worth waiting for!
Ray: It’s time to go already? It’s fantabulous Friday. Have a great time. The guy with the Roth issue, come talk to me on OpenMike. If you don’t know how to do that, my email address is on the forum, and he can email me. I don’t get the PM, but do get emails.
Tony: OpenMike is even more privileged than the forum. Ray spends 18 hours per day on OM; every time I call him he is there. Thanks for that.
I do want to say to the people of Iraq that we see what is on television, and even though some is just a distraction, some of it is real, painful things that are affecting people’s lives. We are sorry to hear about it, and God willing, it will be over quickly and you will be shining stars. Whether they know it or not, we know that Iraq is the foundation for this happening. The citizens of Iraq paid a great penalty for that, and we appreciate it. Also, to those who have helped in the four years, and the government people who aided us in intel and all the rest without knowing if that would cost your job… we are all agreed now that these are the right things to do, keeping all dinarians informed with the best information/explanation we could at the time, even knowing some people didn’t believe or understand it. Some things I didn’t believe because I didn’t have all the information about the Prosperity Packages, but when I put people on the list and then they received money, then I could believe it. That will happen to some people with the dinar. Some have sold their dinar and they will be sorry for the rest of their lives because they didn’t understand. Our goal was to keep you here until you could enjoy this whole change, and so that you can explain it to others – not only what we are doing, but why, not just the money but all the humanitarian projects you have in mind. We have all paid a price for this, but so long as people are helping the less fortunate, then it’s worth it, or at least was something I chose to do. Thanks to everyone. Hopefully the next call will be with 800 numbers and rejoicing. It may not be today, tomorrow or even Sunday by 5pm, but we know it’s coming. It’s been on their television today, and I put a lot of faith that our own President told us that he will only help Iraq if they do the right thing. He did that yesterday, and I hope it all comes through. If anything great happens, we’ll send out a tweet.
Pam: PaperBoy, one of our long-term Mods, had an accident spent the first half of this week in hospital. He will be laid up for the next few months, so please send him your prayers and good wishes. We have a fulltime Mod position empty, and we are sorry he’s going through so much pain. Thank you to all of our Mods.
Tony: I will relax and enjoy my weekend, not watching the clock but letting it come to me.
