Woman’s yard sale to pay medical bills gets shut down


A woman fighting a terminal form of bone cancer is trying to raise money to help pay bills with a few weekend garage sales, but the city of Salem says she’s breaking the law and is shutting her down.

Jan Cline had no idea, but the city of Salem has a clear law that states a person can only have three yard sales a year.

Cline has been selling her stuff in the backyard for a few weekends and said she thought she’d be fine by keeping the sale out of everyone’s way.

“It’s a struggle,” Cline says. “It’s a struggle for me because I’m very independent, used to taking care of myself.”

She’s run businesses and supported herself for years but this summer she was diagnosed with bone cancer.

“It’s a bone marrow cancer that eats through the bones and causes holes in the bones so that just by walking I can break a bone,” she says.

    Who the hell gets paid to count yard sales? (How much?).

     This is "government" doing all it is capable of doing: harassing citizens. It really grates on thes pukes when they think someone might exchange somehting of value for somehting else of value, without their getting their "fair share" - for doing absolutely nothing except existing. This scores off the KMA chart!

      What's really sick is that people actually voted for the lame--- pseudo-humans, who support this crap. Again, sociopaths have little to no conscience. They are generally so far out of the evolutionary loop as to believe they've had a conjugal three-way when they've used both hands. (Welcome to the Gestapo Follies!)

       This goes a long way toward whether or NOT I will ever travel or do business anywhere inside the Oregon Gulag. (Word has it that the state dildo is a cactus.)
