    my prediction for 2010 echoes Justmary’s…Obama will continue to suck.

    I’ll add another: the Dems will get even SCREECHIER! (if that’s possible)

    They will SCREECH as to how the Tea Party people as sooooooooo scary, and everyone is soooooooooo mean to poor Obammy.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

    This thread has nowhere to go now but completely off track, so I predict that by the end of the night I think Obama is smart.

    JM- Considering the amount of alcohol you will need to make Obama smart, I predict #20 only comes true if you are not cooking.

    What I think the year will bring:

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg will retire from the Supreme Court, and is replaced by either Elena Kagan or Diane Wood.

    Various events will vindicate yet again my decision last year to change my party registration from Republican to independent: John McCain will survive his primary challenge, Mitch McConnell will remain leader of the Senate Republicans, and

    David Cameron will become prime minister of the U.K., thereby giving false hope to what little of the right remains in that country.

    The cause of so-called campaign-finance reform will suffer a significant, but not fatal, defeat in the United States Supreme Court. A victory for liberty, but not of the dance-in-the-streets kind.

    Illegal immigrants will continue to flood the country, thereby pulling us ever closer to the inevitable day that the GOP becomes a national political irrelevancy.

    Liberal Republicans will continue to insist that turning left on amnesty for illegal immigrants will draw Hispanics to become Republican, ignoring (as they always ignore) two inconvenient facts: (1) that didn’t work when we tried it in 1986, leaving no reason to think it’ll work in the future; and (2) Hispanics, like blacks, have for generations been casting votes based on economic issues (where they’re very liberal) and not based on social issues (where they’re conservative).

    Stupidity will still be the ultimate power in our politics.

    And demonstrating the ubiquity of stupidity, my post will be seen to contain multiple embarrassing typos and incomplete spots where I forgot to resume writing.

    No worries, Alan. Most of us are too drunk to notice any typos right now. I am only on glass 1 of champagne, and I already made sure there were no spelling errors….so you are good there. lol

    Illegals will indeed continue to flood in. They are a slave class which the dems are all too happy to import. The dems love slavery in any form that is legal. Welfare is their #1 though.

    2010 prediction: I will continue to harden our family’s hunker down site! And if we don’t take back at least one House of Congress in 2010, then our Hunker Down site will be made ever MORE secure. Jus’ sayin’.

    Happy New Year…next year is 2010…the year AFTER may be Year Zero. 🙂

    Heh. Thanks, Mary. I myself get drunk on chocolate. Your choice is healthier, though.

    Oh, another prediction–for speaking out on behalf of our sovereignty, Lord Christopher Monckton will be more widely known and appreciated in 2010 than now… but less so than he deserves.

    I predict that in 2010 Robert Byrd’s US Senate seate will become vacant (either by death, disability or resignation).

    Speaker Pelosi is demoted as Republicans retake control of US House of Representatives with a net gain of more than 60.

    Gee… Alan… I must be drunk because I didn’t spot one… but not drunk enough to think Obama is smart… dare I pop a second bottle… boy those who support the ZERO must be totally wasted…

    so for 2010 I predict that on 9/12 about 3 million people will decent upon DC to protest the government… and the MSM will ignore the story except to saw tourism is up in DC for the the summer…

    I predict that Fox News viewership will increase by another 15% — Glenn Beck will surpass BOR in ratings, and the Congress will begin working on the silencing talk radio with re-introduction of the (un)Fairness Doctrine.

    More newspapers will cease printing a paper copy and ZERO will try to bail out the newspapers including the NYT.

    I predict that the media will continue to be bias and parrot the WH line that Bush is to blame.

    My prediction and prayer for 2010 is that more artists seize on the rebellious anti-government sentiment catalyzed by the leftist administration and we begin to see more and deeper quality reflections of it.

    justrand – Thanks for the welcome, but I must confess that I lurk here often and have posted from time to time. It’s encouraging that there are so many sites full of similar sentiment!

    Nonetheless, your greeting is appreciated!

    The whole “Rand” philosophy is what linked me here in the first place, as I’d been searching for Rand-related sites that weren’t quite as heavy-handed when dealing with religion.

  59. 2010 January 1 6:48 am
    justrand permalink

    Bumr50, I don’t embrace all of Ayn Rand’s philosophies…but in ‘Atlas Shrugged’ she so presaged our current situation that it was a natural basis for this and other sites. As I wrote in my original essay (still linked at the top of the site if you click “About”) we need each of us to Be John Galt in our own way in order to retain the liberties we still have, and regain those we’ve lost. The creeping intrusion by the government into every area of our lives has become a tidal wave, and one that Barack Obama seems intent on surfing!

  60. 2010 January 1 7:10 am
    Bumr50 permalink


    My father gave me my first copy of ‘Atlas Shrugged’ almost five full years before I read it (app. three years ago.)

    The similarities to our current situation are positively uncanny.

    I’ve since passed my copy on to someone who’s struggling with addiction, but a reader clearly bothered by what’s going on to our nation. I’m hoping that it enlightens them in the same way that it enlightened me.

    I received a new copy for Christmas, but will continue to pass them along if I keep encountering young people confused about how statist solutions affect our way of life, the best and most fair in recorded history.

    I’ve seen many a young person suckered by the false ‘intellect’ of Bill Maher types who are clever enough to disguise their disgust for capitalism with seemingly witty banter.

    The culture war needs to be addressed by more than the moralizing Pat Buchanans of the world. Glenn Beck is a good start, but just the tip of a much needed iceberg to sink HMS Socialistic.

    Bumr50, my weekly “Cost of Freedom” post (to be re-named “The Price of Freedom” in 2010) goes up in a couple minutes. I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on it.

    We had a party last night and friends of ours asked if they could bring their next door neighbors. Hey, the more the merrier is my motto.

    Anyway, I start talking to the husband to get to know him and he tells me that Atlas Shrugged was required reading for his 3 older children.

    Turns out he is a small business owner.

    Predictions for 2010 on 1/1/2010:

    HC has an 80/20 percentage of passing. I’m giving the 20% because of the house, in that they might not be able to reconcile the Senate Bill with their members.

    Amnesty and cap & trade are dead for 2010.

    Commercial real estate falls off the edge, and there is another round of home foreclosures by April.

    The unemployment rate hits 11%

    Obama’s numbers tank even more, into the low 40’s. And, like JM said it only makes him testier —> aka more defensive and thin-skinned.

    Janet N. resigns.

    Israel does a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

    The current Iranian govt. is overthrown.

    We have a terrorist attack that does not fail, which makes people even more insecure about the Obama Administration.

    There is a GOP/tea party landslide in November, resulting in at least the House changing hands…perhaps even the Senate.

    More newspapers will fail as the internet thrives.

    Finally I think the uneasiness and lack of prosperity will pull the family unit and friends closer. People will also turn more to religion or some higher power, as events outside of themselves are more out of their control.

    Here in California there will be a 7. or higher earthquake on the west coast. Somewhere along the San Andreas Fault is where I’m predicting the epicenter will be.

    I don’t think 2010 will fun. However, it feels like a corrective year where mindsets and changes in the culture will start to take place.

    We’ll see…….

    Alan, you could be right! I just didn’t want to get too gloom and doomy in my predictions. As it was, there were few hearts and flowers in looking at 2010.
