Thought for the day : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

Regarding "doomers" and "pollies", it seems to me that there is a lot less difference among the moderates (both camps, e.g. Brian, Anita, Patricia, etc.) than between the extremes of either camp.

Yeah RIGHT. Except the "extreme polly" by definition of POLLYANNA from the book is someone in blissful ignorance of what can go wrong.

FACT Doomzies --> <<<1% of the population. Everyone else is ANTI- DOOMZIE but if it helps you "categorize people" (AKA: prejudice) go right ahead. History will define the Y2k terms not you.

Congratulations, now you understand the meaning of "moderates" and "extremes."

Boy, CPR, you really socked it to somebody. No idea who, but there must have been somebody. Somebody who fit.

Cpr has an ego problem, most likely "the little man complex". He is loud mouthed, insulting, and for the most part, incoherent. His rambling attacks against "the doomers of Y2k" are getting as old as they are out of date.... like, what brain?

Lol Mr. Slippery! I bet creeper is a runt, about 4-1/2 feet tall. He was probably in the Marines too, got himself all buffed up to compensate for his 3 inch penis and now he thinks he's tough. Hee heee hee hee!!

Hi Hawk,

I wasn't trying to be funny. Cpr, IMHO does have some kind of mental problem having to do with his ego. It's like Y2k was the first time in his life he was noticed, and he just can't let that go. Little Man complex doesn't have to develop from being small in stature, not just from how tall you are or how small your dick is, rather it comes from low self confidence.

Charlie was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, was given everything he has , was given a good education, and look where he is today. Just a loud mouthed, offensive real estate salesman from Dallas who is looking to get his groupies back.

If he wasn't so pathetic, I'd feel sorry for him.

Have you ever read The True Believer by Eric Hoffer? There's essentially no difference between zealots on either side of ANY coin. A "smoking" advocate, for instance, may lobby for smoker's rights, defend his right to smoke in public places, and criticize anyone who thinks he's wrong. Once that smoker decides to quit smoking, however, he becomes as zealous at the opposite extreme as he was on the other.

As a Y2k "Polly" it came as a surprise to me to realize that some of the pollies and doomers were bigoted zealots in general. Some of the "signs" should have been obvious to me, but it wasn't until the CDC came and ended that revelations of "true colors" separated the grain from the chaff.

The self-esteem thing is a different issue, IMO, although some good points have been made regarding the need of some to pump up their own self-esteem by degrading others.
