• Remove Columbus Day From Groton Public Schools
    He Was an Initiator of Indigenous Slave Trade. Columbus noted that the natives he encountered were kind and giving … and that he planned to use that kindness against them. What resulted was genocide, rape, mutilations and a variety of other atrocities. We Celebrate a Murderous Undocumented Immigrant While Disparaging Hardworking & Honest Undocumented Immigrants Today. Columbus Wasn’t Even the First Explorer to Arrive in the Americas. By celebrating Columbus, we are ignoring a significant aspect of his legacy: genocide. None of Columbus's accomplishments outway the costs of the human lives that he took. It is abundantly clear that Columbus Day should be replaced with a day that honors the lives taken under Columbus’s rule.

  • JAIDENS LAW
    Jaiden Locarnini Barajas 13 years old of Reno Nv was killed on September 25 while waiting for the school bus in Fallon Nv. He was ran over by a drunk driver who turned out to be a retired police officer. Trying to flee the scene the man had to be guided off the road by a witness. Jaiden and his two sisters were standing in the yard waiting for the school bus when this man made a u turn and plowed through a yard running 13 year old Jaiden over who pushed his sister out of the way, saving her life. This man was able to go home that night to his family. Why is this ok? Why wasn't something done about this? That is why we want this law. Something needs to happen.

  • Denounce FRMC Nazi Club
    This is important especially as we are witnessing upticks in violent racially charged hate crimes. Most recently a Black family in Warren was targeted due to their race by a white neighbor. It is important that Madison Heights takes a firm, zero tolerance stance on hate and bigotry in our city. To call Madison Heights the "City of Progress" while housing a known Nazi club in 2020 seems contradictory. We can do better and the citizens of Madison Heights deserve to live in a city that does not welcome hate groups and allows them to stay.

  • Declassify The Proud Boys
    The Proud boys are in no way, shape or form a hate group! PB's are a men's club full of Proud Patriots that are often the only thing standing between us and Domestic terrorists like Antifa. The Proud Boys have been slandered by the left for political gain, even going as far as calling them White supremacists! The Chairman of the PB's is a cuban gentleman by the name of Enrique Torrio (NOT WHITE) The left needs to understand that it is not okay to slander people just for having different beliefs than they do! On every platform and even in the streets conservatives are being shunned and censored. This is the U.S we have freedom of speech & expression in this Country. We need to STOP the Over censorship of people with Right leaning beliefs and get our Boys the recognition they deserve, this is an important first step!

  • Rewrite the American Constitution
    Slaves were not freed until 1863. Women were not allowed to vote until 1920. Black people were not allowed to vote until 1965. Gay marriage was not legalized until 2015. Our constitution was written ONLY by white men in the 1700s. We are not including the thoughts and perspectives of any woman, any person of color, any of our LGBTQ communities. We cannot expect change and we cannot expect equal justice for all when we are living under the supreme laws of a document crafted in the 1700s. As women, we deserve a say As people of color, we deserve a say As people of different sexualities or nonconforming genders, we deserve a say. As people with differentiating cultures in our country, we deserve a say. Sometimes we need to deroot and replant to grow a vital and luscious garden. America, land of the free, home of the BRAVE. WE, the people, must put meaning to those words. It only takes 100,000 signatures in 30 days or less to send a petition to the white house. Please, let’s come together and fix this before it’s too late. Please, set aside our differences and let’s fix this, before it’s too late. Estados Unidos necesita tu ayuda. Por favor. Nosotras necesitamos vivir mejor. No más odio. No más tristeza. Más valentía, más libertad, más vida!! ahora! Vámonos! Salud y gracias.

  • Ban Racist Symbolism from Brown County Schools & Businesses
    William T. Thompson, the designer of the Confederate flag, said, "As a people we are fighting to maintain the Heaven-ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race" and "As a national emblem, it is significant of our higher cause, the cause of the superior race." There is so much happening in Brown County and Nashville that speaks to the deep roots of racism and ignorance in our beautiful part of the country.  Outstanding teachers have quit or are contemplating quitting the schools because their own heritage or identity is threatened by this imagery and the children and parents promoting it.  Businesses are openly selling confederate flags, sending a message to all who visit our community from the region, the country, and around the world, that hatred is openly allowed and celebrated.  Confederate flag imagery allowed on clothing in the schools and on trips outside the country to partner corporations that have their own strong Equity and Inclusion policies, making Brown County undesirable as a hiring and investment opportunity.  Skilled and passionate IU students of varying ethnicities and nationalities feel threatened coming to Brown County to tutor our children. Brown County children refer to black tutors as their "slaves".  School Board members speak openly on their social media pages about their embrace of symbols of hatred.  And this is what we know about. Imagine what goes on that we don't know about.  Please sign this petition that will be sent to all of the community leaders to BAN ALL HATE SYMBOLISM FROM NASHVILLE, IN.

  • Make Election Day A holiday NOW
    Making election day a national holiday is not only the right thing to do, but it is patriotic. Outside of serving in the Armed Forces, voting is highest thing a person can do to show their love for their country. Picking its future leaders is essential to our survival. With this level of importance the question becomes, why isn’t it a holiday? This needs to change immediately. People shouldn’t have to choose work or school over voting for the leaders of the free world. Make it a holiday NOW!

