Top 10 Predictions for 2012

2012 can’t be much worse than 2011. Let us look into the crystal ball and see what will happen in the New Year. Here are the Top 10 Predictions for 2012.

1. GOP wins presidency: Despite all the bickering between the Republican presidential candidates, one will emerge to beat President Obama, who will be sunk by the bad economy, high unemployment, out-of-control deficits, and Obamacare. His performance in office has been so terrible that Obama would lose even if his opposition was Ru Paul.

2. GOP wins back Senate: Republicans win back the Senate with room to spare, gaining a 54-46 majority by taking back Democratic seats in Florida, Nebraska, North Dakota, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Wisconsin, and Virginia. Alas, Scott Brown loses in Massachusetts as the Bay State reverts to its liberal ways by electing Elizabeth Warren.

3. Obamacare overturned: The Supreme Court will overturn the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) on a 5-4 vote, declaring the individual mandate unconstitutional. The four votes to uphold the healthcare law came from the two Clinton (Breyer and Ginsburg) and two Obama (Sotomayor and Kagan) appointees. Don’t forget to thank former President George W. Bush for appointing John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the high court.

4. Russia crackdown: Vladimir Putin cracks down on Russian protesters, using the military in action reminiscent of Tiananmen Square. The action only inspires unrest throughout the nation and Chechen rebels resume their conflict with a spate of violent activity.

5. Greece defaults: Greece defaults on its financial obligations, sending the Euro into a tailspin. By year’s end the entire European Union teeters on collapse as Italy and Spain’s balance sheets worsen. The turmoil helps keep U.S. Treasury bills near record lows as investors seek a safe-haven from uncertainty.

6. Arizona immigration law upheld: The Supreme Court unanimously upholds SB 1070, the strict Arizona immigration law. With the constitutionality of the matter finally settled, numerous other states rush to enact similar laws with the resulting political furor aiding Republicans on Election Day.

7. Syria regime change: The second year of the Arab Spring brings regime change to as President Bashar al-Assad flees to neighboring Iran. Unfortunately, anti-Western Islamists seize control of the nation as well as taking over new governments in Egypt and Libya.

8. Inflation kicks in: The Federal Reserve’s qualitative easing and the nation’s massive budget deficits kick inflation up a notch. Watch for the inflation rate to hit 5% with a rise in prices at the grocery store higher than the official Consumer Price Index.

9. Occupy goes away: 2012 will see the Occupy Wall Street movement fizzle out as winter weather and cities enforcing local ordinances drive the motley crew back to their parents’ basement. Good riddance to that group of misfits, ruffians and professional activists.

10. Temperatures stay flat: Global warming continues its hiatus as world temperatures remain flat. Still, Al Gore and Hollywood movie stars push their alarmism while UN officials and climatologists gather at a plush conference in an exotic locale to discuss how to handle the fallout from Climategate 2.

    If all of this came true I’d gladly buy you a glass of 18 year old single malt scotch whiskey.

  • Keith1941

    You may well be right.  If America’s doesn’t stop spending, it isn’t “if”, it is “when”.

    Years ago, the Libs said we should be more like Europe.  They are getting their wish…of course when it all fails..blame it on Bush.

  • Guest

    And for honorable mention,the TEA party gives the GOP a major arm-twisting.

  • Dustoff

    Remember now. That’s IF we elect a REP to the W/H.  If o-dumber remains, all bets are off. 

  • Walter_Peterson

    Actually, global temperatures are already rising this year.  This typically happens at the high point of the 11-year sunspot cycle, which occurs in 2012. It’s one of the most reliable climate predictors. Of course, the hysterical will tout it as proof of global warming.

  • Keith1941

    You’re right.   Anybody, SHOULD beat obama, but with the corruption and fraud, who knows.  obama is a Marxist….if history has taught us anything, deceit, lies, etc. mean nothing to these people.  It is the END result that means everything. 

    We are living in an America that I don’t even recognize anymore. I guess America learned nothing from the corruption of Chicago politics in 1960.  Well, of course not, we don’t really teach history anymore.

  • Rick Blaine

    Wrong on every count except #7.

  • Rick Blaine

    Make up your mind. Is he a socialist, Marxist, or Muslim?

