It’s once again time for the obligatory “predictions” for the upcoming year. With the world being a crazier and more chaotic place than ever, such an exercise is inherently masochistic. However, being a good sport, I’ll peek into my own crystal ball and attempt to decipher my vision for the future.
In keeping with tradition, I must first review my predictions for 2010 (here’s where the masochism comes into play). As I attempt to “explain” how and why the world did not unfold as I predicted one year ago, two themes come into play: in one respect, I simply overestimated the speed at which events would progress in 2010; while in the other, I grossly underestimated the human capacity for stupidity.More Here..
I expected civil unrest in the U.S. in 2010 (as did the U.S. government when it illegally deployed a unit of the U.S. Army on American soil) due to the widespread recognition that the “U.S. economic recovery” was nothing but a propaganda hoax. Instead, placid American sheep went through all of this year still acquiescing to the delusion that the U.S. economy is “growing”.
Part of the reason I expected the non-existent U.S. “recovery” to be acknowledged is that I considered this the only way that the U.S. government would be able to justify throwing “more than $1 trillion” at the U.S. economy, in attempting to reanimate this corpse. I was wrong here. While the Obama regime threw $800 billion at the U.S. economy (in extending tax-cuts for fat cats), and Bernanke threw another $600 billion at the economy (via more “QE”), these two colossal frauds did so while managing to avoid admitting that all of their rhetoric about a “U.S. economic recovery” was nothing but shameless lies.
