A LARGE POT _BEANS AND RICE, A GET TOGATHER>greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
TO Whom it may concern:
I have been wondering what I will do with all my extra food if y2k is a bump in the road and all is well with all the companies, and the goverment that tells us that good times are here for ever. The stock market is getting ready to hit 10,000. people are buying goodtime goodies, and Here I am wondering what is going to be the first thing to hit me in the back, y2k, stock market, other countries, no oil, no gas, no water, no banks, no heat, funerals and sick friends. Hell what have we got ourselves into in the last seven years?
I have been wondering about just how am I going to make myself feel better again and get back onto the road to recovery,Like in the good old days before all these y2k guys let the cat loose and started talking about bugged computers, embedded chips, lieing companies, congress, and a dying president that will surley be a bed fellows in hell with Hitler and family.
I have decided that I will take all my beans, rice, and whatever I have stored and invite every homeless person in the US to come to see Washington, DC and enjoy themselves while they take in the sites , they can dine on beans, rice, onions, cornbread and anything else that might be avaiable to cook.
The only catch will be they have to register to vote, vote for Allen Keys. Bring their own bed and blanket. IF the democrats can register non-citizens, I can register homeless vets, the disabled etc. Chances are that what I will have to do that where I now live and forgo DC.
Neverthe less I am going to be a good time Charlie and enjoy every munite no matter which way the chip falls. Been there and done that.
Lon Maybe none of you will agree with this plan, There are almost 800,000 homeless people in the US and they are being pushed off the earth.
NOW! Lets see where we stand as of today 03-12-99. Kneedeep in Bulls splash, Bankers leaving town, programmers moving,bunkers in some states, WV, OH. CO.NY KY and I don't know how many more.

I think it was GreyBear a week or so ago that said it would be pretty cool if we could all get together. I agree. If we do make it thru this mess in relatively good shape, we'll all need a BIG party! A huge chile bash (got to do something with all those beans - bring change of underware)! Much to early to start thinking about, but something to keep on the back burner. <:)=

I'll bring some wine, some blues music (Big Mama Thorton, Slim Harpo), and maybe a scrap book with all of Yourdon's "Oldies but Goodies" threads...it would be rich!

count me in so long as it doesn't end up like that scene from Blazing Saddles around the campfire
i can't vote over there though, at least Clint is at last laying down the law with the IRA (Blair or Bleech couldn't)
