It's The End Of The World

The prophet Pat Robertson has spoken, 2008 will be the year of upheavals for the United States and the world.

We have much to look forward too. The stock market will crash in 2009 and no later then 2010. The dollar will continue its downward spiral this year and America will suffer a recession. As if that isn’t plenty to worry about, violence and chaos will come to dominate the world. The worst part is that oil will top out at $150 a barrel.

Now a wise man once said “a prophecy is a guess that comes true, when it doesn’t it’s a metaphor.”

This forecast requires no divine inspiration in any matter. Any competent journalist knows that violence is a growth industry. War continues to rage across the world, with eight major conflicts being fought as of this writing.

Across the country, the economy is already on the cusp of a recession. The banking industry has lost $200 billion due to the housing bust. Manufacturing is already down 2% in the last quarter with sales declining in hardware, furniture, glass, and wood products. Automobile sales continue to struggle, due in part to oil reaching nearly $100 a barrel. It is entirely plausible that the price per barrel could exceed $100 this year. The prospect of a stock market crash isn’t without merit, but still remote.

We all need to be going postal to pay any serious attention to Mr. Robertson.
