Republican Star Parker also challenging Richardson for 37th Congressional seat Nick Diamantides

Nick Diamantides

Star Parker remembers what it was like to be a single mom on welfare. Looking back on those years, she strongly believes that many government programs which were aimed at helping the poor actually keep people in the cycle of poverty by punishing behavior that would enable them to live prosperous lives independent of government assistance. Now Parker is the Republican candidate for California’s 37th Congressional District, and she hopes to unseat incumbent Democrat Laura Richardson in the Nov. 2 election. “Having Laura Richardson represent the people of the 37th District is unacceptable in a free country that is so rich with opportunity,” she said. “For that reason, I had to come back to the district to challenge her.” According to Parker, the United

Stan Chambers’s career as a television news broadcaster began in 1947, when KTLA became the first commercially licensed TV station in the western United States. During his 63-year career, Chambers became one of the most widely known broadcasters in Southern California. He remained with KTLA until he retired last Aug. 11, his 87th birthday. Last Thursday, approximately 100 people gathered at a special Signal Hill Chamber of Commerce luncheon to pay tribute to Chambers at the community center in Signal Hill Park. Denise Damrow, Chamber of Commerce vice president, gave a brief biographical sketch of Chambers before introducing him to the audience. She noted that he graduated with a degree in journalism from USC and worked for a short time as a see chambers page 10

SH Chamber swears in new board of directors

Brett Ashley Hawkins Editorial Intern

It’s a common question among the household these days– with new gadgets coming out so often, what should be done with obsolete, outdated technology? Global E-Recyclers, which provides businesses and consumers with technology disposal and recycling services using environmentally safe procedures, will collect old appliances Saturday, Sept. 4 from 9am to 3pm at 3515 Linden Ave. The collection event will also be a fundraiser for the Long Beach Bar Foundation’s (LBBF) SHORTSTOP program, a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening youth of the greater Long Beach area through juvenile crime prevention and diversion, scholarships and legal education, among other charitable programs. Technology’s shelf life has shrunk at a higher rate yearly, since computer manufacturers develop more efficient models chock full of innovation and see e-waste page 12

(Part one of a two-part series) Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (D-CA 39th District) praised the Water Replenishment District (WRD) for its successful efforts to ensure that the region has adequate groundwater supplies, but she said more regulations might be necessary to encourage conservation and reduce pollution. Sanchez was the keynote speaker at WRD’s Groundwater 101 Forum, which took place Aug. 27 at WRD headquarters in Lakewood. About 50 people attended the event, including managers and representatives from various local water agencies and city councils. An environmental-science instructor and students from Rio Hondo College also attended. “Groundwater is sometimes not on people’s radar screens,” Sanchez said. “In this world of global warming, record heat waves and extreme weather patterns, the topic of water is going to be more and more important, not just to California, but to our country as a whole.” Sanchez pointed out that water has played a major role in the development

TJ'S Shocking Truth… I have 3-prong plugs in my house - does that mean they're grounded? Most homes built before 1958 had ungrounded outlets. this was generally not a problem, since most appliances had only a 2-prong cord connection. if your cord connected appliance has a 3-prong cord connection, there's a reason. a grounded outlet assures the user some degree of electrical safety. it works like this: if your appliance shorts out, it is possible that it could become energized. if the plug is grounded, this energy goes to ground, causing the breaker to trip. if this appliance is plugged into an ungrounded outlet, it is possible that it may cause an electrical shock. 2-prong receptacles in many homes have been replaced with 3-prong receptacles that have not actually been grounded. Most fancy-pants tvs, computers and electronics require a grounded outlet to work properly and protect your warranty. Most individual existing plugs can be grounded without a complete rewire.

