There has always been love for animals. When I learned about what little consequences there were for animal abuse and neglect, I decided that it was best to take action. Most animal neglect cases are only misdemeanors and people rarely see an institution or pay a high price for their crimes.
Animal abuse, abandonment, and lack of help are too common in our world, and this will help assist those who cannot help themselves. Most people who have pets know that they are wonderful companions, and that they will continue to be as long as they are cared for. Additionally, many people do not think about how unfortunate it is when an animal does not have a home. Immanuel Kant once said, "He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men... We can judge the heart of a man by his dealings with animals." Anyone who would harm or neglect an animal most likely would harm or neglect a human too. A way to help prevent this would be stricter laws against anyone who abuses or neglects an animal. Help to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
We, the students, staff and faculty of Florida Gulf Coast University, care about our health and the health of those around us. Therefore, we support efforts to make Florida Gulf Coast University a tobacco-free campus.
We are aware of the dangers tobacco use poses on those who use it and those who are involuntarily exposed to it. These problems are completely avoidable. Secondhand smoke is a known killer and a hazard that we prefer to avoid while entering or leaving our campus buildings.
We view this educational institution as a place where knowledge is shared, discussed and integrated into our daily lives, a place that accepts scientific proof and adapts with it, as needed. Yet, our current campus tobacco policy seems at odds with nearly all of the current scientific knowledge about tobacco use.
3. Keep the B37
The MTA is looking to once again increase fares on the backs of this city on our local buses, express buses, and subways by more than 25% next year in addition to cutting back or in some cases ending service on it's routes.
Most affected by this would be the commuters who use the B37 bus which runs from Downtown Brooklyn to the most southern tip of Brooklyn.
The B37 which stretches nearly the entire Third Avenue connecting several neighborhoods especially for those who live in Bay Ridge Brooklyn depend on this bus especially seniors who use this bus as a way of life, commuters who look to avoid the Fifth Avenue B63 handicapped who cannot take the Fourth Avenue R Subway line, and for connections to other buses along Third Avenue which travel all across Brooklyn.
By cutting this bus it will severely impact nearby buses such as the B63 which is already maxed to capacity, the B70 which is one of the slowest buses in the city possibly the free world, and the B16 especially during the school season.
Bottom line this decision will make everyone life's a little bit harder, and their commutes a little bit longer...
This petition is for those who do not want to pay for Xbox Live anymore , to those who a sick of paying $60 a year to get xbox live.
If Nintendo's Wii and Sony's ps3 can give free access why can't Microsoft's Xbox 360 do the same thing?
They dumped tons of money into an online framework that would allow for online gaming on another level, and have succeeded in offering a service that none of their competitors can even come close to matching.
It's time that WE xbox 360 users take a stand , we will be heard and we will win. So please brothers and sisters join me and other xbox 360 users in this petition Xbox live should be free!!
Classical Chinese should be maintained.
Simplified Chinese is NOT part of the Chinese culture or heritage.

This is for all those who have to suffer the unholy cooking smells that some Asians omit.
There needs to be a change in legislation so that the local councils can enforce some sort of order against this and put an end of the suffering/misery of those who cannot abide the really revolting pungent smells.
Because of this fact, there are many people out there, under the new legislation, if they are in dispute with their neighbours, will lose a considerable amount of value to their property. Also would find it very, very difficult to sell or rent.
Something needs to be done sooner rather than later.

The very people who have enabled this country to be what it is today are being treated with contempt financially!
The amount they are expected to live on is a disgrace! Those who try to supplement their pension by WORKING are penalised!
Politicions received generous salary rises and pensions, while our senior citizens struggle to maintain a reasonable life style!

