3. Keep South Park: Keep It On TV, Not Just Online

I am sorry to announce bad news about South Park. There was an interview with Trey Parker and Matt Stone and in which they said they signed a 3 year longer contract after the 12th season. It will be from seasons 13-15.

There is also a problem with this because even though there is going to be 3 more seasons, I am sorry to tell you that South Park will no longer be on the air. It will only be online and were here to change it. So sign the petition.

Trey Parker amd Matt Stone also said that they believe that because more people do not watch the episode on tv and just wait for it online, that they will make more money by putting it only online.

4. Stop Cloned Meat or Milk (and byproducts)

Ok, so I'm not trying to preach to the world that ingesting animals is wrong....

By my own choice I try to eat meat as little as possible, due to some graphic
and
violent videos I've seen on how cruel Food Manufacturing Workers, are to the
animals that we do eat. To each their own.... right?

However, what really bothers me, is that now the FDA has approved cloning of
meats and allowing Biotech Firms, such as Viagen and Trans Ova Genetics of
Sioux Center, the 2 major firms in the U.S. involved, to integrate meats and
milk from these genetically identical cattle and other livestock, into our grocery
stores and restaurants, without having to label them???!!!!! Yes, we know
FastFood Restaurants are bad for us, but at least we are informed of their risks,
and we have the choice to eat it or not..... when this cloned meat, milk and its
byproducts (which includes, cheese, yogurt, icecream... and the many other
products derived or which include milk as an ingredient) are being allowed to be
intermingled with the real?

Astronomically, it really limits what we can knowingly or "safely," purchase or
ingest. I mean yes, there is always organic, however realistically, that is not as
easily accessible or affordable to the majority of the nation, which pretty much
leaves many with no choice.

Even as a very sporadic meat eater, I have a huge problem with this cloned
meat infiltration approved by the FDA. I have many friends and family, people
whom I care about and love that eat meat almost everyday.... I do not have a
problem with anyone choosing to eat meat, but I have a problem that they no
longer have a choice in where their meat comes from. And even, if I'm not
talking about "meat" itself, milk and the other byproducts are a staple in the
diet of many people in this country.

Cloned animals such as "Dolly the Sheep,"died prematurely of severe lung
disease and also suffered from arthritis at an unexpectedly early age.... and
even few cloned babies that appear to be normal at birth, we will have to wait
up to 20 years to make sure they are not going to have problems later, ie)
growing old too fast. Even a string of "healthy" clones produced, there is a
likelyhood that many clones born in the future may have severe medical
problems, as everytime a clone is made, it is like "throwing the dice." And yet,
that is what these Biotech Firms and the FDA are claiming is safe for us to put
into our system.

Though we may not see the possible effects of this in our generation, it breaks
my heart to even think about what birth defects, diseases and such, may
plague our generations to come.

And one also has to wonder..... why are we cloning meat to eat? Cloning is
actually is expensive and an extensive and time-consuming procedure, have we
injected and feed our livestock so many chemicals, anti-biotics, and hormones
that they are no longer able to reproduce on their own? It's not even so much
that my concern is that humans seem like they playing god, but in my opinion,
it seem very much like we keep sweeping the effects of us tampering with
nature under the rug and pretending that in our own little secretly, health
harming world, is nothing more than "perfect" and medically and technologically
advanced, instead of trying to solve the real problems.

5. Objection to proposed development of Old School House, Bradshaw

The proposed development of the 'Old School house' and cark park areas will have devastating effect on the local community.

The proposed erection of five three storey town houses along Lea Gate will not be in keeping with the village and conservation area. The local businesses will be adversely affected as parking for the Conservative Club and Church Garden Fisheries will no longer be available at this site.

Neighbours on Leagate will no longer have parking available to them. Trees have been earmarked for felling...this is supposed to be a conservation area!! You cannot have a satellite dish, but proposals for three storey houses made from stone, Timber and metal window frames may go ahead.

