Predictions gone wrong

We should be interested that so many experts were completely wrong in their thinking:

The 10 worst predictions for 2008

this was at number 1:

“If [Hillary Clinton] gets a race against John Edwards and Barack Obama, she’s going to be the nominee. Gore is the only threat to her, then. … Barack Obama is not going to beat Hillary Clinton in a single Democratic primary. I’ll predict that right now.” —William Kristol, Fox News Sunday, Dec. 17, 2006

But mostly because it shows that while there are certain rules to life and definite rhythms much is unpredictable and the unexpected (and sometimes unexplainable) happens. Yet, we constantly have people trying to bully us into accepting their point of view. Regardless of the topic, this list should encourage every thinking American to do their best to be an independent thinker. If something is so evidently true, then challenging it should only confirm it more clearly. However in our culture today there are numerous "politically correct" opinions, beliefs, facts, etc. that are presented with such confidence and certainty that a reasonable person wouldn't want to be skeptical. But just as the above list shows, well-informed people can be completely wrong. Just because they might be able to convince a significant amount of others to agree with them doesn't change that fact.

As for my predictions, study my thought process, and the overall results. I'm as good as I can be which is better than anyone else I know online!
