GI's vs. Pollies. It's all a matter of conditioninggreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
It is now very clear why there is such a vast difference of opinion.It is all about how we are conditioned. So now it's just a matter of,"Can you be an individual? Or are you just re-issueing what you have been conditioned to think?

Paladin, why don't you take that gun and shoot yourself? First I'm a polly and I get it. I get it so much that I'm sick of it. I'm doing Y2K remediation and test and guess what. Things couldn't be better. We're done!! Made it. Now can you think as an individual or do you follow blindly into the Eddie and Gary chanting.

Maria, It's great that you are finished but does that necessarily mean that the rest of the world is in such good shape. If it is, that's terrific. However, I see a lot in the news indicating that everyone is not ready. Not trying to argue, just wondering about the logic. It's sort of like the ex-fat guy saying the rest of the world is skinny because he's lost weight. Not a very good analogy but I think you get my point.

Maria : One question - What would happen to the system on Jan. 1,2000 if you had not done your y2k remediation & testing?

Maria-Maria-Maria, The fact that you HAVE been preparing, and ARE ready for what you think will happen, shows that you are NOT a true pollie. That you DO have a little distrust for the Gov't. And that you CAN make decisions contrary to the masses. Be careful, you might just be a little mentally disturbed. According to the NORMAL people that is. by the way, I don't understand your hostility- - - -Unless you think that article was talking about you? It's not my article. I just agree with it.
