Okay so, at our new school Rancho Dominguez Prepetory School, we are not allowed to wear hats. But the thing is, some fast girls can wear what ever it is they want, but us students can not wear hats? Not only is it hats, it is also beanies and knitted caps. How come the adults can wear there hats, but we can't?
Some hats, beanies and knitted caps have no logo, so what's the problem? All I'm saying is, there is nothing wrong with wearing hats, so why can't we?
Just before Christmas my son Jeremy was beaten up by known gang members at school. As a result the boys were expelled and the police were going to prosecute them. My son was suspended for fighting. My husband and I have taken him out of school and are homeschooling because he was threatened by associates of the boys who were expelled.
This has been a very difficult time for my family and my son has been in therapy because he feels victimized everyday.
To the Right Honourable Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd,
On June 12, 2009, millions of Iranians, many of whom have friends and family here in Australia, went to the polls to elect their next president. Unlike the 2005 presidential elections where 48% of the electorate voted in run-off elections to choose Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, many more voters were expected to and did turn-out to vote against his disastrous domestic and foreign policies.
However, even before a tally of the votes could be taken Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his supporters declared victory with 63% of the popular vote. With lightning speed his rival’s campaign headquarters were closed, many of their leaders were arrested and a heavy police and paramilitary presence was brought into the streets. Are these the actions of someone who has won a free and fair election?
Although the world does not yet realize it, on June 13th we witnessed an unprecedented coup d’état veiled in the guise of a popular election. If this coup is allowed to succeed and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) are allowed to consolidate their power, not only will they pose a danger to the Iranian people, but will also become a much greater threat to the outside world.
The implications of this coup are far-reaching. Whereas before the hard-line elements in the IRGC were held in check by the Supreme Leader and the clergy, over the last four years they have come to assume a position of immense power in Iran.
This coup represents the consummation of their new position in the state, and has grave implications for the Iranian people, Australia and the Western world.
A child was assaulted during track tryouts and the other child got two days suspension and was still allowed to participate in the full track season. Also another student was put in in school suspension, and still is allowed to participate in the school. These extra school actives are a privilege for these students.
These students are taught you can do wrong and you are still about to represent the school district, even when the victims don't feel safe and have to stop doing what they love to do because the school district dosen't keep them safe.
Petition for all to have RAMP CEROMONIES.

