Making Sense by Michael Reagan
Hillary Clinton may have been better off wearing the Emperor's New Clothes during her victory speech after the New York primary, rather than what she chose to wear and her aides managed to overlook.
Clinton, who has decried income "inequality" throughout the nation during her campaign, stood before the assembled ---- and carefully screened ---- crowd wearing a $12,495 Giorgio Armani jacket.
What she paid for the coat ---- assuming it wasn't a party favor from her Goldman Sachs speech ---- is just a bit less than the amount the average first time home buyer is required to post as a down payment for his dream home, or as The Washington Free Beacon calculates, "roughly 40 percent of what the average American worker makes in a year."
She's fortunate the price tag wasn't dangling from her outfit like that of Minnie Pearl.
This is beyond tone deaf. It's a combination of obliviousness and hypocrisy on a truly Clintonian scale.
If Hillary was sashaying down the runway at a Paris fashion show, there might be a justification for wearing a jacket that cost 12K, assuming she gave it back after the show. But to own this One Percent Wear is something else entirely.
During her speech Hillary proclaimed, "In this campaign, we are setting bold progressive goals backed up by real plans that will improve lives, creating more good jobs that provide dignity and pride in a middle class life, raising wages and reducing inequality, making sure all our kids get a good education."
How does one talk of "inequality" and then wear an outfit where a single piece of the ensemble costs the equivalent of 833 hours of labor ---- about five months ---- at her new $15/hour minimum wage?
Maybe one of those "good jobs that provide dignity" is cleaning her coat with tweezers, Q----tips and the tears of virgins.
No one expects Hillary to campaign in Walmart overalls, although it might provide an arresting visual, but is it too much to ask this tribune of the people to save her Armani for Wall Street speeches and Davos dinners?
She can probably find something flattering and just her size at Ann Taylor, and with the money left over she can splurge and take the entire campaign staff to lunch at her nearest Chipotle.
UWF STUDENTS PERSUADE CLASS TO DONATE TO
GULF COAST KID’S HOUSE
A pair of convincing students won over the hearts and wallets of their peers and professor as part of their Business and Professional Communication Class at the University of West Florida. Don Kerrigan and Parker Eiler were voted “most persuasive” after a series of presentations to their classmates.
This summer semester’s class led by Professor Rick Scott, asked the students to donate to a fund that would be given to the charity of choice of the winning team. The teams selected a charity at the beginning of the semester and then presented an informative presentation followed by a persuasive one, which included details about the financial responsibility of the charity as well as how their donations would be budgeted and spent.
Kerrigan, an engineering student, and Eiler, majoring in business, agreed on Gulf Coast Kid’s House as their charity because it’s locally supported, child focused and financially transparent. “We chose the Kid’s House after we started researching through their website and learned more about what they did for children right here locally,” shared Eiler. The team presented a check for $150.00 collected from the students and matched by their professor to Gulf Coast Kid’s House on Monday.
Gulf Coast Kid’s House, Inc. an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that receives 70% of its support from the community. In 2015, Gulf Coast Kid's House provided services to over 3,100 abused and neglected children. The trained professionals under one roof investigate, treat, and prosecute cases of child sexual and physical abuse, and severe neglect; education in child abuse prevention is also provided.
