    All of these predictions were pulled, whole cloth, from my posterior region:

    STOCKS: will go higher than ever, breaking through traditional ceilings thanks to the Bernank and his QEFinity/CTRL+P

    GOLD: gold will break $2000/oz by the end of May and stay somewhere within $200 of that mark for most of the year

    SILVER: will go to $40/oz

    ARAB SPRING: Syria (Assad) will fall later in the year. It may likely bring the world to the brink of war. Saudi Arabia will face an Arab spring uprising, but the House of Saud will not fall. If they do, oil hits $200bbl.

    AMERICAN WARS: Barry will involve us (unilaterally) in two more conflicts outside of our borders and possibly one within… He will use drone strikes more than 130 times. The lefties will not notice even one of them, conveniently.

    OTHER WARS: Syria to fall. China/Japan will clash, no war to result, yet…

    INFLATION: asset price inflation will continue as a natural consequence of printing money with reckless abandon, though nominal inflation will be shown with fudged numbers to remain fairly stable

    DEFLATION: not yet

    GUN CONTROL: The house will summarily drop all gun control legislation like it was shot with a scary black military-looking rifle. The Senate will be powerless to do anything. Barry will issue an executive order demanding something… How it works out? I don’t know.

    UNINTENDED RESULTS OF GUN CONTROL: depends upon which way & how-hard they push… anywhere from nothing to all-out armed insurrection.

    TERRORISM (DOMESTIC): no major attacks

    MAJOR GEOPOLITICAL SHIFTS: Greece/Spain to leave the EU

    RANDOM PREDICTION: the Hoover Dam will break?

    STOCKS: Right off that bat I have to make a tough call. As long as the Fed keeps pumping out the cash, the market will continue to rise. Since there isn’t much choice but to keep pumping cash, it will continue to rise. That is my prediction. Since the stock market always does exactly the opposite of what I expect it to do, look for a major crash in 2013.

    GOLD: Same thing as gold. I expect it to rise, therefore, it will fall.

    SILVER: Silver and gold
    Ev’ryone wishes
    For silver and gold
    How do you measure
    It’s worth?
    Just by the pleasure it
    Gives here on Earth.

    In other words, I don’t have a clue. Sorry to be flippant but it is a tough call. I am going with inflation and an increase in the price of silver because that is the plan.

    ARAB SPRING: Never was a spring and there never will be. At the end of the year, Assad will no longer be quaking on his throne. We will at that point discover that the new boss in Syria is no better than the old boss.

    AMERICAN WARS: The year will end with thousands of US soldiers in Afghanistan with one hand tied to their balls genitals. I don’t see any other dogs of war being released. Obama sure as hell isn’t going to engage Iran.

    OTHER WARS: I’d watch Japan. I don’t know that they are going to war but this is the year they are going to start talking about getting a real military. I am 100% that at the end of 2013 there still be an ongoing brushfire war between Israel and the Palis. Let’s watch and see how desperate for a distraction the Argentinian leadership becomes.

    INFLATION: It will continue to grow, unless…

    DEFLATION: We fall off of the other side, banks tighten controls and the money supply dries up. I am still betting on the former but the latter isn’t impossible. Either way, it is a giant shit sandwich for lunch.

    GUN CONTROL: Lots of smoke, not much fire. A few stupid states might get tough. A few bills will languish in Congress. Maybe a band aid here or there. If they do anything, it will be to make a run at magazines that hold more than ten rounds.

    UNINTENDED RESULTS OF GUN CONTROL: Guns and ammo will be expensive and hard to find.

    TERRORISM (DOMESTIC): More moonbats trying to relive the days of the Weather Underground will be arrested and ignored by the MSM.

    MAJOR GEOPOLITICAL SHIFTS: Might be a big change in Venezuela after Chavez starts pining for the fjords. Something is up in Japan. The post-war years ended in 2012.

    RANDOM PREDICTION: The Democrats will talk about banning stuff. They will talk about banning guns, banning high capacity magazines, banning violent video games, banning violent lyrics, banning coal mining, banning the Hardee’s Thickburger, banning the Big Gulp, banning doctors who take cash, banning fur coats, banning hydraulic fracking, banning genetic engineered foods, banning chicken coops, banning Happy Meals, banning skinny fashion models, banning rodeos, banning Nerf guns, banning thermostats that go higher than 70 degrees, banning incandescent light bulbs, banning school vouchers, banning plastic grocery bags, banning SUVs, banning high fructose corn syrup, banning trans fats, banning Christmas trees in public places, banning spanking and banning Rush Limbaugh.

    At no point will they suggest banning, or even slightly limiting, abortion. They are, after all, the party of acceptance and inclusion.

    :-) Brilliant.

    STOCKS: MAY continue to go up.
    But the dollar is worthless, so what does it matter.

    GOLD: Will go higher, & I still can’t afford to buy any.
    No matter how much George Nory implores me to.

    SILVER: Up. But I have precious little of that either.
    See above.

    ARAB SPRING: I figure Assad will split the country. He of course will
    maintain control of the areas that the USSR, er, I
    mean “Russians” need to keep a port on the Med.

    AMERICAN WARS: Meh, Barry’s a pussy. And everyone knows it.

    OTHER WARS: Frighteningly high possibility here.

    INFLATION: OK, I ‘ll admit it. I’m just not smart enough to hazard a
    guess.

    DEFLATION: Same as above.

    GUN CONTROL: Here in Kommiefornia, all bets are off. Rest of the
    Nation? Hopefully the House will have more balls
    than they displayed tonight.

    UNINTENDED RESULTS OF GUN CONTROL: Sales of 6″ PVC pipe
    will have a good year.

    TERRORISM (DOMESTIC): Isn’t that what they say we are?

    MAJOR GEOPOLITICAL SHIFTS: Israel eliminates Tehran.

    RANDOM PREDICTION: Yellowstone blows & it doesn’t matter
    anyway. (I gotta stop listening to C2C)
