What to Celebrate at 2000? End of America as we...greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
It seems that the only think viable to "celebrate" is the possible end of USA as we know it.
End of liberty and free speach - End of taxation with some representation (once IRS goes, forget about protesting taxes, it will be pay to play only) - End of represenative government. etc.
Celebrate with Kool Aid seems more appropriate. I know that most of us doomers may be caught up in a negative trap, but we have read too much, seen too much, and tried too hard to even convince close family and friends that self-reliance is prudent (old American way).
"Party like it's 1999" is starting to sound better than 2000!

dw, When's the last time we had real representative government, anyway? Don't tell me most of those people haven't been in someone's pocket for a long, long time.

Go do something constructive instead of whining.

Celebrate green grass, blue skies, little puppy dogs, a contented cat's purr. Celebrate your husband, wife, or significant other. Celebrate children. Celebrate flowers. Celebrate a good meal, good company. Celebrate the majestic movement of the seasons. Celebrate clean water. Celebrate the perfectly broken in levis & shoes so comfortable you don't want to remove them. Celebrate continued health. Celebrate your choice of creator. Celebrate how you got your licks in during the snowball fight.
Get creative, there are lots of things to celebrate.
