DOGS ARE FRIENDS, NOT FOOD!!!
Every year at the summer solstice, thousands and thousands of dogs becomes food to Yulin, Guangxi locals. These locals claim that these dogs are killed humanely as they said "eating dog is no different from eating pork or beef" However, campaigners beg to differ, they strongly claimed that the dogs are killed brutally and abominably. Some are being boiled, skinned and burned alive without mercy. Not only they kill dogs and eat them as dinner or lunch, they also steal other people's pet dog even if it's inside their owner's compound so that they could satisfy their pleasure in killing and having the guts to eat these dogs without conscience. This fact is supported by various pictures on the internet of dogs with collars in their necks clearly showing ownership. Just imagine if your pet is taken away from you, a pet you treasure like your own and these horrid, torturous ways of butchery is done to them? Would you just sit still and watch it happen? Won't you step forward and stop this inhumane tradition? DOGS ARE PETS NOT FOOD!! These practices are not only harmful and painful to dogs, but also humans, dog meat is not meant to be eaten because of various diseases, viruses and worms. They might be immune to these, but how would you feel if not only you, but your kids or nephew or niece or maybe your siblings or simply your whole family caught such diseases? By signing this petition you won't only stop Yulin Festival but also save countless dogs that are in danger as well as families and children that are at risk. HELP US ERADICATE YULIN FESTIVAL AND SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOGS!

Sign: Pass the Humane Cosmetics Act to Stop Cruel Animal Testing
The Humane Cosmetics Act -- which would ban animal cosmetic testing in the U.S. -- has been re-introduced in the House. It’s time to pass this bill and save countless animals from being used in tortuous and unnecessary experiments. Animals used in cosmetic testing are subjected to excruciatingly painful procedures. And when the testing is over, they are typically killed by decapitation, neck-breaking, or asphyxiation. In one of these cosmetic tests, rats are forced to breath in a substance to test if it’s toxic. The animals often experience seizures, paralysis, bleeding, and convulsions. Most die within fourteen days of being exposed to the substance. In another horrific test, pregnant rabbits and rats are force-fed a toxic substance throughout their pregnancy. The animal is killed on the day before they’re supposed to give birth. Researchers then extract their babies and test them for developmental abnormalities. “The cruelty animals are subjected to during cosmetics testing is unacceptable—from lethal dose tests to irritation and force-feeding tests. Not only are these tests inhumane, but modern technology makes them unnecessary and overly expensive,” said Representative McSally, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, in a press release. More than 30 countries around the world have banned the sale of cosmetics that are tested on animals. Now, it’s time for the United States to follow suit. Sign this petition to tell Congress to pass the Humane Cosmetics Act and finally stop the suffering.

Sign: Stop the Slaughter of America's Wild Mustangs
If we don't act now, thousands of America's iconic wild horses may be culled -- or sold off to meat slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada, where torture and painful death await. For nearly 3 decades, wild horses have been protected by a ban on the slaughter of healthy animals or any sale that "results in their destruction for processing into commercial products.” But Trump's 2018 budget proposal would allow “humane euthanasia and unrestricted sale of certain excess animals.” No horse's life is "excess," and these animals do not deserve to be rounded up, slaughtered, and sold for meat just to give more land to rich cattle ranchers, as many speculate will be the case. Instead of brutally killing America's horses, the government should enact cruelty free population control measures, such as reducing births. Better yet, they should protect the public land on which these majestic creatures roam free. Sign the petition to tell Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that he must prohibit the slaughter and sale of America's wild horses. Thousands of horses' lives depend on it!

