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.
As a Christian constitutional father, engineer, author, and theoretical physicist, back bitten by our government, economy and society during a lifetime of 'family' court abuse, the author of Seventy Times American discovers the problems within these systems, and the corruptions that they have caused.
And he now has the solutions to solve these and many other problems on a national scale to save the next generation from there known consequences.
33. Free Richard!
Richard Johnson, a graduate of Emory and Henry College in VA, USA, was arrested on a trumped up male rape charge for performing oral sex on another man. The ADA prosecuting this case seemed very homophobic, even so much to say that this was "every man's nightmare."
On December 14th, 2011 he was found guilty of this farce and sent to North Central Regional Jail. The jury that convicted him were very conservative, older ladies and men and grew up in a time when punishing someone simply for being a homosexual was not only accepted, but encouraged. He is currently facing 11 to 30 years in prison for the ignorance and homophobia of a community.
Mariska Hargitay, 48, is primarily known for her role as Detective Olivia Benson on NBC's long running Law & Order spinoff, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, as well as a passionate advocate working for victims of sexual abuse.
But as has been said by countless acquaintances, coworkers and other comedic television personalities as someone who in real life, is more suited to the hilarious exploits of SNL. And if you have ever seen an interview, written or filmed, you'll know this is fact.
And in fact, It would be a complete injustice to deprive the world of her talent for any longer.
Fans and friends of Mariska call on YOU, to stop this vicious cycle of Mariska-less TV.
Rapper and fellow SVU co-star, Ice-T, known on Twitter as @FINALLEVEL has called on us for this purpose. Let's show them who the most diehard fans are.
Get Mariska on SNL 2012 Petition is in motion! Friends, family, your dog who has facebook, call them all to this worthy cause. Thank you!

This is Nicole Smith, fiancee of Martin Linenko Jr, aka Yae Neech. Martin has never been a threat to the Fairbanks community, where he was born and raised and has strived to only become a better man and father to his family.
Since a young child he's been well known to the members of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, participated in sports (mostly football), and spent summers doing construction jobs.
Several years back he decided to try his hand in the music business by starting a legit music label...recording music, making & selling instrumentals, collaborating with industry artists on tracks, as well as coordinating live performances here in the Fairbanks area.
The Law assumes that Martin is a threat (an expression of intention to inflict evil, injury or damage) to our community. If you know him at all, you would know that this is NOT in his character. His family and I have created a PETITION appealing to authority with RESPECT to his cause. In support of "Yae Neech" we are asking that you PLEASE take a moment of your time to SIGN THIS PETITION for him.
We GREATLY APPRECIATE all support given. WE LOVE & MISS HIM DEARLY! SO LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO BRING HIM HOME.
In NSW, anyone can challenge your will. The Succession Act was introduced in 2006 and is now being reviewed by the NSW Department of Attorney General and Justice.
Wills mean nothing under this law. Family, ex-spouses and friends can challenge your Will which means your loved ones miss out and costs your estate thousands of dollars in legal fess trying to defend your wishes.
Don't take my word alone for what ACTA is really threatening. Go look it up. Search it on google. Look at the injustice. We must fight for our right to have privacy on our personal computers. We should fight for our right to not be monitored every time we switch on our computers.
Just because a few people with deep pockets are angry with the internet, doesn't mean that the government has the right to take away our constitutional rights.
Like I said don't take my word for it, go see what the news and your searches and everything else tells you.
The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act of 1901 is a foundation document enacted by the British Parliament.
Only 8 referendums have been successful in over the 110 years the Constitution has operated. The Constitution today had been marginalized by legislative superiority.
[R v Kirby; Ex parte Boilermakers Society of Australia (1955-56) 94 CLR 254; (1956-57) 95 CLR 529; (1957) AC 288]
The Constitution contains may archaic and incompatible sections to Common and Natural laws.
NO MORE SIGNATURES FOR THE MOMENT, PLEASE. WE'RE PRINTING THEM OFF FOR SUBMISSION TO THE COUNTY. STAY TUNED AND THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST!
In November 2011, the Environmental Division of St. John County, FL, proposed modifications to the Land Development Code. The proposed changes can be viewed at:
While many of the changes dealing with planting standards for trees represent an improvement over the current code, the requirements for tree density (expressed as tree-inches) are inadequate. Specifically Section 4.01.05.F of Article IV dealing with tree-inch requirements for permits for new residential construction or new residential buildings on lots reduces the required number to half. We believe this number is inappropriate and does not take into consideration the varying amounts of permeable land among zones of different densities (R2, R2, R3). We believe the new standard should be research-based and provide for optimum benefit from landscaping utilizing trees.
