As each year turns to the next I try to right out what events and trends I think will take place in the year to come. As I say each time, this is neither astrology nor an attempt at prophecy. I am simply making an educated guess at what I think will happen. The purpose is actually for my own amusement. Part of it is hubris, as I am addicted to saying “I told you so.” But it is harmless fun, unless you are one of those people that gets mad at the weatherman if it rains on your wedding day.
- I wish that this year upcoming will be filled with a mix of pretty good, and some not as good—but I highly doubt that. I believe (and don’t at all wish) that this year will be one of the worst years that anyone in this country truly remembers. I tend to be a political pessimist, but this goes deeper than that.
