My left foot was numb with throbbing sensations in black and blue splotches, it is also 50% bigger than the right foot. I have kept showing the legs and the VA just look away, and now my right leg has classy skin with bumps.

They are going to take money I need out of SS to pay a Medicare premium when I cannot get food stamps because I move around. My cannot they take it out of KEOGH instead tax free, instead of SS, where I have to pay taxes on it. Frankly I cannot afford the Federal Government taking money out of SS, so they can use it on Congressional Health Care that I imagine they pay no premium on.


In the picture on the bottom you can see the black and blue with the bimps and sores.





Obama Nation Veteran Health Care Rant

(2011)

 

There are two types of health care in America,

White Collar Country Club with Executive Privilege,

And the Middle Class Blue Collar minimum wage one

That American veterans get serving this country’s battles.

While Congress gets paid those CEO golden packages.

 

Those pillar pedestal representatives of Marie Antoinette

Bourgeoisie materialism that looks down upon America.

That they receive benefits right after leaving office,

Should they not have the same terms as Social Security?

Since they are employee unions for “We the people.”

 

One tries to figure out, after being frozen for three years,

How to apply $40, when Medicare will take it right away.

That welfare for Congress is like a Wall St Subprime package.

While for Senior Citizens it is this poverty welfare check,

In bankruptcy CEO’s doing well, while a Middle Class suffers.

 

Homeless Vietnam Veteran having to pay $50 for office visits,

Uses SS to live in cheap motels, with inflating food prices.

That he cannot afford office visits to nurses and BP checks.

He has had concerns for swelling legs for over 3 years now,

Left toe has a cold sensation and legs feeling dull sensations.

 

Black and blue splotches that clear somewhat with ointment

But healing is long term deal, leaving a glassy look and feel.

While a rash breaks out on a poet’s hands and arms.

In America who cares for an Ben Franklin doppelganger

That like Democracy and Freedom, it should be amputated.

 

Because one resides on the Red, White, And Blue Side,

Not the Tiger White Collar Country Club side of Congress.

That 1% of the 99% needs Federal subsidized health care

That 47% of Congress are millionaires over the 99%.

The top eight are worth over a billion dollars together.

 

Why do these employees need automatic retirements?

Why do they need automatic perks in leaving office?

Why are not the fees they get afterwards, like in books,

Not taken off their Government welfare luxury checks?

Does America have a need to know, how much is spent here?

 

Must one lose a leg in America to be helped?

Is there not human compassion in the medical field?

Are we homeless in our feelings - as human beings?

Do you care, or are you like a Panama City Mayor

That wants to ban Churches from feeding the poor.

 

That our Government has lost God’s soul,

In its God Bless Made in America Washington Island.

Just think if the world sees an Amputated American,

Terminated for Poetry,

Censored 24/7 365 days a year by an former employers,

That this poet was accused of Southern Obscenity.

That being found innocent by a councilor

Was sentenced by a German Human Resources tribunal,

Like if, I lived in WWII in Germany - as a Liberal.

 

Oh America Judge me.

I fear not the Truth,

But the hypocrisy of Washington.

Did they send inquiries down to Mercedes?

Did they object to Mission Accomplished Free Speech?

Did a Catholic Church object to pedophilia?

That any abuse is an abomination to humanity.

Was it that, I called Germany a Christian nation in WWII?

That Protestants and a Pope needed to speak out without fear.

 

But tell me what happens in Free Speech?

They downsize you, because you were upset.

That in an Indiana business meeting that the KKK

Was discussed upsetting one in being improper.

Fortune 500 com pany that did not hire black welders

In this small southern Indiana workforce.

Talked to a councilor that came that it upset me.

One just wanted to get it off their minds for relief.

I said, I liked the manager, and did not want to harm him,

That soon after he downsized me,

While in a few days he is gone as well.

I did not want that

And they said it was secret.

 

It is like those that report abuse to police

They might as well start packing there things.

People do not want the hear the Truth.

But this Blue Code will find a reason to fire you.

Look at Congress, what happened to those

That exposed Washington inner gutter,

Why Norquist like elements see that

They are never reelected.

 

It is like asking Gingrich questions

That for every concrete attempt

The answers are filled in with deception.

Saying the Liberal media is out to get Gingrich.

Did he receive money from Sallie or Freddie Mae?

Why was he forced to relinquish his position in the House?

Did he work for any Health Care corporations as a consultant?

It Is like a Cain and his affairs like Gingrich while married,

The media has a right to know the concrete facts

Not the Creative Accounting of what “Lies” in Washington.

And what are real reporters doing?

Reporting facts, not political fiction.

How much money did Gingrich get in retirement?

What benefits does he still receive?

How much inside trading info did he receive?

Look at his stock and when things happened.

If his portfolio went up 15%,

While the rest of America’s went down,

There is a problem.

The Congressional Pension Program

Did it use Insider Trading for its members?

   

Congress can you imagine in the slightest way

That you can get someone, to just look at me?

That they do nothing but tell me if I need attention,

And where I can get real help from the VA.

I do not want to lose my right leg,

And these rashes on my hands,

What do I do?

But then with amputated hands and feet

It will be easier to imprison an American poet like China,

Not really with a poetic Declaration of Independence.

For this Ben Franklin has cerebral power

That will show the world

This Obama nation of Freedom and Democracy.

Is Real Change

Or the Shame Ole Same Thing of Enron becoming Sonadra.

 

-----------------

Blessings to those lost on Dec. 7 in Pearl Harbor.
