The path to Citizenship

Charlie Sheen

Unfortunately, not all natural born citizens make our country proud. However, America is indeed a proud melting pot. It's still the greatest nation on earth, especially since we let idiots like this run loose, and still maintain and even defend their right to free speech.

Carlos Irwin Estevez (born September 3, 1965), better known by his stage name Charlie Sheen, is an American actor.

His character roles in films have included Chris Taylor in the 1986 Vietnam War drama Platoon, Jake Kesey in the 1986 film The Wraith, and Bud Fox in the 1987 film Wall Street. His career has also included more comedic films such as Major League, the Hot Shots! films, and Scary Movie 3 and 4. On television, Sheen is known for his roles on two sitcoms: as Charlie Crawford on Spin City and as Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men. In 2010, Sheen was the highest paid actor on television, earning $1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men.[2] Sheen's personal life has also made headlines numerous times, including reports about marital problems and drug abuse.

Sheen in March 2009

September 11 attacks

On March 20, 2006, Sheen stated that he questions the US government's account of the September 11 attacks.[21] Sheen said during the interview that the collapse of the World Trade Center towers looked like a controlled demolition.[22][23]

Sheen has since become a prominent advocate of the 9/11 Truth movement.[24] On September 8, 2009, Sheen appealed to US President Barack Obama to set up a new investigation into the attacks. Presenting his views as a transcript of a fictional encounter with Obama, he was characterized by the press as believing the 9/11 commission was a whitewash and that the administration of former US President George W. Bush may have been responsible for the attacks.[25][26][27]

On January 27, 2011, Sheen was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by paramedics. Sheen's representative said the actor was suffering from "severe abdominal pains".[55] On January 28, Sheen began undergoing a substance rehabilitation program in his home[56] and CBS announced that Two and a Half Menwould go into hiatus.[57] The network subsequently announced that the season then underway and due to film its last four episodes was canceled after Sheen made offensive comments about the creator and lead writer of Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre, on the February 24 edition of a radio broadcast hosted by Alex Jones.[58]

On February 28, 2011, Sheen publicly demanded a 50 percent raise for the show "Two and a Half Men" [59] Although he is already the highest paid actor on television, Sheen demanded 3 million dollars per episode.[60]
