'Common' people aren't being heardPosted Monday, January 16, 2012, at 8:59 AM
Sen. Bob Corker visited Tennessee last Tuesday, talking to Nashville-area Realtors, Cheatham County CEOs and the Dover Kiwanis Club.
What about the rest of us? Do you have to be "connected" to be heard?
Yes, the business community should have a voice and, yes, some business people can get things done well.
But the trend in recent years has been for mostly business people to run for office, along with constant reminders around election time that people who have run a business should be in charge.
Well, some "business" people, i.e. Wall Street, have nearly run America into the ground. And so-called "blue-collar" people have just as much, if not more, sense and common sense.
Everyone should have a voice.
