The Tasmanian Parliament is considering a law that would make it illegal to sell tobacco products to anybody born after the year 2000.
This would not apply to retailers outside Tasmania (including online sales) and would not restrict criminal gangs selling illicit product.
This Bill would have a major impact on locally owned businesses. Not only to the owners and their families, but to the people employed by these businesses.
The Bill WILL:
• Prevent the sale of tobacco products to persons born since the year
2000, that is, members of the tobacco-free generation.
• Prevent the supply of tobacco products by licensed tobacco sellers, or
their agents, to members of the tobacco-free generation.
• Provide that members of the tobacco-free generation must not give
false identification to tobacco sellers and there would be a penalty for
• NOT prevent members of the tobacco-free generation from smoking, or
attempting to purchase tobacco products. Members of the tobacco-free
generation would not incur any penalties for smoking.
• NOT prevent friends and family from giving tobacco products, such as
cigarettes, to members of the tobacco-free generation, however, they
must not SELL tobacco products to the tobacco-free generation.
• NOT prevent “botting” of cigarettes by members of the tobacco-free
generation. They would be able to acquire cigarettes from another
person other than a retailer or agent and would not incur any penalties
for doing so.
Do these adults not have a right to make their own choices?
We don't want your sales anymore! Economy is decay, because every one player know to you will give us sale for some product every month. We don't want that!
We want to sell our companies for our prices, not for your half price!
Estate Agents in the Western Cape have to pay about R1500 per annum for 6 stickers to enable them to display "On Show" boards on a Sunday afternoon.
This is a very high price to pay to enable them to do their job.
The proposed ordinance is to promote the health, safety and welfare of the public and local pet population by reducing the number of unwanted dogs and cats entering the Dane County Humane Society and local dog rescues, and surrounding community shelters and rescues.
The citizens request that Dane County adopt more aggressive pet overpopulation control measures and protect the well being and welfare of all animals, and be a model, progressive county in which other counties in Wisconsin and across the country can emulate.
The citizens of Dane County recognize that the overpopulation of dogs and cats is exacerbated by the reckless breeding of dogs and cats for the sole purpose of profit over animal welfare. Implementing regulations relating to the retail sale of these animals will decrease the number of animals entering the Dane County Humane Society as well as other shelters and rescues in adjoining communities.
The Proposed Ordinance is as follows:
Sale of Dogs and Cats at Retail Stores
Sale of Non-Shelter-Obtained Animals Prohibited
a. “Companion Animal” means any nonhuman animal owned, possessed by, cared for, or controlled by a person, who is treated by that person or another as a pet companion, or member of the family.
b. “Companion Animal Store” means any retail establishment open to the public that sells or transfers, or offers for sale or transfer, companion animals. A person who sells or transfers only companion animals that were bred and raised directly by that person, shall be considered a companion animal breeder and not a companion animal store.
c. “Animal shelter" means a municipal animal shelter or duly incorporated nonprofit organization devoted to the rescue, care and adoption of stray, abandoned or surrendered animals and which does not breed animals.
d. “Certificate of source" means a document declaring the source of the companion animal sold or transferred, or offered for sale or transfer by the companion animal store. The certificate shall include the name and address of the source of the companion animal and shall be signed by both the companion animal store certifying the accuracy of the certificate, and by the purchaser or transferee of the companion animal acknowledging receipt of the certificate.
II. Sale or transfer of dogs and cats.
No companion animal store shall sell or transfer, or offer for sale or transfer, any dog or cat, unless the animal has been obtained by the companion animal store from an animal shelter or animal rescue organization.
III. Certificate of source.
A companion animal store shall post and maintain in a conspicuous place, on or within three feet of each animal's kennel, cage or enclosure, a certificate of source for each dog or cat offered for sale or transfer, and shall provide a copy of such certificate to the purchaser or transferee of any dog or cat sold or transferred.
IV. Violations; enforcement damages.
a. Any person who commits an act in violation of this chapter is guilty of a misdemeanor and may be prosecuted for such violation pursuant to Section *** of this code. Alternatively, a violation of this chapter may be charged as an infraction pursuant to Section *** of this code in which case, upon conviction, the person shall be punishable as provided in Section *** of this code.
b. The city may initiate a civil action in any court of competent jurisdiction to enjoin any violation of this chapter.
c. A companion animal store found to have falsified a certificate of source shall pay $2,500 in damages to each recipient of such falsified certificate.
Georgia is one of only three states with a total ban of retail sales of alcohol on Sundays. This "blue law" places an unjustifiable inconvenience on citizens throughout this State.
This inconvenience leads to a loss of tax revenue and possibly more drunk driving. Most importantly, the current law robs Georgians of the right of local control.
Please sign our petition, to get my friend back to the USA. Valentina, has been a US resident for over 20 years. She MARRIED TO A US CITIZEN & went back to ITALY, to save her mother's life. Upon her return, she was deported back to Italy, being told her visa is expired.

SWORD FIGHT against BREAST CANCER!
