In any case, 2009 could very well be the year that even Moody's can no longer lie about the U.S. Treasury, and it could downgrade the credit rating to something more realistic. After all, even Moody's must realize it's losing credibility each and every day it claims the Treasury has a triple-A credit rating. If this continues, investors will eventually realize Moody's can't be trusted, and the company's entire business could collapse sort of like Arthur Anderson in the wake of its own accounting scandal.

Should the U.S. Treasury rating be reduced, that's a sign to head for the hills, because it means the U.S. debt will, from that point forward, suffer from escalating compounded debt. Imagine owing $100,000 on credit cards and paying 25% of your monthly take-home pay just to meet the interest payments on what you owe the credit card companies, and then suddenly the credit card companies double the interest rate on you. Your monthly payments skyrocket. And since you can't afford to pay any more than you've already been paying, you start taking out cash advances on those cards, even while you're losing ground on the interest payments.

Now you're paying interest on the interest of the debt, and the debt continues to multiply in a hellish geometric pattern until you're so deep in debt that every penny you earn is spent just to keep the creditors away, and you have nothing live on: Nothing for food, medicine, clothing or even a house. Eventually, you'll have to do exactly what the U.S. Treasury will do: Declare itself bankrupt, abandon the dollar and tell the creditors it will no longer make payments at all. And that will be the beginning of the end of the U.S. government.

That day is coming. It probably won't happen in 2009, but certainly within the next 20 years if something drastic doesn't change with
U.S. government spending.

Prediction #10 - Psychiatric doctors will be caught up in yet more scandals

Confidence in prediction: 85%

Throughout 2009, yet more psychiatric doctors will find themselves caught up in financial scandals for failing to report their financial ties to Big Pharma.

This year has already seen stories about Dr. Joseph Biederman ( and other psychiatric doctors being caught with their hand in the drug money cookie jar. Amazingly, none of these corrupt doctors have yet been fired from their jobs! (Which just goes to show you that the industry remains incapable of policing itself.)

In 2009, we'll see at least one major breaking scandal involving drug money and psychiatric doctors, and it will add to the growing consensus that the psych drug industry is based almost entirely on fraud and corruption.

Prediction #11 - Big Pharma will push for mandatory medication policies, starting with mental health 

The push for mandatory medication of the population will gain momentum in 2009, thanks to Big Pharma efforts to criminalize citizens who say no to medication. They'll focus on mental health first by pushing for mandatory mental health screening programs that will force children, expectant mothers and adults to be medicated with expensive, mind-altering pharmaceuticals.

Those who refuse such mandatory medication efforts will either be sent to mental institutions or forcibly medicated essentially at gunpoint (with the threat of arrest). Those with children will be threatened with having their children taken away by C.P.S.

Related prediction: Although this may not happen in 2009, sooner or later some citizen is going to use firearms to protect themselves from medical tyranny. You can expect to see a case where a mom or dad trying to protect their children from vaccines or chemotherapy ends up shooting medical personnel or law enforcement authorities out of self defense. The case will be all over the tabloids, and the jury will find the defendant guilty of murder (because jury members are all medicated, too, and violence is no way to solve this problem...)

Prediction #12 - The American Dental Association will abandon mercury

Confidence in prediction: 40% in 2009, 70% by 2012

The day is coming, and I think 2009 might be the year for the American Dental Association to finally abandon mercury fillings (which are deceptively called "silver fillings" by the way).
