Previously Shawn also reciprocated with his own predictions. His predictions were also of the variety where he hoped they were wrong. I will use his scoring system:
Ones that have come to pass already will be marked with a “Y”, the ones which have clearly failed – or are on the verge of it – will be marked with a “N.” The ones where the jury remains out on will be marked with a “U.”
Congress will *not* make deep and permanent tax cuts.
Rating: Y – No question this is a yes, though we did get some piddly improvements in that area.
Congress will *not* make drug testing mandatory for all foreign born residents of this county.
Congress will *not* allow for oil drilling on US soil insofar as we can stop pretending to “need” foreign oil. (And thereby drop gas prices to below a dollar a gallon easily.)
Rating: Y – I feel confident that this one will not change by the end of the year.
The Supreme Court will *not* overturn Roe v. Wade
Rating: A sad Y for this one.
President Bush’s first Supreme Court nominee *will* be a Hispanic.
Rating: U – But could by a Y by the end of the year.
Catholic Apologetics International *will* end 2003 retaining a red light rating from Petersnet.
Rating: U – Have to wait for the end of the year here. I suspect by the end of the year Bob Sungenis will say that the universe revolves around him. Mr. Sungenis sometimes confuses himself with large gravitational objects since things seem like CAI seem to colaspse around him. Snide comments aside, would love be wrong here.
There will *not* be a successful accord worked out between the SSPX and Rome. (And at least one article on the 1988 consecrations *will* eminate from an influential cleric in the SSPX before the year is out which will be published either in the Angeles or one of the “encyclical letters” of their bishops, or district superiors.)
Rating: U moving daily towards a Y
The US Bishops will *not* hold a much-needed Plenary Council in 2003.
Rating: U – We will know by the end of the week on this one, but even if they decide on one it most likely won’t be this year.
Your rating Shawn is 4-0-4 with a possible 8-0-0 by years end, and by the way the Jesse Jackson prediction is a Y since Jessie threats to NASCAR ended with a $150,000