CALLING ALL WARRIORS! Raise your mighty swords, in the Battle, against Stage IV metastasis of Breast Cancer. Dana, just had her 2nd scan, the results show, the cancer is 50% less than the last scan.
HOWEVER, we have had to cut her treatments from 3 per week, to once per week, due to insufficient funds. We are desperately seeking donations, however, we understand, if you are unable to help in this way.
Please, in the very least pass this along, to all your associates, friends, & otherwise. You would be amazed to find out how many lives, have been affected by Breast Cancer. If everyone, passes this along, & then everyone, who receives this, passes it on, & so on, the possibilities are endless.
This is our present city ordinance.
It shall be unlawful for a convenience store, service station or other type of retail establishment holding a permit authorizing the sale of beer and light wine for off-premises consumption to:
(1) To sell beer or light wine to any person between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on Monday through Saturday, and between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.
(2) To permit consumption of beer or light wine on the premises of the store or retail establishment.
(3) To sell, give or furnish beer or light wine to any person visibly intoxicated or to any insane person, or to any habitual drunkard, or to any person under the age of twenty (21) years.
(4) To permit on the premises any lewd, immoral, or improper entertainment, or conduct or practices.
(5) To permit or suffer gambling or the operation of games of chance upon the licensed premises unless otherwise allowed by the Mississippi Gaming Act.
(6) To receive, possess or sell on the premises any beverage of any kind or character containing more than five (5) percent alcohol by weight.
(7) To display or sell beer or light wine from an ice tub or similar container, other than a mechanical refrigeration unit.
This is our present city ordinance. There are some people in our community that would like to change the ordinance due to the fact they say we are losing much needed sales tax revenue to the county and Louisiana, where beer and light wine can be purchased all day, every day.
I am a local Brown Belt Nia teacher, who would like to use a derelict building to offer Nia - health, fitness and well-being classes for all ages.
The building we propose to use has been empty for the last few years and starting to fall into disrepair. It is the old sales building on Windsor Quay, Cardiff and was only granted a temporary planning permission and now a demolition order has been served on it.
The plan is to destroy the building and replace it with landscaped gardens. In other words a piece of grass or flower bed.
We believe that repairing the building and making good use of it by offering small community classes that will improve the health and well-being of local people is more valuable than their plans. Tearing it down would be absurd. It would be a poor environmental and social decision to do this.
Nia is a barefoot practice and over the last 6 years our group has been desperately looking for a safe, clean space where we would be able to dance. We would create a place where everyone would be welcome - providing classes for all ages and all backgrounds. We would dance, share, get fit, heal, inspire and be inspired.
The exciting news is that the building's owners would even donate it to us as they see us offering value to the community and they don't want to tear it down.
The only thing stopping us is the Cardiff Council Planning Department.
Please support us, tell all your friends, help us find Nia a home in Cardiff. Sign our petition to show how important it is that we save this building and use it for a good cause - improving the health and well-being of the whole community.
On March 26th, 2009, the Ontario government announced the introduction of a single sales tax on July 1, 2010 to "further strengthen Ontario’s economic growth and tax competitiveness".
While attempting to alleviate the financial situation many Canadians will be put in, the McGuinty government will provide $10.6 billion in tax relief to people and $4.5 billion in tax relief to businesses over the course of three years.
However, the implementation of this tax will cause most items and services (such as legal services, real estate and gasoline) to increase dramatically; something us as Canadians are not at liberty to agree with in today's economic crisis.
The purpose of this petition is to challenge the intended introduction of the Harmonized Sales Tax on the provinces of Ontario. Those who sign this petition believe that this taxation will only hinder the economic growth of the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.
This petition aims to challenge the due diligence legal loophole allowing traders to avoid prosecutions on knife sales to youngsters by arguing they cannot do anything more to stop shop assistants from selling to under 18s.
As the Stanford University article states "American corporation IBM was the largest computer supplier in South Africa throughout the years of apartheid. In 1978 alone, IBM's South African sales jumped 250%; total annual sales amounted to approximately three hundred million dollars in 1982. Not only did IBM contribute tremendous computing power to the South African apartheid system, but of the fifteen hundred South African workers employed by IBM in 1982..."
It is clearly deeply disturbing that a company that has directly or indirectly supported the apartheid system through technology be allowed to function let alone administer this project.
Unhealthy and against nature - filthy used condoms are found all over our cities and streets and animals lick and ingest them as well as children thinking that they are balloons also play with them.
I would like for this petition to ban the group, My Chemical Romance. I realize this may not be possible but we should be able to put an age limit of 18 to purchase their music.
The facts are that this group and others like it are doing harm to our children! I have a very good friend and her 13 year old daughter was listening to them and wanted to kill herself. What kind of message are they sending to our children?
It is our duty to protect our children please join with me in this petition to put an age limit on this group and others like them.
15. Clean Up JCP
As of December 19 we associates at JCPenney are making a plea due to inequity in task demands with direct relation to the most senior associate 0856 - referred to, heron, as Hanan.
We, additionally, are citing her inappropriate conduct, and offensive behaviors, as reason for our plea to remove or transfer her from our department.
