The IMF meeting in Lima is today thru October 11th. Tony gave 404 a positive clue that she was right in hoping for the best outcome for that meeting. Soooo, the new window may be from now until the 11th. The 25th could be when the general public exchanges. Just saying.
Dansmore: Okay, a few months back a guy called on one of the calls and the guy said, “I have an IRS friend and he told me there will be no Fed tax on the exchange”… TONY said, “I am still going to hold 55% out just in case” I remember this because I thought to myself, Tony you are completely correct and I am going to hold 55% out also …
Vollmer: I am going to do what Tony said ,put 50% aside for Taxes till they make their minds up ,as Tony said it’s better to be safe than SORRY and boy will you be SORRY if you have spent that money and they say that will be 50% please or more !!!
Sabickford: Today I got my happy pills and my pissed off pills mixed up & I think I took one of each so I’m pissed off but I’m happy about it.

Zimbabwe in make-or-break debt talks

Zimbabwe will today present its debt clearance strategy to three preferred creditors as it seeks to unlock fresh capital.
BY NDAMU SANDU
Zimbabwe owes the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and the African Development Bank (AfDB) a combined $1,8 billion, which has to be extinguished to access cheap lines of credit.
Today’s meeting in the Peruvian capital, Lima, on the sidelines of the IMF/World Bank annual meetings comes on the back of moves by Zimbabwe to undertake painful reforms under the IMF’s supervised Staff Monitored Programme.
Zimbabwe seems to have got consensus from member countries on its debt clearance roadmap after Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor John Mangudya visited European capitals to drum up support for the plan.
The re-engagement with creditors is aimed at reaching accommodation and unlocking fresh capital, Chinamasa said last week. He said the sentiments from the creditors seemed positive and Zimbabwe would confirm that in Lima.
“It is important that we return to the mainstream global economy,” he said.
Zimbabwe’s proposal has been kept under wraps fearing that hawks in government would scuttle the deal, seen as a last-ditch effort to rejoin the international community.
In his mid-term fiscal policy review statement, Chinamasa said Zimbabwe had to ensure that “our investment and business laws are also accommodative of the interests of foreign direct investors”.
Chinamasa said the country’s investment drive should remain focused and consistent, “if we are to take advantage of the growing interest to invest in our economy”.
He said there was need to speak with one voice over critical policies. Critics to Chinamasa’s reform plan within government have been growing with the latest addition being Youth and Indigenisation minister Patrick Zhuwao.
Zhuwao on Tuesday said the indigenisation policy and foreign direct investment go hand in hand rebutting claims the policy would scare away international investors. War Veterans minister Christopher Mutsvangwa was quoted last month dismissing Chinamasa’s pro-IMF reform plans accusing the global lender of trying to remove President Robert Mugabe from power.
Zimbabwe requires long term financing to help reboot the economy.
Currently, the country relies on short-term capital which is unsustainable for long-term infrastructure and development projects. The capital comes at a high cost. Analysts say if the deal is approved, it will be a major plus in the rebranding of Zimbabwe as a destination of international capital.
IMF is seen as an international financial commissioner of oaths whose approval of a country would lure capital to that destination.
Phantom1: Just looking again at this and I like the wording and the fact the lima is mentioned here and that has a important meeting I believe with IMF
Systema: This is wonderful news…mainstream is the golden word.

Daz: Common Responses to Sudden Wealth
The danger while in a chute of emotions is not
the feeling but the doing. This is a hard point for
most people to grasp. Once the money is in hand,
they feel they should do something with it, maybe
many things at once. The key is to stop and reflect
— not about what to do, but about what to think
about. To begin with, recipients of sudden wealth
may find it most helpful to enter what Susan
Bradley calls a “decision-free zone.” This zone is
not just for decisions about investing, planning, or
spending. It is for thinking through what needs
to be considered — both now and later. Bradley
recommends doing several things while in your
• Stay in control
• Seek help and learning
• Determine what’s immediately needed and what
can be delayed
• Make understanding tax consequences a priority
• Delay gifts
• Track cash flow
• Work through emotions

Colors By Elmer
Roses may be red and violets blue.
The colors of Dinarland is up to you!
The skies can be gloomy and then comes the sun
With outpours of Intel from many not one!
So who do you follow who do you believe?
Cause there are many that intend to deceive
The colors of a lie seem never to cease!
Which confuses Dinarians And gives little peace.
Most quench their thirst from what they have been told
Living on a daily timeline while growing old!
It’s past time for the logical medicine on your shelf!
Rely less on everyone and more on yourself.
You have been given much knowledge during this quest.
So sift through it and put it to the test
Knowledge is power..its meant to be used
Without that gift you can be abused.
Rumors are weak when logic prevails
It Tells you what’s real and what’s a tall tale..
We are coming to the end of our nightmarish ride
Leaving little room for the liars to hide.
Embrace colors of logic and you will soon see..
An outpour of wisdom for you personally!
Search for the truth in all that you do..
The colors of Dinarland is up to you!

Q: [Any thoughts on a time table for the removal of Maliki? this month…this year?]
WMWhite: Personally, Maliki nor us, will not hear about his arrest or voluntary move to another country until after it has happened. You can be assured that if we had an idea of when…he would too.
tman23 The investment law still seems to be the key that unlocks the gates to “everything else”…I do not believe there is any other amendment to the investment law or needed to be reviewed again by the CoM…It was read 2 times and printed by the Justice for the third reading and vote..
IMF, World Bank, ISSD, European Union, have all reviewed the law and Iraq began campaigning their Bonds through Bank representatives in the US and London.
Nothing being reported on the Bonds that were ready for offer Oct 1st…because no investment law!
The reason for delay? The excuse is OH JUST ONE MORE THING… IMO…That is BS… BUT…we may see it roll come the 13th.
JDTolle: The Words Of Mother Teresa
The common theme of Mother Teresa words reflect her work with the lonely, the sick, the dying and the destitute. Her unending love came through in her work and in her words.
She was forever compassionate towards the loneliness felt by “wealthy” people, who on the surface had it all. She was also very concerned about the breakdown of families.
Here is a collection of her words which say it all:
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.
Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents, parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.
It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.
Peace begins with a smile.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
The success of love is in the loving – it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done.
There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread. We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
Good works are links that form a chain of love.
In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.
Mother Teresa’s message of love and hope lives on – it is now up to all of us to continue her work and make the world a better place.
