Iran will be attacked in 2012 but only by Israel. The US backs out at the very last second.

New Zealand will have the largest earthquake yet, close to 9.0.

Putin will be assasinated. Probably an inside job.

China will have a severe drought and thousands of chinese will die of starvation.

Japan will become unlivable from the radiation and will move to Australia. Hondas will be built in NSW.

Bigfoot will finally be captured.

Miami and the Keys will sink after a huge hurricane.

Cuba will become the 51st state. Puerto Rico will become the 52nd.

Mexico's central government will be executed by a cabal of drug traffickers and the US will have to send in the Marines.

Canada will bitch and complain about everything.

John Shaw will purchase another firearm. (Couldn't resist, man-couldn't resist!)

I dont have a prediction, but I am thinking about starting a project in 2012 where for the entire year I write down every single tax I pay. Beginning the 1'st and going until the end of the year. Could be interesting, could be tedious also.

Here are some predictions by libertarian State Rep. Steve Vaillancourt

12 For 12--2012 Predictions Revealed

I'll post the non-NH ones here, click on the link to read the NH ones

Quote
1.  A—Which Republican will win the Iowa caucuses on January 3 and by how much?   Ron Paul by three or four points over Mitt Romney and I’m beginning to think Rick Perry will pass the Eft for third.

Quote
4.  A—What will the national unemployment rate be at the time of the November election?  8.5 percent.

     B—What will the growth rate be at the time of the November election?  2.0 percent

Quote
6.  With a 63 seat gain in 2010, Republicans took control of the United States House of Representatives by a 242-193 margin.  How many seats will Republicans gain or lose in November?  Losses will be minimal, in the range of six seats which means Republicans would remain in control, 236-199.

Quote
8.  After the 2010 election, Democrats controlled the United States Senate 53-47 (including independents Lieberman and Sanders).  Keep in mind that Democrats must defend 23 of the 33 seats in play in 2012, and seven incumbent Democrats, including Nebraska’s Ben Nelson (announced this week), are retiring.  How many seats will Republicans gain or lose in November?

Republicans will net a gain of seven seats to take control 54-46.  North Dakota and Nebraska are sure to turn.  Missouri, Montana, Virginia, and Wisconsin will most likely go Republican.  That’s six.   Florida, New Mexico, Ohio, and yes…even Hawaii  (very popular former Republican governor Linda Lingle is running and only Obama strength at the top of the ticket will save the seat for Democrats) are possibilities.  Scott Brown will withstand a challenge from Margaret Warren to hold Massachusetts for Republicans (and Nevada will stay in GOP hands as well).

Quote
11.  Who will win the Presidency and by approximately what percentage of the popular vote and with how many electoral votes?   (Remember 270 electoral votes are needed to win).  If you want to play with individual states, there’s an interactive map at the americanresearchgroup.com web site.  Check it out; it’s been recalibrated to reflect the change in electoral votes due to new census numbers.  See below.

Mitt Romney beats Barack Obama by about the same margin Obama beat McCain four years ago, six points in the popular vote and with 300-310 electoral votes (it came out at 308 when I used the ARG calculation).  Romney will add swing states of Florida and Ohio (as well as retaking Virginia and North Carolina for Republicans).  He’ll win New Hampshire by about the same margin as nationwide.  The blue state most likely to go red will be Michigan where Romney’s father once served as governor. I also have him turning Iowa and Wisconsin red, but those I would rate as toss-ups.

Someone will troll someone else on the FTL BBS.

Sometime during the year I may masturbate.

The US dollar will lose more of it's value.

Alex Jones mutters the phrase, "New world order."

Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin do a porno.
