A Prophet is Born
I’ve made a lot of predictions in the past. I remember downloading my copy of XP RC2 back in 2001 and thinking “Gee, a stable operating system from Microsoft that supports all my hardware? How can they ever top that?” I told several people at the time that Microsoft would have a terrible time launching a Windows XP replacement because anything they changed would be hated.
Now years later, it’s hard to claim a personal victory about this prediction since it wasn’t saved at archive.org for all the world to verify. So from now on when I predict a future event I will post it here so we can check up in the future and see if I’m right. For now, I’m giving myself a 100% prophecy score. Here’s a political prediction to get things started:
This election season, we have seen Democrats try to downplay their support of the 2003 Iraq invasion. I predict that in 2012, Republican politicials will attempt to distance themselves from their vote in favor of Bush’s bailout plan. By that time, the majority of American’s will agree that it was not a solution, was mismanaged, and was a waste of taxpayer money (kinda like the Iraq war).