The tasks referred to above include refusal to maintain a clean and organized stockroom, while utilizing the room, in addition to not maintaining display organization standards on the sales floor, while selling. Disorganization occurs only due to customers removal of shoes and their understandable ineptness at replacing them.
This task load is most often placed upon the other employees (ourselves), often of later shifts. The rule at JCP is for each associate to clean up after his or her own customers', replace the boxes to their specific locations in the back room, and to restore neatness to ALL displays used in the associates own shift--hence, the reason for establishing commission incentives for shoe sales!
Furthermore, Hanan has made it impossible to discuss the issues with her directly. Interpersonal behaviors demonstrated by her have been of extreme negative value to ourselves and Family Shoes at JCPenney. These negative behaviors have included rebukes, insults, use of insensitive religious references, manipulation of new and longstanding associates and their commissions. These are considered considerably egregious acts by all fair standards.
Our repeated, verbally presented, requests to management and other supervisors have gone unheard.
The citizens for community vales wants to take a stand for our community. We do not want our community to be an advertisment for drinking alcohol and/or drinking alcohol and driving.
This sends a negitive message to our youth.
A petition to ensure the release of the Second, and hopefully third and fourth, Season of Sweet Valley High on DVD.
Fans of the show are saddened and outraged to learn that Season 2 may not be released due to poor sales of Season 1. We feel the low sales of Season 1 are due to poor marketing and distribution. It has only been released in the US and Canada and has had little to no marketing outside the internet.
Sweet Valley High fans everywhere want Beuna Vista to ensure the release of Season 2 on DVD, with extras if possible, so that Sweet Valley fans everywhere can have the memories of the TV show they love with them forever.
So everyone please sign this petition to get Sweet Valley High Season 2 out on DVD, and hopefully also Seasons 3 and 4.
Sweet Valley High fans everywhere.
We are the mass of fed up free-skiers and snowboarders. We are sick of Buck Hill's "Terrain-Park". In order for Buck Hill to prevent the loss of all our season pass sales (everyone who signs this petition) next season, Buck hill must do the following:
1.Fully groom the Terrain-Park bi-nightly.
2.Maintain safer jumps and table tops.
3. Construct various table tops, a small (10-15 foot), Medium (20-25 foot), and large (30-Up foot).
4. Have a few more difficult jump-up/jump-on rail/box features. No more ride-ons, at least not for everything.
5. Groom the halfpipe weekly.
6. Hire a new terrain-park manager (Doug from the Midwest Mmassacre, he has successfully transformed wild Mountain's, Spirit mountain's, and Welch Village's terrain parks into respectable terrain parks.)
We appreciate the fact that you purchased new terrain last season, but with how poorly you maintain it, it is worthless. Think of this as an investment to secure thousands of dollars that you might not get next year in season pass sales.
October 2, 2004
After the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989 the European Union Parliament adopted a resolution banning weapons sales to China. Now France and Germany suggest lifting the ban.
We strongly oppose this as human rights in China continue to deteriorate and China already has over 500 ballistic missiles aimed at Taiwan. Furthermore, lifting the ban would directly endanger Taiwan, lead to a regional arms race and destabilize global peace and stability.
*Wal-Mart is planning to upgrade its Miles City location to a Supercenter, which adds groceries to its product line.
*The population of greater Miles City is comprised of roughly 11,000 persons and is forecast to contract due to out-migration during the next ten years.
*There are already three large grocery stores currently serving the greater Miles City area.
*Therefore, the addition of a Wal-Mart Supercenter to our market would likely decrease the market share of each of the existing grocery stores to critical levels and would put at least one regional grocery store out-of-business.
*When Wal-Mart moved its discount store to Miles City, several locally-owned independent retail stores were closed within months as a result of Wal-Mart's predatory pricing.
*Wal-Mart is the world's largest retailer and second-largest corporation with annual revenue exceeding $245 billion, which equals the gross domestic product of five northern European nations.
*Wal-Mart controls 25-30% of the sales of consumer products in all categories.
*On average, Wal-Mart sales clerks earn $13,861 per year. The poverty line in the U.S. is $14,630 for a family of three.
*Wal-Mart is being sued by 1.6 million former female employees for systematically denying women equal pay and opportunities for promotion.
*Wal-Mart purchased $12 billion worth of Chinese goods in 2002, representing 10% of all U.S. imports from China.
*For each Wal-Mart employee hired in Miles City, it is estimated that seven jobs are lost from locally-owned businesses.
Minimize dui's on sunday in Georgia by allowing consumers to purchase alcohol at liqour stores, convienent stores, and supermarkets.
I've used ebay for years, I've seen THEM become richer and richer as the sellers get poorer and poorer. I have created this petition in an attempt to get the fees lowered.
Ebay has continually raised cost to list items on there auctions, they have created stores, bought out billpoint and paypal. They are obviously making more money off of our sales than we are. We the small sellers are loosing moneys, please lower fees or we will be looking to move elsewhere.
The Montgomery City Council will vote on May 15th to determine if City residents will be burdened with an additional one cent in sales tax... half from the City and half from the County. This petition is to oppose this proposed tax.
