Michelle J. Douglass Esq. Blanche Morro
By: Michelle J. Douglass Esq.
In October 2010, Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey began plans for re-branding by adopting a Roaring Twenties theme. However, this transformation of Resorts has fueled litigation over a host of legal claims for illegal and discriminatory employment practices. Recently, Blanche Morro, known as “Blanche the Singing Bartender” reported health and safety hazards due to renovations within Resorts Casino to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In less than a month Resorts had eliminated her position as Atlantic City's Only Singing, Multi-tasking Bartender. Blanche the Singing Bartender had a bar dedicated, built and named for her by the President of Resort Operations, Mr. Dennis Gomes. Mr. Gomes witnessed her abilities, and gave her a "free hand" to market and innovate this new and unique talent where she hosted at Resorts’ 25 Hours Bar and Lounge. While singing and operating the karaoke machine, Blanche took and prepared drink orders by reading customers’ lips, never missing a beat. She quickly garnered national media attention and even appeared on the formerly syndicated "Rosie O'Donnell Show". In its hasty attempts at self-reinvention, Resorts has abandoned many standard safety precautions. Jack hammers drilling into concrete and the careless removal of decades-old carpeting resulted in the release of toxic fumes within the casino. In April 2013 Blanche tried to no avail to get Resorts to take proper measures to protect the health of its workers. In May 2013, her concerns to Resorts falling on deaf ears, Blanche filed an official complaint to OSHA. Blanche became ill and her vocal cords were severely damaged from breathing in the toxic fumes. Forced to take a medical leave under the Family Medical Leave Act, within weeks Blanche was advised that her position as the Singing Bartender had been “eliminated.” She intends to file a lawsuit against Resorts and is presently represented by The Douglass Law Firm, a boutique practice in Northfield, specializing in employment and civil rights law. But Blanche is not the only former Resorts employee to fall victim to the casino’s shady employment practices.
In June 2012, Atlantic City resident, Shakeia Green, an African American female, was fired from Resorts after a background check erroneously found criminal convictions for drug offenses in the State of Florida. Green, a single mother of two, who also operates a New Jersey licensed children’s day care, had been working part-time as a Resorts security guard in an attempt to make ends meet. Ms. Green has never even been to Florida and has never been convicted of a criminal offense in her life. Indeed, she operates day care for which she is required to pass a rigorous background check by the State of New Jersey. The person Resorts actually obtained information on, Shakia Green, with a different first name spelling also had a different social security number and date of birth. Ms. Green immediately brought this to the attention of Resorts and had the Atlantic City Police Department assist her by calling Resorts to inform them that this Ms. Green was not the Ms. Green that Resorts had obtained the criminal information. Resorts refused to take the call. The Fair Credit Reporting Act requires employers to conduct accurate background investigations. If the employer plans to take adverse employment action based on information obtained in the investigation, it must provide that information to the employee to allow for the correction of any false information. Ms. Green, also represented by The Douglass Law Firm, has filed a lawsuit for Fair Credit Reporting Act violations against Resorts. Resorts did a shoddy job on the background check by not verifying any of the information to confirm whether the information about Ms. Green was accurate. It wasn’t. These employee violations fall on the heels of yet another controversial employee lawsuit. Resorts came under fire in April 2011 after fifteen older and middle-aged cocktail waitresses, some of them longtime employees, were fired after they "did not look good enough" in revealing new uniforms introduced as part of the resort's Twenties makeover. Several former employees filed a pending discrimination lawsuit against the company for the incident. Has the desire to create a new image led Resorts to disregard the civil rights of its female employees? Has the casino’s Roaring Twenties theme spilled over to its treatment of its female employees ? It appears Resorts has brought back not only the style of the age, but also its working conditions.

Chris Chistie-Governor of New Jersey
Chris Christie has been a media born political entity. He has been an average Governor, while balancing NJ's budget, he has failed to take a more proactive stance to the rebuilding of NJ's damage from the devasataing storm Sandy after many months. He uses the phrase " Stronger than the storm " as his credo but that implies that he's stonger than God...the storm was an act of God.
He is difficult to describe, he finally listened to the medical communty and made a respectable decision for surgery to reduce his weight, he seems very charming and sincere but has a mouth which he can't seem to control when angered.
Is he presidential material? We shall within the next few months and continue this article. New Jersey is one of the most corrupt states in the country and he is a former U.S.District Attorney but NJ is still the shame of the country from my perspective as I try to create 2 million jobs for the people of this country...which would generate 50-100,000 jobs for NJ. New York chased organized crime out of it's borders but the seems to have landed in NJ. Corporations are well aware of this and are bailing out of NJ for more asthetic locations as am I.
It takes a true leader to lead a state or country...most politicians are in it for the money or their egos, sucking up the power trip and doing nothing or joining the corrupt and taking bribes, kickbacks...etc. What makes a true leader? Honesty, Honor and the well being of the people.
