President Obama Please Address My Employment Discrimination Case with Governor Cuomo

I have been waiting for President Obama’s reelection so that he could address my employment discrimination case and take action to make me whole. On November 15, 2012, President Obama received a bear hug from Andrew Cuomo. Therefore, I decided that today was a great day to bring employment discrimination in general and my employment discrimination case in particular to both of these elected officials of the Democratic Party.

 President Obama I am respectfully requesting that you and Governor Andrew Cuomo do the right thing and make me whole for NYS Attorney General's Office filing 7 perjured declaration in my employment discrimination case, firing me in retaliation for filing a lawsuit alleging discrimination, and denying the appeal of my disability retirement application. Therefore, I am entitled to back pay from my denied disability retirement application from New York State Department of Correctional Service.

I am also respectfully requesting that you use an executive order if necessary to amend Title VII (employment discrimination) of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 again like you did in Ledbedder's case. Amending the Act again will prevent one judge from have the authority to dismiss employment discrimination cases based on summary judgment motions.

I did this report to bring my true employment and retaliation case that includes the unjust denial of my disability retirement application (DRA) to the attention of Andrew Cuomo. In the past Governor Cuomo responded to my letter and email seeking redress and the approval of my the DRA by stating that as Attorney General of NY he couldn't help me. In his new role as governor he still hasn't contacted me or taken any action to make me whole.

Romney Can Americans Especially Hispanic Americans Trust You?

My question for Romney: How can Americans especially those Hispanic Americans who pay little or no taxes therefore are part of the 47 percent that you stated are government-dependent "victims" who believe they are "entitled" trust your October 2, 2012 position on the special visa issued by President Obama? On October 2, 2012, Romney stated to a writer at the Denver Post : "The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid. I am not going to take something that they purchased.” Before Romney latest flip flop he was against the Dream Act, Texas In a September 30, 2011, post on”the Hill” website featured a Mitt Romney’s primary web ad video, titled "Thank you Governor Perry.” The ad attacked Perry for stating during a debate that he supported in state tuition rates for immigrants’ children. ** Today October 2, 2012, the ad is no longer available online and is labeled private.

Is Romney, Rove, and Republican Governors Planning to Steal the 2012 Presidential Election?

Has Mitt Romney’s blind ambition to become president caused him to lose all sense or reality (joining Rove and Dick Morris that ALL the presidential polls are wrong); or is he showing the world that he is not fit to become president because he changes positions and facts at will; AND/OR has Rove and Republican governors of swing states PROMISED Romney like Jed Bush PROMISED George Bush Florida in 2000, that he is winning their states electoral college votes? WE THE PEOPLE can’t remain silent in 2012. We must demand a fair presidential election on November 6, 2012. Vera Richardson Author of Screwed by Former Governor and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer

President Obama’s 2012 Re-Election Will be More Historic than his 2008 Election


When Barack Obama ran for President in 2008, it was an historic election. The prospect of voting for America's first African-American president brought black folks to the polls who had never voted before. People voted early, stood in long lines, some were in wheelchairs or on walkers -- but the passion and enthusiasm were palpable in black communities across America.

The rights and opportunities that our ancestors marched for finally came to fruition on election night, November 4, 2008, when the votes were cast and the T.V. networks announced that Barack Obama had been elected the 44th President of the United States. Tears of joy were shed across America by young and old.

Some of us mistakenly thought that, with President Obama's election, we had finally arrived. We could take it easy and not have to press so hard for our rights to be affirmed.

We underestimated the backlash from the opposition. Those who did not vote for Obama and who thought a black man would never occupy the White House -- either through prejudice, ignorance or defiance of authority -- quickly rose up in anger and indignation. The Tea Party was formed and we've seen their influence on politics in general and the Republican Party, in particular.

In his September 24, 2011, speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, President Obama was speaking for me and to me when he said, “Throughout our history, change has often come slowly. Progress often takes time. I never promised easy. Easy has never been promised to us. But we’ve had faith. We have had faith. We’ve had that good kind of crazy that says you can’t stop matching.”

“Even when folks were hitting you over the head you can’t stop matching. Even when they’re turning the hoses on you, you can’t stop. Even when somebody fires you for speaking out, you can’t stop. Even when it looks like there’s no way, you find a way—you can’t stop. Through the mud and muck and the driving rain, we don’t stop. Because we know the rightness of our cause-widening the circle of opportunities, increasing each other’s prosperity. We know our cause is just. It’s a righteous cause.”

