Your Thoughts: The State of the Union

In your opinion, what is the current state of the union?

As I type this, President Obama is minutes away from his State of the Union address.  Telling Congress how things are going is part of the president's job, according to the Constitution.  But today's post is about your opinion:  What do you think is the state of the union?  Vote in our Quick Poll, leave us a comment, and look for your feedback on our show!

Fix the Economy!

Rethink, redesign, rebuild: the theme of this year's World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.  The business and political leaders meeting there are going to have a ton of ideas about how to deal with the world's economic situation.  But we want to hear yours!  Whether you're thinking globally or locally, tell us how you would fix the economy.  And don't be afraid to get creative; some of the best plans come out of off-the-wall suggestions.

Health Care Legislation: What's Next?

We've been covering this health care reform story for much of this school year, and it looks like the election of Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown is a game-changer in Washington.  Thursday's show talks about what this could mean for President Obama's top priority - and the significant detour that the health care debate could take.

What do you think about all this?  Our recent polls indicate that the economy is first on the minds of most Americans.  Where does health care reform rank for you?  And where do you think the health care debate is going from here?

Dream Come True?

Has MLK's dream come true?

With the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. approaching, we're planning to feature some of your comments on the civil rights leader's dream.  Part of that dream was that his children would live in a country where they "would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Dr. King spoke those words on August 28, 1963.  On January 18, 2010, how much of his dream do you think has come true?

Speaking Out or Keeping Quiet?

On our second broadcast of the new year, you see CNN's Tony Harris interview a group of high school students.  He asks them why people are sometimes reluctant to tell on others, even if a serious crime is being committed.  The quote that stood out the most to me was from the student who said, "I'm not going to help a person if I know that I'm going to be at risk to do it."

Would you keep quiet if it meant avoiding any risk to you, or would you report something you knew was wrong, regardless of whether speaking out was risky?
