Stop the removal of historical Confederate Monuments.
These monuments are a reminder of what our country had to go through to become whole again. Many of these monuments are not only in dedication to the men who served in the Confederacy but they also served in the US army pre-civil war. It is important to save these monuments for future generations to see these monuments and learn about them and the men who gave everything for a several causes. These were brave men, good men and religious men. I beg the President, Vice President and the US Supreme Court to stop the purge of our American History in our cities and towns across the south. I urge President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and the U.S. Supreme Court to sign a bill into law protecting these monuments, all military monuments from removal. Please save our history.
Justice for Jeffrey U.S. Embassy needs to intervene!!
On Monday April 23rd at approximately 2am, Jeffrey Alexander Tavarez was brutally murdered in cold blood as he arrived to his home. He was an American who moved to the Dominican Republic after falling in love and fathering a child with Dauriza Daniela Burgos. He had received a very large lawsuit settlement in NY, 2 months prior to his death. On said night, his life partner Daniela paid and arranged for several hitman to wait outside their home so they can gun down her son’s father in cold blood. Her brother has also been implicated as a coconspirator in this heinous crime. The motive to her betrayal was to gain full control of the lawsuit money. Moments after Jeffreys death Daniela claimed she knew nothing of his belongings nor where his passport stood. She later changed her story and escorted the police to a pawn shop to retrieve Jeffrey’s jewelry and stated his passport was in a safe box and turned it to the police. The Dominican Republic is a corrupt island and jurisdiction can be easily influenced by the wrong people.Jeffrey’s family is seeking justice!!! Unfortunately, we can’t trust the jurisdiction of Dominican Republic to handle this case alone and we are desperately seeking help from the U.S. We need the Embassy, specifically Steve A. Linick, the Inspector General of the U.S. Government, to get involved and for these criminals to get prosecuted to the full extent of the law, for this brutal murder. We sometimes seek happiness outside the US whether to live, retire, or simply vacation. When our loved one looses their lives especially as tragically as Jeffrey lost his shouldn’t the U.S. help us fight for justice? Please intervene and enforce with greater power. Please sign as your signature is a another voice heard.
Restaurants must disclose the 8 largest food allergens on all menu items.
My name is Erin Conroy and I am writing to you today as a concerned mother and member of society. I consider myself a part of the silent majority as I rarely bring my personal concerns to our government, except by way of my voting preferences. However, on this particular issue I can no longer keep silent. The topic of my concern is food allergies, and the risk that sufferers are exposed to daily. My daughter has suffered with allergies since birth, so I have been passionate about the subject for the better part of two years. That passion grew into a necessity of action on May 8th of this year when a young woman named Rachel Hunger died after experiencing anaphylaxis. Rachel was a beautiful woman who showed immense promise. She taught at my daughter’s daycare, and I can honestly say that all of the children there loved her. Tragically, her life was cut way too short over something that could easily have been avoided. Rachel knew of her peanut allergy, and therefore knew to be careful about what she ate. Unfortunately, that conscientiousness didn’t help her. It didn’t help her because she was exposed to the allergen without knowing that it was in her food. You see, the restaurant she was establishing, although listed some allergens on their menu, didn’t list one of the ingredients – a peanut paste – in the item that she consumed. Therefore, Rachel thought she was safe to eat it. Sadly, she was wrong. This heartbreaking event could have been prevented though, and this life lost saved, if only restaurants were mandated to disclose allergens on every item on their menu. It is unreasonable to request that every single allergen be listed, I know. However, is it too much to ask that the top eight be reported? We are already demanding companies to list these eight allergens on food that is sold in stores; is it too unrealistic to request that those same eight allergens be disclosed on every menu throughout this great nation? Laws similar to this idea were already implemented in parts of the European Union. Certain countries, such as Spain, use identifiers from a legend on their menu to indicate allergens in each dish. As you can imagine, it would take little effort to add identifiers to menus here in the United States. The Food Allergy Research & Education website states that researchers estimate that 32 million Americans suffer from food allergies, and that every year emergency medical care is required for 200,000 people. Also shockingly, the “Centers for Disease Control & Prevention reports that the prevalence of [a] food allergy in children increased by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011 (FARE website, May 13, 2019).” I believe you would agree that these statistics confirm that this is a large percentage of our population. Considering the continued increase of sufferers, wouldn’t it make sense to make the change now? Please consider signing this petition in hopes that a light will be shown on the severity of the subject. One death is too many - especially when there is such a simple solution.
