In this thread, you post any and all Left Wing predictions that have been proven wrong... keep posting as they happen. - The tens of thousands of American casualties in both Iraq wars - The "imminent" indictment of Karl Rove -- In the 1960s, Paul Ehrlich and others predicted tens of millions of people around the world would soon starve to death as a result of overpopulation. It didn't happen, and global fertility rates are now so low (and still falling steadily), that some demographers forecast a decline in world population beginning as soon as 2050. -- In the 1970s, Americans were warned an "energy crisis" meant the world would soon run out of oil. Three decades later, no one predicts exhaustion of the petroleum supply --? ever. -- In the 1980s, liberals said evil warmonger Ronald Reagan was on the verge of provoking World War III, with "nuclear winter" wreaking havoc on the planet as a result of the impending thermonuclear holocaust. Didn't happen. The Soviet Union folded like a cheap suit. -- In the 1990s, liberals screamed that poor children would starve to death because of welfare reform and Republicans' "draconian" cuts in social programs. Fast forward to 2005: experts now warn of an obesity epidemic among poor children. -- After the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, experts rushed to warn Americans of the dangers of right-wing militias --? soon, hordes of gun-toting wackos would goose-step down Main Street. Never happened. The supposedly large and growing "militia movement" turned out to be a handful of kooks in camouflage.
