But as long as they keep the pay low we will
still have METH as income.
And people walking without cars, because they needed the money to pay the higher rent.
Muskogee is rich or poor!
And the poor seems to be winning! The poor cost more! 1 poor is like 2 poor in reality!
So Muskogee’s poverty rate is 23.5 percent.
That is in reality 47%
The uninsured wait until the last sec, to get help
So there is more to fix, costing more to fix.
The cost of food stamps added to taxes that helps pay their rent.
If there is less taxes payed, there is less money to help them. So some make METH as income.
They lost their car to get more money to live on but the taxes gets lowered again & they have no means to get more income.
They keep the pay low here! ALEC!

Then there is more to the fact they keep
bring in high price places the people here can not afford. Also note those places pay minimum wage.
Also does not help!

Personally I think all the poor needs to go on strike! Stop buying anything. "They want to keep my pay low, I will keep their pay low!"

Thus the most stupid thing I heard.
"When was the last time a poor person gave you a pay check?" = The last time he bought my stuff!