The drug cartels are buying everyone they can and illegal immigration is at an all time high in NY & NJ. The country in in a " sequester" which is another name for depression. The poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer.
Is the American Dream dead? I hope not.
Appellate Court Rejects Christie Administration's Raid on Trust Funds
In a decision issued this afternoon, a three-judge Appellate Division panel prohibited the state from taking $165 million in housing trust funds that are needed to recover from Hurricane Sandy. The funds, which non-profits intend to use to build over 3000 homes for Sandy victims, people with special needs, and working families, cannot be seized by the state without the state following a process established in the court's decision. The court vacated a May 1, 2013 process initiated by the Council on Affordable Housing at the request of the Christie Administration.
"The Appellate Division rightly stopped the Christie Administration's attempt to seize these funds," said Kevin D. Walsh, Associate Director of Fair Share Housing Center. "This is a victory for people displaced by Hurricane Sandy and the thousands of people with special needs on long waiting lists for homes."
The court found that COAH's attempt to seize the funds ignored basic notions of due process and was inconsistent with COAH's mission of making homes affordable. Because of COAH's failures, the court felt it was forced to create a process for COAH to follow.
Going forward, the court's order requires that interested parties, including community organizations and municipalities be provided with notice that funds may be seized, followed by a 30-day period to respond. The state must then issue a determination in response to the information it receives and provide another 15-day period for responses. Thereafter, the board must meet to decide whether funds will be seized, with interested parties still having the right to an individual appeal of any determinations made by the state. COAH thus cannot seize any funds for at least the next 45-60 days, stopping the Administration's attempt to take all of the money as quickly as possible.
The court's order is available here: http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/coah_order.pdf
More information regarding the Administration's attempt to raid the trust fund is available on our blog at http://www.fairsharehousing.org/blog.
Fair Share Housing Center, founded in 1975, is based in Cherry Hill. It is the only public interest organization devoted entirely to defending the housing rights of New Jersey's poor through implementing the Mount Laurel doctrine, which requires that each municipality provides its fair share of housing affordable to low- and moderate-income people.
20 Fun Things To Do On An Elevator While Bored
Next time you're on an elevator and feel alittle bored, liven up the moment with some of these insightful ideas. Guaranteed to make heads turn or your money back.
When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.
Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor you're on.
Swat at flies that don't exist.
Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering, "Shut up, all of you, just shut up!"
Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, "Got enough air in there?"
Lay down a Twister mat and ask people if they'd like to play.
Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on, ask them if they hear something ticking.
Ask if you can push the button for other people, but push the wrong ones.
Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.
Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
Stare, grinning at another passenger for a while, and then announce, "I have new socks on."
Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, "This is my personal space!"
Fart loudly then exclaim "Was that you. There's no way I could do that one because unfortately mine don't come out loud."
Before the elevator door opens shout "DING" and then laugh and say "beat you again Mr Elevator."
Stand really close to someone, sniffing them occasionally.
Hire a labrador, wear sunglasses and repeatedly walk into the walls whilst pretending to not hear the other passenger's direction.
Drop a pen and wait until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream, "that's mine!"
Hold the doors open and say you're waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say, "Hi Greg. How's your day been?"
Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce in horror, "You're one of THEM!" and back away slowly.
IS THE U.S SUPREME COURT CHIEF JUSTICE FIT FOR DUTY ?
Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court of the United States of America is solely responsible for every judge in America by definition of his title. Of course the other eight justices are supposed to help him as honor would dictate. No wonder he has seizures. After enduring Judge Renquist and his alleged addiction to percodans, morphine, etc.. for so many years , I thought the country would get back on track towards prosperity. My question is…he has had two documented seizures, how many undocumented ones has he had and is he able to perform his duties. He sits in a very critical position as head of the Judiciary and it is hard to walk away from that much power.
However, I have practiced law pro se for over thirty years and have had the fortunate privledge of meeting with thousands of judges and attorneys. In fact I have put one on my “ fuggliest “ woman on earth list in the magazine. Her lack of decorum and the fact that she conspired with a someone with suspected terrorist ties and whom had at least two “ partners” whom were placed in prison, one under the RICO Act leads me to believe Justice Roberts may have fried his brain. I have practiced at every level of state and federal courts, including the U. S, Supreme Court and have never seen a judge rant, rave, yell, go on tangents on the record and halt Court when another buddy judge stops in. O course this have been due to the fact her husband, an attorney, had legal issues. Of course her being a judge had no influence on the outcome of that matter. “ FUGGLY” The there is the Administrative Judge who gave her the job…but he’s suspected of senility. Also, in his infinite wisdom, the Chief Justice of New Jersey appointed an individual to assist in creating and enforcing laws for debt collection, guess who now owns the nations largest debt collection company? Does anyone but me here see a conflict of interest and bad judgment? But then the current chief justice replaced a justice that had an alleged panty fetish.
