Ho, ho ho. It’s December again and you know what that means. Time for my prognostications for the coming year. Yes, here’s the news before it’s news. And the best part…it’s free. So without further ado:
Jan 2019: Illegal immigrants from Latin America finally gain entrance to the U.S. by building an even higher wall and jumping over President Trump’s wall. The U.S. retaliates with an even higher wall. The immigrants do the same. By the end of 2019, the border walls become tallest manmade structures in the world.
Feb 2019: Newly re-installed Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, doubles down on her statement that Republican policies will directly result in the deaths of millions and millions of Americans. However, in an effort to reach across the aisle, she agrees to compromise on policy parts that will only kill conservative voters.
Mar 2019: Hillary Clinton declares she will seek the Presidency in 2020 once again. Boldly declaring that after two previous peaceful attempts, this time she will use violence and brute force to attain the office. Her new slogan will be “It takes a pillage.”
April 2019: Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia drags into its third year. Stating that “he will leave no Roger Stone unturned,” he further states that he expects the investigation to reach its conclusion around the year 2048 or if he dies, whichever comes first.
May 2019: Last year’s investigation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh blows up again. An impeachment trial is set as Sen Diane Feinstein reveals she has evidence gathered from a 53 year-old woman who claims, while they were in kindergarten together, Kavanaugh once said to her, “I’ll show you mine, if you’ll show me yours.”
June 2019: With the second vote counting debacle in Florida in the last 20 years fresh on the minds of Americans, The Florida Board of Elections orders new state-of-the-art voting machines for all Florida precincts for the 2020 election. Manufactured by a company called “Every Vote Counts, Comrade” home-based in Moscow, they are guaranteed to be accurate down to the last chad.
July 2019: Riots in Paris and all over France go into their 8th month. Even though President Macron has rescinded his additional 25 cent “carbon tax,” which was added to the already $7+ cost of a gallon of gas, protesters, seemingly addicted to looting businesses and burning overturned police cars, demand he go one step further and say “Oncle!”
August 2019: Having already won a Nobel prize and an Oscar for his efforts touting climate change, Al Gore narrowly misses the hat trick when he comes in second place for a Pulitzer prize in journalism. Critics attribute his shortfall to the very ending of his climate treatise. In it, he taints his otherwise perfect exposition by suggesting all climate change deniers be burned at the stake as blasphemers. A day later, scientists estimate that doing so would release over 100 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, causing an extinction event.
September 2019: President Trump finally gets a handle on all the “crap coming out from the White House” due to damaging leaks. It turns out to be just a faulty gasket in the toilet bowl in the bathroom of the Lincoln bedroom.
October 2019: President Trump tries to calm down all the criticism over his “revolving door” staff and cabinet appointments by installing a new dartboard in the oval office with a much larger bulls-eye.
November 2019: California finally secedes from the Union. The new country of Caliphonia promptly declares war on the U.S. However, their newly sworn-in President soon sends our President Trump a message asking; “Can we just dispense with the fighting part and go straight to the part where you send us money to rebuild?”
December 2019: After all the brouhaha last year over certain Christmas jingles being offensive, a compromise is reached by the FCC. Starting December 1st, the offensive Christmas jingles will only be played on odd-numbered days. On even-numbered days the more genteel rap music, with their soothing rape and police killing lyrics, will be the fare.
The world seems so crazy these days that half these prophesies may well come true !
I am laughing so hard that I really do have tears in my eyes!! Truly fabulous sense of humor only somewhat diminished by grains of truth sprinkled about in what you wrote! Keep up the good work!
So glad I could bring some mirth into your life, Janet. Hey, if we didn’t laugh about it we’d be spending our day crying, n’est ce pas?
Love your list which must come true because it is no crazier than what is going on right now!
Excellent point, Linda!
You certainly ‘hit the bull’s eye’ again Al! When you ‘smell a rat’ or ‘think someone is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg’, you don’t hesitate to ‘rub their fur the wrong way’.
(I’m sure you have an opinion on PETA’s recent appeal to remove Animal Idioms from our language.)
Thanks, Margy and yes, I’m aware of the latest with Peta. Now that every human on earth is offended by something, it’s about time we realized that poor animals get offended too! I hope everyone adopts Peta’s new terminology because there’s always more than one way to skin a cat.
I think you’ll be nearly perfect in your predictions. I say nearly, because to be practically perfect would mean you’d be Mary Poppins and nobody is Mary Poppins except Mary Poppins who is the merriest of all Marys and the most practically perfect person on the planet.
Now that we got that out of the way, what issues do you see as being the biggest for organizing marches? Because, as God is my witness, we women NEED a reason to leave our families, don all nature of inappropriate attire, use those giant neon poster boards and bright colored markers we love so much, travel great distances, amass as one, and march like no one has ever marched before. I need to know how to properly prepare.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge. It is appreciated by all.

Good to know you are so socially aware, Patricia. I think your next great cause should be making me rich. I can see it now, there you are leading a massive women’s march on the U.S Mint with the slogan “Send The Money to Poor Old Al.” and with all the media attention you would draw you could throw in a couple of signs saying “While you’re at it, follow his blog too.” Good luck with this, and thanks.
P.S. I wish I was like Mary Poppins. I’d loved to fly around using only an umbrella.
LOL! I got some real belly laughs out of these.
Glad you did, Dor. Just trying to inject a bit of humor into a really sad state of affairs.
You could be a political advisor, my Bro…go on, you could…..<3
I would, Jane, but I don’t care that much about jail.
Excellent prophecies Al. American politicians need gurus like you 😉
I live to serve, Ralph.
