1. DEMAND an end to any and all deficit spending

As President Ronald Reagan once said "You and I are told we must choose between a left, or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down."

We at "Let's Get this Right" agree with that statement and we recognize that the US economy is in enormous trouble. This includes Wall Street, the US Government, and every American living on main-street; no one is immune to the impact of the current economic situation.

When Wall Street needs help it turns to the government, when the government needs help it turns to the American people and when the American people need help, it is often too late for us to obtain help because the government has already over spent the tax dollars, fees and fines it collects as part of its daily function.

When it needs money for a spending bill, or a financial bailout, the government either cuts spending somewhere, shifts spending temporarily, raises taxes on the American people or simply prints more money.

2. Tennessee DOES NOT have the right to ban Pit Bulls!!

The reason for this petition is because State of TN is trying to pass a bill as of July 2008 that would say anyone simply owning a pit bull would be charged with a misdemeanor! I thought this was AMERICA.. I thought we were FREE!!

It all depends on how you raise a dog? I have seen other breeds of dogs kill innocent children and why aren't their breed being targeted? This just isn't fair!!!

Who said they can tell us we cant own a certain breed of dog? My pit bull is 12 weeks old and is MY DAUGHTER and I will fight for her!

3. Edinburgh MBChB Graduation

The University of Edinburgh has shown this year's cohort of Medicine graduates complete disrespect regarding our graduation ceremony.

The ceremony was initially moved from it's own slot in July to one on 28th June, instantly clashing with our shadowing week which we all need to undertake as a requirement for our jobs.

The ceremony was alotted to a time on 28th June when many other graduates of other courses will too be graduating, in the same session, unfairly limiting ticket availability for both those graduates of Medicine and the other graduates from the School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Divinity and School of Health in Social Science in attendance that afternoon. Two tickets per person is simply unacceptable. The event is likely to resemble something of a cattle market with so many graduates in attendance for one ceremony.

To add insult to injury, the university has "special" ceremonies set aside for graduates of Veterinary Medicine and Law. Graduates for these ceremonies get a minimum of 4 tickets per graduand and a ceremony solely for those graduates. We do not believe as graduates of Medicine we are in any way superior to a graduate of any other degree. We believe that graduation from any degree is a signficant achievement. We believe graduates of all courses should be treated the same.

We do not understand why of all degrees undertaken, if Medicine is not to be regarded as a degree that confers signficant acheivment or in need of a "special" ceremony of it's own, why Veterinary Medicine and Law continue to be treated as such. Medicine in Edinburgh has a far greater heriatage than that of any other degree taught at the university - Medicine has been taught in Edinburgh since the early sixteenth century, Veterinary Medicine only since the early nineteenth century.

We believe that two tickets per graduate is simply insufficent in recognising the conferment of a degree. We believe this fact is made more insulting by the moving of our ceremony to an inconvenient date and by the "special" ceremonies set aside for Law and Veterinary Medicine.

4. INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC OF SRPSKA

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, ARE IN SUPPORT OF A CALL FOR PLEBISCITE ON SEPARATION OF THE REPUBLIKA SRPSKA FROM BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA

We, the people of Republika Srpska, do have Christian way of life as the rest of the Europe and with such values we desire to join integration into European community.

Serbian people desire to bring into European community from our own perspective, respect for all with ingredients which will benefit man kind. We do not want to be any part of any integration which would create a melting pot whereby we would as a nation simply disappear. Present status fully warrants our concerns. To prevent this occurrence, it is necessary first to integrate our own, Serbian people, and than join the community.

People of Republika Srpska desire to egress from present union, which is forcefully created, against everyone's will.

Here are some reasons for definite desire to leave union of BH.
Totally opposite interpretation of resent war - friction.

With no respect for law, and with no legal ground Federation side has entered into lawsuit with neighbor Serbia, whereby they are in fact suing ourselves. All is done at their own initiative without any regard for our objections. It is simply job creation for themselves.

State symbols do not represent our way of life, our culture, our history, they simply, mean absolutely nothing to people of Republika Srpska. They are forced upon everyone living in Republika Srpska.

Centralizing government means all laws all taxes, all economic power will simply be in the hands of majority, which will do at will. Certainly not for benefit of Republika Srpska, since present and past had shown this track record.

Central power, will at will, as a majority, support Al Kaida basses as it has done in the past as well as present. Terrorism is not our way of life and newer has been. Terrorism will, as we all know destabilize region.

Centralizing power, from constitutive people will make us apsolute minority. On the same token in Kosovo from the minority, they are given nationality.

So far, union of BH has shown that no democratic economy can prosper. Present election as is and as it is controlled form outside, has show that no true representative of the people for the people is ever elected. This situation is placing people into position of absolute distrust with its so called leaders.

