Hillary’s Cluelessness

Hillary’s views on two issues that directly affect the middle class, for which she expresses great and consuming concern, betray both her galactical distance from the group, but, more importantly, her inability to emphasize with it.

Gun control. Hillary (and Obama from whom she is temporarily taking pragmatic political instruction) are so surrounded with guns for their protection that they have never found it necessary to pack personal heat. But what about the middle class? Is it any wonder that augmented violence in their neighborhoods, exacerbated by Dem-produced demoralization of police forces, has led citizens to consider, probably for the first time, the advisability of exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms for their protection?

Minimum wage. It seems that the Dem platform now includes a commitment to a federal $15/hr minimum wage. Putting aside that platforms are meaningless in the real world and that Hillary will probably go totally another way if she is elected, what does Hillary know about the impact of minimum wage restrictions on commerce? Has she ever been engaged in a commercial enterprise? Does she have a clue about the impact of minimum wage and other regulations which she reflexively favors have upon small business owners?

Hillary’s nomination may have crashed through a glass ceiling. But she seems to have celebrated her escape with occupation of a political bubble that is even more confining.

Does Trump have any idea of how his several bankruptcies have adversely effected small business owners?

He probably knows more than most how his lack of financial responsibility impacts the people who he leaves holding the bag.

Middle class white folks have less to fear from gun violence than they do the tricks and traps of con artists and hucksters like Trump.

One, it's affected, not effected.

Two, if you consider the bankruptcy laws, which Trump took advantage of very sparingly considering the many successful businesses he created, take it up with Congress.

Middle class WHITE folks? Why introduce race into the discussion unless it's something you libs can't resist?

This post is about Clinton, not Trump. Try to stick to the point if you can.

Please insert "unfair"  after "created" in item two.