It will be difficult to duplicate the magic of the 2008 campaign, but we can't afford to sit down -- you have to put on your marching shoes once again and work to re-elect President Obama in 2012! You need to not only vote, but work in the trenches to put President Obama back in the White House for four more years.

Don't be fooled. With Republican legislatures around the country attempting to make voting more difficult in poor and minority communities, the election in 2012 matters more than ever!

Here's why President Obama's re-election is important:

1. He cares about ordinary people -- the poor, middle class and those hardest hit by the recession.

2. He can keep the right-wing forces from enacting discriminatory policies and enacting more voter suppression legistation across America.

3. He can appoint more federal and Supreme Court justices who are sensitive to the needs of blacks and other minorities.

4. The presence of the Obama First Family in the White House is an important positive symbol for our young people and others around the world.

5. America needs President Obama's continued outstanding foreign policy experience during an unstable international environment.

President Obama has instituted "Operation Vote" to make it easier for African-American communities to organize for 2012. What are you willing to do?

Here are some things you can do to help with President Obama's re-election:

1. Make sure you have the proper documents to vote by securing a state-issued driver's license or photo I.D., if you don't already have one.

2. Sign up as a voting registrar and register people to vote in your neighborhood.

3. Host a fundraiser for President Obama in your home or through one of your community organizations; and/or send a personal contribution to his re-election campaign online.

4. Post information via social media like Facebook and Twitter encouraging your friends to vote for President Obama's re-election.

5. Encourage your church or pastor to host voter registration drives.

6. Stay informed about the presidential election campaign by watching news broadcasts each day.

7. Voice you support for President Obama’s agenda and vision for this country on popular blog sites, radio and television websites, YouTube, and I-Reports.

8. Write letters to the editor or commentaries in support of President Obama and submit them to your local daily newspaper.

It will take a concerted effort from all of us to get President Obama re-elected. Put on your marching shoes and let's get to work!

Romney & Sons Loves Mormonism and Money but None Loved America Enough to Serve in the Military

Romney wants to have the authority, as Commander in Chief, to send our children and grandchildren to war although neither he nor his FIVE sons, all able bodied men, have ever served this nation by enlisting in its military. Romney and his FIVE sons have only paid lip service with their declarations of LOVE for America.  The Romney’s have demonstrated with their money donations and missions to their Mormon faith their LOVE of Mormonism.
Romney has also shown his LOVE of MONEY by making by most sources 250 million dollars as co-founder and according to documents filed with SEC SOLE owner of BAIN CAPITAL.  Mitt Romney and his wife have money in Swiss bank accounts and investments in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.  Therefore, we don’t have a reliable method to determine how much money is in the Romney’s off shore accounts.

An example to support my belief, that even if you are super rich and important, you can still serve and protect your country is Prince William and his brother Prince Harry. Unlike Mitt Romney and his FIVE sons, both of these young men served in their nations military.  In fact Prince William is currently serving asa search and rescue pilot in the Air Force.

I am an African-American female and my ONLY son served this nation as a military police officer in the Marine Corp for four years.

Why didn’t any of the Romney men find time in their lives or heart to serve this great nation? What does Mitt and his son value more the Mormon faith, money, or America's national security?  The fact that none have served in our military tells me and should tell you that the answer isn’t America’s national security.

Romney’s Birther Comment Racist and Tax Return Diversion?

Mitt Romney has already embraced and accepted help from Donald Trump, the number one birther, Therefore, I believe that Romney’s August 24, 2012, birth certificates remark was an attempt to divert attention from and/or to change the national dialogue from Romney’s tax returns and Bain Capital. After the strategy backfired because a large number of Americans were rightful outraged, Romney claimed that he was only "JOKING."
I truly believe that information contained in Romney’s tax returns will “DOOM” his efforts and the efforts of Karl Rove’s Super Pac American Crossroads, and Rove's Crossroads GPS to win and/or buy the presidency of the United States of America. The fact that Rove, who GAVE America and the world George W Bush,  is involved in this election and Mitt Romney won’t release his tax returns should scare the ‘HELL’  out of the voters. African-Americans, the poor, unemployed, and anyone who suffered during the greatest financial crisis of since the great depression should run to the polls and vote for President Obama.

Mitt can’t escape this issue at the very least he needs to release his 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011 tax returns so that voters can make an inform decision when they cast their vote on November 6, 2012.

