Isn't all news potential timebombs? I think we should leave it as it is.

Y2K isn't over yet.

I think the name is just fine. Please don't change it.

Don't listen to a guy who can't even spell: imminent

What also has an excessive amount of question marks there also. There must be a better place than here where he can relieve his stress.

Pollies and Liberals (are they the same thing?) hate this board. Why, you ask? Because they hate that "us doomers" can share information we find that we think might be of interest to the others here. They also hate it that here is a place that is not controlled by a news media outlet. They cannot stand it that here is a contrarian group with news that is up to the minute as well as grassroots reporting. Remember in November and December and the grocery store reports? There is no way we could have gotten that news anywhere but here.

I think it is telling that pollies and trolls just can't leave this place alone to the people who want to exchange news and opinions here.

ps. There IS room for pollies and liberals who can have an intelligent discussion. There is no room for dummies who just want to pick fights here in the hopes that they can drive as many folks as possible away.

Yes, this board has many many people who are concerned with the direction that this country has taken. I am one of them.

If you don't like it here, then please do yourself and all of us a big favor. Flake off.

>> Pollies and Liberals (are they the same thing?) hate this board. Why, you ask? <<

No, "Pollies and Liberals" are not the same thing. Further, you are making an unwarranted assumption that many of the regulars on TB2000 aren't liberals. Some would be happy to acknowledge that label.

Lastly, if all you know about liberals is what Rush Limbaugh and limbaugh-wannabes like Ollie North tell you about them, then it's time you got out of that cramped little nook and found out more about reality.

There's nothing about liberalism that requires one to believe that the world is just a Happy Meal away from reaching perfection. In my family, liberalism has always been about struggling to make society a slightly better-ordered and gentler place, in spite of the pain and chaos. And about not accepting defeat when you don't succeed. Both foresight and prudence have a place in that philosophy.

Rant on.

Damn! I get so *tired* of Tory fools defining one of the great traditions of western civilization down into some mock-Disney cartoon version of politics that says far more about the smallness of their minds and the meagerness of their education than it does about liberalism. I say, if you want to tell me what liberalism is, you had better be prepared to live it first.

Rant off.

I believe its all going to crash within ten years. Maybe the refineries down will trigger it. I LIKE the DOOMER label.

That is why it is one of the most poppular?

The news of ours demise is defintely exagerated.

Hey Brian Mc, I see you can't stomach hypocrites also. Drop out man. It is going where it is headed.

>> BTW Brian are you a Mason? <<

Gotta laugh! I am not a member of any organization! I'm allegic to them, even though I can see how useful they are in society and how useless an isolated individual tends to be. I'm just a born curmudgeon.
