1. Stop NAIS

NAIS stands for National Animal Identification System.

NAIS is trying to be passed by the federal government. This will make anyone who has animals to register their property and their animal. At our expense. This is to make sure that there stopping animal diseases brakes out.

This also stops anyone from taking there pets off there property. If you go to the Vet your vet has to disclose if your animal is contagious or not. If so they are supposed to confiscate and destroy. You have to have promotion from the government to take you animal to the vet.

If you show your pet in FH or FFA you have to have promotion to do that as well. They want you to micro chip or brand your pets. They are going as far as micro chipping rodents and chickens. It has been proven that micro chipping causes cancer in animals. Some animals it would be very hard to micro chip let alone brand.

What this will do if it passes is most people will get rid of there pets do to expense. This will also stop 4h programs and FFA programs. A lot of these programs help keep kids off the street and out of trouble.

It will put grain growers, farmers and hay growers out of business. Vets and horses ferriers will be out of business. Our economy as we know it will be destroyed. The government is already trying to enforce NAIS in Kentucky, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

2. STOP Adult Soccer Games

Our local newly renovated Sunland City Park has been destroyed by adult soccer players, most of who live and work out of the area of Sunland-Tujunga, California.

Each Sunday the park is unusable by local families because adult soccer games are taking place and there is no room for a family to play on the grassy lawns. Additionally, the lawns which were newly planted in 2005 have been destroyed and show expansive bare patches.

After the first season of adult soccer play, local families protested the constant actions that eliminated family time at the park on Sundays. Other community members asked if part of the fees for the soccer teams would be used to repair and replant the lawns. Nothing was changed, nor settled and the lawns areas remained bare. As the second soccer season began, the lawns grew worse and the invastion of outsiders to our park continued.

Families were not able to use the park as previously promised by local officials. Local community members continue to be unhappy with the City of Los Angeles allowing - out of the area - soccer teams to trample and destory our newly redesigned family park and take away precious family time at the park.

3. Destruction orders for vicious dogs

My son who is 7yrs old was attacked by his uncle's American bulldog over at his uncle's house - at the time the owners partner was there thankfully to help my son and remove the dog outside, however she's adament the dog was totally unprovoked and attacked him for no reason.

As a result of this my son had to go down to theatre to be stitched up as the wounds we're so deep, he had 20 nylon stitches in the back of his head.

Because the attack took place where the dog resides the officer dealing with it wasn't sure anything could be done to the dog.

The owner still has the dog, which we feel is absolutely disgusting - where are his morals!

It should of been destroyed in an instant, we are lucky my son is here today as had it been his throat he may not of been.

We feel the dog should be destroyed before its given the chance to attack someone else please help us to hopefully have a new law brought forward so if a dog attacks a child regardless of where it happens its a dangerous dog and it should be destroyed.

4. Latitia's plea

July 28, 2006

My three year old daughter was attacked while being looked after at a neighbour's house. Their border collie tore my daughters face, she needed 60 stitches and three operations, that is to date, she will need more in the future.

The dog is still allowed to live in there family home and it is to her discretion whether or not to have the dog destroyed as the dangerous dogs act only applies to dogs who bite in public.

This woman lives two roads down and still allows her dog to roam the street and walk freely around her home where her twin girls (also 3) live.

This dangerous dog should not be allowed to walk freely among her own children who are not old enough to understand the danger or to roam the street in front of her house.

5. Bush Must Resign

September 3, 2005

George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Mr. President:

I, like millions of other Americans and people worldwide, have watched with horror over the past few days as the events in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast have unfolded. The images of suffering and neglect endured by some of our nation's most vulnerable have been seared into my memory and I will not soon forget them.

Mr. President, you have a long history of refusing to accept responsibility when the bungling of your administration and the failures of your policies have damaged our country, threatened our security and brought great harm to our people and to people throughout the world. From the debacle in Iraq to the ever rising number of people living in poverty in our country to the current abysmal failure to bring emergency assistance to New Orleans, you and your administration have repeatedly used any means possible to avoid being held accountable for your actions.

As a citizen who loves my country, I can no longer accept this. I am unwilling to tolerate the unnecessary suffering, death and destruction in New Orleans due to you and your administration's delayed and inept response.