Now if the U.S. Chief Justice is unable to control the judges of America and the judges can’t control the attorneys, nor themselves…where does that leave the people? Well if you read my articles, the “ fuggly” judge allegedly committed treason and other crimes Now if it walks like a duck, quacks like duck and looks like a duck…it’s a duck ! Justice Roberts, if you can hear, read or hear about me, please explain or step down from the bench. PLEASE take the other eight with you.

Hypothetically, lets suppose there is man who has a plan to create over four trillion dollars in economic development and enough jobs to employ 10% of the Americas population and millions of jobs worldwide. That is more than the top ten corporations in the world combined.
He is holding back hundreds of patents that could advance technology and other industries for years to come.
Would this man be considered evil or a boon to mankind? Should he be protected by national security as there are many who se him as a threat to their corrupt, evil lives and the power that they wield?
There are many corrupt factions such as organized crime, cartels, corrupt politicians and governmental agencies that see him as a threat and have no qualms in doing everything possible to hold onto their positions of power over the people worldwide.
Again hypothetically, suppose this man would end world hunger, destitution and atrocities now being committed all over the world.
Would those who oppose him be considered traitors to their respective countries, committing acts of treason to feed their greed and maintain their chokehold on those they control? Corporate CEOs that would make Bernie Maddoff’s crimes look like misdemeanors.
He is a spiritual man who believes in God and respects all religions that propagate peace. He has seen many sights that leave no doubt in his belief and believes God is watching over us. He believes in science and physics and that they mesh with all religious teachings.
He has shared his plan with Congresspersons, presidents, royalty, and the best worldwide financial minds. They believe in him and are slowly overcoming his opposition with conviction and the help of God.
When will society be conducive to the big breakthrough? Soon I think as the mental walls of corruption and tyranny fall as the must. One cannot employ millions of psychotics and manic depressive created by faction that force them to do things that they know is wrong deep in their heart and souls to keep a job that they need to support their families. Some are driven insane by this mental dilemma and snap under the guilt of harming others for the sake of money. Others are depressed at having to make minimum wage when they have college degrees and are living on a shoestring or on public assistance to survive.
The persons whom are aware of the plan and are eager to see it’s fruition as the jobs promised start around fifty thousand per year, are horrified at the lack of action by Homeland Security, FBI, and other state and federal agencies and are starting to realize just how far the corruption lies and the high ranking individuals involved.
Judges and lawyers are the deadliest of them all as the deal directly with the public.
So, this hypothetical man has to sit and wait for the “ good guys “ to do their jobs and win the day for the people and actions by the everyday people can make a large difference using the whistleblower laws to prevent the further rape of our countries. We are supposed to be a democracy but are we? When employers or wealthy political action groups tell us how to vote.
Freud said self analysis is the key to mental health and that to be goal oriented leads to a good life. Hard to argue with him on that.
Obviously, I am that hypothetical man. I pray that I never see another person snap and walk into a school and murder innocent children nor see God lay waste to billions of dollars of damages and peoples lives.
We all die, must we leave a horrific future for our children….possibly a war that ends the world? Those that believe in God have had about enough and the apathy or cowardice of the people we entrusted with our future with will end.
God Bless All The “ Good Guys “.
Future of Fair Housing in New Jersey at Stake
N.J. Supreme Court to Hear Argument
The New Jersey Supreme Court has scheduled oral argument in In re N.J.A.C. 5:96 and 5:97, the most important fair housing case in New Jersey in three decades, for Wednesday, November 7 at 10 a.m. at the Hughes Justice Complex in Trenton. With 60,000 families, seniors, and people with special needs living in homes that resulted from Mount Laurel and another 40,000 homes in the pipeline, the stakes could not be higher.
The case raises the basic question of whether municipalities may choose to keep out homes that lower-income families, seniors, and people with special needs can afford simply because they do not want them there. A broad and unusual array of groups - ranging from Fair Share Housing Center to the NAACP and Latino Action Network to special needs organizations to New Jersey's Catholic Charities to the Housing and Community Development Network, New Jersey Future, and the American Planning Association to the New Jersey Builders Association and other business groups - have asked the Supreme Court to affirm existing law and require that every municipality allow for its fair share of homes affordable to low- and moderate-income people.
The groups on the other side of the case - Governor Christie and wealthy municipalities - ask the Supreme Court to overturn four decades of fair housing law. Governor Christie, speaking last week in Mount Laurel, the town that gave rise to New Jersey's landmark fair housing litigation, made his objectives clear in calling Mount Laurel a "stupid case." His request to the Court is to allow him to "freely look at and adopt alternative methods for meeting the Mount Laurel doctrine" without having to comply with past court decisions. Governor Christie has already made it clear what that "alternative method" would be: allowing municipalities to adopt any form of exclusionary zoning they wish, and allowing any remaining fair housing obligation to be "met" by paying a $10,000 fee instead of actually building a home. He, and wealthy municipalities allied with him, ask the Court to put their stamp of approval on supposedly "meeting" the state's fair housing laws by overturning them - essentially seeking a route around the Legislature and prior court decisions, both of which have maintained that municipalities cannot use their zoning as a tool of exclusion.
