Yoda’s Predictions For 2013 And Beyond
Yoda’s practical predictions to prepare you to navigate through the perils and take advantage of the opportunities of 2013. Yoda’s previous (published) threat condition forecasts have been within 84% ( +/- 4% ) accuracy. The Magnified View’s goals for the 2013 predictions are for the benefit of our valued 1 million plus visitors from 100+ countries. Our predictions are free and our purpose is to inform you of the current situation and warn you of what is coming around the corner. The predictions are for intellectually mature and emotionally secure viewers. Our guidelines and reports are not for those Wussie Mama’s Boy’s and helpless Daddy’s girls who choose to stick their heads in the quick sand.
It’s not for those denying reality and repressing and postponing taking appropriate action to protect themselves and their family.
The report is compiled by our staff of senior members from diverse disciplines who are strategically located in the USA, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It is a sophisticated computer generated model derived from professional comprehensive research.
2. ) Here’s To Your Health . . . Care

Wars Without End Bonus Topic 10a.) The Gun Run Number 6.) through 10a.) will be posted on February 1, 2013 The report is not candy-coated by Yoda as the administration and media does. It reveals a rough road for the next few years. No dinner times without dinner. 47+ million Americans are on food stamps or 1 out of every 6.5 of us are being fed by the government. There were 17 million in the year 2000 and only 1 out of 50 in the 1970s. As I write this, President Obama and his minions are publicly advertising on radio and by display ads on subways and buses, inviting more people to join the ranks of the dependent. The Nanny staters are bringing illegal aliens on to the Food Stamp rolls and other free stuff programs, encouraging more border jumping. The paradox is inviting more people into government dependence and control as opposed to assisting them out of poverty. Though no one I know would see anyone go hungry in America, as with all pseudo socialist and communist society, the rampant fraud with the entitlement (free stuff) programs is incalculable and colossal. Meanwhile, back at the White House, 70+ percent of the media are propagandizing that “things are getting a lot better”. What things? Who are they getting better for? Things are getting worse every day. The world’s economic engine is sputtering. Fasten your seat belts, put your tray tables in the upright locked position, place your oxygen mask over your right ear and take a read. This report will cover topics #1 through #5. We will publish #6 through #10 on 01/14/2013. Okay! FORWARD! That’s the dictum of the omnipotent, omniscient President Obama. Coincidentally it was Vladimir Lenin’s slogan in 1920 and the communist motto ever since. 1.) EMPLOYMENT – UNEMPLOYMENT – UNDER-EMPLOYMENT. Got work! Lamentably, the job picture will continue bleak. The current 7.7%? unemployment number is deceptive. When DoL ( Dep’t of Labor) G-6 report adds under-employed, part time wanting full time work and workers who have dropped off the rolls or are giving up, the real number is nominally 25% or Great Depression levels. It is an insult to logic that the government drops workers from the unemployment rolls when they receive their last unemployment check whether they have a job or not. The percentage of working age Americans with a job has been under 59% for 40 months in a row. Good jobs are diminishing at an alarming rate. Corporations will continue to downsize and outsource good jobs overseas to show a profit. Fortune 1000 company’s are planning massive layoffs in January. The United States has lost an average of approximately 50,000 manufacturing jobs a month since China entered The World Trade Organization in 2001. This trend is likely to continue. According to the Economic Policy Institute the United States is losing half a million jobs to China every single year. This does not include Mexico, India and other developing countries. Developing countries are the politically correct code words for third world hell hole countries used by the DoS (Department of State). Does this look like the short term success that President Obama brags about and his liberal media promotes? POP QUESTION: What do you call a big, white, SUV, parked on a side street that sleeps 6? ANSWER: A city street repair truck. Construction and trades jobs will continue to be taken over by legal and illegal Mexicans and OTMs (Other Than Mexicans). The border brothers currently hold 26%+ of all trade jobs throughout the country. The previously powerful, now merely noisy, trade unions do nothing to ameliorate this except collect monthly dues from their hapless members. Personal Note: I would do almost anything for a Hostess Twinkie but the union shut the company down, losing 18,000+ jobs. Government Work: High paying federal government gigs are growing and a good place to hide for the foreseeable future. Nearly 500,000 federal government employees now make at least $100,000 a year. In 2006, only 12% of all federal government workers made $100,000 or more per year. Now approximately 22% of all federal workers do. TIP: Avoid state, county