The prognosticating preacher -or- The obvious oracle

All-around idiot Pat Robertson usually doesn't make the list on the "Ann Coulter" principle (i.e. we don't want to let one or two people take all the spots), but his annual predictions are always a hoot. Last year he predicted a nuclear attack and incidents of terrorism with possibly millions of deaths. He wasn't wrong as such; it's just that God, in His infinite mercy, spared us. Apparently God changed his mind at the last minute. "Sorry, Pat! Just keeping you on your toes!"

This year, Robertson weighs in with some shockers, predicting a recession, a stock market crash and rising oil prices. Watch out Ric Romero, Robertson's after your job! [NOTWD]

Post a Comment

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
