Well, it's here. 2012. What the Mayans (and other ancient cultures) have been warning us about. Will anything come from all of those predictions? I am assuming not.
Now with that said, I think that that over the last 30 - 50 years, we have created our own "2012" here in the US of A. Kicking the can down the road, saying that we are cutting expenses with "future savings". That's like me telling my wife that I cut $100,000 out of our expenses for this year because I won't buy a Maserati that I wasn't planning on buying anyway.
Oh well, something inside me feels that this will be the year. I hope and pray not. I want all the protests to go away, I wish that all of the regulations and such that are keeping folks from good paying jobs would be removed and I wish that this time next year we can all look back and laugh.
