"STATE OF EMERGENCY" (DRUG EPIDEMIC / NORTHERN NEW MEXICO) HELP SAVE OUR CULTURE

With national statistics, data , and high numbers of deaths,illnesses attributed too drugs and as well our failing public schools, as direct links to the  "Drug Epidemic",  in Northern New Mexico,  we have been placed at the top of national graphs and state counties as one  of the worst places for drug overdose, suicide and illness in the country. Thus, we the undersigned concerned tax paying citizens are "Demanding a "State of Emergency" be declared in the county of Rio Arriba, in the state of New Mexico. For several decades we have been in a heavily oppressed, repressed and dire situation in regard too loosing large numbers of souls too include : Teens,  young and old adults as well as elderly citizens too the drug infestation, both legal ( narcotic/opiate, ect... ) and  illegal ( heroin/meth/pink/cocaine, ect..) drugs. As the Federal Government  and DEA cracks down on prescription drug dispensing, the adverse effects have increased the use of heroin and thus, increasing higher incidences of Hepatitis-c, AIDS, Crime, and Criminal Activity in all facets our livelihood. The age groups of addiction has scattered in both directions, currently it has trickled down too adolescence and gone up in some cases too great-grandparent ages. Its is no longer a "FAD" or a "TREND" in many circles it is becoming a "RITE of PASSAGE" and a way of life in others. WE are demanding that;   1) Assessment, treatment, triage, substance abuse teams be dispatched throughout the county communities. ; 2) That a temporary centrally located "medical" detox-facility and housing area be established too address our addicted citizens needs, with hopes that a permanent facility be established in the near future.

Suspend or Cancel Trump's Twitter Account

To the Chief Officers at Twitter: We the undersigned believe that presidential candidate, president-elect, and now president* Donald J. Trump has abused his Twitter account in such a way as warrants cancellation or suspension. We are grateful that you have already banned neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, Trump advisor Roger Stone, and others for violating Twitter rules, and ask that D.J. Trump not be allowed to continue violating those same rules with impunity. We also understand that tweeting is not a First Amendment right, as discussed in Salon, as explained clearly by CNN, and even addressed in a Twitter forum. Tweeting is speech conducted on a privately-run online platform governed by community standards and terms-of-service agreements. Even the ACLU said in August 2017 that it will no longer defend hate speech, particularly that of neo-Nazi, white supremacists. All of us recognize that Trump has in effect weaponized Twitter in an unfair and dangerous manner. Twitter policy states: All users must adhere to the policies set forth in the Twitter Rules. Failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent suspension of account(s). Trump has demonstrably violated the following rules: Unlawful use: You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities. His vindictive Dec. 6 Tweet aimed at Boeing led directly to significant drop in stock price. His Dec. 12 Tweet aimed at Lockheed Martin, precipitating a 4% drop in stock value. Abusive Behavior: Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism. The cyberbullying of steelworker union chief Chuck Jones, directly leading to death threats, was reported Dec. 8 in the NY Times. Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Trump's attack on a female college student is another example wherein the power of Twitter combined with Trump's status has directly resulted in personal destruction. Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. Trump's Nov. 30 Tweet threatening refugees is notable here as was his infamous rant against the American judge of Mexican descent. More recently we have the threatening of sports figures (whom he called "sons of bitches") exercising their freedom of speech, and the shameful attacks on the Mayor of San Juan while she deals with a catastrophe in Puerto Rico. These are just a few examples of violations that form a clear pattern, clear enough so that his Twitter abuse of nearly 300 people was graphically summarized in the New York Times. For these and other reasons the case has already been made by journalists for banning Trump from Twitter. Not included in the above is Trump's use of Twitter to avoid the press, whose duty it is to critically report to the public. Another category not found in Twitter rules is the reckless endangerment of entire populations. Trump's Dec. 22, 2016 tweet regarding nuclear weapons shows how the abuse of Twitter may accelerate global annihilation. His current tweets regarding North Korea undermine his own diplomats while moving us closer to nuclear conflict. And who's going to follow your rules if you change them to accommodate a single user who cannot follow them? Shameful.  Since Trump has taken office, his use of Twitter to spread misinformation has accelerated to such a degree that it cannot be chronicled here. He lies to sheriffs, to the military, to the press, to his supporters, and repeats it all on Twitter. He has interfered in the prosecution of a terrorist by Tweeting his advocacy of the death penalty. He routinely attacks the judiciary, senators, companies who don't like his brand, and anybody that criticizes him, often using misinformation. Ultimately it is up to the officers of Twitter whether Trump is allowed to continue abusing people, institutions, corporations, and the planet with your powerful technology. To be blunt, Twitter is becoming with each day more complicit in everything Trump does and will do. People are increasingly demanding an explanation for Twitter's failure to enforce its rules, and the justification offered so far--that his tweets are newsworthy--is nothing more than greed. Ask yourselves, do you want to be remembered as the corporation that helped start World War III? We hope you make the right decision, and soon.  Thank you for your attention. To be delivered to: JACK DORSEY Chief Executive Officer @jack ANTHONY NOTO Chief Operating Officer & Chief Financial Officer @anthonynoto ADAM MESSINGER Chief Technology Officer @adam_messinger VIJAYA GADDE General Counsel @vijaya LESLIE BERLAND Chief Marketing Officer @leslieberland

