    Can't believe no one is concerned about the widening gap between the rich and the other 95% of us.  But the top four or five concerns  look about right to me.  God bless the American people:  you can only fool us so much.  

    This Marriage Amendment thing will float about as well as Bush's ill-starred campaign to "privatize" social security.  Remember that one?  He spent all his political capital from the 04 election on that.  Now he"s broke--how do you borrow political capital?

      by the poor showing of environmental issues.  Remember, though, that respondents could only choose two issues.  I would be interested in seeing a similar poll by allowing 10, or having respondents rank from 1 to however many there are ...

      You know the saying a recession is when someone else loses their job and a depression is when u lose yours. Right now I'm out of work and 57 yrs. old. Get the picture.

        Sorry to hear that.  I'm 50--that picture is getting clearer and clearer to me.  I hope you find work, especially something you love that allows you to share your special gifts with a wide range of people.  God bless.

          Right now I just need a job. Self-fullment is the dream but food on my table is the reality.
