We are moving into another period with a Democratic House and a Republican president, and this tells me there will be opportunities for fantastic advances in disability rights. We need an omnibus disability rights bill.
The advantage of having U.S. Supreme Court panels all across the nation is that we would restore access to the highest court instead of having little fiefdom courts that try to avoid imposing Supreme Court precedents.
Maybe one day I will be able to escape this and get back to my disability civil rights leadership. Maybe one day, there will even be an apology from the 7th Circuit. Not holding my breath except for the manure.
It is agonizingly slow trying to get justice for those born and poisoned at Camp LeJeune. I asked to overturn the denial of my Camp LeJeune Family Member Program application. I am still waiting.
The Marine Corps and the judges who have been violating my disability and constitutional rights. They must be punished. Otherwise, more tragedies will happen as U.S. Marines are ordered to cut corners.

New Zealand’s Mixed-Member Proportional election system would be good for disabled people in the United States because disability concerns could be heard in Congress more easily.
