Petition to Cancel Lady Gaga from 2017 NFL Halftime Show
Make your voice heard! The NFL has become a leftist propaganda machine, and we are not buying it anymore! From Bob Costa's gun control propaganda, to supporting Beyonce's black supremacy agenda at the 2016 Superbowl, and Kaepernick's failing knees, the NFL has alienated millions of ordinary everyday Americans. Yet they still can't seem to get the message for why their ratings have tanked. They blame it on everyone and everything, except for where the blame clearly lies..with themselves! Tell them loud and clear...WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE! We will refuse to participate in celebrating with someone who expresses hate for those who disagree with her, or the hate she expresses for President-Elect Trump. If they do not change the propaganda halftime show with angry leftist agitator Lady Gaga, we will continue to boycott the NFL, including their 2017 Superbowl, and related sponsors.

Columbia University - Establish a Barack Obama Policy Institute
Signers of this petition are interested in establishing a nonpartisan Policy Institute and Social Service Fellowship Program at Columbia University. The proposed institute would serve as an incubator for policy development & social service advocacy to continue & commemorate the legacy of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama - Columbia University Class '83. What's the Mission?The proposed goal of the Institute is to: 1) place itself at the forefront of research and the development of public policy as it corresponds with the President's directive. 2) oversee a professional development fellowship program to develop a cadre of social service professionals. Why Columbia?Columbia's reputation of creating innovative research institutions and diverse policy programs has attracted and engaged the best minds in pursuit of greater human understanding and service to society. The University is a beacon in New York City and a national titan when it comes to producing some of our country's most devoted public servants and civil rights defenders. Many are aware of Alumni President Barack Obama and U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton; however, few are cognizant of fellow public service alumni such as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg ( Law'59), and former Attorney General Eric Holder (CC'73 Law'76). With access to many of the nation's industry leaders and policy wonks, what better location than Columbia University? .... and all while having New York City as its backdrop! Who can sponsor initiative?This petition requests University President, Lee C. Bollinger (Law '71), in conjunction with all vested parties, champion the effort on behalf of the petition signers. President Bollinger is one of the country’s foremost First Amendment scholars, in addition to having led the historic Supreme Court case of Grutter v. Bollinger and Gratz v. Bollinger, which defined the importance of diversity as a compelling justification for affirmative action in higher education. Within the last decade and a half, President Bollinger aggressively established a network of eight Columbia Global Centers on four continents; led a sustainable (LEEDs) designated university expansion; and forged a $30mm faculty diversity program. Under his tutelage, the University could provide futile ground for developing a world-class institution and distinguished pool of young leaders.

