Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 does not prohibit social network casinos from accepting online payments for "virtual money", yet these sites continually take payments and tighten the games worse than actual casinos. They have horrible customer service, if any.
Nonsmokers are involuntarily exposed to secondhand smoke in public places. This environmental tobacco smoke is the directly related to many deaths every year. This includes 2,760 infant deaths, 3,400 lung cancer deaths and 46,000 heart failure deaths.
People get put in jail for murder but over 50,000 people are dying every year from secondhand smoking exposure and nothing is being done about it? There is a dire need for a nationwide smoking ban in public places. This will ensure that less people will lose their lives as a result of secondhand smoke exposure
The DREAM Act is a bipartisan proposal, which would create a pathway to citizenship for thousands of young students who were brought to the United States years ago as children.
If Congress fails to act this year, another class of outstanding, law-abiding high school students will graduate without being able to plan for the future, and some will be removed from their homes to countries they barely know.
This tragedy will cause America to lose a vital asset: an educated class of promising immigrants students who have demonstrated a commitment to hard work and a strong desire to contributing members of our society.
The Smoker has continually paid higher and higher taxes for the privilege of smoking, yet taxes continue to increase as smoking bans are put into effect around the Country!
Tobacco taxes continue to pay for local, state and federal programs which smokers and non-smokers alike enjoy.
It is our request that a law be enacted which states that:
“Any Local, State or Federal entity which enacts a law banning the use of tobacco products in any way (other than age limitations) shall not reap the benefits of tax money obtained from the sale or use of tobacco products and that any increase in taxes on the sale or use of tobacco products shall not be any more than the increase of taxes on any other consumer products sold to the public.”
We therefore request that this matter be brought before The Congress of the United States of America for their consideration.
The concept is a fairly simple one; everyone has a birthday - what better way to celebrate than to give that person the day off on that most special of days?
Instead of the average state holiday, where all workers receive a paid day off, the concept of SB is that only one person receives the holiday. This makes the holiday much easier to enact; businesses have no need of shutting down, the rest of the world and the economy can function as normal with no disruption.
For the employer, it also makes good fiscal sense. Instead of the massive one-time payout associated with other holidays, the monetary repercussions of the SB system are staggered throughout the calendar year.
For the government, the process could not be easier. No special legislation to deal with the addition of a stat is neccessary. No calendar changes are needed. The banks will remain open. All of the extra hassle associated with the average holiday are avoided.
Please sign the petition, and lets get a holiday for us all, on the most important day of the year for us all.

After developing and researching a civilian participation project on global warming and it's effect we realized the hazards and dangers that we are currently facing and more to come in the future.
We want your support for advocating our president Mr. Bush to enact the Kyoto Protocol and help the public be aware and educated of the current situation of global warming.
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, draw the attention of the house to the following:
THAT hundreds of thousands of work horses and foals have been slaughtered for food in order to be sold as gourmet meat in foreign markets; and
THAT in 1998 alone, approximately 23 152 American horses were transported to Canada and killed for human consumption; and
THAT horses are companion animals, they are not raised for food and are taxed differently than food animals; and
THAT slaughtered horses come from a variety of places, receiving a variety of veterinarian care and drugs throughout their lives, unlike animals that are raised for meat; and
THAT the horse has been an important figure in the history of Canada and our Royal Canadian Mounted Police force; and
THAT in 1999, approximately 62 351 horses were slaughtered in Canada; and
THAT the state of California has already passed Proposal 6, known as The Prohibition of Horse Slaughter and Sale of Horse meat for Human Consumption Act of 1998:
THEREFORE we the undersigned, your petitioners call upon Parliament to enact legislation against the slaughter of horses and sale of horse meat for human consumption.

Because the heartland health center has limited parking [the center has 171 beds and circa 25 parking spaces] 75% of the center's workers [not visitors] park on our residential street every day. This is not only an inconvenience but also a safety hazard, particularly since Herrick Street is a dead end street. The center is clearly in violation of many rules.
We have tried to find a solution to this problem with the city of Allen Park, but after 2 yrs of nothing but empty promises we, the Herrick and Wick residents wish to petition the city to enact a residential permit parking [RPP] that restricts non resident parking to 2 hrs.M-F 9-5pm.
In April, 2001, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors failed to enact proposed legislation that would have made it illegal to shoot across the property of another without first obtaining their permission.
This enhancement would have better defined the current reckless endangerment statute, which by law enforcement's own admission is a subjective and qualitative charge that is poorly defined and difficult to enforce. Thinking people, gun owners and non-gun owners alike, agree that defining reckless endangerment to include "bullet trespass" is simply common sense firearm safety that should not be left to chance. When a bullet is fired through private property without permission, it is a violation of our inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
