So, how much money has Gary made on this non event?
-- mike (firstname.lastname@example.org), December 31, 1999.
Mike, do you make money at your job? Well, let me inform you that Gary North is a Journalist and he makes money at Journalism. It's the American way. If you don't like it you can move to Russia. Maybe you would be happier there!!!! (You asshole!)

I hope Gary has made a bundle of money from this, because without his efforts, most people would not have ever been aware of the Y2K problem and much of the code remediation would not have taken place.

no, I don't make money I'm an unemployed nuclear worker. and apparently theres no nuclear clean up work in russia this morning either.

Y2K is not about Gary North. It is not about me. It is not about Mike Hyatt or Ed Yourdon or Jim Lord. Y2K is about computers.
-- Lane Core Jr. (firstname.lastname@example.org), December 31, 1999.
Ha! Gary could have made millions, but I doubt if he did. He's a guy with the ability to make a bundle, but in the public interest chooses not to profit. As actor John Houseman once said: "He makes money the old fashioned way...HARD WORK!"
Beyond Y2K issues, I also know that he offers his (downloadable) books FREE of charge at his Christian website.
Compare that to you...an unemployed stiff. You're not on welfare are you? Work your brain a little...get a marketable idea, and then you won't have to gripe about those who are successful in this world.
PS....once you get your grand idea...DO IT FOR FREE! It'll be good for the soul!

TM you missunderstand I do not begrudge the man. Judging by your response, I believe he may have reached exhalted cult leader status!! I also apologize if you did not understand my nuclear PUN upon the first soviet reactor crossing the date line.Rest easy as I have been supplying your food stamps and cheese wheels for quite some time.

Mike...aside from your feeble attempts at humor, the issue of GN's character assasination on your part remain. Do you know the man? I've never met him, so any assumptions I have about his character are based on comparisons to the hundreds of Y2K hucksters that both you and I see on the internet. He may be wrong about Y2K issues (time will tell), but that doesn't make him dishonest. Show me how he has profited at the expense of anyone. Prove it or be silent.

TM, you are a fool if you don't think North cleaned up on y2kfear. Check out the big fat idiot site for dozens of links to gary's kickbacks and other money making schemes.

I doubt sincerely that North was trying to get rich on this. I do beleive he was trying to gain considerable power however. His motivations seem to be pure ego gratification and he wants to be a prophet in the worst way. Just read up on his history! I have posted some of the things he has said before and will not do so again as it would be redundant. He clearly wanted this to be a catastrophe and tried to get people into a bunker mentality. I beleive he was trying to create a self-fulfilling prophecy so that he and his minions, however improbable it seems to you and I, could try and rule a segment of society based on his Christian Reconstrcutionist Philosophies. If all he predicted had come true and his followers were the only ones prepared, would he not be able to wield an exceptional amount of power? His own writings indicate that he was hoping for somethig to break up the fabric of the country because only then could he "force people to turn to God". My beleif is, that God in that statement is North himself. This is what he was wanting and if you don't beleive it, do your research on the mans history before ridiculing me.
Beware false prophets!
Y2K Preparedness is a good idea. Like many others who claimed they were the way and the light (other than Jesus) he will eventually go down in history as a failed cult leader. I put him and Jim Jones and David Koresh in the same category.
-- DAVID (email@example.com), January 01, 2000.
Well, you may be right after all Waco was the result of a "righteous man concerned with the welfare of others". My real question is how do you live with yourself knowing that you have led your family to live their lives according to a false prophet for the last 6-24 months? And concerning GN, is it any wonder that he has been unreachable? or that the banks were the first to be y2k compliant(his was probably first of all)