Ask Congress to Outlaw Dog and Cat Meat in the U.S.
Did you know that dog and cat meat is completely legal in 44 states of the U.S.? That’s right — as shocked and outraged as so many of us are about the brutality to companion animals in other parts of the world, the truth is that the slaughter is happening right here in our homeland, too. A mere 6 states have outlawed dog and cat meat; that leaves nearly 90% of the country with no law protecting these animals from being killed, butchered and eaten. But now, there is an opportunity to finally end this atrocity. Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) has introduced H.R. 1406, the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2017, which will prohibit the transport, sale, and possession of dogs or cats to be slaughtered for human consumption. "This bill allows the United States to stand in unity with other countries that have made the dog and cat meat trade illegal, while also giving the United States greater standing to urge other countries to end this brutal and inhumane practice once and for all,” said Hastings. This legislation was cosponsored by Reps. Vern Buchanan (R-FL), Dave Trott (R-MI), and Brenden F. Boyle (D-PA). And with the support of both parties, there is no excuse for Congress not to pass this lifesaving bill. Please sign the petition urging Congress to enact the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2017 at once. It’s time for America to finally protect its companion animals from slaughter.
Petition to Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Charles Schumer
Real people NEED The ACA-Obamacare. Don't play politics with people's health and lives.
My wife has pre existing conditions. Before the blessing that is Obamacare came along, because of those life altering pre existing conditions, we were only able to afford a health insurance policy that had a $10,000 deductible at a very high monthly premium. She couldn't afford to see doctors regularly and her health deteriorated. I remember counting the days to Obamacare and spending most of the night, and many frustrating days following, struggling to sign up, and once we did, the smile on my wife's face, the sigh of relief that she too can see a doctor, and there was hope. I remember tears of relief and hope. We celebrated the peace of mind this brought us with a hug, a smile and a good nights sleep. Today, there are tears again, fear instead of hope, anxiety instead of peace of mind, worries and sleepless nights (it is 3:42 am as I write this). I hear politicians exclaiming, speaking indignantly, waving their fists and wagging their tounges all preaching about what will happen when 25,000,000 get cut and have no insurance, the outcry there will be.....well, we are those 25,000,000, we are each a human being , not a number. You know us, we are your family member, your neighbor, your Uber driver, your friend, your classmate from years ago, your acquaintance of today.... STOP using our plights for political fodder and for so much fist waving and speechifying! STOP being resigned to the fact that there are not enough Democrats in the Senate to stop this lunacy and reach out to Republican Senators who are thinking individuals and STOP the insanity! Senators McConnel and Schumer, do the hard work that is your job and that you know how to do so well and make it known that this end of Obamacare tragedy and travesty will NOT happen. Don't let us suffer with anxiety and sleepless nights and worse ! For my wife, who is asleep as I write this while I am up worrying about her health and healthcare, for all of us , each one of us, real people - not numbers, DON'T wait to see and hear the outcry when 25,000,000 are left without insurance! Do the hard work of bringing sanity back now. Our health, and our healthcare is not, and should not be a partisan issue! DON'T LEAVE 25,000,000 PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. SAVE OBAMACARE/ The Affordable Care Act! PS: If you say there will be insurance available for those with pre existing conditions, you know that premiums for those with any pre existing condition will go back to being astronomically expensive and unaffordable and high risk pools are either unavailable, most don't meet criteria eligibility, and those that do see high costs and even higher deductibles.
Petition to ISO
Change the present "Taiwan, Province of China" to "Taiwan"
Taiwan is definitely not "a province of China".We, the Taiwanese, have elected our leader through direct democratic means, fully support the democratic rights of self-determination, and the entitlement to certain inalienable rights of all humanity.Taiwan has its own political, postal, financial, and socioeconomic systems that is run independently. We are citizens of Taiwan, not China. There is no "Taiwan, Province of China" in any of our documentation indicating our citizenship to Taiwan or any relevant information.If the ISO does not rectify this problem, it would further increase our own pains of our identity being overruled. For the past six decades China had been threatening Taiwan with military conflict. They already have maintained a substantial number of missiles aimed at Taiwan, with annual increases in both numerical strength and weapon efficiency.Due to present ISO standards, any statement made on a form in the Internet would change "Taiwan" as "Taiwan, Province of China". This is a tremendous insult both to us, the petitioners, and the Taiwanese community. We humbly plead the ISO to change this mistake and allow the Taiwanese people to proudly select their country as "Taiwan", not "Taiwan, Province of China". The link below is the key evidence of the imperative need to rectify this mistake. https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:code:3166:TW 本簽署目的在鄭重要求:國際標準組織（ISO） 將台灣列為「中國．台灣省」更正成為「台灣」！ 呼籲全世界 認同自由民主國家"台灣"主權的人士，共同參與全球網路連署，藉此向國際社會宣示我們國家之完整主權，絕非鄰國的中華人民共合國的任何轄區的省份之一! 讓全世界端正視聽並且尊重我們國家真實存在的事實。不要再將錯就錯 委屈台灣國民~ 以下是全球連署網頁，歡迎以中文填寫連署資料。貼上上面的制式抗議內文亦可。更歡迎分享您的高見 影響更多人為 "台灣 正名" 發聲!

Time to Impeach Trump: Obstructing Justice and Abuse of Power
President Donald J. Trump has displayed that he is unfit for President in numerous ways. Former FBI Director Comey has helped make it clear from his testimony this morning that President Trump has contributed to at minimum obstructing justice and abusing his power.Democracy for America points out that Comey has jut began by saying:* Trump invited Comey to a private dinner at the White House and pushed him over and over to compromise his impartiality, implying that Comey could be replaced if he didn't and outright saying, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty." Comey refused.* Later, shortly after former national security advisor Michael Flynn's resignation, Trump pulled Comey aside after a briefing and pushed him to drop the investigation into Flynn, saying repeatedly, "I hope you can let this go."* Following that meeting, Trump called Comey on the phone multiple times to complain about the Russia investigation. As Comey wrote: "He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. He asked what we could do to 'lift the cloud.” Join me in urging the U.S. House and U.S. Senate Leadership that the time for impeachment is now and has never been more clear. All eyes are Congress to keep the nations integrity and national security protected. Photo Credit: The Atlantic

Stop the "Special" Monument at Olustee
In 1912 a Monument commemorating the Battle and Forces of BOTH sides was erected by a Monument Commission established by State of Florida. Current ‘balanced’ text on the current Federal/Confederate/Battle Monument erected in 1912 by the Commission established by Florida Law: “The Battle of Olustee was Fought on this Ground February 20th 1864 Between 5,000 Confederate Troops Commanded by General Joseph E. Finegan and 6,000 Federal Troops under General Truman Seymour. The Federals were defeated with a loss of 2,000 men. The Confederate loss was less than 1,000.” Now, on the 150th anniversary, the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War feels a special monument is justified, claiming that there is no monument to Federal forces on the site. Visitors to the site know that a large monument only to Federal Forces was dedicated in 1962 - the Centennial of the Battle by the same group, making this a disingenuous claim. The land the monument sits on was procured by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and eventually donated to the State of Florida for this re-unification monument. Some modest additions have been made over the years, but the balanced text is the prominent feature. There are many reasons to object to this Special monument: 1. disruption of hallowed ground, 2. if one 'special' monument is allowed, how many more 'special' monuments must then in fairness be approved, possibly creating a checkerboard of monuments on the site, and many more. Appeals have been made to the Park Service but they seem to be dead set, so its is time for the citizens voice to be heard. Please sign this petition, and then share it with you likeminded friends and family.