Allow goats and chickens to be kept as pets, permitting they are not roosters. Goats and chickens are a great way to teach kids responsibility, respect, and love for animals. Goats are just like dogs they can be walked and played with and are very loving and gentle.
Goats are less noisy than dogs I know from experience, and cleaner too. Pigs are already accepted in La mesa as pets. Goats and chickens used to be permitted in my neighborhood until it was annexed into the city.
Our chickens are quiet and provide eggs for our family. People should be able to keep a reasonable amount of animals on their private property as long as noise levels are kept within reason and are not a nuisance.
Last year, at Alameda Senior High School, the staff and student body had a total of 45-50 minutes to enjoy the time between classes with a lunch period. This year (school year 08-09) the student body and staff have a mere 35 minutes to eat lunch.
The staff and students feel that the cut in the lunch period should be reinstated. After discussion with many of the staff members, and several students, 35 minutes is simply not enough time to have lunch. Standing in the lunch line at Alameda one volunteer commented, "It took 20 minutes just to get to the counter to purchase lunch, by the time I was able to sit down and eat, I had 5 minutes to eat my lunch."
Other High Schools in the district get between 40-50 minutes for lunch.
The circumstance under which our request should be granted are that the staff and students often go to class without a finished meal or finishing a meal.
Ok, so I'm not trying to preach to the world that ingesting animals is wrong....
By my own choice I try to eat meat as little as possible, due to some graphic
violent videos I've seen on how cruel Food Manufacturing Workers, are to the
animals that we do eat. To each their own.... right?
However, what really bothers me, is that now the FDA has approved cloning of
meats and allowing Biotech Firms, such as Viagen and Trans Ova Genetics of
Sioux Center, the 2 major firms in the U.S. involved, to integrate meats and
milk from these genetically identical cattle and other livestock, into our grocery
stores and restaurants, without having to label them???!!!!! Yes, we know
FastFood Restaurants are bad for us, but at least we are informed of their risks,
and we have the choice to eat it or not..... when this cloned meat, milk and its
byproducts (which includes, cheese, yogurt, icecream... and the many other
products derived or which include milk as an ingredient) are being allowed to be
intermingled with the real?
Astronomically, it really limits what we can knowingly or "safely," purchase or
ingest. I mean yes, there is always organic, however realistically, that is not as
easily accessible or affordable to the majority of the nation, which pretty much
leaves many with no choice.
Even as a very sporadic meat eater, I have a huge problem with this cloned
meat infiltration approved by the FDA. I have many friends and family, people
whom I care about and love that eat meat almost everyday.... I do not have a
problem with anyone choosing to eat meat, but I have a problem that they no
longer have a choice in where their meat comes from. And even, if I'm not
talking about "meat" itself, milk and the other byproducts are a staple in the
diet of many people in this country.
Cloned animals such as "Dolly the Sheep,"died prematurely of severe lung
disease and also suffered from arthritis at an unexpectedly early age.... and
even few cloned babies that appear to be normal at birth, we will have to wait
up to 20 years to make sure they are not going to have problems later, ie)
growing old too fast. Even a string of "healthy" clones produced, there is a
likelyhood that many clones born in the future may have severe medical
problems, as everytime a clone is made, it is like "throwing the dice." And yet,
that is what these Biotech Firms and the FDA are claiming is safe for us to put
into our system.
Though we may not see the possible effects of this in our generation, it breaks
my heart to even think about what birth defects, diseases and such, may
plague our generations to come.
And one also has to wonder..... why are we cloning meat to eat? Cloning is
actually is expensive and an extensive and time-consuming procedure, have we
injected and feed our livestock so many chemicals, anti-biotics, and hormones
that they are no longer able to reproduce on their own? It's not even so much
that my concern is that humans seem like they playing god, but in my opinion,
it seem very much like we keep sweeping the effects of us tampering with
nature under the rug and pretending that in our own little secretly, health
harming world, is nothing more than "perfect" and medically and technologically
advanced, instead of trying to solve the real problems.
No one is allowed to own wildlife in pa.
You are allowed to own some kinds, But not monkeys, hedgehogs, or surgar gliders!
Only because they are not native to Pennsylvania!
Please sign my petition because ALOT OF PEOPLE WANT WILDLIFE THAT WE ARE NOT allowed TO HAVE!
After hearing about the death of Mr. Gary Newlove, and the fact we ourselves are fighting the youths. That are allowed to run amok and cause fear, and dismay. These young people are constantly getting away with crime, violence and anti social behaviour and murder on a daily basis.
WHY are they being allowed to run around the country do as they please?
It is because the out of touch Judges and Magistrates and the Courts and ineffective and useless MP's and City Councillors and other "Do Gooders" who instead of helping the victims of crime.
See it more important to protect the rights of the scumbags and little toe rags who terrorise our streets and neighbourhoods around the UK.
This petition is written due to the controversy concerning the U.S. Appeals Court decision Allowing Dr. Mary Hanna, a Boston-based physician to legally breach a contract to serve in the Army as a medical officer on the grounds claiming that she is a conscientious objector.
Dr. Hanna accepted fully paid medical education scholarship from the Army and in exchange for receiving that scholarship signed a contract and gave her promise to give 8 years of service to military even after being given a promise by the Army that she would only be ordered to serve on staff as a physician in a military base hospital in Texas, she still refused to report to active duty.
Black period in Pakistan's history...
* disrespected the constitution of 1973
* declared emergency
* suspended and dissolved the judiciary
* banned media
* 1000's of people been detained
* 1000's of people harassed and beaten up
* demonstrations trough out the country
* 10,000's of people detained
* 10,000's of people harassed and beaten up
* Imran Khan arrested, harassed, humiliated by the police
* Under extreme pressure from Musharraf and the
government Geo News and Ary Oneworld has been shut
down late Friday night
Since the imposition of the emergency in Pakistan, Musharaf have not allowed people to hold demonstrations, public gatherings etc.
When ever or who ever have tried to organize a demonstration have been detained and harassed by the police - not only the organizers but also children, women and elders who are participating in the demonstrations are harassed and detained.
The media are not allowed to show the truth - they were approached by Government to sign a agreement on what they could show on TV - GEO and ARY refused, today, on the 16.11.2007 after tremendous pressure from Musharaf both channels has closed!
Musharaf is doing what ever he can do to hide the truth!

