I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in the numerous forums, as they have been extraordinary most informative. I live in Calif. I have been afforded the opportunity to hear the concern's from people throughout the Country, the various concerns motivated me to investigate the elected official's from the various states (this is what I do, investigate) and the conclusion's that I have arrived with are simply. First, the demographics, this alone has divided us, those of us in the West are speechless with what we are hearing from those in the East. Example, the complaints from those us of in the West are the invasion of illegal, incarcerations and the courts. Those in the East, they are complaining about prisons, courts, displacement, real homelessness and just a variety of concerns. When I hear the complaints from Chicago, Michigan, Philly, etc. I am reminded of the early sixties.
I have real concerns, and if I was able to decipher what is occurring throughout the Country within a weeks time, why aren't those that are in DC deciphering these problems. After all, this is what we pay them to do; they are to be problem solvers for their communities. I am sure that the elected officials in DC communicate, therefore, my questions are simple. Have they been derelict in their duties? Have they forgotten about the people? More importantly, are they a part of a scheme?
Regardless of all of the concerns throughout the nations, the common denominator's that every state is having appears to be Children Protective Service (CPS) the taking of peoples children, the high incarcerations and the courts system. Perhaps these three factors could be the glue to bring the nation together.
Lastly, why have we allowed the same folks to remain in office for decades while a community has perished? Why hasn't the federal money that is being sent to the various states been used for CETA programs, which created jobs back in the seventies, why are centers being built to rehab those that are on drugs? It appears that there is a scheme to imprison the poor. It would be less costly to train and employ via CETA, it would be less costly to rehab via centers. One must ask oneself, why would a system take money to destroy lives at a rate of about fifty thousand a year to imprison a non-violent offender as opposed to making productive citizens out of them at a less cheap cost. Why is so much money being spent to destroy families and lives?
I would like to hear your comments.
