This is the time of year that we pay attention to the presence of ghosts and goblins but our guests say that ghosts are real and that we create them all the time. How we do so may surprise you but we’ll explore the real world of ghosts and we’ll do so through the lens of some of the most famous ghost films ever made.

The rich come up every time there is a battle over tax reform and who should pay their fair share and the poor are often in the middle of battles over so-called entitlement programs and budget priorities.

The Middle Class is being discussed with great fervor on both sides and most experts agree that the next President will be the candidate who appeals most to these voters.