and city jobs as the bureaucrats are broke and individual officials are hoping to be the last guy to turn the lights off at City Hall. TIP FOR TEACHERS: The Obamanation will suck you in to his base for votes then cut you off at the knees when you have served his purpose. Ask the teachers in Venezuela how they made out after their support for Chavez. Sorry! I forgot! Socialism will be different here. Retail, hospitality, restaurant and transportation jobs will degrade from low-paid full time to lower paid part time work as corporations take measures to avoid the usurous Obamacare taxes. Reduced hours for retail workers mean their already meager wages will be reduced by 10%. As I write this, an astounding one out of every 4 American workers earn $10.00 per hour or less. Do you want fries with that ? TIP: Retail and Hospitality Workers should choose companies that provide essential goods and services, not luxuries. TIP: Trucking, delivery and vehicle repair companies are good places to work in bad times. People and stuff need to move around and vehicles require maintenance and repair. TIP: If you are older than 25 and are still required to wear a nametag, you probably need career counseling. TIP: Medical and Healthcare related jobs are a good bet but will be corrupted as Obamacare comes on. Equipment, disposables, consumables manufacturers and pharmaceutical formulators are laying off now. Physicians, clinics, rehabilitation nursing homes and hospitals are holding their collective breaths believing Pelosi’s “We have to pass the bill before we find out what’s in it." Medical and healthcare are worthwhile employment, presuming you have the required training, degree and certifications. TIP: Veterinary, animal grooming, squeaky toy sales and other pet related gigs are good. Animal lovers will always spend their money on Fido, Fidette or psychotic Felines. TIP: Financial accounting, auditing, bookkeeping and bean counter jobs will continue to be in demand as there will be an increasing need for accountants to look off the back of the boat to tell us that we have run aground. When you total-up all working age Americans that do not have a job today it comes to more than 100 million. As companies continue in distress they will need more people to count things. TIP: If you have a modicum of math aptitude, find a company in the services sector with things to count. Small business owners are struggling with fewer staff. They are saddled with more work which had previously been done by others who were laid off. You didn’t build that . . . .Obama did! Many small businesses are closing while others are hoping to keep their doors open. Note: The number of jobs at new small businesses continue to decline. According to economist, Tim Kane, the following is the decline in the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans broken down by: · Bush, Sr. 11.3 · Clinton 11.2 · Bush, Jr 10.8 · Obama 7.8 Are you getting this? It’s still a good bet to work for Uncle Charlie in his garage presuming Aunt Martha will tell Uncle Charlie to hire you. TIP: Don’t annoy Uncle Charlie after he hires you. Don’t annoy Aunt Martha. . .especially Aunt Martha. Agricultural, Farming and Food Processing: The food, beverage and tobacco products industries are huge from growing products through processing to delivery to the stores. The Magnified View team is made up of urban business technology and intelligence professionals. We know very little about these occupations except that a lot of laid-off workers are going to live with Aunt Agnes on her farm in Minnesota. Personal Note: Yoda smokes cigarettes, drinks coffee and believes that broccoli is one of nature’s mistakes. He makes a point of always being in close proximity to a bar, restaurant, coffee shop and grocery store. Entrepreneurial Types: Leaving this job drear on a positive note, if you have computer skills, take a hard look at creating a small service-oriented internet business. TIP: 99% of "Work At Home on Your Computer" are confidence games. Avoid them! TIP: Go North young man. Young women too. Eh! Our Northern neighbor, Canada, is booming, especially in the energy sector. Engineers, welders, roughnecks, oil field, pipeline, transporation, logistics, hydroelectric trades and much more. Pay is over US$100,000/year. Canadians are interviewing in select U.S. cities In grim conclusion, the economy can’t pull out of the graveyard spiral until companies and small businesses have a need to hire staff. We don’t see any motivation on the horizon for companies to hire except for the possibility of a big Middle East regional or larger war. TIP: If you have a job, hold on to it with your eyelashes and fingernails. It’s not the time to look for greener pastures and be the employee with the lowest tenure in a new job. TIP: Back to school and additional training have their downside. Don’t go back to school to learn carriage lamp manufacturing management or buggy whip repair. Avoid training in a skill base that is being laid-off now or working for a degree in a field that is not hiring or that you hate. If you’re making the effort, take this opportunity to work towards something that you like. TIP: Be personable in the interview. Bosses hire people that are likeable and that they like.