of the American West, especially Southern California. “I grew up hearing that we live in a reclaimed desert,” she said. “So I know some of the challenges that we face.” Sanchez noted, however, that dwindling water supplies are not just a problem in Southern California and the Southwest. “Thirty nine states are expected to experience serious water shortages in the next decade,” she said. “We have to be very conscious of the role that water plays in our lives, and the way we reshape the policy discussion about water is to start thinking of the ways we use this very precious resource.” The congresswoman explained that federal, state and local governments must implement more programs that give everyone clear incentives to use water efficiently and to avoid waste. “We need regulations affecting water use in appliances and incentives to shift from irrigated lawns to water-smart landscape,” she said, adding that those were just two examples of what governments and water agencies should do to protect America’s water supply. Sanchez added that educating the public about wasteful water use must also be a key element in water-conservation efforts. She explained that many people still do not practice very simple, painless water conservation at home. “We need to have everyone keenly aware of water usage,” she said. Sanchez said she believes that federal and state governments have an obligation to help develop water-efficiency techniques. “We need to get information out. We need to train people,” she said. “In some cases, economic incentives need to be provided to farms and businesses that will help them to shift to more water-friendly practices.” She explained that, for most of its

history, the United States has made many unwise choices with regard to water usage, an example of which is the plethora of dams that were built in the 1900s. “If I were a member of Congress back in the days of FDR, I would have supported federal funding for dams in and near my district,” she said. “Back then, bringing a dam home was a fad, and it made an area rich and provided jobs.” She stressed, however, that in those days most people did not realize the destructive effect that such massive projects had on the environment. Nowadays, she noted, the American people are much more cognizant of the environmental impacts of major developments, and they are also more aware of the need to conserve water. Sanchez added that, in order to encourage more water conservation, she and some of her colleagues in Congress are currently working on legislation to create a “Water Star” program to be the equivalent of the “Home Energy Star” program. “The idea of the program is to reward communities and homeowners that make that concerted effort to protect and improve their community in areas of surface water, groundwater, habitat, and plants,” she said. “I have been working with the Water Replenishment District and some of my colleagues in the Senate to try to get this done.” Sanchez said that for years she has been working with WRD to organize local members of Congress to address regional needs and find ways to increase the local water supply, and reduce storm water runoff pollution. “We need to work collaboratively on a region-wide basis,” she explained. The Congresswoman also said she believes the federal government needs to supply more funding for “smart street construction” that puts more water back into the ground instead of flushing it into storm sewers that carry it and tons of debris and pollution into rivers, lakes and oceans. She added that all levels of government must work together to ensure that Americans today, as well as future generations, have adequate supplies of clean, safe drinking water. “I don’t think our water policy can get more basic than that,” she said. Next Week: WRD Director Lillian Kawasaki explains the vital role WRD plays in maintaining the region’s water supply.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Celiac feedback As your respected publication serves one or more of the communities that is also served by our free, online health-support group, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some important information about an epidemic whose standard treatment is not any medicine, but rather a special diet. Ironically, the uniqueness of this standard treatment may help explain why the disease is neglected more than any other by our quick-fix, drug-oriented country. According to the National Institutes of Health, celiac is the most under-diagnosed disease in the United States, affecting at least one in 133 people. The disease also affects people of all races, except those whose ancestry is in China or Japan; and among Caribbean people of purely African ancestry. But, among all other people, celiac disease is common. Gluten Free Way 105 is a free support group for individuals who live with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity in many Los Angeles cities/communities near Interstate 105. Gluten Free Way 105 offers

unique features: • Comprehensive albums of photos of gluten-free groceries at local stores. • Comprehensive list of addresses and contacts of restaurants known to offer gluten-free dishes in our service area. This info is in the Gluten Free Way 105 Restaurant Guide, sent free of charge to each new member of our online support group. • Comprehensive descriptions and driving directions from the 105 to dining establishments in our service area that offer gluten-free dishes in the Gluten Free Way 105 Restaurant Guide. • Links to the full text of medical studies on celiac disease and/or gluten sensitivity. As matter of public service, we do not accept advertising on our site. However, we welcome any publicity you deem helpful to our mission to address this long-neglected, though serious public health concern. Thank you for your precious time and attention. Paul T. Jackson Owner/Moderator Gluten Free Way 105

