Why I hate Timebomb 2000 (Actually posted in 2002)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Unk's Troll-free Private Saloon : One Thread
If I wasn't reading this forum I would be blissfully ignorant of what was happening. I would be going about my self involved life totally clueless of the dangers. I wouldn't be prepping, I wouldn't be stocking up, I wouldn't even be thinking about finding a bug out spot if the worse did happen. No I would be happy, spending my spare time in a carefree, don't care attitude. After TSHTF I would be one of those people wondering what the HELL happened and be looking to the PTB for help.
So thanks TIMEBOMB, I am aware, I am planning, I am getting ready, not sure for what, but just in case. It is like having insurance, you hope you never need it but if you do you will be dam glad you have it. So everyone keep prepping, keep stocking up. Dave

You are not sure why you are prepping? Its because Dumbya is trying to ruin this country.

You haven't said why you hate it. It sounds more like you like it a lot, so you can go back there now.

I'm a polly and I like TB2000. More interesting conversations over there then here.

The ‘interesting conversations’ you speak of must pass the sniff test from Dennis, or disappear post haste. Currently, poor Dennis is suffering from post Y2K angst and appears to be heading for a major league breakdown of sorts. Read all about it here:
No breakdowns here at Unk’s, unless you count Cherri and trollboy, who both have long ago passed that threshold.

Doomers have short memories. Remember when Y2K was bringing civilization to an end? Or, more recently, when all of our kids were going to die from anthrax-laced Halloween candy? Then, weren't we going to be in the grips of a smallpox epidemic by Christmas? And, what was that deadline when India and Pakistan were going to start lobbing nukes?
B-b-b-but, THIS time is different! The Nas really IS going to 3,000. There really IS going to be a depression. Gold really IS going to the moon. We just don't know exactly when...or why. But, remember, only TB2K knows the Truth! The rest of you are all stupid DGI pollies and you're all going to die.
Got preps? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I read FatOlson's screed about his mounting paranoia and was astonished to read the following on the same threrad by some cretin named homecanner1:
"ya gotta laugh a little. At least we are FINALLY getting a little revenge on the cruelty the pollies all unleashed upon us in Dec. 99...WE were RIGHT Man! Always were "
More proof that these sacks of skin have always WANTED the world to end. Must be shitty being them...

Cruelty from Pollies? We tried to ease your fears, we were treated badly. And if you are trying to say all of the problems today justify your fears about computers causing them....???

Oooo. Thanks, Smoke, for bringing this excellent amusement to our attention again. Hadn't checked in on that carnival sideshow in a long time. It's gotten even loonier than it used to be! Great way to start the day, eh?
"It's no problem if the banks fail. They need them to, in order to usher in the new system.
The only problem will be for Christians who will probably get the blame for it. We'll be the scapegoat like Hitler and the Jews. I can't fathom how on earth they will figure out a way to blame bible believeing Christians ( and Constitutionalists) for the coming Argentina USA, but I strongly suspect that is the plan- unless the final end is much farther off than many of us think"
Do ya think she meant that last word to be "hope"? Yeehaaa!!

The pugs are just stupid pollied anyways. You can hear them thinking "Why not just elect an idiot to the presidency, what bad things could possibly happen?"
