Sack Yassmin Abdel-Magied for mocking our Anzacs

Yassmin has shown us her true colours. And we know she loves to dress brightly, to stand out, like any true narcissist. But her political true colours, they are exposed: there is no special place in her heart for Anzac Day, for our Diggers. For her, their sacrifice is an opportunity for her to bleat about her pet political causes. On this day most Australians think about sacrifice, bravery and mateship. Clearly, she thinks about none of that. And in so doing she shows us who she is -- but more importantly, what she's not: an Australian. The Australian tax payer is no longer willing to foot her bill.  So, Yassmin: bye bye. You can piss off now. Move to Manus or Nauru or Syria or non-existent Palestine. You're not welcome here.

Retract Cruel Rabbit Video & Promote Responsible Rabbit Care

What kind of message is Nat Geo showing their viewers?  There is nothing cute about this video and it is not an adorable game of hide and seek. In our opinion, sadly many rabbits will suffer and die because of this misleading message being promoted. What the story failed to mention is that setting domestic rabbits loose is a Death Sentence, and encouraging a predator to hunt and chase a prey animal is Cruel, Inhumane and Terrorizing.  A knowledgeable bunny person would know that Petey's posture in the video tells he is defending his claimed territory and his life while displaying excitement and agitation.   Some rabbits are more territorial than others, but many rabbits will be very angry if you reach into their homes.  If you do so, anticipate getting charged at, pounded hard with pointy-tipped paws, and even bitten.  It is stated the rabbit has bitten Ellie and shown Ellie's mouth grabbing the rabbit.  Ellie and Petey's videos are posted on Youtube, one especially appalling and cruel video named "Ellie enlists Charlie to help take on Petey".  Here people "Laugh" while Two dogs team up barking and chasing Petey, a prey animal who is running Terrified for his life. According to this article The family set rabbits loose on their farm while stating they had concerns the dog would hurt them; that the biggest threat to the dog and rabbits friendship was when Petey chose another rabbit, Darla, as his mate.  Darla and Petey had babies, then the article mentioned that Darla died. The article goes on to state that they thought Petey had died from dehydration once and they do not expect him to live much longer and hopes one of the baby rabbits will take his place with Ellie.  Is this entire rabbit family being hunted and chased in fear for their lives for human amusement?   How did Darla die, are any of her babies still alive?  Although there can be friendships between dogs and domestic rabbits, this happens under close supervision.  With many dogs, the hunting instinct is buried deep below generations of domestication.  After being harassed by a playful dog  a rabbit can go into a terminal state of shock and symptoms may not show up for several hours, and by then it may be too late.   Rabbits also have small, fragile bones and can be severely injured by unintentional mishandling and have been known to break their backs struggling to escape predators or inexperienced caretakers. It is nothing short of a Miracle that Petey survived this type of cruelty. Reports of stray rabbits are increasing and the stories are horrifying.In reality, a prey animal such as a helpless domestic rabbit lacks the wild instincts of their cousins and become sitting targets when "set free" or allowed to "free roam" in a family yard where predators may have no fear of humans when hungry. There are many dangers for domestic rabbits outdoors, disease, toxins, pests, human predators and weather. If stray rabbits live long enough to breed many of the babies are killed or eaten alive and for the one's that survive, the cruel cycle continues.  If the rabbits populate and become a nuisance they are then poisoned or otherwise killed by humans. Nat Geo Wild’s David Mizejewski makes monthly appearances on various TV shows and has participated as a wildlife expert in press events, is a media personality, author, blogger and a naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation, however, he seems to have no education on domestic rabbit care and is teaching a cruel and inhumane practice to the entire world. National Geographic claims to be one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world. The Rabbit Community is outraged at the thought that others will imitate this irresponsible practice of setting their domestic rabbits loose.  We the Petitioners respectfully request a retraction of this program.  We further request that they contact the President of the House Rabbit Society to offer education on proper care of domesticated rabbits.  It is especially important at this time when so many people are being misled to buy live Easter Bunnies for their children. We also hope the family will educate themselves on proper care for their rabbits and provide them with a safe living area and necessities; instead of believing prey animals are playing, being cute or entertaining when being terrorized by a predator.

To keep last man standing on the TV.

My problem is one of my favoriate TV show is being canceled because of conservative views. It's not fair that we have to have liberal and progressive views shoved in our face and except it but we can't have our shows it's not right. I understand being tolerant but when you stop a show because of the views it shares is not right. Let's save this show!!!!

Seven West media and Daily Mail, stop presenting Mr Mohammed Tawhidi as a Muslim leader

