STOP Southwest Airlines from using an Airborne Killer on its planes! #StopSouthwestPeanuts

There is an airborne allergy that can kill people within 15 minutes of breathing any particle of it- that is a peanut. Unless you have a peanut allergy, or have a loved one that is afflicted with this deadly allergy, you are not aware of how being allergic to peanuts can kill you, if you do not get medical attention within 15 minutes. The last place you can do that is in sky, so why would an Airline intentionally expose people to this allergy?  Why would they do this when you are confined in a pressurized space? #StopSouthwestPeanuts Most people believe that if someone has a peanut allergy, as long as they do not eat the peanut they are fine. THAT IS WRONG. Exposure to the dust, especially in a confined space, where air is recycled is one of the most dangerous places to be for that person.  Most people believe that if someone has a peanut allergy, they will be fine after injected with an Epipen. THAT IS WRONG. After being injected with an Epipen, the person needs to get serious medical attention immediately after this adrenaline shot. They cannot do this while in a plane in the sky. Epipens DO NOT CURE it!  Southwest is literally setting the stage for a murder. They tell people with a peanut allergy it is fine they will not serve them. See at the bottom here, their own words to my complaint letter- they can help the "Majority" of their peanut allergic fliers. Persons with a Peanut Allergy can experience a myriad of symptoms of anaphylaxis - and all are life- threatening.   These symptoms can include:  Mouth: Itching, Swelling of lips and/or tongue Lungs: Shortness of breath. Coughing or WheezingHeart: Weak pulse; Dizziness; Passing out or ShockSkin: Itching; Hives; Redness or Swelling Throat: Itching; Tightness/closure or CoughingStomach: Vomiting; Nausea; Diarrhea or Cramps Or Death. Steward and Stewardesses on Southwest Airlines have admitted they have no way of cleaning up the peanuts dropped, spilled, or crushed on the floor. The remnants, particles that are in the air remain! And they have no way of knowing about or cleaning up after those customers (who have been seen doing this) who wiped their hands off on their seats or seats in front of them, after eats peanuts.  This can be from other flights, not even the current flight! The twitter links below show photos from a flight where no peanuts were served, yet peanuts were all over the plane, that was from when I boarded the plane! The Americans with Disabilities' Act states: that something is a disability if it substantially impairs a major life function. Breathing is a major life function.  Someone with a deadly allergy like a Peanut is considered disabled under the law. Further, in 1986, Congress passed the Air Carrier Access Act. Under ACAA, the Department of Transportation does not generally consider an allergy to be a disability, however "if a person’s allergy is sufficiently severe to substantially limit a major life activity, then that person meets the definition of an individual with a disability," a DOT spokesperson told ABC News. (citation below). DOT defines an individual with a disability as someone who has an impairment that substantially limits their ability to care for themselves, perform manual tasks, walk, see, hear, speak, breath, learn or work.  If someone can not breathe after being exposed to peanuts, under this definition they are disabled due to this allergy!  So why won't Southwest help the disabled? Why do they continue to put this "killer" on their planes?  They claim their customers love peanuts too much. Putting peanuts over lives. We need to stop this, please support this petition and #boycott Southwest until they remove these deadly killers from their all of their operations.  Below are photos of peanuts all over a plane where no peanuts were even served on that plane! And Southwest's "response" My original email to them on February 16, is below- after watching a woman on a flight after eating her peanuts, wipe her hands all over the back of the cloth seat in front of her. "Hello I am aunt to a 7 year old beautiful nut allergic little girl. I fly on Southwest all the time. I cringe when you pass out peanuts on every flight. On every flight I refuse them in protest. Each time, the stewards always say well we don't serve them on flights when a known nut allergy is on board. I always have the same response- nearly every flight i see food on the floor of a prior flight. If even one peanut is on the floor, and I have seen some, any person with a nut allergy would immediately - once the plane becomes pressurized become deathly ill. Those Eppi Pens only give you 15 minutes until you need medical attention. Southwest continues to pass peanuts out though even though a large population of people have this DEADLY Illness. This illness is a disability. Since the planes are not fully scrubbed of peanut particles and debris I am formally requesting you STOP serving these as you are playing with people's lives. I love flying your airline, but this practice is truly irresponsible. They do not do this in Europe Airlines anymore. You are expanding your routes now and taking on a larger group of people and someone is going to be hurt, or killed because of this business practice. As a civil rights lawyer and a loving aunt, I beg you to please stop."   This was their cold hearted response from a "no - reply email: "Dear Traci, Thank you for contacting us. I am so glad to know that you are usually pleased with your experiences on Southwest. We appreciate the loyalty you’ve shown us as a Rapid Rewards Member since 2009 and I welcome the opportunity to address your concerns. I am truly sorry for any disappointment with having peanuts as our snack option. As you know our Employees are trained to follow certain procedures when we are notified that a Customer is traveling with us and has a severe allergy to peanut dust. That said, we have decided not to forego serving peanuts for two reasons:  1) Experience tells us that we can accommodate the majority of our Customers who have peanut allergies with our current procedures and 2) The feedback we receive from our Customers doesn't justify the need to permanently remove peanuts—a trademark of our Company. In fact, we get a great deal of positive comments regarding our peanuts from Customers who were counting on a low-sugar, low-carbohydrate snack. And, we often must respond to complaints from Customers on flights that we do not serve peanuts. Rest assured, we are grateful for your taking the time to inform us of your concerns as we realize the usefulness of Customer feedback and its purpose to improve upon our operation. Please know that I have tracked your concerns via our monthly summary, which is distributed to our Senior Leadership. We are fully committed to providing our Customers with affordable, dependable, and genuinely friendly air travel, and we will continue to do our very best to meet or exceed our Customers' expectations. Your patronage is very important to us Traci, and we hope to welcome you onboard a Southwest flight soon. Sincerely, Sloan Chatterton, Southwest Airlines The file reference number for your email is 2224661574247."    Citation:

