I am having Doc pull the plug. Thanks to all who participated and provided food for thought. I just can't justify the time anymore. I'll still be around on LOB on occasion. Thanks again.

A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
And he marveled because of their unbelief.

The regularity of your posting will be sorely missed. We look forward to your second coming over on LOB!
Much ass, grassy ass to you,
If your portfolio has you feeling irregular, for fast, long lasting relief, take a subscribatory. And support your local Stool!

Just a note to say I'm kinda' new to the neighborhood, but the brief time i've been here I've found your posts very provocative and fascinating.
I sure hope the good Doctor keeps these threads in archives as I'm wanting to read them more as I get time. Anyway, just wanted to sincerely say thank you for all your hard work and abilities. I sure as hell hope you keep posting at LOB.

Thanks for the effort. I always enjoy reading your posts.

Fair enuf YoYo and I know what you mean. You basically don't need your own thread and can post when the mood strikes you on LOB. No loss really, but let's hope the mood strikes you often and you have the time.
I have many opinions; but I strive not to act on them.

Thanks Yobob. I've learned a hell of a lot from you. Hope to see you around LOB soon.

I too understand and hope you post a thread, sort of a periodic column, on LOB when you can. I have been thinking alot about your last thread on the 8th regarding government and personal debt/government and personal responsibility.

I echo the above.
I always looked forward to your posts for their content and for making me think long after I've finished reading them.

I'll miss the thread Yobob and hope you keep it up on LOB. You said elsewhere you felt like you were preaching to the choir or to those who would never learn. While that may be true, there are a lot of people out there who find solace in finding you and not feeling crazy themselves for believing the same things. The choir needs to be fed as well and the bigger and more educated the choir, the better the chance for a decent outcome when the storm abates. Thanks for taking the heat.

Thanks Yobob for the effort. It's been a pleasure reading your work and the discussions ensuing with MH, Takachi, 27, Jorma and the rest. I'll miss it. Looking forward to seeing you on LOB.

Thanks for all you put into it. Illuminating and definitely a forum I enjoyed posting in. I too have kind of hit the end of the road in having time to post and peruse. I can do it occasionally but the real world pressures are turned up lately and I have to meet them. Some of your recent advice weighs heavily on how I am approaching this.
All the best.

Yobob, Tank you for all your sage advice. While I maintain some ideological differences, you have given me lots to think about, and on some points even changed my mind a little, politically speaking. This is the very best any writer can hope for in an audience. You may get the impression you're not having this effect, because those whose minds your changing, may not be vocal about it. They're more likely to voice their remaining counter opinions.
As far as the economy goes, you know it inside out and sideways, and I have been recommending the Stoolie site to anyone who will listen, with special emphasis on your column. For the big picture, you beat any columnist I've read anywhere, on the net, or in the most esteemed print journals. In other words, as they say in Hollywood, "We luv ya, Baby, don't ever change!"
P.S. I sold my house last night. If it weren't for you, I may have dragged my feet putting it on the market, and may well have been screwed. Tanks again!

Your commentary has surely sewered any cosmopolitan doubt about the presence of brilliance in the hinterlands.There may be only so much to say about the economic predicament, but your vision is distinguished, so I hope you really will continue to let us know what you see as this thing evolves. Thanks.

To funny. I just posted in another thread how I finally paid Doc. I stated that I used his anals pretty much just for the real estate insights and info on the feed. I then stated that the real reason I paid up was for Doc providing the forum containing the insights of folks like Yoyo, MH, Thorass, Easy AL, SEG, etc.... Within days both the crazy SEAsian goldbug and the crazy redneck camper salesman stated that they were closing up shop. What the hell did I do? The gold nutter seems to have reconsidered and I hope you will to yoyo. I pass your pieces around to an e-mail list of friends. We all get a lot from them even if we aren't very vocal about it. No matter what ya decide thanks for sharing the brain cycles.
Anyone that feels differently than I on this subject is an intolerant racist impinging on my freedom, liberty, and numerous other rights I have that all center around me not having to tolerate any ideas that differ from mine. You intolerant bigots are just heinous.
Intolerant people should be shot.
