Default "Doomer" Support Group

I am thinking about forming the "The Blue Marble" Chapter of the Doomer Support Group (USA).

Perhaps we could apply to the IRS for #503C (tax exempt) status?

FB could be Treasurer, I nominate CS for President (because she has the stamina to keep the Doomers in line). Kassy could be Vic-President because she is always there.

We could hold meetings on FB's hard drive?

Dietrich - I support the nomination of yourself to CFO - however, FB has to authorize all Democratically appointed positions since we live in her Hard drive.



And for Oric......

We'll need a fashion coordinator. Don't want to waltz into TEOTWAWKI looking all frumpy and out of style.

Uhm i'm a he Andy , Kassy is just a shortened version of Kassandra which was just a nick i started out with at some point. When the Agonist booted out the flubies because they were so annoyed with the Niman debates the most hopped over to CurEvents and that already had at least one Cassandra so i just shortened the nick.

But i'm honored to be be the VP & i'll gladly consult on shooting through doors and whatever VPs do on top of that.

As Liquor Inventory Control Specialist, I can assure you that money is extremely important for initial inventory and stocking basics for home-made replenishment.

The final blow out: "Oh GAWD - we're all gonna DIIIEEE!!" party requires lubrication of a fiscal type so we can all get properly lubricated.

Alcohol steralizes stuff & all that - can't hurt to test that theory...

Well I've never been one to worry about sartorial splendor, but I do love me some tin foil and duct tape, when the mood is doom'ish enough. So what the heck, between tin foil and duct tape I could keep all the members of the Doomer Support Group appropriately attired.

Of course I do not guaranty the the wearer of said tin foil and duct tape fashions will be able to preserve their modesty if they partake too freely of Twoolf's beverages

Works for me. But we need a condom distribution manager if that's going to be the fashion standard.

I volunteer to monitor the chocolate stash and to make sure that it is distributed in an equitable manner. I'm completely trustworthy when it comes to chocolate!

When my daughter was in high school she came to my office before school, put a chocolate bar and a $100 bill on my desk, and asked me to mind them until she came home.

When she came home, the money was still there.

Ever since, "You can trust mom with money but you CAN'T trust her with chocolate!"

Better keep that chocolate under lock and key, AndreaCA. A few days without and I cannot vouch for anyone's safety.