State Governors: Join Alliance of many US states to work with Paris Climate Accord.
Trump broke the US' commitment to the 190+ nations in the Paris Climate Accord to work to prevent global warming ... so Washington, California, New York formed a Climate Alliance to meet the climate goals laid out in the agreement. Many other states have now joined them. Why don't you? Ask all states' governors to join The Climate Alliance. Yours is not yet a Climate Alliance state? Persuade its lawmakers to make it one. Contact all state governors by signing this petition. Contact your state's federal level lawmakers here state level lawmakers here governor here Trump seems ill-informed and juvenile but posting comments about him achieves little. The actions above address the climate issue directly. Circumvent Trump's action. Please sign this and repost it on social networks. Thank you. Extra! The EU has decided to bypass the Trump Administration with regard to this... Click here for The Guardian's report.
End daylight savings time
End daylight savings time (DST) - What more can I say! Numerous articles for and against ending this outdated practice have been written. The vast majority of articles share the positive reasons to abolish DST; reasons include decreased confusion, health benefits, etc. A very few articles share why DST should be kept; all of the reasons I have seen are based on certain industries wanting to keep/enjoy extra money they get from DST practices (evening summer BBQ's, purchase of more convenience store items, etc.). Please read up if you have questions. There are ZERO compelling reasons to keep DST! States can individually change (like Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and others have done) but it makes it difficult for that state. This should be done across the U.S. I would much rather set conference appointments and travel without first checking local time of my intended destination. Less sleep disruption in the spring and fall would also be great! If anyone knows a better way to get this in the national spotlight please share. I'm 55 years old and it has bugged me my whole life. Let's do this!
Prison isn't a drug rehab, heroin is in prisons
This petition is to make awareness to the fact that there are street drugs in our prisons. Heroin is in our prisons. Any street drug is in our prisons, so putting people to prison if they are drug addicts is no solution to their drug problem. Please make better solutions for drug addicts than putting them to prison. They can still use drugs in prisons and overdose in prison. Drug treatment is also not a solution in prison when there is straight access to drugs in prison.
HELP PROTECT THE WOLF AND OTHER BEINGS FROM EXTERMINATION! JOIN THE FIGHT FOR THEIR LIVES!
A new threat to thousands of wolves in the Great Lakes and Wyoming is Congress' latest salvo against the Endangered Species Act. Since January congressional Republicans have introduced 34 legislative assaults against endangered species and their most powerful protection: the Endangered Species Act. Bad bills like the one targeting Great Lakes and Wyoming wolves undermine the Act, putting threatened and endangered wildlife back in the crosshairs. We expect more of these dangerous, senseless riders in the days and weeks ahead. This and every other attack from Trump and Congress allowing endangered wolves to be hunted and killed must be stopped. Please join us in pushing back against this bill and the torrent of wildlife decimation. The science-based approach of the Endangered Species Act has brought wolves in the Great Lakes region back from the brink of extinction. Stripping protection from wolves now is exactly the wrong thing to do. Nine out of 10 Americans support the Act and want it strengthened or unchanged. Yet Congress keeps pushing to destroy this bedrock American law. While Washington and the media are distracted, we aren't. Congress is getting ready to hurt wildlife not just by weakening the Endangered Species Act, but with other malicious tricks like taking funding away from species like monarch butterflies, wolverines, walruses and the golden-winged warbler. This means even though these vulnerable species may be designated for protection, they could be wiped out. Nothing less than extinction is what's at stake in the coming days. Two dozen lawsuits against Trump's anti-wildlife administration have been filed. Just last week a new wolf pack was identified in Northern California -- but we won't be hearing good news like that in the future if Congress rips away at the bedrock law that keeps wild wolves and so many other vulnerable creatures alive. PLEASE take action now.