Romney is WRONG: 2012 Poor Black People Working for Slave Wages in Houston

According to a pool report from Romney’s Hamilton, Montana fundraiser  held on July 11, 2012, Romney told donors: “if they (Obamacare supporters) want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy – more free stuff.”  Since making that statement Romney’s campaign strategy includes FALSE ATTACK campaign ads approved by Romney that accuses President Obama of removing WORK from welfare reform laws. In a post titled ” Romney's Race-Baiting Welfare Ads” on Huffington Post writer Mark Hannah stated that he believes the strategy appears to be racially motivated. I agree with Hannah.
Romney is wrong for using the false race baiting welfare ads and in his implication that “Obamacare” supporters want more free stuff from the government. As evident from this blog and video made with pictures taken in August 2012, poor people living in Houston, Texas are reporting for work at a day labor office between 5:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. They work until 12:00 p.m. or until the assignment is completed for an average net pay of 17 or 18 dollars.
The poor not only want to work but ARE working in Houston, Texas for wages that COULD be classified as violating the requirements of minimum wages laws and/or “SLAVE LABOR.” Romney isn’t the SOLUTION for the American economy. I believe that Romney and anyone who would take advantage of poor people, like the ones featured in this video, are part of the PROBLEM.

Vice President Biden APOLOGIZE!

Vice President Joe Biden should apologize immediately for his "back in chains" remark, made during a campaign event in Danville, Virginia on August 14, 2012 Based on this nation’s racial past, especially in Virginia, there is no defense of Biden’s comment other than a sincere apology. His apology should include a statement that he misspoke and that his comment doesn’t reflect the view(s) and/or beliefs of President Obama.
This story should have ended yesterday August 14, 2012. We know that there is a double standard on race issues in this country. President Obama’s brilliant campaign team has launched a winning offensive campaignThis election is too important for this nation and the world to let a slip of the tongue or a mistake derailed President Obama’s chances for reelection. DOES the Democratic Party want to win the election on November 6, 2012, or win this unnecessary BIDEN'S latest news making GAFFE.
APOLOGIZE NOW and continue to march this election and this nation FORWARD!

Congressman Paul Ryan: Mitt Romney’s Poor Vice Presidential Selection

Neither Romney nor Paul Ryan have any experience or expertise in foreign affairs and neither are capable of responding to a 3:00 AM call from anywhere around the world. The above mentioned fact is an example of Romney’s desperation and inability to make sound decisions were exhibited when he selected his Vice Presidential candidate Congressman Ryan Paul. Just like John McCain in 2008 Romney first presidential decision is inexcusable and poor. The future of America and the world depends on the leader of the free world being able to lead, make sound decision, and respond to emergencies and crisis around the world.  Romney is not that guy and will be defeated on November 6, 2012.

Rally of Striking Houston Janitors in 100 Degree Temperature for $10.00 Hour Pay

Updated 8/14/2014 President Obama needs Hispanic and African Americans to unite and vote on 11/4/2014 like most of us did 11/6/2012.  If we do we will not only save his legacy 2009-2015 but we will save ourselves and our children.  Immigration Reform, equality, jobs, education, Supreme Court appointments, a future Hispanic American being elected as President all hang in the balance. We can have it all if we volunteer, GOTV, Vote, and donate for the Democratic Party.

Houston janitors are striking to increase their pay from a top wage of $8.35 per hour to $10.00 per hour. On August 1, 2012, my life’s path crossed the lives of these hard working men and women. Prior to my arrival and at a different location several of the people participating in the match and rally were arrested during the event. Therefore I attended the rally and videotaped part of it to give their cause and poor people a voice. My ongoing commentary in the video includes encouraging and discussing the importance of voting for Democratic candidates.
The fact that the janitors clean the offices of corporations and banks like Shell Oil, Wells Fargo, and JP Morgan had to strike for $10.00 a hour pay is unacceptable to me.  Despite record profits and inflated CEO pay, janitors who clean Houston's office buildings are paid less than $9,000 a year—less than half the poverty level.
PR Newswire (
The Houston janitors are members of Service Employees International Union “SEIU.” The event, which occurred when the temperature was 100 degrees, included members of the SEIU from across the nation to show their support of the Houston janitors who engaged in one day strikes this year before going on strike the night of July 10, 2012.