  • AgTrotter

    In my mind, #8 should be at the top of the list. Once inflation becomes apparent (it’s already here, it’s just being covered by the Fed monetary policy), the impact is going to be brutal. And, because the Man-Child has pissed away trillions of future tax $ on nothing, there will be no way around it.

  • AgTrotter

    Yes, yes and yes.

    Next.

  • AgTrotter

    Given that you will still be living in a tent somewhere, I guess the OWS bowel movement will technically still be alive.

  • Rick Blaine

    You would have to explain that dichotomy since the terms are all mutually exlusive.

  • Keith1941

    All of the above!

  • CORMAC___NJ

    This is a very well-thought-out list, and one I expect to
    largely come true.

    .

    There are a couple that I believe might need some amending:

    .

    8.
    Inflation kicks in – I expect inflation to greatly exceed 5%.
    Although the driving force behind inflation is monetary, there is a balance between
    price increases and other forces, primarily businesses’ perceptions of their ability
    to hike prices without losing sales.

    .

    With margins slim and costs rising, all marketing executives
    will need is a belief that “everyone is doing it” and the floodgates will open.
    There is a spiraling effect of increases that Americans have never seen, and
    thus don’t understand the least bit. Essentially, one business’s prices are
    another one’s costs, and as costs rise so must prices, in order to maintain
    profits.

    .

    Once the trend gets rolling it becomes a self-perpetuating  force which only stops when the end-customer
    runs out of money.  5% per year is
    applicable before the psychological starting gun gets fired. After that, who
    knows.

    .

    9.
    Occupy goes away – I wish this were true, and if OWS was really
    a grass-roots movement it could be, but the whole rabble is really just an
    activist arm of the usual Democratic agitators (unions, ACORN, moveon.org, Code
    Pink etc).

    .

    With the election looming, Obama unpopular and a gigantic
    Democratic war-chest, I see no reason to believe the population of these
    political squatter camps won’t balloon. They may have to move into friendlier
    digs, and thus sacrifice some of their outsider image, but going away seems out
    of the question.

    .

    I also wonder if the left is preparing for mass-rioting in
    the event of a Republican POTUS win. If that’s the case, a well-connected group
    of seasoned zealots will be the centerpiece of an attempted “American Spring.”
    The real goal will, of course, be to prevent the will of the people from being
    represented in government (like Wisconsin, from which I’ll bet many of the OWS
    bums got their start).

  • AgTrotter

    “You would have to explain that dichotomy since the terms are all mutually exlusive.”

    Um, no they are not.

  • AgTrotter

    1. Sadly, no.
    2. Yes.
    3. Yes.
    4. Yes.
    5. Yes.
    6. Yes.
    7. No.
    8. Yes, with horrific negative impact.
    9. No, because they’ll just rename the same worthless movement.
    10. No. We’ve been in a period of low sunspot activity that has already begun to reverse.

  • Rick Blaine

    Answer me this, if you can. Republicans go on and on about strict adhesion to the constitution, yet when millions of people whose opinions are diametrically opposed to yours wish exercise those contitutional rights and voice their concerns then it is the Republicans who wish to silence any dissent. Please show me the part in the constitution that allows dissent to be silenced. I’m sure all your small minded conservative friends could use that information when they go our protesting against the protesters. Oh wait, you guys don’t have the courage for that, do you? Is that really how your America is supposed to be? One party, and total allegiance to THE PARTY? What I find most disturbing about warped world views like yours is the fact that in spite of all your grumblings you don’t have the guts to go out there and do anything about it much less educate yourself about world events that exist outside of the FOX news bubble. The Republican party is in shambles, any fool can see that. You people don’t even like the guys that your trying to get elected. Romney wears magic underwear. Doesn’t that cause you any concern? And Santorum thinks the earth is 6000 years old. Can you imagine a president consulting a crystal ball before every decision. That’s what the rethugs would foist on America. Science denying, close minded, bible thumpers who want nothing more that to establish a theocracy. Small minded and closed to new ideas just like the church has been for centuries. The party of jebus, walker of water, and zombie extraordinaire. Good luck pal, you guys are going to need it.

  • CORMAC___NJ

    It’s because the majority of Republican politians are frauds. They talk a good game, but in reality they’re just whores whose real concern is getting and keeping power by supporting the establishment.

