Petition to Malcolm Turnbull, Malcolm Turnbull MP, Bill Shorten

Change the Australian currency name (currently Australian Dollars) to Dollarydoos

Australia is slowly losing our culture, becoming more and more like America and the UK. With the loss of our culture, comes the loss of our nation. Put a stop to all this nonsense and let's take back our culture with the simple task of changing our currency (currently Australian Dollars) to the uniquely Australian name; Dollarydoo's. Yes, it's from the Simpsons but that doesn't stop it from having a true blue Australian ring to it. Wouldn't you agree? Also, our currency would sound so much better with this as our name. Currently, so many countries use the currency 'dollars', and although they have different values, they have the same name. Do we want to be blind followers of a name that we don't even like? Do we want to sacrifice our uniqueness and feel as though this is something that doesn't matter? Do we want to give up and not fight for our say? Do we want to become a meaningless culture? No, we don't. So please sign this petition and we'll take back our uniquely Australian culture, one dollarydoo at a time.                                   Dollarydoos, just for youze! This campaign was sparked by Thomas Probst. Although he got a limited edition $5 note printed by the mint, our aim is to get people to catch onto this trend. Therefore, I challenge you to officially #bringbackdollarydoos. Share this post on your social media with the hashtag #bringbackdollarydoos and raise awareness to this Australian problem. We can do it! We can bring back Australia's unique culture and change the way our entire nation thinks. You know the saying, 'She'll be right?' Well, will she really be alright if we leave this important issue? NO, SHE WON'T! We need to fight for our say, fight for the Dollarydoos!

Petition to Greg Hunt MP, Hon Greg Hunt MP

Patients First. Take urgent action for current and future Australian Lyme patients.

The Senate Inquiry into an emerging tick-borne disease that causes a Lyme-like illness for many Australians reported on November 30th, 2016. The Final Report indicated the priority was Patients First, stating: "...people are unwell, and they must be helped. It is therefore the committee's primary objective, in this, its final report on this inquiry, to put the patients first."Minister Hunt, it's time for Health Department leadership on Australian Lyme Disease – please take immediate action on the Senate Inquiry Final Report recommendations. Lyme Disease Association of Australia Statement. "The denial of locally acquired Lyme disease is based on a 20+ year old study into ticks which investigated a narrow spectrum of Borrelia and failed to further evaluate other evidence identified. International science has progressed with at least 100 Borrelia strains identified in the U.S. and up to 300 strains globally. (Source: Dr Richard Horowitz M.D.) In 2014 the government confirmed that Australia's official Lyme disease diagnostic pathology tests were ‘discordant’, meaning a negative test does not exclude the disease being present. The LDAA asserts that there is an Australian Lyme disease.  Research has not been urgently prioritised to identify the causative pathogens allowing the incidence of this emerging vector-borne disease to increase unchecked. The suggestion that patients, their carers and doctors should wait years for research projects is unreasonable. Australian Lyme patients are the evidence needed. We request the Government to prioritise Patients First.  Recognise the Lyme-like illness that is making Australians sick and make it an urgent health priority."
