Everything you love about your radio station could be a thing of the past! Unless you act NOW! There are bills before congress that threaten free music on the radio.
The foreign owned record companies and misinformed artists want congress to establish a tax where stations would pay for the right to play music on the radio. This additional tax would change radio and put music radio stations in danger of going silent. Learn more…
Your radio station needs your help! By signing this petition and sending an e-mail to congress you are telling congress NOT to pass this tax on radio stations. Click below to sign the petition and save free radio! You also can make calls to your congressional leaders and email your friends.
Here;s the list of reasons:
1. Moral police would imprison and criminalize many innocent people because the world government or world court is offended by innocent peoples beliefs and actions.
2. If the world government became compromised there could be no revolution because the whole worlds guns and weapons would be confiscated therefore the whole world could become controlled in a dictatorship or cu-da-ta. That logic basically means a New World Order a whole world under control of a very few moral mongers and powerlord elites.
3. Many cultures will be destroyed because the moral police might decide certain normal cultures are immoral and may ban it worldwide therefore cultural persecution is legal worldwide.
4. Many religions will be destroyed because the moral lords might consider a certain religion to be immoral or has been tied up into another religion or is worshipped in a religion and wants to bar others for their own selfish cults.
5. The One World Government will wreck world/state sovereignty and end peoples loyalty to any country, and it also means that freedom and liberty may be at large risk and the start of a totalitarian society.
6. A One World Government will decide the laws of all and nobody could fight it because guns would be banned and they can't run from the world police either so bad laws would be enforced worldwide and no choice to be in a country you agree with.
7. There's no guarantee that there will be no corruption in this world government system because countries always fall and dictators always rise throughout history, and so what makes people think a One World Government will be any solution to any problem.
8. The rights of going to another country will be taken and there will be no escaping or fighting the system thats forced upon you.
9. Dirty, underhanded, and sneaky tactics have been used to bring fourth this One World Government and so the World Governance proposal has never been honest and so this would wreck all hopes of a better democracy worldwide.
10. This World Government would wreck everything our fore fathers and other liberty following, freedom supporting, patriots worldwide and would destroy all the work they have done for our country even though they made a few mistakes such as slavery we don't need to destroy the progress we have made with ending slavery forever.
11. A World Government may mean personal enslavement and the end to establishing our own identities while forcing world citizens to submit to world authority and invest their identity in this global government.
12. They would have control of food supplies and natural resources/minerals worldwide and can restrict or even deny food to hungry people.
13. The World Government will be run by the very few while billions will be forced to submit to the opinions and law making decisions of the very super few (No majority of people approval), and even if the majority approved of a decision it would be a threat to minorities of people throughout the world and would deny their personal rights and freedoms.
The popular internet service company Yahoo! Inc. has recently begun testing a redesign of their web site. This is an unwelcome change and it is being forced on a unwilling and unsuspecting public.
This petition is a simple one, with one single goal. To stop Yahoo! from testing this new version of their popular internet website and from eventually replacing the current version with this abomination.
To see it for yourself simply type in www.m.yahoo.com on a computer and u will be directed to it. But i do strongly advise against. If you do choose to see it, please proceed with cation. The layout and color scheme is more than enough to bring a man to tears let alone a child or young adult.
To educate students, schools use paper and electricity extensively. Paper is used for worksheets, written exercises, textbooks, novels, and other products that are made from trees, which supply the planet oxygen and help reduce the effects of global warming.
By consuming the carbon emissions that pollute our atmosphere and alarmingly intensify the greenhouse effect, trees help cool the planet, but by cutting down more and more of them, we are escalating the effects of global warming and causing the polar ice caps to melt from the heat of the intensified greenhouse effect.
By using electricity extensively in schools, we are burning coal and releasing more and more carbon emissions into the atmosphere and strengthening the greenhouse effect even more. As this causes the melting of polar ice caps, we can already see what happens when it continues. As ice breaks up and melts in the warmer waters, polar bears and stranded in the water and will eventually drown.
Shorelines are advancing from the excess water from melted glaciers added into the ocean, and beaches are shrinking rapidly. If we don't do anything before its too late, we may make entire coastlines disappear from the swelling sea levels and entire species become extinct from lack of habitats.
In October 2007, Representative Mike McIntyre pledged to address climate change. Nearly two years later, he has done absolutely nothing to address the issue.
Enough Talk, Let's See Some Action! North Carolina residents and UNCW ECO are holding Representative Mike McIntyre accountable and calling for immediate climate action.