6. Juniors Stillness School

Stillness Juniors was once a sought after school where parents would move into the catchment area so that their children could attend.

This school used to have a waiting list as classes were too full. So why in the last 4 years have parents been removing their children and placing them into other local schools or more drastically, moving out of the area all together?

Almost all the classes are now not fully subscribed. The amount of Teachers that have come and subsequently left the Juniors in the last 4 years is unprecedented. This in turn is affecting the superbly run infants & nursery school. If like me and many others you are unhappy with the way the Juniors is being run and feel that Stillness Junior School is desperately in need of a change of management then please sign this petition.

Let's again make Stillness Juniors a school we want to send our kids to. When we have enough signatures a copy will be sent to Ofsted, Lewisham Education Authority, the Mayor, our Local MPs, and the board of Governors. This petition in no way reflects against the hard working teachers in the juniors.

7. Federal Student Aid Policy

July 19, 2006

To reform the Dependent Policy to qualify for Federal Financial Aid (College). This would change how an indivdual is classified when applying for aid to fund post-secondary education.

Those not eligible as a dependent on their parents' tax returns wold no longer be classified as dependents on the FAFSA.

This would allow those young people who do not recieve financial support from their parents to qualify for many more grants and loans.

8. Jetix and Toon Disney

The goal of this petition is to (plan A) convince the Walt Disney Company to remove the Jetix programming block from the Toon Disney channel's line-up, or (plan B) to convince them to launch an all new channel specifically for Toon Disney's older programming, classic Disney animated movies, and Mickey, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy shorts, ECT.

This channel would be similar to the successful "Boomerang" channel, which Cartoon Network launched in 2000.

In February 2004, Disney added a new action programming block called "Jetix"(which was already featured mornings on the ABC Family channel), which aside from "Gargoyles", featured absolutely no Disney cartoons. Instead, it airs these shows "A.T.O.M.", "Power Rangers" (which is not even animated), "The Tick", "Digimon", "Kong: the animated series", "Dragon Booster", "Daigunder", "Dungeons and Dragons", "Get Ed", "NASCAR Racers", "Oban Star Racers", "Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go!", "Silverwing", "Yin Yang Yo", "Jackie Chan Adventures", and more.

At first it wasn't so bad, as the Jetix block was only a few hours long each day, but as time passed it kept expanding, first to five hours on weekdays and a bit longer on weekends. Now Jetix is practically eating Toon Disney alive, airing from 7:00pm - 8:00am (13 hrs) on weekdays and 4:00pm - 8:00am (16 hrs) on weekends. EDIT: They just recently removed Jetix from ABC Family and now Jetix has extended even further and now has a lengthly morning block as well :-(

Now I am not trying to say that the Jetix shows are bad, actually some of them are quite good, but the fact remains, they do not belong on the Toon Disney network.

It would be a good idea to launch a separate channel for Jetix oriented programming in the U.S. The United Kingdom has a channel specifically for Jetix programming, so why not do this for the U.S. as well?

If this cannot be done, we would like you to consider launching an all new channel specifically for Toon Disney's older programming, similar to the successful "Boomerang" channel which Cartoon Network launched in 2000. This new channel could also feature classic Mickey, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy shorts and Disney animated features such as "Dumbo", "Robin Hood", and "Alice in Wonderland" as well.
By doing this you can keep both the Jetix block and the newer Disney cartoons you have put on the network, such as "Kim Possible", "Brandy & Mr. Whiskers", "Dave the Barbarian", "The Proud Family", "Lilo and Stitch: the series", and "American Dragon: Jake Long", while still keeping fans of Toon Disney's older programming satisfied.

