WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DO NOT WANT THIS HEALTH CARE REFORM.
MY HUSBAND IS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER AND WE CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY 1200.00 A MONTH FOR INSURANCE AND 200.00 TO 300.00 A MONTH FOR POWER AND BE ABLE TO FEED OURSELVES...
SO TELL ME HOW CAN SOMEONE THAT WORKS A 7.25 DOLLAR A HOUR JOB BE ABLE TO DO THIS?
Legalization ( End Prohibition ) and Reform ( Current Laws ), of the current laws and policies which govern the use of Marijuana in the United States, it is time to seriously look into abolishing Prohibition of Marijuana, and change the laws accordingly to this issue.
Each and every year medical science has stated that the use of marijuana is safer than alcohol,and should not be listed as a narcotic, is not as addictive as once was thought, and has far more uses in the medical arena in the treatment for patients either terminal,or chronic, and safer as a alcohol alternative. With current standing laws more than 800000, people this year have been arrested, and many either white collar or blue collar workers, taxpayers and voters such as yourselves their lives destroyed, jobs lost.
Laws like these are not a deterrent, with more than 100 million plus users of marijuana and growing each year there has to be Open mindedness, and change. More money 10 billion yearly, and more over a trillion since President Nixion was in office for the war on drugs, this money which could've been better spent on programs for schools, parks, the poor, etc. the time is now to tell our representatives that it is enough, it is a time for change.
Many of us say that our city is wonderful, those who live in a good environment. But has anyone really thought about what its like for people to live is fear in their homes?
Personally my family is in danger because they are looking for justice, many of their neighbors can’t say anything because if they do they themselves will get in trouble by gang members. And for a person that is trying to get a lot of people to understand that not all the police officers are working their most, I'm not saying anyone police officer in particular, there are people that are trying to help but not enough.
My sister had to look herself for her stolen property, she called the cops and finally they got some one arrested for violating her property, yet one was released on the same day.
I know I’m not the first to bring this up but we really need to get it together, because there are people getting killed trying to support and take care of their families.
Other countries have a No Confidence provision in their laws in order to remove elected officials from office. I believe that this would be a benefit to the United States as well.
Currently, we have an Impeachment process that can be cumbersome, expensive and drawn-out.
A No Confidence Vote is a simple matter and can be written in such a manner as to provide for an orderly transition of power and in a way that the priviledge would not be able to be abused.
Vechile accidents have long been to blame for the highest number of teenage deaths in the United States. Statistics show that teenage drivers, under laws now, are still at high risk of getting into accidents that could endanger not only their lives, but the lives of all those on the road.
With revisions to the currents laws teenage drivers would gain more experience, and become more intelligent, safer drivers and the bring the potential for the decreasement of their involvement in roadway accidents and deaths
Seriously, give Texas back to Mexico.
All over the world children are suffering from many different causes. Diseases and hunger are two of these suffering that many know about; but what about the ones that are not as talked about, child trafficking.
Nearly 18,000 to 20,000 men, women and children are trafficked in the United States alone. These children go through hours of sexual torment which can be stopped. We need to rally together to get these numbers down and we also need help to get this in action.
So please, just sign it will only take you a minute to sign but it may just be the one thing we need to keep children from getting hurt.
The reason for my elimination is that I have minor disability due to being blind in one eye. But, no record has been issued stating that I am disabled. However I am physically fit and able to perform the tasks demanded by the Armed Forces during and after basic training.
I am willing to provide the proper documentation from my physicians stating that I am able to execute the necessary duties. this matter infringes on the statutes set forth in anti-discrimination laws.
Discrimination is treatment or consideration based on class or category rather than individual merit; partiality or prejudice. As an American Citizen I am entitled to the same opportunities that all other citizens are entitled. My dream is to be a part of the United States Air Force so that I may take part in a legacy of excellence and contribute to my fellow man.
I hope to be considered for training as an Air Craft Mechanic, Medic, Weather Officer or anything that deals with computers and aircraft navigation systems. I know there are many jobs I am not qualified to do, but I want to perform any job that i can.
I am certainly qualified for any of the aforementioned positions.
I am asking for the opportunity to join the Air Force and make my family proud by protecting this nation. This has been my dream since I was a young child. I want to put my life on the line to protect this country, which has done so much for me.
Please help me fulfill my potential and serve the United States. With Your help, my dream of doing this could happen.
On September 11, 2001 two terrorist planes struck the World Trade Center along with one other terrorist plane that struck the pentagon. The World Trade Center collapsed, with people still inside.
In total, 2973 people were confirmed dead, and 24 remain missing as a result of the terrorist attack. Those people were ordinary people, citizens of the United States. Those people had family all around our country and even the world.
Because of the terrorist attack on 9/11, The United States remains in a war in Iraq, where al-Qaeda and the other terrorists came from. It has been almost five years, and the war goes on. An official count of 19,890 Americans have died in combat, but it has been estmated as 20,000 - 48,100.