Thoughts from the Publisher

by Neena Strichart We’ve got some big things happening in Signal Hill. First we get a Ross and a Dollar Tree. Then Circle Pet relocates here. Now we have a brand new Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market set to open its doors Wednesday morning across from Home Depot on Cherry Avenue. Believe me, we will be there ready for the photo op. I know this may sound like an over-inflated statement, but having this store so close to home is going to “change my life.” Other than Food 4 Less, we’ve never had much grocery shopping available without having to go to the traffic circle area or up to Bixby Knolls. Telling Steve that I’m going shopping “on my way home” has usually meant that I would either have to drive in the opposite direction of “home” or venture far past our residence. Getting a quick gallon of milk, eggs and a box of cereal has been anything but “quick.” Knowing that Fresh & Easy was coming soon, I have recently been shopping at the location far out on Spring Street near Palos Verdes Avenue in order to get acquainted with the store. I’m hooked. Although Trader Joe’s is my first love for all things gluten free and for specialty items, I know that having Fresh &

Easy close by will make our lives “oh, so easy.” Here’s a bit of the press release Fresh & Easy sent us yesterday morning… Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market will open the doors to its store at 2475 Cherry Avenue on Wednesday, Sept. 8, bringing fresh, wholesome food at affordable prices to the neighborhood. Neighbors are invited to attend the store’s five-day grand opening celebration beginning at 10am. Fresh & Easy will present a $1,000 donation to a local non-profit organization as part of the opening. The Signal Hill Fresh & Easy location will employ around 20 people and will continue to recruit from the local neighborhood. The company provides the opportunity for all employees to work at least 20 hours a week, which entitles them to comprehensive healthcare and competitive benefits. Entry-level positions will pay well over the minimum wage, starting at $10 an hour, with a potential quarterly bonus of up to 10 percent. [Ed. note: A site is also being prepared for a new Fresh & Easy store to be located on Atlantic Avenue at the corner of 33rd Street, across from Target].

Kids encouraged to participate in Library Card Sign-up Month September is Library Card Signup Month, and the Long Beach Public Library is making an effort to ensure that all children in the city have the smartest card of all– a library card. Public library programs and books for children make a difference in the lives of students. By providing school-age children with engaging programs and collections, students from all backgrounds become excited and enthusiastic readers. Activities at the 12 Long Beach libraries

during the month include story times, reading circles, and craft activities. “A library card has always been a valuable tool for success in school,” said Glenda Williams, director of Library Services. “Our libraries provide children with access to print and online resources to be literate, as well as computer literate. Libraries are also thriving technology hubs that thousands of residents rely on as either their first or only choice for computer and Internet access. There’s a lot happen-

ing at the Long Beach Public Library, and it’s all free with a library card.” Library Card Sign-up Month is a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Getting a library card is easy. For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit any Long Beach Public Library or visit the library online at lbpl.org.

IRS offering expanded tax benefits for education, changing rules for college savings plans The Internal Revenue Service is reminding college students and parents about expanded tax benefits for education and rule changes for taxfree college savings plans known as 529 plans. Two key tax provisions from the Recovery Act of 2009 may help taxpayers reduce their 2010 tax bill. One allows 529 plan users to pay for a student’s computer-related technology needs such as Internet access. The other provision means more taxpayers will be eligible to claim a lucrative education credit to help offset cost of college and maybe even get a bigger refund. “The tax code is full of deductions and credits in the education arena,” said IRS Spokesman Raphael Tulino. “Taxpayers are encouraged to review their situation and take the tax benefit that offers the most savings.” Tax-free college savings plans, commonly called 529 plans, allow tax-free distributions as long as the funds are used to pay qualified higher education expenses for a designated beneficiary. Qualified expenses include tuition, required fees, books, supplies, equipment and special-needs services. For 2010, computer technology and equipment or Internet access and related services to be used by the student while enrolled at an eligible educational institution also qualify. (Software designed for sports, games or hobbies does not qualify, unless it is predominantly educational in nature.) The American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOTC) modifies the existing Hope credit for tax years 2009 and 2010, making it available to a broader range of taxpayers. Those el-

igible may qualify for the maximum annual credit of $2,500 per student. AOTC generally offers greater tax savings thanexisting education tax breaks. Other key features include: • Available for the first four years of post-secondary education. Expands on two years allowed by the Hope Credit.

• Tuition, related fees, books and other required course materials now generally qualify. • The credit is equal to 100 percent of the first $2,000 spent and 25 percent of the next $2,000. That means the full $2,500 credit may be available to a taxpayer who pays $4,000 or more in qualified expenses for an eligible student.