We ask for a safe area for the children to play sports and a playscape for the younger children.
After careful study, research, and consideration, many of the players in the local league have come to the conclusion that teams should be allowed to hit their own ASA approved softballs in league games.
Since 2004, participation has steadily decreased each season. We believe that has mainly become such because of the quality of equipment ASA has required for their sanction, particularly the game ball. Scores, batting averages, and the overall quality of the game itself has become such that individuals and teams have started going elsewhere to play their ball games.
Though, the ASA rules state we must used ASA approved bats, we feel as though the Recreation Department has not done an adequate job of properly maintaining the softballs and the quality of the product has not been satisfactory to many of the teams and players in the league. If allowed to hit the softball of our choosing, the teams will conceed to a home run limit, consisting of either 8 or 5 home runs per game.
For teams that are not as financially gainful as others, they would be allowed to purchase softballs directly from the Office of the Athletic Director. We feel this change is very necessary for the continue existance and prosperity of the league.
All donations to Savebabe.com will be used to help Animals Australia highlight the plight of this intelligent species.
Animals Australia firmly believes that the vast majority of Australians, once fully aware of the suffering of pigs in factory farms, will vote for change through the choices that they make. Informing them is crucial.
Our current advertisements and billboards which have assisted us to launch the savebabe.com campaign have been funded through the donations of caring Australians.
However, this is only the beginning - we need to reach every Australian.
In a recent edition of the British “Guardian Weekly” internationally renowned naturalist Lyall Watson commented about pigs, " I know of no other animals that are more consistently curious, more willing to explore new experiences, more ready to meet the world with open-mouthed enthusiasm".
Savebabe.com will work towards ensuring that these animals are provided with the world that they are meant to live in – not the one devoid of hope and sunshine that they currently endure in Australia.
Do you hate tiresome z list Celebrity TV Shows? Yes, thought you did!. This petition is in support of banning this distasteful trend which has blighted our nation.

BAN IT NOW!!!!
Have you heard about the "Andrea Yates" case? This is the woman who killed her five children. She claimed insanity and facts were proven she was mentally ill when she did it.
For many years there were factors of doctors stating this but she still was allowed to keep her children and have more. What about "LaShuan Harris" She did the same as Andrea Yates by drowning her three children also. They both said their kids needed to be saved and go to God by drowning them. Where does that leave the kids? Yes, dead.
Charlotte has allowed a construction company to buy the golf course and passed zoning on building low income government supported housing.
Our neighborhood has already been subjected to increased crime rates and lowered property value.
If these low income government supported houses/apartments are allowed to be constructed in our predominately working class privately owned suburban neighborhood, then our property value will plummet. We will become what Charlotte calls a challenged neighborhood. The values will go down and crime will definately increase. Drugs will infiltrate our neighborhood, dealers will line the streets and crime will increase to high proportions.
We do not want anymore trouble. This project has to be terminated. The golf course is the supposed construction site. Those houses used to be worth at least 120,000 plus. After the government housing arrives those houses will be lucky to sell at all.
The city steadily increases our taxes, but wants to take away what we worked hard to achieve and will make our investments worth less than what we paid.
Please help by signing this petition to stop the construction of government housing in our neighborhood.
Airsoft is a sport that is fun and legal.
Although it can cause severe injuries, Singaporeans should be sensible - play with protective gear like vests. The new generation of Singapore is changing.
The fundamental difference in airsoft and normal shooting ranges is that we all want to have a weapon to call it our own and play against each other.
Hence it is pointless to go to a range, spend money to shoot targets and go home.
The Singapore Government should make protective gear a necessary equipment for airsoft. And airsoft matches should have referees to supervise and ensure no foul play.
I believe the Singapore government can allocate several places for airsoft.
It has to be spacious. Abandoned buildings need not be demolished, it can re-converted into an airsoft facility. Warehouses are a good place as they are far from the public, so as to prevent any accidents between players and the public.
All airsoft weapons would have a ORANGE BARREL TIP as some countries have done. The ORANGE TIP is to acknowledge authorities upon Customs that this is not a real weapon.
After clearing Customs, all weapons would have to be transported from the Customs to the armory under armed guard, so as to ensure the weapon was not tampered by the owner until delivery at the airsoft facility.
All items related to airsoft should be transferred this way. Owners should NOT be allowed to increase their firing velocity, but allowed to upgrade things like a laser scope or a better handgrip. They should order through either the Airsoft Facility staff or online purchasing. Custom officers can check the address of the item, to ensure the address is that of the airsoft facility and not their home address. They should also be allowed to confiscate any upgrades which will increase the firing velocity.
Owners should be allowed to take home the weapon WITHOUT some part of the firing mechanism or the plastic pellets.
All weapons will be checked for the removal of the firing mechanism before exiting and owners should be checked to confirm that they do not conceal it or pellets. The parts should be sealed and labelled with the owner's name, and safely secured at the airsoft facility lockers.
Foreigners who have their own rifles in their own countries would probably like to bring them over if they have to work in Singapore.
They should send their rifles to Singapore, and have it checked at the Singapore Customs. The firing velocity must be between a range of 100 FPS - 280 FPS, the usual for stock rifles. After clearing customs. Their weapons must be delivered to the designated airsoft facilities.
It has already been confirmed that airsoft rifles CANNOT be changed to a real firearm. Even if robbers try to use these airsoft weapons to rob banks, they would have to consider the high probability of getting shot and killed.
Since airsoft is quite popular in other countries, i believe many foreigners would consider coming to Singapore to try out the new airsoft facilities. Economically speaking, if Singapore managed to have superb facilities, it would most certainly be a place to visit for airsofters, hence it would benefit both Singaporeans and foreigners.
Banning things like chewing gum are ok. They cause trouble. But Airsoft does not, with strict rules and regulations, i don't see why airsoft should be banned in Singapore.
Please make airsoft legal.

