And all the while, Washington passes secret bills, or bills without even giving all the pages of the legislation to the congressmen! This is the most illegal government my mom says she has ever seen in her 80 years!

How can a congressperson correctly vote when they don't even have the complete bill.

And where Obama does not want people to know what is going on, he does through executive orders and czars, illegally bypassing congress!

Don't kid yourself, soon nobody will have a job, or be able to afford the new taxes (that Obama promised he would not pass, but has broken his promise over and over!)

Autopsy Shows Cocaine Contributed to Billy Mays' Death
Friday, August 07, 2009

TAMPA, Fla. — An autopsy shows that cocaine use contributed to the death of boisterous TV pitchman Billy Mays, officials announced Friday.

The 50-year-old info-mercial king died of a heart attack in his sleep after going to bed at his Tampa condo the night of June 27. His wife found him unresponsive the next morning.

The Hillsborough County medical examiner's office Friday said although Mays died from heart disease, cocaine use was a contributing cause of death. Mays had last used cocaine days before his death, the report said.

The Mays family issued a statement Friday saying, "We are extremely disappointed by the press release released by the Hillsborough County medical examiner's office. We believe it contains speculative conclusions that are frankly unnecessary and tend to obscure the conclusion that Billy suffered from chronic, untreated hypertension, which only demonstrates how important it is to regularly monitor one's health."

According to the family's statement, Mays used prescription pain medication for a severe hip condition but always at recommended levels and under the guidance of his physician.

"We were totally unaware of any non prescription drug usage and are actively considering an independent evaluation of the autopsy results," the family said.

Mays was a pop-culture fixture with his energetic commercials pitching gadgets and cleaning products like Orange Glo and OxiClean.

He developed his style demonstrating knives, mops and other "As Seen on TV" gadgets on Atlantic City's boardwalk. For years he worked on commission on the state fair and home show circuits, attracting crowds with his booming voice and genial manner.

He got his start on TV on the Home Shopping Network and then branched out into commercials and infomercials. He developed such a strong following that he became the subject of a reality TV series, Discovery Channel's "Pitchmen."

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
