  1. So what about the Hearst family and all their magazines? We need to make 100 people millionaires rather than 10 people billionaires. Once you have enough money to buy everyone out, its time to soul search.

  2. She is amazing. So is Jake.

  3. Why? only 545?

    A shocking thing I did NOT say is they also
    stated that some pills/Pharmacy perscriptions were nothing more than “sugar pills”….without ANYTHING in them……no drug in them..
    ..what’s that “pure profit” ?????????????
    If that claim IS true……….
    They can stick it up thier Upjohns.

  5. Re: Taking Action
    What really seemed gutsy was that Roseanne asked for the marijuana for “anxiety”, when she could have stated the purpose was for any of a number of physical ailments that are often perceived as being more acceptable medical reasons.
    You can take action to let your voice be heard and make medical marijuana available, end the war on drugs, etc. here: http://www.drugpolicy.org/action
    Re: The Tax Issue
    From a report issued this week, CEO’s Who Make More Than Their Companies Pay in Taxes: http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-ceos-taxes,0,4990052.photogallery
    Note the number of companies for which a large tax refund is listed instead of the amount of taxes they paid. According to this report, that was unwarranted since the companies reported high profits: http://www.ips-dc.org/reports/executive_excess_2011_the_massive_ceo_rewards_for_tax_dodging/
    You can sign a petition to put an end to corporate tax abuse here: http://www.ips-dc.org/campaigns/tax-dodging-ceos/

  6. PERSEVERANCE PREVAILS!
    Roseanne qualifies for medical marijuana with flying colors:
    A lesson for all of us, its your life, its your body, don’t let anyone tell you that you need a man made drug. With all the side affects “JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS”… Marijuana is pure from the earth, what side affects are there? The most important one I can think of is Pharmaceutical Companies can’t make money off it. Its grown ready, not produced in a lab.
    Thanks Roseanne for yet another lesson in “How to stand up for what you believe!”

    Aloha to you all, wanted to share this with you and sure hope it’s ok to post it here.
    Charley Reese’s final column
    Just a Friendly Reminder
    A very interesting column. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL
    Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.
    Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel.
    He has been a journalist for 49 years.
    He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.
    Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
    This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!
    545 vs. 300,000,000 People
    – By Charlie Reese
    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
    Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.
    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
    If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
    There are no insoluble government problems.
    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy”,”inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
    They, and they alone, have the power.
    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess.
    Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
    What you do with this article now that you have read it is up to you. This might be funny if it weren’t so true. Be sure to read all the way to the end:
    Tax his land,
    Tax his bed,
    Tax the table,
    At which he’s fed.
    Tax his tractor,
    Tax his mule,
    Teach him taxes
    Are the rule.
    Tax his work,
    Tax his pay,
    He works for
    peanuts anyway!
    Tax his cow,
    Tax his goat,
    Tax his pants,
    Tax his coat.
    Tax his ties,
    Tax his shirt,
    Tax his work,
    Tax his dirt.
    Tax his tobacco,
    Tax his drink,
    Tax him if he
    Tries to think.
    Tax his cigars,
    Tax his beers,
    If he cries
    Tax his tears.
    Tax his car,
    Tax his gas,
    Find other ways
    To tax his ass.
    Tax all he has
    Then let him know
    That you won’t be done
    Till he has no dough.
    When he screams and hollers;
    Then tax him some more,
    Tax him till
    He’s good and sore.
    Then tax his coffin,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in
    Which he’s laid…
    Put these words
    Upon his tomb,
    ‘Taxes drove me
    to my doom…’
    When he’s gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply
    The inheritance tax.
    Accounts Receivable Tax
    Building Permit Tax
    CDL license Tax
    Cigarette Tax
    Corporate Income Tax

    Utility Taxes
    Vehicle License Registration Tax
    Vehicle Sales Tax
    Watercraft Registration Tax
    Well Permit Tax
    Workers Compensation Tax
    STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
    What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
    I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!
