    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 sh!tload of stock and is buying or bought sh!tload 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..

    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...

    I'm with you on that one. But what is bothersome is of reports of Iran having cells in this country responding if they are attacked by Israel.

    I suspect that our layers of security in this country will have some ideas about it.. if not we have just shyt away a boatload of money... but what else is new.

    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.

    Obama will discover Romney is a Muslim, Ryan is a covert member
    of the Muslim Brotherhood and the news will be broken on InfoWars.:eek:

    Wait, why would he pose as a mormon? You'd think his cover would be closer to the vote-getting mainstream... maybe some kind of evangelical protestant?

    My wife is pregnant.


    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.

    Too obvious.

    The other advantage is that when he gets caught saying the Shihadeh, he can just say it's a Mormon thing and almost everyone would believe him.

    I still think , as I posted in another thread that China will act militarily against Japan and island that it claims as its own......
    The Presidential response will be the "October Surprise" whatever it turns out to be......

    I think Israel will attack Iran this week, they don't fool around when they see danger coming.

    I was taught at a very early age if you get into an argument and see a fight coming hit the other guy right in the face FIRST AND FAST if you don't your in trouble.

    Israel won't slobber, they will hit FIRST AND FAST with or without Jug Ears help, if they don't Iran will hit them.