* WATCH the video and forward it to every North Carolina resident you know! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZL9TU4M6l0
* CALL Rep. McIntyre at (202) 225-2731. Demand that he take global warming seriously. There is a sample script for calling, below.
* WRITE President Obama, and ask him to rejoin the international community by signing a global climate change treaty. The opportunity to pass a global treaty will arise at the December 2009 UN Climate Negotiations in Copenhagen, and President Obama must be a leader on climate change issues. https://secure3.convio.net/gpeace/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=472
Our elected officials work for us! Make your voice heard. Demand science-based reductions on global warming pollution.
For the sake of the health and livelihood of future generations, demand science-based climate action now!
Taxes are being collected on the sale of the same item multiple times. Taxes have already been collected on goods that are offered up for consignment, resale and recycling and in the efforts of environmental responsibility and accountability.
Too often we are hearing of child abuse cases which have gone unreported and consequently ended in the death of a child. If all those who came forward with information after a child has died, reported their concerns before the child was murdered, then maybe some of these children would still be alive today.
According to the charity, Action for Children, a quarter of adults in the UK have worried that a child they know may be neglected, but over a third did not act on their concerns. Hence, the public must be made aware that through voicing their concerns, no matter how small they may seem, they could potentially save a child's life.
This public service advertising campaign should convey a message that child abuse MUST be reported. It should outline the warning signs of abuse and neglect so it can be more easily recognised, and it should provide information on how to report suspected abuse and neglect.
We all come to login on Wednesdays to find that the relms are off-line again. It has got to the point were it is doing my head in.
I think they should do all the maintenance 1 day a month instead of every week. Please help and give your support by signing.
The UMG has to much power! I had to remove or "audio swap" over half of my videos. So This Last video I have made, I got a copyright complaint. This was the last straw, I am done with this rubbish. So i did some research, Which you can find on my video Petition at http://www.Youtube.com/viproductions12.
Now in this research, i came across some interesting info; for one, i looked up the song that has been reported for copyright "Warrior's Soul" By "Kiuas" Not only did i not find that particular "Warrior's Soul" song, I couldn't even find one song by "Kiuas" To back up my info, I visited The Universal Music Group website, I also browsed through their selection of songs and artists, So as of right now I think UMG has to much power.
I understand that they have the right to claim music that is owned by them. But when they claim songs that are not theirs, it is going to far.
- Every year, in Europe, more than 19,000 non-smokers die because of passive smoking!
- Risk of heart disease increases by 25% for those exposed to second-hand smoke.
- 85% of cigarette smoke is produced between puffs.
- 10 times more people die from second-hand smoke inhaled at home than at work.
- Banning smoking in public places reduces lung cancer by 8% and asthma or chronic bronchitis by up to 30%.
- Children under 5, in 3rd World countries have to work on farms and in factories to collect tobacco and produce cigarettes all day, just to get paid in cigarettes which they eventually become addicted to.

Canadian Sand and Proppants is trying to build a massive Silica Sand Processing facility WITHIN the city of Chippewa Falls, WI.
They sent their secret agents into the area to buy up the sandstone hills and negotiated with the Planning commission and City Council to get the permits and funding without revealing that they wanted to bring this air polluting heavy industry into our clean little town. This appears to be a test case to see if they can get a combination mine and processing plant into a small town.
Concerned Chippewa Citizens was formed in haste to try and stop the nearly completed approval process, and with two lawsuits have at least slowed them down. Unfortunately these big companies have targeted upper Wisconsin and are trying to take the unique sand we have and leave us like looking like West Virginia. If we can stop them here perhaps we can stop the whole invasion
Violence against women is broadly defined as any act that is likely to cause physical, sexual, or psychological harm or extreme suffering to a woman. Violence can occur in the home, workplace, or community.
Two common forms of violence against women are domestic violence and rape. This cause is specially created focusing on the domestic violence against women.
We all remember the days, you know when YouTube didn't change their layout every week. Or post advertisements on the actual videos.
This very thing (ads) has forced me to stop using YouTube.com because almost every video I watch has an ad pop-up on it!
In 2003 the RSPCA successfully banned the docking of the tails of dogs with the sad excuse that it hurts them, that it is un-necessary and that it's only done for looks. This completely un-informed statement has led to the suffering of many Rottweiler's and Doberman's.