A recent Princeton University study found that families moving into Mount Laurel homes experienced better success at jobs and significantly better educational outcomes for their kids. Either tens of thousands of New Jerseyans will also have those opportunities in the future - or they will be told by the Supreme Court, as the Mayor of Mount Laurel told the African-American community that brought the original suit - "If you people can't afford to live in our town, you'll just have to leave."
Never mind that the reason why housing is unaffordable in New Jersey, according to a slew of academic studies [Lincoln Institute for Land Policy, Red Tape and Housing Costs, Rowan University] is because many wealthier towns block the development of modestly-priced homes by using their zoning code to control who can move into town. That is hardly a legitimate role for government, but that is what Gov. Christie and his allies from some of the state's wealthiest municipalities claim is the right thing to do.
On November 7, we are going to urge the Supreme Court to reject the policy advocated by the governor and the wealthier municipalities and to uphold Mount Laurel and its promise of fairness in housing today and for future generations.

I have had an employment plan via worldwide franchises that starts with 2 million union jobs and other non union jobs waiting for the Judges in Monmouth County, New Jersey sitting in Court for seven years to go to trial against an attorney and an immigrant and his wife Kevin and Deborah Byrne for the theft of millions of dollars which is intended to be my start up money for the franchises. The attorney was disbarred and went to prison for 6 years ( James O’Brien ) and two other Court Appointed attorneys, Jerold Zaro and Bunce Atkinson stole funds ( millions of dollars ) from a Ponzi scheme that cost my company nearly a half million dollars ( they are being investigated in New York for the loss of their licenses and after that I have documentation from the NJ Supreme Court Ethics Committee that they will be disbarred in NJ). In the meantime, I can’t provide 2-12 million jobs nationwide. These jobs have and the franchises have a finance package that was acceptable to the parties and I am sure that they will still honor their commitments if not add to the amounts which is in the region of 2-4 billion dollars. Of course I have documentation to back all of this and most is public record. The corruption of the Monmouth County legal society is criminal and the same goes for the state government. I have contacted the FBI, State and Federal Attorney Generals and at that time under Governor Corzine did nothing. In all fairness, I have not contacted Governor Christie and have received some help from Senator Lautenberg. Corzine did nothing.
It has come to my attention that there is a group seeking to use the current financial circumstances to break the unions. This will never happen. If you read my family's relationship with the unions going back to the first unions in the 1800s, you will know I will only hire union workers. In fact all union members in the USA should BOYCOTT NEW JERSEY.. Screw Atlantic City, the Jersey Shore and not buy or locate your businesses in New Jersey. On a Worldwide scale...you should do your share and not do business with New Jersey.
I have been patient hoping the Courts will come through but no more. I am ready to file suit vs New Jersey and the Federal Government for gross negligence. To give you an example, each franchise is 100‘ x 200‘ an 144‘ tall = a 330,000 square foot commercial building. each building would supply up to 10,000 permanent jobs plus the union building crews. the outlying jobs would be in the 100's of thousands and local businesses would prosper greatly. I want to build 500 of these buildings in the USA and 1500 Worldwide. People would prosper, governments would make tax revenues and everyone would be happy. The only reason the people are suffering - Blame New Jersey! Boycott New Jersey

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2011
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

Beware of Allstate Auto Insurance Co.
" You're in dirty hands with Allstate"
It was a beautiful day in March’09. I was driving back from a function where the Monmouth County Fair Housing Board, of which I am a member, was judging posters from 6th grader’s that depicted what “ Fair Housing “ meant to them. I was doing a photo shoot of the judging of the finalists. Traveling home I came up to a light on the highway that turned green as I drove the speed limit of 50mph. A large semi truck and trailer was in the left hand lane stopped at the light ( blocking my view of oncoming traffic ) and he started going forward with the green light and suddenly stopped. I was upon the intersection when I saw why he stopped. A “ type A “ driver in a little sports car sped through the light making a left hand turn trying to beat him through the light apparently he didn’t have the patience to yield as the law required and was in a hurry.
The Nightmare Begins
I didn’t have time to hit my brakes before hitting his car in it’s rear axle, throwing me so close to my windshield that I could count his lug nuts. The ensuing crash was the most violent car accident I have ever been in. My seatbelt cut into my chest and I was jerked so hard that my already injured back , neck, arms and wrists took the full force of the collision when I braced myself for impact.
My insurance company was Allstate and his New Jersey Manufactures. The police arrived shortly and ticketed him for careless driving. Of course he was found 100% at fault. I was in shock and had my bell rung by the accident but since I wasn’t bleeding, I turned down medical treatment, literally taped my bumper, headlight assembly and whatever back onto my Jeep ( I love Jeeps, they are built like tanks) and proceeded home by instinct. Once home, I notice severe pain in my back, neck, wrists and more and called a friend to take me to the hospital which revealed extensive damage to my body from the impact.
