all or nothing : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Again, with all due respect to all opinions in this forum,

Why does this have to be an "all or nothing" deal? Why do I need to buy a gun and ammo? Why can't we have a little faith that when we get knocked down, we will get up, brush ourselves off, and keep going?

read history to find out why you should buy a gun people tend to be peace/love when they are fed/warm

The gun/ammo thing is a second ammendment right. People are spoiled in this country. They do not want to live with much less. I think there is a low ethic element to many in this society. They are packed with pride. If they fail, some will resort to almost anything. They may assume you are packin a weapon due to 2nd amendment. They may not want to take the risk your willing to take. Some may show some class, yet remember the insurance you have on your car, it covers those who do not show as much reponsibility in the way they carry themselves. Simply pray for those you warn. Tell them to put down their weapons as they enter your home...if they do not put them down, ask god or whoever for some guidance in that split second moment. You'll know what to do. Your Kids and wife or them. Remember, you need to continue providing in some manner and you need to insure your family in a way that you can continue to provide.

Sincerely, Feller.

Its not JUST the Y2K technological problem. In addition to human psychology - read the following new article. Has China (or Russia) stolen this too? I wonder what would happen if that weapon were used here? It could make a person (a GI anyway ) think!



"As a result of the use of new weapons, NATO aircraft on Monday managed to destroy the entire power supply system of Serbia," Russia's ITAR-TASS wire service is reporting. The wire quotes "government sources" but offers few details.

NATO spokesman Jamie Shea told reporters early Monday morning that NATO knocked out 70 percent of the power in Yugoslavia overnight, adding, "We can turn the power off whenever we need to and whenever we want to."

In Brussels, diplomatic sources told the AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE that NATO war planes had used "graphite bombs" overnight for the first time in the air campaign.

"The bombs exploded in the air, showering splinters of graphite over the power station which triggered multiple short circuits," reports the wire.

The superconductors used fully disactivate electric equipment, casing mass short circuit.

Use of these weapons "was a part of the psychological pressure" on Yugoslavia, according to a diplomat.