In November 2004, a very large amount of programming that the network was originally intended for was removed from the line-up and has not been seen since then. Some of these displaced shows included "Darkwing Duck", "Goof Troop", "DuckTales", "101 Dalmations: the series", "Pepper Ann", "Bonkers", "Teacher's Pet", "Quack Pack", "Mighty Ducks: the animated series", "Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers", "The Weekenders", "Fillmore", "Lloyd in Space",, "TaleSpin" and "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh".
We want these shows to be brought back to the channel along with "Jungle Cubs" and "Gummi Bears", which have not been seen on U.S. airwaves since 2001.

If you support this petition and its cause please help by signing the petition.

9. Protection of the community from child sex offenders

May 26, 2006

This Petition will be mailed to All Australian Members of the Senate in Parliament.

Child abuse is way out of control and it is time to turn the light on these sex offenders who have been getting away with the most Unacceptable... Who have been interfering with the rights of others, who have denied and exploited their responsibility as role-model and guardian.

We must All make ourselves accountable… it is time to face this front on, together!

What's needed is Prevention and Zero tolerance!!!

What's needed is Greater public awareness through Education!

CONSIDER THIS: The word Victim should not be used. We do not want to encourage victimhood; 'Fear' This word implies one person is victorious over the other who is helpless, this word gives power away. The word predator should not be used...it promotes domninace to one side and instills fear and helplessness to the other side. Instead the abuser should be understood through description... as very sick, deeply immoral, deeply selfish, out of control, deficient in remorse therefore completely untrustworthy, sly, manipulative, unpredictable, harmful, violent... this would help avoid manipulation.

We can no longer function from fear...and we can no longer remain ignorant as ignorance is the greatest breeder of fear.

We are no longer victims when the so called predator sees we are the ones watching them...When what we say and what is done speaks the message that abusive behavior will not be tolerated the dominator will loose his power.

10. Remove Vermont Judge Cashman

January 26, 2006

Rapist's 60 DAY Prison Sentence Triggers Outrage

Burlington, Vermont -- January 4, 2005

There was outrage Wednesday when a Vermont judge handed out a 60-day jail sentence to a man who raped a little girl many, many times over a four-year span starting when she was seven.

The judge said he no longer believes in punishment and is more concerned about rehabilitation.

Prosecutors argued that confessed child-rapist Mark Hulett, 34, of Williston deserved at least eight years behind bars for repeatedly raping a littler girl countless times starting when she was seven.

But Judge Edward Cashman disagreed explaining that he no longer believes that punishment works.

"The one message I want to get through is that anger doesn't solve anything. It just corrodes your soul," said Judge Edward Cashman speaking to a packed Burlington courtroom. Most of the on-lookers were related to a young girl who was repeatedly raped by Mark Hulett who was in court to be sentenced.

The sex abuse started when the girl was seven and ended when she was ten. Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of eight to twenty years in prison, in part, as punishment.

"Punishment is a valid purpose," Chittenden Deputy Prosecutor Nicole Andreson argued to Judge Edward Cashman.

"The state recognizes that the court may not agree or subscribe to that method of sentencing but the state does. The state thinks that it is a very important factor for the court to consider," Andreson added.

But Judge Cashman explained that he is more concerned that Hulett receive sex offender treatment as rehabilitation. But under Department of Corrections classification, Hulett is considered a low-risk for re-offense so he does not qualify for in-prison treatment. So the judge sentenced him to just 60 days in prison and then Hulett must complete sex treatment when he gets out or face a possible life sentence.

Judge Cashman also also revealed that he once handed down stiff sentences when he first got on the bench 25 years ago, but he no longer believes in punishment.

"I discovered it accomplishes nothing of value;it doesn't make anything better;it costs us a lot of money; we create a lot of expectation, and we feed on anger," Cashman explained to the people in the court.

The sentence outraged the victim's family who asked not to be identified.

"I don't like it," the victim's mother,in tears, told Channel 3. "He should pay for what he did to my baby and stop it here. She's not even home with me and he can be home for all this time, and do what he did in my house," she added.

Hulett -- who had been out on bail-- was taken away to start his sentence immediately.