• The full credit is available for taxpayers whose modified adjusted gross income is $80,000 or less ($160,000 for joint filers). A smaller credit is available for incomes above those limits, but it eventually phases out. These limits are higher than under the existing Hope and Lifetime Learning Credits. • Forty percent of the AOTC is re-

broadcaster on the university’s radio station before being hired by KTLA. “His 27-and-one-half hour onscene coverage in April 1949 on the unsuccessful attempt to rescue Kathy Fiscus from an abandoned well in San Marino has been recognized as the first live coverage of a breaking news story,” Damrow said. “It even prompted the sale of hundreds of TV sets in the Los Angeles area.” Damrow added that Chambers was involved in the first live telecast of an atomic bomb test at the Nevada test site, and he covered many other historic events, including the 1958 Hancock Oil fire in Signal Hill, the 1961 Bel Air fires, the 1963 Baldwin Hills Reservoir dam break, the 1963 kidnapping of Frank Sinatra Jr., the 1965 Watts riots, the 1968 assassination of Robert Kennedy, the 1971 Syland 1994 Northridge mar earthquakes, the Manson Family’s Tate-LaBianca murders, the Hillside Strangler killing spree, and the Rodney King beating and subsequent 1992 LA riots. Damrow noted that, during his career, Chambers covered more than 20,000 news stories. She added that he has also earned several Emmy and Golden Mike awards, as well as a long list of awards from his peers, various organizations and certificates of recognition from city, county and state agencies. “Stan has also written a book, KTLA News at Ten: 60 years with Stan Chambers, and is also involved with the Stan Chambers Journalism Awards, an annual essay competition

that awards senior high-school students interested in journalism careers with cash awards,” Damrow said. “It is very emotional to be here today and to look back at some of the things that we lived through,” Chambers told the audience. He explained that some of the events he covered were unbelievable. He said some of the stories were so shocking that he and his colleagues sometimes felt they would not even be able to speak in front of the camera, but somehow they managed to report all the news. “It’s this constant challenge that makes it so appealing,” he noted. He reminded the audience that the broadcasters and show hosts on KTLA and all the other TV stations became like close members of the American family. “Every night you would turn on that television, and there they were,” he said. Chambers spoke briefly about the early years at KTLA and how television programming evolved over time, but live coverage of breaking news was always the most grueling task. He noted that during the Hancock Oil Refinery fire, he and other KTLA news staff were on the scene for ten to 12 hours. After his brief presentation, Chambers invited audience members to ask him questions. Several people asked questions about the programming and some of the technical aspects of broadcasting in the early days of television. One man asked him to respond to the often heard criticism that because TV news concentrates on brief sound bites, it has become very

shallow, lacking the depth of information that viewers need in order to understand what is really happening in the world. “That is a very accurate criticism,” Chambers responded. He explained, however, that with cable and satellite programming there is now an almost limitless number of TV channels available to viewers. “If you went on with a news story, where you are just talking about it, you would lose a lot of your viewers. They would just go to another channel,” he said. “So what you do is you present it in the most visual way that you can. Pacing is very vital in keeping a television audience.” Now married to Gege, Chambers had 11 children with his first wife, Beverly, who passed away several years ago. “Now that I am retired, I look forward to spending more time with my wife and family and playing golf,” Chambers said. He added that he will do occasional special stories for KTLA. After Chambers concluded his discussion, he received certificates of recognition from the Chamber of Commerce and the offices of several local elected officials. Signal Hill Mayor Ed Wilson presented Chambers with an official City of Signal Hill proclamation honoring him for the important service he provided to Southern California for more than six decades. “I appreciate that you covered the news on a non-bias basis,” Wilson said. “You were not telling people what they needed to think, you were telling them what was happening.” ß

LBPD seeking information regarding deceased woman in motor home On Aug. 30, at approximately 6:30pm, Long Beach police responded to the 700 block of E. 45th Street regarding a deceased woman found in her motor home. The deceased, identified as 47year-old Virginia Boynton, was discovered there by a family member who had become concerned for her welfare and went to the location to check on her. The motor home was Boynton’s only form of resi-

dence. There were no obvious signs of trauma to the body and the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office will determine the official cause of death pending the autopsy. Anyone who may have any information regarding this incident is asked to contact Long Beach Police Homicide Detectives Scott Lasch and Donald Goodman at (562) 570-7244. ß

