Roseanne Barr, media celebrity and third-party candidate for President, will speak at the Church in Ocean Park in Santa Monica this Saturday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.

She will speak about her candidacy, why people should vote for her, and about the issues of the day including medical marijuana and war on drugs, foreign wars and interventions, the economy and jobs, and the attacks on civil and human rights.

There will be a question and answer session after her remarks.

Barr beat out four other candidates at last month’s Peace and Freedom Party Convention to become the Party’s presidential candidate. Her choice for Vice President, Cindy Sheehan, was also nominated and elected. The Peace and Freedom Party is the largest left party in the country.

Barr achieved fame for playing the eponymous role in her long-running TV show "Roseanne.”

She is the mother of five children and currently lives in Hawaii.

Music at Saturday's event in Santa Monica will be provided by Suzy Williams.

There is no charge for the event. The church is located at 2nd and Hill Street in Santa Monica.

If you consider our other options of taking control of resuming control of this country Roseanne is not a bad choice. Look up her views and reasons for running and what she wishes to accomplish. Seems like a solid plan for change in a country that so desperately needs it.

The only people that believe prohibition is working are the ones making a living by enforcing laws in it's name, and those amassing huge fortunes on the black market profits. This situation is wholly unsustainable, and as history has shown us, conditions will continue to deteriorate until we finally, just like our forefathers, see sense and revert back to tried and tested methods of regulation. None of these substances, legal or illegal, are ever going to go away, but we CAN decide to implement policies that do far more good than harm. During alcohol prohibition in the 1920s, all profits went to enrich thugs and criminals. Young men died every day on inner-city streets while battling over turf. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have gone on treatment. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally the economy collapsed. Sound familiar? Ending prohibition would greatly reduce, even almost eliminate, the market in illegal narcotics, cause a reduction in the number of users and addicts, greatly curtail drug related illness and deaths, reduce societal harm from problematic abusers, and bring about an enormous reduction in the presence and influence of organized crime. The people who use drugs are our own children, our brothers, our sisters, our parents, and our neighbors. By allowing all adults safe and controlled legal access to psychoactive substances, we will not only greatly reduce the dangers for both them and ourselves but also greatly minimize the possibility of 'peer-initiation' and sales to minors. * It only takes one juror to prevent a guilty verdict. * You are not lawfully required to disclose your voting intention before taking your seat on a jury. * You are also not required to give a reason to the other jurors on your position when voting. Simply state that you find the accused not guilty! * Jurors must understand that it is their opinion, their vote. If the Judge and the other jurors disapprove, too bad. There is no punishment for having a dissenting opinion. If you sincerely believe that prohibition is a dangerous and counter-productive policy then you can stop helping to enforce it. You are entitled—required even—to act according to your conscience: PLEASE VOTE TO ACQUIT!