After issuing the original sentence, Cashman was attacked by commentators on TV and on the Internet. On Fox News, Bill O'Reilly told viewers as video of Cashman rolled: "You may be looking at the worst judge in the USA." Gov. James Douglas called on the judge to resign, and several lawmakers demanded his impeachment.

11. Game demos should be longer

December 21, 2005

Re: Trymedia Systems demo policy.

I think it would be easier to decide if you want to buy a game if you have a demo that is longer than 1 hour.

I think the demos should be at least longer than a week but shorter than 1 month so you can see what features you can unlock in the games.

13. Relocation of Santa Barbara Comunity Academy to the campus of La Cumbre Junior High

The Santa Barbara Community Academy no longer has adequate space at its current campus, 215 East Ortega St. The School Board has decided it will no longer support and move forward with plans to expand the current campus. A option presented was to possible move a portion of the SBCA to the campus of La Cumbre Junior High. Having already experienced negative effects of a split campus this option is not ideal and is not supported.

Currently there are 18 empty classrooms at LaCumbre Junior High and existing land surrounding the school where the Academy's portables and other empty portables in the district could be moved. The campus has a auditorium and cafeteria in addition to much more adequate playground facilities.

15. Change Lifeguard Swimsuits for NJ State Park Lifeguards

Every year a wish list is created for the following year and every year a request is made to issue improved swim suits for the females and males. Every year that request is denied for each region.

Listed below are the suits being requested and the reasoning behind the request. It is our intention that with the signature of every NJ State Park Lifeguard in favor of the swimsuit change, the request will no longer be small enough to be overlooked. And as well known that all lifeguards are in favor of these changes, without documentation, it unfortunately does not count.

22. Lowering Neighborhood Speed Limit in Portland, TX

This petition is asking for the current speed limit of 30mph to be lowered to 15mph due to child safety.

This petition is written for the purpose of lowering the current speed limit of 30mph to the purposed limit of 15mph. Many families in our subdivision have children that enjoy spending time playing outside. During the timesthey enjoy playing is the busiest time of day for traffic. Several times there are drivers, who do the speed limit, but put our children at risk. It is proven that larger vehicles take a longer amount of time to come to a complete stop at certain speeds. Today many more people are driving the bigger vehicles. The roads are also very narrow. On many occasions there have been vehicles parked on either side of the road. This allows only one car to pass at a time. The speed limit does not allow safe passage of vehicles during this time. If by some chance a small child is playing ball and the ball happens to roll into the road the vehicles dont realize in an adequate amount of time.

Greetings! Atlanta, GA The House of Prayer Rev. Arthur Allen, Jr.
Our pastor has been arrested along with members of our church for upholding the word of God. Proverbs 13:24, 24:13-14 specifically command Christians to discipline our children in ways that they will learn the differences between right and wrong. Because of the proposed government (worldly) ways of disciplining our children, we feel that our society has deteriorated. This is because our government has decided that we no longer need God in government!

27. Parent/citizen concern for students attending Jefferson Township Schools

We the parents of students attending our Jefferson Township Schools are concerned about the failure rates of our children/students. It appears that parents have voiced their concern an approximately (ongoing) 3-4 yrs. in reference to this matter and the board members have listened and stated they are not hearing enough complaints,nor have the principals of these buildings, and the previous superintendent's. This is false, and definitely not true. Some of us parent's have contacted the Superintendent and the previous Principals to no avail. We were assured improvement would be made and to date it has not, and now our children are also being harrassed by teachers.

If one teacher voices a complaint about a student or more students, then the other teachers that the students also attend classes with are gathered to meet and discuss negatively in a meeting with said child or children. THIS TRULY LOWERS THE SELF-ESTEEM OF OUR CHILDREN AND THEY DON'T WANT TO ATTEND THE CLASS OF SAID TEACHER'(S) NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT. "WE ARE TIRED AND WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT THIS BEHAVIOR TOWARD OUR CHILDREN." The teaching concept no longer has any regard to the title "TEACHER".
