Gary North will tell Art Bell listeners to buy now - or else!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
According to Gary North, the mint is already rationing 1/10 OZ gold coins, and he thinks it will get worse after he is on Art Bell. See:
I'm a big North fan, but this does not look good...

this may be true for the 10th oz gold coin, but there is a lot of other gold out there. If any of you were in the gold market in the 70s you know this to be true. And many of us still have a stash of it.

Scary Gary is always good for a laugh. I just love this guy. My predictions for SGs next 4 disasters to befall mankind
1. If all the people in the world INHALE at the same time it will suck up the atmosphere and we will all die of suffocation
2. If all the people in the world EXHALE at the same time, the "overpressure" in the atmosphere will burst our blood vessels and kill us all.
3. If all the people in the world flush all the toilets in the world we will all die by drowning in S-it.
4. If all the people in the world turned up their CD players real loud everyone would go deaf and no one could communicate and (you guessed it) we would all die.
My favorite predictions is:
If all the people in the world ignored this nut, he would go broke in a week and have to look for a new Con Game to take $$$ from the weak minded. Then the rest of us could get back to taking prudent precautions to get ready for Y2K.
But until that happens this guy is a laugh a minute.

Do ya'll remember Gary's attempt to create a "run on beans"?
If you recall, he wanted everyone to go to Sans Club and buy a 50 pound bag o beans. Then we would see how many were "getting it" with lack of beans as evidence.
Y2K is bad, creating hysteria is...

Anyone who offers free advice and information is really after something else, the wad in your pocket.

He has already started on his new DOOM - it was sent out as an 'EMERGENCY' warning two weeks ago. It is all about how biological warfare is going to do us in. This is exactly how he started in on AIDS, BANKS, Y2K and etc. So you can look for Y2K to fall to the back burner pretty soon, then drop off the radar screen. Pretty obvious the other things did not do us in - can't understand why so many follow a totally failed prophet. He claims 13,000 subscribers to RR - wonder how many expire after 1/1/2000?
His line on BW is the same as always - buy gold and hide out in the country living the simple life. Funny thing - if one of the vectors for a BW attack was some animal that lives in the country - the country would be the very worst place to be - lots of vectors and few people to transmit it to.

I got really pissed after reading this recent post of North's. The jerk wants to cause a panic so he can say he's been right all along. Hopefully most will ignore this doomsayer. I used to like him, but I don't like his tactics anymore. He's obsessesd!

One thing has always puzzled me about GN's massive website: who the hell's paying for it??? That site must generate a TON of bandwidth, and that ain't free, folks. Maybe GN pays for it out of his own pocket, I don't know... but I DO know this:
Let's say that you're the powers-that-be, and you wanted to start a REAL PANIC in this country regarding Y2K. If I were you, the first people I'd start propagandizing would be the relatively intelligent folks who know how to use a computer and have internet access. These people usually have some standing among their friends, neighbors and colleagues. Set up a site - no, set up a whole plethora of sites, all with more-or-less the same message: Y2K = TEOTWAWKI. At the same time, openlyfeed stories to the media to the effect that "everything's under control, remediation is proceeding, blah-blah..." Considering the governments track record (if they told me the sun was shining at noon on a clear day, I'd look up to make sure), many will assume that a coverup is occurring - it is, but not the one they think. Instead, the population is being hearded down a trail that leads to an abyss. They wouldn't have chosen this path for themselves, but do to the Hegelian dialectic being fashioned, they have no choice but to proceed that way... after all, thinking for themselves is a right given up long ago by most.

I don't agree with many of GN's views. However his site does post much Y2K news, so i just use his place as a starting point. <:)= Y2K News
