A political conspiracy theory

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

What if...

your political party had been defeated in the last two elections arguably by the existence of a third alternative on the ballot? Would it not be a good thing to attempt to divide that party?

Just a thought.

Sorry to hear you're leaving, Gordy, but I thought that this would be a good opportunity to announce my new book, TimeDud: 2000 - Why The Bomb Didn't Go Off. I plan to gather data posted here by the pollies in the last 3 years and organize their words into chapters, thus making them my own. The basic jist of the book will cover the reasons why Y2K was not a big problem and could never have possibly been a big problem. I will be using polly data to counter arguments used by those who peddled fear prior to the rollover and present volumes of evidence proving that there was no possible way that any of their scenarios were in any way close to reality.

This may seem like a departure from my previous work, but if you look at it in the context of my dwindling bank account and empty consulting schedule, you will see how it all fits together in the larger picture. I hope that, with this book, we can expose the criminals that used the Y2K phenomenon to swindle thousands of dollars from innocent people and prevent this sort of thievery from happening in the future.

The book will be $39.95 a copy at Amazon starting next month.

Be sure to order two, just in case something happens to the first one. After all, you never know what might happen!!

The Republicans lost in '96 because they lacked a serious candidate.

-- Butt Nugget (catsbutt@umailme.com), August 11, 2000.

Butt, I respect your opinion, but I must personally denounce you, as an individual, as one stupid fucking idiot, please take it in the spirit intended. The Republicans lost BECAUSE they had a serious candidate, Dole was TOO serious!

Do you call CLINTON serious?

Like I said, Butt, you are a stupid fucking idiot. Did your mom have any children that lived? Please try to be more thoughtful in your future posts, or I will have to punish you more severely.

Newguy, zip up your fly...nothing is showing.

-- Ra (tion@l.1), August 11, 2000.

Sorry Newguy, that is as thoughtful as I get. Did I ever tell you why I suspect the Seattle Mariners baseball team are spies for the Rhodesian Liberation Army?

-- Butt Nugget (catsbutt@umailme.com), August 11, 2000.

Better yet newguy, stuff a big salami in the crotch of your pants. Ra will like you a lot more if he thinks you have a huge schlong. He's one of those guys that has no hair on his body and loves big schlongs. lol (you know the type) ;-)

-- (ra=indian.term.for@he.who.thinks.with.penis), August 12, 2000.

Newguy, the salami could indeed be dangerous around RA.

Liberally poked, expertly impaled on a big trebblehook and then carefully trolled I bet a nice big seabass would find it irresistable.

Better bring two.

Hi Andy,

I'm glad to see you posting something other than your QQ series.

I am also glad that you had the courage to apologize to me. Perhaps we can continue from here. I really don't like having "enemies" on the net, or in real life...

Anyway, I am a registered Libertarian. Isn't that the whole idea, to throw a monkey-wrench in the works? We are the "minority" and our chances of "winning" are slim to none, at least for now. But I think that could change, soon. I hope that this country will "wake up" some day, soon. What we have now, just isn't working...

Yes, "we" do make a difference. Who was the last President to win the vote by a "majority" (ie 50+%)...

Sysman, was it Nixon in 1972? I'm remembering the headline....."Nixon Wins By A Landslide".

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ROFL "or I will have to punish you more severely," please elaborate?

you are one sick puppie or is that 'puppies'?

Why do they call Rhodesia Rhodesia?

-- FutureShock (gray@matter.think), August 12, 2000.

They don't; they call it Zimbabwe [g].

Hey, that brings up a question. If you could rename the USA, what would you call it? (Or, from The Book of Stupid Questions), if you could re-draw the lines of your state, what shape would it be?)

-- Patricia (PatriciaS@lasvegas.com), August 12, 2000.

Thanks Carlos. Hows the temp out there? Whew! BTW, did you notice that I went trolling on this thread and hooked me a brain-fried land carp? Definitely a throwback and not much of a fight at all. Stunk the boat up to boot. And to NewGuys little idiot savant: you are correct! I do like a huge schlong and think with mine whenever I can.

Sorry, Patricia, but I can't respond here without making light of your question. Yesterday a local came by to tell us that the pool no longer had a key entrance, but a keypad entrance. He provided the code for our address. While he was here, he discussed trimming the bush that has grown so profusely this past year. He was quite willing to trim the bush for us [This is the same guy who mowed the lawn when SO had the bad knee.] Anyway, he asked whether we'd want round or square. I said, "round...the bush grows round, so let's keep it round." He then went on to other options. "Would you like it tapered down to the front, etc.?" Finally, I said, "I'd really prefer a bush in the form of a Mickey Mouse head. Can you do that?"

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), August 12, 2000.

Anita, what would you have done if the guy HAD trimmed the bush into the shape of a Mickey Mouse head?

-- Patricia (PatriciaS@lasvegas.com), August 12, 2000.


I would have said it was the new shape of the State of Texas.

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), August 12, 2000.

I'm trying to picture the flag of the State of Texas flying at the top of one of Mickey Mouse's ears.

It's just not happening for me.....

(There were SO many other jokes I could have made..................)

-- Patricia (PatriciaS@lasvegas.com), August 12, 2000.

"(There were SO many other jokes I could have made..................)"

I'm confident most would have fit. Since we're both online right now, would you like to meet in your chat room?

-- Anita (Anita_S3@hotmail.com), August 12, 2000.

I have about fifteen minutes and then I have to run....see you there.

-- Patricia (PatriciaS@lasvegas.com), August 12, 2000.

Why Sysman,

I haven't heard from you since you were wrong about...(what was it you were wrong about last?.....)..oh yeah!...the database filling up and not allowing new messages to post.


Tick Tock!

Vindicated Regards,
Andy Ray
