2. Create Jobs for Felons

We the People all know someone who has been affected by the penal system. These individuals are in a vicious cycle of becoming repeat offenders, in violation of probation due to lack of finding employment.

I petition that the Center 4 Change start the program ROC (Rebuilding our Communities). This program will not only benefit society as a whole, but also truly transition these men and women back into society, as success stories.

This program will provide hundreds and thousands of jobs across the United States of America and not just for felons, and give back to the communities impacted by foreclosed properties, small businesses and the US as a whole.

4. Keep our Greenbelt

KEEP THE RED - GREEN. SEE THE PICTURE.

There is a beautiful greenbelt that runs through Lang Ranch and in 1992 it was dedicated to all the residence of Thousand Oaks as a restricted use easement with the right to prohibit construction.

For 17 years residence have enjoyed hiking along this naturally set hillside.

Case # 2009-70359 will allow an individual homeowner to build on this land for personal use. There is no upside for the taxpayers to allow this.

If this individual is allowed to do this it will open the floodgates for other homeowners to do the same.

With this petition we are letting the City of Thousand Oaks know that approving this case would be detrimental to public interest and would be a violation of the City of Thousand Oaks's fiduciary obligations.

6. Demand Those Responsible Pay Back The Missing Education Dollars

ADLER - AUDITOR'S FINDINGS IN WILLINGBORO MERITS CRIMINAL PROBE

Audit: Willingboro school officials faked financial reports in 2005.

TRENTON - Senator John H. Adler today asked State Attorney General Stuart Rabner to launch a criminal probe to punish those responsible for misappropriating millions of taxpayer dollars in the Willingboro Township School District.

"As we tell our children, there have to be consequences for wrongdoing," said Senator Adler, D-Cherry Hill. "Taxpayers need to know we will dig down to the root causes of wrongdoing and punish those responsible."

In a report by State Auditor Richard L. Fair, it was disclosed that Willingboro officials approved a grossly under-funded budget for the 2005 fiscal year and then falsified reports to cover up the shortfall, causing a crisis which was abated only after the Legislature sanctioned a $10 million bailout loan.

"It is unconscionable that New Jersey taxpayers should be asked to tolerate and to subsidize what very well may be criminal behavior," Senator Adler said in a letter today sent to Attorney General Stuart Rabner. "As a taxpayer, I am appalled. As a State Senator, I appeal to you for a corrective remedy."

The Auditor's report noted that the Willingboro School Board said its vote to approve the budget was based on "falsified" information supplied by district staff. In July of 2005, the board suspended School Superintendent Alonzo Kittrels.

In the wake of a school district deficit set at $5.9 million, three Willingboro schools were shuttered in the district of 5,600 students.

The State audit found that the district's 2005 budget set aside $13.6 million for teachers' salaries when the actual cost was $17.7 million and that a monthly report on the district's financial activity consistently understated expenses.

"Children should see that grownups who abuse taxpayers are held accountable," Senator Adler said. "Otherwise, we're all complicit."

Senator Adler served as co-chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on Public School Funding Reform which recommended tighter fiscal accountability procedures for districts throughout New Jersey.

7. Mad as hell at financial companies who choose to benefit from the Great Bailout!

Are you mad as hell at financial companies who choose to benefit from the Great Bailout? Are you going to take this anymore?

These financial companies in and outside the U.S. will steal massive wealth from U.S. taxpayers to give to their foreign and U.S. investors, and to their foreign and U.S. management and employees.

Yelling together, we should be able to stop the ill-considered passage of the Great Bailout, and gain the opportunity to quickly implement a better solution.

Note: The "Great Bailout" refers to the Paulson/Bernanke/Bush (Paulnankebush) sponsored bailout proposal (including any tweaks made to it by Congress) that fundamentally transfers massive wealth from U.S. taxpayers to foreign and U.S. investors in, and foreign and U.S. management and employees of, financial companies in and outside the U.S. It does not refer to fundamentally different solutions, such as those discussed on http://AmericaIs.OurCreation.info .

10. GPS for Sexual Offenders

July 17, 2006

We the undersigned propose that after a Sexual Offender has finished his or her punishment, the offender should have to wear the Global Positioning Satellite - hereinafter referred to as GPS - for the purpose of knowledge of the offender's whereabouts at all times.

To pay for such an incumberence to taxpayers, we the undersigned propose that the Offender work in an assigned job such as those that many Americans find "undesirable." Maybe even those that illegal immigrants are doing.

This may even help the immigration issue.

13. No Respect, No Relationship

PETITION TO THE HONOURABLE THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ASSEMBLED IN PARLIAMENT:

This petition of certain citizens of Australia condemns the Howard Government for refusing to run the anti-violence campaign "No Respect No Relationship" that was designed to educate young people that violence in relationships is wrong and must be stopped.

Your petitioners ask the House to ensure that the Government releases the campaign material that was developed over the last 2 years at a cost of millions of dollars to taxpayers so that it can be used by others in
the community to send a strong message to young people.

Public money paid for the development and production of this campaign and we urge the House to demand its release for public use.

14. Remove Hendry County School Bus Driver

We, the taxpayers of Hendry County, hereby, request that Ms. Denise Brookins be removed as a School Bus Driver with the Hendry County School System. Ms. Brookins in the past 2 months has left a 9 year old child on the bus from 6:30am till 1:30pm. Ms. Brookins has allowed a student to get off at the wrong bus stop to beat up a child. She claims that the child snuck by her. She then asked the kids still on bus what was going on and they told her and she made no attempt to correct her mistake by returning to the bus stop and picking up the child. The students have said during last year that Ms. Brookins, when the students get unrurly on the bus, she just slams on the brakes and almost got hit 3 times last year by a Semi-Rig.

We the taxpayers believe that Ms. Brookins is going through burnout and needs to be removed before she seriously causes one of our children to be tragically injured.