    With a voting public that lets the media tell them how to vote, and a media that is always for sale, the path to political success has been to sell out your values in favor of whatever big-government/big business alliance provides the most taxpayer cash.

    And Obamacare is the mother of all cash cows.

  • Rick Blaine

    Um, I don’t think you can have an atheist Muslim that practices Socialism which allows for some free market economy and acknowledges that each person is allotted resources according to how hard they work, and Communism which seeks communal ownership of everything and only allows that each person is allotted resources according to their need. And you wonder why normal people think republicans are nuts. I wish you would go read some books or go back to school or something.

  • Patriot41

    Alto, a major correction in your comments.  Congress did not approve that bill, the democrat party pushed it through, refusing to allow the GOP members to take any part in it, don’t you remember?  Since when has the democrats ever paid any attention to either the Constitution or the laws of the land, when in the majority?  

  • Patriot41

    Seems to me that there were a lot of democrats who were bribed to push through Obamacare, enough said about that.

  • AgTrotter

    “Um, I don’t think you can have an atheist Muslim that practices Socialism”

    Um, islam is a form of religion (cult, really) while socialism is a form of governance. They damn sure can be practiced simultaneously.

    Of course, I’m sure that the extended tent living has withered your few brain cells.

  • AgTrotter

    “yet when millions of people whose opinions are diametrically opposed to yours wish exercise those contitutional rights and voice their concerns then it is the Republicans who wish to silence any dissent”

    Really, dumbass? If your inane stupidity has been silenced, how is it you are posting on HE and living in a tent in a park somewhere?

    “The party of jebus”

    In one small phrase, you have aptly summed up what a loathsome, small turd you are. Your parents must be so proud. Gee Marge, look at what a jackass our daughter is. Not only is she a complete moron, she’s also filty and smelly. Do you think we should get her to stop living in a tent?

  • Rick Blaine

    I am posting because repubs, much to their consternation, realize that in spite of how much they hate opposing viewpoints, they are powerless to do anything about it. And my apologies, I didn’t mean to step on your superstitious toes. Do you still believe in Santa too?

  • AgTrotter

    I have always found the self-absorbed arrogance of atheists fascinating. While they claim to be tolerant people, they quite possibly are the most intolerant people roaming the Earth (which, I’m guessing, they believe just happens to exist by mere chance).

    As for your posting, once again you prove yourself too stupid to grasp the point. You are indeed posting on a Conservative site, therefore you are not being silenced. I get that you’ll never understand the irony, but do try to pick up your reading comprehension skills.

  • Rick Blaine

    You just don’t get it. An atheist Muslim who practices socialism? It’s an interesting concept but not practical. A lack of belief would be inherently oppositional to a belief in a god, however a belief in god is absolutly part of socialism, just the way that Jesus practiced it. Remember His words, “You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” For Jesus, helping the poor and the outcast is not optional: it is the essence of what it means to love God. In the parable of the last judgement he welcomes the righteous into heaven saying, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” When the righteous answered that they didn’t recall doing any of these things, he said, “as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” Even though I don’t believe in any of that stuff, you do, but your actions and words speak volumes about how much you really “love the lord.” I think you either need to spend more time in church or just admit that the only reason you say you believe that stuff is because you are afraid of what others would say if you actually spoke what was on your mind, that you know its all BS, because you sure don’t practice what you preach.

  • Altosackbuteer

    But I wasn’t talking about pushing the bill through.

    Pushing the bill through is irrelevant to what I was trying to say.  After all, Judge Vinson couldn’t possibly have ruled on the bill’s unconstitutionality before it was passed, right?

    No — I was talking about AFTER the bill was passed, with IMPLEMENTING it came up for appropriations and voting.

    Congress SHOULD have refused to fund what was an existing law and and existing request for appropriation, on grounds that the whole thing may be flatly unconstitutional and ILLEGAL.

  • Altosackbuteer

    You said, “You would have to explain that dichotomy since the terms are all mutually exlusive.”

