Child abuse...Bullying...they aren't the same thing but have the same message: "Innocent children being HURT, scarred FOREVER". Governments MUST take a stand against this.
Me, the creator of this petition, is just 15 years old...Yes, I am young. To most of you adults, I'm just a child. But a child can have VERY strong opinions, and mine goes to this subject.
Even if I was never a victim of child abuse, I have been a victim of bullying for many, many years. In school, I growed up alone, or when I wasn't, I was just being hurt. All this to say...I know the pain it inflicts in people who are at the mercy of the bullies...and I'd do anything for a child not to have to suffer it...
Everyone in the world today is extremely strong but at the same time of an incredible weakness. Everyone in the world today will make mistakes, will lose his way at times. When those times happen... it's support we need... we all need it one day or another... maybe one day, it will be you...
...so today, please sign this petition for a child in who needs support or encouragement. To let know to the government that the world's children are being beaten down before even standing up. To let know to th e government that we all care for the esrth's children and that we want measures to be taken, plans to be made, laws to be created, to stop the young, innocent ones, from becoming heart broken before even learning the true meaning of love....

Playstation 2 is by far one of the greatest video game console system ever made. Features like a DVD player and 128 bit graphics make PS2 a force to be reckoned with. Everyone wants to own one, but with the increase in prices, not many people can afford it. The retail price is now $199.00, that still isn't cheap enough to afford it. So make the right decision and sign this petition, together we can help low down the price.

This is being Sent to MSN to let them know that we Webbies are MAD about their latest attempt to save money by cutting us off from Talk City because they were too CHEAP to pay a higher rate!
Sometime in May when Talk City raised their rates to use their services, MSN said "NO" to the higher rate therefore cutting the Webtv Users off from using Talk City as our chat line. Some of us Webbies have been chatting in Talk City since we first came online. This petition is being sent to MSN to let them know "WE ARE MAD!! They cut their expenses, but ours stayed the same each month. We are the Customer WE should be the ones saving money, not them. And Talk City came up with a brilliant idea: Lets charge the webbies $12.00 a year for them to use our website, since MSN refused to pay the increase. Some of you have paid it, but if you are like me, you already pay enough for your ISP Service, and can't afford to pay more.We have a right to appeal and we are!!! Some of us made friends in Talk City, and we even had our own little family, and now they want to cut us off from that?? Don't let MSN run us. PC users need to sign this too, in support for us Webbies. Thank You

Arthritis: Many Victims, Not Enough Funding
It's the disease Americans are most likely to get, but advocates say more money is needed for research
By John Reinan

SATURDAY, Jan. 12 (HealthScoutNews) -- As the baby boom generation ages, its members may be thinking about their vulnerability to such illnesses as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
But the odds are good they haven't given much thought to the disease they're most likely to get: arthritis.
Arthritis currently afflicts 43 million Americans, and that number is projected to rise to 60 million over the next 20 years.
"It is a serious problem that is not taken seriously," says Dr. John Klippel, medical director of the Arthritis Foundation.
"A very high percentage of Americans will get arthritis," he says. "Arthritis is becoming one of the more common medical conditions in this country. We've known for a long time that it is the leading cause of disability.
"But I think the general impression for most people is that arthritis simply means aches and pains. And they think of it as something that only affects old people," Klippel says.
Although it's true that the majority of arthritis sufferers are older adults, some forms of the disease -- such as lupus -- strike younger people most often. And more children have juvenile arthritis than have juvenile diabetes.
Arthritis comes in many forms, but the most common is osteoarthritis. That's the variety that attacks cartilage and bones around joints in the body, and it accounts for about half of all arthritis cases.
In osteoarthritis sufferers, the cartilage in their joints becomes damaged and disappears over time. The bone under the cartilage becomes stiff and hard, and there may be growths (called bone spurs) around the margins of the joint.
Scientists still aren't completely certain what causes osteoarthritis, although they have identified some risk factors.
"We know that injury to the joint is a factor," Klippel says. "People in their teens and 20s who injure a knee playing sports, for example, are at a very high risk of getting osteoarthritis."
Aging is another risk factor. Something happens during the aging process that speeds up the destruction of cartilage.
"It is not just the wearing out of cartilage," Klippel says. "It's not like a tire going bald. For reasons we don't understand, the cartilage becomes damaged."
As with so many chronic diseases, obesity also plays a role.
"People who are overweight are at increased risk for developing osteoarthritis, particularly of the knees," Klippel says. "People in their 20s and 30s and 40s should understand that this is just another reason to pay attention to your weight."
Klippel and others at the foundation are hoping to raise public awareness of arthritis and get more government money for research. Despite the high numbers of Americans with arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation operates with far less money than similar organizations devoted to other diseases.
"The American Cancer Society's budget is about $800 million a year. Ours is about $130 million," says Tino Mantella, chief executive officer of the Arthritis Foundation. "The level of support we get from the government is low relative to other diseases."
Mantella hopes to raise money from the private sector as well, pointing out that arthritis costs the nation $80 billion a year in medical expenses and lost productivity.
"We need to convince business and industry that, with the right resources, over time it's going to cost them a lot less to support research than it will cost them from days missed at work and medical expenses from insurance," he says.
Treatment for arthritis starts with basic over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen (found in Tylenol) and ibuprofen (found in Motrin and Aleve).
For more severe cases, cortisone injections into the joints can be helpful, and the Food and Drug Administration recently approved an artificial joint fluid for use in the knee.
Recent years have seen a surge in advertisements for the supplements glucosamine and chondroitin. Klippel says glucosamine has proven to be effective in relieving arthritis pain, although he says more study is needed to determine the effectiveness of chondroitin.
And as a last resort, patients can opt for knee or hip replacement surgery.
"These have become very common operations," Klippel says. "And they can really restore a person's life. These surgeries are very effective and quite safe."
But the most important step in dealing with arthritis, Klippel says, is the most basic one.
"It's people taking control -- being responsible for your arthritis and not letting it take over your life," he says. "When one is confronted with arthritis, you do have some choices.
"But you have to determine that you're going to do something about it, and not just have the attitude that going to the doctor is a waste of time and you're just going to have to live with it," he adds.