On Saturday, Aug. 28, the Long Beach Police Department conducted a Driving Under the Influence/Driver’s License checkpoint at Anaheim Street and Freeman Avenue, as part of its “Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest.” campaign for 2010. The checkpoint operated from 6pm to 2am, and officers were assisted by Long Beach Police Explorers and Long Beach Search and Rescue. During the operation, 989

Three people were arrested for driving under the influence, one person was arrested for an outstanding warrant, two vehicles were impounded because the drivers were unlicensed or had a suspended license, three vehicles were towed, and 21 drivers were issued traffic citations. The operation was funded through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. ----------------------------------------MORE INFORMATION (562) 570-5737

affordability. More than a billion personal computers and monitors have been sold worldwide since 1981. An estimated 254 million computers became obsolete in the United States between 1997 and 2003, and then another 250 million between 2004 and 2007. The fate of these outdated machines is usually a one-way trip into the garage or another stockpiled storage facility. Fourteen percent are recycled or reused, and eleven percent end up in landfills. “I purchased my computer in 1997,” said Long Beach resident Patrick Finley. “I have since bought a new Macintosh in 2008. My old computer gathers dust in my attic.” Various studies show that electronic waste is a growing concern to environmental safety. According to one study cited on the Global E-Recyclers website, 56 percent of American households have working electrical equipment they no longer use, 33 percent plan to store these appliances indefinitely, and nine percent plan to recycle them. The study goes on to say more than 10,000 computer monitors and televisions become outdated every day. Additionally, lead, mercury, and arsenic are among several hazardous materials harbored by electrical equipment. An estimated 70 percent of heavy metals in landfills can be sourced back to discarded electronics, while electronic waste represents two percent of this country’s trash in landfills. The Environmental Protection Agency regulates the disposal of waste from businesses. Global E-Recyclers’ goal is to keep all electronic waste out of landfills. The organization is an approved participant in the California Electronic Waste recycling program, adhering to strict

They accept electronics for recycling Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm from Californian businesses and residents. LBBF formed its SHORTSTOP program in 1994 to divert non-violent juvenile offenders from the ages of 10 to 17 away from the juvenile justice systems through legal education for them and their parents. It aims to im-

prove parenting skills and family communication by emphasizing the importance of education. “SHORTSTOP is one of the most effective youth crime prevention and intervention programs offered in Long Beach,” said Timothy Jackman, Deputy Chief of Police. Each year, the SHORTSTOP program serves more than 400 culturally and economically diverse families. All classes are taught by volunteering attorneys. “It is important to make an ef-

fort, through programs such as SHORTSTOP to salvage young people early on,” said retired Judge Richard F. Charvat. “Early deterrance is essential. It is good for the individual, and it is good for society.” During the fundraiser, CRT monitors, televisions, cell phones, fax machines, printers, VCRs, copiers, toners, monitors & terminals, hard drives, main frames, keyboards, mice, laptops, power supplies, and many other electronics will be accepted for e-waste re-

However, batteries or any household or kitchen appliances will not be accepted. “We have to be in compliance with many laws,” said Liz Yanez, account executive for Global E-Recyclers. “All CRT TVs and monitors need documentation– a name and address, and, with 10 items or more, a phone number is needed as well.” ----------------------------------MORE INFORMATION (562) 321-9310

step out of poverty is self-government,” she said. “People need to understand that they have a responsibility to the rest of us to be self sufficient, to be responsible with your choices. When people do that, we need less dollars in our government coffers.” She asserted that Richardson has consistently voted for government handouts that will create a tax burden so great that no working family will be able to survive without governmental assistance, and once that happens, America will cease to be a free country. Parker stressed that what welfare programs have done to black families and communities should serve as a warning to America. “There were studies conducted many years ago that showed that if we engineered a War on Poverty or Great Society, we would see black family life collapse,” she said. “It was a vulnerable community looking for educational and employment opportunities, but the government’s method of helping did far more harm than good.” Parker explained that in the 1960s, the out-of-wedlock birthrate was 22 percent in black America and about three percent for the rest of the population. Then, according to Parker, the welfare program set up during the Johnson administration gave financial rewards to mothers who had no job, no husband, and little or no money in the bank. “It was not a deliberate thing, but it did collapse the black family,” she said. “Over time, it became an incentive for many young women to not work and not get married. If they did either of those two things, they would lose their welfare checks.” She said that led to the collapse of the black family and eventually the collapse of the black community. “Today, the outof-wedlock birthrate in the black community is seven out of 10,” she said. Parker said she wants to reverse that process in the black community and stop it from progressing in other communities. “Now the Hispanic community’s out-of-wedlock birthrates are at about 48 percent, and the white community’s out-of-wedlock birthrate is 33

