“One of the things I think deals with our economy, but also this spending that some of these companies have had in the past. In your newspaper you had an article about what the small guy could do (to save money). … What are they going to do to get them on an even ground with me?”

“I would say the economy. They’re skirting a little bit around the issue, and they haven’t laid down any concrete plans as to what they would do to make sure we don’t go into a recession or something of that nature.”

“I’d like to hear more specifics on how they would stimulate the economy and what specific plan they have to go ahead and do that. It just seems like they throw out all these ideas - both parties have, actually - of tentative plans, but I want to hear some concrete ideas.”

“We’ve been blind-sided by all these economic developments and crises that didn’t seem to be planned on. What kind of crises do they see might arise? And what are they going to do about that, such as food shortage, energy costs during the winter? What kind of things are they doing to prevent an even bigger hole opening up under us?”

This question is for both candidates: Are your skulls filled with extriment? And if so, what kind of extriment would it be? Human, dog or some other species extriment that is plentiful and easy to find?

Ask winger wonderboy Karl Rove who said once, "There is now a secure retirement plan for Republican operatives," and the reason he said that was because they've been milking our Treasury for 8 years via contracts to their pals, by not funding our government (because they don't like it), by diverting billions to oil rich nations, by legislating welfare for the wealthiest, and just plan stealing it (corruption).

Now that you've pi$$ed away billions on Iraq and bailed out the greedy bankers (after all we would'nt want anyone to miss out on their trip to the Mediterranian this year) what are you doing to guarantee that Social Security will be there for everyone else ?

So, the financial industry has lost a lot of money. I would like to know where the heck it all went. Someone is hooping it up with all your money.
