"So, of course I want to see y2k bring down the system, all over the world. I have hoped for this all of my adult life." -- Gary North




-- Thomas W. Chittum (chittum@aol.com), January 24, 1999


Thomas: This is not a Gary North website. Why don't you go to his website and spew your complaint there? Everyone who posts here is intelligent enough to separate fact from fiction. We all speculate, but none of us are morons.

North-bashing is the second biggest waste of time in the world. What's the first biggest waste of time? Milne-bashing.

They said that about Rush too.

-- Sue (conibear@gateway.net), January 24, 1999.

but they were right about Rush.

Thomas, who cares?

Ol' Chittum is having his "fun" today. He's gotten his jollies over at North's place by posting the same troll post he did here earlier. Got the hornets really buzzing like mad. I wonder how many other sites he's wasting bandwidth and hard drive space on today?


-- Wildweasel (vtmldm@epix.net), January 24, 1999.

I'm with Gary North on this thing. I would just love to see us go back to a pace of living as we did 100 years ago. Our government is too big and too corrupt and it is time to cut it's ugly head off! Once our government is down all Americans will be free again!!! We will then be free to engage in business without having to get a "License" from the government for permission to run our own business. We will be able to remodel our homes without getting a permission slip from our government. I for one does not need a government to run my life. Only 341 days till we are all FREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Dutchie: How does that saying go? "Don't count your chicken's until the eggs hatch?" I'm hoping for the same things you are.

-- bardou (bardou@baloney.com), January 24, 1999.

If I had my way. I would Burn DC to the ground and salt the earth to a depth of one foot so that nothing would ever grow there again.

The difference between asshole like Chittum and myself, is that I understand my desires have NOTHING whatsoever to do with the OBJECTIVE facts in the matter. No matter how much I hate what America has become, I know that does NOT factor in to my view on whether Y2k will, indeed, have any effect at all.

The two are independent of each other.

-- Paul Milne (fedibfo@halifax.com), January 24, 1999.

Your posts just reinforced my assertions that most of you here are lunatics like Mr. North hoping for the downfall of our Government and have anarchy and chaos instead in this country. You y2k extremists better be correct that teotwawki will happen or you might end up in the mental asylums where you should belong!

-- Thomas W. Chittum (chittum@aol.com), January 25, 1999.

Did Paul "everyone is a Butthead but me" Milne say:

'If I had my way. I would Burn DC to the ground and salt the earth to a depth of one foot so that nothing would ever grow there again.'?

isn't that...sedition? or treason? or incitement to riot? or is that just plain unamerican?

-- Knothead Ken (woodywoodbutcher@hotmail.com), January 25, 1999.

The funny thing Ken, is that these guys really truly believe things like building permits and pollution suits started in the last century or so. The first pollution suit in the modern era was filed before Shakespeare was born - some people in London got tired of the tannery dumping stuff in the river that made the water undrinkable. I think building permits were around in Roman times. I have an old book on brewing that came from Britian (in storage - I would have h**l finding it - so don't ask) - it says that at one time the water at London was so polluted that it would ferment without addition of anything but yeast! Now that is polluted! And damn if I would want to drink the result!

Now I really wonder just what these guys would do after TEOTWAWKI if their neighbor started making batteries or something - and dumped the waste products near the property line? Killing their trees and making the livestock sick when it runs down the hill? Go after him with a gun? Call the sheriff? Let it go because the neighbor is within his rights as a free man? Beats me.

These sorts of folks used to move to an ungoverned area - Indian territory or something. Now we have to live cheek to jowl with them.

Re: chittum

Consider the source of this thread . See HIS site. http://members.aol.com/chittum/cw2index/html

"Consider the source"

Hahaha - that's what you guys rail against anytime North is criticized. You're trying to have your cake and eat it too!

-- ... (.@...), January 25, 1999.

When I was young and foolish I volunteered to solicit signatures to get Ross Perot on the Presidential ballot here. It was an education. I met more different sorts of people than I'd even imagined existed. (I said, young & foolish, right?) One was a talkative Libertarian who semed to take his views pretty seriously.

So I asked him, "Whereabouts do you live?"

He named a quite nice middle-class neighborhood.

"I understand Libertarian policy is to eliminate all governmental controls."

"You bet."

"How would you handle it if the county decided to build a sewage disposal plant across the street from your house?"

He decided I was too dumb to talk to, bought a bumper sticker, and left.

-- Tom Carey (tomcarey@mindspring.com), January 25, 1999.

It's about more than building permits and pollution suits, Paul. It's about "Know Your Customer" programs; it's about a belligerent, out-of-control IRS; it's about an amoral president and a multitude who thinks he's great as long as unemployment is low and inflation is lower still; it's about a nation where 8 million people--many of them able-bodied--are still on welfare; it's about more than 30 percent of college-bound seniors being functionally illiterate. I could go on, but--as you're an intelligent guy--I think you get the message.

-- Vic (68rdrunneris@compliant.com), January 25, 1999.

Hey Tommy,

have your friends made it back from their confab in Alabama? Have you figured out which ones have been turned by the feds yet? remember, *your* folks think that y2k is going to mean open season for them...but the rest of us aren't going to allow that to happen.

no nazi revolt, no seperate white state. not now, not ever.

Despite what opinion you have of Gary North, he has been the media watchdog for Y2K. Sure he puts his own little "spin" on things..but you have to take everything you read with a grain of salt. Spouting off your opinion of someone takes almost zero effort while attempting to inform people is much more commendable.
