Petition to Donald Trump
Invert US flag on 4th of July to protest Trump (on facebook or house)
Our democracy is in danger and in distress. Displaying an inverted US flag is recognized as a distress signal. I'll hang my flag upside-down (or post one as my facebook pic) on 4th of July to protest and request Trump to resign.
Petition to Members of Congress and the Government Accountability Office
Stop taxpayer funding of Trump's weekends in Florida
I am an individual who worked hard all his life to afford the luxury of taking my family on vacations and weekends away from home. I would like to know why we taxpayers must now fund the extravagant costs of Trump's weekends in Florida week after week. For the most part these do not seem to be working weekends but more like golf outings. I ask that if Trump feels the need to keep following this pattern that he be made to foot the bill personally rather than at taxpayer expense. There are far more pressing and worthwhile needs requiring tax funding than this. Please ask that your Senators and Representatives act to stop the hard working American public from continued funding of this travel.
Petition to Mayor of Anaheim - Tom Tait
Make Anaheim, CA a Sanctuary City.
With the new president, we have seen an increase in racist rhetoric, which is, unfortunately, nothing new. We have a xenophobic history as well. This means more and more doors are closing on the most vulnerable of people sometimes quite literally. They get turned down and turned in to ICE agents for their inability to prove citizenship. But if these people who are law-abiding citizens get charged just for living in a country they did not have the privilege to be born in then there is more harm done to America than them. They tend to not report crimes in fear of being incarcerated themselves and they do not travel as often as natural born citizens which lowers the movement of economic circulation. If deported, America would lose the one thing that keeps it rich both culturally and economically. Undocumented citizens pay $10.6 billion dollars in taxes to fund programs that they do not get to reap the benefits of through all of America. They join the low-skill, low-wage workforce that not only increases productivity but also creates on average 7 other jobs. Since it is usually poor conditions the desirability for these jobs are minimal and they are the ones who take them. With this said Anaheim should state their status as a sanctuary city

A day of No Trump
For the last two years nearly everyday we've heard the name of Donald Trump, the country needs a break and a breath, so I am asking the news media to not talk, tweet or write about President Trump or anyone in his administration or the White House for one day, President's Day
