where is everyone

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I am somewhat of newbee to this forum but not y2k, where is everybody, there appears to be about 30 or so regulars here. There must be 10s of thousand of GIs in America, many with computers, when you consider the lack of supplies and long waiting period on some, somebody has got to be buying this stuff up, a lot of somebodys.

I know ther are other forums but this seems to be the most popular. Is everyone lurking, is everyone afraid to post because of what Big Brother might do, and people call me paranoid! The thing is I am suppose to be a FREE man and so are you.or woman

So, what does that say about the state of mind, of the American people and their views of our current government? Yet everybody keeps walking down the slippery slope to the point of no return.

All I can say is if there were no posters this country would have never been born.

moose; Welcome to the party! Make sure you read the posters on the wall before you join us on the patio. Do you see what I mean ? I looked on the forum first to see what type of questions were being asked first. Then I would either comment or finally ask a question. Many of the people here are very specialized in their fields. Alot of them do alot of research first before posting answers. So again welcome and do ask questions you need to ask ,It won't hurt any of us.... Furie...

Ask your questions, comment and criticize on any replies made.

That's how we (the rest of us) learn. Though most us will never learn to spell.....

Now about your specific area of expertise.....from what part of mosselandia do you hale?

Paranoia is well justified. This is a police state. No less so because the iron hand is in a velvet glove. This became a police state when "peace officers" became "police officers", making sure (policing) you will obey the myriad of statute laws passed to control you in all aspects of your life, from how many guns of what type you can own, how much money you can move around without being criminalized, to what sorts of herbs and chemicals you can ingest, to deciding who you have to deal with (anti-discrimination) laws, when you can drive in what traffic lane ...

In the Y2K area, the government has shown it cannot be trusted. The reason could be stupidity or nefariousness. Take your pick.

You want those clowns or a-holes (take your pick) to know your business?

Welcome, moose. It's an interesting question, and there is no single answer. I know some GI's who are very well prepared that rarely use the internet, and never read or post on bulletin board message systems. So, the answer to where is everyone could be more a question of why some people use the net and others do not. To conclude that this is an indicator of how many GI's there are may not be accurate.

I'm here, but I'm not a regular. Does that mean I'm irregular? :)

I don't want to waste bandwidth by continuously posting. With all of these Y2K preparations to do, I can't keep up with this Message Board. But if someone posts something I appreciate, then I'll support it with posted words.

Maybe I'm better off being extinct.
