In an annual report sent to Congress Monday, the US Sentencing Commission announced it had amended federal sentencing guidelines to lower the sentences imposed on people convicted of federal crack cocaine offenses.
Unless Congress takes affirmative action to block the move, it will go into effect on November 1. The report also urged Congress to address the 100:1 sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine sentences.
Under the controversial crack laws, people convicted of distribution offenses involving five grams of the drug face five-year mandatory minimum prison sentences, while it takes 500 grams of powder cocaine to trigger the same penalty. Similarly, someone convicted of distributing more than 50 grams of crack faces a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence, while it would take five kilograms of powder cocaine to get the 10 years.

While now we are hearing of how many times John Kerry has not been present to vote on certain issues; we must not allow our Senators and Congressmen to collect their salaries if they fail to show up to vote.
Our tax dollars pay these people. No American company would continue to pay employees who did not show up to work.
"THREE STRIKES AND YOU'RE OUT"
We tax payers demand our Reps to do their jobs. If you fail to show up to vote three times, you must be fired, recalled or whatever it takes to get you out!

This is a petition to rebutt the one to ban Tourney Playing in Uproar/Flipside Social Rooms. The leagues that operate in these rooms do a lot of work to host fun games for players that enjoy. These players also bring new players to Uproar/Flipside and support the playsite a great deal. Also, the tourney playing only takes up a few tables at a time and in no way interfere with non tourney playing.
Ohio adoption records need to be opened. More and more people are looking for biological relatives even years after they think adoption is the best way to go. I'm in this category. I think that it takes away the rights of everyone involved to close these records.
I vote to rid our planet of the dirty, stinking smokers who have little regard for others when they light up.
It only takes one smoker in a room to destroy 100 other people's fresh air. It only takes one smoker to kill not only themself but numerous others with passive smoking. It only takes one smoker to create a burden on the health care system, which takes money away from the people who need it (and haven't contributed to making themselves ill). I have no compassion for the rights of smokers, because no smokers have any sense of responsibility for any one else when they light up (let alone themselves).
