Re: “The great connector

I believe Davy Crockett spoke in Congress against federal welfare.
We should heed his advice and leave charity to private, direct to those in need organizations.

Re: “How can we improve local families' access to early childhood education programs and child care?

No reasonable choice provided.
Perhaps this poll will fail because the correct choices are absent.

Re: “SLO County High

Look around. There are plenty of 'progrssives' in SLO. Who else gave us the bag bans? Who else leads the way statewide bans?

Re: “Kindness of strangers

I remember free dental/vision and medical clinics at Los Angeles County General Hospital where I trained to become an RN. Not only that, I remember using the free clinics in the cities where I have lived in California. Every city and county had such services long before the 'feds's tepped in with Medicare and MediCal [Medi/Medi].

Charity existed and was used by those in need until the tracking and billing practices forced on them led to closures and even more rules and regs until we now have only a failing system left.

Help real charities and fight to reopen local public health care facilities. Bring back the county hospitals and clinics.

Re: “Green dreamin'

Good Question. Why do individuals think what has not worked for others will work for us?

Actually, I suspect they are not getting the facts, just the hyperbole.

Re: “The biggest problem

Those who can't adapt to rules in order to be housed still deserve our help and sympathy.
Provide laundry and personal care facilities and locations for under the stars sleeping.
Print up and distribute at libraries and city halls business cards with contact infomation for such support.
We can all give those out instead of cash . . .

I do believe mini homes can be a solution.
