    I'm sure I'm not the only one that notices when something happens there are a lot of people that say "I knew that was going to happen", or some other form of saying we all knew it was coming. Funny thing is, despite these fortune telling abilities, at least 9 out of 10 times nobody bothers saying anything about it before it happens.

    Well, here's your chance. What do you think is going to happen in the calendar year of 2006? Politics, sports, entertainment, the world at large. If it's so obvious it's going to happen, let the rest of us in on it.

    I'm going to save mine for a bit. First, I want to see how much interest there is in it. Second, time snuck up on me and I gotta go.

    Have fun with it.

    Unless there are sudden changes, the Republicans are going to keep or extend their lead in both houses of Congress. Not because of what they've done, but because of the Democratic leadership.

    Something really, really bad is going to happen to someone really, really important.

    Someone will get banned from USMB.

    It will rain in the PNW.

    We'll have Congressional elections.

    We will celebrate the US's 230th birthday.

    And the SEAHAWKS will win the Super Bowl!

    USC will beat Texas in the Rose Bowl and win their third National Championship in a row. Even though I went to UCLA, I will pull for USC against the Longhorns. Mess with Texas!

    If there is a God, then Duke will not win the NCAA basketball title.

    The White Sox will not repeat as World Series champions. Sorry Beantown, it will be the Bronx Bombers.

    Alito will be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

    Deficits will continue

    The Dems will go too far and the filibuster rule will be changed

    Independent movie studios will continue taking market share from the mainstream Hollywood movie studios

    The MSM will continue its decline

    The first of the baby boomers retire, which renews the political discussion on pension reform and privatizing Social Security

    The first troop withdrawals from Iraq

    Saddam Hussein will be convicted of crimes against humanity and executed

    The Israelis take out the Iranian nuke program

    Pope Benedict ruffles some feathers on gay marriage and abortion (so what else is new?)

    Peter Jackson starts work on "The Hobbit"

    Linux continues taking market share from Microsoft

    The French finally wise up and start fighting the War on Terror.

    The United States considers leaving the United Nations and setting up an independent alliance of freedom loving countries.

    And from the "don't I wish!!!!!" department

    I finally get a dry basement

    Bill Clinton does commercials either for Viagra, Cialis or else, a cigar company

    Hillary Clinton gets religion, admits to committing crimes, goes to jail, then swears an oath of obedience, poverty and chastity and becomes a nun. She eventually fills in for Mother Angelica on EWTN

    Kim Jong Il is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve (Stalin, Reagan, and Groucho Marx), they warn him of his fate should he keep acting the part of the world's biggest asshole. He quits politics and becomes the Dalai Lama's valet.
