AND SLICK LIVES UP TO HIS NAME.......AGAIN....... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Well well well, who'da thunk it?

Doesn't say much for the American people polled, if you can believe the polls, what - 74% approval rating. I'm alright, the economy's fine, let the Prez have a little poontang...

And the Senate? The less said about them the better.

Article 1 guilty=45 not guilty=55

Article 2 guilty=50 not guilty=50

Maybe now we've got this charade out of the way we can get on with the most important item at hand...


-- Andy (, February 12, 1999


I'm saddened that our leaders would tolerate such hypocrisy by our Pretender in Chief before his troops. You're right - he's slick, but when the economy goes, will he slip through the falling DJIA numbers and still retain his high poll results? I expect his PR machine will be running overtime to try to stick Y2K problems on the House Repubs for "distracting" him with Monica-gate from the Y2K issue.

What a jerk...

-- Brett (, February 12, 1999.

Yes, the most important item at hand...campaign fund raising!

-- rick blaine (, February 12, 1999.

Sorry everyone for the duplicate,

Andy and I were on the same wavelength but he was faster on the draw!

-- Sharon in Texas (, February 12, 1999.

Thanks for saying it for me, Andy.

-- Mercy (, February 12, 1999.

We now have a king.

One set of laws for him....

and another set for the rest of us "little peasants".

Shame on you America.

You're going to get what's coming to you.

To all our peril.

-- INVAR (, February 12, 1999.

Sharon - one or two lady friends have accused me of the same thing :)

-- Andy (, February 12, 1999.

I can see the headlines now, Brett, in the NY Times and Wash. Post.:

"GOP sex witch hunt derails y2k repair work"

-- rick blaine (, February 12, 1999.

Sharon...... time to exercise our constitutional right to secede.

While we still can.

Sad day, indeed.

-- Lisa (third@10.situation), February 12, 1999.

The Confederacy thought they were exercising their constitutional "right" to secede, too, once upon a time.

-- Donna Barthuley (, February 12, 1999.

Really more of a moral secession, Donna.....

-- Lisa (sigh@frown.mope), February 12, 1999.

The next few months terrify me now. When Reagan was elected in 1980, friends of mine actually thought of leaving the country to escxape the expected witch hunts. I think the danger is far greater today from the other side of the political fence. I never thought I'd say this, but I almost hope y2k is a 10+ because it may be the only thng that saves us from Clinton.

-- Cash (, February 12, 1999.

Understood, Lisa. I'm a proponent of personal/individual secession from closed, rigid, and flawed systems.

-- Donna Barthuley (, February 12, 1999.


LOL!! ;)


Yes, while we still can...

-- Sharon in Texas (, February 12, 1999.

I guess the only thing left to do is kill the guy...

-- not real name (, February 12, 1999.

I have heard people say that they hope y2k is a 10. I hope it is a ZERO I also hope our people and our country grow some sort of conscience. I for one have had enough death in my life. When I was 13 my brother died, he was 14 years old that was in 1970. In 71 my nephew that lived with our family was killed he was only 19 months old. In 1985 my only son was killed and for 5 years I had no life left in me. No I hope everything will be fine because I have had enough to last a lifetime. I am sorry for preaching ya just have to remember it's just me your forum friend Tman

-- Tman (, February 12, 1999.

Ya know, Lisa, we're one of the few states that could make a go of it on our own. We were accorded some special rights in perpetuity in return for statehood. Remember your seventh grade Texas history class?

-- Vic (, February 12, 1999.

Vic - yep, that's what I'm talking about.

-- Lisa (you@betcha!.yep), February 12, 1999.

Lets all move to Texas ;-)

Seriously, now that this empeachment media hog controversy is finally over, right or wrong decision, it means that we have a window of opportunity to force Clinton and congress to address the Y2K issue.

I suspect that the media will not want to let go of its golden goose so easily.

Just heard Clinton's post decision address on the radio. He's bent on moving on "to do the job of serving the country" that he was elected to do (his broken record phrase).

What can we here on this forum to push our Y2K agenda on the gov. now?

-- Chris (, February 12, 1999.

Insert a "do" between "forum" and "to" please.

-- Chris (, February 12, 1999.

TMan --- Believe me, I hope it is a zero too. So do we all.

The reason most of us go around ranting so much (Milne included) is because it could have AND should have been a zero, as you know yourself.

-- BigDog1 (, February 12, 1999.

T-man, I'm sorry for your pain. People like you have been through so much more than I ever have. I tell God everyday how grateful I am for his undying love. I also pray that if I lose one of my children, I can still tell Him the same thing. God knows what it's like to lose a son too, only He could have stopped it, and didn't.

May God bless you through the year 2000.

-- James Chancellor (, February 12, 1999.


This was so eloquent, so succinct, so--well--you know, just darn great. :>) I had to copy and paste it here, too!

So, a, what have we learned from this sorry episode in our country's history?

1. It is okay to commit perjury if you are President. 2. It is okay to lie to the people you serve if you are President. 3. It is okay to obstruct justice if you are the President. 4. It is okay to trash other peoples' reputations if you are President. 5. It is okay to misuse your office resources if you are President. 6. It is okay to commit adultery if you are President. 7. It is okay to suborn perjurious testimony if you are President. 8. It is okay to sexually harass women if you are President.

Well said, Andy. this is a sad, sad day.

-- Scarlett (, February 12, 1999.

For some time now my personal nick name for Slick has been 'The Teflon President'. I'm not at all surprised, just disappointed :-(

-- Tricia the Canuck (, February 12, 1999.

The airwaves are free from Monicagate again. Will we see Y2K take it's rightful place in the news?

I'm not gonna bet on it.

Endless post game postulating is Deedah's prediction, you heard it here first.

-- Uncle Deedah (, February 12, 1999.

Thank-you Mr. Chancellor I pray that all of us have a great 2000. The thing is we are all starting to get that gut feeling that it's time to do what we need to do with out looking back. Yourdon, Hamasaki, Kelly, with just those 3, there are over 100 years of programming experience. I don't feel that these guys are clueless. The problem is for the government and the DGIs all they have left is lies and spin and 10 more months to eat drink and be merry.Tman
