Tell Amazon to Stop Supporting Fur Industry
Stand with me and call on Amazon.com owner, Jeff Bezos, to stop supporting the fur industry by removing the sale of all animal fur products on Amazon.com. What if you spent your whole life locked in a wire cage only to be electrocuted or gassed and then skinned for your fur? What if you spent the last moments of your life with a steel trap latched on your leg while you struggled, starved, and dehydrated until a trapper came to skin you? This is the horrific suffering that all animals go through when they become subjected to the fur industry either by means of trapping or being tortured and imprisoned in fur farms. When companies sell animal fur, and animal fur products, they are supporting and funding the fur industry to continue enslaving and abusing so many beautiful creatures. As human beings, we need to be the voice for animals who cannot tell people to stop hurting them and subjecting them for profit. We can be the change and we need to make change happen now. Please sign this petition to stop major companies like Amazon.com from supporting the cruel and barbaric practices of the fur industry.

Amazon Should Buy Benny's
Where can you buy some tires, Twizzlers, a bike, a rice cooker and t-shirt? Some might answer Amazon and they'd be correct, but before Amazon there was Benny's. A wonderful store that has just about everything you could need in a small space with friendly service and quality products. Unfortunately Benny's has recently announced that they will be closing their 31 stores and laying off 715 employees. I'm suggesting Amazon buy Benny's and keep the stores open but keep them exactly as they are for the most part. This way everyone can keep their jobs and Amazon will have new physical locations to sell products at (could be great for "Amazon Basics" products).

Tell Amazon it’s time to adopt “waste-free” packaging
This has probably happened to you: You order a small, non-fragile item from Amazon. The item could easily fit inside a padded envelope. Instead, it arrives in a box that is much larger than needed. This happens practically every time I order something from Amazon. Recently, I decided that enough is enough. There’s no reason for a company of this size to participate in this much waste, day in and day out, all across the globe. Amazon has taken some initial steps to address the problem of packaging waste. Last year, they stopped using wrapping paper for products purchased during the holiday season and started using gift bags instead. The company was a leader in introducing “frustration-free” packaging - using packing materials that could be opened without requiring a box-cutter or other tools. If Amazon addresses its pervasive practice of wasteful packaging we can feel better about shopping there. The company can come to be known for its responsible stewardship of our planet. This change may even be good for Amazon's bottom line. If you’re as concerned as I am by the environmental cost of Amazon's over-sized and wasteful packaging, please take a moment to sign this petition. Let's let Amazon know it’s time to eliminate excessive packaging -- right away and once and for all.

We Want Netflix or Amazon to pick up and produce new seasons of Last Man Standing!

They have brought back shows that were canceled and made them very successful as well as creating their own new content that have been successful. Let's get enough petition to either convince Amazon or Netflix to pick up the series or to convince ABC to reinstate the show.
Petition to HMRC
HMRC - 10% settlement for owed VAT for Non-Eu online FBA Sellers
Amazon.com this past decade allowed sellers to send FBA inventory into the UK without registering with the HMRC to collect VAT on sales. Many sellers did not charge the 20% fee for various reasons. They were very wrong and I am not trying to whitewash that. HMRC currently is sending invoices to these foreign sellers for 20% of all past sales collected since their first shipment to FBA. Amazon is suspending these sellers until HMRC verifies all VAT owed was paid up. Sellers did not factor this in the selling price and cannot afford to stay in business if they need to pay the full bill. This is not smart because these sellers are simply going to close up shop as Amazon won't allow them to sell without paying what HMRC says they owe. HMRC will now spend millions chasing these sellers across the world with very little leverage. My suggestion is. 1) HMRC allow sellers to settle past VAT tax owed for .10C on the dollar 2) All sellers must register with VAT and moving forward be in full compliance. Everyone will win because HMRC will spend more than they will collect chasing small businesses across the world for owed tax$. All these small businesses will be able to continue to sell in the UK and collect millions of pounds in future businesses for HMRC. Many states in the US currently have a Sales tax amnesty for past sales tax owed. That's a complete amnesty for owed sales tax.

Bring Amazon HQ2 to Salem County New Jersey
Please support the Salem County residents and surrounding area by signing this petition to bring Amazon's 2nd headquarters to Salem County. Locating Amazon's second headquarters in Salem County New Jersey will benefit Amazon and Salem County for many reasons. Salem County is a prime location since we are located at Exit 1 of the NJ Turnpike and Interstate 295 not to mention that we at the foot of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. We have plenty of land to accommodate the facility and its growth potential. As for the Salem County residents, we need jobs. Most of our county is up-for-sale. This includes many farms and homes because most of the county is unemployed. "Salem County's white collar workers have to commute to Delaware, Pennsylvania and surrounding counties for employment." This is a direct quote from Governor Christie during our Salem County Town Hall Meeting five years ago. Since then, nothing has been done to turn things around for Salem County, so we should be on the top of the state's list for consideration.

Bring Amazon to Douglas, Arizona
The City of Douglas is a small community in Southeastern Arizona that is continually looking for progress, economic growth, and new opportunities for revitalization. In the past year, city officials have made great strides in communicating with corporations and businesses in order to improve revenue coming into the city and increase local prosperity. Douglas is situated on the border with Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico and has plenty of land available for commercial development. A feasibility study for a new commercial port of entry is in the works, making it a prime choice as a location for big business. Douglas, Arizona has been interested in bringing in Amazon to establish a distribution center. The factors above make it the perfect community to host such a facility. It is a gateway to Mexico and is filled with many hard working citizens who are ready to get to work. The amount of jobs created by the construction of such a facility will be mutually beneficial. Amazon will get the workforce and support of the greatest border community in the United States of America and the people of Douglas will benefit from the job positions and community growth that the facility will provide. Douglas’ mayor, The Honorable Robert Uribe has shared the following quote from local citizen Brian A. Treviño: "We must be confident and believe in the community we live in." Now is the time for us to band together and put this quote into action. Citizens of Douglas, Cochise County, and the state of Arizona will benefit from the introduction of Amazon’s business here in Douglas. We are calling on Amazon and Jeff Bezos to hear our proposal and consider this premier southeastern Arizona community for a new distribution facility. Douglas is open for business.

Petition Amazon to build a 2nd Headquarters in Erie County
Amazon.com announced on Thursday, September 7th that it plans to open a 2nd headquarters in North America. The online retailer is soliciting pitches from cities and states for what it calls HQ2. We believe Erie County is the best place to build HQ2. Erie is between 3 large metropolitan cities; Buffalo to the East (92 miles), Cleveland to the West (100 miles) and Pittsburgh to the South (128 miles). We are home to 4 major universities and the largest medical school in the United States. Four economic drivers are emerging in Erie: healthcare, higher education, technology, and tourism. We believe Amazon HQ2 would be a valuable asset to the Erie Community. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/09/07/amazon-launches-search-for-a-second-headquarters-in-north-america.html https://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html/?node=17044620011
