    Anybody else heard of this?

    I've only read a part of the reference information but so far it's got me pissed off again.. maybe I should just stay "PO'd" to save time in having to get there..

    > Pigford v. Glickman
    > "In 1997, 400 African-American farmers sued the United States
    > Department of Agriculture, alleging that they had been unfairly
    > denied USDA 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 claims.
    > 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 teensy 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.
    > Hmmm... by the Official USDA 1992 Census data the US had only 18,816
    > black farmers!!
    > Oops!!
    > Well, gosh - 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'll 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.
    > Oops again !!
    > Yes, folks. It appears that Ms. Sherrod had just unwittingly
    > exposed herself as the perpetrator of one of the biggest fraud
    > claims in the history of the United States - - a fraud enabled
    > solely because she screamed racism at the government and cowed
    > them into submission.
    > And it gets even more interesting.
    > 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 recession to pay out more than $1.25
    > billion to settle a race claim.
    > But Andy Breitbart knew. And 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's 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.
    > But the perpetrator of that law passed in dead silence leading to
    > unlawful claims & corruption..... is still trying to fool all of US.
    > Go to Google and read for yourself "Pigford vs. Glickman", or
    > "Pigford Obama".
    > As some have said, "The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is
    > less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made
    > him their President."
