  1. We are the only country that says poor people can’t eat yet they weight 300 pounds..teach a man to fish…they even wildlife refuges have signs that say don’t feed the animals as they become dependent on the food and will not find food for themselves..I feel the same way about politicians..don’t get me wrong, indont want any child to go to bed at night hungry but why aren’t we teaching their parents a trade instead of just giving them a card with money on it? Where’s the incentive to do better for your kids? Where’s the example to show kids that hard work and determination are where it’s at. This generational welfare has t worked in 50 years.

Generational poverty, lack of opportunities for trade and other forms of education and the mental illness aspect and our lack of attention to it which is a national embaraasment.Our offices in on Laney Walkerr a 5 minute walk in one direction to the massive medical district. Walk 5 minutes in the other direction and well let;s just say it is not thriving or franky safe. Our commission needs to study, plan and responsibly spend funds tacticallty and strategically to teach people to fish.