    No, the are NOT.  Marxism essentially IS Socialism — a major subset of Socialism, if you will, and if you remember your high school algebra.  All Marxists are Socialists.  And — MAYBE, ARGUABLY — it MAY be that not all Socialists are Marxists.  But I don’t agree even with that.  Socialists and Marxists agree on the final solution; all they disagree about are the ways and means of getting there.

    As for Moo-slum, it is perfectly possible to be a Moo-slum and a Socialist.  Indeed, it would be even NATURAL to be both, since private ownership of property is not a known Moo-slum doctrine.

    Indeed, Islam BANS loaning at interest, which is a principle CAPITALIST tool.  That sounds like Marxism to me.

  • Rick Blaine

    I never said I was tolerant. No atheist I know is tolerant of superstitious BS. I thought Christians were supposed to turn the other cheek, to forgive and love their enemies, to give all they have to the poor, to seek gods will, to oppose war and work for peace and justice. Yet there you guys go, foaming at the mouth about homosexuals all the while ignoring the gluttonous, the greedy, the hypocrites, and the fornicators. For some reason they are all welcomed with open arms into your church even though they are still fat, greedy and hypocritical. But not de gayz. No sir. You need more bible reading or something, or is it that Christians just like to cherry pick the stuff they like? You know in practically the same verse in Leviticus that discusses homosexuality is an admonishment to not eat shellfish. Why do you guys ignore that one?

  • Altosackbuteer

    Do you know what the Maunder Minimum is?  It is a larger sunspot cycle, overlaying several 11-year cycles. 

    Even at the maximum of any 11-year cycle, during a Maunder Minimum, the number of sunspots is lower than what is typically found at the peack of an 11-year cycle.

    We are DEFINITELY in a Maunder Minimum now.

    The last time this happend was in the 18th Century at the time of the American Revolution — a time when Hans Brinker really could skate on those silver skates because the canals in Amsterdam were frozen over; when one could walk across both the frozen Thames and Hudson Rivers; when Boston Harbor was FROZEN over.

  • Rick Blaine

    Well at least you got part of it right. All religions are socialist ventures. Jesus was a socialist and in religion it is necessary. Does your church give food to the poor? Do they give clothes to the poor? Do they give money to needy families? That is socialism. And for your enlightenment, Socialism denotes a broad system of ideas. Marxism is a materialistic conception of history which seeks to explain the development of all societies and furthermore, make predictions about future social change. Marxists consider the material world, nature and society as constantly moving. Whereas, the socialists emphasise the organic unity of society. Marxists consider the material world as an integrated whole in which all things and phenomena are interconnected and interdependent. Whereas, socialists believe in equality and abolition of private enterprise. Marxism provides a scientific explanation of nature and society.

  • Altosackbuteer

    No more than we believe in the MYTH of Anthropogenic Global Warming.

  • Altosackbuteer

     But you SHOULD HOPE that OWS DOESN’T go away.  The longer those smelly, idle BUMS hang around there, doing nothing but fornicating, taking drugs, raping each other, defecating in public, and spreading disease — the more the rest of the population is turned off against both them and Øbama Øsama.

  • Altosackbuteer

    You are talking about the Maunder Minimum.

    What more do you know about such a reversal?

  • AgTrotter

    “I never said I was tolerant.”

    No one stated that you were, dumbass! As for the rest of your diatribe, please go back to stealing MACs and engaging in tent rapes.

  • yawnyawn

    Perhaps the writer who is looking forward to the RNC Convention being one in which he/ she, hopes that the republicans will tear themselves apart, even though he/she, has not revealed his/ her favorite Kool-aid flavor, may have a good point. If they indeed do as that writer hopes and there is a deadlock,  the convention can begin draft movement for  Congressman Allen West of Florida. Now he would clean B. H. Obama’s clock. The problem then becomes, where can the RNC find enough thugs. Maybe some hmmmm, Black Panthers.  

  • Dustoff

    All 3.

    Happy now dummy.  

  • AgTrotter

    We are obviously no where near the Mauder Minimum. However, it appears unquestionable that we have been experiencing a low phase since the ’50s. My reversal comment is mostly based upon the law of averages.

  • Altosackbuteer

    Black Panthers are respectable profesionals.  Doubtless they will sell their services to the highest bidder, without regard for ideology and at most only some regard for race.

