Predictions about Obama's First 100 Days in Office

A company is offering me up to $175 for correct predictions about Obama's first 100 days in office. This company has discovered that "predictions often turn out to be more accurate than surveys and polls" and that, "more accurate forecasts affect how political decisions are made." So, I decided to give it a shot, despite my total personal ignorance of world affairs! Here are the predictions I attempted today in order:

  • The Obama administration will not pass gun control legislation during the first 100 days. (Inverted Three of Cups.)
  • The President/Department of Transportation will not raise fuel economy standards to > 35mpg in the first 100 days. (Two of Pentacles.)
  • The Department of Energy will release a decision to move forward with FutureGen during Obama's first 100 days. (King of Cups.)
  • California will receive federal bailout funds during Obama's first 100 days. (Crystal ball indicated a k or C sound.)
  • Obama will put environmental and labour standards in trade agreements during his first 100 days. (Inverted Justice card.)
  • Obama will not eliminate all oil and gas tax loopholes in his first 100 days. (The Wheel card inverted.)
  • Russia will have a major terrorist attack during Obama's first 100 days. (Crystal ball showed "R.")
  • Obama will raise taxes on those who earn more than $250,000 per year in his first 100 days. (Inverted Four of Wands.)

Luckily, Mercury is now direct and the energy {even around the world} see to be cheering for him. One can always do better, when the momentum behind is positive, vs. swimming upstream for the ultimate goal.

Good work and congrats on the invite and service offered.