According to one of the speakers at the rally SEIU union will be sit down at the bargaining table with the Area Contractors Association on August 2, 2012.

My Grandson Jeremiah’s Pre-exiting Heart Condition Is Covered Under Obamacare

President Obama's determination to keep his 2008 campaign pledge to reform health care in this nation resulted in him signing the Affordable Health Care Act "Obamacare" on March 23, 2010. The hard three year fight led by President Obama ended with the Supreme Court’s decision that upheld the constitutionality of The Affordable Health Care Act.

 The “Obamacare” victory is important to the 30 million uninsured Americans who will now have the opportunity to have health care coverage. It is also a personal victory for me and families like mine that have a family member with a pre-existing condition. My grandson Jeremiah who has a pre-existing heart condition can’t be denied health care coverage. This is a big f---- deal for me because Jeremiah, who is 9 years old, will need his fourth open heart surgery at age 12 or 13 years old. Additionally, insurance companies can't deny him a health care policy as an adult.

Why is Mayor Bloomberg Determination to Force President Obama into Gun Control Debate?

Dear Mayor Bloomberg: What is your political motivation and aspirations that require you to force President Obama to engage in a gun control debate now?  Who are you supporting and/or voting for on November 6, 2012?  Why are you inserting yourself on the national stage at this time?
On the Morning Joe Show on July 23, 2012, you stated your determination to continue to require that gun control become an issue before the presidential election. You stated that approximately 48,000 Americans will lose their lives due to illegal gun violence during the next presidential term.  Have you consider the 30 million Americans that Romney and his party have pledged to deny health care insurance by repealing Obamacare?  Have you considered the millions of Americans like my grandson Jeremiah, who has a pre-existing heart condition, not being able to purchase a health care policy during their lifetime?  Every life is important in America but the 48,000 lives that you used to justify your action(s) pales in comparison to the number of Americans who could die during the next four years if President Obama is defeat and/or the Affordable Health Care Act is repealed

Is Judge Lester’s Decision to Grant Bail to Zimmerman Again Racially Motivated?

Why would Judge Lester grant bail to Zimmerman again on July 5, 2012, after his own court order supports denying that action? In his ruling Lester wrote about the first bond hearing and noted an undisclosed second passport kept in Zimmerman's safe deposit box. In Judge Lester's order he noted that George possibly committed third degree perjury but still granted bail. 

I believe that Judge Lester’s decision to grant bail to George Zimmerman a second time is an abuse of judiciary discretion and is political and/or racially motivated.
George is charged with second degree murder and is on video tape lying to investigators at the complex where he murder Trayvon. Zimmerman lies several times when he stated that the 911 dispatched asked him several times to give an address where they could find the person George labeled as suspicious and looking like he was up to no good.

We know that Geoge killed Trayvon because he admitted that fact.  We know that George is a liar who has knowledge of Criminal Justice and highly probality that he will be found guilty of murder and/or violating Trayvon Martin's civil rights.  He also has the financial means and a family member mother
I believe that Judge Lester like the Sanford Police Department mishandled the Trayvon Martin murder case. Judge Lester’s discussion that downplayed Zimmerman’s two prior criminal encounters with the law,  granting bail at $100,000 from the bench immediately after the first bail hearing and his latest decision to grant bail again in this case supports my belief. Lester should recuse himself from this case and/or the United States Justice Department should charge Zimmerman if there is evidence to support a conviction that Zimmerman violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.

If the Supreme Court Overturn Obamacare it Will Leave Millions of Americans HOPELESS

I believe that overturning Obamacare by the United States Supreme Court will be a national tragedy because it will leave tens of millions of Americans HOPELESS.  The 30 million Americans who will not gain health care coverage and the millions of minorities in this country who depend on the Court to protect the rights of all Americans will lose faith and HOPE that the Court is a non-partisan third branch of government.

How could we trust the Court to protect our constitutional rights regardless of color, religion, sex, and political party affiliation if they overturn this nation’s first African-American president’s signature accomplishment? How would our children make sense of recorded history that includes five conservatives Supreme Court Justices who were appointed by Republican presidents overturning the unprecedented health care reform bill?