This petition requests that the 2011 proposed amendments to the Land Development Code (LDC) be modified to reflect research-based findings regarding tree usage in residential lots and developments. We believe the proposed standard of 40 tree-inches per acre is inappropriate and not flexible enough to provide adequate tree cover for a full spectrum of residential properties of varying densities. In cases where the standard is not met, penalties or mitigations should be invoked. We also believe that the LDC should promote the use of wind-resistant and native species.
Thanks for signing the other petition, to continue protections for the Red Cedar in the Land Development Code We've been told by the County that the protections will be reinstated. If you still want to sign as a symbolic gesture, you are free to do so.
Thousands of people have been bullied or are being bullied in our country. Some of them consider a deadly choice to finish their situation because they are afraid to tell someone or if they tell someone their is the possibility that some people see it as normal.
Those people see it as normal because they also have been bullied in the past but did not make the choice that people today are making; so lets make a law that will prevent all consequences of bullying and stop bullying.
The law will abolish bullying in The United States, teach the effects of bullying, and make The United States a place where people have the opportunity to be themselves without fear of what people think of them or what would they do to them.
I'm going to make this short, sweet, and too the point. As you may or may not know, Obama quietly signed a bill to allow horse slaughter in America again.
Not only do I not believe in the brutal, inhumane ways of horse slaughter, I do not believe in the consumption of their meat. The horse slaughter plants will be opening again in about a month, or less. For those of you who don't know how a horse is slaughtered - it's not pretty, no mercy is shown to the horses.
Look it up on youtube.com to see for yourself. Simply signing this will not harm you in any way so even if horses are not your favorite animal - why not sign it? Also, don't think "what about cow slaughter?" I'm not saying that's okay, but this is here, for the horses. So, please sign this to save the horses where - yes, there are better endings for them rather than a brutal slaughter.
"The intent of this petition is to have liquor sales laws in British Columbia amended SUCH THAT:
1. Liquor sales regulations facilitate the rights of both citizens and businesses to exercise their freedom, rather than inhibit it.
2. An atmosphere of peace, prosperity, and cooperation is created and upheld to the highest standard.
3. Hours of legal sale should be expanded in order to allow citizens the greatest possible opportunity to enjoy their right to choose.
4. The issuance of liquor sales licenses should be expanded to include ANY legitimate retailer in the food category including grocers, convenience stores, and non-permanent vendors.
5. Public consumption of alcohol should be decriminalised, with an accompanying "stiffening" of punishments for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. This puts the onus of maintaining proper conduct onto the citizen rather than on Peace Officers, contributing to a sense of pride, personal responsibility, and cooperation.
In Florida, renters have too many rights. Rights that extend above the landlord. The eviction process should only take 1-2 weeks if the renter does not pay. They should not be allowed to stay in a property for free until the courts decide whether or not to evict them.
Presently, to delay matters, renters only need to respond without paying any money to stay longer in a home. Where is the justice in this? A simple response to the court can delay getting them out for another few weeks. Meanwhile, they can do as much damage to your property as they like and not be responsible. Again, where is the justice in this? Florida courts need to be more proactive in the eviction process.
Fort Myers courts, in general need to listen to landlords when they show up to court on time and the renter does not. In other states when a renter does not show up for court they are evicted and not given a second chance. Why is it in Flroida they are given a second chance?
We the people of Ireland have stood by long enough as the EU dictates how we live our life, We the people demand you change our constitution so we can vote on every issue the EU tries to legislate in Ireland as we are noticing our sovereignty slipping away from us, Well we want it back.
The banking bailout and the recession that followed including the IMF bailout to the people should have been voted on by the people.
The Occupy Wall Street protests started a movement which spread across the country including Boston, Massachusetts. These protestors have camped out at Dewey Square for more than 45 days, harassed onlookers, closed streets, trashed public and private grounds, and have embarrassed Boston.
Other Occupy protests have been broken up by police and I think its about time BPD ends it once and for all! Other Occupy protests have had death, assault, prostitution, drugs, rape, and concealed firearms tied to it. By signing this petition you are urging the officials of the most liberal state in America to end this and care for the ones who are affected by these protests. Please Sign this petition!