The “Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege” published recently, had many purposes.[1] This document is a testament to the lives of innocent victims lost at the hands of a criminal and the questionable police response.[2] This essay does not wish to exasperate the real and continued suffering of the families and loved one of the victims by discussing their experience here. The author wishes only to note her empathy and solidarity with the families and loved ones of victims. However, a second aspect of the inquest was to investigate the life of the criminal perpetrator Man Haron Monis.[3] Much of this investigation sought to establish if Monis was in fact mentally ill before or during the siege. The inquest report found that Monis was not psychotic and was without a mental illness, rather he exhibited narcissistic behaviour and possibly a personality disorder.[4] The telling findings were that Monis’ “narcissism meant he could become dangerous if his self-image was threatened.”[5] The inquest also found that Monis had a long of history of publicly establishing this dangerous self-image. This included courting the media while depicting himself as a self-declared Islamic cleric. In this guise, he not only sent abusive letters to the families of service men killed in action, he also established a spiritual healing practice that he used as a front to cover his acts of criminal sexual assault.[6] At no point, did any religious, political or civic institution recognise Monis to be a cleric of any type. He had received some theological education, but this was far from enough to allow him to position himself as a cleric or religious leader of any kind.[7] Sadly for individuals who did put their faith in him, many became victims of his criminal perversion.[8] Eventually, starved of followers and media attention (due to court orders preventing his offensive letters being sent), Monis abandoned his robes and self-declared religiosity in public and moved on to other narcissistic fantasies. Yet today in Australia, beside this narrative of a deluded man misusing religion for the purpose of self-aggrandising, we have a second man dressed in religious robes and appealing to the media with radical and offensive claims and behaviour. The name of this second man is Mohammed Tawhidi. There is now ample evidence to show that Tawhidi is a fraud and has little theological training or (thankfully) following that would allow him to claim himself to be an Islamic cleric.[9] Where Monis chose to attack the families of service-people killed in action (not a popular choice), Tawhidi is establishing himself as a divisive Islamophobe.[10] This sadly popular form of xenophobia has seen him achieve more air time than many Australian senators and MPs. In fact, the style of offence he is propagating is so news worthy for tabloid outlets, that they are now creating the stories by taking Tawhidi to places in Sydney with a high Muslim population specifically to create social upheaval and distress.[11] Mr Tawhidi doesn’t need to chain himself to public buildings or go on hunger strikes in order to gain media notoriety it seems (unlike Monis).[12] The Lindt Siege Inquest found that fraudulent people whose existence is fixated on hate and xenophobia can have some very real and disastrous consequences for wonderful and innocent citizens.[13] We, the citizens of Australia and the signatories to this petition, do not wish to see the narcissistic delusions of a false man dressed as a religious leader, influence the lives of others ever again in this nation. As such, we call on free to air media channels to desist from giving this man air time under the guise of an Islamic religious representative. He represents no one except himself. He may speak to the media under his own capacity or through his social media profile as may any of us. But we do not wish to see this man presented as a religious leader who represents the approximate 500 000 Muslim Australians that make up part of our multicultural and multi-faith nation. We do not wish to see the media build an untruthful self-image for another narcissistic self-declared cleric. We do not want to see the ‘fall out’ when that self-image is inevitably destroyed in the face of reality. We, the citizens of Australia, as informed by the findings of the Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, petition all media outlets – but particularly Seven West media and The Daily Mail, in all forms, to stop presenting Mr Mohammed Tawhidi as a Muslim leader or representative of any kind – as there is ample evidence he is nothing of the sort.[14] We petition for this as we, the citizens of this nation, will not be made complicit in enhancing the delusions of xenophobes or attention craving people who seek to undermine our multicultural peace.   [1] State Coroner of New South Wales, Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 4 – [accessed 15/6/17][2] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 42.[3] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 11.[4] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 69.[5] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 72.[6] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 65.[7] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 57.[8] Inquest into the deaths arising from the Lindt Café siege, May 2017, page 65.[9] Chloe Patton, “Welcome to the Weird World of Australia's 'Fake Sheikh', Mohammad Tawhidi,” ABC Religion and Ethics, 11 Apr 2017.

Bring Back Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing was the network's second-highest comedy this season and averaged 8.1 million viewers, just behind "Modern Family," which averaged 8.7 million viewers this season and was recently renewed for two more seasons. ABC NEEDS to remove themselves from politics and give this show back to the people who love it. A boycott of all programming until this matter is resolved would send a clear message to ABC and it's associates.

Captain Swan Special (OUAT)

On October 13th 2017 we found out, in the episode 7x02 aired on Abc - where Jennifer Morrison appeared for her last time - how our beloved Emma Swan and Captain Hook (Killian Jones) had their "happily ever after", with a future baby on their way.But the truth is, a lot of fans were really disappointed about the few scenes of them together and, most of all, about the quick way they left us, through a magical portal that brought them back to Storybooke.They have been the main characters for 5 years now, one of the main reasons why many people watched the show, and so we think that dedicating a final episode to them was the right thing to do. We didn't get to see Emma revealing Killian about the pregnancy, and now we'd have hope of seeing the birth of the baby and any cute family moments.So, why this petition? The reason is very simple: we'd love so much to see more about these two wonderful characters, about their love story and their life together with their child\children. A special episode would be the best gift that we fans could receive.Of course, this is just a suggestion that doesn't demand any commitments from the actors: only if they want and can join the project, according to their schedule, it could actually be put in place. Thanks for your attention. The Captain Swan fandom. ✔ Update: Both Colin and Jennifer said to the last OUAT Burbank Con that they'd be in for a Captain Swan movie! So we need it now even more!!!

Bring Bex Back

They have taken a much beloved character away from us without even given her the opportunity to stay on. Bex loves this show more than anything and has done nothing but support us and it throughout. It's time to make a change and bring her back. I will not stand and let her go down without even have the option to sign for another season.

Make it illegal to hit a cat with your vehicle including the failure to help and report it

I believe animals have the right to be here, just as we do. I believe one individuals life shouldn't be over looked by their face value. This conveys to me that if dogs deserve a law that makes it illegal to hit and not help and report the accident in 24hours - which is vital to the animals survival, so should our cats. I believe cats, who are mans best friends as well as dogs, but also mothers most cherished baby, a bundle of joy after a long day and finally, to me my cat is part of me. I am terrified his life could be taken away just because he isn't valued enough to be considered worth losing. So, I am writing to you to ask for your support in making a small change in comparison to animals rights, but a huge difference to hundreds of thousands of nurtured and loved cats, including mine - Colin. And this is for all the cats we have lost in the past due to hit and runs: Monty, Frankie, Sebestian, Kitcat, Colin-black, Arthur. I just pray to god that no more have to leave this earth due to something we could help stop.   Please help make a change.   Thank you.   Zoe Lloyd
