Wheels Grinding Slow in the Motor City!!!

Mr. Obama for the life of me I don't understand why the elected officials from this State are so corrupt. I realize it happens all over the country but please come to Michigan and round up the entire bunch. I'm trying to leave but the crooked folks that run Federally funded programs are literally stealing the poor and disadvanted blind. Yes I am blind but by not stretch am I "stupid" when you took office back in 2008 I wrote Mr.Ducan about how blind people are treated in this state it's beyond words, the injustice is impossible. And when you speak out you get more harassment, from the folks who are paid to protect you, from the same treatment the RSA is funded to do, the racial divide is unbelievable amongst the blind community. The "Good Ole Boy" click is at a all time high. An example in my case specifically is the State of Michigan has stolen my retirement that I pay into with no explanation. I recently started a transfer out to go to a better job market and they are holding up my monies to move through Vocational Rehabilitation Services that is Funded by you Sir. In 2007 they put me out of work for 18 months for being a "Whisle Blower" about the corruption in this state against Blind people. I realize we're 1% of the population, I'm not asking for a hand out but a hand up for the blind. By the way Randolph Sheppard would be turning over in their graves if all the hard fought legislation was for the program to be ran by a bunch of thieves.Mr. Obama please help me to help the blind in Michigan. Have I contacted the Governos office you bet I have do I have a complaint number sure do!! Have I followed the chain of command you bet cha!! Again I'm stretching out to you for help. I even finished college last year at the ripe age of 60, and I've been accepted into another program but the crooks are holding me hostage I need the Obama bail out to set not just me but all the blind in Michigan.
