Arrest & prosecute Bill Clinton for Violation of Mass. Election Laws.
This is a call for the immediate arrest of President Bill Clinton for clear, knowing and egregious violation of the campaign laws to swing an election in a significant way. It could not be any clearer in the Massachusetts General Laws. "Campaigning within 150 feet of a polling station, or in any way interfering with the right to vote". Choosing the critical battleground state of Massachusetts, Bill Clinton should immediately be subject to arrest and prosecution. Bill Clinton was not only electioneering within the boundary. Although the spokesperson for Bill Clinton denies that he was ever inside a polling place, photos and video show him clearly greeting and talking up election workers inside. After being told to refrain from this activity, which is a 3rd degree Voter Violation Felony, for which Clinton indeed must have known the law and chose to violate it, Bill Clinton does not vote in Massachusetts, and would have no other business in a polling station on election day besides campaigning for his wife. We, the undersigned, respectfully ask that you honor the democratic process with all the dignity it deserves, and hold Bill Clinton accountable for the felony of his actions. Thank you. There is also a whitehouse.gov petition that would be presented to President O'Bama, should we be able to reach 100,000 signatures. I whole-heartedly suggest that you join me in signing this petition as well. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/investigate-violations-massachusetts-voting-laws-conducted-bill-clinton-march-1-2016
Get CPS Bank Loan Money Back For The Schools NOW
CPS got ripped off by banks for the last 10-plus years. Nearly two years ago, the Chicago Teachers Union and a coalition of community and labor organizations sounded the alarm that toxic swaps had cost the district tens of millions already and, through the lifetime of the deals, could cost hundreds of millions. David Vitale, was a central booster in promoting the virtues of these complicated financial instruments that have come back to haunt CPS. There is still a chance to do the right thing. According to federal regulations, banks that pitch finance deals to municipal borrowers have a duty to deal fairly with them. That includes not misrepresenting risks. By filing for a third-party review of the swaps through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the city and schools could recoup all the money they have lost and stand to lose in the future. Emanuel and his appointed school board have a tremendous opportunity to claw back nearly $1 billion for a revenue-starved city and school system from the banks that profited unfairly. We are in a moment in which instead of closing schools, installing regressive taxation through red light cameras and cellphone taxes, we could renegotiate the swaps and implement a LaSalle Street tax to fully fund universal pre-K, sustainable community schools and a plethora of other dire needs for our 77 community areas. It is no longer an option for the mayor to act; it's a necessity, one that the citizens of Chicago are demanding Mayor Emanuel do.
Remove All Children's Items From Your Online Store, That Are Not Compassionate to Animals
In light of the International outrage at the death of Africa's Cecil the Lion, We the undersigned, believe it is irresponsible for Pottery Barn to be offering children's symbolic 'trophy' animal products such as the Bear and Zebra Shaped Rugs for children, offered for sale by your corporation. Moreover, also offered in your online store is a sheepskin rug for children. This product is made from the skin of a real sheep once alive, and now a demonstration of cruelty to animals which you would like us to buy for our children. So called 'toys' such as this not only represent cruelty to animals but the complete disregard of the balance these animals play in our very structure, through their continued existence. We, as parents and concerned citizens of the world try our utmost to instill in our children a sense of kindness & compassion and these lessons are completely lost with these products in your online store. We are networking this petition globally, to have these items removed from production and availability through your online sales and stores. Please discontinue the sales of these 'toys' immediately, and replace them with compassionate substitutes. Thank you.