I notified Allstate who told me to call New Jersey Manufactures Co. to settle the auto damage while I started seeing Dr.s for my injuries…I guess they couldn’t be troubled representing me as I paid them to do. From there it has been a nightmare dealing with Allstate ( which is supposed to represent me ) which despite tests, MRIs X-rays and physical exams by specialists which clearly showed the injuries sustained, decided to fight me at every turn. Allstate brought in Dr.s that didn’t even see me to deny treatments ordered by the specialists, gave me a prescription card and assured me they would pay for all of my medications which they never did save $120 out of thousands of dollars which I had to pay for. I sit now waiting for my attorneys to litigate to get medical treatments ordered by not only my Dr. but Allstate’s Dr.s as well. This was the first accident I have ever been in wherein I was injured. On my first visit to an Orthopedic Surgeon, he warned me about Allstate and told me I was going to get an “ education” in corrupt insurance companies. He was right. Due to the accident and injuries I took a fall, broke 3 ribs and collapsed a lung. The medical personnel at the hospital told me I could have died. Allstate could care less. They inserted a tube in my chest to re-inflate the lung and kept me in the hospital for 6 days and $50,000. I share this experience with the public to warn them not only of Allstate Auto Ins. But the entire insurance industry. They feel they would save money if the victims died and could care less about the injured making them menaces to the public. I sincerely hope someone starts putting these psychotic white collar jerks in prison for the damage they inflict on innocent victims so they may save money to pad their paychecks. I now realize how badly doctors are getting the shaft. Insurance companies cut their fees and antagonize them to the point of feeling hopeless. Low wage Insurance company idiots countermand the treatments ordered by people who spend 10 years of higher education to get the privilege of earning less than a 4 year graduate. I now have to sit back and suffer while my injuries worsen, deal with the State of NJ Department of Insurance, the NJ Solicitor General, the NJ Medical Licensing Board and the Courts of the most corrupt state in the country.
Please God if I die before this ordeal is over…give me revenge…even if I don’t die.
Needless to say, I will never shop at Sears or K-mart…the owners of Allstate. _______________________________________________________
Our Local Heroes
BY GREGG TALLMAN
It was in the cold of winter, about 20 degrees and getting colder as it was near 4pm. I was entering an elevator to my office when it stopped with a lurch between the first and second floors. The hallway and elevator were not heated and the chill of winter was overwhelming.
I had my cell phone but could not get reception while trying to call for help and I called for help until I nearly lost my voice.
I managed to open the elevator door and tried to hold my cell phone through the 8 inch opening and get through a call for help. By this time, over an hour had passed and my feet were going numb from the cold.
I could hear voices and loud music on the other side of a 2 foot thick brick wall but no matter how hard I yelled, there was no response.
After another hour in the freezing elevator, my hands starting to freeze, I realized that most people had gone home for the day as it was Friday and I envisioned that someone would find me dead on Monday when the workers would return from the weekend.
I kept trying to make calls on my cell phone until I saw the battery losing power and I was down to one bar of charge. By this time my voice was muted and my throat was sore from yelling for help.
Finally, I remembered that the 911 service ran off of a different satellite system and tried calling them several times to no avail Then I stuck my hand through the crack between the elevator and the wall and tried once more.
I can’t describe the feeling when I heard a 911 operator’s voice on my phone and proceeded to tell her of my situation. Within 5 minutes, the entire Asbury Park Police and Fire Departments were coming through the entry door and heard my calls for help.
But this was only the beginning of the ordeal of getting me out of the freezing elevator. After giving me a heavy blanket and hot coffee and even offering to bring me a hot meal from a local restaurant through the 8 inch gap, They proceeded to call the electric company and the elevator company to find a way to free me from my icy prison. For two more hours, they stayed by me, talking to me to make sure I didn’t succumb to hypothermia and they had to do so in shifts due to the bitter cold. The elevator company had to hand-crank the elevator down from the top of the building so my shaking legs and feet could reach freedom.
I have always contributed to the local police and fire departments, never having to really need their help before and you can be assured that I will continue to do so.
What prompted me to write of my traumatic ordeal is my horror at seeing a trend towards people and criminals shooting at police and firemen instead of being arrested. In my time, it was taboo to even think of shooting or assaulting these heroes of the community. I know times are bad and people are stressed by the economy but to harm someone who may save your mother or family member is beyond belief.
I owe my life to these people and I know they risk their lives on a daily basis. Please honor them and give if asked to support their needs such as equipment or for an injured fallen hero. The 9/11/01 World Trade Center murders and the tragedy at the Pentagon should have taught us that these people are special and deserve due respect. I have my own special reason.
Obama….Hero or Zero? 2013
BY: GREGG TALLMAN
Starting his second term in the Whitehouse, how would you grade President Obama ?
His historical position as president has placed a tremendous amount of stress on him to excel and prove himself as a competent president.
The only way to assess his approach to the office of president fairly is to take a look at the big picture of America itself and the condition it was in when he took office.
