GI comments : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I think I converted someone today. Unfortunately,

"Wait a moment, if all this y2k shit is true, there's not going to be any more Melrose Place!!"

Other person, a friend of this girl: "But this is the last season of the show anyway."

New GI: "Oh yeah. For a second there I was really scared!"

A telling post, Leo. Ain't it sad?

Excelect post. Excelent point.

I think what we have here is a fine example of a "sighting". Only this is a sighting of a prey. If some of you border line DGIs would, try to see this - let's call it - Melrose Factor and then multiply by the (anybodys guess, but it ain't small) number of people out there who are very much "prey". Then you may be better able to see one more significant peice of the puzzle.

If you follow the boards, you've seen the predator. Now you've seen the prey.

Prey indeed, Greybear. These and similar women will end up being bought and sold like a six-pack of Spam. Their debasement will utterly bewilder them, even as it is happening. Black days ahead...

It goes without saying that this would not happen to these women if the majority of American men weren't whipped, effeminate, sports-sedated wuss-wonders, and actually took care of and looked out for their daughters, mothers, wives or girlfriends. I'm constantly amazed by the number of women on this and other Y2K forums who say that their men, who should be thier protectors and champions, don't "get it". Whatever has happened to the "men" in this country does not bode well for hard times...

You've never seen a MAD Texas woman have you Why2K?

It is a sight to behold.

God help us if all the women in Texas get mad at the same time.

Most of them are pretty well armed too.

I REALLY pity the poor buzzard who tries to assult Mama Bear or Oldest Female offspring.

--Greybear, who's never had to "check six" in the last 28 yrs. Mama Bear has had it well covered.

- Got TP?

Guess I've lived too long in the Northeast, soft, dissolute and liberal as it is, and I'm used to seeing poor specimens of manhood. I don't doubt that a Texas gal, when angry, is a force to be reckoned with, and could hold her own with the best of them. In fact, the women in Texas should start kicking their respective men's posteriors. What is the matter with the folks down there anyway? in '93 they allowed a bunch of goons burn down a church with women and children inside, now they are tolerating unidentified troops rappelling unnannounced from unmarked helos in the middle of the night, in their towns. I've been hearing a faint hum lately... I believe it's the sound of Sam Houston, Davy Crockett, Jim and Rezzin Bowie, and the defenders of the Alamo spinning in their graves. Looks like Texas is going 'down the Nueces'... or maybe there just aren't any Texans left.

"He would not sleep upon a bed, nor comforts would he know, but like a brave old Texian, a-ranging he would go."

You are absolutely correct. You only hear it as a hum, it's a high pitched whine down here.

And on a personal note. It is one of the great shames of my life that I (that's me personally) did not do anything and sat on my worthless ass while the "tender mercies" were applied at Waco.

I had (and have) nothing to do with their religion. In my opinion they were religious kooks. Last time I looked that was not mentioned as anything particularly bad in the Consitution.

Maybe it's *more* important because they were kooks.

"God help us if all the women in Texas get mad at the same time.

Greybear, correct on both statements! :-)

-- Gayla Dunbar (, February 17, 1999.

Don't kick yourself about it, Greybear. Lots of folks - hell, most all folks - didn't 'get it' at the time it was going on, thanks to the relentless torrent of propaganda from the mainline news media. What really toasted my frijoles was the attitude I saw in the Waco townspeople themselves after it was all over. They loved the goonverment and the media being there - good for business, don't you know. The ATF could've been bouncing babies in the air and catching them on bayonets for all they cared, it wouldn't have made any difference to these good down-home folk... just as long as the cash registers kept ringing. They actually put up a billboard thanking the feds for the economic boom.

BTW, I agree with your assessment of the Davidians being 'kooks' - all the more reason to defend their rights. The horrible trend in this country remains: Any person or group espousing unpopular beliefs must be demonized, lose all their rights, and, if sufficiently distasteful to the majority, lose their lives. May God have mercy on us all.

-- Why2K? (, February 17, 1999.

Greybear - If you haven't already seen it, try to track down "Waco, Rules Of Engagement" - as for being - "In my opinion they were religious kooks," see the documentary and make up your own mind.

To me they came across as good Christians with their own take on the Bible. Each to his own. They were doing no harm in Waco and paid for their independence with their lives a la Joan D'Arc.

There is a very good previous thread on this if you want to track it down - we really need a search engine! Andy
