1. Stop Twitter Abuse!

This petition is directed to the executive level of Twitter, Inc. It's purpose is to ask for improvements to policies which combat, and address acts of hatred and harassment in Twitter.

Twitter is asked to develop a program for the immediate, or eventual blockage of ISP's among repeated offenders who repeatedly use their pages to abuse others. Many people, celebrities or not, are victim to this type of behavior. The specific activity which prompted this petition however, was observance of twitter abuse directed at Megan Ohry, and Colin O'Donoghue.

It began with a “hater” who under two different user names, “spammed” Colin with material that was not only harrassment, but was offensive. Much of the content was inappropriate for younger twitter users, and this was hurtful I’m sure to not only Colin, but to his fans as well. I’m happy to say that after the two pages this user spammed from have finally been taken down, however at the time this petition is being created, the hater already has a new page.

What I am not happy about, is that the hater was allowed to have his/her fun to the expense of everyone else for a good long while before twitter acted on it. Twitter is in my opinion, too slow, and too lenient on abuse. Regardless of what ship you may represent, one thing stands true, and that is that this impacts all of us. It’s not just Once Upon A Time actors and actresses (and their fans) who have been abused this way. Yes, freedom of speech is important, but even that has it’s limits.

Debate and disagreements are one thing. That’s discussion, not abuse. Abuse begins when a twitter user utilizes his/her account for a purpose to do harm by verbal abuse with threats, ridicule, harassment, insults, and offensive material.

3. stop hate towards islam

Islam, in the 21st century has been judged by a minority of people in their faith. 9/11 and several other terrorist occurrences have happened by extremists that take their holy book out of context. The mass number of organisations that supports Islamophobia is concerning and I want it to stop.

As many of you already know the majority of Muslims are very peaceful, so I ask that in order to stop the hatred of Muslims sign this petition, because at this rate humanity will truly create a new holocaust, not of the Jewish community but of the Muslim community.

4. Stop the war on goths and emos

The Russian government wants to ban gothic and emo music. They also want to ban any youngster from entering a government or school building whilst wearing gothic or emo-style clothing. I do not think that this is acceptable.

Here's why:

Goths are NOT always evil. I am a goth and I am always putting money in charity boxes, signing petitions for causes that I care about and going on "click-to-donate" websites. I absolutely love animals and am a vegetarian. This is not uncommon amongst the gothic subculture.

Most goths are not involved in animal sacrifices and, because we feel secluded and are often persecuted, many goths are very sympathetic towards others who are also persecuted, misunderstood and/or just mistreated, i.e the animals that are kept on factory farms or the wolves that are being hunted due to their bad reputations. In fact, we are generally so open towards others who are treated cruelly that many homosexuals and bisexuals turn to the gothic subculture and are accepted there.

Discuss this matter with any normal goth or even just anyone who has ever had real experience conserving with normal goths and they will tell you that goths are generally very friendly, caring people.

Goths also do not have to be depressed. Many of us are, but that does not mean that we all are. Also, how would our being depressed serve as a good reason to discriminate against us? We don't discriminate against non-gothic people who are depressed. We sympathise with them, so why shouldn't we do the same with goths?

Goths are not always drug addicts, alcoholics or gangsters. In fact, I was reading a post from another goth on the Internet. This one was saying about how his/her mother had always been against his/her gothic style, saying things like "why can't you be normal like my friends' children?" Yet those "normal" youngsters all ended up getting into drugs and, possibly, gangs as well. The goth, on the other hand, stayed away from all of it.

Even emos, the ones whom we goths are sometimes forsworn enemies with, can be nice as well. Each to their own!

5. Requesting a Pardon from President Barack Obama for Marissa Alexander

Marissa Alexander, a 31-year-old mother of a toddler and 11-year-old twins. She had claimed self-defense, tried to invoke Florida's "stand your ground" law and rejected plea deals that could have gotten her a much shorter sentence. A jury found her guilty as charged: aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Because she fired a gun while committing a felony, Florida's mandatory-minimum gun law dictated the 20-year sentence.

The state's "10-20-life" law was implemented in 1999 and credited with helping to lower the violent crime rate. Anyone who shows a gun in the commission of certain felonies gets an automatic 10 years in prison. Fire the gun, and it's an automatic 20 years. Shoot and wound someone, and it's 25 years to life.

Alexander's case unfair. "Stand your ground" law did not apply for her, and she felt her life was on the line.

6. Stop hate crime in Wales

Last year in Manchester a girl got kicked to death by a group of boys just because she different. I live in Cardiff, Wales and I see this happening everywhere and in school.

Schools are not doing anything about it and outside of school they get treated even worse.

7. A Call for the Resignation of Richard Littlejohn

In December, 2012, Daily Mail columnist Richard Littlejohn wrote an article attacking the personal choice of Mr Upton, a primary school teacher from Accrington, to undergo a gender change and become a female - Miss Meadows.

Littlejohn's article made no effort to hide its hateful and mocking tone, and was deleted from the Daily Mail website upon the announcement of Miss Meadow's sudden death.

