in PREDICTIONS 2009 - 2012


***These Predictions will cover now until the end of 2010! – Posted October 9, 2008, 8:00 pm.CDT.

This Report has been Private for several months but I’ve decided to open it to my Friends list and is intended to Warn people that are either connected to Law Enforcement or in Public Service about our future Social dysfunction.

My intention is NOT to scare people but to Educate them about the dire situation our Economy is in and how it will affect some people sooner or later…

Everything listed already happens on a daily basis but it’s going to accelerate or be more violent in the coming months and year..

Not everyone will be affected by these events but you’ll hear about some of them in the news.

I’m reporting these things so you can be aware of some hazzards so you can protect yourself.. This Blog represents a worse case scenario and I plan to add more later..

I  don’t see the Economy picking back up until Sometime during the Summer of 2009.  The economy will take a downturn during March/April again in the coming months of 2009.  I would prepare for a long year with many problems overlapping or cascading from one sector of our economy to the other… ***UPDATE March 1, 2009 Headlines: ‘Dow Below 6,800 – Lowest Close Since 1997’ …
