FEEDBACK:  Readers cry foul over fed actions

   If the following sampling from readers is any indication of how fed up Americans are becoming over our dysfunctional government, we’re in trouble.  Everything is making us angry…the invasion of illegal aliens, the militarization of police, domestic spying, our imperial President, the impoverishment of the middle class and more.


 Here’s a condensed sampling of the letters the Poor Man is reading.  Let us know what you think.


Obamacare is Worthless

 “I’ve been to the doctor for a foot injury for which I was to have an air-cast put on.  They will not cover it due to my insurance as the deductible is $12,700 due to the changes you have made.  This is in addition to the $500 per month my husband pays out of his salary for insurance coverage.

I have a choice of paying for this cast or buying food and fuel for my family.  I chose food and fuel.  My son can’t get financial aid or grants for his college because he’s not married has no children nor is he divorced.  He has no criminal background either and makes only minimum wage working a part time job.

I work for a small school system who will not hire full time staff due to cutbacks and overly expensive insurance.  My income does not cover the $12,700 deductible.

Mr. Obama, you’d rather have the Middle Class pay the medical, food, school, and housing costs for illegal aliens – they pay NOTHING!  I would like the same benefits Mr. Obama!

We Americans need to be treated better as we pay your salary and benefits.  You have stolen my rights as a middle class citizen and have lied about this health care plan and you are morally inept.  I will be forwarding all my medical bills to your home on Pennsylvania Ave…the one WE paid for!

The Immorality of NSA Spying on US Citizens

Recent disclosures about the NSA illegally spying on citizens without a court order should scare and anger every American.  I suggest everyone read Glenn Greenwald’s book No Place to Hide.  He describes the extraordinary measures our government goes to defile our Bill of Rights and privacy.

In reality, this is nothing new.  Even during the American Revolution Mr. Franklin’s post office spied on the mail of citizens.  What is new however, is the technology the government uses (at our expense, adding insult to injury).  The United States government has perfected a technology which monitors everything we do.

Today’s spy activities have never been worse, wrapped in utter BS telling us it is for our own good.  In my opinion, Snowden is a hero.  He gave up a comfortable lifestyle to expose this government crap.

Transparency International just released its "Corruption Perceptions Index" (CPI) for 2014. This index surveys experts on public sector corruption in 177 countries. The U.S. scored a 77 on the 0 to 100 scale. This places America 19th on the list. Ten years ago, we placed 14th. Why have we declined?

As the personal income tax rate increases, corruption tends to increase. Similarly as government spending and total government tax revenue increased, corruption also increased.


Nothing Seems Right About our Government Anymore

Finally, many, many people have written to express their anger over how the feds have militarized police and other agencies as if they were actively planning to attack taxpayers in the very near future…the powder keg near St. Louis has even the world press asking what the hell is going on the USA, Land of the Free?

A U.S. Army document that was released just a few months ago outlines how the Army would respond to "full scale riots" inside the United States.  As Paul Joseph Watson has detailed, this includes potentially using "lethal force" against "unarmed civilians"...


A document released by the U.S. Army details preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with unruly crowds of demonstrators.


The appearance of the document amidst growing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, with the National Guard now being called in to deal with the disorder, is an ominous coincidence.


The 132-page document, titled U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances (PDF), was written in April 2014 and recently obtained by Public Intelligence.


The document makes it clear that the techniques detailed therein are to be applied both outside and inside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”

The training manual outlines scenarios under which, “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots.”

The most shocking aspect of the document is the fact that it describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire.”

Under the heading “sniper response,” the document states, “Ensure that target leaders or troublemakers are targeted,” in addition to a passage which states, “Exploit the psychological effect of an attack.”

The recent civil disobedience, rioting and police brutality in Ferguson, Missouri, reminds us of what happens when police states and bad economics are mixed together. Devastated by decades of ruinous economic policies, the economies of many inner cities continue to languish as the self-ownership of local residents is treated with contempt by the police and any attempt at building a small-business-based or wage-based economy is hobbled by government regulation.

I had a very negative experience with Manisha T Patel, and her company. She was highly rude, and also tried to cheat me by quoting an unrealistic price.

DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE! They are scammers and cheaters and do not deserve any business.