  • An Introduction To Three Critical Solutions
    On January 1, 2021, I will be 77 years old. For most of my early life, I had but a passing interest in politics. That dramatically changed with the murder of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963! A few weeks later, after I saw Life Magazine’s detailed color pictures of the Zapruder film showing the President’s head and brains being blown BACKWARD after being shot in the face, and NOT being shot from behind – as declared fact by the Warren Commission Report – I began my personal search to find out who, why, and how my government was intentionally lying to all of us then, and forward to this very day. Initially, since there was no Internet for the first three decades, my search was slow and labor intensive. However, with the advent of the Internet, my searches became much more productive. I attempted to find answers relating to politicians, other governments, the CIA, the Mafia, bankers, etc., and was about to give up on finding a satisfying answer until, about a dozen years ago, I found and read an article titled, Beware The Psychopath, My Son. After reading that article, I came to the forehead slapping realization that for all of those years I was expecting to find my answers among groups of people and all the while it was the commonality of the mental composition – of specific powerful men WITHIN those groups! It was the key which almost instantly answered so many more questions than I had ever even begun to consider. It answered political questions, economic questions, legal questions, historical questions, sociological questions, racial questions, religion questions, media questions, sexism, rationalizations for wars and so much more! I have spent the last decade confirming and expanding on my “discoveries” and last year I began what has become a three webpage explanation for all to read, absorb and then hopefully help usher through Congress a very specific bill into Federal law. So now, I would sincerely appreciate any feedback, criticism, questions, support and/or – at least pass this short introduction along to someone who may find it of interest. -- Note: The above mentioned article, upon which all of my studies are based, is the first link on the first webpage listed below. That link begins with, “Research studies have shown …”. www.rushtopower.net www.rushtopower.net/action.html BONUS: www.rushtopower.net/reset.html Respectfully, Terry Sneller aka, Tarry Faster terry@rushtopower.net

  • Condemn displaying the Confederate Flag in Rensselaerville
    Despite a complicated past, today, the Confederate Flag endures as one of the most recognizable and offensive relics of slavery, racism, intolerance and hatred in America. Issuing a condemnation of the display of the Confederate flag asserts that Rensselaerville does not wish to be a place for relics of racism or renewed hatred, and that such sentiments should not feel emboldened in our rural town.

  • An Indigenous, Atikamekw woman harassed as she died in Quebec hospital
    37-year-old Joyce Echaquan was brutally killed in the hands of Quebec hospitals nurses, all of this occurring while she was being taunted with slurs. Echaquan recorded the incident on a Facebook live. She was forced an overdose of morphine for stomach pain, and the nurses did this knowing she had a brutal medical history. There is barely news coverage on this. I haven’t heard about this until I saw it on Instagram. We need to do better for our Indigenous people. No wife and mother of seven should have had her last moments in a death bed like this.

  • Justice for Hevenly Mendonsa
    The police have been beating my sister in jail, she suffers from Schizoaffective bipolar disorder. Recently an officer kicked her so hard which resulted in a dislocated kneecap for the cop. My sister is facing charges for the cops wrongdoings in criminal court instead of mental health court. I’m asking everyone to please pray for my sister and for protection while she is in jail. My sister is a young black woman from Solano County and is being denied her rights under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) as a black woman with mental disabilities. My sister is facing 7 years and the officers excuse for kicking her is that my sister was “moving to slow” coming from the jail elevator. Someone with a mental disability should not be handled with aggressive impatient treatment. My sisters life matters #blacklivesmatter This is Hevenly her life matters. Black women need protection now more than ever especially those who suffer from things out of their control. Her hearing is at 8:30am on October 16 in Solano County Crimal Court she is being charged unjustly from charges related to this event. If anybody out there has any referral resources or that hears this message & is willing to share in hopes of helping our family in this tragic situation please do! Even if it’s with words of encouragement. I know we aren’t the only family from Solano County that suffers from police brutality and from officers who strategically target those that are mentally disabled, black, and poor. #Blacklivesmatter 🖤🖤🖤

  • Mars & Nestle: Stop Using Child Slave Labor in Your Chocolate Products
    Americans consume almost 3 billion pounds of chocolate each year. We enjoy our favorite chocolate brands, like Hershey's, Snickers, Milky Way, and Twix, but most people do not know about the exploitative origin of these products. Shockingly, most of the chocolate products consumed in America are made using child slave labor. For too long, multinational chocolate producers have relied on child slave labor to harvest the millions of tons of cocoa beans needed for chocolate. In West Africa, tens of thousands of children are enslaved on cocoa plantations and forced to harvest cocoa beans in unsafe, exploitative working conditions, with little respite, and meager pay. We demand that this injustice must change. We cannot allow companies like Mars and Nestle to claim they value black lives when their supply chains are riddled with human rights violations and slave labor in West Africa. We need to join together and make our voices heard to stop this outrageous humans rights violation. Sign our petition to demand that companies like Mars and Nestle stop using child slave labor in their chocolate products! Image credit: Washington Post, "Cocoa's Child Laborers." June 5, 2019.
