Predictions for US & world - add your own

PostBy: smokeyCityTeacher On: Wed Mar 10, 2010 2:51 am

1) In this decade, California will go belly up full blown completely bankrupt. Of course you are saying ..it already is and you are right but it has not formally declared as such and is still doing business as the state of CA albeit at a 50B deficit. IT won' be long before it officially gives up the ghost and reaches out to D.C for a bailout. Obama will bail CA out at your expense (in return for 55 electoral votes)

2) Obama will get re-elected in 2012. This is my prediction NOT my wish. The man has a gift of oratory and Jedi magic + he is of the correct demographic to have 35% of the vote in his pocket no matter what he does or does not do. By the time America gets over its guilt it will be too late. Political correctness will have crippled our ability to defend our self from any enemy foreign or domestic.

3) Europe will align in a backlash against Islamic immigration. More and more Europeans are finally daring to say what they feel - that Islam is just not compatible with traditional European culture and they will elect leaders who espouse views that are now condemned as far rightist. More and more will rally around these leaders out of a sense of survival. (see Geert Wilders as an example of the the new breed of EU politicians)

4) Domestic Islamic Jihad against the US will grow exponentially. Attacks from Ft. Hood types and Jihad Jane types will be weekly news - our government will be unwilling to take the needed steps for prevention due to political correctness. The more Islamic terrorist attack the US - the more Obama will appease and work to protect the name of Islam from being defamed. He will assimilate more and more Islamic sympathizers into his cabinet and justice department. Eventually we will not be able to tell our own government from our enemies.

5) Europe will withstand Islam - the US will succumb.

I am a member of the newest political party
"POP"
*New Political Party.*

*Not Democrat, Not Republican, Not Independent.*

*It's called the "PISSED OFF PARTY" (or POP).*

*This party is dedicated to vote every incumbent out of office in
the next elections.*
*No matter if you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent. Just don't vote for the incumbent.*
*
*We need to send a message to all politicians, that we're tired of their B.S.*
*We need people elected who will use some common sense and do what is best for the people and country, not someone voting to see how much "pork" they can add to a bill.

*If the country votes out all the incumbents, the new incoming
politicians will get the message..*

*It's pretty simple. Nobody needs to change parties and lets face
it, there's plenty of blame to spread around.*
*A few good politicians will lose their job but they probably have
better retirement and insurance then 95% of the American public.*
*You've had to struggle for the last 5 years. Some of you have lost
your job and may be working in some other sector just to feed your
family.*
*I guarantee you, none of them will suffer like this country has.*

*If you like whats going on and think this is a bad idea, delete this.*
*But if you're fed up and think this is a good idea, then pass this
E-mail on.*
*If you really think this has legs, then a website and a blog could
help get the word out.*

*To All 535 voting members of the Legislature; it is now official
you are ALL corrupt morons:*

*a.. The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had
234 years to get it right and it is broke.*
*b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years
to get it right and it is broke.*
*c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to
get it right and it is broke.*
*d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get
it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and
transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.*
*e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had
44 years to get it right and they are broke.*
*f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to
get it right and it is broke.*
*g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our
dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees
with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than
ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal
failure.*

*You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down
our throats while overspending our tax dollars.*

*AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A
GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM? *
*IT'S NOT ABOUT THE NEED FOR GOOD HEALTH CARE, IT'S ABOUT TRUSTING
THE GOVERNMENT TO RUN IT!*

I predict WE the people will get pushed to the point where as this type of thing will happen....

The begining of the end starts in 2012! Either he is re-elected or not it makes no diffrence. Any way you cut it half of this country is going to be pissed off. Civil war breaks out ,drags the rest of the world in to it and you end up with a big free for all. China will actually side against the US gov.and the UN,and back the freedom fighters. Sound far fetched ? Does any one know how to say friend in chinese ? :(

My predictions are rarely correct but, if I had to venture a guess or two, I would guess the following:

1. China will cease to peg the yuan to the dollar. It will begin its tour de force of economic hegemony over the ROTW.

2. A health care bill in some form is passed that appeases everyone involved and it does nothing for most people but increase their out-of-pocket costs in the years ahead. (before the election)

3. We begin the second leg of a double dip recession. Commodities will fall (within the next 18-24 months). Deflation destroys market values of property. Unemployment hits 20%.

4. Taxes will be raised on families and individuals earning over 70,000 (after the election). Debt defaults run rampant for consumers.

5. The debt curve of the US government goes nearly vertical bailing out pensions, banks, insurance companies, investment houses, homeowners, nationalized health care and states.

6. The bond ratings of US debt drop causing dumping by foreign holders in exchange for oil, gold and US property assets.

7. Deflationary pressures cease in commodities and inflation runs rampant as a result of bailouts.

8. The US dollar collapses.

9. The US government is in total crisis.

10. The people sit on their couches munching their last bag of Jax, watching TV, not knowing what to do but are still thinking about electing a democrat who promises to fix all this mess with a hand out.
