Happy New Year?

Unfortunately the establishment is right about one thing. Most of the voting public cannot be fairly characterized as adults. They are still wrong, however, that they must be treated as children. That only prolongs the problem. Many will refuse to grow up until they have to. Some lessons can only be learned the hard way and some people only learn the hard way. I don't think Gingrich would have fared any better. Probably worse after putting his foot in his mouth too many times. Romney was the right man at the right time for the job. His potential employers are simply too childish and voted for the fantasy, the con man.

And they really are sheep. As we all are. How do you reach these people with the truth?
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...