1. America was in a recovery from a depression.
2. America was involved in wars in two nations, which both were won within days and now we play police force to nations that will take advantage of our armies until they are forced to pay for America’s costs of assisting them.
3. Corruption was rampant in corporations and the business sector.
4. Illegal immigrants were flooding the entire country.
First we should look at the Pro side of the equation;
1. He took on big banks and insurance companies that were in the act of ruining the economy effectively to date. Now he is taking on Big Oil, steps that previous administrations were afraid to do.
2. He made good on his promise to institute a form of national healthcare reform. Again, previous administrations were intimidated by the big money of the insurance industry.
3. He realized that there was no quick solution to ending the wars immediately and has taken proactive steps towards getting the troops out of the Middle East.
4. He has united the country in a way that has never been done before. The Republican party has become near traitors to the country out of spite to try and make him look bad .
And then the Con side of the equation;
1. He has been ineffective in bringing forth an economic recovery which has resulted in high unemployment. He has not worked with the right people available to create the necessary jobs to facilitate economic growth. I know this for a fact as I know a frustrated developer who has a pre-approved program for the development of 12 million jobs in America
2. He has mishandled the Illegal Alien situation which is devastating the economy and country. There is no other solution other than secure our borders and deport all illegals. They now number as much as 10 percent of America’s population and are still coming at a cost of $500 billion/yr.
4. His administration and advisors have their own agenda of continuing corruption as they know he has 4 years at best.
When compared to previous administrations, one must grade him as a hero and potentially one of the greatest presidents to date if Congress stops acting like children and proceed to better the country rather than play politics. Many of our nation's states and cities are bankrupt or near the brink of economic disaster. He has garnered the attention and respect of world leaders as they know as America goes, so goes the world economies and well-being.
History will judge us all as well as President Obama, one can only hope that America can unite in the common goals of leaving a better world than that in which we were born for our children.

What do Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common? Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work. Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans. And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican nationals! The program was called 'Operation Wetback' so that American WWII and Korean veterans had a better chance at jobs. It took 2 Years, but they deported them! Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they can surely do it today! lf you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.
Reminder: Don't forget to pay your taxes . . . 25 million Illegal Aliens are depending on you
Not all illegal aliens are hispanic and I am not a racist. In fact, I have a position wherein I prosecute all acts of discrimination but here are the facts;
Illegals are costing America $500 billion dollars/yr.
Many are hardcore criminals that cannot return to their country as they would be put in jail.
Many are gangbangers who are the source of a large percentage of the drug trade.
It costs taxpayers approximately $50,000/yr. to have them in our prisons.

New Jersey Attorneys suspected of theft in the millions of dollars. Judges may be involved.
In 2006 Judge Alexander Lehrer appointed Jerold Zaro to administer the dissolution of a Ponzi scheme perpetrated by R.E.I. Group, Gary Klein et al. ( see www. FarbervKlein on the judiciary website : http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/reigroupinc/fiscal_agent.htm) Zaro in turn hired Bunce Atkinson to represent him as he represented the Court. Apparently Zaro knew he was not competent and needed to have someone block as he stole funds. Note Atkinson swore to the truthfulness of most accounting and documents as he had to have knowledge of their deceptions.nce for corruption in government after the latest FBI arrests which included another person on his staff and gave New Jersey the title as “ the Most Corrupt State in the Nation"
The Court allowed Zaro to receive $450/hr plus expenses plus 10% of the net sales of real estate. See exhibit 1
Zaro then decides to pay Atkinson $450/hr. to represent him.
Now I happen to have had the pleasure of employing Zaro’s firm and they charged $295/hr in 2004. Both attorneys charged for every second, stamp and paperclip ( see exhibit 2) and even had the gall to charge at a 6 minute minimum ( $45.00) which meant if they pick up the phone and say “ Hi” and hung up, they billed $45. This was made even more absurd if they called each other.
The Courts use standard accounting practices, nothing fancy. Attorneys are supposed to “ mitigate “ charges as the cases are a gift from the Court. ( mitigate means being frugal or not excessive )
In exhibits 3 and 4, you will notice Zaro taking 10% of the gross sale of each property. Nowhere in the Court order is there mention of a 6 minute minimum... only fair and reasonable costs. A 6 minute minimum is neither fair nor reasonable.
In doing so, many victims of the fraud scheme were not paid and received no restitution. This includes my own real estate company that was due hundreds of thousands of dollars in commissions for renting units. So I am a little biased and since I was so close to the situation, it soon became apparent to me what was happening.
The primary rule of professional conduct is avoiding even the appearance of impropriety. While these are only allegations at this time, it would be unconscionable for the state congress and attorney general not to investigate and retrieve the ill-gotten gains from the criminal parties. There are several attorneys, judges and accountants that appear to have conspired in the theft of funds but it also could have been orchestrated by Zaro and Atkinson without the knowledge of the other parties.
Judge Lehrer left the bench in the middle of the case after I started my investigation and I filed a complaint with the New Jersey State Supreme Court Ethics Committee.