From above points, which are in brief, we believe that you can see clearly that peace in this region will not last for long, peace which you and us desire and respect so much. Therefore, we believe that you will respect and recommend fulfillment of basic human rights of Serbian people, and its desire for self determination, which is tide to its freedom and liberty.

We are informing you further of the fact that our organization "Serbian Peoples Movement - Choice is Ours" which is not associated with any government, have collected all ready over 40,000 (forty thousand) signatures. With this number of signature collected from citizens of Republika Srpska, in very short period of times, we have clearly indicated definite desire of Serbian people to leave union of BH. People have clearly understood that it can not and will not build its own future with antequated arabic sheriats law which is in place now here - but it has been banned in entire western civilization.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch
with our organization.

5. Moderation of Matt the Moderator

For the past month Matt has done a great job in Brischat contributing to clean up the community and introduce a healthy chat environment. However there have been several kickings in which decent and actively positive members of the Brischat community, have confronted Matt in a civil and respectful manner about why people have been kicked, and inturn kicked themselves without warning or reason.

There have also been times people have been booted just because of Matt’s pure annoyance. Matt has also used sarcasm on many an occasion which in turn alienates the positive members of the Brischat community, and turns them away from coming back. The point of this cleanup is to introduce a positive chat environment and clear up the mess so people can enjoy themselves.

This is a community chatroom, and matt does have a certain level of responsibility as a moderator to respect the wishes and good of the general community. Treat unto those as how you wish to be treated. Sign this petition if you have been booted for the above reasons, including Alias, Reason, or what you witnessed.

Please keep screenshots handy if such an incident occurs for evidence. Personal attacks and justified kicking comments will be deleted from this petition.

8. BE FAIR YAHOO!

I am Making this Petition due to unfairness of Yahoogroups. Yahoo does not Investigate complaints on groups or other users, they simply delete your Id's and Groups with no explination. Upon trying to get answers or help all you get is copy and pasted terms of Use junk.

I think we all know that stuff by now. This petition is to Request Yahoo reevaluate their policies and BE FAIR to both sides of a dispute, notify them or investigate claims first!!!

10. Bring Back Iron Mike

FELLOW LOYAL BEARS FANS:

IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 18 YEARS SINCE THE BEARS DOMINATED SUPERBOWL XX.

THE FOUNDATION BEGINS WITH THE HEAD COACH.

POSTSEASON APPEARANCES: DITKA (12) JAURON (01)

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD AND TELL THE MCCASKEYS ALONG WITH BEARS PRESIDENT AND CEO TED PHILLIPS AND BEARS GENERAL MANAGER JERRY ANGELO THAT WE DEMAND A CHAMPIONSHIP CALIBER TEAM! IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE COACH.

IT WAS THE YEAR OF:

* THE SUPER BOWL SHUFFLE.
* THE PUNKY QB KNOWN AS
MCMAHON
* WALTER "SWEETNESS" PAYTON
* WILLIAM "THE REFRIGERATOR"
PERRY AND THE REFRIGERETTES
* "SAMURAI" MIKE SINGLETARY

* BUDDY RYAN'S "46" DEFENSE WHICH INCLUDED: DAN HAMPTON, RICHARD "THE COLONEL" DENT, PERRY, STEVE "MONGO" MCMICHAEL, MIKE SINGLETARY, OTIS WILSON, WILBUR MARSHALL, DAVE DUERSON AND GARY FENCIK.

* REMEMBER WHEN THE ART INSTITUTE'S LIONS WORE THE
BEARS HELMETS?

* THE PICASSO SCULPTURE WEARING A BEARS HEADBAND?

* HOW ABOUT THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
PLAYING "BEAR DOWN, CHICAGO BEARS"?

BEFORE JORDAN RULED THIS CITY, IT WAS DA BEARS!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON?T REMEMBER, WE HAD A SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (SNL) SKIT BASED ON WHICH COACH DITKA BABY!

"I SAW QUARTERBACKS CRYING. I SAW RUNNING BACKS TREMBLING. I SAW LINEMEN WHO WANTED TO LEAVE. I COULD SEE IT IN THEIR EYES. WE HAD HIRED ASSASSINS ON THAT TEAM. I MEAN THEY COULD TAKE YOU OUT." MIKE SINGLETARY

"THEY WERE CHARACTERS ON THAT TEAM, BUT THEY HAD CHARACTER." - DITKA.

WHY THE TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE?
SIMPLY PUT - THEY WERE CHAMPIONS!!!!

STEVE MCMICHAEL PUT IT BEST: "PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT TEAM, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? IF WE HAD LOST, NOBODY WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED. WE BACKED IT UP. WE DON'T HAVE TO CLAIM FAME, BROTHER. WE ACHIEVED IT."

