Pigford vs Glickman

Subject: Fw: Pigford vs Glickman


 In 1997, 400 African-American farmers sued the United States Department of
Agriculture, alleging that they had been unfairly denied SDA loans due to
racial discrimination during the period 1983 to 1997.

The case was entitled Pigford v. Glickman and in 1999, the black farmers won
their case.

The government agreed to pay each of them as much as $50,000 to settle their

But then on February 23, 2010, something shocking happened in relation to
that original judgment:
   In total silence, the USDA agreed to release more funds to Pigford.

The amount was a staggering...... $1.25 billion.  This was because the
original number of plaintiffs 400 black farmers had now swollen in a class
action suit to include a total of 86,000 black farmers throughout America .

There was only one problem:
     The United States of America  doesn't have 86,000 black farmers !!!!

                 According to accurate and totally verifiable  Official USDA
2007 Census census data, the total number of black farmers throughout
America is only 39,697.   by the  Official USDA 1992 Census data the US had
only 18,816 black farmers !

Well, how on earth did 39,697 explode into the fraudulent 86,000 claims ?

And how did $50,000 explode into $1.25 billion ?

Well, folks, you just have to ask the woman who not only spearheaded this
case because of her position in 1997 at the Rural Development Leadership
Network but whose family received the highest single payout (approximately
$13 million) from that action  Shirley Sherrod.

Yes, folks.    It appears that Ms. Sherrod had just unwittingly exposed
herself as the perpetrator of one of the biggest fraud claims in the United
States  - -  a fraud enabled solely because she screamed racism at the
government and cowed them into submission.    And it gets even more

Ms. Sherrod has also exposed the person who aided and abetted her in this
race fraud.   As it turns out, the original judgment of Pigford v. Glickman
in 1999 only applied to a total of about 16,000 black farmers.

    But.... in 2008, a junior US Senator got a law passed to reopen the case
and allow more black farmers to sue for funds.   The Senator was Barack
Hussein Obama.

Because this law was passed in dead silence and because the woman
responsible for spearheading it was an obscure USDA official, American
taxpayers did not realize that they had just been forced in the midst of a
worldwide depression to pay out more than $1.25 billion to settle a race

But Breitbart knew.    And last Monday, July 22, 2010, he cleverly laid a
trap which Sherrod  - -  and Obama + his cronies  - -  stumbled headfirst
into which has now resulted in the entire world discovering the existence of
this corrupt financial judgment.

As for Ms. Sherrod ??    Well, she, discovering too late that her cry of
racism to the media which was intended to throw the spotlight on Breitbart
has instead thrown that spotlight on herself and the huge corruption.

Sherrod has vanished from public view.   Her pigs, it seems, have come home
to roost.

But the perpetrator of that law passed in dead silence leading to unlawful
claims & corruption..... is still  trying to fool all of US.

       Google and read for yourself "Pigford vs. Glickman"

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.
It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him
their president."

It's time to clean house.

(...but we're totally not racist!)

The case

They re-heard cases that were closed because they had evidence but filed late.

Yet most still haven't been paid.

Um, okay -

Googled Pigford vs. Glickman.

Read Wikipedia entry.

Fail to see what above nonsense has to do with actual facts.

(Or was I not REALLY supposed to Google it, or actually read a website that had actual facts, but just take your word for it? Guess I'd make a bad right-winger...)

@ anon

You would be a terrible right winger. Don't you know that when someone's uncle/grandma/second cousin emails you a scary text with a lot of extra punctuation, you are just supposed to accept it 100% without question?

Breitbart has been repeatedly caught either embellishing the truth, distorting the truth, or outright lying.

Time to clean your own damned house.

Somehow the idea of extra money being awarded to people who are probably barely getting by otherwise doesn't bother me that much.

This is full of lies & distortion, as one can imagine, but it highlights why rightwing fabulist & scum-sucking bottom-dweller was paid off by the Powers that Be to create a completely phone made-up video of Shirley Sherrod.

There aren't as many black farmers in this class action as suit as this lying piece of racist junk would have you believe. And the Senate has consistenly refused to obey the Court's decision. The Senate's refusal to follow the law as set out by the Court has nothing to do with whether there's black farmers who are lying... it has everything to do with the wealthy billionaires in the Senate - along with their corporate Oligarch overlords - refusing to reimburse "small people" for what they justly deserve.

White racist reichwingers can dance with glee & joy to see blacks disinfranchised yet again from what's rightfully theirs. What these same stupid t-baggerz don't get is that when the Oligarchs decide to dump on the baggerz, it's not going to matter that: a) they're white, and b) they were dumb enough to endorse lying crap like this.