  • Dustoff

    Sure rick.  Mr OWS loser himself.   So I see you guys are raising  huge rats in DC. 

    You freaks never learn basic clean up skills. 

  • AgTrotter

    AW, I personally believe that Ginsburg has been dead for a few years. Much like Weekend At Bernie’s, the left has merely been carting her out when needed.

  • Dustoff

     Republicans who wish to silence any dissent. Please show me the part in the constitution that allows dissent to be silenced.

    LOL… did you even make it pass grade school.  The people stopping you from wrecking city after city are LIB’s.  My God this guy is dumb.

    Clearly, the democrat majority did not give a hoot about what was constitutional or not, they rammed the bill through knowing that the GOP would not have the power to stop it.

  • http://www.winface.com/ Paul Murphy

    I sure hope you’re right – but

    1 – I doubt the occupy movement will go away. I think it will become both more racially centered and more violent. Basically I think Occupy was a dry run for an attempt to make the summer of 2012 hot, nasty, and violent in support of Obamacon  rhetoric. Bear in mind that many think (as I do) that it came from Fenton Communications (Note: the facts on this are unclear) – run by another of Obama’s ex-weathermen friends and supporters.

    2 – I also doubt that 5:4 court split. Kennedy is weak; if Kagan does not recuse (as she should) this could easily be 4:5 for Obama et al.

  • Concerned4America

    Let us hope that you are wrong about the Senate. I would really like to see a 61-39 split.

    OWS will go away.  But only after Obama loses the election.  OWS will have lost its usefulness only after Obama loses the election.  Prediction:  They stop their protests, day after election.

  • Chris Dunn

    Have to agree with Rick, Keith1941, altosackbuteer and dustoff. Lenin was a Marxist. He advocated for an armed revolutionary vanguard to forcably take power in a corrupt state. He then attempted social engineering programmes such as equal rights for women, proletarians, and bourgeoisie alike. These programmes were often disasterous and co-incided with mass famines, death, destruction of millions of lives of ordinary people. Obama is not like this. Your president seems to be a rational person. His foreign and domestic policy seems more enlightened and benign than his predecessor’s. Really these sorts of blogs make us here in the rest of the world feel a bit sad for you who live in a country where you don’t want people to have equal access to basic social services. Where is your Christian conscience? Just forgive and get on with becoming the great society you could be. Start leading the world like you keep saying you should! And put down the guns for everyone’s sake

  • jagscl

    Is there any reason anyone should respond to this guy.  Why not just let him babble on alone?

  • RIN0Huner

    I predict as we get closer to the election and it appears evident that the “Republican” candidate is going to lose, firearm and ammunition sales will escalate beyond anything we’ve seen yet and will make the spike in 2008 look like nothing.

  • 2richard1

    One item that has been overlooked that needs to be addressed the over proliferation of guns in America.  The stats show since 9/11 a million Americans have been killed by guns.  And now we want to have open carry.  I think of that innocent little girl shot at that political event in Arizona laying down and asking the neighbor who brought her also laying down and shot ”what is happening.”  This little sweetheart was dying and never got to experience a full life and all its richness because of these ridiculous laws on the books about guns.   Women have shown themselves much more responsible than men committing maybe 5% of the crime.  It’d be better to only let them have guns on their person when going outside the household and let the individual man put in for a concealed permit.  There needs to be a neighborhood watch command on each block monitoring who has what and provide safety tips and education on the use of firearms. 

  • 2richard1

    That is so true.  He has painted himself into a corner on this movement.  One thing might shut Al up.  ”hey Al how about giving all that money you have made on global warming to charity.”  He’ll be running for cover like he did with the masseuse.

  • warrant4

    You Sir, are the problem. When you deny the spiritual part of the human experience you deny a basic part of what humanity is. In denying that humanity you become humanistic as well as sociopathic. This is then the source of all the legislation taking away freedom and protection and replacing them with restrictions “for our own good”.
    So when Christians extend their beliefs to their lifes and try to set a high level of moral expectations to their elected officials, you then condem them and the expectations as being hypocritical because all Christians are not perfect. Liberals have been using this circular logic for decades to deride and destroy a belief system most beneficial to social justice and real personal freedom.  You also ignore scientific evidence against your own superstitious beliefs; you know; the liberal sacred cows which cannot be proven; evolution, the earth is billions of years old, life does not begin with conception, minorities are still oppressed, etc.
    Pray to God for forgiveness and redemption.  