In March of this year, Miss Meadows was found dead at her home - likely from suicide. Nobody is under the illusion that the press coverage of her gender change was of no effect on this, and neither could anybody be in doubt that Littlejohn's article was a primary catalyst.

Littlejohn has repeatedly used his twice-weekly column in the Daily Mail to attack, with relentless and unashamed hatred, minorities, homosexuals, disabled people and others who have done little to provoke him. This is not journalism, it is hate speech. There is no other term for it.

This petition does not seek to remove Littlejohn's freedom of speech; it seeks to remove him from the position of influence which he continually abuses. The livelihood of many innocent individuals depend upon his resignation.

8. We All Are ONE!

When you look at all of the problems facing the world today--environmental exploitation, animal cruelty, hunger, poverty, greed, war, and many more--the fundamental problem can be seen as a fragmented mindset, one which perceives everything else as something separate from the self.

In the words of noted quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami:

"The ultimate disease--the root disease--is the illusory thinking that we are separate from the Whole. To heal the disease is to realize that we are Whole, that the separation is but an illusion."

Thus, the goal of this petition is to heal the fragmented mentality through promoting an ethical system based on the most fundamental, universal, unifying belief in the world: that everything emanates from One, Supremely Good and Beautiful Source, and, therefore, everything is essentially One.

This simple, universal belief has resounding ethical implications (e.g. we should treat all things with love, compassion, and respect), healing the world on a fundamental level.

This belief is so universal and so powerful, it is high time it receives its due honor and support.

So, please, take a stand with us and declare: We all are One!

9. RKA Highschool Dances

Recently we've had more events during the school year. These events help boost the happiness of students that attend RKA.

A lack of events can really hurt the health of the school. I was told to fight for what I think is right. This is definitely right.

10. Impeach Obama

1. Obama and unrepentant terrorist William Ayers misappropriated over 300 million dollars in donations meant for the education of Chicago’s minority students. They routed the money to Obama’s community activist buddies who then tried to turn the students in radicals. The program was a total failure.

2. Obama, as an Illinois State Senator, redirected tens of millions in Illinois tax dollars to Valerie Jarrett and Tony Rezko, to provide housing for low income families. They returned the favor with political donations. The housing units were built with cheap materials and labor and are uninhabitable after a mere 10 years of use.

3. Obama accepted millions in illegal campaign contributions from foreign credit cards after the credit card filters used to screen out foreign money, was switched off. This also allowed domestic donors, who were over the legal limit, to contribute more.

4. Obama and SecState Clinton’s efforts to bring the US under the UN’s Small Arms Treaty are direct violations of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.

5. Obama attempted to move control of the Census Bureau from the Commerce Department to the White House, to be managed by then Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel.

6. Obama had provided under the radar amnesty to illegal immigrants by allowing ICE Director John Morton to prohibit ICE officers from enforcing US immigration laws.

7. Obama allowed USAG Holder to ignore the violation of US immigration laws in the sanctuary cities, i.e.,San Francisco, etc.

8. Obama has failed to defend US soil in Arizona as Mexican troops bring illegals and drugs into the USA, crossing the border doing so. This is a direct violation of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution.

9. Obama illegally fired the IG Walpin for investigating Obama’s buddy, Mayor Kevin Johnson (Sacramento), for fraud (850K) with AmeriCorps.

10. Obama is in contempt of Federal court for his illegal oil drilling moratorium in the Gulf.

11. Obama spent a month as the UN Security Council Chair in 2009, which raises the question of his conflict of interest between the US and the UN. This is also likely a violation of his Oath of Office as the UN conflicts with our Constitution on many levels, i.e., LOST, UN Small Arms ban, etc.

12. Obama signed an EO in December 2009 that allows Interpol to operate in the US without oversight by Congress, courts, FBI, or local law enforcement.

13. Obama and SecState Clinton misappropriated, er, used $23 million in US taxpayer funds to help Obama’s homeland of Kenya move to a communist nation where the freedom of speech, private property rights, and other rights are subservient to “social justice”. This includes the fact that the Kenyan constitution adopted Sharia Law, which violates the basic human rights of women.

14. Obama was likely involved with then Governor Rod Blagojevich to try and sell his Illinois Senate seat, i.e., pay to play. Jesse Jackson Jr is under investigation for it and it appears that Valerie Jarrett might also have been involved.

15. Obama ran a website that asked Americans to report on other Americans, in the area of ObamaKare, using whitehouse.gov and taxpayer money to do so. He repeated this with AttackWatch.

16. Obama got onto the Indiana ballot through voter fraud in 2008.

17. Obama sealed all of his records that would show that he is possibly an illegal president, that he is feloniously using a false SSN, that his draft registration number is false, that his Fulbright award was falsely awarded as Obama claimed foreign student status, and that his student aid was falsely obtained.

19. Obama violated bankruptcy laws by forcing GM bondholders to accept millions of dollars in losses of money that they were legally entitled to.

