Default Time to Say Goodbye To my Friends

I have enjoyed the time spent here. Many good folks on this board with great ideas and insite. I will miss you guys a bunch. With times being what they are I feel it will be best to put my energy were it will best serve. My veiws will probably attract the wrong people to my front door someday soon. I can fight a better fight if I am under the radar so that's were I will be. Take care everyone and God Bless. Oh I almost forgot one last thing of importance. Buck, I may not have agreeded with you most the time but You are my friend. Keep safe and enjoy that pipe.

Mac I am sorry to see you go , but I understand why. Like many on this board and elsewhere I have wondered what could happen. often times I think I just need to keep my big mouth shut! Wish I was closer so we could get the spouses together and have some coffee. Love to you and your family, take care friend. Raven

best of luck to you, friend -

don't miss the message here folks - someone having to make a decision like this is a sure indicator of how dire our situtation is right here and now - not that it can't and won't get worse, but the die is certainly cast -

wow this is so close in timing,, i stopped by a friends house last night to ask how she thought she would know when it was time to bug out and just chuck it all...she basically told me that its gonna be in your gut and follow your instinct,,keep your eyes and ears open.. her bob's are already packed i'm just starting to get the lil things for mine.. i think what we all need now is to pray for each other... and for our country now above all else... people have been warned and some have only a short time but i believe that God is still giving enough grace for those who are finding out at the last minute.. may we all see only our own tracks behind us...

Another Gray man gone.

I believe he will not be the last Gray man of woman to back out.

If you take the time to watch there already are a lot lest posting on all boards.

The jack boots are just waiting.

Free speech is taking a back seat what a shame.

Are you really comfortable with all your information on a public message board?
NO WAY would I give out that much information.
Just wondering.

Please pardon my ignorance here but... why would anybody have to run away from a message board? This whole thread, including MadMac's leaving, is real cryptic to me. I don't understand one little bit of what is going on here.

This is all starting to resemble that whole Y2K thing... and we know what a bust THAT was! :

I'd be open to somebody explaining all this to me... or attempting to anyway.