Today palm oil is used in lots of shopping products, some of which includes pears soap, pringles, most peanut butters, clover, ginsters, haribo, Good fellas pizza, warburtons and much more. Unfortunately I wouldn't be mentioning this if it didn't have such an affect on the environment.
The palm oil industry is responsible for destroying thousands of acres of deforestation in other countries. Currently 300 football fields are destroyed in south east Asia every hour for palm oil. And it's not just the vegetation that is being affected! The animals that rely on the forest (such as orangutans) are affected, many orangutans have no place to go when the forest is destroyed. 20 years ago their were more than 300,000 Bornean orangutans in the wild, now their are less than 45,000 in the wild. Orangutans only give birth once in 6 - 10 years therefore it is hard for them to breed as much as they are dying out due to deforestation.
Please go to http://www.wspa.org.uk/wspaswork/orangutans/ for more information on orangutans.
But worst of all the industry does not even label palm oil! Most palm oil is labeled as vegetable oil, therefore many people are unaware that it is in their food. This is taking away our freedom to know what exactly goes into our food, it takes away are choice of whether or not to eat palm oil! This is wrong, they should label palm oil and deliberately point out if it is palm oil free!
It is the civic duty of every citizen to hold their government accountable when it betrays the public trust and when it demonstrably fails to exercise its prescribed powers. When those elected behave as though they are above the law and abandon their Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution, it remains for the people to demand justice for the wrongs committed against them.
The Indian Trail Town Council, and staff, have continued to engage in unethical, unlawful, immoral, and illegal actions. The following list of offenses provides sufficient probable cause to investigate the culture of corruption that pervades local government, which endangers the people's unalienable rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The intent of this petition is to begin the process of restoring an open and transparent government to the Town of Indian Trail, North Carolina.

Hello all! My name is Brittany Hicks (Hurt). I am 23 years old from Johnson County, KY. At age 19, I was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance. In 2009, I was convicted of said charge. I was given a 5 year sentence with possibility of shock probation. After spending 7 months in KCIW, I was granted the said shock probation. Immediately after release, I signed into a substance abuse rehabilitation program.
I completed the program at the very end of 2009, and began my journey as a sober, productive member of society. In early 2010, I enrolled in KCTCS and began taking classes towards earning an Associated degree in Medical Information Technology with an administrative option. Many things such as financial aid eligibility has stood in my way. I am a fighter, so I fight for what I truly believe in. I believe in myself and i believe people can change. I know, understand, and accept that laws are placed in order to protect the citizens and maintain justice for all. However, justice for me (a citizen) would be being allowed to to have a fresh start. I can't do this without expungement of my record when the time comes for that to happen.
I am found that with a felony conviction that you are so limited. I mean i know I committed a crime and I must be punished for it, but as i see it, it is though I am getting continuously punished over and over again each time an application asks about a criminal record. I try my best to always do what's right and cause no trouble. I was just young and dumb and made bad decisions.
In the past 32 years, the Iranian fascist regime has executed tens of thousands of Iranians--mostly prisoners of conscience and members of minority religious groups. We believe that no one is entitled to take another person's life. This motivated us to start a 10,000,000-signature campaign to abolish death penalty in Iran.

TO THE HONOURABLE THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
The petition of certain representatives of a ‘minority ethnic Latin American community’
Draws to the attention of the House:
The Minister for Immigration discretionary power under s499 of the Migration Act 1958 and the Ministerial guidelines for unique and exceptional circumstances created under this section of the Act.
The community expectation that the Minister for Immigration will comply with this provision of the Migration Act 1958 without breaches to the ‘hearing rule’.
IT IS SUBMITTED that the Minister decision stating ‘it would not be in the public interest to intervene’, was derived from a ‘flawed assessment’ on the Applicant’s case (CLF2011/85543). The Minister ‘ignored’ to consider the applicant’s brother who is resident of Australia. Therefore, lack of ‘procedural fairness’ is a clear breach to the ‘hearing rule’. The decision must be declared invalid due to an ‘administrative error’.
IT IS SUBMITTED that the Judiciary system of Australia has not jurisdiction to review such decision. The Applicant’s brother and family members resulted aggrieved. The Applicant previously applied for Protection visa, if returned to Colombia his life would be in high risk of danger which will bring psychological consequences to his brother.
