Petition to Nevada State Senate, Nevada State House
Stop the mileage tax Bill 483
Bill AB483 passed and is set to take effect October 1st 2019. This bill would require Nevadans to give odometer readings so that more taxes could potentially be raised to fund roadways. The state of Nevada already pays for roadways at the pump, one third of what is paid goes to the roadways. If the money going to the roads is not being used appropriately then the step is to look at the mismanagement of the money, not potentially tax more. We need to preserve our privacy and protect those that live in rural areas that must commute. Hunters, ranchers, off road enthusiasts and people who enjoy driving as a hobby would be having to sacrifice the joy of traveling to these locations. Nevada has open lands so that offroading and these activities can be enjoyed. Many people would stop going because they can not afford the tax.This is an invasion of privacy and the government being too overbearing on it it's people. Please sign the petition to let lawmakers know that Nevadans do not need their government to invade their constitutional rights. We need lawmakers to make better choices for the people without restricting the pursuit of happiness or taxation of hobbies and recreation of the BLM lands.WE THE PEOPLE!!

Petition to Supervisor Dennis Rodoni
Save The Last Resort -- A Working Model of Sustainability in Marin County
Dear Supervisor Rodoni, We immensely appreciate your recent efforts to, at long last, reach a compromise that preserves The Last Resort (http://thelastresortlagunitas.org) David Lee Hoffman's property, as a historic landmark. As the process of working with David progresses, we must express the imperative to reinstate Marin County's own Architectural Commission's ruling that David's site is historically important. This would allow the use of the California Historic Building Code as a guideline and protections this code offers. Reinstating the Commission's ruling is ethical and allows for long-awaited progress in complying with reasonable code upgrades and an ultimate resolution. We do not want to lose The Last Resort, nor do we want to lose David as a friend, neighbor, and contributor to our community. We feel that David is a visionary who, during the past 40 years, has created solutions to climate change issues that we face as a global community. These solutions lie in the very structures and systems that stand to be destroyed if the Commission's unanimous ruling continues to be discounted or ignored. We believe the demolition of his work would severely endanger the health, safety, beauty and tranquility of Marin County - and the potential for large-scale solutions that David's innovation provides. We request that Marin County, through their receiver, reinstate their own Commission's unanimous ruling, which declared that David's property deserves local historic status. You, too, recently stated in your January 31, 2017 letter to the appointed receiver, “Furthermore, please consider this an official request from my office to include architectural and cultural value determinations on the Hoffman property in your final recommendations.” The reinstatement of the County Architectural Commission ruling would be the final step in bringing closure to the issue of preserving as much of David’s site as possible without interfering with the work of the receiver. We believe that if David loses, we all lose -- and we believe the solution is outlined by the steps in this petition. We are truly thankful to have you addressing these issues. By signing this petition we support the reinstatement of the Marin County Architectural Commission resolution that all 36 structures on the 2-acre property of David Lee Hoffman in Lagunitas constitute a cultural and historic landmark of local importance. Signed,
Petition to UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF STATES
US not to vote a resolution that Kenya become a non-permanent mbr for US Security Council
Kenya is not the right country to become a candidate for the UN Security Council non-permanent seat for the following reasons: 1. Kenya will never be a fair voice of Africa due to the maritime dispute between Somalia and Kenya before International Court of Justice. It is highly likely that Kenya will use the seat for its own illegitimate interest since Kenya has already used every possible political power to force Somali government out-of- court settlement. 2. Kenya has peace keeping army in Somalia but does support to fight terrorists Alshabab, but intervenes the sovereignty of Somalia instead. 3. Kenya is committing human right abuses against refugees in its country blocking International meetings to save lives in refugees Camps in Kenya. They ordered many times Somali refugees to go back to Somalia which its government is still struggling to provide basic security to its official let alone its people. In addition, Kenya has been just defeated its UN resolution to blocks aids to the areas Alshabab controlling in Somalia. 4. Kenya's army in Somalia never came to Somalia through Somalia parliament resolution so the Somali people do not welcome as peace keepers but they view them as occupying forces. 5. Therefore, we, Diaspora Somali Concern Group, recommend US government not to vote for Kenya to become UN Security Council non-permanent member.
Petition to Senate Appropriations Committee
Secure Our Vote! Improve our election security. We need $600M from the Senate.
We don't want the 2020 election to be hacked! There have been many problems surrounding elections in the past. Therefore, we need $600M in funding for election security. The Senate should pass the SAFE Act. Voters should vote by hand-marked paper ballots. There should be public risk-limiting audits after each election. We need money for easy-to-use non-hackable machines, software upgrades, and IT personnel who can implement risk-limiting audits, monitor open source software for unusual activity, and perform the necessary backups. Unusual activity should be publicly disclosed. Poll tapes should be posted publicly. We should encourage new, non-criminal entrepreneurs to start companies that manufacture voting equipment. Anyone who who provides election equipment or services should undergo a background check. Laws should be passed and enforced that prevent the companies from bribing election officials with gifts.
