Lower Class or Middle Class should NOT Equal Poverty Existance & Crime

In the city of Rockford, IL., during the last census I discovered with great disapointment but not surprised that only 20% of the adult populuation of 160,000 had a post high school education. Sadly that calculated number is a miserale 32,000 people probably live a day to day existance above economic poverty level.

Currently at the high school I teach the “free or reduced” lunch rate (those that are considered poverty) is 85% which closely equates to the post high school education census rate for the population of Rockford, Illinois. While this may not be a scientific connection, it appears as though there is a strong connection.

Murders, Parking Lot Muggings, Home Break-ins, Burglaries, Purse Snatching and other violent and non violent crimes are on the increase in alarming proportions. I would argue that Rockford, Illinois is not unlike many cities in the United States.

I am asking The President of the United States to use his full Presidential influence and power to propose and champion a legislative initiative. This bill is entitled Jobs and Education for Americas’ Youth that would begin to provide a comprehensive solution for the raging fire that would act as not only a solution to reduce gun violence and other violence in our American cities, but provide to several generations with a renewed dignity of life that many Americans have long searched.

The Jobs and Education for Americas’ Youth legislative bill does and will provide a palatable framework for a public – private partnership that will inspire and motivate via financial incentives the return of manufacturing jobs to the USA.

Jobs, Unemployment, Gun Violence, Dead Young People, School Violence

Attention CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, Huffington Post, Google and other Professional Media:

We as Americans are getting extremly tired of poverty, unemployment, gun violence, children going to their grave at a very young age. Why is it that major media is focused on the “doom and gloom”, “death and disstruction” headlines versus embracing those individuals that are innovative, problem solvers, doers versus talkers regarding the “real” solutions to gun violence versus limiting our 2nd amendment rights?

Like most Americans I cried real tears when I heard of the Sandy Hook shooting. Similar emotions appeared when the theatre shootings were broadcaste on all the national media. I understand the need to talk about gun control, but lets spend greater efforts disecting the cause of gun violence.

I am proposing a innovative, creative new legislation entitiled The Jobs and Education for Americas’ Youth legislative bill does and will provide a palatable framework for a public – private partnership that will inspire and motivate via financial incentives the return of manufacturing jobs to the USA. This bill will save lives, dreams,and tears from being shed.

My proposed legislation will provide 1,000,000 living wage jobs, 1,000,000 post high school educations, 1,000,000 families with a renewed feeling of dignity, and thus a lack of need for gun violence.
