My Psychic Predictions for 2008

If all of this stuff doesn't happen, I'll resign my membership in the Psychic Friends Network:

Mitt Romney will be the Republican presidential nominee.

Barack Obama will be the Democratic presidential nominee, and will be elected President.

Pro football will have a major "athletes taking performance-enhancing drugs" scandal.

Oil prices will go over $100 per barrel at least twice.

Troop levels in Iraq will go down up until the November elections. Immediately after the elections, another troop surge will be proposed.

Around 200,000 people in Massachusetts will still not have health insurance at the end of 2008 (down from 500,000 without health insurance in 2006).

The increase in the minimum wage will mean fewer teenagers working during the summer of 2008.

Inflation-adjusted "total compensation" (wages plus benefits) will be up more than 1% for all income brackets over the year.

And last, and definitely least:

The New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl.

It doesn't count unless it CLOSES above $100 per barrel:

"Crude-oil futures hit $100 a barrel for the first time in a single floor trade at 12:09 p.m. EST in the New York Mercantile Exchange's benchmark February contract, before pulling back to settle at $99.56 a barrel, up $3.58."

Well yeah Gavin.i hope you quit..i didnt have to be a psychic but i knew that the Giants would win!
nobody ever thought that the patriots didnt have a strong running game and it would cost them in the end. You cant keep winning when you cant run the ball and this is from me, i predicted this right after the Giant beat the packers!

Yes, my career as a psychic is over. Finished, even before it really began.

Hmmm, I saw a tree branch in my back yard yesterday that looked like it might make a good dowsing rod...
