  •  This statement is sheer idiocy!! (16+ / 0-)

    I'm serious, in this time, in our country, with highly skilled individuals unable to find work, any work; to make a statement like this is somewhat abnormal.
    It shows such a sense of disconnect with what millions are experiencing daily. Such a sense of complete lack of empathy or realization of what it really means to need money. Not money for a car, not money for a vacation, but money for a doctor visit or needing to make a decision between which medication you have to do without, because you can't afford more than 1 or 2. Having to flinch each time the phone rings because it could be another collection agency. Having to prostrate yourself in front of another Human Resources person in order to try for that one job left in a field where you are so overqualified, they don't want you because it's possible you'll get another offer.
    It just shows a complete lack of substance. A lack of what makes us connect with each other on the plane of human existence.
    For a Presidential candidate, to make a statement like this, whether serious or in jest, this should disqualify you from running for Dog Catcher!!!