My three year old daughter was attacked while being looked after at a neighbour's house. Their border collie tore my daughters face, she needed 60 stitches and three operations, that is to date, she will need more in the future.
The dog is still allowed to live in there family home and it is to her discretion whether or not to have the dog destroyed as the dangerous dogs act only applies to dogs who bite in public.
This woman lives two roads down and still allows her dog to roam the street and walk freely around her home where her twin girls (also 3) live.
This dangerous dog should not be allowed to walk freely among her own children who are not old enough to understand the danger or to roam the street in front of her house.

Congratulations to Shayne for having the highest new chart entry for Stand by Me at No. 14.
We know that is an achievement, but we also know that Shayne will be disappointed, and so are we. He is an absolutely amazing singer but the songs do not get enough people excited enough to go out and buy the singles. It also means, disappointingly, that the millions of people who voted for him on X Factor are deserting him. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
On the X Factor, his best performance, (except for If You Not the One, which we all agree was amazing) were all up-tempo: Cry me a River, Take your Mama, the Darkness.
We remember him preparing for Cry me a River on Xtra Factor and Ben on camera saying, "did anyone know that Shayne had those moves?" Everyone was excited by it he could sing he could dance.. He looked amazing so WHAT HAS HAPPENED?
On the X Factor tour he wowed us with his performances, especially of Take Your Mama. He was the Shayne we had come to know and love from the X Factor: dynamic, sexy, hugely charismatic. But this isn't getting across now, WHY NOT?
Then No Promises got to No. 2, most likely on the back of his X Factor success and X Factor tour performance. Three months later, SBM, is released and virtually receives no airplay. The fact that it reached No. 14 with no airplay is absolutely amazing evidence of Shayne's loyal fanbase.
The problem is not with Shayne- he's singing is awesome, but as Simon once said, you are filling a Ferrari with diesel! The songs have to be simply outstanding to expose him to a wider non X Factor audience, a fact that you have seemed to miss entirely.
You seem to think that Shayne's audience is only interested in ballads. Do you know who Shayne's audience is? Because we are not all adolescents, or female.
Look at the other music threads on this forum. Has anyone at Sony done that, to see what appeals to Shayne fans? Although Shayne's young fans are very important and have an important part to play in his success, his fanbase is much broader than that..and yet we all want something different!

Legalize all Safe and Sane Fireworks in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

This petition is limited to the residents of Cedar Park City, Texas.
Cedar Park has proposed to join a Regional Williamson County Animal Shelter. This facility will house cats and dogs from Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock, Hutto, and the unincorporated areas of the county. The shelter proposed will have only 64 dog runs, 35 of which will be dedicated as adoption pens.
Presently Cedar Park Animal Control, which euthanizes only in very extreme cases, has 32 dog runs which adequately services the City of Cedar Park.
The new facility will not have the room for all four cities and the unicorporated area, and will inevitably resort to euthanization as a way to control their demand on resources and available pens. With this much area of responsibility they cannot adequately service conscientiously the citizenry they are responsible for.
Animal Control of Cedar Park is not allowed to advertise en masse its adoption services and and is allowed no ability to fundraise or promote itself in outreach programs.
We would like to request the City of Cedar Park not only to keep its Animal Control, instead of resorting to the regional facilty, but to allow Animal Control to perform functions that will help them in service to the citizenry of Cedar Park.

