1. Stop Hypocrisy: Stop David Cameron Representing UK at Nelson Mandela's Funeral

Over the next few days you will see David Cameron and the Tories shedding crocodile tears and telling the world what a great statesman Nelson Mandela was.

The truth is that the Tory party thought Mandela was just another grubby little peasant upstart for daring to take on his countries white ruling elite and some even publicly called for him to be hung or shot and would mock him at their Bullingdon club booze ups and young conservative parties and the FCS of which John Bercow was the then chair person and who is now the worst ''speaker of the house'' this country has ever had, and who constantly meddles in the freedom of information act to cover up Tory fraud on their expense claims and other misdemeanors.

They only changed their stance when it was clear that world opinion was now firmly on Mandela's side and that apartheid would eventually collapse, and that Mandela would become a world icon for freedom and human rights, and so they jumped on to the winning side's band wagon.

The aim of this petition is to show a mark of respect for a man who fought tirelessly against oppression . The People of the UK will not be represented by A Hypocrite.

2. Hank JR induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame

Hank Williams Jr is the Pete Rose of getting into country music's hall of fame. He is the most deserving singer/songwriter not in yet. He should have been in decades ago. He is labeled an outlaw and his political views are blinding the association's vision of his true talents.

He is more deserving than half of the already inducted. I need your help to show the association that he belongs. It is not right or fair to the music world and all his fans. He has been in the business since the 50's law starting out very young after his father passed. Do this for me and all his fans. Look at his music not his views.

Vote Hank Williams Jr. Thank you and God bless.

4. Save Indian Cricket icon - Sourav Ganguly - from constant malicious plots of Indian cricket authorities

Sourav Ganguly fans, Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) team supporters, and Indian cricket lovers across globe are greatly shocked, flabbergasted and humiliated by observing the recent IPL-3 award nomination pattern.

Sourav Ganguly despite being in tremendous batting form and one of the top contenders for ‘Orange cap’ for highest run getter in IPL-3, was not selected for best batsman category for IPL award Night to be held on 23rd April,2010.

After the group league, he stood at No. 3 in run getting with a 68 runs short from highest run getter Sachin Tendulkar (561).

Sourav Ganguly is/was selected for two categories:

Best captain:
http://www.iplt20.com/awards_viewer.php?dg=14

Best catch:
http://www.iplt20.com/awards_viewer.php?dg=15

Sourav took four marvelous catches in this IPL which were just a treat to your eyes! Sourav Tiwari ( First MI match) and Jadav's ( Delhi match) close-in blinders and then the stupendous catch of Yusuf Pathan of RR ( Compared to 1983 Kapil Dev's Richard catch in final and closer in nature Martin crowe's catch in 1987 Reliance Cup which was selected eventually the best catch in the tournament). In the last match against MI, again he was awarded Karbon Kamal catch for another superb catch!

IPL committee (actually BCCI) is doing every bit of politics by not giving DADA the nomination for best fielder this time! Sourav Ganguly- the best fielder!!
They (BCCI) and his critics can't think of!! At 38 , a person is showing this much of fitness - Dada's naysayer can't digest the fact and hence can't show the generosity and justice a bit to him. That's the level of Indian cricket authorities’ impartiality or better say - narrow lobbing and parochialism! If there is no backer for you in cricket board, board will not do any justice to you at all.

And the bigger politics the IPL award committee shows as Sourav Ganguly was not mentioned in best batsman nomination at all. All from top five run getter got selected except Sourav(Dada) despite being in top 3 run getter !! How ridiculous and shameless IPL governing body and award jury can be!

Dada scored nearly 500 runs (493) with an average of nearly 38 -- 37.92) Yusuf pathan is in the nomination list almost with 160 runs short of Sourav Ganguly with an average of 27! Strike rate can't be the excuse because Sourav Ganguly (SR -117) and Kallis' SR (119) are almost comparable. Another man, Murli Vijay is in nomination with same average of Dada with a 75 runs short of him! Srinivasan (BCCI Secretary) and Srikanth's (Selection Commitee chairman) Tamilnadu dominates now Indian cricket very shamelessly with addition of Lalit Modi's Rajasthan in this IPL-3. And that's why Murali Vijay and Yusuf are 'IN' in nomination and Sourav is 'OUT' despite being much better consistent bat in IPL-3!

Millions of cricket fan across globe perceive this incidence and recent actions of IPL award committee and jury as a conspiracy against Sourav Ganguly and the crux of this controversy is – special favouritism to a certain group of people. Cricket lovers also apprehend that without the morale support of a section of IPL and BCCI officials, award committee may not have attempted such a ludicrous and obnoxious nomination process which eventually questions the transparency and the integrity of IPL governing body.

We Indian cricket lovers see this action, as a deliberate malicious ploy and attempt against an iconic, statistically one of the most successful Indian cricketers in IPL 2010 and the best performer of Kolkata Knight Riders.

Hence, we Indians, KKR supporters and Sourav Ganguly fans are extremely annoyed and upset over such nomination process of IPL cricket body which lacks right selection yardstick and benchmark to a great extent.

