CCRP is good intentions. And thats how it gets started. Socialist change. Its for the good of the people!!!! Next thing you know we the people are paying these clowns $120,000 salaries, and changing our life to their ridiculous policies. Let the people come together, but cut the policy making BS.

I, as a tax payer, am not paying for this navel gazing am I? Policy makers is usually double speak for governmental intervention. It is not the job of government to feed anyone, or to teach people what to eat. If your friends and family or a privately funded group wishes to do that that is fine. But Government has no place for such behaviour.

I have to agree with #1 & 2. There is a segment
of our society and has come to depend on
government handouts. In turn, it has kept a
great many bureaucrats employed at the expense of the taxpayer. While temporary help is good, selective socialism is not.

Before anyone knocks this report try reading it? Stubblefield and her researchers provide good insight into a real problem that's facing this area. Without adequate research how does any community know how to adequately tackle a given problem? Grounded data keeps us all from pissing in the wind.