Zaro then defaulted on over 20 million dollars worth of properties in his trust and left the firm of Ansell, Zaro, Grimm and Aaron.
Now Jerold L. Zaro is chief of the state Office of Economic Growth on Governor Jon Corzine’s economic advisory counsel. We are fairly sure Corzine knows nothing of this scam yet however it could be due to Zaro’s campaign contributions of over $21,000.
Governor Corzine has claimed to have no tolerance for any type of corruption in his administration.
We at Spotlight Magazine are calling for an investigation and review of the handling of the case citing the violation of the Court’s and Public trust by the state congress and the state attorney general. Upon conviction of the attorneys, one would seek to
disbar them under the Rules of Professional Conduct.

LOOK FOR THE UNION LABEL
BY: GREGG TALLMAN
My mother gave me a medal when I was younger...it was a medal given to my great grandfather for being one of the coal miner union members in the late 1800's ( one of the first unions created ) when they struck for an eight hour workday. He was one of the organizers and it made me realize that from that time forward, someone in my family was in a union. I was in the IPGCU, International Printing and Graphics Union, my father was in the UMAW and the UAW and my brother and all of my brothers-in-law were union at one time or another. If a product or building was made by union members, you could be assured that it was well built. Now I'm a pencil pusher sitting behind a desk and looking around today, I realized that the unions workers today are taking a severe beating. Management is cutting health benefits, wages and jobs to pay for their corruption and crimes against the American people. So who gets a trillion dollars in bail out money ? Management...so they can cut jobs and hire non union workers, the kind you find at Home Depots. Madoff stole 60 billion, Sanford stole 7 billion, AIG needed billions, the financial institutions needed billions...you get my drift. How much did the union workers steal? When I was young it was always "companies trying to break the unions". Here in New Jersey, a well known developer took great pride in advertising the fact that he would never hire union labor. His development went bankrupt recently.
Now, if you have been reading the other articles on my website you see I am seeking to create 750,000 plus jobs for America, I swear they will all be union. In fact, when I first presented my plans, the Union Pension and Trust Fund Administrators verbally promised over a billion dollars to fund the project. Without the unions, the white collar criminals wouldn't have the money to steal, pretty sad. In fact, they are trying to steal my money...damn. If they hadn't stole my money, this country would have 750,000 extra jobs right now and union construction projects in every state hmmmm. So the next time you complain about what union workers get paid or buy that foreign car, realize the American history and efforts of good, hardworking people who train and learn their trades and skills that built this country and honor them on Labor Day.

Insurance Companies Are Raping the People and the Economy
By: Gregg Tallman
The concept of insurance is very simple, to protect and insure people from losses due to accidents or catastrophic acts of God. The insurer collects premiums, places them into a secure place such as t-bills or other very secure avenues of investment. As claims are paid…premiums are collected and a security pool of money is created based on the number of clients to protect the company from failing. Sounds simple huh?
Today’s society of corrupt, criminal, psychotic, greedy white collar administrators of the insurance industry have taken this simple, well intentioned plan and twisted it so they may unjustly enrich themselves through crime and become a menace to the public.
Say you are a top level administrator of and insurance company and decide that you deserve more money than your salary. You figure that if you command your underlings to start denying legitimate claims and cheat the people out of their due benefits…you can pay yourself a bonus or buy a 1.2 million dollar desk. Once this is done and nobody objects, you decide to take a trip to Paris to examine their company practices…you have to have expense money , better order that limo too, you don’t know how to drive over there…better make it two weeks and take the spouse, don’t want to get lonely. Total cost…a mere $50,0000.00.
Oops, when you return, one of your co-workers gets wind of what you did and you, not wanting this extravaganza to come to light, give the co-worker a bonus and send them to Las Vegas to examine their insurance policies.
Now you have two corrupt criminals looking to cheat the people with legitimate claims and injuries to hide and pay for their “ bonuses and perks “ instructing their underling to deny legitimate claims and to negotiate with people using duress and whatever means to pay for their “ bonuses and perks “. The child hurt in an auto accident doesn’t need surgery…they can limp and nobody will notice. His parents can’t afford an attorney and will take a ten cent on the dollar settlement and nickname him gimpy.
This escalates and continues and now you have a full blown corrupt business that seeks to menace the community that trusted them to protect their children and themselves.
This practice is picked up by other insurance companies and they start partying, having a good time and the people suffer.
Now you have a nation of corrupt insurance companies and people suffering the people cannot do anything about it because the insurance companies have contributed to the political war-chests of all of the politicians who tell the regulators that they are alright and not to bother investigating the complaint filed by the limping child’s parents.
Now I am referring to a company named New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Co. , and all the other small scale insurance companies with their small time criminals menacing the public and letting the child limp.