Pakistani Hindus are 4.5 million, a large minority, being long term inhabitants (for hundreds years).
In Pakistan almost all the religious communities have their respective marriages registration rules and certificate of marriages for married couples, except Hindu community. For Muslims, in the year of 1961-62 laws and rules were framed to register the Muslim marriages. According to these regulations a Muslim marriage is registered with an officially appointed person, which is called “Nikah-Khawan” in vernacular language. The official is duly appointed by the government, with a license to issue certificate of marriage that is “Nikah-Naama”. The certificate is a recognized deed with presumption that the marriage is consummated and performed legally, in accordance with law. The document is acceptable to all government and private departments.
The courts of the land are also bound to give presumption of truth to the certificate of the marriage, meaning there by, that the persons are legally husband and wife. Same is the case with Pakistani Christians, Parsis, Sikhs and other minorities. Why not Pakistani Hindus? The Question is substantial.
The Pakistani Hindu couples face lots of problems due to non availability of their certificate of marriages.
1. The couples are without legal entity and proof of their spouse ship.
2. The acknowledgement of their matrimonial relationship is at the sweet will of concerned authorities or departments in Pakistan, whether the officials recognize them as husband and wife or otherwise.
3. For the preparation of necessary documents like National Identity Card, Domicile, Passports and other documents the marital status of the applicant is mandatory. Questions and required answers like; whether one is married or bachelor? If married, the name of spouse? Proof of marriage? Any certificate of marriage? Identity of the spouse with documents?-----are always problematic for the Hindu married applicants. At the moment the couples are helpless, at the mercy and grace of those officials. Here the couples may be refused or graced to be awarded with the document. The non availability of the marriage certificate, sometime, begets corruption syndrome.
4. Sometimes, in court cases husband, refuses to recognize the other partner as his/her better half to avoid financial liability of wife and kids. Even in a number of cases the parentage ship of the children were denied by the father. In this situation the lady wife is in predicament to prove her wife ship or/and parentage ship of her minor children, as she has no document, at all, to prove her version.
5. During travelling on their way, on public places, hotels & motels, especially on police checking, the Hindu couples are in miserable position to prove them to be the husband and wife. Because on a number of occasions the proof of husband and wife is mandatory requirement.
6. Likewise in civil, family and criminal matters in the society, law enforcement agencies and courts, the Hindu couples faces a lot of problems.
The crime rate in Singapore is one of the lowest in the world. They have a Crime Rate Per 100,000 population of 650. The United States alone has a Crime Rate Per 100,000 population of 4249.4, with the State of California ranking 15th in the country for highest crime rate.
Following a similar model that implements caning as punishment, as done in Singapore, is a better deterrent for criminals than the current system that is in place.
The law changes will mean that people charged with the possession of Cannabis in small quantities will face larger fines and possible jail sentences. These changes are simply unnecessary, unwarranted and unintelligent.
New laws come into effect August 1st, 2011.
Hunting whales has dated back to 3000BC and should have been made illegal years ago. The ocean is their home just like the land is ours, they did nothing to hurt us so why should we kill them?
They are beautiful creatures and they will become extinct if you ignore all the petitions people are making to get your attention.
A number of studies show that THC provides medical benefits for cancer and AIDS patients by increasing appetite and decreasing nausea. It has also been shown to assist some glaucoma patients by reducing pressure within the eye, and is used in the form of cannabis by a number of multiple sclerosis patients, who use it to alleviate neuropathic pain and spasticity. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is currently supporting further research into these uses.
In August 2009 a phase IV clinical trial by the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel was started to investigate the effects of THC on post-traumatic stress disorders. THC and other cannabinoid agonists have been shown to be beneficial both in open label studies, as well as in laboratory experiments with animals to ameliorate post-traumatic stress disorders.
Preliminary research on synthetic THC has been conducted on patients with Tourette syndrome, with results suggesting that it may help in reducing nervous tics and urges by a significant degree. Research on twelve patients showed that Marinol reduced tics with no significant adverse effects. A six-week controlled study on 24 patients showed that the patients taking dronabinol had a significant reduction in tic severity without serious adverse effects. More significant reduction in tic severity was reported with longer treatment. No detrimental effects on cognitive functioning and a trend towards improvement in cognitive functioning were reported during and after treatment.
