OT: follow-up on SNAP/food stamp thread


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHug0AIhVoQ

The food stamp discussion caused me to research the topic in depth, and expand on my suggestion to create some sort of
mobile community commissary to provide access to fresh fruits and vegetables in the core urban areas. This resulted in a proposal for SNAP Effectiveness Improvement Initiative [SEII] which you can see in pdf format at http://mcduffee-associates.us/DROP%20BOX/SNAPcomplete06.pdf
loaded and configured correctly should be clickable. I apologize for the length, but this is a complex topic, and the somewhat turgid academic prose, but this was the audience for which it was written.
As is not uncommon, writing the proposal also resulted in a serendipitous insight, namely that the U. S. economy doesn't exist as such, but rather is a trope for an aggregate or agglomeration of distinct and separate economies, which happen to be domiciled within the geographic boundaries of the United States, from post-industrial/post-capitalist, e. g. San Francisco, through second word/socialist, e. g. New York City, 3rd world/less developed, e. g. rust belt, to 4th world undeveloped/failed state, e. g. Detroit and Newark.
Another significant finding, more directly related to the SNAP/nutrition challenge, is that while the existing SNAP program is costly to the taxpayers, ==>the consequential
malnutrition of the current SNAP program (and typical American diet) and existing food distribution channels, because of catastrophic rise in diet induced diabetes, cardiovascular, renal, and other problems such as
Another insight, which has been confirmed locally, is the
children and infants, which appears to be the result of unsanitary food handling and/or unsafe storage, treated at the local hospital emergency rooms, again largely at taxpayer expense. The proposed initiative also addresses this facet.