So let’s talk AIG and the other big boys of the industry…the corrupt , criminal, psychotic greedy white collar administrators see that they could get bigger bonuses and perks by investing that sacred pool of money set aside to save the limping child and invest it in any and all high yield investment to cover up their theft and unethical acts. Which by now have become hundred million dollar bonuses, corporate jets and hookers. They thumb their noses and laugh at the people and now there are thousands of limping children and people suffering at the hands of their underlings who now have accepted that the must commit crimes to keep their jobs. But…they don’t like it. They see what’s going on and tell their families and friends.
The big shots don’t care.
So other industries see the money and perks that these insurance executives are getting and feel left out and don’t like being looked down upon by the insurance executives so they devise similar corrupt, criminal, psychotic greedy plans and soon many industries in the United States of America are sick and corrupt while the children limp and the people talk amongst themselves as apathy grows.
This goes on for decades . With being corrupt, criminal, psychotic and greedy becoming the “ cool “ and the accepted practice being past down to the next generation. They decide that since God was putting up with the limping children that it was the right thing to do or that there was no God, equating him with the Easter Bunny or Sponge Bob. So the insurance industry started cheating people with much more serious disorders to pay for their perks and bonuses and banks and the other industries, wanting to keep up, decided God didn’t exist and it was survival of the fittest, with animal law prevailing so pretty much anything goes to get the bonuses and perks and if anyone spoke up they would be murdered as in Abe Lincoln, John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Popes, clergy, and John Q. Public…They had to emasculate the media and any other entity that could expose them and deprive them of their money.
The sickness spread throughout the country and world with society rotting until it didn’t exist anymore. Having class was a joke and sex sold well.
Then the limping children started dieing . People died due to the greed and sickness but nobody cared except their loved ones but by now it was millions of people dying and people noticed that historical natural disasters were consuming the Earth. Global warming and pollution caused by the greed of the white collar executives was being noticed. Very religious member of the Nation of Islam…a religion that requires devotion proven by stopping what they are doing and getting on their knees to pray to Allah several times a day were so insulted by Americas debauchery in the belief in God to caused over three thousand deaths, targeting the country’s business center and political icon as the entire lives of these people is wrapped in the obvious existence of Allah.
The mental link between people was disappearing, people were not able to communicate with each other and that caused mistakes and interference in the ability of the executives to coordinate their grand schemes to make billions. Things were coming to light and people were seeing the reality of what America had become.
Technology and the media suddenly were the only form of communication for the people. The internet and electronic devices became the greatest invention since the telephone and the corrupt executives could not keep up with the growth of technology and the resurgence of the popularity of the press and media. American were much more informed by CNN, Fox News etc…Corruption in the Courts and Congress was being expose and the people were saying “ we aren’t putting up with crime and corruption anymore…we want to saved the limping children.”
So America elected an American Man of African ancestry, showing that the people have had enough , there is a God and it is time for a change
I reference “ The People “ many times in tribute to a great American who penned the Declaration of Independence, one of the greatest documents ever written. His obvious belief and our other founding fathers total belief in God is undisputable. How far have people come from those days when they reveled in the glory of creating a new nation “ Under God “ to the ridiculous attacks on any mention of God by the ACLU and other radical, mentally ill people who obviously don’t believe in God.
Will America survive? Will the world survive the wrath of God?
America has taken the backseat to other nations such as China and India in the world’s economic and technological markets. Sounds like a spanking from God to me. History…biblical and scientific, has shown that the world has suffered Ice Ages, Floods and more caused by God if you believe.
America is being given a “ second chance “ if we fail in the sight of God, one can only imagine the consequences. The clock is running out and the natives are restless. Nuclear bombs and military might are being stockpiled and the hand of God only has to push one button to destroy the planet and it could happen tomorrow.
People are looking for work to support their families and basically survive while the watch Madoff’s crimes and theft of billions. Other executives are being indicted for similar crimes but it is only the tip of the iceberg. President Obama must use his legal background to step forth and order the apathetic SEC, FDIC,OCC and the rest of the government alphabet to get off their butts and do their jobs by prosecuting white collar criminals. White collar crime entails a million times the amount of monetary damages done by organized crime or gangs. President Obama is a natural genius in that he is hitting several areas at one time so the corrupt groups cannot keep up with pulling the strings of their puppets in Congress to stop him from solving the problems of America and endangering their precious bonuses.
I personally, along with Spotlight Magazine and spotlight-mag.com intend to continue reminding the people of the areas of corruption that exist and will continue to work with the president and the “ good guys” in congress. I refuse to allow practitioners of “ dirty business “ to advertise in the magazine nor will I do business with them on the street. This is the only way to cure the ills of America and if you do not do the same…maybe you should do some self analysis to find out why. Why am I thinking sick thoughts and enjoy dishonoring my country and family? Why would I commit a crime and hurt someone to make a dollar? Why would I allow a “ dirty business or person “ influence me into giving them my money?
Many young men and women oversees are risking their lives for America…fighting a war which basically is over the existence of God and must trouble Him that people should die and not pay more attention to him and the positive plans he has for us on Earth and for the universe.
