1. AFRICOM off African soil

AFRICOM is a military entity that is encircling Africa. It is the cutting edge of the imperialist war machine that brings drones and other military hardware that kills african and destabilises the region.

AFRICOM threatens the peace and stability in Africa and drives a colonial agenda that is destructive and exploitative. Africa, in order to develop itself in peace, needs all war machines off its soil so as it has a sovereign integrity and political independence.

There will never be peace in Africa as long as AFRICOM is on its soil.

2. Britain Must Leave The European Union

Withdrawal from The European Union is an option that must be offered to the people of Britain.

Donna is a beautiful loved Daughter, Grand Daughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin, Friend and Honor Student. We are asking Mr. Burgess to Please Help Us Bring Donna Home.

4. AIRWAVES FOR YOUTH

There are many senseless and irrelevant programs being broadcasted on the radio and television in the metropolitan area where the crime rate is outrageously high.

I think that Radio One should cut some programs and devote at least one hour to the youth. Allowing them to call the station and express themselves about what's going on in there community, schools, and personal situations.

A counselor of some sort would also be available to answer questions and give advice. I also believe that BET should bring Teen Summit back. It would also be a good way for teens to receive information and speak on certain issues such as sex,gang violence,and STD's.

WPGC is my favorite radio station but I have an issue with them. They speak on violence in the city every chance they get but why not open up the lines for the youth to call in and express themselves. We have all these senseless programs on the radio but the biggest issue is left unattended.

I also have a big problem with my favorite television station BET. Who like I said about WPGC have discussed youth violence but where is the shows like Teen Summit? We need these programs back in the lives of the youth so there’s space and a place to air out issues. If we don’t reach out to our youth we will never know what’s really bothering them.

Thanks,

Steven Davis Jr.

5. Ban all animals Circuses and all animal acts! speak for those who can't speak for themselves

Animals exploited for human entertainment face appalling treatment, pose threats to public health and safety, are currently not adequately regulated by state and federal laws, and do not conserve endangered species as is so often claimed.

I strongly believe that the standard industry tools and methods used to initially "break" and train animals throughout their lives, including the bullhook, chaining, food and water deprivation, use of whips, clubs and blunt objects, and electric prods, are incredibly inhumane. In addition, subjecting circus animals to travel for up to 11 months of the year for thousands of hours, over long distances, is unspeakably cruel. As you know, these animals may be chained while not performing, transported in vehicles that lack climate control, and forced to stand or lie in their own waste.

Wild animals used in public displays are dangerous — and even deadly. Recent incidents nationwide highlight the need for tighter restrictions on the exhibition of these animals. In addition to the many documented escapes and attacks by captive animals used for exhibition, elephants may carry tuberculosis (TB), and can infect humans with the bacterial disease.

Circuses are entertainment, not education. Watching wild animals perform unnatural tricks only teaches our children that it is acceptable to exploit animals; it does not teach respect for animals, nor does it help animals in the wild. Animal-free circuses and entertainment, such as Cole Brothers Circus and Cirque du Soleil, are growing as the use of wild animals becomes recognized as archaic, unsafe and inhumane.

For the sake of human safety and animal welfare, please stop using animals in Carson &Barnes,Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey.

People who support the circus should be ashamed of themselves. To sit there and watch these animals suffer a lot of them die and kill people. Do you blame them? I am so angry about this and how can you buy a show and sit there and watch them suffer?

6. Stop Animal Testing Immediately

If you want to learn more about animal testing then you should go to www.google.com for a search engine. Or go to youtube.com and type in animal testing!

7. English as the official language of the United States

I believe the US should have and official language, that being English. I do not believe that businesses should be catering to other languages.

Businesses putting their product language in spanish is just catering to Spanish speaking people. If a person comes to America to live, they should learn the official language of America - America should not cater to them. If I went to Mexico to live, I would learn Spanish.

In Mexico, it is a given that everyone speaks spanish, why is it not a given here that everyone speak English? I am an American, not a Mexican or Asian, I speak English and so should everyone who lives here.

8. A Public Apology by John Kerry

In the weeks, past, Mr John Kerry has said some pretty degrading things about our United States military, not only the army, but the marines, the coast guard, the navy, and peace corps.

As I was lisetning to Mr. John Kerry speak about education and the remark said about the military, I was astounded, I could not believe what I was hearing, I believe his exact words were, "If you make the most of it and study hard and do your homework and you make an effort to be smart you can do well, if you don't, you can get stuck in Iraq"

I cant believe how he cut our U.S. Military down to nothing !. We serve our country not to have people degrate us like we are nothing, our soldiers serve the united states proudly , not to have people like John Kerry cut them down to nothing. Some of our untied states soldiers have many college degrees and have decided to serve our country. Others are currently in college elevating their education and still have to serve in iraq.

If you would like to sign my Petition to have him speak again but to apologise for what he said, please sign below ! Thankyou for taking time to read this !

9. International Speak in Interpretive Poetry Day on February the 3rd

This is the death anniversary of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper, the founders of rock, who died in a plane crash in Clear Lake Iowa, inspiring Don McLean to write the classic American Pie.

Speaking in interpretive poetry will honour and commemorate these great souls and give you the opportunity to speak in nonsensical language for a day each year.

10. Zero tolerance for repeat sex offenders

July 14, 2006

To ask that the sentences for sex offences both of adult and children be made more severve.

The way sentences are handed out in these cases are a travesty. The inept sentences serve only to re-victimise the victim and make it easy for offenders to continue to offend.

I am asking that the sentences for first offence be no less than 5 years Australia wide and that if a convicted offender re-offends post release that there be put in place a zero tolerance no second chance law that sentences them to life with no opportunity for parole How many more times do rapists and child molesters need to some that they are unremorseful for their acts and will continue to re-offend at every opportunity.

U people in parliament have the power with in ur hands to change this it's time we screamed NO loudly and put the message across that we as a society will not tolerate sexual predators FULL STOP.

When you read this thing of poor Sofia before you just dismiss my words and do your job speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, make the sentences just not unjust.

Think of innocence (of a child) then attempt to put a value on it, then think how long these sexual predators should rot behind bars.

Please stand up and fix the problem now.

11. Speaking English in USA schools

April 21, 2006

I think that it would be less confusing for the school system if all students were required to speak only English.

January 18, 2006

14. Dr. Scott for Graduation Speaker

We are requesting to have Dr. Rob Scott be the "keynote" speaker at the Chiropractic Graduation Ceremony on August 6, 2005. We understand that he has been asked to speak as the outgoing Dean.

As a class we would like to hear a motivational speach from Dr. Scott, not a speach about being an alumnus of the school and supporting the national organizations. We also do not think it is fair to have him represent the school when he is no longer employed by the university.

16. A Cystic Fibrosis Centre in Toronto

We, the undersigned, hereby wish for there to be a full time health centre for people living with cystic fibrosis. This would allow for a place, outside of hospitals, where families and individuals can go to receive treatments, be cared for when they're ill, and speak to others dealing with the same medical problems as themselves.

18. STOP ANIMAL TESTING NOW!!

I want animal testing to be stopped. I don't think we need to test cosmetic items on animals when there are intelligent scientists out there that know alternatives to animal testing.
