8. I'm 44.
Depending on your age, that could make me a senior or just a kid. Either might be accurate at any given moment.

12. I'm 65 and just filed for bankruptcy. My welcome to Bushworld!
Had stellar credit rating all of my life until 2001! Tried to be a good American and supported capitalism on Wall Street. Made the wrong choices. Should have bought into pharmaceuticals, HMO's, Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, United Defense, Halliburton, and Big Oil.

Computers/high tech...what was I thinking?

14. I am sorry
We think during our lifetime we are taking care of everything then we get duped. I feel so bad for you.

If the shrub privitizies SS I'll grab a shopping cart from the corner store because I won't have anything,.

15. Yeah, I'm 66 and watched a goodly portion of my IRA get sucked down
the black hole of Bushie's economic "reforms" before I finally wised up and put the few remaining dollars in a money market fund that makes me about $6 a month. Meanwhile, my Medicare premiums go up 17% while my Soc Security goes up a whopping 2%, and my $18/month pension fund raise this year is totally blitzed by the increase in my medical premiums. I am grateful that I have insurance that I can afford (so far), but right now I'm living in fear that Bush's new tax "reforms" will cut my SS income. I am weak with rage. Yes, I worked hard all my life, tried to be that good American we all strive to be and wanted nothing more than a fairly stable retirement income, into which I'd paid for 40 some-odd years, and a little peace in my life. Thank you, Mr. Bush and all those who voted for you for robbing me and millions of others of the last great American dream. I am heartsick over what this means for my grandchildren. Mostly, I fear they will be marched off to one of the many wars Bush has planned for us.

God help us all!

17. Senior Citizens
Why would senior citizens vote for the shrub? I just don't understand. Why, just tell me why? I don't get it.
