2012 New Year’s Predictions

Happy New Year everyone!

Today we begin another year….and another election cycle….may we all keep our sanity.   Since I do not waste my time on resolutions that seldom make it to the next day ……instead I rather embarrass myself with annual predictions……..

Every year I predict a couple of things that I see that may come about during the course of the year….I also judge how I did in the previous year….so far I have been pretty good….not that Cayce would ever quote me but what the Hell it is fun to try and predict situations…..

First, let us review at my predictions for 2011….

1–unemployment will not go below 9%—- “-”  it fell to 8.6% blew this one!

2–inflation will rise to 2%–tie….official inflation is at 1%….real inflation is more like 7%

3–DC stays partisan……+

4–Germany has a set back–+  Germany is having to cover the whole EU

5–3% economic growth—– “-“……2% at best

6–Tax cuts will not create jobs……+

7–Major economics problems in Europe…still!……+

8–Afghan theater becomes more clouded…..+

9–Pakistan will become more unstable…..-  blew this one!

10-Energy & education will be hot issues…..-  blew another one!

How did I do?  5 good, 4 bad and 1 tie….I was 50% right…..a so-so year, but was Nostradamus 100%?

And now on to this year’s predictions…….

1–Obama squeaks out a win

2–Dems retake House but lose Senate

3–Violence returns big to Iraq

4–New problems for Libya

5–Inflation creeps up

6–Europe slips into chaos again…EU in danger

7–Syria sinks into all out civil war

8–Taleban steps up violence in Afghanistan in the Spring and Summer

9–Eliz. Warren wins Mass Senate seat

10-Romney wins the GOP nomination

There you have it….my Nostradamus moment!

Please have a great day with fun, food, family and FOOTBALL!  A Happy New Year to all my friends……Be safe!