Petition to President Donald Trump, New York Governor, Texas Governor, US Attorney General

Release my UNCLE he’s served enough time!

My uncle Dionysius Fiumano was sentenced to serve 16 years is federal prison due to him fighting for himself, while the OWNERS of the actually company only received 2 years. My Uncle went to trial and they slammed him with 16 years, while 4 other (3 ACTUAL OWNERS AND ANOTHER EMPLOYEE)people got a slap on the hand. 3 owners got 2 years and another employee just like my uncle got 2-3 home arrest! Where is the Justice here?  Theres more owners who DID NOT GET IN TROUBLE at all!  My Uncle Dionysius Fiumano was part of a wire fraud situation, he was a SALES MANAGER not a owner, not a signer, not part owner, not a co owner just an employee. Sure he might have done wrong(first time in his life ever getting in trouble) but to give him 16 years for a white collar crime that US attorneys office can’t even get the correct amount straight into what they all truly took from others.  THE (3) OWNERS received 31 million dollars from people and my uncles salary for 3 years was only $550,000 living in California. Another employee just like my Uncle got 2-3 years house arrest!  My Uncle has been fighting in prison & deserves to be released! He deserves the same amount of prison time as the 4 others NOTHING MORE! He was sentenced to 16 years for going to trial.  Hes an amazing father to 1 son and 2 daughter who all lived with him. Please sign to help him come home!

Petition to President Donald Trump

END PERMANENT ALIMONY FOR ALL AMERICANS - Make America Great Again!

My husband and I have been ordered to pay PERMANENT lifelong alimony, under the antiquated laws of the state of New Jersey.  We have petitioned Governor Chris Christie, who has changed the law by no longer allowing permanent alimony - however this law does not effect all the unfortunate Americans who have been sentenced to permanent alimony before the law was reformed. The next logical step is to free the payors of permanent alimony that have not been released by the changes of law.  We are sick of this ball and chain called permanent alimony weighing us down - and we know there are many other American's out there suffering from the same form of financial bondage, they have written to us with their stories of financial hardship - due to permanent alimony.  Recipients of permanent alimony should not be the burden of private citizens.  This is a form of slavery and is the opposite of freedom and the opposite of what America stands for. There is no incentive for the alimony recipient to be full and productive, when they receive a check every month.  It encourages laziness.  It is a welfare system, and as such, should be the responsibility of the government.  When a child reaches the age of 18, financial obligation of the parent is over - how can the financial obligation to an ex-spouse continue indefinitely?  We will not be silenced anymore!  Our voices will be heard. Permanent Alimony is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. It is UNJUST.  AND JUST PLAIN NOT FAIR! Thank you for your support!  Let's make America Great Again by putting an end to permanent alimony!
