A Simple Italian Woman


Prayerfully spending time awaiting a deposition from the city's attorney.
Three and a half years of fighting the city alone, without funds or a lawyer.
Yet, the city of Phoenix and all their wrong doing has bottomless pockets to hire rich attorneys with lavish tastes.
Wasting time and lots of taxpayers money to go up against one simple Italian woman who should never have been fired.
Wrongful termination while on FMLA - a cut and dry case, already won in front of the PERB Board.
Why is the city of Phoenix tormenting one little woman, hiring big class attorneys, bribing and lying to court judges for favorable decisions on their wrongful priorities.
Why this huge effort to keep one simple woman from having a hearing or trial?
Why keep her from a job she so desperately needs to exist?
Why? Think about it.
High priced attorneys perched in high-rise buildings, forging full force ahead against one simple woman whom they have wronged.
Why not give her job back with back wages, raises and benefits - what will it profit them to fulfill this simple request?
Decency, honor, self-respect.
Yet, instead of doing what's decent and right, the city of Phoenix chooses to stand in it's puddle of mud, defamation and corruption, all the while stealing from the public to front this despicable travesty of justice against a simple Italian woman.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