20. Obama violated bankruptcy laws by awarding the UAW with a share of GM and Chrysler during their bankruptcy proceedings.

21. Obama bought votes for ObamaKare with acts like, “Cornhusker Kickback”, “Louisiana Purchase” and the DoI increasing water allocations toCalifornia’sCentral Valley. This brought in the votes of Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa, both Democrat holdouts.

22. Obama lied about Americans being able to keep their healthcare coverage if they wanted to. ObamaKare is already forcing them out of their current coverage.

23. Obama attempted to bribe Joe Sestak with a job offer in order to get him to drop out of the Senate race against Arlen Specter.

24. Obama bypassed Congress and told the EPA to set carbon emission standards.

25. Obama forced BP to pony up a $20 billion slush fund to compensate Gulf Coast businesses and residents affected by the BP oil spill. It was administered by one of Obama’s political appointees and there is NO Congressional oversight.

26. Obama did nothing to Holder (abetted a felony) when Holder refused to prosecute two New Black Panther Party members for brandishing weapons in front of a voting location in Filthadelphia. A direct violation of the voters Civil Rights.

27. Obama bypassed the Senate with a recess appointment of Donald Berwick as the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Violates policy.

30. Obama violated contractual law when his regime cancelled 77 oil field development contracts previously approved by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, under Bush 43’s administration. This keeps us from extracting from 2-3 TRILLION barrels of oil.

32. Obama instigated a revolution in Egypt against an ally in the War on Terror.

33. Obama violated the War Powers Act of 1973 by conducting a war against Libya without Congressional authorization.

34. Obama lied to the American people when he said that there were no US troops on the ground in Libya and then later said they were only “logistical troops.”

46. Obama deprived the due process of two U.S.citizens, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, by assassinating them via a CIA drone attack in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011. This also raises the question of an act of war against Yemen for firing into a sovereign nation. Obama said in 2008: “No. I reject the Bush Administration’s claim that the President has plenary authority under the U.S. Constitution to detainU.S.citizens without charges as unlawful enemy combatants.”

47. Obama allowed Education Secretary Arne Duncan to grant waivers to No Child Left Behind however, this is a law enacted by Congress and neither Obama nor Duncan have the authority to authorize that.

11. Help stop Animal Slaughter houses

Animals are fully conscious when they are slaughtered; the majority of the time they are not given pain killers to help.

The animals that are kept in cages, sometimes not even as big as their body, are living in fear, pain and suffer.

If we speak out, we can make a difference, we can help.

15. STOP HATE against MICHAEL JACKSON

The purpose of this petition is to mainly stop hate on Michael Jackson. It will be sent to popular sites such as Facebook and Youtube.

Michael Jackson is an innocent man who only wanted to bring the world love and happiness. Because of his popularity, the media often spread rumors---that of course, are far from reality. There Youtube videos that contain lies and disgusting rumors about MJ. There are even channels who spread hate and animosity about him withour any particular reason--other than the fact that they think he is weird or a pedophile (which is another one of those lies).

We also need to remove hate groups on FB. Michael Jackson did his best to try and heal the world, and this is the least we can do. Sign the petition, stop hate on MJ and make a difference. L.O.V.E.

The Internet and social networking Web sites are being abused and used to form hate groups.

20. Stop the Hate

I am sure we have all heard of the horrific protests staged by the Topeka-based Westboro Baptist Church. They are the ones who have children holding signs at the funerals of war heroes that say such hateful things as "God Hates Fags".

At the trial of one of Matthew Sheppard's attackers a group of Matthews friends who call themselves "Angel Action" decided to do something about the hateful group. They dressed as Angels with huge wings and blocked the church protesters from view. They stood silently through the whole thing until the Westboro church members actually gave up and left.

They showed that these mean spirited biggots are no better than any other bully. I think we need to take a stand and show them that the same laws which protect their hate mongering also protect the rest of us.

21. Passions should stay on NBC

AS we all know Passions is the wildest soap opera since Dark Shadows and for 8 fun field years I and along with all of the other viewers have watch i on nbc.

It is great it has all you need one hour witchcraft, ghouls, zombies, it even has normal stuff such as love, deception, hate, and manipulation like a regular soap opera such as Days of our Lives, but different. Now they want to move it to Direct Tv which isnt fair to the viewer who have stuck with passions for the 8 fun field years that will no longer be able to watch it.

24. Extinguish Racist Sign in GA

This petition is being started to persuade District Attorney, Drew Lane, AND/OR the NAACP AND/OR other public officials, to take action against a racial sign located outside a resturaunt in Paulding County, GA.

The sign is a public display of hate, and an infringement upon the rights of all Americans to live free of predjudice and malice. It is also a direct Slander of Mr. Michael Jackson.

The owner of the resturaunt has the right to have his beliefs, but not to force those beliefs upon others, causing injury.

The sign is racist, hateful, and disrespectful, not only to the African American community, but to all of us who cherish equity and unity in our one human race. In addition to that, the sign is also a direct slander of Mr. Michael Jackson. No American should have to feel offended, or threatened as they travel through, or within, your county.
