What's Next on Your Agenda?

Introduced: November 01 2012

Once we get past November 6 and the election has been decided (...unless, of course, it goes to Supreme Court...) what concerns and topics are you eager to get back to?

Dialogue on What's Next on Your Agenda?
311:

I'm going to try to enjoy every remaining moment of my favorite season: autumn

223:

After recent mega-storm Sandy, I want to see if the environment has gained any new defenders.

285:

I really didn't alter my agenda much because of the election. But now that it's over, I want to become much more watchful about how our financial institutions are regulated. We have just gone through hoops to get a mortgage on a second home and I need to understand why and also how their approach to mortgages is reflected in other economic trends.

010:

I want to read some good books that have nothing to do with politics.

215:

As we approached the election, I thought I'd be happy to take a big break from the political discussion. But I find myself extremely interested in what happens next. Will the politicians who seem so out of touch actually start trying to be responsive to the American people and do a better job? Or are the strategists just on to their next big scheme? I really would like to see all the people who manipulate politicians for their own selfish reasons -- whether it's the big donors or the lobbyists -- back off and let the elected leaders and the American people continue to have a dialogue.

159:

Planning a wedding (getting married next October)

321:

Writing my family history is my next big project. I've got the typical boxes full of photos, I have a new Mac with lots of photo capabilities, and I've decided that capturing and interpreting the family history has waited long enough.

171:

I have a new puppy and I want to get back to housetraining.

093:

The Holidays

536:

Actually, I will miss the political season. Although there were parts of the process that are dysfunctional, I realize that I am much more in touch with what’s going on in the world.

265:

After hearing all the statistics about the growing Latino population, I’m going to purchase language software and learn Spanish. That sounds like sarcasm, but honestly I don't mean it in a sarcastic way. If anything became clear in this election, it was that the America of the future will challenge us more than ever to look with fresh eyes and think with an open mind. All of us who might think we prefer the "old America" better find something new to embrace and enjoy about the future.