Judge Lester Should Revoke Zimmerman’s Bail for Lying in Court

Judge Lester’s discussion that downplayed Zimmerman’s two prior criminal encounters withthe law, allow Zimmerman’s father, mother, and wife to testify over the phone about his finances and criminal history, grant bail without requesting bank statements and/or mortgage documents to verified if Zimmerman or his family were indigent, and to issue his decision from the bench to release George Zimmerman on $150, 000 after Zimmerman committed perjury minutes before his unjust ruling  when he said he thought Martin was about his age (28 years old) can be attribute to Lester being incompetent and/or bias towards Zimmerman being found not quilty.
In an article  on New Channel 5 website  “Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda asked Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. to increase Zimmerman's $150,000 bond. But the judge said he would delay ruling on the request, in part because he does not know if he has the authority to do so. Lester said he is also concerned about revealing the names of donors. "I'm not going to make a snap decision," Lester said.”   If Lester doesn’t have the authority to increase Zimmerman’s bond who does?  Why didn’t the Assistant Attorney Bernie de la Rionda ask to have Zimmerman’s bond revolt and have him returned to jail immediately?

In order for this case to have the appearance of fairness Judge Lester needs to revolt Zimmerman’s bail and remand him back to a local jail.  Additionally Zimmerman safety and the safety of the community can be better accomplished if he is locked up until the end of his jury trial.

My Reactions to Judge Lester Granting Bail to Zimmerman

On April 20, 2012, I was outraged that Zimmerman was granted bail of $150,000. The first words out of my mouth after Judge Ken Lester issued his order from the bench granting Zimmerman bail after her heard Zimmerman commit perjury in his court room was “Oh my God” which I repeated three times follow by “what a miscarriage of justice.”
I am an educated victim of racial discrimination and the American judiciary system.  Today, I am convinced that justice will be denied by Judge Ken Lester to Trayvon Martin, his family, and all people who demanded the arrest of Martin’s murderer George Zimmerman.

Mitt Romney: Release Your Past Tax Returns Now!

A few days ago Mitt Romney exercised his right and filed a six month extension to file his 2011 tax return. Since Romney has already released his 2010 tax return and if he doesn’t have anything to hide he should release copies of his tax returns for previous tax years of 2005-2009. Releasing additional past tax returns is one of the ways for voters to make an informed decision before casting their votes for or against Mitt Romney on November 6, 2012.

President Obama called on Mitt Romney to release his past tax returns: “I think that it’s important for any candidate in public office to be as transparent as possible, to let people know who we are, what we stand for, and you know, I think that this is just carrying on a tradition that has existed throughout the modern presidency.” I agree with President Obama’s statement.

Beyond Trayvon Martin: A Spoken Word Poet Shares his Thoughts

In an April 10, 2012, article titled “The Trayvon Martin and Tulsa Shootings: The Time for Inaction Is Over” Sharpton wrote in part: “There are some in positions of power that would like nothing more than to make us believe that racism, classism and other inequities don't exist. But they do. And the only way to combat them, and stop our nation from reverting back to days when the Trayvon and Tulsa shootings were the norm, is to have an honest dialogue and most importantly, take action. The worst thing we can do is come together and walk away doing nothing. There is far too much at risk.” 
The young spoken word poet is taking action by speaking out about Trayvon's murder.  I am taking action by posting blogs and videos that support President Obama and his vision of equality and justice for all Americans. 

What are action(s) are you doing and/or planning on doing to stop our nation from reverting back to days when the Trayvon and Tulsa shootings were the norm?  You can take action by engaging in the political process during the 2012 presidential election. If you can afford it donate money and/or your time working to re-elect President Obama. Even more importantly you must vote on November 6, 2012, and in every local, state, and national election during the rest of your lives. Change won't come easily but it will come if we continue to match, vote, and build on what President Obama started during his first term as this nation's first African-American president.

We Were Warned by Republican Presidential Candidates who Hated "ObamaCare" and Planed to Kill It Dead

The Republicans disapproval of the Affordable Health Care Act hasn't changed since the Health Care debate. The Republican presidential candidates promised to repeal Obamacare. 

The Supreme Court upheld most of the provisions in the Affordable Health Care Act and Mitt Romney lost the 2012 Presidential election. Yet as of September 30, 2013, the Republicans won't pass a budget bill unless Obamacare is denied funding or delayed. 

Speaker Boehner and Senator Cruz's Obamacare positions is racist and/or an abuse of  power by the GOP to overrule the will voters who elected Barack Obama in 2008/2012 and the thirty million Americans who will finally have health care as a right and not a privilege.

My Grandson’s Jeremiah’s Health and Life Depends on Obamacare!

