Beat that, National Enquirer!...

Have you ever noticed the psychics they have in those tabloid papers in the checkout line? The all have psychics predicting the Second Coming of John F. Kennedy or raising of Atlantis. When these extraordinary things don't happen, they say, "Oh, well, it'll happen next year. You just watch!"

And, so, it should come as no surprise that other organizations have taken that same method as their own. Remember last year when the Dept. of Homeland Security (insert crude comment here) and the CIA would tell us, "Another attack's coming this week! It's this week! You watch! It's coming!" And when it didn't, they say, "Um, next week! We meant next week! You just watch!"

Now, the World Markets Research Center in London has decided to take the same tactic as shown in this article.

Now, I'm not saying that the US will never be attacked again. Violence is bound to come about with the seeds we've been sowing. But I think it's awful indicative of a government that wants to keep us scared and, thus, something you should think about.

Get thinking.