KEEP HOPE FOR N.H. RECOVERY CENTER OPEN!!!!!
Hope for N.h Recovery Center is being closed down 4 out of 5 centers. One of those Hope Centers being in Berlin N.h. We have barely any type of recovery help. The Hope For N.h. Recovery Center was one of the best things that happened to our community. It brought so many addicts in to begin their journey of recovery. Including myself! It has been nothing but a great impact on all of us and our town. The center has provided many meetings for anyone in need. I have personally have shown such great effort and consistency at the Hope Center I was honored to receive the key to the building and to run and facilitate some of those meetings. It has helped me greatly in my recovery. I know our local recovery center being shut down will cause great negative impact. There is no doubt in my mind that over doses will rise, along with drug crimes. We live in a small town as is. With little to nothing to do. The Hope Center has provided fun things for us to do, other then just the meetings. We need to be heard. Please help with funding. We need someone with a powerful voice. Who can help us keep the Hope for N.h Recovery Center open. Please sign. I pray someone who has power sees this and can help us!
Public Nudity Should Be Exempt From Penal Laws!
Bare Body Freedom Activist, and Music Au Naturel Artist and Producer, Ton Dou, believes the responsible at-will practice of wholesome nakedness is an essential part of the natural plan, and the solution to many of the issues humans have had with themselves and each other historically, and continue to perpetuate the problems we struggle with in society everyday. Ton Dou writes the lyrics, sings the songs, talks the talk and walks the walk of intrinsic wholesome nakedness in the light of day for the world to see because he believes it is precisely what the world needs to see if it is ever to be experienced the way nature intended it to be. Ton Dou believes it is not only when we die that we are with the Great Spirit, it is also when we are naked on the land or at sea. He also believes Bare Body Freedom is as natural and significant a human right and life choice as any other, and should never be legislated as criminal behavior, and it is this message he hopes will resonate with every member of society. He needs your help to tell law makers and law enforcers whose jobs are to serve and protect us, that we are not alarmed and / or offended by the mere sight of the bare human body. We are capable of determining whether something is right or wrong with an individual’s behavior, and in this modern day of technology, we are capable of documenting it!He needs your help to tell them that we appreciate and respect the natural human right of others to be responsibly bare for psychological and physical purposes if they choose. We are fully supportive of every member of society who resorts to nature to live a harmless, happier, healthier and more productive life.He needs your help to tell them to use currently existing laws to address lewd and lascivious behavior, when and where it is thought to have occurred whether nudity is involved or not. We believe that an individual’s state of nakedness is not an indication of a crime, and that an assessment of their behavior should be made before any other legal action is taken. He needs your help to tell them the bare human body predates any form of governance, and while human laws govern human conduct, nature's laws determine human appearance. We are very happy to have laws that help to keep us safe, and fully supportive of every official who writes and/or enforces them with this element of nature in mind. He needs your help to tell them, before electing them, that we expect them to fulfill their duties to serve and protect, on behalf of all of humanity, in concert with the laws of nature. We need your vote of confidence, and your commitment to provide for the practice of the most natural of human rights, and to protect it by removing it from penal laws nationwide. If law makers and law enforcement officials provide for the protection of the responsible at will practice of simple nudity, whether publicly or privately, society will eventually be rid of the stigma associated with the bare human body, and the average person will develop greater appreciation for who they are naturally, and more willingness to be respectful of others. If they do not, a natural source for physical and psychological health, happiness, and safety as a result of increased awareness will continue to be undermined for the average person, and nudity penal laws will continue to create and claim victims as the result of the suppression of a natural human right that if practiced would minimize or eliminate these problems naturally. Please sign this petition and be one of the very important people who are helping to send this message to lawmakers about this very important natural human rights cause. UNITED PEOPLE 2020 NAKED POLITICS ULTIMATE FREEDOM CONCERTDear United States Legislators, I started a petition on behalf of all of humanity for the most natural of human rights, and genuinely hope it reaches you in good health and great spirit. I would very much like to have your input, and hope you will not hesitate to contact me with any concerns, questions or recommendations you may have. Sincerely,Ton Dou