Start Another War (WOW!) War On Want... Help Make It History!
This petition calls out to all those who retain a human conscience. Those who know injustice reigns to large portions of the globe (Africa for instance). Those who are sickened by huge deprivations, starvation, treatable illness and much more sweeping whole continents.
Yes, we are told or sold our world is now far richer, more humane, intelligent, accountable, responsible and with bottom line morals! Yet billions upon billions is simply wasted on fruitless exercises, while millions upon millions starve and suffer needlessly and daily. WHY?
All we ask is for those who still care for our fellow humans to read: http://www.lulu.com/Nextagemission and www.nextagemission.com then help make WANT history.. make it happen together!
Once we have enough signatories collated, then will submit them to accountable authority and call for 'Deed In Action.'
"Success is not preaching to the converted, but converting the preacher." Robert W Burnett
This petition is in accordance with "The D.R.E.A.M. " Act. This act is a bill that needs to be reintroduced before the Senate and the House to help those who where brought to this country of no fault of their own and have live the vast majority of their lives in the U.S.
This bill being passed will allow these people the right to an education and the right to work. By signing this petition you will be helping alot of people become productive law abiding citizens and possibly deter them from illegal means of supporting themselves.
The Hannahville members names that appear on this petition, and the bus tour customers would like to request that the daily bus perks be returned. "Perks everytime a customer rides the Casino buses" we feel the latest action is unfair to those who are following the guidelines and rules, also unfair to the bus drivers and coordinators, who most often ride these buses at 20 times or less daily.
We do understand that some measures must be taken but, not at the expenses of those who do follow the casino rules when riding the buses. As a tribal member, we feel that cutting back on the perks not only hurts those who ride daily for their own personal gaming, but it hurts the business of our tribal gaming all together. As it is now, the customer numbers have reduced in great quanities since the Beach club has made this decision. Which at some point must hurt the business of our tribal enterprises.
We are asking by our signatures that other efforts be made to control those who abuse your guidelines, one that does not infringe on our choice to ride daily and recieve the Casino perks during each ride.
On Neopets, there has been a constant argument among the Role Playing board about annoying newbies as well as some arrogant advanced. My idea is that new sub-forums should be added! An "Newbie's Role Playing" board for those who are new and wish to practice with others at their level, an "Advanced Role Playing" for those who are very experienced, and an "Easy Going RP" for just relaxing and having fun. This will most likely bring peace to the Role Players of Neopets.
This petiton is for all those who believe that One Nation Under God should not be removed from the Pledge Of Allegence. This is our right as Christians and Americans. People have the freedom not to believe in God if they choose, but those of us who choose to believe in God this is our right also.
We always hear let's remove anything pertaining to religion from schools government buildings and etc... But we should also have the right to pray if we choose or to say One Nation Under God. For those who do not want this then don't say or do it. But those who wish to let us have our rights also and let us be heard.
Make it easier to paint your pet!
There its almost impossable to get 100k in neopets to buy a nice paintbrush. I am not saying make it easier to make money in neopets but maybe to introduce some cheaper yet cool looking PTB's, for those who find it very difficult to make np and would like our neopets to suit our personality.
This is a petition to keep the nickname "Rebels" a part of St. Johns school.
There has been much debate throughout the SJS community regarding our current mascot and team nickname, the Rebels. Many arguments have been made by those who oppose as well as those who support the name, but no decision has ever been made to drop the term "Rebels" altogether.
The International Olympic Committee, in their infinite wisdom, have decided that those who cannot compete at an "Olympic" standard are no longer welcome to participate in future Olympic Games.
This decision goes against the basic Olympic Creed, which Baron de Coubertin installed in 1896. It states the following:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Those who support this elitist decision are thumbing their nose at the very ideals that Baron de Coubertin envisioned when he brought back the Olympic Games.
About a week ago, skateboarding was pretty much banned from middletown, although i dont skateboard, there are many people who do. I think that skatebording and bikeriding are about the only things to do on weekends or school holidays, or even just after school with in walking distance of homes. I propose that middletown do something to encourage teens to get out and hang out with friends and family rather than be public disturbances or drug addicts.
The following people of middletown valley agree with me and would like to see something done to entertain the youth of our community.
The world is a dark place. So many suffer alone. They have no one to reach them so they cry on silently. Sometimes, they just need someone to reach out. To open the doors and let them in- a shoulder to cry on, or empathy. Don't turn your back on those that are hurting. Rather listen with your heart to hear those who are crying out silently. Be a hero in someone else's life. Listen.
I would like to make everyone aware of a disease/disorder that most people do not even know about unless they are around some one who has it or there are an educated medical professional. Many people are misdiagnosed and are going through terrible times because they might not even know what they have. It is reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and affects the sympathetic nervous system. It can make people unable to do anything and live every second of every day in terrible pain. The disease can be traced back to the civil war. I myself have had it since was age 11 and that was just when i was finally diagnosed over at Stanford University. Here in my area they wanted to cut my nerves leading to my leg. I ask everyone to do some research and spread the knowlege and get programs and support groups going.
Unfair Schedule Change of Inuyasha!
Those who are restricted during the weekdays think it is unfair that the time should change to four days a week. Inuyasha should stay on Adult Swim every Saturday at 11:00!
WHY do we allow our judicial system to continually fail to protect our
WHY do we not have adequate laws in place to remove the thousands of
KNOWN pedophiles from our communities, and thus offer at least SOME
protection to our children?
WHY do those that hold poltical power continually refuse to
implement Sarah's Law?
WHY are the 'civil rights' and 'freedom' of those that prey upon our
children deemed more important than the children's themselves?
WHY are those who by their own actions put themselves outside the
rules that govern a supposed civilised society deemed worthy of ANY
rights civil or otherwise? Their very actions constitute a
relequishment of such rights.
WHY is the punishment for those guilty of these horrific acts not
commensurate with crime?
WHY, when we know that there will be other children, do we allow the liberal 'apologists' to determine the agenda re: the
reintroduction of the death penalty for such acts? Their generalised
arguments significantly fails to acknowledge the advancement in
forensic science, and hence conclusive proof of guilt.
WHY do we not have a national, specialised police section, trained to
deal specifically with child abduction and paedophile activity?
WHY do we KNOW that the lives of yet MORE innocent children will be
taken and families destroyed, while the powers that be continue to
shirk their CIVIL and HUMAN responsibilites, giving us all the
right 'soundbites' but ultimately doing NOTHING
