Happy New Year?

My husband still can't find a full-time job after a three -year search. Each day, more jobs are outsourced. Executives who stand for saving US jobs are ousted from their companies. I've seen it happen. But these self-aggrandizing politicians add to the mess by playing politics, and then using a photo-op to pat themselves on the back. As far as I'm concerned, the whole bunch of them, both Democrats and Republicans, are the most useless bunch of shils this country has ever produced.
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...
