In my psychic predictions for December, I see a murky month filled with ambiguity, fear, and uncertainty. I see those struggling with the woes of unemployment reentering the job market with newfound resolve. I foresee that many perceive this as a negative event; however, this is not the case. Nonetheless, many cannot see past the negative impact that this renewed interest in gainful employment has on the headline number. In fact, the negative spin put on the unemployment rate causes significant social, psychological, and political turmoil, in the near term.
I also see continuing geopolitical instability stirring the cauldron of unrest, in global markets. I foresee commodity markets reacting to the turmoil in kind. I sense that energy prices rise as a direct result of this unrest putting even more strain on the sputtering global economy.
In addition, despite the loss of a few supporters due to attrition, the political stalemate over budgetary issues continues this month. Without a firm resolution in sight, I foresee that anxiety and fear escalates on a grand scale.
I feel the spirit of the American people held captive by the self-serving philosophical and ideological differences of lawmakers. Feelings of anger, frustration, and resentment abound as our expectations of freedom remain trapped in a cage of political grand standing and finger pointing.
As we approach an unprecedented outcome. I sense a series of waveforms rippling and magnifying global concern. If left unchecked these ripples cascade into an overwhelming global panic resulting in a multilateral vote of “no confidence” for our political system as a whole.
However, I sense that the need for a resolution before year’s end sways even the most steadfast lawmakers to compromise. As the full scope of this compromise becomes apparent the fear and anxiety associated with the implementation of draconian budgetary measures begins to subside. I sense that as a nation we still lose face globally as we once again prove our inability to compromise without dramatic theatrics.
Many still feel powerless, however, as many see the hope of the American dream sidelined for the next generation. However, many breathe a sigh of relief as the modicum of austerity required for the people of our great nation in the proposal far outweighs the unthinkable alternative already on the table.
Overall, I see an eventful month highlighted with varying degrees of negative sentiment. I sense that we resign ourselves to the new “America” where the rich stay rich and the poor get poorer. The incentive for innovation stifled by increasing tax rates, we face a nationwide period of stagflation and mediocrity.
Entering into the New Year, we learn to accept our lot in life. Watching as the great eagle of American hopes, dreams, and aspirations’ remains caged in the dirty grime filled cage of corporate greed and consumer irresponsibility our global economies binged on over the past twenty years.
