Macron picks a Conservative PM.  The left and socialists are completely defeated in France.  But will still argue that the left has any power in Western Politics.  I guess we'll see how the socialists/progressives do in Germany.

Wtf...look at you spiking that football again and again.

You didn't acknowledge macrons win but you acknowledge his appointments.

You take an obvious amount of pleasure in confirmation bias. I just wish you were half as smart as you are an antagonist.

Not at all. But Macron wasn't part of the left. He ran as an outsider and a centrist. His opponent was the daughter of a nazi sympathizer.

My point/prediction was that "leftist" leaders would continue to lose in western countries in favor of "conservative" candidates. A centrist outsider was elected and just appointed a "conservative" PM.

It's a loss for progressive politics no matter how you cut it. I expect a similar outcome in Germany. Granted, she's already "conservative", but I'll bet she backs away from her open door refugee policies as we get closer to election. If she loses to the socialist, I'll be wrong.

No matter which way you cut it, "liberal" leaders are losing in all of the world powers.

Nice point about NFL ratings declining Mitchjw.

I'd say:
1. Chiefs win Super Bowl, Go Andy!
2. Tom Brady begins his final season next fall.
3. I would like to say "Walking Dead begins its final season next fall" but i think they go 1 more.
4. Guns does release an original song ona Soundtrack/movie, and 1 more just gets released virally or on FB, YT.
5. An attack occurs overseas which causes the US to consider going to war, but Trump holds back after public outcry about 'Not wanting to goto war again"
6. Making a Murderer 2 is a pretty big binge show, and Netflix releases a very popular original series which goes viral, moreso than their previous ones. I'd even guess sci-fi.
7. A very popular celebrity dies. Not as many as last year, but this celebrity will be big.
8. I'm wrong on most of these. Except for the Guns thing. That'll come true!

lol. Remarkably I was wrong on all 8.


(Re; celebrity I was picturing Taylor, Bruno Mars, Brad Pitt level). Interesting reading some of these, some you guys called a few pretty well.

Oh wait, I did get #3 right. It should end tho, imho. And #5, NK was close, but I didn't consider that 'an attack'.

GNR will let us down even more in 2017. Sure the shows will be cool but they will still play the fucking Seeker and Axl will refuse to release ANYTHING except ugly Tshirts and Jackets.

Trump will have ups and downs in year one.

Stock Market will stay stagnant and just say in that 19,500-20,500 range.

US Economy will continue to improve

US home sales will slow a bit with Interest rate hikes.  But will be a short term slow down.

I was right on Guns
I was right on Trump
I was way wrong on the Stock Market
I was right on the Economy
I was right on Home Sales to a degree

1.) "conservative" leaders will be elected in France and Germany, concluding the demise of modern progressive ideology.

2.) Trump will let Ryan and McConnell handle the fine print, won't be impeached, and the country will be better off at the end of 2017 then at the start (using employment participation of age eligible workers as the benchmark)

3.) Winds of winter will be released, but late in the year, certainly not before the show starts again.

4.) Guns will conclude their cash in tour and Slash and Axl will amicably go their separate ways. No album.

5.) Guardians will be the most successful marvel
Movie, but Thor will be the best from story. Wonder Woman will do well, but the D.C. Universe will continue to not met expectations. Star Wars will be the dominant movie, but will be more rehashed material.

6.) my favorite book series, the dark tower, will be a huge flop

7.) VR will be the new fad in 2017, ushering in the biggest technological acceptance since the iPhone


4/7 ain’t bad. Fuck George RR Martin
