    1).. Unemployment stays above 9%

    2).. Gasoline hits 5.00$ a gallon

    3).. Obama tries to move to the center but can't escape the far left

    Well... that's all I have so far....:dunno:

    if gasoline hits 5 bucks a gallon, i would guess we will have 20% unemployment.

    WHY THE HECK has gasoline gone up so much the past 2 months anyway?

    By Nov next year most of the newly elected TP congresspersons will be judged by their former supporters to not really be conservatives after all.


    Everything will still be Obama's fault.

    Unemployment will still be atound 10% minimum thru next year.

    We will continue to move jobs offshore.

    Many will say we have not cut taxes nor deregulated enough for them to work.

    Palin will continue to make megabucks for doing nothing productive.

    Umm most of the "liberals" In congress really do not like to mess with any large corporation for a few decades now.

    They will make noise but do nothing, or do something they cliam will help us but in reality helps the big corps. Like HCR?

    One thing seems obvious to me..

    If the government says, it's getting involved and is going to help.. the price goes up..
