Ban cat declawing in the state of Colorado
In the state of Colorado it is legal to declaw your cat. Not only is this inhumane, but it is very harmful to the health of your cat. Essentially, you are cutting the top knuckle off of your cats paw. People often mistakenly believe that declawing your cat will stop them from scratching, but in reality all you're doing is making it less likely that your cat will use the litter box and more likely to start biting instead of scratching. The method of removing the claw is quite horrifying. To do this, they amputate with a scalpel or with guillotine clippers, then the wounds are closed with stitches or surgical glue, and then the feet are bandaged. There are many drawbacks to declawing your cat as well, such as: pain in the paw, infection, tissue necrosis (tissue death), lameness, and back pain. When you remove your cats claws it changes the way their feet touch the ground, feeling like the equivalent of wearing an uncomfortable set of shoes. So please, let's put a stop to this!
Removing Tomi Lahren From TheBlaze
Everyone has a voice and an opinion. However, when the wrong voice is given a platform and is allowed to influence an audience of millions by perpetuating derogatory ideology toward select groups of individuals, this is where the injustice lies. Tomi Lahren (although her words are laden with passion and emotion) lacks the knowledge and experience to effectively communicate and facilitate. As a millennial in these "progressive" times, Tomi Lahren should be allowing safe spaces for all audiences. Instead, she attacks minority groups, fabricates historical "facts", and is grossly misinformed on political topics. Being a millennial, she has been given the opportunity to be a positive and influential voice of our generation yet she instead chooses the path of least resistance and becomes a carbon copy of the Fox network. Should a biased, misinformed, 23-year-old with no background in law, law degree, life experience, or experience in Government be the political voice of a generation that will change this nation? So the purpose of this petition is to let Fox News know that our generation will no longer allow an individual to use their platform for nefarious purposes. Tom Lahren's hate speech against minority groups will no longer be tolerated. She will learn that although we have freedom of speech, there is no freedom from consequences. This may not solve the main issue; however, great things have small beginnings. I know that this petition will be the ember that ignites change so that one day we demand that our media and news outlets will value integrity. *UPDATE* 7-9-2016 Let me clarify my petition because there are people who are still clearly unware of the multiple purposes. I am aware that TheBlaze is an independent from Fox.. However.. You CANNOT deny Tomi has an affiliation with Fox/ CNN considering her relationship with Glenn Beck and her frequent appearances on Fox news. The purpose of this petition is to not only show the complete disgust that the public has with Tomi Lahren, but to also demand INTEGRITY from all of our news and media outlets... It is apparent that she is trying to get a position with a major news outlet with her radical and racist views. We are letting Fox, CNN, etc know that where ever she may end up WE WILL NOT STAND FOR THAT EITHER.

FOX News remove Megyn Kelly
Megyn Kelly is a news person with an agenda. Instead of reporting the news, she attempts to distort and manipulate facts to support her own agenda. Her latest victim is Donald Trump. A news source should not be trying to influence the American Voter. FOX professes to be fair and balance but Kelly loads her panels with those that support her views. This has become a typical FOX News ploy during these elections. Kelly needs to be removed from her position until she has learned the mantra "The facts, ma'am, just the facts."

Protest Fox News' airing of racist anti-Asian Watters' World: Chinatown segment
On Monday, October 3, 2016, Fox News' 'O'Reilly Factor' aired the 5-minute Watters' World: Chinatown video segment featuring correspondent Jesse Watters. The segment has been widely criticized as appallingly anti-Asian and racist. The video contained a flurry of anti-Asian stereotypes, and showed Watters accosting Chinatown residents -- including many English-language limited speakers -- to mock them as foreign, bizarre, and ignorant. After the man-on-the-street portion, Watters and O'Reilly perpetuated Model Minority stereotypes to conclude that the video was "in gentle fun." There is no humor in unabashed racism. The Asian American Journalists' Association said the segment is "rife with stereotypes." APIAVote calls the segment "racist and derogatory." The National Council for Asian Pacific Americans said, "no person should be used as a prop in such a heartless manner." "The segment does nothing more than play up every offensive stereotype of Asian Americans that the community has fought against for decades," said Asian Americans Advancing Justice. Several elected officials including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, Senator Daniel Squadron, Congresswoman Grace Meng, Assemblymember Ron Kim, and NYC City Council Member Margaret Chin have also spoken out against the segment. ***This petition calls on Fox News to:1. Issue an immediate apology and retraction for the Watters' World: Chinatown segment. 2. Cancel "Watters' World" segments and/or scheduled specials from future broadcast. 3. Agree to a meeting between representatives of the Asian American community and Fox News executives, 'O'Reilly Factor' producers, 'O'Reilly Factor' host Bill O'Reilly and correspondent Jesse Watters to discuss the impact of on-air racism on viewers, as well as to consider next steps to address this issue as well as the broader underrepresentation and misrepresentation of the Asian American community at Fox News. This meeting must take place within 90 days of the segment's original air date (October 3, 2016).