We the people of the United States would like to remove the president from the White House.
George W. Bush has sent our country into deeper debt.
Please, for the sake of the United States of America, sign this petition.
To The United States Congress:
While quadrupling the number of people in correctional facilities over the past 30 years has played a major role in reducing crime, America's problematic prison system has done a poor job of ensuring that convicts who leaves the prison gates are ready to lead productive lives.
America releases about 550,000-600,000 each year, and does little to prepare them for work or school and-not surprisingly re-arrest most of them within three years after being released. Few released convicts find full-time work and many abandon spouses and children. People who have already spent time in prison or jail move back to some of America's poorest neighboorhoods to terrorize neighbors who can ill afford the cost of crime.
This must stop. I am asking The United States Congress to pass a law that would give employers tax incentives if they hire former convicts.
We need to send a strong message that former convicts deserves a second chance in life. If we as a civilized society cannot give them that chance, then i say we are partly responsible for them being re-arrested for not receiving a fair chance like the rest of us.
This petition is to help me, Christopher McCowan run for president of the united states in 2008 at age 18. I also have a differnt petition at www.petitionspot.com/petitions/letmccowanrun

P2P (peer-2-peer) users have been in a constant fight against the RIAA, MPAA, and even the FBI. Some people may say that P2P users should be punished for the breaking of copyright laws. Others say that data should be free for distribution. Millions of people in the past, the present, and hopefully the future will be using P2P.
The question comes down to do you think P2P users should be pursuited or not. US code Section 2319 of Title 18/Part I/Chapter 113 has given the government the ability to charge P2P users with a crime.
International Human Rights Standards are at the very foundation for civil society. It is crucial that the United States assume a leadership role in advancing and enforcing those standards. The United States can not maintain its status as the benchmark for international human rights by continuing to ignore those of women.

This is a petition to restore the freedom of prayer back into the schools of the United States of America.
Politicians should be require to work in office a minimum 40 hour work week like every other American. In addition to the responsibility to the United States, they should be required to do their duties, such as voting on issues, signing laws, and have the time they are spending in the Captial Accounted for.
I am tired of encountering mostly illegals anyway who REFUSE to learn the language of the United States, ENGLISH. I hereby recommend, as hard as it may be, to not only capture illegals, but to make sure each and every individual who is here either illegally or on a working visa, or whatever it may be is speaking ENGLISH.
Try visiting WEST NEW YORK, NJ, or Union City, NJ, Jersey City, NJ. You will not find a lot of English speaking people. Therefore, either get them to ESL classes, or get them the hell out of here.
The current state of the broadcasting industry is not immediately held liable for content and other intellectual property issues known to cause severe brain damage and mental illness. This petition would establish a plausible option for residential parties and consumers to generate inquire concerning content, thematic inference and other causes of particular conditions such as parkinson's disease, alzhimer's disease and even some forms of schizophrenia.
Regulatory issues would include:
1) Launching a full scale internet service operation for all national regions
2) Introduce the Medicaid/Medicare coverage plan which would allow a co-pay option for partial internet access (SSI-SSA);
3) Create a national broadcast community in which forums and other programming are recognized by the US Congress under meritious and technical basis. (FCC-ABC)
The action of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in declaring a right to homosexual marriage under its state constitution is an outrage. This act threatens marriage throughout the United States.
This petition was created on 9/24/03 to garner support to be sent to the President of the United States and the members of Congress to formly withdraw from the United Nations, ending all funding of said organization.
Help us to legalize same sex marriage in the United States.
To the United States of American Government: Don't fight against Iraq. You will kill innocent people and their relatives. You will kill their daughters and sons, and even brothers and sisters.

We the people petition the US Government for a REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES over the United States Senate, Congrees, and all other officials and spokesman for the US Governent for their efforts to lead the people of the United States into a Democracy by referring to the US as a Democracy when in fact the US is supposed to be a Constitutional Democracy.
This petition is to promote the repeal of the 17TH ARTICLE OF AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION. This amendment effectively turned our constitutional Republic into a legislative democracy and denies the states their right to appoint senators as written in the Constitution.
This is a petition to USA Congress do not engage in conventional war against Iraq. In case of the estimate of real nuclear threat use nuclear weapons.
The only purpose of this war whould be to protect communist forces in
Eastern Europe for liability of slave labour in their military forces.
If Iraq is considered a symbolic state under Russian orders to weaken the US economy and creating a real threat of nuclear attack against the US then the US should order nuclear attack against targets otherwise suspected of carring
or producing nuclear weapons under Moscow control. Do not use lives of US solders against technology.
Dont you just hate it when you are sitting next to a smoker? It just makes you want to barf! Sign this petition to stop that!
In the state of California and other places in the United States, the term "white" is almost entirely used on every standardized and state-issued test. This wouldn't be a problem if all ethnicities were refered to by color (examples: black instead of African-American, yellow instead of Asian-American, brown instead of Hispanic/Latino) however, every ethnicity is given the proper title except for European-Americans. This is a common occourance, especially on the Stanford 9 and other such tests.
Please, people of every ethnicity and State in the United States, sign this in the name of human rights, equality, and freedom.
