New Jim Lord Article - "Are they Really Done?" : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Hello All,

A new article titled, "Are they Really Done?" is posted on my website at: (click on (What's New")

A brief response to those who call these postings "self-promoting."

There are many on this forum who wish to be informed when my articles go up.

There are many postings here I don't read because they don't interest me. If you can't stand me, don't read me or my posts.

Get over it.

Yes, I look forward to hearing from you, and I want to know when you have added another article. I cannot check everyone's website twice a day. Don't stop posting here! I let hundreds know once you send out the word about another essay.

Hey Jim, I can't stand you and you know what? It wasn't that hard to get over.

-- (humpty@dumpty.the clown), October 26, 1999.

Thanks Jimbo.

-- a (a@a.a), October 26, 1999.

Thanks for all of your efforts Jim!

Thanks. You don't need to justify yourself to our infestation of pathetic creeps and disruptors.

You're a hero around here; keep posting, we need you.


-- Liberty (, October 26, 1999.

Hey Jim, ignorance is bliss. Pollies are blissed out, and hope to remain that way....


-- Owl (, October 26, 1999.

I thank you for your efforts Mr. Lord.

-- Porky (Porky@in.cellblockD), October 26, 1999.

Thanks Jim.


-- Ray (, October 26, 1999.

Keep up the good work, Jim. Many here appreciate all that you've done.

-- Nabi (, October 26, 1999.

Count me in as one of the many who appreciate Mr. Lord's work.

-- Not Whistlin' Dixie (, October 26, 1999.

Thank You Mr. Lord. I really do appreciate the work you do. There are those who for what ever reason DGI. They appear to be the majority most days. We have to "detach"/"ignore" their senseless rambling. I can read the terror in some, who don't know how to handle reality and it is easier still to see that some are there to discourage and try to turn our heads. "We shall never, ever give up", Sir Winston Churchill. I believe he had the right message. Your postings and research have lead my dear friend Pete S. to encourage his daughter and her new husband to move back to South Dakota, from Central Florida. Thank You! I believe you have done a heroic thing in tackeling Y2K and those who would cover it up for their own selfish gain. Thanks again. Steve V.

-- Steve Vaughn (, October 26, 1999.

I greatly appreciate your efforts. And look forward to your postings.

I admire your determination and spirit...

God willing there should be many more like you.

Thank you for your efforts, Jim. Please continue alerting us whenever you have posted another article to your website. Whatever happens next year, you can be certain you have saved lives.

P.S. If you ever take a look at what's on my website, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

Thanks for the head's up, Jim.

I also appreciate your articles and will welcome any mention you make of something new. I admire your courage and level headed way of dealing with this whole issue. I have seen you on some of the video clips from time to time and you always handle yourself very professionally. You took on a real Hobbs Choice when you decided to dig into the more difficult side of reporting on Y2k news.

-- Gordon (, October 26, 1999.


Thought provoking.

Given that some/many/a few/all will not be ready for 01/01/2000 it seems reasonable to expect some major players to implement their contingency plans prior to rollover.

One example: To avoid gridlock in settling foreign exchange/Letters of Credit; International Monitoring recently testified that major global banks may delay Forex trading until it is tested and known which banks are compliant. This action appears that it will stymie trade and weaken the US Dollar. If Letters of credit are delayed, than the movement of trade goods could be slowed. If the US dollar is made more difficult to exchange, than other nations's banks may seek to increase their holdings in their own currency (especially in light of other nation's domestic liquidity demands).

If these contingency plans are implemented as a pre-emptive action prior to 12/31/1999 they may compound any Y2K snafu. Based on contingencies being implemented prior to 12/31/1999, it seems that the probability for Y2K to equal the BITR is zero.

Jim, I really am grateful for your courage to bring us the truth. I've quoted you time and again in my talks on Y2K. I do not think your views are extreme at all.

-- Ray (, October 26, 1999.

thanks jim keep them comming

Jim, Of course we want to know what you are up to. Thanks for everything you have done.

-- Mara (, October 26, 1999.

Thanks the Lord.

Your doing a great job! Screw-em!

-- FLAME AWAY (, October 27, 1999.

Agree, thanks buddy.

-- BigDog (, October 27, 1999.


When you posted the findings from the US Navy and were attacked by the polly's and the uninformed, I couldn't believe it. Every negative thing that was said about you was felt by myself and some of my associates. Keep going Jim. History will prove you right!


-- Mark Miclette (, October 27, 1999.

When our 'trusty leaders' are being remembered for hiding the truth that caused the disasters which could have been avoided, you will be remembered as the brave voice that spoke out in defiance of their silence and warned America. Keep on keeping on!

Anybody who could get Koskinen shook up that fast has my vote.