Sourav Ganguly being our national pride, iconic cricketer in IPL and an international ambassador of cricket, we feel that our national image has been tarnished with such obnoxious act of IPL governing body in front of so many foreign players present in IPL and the rest of the cricket fraternity. It is needless to say that cricket, the game of etiquette, and its fraternity both have been humiliated as well with this malicious award nomination process by IPL governing body.

IPL chairman, Mr. Lalit Modi is rightfully answerable to the entire cricket fraternity for his inconsistency and irregularities in action. He should take the onus of the wrong, doubtful award nomination process and make the necessary correction with immediate effect to bring more transparency in whole award giving process.

Support and show the solidarity for Dada!

Wear Dada at your heart: http://www.myntra.com/sourav-ganguly-tshirts

5. Kathi McDonald Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Kathi McDonald's landed the vocalist her first big professional gig when she was attending a concert and joined in as part of the audience. McDonald's powerful voice drew Ike Turner's notice in a club called the Winterland, and he invited the aspiring singer to his and Tina Turner's next rehearsal. McDonald had snagged a ...spot in the Ikettes, the Turners' backing group. It was a heady and magical beginning for someone who never had any formal lessons.

Born in Washington state in 1948, McDonald performed professionally for the first time around Seattle when she was 12 years old. At the age of 19 she set off for San Francisco and its burgeoning musical climate, where she met the Turners and, through her association with them, took the first step on a career path that would span more than four decades.

Not long after the evening at Winterland, her talent caught the attention of Big Brother & the Holding Company's Sam Andrew. McDonald threw her lot in with the band in 1969, leading to appearances on the albums Can't Go Home Again, How Hard It Is, and Be a Brother. She went on to sing with Mad Dogs & Englishmen for Joe Cocker, and later sang with Leon Russell's Shelter People. Her session work included recordings for such artists as the Rolling Stones, Nils Lofgren, Rita Coolidge, Delaney & Bonnie, and Dave Mason. Her work for other musical artists totals up to appearances on almost 160 albums, more than six dozen of which achieved gold status. In addition, McDonald also launched a solo career in 1974 with the release of the album Insane Asylum. The recording was arranged by Pete Sears, whose formal band associations include Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship.

Insane Asylum featured performances by Tower of Power, the Pointer Sisters, Aynsley Dunbar, John Cippolina, Neil Schon, and Ronnie Montrose. Kathi did not release another solo effort for 20 years, when Save Your Breath appeared. Above and Beyond followed in 1999, featuring contributions from Lee Oskar on harmonica and Brian Auger on keyboards. McDonald devoted more than two decades to recording and performing in collaboration with Long John Baldry, and the duo scored with their version of "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" when it was released in Canada. The song reached number 2 in Australia and also made the US charts.

Aside from collaborative efforts Kathi has solo projects of her own: Insane Asylum(1974), David Briggs, producer of the second Alice Cooper album Easy Action and multiple early Neil Young discs is at the helm on Insane Asylum. With arrangements by The Jefferson Starship's Pete Sears, whose formal band associations include Hot Tuna this is a showcase for the chops and musicianship of McDonald. There's a terrific reading of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" and an interesting first track co-written by McDonald and Pete Sears, "Bogart to Bowie," with Nils Lofgren on guitar and Bobbye Hall on percussion. The photos of McDonald on the back cover are chaotic and beautiful, a cartoon caricature of these adorns the cover, the illustration by Seiko Kashihara. With Ronnie Montrose on guitar and Pete Sears on keys for a heavy version of "(Love Is Like A) Heatwave," you basically have Big Brother & the Holding Company/ Montrose/Jefferson Starship covering Martha & the Vandellas. With what may be the best performance on the disc, "Threw Away My Love," the second Sears/McDonald original, Kathi's great, bluesy vocal fights and Journey's Neil Schon on guitar give the track tons of soul! "Freak Lover" features the late Starship violinist Papa John Creach and is appropriately manic for an album about insanity.

Willie Dixon's composition, "Insane Asylum," with Pete Sears and Nils Lofgren, is a blues workout deluxe. Neil Schon and Pete Sears accompany Kathi on a Peter Frampton tune, "All I Want to Be." Lofgren and Sears do a heavy cover of Neil Young's "Down to the Wire" for the singer to display her wonderful voice. There is an abundance of talent here, creating a nice platform for this important singer. Insane Asylum also featured performances by Tower of Power, the Pointer Sisters, Aynsley Dunbar, John Cippolina.

Her next solo project was Save Your Breath (1994), then Above And Beyond (1999) featuring contributions from Lee Oskar on harmonica and Brian Auger on keyboards. She reunited with Big Brother & the Holding Company in California for a concert on New Years Eve, 1997.