I have worked with these dogs, both with the tails docked and the inhumane non-docked tails. These dogs have great personalities, however the dogs with the un-docked tails suffered back and hind leg problems caused by the weight of the tail, hygiene problems (with their natural cleanliness) which caused extreme pain, and repeated tail injury from working with cattle and from general dog life in the bush. I don't like to see these dogs suffer.
Two of these dogs had to be put down due to the problems that their tails had caused as their hind legs as well as the injuries to their tails caused by just being dogs, running and playing.
Speeding is what a lot of teens and adults are doing lately. You may have started or been part of a crash, but do you want that again?
No, so please stop the speeding.
A planning application has been lodged for a small plot of semi natural woodland to be developed into housing. 10 (7+3) terraced courtyard houses are proposed.
The plot consists of an east facing railway embankment; a narrow strip of land between the railway and Hayburn Lane, with around 80 mature and semi mature trees, bushes and natural undergrowth, which is bordering a recognised wildlife corridor running along the railway.
This small bit of Hayburn Lane is a quiet back lane, belonging to the properties of Hayburn Crescent, Victorian blond sandstone tenements, built in the 1880s.
The railway embankment and the lane are used by local children as a ‘wild’ place where they can play and build dens. A lot of people walk their dogs along the lane, and it is also used as a shortcut by pedestrians and cyclists. The trees form a natural screen from the busy railway line. The only traffic in the lane is currently the refuse collection and the odd delivery to the back gardens of Hayburn Crescent.
To make way for the buildings the developers would have to remove all trees, bushes and ground covering vegetation, dig out and remove the railway embankment, which would completely destroy the green space.
There have never been any houses or mews here before, and it would change the back lane into a street with traffic. The proposed courtyard houses are not in keeping with the buildings in the conservation area, nor to the required standard for new builds.
There have been 3 earlier planning proposals, which have been rejected due to the plot’s unsuitable position and size, as well as problems with access and traffic.
Therefore we ask you for your support, and by signing this petition request Glasgow Glasgow City Council Development and Regeneration Services to stop this development, and instead keep the railway embankment at Hayburn Lane as a green space and amenity for the good of the community!
Human trafficking has been referred to as ‘modern day slavery’. It is a multi billion-dollar market worldwide.
Most often women and children are the victims of human trafficking.
United Nations has estimated that four million people are trafficked throughout the world each year. We believe this number is far too high.

Very few of us out here are bad parents despite what is said. I personally feel i may have been inadequate at times and lacked the knowledge i needed, but i also know i have spent years crying out for help, like so many others , it as a cry for help that was seldom heard, meaning the help and support just never came,
With this in mind why is it that our kids are locked up and taken away by a huge team of people, almost like an enemy all supporting the other, you have to see him behind a glass screen, finally able to look you in your eyes, but the look he gives you is a scared child look, their eyes red from crying, and you can almost see his heart beating,
The cuffs get slapped on and someone takes them away, slowly they walk looking back, trying to let you know what they feel in the last blink of their eye, you then have to leave court, it’s the hardest walk to make, that constant feeling that you have left something behind,
Why then are we not allowed to see our child to offer and hug or words of wisdom, when we all know that a little love can go a long way....instead we are forced to leave the building and wait for days to find out how they are.
That young person by this stage must be hungering for some reassurance, companionship and love, but when a parent is unable to provide it, they walk straight into the groomer who sees a vulnerability, the great person who will take them under the wing ....
We need to fight for the right to spend a short time with our kids before they are sent away, courts should work with us, institutions should consult us about what we feel i child needs while in their care....
It is vital that parents get the support they need and are involved in decision making about the child, especially given that in the main they will be the people left to cope when the child returns to the community.
TIME TO FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHT TO PROTECT OUR YOUNG.
Bankruptcy laws have been in place for decades. Why is the United States not letting these businesses go into bankruptcy and joining in as a creditor with cash to keep them operating until they can correct this mess.
We say stop this buy out of the private sector by our taxes and let the system work itself out!

TESCO are proposing to open a giant 130,000 ft2, 24 Hour Tesco Extra store at Wallneuk Industrial Estate on Renfrew Road.
The development will be outside the town centre.
The store will be bigger than all other supermarkets in Paisley combined.
The site will cater for over 700 car parking spaces
As a Tesco Extra, it is set to be far bigger than an ordinary food retail outlet. It will turn over hundreds of thousands of pounds per week by selling close to a hundred thousand different goods, not just groceries, but clothing, electrical goods, entertainment goods and many other household items.
