Well, President Obama won re-election. Not much positive to say about that.
Things I now expect in our future:
The economy will continue to just sputter along or suffer some additional setbacks. - The press will talk up the "new normal" angle. They will treat 7% to 8% unemployment as doing well as more people slip into poverty.
As ObamaCare goes into effect, more doctors will choose to leave the profession while fewer young people choose to become doctors. Just as other nations have done, we will import a larger and larger number of doctors from overseas in an attempt fill the gap. Will they be just as good?
Health care costs will increase and the Dems/Legacy Media will blame "greedy" insurance companies and doctors, not their own regulations. Their solution will be to demand even greater government intrusion into the health care market. Repeat until dead.
Wait times will increase.
Fewer new medical devices.
Fewer new medicines.
Overall quality of care will decrease.
Costs will go up.
It saddens me to think of all those around the world that will suffer and die needlessly because new drugs and treatments that could have saved them will not exist.
Update - Additional prediction:
Iran will obtain nuclear weapons unless stopped by Israel. The current sanctions hurt Iran, but the Iranian leaders have concluded that they will gain far more from the possession of nuclear arms than they will lose via those sanctions. I don't think the Obama administration, nor any of the European powers, will go beyond sanctions to stop Iran. At this point, Israel may be the only nation with the determination to stop them, but it might lack the ability to do so, short of some large-scale attack. Possibly an EMP strike. The consequences of which are terrible to contemplate for both the Iranian people and for Israel.
Iran is already a serious problem. A nuclear Iran would be a nightmare. - Iran might attack Israel at first opportunity, or it might use the nukes to serve as a shield for other aggressive action in the region. If the latter happens, expect a rapid arms race in the middle east to counter the Iranian nuclear threat.