percent,” she said. “Wherever we see welfare, we see all the other pathologies: low educational aspiration, high drug rates, high crime rates and more out-of-wedlock birth rates. That is true across the board.” According to Parker, communities need three things to be healthy and vibrant. “First of all, they need engaged people who understand personal responsibility, and, secondly, they need a strong business community that provides employment opportunities,” she said. “The way you make businesses strong is you reduce regulations that make it difficult for businesses to thrive.” The third thing communities need to be healthy and vibrant, according to Parker, is strengthened charities. “There are people who really cannot help themselves, and local charities are the best way to meet the needs of those people,” she stressed, adding that said volunteerism and financial donations are necessary for charities to be strong. “We need to pass legislation that provides tax credits– dollar-for-dollar tax deductions– to people who give to local charities,” Parker said. She explained that private charities are more efficient at helping the needy because people freely give their money and time to the work being done. “It’s not the government taking somebody’s money and giving to a poverty program that operates under regulations established in Washington DC,” she said. “It’s local people who know how best to meet the needs of the people in their region, and it’s volunteers giving their time to help people in need.” She insists that the welfare state has taught millions of able-bodied, mentally competent people to believe that they cannot survive without tax-funded governmental assistance. Parker said that she and many others are very alarmed about what is happening in American society today. “The increasing dependency on government is the wrong direction for our nation to take,” she explained. “If you have a field that nobody owns, but everybody is allowed to come in and graze off of,

pretty soon there is nothing left.” Parker insists that America must reverse that trend. “We can’t do it overnight. We can’t just abruptly cut people off of welfare, but we must start taking steps toward creating healthy communities, by encouraging people to take personal responsibility,” she said. According to Parker, Richardson has yet to come up with or support creative strategies that would actually help individuals and families climb out of the grip of poverty without burdening workers and businesses with heavy taxes. “Laura Richardson even voted

against Race to the Top legislation, which provides federal grants to states that come up with strategies for improving their educational systems,” Parker said. Although Parker has maintained her Southern California residency for more than 20 years, she lived mostly in Washington DC after founding CURE. She moved to the Bixby Knolls section of Long Beach in April of this year and has a grown, married daughter. ------------------------------------------More Information starparkerforcongress.com

Parker continued from page 1

States is not simply in an economic dilemma– it is at a critical crossroads where long cherished freedoms are threatened with extinction. “We have to make a decision as to who we are going to be as a people,” she said. “Either we are all going to be government dependent or we are going to be free people.” Parker noted that it is commonly known that as a young woman she was on welfare. “But after a Christian conversion, I changed my life,” she said. “I completed college and started a business.” She explained that after earning a bachelor of science degree in marketing from Woodbury University in Los Angeles, she launched an urban Christian magazine, but that business was destroyed by the 1992 LA riots. Then she began serving on various boards and commissions focusing on welfare reform and alternative solutions to fight poverty. She also authored two books and currently works as a syndicated columnist for the Scripps Howard News Service. About 15 years ago, Parker founded the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), a Washington think tank, and she is currently the president of that organization. “We look at market-based solutions to fight poverty,” she said. “We share ideas with governmental officials that we believe will help move people away from government dependency and poverty.” As a columnist and speaker, she shares the findings of that organization with millions of people every year. Parker stressed that possibly the main issue before the voters this November is whether America should become a Socialist society. “Are we going to have a heavy-handed government in every part of our lives, or are we going to try to find local solutions and family solutions on how we can live and build community,” she asked. Parker said there are two ways of looking at economic stability. One is to take money from businesses and people who work and give it to the poor. The other way is to encourage people to become more responsible. “The first