roseanne barr had a "traumatic brain-injury" when she was 16, dylan terreri had a "traumatic brain-injury" at 16 - why has dylan's insolent creativity gone ignored while roseanne's potty-mouthed insults are celebrated? what does a man - who was "traumatically brain-injured" in 1990 - have to do in order to follow in the gay-hating, female-bashing footsteps of the mighty "slim shady," i ask myself. i was convicted of a felony a decade ago, after i sent a ton of threatening emails to strangers as a marketing tool for my website. i've written a plethora of anti-gay essays and female-compromising petitions that i've posted on many different websites to link to my own website, i've decorated my car with graphics and slogans to direct people to my website, i've gone to websites for parody and i've posted over a hundred song parodies written by me that were taken directly from the 700 that are on my own website. i was childhood friends with someone named seth who is in the band "les savy fav" now, i just went to a bakery today and saw an advertisement for a local man who is in a band and currently performing in nashville, i see all of this and i ask myself "what about me". i've even written a parody of a song called "what about me" that was done by a band called "moving pictures" in 1989. so, what about me? what do i have to do to get my 13 year-old website noticed by singers and actors and producers, how can i let people know of the talent that has been brewing inside of me for years? i can sing, i can act, i can write - all of my homosexuality-compromising words of demeaning wit are on parade in video skits at my website of (homo)sexual assault that is www.anti-gay.com. all of my vagina-compromising satire is on parade at my websites of mockery that are www.femalebashing.com and www.strongwomen.info and www.legalizerape.org. the product of both my childhood and my "traumatic brain-injury" is live for all the world to see at my website of morissette-inspired parody that has been www.jaggedlittledyl.com since 1999. i mock Strongwoman's menstrual cycle because it derails the entire concept of feminism, simply with the fact that mommy lays an egg once a month. i mock Strongwoman's breasts because they derail the entire concept of feminism, simply though the role of the milk that mommy produces for the life that started as the aforementioned egg. i mock Strongwoman's dependence on the type of "special olympics" that is otherwise known as gender-based sports teams. i mock the lackluster "g.i. jane" and her reliance on gender-based military requirements. i mock gender-based fitness centers and gender-based poker nights, and did you know that the "coney island hot dog eating competition" had to go and add a "womens' division" in order for the little females to triumph? "we should've known you question your manhood when we saw you playing with it like you just bought it at some kind of curiosity shop". "how can you expect to be man enough to satisfy my hunger for a man...or anyone else's hunger, for that matter...if YOU hunger". these are two quotes from one of the anti-gay screenplays i have written, and all of my screenplays are kept on my site. the idea started as jaggedlittledyl.com in early 1999, out of an obsession with "jagged little pill," and i later registered anti-gay.com after realizing all of the anti-gay material on it. it's grown to over 25 urls, but it's all www.jaggedlittledyl.com. regarding today's overcompensating society where masculivoids like gays and females march in parades to fabricate a sense of masculine identity (ala, "rosie the riveter" stating "we can do it") in hopes of believing themselves when they say "i'm more man than you'll ever be," i realize the thoughts expressed on my website would be deemed as hateful or intolerant. now, aside from a bumper sticker i've created which reads, "tolerate my intolerance, you bigot," there is nothing to say to anyone who is thin-skinned enough to hold a pity-party and then call anyone "hateful" or "intolerant". people like that will always be offended at anything questioning their identity (their gender-disorientation), and there is no getting through to someone bull-headed enough to use pride as a defense-mechanism ("we here, we're queer, get used to it"). so i mock gays and feminists and other masculine slights on my vulgar website, which could've been "slim shady: part two". i really feel that my talents should be recognized. as i've said, i can sing and i can act and i can write. i am a talented singer with a vocal range not as vast as mariah carey's, but i can sing along with her on a few of her songs without dropping an octave. i have no training, so the "orgasm" scales/sounds that she makes in the song called "emotions" are not done as meticulously when i do them in my falsetto...but i can emulate them. i am a talented actor, having been the "2nd freshman thespian" in my high school's well-established "thespian society". i've had "ferris bueller's day off" memorized since 1987...and "dirty dancing" memorized since 1988. i amazed my friends as i'd recite every line, i amazed them even more than when i'd blow spit-bubbles off of my tongue. i was the MC in cabaret, as well, at age 15...i was in other plays, but cabaret was the one i got the most glory from. stephen king was my favorite author as a boy, and it certainly shows if you'd get a look at some of the "nastygrams" i've sent to restaurants and waitresses who have treated me with little respect. i've been investigated by the fbi, my letters were so twisted and so brilliantly expressive that people were psyched into believing they were being threatened by the mention of blood and islamic rape-rooms. though i only brought up the waitresses' "blood-red vaginas" to imply that women lay eggs. a woman bleeds out an egg from her womb. a woman is man-like with a womb, wombman. womman. woman. wrapping up, i will state again that i am a star waiting to be born. i can sing, i can act, i can write. i have more talent than 90 percent of famous people. i have more talent that 100% of famous niggers, including the "white house-negro"...and beyonce...and jay-z. i like to compare myself to slim shady, the anti-gay and anti-female side of eminem, just not with the same kind of tolerance for black people. gosh, if negros want reparations for a free ride from africa to america, why don't they move back to africa and pretend that slavery never happened? dylan terreri, i www.jaggedlittledyl.com .....

Yo, Roseanne!! This event was very worthwhile, but Roseanne's staff needs to be proactive in handling trouble-makers and hecklers. She had one this evening--a drunk--in the right, rear of the auditorium, who needed to be escorted outside, pronto. Also, the sound-system was decidedly below-par. Also, hightly recommended would have been for the organizers to request a suggested donation at the entrance, then later--ALSO--move the bucket around. This way, the 400 count crowd would have generated a few grand automatically, and then a few more dollars., to boot. The bucket method alone, meant they came out with merely a few hundred, I understand.

I think that she is try to get some of the votes away from Romney, so that Oboma will when. They know things are neck and neck, so if she can get as many fools as she can to vote for her knowing she hasn't a chance to win, Oboma might win. This whole thing is a big ugly joke on the people of America, and we are going to be the lossers.
