Well, America will exist but not as it does today. Perhaps not a bad thing. Obama is a Savage, venal political animal. Pure and simple. We are in deep trouble. As a pacifist, I pray for peace every day. But wonder if it will stay long. A judgment is coming, I fear. Sooner than later. On many fronts, economic, military, social -- and it will be way too late to correct course.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
