Happy New Year
Oh I am predicting that I am gonna do something completely stupid in 2017...what can I say I am kinda predictable
Actually I have nothing.
I'm not sure... it's 2017 where I am and nothing remotely exciting has happened yet... i was hoping something futuristic like cars would start flying or there'd be androids to take my place at work
Oh I so thought that would be happening when 2000 hit...I was so disappointed
I know, and I've seen young guys who thought they owned flying cars trying to take off on the freeway and the nice policeman trying to catch up to tell them they got the wrong model
Yea they also tell that to southern belles with a lead foot too
Some of us Northern Belles were doing 95 on the PA Turnpike coming home today. :)
Glad to know I ain't alone :)
Not by a longshot. :) No matter how fast I'm going, someone is always flying by me.
I kinda learned my lesson 100+ only on a race track. Reckless driving charge has been a major pain.
I'm it was. I've been lucky - net got a moving violation. Sometimes, when there's no traffic and the road is straight, I don't even realize I'm going that fast and then all of a sudden, I look and go, "Whoa."
Well if they ask how fast you were going if you get caught don't say "obviously not fast enough"
For sure. :)
It's still coming. :)
I think you're right :) but people don't seem too enthused with auto drive cars so I think it'll be years before they'd feel confident with flying ones. I'd be happy with a hover board from back to the future :)
Ok I'll throw a couple predictions out for better or Worse. February: the cease fire in Syria has continued. The final details being hashed out by Russia. America stays out of it. Russia breaks most ties with Iran as a concessionary measure.
March: China decides to test the new administration by conducting wide spread military exercises in the South China Sea. America responds with a show of force that shocks the world.
June: actual work begins on the wall on the US Southern border.
September: it appears that the economy is growing at a 4.5% rate in the US. The Fed not only raises interest rates, Inflation rears its ugly head because of all the money printed over the last eight years. Knocks the rate back down to a modest 3%.
I do also predict that Marine Le Pen will win the French Presidency. If there is even one more terrorist attack in France before the election, it's pretty much a sure bet.
Everyone out there, have a safe Happy New Years and get home safe.
I predict new and exciting levels of butthurt, never before realized, will be demonstrated by the birkenstock sandal wearing class.
Happy New Year.
Trump and Putin become really close friends and this upsets Melania...:)
I mean it really upsets Melania. She threatens d i v o r c e. :)
January will be a bad month for stocks.
Wanna bet? I'm thinking January 31 ends at 20,100 for the Dow.
It's possible, but my information indicates the likely trend in the short term is lower. Since Trump is expected to cut taxes, a lot of investors have been waiting until 2017 to take profits, ie sell their stocks to lock in their gains. That tells me that the markets will likely open with a lot of sellers. Question is, will they step in with the "plunge protection team" and prop it up, or will they just let it drop? The final year of Obama's administration is now over, whatever happens when the markets open will be logged under 2017. Since Obama seems to be pursuing a scorched earth policy right now - hanging Israel out to dry at the UN, expelling Russia's diplomats - God knows what else is coming in the next few weeks. Allowing the markets to crash by not continuing to prop them up seems like a possibility. After all, most of the public is unaware of the manipulation, and the news outlets that have been reporting on it have been smeared as "fake news". I sense a set up.
Lol!! And you are probably right.
Lots of more of the same (for the most part). Though at some point someone will really piss off Trump and that will be interesting to see how he reacts, it could be funny, or could be scary, or could be plain out ugly... my guess is someone in the media (but some other leader might do it too).
Hope the US has a very happy 2017