There is no excuse for this appalling catastrophe. This time, you cannot attribute your own failure to someone else. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website states the following: "In the event of a terrorist attack, natural disaster or other large-scale emergency, the Department of Homeland Security will assume primary responsibility on March 1st for ensuring that emergency response professionals are prepared for any situation. This will entail providing a coordinated, comprehensive federal response to any large-scale crisis and mounting a swift and effective recovery effort."

You are ultimately responsible for DHS; therefore, you bear the primary responsibility for your administration's failure to mount a swift and effective recovery effort.

No one could have prevented the damage caused by the hurricane. However, the results of the storm and its aftermath, including the potential for the flood control system in New Orleans to fail, were well known and well reported. On the Sunday before the storm struck, the National Weather service issued this bulletin:

"URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW ORLEANS LA
1011 AM CDT SUN AUG 28 2005

...DEVASTATING DAMAGE EXPECTED... .HURRICANE KATRINA...A MOST POWERFUL HURRICANE WITH UNPRECEDENTED STRENGTH...RIVALING THE INTENSITY OF HURRICANE CAMILLE OF 1969.

ONCE TROPICAL STORM AND HURRICANE FORCE WINDS ONSET...DO NOT VENTURE OUTSIDE!"

In response to that warning, you chose to remain on vacation for another three days while the storm struck, the city flooded and the devastation mounted. Your Vice-President and Secretary of State also chose to vacation.

Mr. President, if I stayed on vacation while my employer faced one of its greatest threats ever, I would be fired.

Because of your incompetence and callousness, thousands of people lived though hellish conditions. Because of your policies, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had been gutted and political appointees with little to no prior experience in disaster management had been placed in charge of FEMA long before Katrina ever struck. Because FEMA could not respond appropriately and in a timely manner, thousands in New Orleans died. Many more lost loved ones.

Mr. President, since it appears that your vacations are very important to you, I invite you to remain on vacation permanently.

For gross incompetence, negligence, lack of compassion and demonstrable policy failure, I and those who have signed below demand that you resign immediately. We also demand the resignations of Vice-President, Dick Cheney; Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice; Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff; and Under Secretary for FEMA, Michael Brown.

Please know we will use whatever legal means necessary to rid our great country of the scourge you have brought to it. That begins by removing you from office.

Sincerely,

Chris Jimmerson

6. The Front Line Revolution - preserve and restore the culture of hip hop

This petition was designed to preserve and restore the culture of hip hop, which has been bastardized and virtually destroyed as we know it by money-hungry record companies and various music professionals. These individuals have marketed and promoted music to the masses of people who have been brainwashed to buy this low-quality music. A revolution has been created to bring hip hop back to the essence of its culture.

7. A Campaign to save the Rainforests

We are campaigning to save the remaining Rainforests of the world from being destroyed. With this petition and your signature, which will make a difference, we will show the governments of the world that they can no longer ignore the growing problems that are facing the Earth. Without the lungs of this planet global warming will be a very serious issue with which we shall have a point of no return in the coming future.

Some governments are not taking the necessary steps to ensure the welfare of this planet and its inhabitants and some may not realise the importance of the rainforests to the world at large.
So what is so important about the Rainforests? Trees themselves suck up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then release oxygen, whereas we in turn as humans do the opposite we breathe in the oxygen and release carbon dioxide, with an ever increasing population we need the trees to balance human activity.

The major contributors to global warming are fossil fuels releasing carbon dioxide, fossil fuels are omitted from cars, lorries, planes, and anything that uses combustion. It is reported by scientists in the last 450,000 years, carbon dioxide has not risen as much as it has since the Industrial revolution

The importance of the Rainforests are their positioning, placed within the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn they lie on the Equator which receives the most sun.

With the trees not being destroyed carbon dioxide is absorbed, oxygen is released and the sun's rays can bounce back into space because of lower levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But even in this ideal situation all countries have to reduce their CO2 emissions.

With the Rainforests destroyed, oxygen is not released and carbon dioxide is not absorbed leading to higher levels of this gas in the atmosphere. The sun's rays then hit the Earth and cannot bounce back into space due to these high levels, thereby heating the Earth which also has an effect on the inside of the Earth.

Due to this destruction and global warming, the weather patterns are changing and becoming more irregular and more severe.

Please sign our petition. We don't want our children and their children's life to be determined by people with closed minds. We have to think ahead to the next seven generations.

As our forefathers fought for our freedom it is our turn to secure the future for the coming generations.