Protect Immigrant Physicians From Executive Order, Protect Patients From Losing Doctors
Dear Madam, Dear Sir, On January 27th 2017, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order (EO) which implemented a 90-day suspension of visas and other immigration benefits to all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia. Legal experts believe this suspension may be extended indefinitely. We have learned that there is a tremendous amount of confusion regarding the implementation of this order. The latest information we have obtained reveals that the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has put a hold on all visa extensions and immigration benefits (including adjustment of status and employment authorization) for citizens from the above-mentioned countries who are inside the United States. We have been notified about cases involving physicians and their families who left the United States for a short vacation or a humanitarian mission and were not allowed back into the United States. The unrealistic conditions required in the EO for discontinuing the suspension make it very likely that this EO will turn into a permanent ban. We, physicians and healthcare providers of various nationalities practicing medicine in the United States in a variety of different fields, are directly impacted by these decisions and we would like to voice our deepest concerns and strongest opposition to this measure, as it directly affects patient care as much as it affects us. This EO will result in a lot of hard-working, compassionate physicians who go above and beyond in patient care not being able to have their legal status extended, not being able to continue practicing medicine, not being able to serve their patients and communities because their work authorizations will not be renewed, and not being able to see their families abroad for years. As it is, many physicians have not seen their families in several years due to the unfortunate and tumultuous events in their home countries. Many International Medical Graduates (IMGs) who are in search for residency training positions will also be blocked from matching to a residency spot, and many medical researchers will not be able to continue contributing to science and development. These bans have highly negative consequences. The unethical and discriminatory treatment of law-abiding, hard-working, and well-integrated immigrant physicians fundamentally contravenes the founding principles of the United States. The long term effect of this EO will result in a decline in the number of practicing healthcare providers in USA causing abrupt cessation of patient care, which will affect patient safety and work flow in vast institution throughout the country. We appreciate all the supporting statements issued by multiple medical organizations including the statement by the American College of Physicians on Jan 31st, 2017. We find it a source of relief knowing that our medical society realizes how important immigrant physicians are to the American communities. However, we would like to respectfully ask for more. We would like for all possible legal action to be taken to make sure that physicians will not be forced out of the country and out of practice. We also need a strong push towards allowing physicians from the above-mentioned countries to enter the United States. We strongly urge the use of all possible legal power to have this Executive Order rescinded due to its tremendously negative impact on physicians, their families, and on patient care.
Third Party Debates 2016
Step # 1 - Unite as many Americans who pledge to vote third party as possible on this page (send the world a strong message that we mean business about finding a better candidate than Trump or Clinton). Step # 2 - Demand at least one debate between candidates that the majority of Americans do not actually dislike or distrust, namely Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, Darrell Castle, Evan McMullin, and any other candidate that starts gaining traction. Step # 3 - Vote our conscience and make the best candidate the next president of the United States.
The ending of The Yulin Dog Festival
This is so pressing we can not stop now. There is a dog meat festival in Yulin, China that last for 10 days. Where they brutally torture dogs before they consume them for meals. The forms of torture include boiling them alive, beating them to death, starvation and dehydration, and keeping them in very small cages with over 10 dogs in one. We would like to stop this festival because it is inhuman to commit this kind of act to a poor innocent dog.
