1. Ban the Wearing Of The Burka In Public In The UK

An MP has called the wearing of burkas the religious equivalent of “going round with a paper bag over your head."

In a parliamentary debate, Conservative MP Philip Hollobone said it was “offensive” for women to cut off face-to-face contact with other people. The Kettering MP said he had “huge sympathy” with those who wanted a ban on face-covering veils in public. None of the three large UK parties back a ban, with ministers saying it would not be “British” to bar them.

I thought I would invite readers to petition on the matter because I believe that the majority in the UK do not approve wearing of burkas on this basis plus the fact that it has no relevance or place in British Society and demonstrates a disregard for Britishness and the British way of life, and, furthermore, a refusal to integrate and follow customs of this land.

2. Employee Dress Code at Peppers Beef and Seafood

Peppers Beef and Seafood has a very comfortable atmosphere. Our customers come here for the great food, friendly service and over-all enjoyment.

By asking many of our regular customers how they feel about the uniform change, some have no opinion.

However, most have stated that having such a professional look for the employees will bring the comfortable atmosphere that most come here for.

3. Stop Wearing Fur

Fur was hugely popular in the '70s and '80s, but it's back in a big way among the 18-25 year-old crowd. So you're probably not suprised that Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie, Kimberly Stewart, Jenifer lopez, Lisa Gastineau, Hilary Duff, Victoria Gotti, Tara Reid and Paris Hilton have picked up on the fur trend! Each year, more than 40 million animals are killed for their fur.

Fur-bearing animals include foxes, minks, rabbits, beavers and raccoons. To kill animals without damaging their fur, trappers will strangle, beat, or stomp them to death. Animals on fur farms are gassed, poisoned, electrocuted, or have their necks snapped. Ranch-raised animals live in cages about 2 feet square, with up to four animals per cage. There is no federal law that regulates the killing of animals raised for fur.

It can take up to 40 animals to make one fur coat.

4. Resolve New Houseman Uniform Conflict

The new mandatory uniform for the Housekeeping- Houseman, has been a "thorn in the side" of each of the following mentioned houseman from the day it was implemented.

We have recieved random insults from fellow employees and some laughs from department managers, and feel completely uncomfortable wearing this uniform.

The insults, snickering, and the feeling of inequality to other employees (due to the new uniform), has risen to the point where many houseman are becoming stressed and embarrassed while working on the job.

In addition, the design of the t-shirt resembles that of the female housekeepers and doesn't represent the Housekeeping department in a flattering or respectiful mannar. We were not given a fair choice for this new uniform and feel it would be unjust to leave this issue unresolved.

7. Save Wisconsin Cats from Hunters

On April 11, 2005, the Wisconsin Conservation Congress had their annual spring meeting. One of the issues addressed was whether or not to adopt a law to make feral and domestic cats an "unprotected species" meaning that cats could be shot on sight if they were not wearing a collar. As anyone knows, a collar on your cat will NOT prevent someone from shooting it if they want to. They will merely destroy the collar after they have killed the cat.

The meetings were primarily attended by hunters and, thus, those FOR the proposition exceeded those of us against it.

The meeting of April 11th did not reflect the opinions of the majority of Wisconsin taxpayers as the majority of the persons attending the meetings were hunters, not the average citizen.

We are opposed to a law making feral and domestic cats an "unprotected species" as this will not only endanger our pets, it will also make it legal for people to do anything they want to these defenseless animals.

We need to let the Governor and our legislators know that the Conservation Congress does NOT speak for the majority of the citizens of this State. We cannot allow the hunters here to make our laws.

8. Disagreeing With New Dress Code of the Anaheim Union High School District

As a resident in Southern California, sandles have been a part of every day life since I was a young child and now they are trying to take that away. Sandles are a convenient way for comfortablity and style. They allow our feet to "breathe" and in several other ways keep us comfortable. But, now because of our schools new renovations, our administration feels the need to take away that comfortability for safety.

Safety is a big issue in society today and from our prinicipals point of view, she wants to make her students as safe as they can be, this is understandable. However, if she wants us to be safe, cut down the fighting or lock our campus up, but do not take away the students personal expression and comfortability. It is understood that with the construction taking place on our campus, sandles may be a safety hazard. But, we are not walking around over open trenches or boxes of nails, all the dangerous places are blocked off by fences or caution tape. Another problem the principal sees with sandles are the opened toes, causing toes to be stepped on or stubbed. But, people see these problems before they leave the house wearing sandles, they know of the risks they are taking.

Football players are constantly breaking bones, spraining ankles, or physically injuring theirselves in other ways but, do we see the principal taking away their ability to tackle and play the sport they love? No, we do not, so why should the students of Kennedy High school have to stop wearing the shoes they feel comfortable in, due to a few minor injuries? We allow athletes to play the sports they play with the knowledge that they may be hurt, but we do not allow students to wear sandles because of a safety issue, it is very hypocritical.

The fact of the matter is that we as people are going to get hurt no matter what way or where, it is going to happen, its just a factor of life. But, do we see kids walking around with helmets and safety pads everywhere they go? No, because we cannot constantly be afraid of being injured or unsafe, we have to live life and roll with the punches.

9. Down with the SchoolDresscode in all Schools.

For numerous years some of my friends, classified as "Goths", would wear some really cool things. But then the school would make a new dresscode rule preventing this wearing. They say that it distracts other students from their work. We have school petitions all the time and almost everyone in school signs it. So how could it distract students if they sign a petition to be able to wear it? I think that the school is being harsh and to that i say, Down with the Dresscode.
