    I don't want to be Buzz Killington, so I'll just keep my expectations to myself.

    it will be worse IMHO since we have a clown for a president who no longer has to worry about re-election.

    I'm just going to go with it being "very frustrating."

    It's going to be like any other year, idiots in the government not doing what they were elected to do. Will we be surprised?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: 2013 expectations

    i'm hoping for good things this year, and i'm cautiously optimistic. i might have to change jobs later this year, and i hate that. i try to keep reminding myself that i'm going to end up where i'm supposed to. on the bright side : every new year that finds me in good health is pretty much priceless.

    My daughter doesn't crash the car as she learns how to drive.
    Our campus visits don't result in my having a stroke
    She does well on her ACT
    And we can figure out where to go this year on vacation.

    I put "much worse", as we've already had four years of "pretty much the same" moving into "slightly worse". The real question is, how much longer can the Left keep pinning this mounting disaster on the Right?

    Re: 2013 expectations

    My expectation is that it will be pretty much the same or slightly worse. I do not expect a proper recovery in Europe as Europe hasn't finished the spending cuts or the internal devaluation. I believe Europe will be in recession during the whole 2013. However, Europe may get more healthy during the end of 2013.

    United States may go back into recession due to the fiscal cliff or large spending cuts. Certainly, the US is going to slow down. Asia, South America and Australia will do fine. Africa will stay poor so no change there. Middle east will decline due to the political conflicts.

    For my life, I expect 2013 to be quite tough because it my most important year at university in New Zealand, but I am more confident than last year.
