THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Feds won’t help their citizens


— How are the states in America “united” when some let their less fortunate citizens get the state’s medical insurance with doctors letters and states, like Oklahoma, won’t until approved for Social Security benefits? In the meantime, what happens to people who need medicine to live, can’t afford it, and there are no resources that provide or help them get it? Some places in Muskogee do help but to an extent.

Emergency room physicians give medicine to such unfortunates, in some cases trying to prolong their life, but afterwards they are in the same situation that warranted them needing emergency care to begin with.

The so-called “United States” has helped and, from how everything looks, continues to aid foreign countries and foreigners who come to America more than its own citizens.  

Looking back, this country destroys another country without just cause to do so, rebuilds it, makes the people of this country pay for it, and all the while treat the American people as though you’re saying to them, “Oh, well. Get over it.”

The decline in employment and incline in gas prices in the U.S. is staggering, very upsetting. That many in this country are in utter disbelief, hate our government, and burn American flags in protests of such idiocy and ignorance is not surprising.

I also wouldn’t be surprised that the wealthy, rich, lawmakers, employed (able to work, mind you), and those working for the system dispute this letter, however, because of where their heads so selfishly, ignorantly are.

Oklahoma is in the “Bible Belt?” Really? That explains why Muskogee, Oklahoma’s pants of decency, that should be holding up moral, medical standards for those who live here and can’t afford medical insurance, are sagging, looking unbelievably ignorant.