Convicted domestic abusers aren’t heroes. Don’t let them play in the NFL.
I’ve been a football fan for years, proudly rooting for the Cleveland Browns through the good seasons and the bad ones. I’m also a social worker who works with children who have experienced domestic violence in their families. That’s why I was sickened to find out that NFL players and staff can be convicted of domestic violence in a court of law and keep their jobs. My young clients shouldn’t be told by the NFL that it’s ok for domestic abusers to hurt people, and still be professional sports heroes. If the NFL really takes domestic violence seriously, why do they think it’s ok to wait until someone is criminally convicted of domestic violence twice before they finally get kicked out? Many people, but especially our kids, look up to NFL players -- some even consider them heroes. The NFL even refers to its players as heroes on their own web site. And as a social worker who works with children who have experienced domestic violence in their families, I know how important inspiring role models can be. But to me, a real hero is a hero on and off the field. Children who experience domestic violence need to know that how they or their abused parent have been treated is not okay. They need to see that domestic violence is unacceptable whether it’s someone’s parent hitting a child, or an NFL player hurting his wife or girlfriend. Tell the NFL that if a court convicts a football player or staff member of domestic violence, that person shouldn’t get to keep being a hero every Sunday. NFL commentator and Hall of Fame member Terry Bradshaw recently said, “Anybody, in my opinion, who lays a hand on a woman, I don't care who you are, my friend: you never come back in this league. … I really, really seriously hope, eventually, we never have a place in the NFL for people who ... strike a woman.” I agree. The NFL should not be home to men convicted of domestic violence. But the NFL’s current policy sends a message to everyone who looks up to people in the NFL that domestic abusers still get to be heroes. This is wrong. Sign my petition. Tell the NFL that if someone is convicted of domestic violence, they should be kicked out of the NFL.
Petition to Roger Goodell, NFL, Jerry Jones
Get Greg Hardy out of the NFL!
"He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me. I was so scared I wanted to die. When he loosened his grip slightly, I said, 'Just do it. Kill me.'" Those are the words of Nicole Holder, the ex-girlfriend of NFL player Greg Hardy, who has largely gone unpunished for beating and injuring her in 2014. When the graphic photos and accounts about Hardy’s terrible actions recently came out, I was appalled and upset. It is completely unacceptable to hit a woman and lead her to believe that she may lose her life. Yet the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL don’t appear to share that view. Hardy is playing in the NFL today with little consequence for his actions. That must change: The Cowboys should immediately release him, and the NFL should make sure that he never plays another game in the league again. A North Carolina judge originally convicted Hardy of domestic violence for what he did to Holder. But the case was dismissed on appeal and Hardy received his $13 million salary despite playing in a only one last season. Today, Hardy is a domestic abuser whose employer turns a blind eye and rewards him with millions of dollars and the opportunity to play professional football. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell -- who made several mistakes in the handling of the Ray Rice incident -- and the organizations that represent players are making a clear statement that they still aren’t willing to severely punish players who commit such serious crimes against women. That’s not OK. As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I am having an increasingly hard time supporting a league that gives players the privilege to play in the NFL despite these kind of actions. With the evidence publicly released, the next step is absolutely clear: Greg Hardy must go right now. Please sign my petition if you agree.

Demand the NFL and all parties involved to apologize to Janet Jackson over SB performance
Whereas, Janet Jackson, one of the most celebrated artists of all time, deserves an apology from all parties involved over the way she was unfairly treated in the aftermath of her iconic Superbowl Halftime performance. The backlash that she received was far more than what Justin Timberlake received and the NFL, MTV, CBS, FCC, etc should right this wrong and issue an apology to Jackson immediately, as well as lift the ban and invite her to come back to perform at the Halftime show. Janet Jackson was vilified by the media, and blacklisted from radio and music video channels for several years after the incident which without question tarnished her brand and legacy. If you believe in equality and fairness and you believe this was an injustice, please support our cause and sign this petition.

The Truth Behind The Game Winning Touchdown of Super Bowl 51
In overtime the patriots supposedly scored a game winning touchdown to win Super Bowl 51. There was no review on the play to confirm it was a touchdown. Immediately after the play confetti came down and everyone ran on the field this was wrong and the play should have been reviewed.

Twenty One Pilots for Super Bowl 52 Half-Time (2018)
Twenty One Pilots is a band from Ohio that has quickly come to fame in a very short amount of time due to the overwhelming success of their most recent album "Blurryface". Their fan base, known for their passionate support for the band, has spread to millions across the world and has brought inspiration and encouragement to countless individuals. The members of the band, Tyler Joseph (lead singer) and Josh Dun (drummer) have lived out exemplary characteristics that appears to be scarce in today's entertainment industry. Twenty One Pilots is well-known for their phenomenal live performances, displaying a unique style of creative showmanship and energy that is hard to come by. With such a massive spike in popularity, it would be impossible to ignore nominating Twenty One Pilots as a possible candidate for the Super Bowl 52 Half Time Show. Taking into account their superb ability to energize a live audience, their encouraging and life-changing messages, and their positive role model potential, it would be hard to see why any other band deserves the honor to perform in the Half Time Show at Super Bowl 52 more than Twenty One Pilots does.
