campaign promises:

1-war is obsolete and inefficient, has no place in a world economy-as it doesn’t pay for itself-warmongerers need to be put out of business.  New stock markets need to be developed based on resources, not fiat money.

    You say it very well Peter!-Can’t wait for more Roseanne!

  4. yes i am, thank u for knowing and showing. there will be more to come. expect me. (us)

  5. How cool is it that you’re running for President!!! For real, legit. You get to say all the things that need to be said. Like Anonymous geared themselves up for OWS by practicing Chanology(look it up), you survived Hollywood. Halle Berry may have broken barriers at teh Oscars, but you have broken barriers for women everywhere in the name of political freedom. Hillary was a blip. You r the master.

  6. Yes, yes, yes!
    Occupy the food supply – keep it clean, safe, and in abundance for all.
    This needs to go viral!

  7. oh, thank u for that. I know how this may sound but do u know if Vandana is on twitter? I’ve been looking for her but unsuccessfully.
    Occupy Our Food Supply, here-here.

  8. It has been amazing growing up on your sitcom and having you become only more awesome as time goes on. I got to learn at a young age good anti-capitalist-white supremacist patriarchy and I will always be indebted to you for that. You have my allegiance and my vote.
    Once on Roseanne’s Nuts you said how sometimes you do things and find out why later…. I started a zebra joke website. It’s fanpage is at http://www.facebook.com/zebrahumor . Getting to tell you ridiculous zebra jokes would be an honor and a privilege.

    Today, Feb. 27, is an Occupy Our Food Supply day of action. The following essay is just one of several related posts that will be appearing around the internet to mark the day.
    The biggest corporate takeover on the planet is the hijacking of the food system, the cost of which has had huge and irreversible consequences for the Earth and people everywhere.
    From the seed to the farm to the store to your table, corporations are seeking total control over biodiversity, land, and water. They are seeking control over how food is grown, processed, and distributed. And in seeking this total control, they are destroying the Earth’s ecological processes, our farmers, our health, and our freedoms.
    It starts with seeds. Monsanto and a few other gene giants are trying to control and own the world’s seeds through genetic engineering and patents. Monsanto wrote the World Trade Organization (WTO) treaty on Intellectual Property, which forces countries to patent seeds. As a Monsanto representative once said: “In drafting these agreements, we were the patient, diagnostician [and] physician all in one.”
    They defined a problem, and for these corporate profiteers the problem was that farmers save seeds, making it difficult for them to continue wringing profits out of those farmers. So they offered a solution, and their solution was that seeds should be redefined as intellectual property, hence seed saving becomes theft and seed sharing is criminalized. I believe that saving seeds and protecting biodiversity is our ecological and ethical duty. That is why I started Navdanya 25 years ago.
    Navdanya is a movement to occupy the seed. We have created 66 community seed banks, saved 3,000 rice varieties, stopped laws that would prevent us from seed saving, and fought against biopiracy.
    Corporations like Monsanto have created a seed emergency. This is the reason I am starting a global citizen’s campaign on seed sovereignty. I hope you will all join. The lawsuit that 84 organizations, including Navdanya, have filed against Monsanto in New York through the Public Patent Foundation is an important step in reclaiming seed sovereignty.
    The next step in the corporate control of the food supply chain is on our farms. Contrary to the claims of corporations, the chemical-based “green” revolution and genetic engineering do not produce more food. Navdanya’s report on GMOs, Health per Acre, shows that the GMO emperor has no clothes. Biodiverse organic farming protects nature while increasing nutrition per acre. We have the solutions to hunger, but it’s not profitable for major industrial agriculture companies like Monsanto and Cargill to implement those solutions.
    Cargill, the world’s biggest grain giant, wrote the WTO’s agriculture agreement, which has destroyed local production and local markets everywhere, uprooted small farmers, devastated the Amazon, and speculated on food commodities, pushing millions to hunger. A global corporate-controlled food system robs farmers of their incomes by pushing down farm prices, and robs the poor of their right to food by pushing up food prices. If a billion people are hungry today, it is because of greed-driven, capital-intensive, unsustainable, corporate-controlled globalized industrial agriculture. While creating hunger worldwide, agribusiness giants collect our tax money as subsidies in the name of removing hunger.
    This system has pushed another 2 billion to food-related diseases like obesity and diabetes. Replacing healthy, local food culture with junk and processed food is achieved through food safety laws, which I call pseudo-hygiene laws. At the global level these include the Sanitary and Phyto-sanitary agreement of the WTO. At the national level they include new corporate-written food safety laws in Europe and India, and the Food Safety Modernization Act in the U.S.
    The final link in the corporate hijacking of the food system is retail giants like Walmart. We have been resisting the entry of Walmart in India because Big Retail means Big Ag, and together the corporate giants destroy small shops and small farms that provide livelihoods to millions.
    We must Occupy Our Food Supply because corporations are destroying our seed and soil, our water and land, our climate, and biodiversity. Forty percent of the greenhouse gases that are destabilizing the climate right now come from corporate industrial agriculture. Seventy percent of water is wasted for industrial agriculture. Seventy-five percent of biodiversity has been lost due to industrial monocultures.
    We have alternatives that protect the Earth, protect our farmers, and protect our health and nutrition. To occupy the food system means simultaneously resisting corporate control and building sustainable and just alternatives, from the seed to the table. One seed at a time, one farm at a time, one meal at a time — we must break out of corporate food dictatorship and create a vibrant and robust food democracy.

  10. I agree with you Roseann but how will you ever get our corrupt congress to back you up?

  11. this is a great start.
    you have my vote…there is no one else running that so closely represents my thoughts, beliefs and commitments.
    I am hoping that at the very least you will help wake some sleepwalkers up.
    Thanks…Namaste,