  • warrant4

    Your Kool-Aid stains are showing . . .

    Here are a
    very few sources from a single web search:

    http://www.straight-talk.net/evolution/arguments.shtml

    http://www.icr.org/home/resources/resources_tracts_scientificcaseagainstevolution/

    http://www.changinglivesonline.org/evolution.html

    http://www.mbowden.surf3.net/evol.htm

     

    There are literally
    thousands more.

     

    There are
    thousands of educated people, unmoved by religious arguments, who argue,
    scientifically, against the current political mantra of evolution.

    Your
    education (and that of the other superstitious fanatics selling evolution as “fact”)
    failed to explain the scientific method or the mathematics behind creating a hypothesis
    and defending it.

    One of the
    basic understandings for the establishment of current scientific thought is the
    invariability of natural law. In other words, if evolution were a fact, it
    would be a constant state of development. This cannot be proven by fossil
    records or modern observation. There are a LOT of fossil records which indicate
    species were born and died without any evolutionary transition. The spurious
    claims, such as the increasing resistance to pesticides by certain insects, do
    not prove species change nor do they prove “evolution”. Such “changes” are
    natural much like human’s resistances to certain types of diseases changes over
    time but does not, in fact, change the species.

    Most of what
    we see today is that any species incapable of dealing with its changing
    environment (such as natural progressions of climate) do not modify themselves,
    they die out.

    Evolution is
    a THEORY; a hypothesis. By definition a hypothesis cannot be proven. It can be
    maintained as a usable theory until disproven. It is an interesting theory
    which may show how species “improve” over time; much like breeding thoroughbred
    race horses for pure speed. However, the species never becomes a new species
    with a different number of chromosomes or a radically different DNA. This is
    where the modern readers of Darwin go wrong.

    I find it an
    interesting and circular argument that those defending evolution with such
    irrational fury accuse those of us more skeptical about it as being
    unscientific.

     

    Just like
    the irrational fanaticism on Global Warming. The uneducated and unscientific do
    not understand the difference between a positive correlation and causal effect.

     

    Now, why is
    this at all important? You see, the reason for the fanatical defense of
    evolution is neither scientific nor religious. Science is still out on the
    subject. Many religions, even Christians, have accepted the possibility of
    evolution within the history presented in Genesis.

    It is purely
    political and THAT is why we all need to understand it.

    By teaching
    children they evolved from animals, we teach them they ARE animals. By removing
    any “religious” teaching in schools we remove the source and the reason for
    basic core morals within a societal group. We remove their humanity. Go to any
    public High School today and observe the behavior of the students. They have
    been taught they are nothing, mean nothing, have no higher calling, and all of
    this by educators saying they are concerned about student’s “self-esteem”.

    By creating
    and then injecting a purely secular and hedonistic philosophy into society and
    education, we have created the “entitlement” electorate who, if they vote at
    all, vote only for pure self-interest at the cost of the group. This constant
    (over decades now) of voting for “me” instead of the country, has placed us in
    the failed position we are in today.

     

    Christians
    know they are imperfect but strive towards perfection and still vote and speak
    based upon real principles, as do believers in other religions. 

    How do you
    vote?

    I am
    convicted and will accept death rather than deny my convictions. Are you so
    convinced? Would you die for a principle?
    No. . . . liberals and atheists like for other people to die for a principle while they believe in nothing, excusing their destructive natures and cowardice in the face of adversity with a shield of ignorance and intolerance.
    Or what did you call it? “Contempt before investigation?”

    So sad. I truly pity you. Unfortunately, its people like yourself contributing to the destruction of my country.

    P.S. Speaking of education. I have three degrees. (none of them in theology or anything religious).
    You?

    OK. I tried honest debate. You win on anger, irrational rhetoric, and a closed mind. As do most liberals and atheists.
    Must be a miserable existence for you.
    Have fun.
    Keep telling yourself that your opinions are laws of nature and beyond debate. Oh yeah . . isn’t that what you accuse Christians of doing?
    Enjoy the Kool-Aid.