UPDATE: Jeremiah is now 10 years old and has dreams of becoming a police officer like his uncle. Due to his heart condition that dream will not come true for Jeremiah.
In the following picture Jeremiah is acting as a "cop" wearing a bullet proof vest and pretending that the plastic toy gun he is holding is a real gun. This particular dream will not become Jeremiah's reality.  The Affordable Care Act "ObamaCare" will allow him to have insurance coverage during his entire lifetime so that he can live a productive life.  As a sweet loving boy he will live to have and accomplish other dreams for his life that at this time includes getting married to a pretty woman.
Original Post

My grandson Jeremiah will be nine years old soon. Prior to his birth an ultrasound revealed that he would have Tetralogy of Fallot, which is a heart defect where there are 4 different things wrong with the heart. Jeremiah has had three open heart surgeries because his body or heart outgrows the corrective procedures. He has been very fortunate because all of his medical expenses including the one million dollars cost of his first open heart surgery at three weeks old were covered by good health insurance.

He will need another open heart surgery at age 11-13. The Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) makes it possible for Jeremiah to have health coverage with his heart condition. What will happen to my precious grand boy if the Supreme Court overturns the entire  health care reform bill?

President Obama Accomplished Amazing Things During His 2008 Term

This video is awesome and gives an inside look at some of the tough calls President Obama made to get our country back on track. When President Obama is re-elected he will have the opportunity to really make this nation a more just and equal nation for all of its citizens including minorities. President Obama needs four more years to deliver the change that we voted for in 2008. Therefore, we should be pro-active and do everything that is legally possible to ensure that the change we voted for in 2008 continues.

Democrats Living in Michigan Vote for Rick Santorum on February 28, 2012!


African-Americans should go out in record numbers for a Republican primary today and vote for Rick Santorum.  We must remember that this election is really the GOP’s true Waterloo moment in history. If and when President Obama is re-elected he will have the opportunity to really make this nation a more just and equality nation for all of its citizens including minorities. Therefore, we should be pro-active and do everything that is legally possible including voting in the GOP primaries for Rick Santorum to help President Obama get re-elected.

Rick Santorum’s campaign is seeking Democratic voters to come out to vote for him during the February 28, 2012, MI primary. I am respectfully requesting that all eligible voters especially African and Hispanic Americans who support President Obama and his vision of equality and justice for all Americans go out and vote today for Rick Santorum. This request is based on my belief that Rick would be an easier opponent for President Obama to defeat on November 6, 2012.

If you don't know where to vote find your polling place on Rick Santorum's website.

President Obama, Lilly Ledbetter, and Vera Richardson

On January 29, 2009, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act. According to the New York Times: “In signing the bill, Mr. Obama said that it sends the message "that there are no second class citizens in our workplaces, and that it's not just unfair and illegal, it's bad for business to pay someone less because of their gender or their age or their race or their ethnicity, religion or disability."

I hope and pray that President Obama will take a similar interest in my case and act in a similar fashion. I hope that he doesn’t let politics prevent him from addressing racial employment discrimination that involves Democratic Party members Eliot Spitzer and  Governor Andrew Cuomo.

As of today’s date Andrew Cuomo has ignored my pleas for justice and peace. I hope that as leader of the Democratic Party Pres Obama contacts Cuomo and request that he investigates my case, the unjust denial of the appeal of my disability retirement application, and makes me whole by reversing that denial and reward me much needed back pay from that appeal.

Like Lilly, Vera Richardson, was a victim of employment discrimination. Ledbetter and women groups were encouraged by the signing of the bill named in her honor. Vera and African-Americans victimized by unlawful employment discrimination will be encouraged and motivated to participate in the November 6, 2012, presidential election if the defendants and attorneys on record in Richardson’s case and tens of thousands of other employment discrimination cases are held accountable for their unfair and illegal actions.

Mitt Romney is Wrong President Obama's Policies Made the Economy Better Not Worse

On February 3, 2012, during a 2012 Presidential campaign event, Mitt Romney stated that “President Obama didn’t cause the recession but that he made it worse.” The great economic news on the same day of Romney's statement including the following facts: an 8.3 percent unemployment rate which is the lowest since 2008, 243,000 private sector jobs were created in January 2012, and the Dow Jones reaching its highest level (12,862 points) since 2009 makes Romney’s statement false. Note to Romney: “You are entitled to his own opinions but he isn’t entitled to his own FACTS.”
