Since its probably going to be a rainy slow news weekend.Post what you think the October surprise is going to be.Dosen't have to be political but some outside event that will effect the POTUS race.
My OS prediction is. Israel attacks Iran either in Sept or Oct.And it will have a immediate impact in this country and not just politically.
I was reading where George Soros just dumped a *****load of stock and is buying or bought *****load of gold. And that there has been a insiders doing the same thing.Getting ready for a European finacial collapse brought on by such a conflict.
I also read where certain certain US federal agencys like the department of social security has bought a ton of ammo.
I also heard some talking heads say that Israel does want to force the US to take a stand and will not wait until after but before the election to see the US respond from its leadership.

If you read it, it is a standard RFP for their agents.. probably happens every so often, to replenish their supply.
Social Security Comments..
As we said in a recent post, our office has criminal investigators, or special agents, who are responsible for investigating violations of the laws that govern SSA’s programs. Currently, about 295 special agents and supervisory special agents work in 66 offices across the United States. These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests.
Our investigators are similar to your State or local police officers. They use traditional investigative techniques, and they are armed when on official duty.
Media reports expressed concerns over the type of ammunition ordered. In fact, this type of ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies. OIG’s special agents use this ammunition during their mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions, to ensure agent and public safety. Additionally, the ammunition our agents use is the same type used at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
What I never understood, why are there separate investigative divisions for different agencies.. i.e. I know a woman who is an investigator for Veteran's Affairs.. we have so many investigative agencies and probably no one talks to each other. Would seem to be a whole lot more efficient if we have one investigative force in the government, with different divisions within.
Back to the October surprise, nothing I hope.. and nothing to do with Iran/Israel.. as what we do not need now is another unfunded war...

Here's a theory that should give some comfort to Romneyites:
If you think he only seems to be running a disorganized campaign, the October Surprise could be that he has in fact been eschewing millions of bucks of write-downs since 2008, knowing that he's a professional candidate at this point.
In that case, the whole concern about his taxes is precisely the same rope-a-dope that Obama capitalized on vis a vis the birthers.
He could release tax forms in October that showed that he payed a hefty 25% rate... pretty much like a high middle-class earner who made his money through labor rather than ownership. That would dominate headlines and make his opposite numbers look bad toward the end game.
I don't think that's likely the case; but I do think it's a contender for the "October Surprise" move.
After all, whatever it is has to be unlikely, by definition.
At first I expected someone to say that Romney is really a woman, but I see we have a Ryan is a homosexual prediction already, which is close enough.
An October surprise...hmmmm. I have a whole list of things that would surprise me, but how about I get serious and offer something I expect that would be a surprise to others.
A third Palestinian intifada. I might be off by a couple-few months, but that's my chip down on the table.
Now tell anyone I about this and a 6'4" guy in black will show up at your door.
We get what we deserve.
------------------ “On a day when they could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson..they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon.”
