Dear Reader, I have always thought that I had special prophetic powers. You know, like Nostradamus. You don’t believe me?
I recently came across an old post that I made right here in the Realm of the Lone Grey Squirrel. The post entitled “Have an Ox-picious Year” was written in 2009 and in it, the Lone Grey Squirrel gave predictions for the next 12 years according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
You can click on the link above to read the whole post but I just want to draw your attention to the prediction that I made for 2016.
2016 (Year of the Monkey) – After two terms under President Obama, the political mood swings and unfortunately a monkey is returned as President. In world news, U.N. observers will declare that there was wide-spread monkey business during elections in a South American banana republic.
Hmmmm……….. looking at the current Republican nominations race in the USA and the crazy televised debates amongst the candidates, one just has to think that we might be eerily close to seeing that prediction come true. What do you think?
I know politics can be a very volatile and contentious topic and it is not my intention to offend anyone. However, I have to be true to my own beliefs and apparently after taking another one of those quizzes that float about on the internet and Facebook, I have been told by the Internet Gods that my beliefs are most closely aligned to Bernie Sanders.
So now that you know, allow me to share the following meme which would clearly appeal to anyone who thinks like Bernie Sanders. Anyway, I think it is funny and possibly prophetic as well. Hope you agree…..
As an bonus feature (cause the squirrel is feeling generous), here is a tribute to the “Monkey Man” by the great Amy Winehouse.
