No one knows what will happen --Really!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Over and over I have read that no one knows what the Jan.1,2000 event will bring. I say, BULL! For the most powerful man in the world ( the President of the United States)to say that he,( with all the resources within his control available ) doesn't have a clue what will happen, is an out and out lie. (Not unusual for him.) More than any programer or y2k guru, he has the ability to have the true and complete answer given to him. He should then present it to us, and the people of the world. I say he is up to no good. As par for course.

Were it only so, from your fingers (on the keyboard) to god's ear.
The Prez knows only what his best confidants know. He trusts no one, because he can not be trusted. I am afraid that the movie "CLUELESS" is the story of William J. Clinton and Y2K.
Things will get worse before they get better.....

On which planet do you reside, my friend? This is the third rock from the sun. Perhaps you turned right when you should have gone up! The true and complete answer exists only in time. Sometime in January 2000 to be more precise. I seriously doubt the most powerful human on the Earth (Hillary) would recognize the "true and complete answer" if it bit them in the ..... oh well, you know!

As someone pointed out above, he only knows what he is being told. I SUSPECT that the data there is about as confusing as the data here, because there the data comes from Chief whatever officers, and very few of them are willing to admit to their President that they ain't got it done. Particularly now, as it's gotten so damn important all of a sudden. 'Course, this assumes that THEY know what's goin' on in their own 'patch. NOT a very great assumption, but the best we were isued this morning.