Demand the public hold Chicago Police Officers accountable for disposing their horse waste

We, the undersigned, wish to express our concern with Chicago Police Officers and their approach to disposing horse waste and demand a protocol be implemented effective immediately.  As of 07/07/2018, The Chicago Police Department has no protocol for the disposing of horse waste.  Horse manure contains a lot of two everyday chemicals - nitrogen and phosphorus. When too much gets into a stream (by Lake Shore Drive), it grows Algae. Too much nitrogen and phosphorus in water can mess up the food chain where the stream goes, even the ocean.  The law asks law-abiding citizens to dispose of their pets waste and by not complying you are subject to a ticket/fine. The Chicago Police Department is neglecting their responsibility by not disposing of the horse manure, just like you would with any other pet, they are endangering roughly 2.7million peoples lives by it creating an opportunity for injury. The horse manure can be used as compost to fertilize and improve pastures and other crop fields, so we demand Chicago Police Officers pick up AND dispose of ANY horse manure that resulted from the horse. We therefore ask that the Chicago Police Department implement a protocol for any Chicago Police Officer on a horse to dispose of ANY horse manure that could endanger the citizens of Chicago.

Petition to East Hanover Land Planning Board, Carolyn Jandoli

Join in solidarity to prevent the construction of an infringing industrial development.

Please consider visiting the GoFundMe for this project and contributing towards the legal fund. Any amount helps!Please also visit this link for a recap of the previous town hall meetings.UPDATE: The plan has now been updated to contain one 6,000 sqft warehouse and 7 townhouses of dubious nature (that may exist only to incentivize the rezoning and may never be built). We the undersigned OPPOSE the zoning proposal to convert 8 Merry Lane, an existing Residential area, into a proposed Industrial zone. The plan is to build a huge industrial warehouse  20,000 sqft (UPDATE: Now 6,000 sqft warehouse and "7 townhouses") in the heart of residential area. We believe this is a clear circumvention of established Spot Zoning laws for the following, blatantly adverse reasons: We believe the 8 Merry Lane industrial use application is not in the best interest of the General Welfare of the public.It's contradictory to the intent of the Master Plan - whose goal it is to designate and preserve this area as a residential zone.This application will negatively affect the quality of life for the families and residents living in this and adjacent residential zones.The granting of this proposed use would be arbitrary and capricious.Please do not grant a special privilege to allow industrial use on 8 Merry Lane in East Hanover.If it happens to us, it could happen to you too. Exercise your rights as law abiding home owners and display your opposition.
