    Shutdown over: What next?

    Frozen Assets


    As an Alaskan Eskmo with German mixed blood , I don`t think any other Americans feels the Government shut down more then we do up here in America`s farthest north city which is Barrow Alaska . We have B I A and are considered Indians , and we use to have the ricest oil deposits just in our backgrounds where we use to hunt and gather as true Natives of our great arctic lands which we fought for and lost to or great nation which we call United States of Ameica , To this day I stil feel apprehensive about the Federal Government involvement , I hear people cry for help while the rich get richer off the land or people who work hard doing minamal paying jobs which outsiders take gladly , how much must a man / woman make to live a good life and recieve good health benifits without breaking their bank books . I do mot believe in Congress anymore if they are just going to spend all their precious tme blaming each others while they should fight to keep our great Nation and put GOD before anything besides worry about their bank accounts while the rest of us suffer from being jobless and especially without health coverage , maybe just for 1 week they live in our shoes and feel how it is to be without food or a roof over thie heads . Come on Congress what happened to the oath you made when you were elected , or is it so bad that all the money you put away have clouded your better judgement and the AMERICAN PEOPLE whom you sworned to protect , America have become a dictatorship no a Monarchy in which our forfathers who fought for our freedom , Think of us as human beings not statistics .
