Please keep in mind that the citizens of Greece STILL don't see that they're in trouble. Of course, one big difference is that there are a couple of fiscally prudent countries that can bail out Greece, at least for a time. There's no one on earth that can and will help America.

As the Left knows, it's hard for people to give up goodies purchased with OPM. They may be idiots, but the Left encourages their idiocy. (And let's not even talk about government schools!)

They don't see it because they don't want to. They may have brains, but the gray cells are on a narrow road with no place to go. God almighty, people can be such idiots!
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...
