Is Gold money? If so, why can't we print it, like we do US dollars, and if we do print 40 billion dollars, then does that not make our dollars worth significantly less?

I have a question for both candidates: if asked to respond to an inquiry without including a disquisition on how inept/misguided/ignorant/dangerous/stupid your opponent is--would you both be stricken dumb?

President Obama, You said "If you like your dr. and insurance, you will be able to keep them" Please tell all the senior citizens that are in a medicare advantage program that we will not lose our medicare coverage under this plan. Secondly, my family has worked a beef cattle ranch for over 40 years on inherited property that was valued at about $1,000,00. If the inheritance tax is increased as you have proposed, my sons would have to pay a 55% tax on property that we have already paid taxes on(which would mean they would have to sell part of the property) Please tell me why you think our hard work should be penalized this much.

Actually, Martin, it was the Department of Labor and the Department of Defense who tried to dissuade contractors from complying with the WARN Act, which requires employers who are facing massive layoffs (based on percentages of total workforce) to forewarn their employees that they may be losing their incomes. I haven't seen anything that says the Government will pay for legal defenses, but I do know that major contractors like Lockheed-Martin and BAE Systems have refused to assume the ostritch pose. (DOL and DoD are worried about the impact on the forthcoming election **and** the holiday sales forecast, which has retailers rubbing their palms in delight.) I would advise everyone who might be affected to be very conservative about their spending, this Christmas and Chanukah, because whether sequestration (which involves indiscriminate across-the-board cuts of almost all programs, regardless of merit) or the Congressionally-initiated cutback needed to keep us from going over the cliff occurs, it's going to happen. Have an old-fashioned holiday, one present each, and throw an after-season party to celebrate, if we aren't all on the unemployment lines by then.

Question for Obama, Do you think preparing for debates, campaigning heavily in your traveling, t.v. appearances kept you from making sure Sept. 11 attack and killing at our Benghazi embassy would not happen?