2.) HERE’S TO YOUR HEALTH. . . . . CARE! The megalomaniacal Obamanation healthcare is an unmitigated catastrophe that will screw-up the world’s finest healthcare for years to come. I am utterly baffled that people fail to look at all the countries where national health care has been implemented. It is a disaster. “National healthcare is great . . .as long as you don’t’ get sick.” Said a luminary surgeon friend of mine. Oh! I forgot! Obama says it will be different here. That’s what Castro and Chavez said about introducing socialism/communism as had all their despotic predecessors. The lure of free stuff is irresistable to Obama’s base. TIP: Find and befriend a family physician you have a rapport with. It is vital for communications. A good physician friend can keep you out of trouble despite the Obamanation’s disaster. 3.) PERSONAL FINANCE AND INVESTMENTS: Respected conservative and liberal economists alike are predicting a stock market crash in the 3rd or 4th quarter of next year. The brokers who rough-up your money call this a “ market adjustment”. Yoda calls it, “losing your money”. Conservatives will blame Obama and liberals will blame Bush. · If you are not in the market this is clearly not the time to enter it. · Gold and silver will dramatically increase as the dollar weakens and the market crashes. TIP: Silver is an excellent buy for those whose budget won’t afford gold. · Surreal Estate: “There will never be anymore land” is the mantra of the guys and gals in the ridiculous powder blue blazers flogging real estate. “So what?" says Yoda. Foreclosures will continue and banks will lower prices. The lowered price will result in more home owners over-the-cliff (underwater). Approximately 25 million American adults are living with their parents. Do not buy your dream house if there is a good chance you or your spouse will be laid off. TIP: If you suddenly see a bunch of people in ridiculous blue blazers in your neighborhood, it’s a good time to call Aunt Agnes on her farm in Minnesota. TIP: It takes about 24 months from the first missed mortgage payment to throw you out on the street. Many near desparate people are defaulting and banking the mortgage payments to have a kicker before they go to work for Uncle Charlie or go live with Aunt Agnes on the farm in Minnesota. 4.) TAXING TAXES: Here a tax, there a tax, everywhere a tax tax. Our closet communist, comrade Obama will continue to raise taxes past the breaking point for us working stiffs. Obamacare’s Happy New Year’s day, 2013, will bring an astounding one trillion dollar tax increase. This increase has nothing to do with the “Fiscal Cliff” nonsense. The shovel-ready Obamacare brings 20 new or increased taxes of which 5 will ring in the new year. The Congressional Budget Office projects a trillion dollar increase in the next nine years. The Obama worshipers still believe that this is free healthcare. He will continue to raise taxes for additional entitlements (free stuff) pandering to his base of 47% of the population who don’t pay taxes. According to the Tax Policy Center, going over the “cliff” means: · 88 percent of U.S. taxpayers will have an increase of taxes rising by an average of $3,500 a year. · Taxes would jump $2,400 on average for families with incomes of $50,000 to $75,000. People will have less money to spend so businesses will generate less revenue and employ fewer workers. How fun! eg: By taking more tax money from the wealthy (5 1/2% for indivuals earning $400,000.00/year or more and for families earning $450,000.00/year or more), it will take more money out of the economy and put it in the hands of the government. This means that you and I will have minimum disposable income. Restaurants, movies, other entertainment venues will close like the Taliban was in Arizona. The bottom line, if the fat cat bureaucrats let the economy fall off the cliff, it will cost you on average, an additional $3,700 for this year’s (2012) taxes. That means your hard earned $308 bucks a month will go to free stuff for Crip’s gang night basketball, Muslim mosque refurbishment, protection of owls, 7,000 new IRS agents to chase you around and other worthwhile liberal causes. TIP: Home entertainment like TV channel movies, video games, parties at home will grow. TIP: Please create a family budget if you don’t already have one. A budget shouldn’t punish you, it should provide a tool for you to get the things you really need or want. 5.) PRIME TIME CRIME: Escalating crime threat in 2013. Crime is down from sea to shining sea. . . RIGHT? That’s what the media, Holder of "Fast and Furious" fame and our commander in chief tell us. . . WRONG! Crimes to person and property are skyrocketing all over the land paralleling the continuing recession as it always has in tough times. Coppers and deputies are being laid off in small, medium and large-sized cities. The bad guys read about this in the newspapers and have a grand time. City bureaucrats routinely provide falsified data to the FBI, who publish the National Crime Statistics. The National Crime Stats are where the media gets their data. TIP: It’s nigh time to upgrade your personal, family, home and workplace security. QUESTION: Did you know that commando Obama led the Seal team that killed Bin Ladin in Pakistan? . . . I saw on NBC News. If I see it on NBC News, it has to be news. . . .Kidding! TIP: Your best home alarm is a dog or a sound actuated barking recording that sounds like Cujo. Overworked coppers are responding to priority calls and may take awhile to get to your home. Like car alarms, in the majority, home alarms are false alarms that cause complacency. TIP: A hidden "cutout Switch" is an effective car – truck – RV – boat – anti-theft device. It’s a tiny pin switch hidden somewhere on the car which needs to be in the on position to start the vehicle – costs about $50.00 at your local audio shop. The cutout switch is better than The Club, which slows the bad guys down but you can use it as an impact weapon. Discover how the bureaucrats gaff the crime statistics by scrolling down this site to “Yoda’s Little Known Tactics To Avoid Being A Target". We are all going FORWARD facing at least four more years of the new normal of having less money in our pockets. Obama’s “redistribution of wealth” (That’s an Obama and three stooges quote, Marx-Lenin Engles). “Obama is bringing you an equal distribution of poverty” Says Yoda. Please don’t waste your time wondering if we could be inaccurate or dead wrong. Rather, think about what if we are right and how any one category may trigger a domino effect in other topics. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. TO BE CONTINUED. . . . The Magnified View will publish categories # 6 through # 10 on 02/01/2013. We are postponing the publishing date to February 1, 2013 in order to wait for some important information regarding the potential for war.
