What Won't Happen This Year
With a lot of hysteria going on I am putting up a list of things that won't happen this year.
The US Dollar will not become worthless. It will still be accepted for goods and services.
There will not be hyper-inflation. Yes, there will be inflation, but it won't be Weimar Germany style. More like 4%.
The Federal Reserve will not be disbanded. A central bank of some flavor will still be around long after all our grandchildren are dead of old age.
We will not go back to a precious metals standard. That was getting creaky in the 1860's and was totally unworkable by the end of WWI.
We will not run out of oil. It will be more or less expensive, but it will be available.
We will not stop using coal.
Global Warming will not cause the sea level to rise any meaurable degree.
California will not have The Big One. If it does have a quake, it will not fall into the sea, the plate is moving north, not west.
Ron Paul will not get higher elective office. (This is a permanent thing, not just this year.)
We will not have a civil war in this country.
The Yellowstone super-volcano will not errupt.
We will not be hit by a planet-wrecker class meteor.
Obama is not a foreign agent.
There have always been scary times and bad events. But the sun keeps on rising and the breweries keep on making good beer and we will survive. Compared to The Great Depression, this is a walk in the park.