TALENTED FIRST ROUND PICKS INCLUDED: HAMPTON, AL HARRIS, OTIS WILSON, KEITH VAN HORNE, MCMAHON, JIMBO COVERT, WILLIE GAULT, AND WILBER MARSHALL.

WHAT GOT THEM TO BE CHAMPIONS WAS "ATTITUDE AND LOTS OF IT!"

AFTER BEING HIRED AS COACH, DITKA'S FIRST STATEMENT INCLUDED THAT HE WAS GOING TO TAKE THIS TEAM TO THE SUPER BOWL. NOT EVERYONE WOULD BE THERE, AND THOSE THAT DIDN'T WANT TO GET THERE SHOULD JUST LEAVE.

WHAT KIND OF PERSON MAKES STATEMENTS LIKE THESE?

HE IS ONE OF ONLY TWO MEN TO HAVE WON A SUPER BOWL AS A PLAYER, ASSISTANT COACH, AND HEAD COACH.

AS FOR THE CURRENT COACH JAURON, THIS IS NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK ON HIM. SIMPLY PUT, HE IS TOO MUCH OF A NICE GUY AND HIS OUTPUT IS UNACCEPTABLE! SIMPLY PUT - IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON!

IT DOES GET PERSONAL FOR EACH BEARS FAN THAT SPENDS HIS OR HER HARD-EARNED MONEY ON BEARS TICKETS OR MEMORABILIA FOR A NON-CONTENDER TEAM . WHAT ABOUT THE HUMILIATION WHEN OFFICE POOLS ROUTINELY PICK THE BEARS TO LOSE. THINGS MUST CHANGE!

AS THE VENERABLE DAN HAMPTON PUT IT: "WE MIGHT AS WELL TAKE A DAMN KNEE."

SO WHAT KIND OF COACH DO WE NEED?

SOMEONE LIKE IRON MIKE DITKA!!

MIKE LED BY HIS CODE WORD ACE: ATTITUDE, CHARACTER AND ENTHUSIASM.

NOTABLE QUOTES INCLUDED:

* "SUCCESS ISN'T MEASURED BY MONEY OR POWER OR
SOCIAL RANK. SUCCESS IS MEASURED BY YOUR DISCIPLINE
AND INNER PEACE."

* "ATTACK ALWAYS."

* "IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE PARADE, YOU WATCH THE PARADE.
THAT'S LIFE."

* "THE ONES WHO WANT TO ACHIEVE AND WIN
CHAMPIONSHIPS MOTIVATE THEMSELVES."

SO WOULD DITKA EVER RETURN TO THE BEARS (ASSUMING OF COURSE THAT MCCASKEY SWALLOWS HIS SELFISH PRIDE IN EXCHANGE FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM)?

IN A RECENT INTERVIEW, DITKA WAS QUOTED AS SAYING: "IF THE RIGHT OFFER HAPPENED, I WOULD TALK TO THEM. I DON'T GUARANTEE I WOULD DO IT, BUT I'D TALK TO THEM ABOUT WHAT I STOOD FOR AND WHAT I BELIEVED IN."

THE INTERVIEW ALSO INCLUDES HIS COMMENTS ON THE INFAMOUS TOSSING OF A WAD OF CHEWED GUM AT A GROUP OF HECKLERS. HIS QUOTE INCLUDES: "I'VE TAKEN CLASSES IN BEING ABLE TO THROW GUM STRAIGHTER AND HARDER, BECAUSE I WISH I WOULD HAVE HIT THE LADY OR THE MAN, WHOEVER IT WAS, RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES. AND I HOPE IT STUCK THERE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. AND THEN THEY'D KNOW, DON'T MESS AROUND WITH IRON MIKE."

A CLASSIC QUOTE BY THE CLASSIC FIT FOR OUR CITY!!

11. Abolish Jodie Foster from Google

Hi Jodie - I can call you Jodie, right? Seems appropriate under the circumstances.

Listen. I know we've been sparring for months now over the top Google spot when people search for Jodie, and for a while there, I was actually in the number one spot. You had it, then I had it, now you have it again.

Truthfully, compared to all your Oscars and mentions and how famous you are, I'm really just a regular gal sitting here blogging about my mundane life. While I have been mentioned in various little magazines, been on dozens of national and regional radio shows, in the paper and even interviewed on one TV show (albeit via netcam), my notoriety simply cannot hold a candle to yours.

You get to go home and snuggle up with all those awards and the like - could I ask a favour? Could I just have Google? Just this one little thing... I would really appreciate it. You understand, I'm sure - always with the "No, it's: Jay. Oh. Dee. Eye. EEEEEEEEEEEEE. There is an 'e' on the end. An E." Our name is special, isn't it?

Ever yours in final 'e' solidarity,

Jodie.
