Trump gives America's 'poorest white town' hope
People in places like this need opportunities to work, that's a fact. What frustrates me is that these people are promised "we'll bring back the coal mines". It would be better to make new industries, not force back the old ones. Value and growth comes from innovation,, not stagnation.
Do they really want to work in a coal mine? I doubt it, but that's what they know best, so they cling to it (I say).
These people need the tools to innovate: education, motivation, ambition, and a vivid imagination. Donald's not providing that.
Bringing back old industries seems to be Trump's solution to unemployment. I think it's unfair to people. Give them hope of a better future, by sticking them in a hole in the ground, mining a product that no one wants any more.
Better to be like Nevada and build gigafactories making Li-Ion batteries.
But I see why they voted for Trump. The incumbents have failed them for years, so they vote for (the promise of) something new.

Unfortunate system failure, or "denial of service"? My conclusion: Gillette is ripping me off.