Stop Tesco Owning Paisley says that:
This development should be opposed on several grounds, some generally against supermarket development and some specific to the proposals for Paisley.
This is for all the Twilighters who want to see Taylor Launter in the next movie series of twilight. As you know, there has been a frenzy of replacing Taylor for a more 'older' and 'bulky' Jacob.
However, we want to keep Taylor in New Moon as he is a great actor and deserves he chance to reveal his true potential!
84. Stop Landmines
The Ottawa Treaty was passed in 1997 to prohibit the use, stockpiling, production, and transfer of all anti-personnel landmines. Since 1997, 153 countries have signed and ratified this treaty, yet the United States has not.
The United State continues to produce and plant landmines and currently stockpiles over 11 million of them. Every 20 minutes someone steps on a landmine, that is 72 people a day, 80% of which are civilians.
A controversial cull of hundreds of kangaroos at a defence site in Canberra has begun, despite the pleas of animal welfare activists for it to be called off.
Dozens of kangaroos today were herded into pens before disappearing behind hessian screens, where some were apparently euthanized.
Despite no official confirmation of the cull, witnesses at the site said the tranquillising and killing of the animals had begun.
The stop-start cull of about 400 eastern grey kangaroos on the former naval site in suburban Belconnen has attracted international media attention.
The Department of Defence says the cull is necessary to protect native grasslands and threatened species, and avoid starvation among the kangaroos.
The planned method of slaughter is to tranquillise the animals with the use of darts and then kill them with a lethal injection.
Onlookers said they saw animals being herded into a fenced-off pen and a covered trailer was seen arriving and departing the area.
A nearby worker, Stewart Darville, told AAP he believed "eight or nine" of the animals had been killed by early afternoon.
He and other onlookers said kangaroos were being moved in lots of about half a dozen into an secondary pen surrounded by hessian material.
AAP witnessed at least three jump the nearly three-metre-high fence around the area where the animals were to be darted.
Another roo, which possibly escaped after being darted, was seen lying lifeless on the ground.
I may be only 16 but killing off hundreds of animals because someone can't be bothered paying OUR tax money to simply re-locate them is completely just idiotic and frustrating.
My neopets account (Which had 160,000 np, tons of trophies, and 10 pirate paintbrushes that I was selling for VERY cheap) got banned for "chain mailing".
I was only having a conversation with my friend! that is NOT a reason to be banned. I hope this gets the neopets team to change their minds.
The Tennessee Titans, Nashville Predators, and Nashville Sounds all currently receive millions of dollars of tax generated funding to operate each year. Each of the sports facilities (LP Field, The Sommet Center, and Greer Stadium) used by these teams operate at a loss each year. These sports facilities mirror a national trend of sporting facilities to operate at a loss. While some are calling for taxpayer funding to build a new stadium, it is time to realize the insanity of funding sports facilities with tax dollars.
The Heartland Institute estimates professional sports facilities cost taxpayers some $500 million a year. A typical sports facility costs local taxpayers more than $10 million a year. According to The Brookings Institution, a new sports facility has an extremely small (perhaps even negative) effect on overall economic activity and employment. No recent facility appears to have earned anything approaching a reasonable return on investment. No recent facility has been self-financing in terms of its impact on net tax revenues.
In the long run, taxes imposed on businesses in or near the stadium will actually decrease business in those areas and thus decrease revenues both in the immediate area near the sports facility and throughout the rest of the community.
It is our goal to help persuade Mayor Karl Dean and the local Nashville Government to abandon funding facilities like a new Nashville Sounds Stadium with tax money. We understand the reality that no mater how wonderful a team is, it simply will never make economic sense to subsidies the team or a new stadium for the team with taxpayer funds.

The crisis in Darfur presents the largest humanitarian disaster since the Rwanda genocide in 1994. Over 800,000 men, women, and children have been killed, and that number is only getting bigger.
Every day the people of Darfur are systematically killed and raped for no apparent reason. The people of Darfur cannot turn to their own government as their government supports the groups committing these atrocities.
Not only does the government support these groups, but they are supplying them with weapons and ammunition. The people of Darfur must turn to other aid, but as the west turns their back on these people, they are left alone to die.
More than 1.8 million people affected by the continuing crisis in Darfur, Sudan. The situation in the strife-torn region remains extremely volatile.
More than 200,000 Sudanese have fled to neighbouring Chad and 1.6 million people, who have been displaced internally, are living in desperate conditions inside Darfur where there has been a complete breakdown in security.