1852. STOP THE SCANDAL
This petition is stop the scandal with the hiring of Mr. Benny Pinaula to the company "Loco Boutique" as an Area Manager. This petition clarifies the reason for him to be hired in the first place, and all the hurt he has caused to his previous employers and staff. This man is guilty of practicing sexual harassment to his employees. He has gotten away with too much, and is expected to get away with it again. He is a fake and a huge pervert, and she be kept away from all females and parents should keep them away from their daughters. He only got hired because of a recommendation from another sexist pig that is very powerful on the island of Guam. But he who did recommend him has run away to Japan, to hide from the mess he caused. Please support this petition to stop the Scandal and support equality and fairness for all the minorities who suffered the abuse under the supervision of Benny!!!

This petition is to expel Greece from the European Union. Greece is violating European Citizenship Convention forcing its citizens abroad to military service and denying Greek citizens right to Greek passport when applying for foreign citizenship.
This is unacceptable a day before expansion of the European Union and could create the precedence for similar situation in Poland and other new members of European Union.
The Greek citizens in the USA, mainly army enlists, are suspected to force citizens of Eastern European countries to military service in their country and block legal immigration.
The aim of this petition is to encourage Ronan Keating to include Tasmania in his upcoming Australian tour. There are many Tassie fans who would love to see Ronan in concert, so if you're one of them and don't want to be left out please sign our petition.
At Sindy.com you are given the option to send Sindy an e-mail, perhaps for comments, suggestions etc, and i think that it is unfair that she will not respond to you. If you don't want to respond to our mail, then why do you give people the option to email you?
The least she could send is an automatic e-mail, at least thanking the person for their comments, after people take up their time and effort to e-mail her. This petition is just to bring awareness to this, and show that even small things, like an e-mail from a child's play-thing, can mean so much to certain people, and considering that she is in constant competition with Barbie, you'd think that she would at least show appreciation to those who favour her over Barbie.
Sindy...tut tut. You'd think that after people bother to take up their time and effort to go onto her website(www.sindy.com) and e-mail her, that she could at least reply!! Even if it is just a mail-merged automatic e-mail!! When i sent her an e-mail, and the message came up saying that she wouldn't respond, i was very annoyed, and i'm sure there are others out there who feel the same. This may seem a bit petty, but to her millions of loving fans and customers who buy her dolls, it is rather a disappointment...so bear this in mind, and sign the petition!!
Exercise your right to expect appreciation of the highest quality when you take up your time to write so someone!! (Or in this case, a multi-million dollar company, who i'm sure could spare a few words here and there to give thanks to their adoring e-mailers!!)