E-Mail Reply from Film Composer Dario Marianelli, regarding the score to "V For Vendetta"!
"I have no idea how certain websites got the list of 17 tracks. That was my selection, before Astralwerks forced me to reduce them to 10.
As I was only allowed 10 of my tracks on the CD, I edited together several of the tracks. For example, "V Storms the TV Tower" is now part of the very long first cue, instead of being a separate cue.
I also was only allowed about 55' of score on the soundtrack, and something had to go. The People Stand Up had very similar material to the second half of "The Dominoes Fall" and so I left it out.
I would love for people to hear the rest of the score, but I believe I cannot just send people tracks without an agreement from WB, which I have the feeling would be hard to get.
I did propose to Astralwerks to put the excluded tracks on their website, but they were unsure about rights. If anyone feels like looking further into this, maybe we can make it happen, I don't know.
Unfortunately it's a logistical nightmare to get permission and the only way forward would be if a significant number of people, lobbied Warner Brothers/Astralwerks and even then there's no guarantee.
This e-mail reply I received back form composer Dario Marianelli, is exactly WHY I am encouraging others, like myself, to sign this petition, in order to get these unreleased tracks, RELEASED ASAP!!!
Please sign this petition if you appreciate film scores as much as I do and if you loved the music from the movie or the film as well! Lets ALL show Warner Brothers & Astralwerks Records, that not only does Dario Marianelli, but also YOU and I ALL want the score released.
Tracks like, "The People Stand Up", towards the end of the film where all of London is dressed up like "V" and "Fingermen" where "Evey" is ruffled up by those men in the alley and then saved by "V" were the most sensational tracks I had ever heard, I hope you feel the same about them too.
I am hoping, by doing this petition, that we can get the labels to release the tracks that were NOT released on the cd. The following tracks were left off the cd:
7. Gordon's Secret
9. Evey Processed
14. How Freedom was Lost
17. The People Stand Up
I am doing my best to get these tracks released as the score was wonderful please help me in getting these unreleased tracks RELEASED, THANK YOU!!!
Thank You for reading this petition and Thank You Very Much, for signing it as well, Take Care, All!

One month ago, the above-mentioned frequenter of The Edge Nightclub was removed from the premises and barred. The reason behind these events lie within a questionable act which she performed within the confines of a cubicle in the women's bathroom.
She is aware that she and the other party involved were at fault and she apologises for this high-spirited incident and assures the management and staff of the venue that it shall not happen again.
Taking into account that she has been a frequent visitor of the club for 5 years, has assisted in organising past events, has DJed at the venue on occasion and that far worse acts have been perpetrated over the years, we feel she should be allowed a second chance and let back into the club, on the understanding that she is on her best behaviour.
At least 210 detainees have been on hunger strike since 11 August in protest at their conditions. An earlier hunger strike was stopped when the US authorities promised some changes. They reneged on these promises and the detainees have resumed their protest.
Anyone familiar with the Irish hunger strikes of the 1980s will realise that these detainees are at a critical stage - it's a matter of life and death. Please contact your civil representatives in European, national, regional and local bodies and urge them to press the American authorities, as a matter of urgency, to release those held without detention and allow families, medical practitioners and democratic representatives access to these detainees.
Detainees have now been held at Guantanamo for over three years without proper access to a due process of law. Their families are refused access and they are not even allowed proper access to their legal representatives and where that access is allowed unreasonable restrictions are placed on the lawyers concerned.
This situation needs to be resolved and proper rule of law established in places that are used as prisons by the American administraion and its allies.

For many years now, the rule on campus at St. Thomas Aquinas College, has been no visitor after 12. We feel that we are paying enough money to attend this college that we should be allowed to enter our neighbors room if we too live on campus. Honestly, money isn't even the issue here.
It's a matter of prinicple. College is an event that only happens once in your life. It is only right that we use this time and make it memorable. We're not asking for a lot we're just asking that we be allowed to enter our neighbor's room without a problem.
Few people realize that intelligent design is a science. It is a theory just as evolution is. However schools are not allowed to teach intelligent design, but they are allowed to teach evolution.
Students in our schools are only being exposed to one possible theory on the most primitive questions about our existence. Isn't it the duty of our schools to present students with the information they need to form their own conclusions? How can they be fulfilling their responsibilities if they are not allowed to teach intelligent design?
I personally am a Christian and believe that the theory of intelligent design is true, however my opinion on whether or not the theory of intelligent design is true is irrelevant.
If the theory of evolution is allowed to be taught despite its flaws, then intelligent design should also be taught in our public schools.
