• Take Tasers out of Flagler County Schools
    Tasers have risks associated with their use. The law mandates that parents send their children to school. Schools act in loco parentis and are responsible for the safety of the children in their care. Parents can not Tase their children with impunity. Take the police out of the schools and hire trained unarmed security guards in their place. Students don't shed their constitutional rigbts at the schoolhouse door.

  • Vote Against Public Employee Domestic Partner Benefits Restriction Act
    Recently, the Michigan House of Representatives passed HB 4770, the Public Employee Domestic Partner Benefits Restriction Act, and HB 4771, an amendment to 1947 PA 336. Together, these bills seek not only to prevent our universities and colleges, schools and public services from providing health benefits to the domestic partners of public employees, but they also seek to strip health benefits from people who have already negotiated contracts extending these benefits to domestic partners. This legislation is not only morally reprehensible but also economically myopic.

  • Jusitice for Barry, Justice for All
    Barry Deloatch was killed by New Brunswick Police on September 22, 2011. The New Brunswick Police Department and Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan have been completely uncooperative in telling Barry's parents, brothers, sisters, fiance, and children why he was cornered in an alley and murdered. Sign this petition to demand that Lieutenant JT Miller and Bruce Kaplan end this suspicious, ambiguous silence and give a grieving family answers. Update: It took 48hrs to find out that Barry had a stick. Those "investigating" this case are insane if they think the family and friends of Barry will be placated with a "stick and scuffle" story.

    At the September 22, 2011 Republican Debate, Former United States Senator Rick Santorum not only declared that if he was elected President he would re-institute Don't Ask Don't Tell, but also stood idly by as the audience booed an American solider on active duty in a war zone. Rick Santorum should publicly apologize to US Soldier Stephen Hill.

  • Label GMO's
    Some people do not want to consume, use as drugs, or be injected with GMO's and while the FDA has stated that it is not up to citizens to decide what foods and drugs are safe, it is the FDA's job to regulate these things. The bill of rights ensure freedom of religion for all in the United States and GMO's are against certain religious doctrines. There are scriptures mentioned in the Christian bible and Hindu texts as well warning against mixing the blood of humans with animals and other related issues. Since GMO's often use animal, bacterial, and viral DNA from animals, people who want to follow these texts should have a religious right to know what is in their food, drugs, and vaccines. Please label all GMO's including what type (animal, viral and from what animal, bacterial and from what animal) of DNA and/or genes that have been added, removed, promoted, inhibited, moved, rearranged, replicated, changed in any way, or corrupted so that people can follow their doctrine freely without inhibiting the rights of corporations to sell these products.

  • Civil Unions are great, but DE needs marriage equality
    This May 11 was an historic day as Governor Jack Markell signed Civil Unions into law in Delaware. That's great, but it falls far short of full civil rights for lesbian and gay couples. Only full marriage equality will do that. Sign our petition demanding that Delaware enact full marriage equality in 2012.