Dronabinol's usefulness as a treatment for TS cannot be determined until/unless longer controlled studies on larger samples are undertaken. Research on THC has shown that Cannabinoid receptors are responsible for mediated inhibition of dopamine release in the retina. A growing number of people around the world and in Canada are ingesting Hemp Oil, THC, and curing themselves of life threatening Cancers and other diseases in weeks.
Question:Do you want honey cut with corn syrup or do you want pure honey?
Answer: Say "yes" to pure honey!
Legislation is in the NYS legislature to define pure honey (S3321). Due to adulterated Chinese honey entering the US food stream, a more definitive description of pure honey is needed. This Bill is needed to protect the image of pure honey and to protect the consumer from adulterated honey or honey pretenders.
New York beekeepers also need a level playing field to compete with cheap adulterated imports by having an established reasonable standard for all products labeled "honey".
This legislation should not affect the majority of honey producers in New York, but may weed out and discourage those seeking to sell substandard honey in New York.
This legislation has the support of major beekeeping organizations in New York and is almost identical to the California standard of identity for honey, which has been in place since 2009.

Please support the following petition to have the current private motorcycle imports laws, pertaining to motorcycle’s built after 1989, amended to permit the private importation of Australian Design Rule (ADR) compliant motorcycles.
Currently the private import scheme is too restrictive and excludes Australian's from privately importing post 1989 motorcycles for personal road going use. This petition calls on the Hon Anthony Albanese MP, Leader of the House, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, to introduce a bill to make amendments to the current laws.
We ask that the law be changed to allow the importation of motorcycles into Australia that have been granted ADR certification in the past (Australia most often imports European specification bikes direct from the factories), and have historically been sold on the Australian market with full ADR compliance.
We believe that we should be able to privately import, for road use, a motorcycle model that has historically been granted ADR approval, but is no longer being made by the factory, or being sold new by the official importers as the factory has discontinued the model. Currently potential owners are restricted in being able to purchase these motorcycles on the Australian market due to the small numbers of motorcycles being imported.
The current regulations deny motorcycle enthusiasts the opportunity of importing, and registering bikes (often limited edition models) for road use. We ask that motorcycle models that have previously been brought into Australia by the official importers in small numbers (often due to limited worldwide availability by the parent factory), and are not readily available for purchase on the local market, be permitted to be imported into Australia and registered for road use.
The current regulations do not allow a citizen to import a motorcycle made after 1989, unless they have lived overseas, and owned it for a period of 2 years. Alternatively you can import a post 1989 motorcycle as a local resident, if you are prepared to submit the motorcycle to the ADR certification process again yourself, which can easily cost tens of thousands of dollar’s (so this makes it unaffordable), and yet that exact same bike model in European specification was sold here 4-5 years ago with full ADR certification!
If the regulations are amended by allowing discontinued models to be imported that are either no longer either produced by the factory, or imported by the Australian distributor this will still protect the local motorcycle industry.
The series finale of "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" will be airing Sunday, June 26, 2011. The ratings are gradually getting better. The return of Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe has returned "CI" to it's early glory days. We can't let the best "Law and Order" go away.
One animal rights campaigner did not approve of how animals were being treated at a certain place, so she joined a peaceful protest and within seconds the police arrived. Despite the best efforts of the other campaigners, this woman landed with broken legs and arms and just lies in bed and cries herself to sleep most nights.
All they were doing is peacefully and legally saying no. Isn't it about time that we started targetting the ones that actually ARE extremists and not peaceful campaigners?
We are ever delving in to peoples personal lives, with data being stored in all kinds of physical and digital states; in an ever expanding list of places e.g. cyberspace, police, local authorities, banks, mobile phones.
But much of this stored data is an infringement of our right to a 'Private and Family Life' as indicated in the Human Rights Act.
Now as a parent I consider the 'Law' and the associated powers to be a stringent and essential part of our lives in dealing with crime and potential acts of crime. However a 'Police Caution' is not a 'Sentence' or 'Conviction' and thus should not be allowed to remain on Police records as it is not a 'Spent Crime'. But the retention of this 'Caution' can be pretty damning, similarly as points on our drivers licence has the same effect. But even those points are removed once the offence has been 'Spent'. So why is it then that the law permits a 'Caution' to remain for 99-100 years on police records?
A 'Police Caution' is just that - a 'Caution' and not a conviction, therefore it should not remain indefinitely but serve as a deterrent for a prescribed amount of time e.g. four years.