Mattel, Stop Production of Your 'Zoo Dr. Barbie'
Seaworld recently had a Barbie Dolphin Trainer doll in the Toy R Us stores, which re-inforced their beliefs that captivity is an integral part of their business. Mattel heard our voice and stopped producing this Barbie, which lent such a misguided message to our young people. Now, since the backlash of the documentay "Blackfish", Mattel is trying to put a different spin on trainers, animal VETERINARIANS and their work ethics, trying to market it to our young people, in the form of your new. ZOO DOCTOR BARBIE. This Barbie, you would like to market as a doll concerned for animal life, when in fact, if this was true, they would hold no captive animals for human entertainment purposes, allowing them to live freely in the wild or if not possible in the watchful confines of a reputable sanctuary. Zoos around the world emphasize the message that man is 'dominating', and in many cases, abusing animals around the globe, and does not coincide with the sentiments of the signers to this petition. We the undersigned would ask you stop the production of your ZOO DOCTOR Barbie, to help us instill a sense of compassion for animals to the children we raise, and to whom you hold responsibility to. Most respectfully,
UPS: Arrêtez de soutenir les chasseurs de trophées qui tuent des animaux sauvages
Je demande à UPS de se joindre à d'autre compagnies de transports responsables comme Delta et DHL Express qui ont interdit le transport d'animaux abattus par des chasseurs de trophées. Aucun animal n'a unifié le mouvement de protection des animaux dans le monde entier comme Cecil, ce lion qui a été abbattu récemment au Zimbabwe et nous devons continuer à organiser des actions en sa mémoire. S'il vous plaît, signez ma pétition demandant à UPS d'arrêter le transport d'animaux victimes de chasse aux trophées. La société UPS dit qu'elle participe à une transaction commerciale légale et qu'elle "évite de porter un jugement sur la convenance du contenu." Mais même si cette activité est légale, les implications morales sont claires. Poursuivre ce type de pratiques commerciales va dans le sens de l'extinction inévitable de nombreuses espèces. Je demande instamment à UPS d'écouter les milliers de personnes appelant à une interdiction du transport de parties d'animaux morts, plutôt que les quelques chasseurs fortunés qui verront nos écosystèmes imploser à cause de leur arrogant "droit de tuer d'autres êtres vivants". Plus précisément, UPS devrait interdire le transport de trophées provenant des "Big 5" : éléphant d'Afrique, buffle du Cap, léopard, lion d'Afrique et rhinocéros (blanc ou noir). La décision que prendra UPS aura un impact direct sur nos enfants et les leurs - les futurs gardiens de notre planète. S'il vous plaît, demandez à UPS d'interdire le transport de dépouilles de notre merveilleux règne animal.
UPS: Hören Sie auf, Trophäenjäger zu unterstützen, die Wildtiere ermorden
Ich fordere UPS dazu auf, anderen Fluggesellschaften und Logistikunternehmen zu folgen (z.B. DHL Express oder Lufthansa), die bereits ein Verbot für den Transport ermordeter Wildtiere erlassen haben. Kein Lebewesen hat die weltweite Tierschutzvbewegung so sehr vereint wie Cecil und wir müssen deshalb das Momentum nutzen und uns weiter zusammenschließen. Bitte unterzeichnen Sie meine Petition und setzen Sie sich somit dafür ein, dass UPS aufhört, Tiere für Trophäenjäger zu transportieren. UPS sagt, dass sie einem legalen Geschäftsplan folgen und “es vermeiden, Urteile über die Angemessenheit des transportierten Inhalts zu machen“. Selbst wenn der Transport legal ist, hat UPS auch eine klare moralische Verantwortung. Wer weiterhin solche Trophäentransporte durchführt, der beteiligt sich aktiv an der Ausrottung vieler Tierarten. Deshalb dränge ich UPS dazu, uns und unsere Forderung zu erhören und den Transport toter Tiere zu verbieten. Lieber sollen sie uns zuhören als den paar wenigen wohlhabenden Jägern, die mit ihrer arroganten Art und der selbstgegebenen Lizenz zu Töten dazu beitragen, unser Ökosystem zu zerstören. Insbesondere die „Großen 5“ (Afrikanischer Elefant, Kaffernbüffel, Leopard, Löwe und Nashorn) sollte UPS nicht mehr als Trophäen transportieren. Die Handlungen von UPS werden einen direkten Effekt auf die Welt haben, die wir unseren Kindern hinterlassen. Bitte verlangen Sie von UPS ein Transportverbot der Überbleibsel des Tierreichs.
United Parcel Service (UPS): Stop supporting trophy hunters who kill wildlife
I'm asking UPS to join the other conscientious airlines and freight handlers like Delta and DHL Express that have banned the transport of animals slaughtered as trophies. No animal has unified the worldwide animal protection movement like Cecil, and we must continue to organize in his memory. Please sign my petition asking UPS to stop transporting animal parts from trophy hunts. UPS says they're participating in a legal business transaction and they "avoid making judgments on the appropriateness of the contents." But while the activity may be legal, the moral implications are clear. To continue this type of business practice flies in the face of the inevitable extinction of many species. I urge UPS to listen to the masses calling for a ban on the transport of the dead animal parts, rather than the few wealthy hunters who would see our ecosystems implode by their arrogant sense of self-entitlement to kill other living creatures. Specifically, UPS should ban the "Big 5" animals (African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and African lion, and White/Black rhinoceros). The action UPS takes will have a direct correlation on our children and theirs -- the future guardians of our planet. Please tell UPS to ban transport of the remains of our wonderful animal kingdom.
