I didn't watch the first debate. Cliff watched, and I sat at my computer and laughed at what Facebook friends were saying. Tonight, I watched the debate.
Nobody impressed me, although I was very impressed by the whiteness of one candidate's teeth. One of my Facebook friends suggested his teeth were dentures, but hey, that doesn't make him a bad person.
I get tired of politicians acting like they know what it's like to be a member of the middle class. They don't have a clue.
Cliff and I have been pretty much "lower middle class" all our lives. Anybody who has met us knows it. We live in a trailer house, for heaven's sake... by CHOICE! We do own a real house, but Cliff's sister lives in it.
Now we are on Social Security, and we are REALLY lower middle class.
We're having a blast. I would love to see any candidate live on $2,500 a month and have as much fun as we do.
Meanwhile, the candidate with the teeth only made us thing of a movie we once saw, "The Witches of Eastwick". His smile was exactly like Jack Nicholson's evil grin in that movie. Of course that has nothing to do with anybody's qualifications for office.
Nobody liked Jimmy Carter, but I submit to you that he DID know something about the middle class. He knew what work was.
I am so tired of rich people telling me how much they care about the middle class.
