When no one hearsPosted Tuesday, July 15, 2008, at 2:43 PM
Does anyone else feel like no one's listening?
Obama and McCain are talking. But I've tuned them out for the time being because they're just pandering to potential voters. I'll start listening again nearer to election time, or if one says something drastic. Will they do much of what they promise? Probably not.
Gas prices keep rising. The blame's being placed on everyone from the oil industry to foreign countries to the actual consumers. No one's listening to the average American whose budget is being crunched.
If they'd listen, I'd go after a few greedy, big-money stockholders who are willing to destroy American corporations. Those individuals, or investment groups, forcing cuts in quality, consumer price increases beyond reason and/or job moves to cheap-labor foreign countries in the name of increased value for stockholders.
If you could have a direct audience with an individual or group -- and be promised direct results due to your discussion -- who would it be? And what would you ask?
