This judge is awful. He cherry picks I formation in order to deny you. He is biased against mental health claims. Request a different judge.

nI wish I can put a zero, I am 100 percent permanent disable veteran, went thru federal appeals and return to him for the federal appeal and still got denied. Someone needs to fire him,or social security purposely gives him disable veterans on purpose since he denies seems like all of us, and yes it's TRUE he says stuff and they don't put it on record with his sly comments like you should be good with your va pension and working at Walmart as a greeter. He seems to enjoy destroying lives, I hope you read this. You have my info we can drink coffee to debate your evilness and I heard he was prior service at that, shame on you

To Steven L. Cravens Administrative Law Judge : I am writing You in regards to the favorable decision you made for me. I want to let you know how much it means to me for someone to take the time out and listen too all i had to say about my medical condition. I can not express how much this means to me and my family. I have fought this battle from the age of 5 and its never been easy. I never wanted to be in a situation like this and was always hopeful that i would grow out of it. As years past it was the other way around and as i got older things got harder. I was told that i had a chance to pass it to my children and i did. This was the worse thing for i know what they have in store for them, I am very blessed to have had someone for the first time to seem to understand and listen to my points. Thank you is just not enough. I could go on forever about myself but there is absolutely no reason too. Once again thank you for being the judge you are and making all fair decisions. I have been able to have several operations and still more to go all because someone listens and cared instead of throwing out with know concerns. Thank you again.

01/06/2018 From: Ronald C. Kyker 21760 E. Fifth St. Hinton, OK 73047 Social Security Room #300 301 NW 6th St. Oklahoma City, OK 73102 To: Steven L. Cravens Administrative Law Judge Concerning: Your unfavorable decision (denial) of my disability claim. Mr. Cravens/Your Honor, I imagine that many respond to your unfavorable decisions with a letter of complaint, so I realize you will most likely never see this one from me. I guess I write it mostly for my benefit alone as I also know, even if you read it, it would make absolutely no difference to the outcome. I really don't have a complaint. At least, not against you Sir. If I were to complain, it would be about a game I don't know how to play and my inability to find anyone who does know how to play it so I might come out the victor. I've been told over and over that if I go in there and tell the truth, I would not get my disability. I guess they were right. I'll try to keep this short. I considered writing to you in order to tell you that a great mistake must have been made on my case, as the person your decision describes I do not recognize. I don't know that person. My first thought when I read it was—“This cannot be about me, he must be talking about somebody else!” But, with my name and address on it, I knew there could be no such error made. The person you describe is nothing more than a fat and lazy soul who, if he would just get off his you know what, all his problems would go away. He sounds like someone who should be publicly shamed for his fabrications and likely should be prosecuted for submitting fraudulent statements. But then again, it is odd! I wish that I was him, for then I could just wake-up from my self-induced haze, go to work, and the nightmare of the last six years would just be a learning experience or a just another step in my spiritual growth. I'm too numb to be angry anymore. I don't even know who to be angry at. Judges who force me to go through utter humiliation, Attorneys that have no clue, or Doctors who do not provide records, proof, opinions, or help of any kind and you can tell they just have written you off as another lazy fool trying to get what he doesn't deserve. I can't take care of my Mama anymore. She will be going into a NH soon. Truth is, I can't take of anything anymore. The person you describe seems more than able to take care of the house, take care of his Mama, the dogs, my two acres, and even himself. I've got to put the place up for sale before the state gets it at the end of the year. I can't do it anymore. The person you talk about has never gone through the Hell me and Mama have the past six years. Why anyone would go through all that just to try to get out of working is beyond me. Until six years ago, I worked hard all of my life. Now I am in bed most of the day waiting on all those so called good friends to come help me. They rarely ever come and family could care less what happens to us. I can't take the pain anymore, the waiting for someone to help me, the humiliation of everyone treating you like your some kind of dead beat. Even my Church Family! I used to be 165 lbs., ran six miles a day, took care of a elderly Mama, worked two jobs, and took care of five foster/adopted children by myself. I will not go through this humiliation again. I can't go through it again. Besides, by the end of the year, I'll have nothing left anyway but my future glory in Heaven. I can't even write much anymore. I did it as long as I could. I can't serve in my Church anymore. I am no good to anyone anymore. I spent my life helping others. I've tried to keep my Mama out of NH and take care of all these things. You say I am still able. I'd give anything in the world if that were true! This is one time I wish I was just a lazy, fat, good for nothing soul. Then I could still change things and make them right. I know! It's just another hard luck story. Millions have them. I'm not the first to go down and I won't be the last. Well, thanx for listening to my rant—If you read it at all. If not, at least I feel better and now am ready to take the drastic steps I will have take in the coming months. It is just hard to let go and admit you failed and that despite all of your efforts, your efforts weren't enough. And, worse; to have everyone then also say—You did to yourself! God knows the truth! I'll give an answer to Him! Respectfully, ron

Lied in his decision for my case claiming I still played golf when I clearly told him before and during both hearings that I had to quit playing 6 years ago because my body couldn't take the movement. Yet he said because I played golf, I showed full range of motion and therefore was not disabled. His crew and my lawyer were also unable to obtain information about my TBI which only took me 30 minutes at the VA office at the federal building to obtain?!? Incompetent!

He was the most professional ,polite, attentive and efficient. from swearing in to conclusion it was 30 min long. I could tell what he asked me that he had read my file. It was a 22 month wait to get him. but the luck of the draw I was assigned to him. Very laid back,,,If you have impairments with medical documentation and a good RFC,,,you will be fine..I fit the "grid" and the VE couldn't find a job that I could do.
