Predictions For 2016

I have been doing predictions for the past several years, with the exception of last year.  I usually do better than the talking heads or writers who are paid to follow the news and make predictions.  In 2014, I had about a 64% accuracy rate:
And unlike the talking heads or writers, I won't just a couple of predictions, I will make at least 30.
