Help spread the word!
The Youth PROMISE Act (Prison Reduction through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education) is groundbreaking, bipartisan legislation currently before the U.S. House and Senate that will make unprecedented investments in proven strategies to prevent youth violence. While this is a national referendum, this bill has the potential to dramatically affect violence in our own neighborhoods of LA where we face an epidemic of violence among our youth. Across our nation, the challenges reach from inner city gangs to suburban bullies, and spill into our streets, schools, homes and culture.
There is hope. The Youth PROMISE Act will save lives, reduce crime and save money by empowering local communities to shape and oversee evidence-based strategies that engage and divert at-risk youth proactively, before they slip through the cracks of the criminal justice system. This is the first act of its kind to focus exclusively on prevention. Learn more at www.youthpromiseaction.org.
The Youth PROMISE Act already has tremendous momentum, with the support of a majority of the Member of the U.S. House of Representatives and is gaining steam in the U.S. Senate. Help us give Congress an extra push to pass this transformative legislation. We have a real opportunity to help end the cycle of hopelessness and despair that is the daily reality for far too many of our youth. Join us!

  1. I’ve been a fan of yours since you came out on Johnny Carson…recently, with your new show and big mouthed political opinions….I only love you more. I pray for your guidance. I have been doing a radio show for over a year on public broadcasting voicing my opinion about cannabis laws, Monsanto, the NWO, the lies of the AMA, aliens, UFO’s, animal cruelty….you name it. I’ve managed to alienate myself from the pathetic, apathetic hippy wannabees and can’t help but be hurt sometimes. It’s annoying because as you know, many things we say regarding our opinions are not meant to hurt anyone but meant to be honest and funny. Dear Roseanne….how do you do it? With fame comes many things. One of which is peoples dreadful hate directed at you. I remember when you sang the SSB and LOVED IT! I felt for you when you were treated like an asshole. I knew THEN you meant no harm. People take shit too serious. But the fact that you went on your show, used it as a platform to apologize and redeem yourself shows how humble, gifted and truly wise you are. Every week I watch your show and wish I had a mother like you, a sister, a lover a friend. You are so incredible. You speak your mind, the truth and all with obvious LOVE. So thank you so much for gracing this world with your bright beautiful bold obnoxious honest SOUL. You fucking rock and I love you.

  2. jesus christ- do you have any idea of what your government is doing to you??? wake the fuck up!

  3. I’m also a member! Thank you for any help you are able to give!

  4. Dear Roseanne:
    As a member of the BOYCOTT FOR JUSTICE FB group, would like to offer our thanks and gratitude for your insightful blog commentaries and provocative tweets on the Casey Anthony case.
    What in tarnation is the BOYCOTT FOR JUSTICE group you may ask? It’s part of a grassroots movement that popped up like Aphrodite rising from the sea after the unbelievable verdict emerged from a jury that you rightly say “rushed to judgment” without even taking a second look at the evidence. We come from all backgrounds, religions, age groups and ethnicities. Since we can’t undo the verdict which through the machinations of an unscrupulous lawyer, loosed a murderess upon society, we have channeled our energies into what we believe is a positive cause: to oppose her family and friends and the Baezite defense team from using the deceased child as an ATM machine through TV, books and other media deals. We have directed our energies at the network giants and most importantly at the sponsors of any program featuring the family from hell or its advocates. Although at times we feel like mosquitoes zapping an elephant, there have been modest successes with Betty Crocker and Bayer aspirin companies saying that they won’t sponsor the Dr. Phil “tell-all” with Granmaw and Granpaw Anthony scheduled for September 12. Supposedly that appearance is unpaid except for a half-million donation to the Anthony foundation, a cause for concern because it’s a matter of record that the family skimmed off 80% of the proceeds of their previous “non-profit” foundations. Maybe this Fund will be used for finding the “real” killer of baby Caylee?
    Knowing full well that you prefer to de-tox from the Anthony family saga, we ask that you consider visiting the subject in your inimitable way now and again in tweets and blogs as well as taking a look at the hundreds upon hundreds of FB sites with a combined membership of over a million people allied against the continued racketeering and unsavory profiteering of the Anthony clan and its groupies. Take a look at our FB group page as well: BOYCOTT FOR JUSTICE. Some of the FB sites have become a bit vigilante in their tactics and that’s understandable knowing that many are novices to the game of fighting BIG media and BIG publishing. However, our group of dedicated activists decided to take the high road. Although our original group had more than 2000 members, we pared down the number excluding those with axes to grind or those who just wanted to agonize and antagonize or who were convinced that the federal government could step in and overturn the verdict which as Gershwin wrote: Ain’t Necessarily So.
    We also want to direct our energies at getting laws passed to protect the children of this land and punish the offenders starting with Caylee’s Law, the only positive thing to issue from this traumatic tragedy. And also make our wishes known to both giant and midget publishing companies to refrain from paying the principals in this case who want to make big bucks from their flawed memoirs about a dead child who didn’t stand a chance.
    Since you have referred to the mother-daughter relationship in your blog, thought you might be interested in this analysis of the nightmarish relationship between the two madres in this case. Perhaps you can use it for a blog?

    Hoping to perhaps hear from you either directly or through a tweet or blog, it’s sign-off time for now.
    Best wishes.
    Marie Ciliberti for the BOYCOTT FOR JUSTICE group