Take the Seaworld Dolphin Trainer Barbie off your shelves
By selling a Barbie doll, one of a girl's most popular toy, representing a dolphin trainer is not only unethical, but shows lack of compassion on Toys "R" Us part. When a dolphin is taken into captivity from the wild, or is born into captivity, more times than not, the family units are broken apart to ship dolphins to different marine parks around the country and even the world. For dolphins, this equates to cruel and unusual punishment as the dolphin society is very close and family-oriented, with babies and juveniles staying with their mothers their entire lives. Keeping dolphins in concrete tanks also is cruel to these highly intelligent animals, as they use their echolocation to navigate and to find food in the wild, but in a tank they become disoriented and confused. Dolphins are fed dead fish loaded with antibiotics, antacids, and other medications to help them survive longer in captivity, some are even said to be taking anti-depressants, but I can't confirm this with accuracy. We, as parents, want to teach our children, both girls and boys, to be kind and caring to animals. They are often smaller, weaker, and can't stand up for themselves-quite like against a bully in school. I tell my 8 year old to always stand up to the class bully, and I tell her to stand up for the defense of the defenseless and give them a voice. HERE ARE THEIR VOICES, AND THEY SPEAK WITH DETERMINATION AND CONVICTION. TAKE YOUR DOLPHIN TRAINER BARBIE FROM YOUR SHELVES. You had told a friend of mine a year ago that you show this doll to show the girls the opportunities they can be when they grow up. My answer to this would be "If I showed my daughter that she could grow up to be a serial killer? Does this make it right?" I would hazaard a guess that your answer might be 'Of course not'. Your sending this message to our young girls makes as much sense as my scenario posed to you does. Please remove your Dolphin Trainer Barbie from your shelves.
Remove Seaworld Dolphin Trainer Barbie from your shelves
Remove Seaworld Dolphin Trainer Barbie from your shelves As the mother of an 8 year old daughter, I think it is highly unethical to be offering a toy for children that is based on the suffering of captive Dolphins held at Seaworld marine parks. Dolphins use echolocation to guide them through water in the wild, and to be housed in concrete tanks it causes great stress and suffering, as someone living in a room full of mirrors would feel, disoriented and confused. Dolphins also are highly family oriented, and when they are moved from their families it causes such damage, they usually are not housed with dolphins of their own family, or pod, and since each pod has their own distinct vocalizations, communication and socialization within the tanks are strained at best. Seaworld also conducts a captive breeding program, where dolphins and orcas are impregnated much earlier than they would have been in the wild, causing these orcas and dolphins to give birth to stillborn babies which causes the mother dolphins terrible, visible grief. Also a form of cruelty. Children need to be taught compassion for animals, and those animals that cannot defend themselves our children should be taught to come to their aid, as they would with a bully in school. This Seaworld Dolphin Trainer doll in our estimation, does not teach compassion for animals, it simply speaking teaches domination over an animal, that performs silly tricks in order to be fed anti-biotic, antacid and medication laced dead fish to avoid being hungry. Dolphins are highly-intelligent, family-oriented, sensitive, sentient animals that need to swim free in their own watery world of the ocean, not kept prisoner in a Seaworld tank for the entertainment of human visitors to their parks for the sole purpose of the bottome line...money. We the undersigned, request that you remove the Seaworld Dolphin Trainer Barbie from your shelves, in order for you to send the correct message to your patrons of what you, as a company, value.
Take the Seaworld Barbie off your shelves.
Seaworld recently had a Barbie Dolphin Trainer doll in the Toy R Us stores, which re-inforced their beliefs that captivity is an integral part of their business. Now, since the backlash of the documentay "Blackfish", they are trying to put a different spin on their trainers work ethics, and trying to market it to our young people. Seaworld is trying to have the public think they are concerned for marine life, when in fact, if this was true, they would hold no cetaceans captive for human entertainment purposes. Once Seaworld retires the cetaceans it has on it's properties around the world, Once they try to rehabilitate the wild-caught Orcas and dolphins in their possesion, then they can talk without inpunity the fact that they are in the business of helping marine wildlife. Until this time comes, however, we the undersigned would ask you remove the Seaworld Barbie from your shelves. Respectfully