Her self-titled Kathi McDonald (2005) is a triumph in a long and prestigious career. This CD showcases the still incredible voice, timing, soulful delivery, and talent that is Kathi McDonald, the musician's choice as singer, the musician's musician, and still the biggest little white girl to ever sing the blues coming out of the West Coast. The main forces behind the CD, Pete Slauson and Ann Pierson (partners for years in the nineties at 2B1 Music, Maritime Hall, San Francisco, CA).

6. Free Ronnie Radke

Ronald Radke was sentenced due to a complication in the case of a crime he didn't commit. The main suspect in the case committed suicide so the law had nowhere else to point but the friend of the alleged murderer.

Justice is not served when you put a man away for something he didn't do. He needs to be placed in a rehab program not prison.

7. Heal The World Day

My name is Latonya Brown and I would like to introduce a resolution to the House of Representatives. Yesterday, we saw how the world came together in recognition of a legend. Michael Jackson has done so much for the world so much that Congressman Lee announced there's a resolution 600 that would name Michael Jackson A Humanitarian, LEGEND, and WORLD Icon.

Michael Jackson deserves a day of recognition for all of his humanitarian acts. I am no writer but I am a concerned fan and citizen. For years, people have misunderstood all that Michael Jackson was and is to so many. I think it's high time that he finally gets the respect that he truly deserves.

10. Bring back the original Crossroads

June 6, 2006

CROSSROADS the midlands tv motel soap refuses to die, started on ATV in 1964 it became a screen legend with meg richardson, diane hunter, benny hawkins and so many others.

CENTRAL tryed to distroy CROSSROADS in the 1980s and it was axed in 1988.

CROSSROADS returned in 2000 it was not the same so as we say we demand as fans the original CROSSROADS back as ATV made it not some joke like before so wake up itv and bring back this legend properly.

11. Bring back the Golden Shot

May 20, 2006

THE GOLDEN SHOT made by ATV from 1964 to 1978 was unique with bernie the bolt and the gold trimphone (which i now own) it was a crossbow firing legend.

Hosted by norman vaughn, bob monkhose and charlie williams all of whom are sadly no longer with us i feel the time has come for the legend that was the golden shot to come back.

12. Nintendo: Zelda MMORPG

This petition is for a Legend of Zelda MMORPG from Nintendo.

A Zelda MMORPG would be an amazing thing and a good use of Nintendos wifi network and emerging online status.

Link's world has been explored extensively over the past several years which provides immense amounts of gaming possibilities.

It would be nice to see integration of systems other than the Nintendo Wii, such as the DS for those on the go away from home. More importantly, a PC version that would integrate with a Wii version online would capture much more market and would be preferable. (I would personally opt for a Wii/PC release like Final Fantasy XI did, being the PC gamer I am, though I still plan on buying a Wii soon)

Again, if it were to be a Wii only title, that would be enough.

(Though, if it were not a Legend of Zelda MMO, a mix of multiple nintendo worlds in an MMORPG would be more versatile than a single game world structure such as pokemon or zelda alone.)

Sign this petition to let Nintendo know that we want a Legend of Zelda MMORPG.

13. Celtic fans Sing for Stan

December 30, 2205

This is not your average petition, this is a cry for all Celtic season ticket holders, and Celtic fans around the world.

Stan Petrov is a legend and we must voice our admiration, we MUST sing his name at parkhead.

Why this is not done on a regular basis is puzzling.

Kiss 'N Tell
Sing For The Unicorn
That Sinking Feeling
Doppelganger
Underworld Connections
Stinging A Stinger
A Hitch In The Works

16. Kasi Lemmons to direct "Candyman:Forever"

His congregation is beginning to lose faith. He is the writing on the
wall, the whisper in the classroom. Without these things he is
nothing.......

Kasi Lemmons is the talented breakout director of 1997's critical favorite
"Eve's Bayou" starring Samuel L. Jackson. She later directed him again in the film "The Caveman's Valentine". Kasi Lemmons may resonate more
familiarity as the Candyman's fearful victim in the first of the series'
film as Bernadette.

With her close ties to the series of Candyman and the debut film she
directed in the same vein of the Clive Barker film for which she is most
noteworthy she'd be an excellent choice to further tell the tale of the
great urban legend. Sign the petition to elect Kasi Lemmons as the director
of "Candyman: Forever".

I see this film telling the story from Daniel Robitaille's (Candyman) other
bloodline (i.e. his black family descendants of slaves). Envious of the
forbidden love he was denied, Candyman seeks a new victim within his family
by mirroring the same tragedy he experienced once ago.

18. Realistic Graphics for Zelda

This is a petition against the new "cartoon-like" graphics in the Legend of Zelda game coming out for Gamecube. At first, the graphics were supposed to be very realistic, like in the preview of Link and Ganondorf fighting. Now, they are very much like a cartoon, and not realistic at all. Many gamers were very excited about the amazing graphics, with the Gamecube's power, and now, almost all that power and excitement is going to waste.

If you agree that the graphics should be realistic and not like some cartoon please sign this petition. If you want to see the old realistic graphics, and then the new cartoons ones, go to http://cube.ign.com/previews/17012.html, which has videos of the realistic and cartoon graphics. Please Sign!
