Note: Tonight is the 2nd Presidential Debate, at 7pm EST (6pm CST). It's the town meeting format, which should be interesting because it's the people asking the questions.
We'll be "live-Tweeting" it, like we did the 1st Presidential Debate, and the VP Debate.
It's what some of us call a fun time...yes, it's a bit geeky. We're okay with that.

Our comments (via Facebook):
"Obama's stimulus spending has helped, but Republicans argue that government aid helps keep people in poverty."Top Reasons the Walton Family and Walmart are NOT “Job Creators”
You know what REALLY helps people stay in poverty? Sending [manufacturing] jobs to China and keeping low-paying service jobs [in America], low-paying.
If the country doesn't have manufacturing, services jobs are the primary jobs available for the people. Not everybody can be, or has the money, for example, to be a lawyer, a doctor, or go to trade school. (With student tuition debt so high in this country, and potential cuts to higher - education tuition assistance under Romney, that's not likely to change.)
People with University educations are working in low-paying service jobs.
This is a sick cycle.
