M8RX: Hey family, I would like to suggest something radical.We all have been hoping, dreaming and planning for the dinar revaluation.
How about we change our outlook on the dinar. We all know that Frank has said it is done, how about we change our perspective from waiting on it to it is done.
Although we don't actually have more money we need to think like we do (heaven forbid don't go spending money you don't have) but start thinking that this is done and over with. Maybe if we change our focus from "soon to come" to it is done things can change for the better!
